GAI void not being filled next year Golden Cycling Club expands on trail ..................................17

Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net At the Town Council meeting on Nov. 5, it was decided that funding for economic development would be ceased indefinitely. The resolution to cease funding for Golden Area Initiatives (GAI) follows a recent letter received from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District confirming the position of Area

‘A’ Director Habart’s unwillingness to partner with the Town of Golden for the delivery of such services under a municipal “in-house” model. The Town estimates that without the assistance of the regional district, or access to the Economic Opportunities Fund (EOF) account, meaningfully funding an in-house position and operating budget would at least be in the range of $150,000 annually.  

The EOF is a portion of BC Hydro’s annual payment in lieu of taxes to the district. For the past 10 years, GAI has been funded by a partnership between the two local governments to provide economic development services.  Each has contributed approximately $85,000 per year from general taxation with another $100,000 sourced from the EOF.

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

A local business owner is trying to fill that gap, and provide a free service for both locals and visitors. "I'm trying to connect the resort to town," said Che Koroll during a presentation to Town Council. Koroll, owner of Canadian Off-road Adventures, wants to start up a free shuttle service in between the town and KHMR. He hopes it will accommodate as many people as possible, with a particular focus on workers and skiers during the day, and families in the evening who want to spend time in town without worrying about having a drink with dinner. To keep this service free, Koroll has been approaching investors, which includes all the businesses in town who would benefit from the service, as well as the resort and the Town. "The biggest response I've received initially has been from the restaurants," said Koroll. He has also been in contact with Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, who owns KHMR, and has received an informal confirmation that they are interested in supporting his venture, they just haven't said in what way. "I've been told that RCR will be involved, they just haven't put a dollar figure on that," he said. Koroll's idea will be developed more down the line, and will ultimately depend on who invests. His current plan would be to rent a 24-passenger bus, and operate the shuttle in the winter months. He estimates the cost would be roughly $5,000 a month. The Mayor and Council commended Koroll on his idea, and indicated it would be a great asset, but made no financial commitment to invest.

Willhorse places 5th in Peak Performance After months of working on the prestigious provincial competition, the Peak Performance Project, Golden band Willhorse has $5,000 to show for it as they came in fifth place. More than 400 B.C. bands entered the challenge, and most of the ones that made it through were from Vancouver Island, or the Greater Vancouver area. Since July the band has been working on their challenges, including a boot camp, multiple performances, a charitable project, and online voting. The Top 5 were announced on air (102.7 The Peak radio station in Vancouver) on Nov. 5. The Top 3 (order they came in has not yet been announced) will be performing in Vancouver on Nov. 21.

New CRT recommendations in draft The Province’s Columbia River Treaty Review team was in Golden last Tuesday to meet with the public and discuss its list of recommendations. The review was initiated by the B.C. government in 2011 to evaluate future decision options, including possible continuation, amendment or termination of the treaty. The nearly 50-year-old treaty can be terminated by either Canada or the U.S. in 2024, but 10 year’s notice must be given by next year. The Review Team, led by Executive Director Kathy Eichenberger, discussed their recommendations for treaty amendments and listened to the concerns that locals have with the treaty. Among the review team’s recommendations and principles are the exploration of the restoration of salmon migration, the supplemententation of Called Upon Flood Control and improved coordination on Libby Dam and Koocanusa Reservoir operations. “There is still work to be done, but the committee feels that we are going in the right direction,” said Eichenberger. “[Local government] wants the province to continue to work with the committee with issues that aren’t necessarily directly related with the treaty but that could benefit the community as well.” Town Coun. Ron Oszust, a member of the local government committee that is reviewing the treaty, has used the review process to give a voice to an issue that has plagued the area for some

time now. “The Kinbasket reservoir has been neglected for the last 40 years,” he said. “It can fluctuate up to 175 vertical feet. Many years on the May long weekend, it’s pretty much a desolate moonscape.” The reservoir was created with the creation of the Mica Dam in 1973, 135 kilometres north of Revelstoke. When the dam was built, the province said that the reservoir would have recreational benefits. That hasn’t happened due to fluctuating water levels and the threat of an inland tsunami. A decades-old geo-technical report of the reservoir revealed that there is a danger that portions of the surrounding mountains could slide into the reservoir, and if water levels are high enough, could create an enormous wave. Because of this threat, no development has been permitted within 25 metres of the reservoir’s edge. A study is currently being conducted on whether that danger is still present and is due for release next spring. Other problems that are keeping the reservoir from being a destination for recreation include a lack of proper road access, a limited development of trails and an overall lack of recreational infrastructure. “[The review process] has been a great opportunity to be able to address some aspects of the dam and the reservoir that fit under the Columbia River Treaty,” said Coun. Oszust. “But it’s also been valuable to chase after some other aspects that are defined as domestic, between us and the province,” he said.

A Green Light Doesn’t Always mean Go The next time you are at the front of the lineup waiting for the signal to turn green, watch the driver beside you. Many times when the traffic signal turns green they will immediately proceed without looking to the left or right for hazards or traffic already lawfully in the intersection. A green light doesn’t always mean go. There are three situations where drivers facing a green light must not proceed immediately. Most people already follow these three exceptions, but failing to take them into account can cause confusion or a crash. The first of the three is a situation where turning direction controls are in place. The driver may only proceed as indicated by these signals. The second is where there is a pedestrian lawfully in the intersection or adjacent crosswalk at the time the signal is green. Drivers must yield to these pedestrians. The final situation is where a vehicle has entered the intersection waiting to turn and has been unable to do so before the signal goes red. Cross traffic on the new green signal must yield right of way to allow the first vehicle to clear the intersection.

Seniors’ needs latest focus of Community Coordination project Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net Community Coordination’s “Bringing Seniors Groups Together” was a success with guidance from guest facilitator, Nancy Gale. Gale brought out the issues and opportunities that Golden’s seniors and stakeholder groups are facing. The Community Coordination project has been hosting a series of workshops and meetings, involving local groups and inviting guest speakers to share their experiences around collaboration. As part of the Community Coordination project, led by Golden Community Resources Society (GCRS), over 100 individuals, who are involved with seniors groups, were invited to the seniorsfocused meeting on Nov. 7 at the Royal Canadian Legion. About 35 people attended the three-anda-half hour morning session. The presentation start-

“Council did not enjoy having to make this decision” said Mayor Christina Benty, “but we feel without meaningful financial partnership from the regional district it is simply too burdensome for Golden tax payers to shoulder 100 per cent of what we feel is still a regional serving function.” The Town gave notice in May 2012 of its intent to withdraw from the GAI funding agreement which now terminates on Dec. 31, 2013.  For the first six months of this year a select committee of council including local volunteers researched, consulted, and deliberated what the future of economic service delivery could look like for the community.  In July its recommendation to Council was a return to a municipally staffed function, with regional focus and representation, which is no longer possible without the financial partnership with the CSRD. “This is a huge step backward, to before the mid-nineties for Golden”, said Coun. Caleb Moss, and former chair of the committee. “While neither government was happy with the current model, we did expect continued regional cost sharing and support in a delivery alternative. We simply do not have staffing capacity, or the spe-

cialized skill base to give economic development the dedicated focus needed to entice investment to our area." An even greater setback said Moss is that “even with our proposal to fund the entire function using EOF – with no tax payer burden - the answer was no.  There will now be no functioning body to focus on supporting and helping the development of our collective business community.  The "do nothing" option of the regional district is a “lose-lose” proposition at best and really puts us at a competitive disadvantage in relationship to our progressive regional neighbors." With an absolute future for GAI uncertain, Council and staff are working with its board and membership to determine its options beyond this calendar year. Options that will need to be determined will include the funding of Kicking Horse Culture after 2014. During the same meeting, council voted to apply to the CSRD to use EOF money for KHC for 2014 (as both parties need to approve the use of the funds). This means Kicking Horse Culture’s funding is secure for one more year, and will have to be looked at again next year for 2015.

“The ‘do nothing’ option of the regional district is a ‘lose-lose’ proposition at best...” — Coun. Caleb Moss —

Two RMI projects take their next step Jessica Schwitek editor@thegoldenstar.net Golden’s two largest Resort Municipality Initiative projects (in this funding cycle) have gotten the go-ahead from Town Council to proceed with more detailed plans. The Highway Corridor Project, with a budget of more than $1 million, received unanimous support from council to move forward. Coun. Keith Hern said he was “totally in favour of work happening on the highway,” but had some concerns about the specific design. MMM Group (the firm hired for the designs) proposed a lighting concept on the centre median. Hern thinks the operating costs for this piece of the project is “impractical.”

The operating costs were worked into the proposal, and council will look at the project again when the detailed concepts are in. The second project, the Spirit Square Amenity Hub, drew a bit more discussion from council. The conceptual designs for the project were presented by Len Brown at the last regular council meeting, and included a permanent stage, seating built into the edge of the dyke, structures for shade, and a new placement of the bathrooms. The designs addressed the priorities that were determined by a committee, however Coun. Hern was not satisfied with the planning process. “I don’t feel that the stakeholders have been engaged,” he said. “Most of the people I’ve talked to would not sup-

port this.” Conversations Hern had with residents (which he says were limited) revealed concerns about the concept hindering other activities in the square, as the design caters primarily to one activity, says Hern. Coun. Mike Pecora, who was part of the committee, says the concerns can be attributed to misinformation. With the new stage backing onto the alley, and the permanent seating outside of the square, it actually opens it up to more activities including the start and finish of races, says Pecora. “I believe there will be strong support for this project if the information gets out,” said Coun. Ron Oszust. Council voted to start detailed plans for the amenity hub, with Coun. Hern opposed.

Columbia Valley Transmission meets standards Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net An audit of BC Hydro’s fire prevention practices on four licences to cut associated with the Columbia Valley Transmission Project found operations met the requirements of B.C.’s Wildfire Act, according to a report released last week. “The board reviewed emergency response plans and burn plans, among other things, as part of the audit,” said

Al Gorley, board chair. “We found that BC Hydro clearly addressed fire preparedness in its planning, meeting all requirements in the Wildfire Act. As well, it had detailed site plans for clearing and slash disposal for the entire 125 kilometres of the transmission line project.” The transmission line extends 125 kilometres from Invermere to Golden through the Columbia Valley. The Colum-

bia Valley is a popular recreation destination and is home to a variety of wildlife. Under the Wildfire Act, a person carrying out an industrial activity, such as land clearing, must take steps to protect forest and range resources from wildfire. This is the first time the board has looked at BC Hydro activities for compliance with the act. The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watch-

dog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government. The board audits forest and range

practices on public lands and appropriateness of government enforcement. It can also make recommendations for improvement to practices and legislation.

A very heartfelt thank you to the Fire Chief, the Volunteer Firefighters, the Ambulance Service, Selkirk Electric, the Golden Plumber, Sandra Beckett and my GCRS coworkers for their immediate response when a flood at Mountain View created an emergency situation. Only in a small town does our crisis become theirs. We are so fortunate! From Tricia, the staff and the tenants of Mountain View

Cultural activity

opinion

Met Opera Editor,

Golden’s cultural vibrancy is one of the community’s greatest assets - one worth protecting, and one worth paying for. No one person or one organization can be credited with the overabundance of cultural entertainment around town. Groups, business- I SURMISE es, and individual art- By Jessica Schwitek ists are continually working hard to bring great acts to town and host wonderful events in Golden. Kicking Horse Culture (KHC) is certainly one of the largest contributors, and a lot of people will have breathed a sigh of relief this week when KHC’s funding was secured for one more year. (The group’s funding used to flow through Golden Area Initiatives, who’s contract is expiring at the end of 2013). Not only has the funding been secured, it has been removed from the local taxpayers’ shoulders. The money, for 2014 at least, will come entirely from the Economic Opportunities Fund. The fund comes from BC Hydro’s annual payment in lieu of taxes. It sounds like quite a victory, but it is an incomplete one. This is a temporary solution, albeit a great one, but it will have to be redetermined next year. There will be a municipal election in 2014, so there may be different faces sitting around the table next year when this topic comes up again. My only hope is that Kicking Horse Culture, which has hosted 170 concerts since 2004, as well as countless other events, is still valued. I hope it is still deemed worthy of supporting even if it comes at a cost. It’s hard to measure the value of this kind of service, especially when not everyone in the community participates in these events. But in a community with a dwindling tax base (just like many other small communities in British Columbia), every person and/or family you keep in Golden is valuable — as is every visitor who comes back or stays one extra day to be part of a Golden event. And I can say for certain that Golden’s cultural vibrancy is one of the things that attracts and keeps people in this community. In a tough economy, quality of life becomes that much more important, and Golden has an excellent quality of life.

I would like to write to express my appreciation of the performance of Tosca that my wife and I had the pleasure of seeing at the Golden Cinema on Saturday November 9. This was our first experience of

the live transmission, and we will certainly be returning in the future. The quality of the picture was great, we were able to pick out details that even the audience in New York would not have been able to catch, and the behind the scenes interviews just added to what was a terrific performance by Patricia Racette, and the rest of the cast.

Off-road Vehicles To the editor: Defend your last motorized freedom—the off-road vehicle. B.C. cultural identity is partially defined by freedom to roam the land. Do you want less freedom? The Coalition for Licensing and Regulation of OffRoad Vehicles in BC (established 2003) has proposed government restrict and clamp down on motorcycles, ATVs, ATC, side-by-sides and other machines used in the bush. Some highlights are: you must hold a valid B.C. driver’s licence, carry liability insurance to operate on Crown land trails and forest roads, registration for all machines including a decal or license plate for identification, restrict where and how you use your ATV, enforce new laws in the bush, plus much more. The leads on this proposal are the Cattlemen’s Assn. and Grassland Preservation Society—both would like nothing better than to stop off-road vehicles everywhere. Other supporters are along for the ride in hopes of finding compromise. What I read is a popular recreation activity targeted for more taxes, fees and restrictions, attacking the middle class which will end up costing every taxpayer more. Right now the cost to have fun in the bush is only the investment of the machine and some common sense with

Everyone in the audience was enthralled by the performance, and I urge anyone to give the Met Opera a try, you don’t have to travel far, it’s available right here in our own backyard! Brian Waters, Invermere BC

optional insurance, this is why popularity has grown to more that 200,000+ off-road vehicles in B.C. (actual number unknown). If allowed, you will be forced to pay more and ride less, another freedom stomped down by special interests. At a time of economic recovery why suck more disposable income out of our economy? Remember the HST, gun registry how about boating—it cost us plenty for what. Rest assured once legislation is enacted, in January maybe, off road vehicles will see more future restrictions on land use. There are other solutions that do not cost our socialeconomic system stress and money like this one but rather educate and train without direct cost to taxpayers. Somewhere in this apathetic world, personal responsibility has got to come back from the dead. We are way over-regulated, so why create more rules and more tax? Our cultural identity is partially defined by freedom to roam the land and it belongs to every citizen—that’s why it’s called Crown land. Let us retain some cash and freedom. Write your MLA and start a petition today, say no to an Off-Road Vehicles Act. Henry Van Soest, Williams Lake

“Definitely. It’s a big part of the culture in Golden now and it formulates the base of culture and arts in town.”

“Yes. Kicking Horse Culture supports jobs and the social vibrancy of Golden.”

Do you have any questions about your community, something you’ve been wondering about but never knew who to ask? Email your questions to editor@thegoldenstar.net, or drop them off at The Golden Star office at 419A 9th Ave. N. Question: What is the history behind the poppy and its place as a symbol for Remembrance Day? Answer: As far back at the Napoleonic Wars, the poppy was observed as a strange flower that bloomed on the graves of fallen soldiers. The poppy was again visible over the graves of soldiers in World War I and became synonymous with remembrance in Canadian John McCrae’s famous poem, In Flanders Fields. Just before the end of the war, an American woman read McCrae’s poem and decided to wear a poppy yearround in memory of those who died in the war. Now, the Poppy Campaign is one of the Royal Canadian Legion’s most important fundraising programs.

Operation Legacy To the editor, I belong to Operation Legacy, a group of members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program dedicated to preserving Canada’s military heritage and teaching other young people how to carry on the remembrance message. This year, The War Amps is celebrating a major anniversary. Ninety-five years ago, First World War amputee veterans formed The Amputations Association of the Great War. The name was changed to The War Amputations of Canada when Second World War amputees joined their ranks. These men later started the CHAMP Program to assist young amputees like me. In addition to having had the privilege of learning about Canada’s military heritage from a

young age, I also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to ensure that the stories of war are preserved and its lessons never forgotten. I have been fortunate to be involved with Operation Legacy by participating in local Remembrance Day ceremonies and laying wreaths on behalf of The War Amps. I encourage everyone – particularly young people – to learn more through The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries. Nicole Byford, Operation Legacy Member, Cranbrook

Spirit Days and Columbia River paddlers at LGES in October Janne Arlt LGES Principal October was jam-packed with many events and much learning! We continue to focus on our goals of increasing reading achievement and ensuring safety and belonging for all in the Lady Grey School community. On our recent professional development day, many staff travelled to Calgary to visit three schools that are implementing a Leader in Me philosophy, based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Effective People. We learn so much from being in other schools, talking to teachers and students; learning new ideas that can be adapted for our community. Two highlights to share this month: Columbia River paddlers and Lady Grey Spirit Days.

Source to the Sea visits Lady Grey By Laurie MacDougall Four paddlers from the group Voyages of Rediscovery visited Lady Grey October 21st. They arrived in Golden on Sunday afternoon after paddling UP the Columbia River from Astoria, Oregon, on their Sea to Source journey. They have been consulting with First Nations, biologists, school communities, water experts and community members as they seek to connect the whole river to the people in a quest to celebrate the river and bring salmon back to these parts. They have carved a number of canoes along the way, and have given them to the schools who took part in the projects. They are currently travelling in a self made cedar plank canoe. Students participated in an engaging conversation around our beautiful river

and the types of salmon that used to swim in its waters (before the dams). They shared their local knowledge with our guests and delighted in the pictures shared. For more information please visit: www.voyagesofrediscovery.blogspot.ca/ Book Sale to Benefit Free the Children By: Neva Dalinghaus On Oct. 28 and 29, a few classmates from Mme Soujah and Mme Bernier’s class organized a great book sale to raise money for a well in a poverty stricken country. The total amount we earned already is $336.85. Our goal is $5,000 donated this school year. On our next Spirit Sports Day, Friday, Nov. 29, we are selling hot chocolate with marshmallows and cookies, to raise more moneyyum! Please remind your children to dress up as an athlete in any sport and support this important charity.

Our recent ‘Gotcha’ Assembly recognized all the students that ran the distance of a marathon in our fall Running Club. They received medals and certificates. Over 60 of our students participated in this popular club! We recently gathered with two students representing each class for a conversation around code of conduct. We had an engaging exploration into what students see, hear and feel in a great school. The conversation was insightful, respectful and very informative. We look forward to students taking their ideas back to classes as well as to staff and our PAC as we continue on our journey to making Lady Grey even better. We are always open to ideas and opportunities that parents and other community members have for us, as well. Please don’t hesitate to come in and talk to us!

Golden Moments: Job opportunity brought couple back Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net

Gary and Sheila Bjarnason have left Golden several times over the years, but they always returned. Gary was born in the Icelandic community of Gimli, Mb. to Icelandic-Canadian parents. Growing up, Gary spoke Icelandic as his first language and he learned English as his second language. Due to a lack of employment after World War II, Gary’s father moved the family west to Parson when Gary was six years old. He has lived in the area, for the most part, ever since. Gary graduated from Columbia Valley Elementary Junior Senior High School, which was the last graduating class to come out of Parson. He was one of three students in his graduating class, which was pretty big compared to that of his wife. Sheila grew up in Edgewater, and graduated from Edgewater Elementary Senior High School. She was the only student in her graduating class. “My reunion is me, myself and I,” she laughed. Sheila decided to get into nursing out of high school and went to the University of Victoria for her studies. When she graduated, she promised her father that she would work for a year in Golden in order to be closer to him. Her work at the hospital included a little bit of everything, and it was a great learning experience for a young nurse. “There was a learning curve. In nursing school you observed a lot…The doctors were very tolerant,” she said. “They

were very understanding.” Gary worked at a sawmill out of high school but quickly decided it wasn’t for him and enrolled at the University of British Columbia. “I had too much fun in my last year so I needed to do my last year over again,” he said with a smile. He took a break from university after that and moved back to Golden to work. One day, his mother mentioned that there was a young nurse at the hospital who needed a date for a Christmas party because her original date had to leave town before a snowstorm hit. “I told my mom, ‘I can find my own dates,’ but later on I figured I didn’t have anything to lose,” he said. As it turns out, that young nurse would eventually become his wife. Sheila put aside her previous plans to leave B.C. after she met Gary. Gary went back to school in Vancouver while Sheila continued to work at the hospital in Golden. According to the Bjarnasons, many letters were exchanged while they were apart, and a few phone calls as well. Eventually Sheila moved to Vancouver to work at Vancouver General while Gary finished up his last year of his education and science degrees. Gary and Sheila planned to find jobs in Northern B.C., but fate had another idea in mind. While wandering through a job recruitment fair, Gary ran into some education board members from Golden. Gary told them he was looking for a science position, and as it happened, one was available at Golden Secondary School.

StarCROSSWORD

Gary and Sheila Bjarnason returned to Golden when Gary was offered a job at Golden Secondary School. Joel Tansey/Star Photo Gary asked Sheila if she was OKwith moving back to Golden, and they agreed to go back to Golden for a couple of years. A couple of years turned into a lifetime. and they eventually started a family together and had a daughter, Runa and a son James. The move worked out just fine for the Bjarnasons. “Golden is a different community compared to a lot of small communities. This community is one of the more caring communities I’ve seen in my experience,” Sheila said. Gary worked at Golden Secondary School until his retirement, while Sheila worked at the hospital, eventually becoming the director of nursing. Not

long after they had both retired, their daughter went to the Czech Republic to teach English as a foreign language. Her homesickness prompted Gary and Sheila to take a trip overseas. “We were there for two weeks, and we fell in love with the place. The people were wonderful,” Sheila said. The Bjarnasons decided they’d like to teach in the Czech Republic too and got jobs working in Prague. They’ve maintained contact with one of Sheila’s students, Jaromir, who visited and toured around B.C. a few years ago. While circumstances have taken them away from Golden on several occasions, fate always seemed to bring them back.

B.C. Government not ending Agricultural Land Commission Staff Writer Black Press News reports suggesting the B.C. government is considering dismantling the Agricultural Land Commission are not accurate, the minister in charge of the government’s “core review” says.

A plan outlined in documents leaked to the Globe and Mail this week is “so secret that I don’t even know about it myself,” Energy Minister Bill Bennett said in an interview. “We’re not even considering blowing up the ALC, or bringing it inside government.” Bennett said agri-

cultural land commissioners will continue to decide on applications to amend the land reserve, established 40 years ago to protect farmland from development. Bennett refused to comment on the suggestion that the province could be divid-

ed into two zones with different processes. But he said he is aware of many cases outside the southwestern part of B.C. where obviously unfarmable land remains locked in the reserve. Part of the problem has been a lack of funding to the commission, Bennett said.

The current budget adds $4 million to the commission’s budget over three years. “It’s not all their fault, it’s the way the legislation is written, it’s the way their policies have developed,” Bennett said. “All of those things add up to a lot of questionable decisions

the ALC on decisions in B.C.’s northeast. The OGC already has some authority on land use, and its role in the review is “tiny,” he said. NDP leader Adrian Dix accused the government of hiding its intentions before the May election. “After commending two separate reviews that called for the ALC to be strengthened before the election, the Liberals are now conspiring to undermine it,” Dix said. Metro Vancouver mayors, facing the most pressure to expand development, expressed alarm. “Certainly it’s disturbing if they’re throwing it out the window,” said Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters. She said some  ALR boundaries need adjustment, but beyond that, her main concerns are that the commission has been underfunded to do its job and that more effort is needed to help support the viability of farming. “It has problems, but it has its place,” Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said of the ALR. “It protects us from ourselves.”

Women’s centre soiree will be a roaring good time Jessica Schwitek editor@thegoldenstar.net

The Golden Naval Academy will be performing again at this year’s Starlight Soiree.  Star Photo

Are you a Community Oriented Person? Want to be a Part of Golden’s Largest Annual Granting Exercise? The Columbia Basin Trust/Town of Golden

Community Funds Local Selection Committee has a vacancy! This Committee is responsible for adjudicating the annual granting process for nearly $300,000 into our community from the Columbia Basin Trust’s Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs. This very rewarding role requires several meetings a year, a measure of confidentiality, and the wish to help community residents and groups reach their dreams. The committee also includes a member from Council, the Electoral Director, two directors of the Golden and District Community Foundation and two other members at large. If you would like to be a member of this very rewarding community committee, forward a detailed letter explaining why you would be a great candidate by Friday, November 15th, 2013 to: Jon Wilsgard, CAO cao@golden.ca Or drop off your letter at Town Hall located at 810 9th Street South. Questions? Address them to the email above or call 250.344.2271, Ext. 237

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre’s biggest event of the year is bringing back the Roaring ‘20s. The theme of the Starlight Soiree will be seen through the decorations in the Rec Plex, and people are encouraged to dress up, but costumes are by no means mandatory. “I think a lot of people are planning to show up in their finest ‘20s gear, but there’s no pressure,” said Kristy Archer, special events co-ordinator for the women’s centre. Some of the event mainstays will be back this year including the food challenge and the Women of the Year presentation, which is chosen through a random draw. The Whitetooth Bistro, Eleven 22, Kickin Thyme Catering, and The Island will be serving up the food for the competition this year. “We’re doing Woman of the Year, which we’re already accepting nominations for,” said Archer. “You can fill out a nomination form at the women’s centre from now until the event, or at the event, right up until the draw.” The evening will also be full of entertainment, including the Golden Naval Academy belly dancers, a Tarot card and tea leaf reader, and the A-Muse Troupe will be performing their highly acclaimed show they did in Creston. The women’s centre has the involvement of another service group in town to try and get some attention on the day of the soiree. “We always like to see the guys come out. This year we’re going to be arresting some of the men from The Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden for our Jail and Bail, the day of the Soiree outside the Post Office,” said Archer. “That will be really fun, and hopefully get some more men interested in coming out, because the men in this community really do support us as well.” The boys must raise $500 in bail to be released and attend the soiree that night. Tickets for the Starlight Soiree are available at the women’s centre, Moon River, or Bacchus Books for $20. They are also available at the door for $25, or $20 with a food donation. The doors open at the Mount 7 Rec Plex at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 21, and the event starts at 7 p.m.

Proud to honour our employees years of service.

Celebrating this year a combined 35 years of service.

Locals wanted for Christmas show Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net Motus O Dance Theatre, a group out of Toronto, is returning to Golden for a performance of A Christmas Carol on Dec.1 and locals will have a chance to join the performance through open auditions scheduled for Nov. 19. According to coartistic director and choreographer James Crocker, Motus O frequently employs the services of locals in their performances and it has always worked out for everyone involved. “We used to think that if you involved amateurs or nonprofessionals in the show that it would bring the production down, but actually we find that it brings it up,” he said.

The involvement of locals is fun for the audience and the Motus O team enjoys working with amateurs. Of course, the amateur performers benefit as well, often surprising themselves with what they can accomplish with limited training. “Our approach is we take people’s natural movements and we enhance and incorporate them. It’s very empowering for them as well, they realize ‘ah, I can do this’,” Crocker said. The amateur locals will appear in approximately five scenes, Crocker said, and will have three rehearsal sessions to get ready for the show. A Christmas Carol has been performed in many different ways over the years and Motus O’s per-

formance of the Dickens story is a lighter take on the traditional Christmas tale. “We have modernized it to a degree, and there is a lot of humour. A lot of it is based on the English style of pantomime, where we are switching characters back and forth and just having a lot of fun with it,” he said. Motus O has done

shows in Golden in the past and the group has always enjoyed performing here. “We’ve always had a great time in Golden…we’re looking forward to performing,” Crocker said. For more information about the show and how you can audition for a role in the performance, log on to kickinghorseculture.ca.

Funds available for violence prevention Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net On behalf of the Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, David Wilks, Member of Parliament for Kootenay Columbia, is calling on the local community to take action to prevent cyber and sexual violence against women and girls.  “Recent high-profile cases have made cyberviolence and sexual violence against women and girls top-of-mind concerns for Canadians,” said Minister Leitch. “Our Government is taking action by supporting projects at the local level to help prevent these forms of violence against women and girls.” “Violence against women and girls has devastating and far-reaching effects on the community,” said Wilks. “The projects supported by this call for proposals will reduce violence against women and reach out to those who have been affected by such violence. I am proud of the Conservative Government’s support for grassroots initiatives like these, which improve safety for women where they live and work.” The Conservative Government will be funding these new projects through a Status of Women Canada call for proposals entitled Cyber and Sex-

ual Violence: Helping Communities Respond. Applications by organizations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time on Dec. 1, of this year. For more information on the call for proposals and eligibility requirements, please visit women.gc.ca. In addition to this new call for proposals, the Conservative Government recently announced in the Speech from the Throne its intention to introduce legislation that will give police and prosecutors new tools to address cyberbullying. This legislation will also create a new criminal offence prohibiting the non-consensual distribution of intimate images. Since 2007, the Conservative Government has funded more than $62 million for projects to end violence against women and girls through the Women’s Program at Status of Women Canada. Government of Canada support for community-based projects has nearly doubled since 20062007, supporting more than 600 projects across the country. Later this month, the Conservative Government will recognize 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, and will mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25, 2013, as well as Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women on Dec. 6.

Long-planned CBT Trail project finally comes to fruition Golden Cycling Club Submitted On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Golden Cycling Club was able to finish a reroute of the popular CBT Mainline trail on the southern end of trail where it transitions from single track to an old road. The project had been planned for a number of years but was always moved down the priority list in the face of more pressing concerns. The trail construction was complicated by the necessity of relocating a 30-metre bridge to access the new trail and construction of three 10-metre boardwalks at various points. The inability to predict volunteer turnout made the completion of the project less than certain! Now, the completed reroute eliminates a tedious climb out of the drainage, creating an additional 1.6 kilometres of singletrack. Over 300 hours of volunteer time over a five week period went into the effort. One club member, Dave Zorn, brought in his mini-excavator to deal with the more troublesome areas and Starr Trail Solutions completed the climb with three more

CBT switchbacks. KHMR donated the use of their ATV and operator, decking materials and labour and the Rockwater hosted the après work B&B with a warm location. The help from everyone involved is truly appreciated by the GCC! This reroute was the final project of the year for GCC and by any measure 2013 was a good year for local bikers. The club secured over $45,000 in funding from Columbia Basin Trust, Western Diversification and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to complete the Mainline trail system (three new trails!) and rebuild sections of the Moonraker system. The club also spent $3,000 of its own funds to develop the new Gudjonson trail head in Nicholson, along with its accompanying Sternwheeler trail. Across the valley in the Mtn Shadow trail system, new trail signage was put in place. The riding season was characterized by long stretches of perfect weather culminating in one of our best Octobers on record. The morning following our last volunteer day saw the first dusting of snow, complete with a single bike track etched on the new trail.

Golden receives six awards from SnowRiders magazine Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net The readers of SnoRiders magazine have given Golden six Rider’s Choice awards for 2013. The awards include three gold awards in the categories of Most Challenging Riding Area, Favourite Mountain Riding Area and Favourite Scenic Snowmobiling Area, all within the province of B.C. Aaron Bernasconi of Mountain Motor Sports and the Golden Snowmobile Trail Society said that the awards are a good recognition of the effort that Golden has put into making this area an attractive option for sledders. “It’s a nice way to give the communities recognition that The Quartz Creek snowmobile area, pictured above, is one of the reasons Golden is put a lot of effort into snow- being recognized by SnoRiders magazine.

A new 36-kilometre trail running from Gorman Lake parking lot to Quartz Creek parking lot is set to open this season that will give families a chance to experience sledding in a safer environment than some of Golden’s other trail options. “That’s what I think our town needs to do…is to start attracting that market. The skier families that come to Kicking Horse for four days, maybe they want to do something like that for an afternoon,” Bernasconi said, referring to the new tourism possibilities for Golden because of the new trail. In addition to the previously mentioned gold awards, Golden received a silver award for Favourite Powder Riding in B.C. and two bronze awards for Favourite Groomed Trail Riding in B.C. and Favourite Overall Snowmobiling Area in B.C.

Public Reminder Keep Lanes and Alleys Clear The winter operations season is close at hand and cleared alleys and lanes are critical to perform these services and to ensure public safety. Permitting debris or equipment to accumulate and parking unlicensed vehicles on public lanes, alleys and boulevards or parking any vehicle in such as way that it obstructs snow removal or emergency vehicles is an offence under Traffic Regulation Bylaw 966 of the Town of Golden. Uninsured vehicles are a liability for motorists, pedestrians and winter maintenance personnel. Work crews are now surveying all streets and lanes in the municipality for compliance. Vehicles meeting these conditions may be towed at the owner’s expense and residents having debris accumulations adjacent to their properties in lanes and alleys may be charged for removal.

News Release Columbia Basin Trust grant to Golden Golf Club Golden B.C. The Golden Golf Club gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Columbia Basin Trust which delivers social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. Columbia Basin Trust was instrumental in the Golden Golf Club’s replacement of 4 power poles and purchase of replacement equipment for our Computer Back-up Server and phone system network for the clubhouse facility. These projects are very important to our facility to maintain an uninterrupted service to our clients. CBT’s support for not for profit groups such as the Golden Golf Club helps maintain economic drivers of the community to be sustainable during challenging times. The mission of the Golden Golf Club is to provide a valued golf experience in harmony with nature. For more information on the Columbia Basin Trust support of the Golden Golf Club or of the equipment replaced, please contact Wade Duchman, Superintendent, Golden Golf Club, 250-344-2762

The Golden Kicking Horse Alpine Team (GKHAT) is getting set for another season on the slopes and president Mark Baxendale is encouraged with how the program has developed in recent years. This year GKHAT will have a program for kids under 14, a first for the team. “We currently have 14 kids signed up for that program, which is great because we’re retaining kids in the sport and developing them into athletes. There is a progression plan in place,” Baxendale said. GKHAT, which has 80 kids signed up for this winter, only began identifying themselves as a race team 18 months ago. Prior to that the club focused mostly on non-competitive learning, but starting last year they began to attend races and focus on the competitive side of skiing as well. This year they are planning to attend races in Revelstoke, Lake Louise, and Panorama, with their home race at Kicking Horse scheduled for Feb. 23. Last year the club took 26 kids to Panorama and Revelstoke for races. Of course, as is the case with most non-profit organizations, fundraising is very important for GKHAT and helps keep registration costs

Athletes from GKHAT will compete in races in Revelstoke, Panorama, Lake Louise and at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort this year.  Photo Submitted to a minimum. Fees cover just the basic costs of running the program, making fundraising essential in order to cover the price of travel and equipment. The ski club is currently conducting an online auction in order to raise funds for this season. Items up for auction include weekend packages in

Kimberley, Revelstoke, Jasper and Banff as well as heli-skiing, white water rafting and Calgary Flames tickets. The auction began on Nov. 7 and will continue until Nov. 17 at 10 p.m. Those who are interested in placing a bid can find more information at the team’s website, www.GKHAT.ca.

Golden Rockets continue to struggle Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net It was another tough weekend for the Rockets on the road, as losses to the Chase Heat and the Sicamous Eagles continued a losing streak that now sits at five games. The weekend got off to a promising start on Friday night as a pair of goals by Cole Mckechney and Brett DeFrias gave them an early two goal lead. Unfortunately for the Rockets, it was all downhill from there, as the Heat brought themselves to within one, with five minutes left in the first before exploding for five goals in the second. “In the second period we just fell apart…I don’t know [what caused the collapse],” said frustrated head coach Ty Davidson. “I’m running out of answers here. It seems like every night we find a different way to lose.” The Heat scored a lone marker in the third to give themselves a 7-2 victory. Golden played much better the next night in Sicamous, but it still wasn’t enough to earn their first road victory since Sept. 27. The Eagles drew first blood with a power play goal from Nathan Grieve, but Brett Hanna responded quickly for the Rockets less than three minutes later to tie things up heading into the intermission. Defenceman Dustin Watt gave the

Rockets the lead 10 minutes into the second period when he potted his first career KIJHL goal. Golden couldn’t quite get to the dressing room with the advantage, however, as the Eagles tied it up with their second power play goal of the game with just 43 seconds left in the second frame. Harden Orton gave the Eagles an advantage that they wouldn’t relinquish when he scored four minutes into the third, sending the Rockets to their ninth straight defeat away from the Plywood Palace. According to Davidson, it is a lack of scoring that is holding back his 6-13-0-2 club from achieving success in recent games. “If we had to pinpoint one of our biggest problems over the last five or six games, it’s our lack of scoring,” he said. “That puts a lot of pressure on your goalies to try and win a game.” The Rockets will hope that some home cooking can get the team pointed in the right direction. Their next three games will be at the Golden and District Arena, where the Rockets have earned 11 of a possible 12 points over their six previous contests. The three game homestand will begin with a game Friday night against the Fernie Ghostriders. The Rockets will welcome the Spokane Braves, the KIJHL’s only American franchise, on Saturday night before hosting the Creston Valley Thunder Cats on Thursday, Nov. 21.

The image of Kicking Horse Country through a traveller’s eyes

- Turning Back the Pages By Colleen Palumbo

Isn’t it interesting how others view our little community here in the mountains? I’m always interested to read something that sheds light on the history of our little community. In this case the information came from a book called “On the Cars and Off,” Being the Journal of a Pilgrimage Along the Queen’s Highway, from Halifax in Nova Scotia to Victoria in Vancouver Island by Douglas Sladen. “Field is the weirdest place at night, with its wild black hills and spec-

tral pines outlined against the sky, especially if there be forest fires or the moon shining over the dome of Mount Stephen and the grotesque white sands of the Kicking Horse. While we were there it was made picturesque by a working camp; it had been quite a town in constructions days; there was still three hundred and fourteen log shacks(huts). It is a famous place for children; they never tire of watching the antics of one of the four great seventy-five-ton engines of the company stationed here like a tame elephant to help haul any unusually heavy load. The scenery that succeeds Field is almost indescribable. Long before you get to Field you catch your first glimpse of Hector and the big green glaciers, which

The Moberly House, pictured between 1885 and 1887, was located half way down from Golden to Donald. Photo Courtesy of the Golden Museum look like overflowings from “the grassy sea” on Hector and the hills beyond; for, with the hills above and the rivers below, this scenery is unsurpassed dignityairmiles.ca

YOUR STORY, YOUR WAY “My family knows I love to travel the world. But what they don’t know is that I’d like my final resting place to be close to home.” Ensure your wishes are met, wherever you are, with a Dignity Memorial® providerNorth America’s largest network of funeral and cemetery providers.

even on the Canadian Pacific Railway. The fierce torrent, from which the Kicking Horse Canon is named, stampedes like a waterfall all the way through a deep gorge,   that almost rivals the peerless gorges of Australia. The railway crosses and recrosses the torrent, like a salmon fisher, to utilize every available ledge. At last Golden City is about the most inappropriately named in the world. It is called ‘golden’ apparently from the silver mines of Spillimacheen in the neighbourhood – by no means the immediate neighbourhood. Why it is called a “city”

heaven only knows, for there is nothing of it beyond a postoffice, a public house, and a store or two – all built of wood. At Golden you first strike the mighty Columbia, one of the great rivers of the continent; and once a week the funniest little steamer in the world, a sort of stern-wheeled scow, takes you up to the source of the river in the exquisite Canadian Windermere, about a hundred miles above. At Golden there was a very genuine Western hotel, in which the landlord thought us exceedingly impertinent for troubling him with our presence.

Apart from elemental considerations, there is nothing old about the mountains. The oldest inhabited spot in them is Moberly (half way down from Golden to Donald), and that only dates from 1871. Mr. Walter Moberly, C.E., had a cabin there. From Golden to Donald the railway runs between the rival ranges, the rugged Rockies and the steepled Selkirks. Donald is quite a town, so important that it is one of the places where they put back the clock for an hour to correct the sun’s ridiculous habit of orientation; it has also nine hundred inhabitants, and a

resident engineer, for it is the headquarters of the mountain section of the railway, and has the repair shops. But even the engineer has not got beyond a shack, or log hut. We stayed with him a night, our only experience of log huts. Mr. G---, the engineer, a most brilliant Welshman, and his pretty young wife and sister, had made the shack a most delightful place to live in; it was just like living on board ship, except for the creepers which climbed over the huge logs of which it was built. It is wonderful what a lady’s taste will do with the roughest material.

The Métis Nation Columbia River Society has planned an event to mark Louis Riel Day. Liberal Leader Bob Rae commented on the holiday’s importance, saying, “A lifelong advocate for the condition and rights of the Métis, Riel devoted his life to the betterment of others, and his sacrifice has had an enduring influence on the Canada we know today. Above all, Riel’s life is a reminder that there is always more to be done in the celebration and protection of Canada’s minorities who add to our rich cultural fabric. As a founder of Manitoba, Riel’s legacy continues to reson-

ate today, not only in Manitoba, but across the country.” Living an existence punctuated by politics, strife and controversy, the Métis advocate has made a lasting impact on Manitoba’s history and the country as a whole. On Saturday, Nov. 16, at 1:15 p.m. at the Golden Rec Plex, Li Jigeurs Mechif will give a short performance followed by a presentation from Mayor Christina Benty. The celebration will continue at the Golden Campground, where there will be door prizes, links to a genealogist and Métis registration resources. Everyone is welcome to come for a campfire, bannock and tea to celebrate this day.

Local researcher aims to foster coexistence in Chilcotin region Wildsight Submitted Golden's Wildsight Chapter is known for the earth-friendly community initiatives it brings to the Columbia Valley and beyond, with its goal to maintain biodiversity and healthy human communities. The chapter recently supported an important conservation initiative a little further from home. This autumn, Golden's Wildsight branch made a very generous donation of $500 to support a research and outreach project undertaken by Golden's own local Sadie Parr. Parr (from the group Just Beings Wolf Conservation) is teaming up with the Valhalla Wilderness Society, Friends

of Nemaiah Valley, and the Xeni Gwet'in community of the Tsilhqot'in First Nation in an effort to help foster coexistence among wolves, grizzly bears, wild horses, livestock and people. This informed advocacy project is underway in the remote and pristine Brittany Triangle and adjacent Nemaiah Valley of B.C.'s Chilcotin. Parr has been travelling to the study area to search for and collect samples of hair and scat. These will be analyzed to help identify what wolves are eating in this unique area, home to B.C.'s wild horses in Canada's only Nemaiah Aboriginal and Wild Horse Preserve. Through interviews

of local First Nations she will also determine traditional knowledge of wolves in the study area that will supplement her research. Local ranchers, trappers, conservationists, government personnel and others will also be interviewed to determine people’s different perceptions about wolf ecology and conservation. The results of the study will be used to facilitate a better coexistence among wildlife and humans. The research ties into a much larger project the groups are working on in the Chilcotin Region which is the 240,000 hectare DasiqoxTaseko Conservancy proposal for the area. Protecting this area as a large carnivore

core conservation area would be significant on a continental scale. The quality of wolf and large carnivore habitat is largely determined by the attitudes of humans living in and

around protected areas, which is one reason why accurate information about wolf feeding ecology is required in this region. Parr is working to help establish Car-

nivore Coexistence Programs locally too, having presented to the Brisco Cattleman's group and making a "Toolkit for Ranchers" available on-line for all livestock producers to

access. The toolkit has been created for livestock producers who want to learn about methods they can use to prevent conflicts with wolves and other natural predators.
