Prospect of region-wide broadband coming CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) approved a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the Regional Broadband Committee (RBC).

Fastest ambulance in region in Creston

The regional district is partnering with several other organizations, including the Regional District of Central Kootenay, Regional District of East Kootenay, Ktunaxa Nation Council, Columbia Basin Trust and Columbia Power Corporation, in creating the Regional Broadband Committee to

develop a regional broadband strategy. “The partnership is to extend broadband high speed internet access to the whole region,” said Larry Gray, chair of the RDKB. “To do that, there’s a plan that’s being development by the Columbia Basin Broadband

Corporation to extend fibre optics to a number of communities in the region and use that as a basis either to build from a central location like Nelson or Trail to business communities and others through fibre connection or through wireless connection.”

If you have a medical emergency in the Kootenays, it’s best to be in Creston, judging by statistics from the BC Ambulance Service. In 2012, Creston’s average response time to Code 3 calls— requiring lights and sirens—was nine minutes and 20 seconds, less than Grand Forks (12:30) and faster than Cranbrook (10:01), Nelson (11:06), Castlegar (10:42), Trail (11:16) and less than half of Rossland’s response time (22:24). However, all were slower than the nineminute standard suggested by the U.S. Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services, a benchmark reached by only 10 communities in the province last year. Creston also posted the fastest times in the region in 2010 and 2011.

Cusack admits setting two fires CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Christopher Cusack, the man charged in connection with two fires set in the Grand Forks and Winnipeg hotels back in 2012, appeared in Grand Forks Court on Tuesday. Cusack is accused of two counts of arson in relation to an inhabited property. Ken Wyllie, representing Cusack, once again pleaded not guilty on behalf of his client, but did submit an admission of facts. In the admission, Cusack admitted

to setting the two fires on March 7, 2012. The first fire was at the Grand Forks Hotel, destroying the building and causing $1 million in damage. The second fire was set on a motorcycle which was under a staircase at the Winnipeg Hotel. The fire spread, causing more than $10,000 worth of damage. Cusack had been at the Winnipeg drinking all day. L. Wark, a bartender and waitress working at the Winnipeg Hotel the night of the fire, appeared on the stand as a witness.

The ‘best ever’ fall fair To the Editor, This year’s Rock Creek and Boundary Fall Fair is being called the best ever by many people, both locals and visitors alike. Though it was not the largest attendance ever mostly due to the Summerland Fall Fair falling on the same weekend, the crowds were steady and the energy was electric. The fair was officially opened by Her Honour Lt. Gov. Judith Guichon who said she was very impressed by the huge number of volunteers who put the fair together and how well everything was coordinated. These statements were echoed by many other visitors, such as the president of the Interior Provincial Exhibition who said it was “the best effort of a small town fair he has ever seen.” The stage was hopping all weekend with local Boundary acts like Laela Heidt, Grand Forks’ Sock Monkey Band, John Vere and Rock Creek’s own Cullpeppers, and the fine finger picking and harmonies of Timely Wonders out of Kelowna. Things got even better as the fair went on, with the Pernell Reichart Band wowing the crowds with their innovative and exciting brand of up beat country and rockabilly music. Rick Valiant provided

something for the older generation as he did Songs of Sinatra, covering some of the greatest hits of the “Chairman of the Board.” The arena was also a buzz of activity Saturday culminating with the wildest events of all, the always popular lawn mower races and this year’s additions of remote control car racing, quad chuckwagon races and quad soccer which drew huge gasps and screams from the crowd. The energy and vibe could be felt by all who attended and as the sun began to set, Tim Hus and his band kept everyone clapping and dancing with his amazing style of country music well into the night, debuting his new album, Western Star. Tim made several comments about what a great venue it was and how good a job the organization and volunteers did in putting everything together. This year the fair had one of the largest number of sponsors ever and the large billboard at the main gates paid tribute to all of them as guests arrived. On stage the medal sponsors were also recognized with banners of thanks, next to the fair logo and theme “Powered by Volunteers.” Sunday things just kept getting better with the gymkhana and horse events in the arena and

Pet of the Week

more action on stage. Tim Hus once again had the crowds clapping hands and tapping feet as he opened the Sunday event before heading off for another show. As the clock neared two in the afternoon the crowds around the stage grew as people waited for children’s entertainer Fred Penner to take the stage, which he did with gusto. All in all, it was a great two days and during the whole event the new power station ran smoothly to assure there were no problems with electricity. Many people commented that they have never seen the grounds look so good, once again due to the huge number of volunteers who came out week after week to fix and prepare things, capped off by the beautiful flowers and plants provided by Hansinger Nursery. The Rock Creek Fall Fair Association is at its highest level of membership ever and everyone is looking forward to keeping this momentum going as we look forward to next year’s event. “Powered by Volunteers” could not have been a better theme and you could see it all over the fair as they smiled at visitors and gave each other high fives. Terry Keough, fair stage and advertising convener

Kudos to job done by fire department

To the Editor, Last Thursday’s fire in City Hall caused many people a great deal of concern. All members and staff of the Boundary Museum Society were sick with fear for the condition of the archives which were located in the basement. When allowed entry on Sunday the board could not believe what they saw. Other than the smell of smoke and a bit of water damage, mostly to office equipment, there was virtually no damage. After seeing the extent of the damage to the first floor it became even more amazing that the basement escaped virtually unscathed. It was unbelievable that the fire department managed to knock down that fire so quickly and used so little water to do it. We all owe them a big thank you for a job well done. Also a thank you to Doug Allin and the city staff for their concern and getting the society entry to the archives as quickly as possible. The society’s archivist, Sue Adrain, will now work out of the Boundary Museum office. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Friday. All enquiries can be directed to 442-3737. Again, thank you fire department, you are amazing. The staff and board of the Boundary Museum Society

Smith discusses en-deering situation at UBCM

Work begins in downtown


Argosy Construction Group Inc. has commenced work on underground irrigation and electrical in the downtown core between Fourth Street and Second Street. Work will take place on “the one-foot section of brick area along the entire length on both sides of Market Ave.” Concrete sidewalk work will also be taking place on Market Ave. and Second Street. Some of the work will take place during business hours, however; access to each business will be maintained, according to Argosy. Concrete will not be poured in front of business access doors during business hours so as to minimize disturbance to the businesses. This work will take place before or after business hours. The date of completion for phase one of the project is Nov. 15.

New locations for city work A new location has been found for city building inspections and utility bill payments. Effective Tuesday, Oct. 1, building inspection services and utility bill payment services will be located at 7425 Fifth St., across from the Overwaitea grocery store and beside the Walker Development Centre. More than 50 people attended a special council meeting Monday, Sept. 23 at the Grand Forks Senior Centre for an update on the steps taken to restore all services for residents, businesses and visitors. “We recognize that it will be some time before we are back in the refurbished City Hall and we are making plans to ensure that we can continue to provide the necessary services to our community,” said Mayor Brian Taylor. The public works office, located at 130 Industrial Dr., will remain the temporary home of corporate services, development, engineering and planning services and finance (with the exception of utility bill payments) until a more suitable location can be found. The search is underway and it is anticipated that a new location will be announced in the coming weeks, said Taylor. City staff will be available to handle inquiries in person at either location. The phone lines have been re-routed and people can reach city staff at the same phone number: 442-8266. With remote access to online databases, staff are able to continue to provide service as before. City council will continue to hold regular meetings. These will be held at the Grand Forks offices of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, located at 2140 Central Ave.

Graffiti artist sought by police On Sept. 24 at 12:24 p.m., Grand Forks RCMP received a call reporting that a short male wearing a black hat, hoodie and blue jeans just spray painted a Chinese symbol onto the back of a stop sign at 64 Avenue and Como Street. Police patrolled the area but were unable to locate the suspect, said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. The damage to the sign was minimal.

News tips

Grand Forks Gazette

Sure, they’re cute and usually tame. But deer in Grand Forks have become more and more of a menace, chewing up trees and gardens. That’s not even mentioning the growing hazard for automobile drivers who must keep a vigilant eye on the side of the road while driving, lest one dart in front of their vehicle. Grand Forks Coun. Gary Smith was one of several councilors who attended the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) conference in Vancouver on Sept. 16-19. Smith, who heads the city’s deer committee, met with Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations, to discuss the deer problem. “We don’t want to find ourselves in similar situations as other communities such as Invermere and Cranbrook, where they’re meeting with resistance to their methods with dealing with their urban deer issue,” said Smith “We also wanted to find out the plans behind their urban management plan. We were also looking for support

from the ministry in terms of legal issues that might arise as we move forward with our plans.” Smith said Grand Forks is looked at as a model by other communities for their progressive methods towards dealing with deer. Some of the methods the city has employed includes monitoring and counting deer, and educating the public. A Grand Forks version of WildSafeBC is also ready to

start, he said. “So we were looking for the support from the ministry to assist us in that,” Smith said. But it’s a challenge to stand out when so many municipalities are making pitches to various government ministries, he said. The city had 15 minutes to make their case, and the minister listened. Smith said Thomson knew Grand Forks had been working hard at coming up with a

plan for dealing with the urban deer, and pledged to help as much as they could. Smith said it was important for the city, whether asking for help with deer or anything else, to show they were capable of standing on their own. “Rather than just come there with our hats in hand, we want to demonstrate that we’re a vital and functioning community … and that we have done a lot of the preliminary work,” he said.

Bylaw adjudication gets its day in court CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

At the regular board meeting for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), the board of directors approved, in principle, the undertaking of the Bylaw Notice Dispute Adjudication system as a means of bylaw enforcement. Bylaw adjudication is an alternative to the court-based model currently in place to enforce bylaw violations. Through the Local Government Bylaw Notice Enforcement Act, bylaw adjudication provides a framework for a nonjudicial system for local governments to

deal with bylaw enforcement disputes. “This is a process to allow the enforcement of bylaws and to provide an opportunity to collect fines that would be a result of someone breaking the bylaw,” said Larry Gray, chair of the RDKB. “In the normal course of events, if someone didn’t pay their fine, you would take them to court. What this allows is a dispute resolution system where any disputes are referred to an adjudicator.” Gray said that taking disputes to court where a judge would decide if the fine stays or is reduced is a very costly process. “In this case, it would go to an adju-

dicator who would hear both sides and would say, ‘You have to pay the fine.’ Or not. There’s no in between. The reason it’s better is we don’t have to pay court costs. You could do it over the phone. In terms of collecting that money—it could be a lien on the property or sent to a collection agency. In the case of municipalities it could go on your tax dollars.” The adjudicators would be appointed by the board. Gray said the process will take some time as it needs to first be sent to the provincial government for approval. “This is the first step in the process,” he said.

Getting up to speed


he Regional District of Kootenay Boundary is now coming up to speed with high speed—or broadband—internet. The intent is to partner with the Columbia Basin Broadband Corporation (CBBC) and have a fibre optic network throughout the rural areas and into the communities it contains, delivering what would be a vast improvement to the current speed of Internet service. The value of a faster and more capable Internet service cannot be understated. Many smaller communities are already planning to bring fibre in, with an eye toward how it will grow business—including encouraging work-from-home businesses—in the area. It is a tough idea to measure, however, since the prospect of a boost to the economy is largely a risk and a gamble the various decision makers have to consider as a foresight, against the real costs now of bringing the fibre in. The hope is those decision makers will have that foresight and see the real future benefit of the service, instead of the costs now staring them in the face.


SUBmISSION GUIdElINES Submissions for community news can be dropped off at the newspaper between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, or emailed to Please ensure time sensitive material is sent in at least two weeks in advance of the scheduled event.

BS baffles brains and other blarney second opinion



s a young man working my way through university in factories back east, I learned a phrase that over the years has reverberated in my head many times. “BS baffles brains,” my working stiff colleagues used to say, referring to the gullibility of college educated, white collar managers, the ease with which they could be fooled, and their inability to use common sense or apply practical solutions to problems. A more current reference would be that they “lacked street smarts.” Enter the Freemen-on-theland, that wacky conglomeration of con-men, fraudsters, petty crooks and ultra-right wing ideologues who pop up from time to time, most recently in Calgary. There, one Mario Antonocci (aka Andreas

Pirelli) took over the townhouse of Rebekah Caverhill, claiming that as a Freeman, he was not bound by Canadian law and could take possession of any property he wanted. After the police carted off Mario to the pokey, some of his fellow travelers claimed the property as the “embassy” of a brand new nation, Deneza Country and moved in. They are apparently still there. How can they do all this? Simple: BS baffles brains. The Freemen refuse to obey court orders, warrants, or indeed any law, by-law, judgement or edict issued by any government saying that they are able to opt out of all obligations because of their inherent rights and/or common law established generations in the past. They “prove” this by producing documents that they have made up and then had notarized by other Freemen. They quote the speeches and writings of various fringe Libertarians, shout down those who oppose them and in general bully whoever

they can to get their way. Caverhill has been trying to get Antonocci/Pirelli out for two years. He simply refused to go as the various judgements were acquired and presented. Not only that but he was on trial for assault in 2010 in Quebec (another house takeover; he allegedly threw the female landlord down a flight of stairs) and just didn’t bother showing up. In return, no one bothered hunting him down. Confronted by nonsensespouting mental midgets, our complete legal and law enforcement establishments are thrown into a tizzy; lawyers and magistrates, judges and attorney generals all rendered helpless by the blustering babble of a handful of imbecilic blowhards. Examples of the conspiracy theories and paranoid ramblings of the Freemen are easy to find. Google “world freemen society” and read how, among other things, your birth certificate has enslaved you to the government and led to them owning your property and in

A plea to help someone have a warm bed To the Editor, I am writing to this community on behalf of the Boundary Emergency Transitional Housing Society (BETHS). As many of you know we provide emergency shelter to those in need of it in the Grand Forks and surrounding Boundary area during the cold winter months. We have joined in a collaborative venture with Whispers of Hope and Habitat for Humanity in what we call the Multi Agency Accommodation Project (MAAP). Through the good graces of our mayor and council we share a building on Riverside that accommodates all three of these community programs under one roof. I am one of eight directors on the BETHS board. I am writing to you because we need the help of this community to fulfill our goal of pro-

viding emergency shelter to those in need, each night for this coming winter season. Each night the shelter is open we have a trained paid staff member in attendance. We need one volunteer each night to help in this effort. In order to make this work we need a group of 15 to 20 volunteers in total. Each volunteer would be prepared to help out for two nights per month for five months. That is one night every two weeks. This is not an onerous task. Staff on duty could potentially have the option to alternate getting some sleep, while it’s quiet and guests are sleeping, and if the shelter is unattended by midnight for any reason, then the shelter is shut down for the night. All shifts will be scheduled well in advance and we can be flexible in this regard.

We currently have about 10 volunteers. We need twice that many to make this work properly and not overload anyone. If we don’t have help we may not be able to open or we may have to close mid season. I once read that the most valuable thing in life that you have to give to another person is your time. No matter how rich or poor, or how fortunate or unfortunate we are, we all have roughly the same time to spend. Our community is ultimately what we make of it and it boils down to how much time we have to spend on one another. Please consider if you have a little time to help someone else have a warm bed out of the cold. I can be reached at (leave a message if I’m not there). Elliot Teskey, BETHS secretary

Perhaps we don’t really need freedom To the Editor, On smart meters and eco-fascism: Forced monitoring of activity inside private residences under any pretext is absolutely repulsive. The misleading excuses are clearly placation and distraction in order to get abuse-able infrastructure in place. Watch the other hand, it is an obvious bait and switch. The incredible potential for abuse is reason enough to ban this technology altogether. What is this blitzkrieg of stealth

installations if everything is above board? Why the force? Why the lies? These are the very types of things people do to further indefensible agendas, the type which cannot survive the heat of intellectual scrutiny, and everyone of sound mind knows that. We’ve all seen the videos of the covert installers have we not? The guilt radiates from their faces. Only criminals conduct their business with such guile. Furthermore, this

technology has not adequately been proven to be safe to people or property. They have, however, proven to burn down homes and offer a spying platform for tyrants. Why is this dark operation above scrutiny? What exactly causes outrage and uprising if not invasion of privacy within the home, lies, manipulation, force, and monetary extortion? Can’t anyone see fascism for what it is? The new “Hermann Gorings” spout propa-

ganda, framing the takeover as the benevolent act of far seeing benefactors. Meanwhile, they demolish the bill of rights with disdainful strokes of the pen, and the intellectuals who draw light to the scheme are framed as paranoid half-wits. Do you buy it? Perhaps we really don’t deserve freedom anymore. Welcome to the new Canada, God help us. T.C.Whalen, Kootenay-Boundary resident

Thumbs Up to MoT dog rescuer Thumbs up to the people who cleaned up the back alley behind the Telus, Castle Building Centre, Kettle River Veterinary and the Hawk Shop buildings. Thumbs down to drivers who think 75 Avenue is a speedway. You make it very dangerous for those of us who have to back out of our driveways. A big thumbs up to the Ministry of Transportation lady who rescued my retriever cross, Jake, during last Monday’s thunderstorm near Roxul and the mill. Thumbs down to the cyclists who ride on the sidewalk. There is a bylaw against this and it is a hazard to pedestrians. Thank you to all who donated to the B.C. Children’s Hospital at the Grand Forks Fly-in on Aug. 25. Thumbs up to the child who donated ‘Sister Bear’ to the Thrift Shop. It is in perfect condition

and is going to live with my two-year-old granddaughter in Saskatoon. A Thanksgiving present. Thumbs down to the stop sign at 72 Avenue and Cypress. If the city was concerned about speed, large rolling speed bumps (that don’t get destroyed by snow plows) would be better. If they’re worried about safety they should put in a sidewalk. A stop sign at the junction of a through road and a cul de sac is absolutely ridiculous. Thumbs down to the person that parks his vehicle outside of Buy Low and leaves his dog to bark insanely at everyone coming and going. Would you like to give a thumb up or a thumb down? Email with Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down as a subject line. We could publish your anonymous submission. Attacks on specific businesses and people will not be published.

Making a place in the Boundary While the city must be commended for its initiatives in making the city a more attractive place, the next step in making the city a special place is the more challenging one.


hey started with a couple basic questions: “What makes people love where they live?” and “Why does it matter?” Rousing the Dr. Katherine Loflin and a team Rabble of researchers set out to answer roy ronaghan these questions for the Knight Foundation in Florida whose mission is to help people keep informed and engaged fully in the life of their communities. The study, called the Soul of the Community was done between 2008 and 2010. The team wanted to look at communities in a new way and had no preconceived notion of what they might find out. They asked the two questions above and recorded the results. Forty-three thousand people in 26 communities responded to the questions and the team was overwhelmed with the results. Loflin reported that what they found out shocked them. In a paper titled Learning From Knight’s Soul of the Community, Leaning Toward the Future of Placemaking, Loflin states, “We not only found out that resident attachment was related to solid economic outcomes for places, but that the things that most drove people to love where they live were not the local economy or even their personal civic engagement in the place (as one might expect), but the ‘softer sides’ of place.” The primary findings of the study were: “There is an important and significant correlation between how attached people fee to where they live and local GDP growth.” The more people love their city or town, the more economically vital the place will be. “What most drives people to love where they live (their attachment) is their perception of aesthetics, social offerings, and openness of a place.” What people most want out of a neighbourhood is a place that is attractive, engaging, friendly, and welcoming. Loflin provides a list of nine lessons that were learned from the responses to the study. • Places have to know what constitutes their unique identity. They should not try to be something they are not. • Places must know their strengths and build on those strengths in bringing about change. • Optimism is closely linked to attachment to a place. The more optimistic people feel about the future of their city or town, the more likely they are going to be attached to it. • The population of young talent in a place is critical. According to the study, young people look for a place to live before looking for or creating a job. • Corporations want to locate in places that sell themselves. They believe that there is a strong relationship between job satisfaction and community attachment. Selling the community where they are located must be one of their objectives. • Growth must be done in a smart and sustainable way; it should not be “growth for growth’s sake.” • Greater impact will come sooner if the public perception of one of three things is changed: social offerings, openness, and attachment. • Start anywhere to have impact and remember that the best ideas often come from the residents themselves. • There is power in a place as it exists today and energy should be put into building on that power. While the City of Grand Forks must be commended for its initiatives in making the city a more attractive place the next step in making the city a special place is the more challenging one. Perhaps it is time people were engaged and asked the questions that Loflin and her team asked. Would the results be the same as those obtained in the Soul of the Community study? There is only one way to find out and that is to ask the questions to determine what dynamics affect people in Grand Forks and where the city’s power lies.

Harvest Fest a big success CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Despite inclement weather, the third annual Harvest Festival, which took place Saturday at Spencer Hill Orchard, was a big success. Plenty of folks braved the rain to catch several musical acts, freshly pressed cider, sausages, pumpkins and other fresh fruit and vegetables. “The Harvest Festival is a collaboration between our orchard and the Kettle Valley Food Co-op,” said Sheila Dobie, co-owner of Spencer Hill Orchard. “We are producer members of the Kettle Valley Co-op. We have done this as a traditional event at the farm as the apple festival.” A few years ago orchard owners decided to do it in collaboration with the food co-op and invite other producer members. “We just figured it would be a way to profile other producer members and have a celebration,” said Dobie. Some of the acts to take the stage were Leeza Leclair, Laura Jean Cuthbert, the Hip Sisters and Kate Haddow.

Teen suicide report released Despite the media and political focus on bullying, an analysis of recent youth suicides in B.C. has found that bullying was a factor in only one in four cases. The B.C. Coroners Service released the report of a death review panel last week, looking at 91 youth suicides between 2008 and 2012. It recommends better coordination between schools, hospitals and mental health services to identify teens at risk of suicide, and follow-up after suicides to determine drug use, sexual orientation and other possible risk factors. More than 60 per cent of young people studied had previous or current contact with the mental health system, the largest common factor. But 27 per cent of the cases were teens who took their lives without any previous warning signs identified by family, school or people in the community. Almost half of the teens in the study were 17 and 18, and two out of three successful suicides were boys. Of the 91 cases, 18 were aboriginal, a rate about twice as high as the general population.

MLAs’ constituency assistants from across B.C. crowded into the idle B.C. legislative chamber last week to get up to speed on new financial reporting requirements for their office expenses. Provincial politicians have been working to open up their expense reporting since a 2012 report by former Auditor General John Doyle exposed “pervasive deficiencies” in that and other areas of the legislature’s $70 million operating budget. The first steps after that report were to begin disclosing MLA expense totals on a quarterly basis, and to begin holding meetings of the long-secret Legislative Assembly Management Committee in public. That committee met Tuesday and agreed to extend the deadline to begin detailed expense disclosure from constituency offices from Jan. 1 to April 1. In addition to base pay of more than $101,000 a year and an expense account for travel and accommodation, MLAs receive a constituency allowance of $119,000 a year, mainly for staff and office space.

Officers getting control of the situation IN BRIEF Back on the energy diet


Grand Forks Gazette

The new animal control officers covering Grand Forks and the surrounding region are in place and have begun work. After signing a one-year contract with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) this summer for animal control, the Commissionaires hired locals Nicole Best and Gary Maletta for the job. The Gazette spoke to the two, as well as with their supervisor Tom Houston, manager of client services for Commissionaires for B.C. Interior, who was in from Kelowna helping set up the office. “Animal control has been quite successful in places like Enderby and Armstrong where we’ve worked quite closely with the communities there,” said Houston. “And this here is a great opportunity for us to work with the region.” Best and Maletta are both locals who have farm backgrounds. Maletta was born in Grand Forks and raised in Greenwood. “I’ve been in the area all my life,” he said. “I worked in the lumber industry, in farming. I’ve been around animals pretty much my whole life.” Best has been in Grand Forks going on 40 years, mostly all on a farm up the North Fork. The officers have set hours but will be on call 24 hours per day. “They’ll respond to calls of animals in distress, or runaway animals,” said Houston. “They help with reuniting of

animals with their owners. They will also be involved in the community to educate people proactively on bylaws.” The animal control office is located at the former SPCA pound location on Donaldson Drive. The building has eight runs that have areas inside the building and outside for the dogs. The building has two other indoor pens, two outdoor pens for exercise, and a special cell for particularly unruly dogs. The officers started on Sept. 7 and have had steady business since then. At this point, the officers are only focusing on dogs, although they will help conservation officers with other animals as needed. The officers started up a Facebook site which has become quite popular

with over 100 likes already. “We’re also linked with the Boundary lost and found page,” said Best. “So anything that goes on our Facebook page will also go on the lost and found page.” Houston said the officers are centered in Grand Forks but patrol out east to Christina Lake and west to Greenwood and everything in between. Best stressed how important licensing for dogs is. “If we have a dog that comes in and it doesn’t have a licence, we have no idea where it belongs,” she said. “At least if it has a licence we can get it back to its’ owner.” The animal control number is 250443-1851.

Many customers will soon see reduced energy use thanks to their commitment to FortisBC’s energy diets. In the Kootenay-Boundary more than 600 homeowners are participating in the Energy Diet, making the region closer to reaching its goal of 1,000 energy assessments. In Grand Forks, the city pledged $25 for 100 home assessments. The energy diets give people the opportunity to receive home energy assessments for $60 dollars—compared to the regular price of $400. This number drops even lower in the 15 communities where local governments have offered additional funds for assessments. To help manage the upfront costs of energy efficient upgrades, participants will also get assistance applying for up to $6,000 worth of rebates and, if eligible, access to long-term loans.

The slowest response times in West Kootenay/ Boundary last year were in Christina Lake (27:05), Rock Creek (26:27), and Kaslo (24:05). The former two don’t have ambulance stations, but the latter does. The figures, obtained through a freedom of information request by former air ambulance pilot Hans Dysarsz, surprised rural Creston regional district director Larry Binks, a retired BC Ambulance administrator. “Under 10 minutes is good,” he said. “It comes down to staffing: if a station isn’t staffed properly, response time is going to be poor. We recognize we live in rural areas and won’t get the same response times [as in urban centres] but certainly deserve better than what is happening.” Creston achieved its response times despite only having one full-time paramedic and 13 part-timers. By comparison, Nelson has seven full-timers and 33 part-timers, Trail—which serves Rossland—has four full-timers and 27 part-timers, Castlegar one full-timer and 27 part-timers, and Grand Forks one full-timer

and 14 part-timers. (Part time employees submit their availability and shifts are staffed accordingly.) BC Ambulance spokeswoman Kelsie Carwithen said response times aren’t determined solely by staffing—other factors include weather, terrain, roads, traffic, and geography. Reponses in rural and remote areas are generally longer due to the distances involved. Sixteen ambulances respond to calls in West Kootenay, including stations in Nelson, Castlegar, Trail, Kaslo, Fruitvale, New Denver, Riondel, Rossland, Salmo, and Winlaw. They aren’t restricted to emergencies in their immediate area, so a Nelsonbased ambulance might handle calls from Castlegar and Salmo. Carwithen said the ambulance service constantly monitors call volumes and is committed to improving all response times, especially for the most urgent calls where speedy arrivals can affect patient outcomes. “Despite increased call volume, overall response times for urgent events in the West Kootenay have remained consistent since 2011/12,” she said.

IN BRIEF Rec. trails join geo craze A partnership between Backroad Mapbooks and the province is bringing ‘geo-caching’ to 18 of B.C.’s popular recreation sites and trails. In recognition of their 20th anniversary, Backroad Mapbooks has developed a GeoTour program to celebrate and promote Canada’s beautiful backcountry. Backroad Mapbooks has teamed up with the Recreation Sites and Trails BC to launch phase one of the tour, which includes using 18 recreation sites and trails throughout the province as ‘geo-caching’ locations. Begbie Falls near Revelstoke, Buchanan Lookout recreation site near Nelson and Monroe Lake near Cranbrook are the three Kootenay Rockies sites. A total of three cache containers have been hidden in each of B.C.’s six regions, plus two bonus caches for a total of 20 caches. The caches are named and hidden under three specific themes: on the trail, on the road and on the water. To find out more about Phase One of the GeoTour including instructions and which recreation sites and trails are taking part visit: adventures/geotours/backroadmapbooks. The object of the tour is to find all the hidden caches and ‘swap’ and collect items inside the containers. Learn more about geo-caching:

Population over 35 million Canada’s population has surpassed 35 million over the past year, a 1.2 per cent increase with growth generally higher in the western provinces, according to Statistics Canada. Canada’s population is estimated at 35,158,300, an increase of 404,000 over the last year. The 1.2 per cent increase is the same as the previous year’s and similar to the annual growth in the country over the last three decades. The country’s population growth rate—if averaging the numbers between 2006 to 2011—has fallen below the estimated rates for countries such as Luxembourg (+8.7 per cent), Ireland (+7.8 per cent) and Australia (+7.6 per cent). Since 1993-94, net international migration has been the main source of population growth for Canada. From July 1, 2012, to July 1, 2013, it was responsible for two-thirds of the country’s population growth.

A reminder

Craig Lindsay photo

Sharon Kennesy (left) and Chris Parakin, two volunteers at the Boundary Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop, struggle to put a mattress in the garbage bin outside the store. The ladies would like to remind residents that the auxiliary store does not accept mattresses or any other large items. In addition, they only accept clothes, and other items, in good, saleable condition. “People often drop junk off here to avoid paying tipping fees at the dump,” said auxiliary president Carole Richmond. “What happens is that we end up having to pay those fees ourselves.” The thrift store raises money to pay for equipment for the local hospital.

Broadband Broadband is already present in certain areas in the West Kootenay. Gray said the idea is to expand the broadband coverage although some rural areas will have to settle for wireless coverage due to cost and accessibility. “There is a partnership agreement with Shaw and that would allow for more connections with other centres such as Grand Forks in the future,” he said. Grand Forks has a free Wi-Fi

Wark said Cusack refused to pay his $35 bill, telling her he owned the hotel. She said he was kicked out after trying to take beer from another customer’s pitcher. According to the admission of guilt, later that night Cusack rode his bicycle to the PetroCanada and filled a jerry can with gasoline that he used to start the fires. Cusack had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder 10 years before. He had been admitted to a psychiatric hospital and been on various medications after complaining of paranoia. Cusack stopped taking his medication five years ago, complaining of feeling sluggish. A couple of days before the fire, Cusack got a prescription from a local doctor in Grand Forks. A local pharmacy couldn’t prescribe the drugs because Cusack was destitute. Judge Fabrick granted the defence an adjournment for further psychiatric assessment. Cusack will return to Grand Forks court on Oct. 15 to fix a hearing date for a continuation. The two acts of arson destroyed the 100-yearold historic Grand Forks Hotel, while the fire at the landmark Winnipeg Hotel was limited to the rear of the building, creating smoke damage throughout the venerable structure. There were no injuries and casualties reported but RCMP said approximately 20 people were displaced due to the fires. The fire department was able to protect surrounding buildings and damage was limited in that regard, Harrison had said. Both hotels have since been demolished with the Grand Forks Hotel site currently a vacant lot.

Continued from Page 1 network set up for the downtown core, although Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor, who sits on the RDKB board as well, says the two are not directly connected. “We’ve got a fibre optic network in our community,” said Doug Allin, CAO of Grand Forks. “We’ve also got a fibre optic masterplan that were bringing to council. “We’re actually looking at that right now—the ability for

businesses to connect to that.” Allin said the city owns its own fibre optic network in partnership with the school district and is looking. The city will be looking down the road at connecting with the Columbia Broadband plan. “There’s also another component which involves other agencies,” he said. “So we want to explore that. We’ll be bringing it to council for their consideration.”

Retirement Living at it’s Best

In this modern age there is no reason that seniors shouldn’t have the best retirement possible. The ideals of having a comfortable home, being able to set your own schedule based upon your interests, exceptionally delicious and nutritious food with the company of others: this should be the norm, not the exception. Seniors should be able to live in a place that ensures they can maintain their independence while also having their needs met, instead of just a ‘home on the hill,’ Fortunately Silver Kettle Village believes in the higher quality of life and aims to provide an entirely new form of housing to seniors that will ensure all residents will have the most opportunity to experience the best years of their life, on their terms. Silver Kettle Village is an amazing community located at an ideal location in Grand Forks, British Columbia.

Full kitchens are laid out to be as bright and comfortable as possible and come with a stove and refrigerator to allow for the preparation of personal meals or snacks anytime. Each suite is also equipped with its own personal heat and air conditioning to allow the residents to decide their personal comfort level. Stepping beyond the privacy of their personal suite, residents will find a wide range and variety of common and shared areas including a fully stocked library, on-site beauty salons, a luxurious and relaxing spa room, a games room filled with a variety of leisure opportunities, and an activity-room which hosts a range of interesting events and entertainment. All this is supplemented with several very cozy and conveniently-placed

For James Wilson, executive director of the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, getting a chance to take a trip to China next month is a great opportunity. The opportunity came up after receiving an email from the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce offering all chamber managers and executive directors from the area to go on an excursion/business trip to China. “It’s a chance to go and see what China has to offer as well as make some business connections and network,” said Wilson. “After the trip, I can bring the information back to the chamber and offer the same trip to members or other interested parties.” Wilson said the tour will include trips to attractions such as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square as well as tea factories, silk factories, and other businesses. The trip will last eight days and Wilson and the group leaves Vancouver on Oct. 7. “I’m pretty excited,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to experiencing the history of it. I love seeing the history such as seeing the Great Wall. Just seeing the work that was put into it for instance.” Wilson is also hoping to make some business connections. He is looking at promoting Grand Forks and is planning to bring plenty of swag (city merchandise) to give away.

Over the Top!!

The event “Over the Top” took place at GFSS on Thursday, September 26th. Six teams of four students each participated in this event and the rest of the student body was out supporting them. It is a triathlon-type event which includes a 6 length swim, a 2km run and a 5km bicycle ride. To finish it off, each participant climbed over the goal posts of the GFSS soccer field with their teammates. The school also held a back-toschool barbeque during this event to welcome the grade eights as well as returning students. Those who were not out supporting the athletes were helping prepare hot dogs and snacks for the rest of the school. This event demonstrated the great school spirit GFSS students and staff have. The athletes taking part in this event proved to have amazing determination. Some teams became very competitive as they raced to the finish line. The team that finished the entire course with the best time were the Hawks with a time of 22:42. This team consisted of Josh Hammett, Kolby Horne, Alexei McGill and Bryden Thomas. Good job boys! To celebrate, they joined the rest of the school for hot dogs and creamsicles. All of the students that participated in this event did a great job. Whether they were in it to win or simply to have fun, it was evident that everyone was trying their hardest as they worked together as a team. This was an exciting and fun event for both the participants and spectators at GFSS and we hope to continue to inspire this kind of attitude towards the rest of the school year! HOWL ON!

Stuck on Silence

“Many students tend to seek out quiet solitude when they are having difficulty thinking” SIMONE GENTRY As students we are asked to come up with what feels like an infinite number of original and creative ideas. It can be pretty difficult and feels nearly impossible sometimes. A team of researchers at the University of Illinois, led by Ravi Mehta, conducted a study into the effects of background noise on human creativity. They found that a moderate amount of noise was the most conducive with a helpful boost in creative thinking. Many students tend to seek out quiet solitude when they are having difficulty thinking. This may seem to help, but it is actually rather counterproductive; instead, try going to a local coffee shop or online to for your own thunderstorm or for a personalized coffee shop sound track. According to Ravi Mehta, 70 decibels is the perfect noise level for “distracted focus”. Noise in the background should be just distracting enough

GFSS student Rubee Antonelli likes to listen to music when she studies for your mind to wander without it being too overwhelming, which in turn will stimulate your creative thinking skills. So next time you’re having trouble thinking of an original idea, turn up the noise and let the ideas flow. Good luck!

secret concert in the bathroom? Is everybody in line in the bathroom trying to… well, you know the Miley Cyrus lyric. No, nothing exciting or scandalous is taking place; just a queue of students spending their lunch hour waiting to get into the only easily accessible washroom in school. The upstairs boys and girls washrooms are now closed due to funding cutbacks. This means class time is being wasted when students in upstairs classes must wander through the hallways to get to the washrooms. If a student chooses to wait until lunchtime or snack break, they may end up late for class anyways having to wait in long lines. With the increased use because of limited availability, the downstairs washrooms get dirtier quicker.

These conditions are less than preferable for GFSS students, so why must they endure them? Their choice is the result of actions from a higher power. Has God himself condemned GFSS students to not having decent bathrooms? No, but the government has. Due to funding cuts, a janitorial position was eliminated and therefore, the amount of space having to be cleaned was reduced as well. Originally there was talk of blocking the entire hallway with a wall but for now the two bathrooms and several classrooms along the upstairs hallway are closed. Government cutbacks aren’t just inconveniences that schools can easily adapt around; they affect the students and their educational experiences.

Boundary climate change heats up workshop PAT KELLY

Boundary Creek Times

“We have options, but past is not one of them,” was a quote on one of the slides presented last at last week’s forum on the effects of climate change in the Boundary. There were nearly 40 people in attendance at the forum, Entitled Flood, Fire and Famine: Forum on Building Resilience to Global Climate. The keynote speaker was Greg Utzig, a conservation ecologist and land use planning consultant based in Nelson. He has 35 years experience in environmental impact assessment, watershed analysis and a wide range of activities related to forest management and biodiversity protection. Utzig said weather records show we are experiencing less cold weather, while seeing more hot weather and more record hot weather. Looking at European climate records that date back over 500 years confirms this trend. “Their data show the five coldest years all occurred before 1900, and the five warmest years have all occurred since 2000,” he said. Examples of climatic extremes are heat waves, drought, high intensity rainstorms and flooding, windstorms and tornadoes, lightning storms, hail storms, ice storms, and early spring heat/late frost combinations. Utzig speculated that one of the mechanisms driving the climate change is modifications to the jet stream resulting in weather systems stalling in place. The result is, instead of having two or three days of hot dry weather you have 10 days of hot dry weather. Or, as happened earlier this year in the Alberta flooding, you get longer periods of intense rain. “These extreme events are probably the things we are most concerned about. There are ongoing things that are more gradual but the increase in extreme events we need to start planning for.” Utzig brought slides aggregating the projections of several attempts to model future climate trends. “All models agree on the pattern of change though they may vary in the amount of change. “We know summers are going to get


dryer and much hotter than they are,” said Utzig – calling this the important take-home message of his speech. “Most models predict an increase in precipitation in spring, winter, and fall – but they all suggest a decrease in summer precipitation.” Looking at other biogeoclimatic zones to try to see what is growing in a climate that is projected for the Boundary in the future suggests we will see an increase in grassland and a change in forest-types, loss of forest cover, changing habitats and consequent species loss. He also predicted an increase in fire frequency and intensity, insects, pathogens and other forest decline syndromes. We can anticipate less snow, with an increase of rain falling in winter instead of snow. River flows will consequently increase in winter months, but there will be reduced risk of flooding with lower spring peak flows. Summer and fall water levels in the rivers will be significantly reduced. There will be increasing irrigation demands, at the same time there will be decreased water availability. He suggested silviculture treatments could increase resilience and decrease interface fire risk, while at the same time providing wood waste that could be used to lessen demand for fossil fuels as a heating source. He cited the Fuels for Schools program now underway in the some states that encourages conversion of oil and gas furnaces to wood-burning heating systems. “We need to plan for change – rethink everything we are doing now,” he insisted. Actions Utzig identified that might ease the trend toward climate change are to stop burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), elimination of other GHG emissions, and energy conservation. Water conservation The next speaker was Graham Watt, coordinator of the Kettle River Management Plan, who referred to climate change as the “new normal.” He urged adoption of a culture of water conservation and suggested implementing laws and policies that restrict development in riparian areas while promoting healthy vegetation in buffer areas near rivers, streams and lakes.

“A really big topic is how can we increase resilience of shorelines and floodplains,” said Watt. RDKB Area D Rural Director Roly Russell was the next speaker. Russell holds a phD from Oregon State University. He is currently a farmer, researcher and involved in many local agriculturerelated initiatives. He asked forum participants to consider the role of climate change on growing food. He sees opportunities for changes in practices such as crop diversification, buffer areas, woodlands and water use; and he advocates planning and policy work toward an area agricultural plan, food system planning and consideration of climate change in OCP reviews. He also suggested discourse—education, facilitation of informed discussion that abhors rhetoric and those who would befog and confuse the issue. Christina Lake native Ryan Durand is a Registered Professional Biologist who currently works on vegetation inventory, mapping and classification projects throughout Western Canada and the arctic. “Since we are putting effort into trying to preserve what is there, restore what is there—if we understand what we have to begin with I think we would be a lot further ahead,” said Durand. The final speaker of the evening was Sandy Mark, community coordinator for Christina Lake, who took a look at climate change through an economic lens. She called for reform at the grassroots through structures such as the corporate social responsibility movement, socially responsible investment movement, cooperative movement, community economic development movement, and the social enterprise movement. Mark is helping guide Christina Lake as it develops the first Community Venture Capital Corporation in BC. Following the four speakers, attendees broke into discussion groups based on specific topics such as linking coops together, local solar power, food policy and planning, ecosystem inventory, irrigation, community planning, protection of the riparian, etc. Watt invites those interested in the subject of resilience to climate change to get in touch with him.

Regional Citizen’s group charts nurse practitioners A citizen’s committee exploring opportunities for nurse practitioners in the Kootenay Boundary has formed with a keen eye on coverage in rural parts. Fruitvale Coun. Larry Gray is one member sounding a voice for nurse practitioners, registered nurses with advanced training. He said the new group would like to see nurse practitioners covering for doctors in rural hospitals like Kaslo and Nakusp to help with patient care and ultimately to relieve some pressure on doctors. “It would be nice to see the ability for nurse practitioners to do some of the relief for doctors in hospitals, to take on maybe some home service work, to be able to supplement the programs in a way that’s a little bit more cost effective,” he added. “A quick look at the doctor’s average salary of $350,000 and a nurse practitioner is not nearly as expensive and provides not the same quality of care, but can provide some care and do some things that doctors don’t have to do.” A nurse practitioner can provide diagnosis, entry lev-

el treatment of common and chronic illness, referrals and follow-up and can even write prescriptions. They can order and interpret the results of relevant screening and diagnostic lab tests such as an ultrasound or mammography, initiate the care process, monitor health outcomes and work in collaboration with other health care professionals. B.C. is now the second province in Canada, behind Ontario, to give nurse practitioners admitting and discharging privileges. The ministry said the provincial government introduced nurse practitioners in 2005, as a way to improve primary health-care services, and this past May announced $22.5 million in funding to pay for 190 nurse practitioners over the next three years. In Trail/Castlegar there are four nurse practitioners and a fifth in the midst of recruitment, according to Linda Sawchebko, regional practice leader for Interior Health (IH). She supports a variety of projects, one being the introduction of nurse practitioners across the health authority. Though some hospitals in the Lower Mainland use nurse practitioners for doctor cover-

IN BRIEF Pushing to remove constraints An industry professional who attended a meeting last month between local sawmills and B.C.’s forests minister in Fruitvale says Steve Thomson understood their message, but made no promises. Bill Kestell, woodlands manager with Salmo’s Porcupine Lumber, attended along with representatives of other local members of the Interior Lumber Manufacturers’ Association, who are seeking to have constraints on their access to timber lifted. Kestell says Thomson appreciated their concerns but couldn’t offer any easy answers. “He doesn’t have the authority to get rid of the constraints. He said a lot of them are in legislation, and that’s not easy to change. So it’s up to all of us to put our heads together.” A ministry spokesman confirmed in an email: “While a full re-opening of the KootenayBoundary higher level plan is unlikely, Minister Thomson has asked staff to look at options to

age, she said such is not the case for IH which has up to 30 nurse practitioners who are most commonly working with family physicians or in clinics. “I think nurse practitioners provide one of the solutions to good access to primary care and as we know there’s many of our population who have complex needs and one of the real benefits of a nurse practitioner is they are on a salary so they can spend a little bit more time with patients and really try to work with patients and their families around a comprehensive care plan,” she said. “In our experience in all of the clinics in the Greater Trail area and Castlegar, having a nurse practitioner added to the practice has resulted in many more patients being able to access primary care and has not had, from our experience, any impact on physicians.” The round-table discussion at the committee level sounds much different when looking at the entire region, indicated Gray. He said in rural parts like Kaslo and Nakusp, doctors are reluctant to “sign off” for a nurse practitioner, when they actually cut into their patient list, or in other words pay. The committee will meet next month for the second time.

address timber supply constraints and opportunities.” Thomson’s low key visit to the area in mid-August included stops in Grand Forks, Castlegar, Fruitvale, and Salmo and the operations of Zellstoff Celgar, Kalesnikoff Lumber, Atco, and Porcupine.

Medical pot mayhem brewing Lower Mainland mayors are predicting disaster when Ottawa cancels medical marijuana growing licences in thousands of B.C. homes next spring in favour of new commercial producers. They warned federal officials at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention Tuesday that the transition—without any teeth to enforce closure and cleanup of the soon-to-be-illegal home grows—will push them further into the grip of organized crime and leave cities with a legacy of contaminated houses. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said the federal government has a moral obligation to help ensure medical pot grow houses are made safe so buyers don’t unsuspectingly move their families and children into homes with serious mould problems.

Scared Silly...

Giving kids a StrongStart in life LEDA LEANDER

Boundary Family and Individual Services Society

After a beautiful summer, the back to school buzz is definitely in the air. Children, parents and teachers are excited for the new school year and all of the fun and learning it will bring. In most schools, the learning begins well before the child turns five and enrolled in a kindergarten program. The StrongStart BC program is FREE and offered in each elementary school throughout the Boundary region from Christina Lake to Beaverdell. Children, birth to age five, accompanied by their parent or caregiver have an opportunity to interactively play in a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate environment. A skilled early childhood educator provides many activities that reflect children’s interests. Within a three-hour session, there are opportunities for exploratory play, creative play with materials such as paint and glue, educator-led group time, shared book time and a healthy snack. The elementary schools also offer their gym and library which helps strengthen the school and community connection. The educator regularly updates a parent/caregiver information board and regularly invites service providers to discuss additional programs and services that are available to young children and families in the Boundary communities. Early childhood is magical and a period of time in a human’s life that goes by very quickly. The early experiences children are exposed to have lifelong effects on their growth and development, along with their success in school, community and life. Early brain development research underscores the importance of loving and positive early childhood experiences and the child’s capacity for subsequent learning. Early experiences are important for a child’s development, but even more vital are the relationships they form. Early bonds have a tremendous impact that continues throughout life.

It’s important for parents/caregivers to create a secure base for their children to explore the world around them and be responsive to their needs. In addition, StrongStart is a safe place for children to develop their social/emotional skills. Children learn how to make friends and be in the company of others. They learn important problem solving skills, the ability to share, follow rules and wait patiently. They learn how to care for a friend who has been hurt, show their anger in a healthy way and resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner. StrongStart programs also allow for parents and caregivers to meet new friends and develop relationships with each other. Raising children is important work that requires patience and energy (it does not need to be done in isolation). While the StrongStart program is funded by the Ministry of Education, School District 51 believes in community partnerships and has contracted with Boundary Family and Individual Services Society (BFISS) to deliver the program in the elementary schools. In addition to StrongStart, BFISS offers other early learning and intervention programs and services that provide countless benefits to children and families. Pregnant and post partum moms attend a weekly group to learn about raising their child, nutrition, the best breast feeding techniques and self-care. Other parents may be interested in knowing where their child is at in terms of development and may wish to have their child screened. Many of the parent/caregiver education programs that are offered provide child care, transportation and try to remove as many barriers as possible for parents/caregivers to attend. A program specifically just for dads and their children is also offered. BFISS’s mission statement reads, “We build partnerships with families and community by delivering services which enrich lives and shape our future.” Drop in and visit a StrongStart Family Centre today.

Join the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy and Black Press to promote, celebrate and support literacy initiatives in your community. The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is respected locally and beyond for its leadership in community-based literacy programs, but this success could not have been possible without the partnerships that exist across the region. Partnerships are essential to the work CBAL does and the most effective have been a result of a few key ingredients. First, an issue or challenge drives communities to seek solutions and participation from traditional and non-traditional partners. Second, a working relationship based on mutual respect, collaboration and open communication must be established among partners. Third, the acknowledgement of a shared goal

and the steps to achieve that goal must be identified. These ingredients become the beliefs and values of the partnership and create a forward path to change. Across the region, partnerships are working to support literacy initiatives. Regionally, CBAL partners with Selkirk College, College of the Rockies, Okanagan College and College of New Caledonia to support adult literacy initiatives. As a result, more adults are able to participate in learning opportunities in non-traditional settings. These programs support the development of parenting, life, workplace and academic skills. Locally, CBAL programs are partnering daily to deliver programs. Not only does CBAL partner with colleges, but also partners with school districts, libraries and other community organizations. Visit online to see what is happening in your community. One of the greatest partnerships that have developed from the communities is the community literacy planning committee. These committees focus on identifying challenges and issues concerning literacy, share resources and information and focus efforts on creating a healthy learning community. These committees demonstrate that working together is essential in achieving what one cannot do alone. You can make a difference in your local community. Participate in the Reach a Reader campaign by purchasing a paper on Oct. 9, volunteering to sell papers, or simply spreading the word as a campaign champion.

Grand Forks Gazette

The Grand Forks Border Bruins went 1-1-1 on a busy weekend that saw them play three games in three days. The Bears beat Spokane 5-2 Sunday, lost 5-1 in Nelson Saturday, and tied Columbia Valley 3-3 at home Friday. “We played pretty well,” said head coach Nick Deschenes. “Our biggest challenge was Nelson, of course. It was good to play them and see where we match up and for our players to see where they might ascribe to be.” The Nelson Leafs, who are a perfect 5-0 so far this year, are hosting the Cyclone Taylor Cup this season and have loaded up with many veterans looking for a shot at the provincial Junior B title. “If you look at their line-up, they’re almost a year or two older than us,” said Deschenes. “It’s almost like a bantam team playing a midget team. I was okay with our response. We got better as the game went on. I think it just gives us more fuel.” Bruins 3, Rockies 3 On Friday, the Bruins tied Columbia Valley 3-3 after blowing a two goal third period lead. A pair of third period shorthanded goals from Ryan Henderson enabled the Columbia Valley Rockies to steal a point on the road, forcing a 3-3 tie at Grand Forks Arena. “I can take responsibility for that,” said Deschenes. “It was maybe a lack of coaching on my end. It reiterates that a two-goal lead is something that needs to be protected a bit more. We kind of opened ourselves up

to their aggressive penalty kill. We knew that going in.” The Border Bruins led for most of the game behind the continued strong play of veterans Jackson Purvis and Connor Gross. After a scoreless first period, Purvis opened up the scoring with a power play marker at 14:58 of the second, assisted by Gross and Dakota Kittle. Bradley Pulombo tied the game for Columbia Valley at 1-1 a short time later. Cam McLellan gave GF a 2-1 lead with 2:22 left in the second with another Bruins’ power play marker, assisted by Gross and Kittle. Purvis’ second goal of the game gave the Bruins a commanding 3-1 lead at 11:31 of the third period. The teams played two overtime periods to no avail and settled for the tie. Dominic Stadnyk was in goal for GF and stopped 31 of 34 shots. Leafs 5, Bruins 1 On Saturday in Nelson, the Bears were blown out 5-1 by the undefeated Leafs, who were led by a hat-trick from Travis Wellman. Purvis scored the lone goal for GF midway through the third period. Bruins 5, Braves 2 Sunday at GFA, the Bruins got their groove back, beating Spokane for the third time this year, 5-2. Purvis and Lincoln Lane scored two goals each for the Bruins, while Gross added a single. Stadnyk was solid between the pipes stopping 43 of 45 Spokane shots. The Braves outshot the Bruins 45-24. “This was the first time for a lot of players to play three

games in two and a half days,” said Deschenes. “It’s a real mental challenge. You have to get up and compete. I thought we did an okay job. We could’ve cleaned up our play a big more and were a little sloppy at times, but it was a big win.” Bruins notes • The Bruins have only one game this weekend, a Friday night battle in Summerland against the Steam. • Grand Forks is currently in third place in the Neil Murdoch division with a 4-3-1-0 record, one point ahead of Castlegar. • Purvis and Gross continue to both punish the opposition offensively. Purvis is in first place in the KIJHL with nine goals and 10 assists for 19 points in nine games. Gross is second with five goals and 13 assists for 18 points in nine games.

GFSS boys soccer takes step up STAFF

Grand Forks Secondary School held a fourcategory timed event called Over The Top last Thursday. There were several teams of students, teachers and even a pair of fire fighter teams from Grand Forks Fire Rescue involved. The teams each had a member do a swim, run or bike ride, before all four members had to work together to get each team member over the top of the soccer goal posts.

The development of the Grand Forks Secondary School senior boys soccer team took a step forward in Nakusp last weekend as the club continued to develop their offensive attack and defensive strategy. For the games against the two strongest teams in the Nakusp tournament GFSS defended well but couldn’t control the sustained attack from Nakusp and Burns Lake, said head coach Mike Phelan. In the game versus Boundary Central, one defensive mistake caused a goal and the Grand Forks side could not even up the score even though they controlled play for most of the game. Their final game of the tournament was against a skilled team from Logan Lake. Once again, they controlled the play, scoring first to gain a 1-0 lead. In the second half, Logan Lake tied the score forcing the game to be decided by penalty shots. Inaccurate shooting during the shoot out

NoP Maclean

It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mom, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt. Marge was born in Vancouver, BC and passed away peacefully September 25, 2013 at Hardy View Lodge in Grand Forks, BC. On July 12, 1948, she was united in marriage to John (Dode) MacLean in Greenwood. Marge graduated from Kitsilano High School in 1945 and after a year of Normal School started her long teaching career in Greenwood, BC. As District Librarian for School District #13 Marge was instrumental in setting up the District Resource Centre and was known as the “story lady” in the various schools she visited. After many years at summer school she graduated with her teaching degree from UBC and her masters degree in education from Gonzaga ‘University, Spokane, WA. She was a great teacher, community leader, mentor and friend and was honoured to receive the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal in 2012 for her many years of dedicated service to the community. Marge’s passion was the history of Greenwood and conveying many stories to visitors at the Greenwood Museum. She was predeceased by her parents Jack & Adeline; and her husband John (Dode). Survived by her daughter Doreen, grandson Rob and great-grandson Devin; brother Harry Macdonald of West Vancouver, sisters Jessie Omand of Mexico and Marion Weekes of Port Coquitlam; brother & sister-in-law Ken & Eileen Maclean of Burnaby; numerous nieces and nephews. ‘Forever in our hearts.’ We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to all who cared for and visited with mom over the past several months. Cremation. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice. Grand Forks Funeral Home has care of arrangements.

Bill Harpur Well known and respected pioneer of Boundary Country passes. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bill Harpur, aged 85, on September 25, 2013, in Grand Forks Hospital. Bill was predeceased by his first wife, Margaret in 1999. Survived by devoted wife Carol, children Rick (Judy), Nancy (Mike), Wendy (Pete), Kelly (Karen) and stepsons Mike and Todd Rudolph and families. Also survived by sister Betty Mitchell, nine grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. From grade one to eight he went to the Myncaster School, which was 2 ½ miles west of the ranch. Grades nine to twelve he boarded in Oliver and graduated from the Oliver High school in June 1946. It was during these years that he became an Army Cadet, Boy Scout and a Militia Ranger. In the fall of 1947, Bill enrolled in a 2 year vocational course at the University of Saskatoon, taking agriculture and animal husbandry. The knowledge learned during that time was invaluable throughout his life and he was always on call to neighbours and friends in need of a helping hand. Bill was a pillar of the community, involved in many associations and committees. Dearest to his heart was the Rock Creek and Boundary Fair, of which he was a lifetime member. With his resonant voice and his public speaking ability, Bill was called upon to announce at many functions and horse shows. One of Bill’s most recent achievements was receiving the Governor General of Canada Award for community service in February, 2013. Many special thanks and praise to all the Doctors, nurses, specialists and palliative team in the Interior Health Region who have cared for Bill over the last five years. At Bill’s request there will be no funeral service. Those wishing to make a donation in his name, can do so to the BC Cancer Foundation, the Palliative Care Unit at the Grand Forks Hospital or a charity of their choice.

Is it mushroom picking time? Photographer Herb Noseworthy did not know what kind of mushroom this was but it grew over night to a span of about eight inches across. “Or maybe this is where the elves live?” said Noseworthy. “Could be the reason for all the banging I heard last night while they were working.”

He left at an early age to begin his trucking career, working in various locations throughout the province. There wasn’t a place in BC that Max didn’t run into someone he knew. He met his wife Kathy in Grand Forks and, shortly after, followed her to Kamloops where she was teaching. They were married August 16th, 1975 and recently celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary. Max was a long time Arrow employee. In the early nineties, Max ventured out to begin his own trucking business. With a cell phone permanently attached to his ear, he ran two companies. He was an employer who respected and cared for his employees. Max was an amazing father who said his greatest gift was the birth of his daughter, Lindsay. It was Max’s pleasure to watch his daughter grow into a successful and mature young lady. Max enjoyed golfing and socializing with his many great friends at local watering holes. He loved cooking Russian food and spent many enjoyable hours in his garden. Travelling with his family was a highlight, and he especially loved his times in Jamaica. He was a dedicated and hard worker who earned all of his successes in life. Max passed away suddenly on September 28th, after a very brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and all whose lives he touched. A Celebration of Life will take place at 2:00pm on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel. The family wishes to extend thanks to Dr. Wiltshire, palliative/hospice care, first responders, family friends and business associates and a special thank you to Gloria Keogh for all her love and support. In lieu of flowers, donations in Max’s name may be made to the Kamloops SPCA or Kamloops Food Bank. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home – 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from

Jack Goddard remembered as city father STAFF

Grand Forks Gazette

The city lost one of its founding fathers when Jack Goddard passed away on Sept. 13. The former four-term mayor of Grand Forks was instrumental in helping build the infrastructure and the culture of the city. Originally from Cabri, Sask., Jack moved to Grand Forks in the 1940s, working as a customs and immigration officer from 1955 to 1983. Political life came calling in 1960 when Jack won his first of three consecutive two-year terms as alderman. He followed that up with four terms as mayor, stepping down in 1973. While in office Jack made good on his time as mayor. He was successful in relocating and improving the Grand Forks Airport. As well, Jack was instrumental in the construction and completion of the new Grand Forks Arena. He considered it one of his proudest moments. Jack’s success continued with the construction and opening of the Boundary Mall, after the conjunction and approval of the CPR on the site. One of his lasting legacies was the organization Jack put in place with minor baseball, as he was instrumental in organizing the initial birth of Babe Ruth Baseball in Grand Forks. One of Jack’s personal highlights was meeting with her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth. Jack Goddard was predeceased by his wife Pauline. He passed away peacefully on Sept. 12 at the age of 93. He is survived by his sister Dorothy, daughters Karen Ladd and Barbara Parenteau, and sons Jack and Bill, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
