Coachman residents shocked by eviction plans CLAIRE PARADIS Arrow Lakes News

Nakusp Coachman Campsite residents are upset that they may have to look for a new home for their mobile homes in the near future. Shawna Lagore and her husband were preparing to build a fence near their home at the Coachman Campsite on Monday, Sept. 23 when they were told by their new landlord they would be receiving eviction notices in the near future. The Lagores, who had just bought their home last year, were shocked by the news. “It’s been very stressful,” said Shawna Lagore, who has been researching options in response to the news. In a written statement to the Arrow Lakes News, the current owners of the Coachman Campground Susan and Ed Kostuch said they have verbally told some of their current tenants of their future plans for the property, but they have not served a notice to end tenancy to anyone. The notice was given in response to the Lagores’ request to spend time and money developing the lot they rent from the Kostuchs. “For clarification purposes, we have never stated or otherwise indicated to anyone that the current or previous owners have applied for rezoning or have done anything deceitful or illegal,” read the Kostuchs’ statement. “There was never any requirement at the time

of purchase for the previous owners to inform the tenants of any change of use to the property and we never stated to anyone at any time that this had been done or was supposed to have been done.” According to the Manufactured Home Park Tenancy Act, the landlord must pay tenants actual moving costs up to $25,000. That is, if the building can be moved at all. Many mobile homes have spent so much time where they are, they’re not as mobile as they used to be. Not only that, but it can be difficult to find a pad appropriate for your home, let alone one that’s available in Nakusp. According to the Act, if the building can’t be moved or a suitable site within 50 kilometres can’t be found, the landlord must pay the home’s fair market value. But the value of mobile homes (also known as manufactured homes) is more than just the building. Mobile homes are a good form of affordable housing, Tom Durning from the Tenant Resource and Advisory in B.C. told the Arrow Lakes News, one that municipalities can work to keep in the community. “The municipality has a lot of power,” Durning stated. “It’s up to them to decide if they want to keep affordable housing in the community. There’s lots they can do.” Policies created in other B.C. municipalities acknowledge the home parks as important sources of affordable housing that allow families and residents of dif-

ferent ages and incomes to live in the community. And what will Nakusp do? Village CAO Linda Tynan said it’s too preliminary to speak about at the moment, but she said it would be a question for council as to what the right thing to do would be. At the moment the Coachman Campsite is zoned for highway commercial use, so neither campground nor mobile park are covered, and right now it’s considered as “legally non-conforming use.” Council could refuse to rezone it to allow a larger campsite, said Tynan, but what the property owners decide to do with their business is up to them. Shawna Lagore will be bringing the issue to council on Oct. 15, and said she is looking for a fair solution, a policy that will be good for both sides. “We’re looking for policies to be in place that treat landowners and homeowners equally,” she said, noting that this is only the first case of mobile home park redevelopment and likely not the last. “[The owners] should pay the costs, otherwise it will be the community that does,” she added, pointing out that the effects of evictions like this will affect the community at large. School enrolments, local businesses, lending institutions, and social welfare programs are all affected by a decrease in affordable housing, said Lagore. The decision to develop the property is not being taken lightly, said the

Kostuch’s statement, “as it has effects on many, including our own investment in our family-run business’s future. We are invested in this community as a whole, and are intent on working with those involved in a co-operative and supportive manner throughout this process.”

Village on track to purchase Cedar Chalets at Nakusp Hot Springs CLAIRE PARADIS Arrow Lakes News

The Village of Nakusp is in negotiations to purchase the Cedar Chalets located next to the Nakusp Hot Springs, CAO Linda Tynan announced in a press release on Sept. 25. The village has signed a memorandum of understanding with the owners of the Cedar Chalets, and council will borrow the money for the purchase, the amount of which will be reported to council postdeal. According to financial pro-

jections, the debt will be paid back within five years of operating. “Council had a strategic session with the hot springs looking into buying the chalets,” Tynan told the Arrow Lakes News. “Almost all the reports from past consultants have said it would be a good idea.” After the strategic session, the village approached the current owner about buying the chalets. “It was the right timing,” said Tynan, who also stated that the village has increased marketing efforts over the past year in response to council’s recognition of

the importance of a vital, successful hot springs to the economy of the Village of Nakusp. In a release to the media, the village portrayed the opportunity to purchase and operate the Cedar Chalets as timely: “with the completion of the Kuskanax Creek Footbridge, the village has an opportunity to create an exciting marketing package which will include both accommodation and hot springs passes.” The CAO also noted that having the Cedar Chalets as a private business run separately from the

Nakusp Hot Springs has been a hindrance to finding a partner. When the deal goes through, the first order of business will be replacing the roofs on the distinctive A-frame cabins, although it likely won’t happen this year. The interiors of the cabins will also experience some upgrading as well. How the chalets would be run by the village has not yet been determined, although Tynan said the management of the Nakusp Hot Springs is already a full-time job. The Cedar Chalets were built in 1973 by the Wethal family and

since that time the family has leased the land from the village and operated the Chalets. “Our family is very pleased that the Nakusp Hot Springs and the Cedar Chalets will be operated together,” said Connie Wethal, current operator of the Cedar Chalets. “This will be a great fit for both businesses. Over the years many of our guests have been surprised that we are not combined. This is a great marketing opportunity and will only benefit both of businesses and the Village of Nakusp.”

Buy a paper for Reach a Reader and fund local literacy By CBAL

Special to the Arrow Lakes News

On October 9 buy your local newspaper from a volunteer on the street. Your donation goes directly to a literacy program in your community. 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 our 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 we do 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 nontraditional 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 we partner with school districts, libraries and other community organizations. Nakusp and area’s CBAL offers ESL classes for those whose first language is not English, basic computer classes for adults of all ages, Mother Goose for parents and infants where they learn songs and rhymes, Strong Start, Pitter Patter Playgroup, tutoring, as well as maintaining the CAP site. Both CBAL community-based programming and college continuing education courses provide opportunities to learn in non-formal ways. That is, although there are recognized learning outcomes, the learning process is generally more relaxed and does not result in a diploma or degree. A silversmithing course at the local college or a senior’s computer program offered by CBAL are both examples of non-formal learning. CBAL’s informal learning programs provide experiential learning opportunities and are designed to be responsive to the needs of those who participate. They do not result in formal credits and are led by someone who is acting as a facilitator of learning.

UBCM 2013: discussion, awards and resolutions affecting Nakusp

Karen Hamling Mayor’s Report The 2013 Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) convention was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre with approximately 2,000 delegates attending the five-day conference. From my perspective, the purpose of attending the convention is to: attend educational sessions that provide us with information and tools to help us with decision making for our communities; address issues facing municipalities and regional districts and work on resolutions requesting the provincial government to address changes to legislation and our community environment (the recycling issue is an example); meet with ministers to address issues within our communities. An added plus is meeting with other municipal and regional politicians and discussing their current issues and possible solutions. Tuesday morning I attended a meeting with Minister Bill Bennett, representatives from CBT and regional districts committee members where we had a discussion on the membership and make up of the board appointees from the regional districts. It was a good meeting and will be helpful to both the CBT board and the regional district boards. The smalltalk forum for small communities was held on Tuesday. Several success stories from various community programs were highlighted along with some good discussion topics. The gas tax funding and infrastructure funding were discussed and supported by the members. Without these funds, we would not be able to provide the services and infrastructure upgrades without going to the tax payer for the full amount. So, important programs to support. The BC Ambulance service situation in small, remote communities was also discussed as it is felt that the system as it now no longer functions for our areas and will become increasingly stressed.

Minister of Community, Sport & Cultural Development Coralee Oakes addressed the smalltalk forum. She is from a small rural community and is aware of the issues. The minister recognizes that small communities have significant impact on the province and has promised to be our champion. Council met with BC Hydro’s Cam Matheson, Vice-President of Transmission & Distribution and discussed reliability of power in Nakusp. A new substation is being planned for Nakusp and we wanted to ensure that we would have more reliable power to our communities. We have one service line in and in order to have more reliable power, we need to have two lines. Apparently this is expensive and not planned for our area. I find this curious since the power generated for a good portion of the province comes from our area and why would BC Hydro not be looking at providing us with the best possible scenario. We will be considering a motion to send a letter requesting two lines in their future upgrades. We also discussed the importance of improved communications with BC Hydro. Wednesday, the trade fair opened and there were a lot of interesting booths with products and services for communities to consider. It’s a good place to learn about new products and services and to touch base with people who can work with us in future endeavours. The Annual General Meeting took placed on Wednesday as well as our association lunches and presentations. An exciting moment for Nakusp was when we won a Wood First Champion award for the Kuskanax Footbridge. This is the second time we have won this award. I attended a meeting with the Regional District to discuss Technology – broad band needs for our rural communities with the Minister Andrew Wilkinson. My final meeting that day was with Minister Bill Bennett. The Columbia Basin Local Governments Committee presented Minister Bennett with the findings from the public meetings along with recommendations to cabinet. The Minister is fully aware of the issues facing our communities and is in support of our efforts. Thursday Council met with Shirley Bond (Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour) and Minister Naomi Yamamoto (Minister of State

for Tourism and Small Business). We explained the importance of the Nakusp Hot Springs and provision of jobs and training in our community. We requested further work with the ministry to continue to explore ideas and opportunities for Nakusp. We stressed the need for support in the provincial skills training for our area. Minister Bond was aware of the work that our community has been doing and congratulated us for being proactive with Opportunities BC and the various programs the ministry is supporting. Nakusp was the feature for Sept. on the Opportunities BC website. A highlight of the convention was keynote speaker Stephen Lewis who talked about his personal experiences in Africa and the horrors of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, as well as global efforts to address sexual violence. Lewis linked his work in the international community with the work of B.C.’s local elected officials and spoke directly to a number of themes that were being addressed in this year’s resolutions. Council also met with Lawrence Pillon, Senior Manager of Community Relations to dis-

cuss communication between BC Hydro and the Village and the need for improvement. The resolution sessions covered two days and were – at times – quite lively. I didn’t have the opportunity to attend the session on Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations but understand that it was quite lively with concern being voiced on the responsibility gap for inspection and remediation of residences used for marijuana cultivation under regulations that will continue until next spring. A resolution requesting the provincial government to develop a separate program to reimburse fire departments that respond to highway incidents was endorsed. UBCM delegates, unanimously passed an amended version of special resolution SR-1 Packaging & Printed Paper Product Stewardship, requesting an additional 90 days for local governments to properly clarify and consider Multi-Material BC’s financial incentive and service offer. Three other resolutions that affect our area were endorsed: request that the provincial gov-

ernment ensure that any proposed change in the level of health services available to any community must first be the subject of consultation between the health authority and local health providers, residents of the affected community and the relevant local governments. The second is concerning air ambulance services – UBCM is to meet with the provincial government to develop air ambulance services that work for the whole province. The third is the term for council elections be changed to fouryear terms and the delegates would like to see this occur with the 2014 elections. There was a 60 per cent endorsement. Friday morning, we met with Minister Coralee Oakes, where we had the opportunity to thank the province for the Community Recreation grant that the Village of Nakusp received to build the Kuskanax Creek Footbridge and the jobs that these projects provide for our community. We also explained the importance of grants to small communities as well as the need for support for Jobs, skills and training.

Edgewood boil water notice rescinded Contributed by RDCK

The Regional District Central Kootenay (RDCK) removed the boil water notice for water users on the Edgewood Water System on Sept. 23.

As a precautionary measure, due to increased turbidity levels, a boil water notice for Edgewood water users was issued on June 4. Recent testing shows that the current water quality is good and within the Federal Guidelines for Drinking Water

Quality. The RDCK appreciates your cooperation and patience during the boil water notice. If you have any questions please contact the RDCK at 250-352-6665 or go to the website at www. rdck.bc.ca.

op/ed

NES students get ready to hike the new Jackrabbit Trail up at Wensley Creek on Friday, Sept. 27. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

The Jackrabbit Trail was officially opened and hiked by grade three and five students on Friday, Sept. 27. The short but not small group made their way in the rain to the cross-country ski club warming hut, checking out the new features that have been installed along the way. The new trail, developed in partnership between NACFOR and the Nakusp and Area Trails Society, has new interpretive signage made

by Lloyd Dennis and Osprey Signs throughout the hike, informing hikers about different tree species, local wildlife and history of the area. An information kiosk built by NSS wood teacher Ken Barisoff and Wulf Mense of Nakusp ACTS! is also on site. Access to this trail can be found at the Wensley Creek ski trail parking lot and from Wilson Lake Road. New brochures with a map and information about the trail can be found at the trailhead and the Tourist Information Office in Nakusp.

Conservative government shows little interest in environmental protection

Ramp responsibilities as clear as? Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

In response to a request for clarity about BC Hydro’s responsibilities in regards to the Arrow Lakes boat launch, the Comptroller of Water Rights office had this to say: “The requirement for boat ramp access for the Arrow Lakes Reservoir is the summer recreation period.

In 2007 a water use plan was developed for the Columbia River system. The water use plan objective chosen for recreational access was to maintain higher reservoir elevations for the summer recreational period of May 24 to September 30, with lower elevations during that period being acceptable with the inclusion of ramp upgrades/extensions.”

Alex Atamanenko BC Southern Interior MP In 2009 the Conservative government’s omnibus budget bill gutted the Environmental Assessment Act to reduce the number and types of development projects whose approvals would be subject to an environmental assessment. Conservative budget bills C-38 and C-45 were a continuation of the dismantling of Canada’s long established environmental laws.  The stealth and ruthlessness by which the Conservative government is abandoning its responsibilities on the environment sends a very clear message – the health and safety of land, water, and air or of Canadian citizens are not a priority.  As far as this government is concerned, no pesky rules are going to get in the way of enabling big business to exploit the common wealth of our nonrenewable mineral and hydrocarbon resources. Even more worrying is the increasing level of power the Conservatives have steadily been transferring to the Minister to make final decisions on projects such as pipelines irrespective of any environmental assessment.    Enacted in 1882, the Navigable Waters Protection Act (NWPA)

was designed to protect the rights of Canadians to navigate waterways without interference from bridges, dams, pipelines, logging operations, and other developments.  By replacing the NWPA with the Navigation Protection Act (NPA), Bill C-45 erases any connection between navigation and the environment. As Ecojustice stated in its thorough review, “the law will no longer protect navigable waters – it will only protect navigation.” Under the new Act, proponents of industrial and infrastructure projects may have unfettered access to disrupt and impact waterways with little regard for environmental or navigation rights.  By dismantling the NWPA, the federal government has abandoned jurisdiction over most water bodies. Just 97 lakes and 62 rivers now retain some protection. Interestingly, of the 97 lakes retaining some protection, 87 per cent are in Conservative held ridings. In the BC Southern Interior, the Okanagan, Slocan, Kettle and Grandby rivers are no longer protected and neither are lakes such as Osoyoos, Christina, or Nancy Green. According to Amnesty International, the government’s changes to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, the Fisheries Act, the Navigable Waters Protection Act and Safe Drinking Water for First Nations Act have profound implications for the rights of indigenous peoples as set out in treaties, affirmed in the constitution, and protected by international human rights standards. The Conservative government’s abandonment of federal

jurisdiction over most water bodies also means that: · Important water bodies that provide safe drinking water, support fish resources, enable navigation for subsistence or recreation purposes, or have heritage values have little protection from development. ·Canada is now at risk as we may be unable to fulfill our international obligations under the Boundary Waters Treaty. ·Opportunities for public participation in decisions about water bodies are severely diminished and will in most cases, be at the discretion of the Minister. A ‘secret’ May 2011 Environment Canada presentation on contamination of the Athabasca River released through access to information legislation, revealed significant harm being done to the ecosystem from tar sands operations.  Highlighted were threats to wildlife and downstream communities from high levels of hydrocarbons and heavy metals, decreasing water levels and river flow, harm to fish, and alarmingly high levels of greenhouse gas emissions which the report estimated will rise 900 per cent by 2020 from 1990 levels.  Despite being made aware of the level of ecosystem destruction by this report the Conservative government still promotes the tar sands industry as a responsible and sustainable resource development. I shudder to think what they will say and do now that the laws which provided at least some protection over waterways for the common interest have effectively been neutered.

Hands are tied, forests minister tells Kootenay mills greg nesteroff Black Press

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. “I thought it was a very positive meeting,” says Bill Kestell, woodlands manager with Salmo’s Porcupine Lumber. “He was very down to earth and easy to talk to and

made some good points. I’ve heard others felt the same way.” Kestell 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 reopening of the Kootenay-Boundary higher level plan is unlikely, Minister Thomson has asked staff to look at options to address timber supply constraints and opportunities.” Kestell was encouraged by the backing of local politicians at the meeting. “Their support meant an awful lot to industry members,” he said. “It’s half the battle.”

The lumber manufacturers approached the Regional District of Central Kootenay in July about setting up a meeting with the minister, but in the meantime scheduled one themselves and invited certain local politicians—who have since been criticized by others who fear broader community interests weren’t represented. The meeting with the minister lasted about an hour and a half. The industry group says its livelihood is at risk without easier

access to wood and land-base constraints forces them into domestic watersheds. Some critics, however, scoff at their request and suggest it would threaten protected areas. 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. Kalesnikoff and Atco didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Provinces press feds for training changes Tom Fletcher Black Press

The federal government’s new Canada Job Grant would leave lower-skilled workers and many small businesses behind, provincial employment ministers agree. B.C. Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training Minister Shirley Bond joined her provincial counterparts in Toronto to emphasize their worries that Ottawa’s new plan will take

money from an effective network of retraining programs designed to fit local needs. The Canada Job Grant is due to take effect in April, diverting millions in federal skills training funding to a three-way program that requires employers and provinces to match a $5,000 investment from an employer to upgrade a worker’s skills. The provinces issued a joint report pointing out that “vulnera-

ble clients” of provincial training programs don’t have jobs. With no employer to put up a share, they won’t qualify for the new program. “The federal government has provided no evidence that the proposal would help workers or employers,” the report states. “However, it would divert funding from existing provincial and territorial programs that are delivering good results.” Bond said federal Employment

Minister Jason Kenney has agreed to meet with provincial ministers to hear their concerns. She said small businesses have also raised the alarm that Ottawa’s plan doesn’t work for them. Provinces say full implementation of the Canada Job Grant would take $600 million a year out of current programs, particularly those for young people, disabled people, aboriginal people, recent immigrants, social assistance recipients,

long-term unemployed and older workers. Bond said one such B.C. program at risk is BladeRunners, which targets young aboriginal people. Service providers funded by BladeRunners include: • Ktunaxa Nation Council in Cranbrook, Kimberley and Creston • John Howard Societies in Kelowna and Victoria

Burton residents again told to boil water Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

The Regional District Central Kootenay (RDCK) is reissuing the boil water notice for users on the Burton Water System as coliforms found may be a health risk. Although the level of the bacteria found during recent sampling were low, the regional district is being cautious and recommending that people on the

Burton water system drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice. Water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. People on the water system could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained

treatment device. Owners of all public facilities must post a boil water notice at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the boil water notice. The RDCK is taking additional measures to reduce risk including: flushing the system, drain-

ing the reservoir, and adding temporary consumption level of chlorine to the water. Interior Health has been notified. The RDCK will advise public when conditions change or water quality has improved. A minor upgrade to the Burton water system is planned that will install a looping supply line to the reservoir. “At the moment water in and water out use the same line, so

there is the potential for some stale water to be in the reservoir,” Utility Services Manager Jason McDiarmid told the Arrow Lakes News. In a media release issued Sept. 27, the RDCK apologized for any inconvenience caused. For any questions, please contact the RDCK at 250-352-6665 or visit their website at www.rdck.bc.ca.

B.C. MLAs work on financial disclosure Tom Fletcher

Black Press

MLAs’ constituency assistants from across B.C. crowded into the idle B.C. legislative chamber Wednesday 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 legisla-

ture’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. Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan told the committee he is “absolutely in favour” of disclosing detailed information, but more time is needed, especially with 32 new MLAs elected in May. That means new constituency staff learning accounting procedures on the job, while also learning to handle dayto-day concerns of constituents, many of whom are “in distress,” he

Pigment of the imagination: Maye finds new ground

Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

In stone and paint, Barbara Maye has re-grounded herself in “Pigment.” And if life imitates art, or they at least run parallel, her life is also falling into balance. The artist made the move to Revelstoke recently,

In this show, she moved between ing and sculptural work at Studio Connexion. Not only has her life carving stone and then painting the become more grounded, like stone, forms and colours of her sculptures, but more balanced, like exhibiting in a solid mix of the very concrete and more than one medium: when I spoke the more abstract. Although the stone to Maye she had found a deep peace in is a very tangible, weighty medium, her decision to let go of the stress and the shapes carved into each piece are hustle of pushing for gallery shows abstract. And although the paintings and instead embrace the security of a are clearly of the carvings, their forms

and colours create canvasses of abstract images that stand on their own. Unlike previous shows, she has embraced a wider array of colours in her painting, something that progressed during the process. While initial paintings stick to more monochromatic palates, the colours open up as time went on, and in the final canvas she painted, there is a fantastic mixture of hues and textures that give a very different, joyous feeling to its stone portrait. “I’m not going to stop creating, but I’m not pursuing it like it’s all I’m doing,” Maye told the Arrow Lakes News, as this may be the last gallery show she’ll be mounting for a while. “I just want a little bit of stability in terms of income.” The artist welcomes a return to the regular nineto-five world as an opportunity to reconnect with everyday life, something she sees she’s had the privilege to be able to take a break from. Many artists struggle with the same thing, the balance between working to sustain day-to-day living and having the energy and inspiration to create. It’s a chance to seek a point of equilibrium and be “less obsessive,” said Maye. Still, she promises to continue to explore the connection between art and life, and makes no promises that there will be no shows. The multi-media-savvy artist is continuing to teach in Nakusp and Revelstoke, so keep your eyes peeled for her posters. “Pigment” is showing at Studio Connexion in Nakusp (203 5th Ave.) Sept. 27 to Oct. 12 with the opening reception held on Friday, Sept. 27 between 5-8 p.m.

Marilyn Boxwell Seniors helping seniors It was about ten years ago now, but I remember well the first time I came face to face with one of Nakusp’s finest musical artists whom I had the pleasure of dubbing the best lounge player I’d ever encountered. She hardly requires an formal introduction these days, but for those of us who are new to our community, I’m referring to the vastly talented local pianist Shirley Garvey. Her formal studies in classical music began at the tender age of five, and she has continued to keep abreast of the traditional as well as contemporary music trends throughout her life, citing the importance of her having had proper background training in order to provide order and meaning to her chosen field of musical expertise. Shirley is very much a sparkling enthusiast of easy listening sounds which tumble off the piano keyboard at a moment’s notice. “I love the songs I can put emotion into,” she remarked during a recent conversation I had with her on the subject of program selections. Not surprisingly, her favourite composers and their individual compositions are varied but include enchanting

More singers are almost always needed to keep the programs fresh and alive, and no special level of ability or previous experience are needed, Shirley pointed out. Everyone is welcome, and if not to directly participate by joining forces with the other singers on Wednesdays, then to simply relax and enjoy listening to them as part of an audience, over a freshly brewed cuppa.

This week in pictures: races, BBQ, sculpture and mmmm ... chocolate Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

You had to race this week to catch some of what was happening in Nakusp. Not only were there the regular standbys of the farmer’s market, but there was a new hiking trail

opened, an ATV ride, the dedication of a piece of beautiful and meaningful public art, free spicy hot chocolate, and, oh yeah, a soccer tournament. And if that’s not enough, there was Sufferfest going on too. It’s an embarrassment of riches around here.

Celebrate the Craft Council of BC’s 40th anniversary in the Basin Contributed by Natasha Smith, CBT

Columbia Basin residents are invited to participate in the Columbia Basin Craft Symposium to be held October 25 to 27 in Nelson. This event will focus on the professional development of contemporary craft artists with a variety of workshops, discussions and presentations by some of the most influential artists in the field of Craft today.  This weekend-long symposium will touch upon many aspects that contemporary craft faces today: creativity, sustainability, globalization, technology, and business issues such as marketing, pricing and social media. The symposium is an opportunity for Columbia Basin residents who are in a creative field to learn, share and get feedback from artists across the country who are visionaries

in their respective fields. There is also an opportunity to sign up for individual portfolio reviews and to have your work photographed by a professional photographer. The keynote speaker will be Greg Payce: artist, potter, and winner of the 2013 Saidye Bronfman Award (Canada’s foremost distinction for excellence in the fine crafts).  Greg has been making ceramics for over 35 years. He has exhibited and given numerous lectures, workshops, and presentations on his practice, both in Canada and internationally.   Registration for this event will open in early October and space is limited. Travel subsidies will be available for the weekend event of October 25-27 for residents of the Columbia Basin who live further away from Nelson.

Get connected at Selkirk

ABE teacher Andrea Kosling gives Selkirk student Shea Weighill her Apple raffle prize. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Kim Verigin, Athletic and Recreational Coordinator is also responsible for traveling to Selkirk College’s campuses and centres as part of the Get Connected program. Get Connected reaches out to students to welcome them to the college and connect them with services in the community. This year there were about 15 students and 30 people total, learning

about Selkirk’s services for students and taking part in draws for the table full of prizes. “I meet students I would never see,” said Verigin, who is based in Castlegar but is currently touring through campuses as well as centres, a new addition to Get Connected. And this isn’t the last time, either. “Next time I’d like to get more community resource tables with information about transit and community services available,” Verigin told the Arrow Lakes News. But it’s clear the coordinator, who coaches the Selkirk Saints hockey team, is psyched about athletics and would like to get people connecting through sports like curling, fishing, and more throughout the year. For now, it’s enough just to get people together and feeling welcome and connected. “For quite a few years people felt isolated out here,” said Verigin about remote centres like Nakusp, “more of this will bring them closer together.”

‘The Barber of Barkerville’ comes to Nakusp Oct. 6 Contributed by Marilyn Massey, ALAC

On Sunday, Oct. 6, Vancouver Opera is opening this season’s concert series with “The Barber Of Barkerville.” Imagine ‘Deadwood’ but with less swearing and more music. Vancouver Opera is one of the largest opera touring programs of its kind in Canada. Started over 40 years ago, VOS (Vancouver Opera in Schools) maintains a tradition of professional opera performances in schools throughout B.C.  “The Barber of Barkerville” is a local version of Rossini’s comic masterpiece  ‘The Barber of Seville.’ Figaro, a crafty and mischievous barber, uses trickery and disguises to help Al, a love-struck young man, liberate the beautiful Rosie from the clutches

of the dastardly Innkeeper, Bart. This opera has been set in B.C.’s historic Barkerville during the exciting Gold Rush era.  Concert-goers will experience another rush during the show: the opera will be performed in the first half, and after intermission solos, duets and ensembles from various other operas will be presented. Come and join us on Sunday, October 6, at 2 p.m. in the Bonnington Arts Centre, doors will be open at 1:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the Bon March/Dollar Store until Saturday afternoon, then at the door on Sunday. This is the first concert in our Concert Series for this season, and if you still need to get your season tickets, please contact Marilyn Massey at 250-265-4087.

Sports don’t lie at legendary NSS soccer tourney ing its time has garnered recognition from other schools around the province. “There was a tournament this same weekend in Prince George [an hour’s drive away] but we decided we wanted to come [to Nakusp] instead,” said Patti Dube, the Burns Lake coach whose team travelled over 1,000 kilometres to compete in the Nakusp competition. Other guests of the tournament included teams from Creston, Golden, Midway, Grand Forks, Trail, Logan Lake, Invermere, Kimberley and newcomer Ashcroft. The senior soccer teams were divided into two pools of competition with a final crossover game to determine the winner of the tournament. Nakusp found themselves in a pool with some old rivals and eagerly hit the pitch at Zeleznik field on Friday morning to face off against Burns Lake. Coach Jay Gardner orchestrated his team as an adaptable unit that incorporated a reactive strategy, often changing player’s positions on the fly until the right combination of Cougar skill exploited their opponent’s weaknesses. Unfortunately this style of play takes time to be effective, and due to the trial and error, Nakusp found themselves on the wrong side of a 5-1 score. The completion of Nakusp’s first game answered their line-up questions and from the ashes of the loss emerged a Cougar tour-de-force that managed to net an astonishing 16 goals in their next three wining matches

By Ryan Willman, Athletic Dir.

Special to the Arrow Lakes News

“Sports are the truest measure of a person, they don’t lie,” Jay Gardner, the Nakusp Cougars Senior boys’ soccer coach, remarked as he and I watched the Nakusp junior boys battle through the rain and the mud early Saturday morning. Wet, injured and tired from showing off their moves at the school dance the night before, the junior boys soccer team was is the thick of competition during the annual Nakusp Invitational Soccer Tournament. Our home tournament has been a mainstay in the Kootenay region soccer ‘A’ schedule for 11 years, and dur-

Nakusp Secondary Junior and Senior players defied the weather to compete at their home tournament last weekend. Photo courtesy Jodi McLean against Logan Lake, Grand Forks and Midway. The slow start may have cost the Nakusp squad a chance to participate in the final, but the gravel in the guts of our hometown Cougars were clearly represented in the box scores on the tournament board. On the school field, the Nakusp junior squad found themselves divided into two teams due to a last minute cancellation. Coaches Dave Scambler and myself attempted to steer the teams though the rough

tournament play against formidable rivals Creston, Kimberley and Golden. The encouraging numbers of juniors that have committed themselves to Cougar soccer made the division of players possible and was remarked on wistfully by other coaches. In the face of declining enrolment and widespread student apathy, Nakusp continues to produce high numbers of competitive athletes willing to leave the warmth of their beds to take the pitch dur-

ing an early morning rain shower. Both junior teams played to a record of one win and two losses during the course of competition (not counting the shootout against each other) and missed out on the opportunity to participate in the battle for first place. The tournament trophies were hoisted by Trail, who edged out a shootout win during the seniors final against Burns Lake, and Creston, who battled a vicious junior final against the Kimberley

squad. The Nakusp community dug deep this weekend and collectively defied the cold, rainy weather by working together to make our home tournament a success. On that early Saturday morning I sipped my hot chocolate in the rain on a field of bustling action, watching a parade of players, lineswoman, parents and volunteers all coming together to make something amazing happen. Sports don’t lie.

Kaslo Sufferfest 2013 ran the gamut for racers. For three days there were bike and running races, including a denim bike race that gave points for style (hey, denim is the fabric of the Canadian tuxedo after all).
