Maximenko first out of the gate for new riding CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

She may have a similar name as the man she hopes to replace, but Margaret Maximenko is looking at building her own name in federal politics. On Nov. 4, Maximenko announced her intention to run for the NDP nomination in the newly named riding South Okanagan West Kootenay (SOWK). The federal riding is currently called B.C. Southern Interior and represented by NDP Member of Parliament (MP) Alex Atamanenko, who recently announced he was retiring at the end of his current term. “I’ve been a long time activist,” said Maximenko. “I came to Canada as an immigrant at the age of nine; I understand what this country has to offer and what it has provided the citizens of this country for a long time.

I’ve been watching that disintegrate and it’s been causing me some distress. We can do better. I don’t believe I have all the answers – but I believe I can be part of the solution.” Maximenko said she’s been recruited many times over the years to go into federal politics, and she’s also been a recruiter. “I think it’s a great opportunity to represent this area,” she said. “I have a lot of experience in the role of representing constituents. The time is right for me.” Maximenko grew up in a political family with a strong political culture. She was 16 when she was recruited by Stanley Orrice to run her first campaign. “The bug was set,” she said. “Although I didn’t get back into it in a big way until 1986 when I began more campaign work, it snowballed from there.” In 1990, Maximenko was

nominated and won for Area C (Christina Lake) director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and she really enjoyed that time in office. “That was a wonderful job with great opportunities,” she said. “Through that I was selected as the local government spokesperson for the commission on resources and the environment, which Mike Harcourt and Stephen Owen set up to attempt to quell the war in the woods.” The commission was a multistake holder process that lasted over two years and Maximenko was selected to represent the five districts that made up the southeastern quarter of the province.” Maximenko was born in Oakland, California and moved to Grand Forks at the age of nine with her family. She began her business career as a property manager at the

age of 20. With her husband, she eventually ended up operating a retail operation, three contracting companies and a manufacturing plant, which employed over 100 people over four years. Maximenko knows that taking over from Atamanenko will be a daunting task for anyone, but she is eager to try. “Alex Atamanenko leaves an amazing legacy that would be my honour to continue,” she said. “Alex has served the constituents of the BC Southern Interior with determination and grace and I believe he has the most effective track record of any MP in our corner of the world.” Maximenko adds that part of the reason she is announcing her candidacy so early is because Atamanenko has said he will work with the NDP candidate.

POLICE BRIEFS Dumping garbage On Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 5:48 p.m., RCMP received a report of willful damage from the Gilpin Road area of Grand Forks. “There was a complaint of people dumping a considerable amount of garbage out on a property,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. The case is still under investigation. Throwing snowballs at car At 7:24 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5, police received a complaint about young people throwing snowballs at cars near the black train bridge on the Kettle River. “Three snowballs struck the vehicle,” said Harrison. “Thankfully, there was no damage or accidents resulting from it.” The three boys were located by RCMP and spoken to. “They were given a very stiff warning about the dangers of their actions and the fact that they could’ve caused an accident where someone could’ve gotten hurt,” said Harrison.

The community ranked 118th, bettering its rank of 100 from last year. Grand Forks does have some Kootenay company at the bottom of the spectrum, with nine Kootenay communities ranked below the city.

Double delight

he arrival of cold weather in Grand Forks is often bad news for people whose living accommodations leave them exposed to the elements. Winter weather is a difficult mantle for most to take up, but not having a warm place to go at night makes it worse. But this winter there is some good news to accompany the chill and the white stuff: Boundary Emergency and Transition Housing Society’s (BETHS) extreme weather shelter is now open for the winter at their new location in the Multiple Agency Accommodation Project (MAAP) building. Warm beds are secured for another season. And, coupled with Whispers of Hope opening up at its new location in the same building on Riverside Drive, the dark days of winter are looking brighter for those on the street. Located in the rear of the building, Whispers will operate a soup kitchen to warm the insides of those in need, with a thrift store up front selling used clothing and other items, the proceeds helping to run the community kitchen.

second opinion



feel a little sorry for Harper’s former chief of staff Nigel Wright, whom the media has lately described as having been “thrown under the bus” by the Prime Minister. I don’t feel quite as sorry for him though as for my late cousin Vito. Mr. Wright, in truth, was merely fired. When Vito had a similar fallout with his boss, Primo Violinista, he too was thrown under a bus. A real bus. Like Mr. Wright, Vito had been a successful businessman before becoming Primo’s right hand man. In Vito’s case, by businessman I mean he ran a collection agency for several used car

dealers in Montreal and worked as a bouncer at Le Chat Gris, a disco bar. By disco bar I mean a sleazy lounge that served as a front for Primo’s trade in bootleg cigarettes and highjacked booze. Mr. Wright was of course a much more successful man than Vito; he was wealthy, highly thought of, intelligent. However, he was apparently just as ignorant as Vito when it came to the subtle use of language employed by elected officials and/or hoodlums, both of whom must protect themselves from the slightest appearance of wrong doing. Both might occasionally hear their superiors say, “make this go away” or “do what is necessary” or “take care of him” perhaps accompanied by “I don’t want to know.” To persons unskilled in

the nuances of political/ criminal doublespeak, those kind of statements are open to interpretation. In Mr. Wright’s case, he apparently interpreted a statement to mean that he should write Mr. Duffy a check for $90,000, thereby making him go away happy. Probably, given Mr Wright’s wealth and status, he received an appropriate punishment for his mistake: some embarrassment and humiliation. Vito’s mistake, while similar, was not punished as lightly. Primo sent Vito down to the office of his transportation company to settle scores with Nicky, the company manager who Primo believed had been skimming money. According to testimony at Primo’s trial, he told Vito to “take care of Nicky; make

him go away.” Vito dutifully gave Nicky five thousand dollars and a bus ticket to Winnipeg. When Primo heard the story he sent two other employees to pick up Vito and “instruct everybody how to make a nice pavement pizza.” They were more familiar with Primo’s colourful language and threw Vito under the wheels of the next Greyhound Winnipeg Express. Primo was acquitted of course. Not enough evidence; it was all just hearsay. Prime Minister Harper will no doubt also remain unscathed for the same reason. Plus, replacements for men like that are hard to find. It takes a certain kind of person to throw a loyal employee under a bus. Jim Holtz is a Boundarybased writer.

long. It’s time to eradicate herbicides and pesticides, never mind noxious weeds. Ridding weeds may be labour intensive, but that may be the best way, never mind fining people for weeds on their property. Organize vol-

Thumbs up to the Clifton family

Thumbs down to Daylight Savings Time. I don’t like turning all my clocks back and forth twice a year. Thumbs up to Danny and Ray at Buy-Low Foods for their generous donation of tuques and mitts to sell at the Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop, just in time for winter. Thank you Buy-Low. Thumbs up to Sandra Owens for donating her contest prize to Boundary Community Food Bank—much appreciated. Thumbs up for the honest person that returned my hip bag to the nurse’s desk in the hospital. Thank you very much. Thumbs up to Ken for donating the wonderful collectible Department 56 Winter Silhouette figurines, Snow Babies and Angels to the Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thumbs down to the City of Grand Forks for allowing a building with a southwestern exterior that belongs in Osoyoos to be built right downtown at Fourth and Central. Our theme is “heritage.” All buildings built in the downtown core are in the development permit area and have to be approved by the city. Why didn’t the city insist that the heritage theme be followed? Thumbs up to the group of local Riverside residents who have cleaned up squatter campsites up the Granby River on more than one occasion. Thank you for helping to keep our environment clean safe and healthy for everyone, but especially the children who use the beaches of the Granby River. Thumbs up to the newly painted authentically red fire hydrants in town. Thumbs up to Grand Forks Home Hardware for choosing Whispers of Hope as their October charity of the month. Thumbs down to the departure of our Border Bruins coach. You showed a true interest in our team and it showed. But good luck in Trail, they are lucky to have you. Thumbs up to the tireless volunteers and generous donors who brought about the paving of the section of the Trans Canada Trail to the Nursery train bridge. What a wonderful asset to our community. Thumbs down to the Gazette for not doing its due diligence in regards to spell checking. Thumbs down to the person or persons who continually steal pages out of the newspapers in the library. The librarians are more than happy to photocopy any pages that you require, for free. There is no need to steal. We all want to read the paper and do the crossword puzzle. Thumbs up to Nick Deschenes for his great job motivating and coaching our own Border Bruins; to put them on the road to even greater success this season. Congratulations and continued success to Nick in his new job. Thumbs down to the fast food establishment that has once again shorted our family on food while going through the drive through. Maybe your employees don’t care that we’ve had to

drive back to your restaurant on more than one occasion to pick up the rest of our food orders, but I hope your boss is reading this so he/she understands that this has become a common event. I bet we’re not the only ones wasting gas coming and going, let alone being stuck eating cold food. Perhaps everyone should stop while in the drive-thru and hold up traffic while we all check our orders. Thumbs up to people who actually stop at a stop sign. Thumbs down to the person who was in the housewares section of a store and then proceeded to sneeze all over the merchandise. Haven’t you ever heard of covering your mouth? Yuck. Thumbs up to the Clifton family for their generous legacy to the Boundary Hospital that enabled the construction of a landing pad for the helicopter. Thumbs down to Halloween. What exactly are we supposed to be celebrating, anyway? Thumbs up to Nadine Nevocshonoff for her uplifting letter to the editor. It is time someone had the intestinal fortitude to take this city to task for the way they squander taxpayer money. Thumbs down to the people who bring their small children to the hockey games and let them run from one end of the arena to the other during the game. Thumbs down to adult children that are still dependent on their parents. Thumbs up to the lady who stopped my truck to let me know there was a problem with my rear wheel. If not for her, my wheel could have fallen off. Also, to Tom for fixing it. Thumbs up to the fine young gentleman that paid for the toy a young boy was buying at Extra Foods. Thumbs up to the City of Grand Forks for the beautiful flower baskets around town and for maintaining the cleanliness of the city streets and parks.

An admission on climate change Humans now play the lead part in climate change and their influence is dramatic. Billions of tons of carbon pollution are put into the atmosphere annually with catastrophic impacts.


s the recent admission by Danielle Smith, leader of the Wildrose Party in Alberta a sign that right of centre politicians in Canada are starting to realize that they can’t deny what is happening as a result of global warming.

Rousing the Rabble ROY RONAGHAN

On Oct. 25 Smith, a professed Libertarian, isaid, “I accept that climate change is a reality. I accept that there is a human influence on it. I leave the debate about the details to the science about (to) what extent it is and how fast it is occurring.” The statement is soft but it is an indication of a major change of thinking by a party leader who lives in Alberta where the production of oil from the tar sands and gas from fracking are huge economic drivers and polluters. Smith may have changed her position on climate change by reading the 36-page report published recently by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Perhaps she did read it and was convinced by what it says. The panel of scientists who wrote the report gathered information on global warming and weather patterns from scientists around the world. They sifted through thousands of pages looking for commonalities among the findings. Their conclusions were: that the warming of the climate is unequivocal; that human influence on the climate system is clear; and that changes in temperature, precipitation, weather extremes, and sea level are imminent. The information is truly daunting. Humans now play the lead part in climate change and their influence is dramatic. Billions of tons of carbon pollution are put into the atmosphere annually with catastrophic impacts. The oceans are warming and becoming more acidic. Extreme weather events are occurring with greater frequency and they are more destructive. Land-based ice in the form of glaciers and polar icecaps is melting and causing an increase in sea levels. People who continue to deny that climate change is real will argue that there is really nothing to worry about. The earth has been warming and cooling for millions of years. However, there is a difference this time. It has taken only 100 years to push the temperature up by almost a degree. Four days after Smith’s admission on Oct. 25, the B.C. government announced the signing of the Pacific Coast Action Plan, an agreement with Washington, Oregon and California that promises a coordination of their actions to fight climate change. Premier Christy Clark did not attend the signing ceremony. Mary Polak, Environment Minister, attended in her place. Polak is reported to have said that the agreement was “great news.” It may well be if the states and the province actually take action . Clark is rather lukewarm on initiatives to deal with climate change in B.C. She, deputy premier, Rich Coleman, and now Gordon Wilson, are busy marketing liquified natural gas (LNG), an industry that could eventually produce create more greenhouse gas emissions that the Alberta tar sands operation. Climate change has presented us with challenges that we have never had before and technological solutions are being sought and their is a heightened interest in geoengineering. Two technologies that are being discussed are carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and solar radiation management (SDR). CDR entails the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere; SDR entails the reflection of inbound sunlight. Both avoid the real issue which is the production of our carbondependent society which produces the greenhouse gases, and neither has been assessed in terms of their risks. Ordinary Canadians must not lose sight of the key message in the IPCC report. We must reduce the billions of tonnes of carbon we put into the atmosphere annually.

Letters A7

to the editor

Fracking proves to be contempt and a crime against humanity To the Editor: My heartfelt thanks to all who oppose fracking for gas and oil, and especially those who are making the effort to join the brave souls in the New Brunswick protest. I am surprised and disgusted by the Canadian media and their portrayal of fracking as a native issue. Even CBC Radio, which should know better, falls into that bracket. Fracking is a huge concern for everyone and every thing. We are using fresh water that is essential for all life. Water that is supplied free by nature, and is our most precious resource and we are deliberately poisoning it and injecting it into our aquifer. What stupidity. If we factor in the cost to produce the oil and gas and shipping it, and dealing with the carbon produced by using the product, and remembering fossil fuels are only a convenience, we can see that free water is a far better deal. There is a lot of energy spent comparing the shipment of oil and gas by pipeline, rail and truck and safety concerns inherent in those systems. I submit that fracking is the far greater danger but is kept off focus to protect the fracking industry. Our B.C. premier is promoting extracting and shipping the gas product and fracking by default, as the solution for short-term financial gain. I submit that poisoning essential fresh water for short-term financial gain is criminal contempt and a crime against humanity. One further observation—the aquifer we are poisoning is a part of a continuous aquifer that runs all the way down to and through New Mexico and some of which surfaces in Chihauhau state in Mexico. Not a nice thing to do to our neighbours. Thank you. Let’s spread the word. Jack Blower, Grand Forks

The answer to the drug problem is not prison To the Editor: Well, Beverley, where do I start? How about your statement, “marijuana and other addictive drugs?” It is a scientific fact that marijuana is not addictive, has never in all of recorded history caused a death and is no more available than pharmaceuticals, alcohol or tobacco, which kill tens of thousands of Canadians a year. You say that you have seen first hand the part marijuana has played in people’s descent into criminality, but I would like to know how large of a part alcohol played into your gateway theory, because that is all that it is, a theory. I find it amazing in this day and age that people such as yourself remain as ignorant and myopic about the subject of marijuana. It’s time that you stop beating the ignorance

drum and come face to face with the fact that what you have been scared into believing about marijuana is, and has always been, a lie, constructed and perpetuated with the sole purpose of control in mind. Adults have a right to choose for themselves what is right for them and, as for the young ones, the onus rests with the parents to guide and educate. This idea that marijuana is more prevalent than any other drug is ridiculous. Look into the scourge that is the pharmaceuticals and tell me you still feel the same. Drugs in all their forms are a part of our society, like it or not. The answer to the drug “problem” is not prison, it’s education and you, Beverley, could use some schooling.

Roundabout traffic talk

To the Editor: It’s a little over a century since the U.K.’s first circular junction was introduced at Letchworth Garden City in 1909. And since then thousands more have been installed up and down the country and around the globe. The U.S. took longer to adopt the quirky interloper but over the past decade or so it has been replacing traffic lights with roundabouts faster than you can say multi-exit junction. At the turn of the millennium it had a few hundred roundabouts but now has over 3,000. This can probably be attributed to the fact that all the research shows that circular junctions are a lot safer than crossroads governed by traffic lights. According to the American Department of Transportation, replacing crossroads with roundabouts can result in a 90 per cent fall in the number of deaths, a 76 per cent reduction in injuries and a drop of 35 per cent when it comes to crashes. Such collisions that do occur are likely to be less serious. You can always shoot a red light at speed but even the rashest boy racer needs to slow down to negotiate a roundabout. Couple that with the fact that crashes tend to involve side swipes rather than head-on collisions and the arguments for roundabouts over crossroads becomes more compelling still. In addition to being safer than traffic lights they are also greener. Not only does it take more than $90,000 a year to power and maintain a set of traffic lights, according to The Economist magazine, they also force drivers to

stop and start more often with inevitable consequences for fuel consumption. Kevin Beresford, founder and president of the U.K. Roundabout Appreciation Society, reckons the roundabout’s place in national affections is something to do with instincts deep in the psyche. “Unlike fascist, robotic traffic lights where we are told when to stop and go, the roundabout allows us to show one another our own British driving decorum,” he says. “We approach the island at our own chosen speed in the lane of our choice. Cooperating and queuing accordingly with our fellow drivers we wait for a gap and join the gentle gyratory flow in our own time, signaling our intentions and leaving at our chosen exit.” Beresford argues that roundabouts are often more than circular junctions. “There’s nothing more expensive than a roundabout. You can put anything on one. I’ve seen fountains, statues, trains, boats and planes. Even windmills. That’s the beauty of them. “It’s the aesthetic quality of them that appeals to me. A lot of roundabouts reflect what goes on in the area from an industrial point of view. If you go past the Longbridge car plant you’ll see a roundabout decorated with a Mini Cooper made up of flowers. In mining areas you get miners’ wheels. Another has a huge miner’s Davy lamp on it. I’m sure if Andy Warhol were alive today he’d have a giant can of Campbell’s soup on one.” Peter Smith, Grand Forks

Helping each other to pay for freedom

To the Editor: “Let’s not forget, there is a price for freedom.” The price for freedom is sanity. It is not sane to repay violence with violence. Violence is insanity. What do people need? Let them make their request and negotiate. Let’s help each other, not smother freedom. Nadine Nevocshonoff, Grand Forks

USCC Ladies Organization

Traditional Borshch & Pie Luncheon


End of an era in GF To the Editor: Every Thursday evening 25 people gather at the Grand Forks Royal Canadian Legion to play bingo. These people are regulars—they never miss. They show up with their good luck charms and bingo blotters, buy the same combination of cards and settle in for a variety of games, including the double tennis match and four corners plus a line. The room is full of excitement. However, the regular caller is retiring and no one has stepped forward to fill this extremely important role. Without a caller there is no bingo. The end of an era is upon us. If four people agreed to work one Thursday night per month the bingo would continue. The job is quite simple and the crowd is very forgiving of errors. I volunteer at the bingo and sell cards to the players. I see the smiles on their faces, the greetings they give to each other, and the rituals they follow. It will be a sad day in Grand Forks if bingo ends. Please contact Ralph White at 250442-3038 for more information. If you can say “Under the N, 42,” we have a job for you.

Delving into the matters of the regional district

On Nov. 6, Grand Forks Secondary student Avery Nordman shadowed Gazette reporter Craig Lindsay for the day. Nordman was fortunate enough to take part in an interview with Grace McGregor, Area C (Christina Lake) director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB). Nordman shadowed Lindsay as part of a school project.


Kettle River Watershed Plan Gazette: What is happening with the Kettle River Watershed Plan? The Kettle River Watershed committee has been meeting regularly and is discussing plans for the watershed. “Right now, we’re putting together a study to say ‘Okay, what is it we need to do to ensure clean water for the future,’” said McGregor. “And to make sure agriculture, for instance, has enough water to grow crops or do the kind of things they need to do.” Gazette: What kind of challenges do you see coming up? “There are lots of challenges,” said McGregor. “We in the Boundary area have been very accustomed to turning on the tap and having water there. We probably take a lot of it for granted. I

think it’s going to be difficult to cut back on consumption of water.” Gazette: Do you see ways of getting awareness out? “We are working on having community meetings throughout the Boundary so everyone can come and share their ideas and talk about what it is or what small differences they can make,” said McGregor. She said it’s important when you’re asking people to change their behaviour, that it doesn’t cost them a lot of money. “It’s easier for them to buy in if it doesn’t cost them.” Upcoming plans Gazette: What kind of plans do you have for Christina Lake? “We’re doing a venture capital committee going right now, and that just started,” said McGregor. “We’ve got a gateway committee that brings all the community non-profit groups together. They sit at the table and re-

port to each what they need to do better and for the community to prosper.” It’s not about making Christina Lake bigger, she added. “We don’t want to be a Kelowna. Christina Lake wants to keep the integrity of the community. There’s a balance there and we all sit at the table and work on keeping that balance.” Issues Gazette: What are some issues facing Christina Lake? • Senior’s housing “Right now we’re talking about senior’s housing,” said McGregor. “We’ve had a group of volunteers working on senior’s housing for seven years now. It’s been a tough go. I don’t know where that’s going to go.” • Walking bridge Gazette: How are the plans coming to fix the walking bridge? How bad of shape is it? “That’s been in the works for the past few years,” said

McGregor. “The reason for that is, if you walk across the bridge as it is right now, and you’re a school child and there’s slush on the road and a logging truck goes by, you’ll probably wear it.” She said the current bridge was not friendly for seniors, for scooters or wheelchairs. The walking area isn’t covered and it’s not protected from the roadway. McGregor said the community relies heavily on walking and it’s important to have friendly trails that connect throughout Christina Lake. “Quite frankly, the Ministry of Transportation, which is in charge of the bridge, doesn’t have the money to upgrade the walking part of the bridge. “Because it doesn’t need replacing, it’ll be a long before that happens.”

Wednesday, November November 13, 13, 2013 2013 Grand Grand Forks Forks Gazette Gazette Wednesday,


Strictly speaking with city’s mayor On Nov. 6, Grand Forks Secondary student Avery Nordman shadowed Gazette reporter Craig Lindsay for the day. Nordman was fortunate enough to be able to take part in an interview with Mayor Brian Taylor.


In general Gazette: Do you work in City Hall? “I have had an office in City Hall from time to time,” said Taylor. “But in the last situation I used it as a council office and shared it with the councilors. I find it really doesn’t help me to sit around City Hall. I work better on my phone and on the Internet. City Hall doesn’t generally take messages for me unless it’s a serious situation. They have people call me directly.” Taylor said when he meets with residents he just uses the general meeting rooms at City Hall. Gazette: Do you get a lot of calls? “It depends on what’s going on,” said Taylor. “When the fire happened, I was getting calls every five minutes. Generally, when things are quiet, I get the odd complaint about sidewalks and things. It’s not abused very much.” Gazette: What are some of the ideas you’ve thought of to improve Grand Forks? “We’re trying to get young people more involved,” said Taylor. “I thought electronic voting would be good for that. But some of the things coming forward right now about the safety of that is making it questionable. I thought if young people could vote on their cell phone in some kind of secure process we’d get more to vote.” MAPP project Gazette: How is the Multi Agency Accommodation Project (MAAP) coming along? “Let me go back to the start,” said Taylor. “Originally, there was temporary shelter housing in the church. We had a group of citizens who basically came forward to find something

more permanent. “They started to talk to Habitat for Humanity and the Whispers of Hope people and there was leadership that came out of each group.” The three organizations, which all help out with disadvantaged people in the community, were able to strike a deal with the city for a property near the Granby River. “At city hall, we knew the building on the river was for sale,” said Taylor. “We have an unwritten policy to try to pick up as much land near the river as possible and keep it in the community. We made an offer on the property and purchased it. We worked out an agreement with this group to function out of that building and develop services for downtown people.” Currently, both Whispers of Hope Thrift Store and soup kitchen are open to the public as is BETHS extreme weather shelter. Habitat for Humanity’s office and ReStore building is expected to be finished in the spring. Gazette: What is some of the resistance the MAAP project is receiving from some members of the community? “We had a delegation appear in council who were concerned about traffic, about the appearance of disenfranchised people, people who may be homeless, or may have substance abuse issues or mental health issues, that are already in the park (by the river),” said Taylor. “They saw people sleeping in the park and drugs being sold, that kind of thing. What I told them, by bringing more people into the area we aren’t going to be increasing the number of incidences. Those things occur because there is no one there.” Taylor said there are many

misconceptions about the type of people that will be helped by the project. “There not all thieves and drug addicts,” he said. “It’s a small portion.” Taylor added that the complaints were balanced by the support from the nearest neighbour, who saw it as a positive move to clean up that part of town and get something going for this group that wasn’t on the corner. Deer situation Gazette (Avery): What’s your opinion on the deer situation? Any upcoming plans? Taylor said he had previously chaired the deer committee for four years, but had passed that onto Coun. Gary Smith. “I have some very strong opinions of it that aren’t shared by council,” said Taylor. “The culling, for instance, doesn’t make a lot of sense to reduce the herd without dealing with the underlying problem of why this is happening. “We know we’ve created an oasis of food and safety here. The predators don’t come to town to chase them around. They don’t have dogs to worry about anymore. We grow things like mountain ash, one of their winter feeds, and cedar, another one of their winter feeds. They love people’s roses as well.” Taylor said the environment in Grand Forks would just attract deer back again. Another problem with culling is the potential for lawsuits and trouble from activist groups such as PETA and Lifeforce. Also brought up as a possible solution for the deer problem was the possibility of handing out fines for people who feed deer in the city. “But they’re not just going to accept a fine, they’re going to want to go to court and contest it,” said Taylor.

Main stage given to backing singers SUBMITTED

Grand Forks Gazette

They are the “shoop shoops,” the “wah wahs” and other back-up vocal bits in our generational anthems. They give substance, dimension, harmonious threads and consistency to our favourite tunes. They are the foundation. Lou Reed referred to them in his song Walk on the Wild Side, “and the coloured girls go doo d’ doo etc.” When Merry Clayton hits that incredible high note as she belts out “Rape, Murder!” on the Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter, if you listen closely to the recorded version you can hear Mick Jagger say “whoo….!” in response. On Tuesday, Nov. 19 Spotlight Films will be presenting 20 Feet From Stardom, an overdue and well-deserved homage to the backup singers behind

some of the greatest legends of the 20th and 21st centuries. This film, directed by Morgan Neville (Johnny Cash’s America), features interviews with the likes of the Great Ray Charles, Sheryl Crow, David Bowie, etc. and is a glowing and fun tribute to the mostly

black women, mostly talented gospel singers, who shone just beyond the spotlight. 20 Feet From Stardom was an audience favourite at film festivals from San Francisco to London and won four awards: HBO audience award at the 2013 Provincetown International Film Festival; best documentary at the 2013 San Francisco IFF, both awards were to Neville and Tremolo Productions.

In review: Telling the story of a sasquatch LORRAINE GORDON

Holding reader’s attention

For the Grand Forks Gazette

Kiba. The Story of a Sasquatch, is the tale of a rescued sasquatch baby raised by humans in, of all places, Grand Forks. It’s an exciting and heartwarming story with enough drama to hold the attention of young folks of all ages. Empty nesters George and Lorraine are on a berry-picking expedition up in the Cascade mountain range, in the old Phoenix mine area. Suddenly they hear screams, which they think could be a cougar. Then the sounds change to moans, and they know someone is nearby, and in pain. Upon investigation they witness a young and frail sasquatch in the throes of a difficult childbirth. Her mate stands by, but cannot help her. Through their unthreatening body language, George and Lorraine make him understand that they only want to help. Unfortunately, it is too late for the mother, who lives just long enough to briefly nurse her newborn baby. The grief-stricken father cries out, “Ki-ba,

KIBA The Story of a Sasquatch • Written by Helen Durham Kiba. The Story of a Sasquatch, is the tale of a rescued sasquatch baby raised by humans in, of all places, Grand Forks. It’s an exciting and heartwarming story with enough drama to hold the attention of young folks of all ages. Limited copies of the book are available from the author, at hdurham@shaw. ca.

Ki-ba,” which George and Lorraine later figure out must mean “Ki’s baby.” The male sasquatch knows he is not able to care for an infant, and in his desperation, allows Lorraine to take his son. Over George’s initial objections, the couple raises the baby sasquatch, whom they decide to name Kiba, as their own. Their last child had left home two years before, and they have plenty of love to give little Kiba.

Express Lunch Monday - Friday 11 - 2 pm



Every Thursday


Their friends in Grand Forks help them keep the baby a secret from the media, the government, the scientists, the hunters, and the just plain curious, until finally, the secret is out. What happens next is referred to as, “the trial of the century,” as George and Lorraine fight to keep Kiba legally. The story details Kiba’s struggles with speech and schoolwork—especially math—and describes his amazing athletic ability. Kiba grows into such a superb athlete that he ends up playing in the National Hockey League! But George and Lorraine ensure that Kiba stays in touch with his sasquatch family, and while growing up, he spends every summer on adventures with them in the wilds. I jumped at the chance to buy copies of this book for my grandchildren, who range in age from six to 14 years old, since it takes place in Grand Forks— where grandma lives—just in time for Christmas. Limited copies of the book are available from the author, at hdurham@shaw. ca.

A strong crowd of all ages turned out at the Grand Forks Cenotaph in front of City Hall for the city’s Remembrance Day ceremony. The ceremony honoured those veterans who had fallen to protect our freedom as well as those currently serving. The ceremony started with a march from the legion to the cenotaph by the Grand Forks Pipes and Drums unit, veterans, legion members, dignitaries, fire and police officials in full regalia, and representatives of youth groups. At the cenotaph, the pipe band played The Lament, which was followed by a moment of silence for those fallen. Finally, wreaths were placed at the Cenotaph to honour those who have served for Canada.

The grave of former Grand Forks resident Cpl. Alfred Gyde Heaven MM., 102 Canadian infantry has been tidied up and a poppy cross has been laid on the grave to commemorate Nov. 11. Heaven joined the infantry and in November 1916 he won the Military Medal for “gallant conduct.” He was 18 when he died in a Shrewsbury hospital on April 21, 1917. Heaven died before the Commonwealth War Graves Commission was established by Royal Charter and began officially identifying the resting places of fallen soldiers and building memorials. His gravestone deteriorated in recent years, making it difficult to read the engravings. In 2007, Shrewsbury war historian Philip Morris found Heaven’s grave by accident when he was looking around the cemetery for another grave.

BETHS opens doors for winter CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Boundary Emergency and Transition Housing Society’s (BETHS) extreme weather shelter is now open for the winter at their new location in the Multiple Agency Accommodation Project (MAAP) building. The shelter, across from the former Gazette location, opened for the season on Nov. 1 and will close in March. “The new building is wonderful,” said Ramona Dannhauer, head team leader at BETHS. “It’s theirs. It’s a big difference from being in the church to being here. It’s ours. We can work it to our needs.” The shelter is open to anyone who needs a place to stay whether they’re male, female or a family. “So far we’ve had one person on a regular basis,” said Dannhauer. “There’s a couple that have come in and checked us out to see what we’re like. You’re always going to have people reluctant to come in because of the policies we have.”

The shelter has rules about no smoking, no drug use, and no distribution. In addition, all possessions are kept up front, said Dannhauer. In the old location, the shelter usually got five or six guests per night. “Once we get established here, we know it’ll get busier,” said Dannhauer. “And when it gets colder.” The shelter opens at 8 p.m. each evening and closes at 8 a.m. “At 8 a.m. we sign them out and they receive all their belongings back and can go next door for breakfast (at Whispers of Hope),” she said. “That’s super convenient. We felt bad at the church because once we kicked them out at 8 a.m. they had no place to go.” BETHS shelter has two staff on duty all night. The shelter has nine beds available currently in two separate rooms that can be made into three if needed. Extra mattresses are also available if the shelter gets more than nine visitors. The shelter also has laundry and shower facilities for guests.

Boruck also credits the City of Grand Forks for buying the property and leasing it to Habitat for Humanity (for $1 per year). “We’re sub-leasing off of Habitat,” he said. “We’re paying some back to Habitat to cover some of the renovations. Once it’s paid, we’ll have very low operating costs. Charitable organizations often struggle with finances. “When you can find a building you can stay in for a reasonable cost, obviously that helps. So, we’re very happy with the building.” In addition to the lower expenses, Whispers of Hope will have a much bigger space to operate in. “We’ve gone from a very small square footage for the kitchen where you couldn’t use the fridge and the stove at the same time or else you’d bump into each other, to a nice big kitchen,” he said. “The thrift store space is much more user friendly as well. You used to have to walk through the kitchen to get to the thrift store. Now we have our own store front.”

Joke of the Week: So these two roaches, Tom and Oscar, are hanging out next to a dumpster enjoying a snack. “Hey Tom,” said Tom to his friend Oscar, “You know that restaurant down the block? I went there yesterday to pick up some scraps, and I couldn’t believe how clean it was, I could practically see my reflection through the shiny waxed floor.” “Oscar,” hollered Tom spitting the food out of his mouth, “please not while I am eating!!”

Help is available for Boundary residents needing transportation to medical appointments or visits to care centres. Called the Boundary Area Volunteer Driver Program, it is a driving service for people who are unable to arrange their own rides to health care appointments, explained Boundary area office manager Christine Brooks. The program is simple: For anything medical-related there are volunteer drivers who will drive people to their appointments, no matter where—even as distant as Kelowna, Penticton, Trail, Nelson or Castlegar. The drivers are available, whether there is no family, or if family is not available for transportation when anything like a dental or doctor appointment is scheduled, even if they need to go to the drugstore to renew a prescription, said Brooks. Because some clients may have mobility issues or other unique needs, an intake interview is done over the phone to make sure their needs are accommodated. “They are matched up with the driver and vehicle that most closely suits them and their needs,” said Brooks. If a client wants their spouse or caregiver to accompany them then they are accommodated as well. Referral to the service might come from a medical practitioner, community care worker or the client. There is a charge for the service meant to cover fuel and maintenance of the vehicle. Subsidy is available based on need, and rates may vary depending on pick up location. “The program wouldn’t exist without our drivers,” said Brooks. “They are amazing people. We have a list of clients who request certain drivers because they have bonded with them and gotten to know them and they take them to their regular appointments.” Volunteer drivers must have a valid driver’s license, do a criminal records check (costs will be reimbursed) and have a driver’s abstract done. Brooks has information packages available with all of the appropriate forms for those interested in the service either as a client or volunteer driver. For more information contact them at 250-584-4618 or, in the case of clients living in the West Boundary using the Wheels of Wellness, contact Isabella (Issy) McLean at 250446-2977. The Boundary Area Volunteer Driver Program is possible through the sharing of resources and abilities of three groups. Boundary Community Hospice Association manages the service. Joining them to provide ride services in the West Boundary are the Kettle River Seniors (Branch 102) with their Wheels of Wellness vehicle. The third partner is Interior Health.

Gardeners and golfers had almost ideal conditions throughout October because the month was one of the driest on record with plenty of sunshine. “October was remarkably dry, but other than a lot of great outdoor weather, no other records were broken,” said weather forecaster Chris Cowan from the Southeast Fire Centre. Monthly statistics provided by the centre’s weather services in Castlegar show the region received 7.4 millimetres of rain in October, which is 15 per cent of the average 48 mm. The month was the fourth driest on record with most of the rain falling during a brief band of afternoon showers on Oct. 7 and an evening downpour of 2.6 mm on Oct. 26, said Ron Lakeman, the centre’s forecaster in his month end report. Lakeman noted that past dry Octobers were in 2002, 1987, and 1974, with 2.2 mm, 5 mm, and 3.8 mm of precipation respectively. Although the mean monthly temperature was close to normal, a high pressure system during the first week of the month brought sunshine and the warmest temperature, 20.7 C on Oct. 6., but well short of the record high of 27.2 in 1980. The month ended on a cool note with the coolest temperature of October recorded on Oct. 30 when it dipped to -4.6 C. An upper level flow brought a significant drop in temperature and approximately 30 centimetres of snow on the mountains between Saturday and Sunday. The first week of November has seen chilly temperatures, on the cold side of normal, with more snow expected later this week, said Cowan.

Halloween Passions


GFSS students wowed this Halloween with halls full of horrific costumes and ghoulish makeup, with more students dressed up this year than ever before. The teachers all dressed up as convicts, except for Mr. Stewart who was the warden! I suspect they enjoyed the day as much as their students, if not more! The costume contest winners for each category were Dylan Mehmal, Clarissa Palek, Courtney Gilmore, as well as Rubee Antonelli and Kaden Dolan. Winning first in funniest, Dylan Mehmal went as a classic redneck! Clarissa Palek came in first for most unique with her costume; “Sally”, a kind hearted, pieced-together rag doll from “The Nightmare before Christmas”. Courtney Gilmore in her guise as an Egyptian goddess won first place for most original. Finally, the winners for group costume, Rubee Antonelli the bee and her keeper Kaden Dolan. In the individual categories 1st place prize was a $10 gift certificate at Jitters, and for the group winners a $20 gift certificate was

Leading Healthy Lives

ELENA PLOTNIKOFF When the subject of health is brought up varied thoughts are called to mind for different people. You may be thinking of your diet of energy drinks and chips, obsessing about your habitual smoking, or considering your daily exercise routine (or lack thereof). Teenagers are often accused of being selfish, but as self-absorbed creatures we don’t take very good care of ourselves. If our bodies are “temples” then ours sometimes appear to be in ruins. Teenagers need the knowledge, encouragement, and opportunities to get healthy and often we neglect the resources we have near at hand. While programs are in place with the best of intentions to promote health

Volume Four, Number Eight

amongst students, the students themselves (those directly affected by these choices), are never asked what they want. There is a disconnect between students and the school regarding their wants and needs for improving their well-being. During high school, the transition is made from childhood into adolescence with increased ownership of personal responsibilities. This growth includes learning to take care of physical, mental, and emotional wellness. It is in a school’s best interest to take part in improving the health of students so that they are able to perform better academically. By taking more input from students, coupled with administrative resources,

the vision of student health will be unified and a school’s all around salubriousness will be enhanced. Certain aspects from teenage hood are thankfully transient but established healthy habits can be of benefit for a lifetime. GFSS welcomes Health and Wellness Coordinator Karly Olsen who has undertaken to initiate programs geared at the varied needs of high school kids as well as other students throughout the district. Ms. Olsen has made a significant effort to try and take the pulse of the needs of our students in her program development and we are grateful for her efforts. We look forward to seeing more relevant resources available in the high school.

the team of seventeen girls has been split into two teams: one Red and one Black. The Red team played very well in their first tournament in Nelson at LVR where they won seven out of eight games. The Black team has been matching the strength of the Red team as they won five of their eight games in a tournament at J.L. Crowe. Both teams will be heading to Castlegar on November 13th for a play day at Stanley Humphries. Grade Eight Girls coach, Mrs. Webster has been pleased by the amount of enthusiasm and commitment the girls have shown so far this season. We can expect both teams to continue to advance as they go further into the season. Good job girls!

Winter’s Breath

“As a student, the winter weather can bring more bad than good” SIMONE GENTRY I woke up the other morning and to my amazement the world was transformed from the fall scene of the day before into a snowy wonderland. It feels so early for snow, as if fall only stopped in for a visit instead of staying awhile. When we were younger, the first snow was a thing we waited for all year. The changing of seasons was small compared to our joy at the white blanket falling to the ground. As a student, the winter weather can bring more bad than good; it makes walking anywhere unpleasantly cold and/or wet. Even those students with vehicles can find winter a serious challenge ... icy roads, lengthy warm up time, and scraping windshields are obstacles of the season; not to mention winter tires. Student drivers have to be especially careful for things like black ice and unplowed roads. Earlier dusk is another reality of winter time; less sunlight after the school day is over makes it difficult to always find time for everything. Eventually we all tire of the cold; longing

“The hockey academy program is an excellent resource for students” TYRA REXIN

Photo by: Sabrina White

The hockey academy is a program run by GFSS to provide a unique opportunity for players interested in further developing their skills. There are 26 students enrolled in the program from grades eight to twelve. These players are part of hockey teams anywhere from Bantam to Junior B. Students participating in the program train 2.5 hours on the ice each week focusing on passing, skating, stick handling and shooting. They spend another 2.5 hours training off the ice to improve speed, strength, power and agility. This program focuses on individual skill development which means they spend the majority of

their time training; however there are opportunities to test their skills as they scrimmage against one another throughout the week. This program is conducted by a cooperative coaching partnership between our principal, Scott Stewart, and the Junior B Border Bruins coach. It is meant to support the minor hockey program of Grand Forks by giving students the convenience of honing their skills during a regular school day while getting credit for a P.E. course. The hockey academy program is an excellent resource for students who are determined to become experienced hockey players and enjoy putting time in to practice on and off the ice.

GFSS students had a great time in the new snow with their “motorcycles”. A couple of GFSS’s Auto class students created two hybrid motorized bikes for summer’s warmth again. The passage of time is thrown into sudden turmoil by the changing seasons; we`re already halfway through the first semester! With that said,

midterms will be going home soon (good luck everyone!) The snow’s melting for the most part now but it’ll be back soon enough. Enjoy the winter weather everyone!

Anti Gay Doesn’t Pay

“what happens to the businesses that take a stand defending diversity?”


You probably don’t think about the social implications when digging into a delicious plate of spaghetti but with big shot CEOs constantly eating their words, people have to start thinking about what they are putting in their mouths. The latest company executive to show his true colors was Guido Barilla, fourth generation Barilla family owner and apparent bigot. During a radio interview Barilla was asked about featuring a homosexual family in an advertisement for the company to which he stated that the company would never do so because of traditional family values. Though an apology was promptly issued following the controversial statement, the damage was already done. LGBT groups were taking action urging a boycott of the brand and social media was buzzing. Competing companies jumped in as well, responding to the comments with adverts featuring rainbow pasta and slogans promising their support of all pasta eaters regardless of their sexual orientation.

Volume Four, Number nine

Guido Barilla and many others have set an example of why not to speak before you think, but powerful people are still letting their mouths get them into trouble with the LGBT community. Barilla is not the first company to face strife regarding anti-homosexual remarks or policies. Chickfil-A was recently under fire for criticism made by the president of the company regarding samesex marriage and the reveal of the large sum of money they donate to anti-gay groups. Similar backlash was sparked resulting in protests, petitions, boycotts, and withdrawal of support from affiliated companies. Corporations with publicized anti-gay opinions have faced the decline in funds,

support, customers, and respect. Due to the backlash of revealing personal opinions, many companies stay neutral in conflicting times but what happens to the businesses that take a stand defending diversity? Just ask Levis, Oreos, Nike, Starbucks, Microsoft, JCPenney, or Google, they do not seem to be faltering because of their support for the LGBT community. Morally and financially it pays to support what is right because you are what you eat and I for one don’t want to be a discriminatory noodle head.

This year’s GFSS Hockey Academy program is off to a solid start. A partnership between Grand Forks Secondary School and the Border Bruins has helped to make the program a popular choice with students.

Students in the Kootenays who want to learn a trade are getting a helping hand with more than $65,000 in one-time funding for 16 foundation seats in targeted trades training courses during 2013-14. The funding will support student spaces in the College of the Rockies’ electrical program at its Cranbrook campus. Foundation training programs provide students with the basic knowledge and skills needed for entry into a particular occupation. Students receive credit for the first-level apprenticeship training in a specific field by the Industry Training Authority once they have successfully completed the foundation program. This is the sixth year that the provincial government has provided targeted foundation skills funding. From 2008-09 to 2013-14 the total funding for foundation skills programming is $10.3 million.

Time to retire: Atamanenko CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

After seven years and three terms in office as Member of Parliament (MP) for the B.C. Southern Interior region, Alex Atamanenko is retiring. Atamanenko made the announcement on Nov. 4, but told the Gazette he had been thinking of stepping down for awhile. “I’ve been doing it for 10 years either as a candidate or an MP,” he said. “I’ll be 70 years old in 2015, so I figured it was time to say goodbye.” Atamanenko began his career by joining the provincial NDP in 2004 shortly after the election of a B.C. Liberal government in 2001. “I was really upset over the direction that the Liberal government was taking us in B.C.,” he said. “A federal election was coming up in 2003 and I made a decision that maybe I could be an acceptable candidate. I approached our executive and they didn’t have anyone else to run in 2004 and I became the candidate.” Atamanenko lost in 2004 by 684 votes, but bounced back to win in 2006—the first of three consecutive terms. He said it’s a time he will certainly look back at fondly. “I’ve met many very interesting people and seen every corner of our huge riding,” he said. “I’ve had a chance to travel across Canada. I’ve had a chance to be one of 308 people in Parliament. It’s been quite an experience.” Among the many highlights of Atamanenko’s career including meeting and getting to know former federal NDP leader Jack Lay-

ton, who died of cancer in 2011. “He was a very dynamic person,” said Atamanenko. “I had a chance to talk to him on a personal level.” Atamanenko was also proud of travelling across Canada getting feedback on food sovereignty for his report Food for Thought. “The main highlight, though, is working with committed people in our area whether it’s Laura (Savinkoff) of the (Boundary) Peace Movement, or folks involved in the anti-GMO (genetically modified organisms) movement,” he said. “That kind of focus has been really interesting.” Another issue that Atamenko fought against was the upcoming boundary change for the B.C. Southern Interior region which will lose Nelson and gain Penticton. The name will be changed to South Okanagan West Kootenay. “I think it’ll be a challenge, but I think we can overcome it if we have a good (NDP) candidate,” he said. “We didn’t do that badly with our provincial candidate. That shows you that we’ve got room to grow there.” Although he will finish out his term working hard, life after politics beckons, and part of his time will be taken up as a karate instructor. “I started in 1974, interesting enough in Ottawa,” he said. “It’s a good balance. Even know I work out and train. It balances the stressful life we have here. It’s good for the body and soul. “I’m going to rest,” he said. “I’m going to cut some wood, play some music, do some karate, and then we’ll see what happens.”

Gross leads Bruins to weekend road sweep in two games CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Despite having different coaches on different days, the Grand Forks Border Bruins won both games during a weekend road trip to the East Kootenay. The wins, over Fernie and Creston Valley, pushed the Bruins over .500 for the first time since the start of the season with an 8-72-1 record. Bruin forward Connor Gross was the star of the weekend, recording four goals and two assists to lead the team to the two wins. Gross had been in a slump over the last few weeks and was happy to get back in the scoring groove. “My parents were there (in Fernie), so maybe that helped,” he said. “I also relaxed a bit more. I was gripping the stick pretty tight the last couple of weeks.” Gross said having the team together for the weekend on the road trip was a big help in bringing the players together.

“We played hard all weekend,” he said. “Our power play was clicking and our goaltending was strong. Any time you get to go on the road together, it’s good for the team for bonding.”

Burgess. Dominic Stadnyk turned away 26 of 30 shots for the Bruins in the game. “We had some really good goaltending,” said Gross. “We gave up a lot of chances. (Stadnyk) gave us a good chance to win. “We played really hard,” he pointed out. “Our power play was clicking; we got some goals on that. “Any time we can score on the power play, it really helps.” Assistant coach Doreen Sheets was behind the bench for the Bruins as interim head coach Matt Zamec was at a wedding and new head coach Kevin Flather was still awaiting permission from Hockey Canada.

Bruins 5, ‘Riders 4 On Friday, the Bruins won a squeaker in Fernie, defeating the Ghostriders 5-4 behind a game winning goal from Jackson Purvis at 8:39 of the third period. The Bruins got off to a strong start with Dakota Little opening the scoring at 15:30 of the first period, assisted by Connor Gross and Cam McLennan. Kale Johnston tied the game for Fernie a few minutes later. The Bruins then went up 4-1 with three consecutive goals, including two from Gross. Max Newton scored the other one at 7:27 of the second period. The ‘Riders fought back, though, with three straight goals of their own, including a pair from Cole Keebler and a single from Joel

The Bruins tied the game up with Tucker Brown scoring an unassisted power play marker, and then Gross scoring his first of two, assisted by Kittle and Purvis. The Cats went up 3-2 near the end of the first period with Livingstone scoring his second. Gross tied the game up again with his second marker at 18:27 of the second stanza. Trevor Hanna gave the Cats the edge 22 seconds later. After that, it was all Grand Forks with four unanswered goals by Lucas Robinson, Mitchell Dolman, Graham Watkins and Little. Purvis ended the scoring with an empty netter at 2:51 of the third with an unassisted goal. “We kept working hard and didn’t panic,” said Gross about the team’s resiliency against Creston Valley. “Luckily enough, we were able to pull off the win.” Kai McDonald got the win in net for GF with 38 saves on 43 shots.

IN BRIEF ATV meeting The Grand Forks ATV Club has grown in 2013. They now have over 80 members and have been granted funds from New Horizons for Seniors and Phoenix Foundation. Members of the GFATV Club have mapped over 1,400 kilometres of trails and have published a local map book showing these trails. This map book has allowed many local riders to get out safely on the trails. The Boundary Country Trails Agreement was signed earlier this year with all user groups in the area being represented. All that were present agreed that with cooperation and consideration everyone could use the trail system and enjoy the outdoors, said Doug Zorn, vice-president of the GFATV Club. “The sport of recreation is a big economic driver and all groups hope to see it help the region’s economy,” he said in a press release. With this in mind there will be an important meeting Wednesday, Nov. 27 at Selkirk College, room eight at 7 p.m. Anyone interested in trails is asked to attend.

Flather takes over reins of surging Bruins CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The Grand Forks Border Bruins have hired a new head coach and general manager. Former Border Bruin Kevin Flather has been hired by the team to take over coaching and GM duties. Flather, who hails from Surrey, was hired Nov. 7, but was unable to take over head coaching duties until Saturday’s game in Creston Valley. Board member and assistant coach Matt Zamec said the team was fortunate to be able to find a qualified coach and GM this late into the season. “He runs a conditioning and shooting/ skating mechanic camp in the summer,” said Zamec. “One of our players, Corey Munro, worked with him last summer. When Nick (Deschenes) left, it was Corey’s dad who actually called up Kevin, who had just retired from professional hockey and told him there was a job opening here. He got a hold of us. The boys like him, we liked him, so we offered him the position.” Zamec said the board was not actively pursuing a coach but were pleased to receive an application from a coach with a background similar to former coach Nick Deschenes. “The situation we’re in, there’s not many coaches floating around halfway through the season,” said Zamec. “If we got someone in here, they had to have a strong personality, a positive attitude, and come in here and tread gently, given that everything is already in place here and running smoothly.” Zamec said with the board in place and himself and assistant coach Doreen Sheets, the Bruins could finish the season as is. “We thought if the right person came along, we’d consider it,” he said. “Kevin came and met with us. He’s young like Nick. He played university hockey. He played professional hockey. It’s one of those crazy

things that fell into place unexpectedly. We were a little down about Nick’s departure, but now we’re really excited about having Kevin.” Veteran forward Connor Gross said the coaching switches have been distracting, but the team has stayed focused on their goals. “I don’t think anyone is too overwhelmed by it. Kevin isn’t really going to change much. We’re going to keep doing what we were doing before he got here.” Gross added that the players were impressed with the new coach and are looking forward to continuing to play well. “I think everyone’s taking a liking to him so far,” he said. “He’s pretty vocal on the bench. Everyone seems to be enjoying him.” Flather told the Gazette that he is really excited to take over the coaching and general managing reins for the Bruins. “I’m ecstatic,” he said. “I couldn’t be happier. I inherited a

great club from Nick. He did a great job with these boys. They’ve got a resiliency that’s top notch. It’s something special.” At 27, Flather isn’t far removed from playing. He’s expected to really be able to connect with the players, like former coach Deschenes did before leaving for Trail. “I retired from playing about four months ago,” said Flather. “Injuries came to the forefront and kind of forced me into making a decision.” After he applied for the Bruins position Flather came up to Grand Forks on a trial and ran a team practice. He was offered the position on Thursday. Flather played university hockey at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ont. He played pro hockey in several different places, with the last being Knoxville, Tenn. Flather played for the Border Bruins 10 years ago. “The biggest reason I took the job is because I like the small town,” he said. “I like Grand Forks. I like that the boys live together, play together. “You have a lot more control off the ice. You can really

unify (the team) at this entry level junior and get the mindset all as one.” Having played in all three junior B leagues in B.C., Flather said the KIJHL is, by

far, the best of the lot. “It’s very serendipitous that Grand Forks was my first opportunity as a player, and now, again, as a head coach and general manager,” he said.

Terry Perehudoff It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Terry Perehudoff on November 1st, 2013 at the age of 63. Terry was born on January 23rd, 1950 and raised on a farm in Thrums, BC. Terry married the love of his life, Lydia (Elasoff) on, August 6th, 1983. Together they raised a son and a daughter. Terry worked in the lumber sales industry in different areas of Canada, retiring from Weyerhaeuser in 2007. For the past 25 years, Terry, Lydia and their children enjoyed life together in Kamloops. He was known by his family and friends for his love of life, quick wit, and passion for music and golf. He played the trumpet in a band called “The Occasions” in his younger years. His friends have many fond memories of him playing late into the night surrounded by music and laughter. He loved watching all sports with his family and taught his daughter to play golf. His home was always filled with the sound of his favorite bands and the hum of sports in the background. He will be remembered fondly as a loving husband and father who always welcomed friends and family to his home with warmth and hospitality. Survived by his loving wife Lydia, son Nicholas, daughter Natalya (partner Rich Burnett), brother Bill (Mary), brother Frank (Dorothy), sister Nadeen (Bill) Elasoff, brother Alex (partner Diane Robinson), mother-in-law Marcia Elasoff, sister-in-law Liza Strukoff, brother-in-law Jim Elasoff as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father William, his mother Dorothy, his father-in-law Alex, and his nephews Brian and Jim. A celebration of Terry’s life will be held at the Little Bear Golf Course, 872 Waterloo Road, Castlegar, BC on Saturday, November 23rd at 11 a.m.. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the love, support, food and flowers from our friends and family. We would also like to give a huge thank you to all of the staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Kamloops for their incredible care and support during this difficult time. Should friends desire, donations can be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association (72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC, V2E 2S9) or to the Castlegar Hospice Society (709 10th St., Castlegar, BC, V1N 2H7).

Thank You T

he City of Grand Forks would like to express our most heartfelt thank you to our partners Roxul Inc and School District #51 for providing the use of the former Canpar office building and 5th St locations, to house our offices and staff. The utilization of this wonderful space has assisted the City immensely in settling back into our local government roles in the administration, finance and planning departments. In addition, these buildings provide a temporary home which will allow Council meetings and public interaction to continue at a secure and professional venue. As the City presses on with its business as usual, and awaits

the restoration process of our heritage City Hall, our staff is guaranteed secure and very serviceable offices for working space. The City thanks you again for your generosity and dedication to our incredible City.

Mayor Brian Taylor presents Certificates of Appreciation to Jim Holmes of Roxul Inc. (above), and Teresa Rezansoff and Kevin Argue (below) of School District 51.

Snow Removal With the winter season fast approaching the City of Grand Forks is asking residents to do their part in helping city crews make the snow removal process more efficient.

any vehicles, boats, trailers, RV’s or recreational vehicles that do not have a current valid licence should be stored on the owner’s property or at a storage facility.

Winter will be here before we know it!

The City of Grand Forks would like to thank you in advance for helping keep the snow removal process simple and safe.

You can help by ensuring that all vehicles, RV’s, boats and trailers are stored on your property and not on the side of the road; this keeps the boulevards clear providing easy access for snow removal equipment.
