Charting the new course of education School District 51’s new superintendent of schools, Kevin Argue, reveals his educational philosophy JIM HOLTZ

Grand Forks Gazette

If there is a thread that runs through the career of School District 51’s new superintendent, Kevin Argue, it is perhaps the idea that good teachers can have profound impacts on their students. It was Argue’s own experiences with good teachers growing up in Surrey that created his life-long interest in education, and it is that same experience that he would like to continue to foster in SD51 as superintendent. “I had so many fabulous teach-

ers, and they were my role models,” Argue said in an interview with the Gazette. “I so connected with what they did and what I got from them that I never really had any other idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a teacher.” The positive impact of educators continued during Argue’s teaching career. At the junior high in Surrey where he worked for five years he learned from two highly motivated administrators. “The principal and vice-principal both had such an amazing impact,” he said. “The school was in North Surrey,

with a real high-risk population of students, and there were a lot of reasons to make excuses about things, and they did so many amazing things in our school with our staff, our kids and our community that I saw you could do a lot more than just with the kids in one class, but have an impact on a greater number of people and on a community. I thought that was something I might like to try.” Argue decided to stay close to his parents when they moved to the Kootenays and accepted a position as a vice-principal at Grand Forks Secondary School and then as prin-

cipal of Perley Elementary. Argue credits the previous two superintendents with working closely with principals in the district, work which helped prepare him for the transition to his current job. “We got to work on a leadership team with them, so I had that sense of what the educational side of the job was, and that was what I aspired to, thinking, okay, now you can have an impact on this level, on principals and on all schools and the community,” he said.

City selected for Head Start program for young women CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

City council received notification that Grand Forks has been selected to participate in the Head Start

for Girls and Young Women program. The program is an initiative of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). Grand Forks is set to

become one of only seven municipalities across Canada to deliver the project. “That’s an exciting program,” said Mayor Brian Taylor. “As one of those

parents of girls, as much as you prepare your daughter to enter into public life and take a role in a number of areas, they are limited by society. I think this is a really progressive program.

New automotive feature launched

IN BRIEF Auditor general report At the Grand Forks City Council meeting on Oct. 15, council received a report from Basia Ruta, B.C.’s auditor general for local government (AGLG). Ruta began work as B.C.’s first AGLG in January with the goal of conducting performance audits which provide local governments with objective information and advice to help them be accountable to their communities for their stewardship of public assets and their achievement of value for money in their operations. The annual report covered the period from April 25, 2012 through March 31, 2013. “She gave everyone an update on what they’ve been doing,” said Doug Allin, Grand Forks city administrative officer.

City asset management plan At council on Oct. 15, Mayor Brian Taylor talked about a presentation he gave at a special Asset Management B.C. seminar. Attending the meeting, which took place Oct. 10 at River Rock Casino in Delta, with Taylor was city CAO Doug Allin, who said the presentation was very well received. “Brian (Taylor) and the mayor from Golden were the two who were chosen to present in front of delegates from all over the province,” said Allin. “There were over 100 people in the ballroom. The mayor stood up and talked about the initiatives that council has done. He impressed the provincial government and helped us towards our grant application for 2014.” The grants are to help with the multi-utility project in which the city would improve not only the roads but the infrastructure below such as sewer and water pipes as well. ‘It really couldn’t have gone any better for us,” said Allin. “Getting out in front of all those people and demonstrating what the city has done certainly bodes well for us.” Taylor said the meeting was a cross-section of municipal staff and councils. “Best of all, there was a provincial and federal representative in the audience,” he said. Taylor gave a lot of credit to Allin for setting up the opportunity for the presentation using his connections. “Through his connection to LGMA, the group that represents paid employees, got us invited to be part of a panel discussion,” Allin said. “When I got there, I found out I was going to have some podium time. “It was really worthwhile for me to get up and tell the Grand Forks story to a very receptive group of people.” Taylor said that he believes Grand Forks stacks up to any city in B.C. when it comes to its asset management plan. “We’re ready to go here,” he said. “We’ve done all the preliminary work. We’ve done all our homework. “We’ve set ourselves up to be a demonstration area.”

Head Start

KEITH MORGAN Driveway editor

Today, we are excited to introduce Driveway—our new weekly automotive feature, designed to inform and entertain with brightly written stories from our Made in B.C. team. Zack Spencer, co-host of Canada’s highest-rated auto show Driving Television and voice of a nationally syndicated radio show, will tell you what is hot

and not among the new models. Women play a decision-making role in more than 80 per cent of car purchases; Alexandra Straub will help them make the right decision. In Near New, technical wizard Bob McHugh will pick out the best in ‘previously loved’ cars. Ian Harwood will join us soon with his column Just Trucks. Yours truly will bring you the latest news from all of the international launches and auto shows and make

sure Driveway speaks to all of our readers, not just car nuts. Blair Qualey, president and CEO of the BC New Car Dealers Association, shares our enthusiasm: “The launch of Driveway is good news for readers as well as the B.C. auto industry, which is a $10 billion business that employs 34,000 direct and indirect jobs in the new car industry in this province. “Car buyers throughout the province will now get the sort of auto news and information previously enjoyed only by residents of the larger metro areas. “The breadth of the coverage will benefit new car dealerships of all brands by exposing a large new readership to their products. A knowledgeable buyer is good for all brands.”

October is Community Living Month. To celebrate, the Kootenay Society for Community Living (KSCL) put on their first annual ‘Pay it Forward Day’ on Oct. 11. Participants, board members and staff of KSCL were out and about in Grand Forks performing various random acts of kindness on that day. Paying it forward at Overwaitea that day were: (back from left) Heather Fletcher, Ryan Martens, Diane Borthwick, Andrew Reiter, Jann Beliveau and Sheryl Kucher.

FCM meeting back in May that I attended,” she said. “So I made the leap and submitted an application. From there, I received a phone call in July for an interview.” Wyers said she found out in August that Grand Forks had been chosen as one of the seven communities from across Canada. “I know they wanted a rural component,” said Wyers. “I also articulated that

we had a number of womens’ groups in our region.” Wyers said they will be looking to attract 16- to 24-year-old young ladies to the program. “I’m just in the outreach assessment process right now,” she said. “I’m networking with the various organizations (such as the Boundary Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures, Selkirk College, and the Boundary women’s business group)

and asking them to approach young girls or women to see if they would be interested in the program. Once we have our group together of six to 12 young ladies, the representative from Ottawa will visit our community to kick off the program and evaluate our funding needs.” The young women will eventually come up with a community project which they will spearhead themselves, with the guidance of Wyers and other mentors.

The Rotary club’s annual Halloween bonfire and fireworks evening will be held at Angus MacDonald Park, not James Donaldson as said in the story ‘Rotary fireworks ready to burst on Halloween night’ on page A3 of the Oct. 16 Gazette.

The tires that bind


here is now no denying fall has gripped the Boundary. Although the days are still balmy and clear, the crisp feel in the evening air and the chill hanging in the early morning hours speaks of a definitive change in the seasons. Winter is coming. And with it, a change in activities and driving habits. Winter tires are not a mandatory item to put on your vehicle on some roads, but for anyone who has driven more than one winter in most parts of Canada, they are a necessity. This is not a cash grab. Try a winter with all season tires and, if you make it through, slap on a set of winter tires and notice the difference. The softer tires do matter. In addition to giving your vehicle the necessary grip on the ice, people still need to remember to give a larger space between their vehicle and the one they are following. Winter means compromised reaction time for a vehicle, despite your own razor sharp reflexes, and drivers have to take that into consideration when on the road. It’s the same drill as last year, but we have to be prepared now for it.

No Name Calling rule tested by American cousin second opinion JIM HOlTZ

The ongoing kafuffle down south featuring the president and his fellow liberal Democrats versus the right wing Republicans reminds me of a spat I had years ago with my somewhat thick-headed American cousin, Harlan Sculpepper, over his membership in the Tarzan Club. That was the club my buddies Bob, David and Howard and I created when we were eight. When Harlan and his mother, my mother’s older sister, came up from Idaho to visit, he naturally wanted to join our club. Who wouldn’t? I had doubts about letting him in because I knew that he could be stubborn, nasty and was not, as my older brother liked to say, the brightest candle on the cake.

Still, he had a Red Ryder BB gun that he liked to carry around and since none of us were allowed to have a BB gun let alone carry one around, we let him join, hoping he would let us shoot it. Of course, he refused to let us even hold it, citing his father’s credo that “a real man don’t let nobody touch his gun, drive his truck, or beat his dog.” Once Harlan was voted in, the problems began. First, he didn’t want to pay the 25-cent initiation fee, saying that it was an unfair tax. Nor did he want to pay the 10-cent per week dues for the same reason. When we tried to explain that both assessments were what enabled us to go once a month to the A&W for a root beer and a hamburger he said that he might agree on one condition, that we eliminate rule six in the Tarzan Club Official Rules: “No name calling.” My mother happened to overhear this in the kitchen

and stepped out the back door to intervene. The No Name Calling rule had been her idea after listening to my older brother and me relentlessly lambasting each other with various inappropriate labels. Harlan said that the rule was an infringement on his constitutional right to free speech. My mother tried to point out that maintaining the rule which had already been unanimously passed by the four original Tarzans was really in Harlan’s interest since he had access to only one inappropriate name and the rest of us could fire off dozens at him (Harlan could only remember one bad name: “Dodo brain”). Plus, since he had just joined the club, he would profit from the already accumulated dues the next time we went to A&W. Harlan wasn’t convinced. His school in Idaho had just re-enacted the Boston Tea Party incident and he said that taxation without representation was

the work of the devil. In protest he took three packages of Kool Aid we had in the clubhouse (we didn’t have any tea) and poured them into nearby Skunk Creek. My friends and I wanted to throw Harlan out of the club, but frankly, were a little afraid of him. After all, he was bigger than we were and had that BB gun. Fortunately, my mother said that she had a veto over all our decisions and vetoed our original vote to make him a member. That same evening my aunt whacked him in the back of the head as well, muttering that his daddy was an idiot. They went back to Idaho eventually, and the Tarzans went happily on their way for two more years, until Howard wanted us to change rule one: ”Boys Only” and accept Becky Wimpleman as a member. That was a change not even the mighty Tarzans could survive.

to the editor

To the Editor: Could the real issue be here that Dan Planidin, who by helping all these other people clean up their unsightly premises, is cutting into city bylaw enforcement’s territory and keeping the city from bringing in all this extra revenue to justify a paycheque? If Planidin goes and cleans up one site—which the city may have billed that poor taxpayer $10,000—is he undermining the justification for bylaw? Could this be the real reason bylaw is going after Dan Planidin? I recall working for the city in the 1970s, when the city works department was located in what is now the fire hall. Since then, the city works department has developed itself into a much more lavish operation even though the population has not grown so much. I wish to know what the budget was in 1976 to run the city works department and city hall and, in comparison, what the budgets are now. I would also like to know how much

the city spends on chlorine each year. I would also like to have a total reassessment done on what we really need to run this city. How many people were hired in the 1970s? What were their jobs, then and now? How much were they paid? What was the population then? How many taxpayers were there, before and now? What was the total in taxes collected then and now? How many people do we have on duty now and how much are they paid? The citizens of Grand Forks have a right to know these answers. Maybe it’s time to reassess what we really need to spend our hard-earned money on—it sure isn’t chlorine, water meters and bureaucrats trying to justify their own tyranny. Let us spend the money on a lowincome trailer park for the homeless people and scrap the chlorine, water meters and b.s. Nadine Nevocshonoff, Grand Forks

he idea that ordinary Canadians are overburden in the eyes of government and corporations is certainly thought provoking yet it appears to aptly describe how vast numbers of people are recognized in society. A geologist or a miner knows that “overburden” as the layer of soil and rock overlying a mineral deposit. It’s the material that must be removed in an open pit mining operation to get at coal, precious metals and bitumen from the tar sands operation. It’s waste material. Naomi Klein, well-known author and journalist recently introduced the concept that citizens and organized groups are overburden in a speech delivered in Toronto on Sept. 1, 2013. Klein gained notoriety with her book The Shock Doctrine, an explanation of how corporate interests have systematically exploited various forms Rousing of mass crises such as wars, economic the Rabble downturns, and natural disasters such ROY RONAGHAN as hurricane Katrina. It is Klein’s belief that people who also means, simply, to leave with too dare to question elected officials, great a burden; to push something or bureaucrats and corporate heads are a someone beyond their limits.” Most people in our 21st Century society are layer in society that interferes with overburdened.

However, once he became the superintendent himself, he discovered that there was a lot more to the job than he had anticipated. “Once you get in this office, you see that there is a lot more going on and that the school district connects to so many different things in the community, and with our partners in the community.” Those partnerships are an indication of the changing role of public education. The Ministry of Education has become the ministry turned to first to address perceived social problems, Argue said. That is because the public school system has an immediate and permanent connection to the broadest range of society. “I think the role of the education system and the schools and principals and teachers, what they are responsible for, has really broadened. It used to be a fairly narrow focus: teaching and learning,” he explained. “And now the school provides so much for so many kids from nutrition to nurturing, to social and emotional support, things that were not asked of it in the past.” However, unlike other communities in the province, Argue believes that the Boundary responds to the expanded role of the school system with exceptional effort.

“The partnerships that we have chosen to form to meet the broad needs that are now required of the school system, are remarkable. The need is great and the Boundary has reacted to fulfill that need. We do a really great job of taking all the resources that we have to meet those needs and stretching them as far as we can.” When asked by the Gazette if public education was perhaps taking on too much, Argue said, “Is our role too broad? Strictly speaking in terms of numbers and letters, in that sense, yes, but in terms of education of the whole child and making their life chances as good as we can make them, no. It could never be too broad. The focus and the role of education may have developed a much broader base, but we are now thinking about how to prepare successful citizens.” In addition to the broadened scope of public education, the ministry has decided to emphasize personalized learning in its latest Education Plan. Through the use of technology, students are now able to work more and more outside of the classroom and individualise the content of their learning. “The way we are organized now, with teachers responsible for a group of students, is a good thing,” Argue said, “because teachers, what they do better than anyone else is that they form relationships with this broad base of kids

that are in class with them every day. And if they form relationships there is a really, really high percentage of students who are going to be successful in that learning environment where someone is looking after their learning needs and supporting them. “When we talk about personalized learning,” he continued, “I see it happening differently than in our present structure, but I don’t see us in any way wanting to get away from the connection and relationships that a teacher has with students because that is probably the most important thing that happens in our schools. “And where that is formed in a good way, really good things are going to happen for those students. There are a percentage of kids who don’t learn well in front of a teacher. Some, but not all, have the skills to be an individual personalized learner. Hopefully, they will still be guided through that process by a teacher.” Argue’s enthusiasm for teaching and the positive connection teachers can have with students is as strong now as it ever was. It is the thing he misses most sitting in his school board office. “I find it difficult not being around the kids, and the energy of the kids, and just dealing with all those relationships. You give, but you get back so much from them.”


Senior’s Lifestyle Community Keeps Winter at Bay

Life in winter can be daunting for seniors. The cold temperatures can make the simplest of tasks much more difficult. Chores like shoveling the drive-way or picking up groceries can turn into momentous tasks. Ice and snow represent real physical dangers that can not only cause a nasty fall but also get in the way of activities outside the house. There is always the worry of a broken or failing heating system that can result in all manner of bills and troubles, adding more unnecessary stress. Combine these stresses and it may lower quality of life, causing family members endless worry. Fortunately retirement housing at Silver Kettle Village can provide plenty of peace of mind for both the residents and the family members, with apartments designed to take the worry out of winter. Not only are the studio, one and two-bedroom suites appointed for comfort and independence but also include many key features to help with each resident’s individual wants and needs. Independent heat and airconditioning controls allow them to set the apartments temperature to whatever will be most comfortable for them. Full kitchens and large wheelchair accessible bathrooms can help residents maintain their independence while weekly housekeeping services and 24-hour assistance is available for complete peace of mind. Since the Village boasts many leisure opportunities, residents don’t have to worry about braving the harsh winter weather in search of relaxation and fun. Just outside of their front door they will find many amenities such as a games room, library, and spa, as well as many lounge areas which are certain to be filled with friendly

faces and familiar smiles. There are also special recreational and social activities such as live entertainment, exercise programs and excursions to local attractions, which are all covered in the affordable monthly rent. Also included in the rent are the delicious meals which are prepared by the onsite chef in the warm central dining room where residents can enjoy meal next to a cozy fireplace where friends and family are always welcome to join. Silver Kettle Village also understands just how much pets are a part of the family. Residents are encouraged to share their apartments with their companions in the totally pet friendly building. With all of these wonderful features the Village relieves worries not only for residents but also for family members. “I had the best winter last year because I live three hours away and didn’t have to worry about my mom being alone.” said Linda Frew, whose mother is a resident at the Golden Life location in Kimberley. “I have total peace of mind knowing there is staff on site 24 hours a day, that she has company for dinner every night, and she is being well cared for. But most of all I have peace of mind knowing she is very happy.” No longer should seniors have to worry about shoveling the walkway or what they’ll do should a maintenance emergency befall them. Cold weather is no reason that seniors shouldn’t be free to enjoy the many activities, freedoms, and quality of life. Silver Kettle Village provides just that and much, much more. Open daily; call Silver Kettle Village at (250) 442-0667 for more information or to book a tour.

Small Business Week 2013

Boomers and your business How Canada’s aging population could hurt businesses—and help them We all know Canada’s population is aging. But how will changing demographics affect your business? First, the good news. Aging consumers have different buying habits, so that means opportunities if you’re creative. The bad news is that as baby boomers retire, many businesses will face labour shortages because not enough younger workers will be around take their place. Either way, businesses that don’t adapt to the reality of the aging population could face severe challenges and are going to miss opportunities, says Pierre Cléroux, Chief Economist at the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). The impacts are already being felt in some sectors and regions where businesses are struggling to find younger employees to replace retiring boomers. “If we don’t manage our labour force according to the new trends, it’s going to be difficult for businesses to be successful,” Cléroux says.

Retain older employees

In the next 20 years, the median age of Canadians is expected to rise to 45, up from 26 in 1991, Statistics Canada projects. Twenty years ago, nearly two people entered the labour force for every person nearing retirement. Today, the ratio is one to one, and it is expected to drop further. Happily, Cléroux says entrepreneurs can take steps to adapt—and even find opportunities by reviewing how to adapt products and services to an older consumer’s needs. “Every sector of the economy is going to be impacted,” Cléroux says. To deal with the coming labour crunch, you can start by creating more accommodating workplaces to entice aging employees to put off retirement, he suggests. Older workers often can’t or don’t want to work full-time. Flexible hours, part-time jobs and temporary work are ways to keep them on board. Some companies also deliberately recruit seniors to fill labour gaps. “Older workers usually have a great work ethic and experience,” Cléroux says. “Businesses will need to keep their people working for them longer. The perception is that at 65 people are done. That perception will have to change.” Les MacIntyre is a firm believer in retaining older employees to make up for a shortage of younger workers at his company, Superport Marine Services. He has no mandatory retirement age and offers retirees flexible, part-time and temporary jobs. He also pairs them with younger workers to pass on skills. “Those guys pick up a wealth of expertise. The retired guys have the patience to pass on that knowledge. They bring a lifetime of skill,” he says. MacIntyre also works hard to foster a positive workplace culture so retirees are eager to come back. “I try to instill a stimulating and satisfying workplace so they enjoy working here and I have a high retention rate.”

32 per cent of the labour force will have been born outside Canada, versus 21 per cent today. Cléroux says Canadian entrepreneurs will need to be more welcoming to foreign-born workers. “Businesses will have to be more flexible in accepting people trained, educated and born outside Canada.” Creative changes will be needed to remain competitive, he adds. “We can no longer do the same things as in the past. The structure of the last 40 years is going to have to change. But if we do things correctly, we should be able to retain Canada’s competitive position.”

Why join the chamber? In addition to the Chamber Members Benefits Program, which includes health and dental plans custom fit to your business, gasoline and fuel discounts through major distributors, and many others, Boundary Country Chamber of Commerce can offer 1. A perfect place to meet other local business owners. 2. The chamber of commerce is often the first place of contact for those outside of the Boundary, regarding new business opportunities and existing business enquires. 3. The chamber of commerce is up to date on most business grants and loans available. 4. We frequently arrange seminars and workshops at no extra cost, to bring together members and experts from inside and outside of the Boundary, to maximize all possibilities to enhance new and existing businesses. 5. We also play an important part in investigating complaints and we advocate on behalf of the local business community if required. 6. Your local chamber of commerce works with other chambers of commerce in B.C. to stay informed on subjects and issues outside of the Boundary, so we have the overall “big picture” of businesses to aid local decisions. 7. Your chamber of commerce can assist in organizing your Business after Business social as well. 8. Membership in a chamber of commerce provides businesses an influential avenue to voice their ideas for economic improvement in their community. A large membership contributes to a stronger chamber, and that can affect a more positive impact on decisions made toward attracting investment into the area. 9. Your chamber of commerce can be influential in the development of policies at provincial and federal levels 10. As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, your small business may be eligible for awards.

Financing business growth

Ogloff Financial Services Inc.

What you need to know before you go to the bank Say you’ve got a small business in need of a loan. You’re growing, and you’d like some extra money for an expansion project. Sales are going up, and you’re making a nice profit. Should be an easy sell to the bank, right? Not necessarily, especially if you don’t do your homework, says Pat Latour, Senior Vice President, Financing and Consulting, at the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). “If you’re going to expand, you’ve got to have a plan. If you don’t, you can jeopardize the rest of the business that is doing well,” he says. Many businesses walk into a bank’s office without the right planning—and then they’re surprised when their loan request is turned down. “Knowing the numbers is key. How will the expansion affect your profitability?” Latour asks. “Growing businesses need more working capital because they’re often supporting additional inventory and more staff. And it often takes a while for the expansion to increase profitability,” Latour explains. “On the other hand, an expansion can also lead to unexpectedly rapid revenue growth. Entrepreneurs should also plan for that scenario and be ready to use the extra revenue to aim even higher,” he says. How do you get your ducks in a row for a successful loan request? First, take time to work out your anticipated return on the investment, including not just the cost of the fixed asset, but also the way your business operations will change as you grow. Second, it’s vital to think about your timing when applying for a loan. Businesses often wait too long, Latour says. Instead, they use cash flow to finance major expansions or, even worse, wait until they’re facing a cash crunch to see the bank. “One of the biggest reasons businesses fail or an expansion doesn’t succeed is a lack of working capital. It’s always

easier to get financing beforehand than when you have a timing crunch,” he says. Latour advises fast-growing businesses to meet their banker every year to get a pre-approved loan for capital expenditures, which they can draw on instead of tapping working capital. Such a credit facility also lets a business react more quickly to opportunities, since it doesn’t need to apply for a new loan each time it needs funds.

Change to grow

Sean Darrah learned some of these lessons at his fastgrowing food services business, Pace Processing. Starting from a 1,500-square-foot space in 2001, it had grown to a 10,000-square-foot location by 2007. But even that space was maxed out, and Darrah wanted to expand into a new, bigger building. He had always used working capital to finance his growth, but he now realized he needed a loan for the costly expansion. He was in for a surprise when he approached a bank and was initially turned down. Despite sales growth of 25 per cent to 30 per cent per year, he had been spending all his operating cash and writing off equipment every year. “It looked like we didn’t have many assets,” Darrah says, who then hired an accounting firm to help him demonstrate his company’s true value. The bank took another look and agreed to the loan, which allowed Pace to move into its own new 25,000-square-foot building in 2010. Darrah also got a line of credit for future capital spending. “What prevented us from taking the next step was always spending all our cash. It was really clear we needed to change to grow.”

Small Business is the back bone of our community!

The City of Grand Forks recognizes the many contributions of small business to our community

K. Louise Currier Notary Public

How a website makeover can help Canadian companies soar In a few short years, the Internet has become indispensable for business. Today, a website is a vital tool for many companies. However, Canadian entrepreneurs lag in using the Internet to boost sales and reach customers. Only 40 per cent of small businesses in Canada had a website in 2012, according to Statistics Canada. And even those with a website often don’t use it effectively.

It means Canadian businesses are missing out on huge opportunities, says Michel Bergeron, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Public Affairs, at the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). “This is how customers find products and services today, when more than 50 per cent of the purchasing decision process takes place online. A website is your digital storefront and lets you showcase your products 24 hours a day to a worldwide market.” An Internet presence is important even if your business isn’t planning to sell anything online, Bergeron explains. Your customers may still look for your website or social media page to check your opening hours, contact information and products. To get started, step back and create an online strategy for your website, Bergeron suggests. It doesn’t have to be fancy or incredibly detailed. The idea is to sit with key staff and hammer out your website’s goals, target audience and key messages. You don’t need to invest in a big, costly website at the outset, Bergeron says. Free and low-cost services such as WordPress and GoDaddy allow businesses to design and update a site quickly, with no programming knowhow. Social media pages also let companies promote themselves with no upfront cost.

Diner features 50’s flair

When the laundry is out, we’re in!

Heart goes into every home

Patricia Pownall

250-446-2171 131 Central Ave Grand Forks 250-442-5585 Leanna Byrd offers up a fresh brew in her popular 50’s diner.


appy Days 50’s Diner started out as Happy Days Donuts April of 2011. Soon after opening, it was made clear by our customers that because of our 1950’s theme they wanted a diner serving a full breakfast, hamburgers and typical diner food. We evolved quickly into a 50’s diner serving all day breakfast. Our hamburgers, turkey, pulled pork, soup, and chili are all made on site to ensure quality and freshness. During the summer of 2013 a decision was made to discontinue providing donuts in order to concentrate on the growth of Happy Days as a diner and therefore the name was changed to Happy Days 50’s Diner. Take a step back in time in our authentic 50’s decor, where coke is still served in glass bottles and Golden Oldies play all day. We make good old fashioned quality food with a 50’s flair to go with it and are known for being the Bouudary’s “best kept secret”. We’re open 7 days a week from 6 a.m. - 4 p.m., but will gladly open late to host your unique 50’s Christmas or private parties.

ith the recent recession in 2008 and even the latest difficulties in the United States with their debt problems, it’s easy to want to stick your money under your mattress. Sadly, that’s not a great method for building equity. Plus, you eventually end up with a very lumpy mattress. Fortunately, if you live in or around Grand Forks, there’s Robert J. Ogloff who can help you with all your financial investment needs. “We offer financial planning, retirement planning, mutual funds, tax-free savings account, life insurance, critical illness

insurance, benefit plans, all kinds of savings plans,” said Ogloff. Ogloff Financial Services Inc. is licensed through SunLife Financial. “The big thing why people come to me is because they’re looking for financial advice,” he said. “They want to make sure they’re on track for their retirement goals. They want to make sure they’re family is taken care of in case they get sick or die prematurely.” Ogloff added that many people are worried about the market crash of 2008 and wonder how their investments are doing. “I get a lot of people who ask me for a second opinion on how their portfolios are doing,” he said. “They want to make sure they’re still on track.” Ogloff said there are a lot of risks in the market and he helps clients navigate those potential mine fields. “I deal with a lot of retired clients and those people traditionally are not earning the interest rates that they used to in term deposits, so they’re looking at ways to maximize their retirement income and also protect their assets,” he said. “The big thing is making sure they have enough retirement income to live on.” On the other side of the age spectrum, Ogloff said younger people do look towards their retirement and how to prepare.

“Younger people are more concerned with making sure that – because they haven’t saved up a lot of money – that in the case the major earner in the family passes away, the kids and spouse are going to be taken care of,” he said. “They start to think of investing because with young people and how the investment compounds they can save up a big nest egg just by investing earlier.” Ogloff suggests that young earners start with an investment they can afford. “Whether it’s $50 or $100 a month – the earlier you can start the better,” he said. “It’s amazing what that can do for you. If you’re 20 years old, $50 a month may not seem like a lot at the time. But even that, by the time you’re 50 or 60 years old, has grown to a big amount.” Because each client is unique, Ogloff meets with each one to fully understand their specific situation and goals. Based on those needs, he’ll help them make informed financial choices to build their savings and protect against unexpected events and help to prepare financially for the future. Having been born and raised in Grand Forks, Ogloff knows the area. In fact, he just celebrated his 20th anniversary of the business in Grand Forks. “I’ve been with the same company for the last 20 years providing financial services for the

people in the area,” he said. Ogloff has been married for 16 years and he and his wife have 2 1/2 year-old twins. The only time he has been away from Grand Forks was when he went to Okanagan College in Kelowna for business administration. “I was very happy to come back to Grand Forks,” he said. “I’m a farm boy at heart. I love the small town. I grew up on a farm here.” There’s no doubt that the small life is for Ogloff. He likes being close to bigger centres such as Kelowna or Spokane, but not have to live there. “I don’t want to live in a big city,” he said. “I love the quiet lifestyle where I can camp and fish. I don’t like the noise. I don’t like the stress that goes with it.” Ogloff also loves to help out in the community and is an active member of the local Rotary club. “Being involved in Rotary gives me a chance to give back to the community that supports me,” he said. “I’m happy to get involved in local projects.” One of his favourite projects is the Halloween fireworks and bonfire event. “I got to experience that as a kid and here I am now on the other side helping out with that for my children,” he said. “I also like doing the kettle corn and seeing where the money goes, like sending a kid to camp or a youth exchange.”

Leading-edge techniques – now in Grand Forks

Salmon Chiropractic Corp.

Yaletown Acupunture 235 72nd Avenue Grand Forks BC 250-442-9662

7323 3rd Street, Grand Forks BC 250-442-4232 My name is Lynn Relph and I work as a laser technician at Salmon Chiropractic here in Grand Forks. I have a background as a registered nurse and have worked in the acute care and long term care fields. I work closely with Dr. Margaret Salmon to help people with the healing of soft tissue injuries or conditions. Low intensity light therapy has been proven effective in many double blind clinical trials. I can attest through my practice how effective this treatment is in the reduction of pain, increase in mobility, reduction in use of pain medications as well as increasing a general state of wellbeing with better sleep patterns and increased activity levels. I treat people with many different conditions. Degenerative osteoarthritis in the spine, knees, hips and ankles. Injuries and trauma to muscle tissue, tendons and joints respond extremely well to treatment by reducing inflammation and pain and preventing or reducing the formation of scar tissue. Laser treatment for problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff injury and herniated discs may reduce the need for surgical intervention. orking in conjunction with Dr. Salmon’s chiropractic treatment, laser therapy is an effective alternative to conventional therapies. We’d love to have you start feeling the benefits of laser therapy today. Please call 442-4232 for your appointment.


You’d think that after 25 years of school Beverly Osachoff would take a study break. She grins. “The more you learn, the more you realize there is to know.” aletown Acupuncture & TCM in Grand Forks was created with the idea that rural communities deserve the same level of care as any big city. This modern, fully accessible clinic is clean, comfortable, and features a full “ menu” of services. Amongst Beverly’s newest clinical treasures are acupuncture injection therapies (AIT) including: Biopuncture, trigger point therapy, segmental therapy, and vitamin injections. Collectively, these are techniques used to treat stubborn pain from soft tissue injuries, migraines, scars, and the like, by nourishing damaged tissues during the treatment process. These techniques have been used for over 20 years and are finally considered “leading-edge”. AIT is of huge interest to orthapaedic surgeons, neuro surgeons, and sports medicine folks, but its foundations are in acupuncture so licensed acupuncturists like Beverly Osachoff are taking to AIT like craftsmen graduating to power tools after only having Fisher Price. Yaletown Acupuncture is also pleased to offer advanced skin repair thanks to the new “Qi beauty” (tm) technique. Your skin literally comes back to life with 1000 gold magnets that regenerate tired skin and restore a healthy glow. Yes, it is true: the city has come to Grand Forks!


Coffee a Grand Forks story At the height of an economic downturn, Tom Lockwood and Susan Klarner of Kocomo’s Coffee House were looking at a way to re-invent and recession-proof their business. The mother and son team developed a plan for a coffee roasting company, with the intention of branding their coffee and marketing for the traditional and non-traditional retail grocer market. Their brand, Hardy Mountain Coffee Roasters (HMC.), became a hit and is now sold at stores throughout Southern B.C. Klarner started the coffee shop in 1995 after moving to Grand Forks from North Vancouver. “I loved the area and the people,” she said. “I totally changed my working capacity and opened the coffeehouse. Lockwood, who lived in Vancouver and moved from the coast in 2004, became co-owner of Kocomo’s “Through the years, we’ve grown and diversified,” said Klarner. “We’ve gone in the direction of roasting coffee for the wholesale and retail markets, expanding our capabilities outside of Grand Forks. We’ve always kept in mind, though, that Grand Forks is home and birthplace of Hardy Mountain Coffee.” Lockwood is in charge of roasting and creating blend profiles for the brand. He has spent a number of years now perfecting the craft, “there are a lot of variables determining the outcome of the roast, so nothing is ever perfect” said Lockwood. “Roasting coffee is like making wine, one part craft and science mixed with prior knowledge of the coffees to gain the best outcome” said Klarner. “I returned to BC. about 12 years ago,” said Lockwood. I had the opportunity to visit coffee plantations while working and traveling

in Mexico and Central America. I always found it fascinating logistically. From crop to cup it is one of the most rustic and complicated crops to bring to market. It has been calculated that it takes approximately 2000hrs from cultivation to end-user. Much like his mother a decade before, Lockwood decided he didn’t like the pace of Vancouver. I just wanted to step back and come out to the country so to speak,” he said. “I left and came out here and didn’t know what to expect. I started working at the coffee shop. I started out loving to drink coffee and ended up loving to prepare coffee.” Lockwood also liked the social aspect of serving people and getting to know them. In the mid-2000s, people started leaving town to look for work, the pair had to come up with a plan, said Lockwood. “The most reasonable step, evolution-wise, was roasting coffee,” he said. In the early stages, HMC roasted and sold their coffee out of Kocomo’s and the response was positive “Once we had our packaging and our coffee profiles established, we started heading out to find some accounts,” said Lockwood. “I had no idea about the retail market at that point.” Although nervous at first, local businesses such as Pharmasave and Buy-Low Foods were very positive and helpful. “It gave us the experience and allowed us to grow into the industry, while learning the curve” said Lockwood. A price checker at Overwaitea spotted Hardy Mountain Coffee display in Buy-Low Foods and soon enough, the product was added to Overwaitea as a full-listing. “He said, this is local supplier, I’ve

got to have it in my store.’ said Lockwood. “That means you have the possibility to go to anyone of their stores and apply to have it listed on their shelves.” After getting their coffee into stores such as Urban Fare, Save-On-Foods and Ferraro Foods, the two are looking at expanding into Sobeys and Safeway in Alberta. “Right now, we’re basically from Fernie to Vancouver,” said Lockwood. “It’s worked out well for us.” “This year has been quite busy for us” said Lockwood, travelling from Vancouver to the East Kootenays regularly for coffee shows and coffee demonstrations at local super market chains to introduce the brand and garner customer loyalty. Meanwhile, Kocomo’s, the original coffee house, continues to be a popular spot in Grand Forks to pick up fresh roasted packaged coffee, coffee beverages and just hang out in a super chilled atmosphere. “I like to sample different blends and single origins in the coffee house and see what the response is,” said Lockwood. “It’s all about being creative. We religiously cup our roasted coffees (a method of quality control). I’ll change some blends up as new harvests arrive in our facility. Our coffees range from medium roasts to dark roasts.” Some of the coffee blends available include; 49th Parallel, a dark roast blend featuring coffee from Africa and Indonesia resulting in a tantalizing roast of chocolate and baked spices; Elephant Head Espresso, an articulate espresso that dominates the cup; and The Dancing Goat, a hearty aroma of nutty chocolate and earthiness. ‘Makes you want to dance with the goat.’ For more information, or to pick up some coffee, go to Kocomo’s on 2nd Street in Grand Forks or visit them online at

Preparations are well under way for gallery 2’s 22nd annual Wine Tasting event. The gala event takes place Nov. 23 at the gallery and goes from 8 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. and will again feature a wide range of selections from wineries throughout B.C. “It’s a fundraiser for us that we’ve been doing for 22 years,” said Dawsha Hunt, Visitor Centre manager and event coordinator. “We actually veered off from strictly wine tasting and in the past years we’ve brought on a few craft breweries. In the past we’ve had spirits but we’re not doing it this year. We’ve also got local food producers like Jerseyland Organics and Max the Cupcake Kid.” Hunt says the event already has five food producers, two breweries and nine wineries so far. “We’ve got some newbies coming and soon oldies,” she said. “Gehringer Brothers has been with us every year of the 22 years. Among the returning beverage sellers are House of Rose; Nelson Brewing Company; and Tinwhistle Brewery out of Penticton. “One of the new ones com-

ing is Bailey Grohman Winery from Creston, and Odego of 45th Estate Winery from Osoyoos,” said Hunt. “We stick to B.C. products. That’s our focus. We’ve got a couple from the Kootenays and the rest from the Okanagan.” Tickets are on sale now at gallery 2 on 524 Central Ave. in Grand Forks. The event also features a safe ride home program available through the Grand Forks Secondary School graduate class. The theme for this year’s wine tasting event is “A Vintage Christmas.” Hunt says the annual event essentially signifies the start of the Christmas season and gives Grand Forkers a chance to dress to the nines and enjoy a big city experience without leaving town. “This beautiful old heritage building, we decorate it all up,” she said. “We put up a big 15foot tree. It’s the day we turn on the lights. You can come casually, but a lot of people take it as an opportunity to put on your fancy cocktail dress or long dress. We’ve had men come in tuxedos all swanked out. It’s kind of a Christmas party where you wander from table to table and taste the wares. It’s a nice evening event.”

Lummi sticks celebrates 30th CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Hutton Elementary held it’s 30th annual Lummi Stick tournament on Oct. 10 in the school’s gym. Music teacher Randy Breedveld was the organizer and has been since the event’s inception in 1983. Students, staff and some parents got to see 13 groups battle it out for lummi stick supremacy in the hotly contested tournament. Breedveld initially got the idea for lummi sticks from Lorraine Barg, who was the music teacher at Perley Elementary at the time. “She taught me how do some basic throws and catches,” he said. “I introduced it to the kids and it just caught on like wildfire. They just really enjoyed making up different patterns and throwing them back and forth. We got the idea to make up routines and setting them to music.” Breedveld said the program allows kids to be creative. It also mixes elements of music, dance/ movement and friendship. “The reason I like if for music is it develops hand-eye coordination,” he said. “It also develops their sense of the beat, which is important for a musician. It’s part of the music program. It develops their creativity and cooperation skills in a fun environment.” Many of the teams enhance their routines by dressing up and putting makeup on. Some teams use props such as cheerleader pom poms and mini-trampolines. The participants start practicing right on the first day of school in September, said Breedveld.

“They practice during music classes or at lunch time,” he said. “The principal is very nice and allows us to practice at different locations throughout the school.” Although music students start using lummi sticks in kindergarten, the tournament is for students in Grades 5-7. Breedveld says he also sometimes holds a junior tournament for younger age groups. “As the kids get older, they have more sophisticated patterns and more complicated routines,” he said. “It’s traditionally the girls that like it, but more boys are becoming involved.” Breedveld started making his own lummi sticks in 1984. “I either cut up broom handles or use dowling in my workshop,” he said. “I paint them with different designs.” This year’s theme for the tournament was using songs from previous champions. “It was good quality and entertaining,” he said. “There was lots of creativity. The winning team used the Mission Impossible theme and combined it with spy moves and black costumes and smoke machines.” Overall champions: Sophia Plotnikoff, Jasmine Starchuk and Sydney Thomas; Song: Mission Impossible. Second place: Jayden LeRoy, Makenna Burrows, Kelsa Leslie and Faith Thomson; Song: Love Shack. Third place: Savannah Menzies and Raelyn Morgan; Song: Good Morning.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan

The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.


The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch

at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

The images in the exhibition Conversations with Nature, by award winning photographer Janet Dwyer, consist of large format “scanography” or collages of found objects produced by using the lens and light source of her flatbed scanner as an extension of traditional photographic tools. In her career as a professional photographer, Dwyer specializes in photographing works of art by artists, galleries and museums that require high-resolution images. The progression to the use of a scanner allows her to explore her fascination with detail. Dwyer lives on Saltspring Island and has worked as a professional photographer for the past 25 years and is the recipient of numerous international awards. She has taught photography workshops and instructed at colleges and universities across Canada. Slocan Valley artist Peter Velisek is a painter, not of an observed life, but of an involved life. His work is visceral, not intellectual; a record of the reality of his environment from the heart and gut more than the mind. Velisek’s work also reflects the depth of his understanding of the absurdities of life, his ability to see and paint from more than one perspective at a time and his sense of humour. He lives with his family at the end of the road and off-the-grid. Few understand the immense physical labour and constant work involved to

New act carries consequences


ill the proposed Water Sustainability Act bring B.C.’s water management into the 21st Century? Last Friday the provincial government released a legislative proposal for the new Water Sustainability Act (WSA), which is a major upgrade to the century-old Water Act. The new legislation would add regulation of groundwater, require the consideration of environmental flow needs in water management, enhance the water management framework and provide new tools to respond to water management issues. The province intends that the new legislation will be more flexible and efficient than the Water Act, increase certainty and clarity around surface and groundwater supplies, and enable wider participation in decision-making about water. Starting in 2009, the Ministry of Environment led a policy development process by holding a series of workshops and releasing proposals and regular blog updates. They heard from municipalities, First Nations and industry organizations, as well as over 2,000 citizen submissions. Since 2011, B.C. has been working on the new act, trying to reconcile the very different views offered about licencing, the scope of groundwater regulation, and maintaining river flows. Their work has been cut out for them. Earlier this summer groundwater made the news when the Vancouver Province reported that Nestlé Waters Canada was withdrawing 265 million litres of fresh water every year from a well near Hope—without paying a dime or even measuring and reporting on how much they use. Under the proposed act, all wells would have to be registered and water users (except domestic) would be required to report on use and pay a modest fee. According to Nelson Ja-

z Kettle River Q and A GRAHAM WATT

tel, water stewardship director for the Okanagan Basin water board, “regulating groundwater in the same way as surface water is exactly what needs to happen.” While the pricing scheme still needs to be developed, under current rates Nestlé would have to pay only $228 annually. This has raised some eyebrows, but the proposal recognizes that prices need to increase to cover the costs of administering and managing water licences and approvals. While drinking water is administered by Health Authorities under the Drinking Water Protection Act, there are clear connections between water management planning, source water protection, and water distribution systems. For instance, the 22-member Fife Water Users Community has been on continuous boil-water advisory for years. “We have a huge issue with our drinking water in small community systems,” according to Kathy O’Malley of Fife. “Interior Health Authority has not enabled options for small systems to meet their standards, and we need more technical and financial support to be viable.” A key part of the proposal is improving decision-making, authority and accountability for water management. Many stakeholders requested that B.C. improve water governance arrangements, especially by increasing involvement for communities affected by water management decisions. The proposal does not name a particular governance model such as watershed agencies, but the province will create a water governance ‘framework’ that allows flexible decision-

making solutions to be developed in different regions while retaining ultimate regulatory authority at the provincial level. “That’s fine if the province wants to retain control over water management, as long as they are properly resourced and provide reliable ‘go-to’ people in different regions to support local involvement in water management decisions,” said Grace McGregor, RDKB Area C director and chair of the Kettle River advisory group. “But it’s clear the whole system needs to work better for rural watersheds and community water systems alike.” Jatel said the proposed improvements are a good starting point for the major work of drafting and passing legislation and developing regulations. “This paper signals that the province is taking a leadership role and enabling the conversations that need to happen at the grassroots level to support good decisionmaking.” Comments are due by Nov. 15, which is a tight timeline for stakeholder groups who need to pass comments through committees, councils and boards of directors. “As usual we are forced through a short timeline that doesn’t allow our committees to review material before going to the board,” said McGregor. The legislative proposal paper and other background materials are posted at engage. The advisory group is crafting a response to the proposal and will share ideas about how the proposed change in water laws may affect people and waterways in the Kettle River watershed. Graham Watt is the coordinator of the Kettle River Watershed management plan for the RDKB, and is working with a stakeholder advisory group from across the region to develop the plan. Email

local MP about his projects. “It gives us an opportunity to meet with our federal representative,” said Coun. Bob Kendel. “It gives us a chance to pick his brain and him to pick ours. We asked if he heard anything about infrastructure projects and anything else that might be beneficial to us.” Kendel said the city has been waiting for almost three years for the federal government to make an announcement. Kendel said they also talked to Atamanenko about how best to help people with mental health issues in the city. “Both levels of senior government (federal and provincial) have downloaded a lot of that responsibility onto municipalities,” he said. “Atamanenko said it was an opportune time to get ahold of our local provincial representative (MLA Linda Larson) and the minister responsible to have a discussion on how to lobby the government to come up with better programs.”

Liaison Day at GFSS!


Last Friday, GFSS Grade 11 and 12 classes spent the morning listening to representatives from all over BC who came to share information about their schools with our students. They came to educate our future grad classes about some of our possible college and university prerequisites, tuition costs, and overseas programs, but mostly, they stressed what they could offer you as a student. Some offered smaller class sizes and a more personalized learning environment; others could help you upgrade while you worked on a degree. Despite the huge role other factors, like campus location, program offerings, student services, etc., play in picking a school, the biggest consideration in the end is really what you’re interested in. There were eight schools represented: College of the Rockies, Simon Fraser University, Okanagan College, The University of Northern BC, Thompson River University, The Canadian Forces Royal Military College, Selkirk College, and Trinity Western University. In other words, there was something for everyone on Liaison day. For students it was a chance to ask the questions we wanted answers to, and a chance to ask the critical questions that would make or break a school for us. Maybe you were interested

This Week in Sports


The senior girls’ volleyball team showed a strong team effort in their play day at GFSS on Tuesday, October 15th. The girls won their first game against Boundary Central and continued to fight hard for the duration of their fivegame match. Although it was not an overall win for GFSS, each player put their best foot forward and played a competitive match. The girls then put up a good fight against Stanley Humphries but did not come out with a victory. Despite the losses they faced, the team showed an amazing amount of positivity and determination which became a win in itself. The boys’ soccer playoffs took place at GFSS on Wednesday, October 16th. They played games against Mt. Sentinel, Nakusp, and BCSS. The boys had some difficultly with the strength of their competition, but the overall effort put in was the main focus. During the first game of the day, goalie Tyson Tiller, dislocated his finger and was not able to participate in the following games. Junior player, Troy Frith,

gave students the perfect opportunity to get answers to some very important questions and learn about the potential for our futures.

Knowledge is Power “ We must pick up our books and pens because they are our greatest weapon”

ELENA PLOTNIKOFF “I hate school” is a phrase most sixteen year old kids say on a daily basis. Waking up at an ungodly hour and sitting in a classroom for six hours is not very appealing but while school is not a popular idea amongst teenagers, the concept of education fairs better. Learning is what is going to propel us to a future outside of this town and make us into well rounded and functional members of society. Education is powerful; at least Malala Yousafzai thinks so. Last October a Taliban gunman attempted to kill Malala after her status as an education activist grew. Though the Taliban banned girls from attending school, eleven out of twenty seven girls still attended, Malala included. Her accomplishments ranged from blogging for the BBC

-Malala Yousafzai to being awarded for Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize, creating worry in Taliban leaders. A meeting was held and the Taliban forces unanimously decided she had to be killed. Thankfully, they were not successful in their assassination attempt. Yousafzai was stronger than they anticipated and while she held onto her life, people from around the world were taking notice and offering to treat her. Eventually, she ended up in Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where she stayed until her discharge in January of 2013. Since then sixteen year old Yousafzai has received another surgery to reconstruct her skull, released her memoir titled “I am Malala”, and received a nomination for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. She has done

several interviews, met with important political figures, and continued her fight to grant all girls the right to an education. Malala acknowledges that it is a war she is contending but insists that “you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education”. Knowledge is the most powerful thing that we have and even though we are young, we can be strong and we can create change. “We must pick up our books and pens because they are our greatest weapon” as Malala says. The next time that you resent school for wasting your time, arm yourself with books, wield your pen, and remember that education gives you the potential to achieve greatness, change the world, and kick some most serious butt.

Although victory would not be their’s, GFSS Girls Senior Volleyball players put up a solid defence in a “nailbiter” against Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries

Fabulous Fridays for all ages at the Library GFG

Thank You Maples B&B


We recently had the pleasure of visiting Grand Forks for my son’s wedding. Acting on a recommendation, we chose to stay at The Maples B&B. The owner, Dawna Vandrick, did a wonderful job of making us feel right at home, graciously opening her home to my husband and I and my daughter’s family. The breakfasts she made were divine. It was my grandson’s birthday while we were staying there and Dawna made a special birthday breakfast for him and she also made a birthday cake for him. We were able to celebrate his birthday at the B&B with other family members that came over for the celebration. The wedding day arrived with beautiful weather and we were able to take lovely photos outside in front of The Maples. We highly recommend The Maples B&B if you are looking for a memorable stay in Grand Forks. It is conveniently located within a few blocks from the Art Gallery.

Regards, Louise & Dave Spears and Family

Spray painting spree Also on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at about 11 a.m., police were notified there had been spray painting of graffiti, commonly known as ‘tagging’. The spray painting occurred some time between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11. “A newly refurbished bench on the path leading to the black train bridge as well as some light posts along the same pathway were tagged,” said Lanz. Pills found At 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 15, RCMP received a complaint of a disturbance on 75th Avenue in Grand Forks. “While this matter was being investigated, police found a baggy which contained prescription pills,” said Lanz. “It is unknown who the prescription was for. As a result, the pills were seized.” The pills were OxyContin, which is a drug that is known to be sold on the street, said Lanz. The pills will be destroyed. The disturbance was between two individuals from Trail. Trail trouble maker On Oct. 15 at 8:45 p.m., RCMP checked three people in Grand Forks on Central Avenue as they walked into traffic. “As a result of checking one of these males, it was determined that he had consumed some illegal substances,” said Lanz. “The male was arrested. Some methamphetamines were found on his person.” A 24-year-old male from Trail is being charged with possession of methamphetamine. He was released to await a court date.

GFSS comes up short in playdowns CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) hosted the Kootenay Single A senior boys soccer playdowns on Wednesday (Oct. 16). Nakusp ended up being the overall winner and will represent the region at the provincial championships. Nakusp beat Mount Sentinel from South Slocan 4-1 in the final.

GFSS had a good day with the highlight being a shootout loss to Mount Sentinel. “Our overall play was encouraging as far as effort was concerned,” said GFSS Wolves’ coach Mike Phelan. “There were moments against opponents where the players worked together as a team but it was the inconsistency of team play that needs a lot of work. As a program we need to improve the individual skill level,

game understanding and an attitude that focuses on intelligent playing within a cohesive team structure.” Phelan says it’s a situation where patience is critical to the improvement of the program. “In the short six-week program of our season, we noticed the desire to improve and a willingness to commit to coaching. These individual and team qualities are important to better play in our future seasons.”

The Grand Forks Secondary School senior girls volleyball team saw their first action of the season on Tuesday (Oct. 15). The team hosted Boundary Central (Midway) and Stanley Humphries Secondary (Castlegar) in a play-day. GFSS was close in all their games, beating Boundary once and losing twice. SHSS beat the

Wolves in three straight. “For the most part the girls played well,” said GFSS coach Helen Argue. “The players still have lots of learning of new positions this year and where they need to be on the court. These were our first games of the year so we will take what we learned into our first tournament this weekend.” GFSS plays at a tournament in Kelowna this weekend, Oct. 18 and 19. Results weren’t available at press time.

ance brings to mind a variety of images and a wide spectrum of emotions associated with the activity. There are as many styles of dance as there are individuals who participate. Some dances are specific to certain moves and others simply require imagination. Often times, negative exposure or preconceived notions cause individuals to deny themselves opportunities to engage in dance as a leisure activity. Given the chance, however, people might find that dancing provides an avenue for socializing, exercise and is great for engaging the mind. Dance instructor May Berge wants to teach the jive, waltz and country twostep to those willing to step out of their comfort zone and realize the benefits of partner dancing. Classes will take place on Mondays, Oct. 28 to Nov. 25 from 7-9 p.m. at the Perley School gym. The only equipment necessary is comfortable clothing and shoes. Pre-registration is required by contacting the recreation office.

Jackson Purvis (#18) of the Border Bruins reaches for the puck in the first period of Saturday’s game against Nelson at the Grand Forks Arena.

Bruins fall short against top guns CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The Border Bruins faced the KIJHL’s top team Saturday at home and came away with a one goal loss. The final was 6-5 for the Nelson Leafs, who lead the league with an undefeated 10-0-1-1 record. “There’s definitely a lot of positives to take out of that game,” said Bruins’ head coach Nick Deschenes. The Leafs got off to a quick start, going up 3-0 midway through the first period. Kyle Dolly put the Bruins on the board with a power play marker at 8:43 of the first period, assisted by Franco Colapaolo and goalie Kai McDonald. Tucker Brown brought GF within one at 3-2 a short time later, assisted by Corey Munro and Cam McLennan. The Leafs scored again before Michael Rand found the back of the net for GF at 9:48 of the second to once again cut the Leaf lead to one. Assisting on Rand’s goal were Reid Robertson and Colapaolo. A pair of power play goals by the Leafs, including a late game empty netter, sandwiched a goal from GF’s Max Newton. Dolly picked up his second goal of the game with eight seconds left. Grand Forks outshot Nelson 43-35. McDonald stopped 30 of 35 shots in goal for the Bruins. “Our inexperience hurt us early again,” said Deschenes. “We didn’t come out as intense as we needed to. But we responded the right way by keeping the game in check and battling for 60 minutes.”

Permission slip revised for SD51

Until Oct.31 Until Nov. 15th

School District 51 (Boundary) has received approval from the BC School Trustee Association (BCSTA) legal department on a revised photo permission slip that will soon be sent home for parents in the district to consider signing.

Superintendent of schools Kevin Argue said that a form provided by BCSTA that went out at the beginning of the year to parents wasn’t working. Sources at Boundary School District reported that the original permission form was overly complicated and that less than half of the parents were willing to allow their children’s photos to be used, even for such things as a school yearbook.
