Cougar attack reported

CRAIG LINDSAY Gazette Reporter

A Greenwood resident believes her livestock was attacked by cougars and is concerned that children and other animals could be next. The cougar in question went onto the Mathison property on July 4 and attacked a foal. The young horse survived but owner Ingrid Mathison said all the horses on the property are scared to venture too far away from the house. “My husband went out to feed the horses that morning and he noticed a scratch on one side (of the foal),” she said. “When my husband came in to the house, he mentioned it to me so I went outside and saw not only the scratch but three fairly deep wounds on the other side of the foal.” Mathison said she immediately contacted the conservation officer (Dave Webster) and a veterinarian (Ruth Simms) to check on the foal. “The vet came out and put nine stitches in and gave (the foal) some antibiotics,” she said. “The conservation officer came out and took pictures.” He got back to me later and told me it was probably a cougar attack, said Mathison. Mathison said that the foal is recovering well and is fortunate to be alive. She also said there

were no other attacks on her 16 horses. Mathison said cougars like to prey on the youngest and weakest yearlings. “Somewhere on our 160 acres (70 hectares), the cougar was probably hiding in the grass because it was so hot and jumped up and took advantage of the opportunity to attack,” she said. Mathison said she’s worried about more cougar attacks. Her property is near Crown land and she said there are many of kids on ATVs and bikes as well as lots of hikers. It could be a child next, she said, adding that she sees how nervous the horses are around the

property. “They’ve got 160 acres to roam around on with lots of water and a creek running through it,” she said. “Usually they go out and drink fresh water from the creek, but now they’re not even going out that far, which isn’t that far from our house, without us going out there. They’re staying really close. So now they’re basically on 40 acres.” Webster told the Gazette on Monday that he checked out the foal and that it was definitely attacked by a wild animal, though he could not confirm it was a cougar. “It looked like a brief encounter,” he said. “The animal, for whatever reason, let go after attacking the foal. Maybe it was chased off by the mother.” Webster said he has no plans to investigate further unless he sees evidence of other attacks. “It’s a large area in the wild where the horses are turned out,” he said. “There are bound to be wildlife encounters. The horses there are roaming out on 170 acres of land. It’s not fenced in. This is an area where wildlife such as cougars and bears are.” Simms, a veterinarian with the Kettle River veterinarian clinic in Grand Forks, agreed from the foal’s deep wounds that it was likely a cougar. “I figured it was a cougar, but it’s hard to say for sure,” she said.

Danger rating moderate to high

According to City of Grand Forks manager of development and engineering, there is no evidence of deterioration of the city dike system. Jim Holtz Photo

City of Grand Forks: No erosion issues with dike system KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The report on the City of Grand Forks’ dike system, recently sent to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO), was a positive one. Sasha Bird, city manager of development and engineering, reported that there was no evidence of deterioration, seepage, erosion or any other difficulty with either the dike or flood gates – inspections were carried out on April 30 and May 3. The only item that required further comment was the amount of vegetation that grows on or near the dike, in particular trees, whose roots might have a negative impact. Bird said she didn’t think trees were a huge issue as there were trees in many areas along the riverbank. “They’re probably keeping the bank intact because they’ve been there for so long,” she told the Gazette. “For the dike inspection, basically, all the diking authority wants to know is that the integrity of the dike is maintained at all times. In her report, Bird indicated that no harm has been done by any of the young or mature trees, but that all are monitored annually and pruned or eliminated when necessary. “It is felt,” Bird said in the report, “That removal of these trees and the associated root systems would cause more damage to the dike than dealing with the individual issues when they arise.” The city manager of development and engineering said that there were large portions of the dike with trees that were on private property but it was not in the city’s jurisdiction to enter on to

private property and maintain it. “We don’t look after private stuff, it would have to be up to the individual homeowners to take care of that,” she said. Based on the inspection, however, Bird said the dike seemed sound. “It all looks pretty good. We’ve done that section along Riverside Drive – we rip rapped (in 2008) to secure it and we also did that section along the trail by the community garden (in 2010) – we re-armoured that and the rest of it is pretty intact and pretty stable,” she said. Bird said that the dike looks like it could withstand high water, which has been known to occur in the spring. “It’s been doing pretty good so far. Along the river where there is no dike per se, the high water has caused erosion and that’s probably because of change in flow patterns and that’s kind of why we did that armouring by the community gardens. Because the river changed course and we had a (20 metre) right of way there and we lost (20 metres) plus a bit more,” she said. “That’s going to happen but the dike itself, I don’t think high water will affect it at all,” she said. “If we did have an extremely high water situation, that would be the time that we would definitely find out how the dike stands up.” Also, Bird said the city completes inspections using standards and guidelines described in the documents published by the provincial government. “We submit a compulsory report of inspections to the Office of the Inspector of the Dikes, who then assesses the adequacy of our maintenance program and the safety of the dikes,” she went on to say. – With files from Jim Holtz


Jewel Lake residents see outage PAT KELLY

Boundary Creek Times

At around 2:20 p.m. last Thursday (July 18) approximately 53 customers in the Jewel Lake area experienced an afternoon without electricity. According to Michael Allison, corporate communications advisor for FortisBC, the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene when smoke was reported rising from a power line. The fire department ensured the area was safe

and FortisBC arrived on the scene shortly after to begin assessment and repairs. The cause of the outage was determined to be a tree branch that had fallen across the wires due to winds in the area. The tree branch began smoking; however there was no fire. The branch was removed and power was restored to customers at 6:33 p.m. On the previous day, winds in the area had caused an outage for 47 customers due to tree branches on the line. Jewel Lake resident Mal Logan said the wind on Wednesday had been accompanied by hail three millimetres in diameter.

CRAIG LINDSAY Gazette Reporter

With temperatures rising, the Southeast Fire Centre is reporting a fire danger rating of moderate to high across their whole region, with pockets of extreme fire danger. The Southeast Fire Centre, which includes the Kootenay/Boundary area, has had 53 fires which have burnt 170 hectares so far this season, with 26 caused by lightning and 27 caused by people. “In the Boundary area we have seen seven fires so far this season,” said Jordan Turner, fire information officer for the fire centre. “Five were caused by lightning and two were person-caused.” Turner said there were 21 incidents this past weekend of improper or dangerous camp fires in the southeast area including unattended or abandoned camp fires. “Campers are being urged to be extra careful,” he said. “People need to follow proper regulations such as having eight litres of water on hand and having a hand tool, such as a shovel, to properly extinguish

the fire. Fires need to be cold to the touch before leaving the area.” Turner said it’s very difficult for Southeast Fire Centre to predict the severity of each forest fire season or where fires will burn. “Wildfire management needs public assistance to report on forest fires or unattended camp fires, or they could become an issue,” said Turner. To report a wildfire or unattended camp fire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks. Turner reminds people that open burning restrictions went out on July 8, which include burning of any waste/slash or other materials, stubble or grass fires of any size over any area, and the use of fireworks, sky lanterns, or burning barrels of any size or description. “Every person-caused fire is preventable and ties up valuable resources and may prevent our crews from responding quickly to a naturally occurring fire,” said Turner.

z Our View

Don’t take water safety lightly The mercury is rising and while it did rain recently in Grand Forks and surrounding area, the last week has been extremely sunny and warm. As is the tradition at this time of year, people load up their trucks with inner tubes and floatation devices, park the vehicles by bridges and spend a relaxing afternoon floating down the Kettle and Granby Rivers. Also, to the east at Christina Lake, the number of vessels on the water is increasing, with an RCMP summer constable patrolling the waters. Water safety is always important but it takes on more importance as it is the National Lifesaving Society’s designated National Drowning Prevention Week (July 20 to 28). There have been a number of drowning deaths reported on the news this past weekend (although not in the area) and it is creeping up on one year since a tragic tubing accident at Cascade Falls in the Christina Lake area and it is a reminder that people should be cautious with summer activities near water. The lifesaving society is quoted as saying there have been 43 drowning deaths this year as opposed to 25 at this time last year. Much like helmets on motorcycles and bicycles, people don’t always pay heed to safety on the water. While RCMP report that there seem to be less instances of either alcohol or lack of life-jackets recently, there have been reports of people consuming alcohol and not having a fire extinguisher in previous weeks. Graham Watt goes into to detail about things to be mindful of in his Kettle River Q&A column (page 12) this week – swim or tube with more than just one person, avoid jumping from bridges, wear life-jackets – and Grand Forks Recreation mentions that it has life-jackets available for those that need them (page 24). And while it all seem like common sense, water safety guidelines aren’t necessarily ones that people follow. Children often frown when their parents harp on them about safety but parents have their kids’ best interests at heart and the same can be said when it comes to water safety advice that is given. It might seem like nagging but the people giving the advice mean to keep people safe and not prevent fun. People are perfectly entitled to enjoy the water in the summer months, particularly in this area, but be wise and be safe. Stop the amount of drowning deaths.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to get a new mobile phone, as my old one would not accept or send out email anymore. I went to the appropriate dealer during a recent trip to Vancouver and the representative suggested I call a number to see if I could get the remaining year on my contract waived. It was likely a hardware problem and seeing as my phone was past warranty, would cost just as much as paying out the contract. I’ll spare the story of how the customer service rep I talked to wanted to remedy my situation by offering me more minutes, as opposed to repairing my phone or waiving the remaining year.

Don’t log Lynch Creek North area Editor: “A thing is right when it tends to increase the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community – It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” – Aldo Leopold. British Columbia Timber Sales decided to proceed with road building and logging into an area designated as part of a connectivity corridor and the last remaining wildlife safe zone outside of the Gladstone Provincial Park. The decision to proceed with development is based more on meeting timber harvest quotas than safeguarding habitat and wildlife. Mitigation science, that is what I like to call these socalled practices, will be used to make some alterations to the way in which the road is constructed and a few extra stems per hectare will be retained, (number of trees left in a cut block), to try and minimize disturbance to wildlife. The bottom line is that a road is a road, and roads allow access and an increase in human en-

counters with wildlife. Road densities within the Granby grizzly bear population unit (GBPU) is extensive, with 61 per cent of the area having a road density greater than 0.6 km/km2; higher than any other GBPU in the province. Road densities over 0.6 km/km2 are considered to be detrimental to grizzly bears. Additional road access will also affect already declining mule deer and critically low goat populations. As a rule, large to midsize carnivores are among the first to drop out of confined wildlife communities such as the GBPU and small safe zones such as the Granby and Gladstone Provincial Parks. The dispersal or slow disappearance of apex predators like the grizzly bear affects the entire food pyramid. The loss of these alters the balance and movement patterns of prey species, grazing pressures on vegetation, altering habitats and creating more instability for other species. The more we chop, road and develop surrounding habitat, the more we isolate existing safe zones of secure habitat. Connectivity and the freedom to roam are critically essential to the long-term sustainability of large carnivores like the grizzly. Large disconnected islands support smaller populations of wildlife. Roy Schiesser, Grand Forks


Canada Day rocked at City Park Editor: On June 28, I drove from Lethbridge to Grand Forks with my daughter and three of my girlfriends (two from Edmonton, one from Calgary). None of us had planned to spend the long weekend in Grand Forks this year, despite it being our hometown; however, when we heard that Waterlow Audio was once again holding a Canada Day concert – and that Ladyhawk would be returning to Grand Forks – we knew we had to be there. This is the third year that I have attended Zak’s Canada Day concert. This year was the best one yet, held in City Park, with a busy beer garden and no cover charge. City Park was the perfect venue for this concert, and Zak did an incredible job of putting together a great lineup, sticking to schedule, and doing the sound. From what I heard, the bands were all very happy as well. The sponsors of this event should be proud for having contributed to such a fun evening. I hope that this event is supported well into the future. Mary Butterfield Lethbridge, Alta.

Economic relationships are interconnected

Recently at a gathering with friends, someone commented to a friend about alternating her home between two places: working and living in Vancouver ROLY RUSSELL while also having a home at Christina Lake. She promptly and adamantly replied, “No, no, I work in Vancouver, but I live here!” That notion – being able to celebrate living here – is vital to community health. What does it mean to really be living here, in this place, and how can we do a good job of celebrating and improving what we have here? Some of you will remember a couple winters past, when avalanches shut down some of our transportation systems for a handful of days – no trucks came to town bearing shiny Chilean tomatoes, nor steaks from prairie feedlots. We do have the capacity to be producing these products locally (you may have to wait a tad longer for your early tomatoes and skip the feedlots, I suppose), but if we want reliable local production, we need to provide reliable local consumption. If you want the security of a vibrant local food system filling your fridge, you need to show local producers that you care about knowing what’s in your food; that you care about having good food accessible, and that you care about local economy. On the whole, we all need to do a better job of recognizing that the decisions about what we eat means a great deal to whomever is touched by the string of transactions between your wallet and the soil underneath those tomatoes. And what of that string of transactions? When you pay that local contractor to refinish your roof, he or she pays her employee, who in turn pays for local child care, who then pays to go listen to the band in town that night, who maybe then takes that money out of town. Conversely, when you fill up with fuel in Kettle Falls, those dollars are lost from our local economy immediately, and furthermore, no tax dollars, gas tax or otherwise, return to our community! This form of economic recycling within a community, where income continues to generate income, is called a local multiplier. Some coarse research indicates that if every family in the Boundary spent just $20 more per week on local food (while not spending any more on food in total), we would have $5 million more entering our local economies that would spur about $10 million more in local economic activity. And that’s not even addressing the jobs created! The same economics applies to other local enterprises, with slightly different numbers; whether it’s your local auto mechanic or the bike shop, it makes a big difference. So then, what’s it worth to spend a little more of your time, energy and money in our local communities? There are myriad examples around the globe of the financial, social, and environmental value of being more present in our local communities. Your local government is making some exciting moves in the right directions. For example, the City of Grand Forks recently adopted a local food charter, a noteworthy action solidifying their support for healthy local food and agricultural systems. So what about local procurement policies? How much is it worth to you to have a local contractor hired for regional district work, or a local florist creating our city flower baskets? If you think it makes sense for local government to “live here,” what about yourself? What’s your personal policy to help make this community healthier and more robust? This is all about living locally. Let’s try to ensure that we are present in our communities: through thoughtful financial transactions, compassionate social interactions, and awareness of the environment that surrounds us. I live here, and I’m proud of being a part of this. – Roly Russell is alternate Area D director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary

City Park domestic assault involves minors KARL YU

Gazette Editor

Grand Forks RCMP responded to a complaint about a domestic assault involving minors on July 17, at about 5:30 p.m. “Police were called to an assault, which occurred down at City Park,” explained Cpl. Richard Lanz of the Grand Forks RCMP. “Young people, young offenders, were down there and words were exchanged and one male (allegedly) ended up striking a female.” Lanz said the male was arrested, the matter is being investigated with possible assault charges being forwarded and added that both were under the age of 18. Names were withheld due to the fact that they were minors. Eholt motorcycle accident A motorcycle hit a ditch on July 19 in the Eholt area at about 1 p.m., say Grand Forks RCMP. “Police were called to single-vehicle motorcycle accident on Highway 3 by Eholt,” Lanz said. “The motorcycle was towing a small trailer behind it and it appears that, possibly, the trailer went off the paved portion of the road, which caused the motorcycle to lose control and go off the road into the ditch, strik-

ing a rock.” Lanz said injuries were sustained but were not life threatening and added that there wasn’t any additional information currently available. Tuber reportedly sees camera stolen in blink of an eye A tuber reported that a $650 camera was stolen from her vehicle as she was bringing her floatation device down to the water on July 18 at 2 p.m. “A vehicle stopped at Spraggett Bridge to go tubing. As the person was unloading her vehicle and going down to the river, somebody entered her vehicle and stole a Fuji camera from the vehicle,” Lanz said. “At this time, there are no suspects in the matter.” Lanz said the doors to the vehicle were unlocked because the person was bringing items down to the river. “Somebody was pretty brave. They must’ve been watching,” he went on to say. Loud music complaint On July 19, at about 10:30 p.m., Grand Forks RCMP were dispatched to a complaint of loud music on Whitehall Road. Police attended and while they initially didn’t hear anything, loud music could be heard a few minutes later. Officers located a party at a residence

on Whitehall Road and fortunately, a band that was performing was wrapping up its set and no charges were laid. Stolen tools from the Lake On Monday morning, a man came into the Grand Forks RCMP detachment to report that tools were stolen from his driveway on West Lake Drive at Christina Lake. Lanz said that the theft took place sometime on Saturday evening and there are currently not a lot of details available but if anyone has information, they are asked to call local police (250442-8288). RCMP continue to patrol Christina Lake With the summer season in full swing, RCMP continue to patrol Christina Lake to ensure boater safety. “Over the past week, several boats have been checked on Christina Lake. Quite a few boats were in compliance but there were 12 written warnings issued for people not being compliant with the Canada Shipping Act and three charges were laid,” explained Lanz, adding that the charges ranged from not having a boating licence to not having boat registration. He also said that there were no lifejacket or alcohol infractions.

City recommends five steps to save water z Local Submission


As the summer heats up, the City of Grand Forks wants to remind residents that water conservation is crucial, as drought and water supply issues can affect the local water system. There are five simple things you can do to conserve water and still maintain a beautiful lawn and garden: • Lawns and gardens require only 35 millimetres (about 1½ inches or enough to fill a tuna can) of water per week during warm weather. Less is needed during spring, fall, or cool weather. • Use a broom to clean your sidewalks and driveways rather than a hose. • Adjust your sprinklers so that water does not run down your driveway, sidewalks or street. • Collect water in a rain barrel and use it to water outdoor plants. • Water only in accordance with the city’s sprinkling regulations (evennumbered addressed homes sprinkle on even numbered days and odd numbered addressed homes sprinkle on odd

numbered days). “Saving a drop can help save a lot. There are significant costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps and treat it to be safe and clean. Conserving water will reduce those peak demands and help reduce the cost to maintain and operate the water system,” says Hal Wright, manager of operations with the City of Grand Forks. “We are in mid-summer, the temperatures are high and people have their sprinklers going full tilt. The draw on our water system is at its highest for the year so it’s very important that people conserve water,” he adds. The water that is used by each and every resident comes from deep water wells – as deep as 76.2 metres (250 feet). Currently, the city pumps water to a reservoir located in the east end of Grand Forks. The electricity costs associated with pumping, as well as wear on the pumps would be reduced if water demands could be reduced. An average Grand Forks resident uses about 720 litres per day of water – that’s more than 3,000 cups of water every day. That’s also about one-third more than the average British Columbian. “The little things you do can help to reduce water use, save on costs to operate the system and still allow you to have a healthy lawn and garden,” adds Wright.

DBA gets ready to go ‘Back to the Wild West’

CRAIG LINDSAY Gazette Reporter

The Grand Forks Downtown Business Association (DBA) is putting on the wild west-themed event, which will feature several fun events for the whole family, on Friday, Aug. 9. The DBA, which formed in January, held a board meeting on July 18 to discuss several projects, including the upcoming the wild west event. “Our Back to the Wild West Day is really coming together,” said Carol Lajoie, chair of the DBA. “It’s been a lot of work but we’re making great progress.” The board meets once a month and has seven board members and two liaisons, one with the city and one with the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce. The idea for the wild west came out of the old moonlight madness event. “We were struggling to get that going this year,” said Lajoie. “Maureen Paquet of the GEM Theatre was really keen to organize a downtown event and we had the Kettle River Festival of the Arts commit-

tee approach us about doing an event. So we took some of Maureen’s ideas and the Kettle River Festival’s ideas and our past experiences with moonlight madness and created the event we’re planning. The wild west theme was Maureen’s idea and we thought it would be a fun theme; an easy theme. It’s something everyone can get involved it. It’s also tied in with the movies she’s bringing in that week.” The Lone Ranger will be playing at 7:30 p.m., and Fievel Goes West is playing at 2 p.m. Some of the many events planned include a pancake breakfast by the Masonic Hall; a bicycle obstacle and safety course; a cow milking contest; a performance by the Hip Sisters and a Luminosity glow and fire show. “The planning is going great,” said Lajoie. “We’re very excited. We really want to get people out to the downtown core. We expect the stores are going to have some great deals on during the event. Hopefully it’ll create some great buzz for the downtown.” Attending the meeting from the Kettle River Festival of the Arts committee was

We have so much down here and people don’t pay attention. If they can get stuff happening downtown, people can bring their kids at 10 a.m. and set them loose to have fun. I think it’ll be fun. I don’t think we appreciate our town enough.”

COMMUNITY Be safe on the river in summer If you ask visitors why they come to the Boundary in the summer, chances GRAHAM are they will WATT tell you they float the rivers, swim, or enjoy camping, fishing and boating at any number of our lakes, big and small. One fine day of canoeing between the border and Atwood Bridge last year we passed over 130 floaters, rafters, tubers, as well as dozens of people swimming, fishing, lounging and jumping. There are few places in the world with such clean, warm, swimmable waters, and visitors and residents celebrate that every summer. “I have two friends up here that still rave about floating the Kettle (River) with their two kids years ago – a lifetime memory for them,” said one respondent to last fall’s water survey. A number of small beaches and swimming holes are scattered along the rivers, both close to town and very remote. As former resident Graham Knutson recalled, “Growing up, I would go for a run or bike ride around town, then jump in the Granby at Sandy Beach or Riverside – refreshing! We love coming back here in the summer for the rivers.” A few tips can help a fun and beautiful day stay fun for everyone: • Always swim and float with a buddy, and let others know where you will be getting in and out of the water. Know and avoid going anywhere near the location of river hazards such as rapids and waterfalls. • Always know the depth of water you are jumping into, and beware of submerged

logs, boulders and other hazards as you are floating or paddling. • Avoid jumping from bridges – water depth, debris and other hazards can change from week to week. • Wear a properly fitted life-jacket or other personal floatation device when boating. Life-jackets are available to borrow for free through the Grand Forks Recreation Department • Wear sun protection, bring lots of water and snacks and bring a trash bag to pick up after yourself, or others! • Drinking and swimming or floating can be very dangerous – be safe while in the water. • Be respectful of private property along the river and near access points. – Graham Watt is the coordinator of the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, and is working with a Stakeholder Advisory Group from across the region to develop the plan.

Jim Hamilton says he’s grateful to God for growing his corn as high as an elephant’s eye. He started the corn in his greenhouse in March in his solarium porch window and transplanted it after the late frost. Hamilton says it’s heritage corn and hasn’t been genetically modified. It was grown in richly composted soil with leaf mulch covering, which was gathered last fall. Hamilton says the corn has grown about another 30 cm since the photo was taken.

Invasive plants troublesome z Local Submission


Did you know that baby’s breath, bachelor ’s buttons, yellow flag iris, and oxeye daisy (among many others)

are all invasive plant species? This means that these plants easily escape gardens and invade surrounding territories, where they outcompete native plant species. One of the most important steps in the battle against these invasive plants is prevention, and one of the best ways to prevent introduction of these species is to grow non-invasive alternatives in your garden instead. For example, Russian olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia) is an ornamental tree, native to Asia, that was introduced to North America because of its attractive silver leaves, cold hardiness, and drought tolerance. However, this species is now invasive in Southern Interior B.C., where it uses up limited water and displaces native vegetation. Russian olive has edible berries that attract wildlife and contribute to its spread. Plants that can be grown in the garden instead of Russian olive include Scouler’s Willow (Salix scouleriana) and Silver Buffaloberry (Shepherdia argentea). To learn more about beautiful non-invasive plants, Google “Grow me instead B.C.” When choosing plants for your garden or yard, be suspicious of exotic plants promoted as “fast-spreaders” as these are often invasive plants and be cautious when using wildflower seed mixes as these often contain invasive plant

seeds. If you already have invasive plants in your garden, you can control them by hand pulling or digging them out. Also, make sure to deadhead flowers, seed pods, and berries of aggressive plants in order to keep the seed from spreading.

One Book, One Kootenay voting deadline Aug. 2 The popular Kootenaywide book club, One Book, One KOOTENAY Kootenay LIBRARY (OBOK), has FEDERATION kept regional readers busy trying to decide which of the three shortlisted books should get the nod. Each year, booklovers read, discuss and vote on the book they think all Kootenay folk should read. The deadline for voting for the 2013 One Book, One Kootenay selection is Aug. 2. This year’s shortlist is comprised of Never Going Back by Antonia Banyard, Confined Space by Deryn Collier and The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure by Bruce Kirkby. Since May, these Kootenay authors have been reading in libraries across the region, either in person or virtually through film. With several weeks left to read and vote, the Kootenay Library Federation that hosts OBOK is urging people to pick up copies of the books at their local libraries,

and vote. They are all good reads: Collier’s mystery Confined Space introduces smalltown coroner Bern Fortin as he investigates a murder at a brewery; The Dolphin’s Tooth: A Decade in Search of Adventure follows Kirkby through 15 years of high adventure in some of the world’s edgier places and Banyard’s novel Never Going Back brings together a group of high school friends after 10 years of separation as they converge for a friend’s memorial. The 2013 selected OBOK author is celebrated in a tour of select Kootenay Libraries in the fall. “It’s great to be able to celebrate the talented writers of the Kootenay in this way,” said Kootenay Library Federation director Joanne Richards. “With One Book, One Kootenay, everybody wins.” This is the fifth anniversary of OBOK, a region-wide book club supported by public libraries in the East and West Kootenay and the Columbia Basin Trust – is the place to find information about the books and interviews with the authors, follow the results of the vote and find out where to catch the selected author reading at a library near you.

More than just soccer at camp CRAIG LINDSAY Gazette Reporter

With over 70 kids registered in the first year, it’s clear the Boundary Youth Soccer Camp was a big success. “This is the first camp we’ve ever run,” said Tracy Davies, technical director for Boundary Youth Soccer Association. “We had a really good turn out. We had room for 90 kids and we ended up with almost 80. We even had kids coming along the way in the middle of week and joining up after hearing about it.” The camp featured plenty of soccer instruction from top-notch coaches but also had a variety of different activities ranging from California kickball to frisbee to tennis to swimming at the lake.

The camp was split into three different age groups, ranging from six years to 14 years. Older youth were recruited as counsellors, along with local area coaches. “We’ve got awesome counsellors here that are working with the kids and our professional soccer instructor Dylan Tooby who has shown our kids lots of great skills,” she said. “I think everyone had a great time.” Davies said the main idea behind the camp is to let the kids come out and have fun in a healthy environment and to also try out different sports. Even with an impromptu thunderstorm on Wednesday, July 17, camp counsellors were able to adjust and move everyone inside for indoor soccer and other games.

“With the rain, we went to Plan B and everyone seemed to like that,” she said. “We watched a movie and did some crafts for awhile. We really got to know each other that way.” For nine-year-old Paris Hastings of Grand Forks, the soccer camp was a great way to spend a week in July. “It’s been good,” she said. “I liked all the activities like soccer, swimming and beach volleyball. I like that they have a bunch of fun activities that you can go out and do so you don’t have a boring summer.” Hastings, who has played soccer for one year, also enjoyed getting the chance to meet new people at the camp. The camp wrapped up Friday afternoon with a beach party at Christina Lake with parents and siblings.

A favourite summer pastime for locals is floating down the Granby and the Kettle Rivers. It’s a great recreational experience people can enjoy with family and friends. People pack up the preferred floating devices, life-jackets, coolers and sunscreen and head out for an adventure as we take in the scenery and good company. Residents and visitors to the Boundary also spend time at Christina Lake. They enjoy being on the water skiing, boarding, swimming and playing along the shoreline. They are fortunate to have so many options to beat the heat. Whether planning a trip tubing down the river or spending a day at the lake, it is important to be aware of the risks and be prepared to face them. No one leaves the house expecting trouble; however, when people and bodies of water are involved, there is always an element of risk.

When tubing or boating, it is important for everyone on board to be wearing a life-jacket. The rivers change almost daily. The water depth, current and shoreline is effected by the weather and floating debris. Even a strong swimmer can be caught off guard and without a life-jacket they increase the potential of becoming a drowning victim. If you do not have enough life-jackets for friends and family members, Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) will be happy to assist you. There is a free loan program providing a variety of life-jacket sizes from infant to extra large adult. Interested people can stop by the recreation office or give a call and GFREC will set people up with what is needed for the safety of loved ones. Boating opens the door for a variety of activities from the serenity of fishing to the adrenaline rush of tubing and skiing. With the increased boating activity on the lake in the summer, it is important to follow the rules of the waterway and include all the safety gear a boat requires on board. If people are operating a boat or watercraft, a Boat Operators’ Certificate is required. Grand Forks Recreation pro-

vides the opportunity for individuals to study and write the BOAT exam at their convenience. A manual can be purchased and once someone has studied the material, they can call the GFREC office and a time will be set up when one can write the test. Upon successful completion of the exam, people will walk away with a temporary Boat Operators Card that very day. Developing swim strength and endurance, combined with knowledge of safety skills is a win-win combination for everyone. Registering for lifesaving courses is taking responsibility to the next level. Participating in leadership courses like the Bronze Medallion and Cross camps provides individuals with the training they need to save lives. The Bronze Camp is taking place at Christina Lake public beach July 29 to Aug. 2. The course runs Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take the opportunity to educate yourself in water safety. What you know and the skills you perfect may save you or someone you care about. Contact GFREC for additional information on boat and water safety programs. You can also view the summer recreation brochure on our website at

Scared Silly... George Manson of Grand Forks recently wrapped up his stint as district deputy grand master with the Harmony Masonic Lodge.


R. Ross, PG Chaplain was the Lodge Chaplain in the early 1900s; grandfather George A. Manson – a stonemason in charge of constructing the stone wall around the old court house – was a member from 1904 to 1942; and his father Walter R. Manson , a long-time Gazette foreman, was Worshipful Master in 1950-51. His mother – the late Sister Iris Manson – was a Past Worthy Matron of Evangeline Chapter 31 Order of the Eastern Star here in Grand Forks. George and wife Ruth reside in the Grand Forks Nursery area. He handed the reins of authority to his successor – Right Wor. Bro. David Hearn of Ymir Lodge No. 31, Salmo at the Grand Lodge Communications in Burnaby in June.

In Loving Memory

Marie Reibin March 27, 1938 - July 23, 2004 Forever in our hearts A million times we needed you, A million times we cried. If love alone would have saved you, You would have never died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place, No one can ever fill. A light from our household is gone, A voice from our love is stilled, A place in our vacant home, Which never can be filled. Some may think you are forgotten, Though on earth you are no more, But in our memory you are with us, As you always were before. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, A part of us went with you, The day God called you home. Your precious memories Are for keepsakes, With which we never part, God has you safely in his keeping, But we have you forever in our hearts.

Loved and remembered today and always. John Reibin & Family

Donald Leslie


Donald Leslie Reed was born on February 22, 1962 in Soellingen, Germany and passed away on May 29, 2013 in Grassland, Alberta. Don’s working career spanned both coasts from Vancouver to Halifax and up to Fort McMurrary. He was an active and influential member in each of the communities he resided in, being involved in the Masonic lodges, Ashlar Club, the Shrine, Royal Arch Masons, Eastern Star, Ducks Unlimited and the church. Don enjoyed the outdoors, especially taking his dog duck hunting or going elk/deer hunting with friends. What Don lacked in height he made up for in heart. He could always be easily recognized in his camouflage baseball cap, with an infectious smile. He had an enthusiasm that was easily spread to everyone he met, and he was known for getting things done. He leaves behind Sheri, his wife of 12 years, and their four children, Bryan, Jared, Andrew and Katelyn. He is also survived by his parents Gordon and Cecile Reed; sister Karen (Clive) Bailey; motherin-law Celia Weishaupt; sister-in-law Jennifer (Jason) Bolen; 4 nephews, Colin, Austin, Allan Bailey and Tyler Bolen; and 3 nieces, April and Alena Bailey, and McKenzie Bolen, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. A Memorial Service and Celebration of Don’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall, 7353 6th Street, on July 27, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the charity of your choice.

Recently, Wisdom Master Maticintin has been teaching residents and visitors to HÜMÜH’s Skycliffe Monastery/Life Science Centre about the most powerful love of all. These teachings are called the Heartbeat Teachings, which can transform a person’s view of life to one of acceptance and unconditional love. The practice of the Heartbeat Teachings begins simply with a focus on quieting the mind and greeting every person or situation with an inner silent expression of the most powerful love of all, “I love you unconditionally.” As the wisdom master guides residents and visitors in this practice of love, a resonance with all of life comes alive, and there is a recognition of the commonalities that we share with all life forms. As these insights multiply, participants begin to see how their every thought, word, feeling and action can either hurt or uplift whomever or whatever we connect with, either in person or at a distance. And so, one of the gifts of the Heartbeat Teachings is to see the interconnectedness of all life and to be inspired to inwardly express this most powerful love to all sentient beings, whether it be family, co-workers, animals, or the smallest bug. The wisdom master helps us see that, “You honour the sameness because that is all of us together as one. It keeps us from being separate, because it is not ‘your’ life force and ‘this other’ life force, It is the same life force. It is the same light that lives within the whole.” As we continue to practice the most powerful love of all, our view of life is broadening. There is a fresh harmony and unison with life that is enriching our experience in countless ways, large and small. We find that we are no longer operating so unconsciously within our daily lives from the autopilot of the old, ingrained view that we are separate from one another. The truth of the interconnectedness of all life is growing within us. This summer at Skycliffe, the wisdom master continues to unfold the Heartbeat Teachings, revealing that the most powerful love of all is a love that is universally unconditional. This love is truly a jewel, a multi-faceted prism of light that is so powerful it can transmute the energy of all that it touches. Each Teaching of the wisdom master shows a different facet of this jewel, which penetrates the consciousness in a way that opens body, mind, and spirit to the reality of this most powerful love of all. We are finding that, with these practices, life feels richer than we have ever experienced before, and there is an inspiration to live the Heartbeat Serving the community since 1936 Teachings for the upliftment of all sentient beings. The wisdom master has often said that unconditional love is the “glue” that holds all life together. If you are interested in learning more about living from that central focus within you that is the one same light of all that exists, we invite you to come to Skycliffe this summer and take the first step towards the most powerful love of all. Blaine R. Krist Our staff is committed to You are also welcome to simply drop by and your complete satisfaction. enjoy a couple hours of quiet time on the grounds. We pride ourselves on the HÜMÜH’s Skycliffe Monastery/Life Science quality of our service, LOWEST PRICE, and our Centre is open to visitors every day from 9 a.m. dedication to the community. to 4 p.m. with teachings at 11:45 a.m. For direc“We Invite You To Compare” tions to Skycliffe, as well as, information about 5920 Kootenay Street retreats, or Sunday lunch reservations email Oliver, B.C. or call 1-800-336(Same location since 1974) Monday to Friday 6015.
