Elk Valley Water Quality Plan Consultation Open Houses Teck is working with communities, First Nations and governments to create an Elk Valley Water Quality Plan that will maintain the health of the watershed and support continued, sustainable mining in the Elk Valley. We Want to Hear From You The objective of the Elk Valley Water Quality Plan is to stabilize and reverse the increasing trend of selenium and other substances related to mining activity in the watershed. The process to develop the plan will include three formal public consultation periods, with the first period taking place from October 28 to November 29. Further public consultation periods will take place in 2014. We are asking for your feedback on the framework we are using to develop the Elk Valley Water Quality Plan. Your input during this public consultation period is an important part of the development of the Plan. More information and an online feedback form are available at

Consultation Open Houses: You are invited to learn more, provide your input and ask questions at a public open house in your community: Elkford Community Conference Centre 750 Fording Drive November 12, 2013 4:30-8:30 p.m. Sparwood Senior Citizen’s Drop-In Centre 101 4th Avenue November 13, 2013 4:30-8:30 p.m. Fernie Senior Citizen’s Drop-In Centre 562 3rd Avenue November 14, 2013 4:30-8:30 p.m. A presentation will begin at 7 p.m. for each open house, followed by a question and answer session.

Making sure your vehicle’s tires are ready for the coming winter ers have a choice of investing in new tires or buying a set of chains. The transportation ministry has a website at chains.html that includes maps of routes affected by winter restrictions,

and tips on how to use tire chains. Stone said that with 60 per cent of B.C. residents living in areas where

winter conditions are not common, he is not considering making winter tires mandatory for all vehicles.

SEPT 16th TO NOV 15th, 2013

By Tom Fletcher Some “all season” tires are good enough for winter roads in B.C., but not all of them. That’s one reason why Transportation Minister Todd Stone has added the topic of tires to a provincial review of highway safety that includes speed limits. “It’s been almost 40 years since the current definition of a winter tire was actually changed, and tire technology has advanced dramatically,

particularly over the last five to 10 years,” Stone said Tuesday. With the popularity of all-season tires and allwheel-drive vehicles, Stone said there is some confusion about what is acceptable for requirements that took effect Oct. 1 on routes that have winter conditions. Those routes have signs advising drivers to use winter tires or carry chains, and police may turn drivers away if they are not properly equipped. True winter tires have

a symbol of a mountain and snowflake on the sidewall. All-season tires with the “M+S” mark to indicate traction in mud and snow are also permissible, but all tires must have a minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm. A quick test can be done using a dime. Point Her Majesty’s head downward and insert the dime in the tire tread. If the top of the head remains visible, the tire is too worn to qualify for winter conditions. Driv-


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 Columbia Garden 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 air-conditioning 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. Columbia Garden 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. Columbia Garden Village provides just that and much, much more. Open daily; call Columbia Garden Village at (250) 341-3350 for more information or to book a tour.

Challenges abound for tourism, but initiatives well underway

Photo submitted

Kathy Cooper, new CEO of Kootenay Rockies Tourism. By Carolyn Grant

As Kathy Cooper officially takes the reins as CEO of Kootenay Rockies Tourism — a position she has been in unofficially since the retirement of Chris Dadson last fall — the tourism industry in this area still faces challenges. Tourism took a hit with the economic collapse of 2008, and Coo-

per says that while there are positive areas, the industry as a whole has not yet fully recovered. “We haven’t made any gains since 2008,” Cooper said. “It’s been a slow climb back up to those levels and we are not there yet.” It is a changing world and one of Cooper’s goals is to make sure Kootenay Rockies Tourism stays abreast of current trends and provides the best opportunities for all its stakeholders to increase revenues. “One of the challenges in the tourism industry is that it has become seriously competitive,” Cooper said. “We compete with other jurisdictions with bigger marketing budgets. It’s global now. The tourism world has shrunk. We don’t just compete with Alberta. We’re competing with Australia, Germany, Asia. Tourism dollars are shrinking and everyone wants a piece of the pie.”

The high Canadian dollar hasn’t helped in recent years as visitors to Canada may hold off waiting for a more advantageous exchange rate, and Canadians themselves travel to other countries to take advantage of the same. But Canadians remain the largest market in the Kootenay Rockies Tourism area. “67 per cent of our revenue comes from Alberta,” Cooper said. “When the dollar is strong and they want to go elsewhere, we lose. But, we are lucky that many of our Albertan visitors have second homes or family and friends in this area and will come no matter what.” Another challenges is that Kootenay Rockies Tourism and the five other destination marketing arms under Tourism British Columbia have not seen any increase in their marketing budgets. “In order to get those

increases we need to see an increase in tourism revenue.” It’s not all challenges, Cooper says. There are some success stories in individual areas. “We are seeing some growth in individual communities and some sectors. Golf has taken a hit and is still not back. There is some increase in festivals and heritage. We’re definitely seeing the U.S. visitors coming back, but we still have some challenges. “As I take the position officially, my goal is to move forward with maintaining a clear vision and objectives. Despite challenges, we want to move forward providing our partners and stakeholders with the best opportunities we can to develop their businesses and increase tourism revenues.” One of the issues going forward is bridging the gap between print and online marketing.

grams such as offer those researching vacations online an opportunity to see brochures about various attractions in the Kootenays. There are 45 brochures up currently and more coming. “It’s just another way to stretch your reach,” Cooper said. “It gets your marketing in the hands of people looking online and research does show that people planning a vacation look first online. When they get a little closer they want that brochure

in their hands. We have to present products in both of these worlds.” The Kootenay app for smart phones was launched two years ago under Dadson’s tenure and has 8,000 downloads in that time. “We just want to continue to bridge the gaps between marketing and innovation. We have a great team with many talents.” Next week, Cooper heads to Rossland for the Kootenay Rockies Tourism AGM. “It will be exciting. We have 80 people reg-

First of all, it is supposed to go in your glove compartment until you park. There was a vehicle with the driver sitting in it, feet up on the dash, in the disabled parking spot, while I had to walk more than a block (with my cane) to get there. When I asked him if he needed that spot, he said it was for his wife who he was waiting for. I went into the bank, looked out the door and saw his wife “running” down the sidewalk to the truck. So which one was handicapped? Hugs: A great big hug to Steve Tersmette of Flashed Carpentry for the exceptional renovations he did for us.  His professionalism and workmanship were outstanding and the finished project is everything we asked for and more.

Slugs: To the vehicle dealership in town that serviced my car. The engine light was on in my car, you charged me $108.90 to put a scope on my car (to find out the problem). You installed a purge solenoid, the cost $211.47, which I paid. I did not even get out of the parking lot and the engine light came back on! Then you put the scope on my car again and you came back and told me it would cost me $700-$800 to fix my car. I am a blonde woman, however not a dumb blonde. All that had to be done, was to disconnect the battery in my car. Shame on you. Slugs: Why is it that 2nd St N has a posted 30km/hour sign yet people and a certain police officer I talked to insist it isn’t? Does the sign that says 30km/hour not mean that you need to drive 30km an hour? Please stay off my rear bumper when I am driving down this street, you are going to cause a serious accident if I have to stop suddenly. Think about it, do you need to get where you are going 2 minutes sooner? If you do, maybe leave your house a bit earlier!!!!

If you have a Hug or a Slug...we’d like to hear it. Simply email us at with your short quips, compliments or complaints. We will print the anonymous submissions for all to see. Be honest, but all we ask is you keep it tasteful. Hugs and Slugs will be printed as space allows, if we miss yours check back next week and you will be bumped to the start of the list.

Local conservation fund helped to preserve ecology around lake

Photo submitted

Lot 48: A valuable ecological investment. Submitted

The conservation of District Lot 48, located on the undeveloped eastern side of Columbia Lake, is hailed as the finest example of multi-faceted cooperation when it comes to conservation in the East Kootenay’s recent history.

It took about two decades of negotiation, discussion and organization, resulting in several agencies working together, from conservation to industry, before the property was officially protected for its ecological and cultural importance. While $2 million in funding support from

Teck Resources helped reach the $7.2 million goal to purchase the property, the NCC received valuable initial support from the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund (CVLCF), managed by the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) in partnership with the Kootenay Conservation

Program (KCP). This fund is derived from a $20 per property tax levy through the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK). “Protecting Lot 48 is essential to maintaining the integrity of the entire east side of the lake forever. This is an incredible win for the conservation commu-

nity in British Columbia, and we couldn’t have succeeded without the support of so many partners,” said Nancy Newhouse, Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Canadian Rockies program manager. The area supports valuable winter range for bighorn sheep, elk and other ungulates, several rare and endangered species, and is a sacred landscape to the Ktunaxa Nation. Lot 48 is adjacent to Columbia Lake Provincial Park, as well as the Columbia Wetlands Wildlife Management Area and the East Side Columbia Lake Wildlife Management Area, effectively ensuring the entire east side of the Columbia River’s headwaters lake is preserved for future generations. “As reviewers, we recognized the exceptional ecological value of Lot 48 and were pleased that the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund could provide this critical initial funding,” said Columbia Valley

Local Conservation Fund Technical Review Committee Chair, Dr. Cameron Gillies. “The value of the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund cannot be overstated. The RDEK showed true leadership in supporting the establishment of the fund, which was truly unique in Canada, and now so many worthwhile projects benefit as a direct result of that leadership including the Columbia Lake – Lot 48 project,” added Dave Hillary Kootenay Conservation Program Manager. The RDEK provides funds for the Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund, an initiative that found its feet when the majority of Columbia Valley taxpayers, via an election referendum when they agreed to spend $20 a year on a special property tax that provides about $230,000 a year, and now goes to a wide variety of conservation and stewardship programs in the valley.

In recognition of the RDEK’s leadership in establishing and administering this Local Conservation Fund, they have been selected as a finalist for the Real Estate Foundation of BC’s Land Awards, with the winner being announced at the Land Awards Gala in Vancouver on October 25.

Final garden workshop coming on Saturday The 6th and final workshop in the One World Garden Series, Can-Do Composting, is coming up Saturday, November 2, 10noon in Kimberley and 3-5pm in Cranbrook. We’re planning a very hands-on experience this month, so if English is not your most comfortable language, it will be manageable to follow this workshop and in the case of chilly weather we’ll all keep warm! In Can-Do Composting, we’ll be learning what kinds of things we can do to get our composts ready for winter and how to keep composting despite the cold weather. A compost in your backyard is an incredibly beneficial nutrient source for your garden – and

it’s a great way to reuse ‘waste’ from your kitchen and yard. The best part about it is that it’s free! This process is simple and relatively easy when you know the tricks to keep things on track. “At this time of the year there are certainly some people out there, myself included, who are overwhelmed with an out of control compost after a season’s worth of feeding it,” remarks Shannon Grey Duncan, project coordinator. “This workshop will be a great chance to bring up troubleshooting questions for our experienced local mentors to help with.” The goal of this workshop series is to increase the local capacity for growing food by offering a place where immigrants or people new to gardening can

learn more about growing food locally while gaining hands-on experience and exchanging skills with local members of the community. This is the final workshop in our 6 part series, and it has been really wonderful to share a season of gardening with many participants since June. “We’ve been fortunate to have different guest garden mentors at each workshop, and this one will be no exception,” says Jessica Windle of Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook. “The wealth of local knowledge is inspiring and the garden is a great place to learn and share, as well as meet new people and get to know our local community gardens.” The Kimberley workshop will be held from 10-noon at the Kimberley Community Allotment Garden, located on Wallinger Ave. beside Coronation Park and in Cranbrook from 3-5pm at the Public

2nd Street South Conceptual Design & Moir Gravel Pit Reclamation Project Open House The City of Cranbrook, in conjunction with Urban Systems, will be hosting the public at an open house on both the conceptual design of the 2nd Street South corridor from Highway 3 to 14th Avenue South and the reclamation plan for the Moir Gravel Pit. The session on the 2nd Street South corridor project is intended to gather public input to provide to Council for decision making purposes. The session on the Moir Gravel Pit is around the plan to redevelop the Moir Pit once the gravel resources have been depleted and the development of an off leash dog park on part of the site in early 2014. Urban Systems representatives and City of Cranbrook staff will be on hand to provide information on both projects including: project concepts and intents, progress to date and next steps. There will be information panels and 3D animated video loops of flyovers of both projects.

Colour and life for winter

There is nothing like a week of continuous fog to give you a taste of what we can expect up ahead, with the winter months just around the corner. There are many techniques people use to keep the winter blues at bay. One of them is to surround yourself with lots of colour from vibrant blooms all around the house. Forcing bulbs is a great way of creating spectacular blooms with very little effort. Probably the most well-known winter bulb is the amaryllis. With the tall stalk, topped off with amazing flowers, this plant makes for a great accent piece in your home as well as an ideal present. Amaryllis are not only for a real plant lover, but also all those people on your list that have everything, and they are a fantastic hostess gift as well. To enjoy their full display for the holiday season, you will have to plant them soon as they will take anywhere between four to ten weeks to bloom. Plant the bulb in a pot with the top third showing above the soils surface. All bulbs hate to be soggy, so ensure you use good potting soil with proper drainage and a pot that has good drainage as well. Heavier clay or ceramic pots are preferred over plastic as they offer some weight to these plants that can be somewhat top-heavy. Place in a well lit area and water occasionally. Growth can be somewhat regulated by temperature. For example, if your plant is growing too quickly and you want it blooming for Christmas, placing it in a cool spare room or cold room will slow it down. If you want to speed it up, then a warmer room or even placing the plant on top of your fridge may help your cause. Amaryllis bloom for a long time - once the plant is finished and the stalk dies back, allow the leaves to grow normally. Once the frost fears are over, put the pot outdoors in a semi-shaded area and fertilize monthly with a well balanced water soluble fertilizer. In late September, stop fertilizing and watering. Once the leaves begin to turn yellow and become floppy, cut them back and bring the pot indoors to store it in a cool room. The temperature should not exceed 17°C. Do not allow it to freeze and do not water it. After about two months, bring the pot back out into a warm, well-lit area and start watering once the new shoots begin to appear. Your amaryllis should begin to do its thing for you all over again. There are other great options if you want to try bringing some of your bulb favourites indoors in the winter.The bulbs most commonly grown indoors are daffodils, paperwhites, tulips, hyacinths and crocuses, but other types of bulbs can be ‘forced’ as well. Look for the “Good for Forcing” label on the package or ask your garden centre experts which ones are best. Most bulbs need a cooling off period, ranging from a day or two to 12 to 16 weeks, whether kept in the fridge or a basement cool room . When the time is right the bulbs are brought into warmth and light, triggering the formation of leaves and blooms. Allow approximately three to four weeks for blooms to develop. Plant anywhere from the beginning of October to end of November for flowers in January to April. Bulbs are self-contained little units, they have all the food for developing leaves and blooms and do not need to be fertilized during forcing. While they are most often planted in potting soil, bulbs will grow in just about anything, including decorative rocks with just a bit of water. In any case, they must have proper drainage or they will rot. Keep them evenly moist, not wet, and not allowing them to dry out. As the days get shorter, get creative with bulbs and bring some colour and life into your home. Or start a holiday gift giving tradition that will bring smiles all season. Til next time… happy growing. Submitted by Kerstin

Judy Collins plays the Key City Theatre on November 6.

audience including poet/ musician Leonard Cohen – and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman. In 1968 Judy Collins released her Wildflowers album which won a Grammy for her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” and was subsequently entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 1975 Judy’s version of “Send in the Clowns” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim won song of the year at the Grammy awards. Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present. Judy has authored several books, including the inspirational memoir Sanity & Grace, focusing on the death of her only son and the healing process following the tragedy; it speaks to all who have endured the sorrow of losing a loved one before their time. She is also co-director, with Jill Godmillow, of an Academy Awardnominated film about Antonia Brico, the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world—and Judy’s classical piano teacher when she was young. Judy Collins, now 71, is still writing, performing, and nurturing fresh talent. She plays 80 to100 dates a year around the country. Judy Collins, a relentlessly creative spirit, is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart. Judy Collins performs the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook on Wednesday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 plus GST and are available at the Key City Theatre box office or charge by phone at 250-426-7006.

Friendship and family in Visiting Mr. Green Submitted

Cranbrook Community Theatre (CCT) brings us a comedy and poignant drama about friendship, family and forgiveness in their upcoming production, Visiting Mr. Green. The story is about an elderly Jewish Manhattanite, Mr. Green, who has withdrawn from life following his wife’s recent death. Ross Gardiner, a young corporate executive, is found guilty of reckless driving after almost hitting the elderly Mr. Green, and a community service order is imposed upon Ross: he must spend the next six months making weekly visits to Mr. Green.

What starts off as a comedy about two people who resent being in the same room together develops into drama, as family secrets are revealed and old wounds are opened. Director Tanya Laing Gahr, brings a small apartment in New York City to the stage where two local actors, Michael Grossman and Jerrod Bondy will have you shedding tears of laughter and empathy as they portray the tale of Mr. Green and Ross. “This is a play I’ve wanted to direct for almost ten years,” said Laing Gahr. “It blends humour and pathos so beautifully and I think the themes will resonate strongly with Cran-

brook theatre-goers. And the way Michael and Jerrod absolutely embody these characters is simply brilliant. They astonish me every rehearsal with their willingness to take chances and connect to this piece. They are outstanding actors.” Visiting Mr. Green will run for 10 nights at the Studio/Stage Door, 11 – 11th Ave. S., Cranbrook, November 29 & 30, December 4-7 and December 11-14, 2013. All shows start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13 members and $15 for non-members and are available at Lotus Books, located at 33 S 10th Avenue. CCT has been entertaining Cranbrook and

Simply beautiful for the holiday season Glittering decorations, shimmering fabrics, sparkling lights — the Christmas holidays are synonymous with radiance. This radiance can

also apply to your skin, your hair, your look and your smile! Begin your beauty treatments right away in order to shine at all the parties you’ve A11 been invited to. Radiant complexion True beauty starts with a radiant complexion. As well as your daily routine, try a microdermabrasion, which is a treatment that exfoliates the skin and stimulates collagen production, giving an

incredible glow to your complexion. Apply a progressive self-tanning cream once or twice a week for a natural looking tan. Glamorous hair Be sure to spoil your hair as well. The key word: hydration. When next at the hairdress-

er’s, be sure to ask for a natural oil treatment, the ultimate for a glamorous mane of hair. Where hairstyles are concerned, the boyish look is back as well as the fishtail braid. Otherwise, lots of volume and ultra-smooth texture are musts.

The latest in makeup For holiday makeup, a shopping trip is on the order of the day so that you have all the articles necessary for creating the very latest in looks: coppery, smoky eyes; cashmere lips (coloured lipstick with a softened effect); the nude look

with tones on the cold side; golden eye liner; and accentuated eyebrows. Dazzling smile Lastly, think about a whitening treatment for your teeth in order to restore that dazzling smile.

You are invited to attend an introductory public information meeting which will initiate the Elk Valley Official Community Plan (OCP) planning process. This process is intended to result in the adoption of a new OCP which will cover the northern two-thirds of Electoral Area A, excluding the Fernie Alpine Resort area, the Island Lake Lodge area, the City of Fernie, the District of Sparwood, and the District of Elkford. The new Elk Valley OCP will replace the existing Elk Valley Land Use Strategy and the Fernie Area Land Use Strategy. Topics to be covered at the meeting include an introduction to OCPs, an overview of the expected planning process, and a discussion of the intended outcomes. Meeting attendants will be offered an opportunity to share their initial thoughts on the process and to identify important topics that should be addressed in the plan. All interested parties are invited to attend the introductory meeting: Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Hosmer Community Centre Front Street & 6th Avenue, Hosmer BC - and Thursday, November 7th, 2013 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Fernie Family Centre 521 – 4th Avenue, Fernie BC The meeting will be held on two separate dates (November 5th and November 7th) in two separate locations (Hosmer and Fernie) to accommodate residents throughout the plan area. The same information will be presented at both meetings so participants only need to attend one of the two meetings. For further information, please contact Matt Gunn, Planner, at 250.489.6903 or toll free at 1.888.478.7335 or 19 - 24th Avenue South, Cranbrook BC V1C 3H8 Phone: 250-489-2791 Toll Free: 1-888-478-7335 Email: Website:

Melody Motors is pleased to announce the appointment of

Kevin Clark as our new General Manager

Kevin brings a wealth of experience to the position, with over 26 years in the automotive business. In that time, he has been part of the success of growing a dealership of 12 employees into 4 dealerships, employing over 300 people. Kevin credits his customer focused philosophy with this success. He says, “We will do whatever it takes to get you into the vehicle you want, but the relationship doesn’t end there. Once you are a customer you are a customer for life. We value that relationship and will use our after sale service to prove that point.” Kevin believes that this philosophy is a particularly good fit for the Kootenays. That is why, after being good friends with Jim Chale for 25 years, he is excited to become his partner and settle in the area. Kevin encourages you to come in and see for yourself the Melody Motors difference. He says, “I guarantee you, you won’t be disappointed.”

Obituaries OBITUARY

Owen Sherratt June 13, 1929 – October 24, 2013 Owen Sherratt, 84, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the F.W. Green Memorial Home where he was staying temporarily while recuperating from a fall he’d had a few weeks earlier. Owen was born in England on June 13, 1929 to Maggie and Herb Sherratt. He moved to Canada when he was 6 weeks old. He was raised in Coleman, Alberta. He worked with his dad at the Red and White General Store in Coleman and learned to butcher, which served him well in later years. He moved to Cranbrook on his own to start work at CPR at the age of 15. He continued to work for the railroad for the next 41 years and retired in 1985. He spent more than 4 decades in Cranbrook. It was during this time he met and married his best friend Muriel (nee Wallace) in 1951 and then shared the next 60 years with her. All 5 of their children were born and raised in Cranbrook. Owen spent countless hours as a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles and was their secretary treasurer for more than 20 years. He was very proudly inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame. Owen and Muriel bought their dream property in the early 70’s at Kootenay Lake in Boswell, BC. They spent many years making it into a beautiful place for all family and friends to gather. They moved permanently out to the lake in 1992. While they loved the lake, Owen thoroughly enjoyed almost 20 years of being a snowbird, going south to enjoy their winters in California. It was in 2007 that they returned to Cranbrook as age and health were catching up to both of them. Owen was predeceased by his wife Muriel in 2011 and spent the last year and a half surrounded by many good friends at Joseph Creek Care Village. Owen was very social, so Joseph Creek was perfect for him. He loved a visit with family and friends, played a great crib game, was the Chinese Checkers champion, learned to run a computer (for e-mail and solitaire) and enjoyed a good game of Mexican Train or dice with any and all. He will be missed by many. Left to mourn his passing are his 5 children Kay (Ken) Epp, Irene (Jerry) Bischler, Glen (Lou) Sherratt, Jean (Kelly) Easton, Sandra (Travis) Preston, grandchildren and great grandchildren Connie (Ron), Jayden and Carter White, Jamie (Courtnay) Epp, Gary (Danielle) and Wyatt Bischler, Troy (Lindsay) and Brody Bischler, Stephen (Emily) Hutchinson, Jason Sherratt, Christian Hutchinson, Kristi Sherratt and Quinn Preston and his faithful canine companion, Zoey. There will be no service at this time, but a family celebration will be held at a later date. Memorial donations in honour of Owen can be made to the East Kootenay S.P.C.A., PO Box 2, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 4H6. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at:

Coming Events Friends and family of Raymond Jenks would like to invite you to a fundraising event on Saturday November 9th 2013 at the Kimberley Elks Hall starting at 7:00. Ray was born and raised in Kimberley and for last few years resided in High River Alberta. He lost all he had in the High River flood and while in temporary living quarters he was called to Edmonton for a life saving liver transplant, which was done on Oct 3rd 2013. He will now be required to stay in Edmonton for an extended period to be monitored and treated further. To take away some of the financial pressures he will incur friends and family are hoping you will join us and participate in the silent auction, 50/50 draw, and enjoy some great music by SKETCH and Friends. Any funds raised will go a long way in assisting Ray and are appreciated more than you can imagine.
