The City of Castlegar official by-election results have been released with no changes to the story as we reported on election night, Saturday, Sept. 14. Businessman Florio Vassilakakis won the election with 408 votes, beating out Kirk Duff (244), Antoinette Halberstadt (171) and Tyler Maddocks (148) for the lone council seat that was up for grabs. There was a total of 971 votes cast, representing just 16 per cent turnout of the electorate. It’s the lowest percentage of votes cast in any Castlegar election since at least 1986, according to documents released by Carolyn Rempel, chief election officer. By-elections in 2008 (18.5 per cent) and 2001 (25.1 per cent were higher but didn’t come close to the 1987 council election when more than 58 per cent of voters exercised their democratic right. “I’m just honoured that I’ve got this opportunity to represent the citizens of Castlegar,” said Vassilakakis on Saturday night. “I look forward to working with the current council, and of course, the mayor, and making good things happen.” As for the margin of victory, the proprietor of Cas-

tlegar’s downtown Element Club said he had never taken anything for granted. “You never know, with these by-elections anything can happen. So I just kept pushing and pushing. We were on the horn today, all day, making sure that everybody got out to vote. I’m glad to see that everyone who said they were going to vote, went and voted.

On the subject of his competitors, Vassilakakis indicated he’d sent them messages in advance. “I have nothing but the utmost respect for them,” he said. Kirk Duff, the only one of the four candidates with experience on Castlegar council, who had been edged out of the governing body in the last general election, expressed a realistic reaction to the result. “I’m a little surprised,” he said by phone.

“But the voters get what they want and that’s what happened.” Succinct in his post-vote reflections, Duff said, “I know I put everything I could into this campaign and I have zero regrets.” Antoinette Halberstadt was positive in the wake of a third-place finish. “I feel quite happy with my result considering how new I am to town,” she said. “Of course I would have loved to have come first, but I must say the process has been really enriching. In the process of being out there campaigning I’ve connected with and shared ideas with a lot of really excellent people.” Tyler Maddocks, making a second bid for a council seat after being unsuccessful in the general election of 2011 was also reached by phone on by-election night but deferred comment until emailing the following statement the following day. “Thank you to all my supporters, and the people who have continued to believe in me.

Terry’s namesake event draws well in Castlegar marvin beatty Castlegar News Reporter

The annual Terry Fox Run took place on Sunday, Sept. 15 and an estimated 200 plus participants ran, walked and wheeled five and 10 km routes through Castlegar starting and ending at the Community Complex. Castlegar resident Ashley Gibbenhuck ran the five km route of the Terry Fox Run pushing Riley (2) in a stroller. Though it’s not a competitive event, she seemed pleased with her 28 minute time. “I wanted to give back to the community,” said Gibbenhuck, who said she has been in Castlegar for two years. This was her first Terry Fox Run here and she said she was happy to have had nice weather. Jeff Lafortune’s team, Team Jeff, was all smiles as they approached the finish line. The all ages group surpassed their fundraising goal of $300 for the Terry Fox Foundation and said they too were enjoying the morning stroll. Audrey Polovnikoff, recreation and cultural programmer at the Castlegar Community Complex said the run generated more than $3,000 in community donations. “A huge thank you to the Selkirk Saints for helping us with registration as well as

Running an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) every day for 143 days, he eventually was forced to end his run in September of the same year when the osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) in his right leg spread to his lungs.

RDCK dodges recycling responsibility staff writer Castlegar News

On September 16, 2013 the RDCK declined the financial incentives offered by Multi Material BC (MMBC) to continue to provide recycling services in the region. Starting in May 2014, the responsibility for collecting and processing household recycling will be the responsibility of the MMBC. The RDCK stated in a release that local governments face a considerable challenge in determining how to manage the transition of recycling from a public service to a privately funded system. In a Sept. 15 letter sent to Mary Polak, Minister of Environment from John Kettle, RDCK board chair, 14 concerns were outline by the RDCK regarding the proposed changes. Kettle called the privatization scheme a “one size fits all approach” that will not work in rural areas. At the September 12 board meeting the vote was unanimous to decline the financial incentives offered by MMBC. This decision was based on a thorough analysis that included many factors including

RDCK Board Chair John Kettle Nelson Star

financial viability, and environmental and social impacts. In the end it was determined that the incentives offered to the RDCK would not recover the full costs of operating recycling programs. The RDCK would still have to provide a taxpayer subsidy to a privately operated program. This complex and challenging decision to decline ultimately places the full onus of recycling program operation onto MMBC. “Declining the incentives and relinquishing control of our recycling programs sends a clear message that the RDCK is not subsidizing recycling that should be fully paid for by the producers of the products,” said board

chair John Kettle. “This decision may change the current system as we know it but it puts the onus on the private sector and the Provincial government to continue to offer the same level of service to the taxpayer as currently provided by the RDCK.” The RDCK questioned what the system would look like in 2014 and said MMBC had yet to decide exactly how recycling services will be structured in the Kootenays. The RDCK will continue to provide recycling services (depots and curbside collection in Castlegar/Area I/Area J) until the proposed changes happen. The RDCK said it does not anticipate changes to the curbside program but future locations of recycling depots are unknown at this time. With MMBC taking responsibility for recycling of packaging and printed paper, they also said they will continue to advocate for a level of service that meets the needs of residents. For more information about B.C.’s EPR system and the new PPP program contact the Recycling Council of British Columbia: www.rcbc.bc.ca or call 1-800-667-4321.

Venus is not amused

Our editorial range doesn’t usually take us outside the delivery area of the Castlegar News but in this instance, we’re willing to make an exception. Venus De Cello, a beautiful granite sculpture by Winlaw artist Peter Vogelaar (who has also created some of the sand masterpieces hundreds have enjoyed as part of Sandsations) was damaged recently in what police are investigating as an act of vandalism. In an interview with the Nelson Star, Joy Barrett, cultural development officer and Sculpturewalk executive director, said, “We’re lucky it didn’t just smash into a million pieces when it hit the ground.” Lucky indeed. It’s hard to imagine what an artist feels when something that took many hours of patience and skill is treated so callously. It’s equally difficult to gauge the level of anger in the mind of the person(s) who may have done such a thing. Who exactly is the target of such an act? Who are you mad at and why did this sculpture have to pay the price? We’re hoping it was an accident that someone hasn’t, to this point, owned up to but that explanation seems far-fetched given the weight of the sculpture and the secure foundation it had. This piece was on display in Castlegar and enjoyed by many visitors and locals alike. It’s disheartening to see that some in Nelson may not appreciate what Sculpturewalk is trying to do for the region. The location of Venus De Cello, outside of a bank, may allow investigators to see via security footage some clue as to what happened. We hope it does and that those who may be responsible are held to account. M.B. We want to hear from you.

The Secret Ingredient Is it just me, or does it seem like every second post on Facebook is a recipe? Don’t get me wrong, I love every aspect of food, from eating it, to reading cookbooks from front to back as if they were enticing novels. But when one is fighting the epic Battle of the Bulge, it is an upward struggle, fueled by fantasies of consuming as much of whatever I want, whenever I want it, without gaining a single ounce. Yeah, dream on! I’ve always loved food; in fact, one of my earliest and fondest childhood memories involves food. The very first and fondest food memory was that of eating pancakes at my nanny’s home on Sunday mornings. Actually, it was more like mid-morning because we first had to attend church before we went back to nanny’s for pancakes. Not that it matters, but I lived in Kitimat at the time and I can clearly remember being instructed to sit quietly at her overstuffed couch, then known as a chesterfield, complete with daintily crocheted doilies laying prettily on the armrests. Do you know how hard it is for a three or four year-old child to sit quietly? Mind you, we had been advised well in advance, and in fear of our Cindy Amaral Production Manager

Sandy Leonard Production

lives, that we five children were not to speak unless we were spoken to first, and we must, no matter what, trot out all the manners we had been taught in our few short years. We knew what disobeying meant for us, and so we sat in our grandparents’ home, eerily quiet and eagerly anticipating those melt-in-your-mouth pancakes of which we dreamed about all week long. The pancake meal was like most of the prior morning, eaten in silence which was only broken by the sound of hungry children happily shoveling pancakes into their mouths at an alarming rate, and for the occasional, “Please pass the syrup.” Despite the enforced silence and the rigid rules, I still find that memory somewhat warm and comforting, except that nowadays I much prefer the more delicate crepe than a fluffy pancake. The second food memory occurred when I must have been about sevenyears-old. We had a live-in housekeeper then. Mom worked outside the home and while they couldn’t afford to hire a housekeeper, they could afford to offer a home and a bit of cash to a downtrodden woman and (usually) her child to help care for us rambunctious five.

Chuck Bennett Publisher

I think the housekeeper’s name was Grace. She and her young daughter, Brenda, came to us from the Salvation Army and I remember being in awe of the stern outfit and hat she wore everyday without fail. It was a wonderful time with Grace. She was kind, considerate and loving to all of us. For the first time ever, since we had a housekeeper and since the school was close to home, I was allowed to come home for lunch. In my young eyes, the food set before us was a feast. In reality, it was nothing more than tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. But, you see, the magic in that lunch was that it was the first time I could do what many other children could do, and that was go home for a meal to a loving adult who had carefully prepared our lunch. It makes me realize that most times it doesn’t actually matter what is on your table, whether it be mouthwatering steak or a simply prepared grilled cheese sandwich. Food is about the secret ingredient, the love that is offered each and every time someone who cares about you sets it before you. And maybe, that is what my Facebook friends are doing in a roundabout way, merely offering their love through the use of social media. Jim Sinclair Editor

Doukhobor Discovery Centre

The Doukhobor Discovery Centre is pleased to have the restored grist (flour) mill back on display. Thanks to the generous donation of material from Kalesnikoff Lumber and the volunteer efforts of the USCC Kootenay Men’s Group the fully restored mill was put back on display across from the Castlegar airport along Heritage Way, the entrance to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre. Originally built in Saskatchewan and brought to British Columbia in 1908, the artifact was once used to mill flour by the Doukhobors in B.C. but, after years of neglect, had fallen to decay – until now. Various other artifacts are also slated for restoration in the

So far, so good – bear conflicts down in the Castlegar area staff writer Castlegar News

Bear conflicts and sightings have dropped significantly in Castlegar and throughout B.C. this year but both the local and provincial WildsafeBC coordinators say that’s no reason for residents to become complacent in doing their part. “It has been a slower bear season than last year across the province, but has been even quieter in Castlegar,” said Jenny Wallace, Castlegar WildsafeBC community coordinator. “Locally,  we are still down in calls of conflicts and sightings by 75 per cent from this time last year. Also, there have

been far fewer bears destroyed this year, with no bears destroyed in Castlegar since the spring.” Wallace said the reduction in conflicts and sightings was no reason for people to pay less attention to managing attractants on their properties but described the situation as “good news.” She added that she hoped the quieter season means residents have been making efforts to manage attractants on their properties. “We’re down about 20 per cent province-wide in terms of bear-related calls to the Conservation Officer Service Reporting line,” said Frank Ritcey, provincial coordinator

of the WildSafeBC program, ”However, that could all change with the fall season. Natural for-

age has been good with a long wet spring but the dry hot summer could have reduced the avail-

ability of natural foods.” Ritcey says bears are entering a phase of their yearly cycle called “hyperphagia,” a time when they can take in up to 20,000 calories in a single day. It is during this period that they create great stores of fat to make it through their winter hibernation period. “Garbage, unpicked fruit, bird feeders, pet food, outdoor freezers, and small livestock all become targets for the bears,” warned Ritcey. “Preventing bears from accessing these attractants will help to keep the wildlife wild and our communities safe.” WildSafeBC is a program run by the BC Con-

servation Foundation and more information about the program can be found at wildsafebc.com or they can be followed on Facebook at facebook. com/wildsafebc Locally you can reach your WildSafeBC community coordinator at: castlegar@wildsafebc. com or call 250-3658971. You can also find information on local bear activity and attractant management tips on Facebook at “WildsafeBC Castlegar”. In Castlegar, WildSafeBC is sponsored by Columbia Basin Trust, City of Castlegar, RDCK, and the BC Ministry of Environment.

Pet of the Week

This week the Trail Regional SPCA is featuring a very special pooch. Her name is Tiger and she is a 5 month old German shepherd cross. Tiger is a well mannered dog that gets along with other dogs, loves to play with toys and roll around in the dirt with her shelter buddies.

Tiger

She will need a stable home to gain confidence and would benefit from obedience classes. Tiger is smart, and willing to learn, however, wasn’t taught anything in her previous home. She would probably benefit from another dog in the house to make her feel comfortable when you have to leave the house. A HUGE thank-you to all the sponsors and participants in this year’s PAWS FOR A CAUSE. The event was such a huge success and wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our community. The Trail SPCA hopes that you and your furry friends had as much fun as we did! See you next year!

The Community Complex was a packed house on Wednesday, Sept. 11 for the annual Parade of Programs. Booth after booth was set up with information available on every activity under the sun. Swimming, gymnastics, basketball, dance, cadets, judo, music, childcare, churches, and many other community groups and organizations were available to answer questions and register people for upcoming classes and activities. The Selkirk Challengers gymnastics booth was very busy

and Leanne Ireland, executive member, said many of the various age groups were filling up quickly. Across the hall, five-year-old Cooper De Lisle and his mom, Niki, were trying to find the perfect gear for the upcoming season at the Castlegar Minor Hockey equipment swap. “I have a helmet and skates,” said Cooper, who was busy sorting through the pads and pants so he would be fully prepared to play his best. Free skating with the Selkirk Saints, free swimming and free use of the weight room also brought a lot of people through the doors.

Scores of people made their way through information and registration booths during the Parade of Programs at the Community Complex on Wednesday, Sept 11. Marvin Beatty

Be sure to put these two fall fair dates on your calendar marvin beatty Castlegar News Reporter

The annual Pass Creek Fall Fair runs this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21 and 22, with fun family events scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. The fair is now in its 18th year and features many exhibits about agriculture, food products and rural lifestyles. The event is all about fun, too, and this year there is a long list of things to take in. Entertainers, musicians, farm animals, miniature golf, pancake breakfasts, horse show, dog show and competition, carnival rides, antique car show, the very popular “Dirty Diggers” event will all be available. Fair coordinator Irene Hill has been involved since the fair started and said the event is coming along nicely and she’s hoping for good weather and attendance. “We estimate about 3,000 come through over the two days,” said Hill by phone. She said she works on the grounds yearround with her husband but come fall fair time, things get much busier. Hill said the horticultural building and

Unless you’ve lived in the same town and same neighbourhood, working at the same job for your whole life… chances are you’ve got experience as the newcomer to a situation. You know what it’s like to be unfamiliar with the lay of the land, the way things are done… and who to go to for help with getting established in a new location. Newcomers need a helping hand and the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) wants to encourage the whole community to help them get it. According to recent trends the West Kootenay region is the destination for about one per cent of immigrants to Canada. The diversity they bring is a benefit to all of us. Cultural variety makes our communities more vibrant and interesting. Megan Read, CBAL’s local settlement worker paid a visit to the Castlegar News on Thursday, Sept. 12 to spread

the word about services available to new residents. Providing verbal and written information, Read outlined the program. “Certainly there are services for anyone who is learning English,” Read began. “There’s a one-to-one tutor program, there are English classes at the library… and they’re all free.” But frustrating roadblocks can likely exist, even for the immigrant who is fluent in English. “Coming into a new country is pretty overwhelming,” Read pointed out. “We forget that everything is still brand new… how to get your health insurance, or where to

go for a driver’s licence, for example… all these things are new, not done the same way as where the person is from.” The CBAL plan for easing the transition of newcomers has a part that you and I can play. It’s called First Contact Training and it’s designed to allow each of us to be helpful to someone making this their new home. There’s a class coming up toward the middle of next month, Megan can let you know the details if you’re interested. She’s fully prepared and eager to respond to all queries. As one of four settlement workers (based in Castlegar, Nelson, Trail and Grand Forks) Read can: • provide information to individuals or small groups about housing, banking, shopping, transportation, daycare, schools… volunteer and mentoring programs; • acquaint people with services relating to employment, health and various other points about adapting to life in Canada. She can also provide referrals.

Those eligible for these services include permanent residents (or those with a letter of approval), live-in caretakers, new Canadian citizens, refugees, or those in the Provincial Nominee program. There are other agencies working to make this program successful, they are, along with CBAL, the Trail Skills Centre, Community Futures Central Kootenay, and Community Futures Boundary. There are also numerous local partners including Kootenay Family Place, the Castlegar and District Public Library, the Chamber of Commerce, and Blueberry Creek Community School. Printed information on how to access details of the Settlement Services is available at numerous locations in Castlegar, and online as well, but the most straightforward link to share here, now, is Megan Read’s contact information.

Treasured memories brought home JIM SINCLAIR Castlegar News Editor

Reaching across international and geographic boundaries to make a difference in the lives of others — there’s an act worth looking back on for the long term. Local youth involved in the Rotary Interact club returned earlier this month from several weeks in Bolivia where they soaked up culture, started friendships that will likely last a lifetime, and did a whole pile of hard work. There were 18 young folks who made the trip. Each of the travellers had taken the maximum allowable luggage. Along with some personal effects they were loaded down with gifts for their hosts and others. With carefully measured amounts of sightseeing and recreation, a heavy work schedule was followed. The afternoon (Sept. 15) the group was caught up with at the Kinnaird Hall, it was about to get down to some forward-looking business, including the election of a new president. While still in possession of the executive distinction, Israel Millar provided a summary of the recently concluded expedition. “We were all so excited to be there we forgot all the hours we had just spent on the plane,” she said. The main goal of the visit

was do work on a community school. “It was fantastic, like, honestly,” said Israel. “From my perspective I could still be down there doing work at that centre because it was a lot of hard physical work, but it was really worth it because the kids at the centre, and their parents, and the people running it were so thankful. We’d have days when we’d show up for work, and we didn’t have shovels anymore because the parents were so eager to volunteer. Everyone there was so friendly and so proud of what we were doing. We were greeted so warmly in Bolivia… it was fantastic.” Israel noted how the locals in Cochabamba had not been in need of someone to show them what was needed, but a lack of resources and the ever-present general poverty make it tough to get major projects started and completed. “Us coming down was kind of the start of the project,” said Israel. “Otherwise we doubt it would have happened. They

have lots of students at the school… and they’re doing their best. We were so happy we could help.” The idea for the project came to the visitors from fellow Rotarians based in Cochabamba. Back to the future, so to speak, the club was in a bit of a re-grouping mode that Sunday afternoon in Kinnaird. “It’s always kind of up in the air for the first couple of months when we’re back in Castlegar, mainly because we need to see where our club’s at,” said Israel… “kind of take our time coming out of the trip… refocus and reorganize.” Whatever developments may occur within the group, it’s apparent a strong link has been has been created on the other side of the equator. “Bolivia will always kind of be a place for the Castlegar Interact Club to think about going to in future,” Millar concluded. “Hopefully in 2015 there will be another trip.”

The Welcoming Communities Program has been created to ensure newcomers have the best possible chance of settling in our beautiful region.

To assist those who play a critical role in this the welcomemat.ca website has been created to provide a free online training resource. On the site you will find essential information on defining and describing immigrants, understanding the immigrant experience, employment barriers for newcomers and increasing awareness in your community. The training is self paced, and when you feel ready there is even a certified test for you or your staff. So go ahead, make a positive contribution to your community and become a more welcoming individual, visit www.welcomemat.ca today.

At the Kootenay Gallery’s Annual General Meeting held on Thursday, September 12, Val Field, executive director reported: “This past year has been a very good one for the gallery. We gauge our success by how well we have met our goals set out in our annual strategic planning session. One such goal is to ensure that the people of this community feel this is their gallery. We have adopted a policy of admission by donation so that it is

truly accessible to everyone. We are always looking for ways for the community to utilize this facility. For example, we host the regular meetings of the West Kootenay Federation of Canadian Artists, the Women in Business hold their monthly lunch meetings here and we host the annual Sculpturewalk Awards Gala — just to mention a few.” The Gallery continues to hold workshops, special events and exhibitions that support artists who live and work in the West Kootenay

region as well as provide audiences the opportunity to view exhibitions from away. Field also emphasized how the Kootenay Gallery is benefiting from being part of a community which recognizes that arts and culture are important components of a healthy vibrant community, mentioning several groups who are now working together to make this happen: the Castlegar Arts Council and Advisory Council, the City of Castlegar and the Regional District with the recreation/

cultural programmer, Audrey Polovnikoff, the Columbia Basin Trust, the Doukhobor Discovery Centre, Sculpturewalk Castlegar and several businesses all recognizing the economic, social as well as cultural benefits that come with promoting arts and culture. The annual fundraiser, Soup for the Cultured Soul, is the result of collaboration with Sculpturewalk, Krueckl Financial and the Element Club Bar Grill ...

Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary members lent support for 29 bicycle riders taking part in “WaCanId”, as they made their way from Trail to Nelson on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Darlene Kalawsky and a number of other local Rotarians, greeted the riders at Castlegar City Hall as they stopped for a food and rest break as they made their way around the “International Selkirk Loop.” Many riders wandered around the downtown core taking in

Sculpturewalk, before eventually heading onwards to Nelson. The Rotary fundraiser, through Washington, B.C. and back into Idaho, is North America’s only multi-national scenic loop and the riders were on day three when they hit Castlegar. Two groups started out from Sandpoint, Idaho, with one heading north towards Bonners Ferry and Creston and the second heading west towards Oldtown. The riders were expected to come together for a reception and dinner in Nelson. Three support vehicles stay in touch with the riders, mak-

Education

Selkirk College reaches agreement with Island school SUBMITTED

Selkirk College recently signed an agreement with Royal Roads University (RRU) on Vancouver Island to allow Selkirk Business Administration graduates to transfer into RRU’s Bachelor of Commerce and Business Administration programs after two years of study. Selkirk students, who have successfully completed a Business Administration diploma in Accounting and Finance or Professional Management, and have a minimum ‘B’ GPA, are able to block transfer to Royal Roads University (RRU) to pursue their degree in either Sustainability and International Business or Entrepreneurial Management. “Well articulated and seamless post-secondary pathways are absolutely critical to effectively providing students with options for establishing rewarding careers,� said Angus Graeme, Selkirk’s president and CEO in a release. “Our block transfer agreements with Royal Roads University, in their nation-

ally recognized bachelor’s degrees in Commerce and Business Administration, allow our Business Administration diploma graduates to enter directly into year three of their degree. Institutional partnership agreements like these result in highly employable graduates, lower costs to students, and a very rich educational experience.�

“Knowing I could transfer my courses to complete my degree at RRU was a great option...� Wade Swagar

The agreement means students are able to pursue their education at a B.C. university and continue to work toward a successful career. “After completing my Business Administration diploma at Selkirk, I wanted to continue my education and get a bachelor’s degree,�

said Wade Swagar, a Selkirk student who will transfer to RRU’s Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management in March, 2014. “Knowing I could transfer my courses to complete my degree at RRU was a great option that I wouldn’t have otherwise had, and it allowed me to stay closer to home to complete the first part of my schooling before moving on.� The agreement between RRU’s Faculty of Management and Selkirk’s School of Business benefits students and builds on Selkirk’s strategic directions to increase enrolments, and engage the wider community in learning and developing innovative programs and services. For more information on transfer courses, please contact Natasha Makortoff, in Selkirk’s Academic Governance at 250-365-7292.

Individuals have volunteered such things as a golf package, a therapeutic massage and Christmas wreaths. These promises can be viewed online and bids can be made by contacting the gallery with a final bidding opportunity at the Christmas at the Gallery opening night. The gallery is a great place to become involved as a volunteer in the gift shop, during special events or with exhibitions. Also anyone interested in joining the board of directors is encouraged to visit the gallery website and fill out the application. The Kootenay Gallery is located adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre across from the Castlegar Airport and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. With an air conditioned gift shop featuring items created by local artists in every artistic medium, this hidden gem is definitely worth a visit.

The gallery is part of the organizing committee for the successful annual Kootenay Festival which is made up of individuals who represent local cultural groups. “We feel excited that these relationships have been formed and we will continue to work together, helping each other achieve success,” states Field. There are many groups who have a hand in ensuring the gallery continues to function. The very popular Sunday Concert Series is made possible from funding received from TD Bank, CBT Community Initiatives, and Castlegar Arts Council. The calendar of exhibitions is supported through sponsorships from Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation and Kootenay Savings Credit Union.

Sports Castlegar speed skaters set for new season with Nelson club submitted

The Nelson Speed Skating Club is about to begin it’s 20132014 season and those interested in the sport can learn more during registration at the multi-purpose room at the Nelson & District Community Complex on Saturday, Sept. 28 between 12:15 and 2:15 pm. The club has skaters from all over the West Kootenays, including five from Castlegar, ranging in age from five to 68. While most compete in B.C. racing events, the club also has members who join either for the fun, the exercise or just to learn a new sport. The club also

has members whose goal is to improve their conditioning and skating techniques for hockey. Darrell Rasmussen, former Canadian National Team member, returns for a second straight year as a coach, joining head coach Jason Hartleb and junior coach Emily Musa. The club was guided to a successful season last year with Rasmussen’s help. Many of last year’s athletes are returning and the club hopes to attract new members to experience the fast thrills of short track racing. Among those returning is Tyler Hartleb, 15, the current

B.C. Long Track Champion and four of his siblings, Ryan, Ian and Kaetlyn. Castelegar resident Mercedes Phillips is also on the team. Tyler has been alternating practices between Kelowna, Calgary and Nelson as he trains towards the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George. He has been training for both long track and short track and given his progress should qualify for both. If successful, he will have to choose one of the two to represent BC at the Games. Other members are training for the 2014 B.C. Winter Games to be held in

Mission in February in addition to events in other communities like Kelowna, Kamloops and Salmon Arm. Practices begin the first week in October and continue until mid-March. Members can choose to skate up to three times per week depending upon their skill level and goals. Former members who have gone on to greater speed skating exploits are Scott Bickerton (Nelson) and Ashley Nelson (Crescent Valley), who are both now with the National Long Track Development Team. The club offers a 10 week “learn to speed skate” program and

Nelson Speed Skating Club member Darrell Rasmussen rounds a curve. submitted: Nelson Speed Skating Club/Harold Schock

has skates for rent — although hockey skates are okay for newcomers. Registration for new and returning members for the

2013/2014 season will take place in the multi-purpose room at the Nelson & District Community Complex on Saturday, Sept. 28 between

12:15 and 2:15 pm. Anyone interested in the sport should contact head coach Jason Hartleb at 250304-4416 for more information.

The Castlegar Rebels opened their regular season against the Nelson Leafs on Friday, Sept. 13 on a high note, raising the KIJHL Champions and Kootenay Conference Champions banners to the rafters in front of loud and proud Castlegar home fans. The Rebels had just seven goals during the pre-season versus 23 goals against, and came out on the losing in all four exhibition games played. The worst of the losses came at the hands of the Leafs, who hammered the Rebs for 14 goals in games earlier in the week. Unfortunately, that trend continued in the first period with Nelson putting the boots hard to starting goaltender Nate Rabbit. Nelson forward Travis Wellman, a former Rebel and speedy as ever, got two on his old teammates at 12:22 and 14:44. The first of Wellman’s goals also came with an assist to another former Castlegar player, Jamie Vlanich.

Though rookie forward #15-Ed Lindsey tried to rally the troops with a breakaway goal of his own at 10:52, the first period rally was cut short when Leafs rookie blueliner Brandon Sookro pushed one home with just two minutes to play. In the second, the Rebels bounced back thanks in part to numerous power play opportunities. The period saw five minors, all of which went against the Leafs. The Rebels got back into the game at 10:16 courtesy of #27-Quinn Klimchuk, who took a feed from Darren Medeiros and put a massive slap-shot

past Leafs net-minder Tyler Moffat. The game turned chippy late in the second period with a number of whistles, setting up a scintillating third. The Rebels found another gear in the middle frame and pulled ahead on the shot clock 24 - 22 after 40 minutes. Under three minutes into the third, Robson Cramer put the Leafs up by two and they never looked back. Wellman secured his early season hat-trick at 10:45 on the power play and the final score was 5 - 2. The Rebels turned in a slightly better performance in game two against the Grand

Forks Border Bruins the following night but dropped to 0 - 2 on the season after a come-from-behind, overtime winning performance by the Bruins. Early on, it seemed as if it was all Castlegar, with Grand Forks goaltender Dominic Stadnyk being peppered with 20 shots in the first, with two of them finding the mesh for an early Rebels lead. The first Rebels goal came from Derek Georgopoulos at 15:13 while shorthanded. Aaron Brewer and Darren Medeiros had assists on the play. The second came on the power play at 5:58 from Chase Reddin, with Brewer picking up his second assist of the night. Stadnyk had little chance on the second goal with both Matt Wojak and Cam McLennan in the box for tripping on the same play. At the other end, Patrick Zubick had a much quieter start to his night, facing just five shots from the Bruins during the first 20 minutes.

Grand Forks turned the tables considerably in the second, however, outshooting the Rebels 13 - 4 and applying pressure to the Rebs all over the ice. Though there was no scoring from either side, it was a precursor to what was about to come. Grand Forks pulled within one at 11:00 when Lethbridge product Connor Gross ending any hopes the Rebels had of a shutout by banging one home. The Rebels had a difficult time with puck possession but solid defence maintained the one goal lead until Gross assisted on another scoring play, connecting with Jackson Purvis for the equalizer, shorthanded, at 4:07. Zubick had come far out of his crease on the play and was unable to get back into position to stop the tying goal. In overtime, Purvis capitalized on the power play, with help from Gross and Reid Robertson for the game winner at 2:36.

During the Castlegar Rebels season-opener on Friday, Sept. 13. two championship banners from last season were raised to the rafters.

On Sunday, Nate Rabbitt got the call in net for the Rebels in an afternoon start against the Kimberley Dynamiters. Both he and Kimberley’s Jeremy Mousseau had to be sharp in goal in a back-and-forth tilt that saw the Dynamiters outshoot the Rebels 32 - 24. Kimberley opened the scoring on a power play goal from Dylan Sibbald just over three minutes in but the Rebs answered back at 11:37 on a marker from defenceman Aaron Brewer; Darren Medeiros assisted on the play. Trhoughout th game, every time the Rebels evened things up, Kimberley found

a way to pull ahead. The 2 - 1 goal came from Jason Richter who gobbled up a wraparound chance from Jared March at 6:49. In the second, Medeiros got off a quick snap on a fast breakaway that was almost corralled by Mousseau but stayed low and snuck over the line. The game heated up in the third, locked at two apiece, and the Rebs seemed intent on driving hard to the finish. A two-onone break narrowly missed giving them a very early lead in the third but near the halfway mark Brewer came through with his second of the night, slipping one in

on a sharp angle from Mousseau’s left side. Brewer leads the team’s scoring race with two goals and three assists in three games. At the 7:10 mark, a patient second-effort from Kimberley forward Jason Richter saw him pick up his own re-bound Karen and bang it home to level the game and send it to overtime. It was a quick ending in overtime, as March banged home the game winner unassisted at 3:41. The Rebels now take the show, and two points, on the road to Spokane on Friday, Sept. 20. The Braves have yet to find a win this season either.

Sports Perfect pre-season start for Saints marvin beatty Castlegar News Reporter

The Selkirk Saints began their sevengame preseason schedule on Friday, Sept. 13, taking both games against the Fort McMurraybased Keyano College Huskies. The first game in Nelson on Friday was a high-scoring affair that ended at 76 with Dylan Smith providing the overtime winner. Kim Verigin, Selkirk College athletic director said the game never should have gone to overtime and he felt the Saints were in control most of the night. The facts bear Verigin out; though Keyano got off two shots in the first 15 seconds (neither went in), the Saints were up by two goals twice in the game and never got behind. The Huskies, however, fought back and tied the game with 12 seconds in regulation. Cody Fidgett and Stefan Gonzales each scored twice, while Darnell Dyck and Scott Swiston added goals of their own.

Former Major Junior product Scott Sandercock led the way offensively for Keyano College with a goal and four assists. On Saturday, the two teams clashed again in Castlegar, in a somewhat surprisingly hard-fought tilt considering the two will never see each other in the regular season. The Saints got the first goal of the game at 5:40 on the power play with all kinds of pressure being applied to Keyano net-minder Jeff Puddephatt, who faced more than 30 shots. Late in the first, it appeared an errant stick during a scrum along the boards caught Keyano’s Tom Fitzpatrick above the left eye, leaving a trail of blood down his face. He appeared to appeal to the referee for more than the two-minute minor that resulted on the play but was unsuccessful. Scott Sandercock tied it up with about three minutes left to play in the first but the Alberta skaters had trouble staying out of the box and the Saints

started the second on the power play. A quick breakaway from #71-Cody Fidgett, near the halfway mark of the middle frame, gave the Saints what would prove to be the game winner. Fidgett added another for good measure with just 3:40 to play in the period. There was no scoring in the third from either side but plenty of penalties. “Keyano College came as advertised,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois in a release. “They were big, physical and worked very hard right through the line-up. We let things get away from us defensively on Friday night and were very pleased

with how the guys responded on Saturday. We never trailed in either game and the work ethic and energy were both at a high level, so overall we’re very pleased with the results.” James Prigione was in net for the Saints on Friday, while Aaron Oakley saw a victory in his college hockey debut on Saturday. The Saints move on to a three-game road trip in Edmonton, taking on Concordia University, the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and Grant McEwan University.

Girls softball season smooth success submitted

Castlegar girls softball teams had a busy season this year, with four mixed t-ball teams (thank you Takaia and Jeramiah), a mites team, two junior teams and one senior girls team. Our house windup this year was held at the Kinnaird Park fields from June 7 - 9, with 14 teams from Fruitvale, Salmo, Trail and Castlegar playing in the wind up. Our teams performed well, with the mites receiving a bronze medal, the Jokers taking a silver medal and the Blue Fusion also netting a bronze. The senior girls placed third and three Castlegar girls played on the PeeWee B team that took a silver in the senior division. It was an exciting and very busy weekend and we thank all the volunteers that helped out. Many of our girls also played on West Kootenay rep teams this year: Makayla Ambrosio played on the U19C team; Elora Hipwell, Allison Griffiths, Shelby Streloff, Brittnay Strelaeff, Molly Benbow, Annie Lepage and Michelle Sofonoff played on U16B team; Emma Lloyd, Chelsea Makeiv and Kelsey Patterson played on the U14B team; Kiya Hipwell, Trinity Kentrop, Sydney Sherstobitoff, Alexis Craig, April Gariepy and Taylor Craig (bat girl) played on the U14C team. These teams travelled to tournaments and represented district 10 at the provincials. The U12C Regionals were held in Trail this year and Castlegar sent a team. The girls did very well, placing second in their division and fourth out of 10 teams. Playing on the team were: Ella Handley, Averi Handley, Taylor Craig, Alexis Craig, Trinity Kentrop, Sydney Sherstobitoff, Kalee Glennie, Kiya Hipwell, Casey Alexander, Sian Spiller-Tisserand, Kadence Ferreira, Sierra Pushie, Connor Salekin. Coaches were: Ben Spiller, Ryan Ferreira, Wayne Salekin and Derek Hipwell. Great job  girls and coaches, we are very proud of you. The Castlegar Girls Softball Association executive would like to thank all the coaches, parents, friends, neighbours, businesses and families who came out to support our children this ball season. See you again next year!

Peggy and Art moved around the province of BC while Art followed mechanical work on large construction projects, including Vanderhoof, Surry, Salmo and Nelson. Peggy was a much-appreciated stay at home mother until 1971. She then began a career in insurance in Nelson and later continued with her career in Castlegar. They resided in Castlegar until 2013 when they moved to be near their two youngest daughters. Besides her family Peggy had a great love of reading, cooking and a 30year passion for quilting. She belonged to both the Nelson and Castlegar Quilt Guilds. Her quilts were admired, and won several awards. She also taught quilting and enjoyed sharing her craft. Her daughters and grandchildren consider these quilts among their most prized possessions. Peggy has requested cremation. The family will be coming to Castlegar for her memorial service to be held at the Castlegar Baptist Church, 419-7th Ave. at 11:00am on Sept 28th, 2013, followed by a luncheon.
