Dowland bankruptcy hurts By JOSH MASSEY Local companies have lost hope that they will ever see the money owed to them by the departed and now bankrupt construction giant Dowland. Documents released by their international receiving company Alvarez & Marsal Canada Inc. show Dowland left 34 local businesses owed a total of nearly $700,000 at the time of their bankruptcy in May for the work they performed on the Dasque-Middle hydroelectric project southeast of Terrace. The documents made public on

the receiver’s website show that Dowland’s three subsidiary companies sank under a staggering amount of debt. The repayment of Terrace subcontractors, who are listed as unsecured creditors, would happen only after the secured creditors are repaid. The statements show Dowland Industrial Works owes over $50 million, including $21 million to secured creditor Royal Bank of Canada. The bankrupt company’s assets are valued at $13,823,499. The other two subsidiaries—

Dowland N.W.T. Limited and Dowland Contracting—also owe tens of millions to a long list of creditors in the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alberta. Rob Dykman, owner of the Terrace’s Coast Mountain Wireless and chair of the Terrace Economic Development Association, said that Dowland pulled out of Terrace with 45 of his two-way radios still in their vehicles, a total of about $50,000 worth of gear and rental costs. “I’m still looking at my options here about what to do with that. It is still technically stolen property.

They hightailed it with my stuff,” Dykman said. “Unfortunately sometimes with larger companies that come in from out of town it doesn’t necessarily mean they are always secure. I think that’s the biggest thing I learned, that no one is beyond going into the receivership, big or small,” he said. “I think companies in Terrace are going to be a little more cautious in letting the amount owing by certain companies get out of hand.” Dowland was the second prime contractor to try their hand at the

20 megawatt run-of-river project located about 25 kilometres southeast of Terrace and owned by Calgary-based Veresen. Another large contractor called Surespan pulled out in January 2012, filing a $2 million legal claim against Veresen soon after. Terrace companies performed timber clearing, digital communication setup, fuel supply, waste management and many other services for Dowland, who promised payment in several memos sent following their sudden withdrawal to Alberta in March.

Murder under investigation By AMARA JANSSENS

investigators conduct a line search of the front lawn where the homicide took place. The victim was discovered on the front porch of the home, seen here behind blue tarp.

Terrace’s first homicide in a year-and-a-half has rocked residents of a south side neighbourhood. On Tuesday, July 23 police and paramedics received a 911 call to respond to a home in the 2800 block of Sparks Street at 1:30 a.m. When first responders arrived, they found a caucasian male thought to be in his 20s who had suffered what police called “significant trauma.” The victim was on the front porch of the home, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police had yet to identify the body, or the cause of the death, as of late last week, but did confirm it was criminal in nature and ruled it a homicide. Since last Tuesday, the house where the homicide occurred, and the immediate neighbouring homes were behind a police line as police searched for evidence. Investigators conducted a detailed line search of the front lawn of the home on July 25, where four officers stood in a line, took a step, crouched to look for evidence and then took another step to ensure ev-

ery inch of the lawn had been examined. According to an officer at the scene, the long grass made this task especially challenging. Police said a post mortem medical examination would be completed this week, which should identify the victim and possible cause of death. The General Investigation Section and Forensic Identification Section of the Terrace RCMP have been working closely together along with the BC Coroners Service. As of late last week, the police line was still up and this section of Sparks Street remained closed to thru traffic. However, Terrace RCMP Inspector Dana Hart, said the occupants of the homes behind the police line were able to have access to their homes. Neighbours of the house where the death occurred allege there were drug connections as the house saw frequent traffic coming and going, however police have not confirmed if there are any drug connections. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Terrace RCMP (250-638-7400) or CrimeStoppers.

Rail crossing reopens AFTER ALMOST a month and a half of traffic congestion the Frank St. level rail crossing is finally open, after crews removed the concrete barriers last Wednesday, July 24. The only restriction is on vehicles longer than 12 metres— they are still restricted from crossing northbound from Frank St. onto Highway 16. “The restriction is only for northbound traffic,” said Terrace's chief administrative officer Heather Avison at the regular council meeting last night. “The long traffic will actually be able to turn at Frank off the highway, but they can't access the highway off of Frank St.” The city announced Monday, July 22 they had struck a deal with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to build a new integrated traffic signal similar to the one on Kenney St., and will share the $350,000 cost. Once these new traffic lights get installed next spring the final restriction on long truck traffic crossing northbound will be lifted as well. Steve Smyth, who led a coalition of business owners called the West Keith Business Group, who petitioned the city, said that the alliance is happy but still quite concerned about the continued restriction. “Our group is satisfied. We certainly appreciate the work the administration has put into making that happen relatively quickly. Sometimes things happen a little slowly in the bureaucratic world and we appreciate the effort. Obviously we're not happy with the restrictions

on Northbound traffic. We still have northbound traffic routed through Kenney St. and Sande overpass which in our opinion is just as dangerous as the Frank St. Crossing. So the long term solution is to have another grade separation be that an overpass or a fly over or level crossing at a better location. I think we need to keep our eye on that ball because that is a long-term solution. We are nowhere near finished with growth in this area,” he said. The mayor and council are pleased with the deal. “Very, very good. Excellent work,” mayor David Pernarowki said, congratulating council and staff for their behind-the-scenes negotiating with government. “I'm pleased that we were able to work with the City of Terrace so quickly,” said B.C. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone in a joint press release.

The Frank St. rail crossing has been closed since June 11 when CN Rail responded to an order from Transport Canada to block it following two near miss incidences between trains and trucks stopped on the crossing. There was some discussion during the July 22 council meeting about enforcing the restrictions. Councillor James Cordeiro asked if Transport Canada might order the block again to CN if drivers disobey the new signs. “If it does become an issue of compliance with the signage is there a possibility that it could be revoked and the section re-closed completely?” he said. Avison responded that, “If there were another incident, yeah, they would likely reissue the order.” Spring 2014 is the most likely start date for construction of the new traffic lights.

ATV accident victim moves forward with recovery A YOUNG man who suffered a head injury in an ATV accident earlier this year is home and looking forward to getting back to work. Robert Keeler has been home since May 26 and will be taking speech therapy starting in August as he’s still having trouble finding his words and may be able to get back to work in a few months. He suffered a head injury when he was riding on an ATV that was being towed on Penner St. by another ATV when it rolled and he was thrown off, said Terrace RCMP about the February 18 accident at that time. Robert, his girlfriend Kristin Pearce and a friend had been riding their quads at King’s Pit Feb. 18 and had run out of gas, said family members at that time. They decided that one ATV would tow the other one home, a short distance away, said family. A winch on the first ATV was tied to the second ATV with a rope running under the first quad back to the second quad. Robert only had one helmet so he took it off and gave it

to his girlfriend, who was a passenger on the first quad. The rope went slack, got wound up in the first quad’s tire and stopped it dead. Robert, who was steering the second quad, was thrown from it. He was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital and Robert then transferred to Vancouver. “We thought when he left Terrace he would return an organ donor,” said his mom Brenda Keeler. Two weeks after he was in hospital, he recognized what had happened and where he was but it took a while before he believed he’d been in an accident, she said. He would see a photo of himself after the accident and say it hadn’t happened, but when he finally saw himself in the mirror, it started to sink in, said Brenda. He doesn’t remember the accident or his time in hospital when he first got there, she

said. It also took a while to remember he and his girlfriend had a baby but once he realized it, he was anxious to be reunited with his daughter, she said. Doctors were impressed with how quickly he came along – he was told he could be in hospital in Keeler Vancouver for three months but was out of Vancouver General Hospital in three weeks. He spent several weeks at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre. Since he’s been home, he’s been shooting hoops, going for hikes and cooking sometimes, said Brenda. Contact sports are not allowed so he doesn’t hit his head – doctors had removed part of his skull to relieve pressure on his brain from swelling and it will take some time to heal, said Brenda. One big thing for the family is seeing that his sense of humour has returned, she said.

“He’s very funny and always kept us laughing,” said aunt Caroline Lozinski. He doesn’t know yet if he will be back riding ATVs again but his mom says if he never got on one again, that would be OK with her. He works at Skeena Sawmills and his doctor said he could be back at work in six months to one year, but Keeler thinks it could be sooner than that. He’s always determined to do things on his own. “He’s always been a bit of a go-getter,” said Brenda. The family is thankful for all the moral support and prayers from friends and others too. “I’ve never seen so many people pray for one person,” said Lozinski, adding that included relatives in other towns Robert had never met but who had their whole churches praying for him. While in hospital, he said it felt like he had another chance at life. He’s especially thankful to his girlfriend for coming down to the hospital and being by his side through it all and his aunt Debbie Nigh for bringing their baby down to the hospital.

THE FIRST Heritage Park Kids Culture Camp on July 17 saw 20 kids bussed to the Nass Valley, where they toured the Nisga’a Museum, ate a salmon barbecue, hiked the Tree Mould Trail, and listened to elders tell Nisga’a stories about salmon, the volcano, the lava beds, and the importance of respect and honouring your culture. The group then returned to Heritage Park Museum, where we watched the movie ‘A Night at the Museum’ in the Dance Hall before sleeping over on the museum grounds. “It surpassed our expectations,” said Heritage Park Museum curator Kelsey Weibe, of the program that looks to empower underprivileged kids. Here are some of the participants viewing the permanent exhibit at the Nisga’a Museum.

Company’s bankruptcy leaves few options

And local business owner Rob Geier, of Geier Waste Services, is still smarting from the $20,000 loss he took after working with Dowland. He had a written contract with Dowland that means nothing now that the company is in receivership, he said. “I think all the local businesses are more cautious now about extending terms to companies that aren’t a known quantity, right?” Geier said. “There’s all this out-of-town work coming in. We just have to be more cautious. Do reference checks. Give 90 days before they have to pay.” David Pruden, co-owner of Terrace’s Northwest Fuels—a company left $88,000 in the hole—said he is moving forward and not dwelling on the loss too much. “I’m disappointed, that’s all I really want to say about it. Unfortunately once they declare bankruptcy there isn’t a lot of recourse for us. That’s all I have to say about that.” As for the current progress of the Dasque-Middle hydroelectric project, Veresen spokesperson Dorreen Miller said in March that the project needs to be completed this fall in order to begin generating power for BC Hydro in 2014. In an email last week Miller said that, “we have engaged replacement contractors and continue to move forward with completing the civil works and the balance of the project. While the last six months have been challenging, we believe we have turned a corner. We’re hopeful that with favourable weather conditions on our side, we will make significant progress towards completing the project over the coming months.” A previous statement by BC Hydro official Simi Heer stated that, “There are consequences if the power is not delivered on time.” The Dowland empire spanned several provinces

and its financial troubles hindered major projects including hospital and water treatment plant construction in the Yukon and Nunavut. Since Dowland’s departure, local and visiting companies working on the $75 million project have been doing work directly for Veresen. “We’re using several contractors to complete the remainder of the project,” Miller said.

Give me shelter

C

Lack of affordable housing is linked to perpetuating homelessness in Terrace, B.C. By Amara Janssens

lose to 20 years ago, a push to open Terrace’s first homeless shelter was successful after Daisy Wesley, a homeless woman, died of hypothermia on Greig Avenue in November 1992. Although Terrace now has Ksan Place, an extreme weather shelter, and a transition house, Robert McVey, housing manager at Ksan Place says the homeless situation has not improved. Places like the Ksan Emergency Shelter are over capacity, and with a lack of low income housing in Terrace, people have no choice but to stay at the shelter or on the streets for potentially many years. Each night, Ksan takes in an average 24 people despite funding from BC Housing for only 16 beds, by letting people crash on the couch or floor. They also provide dinner for up to 40 people each night. Those staying in Ksan receive three meals per day, snacks and access to laundry and shower facilities. But Ksan is for those who do not take issue with rules, Casey Eys, a homeless outreach coordinator with Terrace and District Community Services Society (TDCSS), explained. “Lots of people have issues with rules so they choose the street,” said Eys. Such rules include an 11 p.m. curfew, and no drugs or alcohol. However during the winter months (October through March) when the situation becomes critical, an extreme weather emergency shelter opens up for 16 hours each day and unlike Ksan Place operates as a wet shelter, meaning alcohol is permitted so long there are no safety risks. Part of the issue is that with big industrial projects making headlines, there’s been an influx of job seekers coming to Terrace in search of employment, McVey said. “Word on the street is just come to Terrace and you’ll get a job,” McVey said. But that’s not always the case. What McVey is finding is that when some workers arrive in Terrace they need to upgrade their skills, they need special tickets, or first aid, and then find themselves jobless and subsequently homeless shortly after arriving. Ksan Place says they do what they can to help people staying at the shelter, such as paying for vocational certificates or training to upgrade skills necessary for employment. However, the biggest hiccup according to Ksan and TDCSS in breaking the cycle of homelessness is the lack of low income housing in the city. And since about 60 per cent of people staying at Ksan have been diagnosed with some type of mental illness, many of these people cannot live on their own. Ksan works to develop support networks and skills that can then be taken into two of Ksan’s longterm accommodation buildings: Ksan Residences and Mountain View Housing. But for those not in transition into longterm housing, the hunt for permanent housing can be difficult. Eys figures there are 300 under-housed individuals in Terrace. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation states the vacancy rate in Terrace for a one-bedroom apartment is three per cent, however Eys believes the rate is actually closer to zero, partially due to the large

Here’s melVin Perry serving up soup at the TDCSS Living Room Project. Perry serves meals a couple of times a week, and also knows first hand the challenges of living in a place with few affordable housing options. work projects. “I have seen some places double in price,” Eys said, speaking to the high rent prices. The City of Terrace’s Housing Action Plan, finalized February of this year, states the vacancy rate for multi-family homes and apartments has dropped from 20 per cent in 2005 to below three per cent where it currently sits. This spike in rent prices is hitting people on fixed incomes the hardest. Social Assistance pays $510 per month, however the going rate for a single bedroom apartment is between $600-$1000. For a family needing more space, the average rent for a three bedroom house appears to be around $1500, according to a survey of rental postings. But finding a vacant place is only part of the battle – finding one that is affordable, and not run down, is another factor. “We’re getting landlords renting their broken down houses,” Eys said, noting he believes it’s a common problem in Terrace where some landlords take advantage of tenants who can’t afford to live anywhere else. One man who is living with his sister and is on income assistance is Melvin Perry. He said that finding a place to stay is the hardest part, and finding one that isn’t run down is even harder. And Clayton Cecil, who has gone through

Ksan Place and was assisted in upgraded his vocational training, explained that some of these run down rental places are being referred to as “Little Harlem” by some. Terrace City Council has recently addressed this issue with the implementation of new bylaws that can fine landlords who fail to keep their buildings in acceptable living conditions. Violations include, among others, poor ventilation, cold living premise, and insufficient tap temperature. And although housing is an ongoing issue, one silver lining is that there is no indication that the homeless are going hungry. “There’s no need for people in this town to go hungry,” Eys said. TDCSS has commended the community of Terrace’s work to feed the poor, noting various church organizations and individual food donations. TDCSS runs the Living Room Project, a Monday-Friday ‘soup kitchen’ that serves anywhere form 60-100 meals per day. The food is donated each week from Save-On-Foods and Safeway, as well as from individuals. Operating out of the Old Carpenter Hall, this project also offers a food share program, clothing donation program and vaccination and health program offered through Northern Health.

“I’ve been coming here for two years,” Linda Maitland said. But in addition to a warm meal, Maitland comes for safety reasons and for the social element, she said. For her this is one of the few public places in town where she feels truly safe, and welcome to just to hang out. The Living Room Project is just one of several free food services available in Terrace. The Ksan Housing Society serves three meals per day plus snacks for people staying at the aforementioned Ksan Emergency Shelter, but they also serve meals to those in need from the community. Local churches also run free food services during certain days of the week. And Eys explained that someone who knew the connections could get at least one meal a day through these various volunteer run and donated food programs. “I’ve been doing this [volunteering] for 14 months now and for a lot of people this is their only meal for the day,” added Perry, who also volunteers with the Living Room Project said. However, during the winter months especially the lack of affordable low-income housing becomes the biggest challenge for these outreach workers. “I’ve seen more people die on this job than I did as a logger,” Eys said.

EDITORIAL

Rail Safe WITH the full magnitude of the Lac-Mégantic tragedy in Quebec having set in, rail safety and the safe transportation of oil in general has become one of the big national topics this summer. News of the tragic loss of life and the pollution of their downtown core is especially poignant for towns located in industrialized areas with rail yards near town centres. Terrace does share some similarities with Lac-Mégantic in terms of its small population and rail system running through its heart. Indeed, many small Canadian towns sprang up around our railways and they still provide a symbolic reminder of the historical forces that shaped our modern world. Last week, Transport Canada announced a list of new rules for trains, mainly related to safe operation. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities is also establishing a National Municipal Rail Safety Working Group that will include municipal associations here in the northwest. While we tend to take the presence of safe rail for granted, derailments do happen fairly regularly, and the fact of the matter is that dangerous goods do pass through the Terrace train yard all the time. Here lies another persuasive argument for building a new overpass.

But nobody told me I’d need a lap belt

S

uppose you’re waiting to be picked up for your introductory ride on HandyDART. You’re sitting in a wheelchair borrowed from Terrace’s Canadian Red Cross Health Equipment Loan Cupboard. You have a medical appointment for your first follow-up since an injury confined you to a wheelchair. But when HandyDART arrives, the driver refuses to take you. “Sorry,” he says. “You need to be wearing a lap belt.” But your borrowed wheelchair didn’t come with a lap belt. And no one mentioned to ride HandyDart you would need a lap belt. Terrace’s Red Cross Loan Cupboard lacks sufficient lap belts to outfit all their wheelchairs. As well, you must ask for a lap belt if you think you might need one; Loan Cupboard volunteers are not permitted to inform you that a lap belt is mandatory when riding HandyDART. (Even a man’s sturdy leather belt won’t be accepted as a stop gap safety measure until you can get one.) The driver’s refusal to take you along gives you a choice – miss your appoint-

CLAUDETTE SANDECKI ment or phone for a taxi with a wheelchair accessible van. In both the HandyDART and the taxi vans the wheelchair itself is anchored at four corners while the user is strapped in with a combination lap/shoulder seatbelt. But in 2012 HandyDART upgraded its policy making it mandatory for each wheelchair user to also be secured in their chair by a lap belt to prevent tumbling out of the wheelchair while descending a ramp or if the bus should suddenly stop. Taxi vans do not require wheelchair users to wear a lap belt. Since HandyDART passengers must wear a lap belt,

it would seem reasonable for all wheelchairs loaned by the Loan Cupboard to come equipped with their own lap belt attached, just in case. Equally sensible would be for the volunteers to have permission to inform wheelchair borrowers of the lap belt requirement so the user would never be denied and left sitting at the curb. Before the Terrace Loan Cupboard can arrange for an extra lap belt from head office in Prince George the user’s therapist must forward a signed requisition to Prince George confirming the user requires this aid. Only then will an extra lap belt be sent to Terrace, via Northern Health Connection’s bus. Once arrived in Terrace, the lap belt must be installed by a qualified technician or physiotherapist ... even though installation involves nothing more than replacing two SEM screws using a Phillips screwdriver. A Phillips screwdriver is a tool handy in most households. SEM screws have an attached washer for a wider grip on soft materials that might tear under stress.

I dealt with SEM screws whenever I replaced worn or torn fabrics on wheelchair seats or backs. According to Medicare Technology Limited, a wholesaler distributor of scooters, wheelchairs and walking aids, “In the U.K. a qualified professional isn’t required to install the lap belt. Anybody could do it, however most users will have it installed by their dealer.” Wheelchair owners or borrowers can buy a sanctioned lap belt at Shoppers on Park Avenue for $24.99, or at Medichair, $49 installed. For some inexplicable reason, Red Cross Loan Cupboards are not allowed to advertise or fund raise, despite their need for more equipment and the Red Cross’ willingness to solicit funds with gusto at the drop of a tornado in another country. Loan Cupboards do, however, welcome donations of canes and bathtub stools (made from sterilizable materials such as metal or plastic, not wood; crutches; commodes; and other medical aids.

The Mail Bag More kudos for mural Dear Sir: I would like to comment on the newest painting of the mystic scene with the elephant on the old bridge.

THIS MURAL can be found under the south section of the old Skeena bridge.

He’s not feeling great about earth’s future Dear Sir: June was not a good month for Enbridge, what with this band of lawyers defending their proposal and two major spills in Alberta. Of course these spills were not Enbridge’s fault they are pointing out that it rained a lot. If some rain can do big damage in a place that is mostly flat farmland think what it can do here, at all our creeks, rivers and lakes, British Columbia also get the odd shower, along with

L

slides and avalanches. My wife tells me that I should look at the brighter side of issues, so here goes. The good news is that according to Enbridge the possibility of major spills is one every 200 years, so we are good for 400 years now, that’s great. Our neighbours the Albertans are suffering right now and my heart goes out to all the people who lost their homes, possessions

and memories. The real sad thing is though that a good part of what corporations like Enbridge consider an act of God is in fact climate change of which a great part is contributed by the tar sands and the fracking and burning of natural gas. Even though corporations would like us to refer to the gooey mess as environmental friendly oil sand, it reminds me not of virgin olive oil but black top. Besides,

scientists have called it tar sands for over one hundred years. It is true that natural gas burns cleaner than other fuels, however scientists are now saying that if you consider the process of producing it, counting all the methane escaping into the space, it is actually dirtier than coal. On the bright side, some entrepreneur might build a pipeline and find a market overseas for water that burns, with the hundreds of

thousands of wells planned, lots of firewater will be available. My wife is correct, I am pessimistic about our future. Mostly I am sad because there is little hope for planet earth, as capitalism is based on unending expansion, extraction and production of goods to sell and the world population reaches astronomical numbers in short order we will pass the point of no return.

How do you say monolingual in Mandarin?

anguage is mankind’s greatest tool. It stores and accumulates our knowledge, encoding thoughts as mundane as shopping lists and as sublime as Hamlet’s soliloquies. More than any other human skill, it permits communication and cooperation through education and exchange of ideas, in turn facilitating trade and economic opportunity. Two great languages now vie to dominate discourse on Earth: Mandarin Chinese and English. However, depending upon how one defines a language, human languages number somewhere between six and seven thousand. Only some of these are written. Some languages are literally dying before our eyes and ears. A few indigenous languages have fewer than a dozen fluent speakers, and these are usually elderly people with whose passing their language will tragically disappear. Languages are also constantly evolving, a fact which explains why Shakespeare’s English (also that of the King James Bible) is so foreign to contemporary speakers. Canadians honour two official

languages; however, we speak (and sometimes write) several hundred. Before European settlement indigenous peoples in what is now Canada included eleven language groups featuring about 65 distinct languages and dialects. With European immigration, and later additions from other areas of the globe, there are dozens more. Our official languages are hammered into us through government, education, business and entertainment. Other foreign languages flourish in minority communities, exotic to those of us who don’t know them. They seem romantic perspectives, mystery codes whose messages are available only to the initiated. In western Canada, we smugly enjoy the benefits of a globally dominant tongue largely through historical accident, and it’s not uncommon for Canadian English speakers to resent the notion that we should speak, read or hear anything else. (The same kind of cultural xenophobia grips large swathes of Canada’s Frenchspeaking population, particularly in Quebec, where laws have been used to protect the French tongue.)

GUEST COMMENT

AL LEHMANN

“Owning” a globally dominant language gives one a competitive advantage. We can understand more people and enjoy broader social perspectives than someone who speaks only a minority language. However, it is easy to mistake basic linguistic competence for intelligence, a foolish error that is nonetheless egotistically appealing. Linguistic understanding promotes trust, but cultural competition through language can lead to paranoia and often violence. The nationalism that spurred the two world wars was powerfully rein-

forced through linguistic pride. North American laziness with regard to foreign language learning is practically legendary. Canadians’ tragicomic willingness to brag about their incompetence in high school French and our penny-pinching education funding when it comes to foreign languages is short-sighted and foolish. Harper’s Index once noted that nearly 60 per cent of American students think it “important” to learn a foreign language, but that only 7 per cent of them actually do. In Europe foreign language learning has pride of place among other academic disciplines. The European Union features tens of millions of citizens who speak three or more languages. As economic opportunities arise in other member nations, people move to take advantage of them, and they assiduously learn the languages needed. Citizens there, who work in all kinds of jobs—waiters, bus drivers, tour guides, hotel employees, bankers—routinely shift from language to language as needed. They may not be equally fluent in all of them, but most people exhibit general competence with

several languages. It’s not uncommon for speakers in conversation to shift between two or three languages within the space of a sentence, as needed to get the meaning across. In our recent trip to Europe, the twenty-something clerk at our Frankfurt hotel spoke four languages: English, French, German and Hebrew. He disdainfully criticized the German education system for beginning foreign language instruction only in Grade 5; in Israel, he informed us, they begin in Grade 3. Those of us who visit from North America seem comparative rubes, mildly retarded, flashing our Rick Steves grins as if competence in English grants us some kind of royalty. With its tolerance and variety in cultures and languages, contemporary Europe has become a model of what is culturally possible. Globalism should mean more than wearing sweatshop clothing and selling junk food in China. We need to adopt the European attitude of broadening our linguistic competence. Mandarin might be a good start. Former English teacher Al Lehmann lives in Terrace, BC.

Earth’s worth it

To quote my dear departed friend Yukon Smith, “Man is the only animal which [fouls] in its own nest.” The industrial powers meet occasionally and set targets for pollution reduction, targets that no one achieves, while our Mister Harper either does not participate or refuse to sign off. Meanwhile underdeveloped countries are trying to catch up to our ways of racing to destruction. Since the US and all Canada’s major political parties, including NDP, embraces capitalism, and as long as this system is in place we are doomed.

The Kitimat Modernization Project and the Environment All aluminium smelting creates SO2 emissions – sulphur dioxide is directly related to the amount of aluminium produced. Fact #1: KMP’s SO2 emissions will increase as a direct result of the increase to aluminium production Fact #2: SO2 is not feasibly recyclable in the aluminium business – it is a waste product Fact #3: There are three methods of SO2 disposal Air Dispersion SO2 Disposal Options

Treatment with scrubber & landfill disposal Treatment with scrubber & sea water disposal

Fact #4: Landfill disposal of scrubbed SO2 is not done in any other aluminium smelter facility Fact #5: Sea water disposal is tested and possible. In Kitimat this would mean withdrawing approximately 25,000 m3/hour of sea water and reintroducing it with scrubbed SO2 into the Douglas Channel Conclusion: Based on the results of the scientific studies, Rio Tinto Alcan decided that air dispersion is the preferred manner to dispose of the new smelter’s SO2

Our Commitment The health and safety of Kitimat smelter operations employees, their families and the wider community is a priority for Rio Tinto Alcan. This is why Rio Tinto Alcan has committed to working in close cooperation with the BC Ministry of Environment to ensure regular ongoing monitoring, and if necessary, to take action to mitigate any impacts of increased SO2 on human health and the environment.

Harry Moore conducts the Mass Nass band along Eby St. during the Riverboat Days parade last year. The band won first place in the band category.

Mass Nass band keeps on playing

YOU’VE SEEN them in the Riverboat Days parade, at weddings or funerals or playing in other communities but you may not know that the Gitwinksihlkw Brass Band is enjoying its second reincarnation. The band has been together for about seven or eight years but had been around long before in the 1970s and 1980s, said principle trumpet player Antho-

ny Moore. “Those same members are the ones who wanted to restart the band,” he said about the musicians who first formed and played in the band way back then. The band took a long hiatus when work and other parts of life kept members from playing, he added. “Now they’re mostly retired, so they had time so they decided to re-

start it,” said Moore. Currently the band stands at about 38 members but when it joins with other Nass Valley bands for the Mass Nass band, the numbers can be as high as 85 or 90, he added. As well at Gitwinksihlkw musicians, the mass band is made up of musicians from Kincolith, Greenville and Aiyansh. In past, Gitwinksihlkw played primarily

by itself but now the focus is on the bands playing together. “Most picked their own instruments and have stuck with it over the years,” he said about how the bands came to be the instruments that they have. Gitwinksihlkw is primarily brass instruments, Aiyansh is mostly brass and woodwinds with a lot of clarinets and saxophones and Kincolith and Green-

ville are almost all brass, although a couple of clarinets are in there too, he said. Moore got his first instrument at age seven, a coronet, which is a smaller version of the trumpet. Even though they play together as a mass band, spectators can tell which band is which, not just by the banners carried in the parade, but by their uniform colours.

Gitwinksihlkw uniforms are black, Kincolith are blue and gold, Greenville doesn’t have uniforms now but used to have green ones and Aiyansh has always been red, said Moore. Last year, the mass band came first in the band category in the Riverboat Days parade and at Seafest in Prince Rupert. The mass band will play one or two of its usual musical pieces

and will add a couple more pieces for this year’s parade here. The band will keep going as long as it can, he said. “We try to expand as much as we can,” he said, adding most of the members are in their late 40s or 50s, some in their 60s and about a dozen in their 30s. “And then the new crop coming in just out of high school,” said Moore.

Skeena Valley Fall Fair returning THE SKEENA Valley Fall Fair returns again with all the fun from last year and a few new events are hoped to be there too. New volunteer Ted Ramsey was quite impressed with the return of the fair last year and when asked if he would get involved, said absolutely he’d volunteer. “There’s quite a collection of cool people who decided to keep the fall fair going,” he said. Ramsey enjoyed the fair in the 30-plus years it ran before it took a five year break, adding it takes a community to organize and enjoy it. This year’s theme is Celebrate Local to honour the resurgence in local, backyard and sustainable food growing going on here and increasing in recent years. New this year, the Thornhill Jr. Secondary gym and Thornhill Community

Hall will be used as indoor exhibit and vendor areas. Entry categories have been expanded for adults and children and more demonstrations, events and entertainment are planned. “I’ve always wanted to see the RC (remote control) hobby plane guys,” he said, adding that there’s quite a lot of permissions involved for remote control planes to have a demonstration or to just be on hand at the fair. A hayride is planned, the Totem Saddle Club will hold its fall fair show, 4-H shows are set to go, the cow patty drop, which was a big hit last year may turn into a goat patty drop and the ping pong ball drop returns. Vintage cars will be on hand to see and hopefully vintage tractor owners will bring theirs too, he added.

In addition, the Fall Fair is a showcase for talents such as arts, crafts, woodworking, collage, quilting, pottery, needle arts, canning, drying, baking, and much more. The 4-H group has also become more involved by offering open classes in poultry, waterfowl and rabbits. Volunteers are still needed and if they could help out for four hours in a day that’d be great, said Ramsey, adding they get free breakfast and recognition for all their help. The fall fair brochure with all the categories will be available at the library and the garden centres after Riverboat Days. The Skeena Valley Fall Fair takes place Sept. 8 and 9 at the Thornhill Community Grounds. This article was originally published July 24 but only a portion of it appeared on page A15.

I

read voraciously all year long and every season has special elements that make me think, at the time, Ah, this is really it: the absolute best time of the year to read. And summer is no different. I adore sprawling out on a blanket (half shade/ half not) on the hot sand at Lakelse, icetea close at hand, book cracked. I revel in late night reading where the light is fading, fading, fading but still not gone. My senses are thrilled by how the stormy, windy, rainy weirdness of hot summer nights where the uneasy weather adds to the story . . . Yes, beach reads. Soggy summer savers. Sunburn salve. Bug bite balm. Sunkissed escapes and escapades. Warm weather wonders. There’s a bunch of corny ways I refer to the books I read in the summer, and I thought it was a global thing, that everyone loved a summer read—but apparently, no. I was shocked (and horrified!) to learn that July and August are the poorest months of the year in terms of book sales, print and electronic. But whether you buy, borrow, or use summer, as I do, to catch up on my everpresent and overflowing to-be-read stack, here are a few books I highly recommend. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline: totally awesome story, man! (Archaic ’80s praise used intentionally because while most anyone over 13 or so will enjoy this story, people who were teens or 20-somethings in the ’80s will have special moments of extreme-geek pleasure.) USA Today called it “Enchanting . . . Willy Wonka meets The Matrix,” and while I usually don’t like those types of descriptions, in this case the comment nailed it. Ready Player One is pure zany fun and adventure. I hit page 10 and realized a huge smile had permanently taken over my face—a testimony to how wildly

Beach reads entertaining the story is, considering it’s a dystopia novel based on earth in 2044 and the author’s vision of our future world is an obvious trajectory of our society’s current issues and problems. In The Measure of a Man: The Story of a Father, a Son, and a Suit by JJ Lee, the basic premise is, “Chinese man with an abusive father inherits a dated navy suit of his father’s after his dad dies, and sets about tailoring it to something he can wear—serving as a metaphor for how he searches to reconcile himself to his past,” but the book is really about so much more. Anyone who has ever had a parent (so I guess that’s all of us) will find something to identify with in Lee’s quest to come to terms with hard aspects of his childhood and to understand and make peace with his father. It also, because of the people who make up the story, sheds light on at least some Chinese people’s immigration

There is a lot of pain in Lee’s personal experience, but he’s a wise, inspiring The Kitselas Treaty Office soul—and very witty and dry. And he has will be holding a a lot of compassion.

WITH WORKERS and families flooding into the resource booming north, Mayor David Pernarowski has called for the establishment of a transportation infrastructure task force to come up with a strategy for dealing with everything from transportation safety to problem intersections in Terrace. “All three components of the recommendation address issues such as improved traffic flow with a second grade

Dave Pernarowski separation, better access at the Keith/Sande intersec-

tion, and safer access over the train tracks for pedestrians,” Pernarowski said of the memo submitted to city staff at the July 22 regular council meeting. In terms of the overpass, Pernarowski wants the task force to, “prepare an engineered design for this grade separation that can then be presented to the various levels of government and to CN as a shelf ready project.” He also wants to see a solid plan developed for a possible pedestrian walkway at Kalum over the tracks as

well as for improving the intersection at Keith and Sande that is currently regulated by a confusing combination of traffic light and stop signs. As for safety, the mayor said in an email that, “there is no question that the rail disaster in Lac-Mégantic has us all thinking about railway safety ... our Fire Department does train with CN on how to respond to a rail incident in the community involving dangerous goods ...

Cougar sightings not unusual By ANNA KILLEN

Reports of a cougar prowling in the bench area of Terrace have some residents worried, and conservation officials are reminding them that while there is typically a low density of cougars in the area, it's always important to be aware. “They're around, just in small numbers,” said North Coast zone conservation officer Gareth Scrivner, noting the office has received three sightings this year, all in July. That is on par with how many sightings there have been in previous years, and none of the three sightings involved problem behaviour. “It's probably only one cougar that's been seen,” he said, noting the information they've collected this year is consistent with the same adult cougar that's been sighted over the last few years. “Generally when people have seen it it's been on a property that backs onto thick bush, usually on the back of a mountainside, and it's just been kind of running that edge of the properties on the edge of town,” he said. The cougar has typically been sighted on the Kitsumkalum side of the river, but it's not abnormal for the animal to pass through the bench as that area is part of it's large territory that spans Kitsumkalum, north Terrace, Kitselas, the Copper River area, across the Skeena and the Kalum rivers. “I've seen cougar tracks down by Sockeye Creek, which is near Williams Creek near Lakelse Lake,” he said, adding there are odd sightings in Jack Pine. “It's good to be cautious,” he said. “The problem is that they can cover

big distances, so there's nothing saying that animal is still there. I think it's going back at least a week since the last sighting we have.” While there is a public safety issue with cougars attacking children, that's less of a concern here than in places where there is a high-density of cougars like on Vancouver Island and the Kootenays. There, in milder climates cougars prefer, a large deer population supports a large cougar population, and when one- and twoyear-old juveniles go out to find their own territory, they sometimes enter urban areas. Here, where there are less cougars covering large territories, the main concern is for people's pets. “A cougar would pick off small mammals, so small dogs and cats do fit into that prey profile,” he said. “It wouldn't be unusual for us to see a cougar working the back side of an urban area like that where people may have cats that just disappear into the bush occasionally.” But if there have been known cougar sightings in the area, it's important to play it safe. If you come across a cougar on a trail or in the bush, the first thing to remember is don't turn your back. “Don't turn your back on a cougar, face the animal, make yourself appear big. Talk, shout, and just back away slowly while facing the cougar.” Adults can teach kids that the one thing they don't want to do is turn their backs to run and make a highpitched squealing noise. If they're in a group, they should come together and back away slowly. Report sightings by calling the conservation office's 24-hour number at 1-877-952-7277.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE Application for a Permit under the Provisions of the Environmental Management Act Coast Mountain Hydro LP, 2500 – 1066 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6E 3X2, intend to submit an application to the Director to authorize the discharge of excess sludge effluent from a secondary sewage treatment works at the 300 person Forest Kerr construction camp. The source of discharge is from two secondary sewage treatment plants. Excess secondary treatment sludge will be trucked to the proposed sludge drying bed. The land upon which the facility will be situated and the discharge will occur is on unsurveyed crown land. The proposed location is 5 km west of the AltaGas construction camp, in the vicinity of DL 7371 Cassiar District west of km 6 on the Lad 1 Forest Service Road, off km 32 of the Eskay Forest Service Road, east of the Bob Quinn Airstrip on Highway 37 North, within the Iskut River watershed. The maximum rate of effluent discharged from the facility will be 175 m3/year. The operating period for this facility will be approximately one discharge of 10m3 every 3 weeks. The characteristics of the waste discharged are as follows: Waste biological sludge from a secondary sewage treatment plant, typically 1.2 per cent solids.

Riverboat Days 2013

Take a historical walk around Terrace By AMARA JANSSENS TWO HISTORIC walking tours showcasing Terrace’s exciting past are being offered at this year’s Riverboat Days. Both Heritage Park Museum and the George Little House will be celebrating Terrace’s history on Tuesday, August 6. The first tour of the day is, “My Town: A Walk with the Founder of Terrace,” offered by the George Little House at 1 p.m. Led by Yvonne Moen and Debbie Letawski, guests on this tour will be taken on an interpretive walk through downtown Terrace from the perspective of Terrace founder George Little. “It’s to keep the history of George Little alive,” Letawski said. Guests will also receive a copy of the booklet, “My Town: A Walk with the Founder of Terrace,” written by historian Cindy Hansen. Letawski said it will lead tour guests through an exciting history, beginning with the history of pre-emption, to the first saw mill, to the railroad coming through, all spearheaded by George Little. Tour guests will meet at the George Little House, before heading out to the police station, then to the lookout at the Old Skeena Bridge, and will end coming back towards the George Little House to discuss passenger train traffic. Letawski said tour guests should be prepared to walk for a couple of hours that af-

ternoon. She also said this year’s walk is extra special as it is gearing up for the next year’s celebration of 100 years of the George Little House. “The goal is to make people aware of 100 years,” Letawski explained. Things turning 100-years-old include the railway coming through Terrace, and the Kitsumkalum School, which will all be discussed on the tour. To reserve your spot, call George Little House at 250-638-8887. Tickets are $10. The second tour of the day is offered through Heritage Park Museum, and it is the second annual historical downtown walking tour. This tour will take place at 7 p.m. and will take approximately an hour and half. Tour guests will be guided throughout the downtown core of Terrace, to various historically significant buildings, Veronika Kurz, community programmer of Heritage Park Museum said. Kurz said a highlight of the tour will include a stop at the Old Meat Shoppe on Lakelse. This building used to be a Royal Bank, with a scandalous past of a bank robbery. The tour will begin at Brolley Square (the corner of Emerson and Lakelse) and will finish at the old Dog ‘n’ Suds on Lakelse Avenue. To register, call the Heritage Park Museum at 250-635-4546. Tickets are also $10.

Riverboat Days 2013

Tour the Old Pioneer Cemetery By AMARA JANSSENS Heritage Park Museum is adding a new historical tour to the River Boat Days festival this year. For the first time, a guided historical tour of the Kitsumgallum Pioneer Cemetery (located off of the Nisga’a Highway) will be offered by the museum. The tours will take place during the afternoon of Sunday, August 11, and during the evening of Tuesday, August 27. Each tour will take approximately 45 minutes to one hour to complete. “This will be the first guided tour offered of the Pioneer Cemetery,” Veronika Kurz, community programmer with Heritage Park Museum said. Tour participants can expect to learn the stories behind well known graves, such as Terrace founder George Little. The Mills family who was instrumental in the construction of Terrace’s first hospital is also buried in the cemetery, as well as the Franks, a prominent farming family. Kurz will also lead tour guests to one of the cemetery’s larger monuments, which is the site of the Serbian workers who passed away during the fatal Grand Trunk Pacific Tunnel accident on 1911. Additionally, Kurz said many

of the people who owned buildings at the Heritage Park Museum are burried in the cemetery, such as the owners of the Kalum Lake Hotel and the dance hall. But the tour will also include a history of some of the lesser known graves. “There’s a lot of people there [at the Pioneer Cemetery] we don’t have information on,” Kurz said. There are also stories around unmarked children and baby graves which were discovered while the edge of the cliff gave way. “The graveyard started shifting down towards the river,” Kelsey Wiebe curator of Heritage Park Museum said in describing how the unclearly marked graves were discovered. Terrace’s connections to the First and Second World Wars will also be shared. One such story is of Marino Scirelli, an ItalianCanadian soldier who fought for both Canada and Italy during the First World War. Kurz said he fought with the Italians for two years prior to joining the Canadians. Anyone wanting to attend should register ahead of time by calling the museum at 250-6354546. Tickets are $10, and water will be provided.

President’s message: Welcome to Riverboat Days 2013. Riverboat Days begins on Aug. 2 and the Terrace Riverboat Days society is pleased to bring you another fun-filled 10 days of fun for everyone. Riverboat Days would not be possible without local businesses, volunteers, service clubs, City of Terrace, and Regional District of Kitimat Stikine. I would like to thank everyone for helping the committee put together another great Riverboat Days week. And thanks to my committee who go above and beyond for a group of volunteers – if you see a “green shirt” out there please let them know how much they are appreciated. Some new things to check out this year: Lazer Tag – sounds like a lot of fun for the entire family and will be going on in George Little Park (beside the library) on Saturday, Aug. 3. Terrace City Council is holding a pancake breakfast on Sunday, Aug. 4 at the park before the church service. Come out and have our Mayor and City Council members serve you breakfast. A great breakfast for a donation to the Terrace Food Bank. On Aug. 9 bring your chair out to Heritage Park and enjoy an outdoor concert with Gary Fjellgaard.

Welcome to locals and visitors to our area – we wish you the best Riverboat Days ever and look forward to meeting you out and about enjoying the different events. Be safe and enjoy.

Riverboat Days 2013

Sporting events knock it out of the park By ANNA KILLEN RIVERBOAT DAYS has something for everyone – concerts, parades, the chance to get thrown in fake jail. But it also has something for every level of athlete – serious slo-pitchers, neon-clad volleyballers, calm and collected horseshoe enthusiasts. And of course, spectating is always welcomed and encouraged. In case you’re not sure where to start, here’s a quick guide to the sporting events shaping up for this year’s Riverboat Days. For the mature men, there’s the 35 and over “B” Division Men’s Soccer tournament, starting 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2 and going to Aug. 5 at the Thornhill Jr. Secondary School field. This year’s theme is “The Older I Get, The Better I Was”. For 30 years the Mixed Slo-Pitch tournament has been a Riverboat Days mainstay. This year’s tourney goes from Friday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. to Aug. 5 at various parks across town. Car aficionados have a couple of options – Stock car racing at the Terrace Speedway Aug. 3 and Hot August Nites Drag Racing at the airport Aug. 4 and 5. Rugby 7s – a faster game of rugby – will be going off at the Northwest Community College field Aug. 3. And in one of the newer events, the Northcoast Nightmares roller derby team are hosting a roller dome at the arena Aug. 3, complete with old-school quad skates and a killer soundtrack.

“This will be a really fun event for families, as a lot of adults skated as kids and they can bring their kids to try it out. We’ll all be there to help out beginner skaters, and of course talk derby,” said Nightmare Tarea Roberge. Beach volleyball on the suddenly sandy Mr. Mikes’ parking lot is known to attract a crowd – catch this on Aug. 4 and 5, with fun going well into the night. Another new event is the Horseshoes Doubles Tournament, at the horseshoe pits on the bench Aug. 4. There will be prizes and cash, and the format means competitors play with a different team member each time. The Horseshoe Club has been actively trying to increase its membership since the horseshoe pits were renovated earlier this year. And even if you can’t skate, you can watch skateboarders at the 14th annual Ruins Skateboard Comp at the Terrace skatepark Aug. 4. Mid-week take a jaunt to Water Lily Bay to see the dragon boaters “Get Dragon Boating” Aug. 7. The final weekend sees a hands-on open house at the Rod & Gun Club in partnership with the Whiskey Jack Archers. And the Terrace Peaks Gymnastics Club asks “Are you up to the Challenge?” at the second annual Community Fitness Challenge and Display Aug. 10. For a full list of events, times, and locations, see the Riverboat Days guide in this issue of The Terrace Standard.

Gerald Campbell Hale

Roger Bazil

March 29, 1930 - Dec. 3, 2011

August 13, 1946 - July 23, 2012

Our memories of these two men are infinite and will never fade. Both men who are brother-in-laws left us within months of each other and both succumbed to cancer. While on this earth they shared their love of hunting, fishing, and the quiet solitude of our great outdoors. They would talk for hours about their many hunting and fishing trips. However, their careers were very different Gerry was a sales representative in the steel industry. Many referred to him as Mr. Culvert. His job took him to many communities through out Northern BC and he made numerous friends as he went. Gerry is survived by his wife, Charlotte her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Also, Gerry’s own children, grandchildren and his one sister who lives in the lower mainland. Roger was a carpenter by trade. He loved to create things with his hands. He loved to put on his tool belt he said, he felt energized once he put the belt on and he would work for hours in his shop out at Jackpine Flats. I’m certain he often kept the neighbours awake at night with his hammering and sawing as he worked at a project he just could not put down. Roger is survived by his wife Sonja, his children, and grandchildren. Also, Roger is survived by his 93-year-old mother who still resides at Jackpine Flats. Roger has numerous siblings, in-laws and many friends throughout British Columbia. We miss both men every day and until we meet again rest in peaceful sleep. Loving memories of Lucy Rose Verigin and Charlotte and all the families too numerous to mention.

Friends of Dave and Lois are invited to attend. A program will begin at 2 pm EASE D T R G G FTSǤ

Bowlers strike gold at Nationals By ANNA KILLEN Three Terrace five-pin bowlers have returned from the Master Bowlers’ Association Nationals in Calgary with a handful of medals to show for their efforts. Jo-Anne Borgford, the Master Bowler zone director for the northwest zone, her husband Dave, and first-time national competitor Al Annett made the trek to Calgary June 29 to July 3 – the first national event to be held in the city after the flooding – for the tournament, representing Team BC. The provincial team is made up of five smaller teams – two tournament teams, both a mens and a ladies; a seniors team; and two teaching teams, which the Terrace players played on, both mens and ladies. The teaching division is for players who are also coaches at their local bowling alley and is sometimes referred to as POA – Pins Over Average – meaning bowlers don’t bowl scratch, or straight scores, they bowl pins over their average. “So if I bowl 10 pins over my average, and the next person bowls only five pins over their average, I win,” explained Jo-Anne. And win she did – she took silver as part of the Ladies Teaching Team, and gold as the Singles Rep. “That’s a big one for me,” she said. “I’ve won gold in the team events before, but never in the singles.” Dave and Annett were both integral to the Men’s Teaching Team, which took silver, and Dave also competed as the Singles Rep, win-

ning bronze. “Our teams overall for BC did really good. I think out of 10 events we took six medals,” she said. Although Annett has been to a few provincial tournaments, this was his first nationals – Dave has been to four nationals, in both the teaching and the tournament divisions and Jo-Anne has been to the nationals nine times both coaching

and bowling. She says she loves seeing “rookies” experience the tournament for the first time. “It’s so amazing for them to be at this national event for the first time,” she said, noting that on Alberta night the rookies were subjected to a ‘branding’ (with stamps, not fire) at a bull riding event. Another highlight is catching up with the friends they have made

over the years at provincials and nationals. Both Jo-Anne and Dave have been bowling for over 40 years. “We both started very young. I’ve got 40, he’s probably got about 44. We both started in as children. I started at the age of three and he started when he was about six – so yeah, lots of years!” she said. They started so young because

bowling runs in the family. “When my parents first arrived to Canada in the late ‘60s, which was just before I was born, they had moved to what is now Maple Ridge. And my mom went and joined bowling to try to meet new people, and that’s how we all kind of got into it. She kind of went off and started bowling on a weekly basis, and really enjoyed it. And when they moved to Kitimat she continued and my dad started bowling at that point. And all of us kids started bowling,” she said. And then when she was six, her family bought the Terrace Bowling Alley, which her dad still owns, so the whole family had ample space to practise and hone their skills. Dave’s family also owned a bowling alley in the Lower Mainland throughout his teens, so he was well into the scene when he and Jo-Anne met 22 years ago at a Master Bowlers event. “I was the organizer for the division he was bowling in at the time, which was the tournament division and that’s how I met him,” she said. “Bowling has definitely been a common thing. We are quite involved in coaching, quite involved in bowling ourselves – he’s a better bowler, by a long shot.” And the plan is to continue to stay involved in bowling, coaching at the Terrace lanes, organizing tournaments, and helping to nurture the upcoming bowlers here in Terrace. In fact, of the six bowlers who went for the last provincials, five made the cut. “That’s great odds,” she said.

U-14 boys make Provincial softball playoffs By NOLAN KELLY Boys softball players from Smithers and Terrace made the trip to Richmond, B.C. July 19 to 21 to compete in the U-14 Provincial Softball Championships and they didn't disappoint. The District 13 Smokescreen went 2-2 in the round robin portion of the event, losing to Richmond in their opening game, before winning two straight over Fairview and Clearwater and dropping their final game to Sooke. But the .500 record was good enough to send them into double elimination playoffs. Unfortunately, they drew difficult matchups in both their playoff games. Up first, a rematch against the Richmond team they had lost to in the opening game of the weekend.

Richmond proved too much for the Smokescreen U14s and the loss forced them into a final elimination playoff game against Sooke, the other team they had already lost to in the tournament. It was tight early on. Both teams exchanged two run innings in the opening stages, before Sooke rallied to put a five-spot on the Smokescreen in the fourth. The hometown boys climbed back with two of their own, but Sooke held on for the victory. Considering the relative population of the teams the Smokescreen were playing, and the cold northern spring making for shortened seasons, the boys exceeded expectations. "It went really well," said head coach Scott Groves. "We don't get a lot of practice and playing time com-

pared to some of these other kids, usually we're just starting and their seasons are almost over." The team was comprised of eight boys from Smithers and four boys from Terrace, who were selected from this year's summer softball league. "We had a few kids that had been to tournaments before, so, I sent an email out to everyone who played in the league and asked them if they would be interested." Standouts from the team included Dylan King, who was the jack of all trades for the U-14's, back catching, playing short-stop, hitting, and pitching, and Logan Groves and Brett McGregor, who delivered solid pitching performances. The provincial tournament marked the official end of the softball season for the region.

Stingers shine on provincial teams By ANNA KILLEN Two northwest female volleyball players have just returned from training and competing for Team BC – a month long selection process that proved northwest players have the chops to compete with the best in the country. “This is huge,” said Terrace Stingers’ 16U coach Carmen Didier, who coaches both players. “Northwest volleyball is coming on strong.” Terrace’s Cassidy Kitchen was one of just 14 athletes to make the 17U team, which ultimately took second against teams from across Canada at the National Team Challenge Cup in Winnipeg, Manitoba July 16-21. “It was really fun,” said Kitchen. “I learned so, so much.” The

Cassidy Kitchen team trained in Kamloops for an intense six hours a day in the weeks leading up to the tournament, and Kitchen says she’s returning to the Stingers with a lot to pass on to her fellow players. And Smithers’ Morgan Monkman was one of 24 players to make

the 16U Western Elites, who competed in a championship tournament in Saskatchewan July 19-21 against teams from western Canada. The 24 BC players were split into two equal teams and ended up playing each other in the quarter finals. “It was super intense,” she said of that game. “Went to the full five sets and the other team ended up winning.” That team went onto win first place, and Monkman’s team placed the highest that they could after losing in the quarter finals, which was fifth, and the only two teams they lost to were the two teams that ended up in the finals. “The actual competition was super neat and a really cool experience to get to play against players from all across Western Canada, and just to experience

a high level of play,” she said. “But the part I especially enjoyed was training with the team in Kamloops, that was super fun.” The team trained four hours a day, and spent the rest of the time together doing goal setting and team building exercises and learning ways to grow as an athlete. She says the experience only solidified her drive to play volleyball at a higher level when she graduates from high school. “I’ve always loved volleyball, and I’ve always had it in my mind that it would be cool to play postsecondary or take it somewhere bigger but after this experience now my passion for it is definitely stronger,” said Monkman, who is going into Grade 11. “During the tryout part in Kamloops we had college recruitment sessions,

so the coaches and ex-BC team players would talk to us about the process of college recruitment and what sort of things you should be trying to do. So I have a good picture in my mind.” The experience will open doors for both girls, with the exposure gained by playing at this level – something not always easy when you’re from the more remote areas of B.C. “When I said I was from Smithers no one knew where that was!” she said of her teammates. “It was funny. Me and Cassidy were definitely representing the north well.” And for anyone who wants to see them in action, Kitchen and Monkman, along with Stingers’ captain Preet Bath are competing in the Mr. Mikes Riverboat Days volleyball tournament this weekend.

■■ Watch and learn Here’s Abstract Volleyball camp’s Jesse Knight setting up a drill at the Thornhill Jr. gym earlier this month. The clinic provides young athletes with an opportunity to experience training at a university or national team level – and includes a seminar on how to navigate a post-secondary path. Playing in university “is more than just athletism,” said Knight, noting a heavy class load on top of training 20-24 hours a week. There’s also a focus on building strength and learning how to work out properly – something many of these young athletes learned about for the first time. “You don’t want to just jump,” he said, noting what training focussed on in the past. “You want to build strength.”

n Alaska and the US states that verge on the mighty Pacific, fishing for that ocean’s largest salmon is the sportfishing of kings. We Canucks know the creatures as chinooks for etymological reasons whose roots I tapped into last week. Regionally, we call them springs for the time of year when the first of them return to the Skeena, the Nass and a host of smaller rivers that irrigate the coast line. Scientists, with that fondness categorization their professional methodology demands, file the mighty fish under Oncorhynchus appending the breathy tshawytscha , just to be precise. King Salmon, Tyee Salmon, Columbia River Salmon, Black salmon, Chub Salmon, Hook Bill Salmon, Winter Salmon and Black Mouth Salmon, no matter what you call them, Chinook Salmon are magnificent brutes.  From their log books and diaries the men in wooden ships who first found their way to this coast were astounded both by the size of the salmon and their abundance. Used to populous, sparsely-treed landscapes where river fishing for salmon was tightly regulated, skippers like Captain Vancouver were stunned by the fecundity of the seemingly boundless riches of the coastal fisheries.  It wasn’t long after settlement that the lustre began to wear off the promise of the

new salmon fishery, for to move the feat from these New World salmfluke to achievement. on proved to be comForemost among pletely unimpressed these men was Bill with the flies and Old Schaadt.

range, the largest tipping the scales at 56 pounds. Except for special holidays, which he set aside to visit his mother, Schaadt devoted all his spare time and some of the time he couldn’t spare, to fishing. Since his career extended over 50 years, that’s a lot of fishing.   Schaadt didn’t write about his fishing or brag about his prowess. He was a solitary bachelor who compared notes with his few fishing companions. His accomplishments were so remarkable they simply couldn’t be contained. Passed on in reverential tones by word of mouth, they finally surfaced like breaching salmon in the works of Russell Chatham and, later, Trey Combs. To dispel any doubt of Bill Schaadt’s prowess, Chatham’s work Angler’s Coast is replete with black and white photos of him hoisting giant salmon in the air, usually with a few more strewn about at his feet.  Because fish stocks were thought to be limitless in those days, men strove to kill their limits. When men fished as well as Bill Schaadt, they limited often. He achieved this prodigious success in an age when you had to go to Arkansas if you wanted to shop at a Wal-Mart, an era  fishermen wore wool in the winter and waded rivers in heavy rubber boots with treads like truck tires on their soles. By today’s standards, fish tech was low tech. How did he do it? Find out next week.

New ‘no littering’ signs at Ferry Island By JOSH MASSEY New “no littering” signage is being put up at the Ferry Island parking lot in response to a complaint submitted to the city, but there is indecision over who should enforce littering laws along the shoreline. “This is the first official complaint we have received on this matter, but we do recognize it is a problem at this site as well as many other sites along the river,” director of leisure services Carmen Didier said in an email. “The city does not have the jurisdiction, nor do we have the resources to be doing litter collection on the shorelines of Ferry Island.” Didier went on to say that it is the responsibility of anglers to pack out what they pack in, and that the new signs will make that clear. The initial draft of the two signs read “Be a Steward of the Skeena/Dispose your litter in the garbage cans provided” and “It’s your shoreline/ Keep it clean.” At the regular council meeting July 22 there was discussion over who could enforce the rule, and if threat of fines should be included on the signs. An official from the department of Fisheries and Oceans said afterwards that it is not one of the DFO's current functions to enforce littering laws on shorelines. B.C. Conservation officers have that power, however there are only a few of them working in the area. Mayor David Pernarowski brought up the littering issue during the new business section of the meeting, and initiated a discussion about solutions. “There needs to be some education or some signs and maybe more garbage cans,” he said. There are already Hid-A-Bins located at the end of the Ferry Island parking lot, and councillor Bruce Bidgood said that putting new bins closer to the water didn't make logistical sense. “The whole notion of putting a garbage can proximate to the shoreline is not a good idea because of the changing

water level,” he said. He also said that any rotting fish offal left in the garbage can could become a smell issue. “Essentially a sign that says 'you will be

fined' for leaving garbage down there would be the most appropriate strategy,” Bidgood said. “It should say 'pack out what you pack in', Christiansen said of the

signs, and suggested educational postings on the bulletin board about how to dispose of fishing-related garbage. Councillor Marylin Davies had another sort

of suggestion. “Why don't we talk to the tourism group to see if they can come up with an idea,” she said. Davies believes this could turn into a more

imaginative campaign involving perhaps the creation of a symbol used to promote shoreline cleanup. “The reality is that there are only a small

number of people who are making the mess and it is the good Samaritans and stewards of the shoreline who are picking up behind them,” Didier said.
