Sawmill workers start strike action 1908 R. Pearson, chief assayer in the Ottawa mint, toured the Kootenay and Boundary districts, his object being the investigation of gold resources in the southern part of the province. 1913 President McKinnon of the Grand Forks Canning Co. petitioned city council to submit to the ratepayers a bylaw for granting by the city to the company, a bonus of $3,000, the cost of the new factory site. 1918 Shipping to outside markets about 65 cars of fruit, 50 cars of which were apples, and 1,400 tons of potatoes, together with over 20,000 bushels of wheat, the season’s output by the ranchers of Grand Forks had a value well over $150,000. 1923 When Miss Isabel Bowen, apple packer at the Growers’ Exchange, recently packed 212 boxes of apples in an eight-hour day, she jumped to the forefront of the speediest apple packers in the province. 1928 A rich vein of silver ore was uncovered at the 400-foot level in the Beaverdell-Wellington lien on Wallace Mountain, the new strike assaying about 300 ounces in silver per ton. 1933 Following the recent strike of ore at the Jewel mine, Dentonia Mines Ltd., operators announced the intention to construct a mill on the property. 1938 George Philip Percival, agent for the Canadian Pacific here for the past four years, retired after completing more than half a century of active railway service.

❚ The Way It Was

1943 At a meeting of city council, it was decided to plow and grade a runway 50 feet by 3,000 feet at the airport, to put it in shape for an emergency landing field. 1948 W.H. Docksteader, an old-time resident of the Boundary district, passed away in Vancouver after a long illness. 1953 All additional required material for the CBC repeater station for Grand Forks has arrived and is awaiting installation. The station is expected to be in operation by mid-December. 1958 More than 200 men employed at Boundary Sawmills in Midway and Grand Forks Sawmills, walked off their jobs, commencing strike action to support their wage demands of a 19-cent increase. 1963 Greenwood this week became the first community in the Boundary to receive CBC-TV broadcasts, the newly installed system operated by Greenwood Video and associates. 1968 Hon. F.X. Richter wired The Gazette that the Dept. of Highways has awarded a contract in the amount of $405,259 to City Construction Ltd. of Vancouver for work on the Southern Trans Canada Highway. 1973 Nov. 21 was the date the 75th anni-

Pet of the Week

versary of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce was celebrated at Greenwood. 1978 Council has approved a recommendation of Recreation and Cultural Services committees to permit Grand Forks Rotary Club to construct a band shell in city park. 1993 A home renovator from out of town is preying on senior citizens and bilking Boundary homeowners out of thousands of dollars, Grand Forks residents allege. 1998 Minister of Municipal Affairs Jenny Kwan traveled to Grand Forks to hear suggestions on how to overhaul the antiquated Municipal Act and help make local governments around the province more accountable to their citizens. 2003 For over 20 years Dr. Robert Walton has been experiencing Remembrance Day at a height few others would dare to match. At two minutes past the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month Walton has flown his 1951 Navion aircraft to the south of the cenotaph honouring his fellow war veterans. This year, however, the flight’s mandate changed as Walton didn’t renew his pilot’s license due to the insurance coverage being too expensive for him as a result of his age; luckily the tradition continues with Bill Gillespie donating his Cesssna Skymaster with him as pilot and Walton as navigator. 2008 Mayor-elect Brian Taylor will be taking over the leadership role for his second term in a decade, along with a number of new faces for Grand Forks city council’s upcoming term.

Conn, Cusack make new court appearances TIMOTHY SCHAFER Grand Forks Gazette

The wheels of justice continue to grind as the two men charged with setting major structure fires in Grand Forks in the last two years made further court appearances. On Monday, Nov. 25, Andre Conn, the 31-year-old Grand Forks man charged in connection to a fire that burned City Hall Sept. 19, will be in Rossland Provincial Court for his arraignment. Christoper Cusack, the man charged with setting fire to the Grand Forks and Winnipeg hotels, has a date fixed for Dec. 10

in Grand Forks. Conn still to be arraigned Conn is being charged with break and enter, arson, possession of incendiary materials, and possession of break-in instruments. The fire Sept. 19 inside City Hall caused extensive damage and was classed by police as arson. On the morning of the fire, Grand Forks RCMP apprehended Conn, referring to him in a press release as a “person of interest.” Conn was apprehended close to the scene of the fire. Boundary Regional Detachment RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim

Harrsion said it was a “very targeted incident” and that was how police investigators were treating it. Cusack back in court Cusack returned to Grand Forks court Oct. 15 to fix a hearing date for a continuation. Cusack, the man charged in connection with two fires set in the Grand Forks and Winnipeg hotels back in 2012, will appear in Grand Forks Court on Tuesday, Dec. 10. Cusack is accused of two counts of arson in relation to an inhabited property. In late September in Grand Forks Court Ken Wyllie, rep-

resenting Cusack, pleaded not guilty on behalf of his client, but did submit an admission of facts. In the admission, Cusack admitted to setting the two fires on March 7, 2012. The first fire was at the Grand Forks Hotel, destroying the building and causing $1 million in damage. The second fire was set on a motorcycle which was under a staircase at the Winnipeg Hotel. The fire spread, causing more than $10,000 worth of damage. Cusack had been at the Winnipeg drinking all day. Judge Fabrick had granted the defence an adjournment for further psychiatric assessment.

The two acts of arson destroyed the 100-year-old historic Grand Forks Hotel, while the fire at the landmark Winnipeg Hotel was limited to the rear of the building, creating smoke damage throughout the venerable structure. There were no injuries nor casualties reported but RCMP said approximately 20 people were displaced due to the fires. The fire department was able to protect surrounding buildings and damage was limited in that regard, Harrison had said. Both hotels have since been demolished with the Grand Forks Hotel site currently a vacant lot.

POLICE BRIEFS Theft from vehicle On Nov. 12 at 3:35 p.m., police received a report of someone breaking into an unlocked vehicle on a driveway on 9th Street. A bank book, bank card, cheques and $80 Canadian were taken from the car. “The obvious lesson to be learned here is to keep your doors locked or don’t keep things like that in your car,” said Staff Sgt. Harrison. Police have no suspects at this time. Public intoxication At 6:51 p.m. on Nov. 12, An individual reported an intoxicated person in the area. That person, a 31 year-old Grand Forks male, was found on Sixth Street banging on the door of a house. The man was charged with breach of the peace and public intoxication. Break and enter and theft Nov. 13 at 12:01 a.m., RCMP received a report of a break-in. “The home owner returned to his residence after being away for 10 days to find the side door was open,” said Harrison. “A stereo, tape player and television were taken.” Police have no suspects and no witnesses at this time. Mailboxes broken into Nov. 15 at 9:49 a.m. on Danshin Village Road, RCMP received a report of someone prying open the mailboxes at the bottom of the road. It’s unclear whether anything has been stolen from the mailboxes, said Harrison. There are no suspects and no witnesses at this time. Vehicular vandalism On Nov. 15 at 10:24 a.m. RCMP received a report of willful damage to a vehicle that was on Sixth Street. “The vehicle had three tires which were deflated and all but the passenger side window were smashed out,” said Harrison. “Nothing appears to be stolen. The instrument used was probably a tire iron, or something of similar nature.” RCMP did not find any items of that nature at the scene, said Harrison. “At 2:30 in the morning, the complainant heard a loud bang but didn’t associate it with anything, later to find out his vehicle was being smashed up,” he said. Police have no suspects and no witnesses at this time but urge anyone with any information to contact the Grand Forks detachment at 250442-8288.

Black Friday fest

B

lack Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. With Grand Forks located so close to the U.S. border the lure of that shopping day has had some merit in years past. Granted, it has drawn some Canadian shoppers south previously, but Boundary retailers aren’t giving any ground on this battlefield anymore. This year the businesses of the city are pooling their resources to pull people back from the border and into the city-wide sale with its own version of Black Friday. It’s a bold move and one sure to abate the lure of southern sales, offering up duty-free and cheaper deals right in our own back yard. In the U.S. Black Friday shopping is known for attracting aggressive crowds, but shopping in Canada has never been a contact sport. And this Black Friday in the city should be no different, but with better deals.

By honouring Orwell, we eliminate challenges second opinion

I

JIM HOlTZ

hate the word challenges. It used to be a good word until every government minister, deputy minister, press secretary and delegated spokesperson began to abuse it. Now the practice has filtered down to officials at the regional and municipal levels and is particularly favoured by those responsible for administering educational and social programs. There are no longer problems in public education or health services, or indeed any area of public service, only challenges. George Orwell, author of 1984 and inventor of the words doublespeak and newspeak, would smile. His observation that governments use language manipulation to help control the public has been validated once again. Of

course, the misuse of challenges pales in comparison to the U.S. military’s coining of pacification to mean the burning of a Vietnamese village, or collateral damage to mean killing non-combatant civilians, or even Richard Nixon’s use of misspoke to replace lied. Still, it is maddening. The abuse began when conservative politicians realized that they had to try to mitigate damage to social programs caused by fiscal restraint. That restraint and their conservative ideology led them to an imaginative way to solve their problems: they simply refused to acknowledge that there were any. The word problem was replaced by challenge. Up until that change was made, the cutbacks had forced those responsible for providing social services to face a series of problems; they usually had to make choices based on the lesser of two evils. Now problems and

dilemmas, plus setbacks, difficulties, delays, insufficiencies, debacles, disasters and the many adjectives that might be used to augment them, have all been replaced by one word: challenges. Is the fact that patients are often stacked up in hospital hallways where they receive little attention a healthcare travesty? Not at all. It’s a healthcare challenge. Is the lack of care provided for at risk men and women with mental health issues an ongoing disaster? Of course not, it’s merely a persistent challenge. Bullying in schools? A challenge. Health services on remote reserves? A challenge. Child poverty? Expensive prescription drugs? Elder abuse? All challenges. The problem is that the word challenge alludes to an indefinite, ongoing, non-specific, minor conflict. Saying that disastrous healthcare and education issues caused by severe and prolonged

It is time that, when a problem is called a challenge by a government official, public sector administrator or spokesperson, that person is challenged about the use of the word. Just a challenge, Mr. Smith? You wouldn’t call it a serious problem? If it is not a problem, does that mean there is no solution? Are you saying that it is going to be a continual struggle then, an unending, continual challenge? Every time we allow the word to be used without question, we are complicit in the lack of commitment and action that it represents. Jim Holtz is a Boundarybased writer.

Letters

to the editor

Use resources to fix problems To the Editor: Beverly Tripp is obviously concerned about anything that might encourage or make it more likely for children to use marijuana, such as changing its legal status (“Sensible BC petition not so sensible,” Gazette, letter to the editor, Nov. 6.). Unfortunately, she assumes that because two conditions exist, one has caused the other. Specifically, she suggests that because a high proportion of inmates use drugs, the drugs are responsible for them being in prison. In one sense she is correct. When you criminalize an activity that is already one of the few ways disadvantaged youths have of surviving, and then incarcerate those found guilty, you further reduce their opportunities for education, employment and normal lives. Once this happens, the chances of them using and selling drugs to cope with poverty and hopelessness increases even more. Knowing this, the sensible solution would be to recognize drugs and alcohol as social and medical problems and make appropriate treatment widely available. To conclude, however, that drugs make people into criminals isn’t logical. It is like saying that crack cocaine makes people into hedge fund manag-

iNFORM

Opinion

ers because many hedge fund managers become crack cocaine addicts (see “The Buy Side, A Wall Street Trader’s Tale of Spectacular Excess” by Turney Duff). Or that alcohol causes people to become doctors, because doctors have amongst the highest rates of alcoholism of any profession. Making medical problems into crimes hurts those who are thrown in prison and causes trauma in our communities. By all accounts the “war on drugs” has been a spectacular failure, so whom does it benefit? Increasingly, it benefits those who own, operate and work in prisons. Mainly in the U.S. (Canada is usually not far behind), prisons are being privatized and rely on a steady increase in the numbers of inmates to keep profits and job levels high. Drug users are easy pickings. If Tripp had asked slightly different questions of her inmates, she would have realized that most came from abusive and/or disadvantaged backgrounds. Rather than wasting billions on policing, court processes and imprisonment, let’s use our resources to fix the underlying problems and strengthen our communities. Richard Tarnoff, Grand Forks

Don’t applaud antics of Ford To the Editor: Jim Holtz, you should have gotten a third opinion before you submitted your Nov. 6 column. We do not have to love Toronto Mayor Rob Ford—a ‘simple man’ with an out-of-control temper (and life) with a foul gutter mouth. If ‘He is the perfect example of Everyman’, then heaven help us. But he is not. We ‘haven’t all been drunk in public and made fools of ourselves,’ nor would all else you describe fit the mainstream citizens of Grand Forks. The American nighttime comedians are having a field day at our expense, laughing at the type of person who is running Canada’s largest city. The citizens of Toronto certainly need to be concerned about their “tax dollars, morality, honour, respect and legality” regardless of what you say. If you have lowered your standards to such an extent that you applaud Rob Ford, I wouldn’t brag about it nor publish it. Joan Enquist, Grand Forks

A great event for Grand Forks

The significance of the Granby smelter to the development of the City of Grand Forks was definitely one of its great events

R

esidents of the Riverside Drive area north of Barbara Ann Park in Grand Forks rousing have a daily reminder that they live the rabble across the river from a mining operation, but one of a different kind. ROY RONAGHAN What they are witnessing is the extraction of what was a waste product 114 years ago when the first furnace at the Granby smelter was blown in and the smelting process that produced the slag began. The slag deposit is now classified as a mine site and is so signed. Slag is valuable for its abrasive qualities and each day several truckloads are hauled to the Pacific Abrasives and Supply Co. Inc plant at 2465 Carson Road south of the city for shipment to the United States. In 1997 Jim and Alice Glanville, local historians and long-time residents of Grand Forks, published The Life and Times of Grand Forks-Where the Kettle River Flows, a Centennial History of Grand Forks. The book covers the history of the city from its incorporation in 1897 to its 100th birthday in 1997. The authors gave the Granby smelter extensive coverage. The Glanvilles describe the view looking east from Spencer Hill in the 1800s across the valley that was called Grand Prairie. “Perhaps we could spend a little time visualizing the Grand Prairie of one hundred years ago as we stand near the look-out on Spencer Hill. “In the distance, nestled at the forks of the Kettle River and the North Fork of the Kettle River, lies the fledgling city of Grand Forks with a population of 500. Sheltered at the base of Observation Mountain, this bustling community is poised for great events just around the corner.” The view from Spencer Hill today and the city itself bear little resemblance to the 1800s description provided by the Glanvilles. The “Grand Prairie” is no longer recognizable. On April 15, 1897, the small community located where the Granby River (North Fork) joins the Kettle River was incorporated as the City of Grand Forks. The new city occupied 160 acres of land given to Roger Moore, a former sapper with the Royal Engineers who came from England at the request of Governor James Douglas. The boundaries of the new city located on Lot 108 were the Granby River on the east, the Kettle River on the south, and what are now known as 13th Street and 75th Avenue. Moore’s land grant was known as “special settlement land” near the international boundary. The “fledgling city” did grow and some great events did occur. The discovery of copper ore on Phoenix Mountain, the construction and operation of the Granby copper smelter, and the arrival of the railways were three. Reports state that the smelter site was chosen because of available water and electric power. A group of men from Granby, Quebec formed the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting and Power Company Ltd. and built the smelter that operated from 1899 to 1919. According to reports, its stack stood 150 feet high and required 458,000 bricks in its construction. At its peak, the smelter operated eight furnaces that produced 430,000 pounds of blister copper each day. In addition, 550 tonnes of coke from the Crowsnest area were burned each day in the smelting process. Ore was hauled by horses from Phoenix in two-tonne loads until July 1900 when a load arrived by train. Five-car trains carried 150 tonnes. They entered the smelter site from the north, traveling across the river at the Granby Dam. The slag piles are now the only reminder that the largest non-ferrous smelter in the British Empire once provided employment for 400 men. The smelter shut down on June 21,1919 when the price of copper dropped and the Phoenix mines closed. The significance of the Granby smelter to the development of the City of Grand Forks was definitely one of the great events that were “just around the corner.” Roy Ronaghan is a Christina Lake-based writer.

Elder abuse a growing concern

I

would like to talk this month on a subject that concerns everyone, all families and government: elder abuse. Since 2002, the FederalProvincial and Territorial seniors’ forum has led a number of initiatives to raise awareness of elder abuse, particularly the financial abuse of seniors. At this year’s meeting in Yellowknife, a print and online brochure was approved to help seniors make the right choices when setting up a power of attorney or joint bank account with another person. When we hear the word “abuse,” our first thoughts may be of physical abuse. Most reports of abuse suffered by seniors relate to financial abuse, and it is often perpetrated by a family member or a trusted person. Our financial institutions are often aware that accounts of aging customers show unusual activity, but in many circumstances they are not empowered to intervene. Exploring partnerships with the financial services sector to distribute infor-

MLA view linda larson mation to their clients, and educating employees, neighbours, friends and families will be crucial to identifying and preventing the financial exploitation of seniors. The federal government has produced a series of very informative television ads that you might have seen. There are resources regarding financial abuse available on www.SeniorsBC.ca. In B.C., work is underway to implement the provincial elder abuse prevention strategy launched in March 2013. A common theme that emerged from consultations to inform the development of the strategy was the need for collaboration and coordinated action across all sectors, prioritizing the voices of seniors and those who care for them.

We hope that the strategy will facilitate opportunities for all members of society to play their part to reduce elder abuse. The people of the Boundary-Similkameen have had a busy October. I’d like to extend my congratulations to all the businesses and volunteers who were recognized by their peers, and presented with awards in the Boundary. It was also great to see the hard work of the Similkameen Valley Tourism Initiative move forward with great support and positive feedback. This is the wonderful month in the South Okanagan-Similkameen when we celebrate our wineries, and many are recognized for their excellent vintages. Thank you to the volunteers of Oliver’s Festival of The Grape, a festival that continues to bring visitors from all over the world to experience our beautiful area that we have the privilege of enjoying every day. Linda Larson is the MLA for Boundary-Similkameen.

The new website for the community of Christina Lake is up and running. Christinalake.ca is a one-stop shop for residents and visitors alike covering everything from local history to chamber of commerce information to living in Christina Lake to Christina gateway community development. “Our website needed to be brought up to date and made more interactive,” said Sandy Mark, community coordinator at Christina Lake, about the launch of christinalake.ca. “The new website is a lot more interactive and can also come up on people’s mobile phones. “It’s a website that we can get in and change anything ourselves fairly easy, which is really helpful.” Mark said they’ve tried to make the website a full community website.

There are pictures of them and what they do and who to contact and so on.” There is also a section on community economic development and what people in the region are trying to do to bolster the economy in Christina Lake.” The website also has stories about Christina, the lady who the town and lake were named after. “It explains how it came to be and how she was the first woman shopkeeper in B.C. and all that background is on there,” said Mark.

Geek dreams realized with new console release

B

lack Friday is just around the corner in Grand Forks and that usually signifies the start of Christmas shopping. Of course, with the release of the Playstation 4 (PS4) console on Nov. 15 and the Xbox One (XBone) on Nov. 22, Christmas has come early for video game fans. Full disclosure, I have not been able to get my hands on either system as of this writing. As of now, demand for the new consoles is far exceeding supply. I am hoping I will luck into one or the other soon, but we’ll see. The Playstation 4, made by Sony, came first to the party. It is the successor to the Playstation 3, of course. The XBone is the follow up to the Xbox 360, made by Microsoft. Both systems have similar builds with 500 gigabyte hard drives, online gaming, share capabilities, and so on. The PS4 is about $100 cheaper but the XBone comes with Kinect, the camera that allows the user to operate the system by voice as well as play games using hand and leg gestures. Apparently, it can even detect your heartbeat and recognize facial expressions. Some people are up in arms that the government will use the Kinect camera to spy on people, at least in the States. I’m sure it won’t be long before it’ll be able to detect how much money you have in your wallet and pluck it out. Of course, although consoles are becoming more like computers and run applications like Netflix and Hulu Plus, the main function, and the reason people will pay hundreds or dollars, is to play games. In the past, games at launch have tended to be sparse. This time around there are some good ones out there it looks like. PS4 has Killzone Shadow Fall as its big launch exclusive, while XBone is looking

On the ball craig lindsay at Dead Rising 3 as a big name exclusive. Launch games available for both systems include a new Call of Duty game (Ghosts), Battlefield 4, NBA 2K14, FIFA 14 and Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. So it’s out with the old and in with the new. But before I throw out all my old games, here’s my top 10 old school games. By old, I mean, last generation, which was formerly this generation and once next generation but now next generation is this current generation. So, umm, best PS3 and Xbox 360 games. But first, the worst, or at least most overrated: The Assassin’s Creed series always seems a lot of fun at the start, climbing and running on buildings and trying to push people over. But once the missions start, it gets pretty repetitive and boring. The Mass Effect trilogy was huge, but I was never impressed with the shooting mechanics and didn’t care enough about the story. 1. Bioshock/Bioshock Infinite – Both are amazing games. Bioshock 2 is pretty good too. They create a world very different from our own. Idealic, perfect utopian worlds that disintegrate quickly into warravaged, mostly destroyed remnants of their former glory. Bioshock 1 and 2 were set in Rapture, a city under the sea, while Infinite was set in Columbia, a city floating in the sky. My head is still reeling from the end of the latter. 2. Portal/Portal 2 – Portal came totally out of left field. (Actually out of Valve’s Orange Box collection) It featured a very simple idea of a gun that shoots two portals, one where you jump

through and one where you come out of. The puzzles get increasingly harder and harder. Making it even more fun is the twisted sense of humour of GLADos, your sort of coach. 3. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – A very expansive world to explore as a courageous adventurer. Hundreds of missions and sub-missions keep the gamer busy for hours and hours as you decide with group to side with in an epic civil war. Plus, you know, dragons! 4. Red Dead Redemption – The Grand Theft Auto crew (Rockstar) delve into westerns. And knock it out of the park! Wow, what a beautiful, open world game with lots to do. Great atmosphere and really strong shooting mechanics are in place as well as a decent multiplayer component. You’ll feel like you’re back in the wild west but with indoor plumbing. 5. Fallout 3 – RPG (Role playing game) fun in a postapocalyptic setting. Exploring is always a lot of fun but watch out for ghouls as well as the odd trap. 6. Borderlands/Borderlands 2 – Hundreds of unique guns and some very quirky, funny characters made this series popular among first person shooter fans in a hurry. 7. Call of Duty series – Not known much for their single player campaigns, Call of Duty has always been

about the online game. Free for all, deathmatches, capture the flag, and so on, are all a whole lot of fun as your army dude levels up. Are you going to prestige? 8. Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 – I wasn’t a big fan of GTA 4 with it’s slow story, lack of helicopters and big weapons. And the man dates. Rockstar bounced back big time with this gigantic game where you actually play as three very different protagonists across a sprawling map. There’s an interesting online component as well that offers gamers a chance to buy houses, weapons and vehicles while playing deathmatches, races and other games against others. 9. Halo 3/Halo Reach – This Xbox 360 exclusive series features solid single player campaigns but is more well known for its epic online battles. More futuristic than Call of Duty, Halo games offer laser rifles, rocket boots and the deadly energy sword. Also features cool vehicles like the hovering Ghost and the flying Banshee. 10. NBA 2K12 – Michael Jordan on the front cover? Yes, thank you. Dozens of the greatest basketball teams through history? I’ll take it. Even without EA’s NBA franchise to compete with, 2K brought the excitement. Craig Lindsay is a reporter with the Grand Forks Gazette.

PUBLIC NOTICE Do you have questions regarding your utility bills?

city - pub notice

During the months of the July/August billing cycle you may have noticed your utility bill was different than usual. The City uses a handheld device to read the utility meters. Unfortunately during this cycle the hand held device became inoperable. This resulted in City staff estimating the cost of usage which was then applied to your utility bill. September/October billing was adjusted to bring total charges over the previous four months to reflect actual usage over the same four months. The City has since replaced the hand held utility meter readers that were used in the last billing cycle. Please feel free to give us a call at 250.442.8266 if you have any questions regarding your utility bill. Phone: 250-442-8266 • Email: info@grandforks.ca • Web: www.grandforks.ca

“It’s timely. In order for the city to move forward with asset management funding with the provincial and federal government this is the criteria that they say we have to have in place or we go to the bottom of the pile.” Doug Allin, city administrative officer (CAO) for Grand Forks, said the city has to prepare a tender if the project is to be started in 2014. “We should really have the project up and rolling in the spring of 2014,” he said. “In order for us to develop a timeline now, we’ll need the funding in place for the project.” Allin said that the Gax Tax money can only be spent on projects that reduce the city’s carbon footprint. “If we don’t have a water metering program in place, we don’t qualify for other senior level funding,” he added. “So we would miss on potentially anything to fund our asset management plan.” Allin said the city has already begun mapping water services so they are able to shut them off when the water meters are being installed. The water metering program will be a user pay program, said Allin. “You won’t be subsidizing others around you,” he said. “You only pay for what you use. So if you choose to use less, you’ll pay less. The biggest piece in this—is that we save millions of dollars right from the get-go just because of our infrastructure sizing.”

With Mayor Brian Taylor in Vancouver for a meeting, and councilors Gary Smith and Michael Wirischagen absent, it was a small table and a short agenda at the Grand Forks city council meeting on Nov. 12 at the old CanPar building. Coun. Cher Wyers chaired the meeting saying it was

her turn as a rotating deputy mayor. Gary Smith – pest control At the Grand Forks council meeting on Nov. 13 council received a declaration from Coun. Gary Smith, who was absent, outlining that he has been providing pest control services to the city and will

continue to provide such services. “He’s been forthwith with the information,” said Wyers. “He has to have council approval. It’s not a significant amount of money. He has the expertise and there’s no one else in the community that does it.”

Passing lanes complete Work is now complete on the construction of the McIntyre Passing Lanes on Highway 97 between Oliver and Okanagan Falls. This major safety improvement upgraded approximately 1.5 kilometres of the highway with passing lanes in both directions. This project is located between the communities of Oliver and Okanagan Falls, north of Gallagher Lake. The highway upgrades includes passing lanes in each direction with a paved 2.6-metre centre median, two-metre wide shoulders, rumble strips and roadside barrier where required. The new passing lanes will provide assured passing opportunities between Oliver and Okanagan Falls, while reducing delays, traffic queuing, and driver frustration. Work was completed on Nov. 7.

Invention brings comfort to grieving Grand Forks Gazette

Death and dying is something that is generally not discussed openly in our society. Yet it’s something we will all face at some point for our aging parents and other family members and friends. After taking care of her mother, Willa Reams, in Grand Forks during her final weeks, Kathrin Reams came up with the idea of the Willa Wrap, a device used to keep the mouth closed after death. “I was taking care of Mom between Sept. 2, 2010 and Oct. 2, 2010, she wasn’t really happy that when she dozed off to sleep at night that her mouth was open,” said Kathrin. “My mom said to me, ‘I must look awful sitting here with my mouth open.’ Being an avid quilter, she told me, ‘I have this stretchy, looped fabric in other room. Can you bring it to me?’ She put it on under her chin and over her head. When she fell asleep, her mouth wasn’t wide open. It wasn’t clamped tightly shut. It didn’t interfere with her breathing or anything. She just loved it. It made her feel more dignified and just at peace knowing her mouth wasn’t hanging open.” Kathrin said her mom wore the device for about two and a half weeks before she passed away. While running in the morning one day, Kathrin came up with the idea to name the product after her mother, Willa, who inspired her. “I came in from my run and said, ‘Mom, it’s going to be called the Willa Wrap. It’s going to be named after you,’” said Kathrin. Kathrin said her mom kept the product on when she was in a coma and died

wearing it. When her dad went to put everything away, he took the wrap off of her. “Her jaw just dropped wide open,” said Kathrin. “He said, ‘I should just put that back on, shouldn’t I?’ I thought, ‘yeah dad.’ Even though I was a nurse, I was a daughter first. I kind of hit me that I had been at so many bed sites where the family asks for me to close the mouth. I thought, ‘Here’s a way— the Willa Wrap.’” Kathrin was born and raised in Washington State. She came with her parents to Canada at the age of nine and became a dual citizen. She lived here for 30 years before moving back to the United States. She currently lives in Loveland, Col., near Denver—the town where they send out all the valentines, she says. Her parents, Willa and Roger, came to Grand Forks after both retired in 1998. Roger still lives in town and has remarried. Willa was very active and well known with the Sunshine Quilter’s Guild in Grand Forks. “She made so many beautiful quilts,” she added. “We all have beautiful heirlooms from mom. All the grandchildren got a quilt. She would make them for different organizations for raffles.” One of Willa’s quilts, He Walks With Me, hangs in the lobby of the Boundary Hospital. Kathrin is now testing and marketing the Willa Wrap full-time. Due to regulations, the Willa Wrap is being sold as being for after death. She hopes to eventually do trials and receive permission to sell the product for before death. “Right now, the use is only for after death even though my mom used it be-

fore,” said Kathrin. “I can’t market it (for) before. It’s just for after to close the mouth and maintain dignity and leave that peaceful expression and a nice comforting feeling for the families. “It’s comforting for them to see their loved ones with their mouth closed because you and I don’t walk around with our mouths open. Yet when we die, we lay there with our mouth open and that look is uncomfortable to families. They’re always asking to close it.” She has made a few sales so far including several to Brett Wilson of Dragon’s Den, who plans to give them out to Calgary-area hospices at Christmas.

Take your kid to Work Day

“this day gave students the opportunity to look into a career field that interested them”

SIMONE GENTRY

As a student going into high school it can be kind of freaky to think that you are being asked to choose a career now that might well last for the rest of your life. Please, I can’t even decide what my favorite color is (blue or purple?)! To ask us to commit to a career so early in life seems silly, although not unreasonable (we have to decide sometime). Thankfully, rather than jumping blindly ahead into a career, there’s “Take your kid to work day”. Last Wednesday, November 6th this event gave students the opportunity to try out a career for a day. GFSS grade nine students spent the day shadowing a parent, relative, or even just a really great family friend at work. “Take your kid to work day” helps prepare students to choose where they want to go with their education and planning. Who knows? It might be to become a veterinarian, or a firefighter, or maybe even a master chef. With all the different choices it can be really hard to decide and no one knows 100% what they are going to do, although most do have a bit of an idea. This day gave students the opportunity to look into a career field that interested them, GFSS students shadowed jobs in RCMP, Ministry of Forest, Conservation, and many others.

Riley Bolster (above) went to Derek’s Automotive for Take Your Kid to Work Day. He spent the day working on cars. Merrit Bleschuk (to the left) visited Kettle River Veterinary and spent the day dealing with all sorts of animals

Express Your Self!

“it is important not to let others dictate how to convey and articulate your emotions and opinions” ELENA PLOTNIKOFF

Who are you? Are you the person you are at school? The person you are around family? Or the person you are around friends? With so many different aspects of your personality on display, it can become difficult to translate your true feelings. Being able to convey your thoughts through genuine conduits can be beneficial to overall wellbeing. Self-expression in the form of music, sculpting, painting, drawing, writing, fashion, photography, baking, dancing, or even screaming into a pillow provides a necessary format for putting yourself into a tangible and honest personal framework. Creation through movement or communication allows you to be your true self in whatever form without focusing on a specific outcome other than bettering

Ben Garrison poses with his original charcoal drawing that he has been working on in Art Class for just over a month. Ben has been honing his drawing skills for over four years , gradually embracing charcoal as his favorite medium yourself. Art, creation, and design are an expository and yet are metaphorical representations of oneself so it is important not to let others dictate how to convey and

articulate your emotions and opinions. Whenever you are feeling unsure of yourself take the opportunity to interpret yourself through self-expression.

TYRA REXIN

The Senior Girls volleyball team played exceptionally well in their home tournament on November 8th and 9th. Teams attending the tournament included Osoyoos, Nakusp, J.V. Humphries, and BCSS. The Wolves played some tough games over the course of the weekend but put their A-game on in order to beat J.V.H. on Friday evening. Our Senior Girls placed third overall in the tournament, devoting full effort to defeating Osoyoos in their final game. Although they may not have finished in first, the Wolves continue to make us proud with their determination to succeed and their constant improvement. The Grade Eight Girls volleyball team headed to Castlegar on Wednesday, November 13th for a play day at Stanley Humphries. The girls came home with both wins and

losses, but played extremely well, with evident improvement in their playing ability. The girls will be traveling to Mt. Sentinel on Saturday, November 23rd for their final tournament. Good Luck Wolves! Now that the volleyball season is coming to a close, basketball practices are starting up. The Senior Boys basketball team was given a head start as they began with dropin basketball even before regular practices had begun. The Senior Girls have also begun practices as of Monday, November 18th and are eager to jump into the season. The grade eights, as well as the juniors, will be beginning practices as soon as possible. Students involved in the program are more excited than ever to get back into the rhythm of basketball, many feeling as though it can’t come soon enough!

IN BRIEF Grad class of 2014 hard at work The Class of 2014 is hard at work raising money for their graduation celebrations. Their theme is Las Vegas and their ambition is to provide fabulous food, action, excitement and epic prizes, enticing all grads to spend an entire night together, embracing the spirit of dry grad. A celebratory breakfast is scheduled to complete the festivities. In the past month, the grads have raised well over $1,500, an excellent beginning to their targeted goal of $20,000. Successful events include the district-wide Grade 5-7 Halloween dance, the Small Business Servers Dinner and the Halloween Maze at Mars Magic Touch (thank you Marlene, for your enthusiastic support). This coming Saturday, Nov. 23 is the annual Christmas Craft Fair, with more than 50 vendors displaying their wares in the gym at GFSS. In addition to hosting the event and running the concession, the grads will be selling poinsettas and tickets to see comedian Ken Valgardson, who will be entertaining at the GFSS auditorium on Friday, Jan. 31. Childcare for this performance will be provided by donation, but pre-registration for this service is encouraged. Fundraisers in the new year include a bottle drive, comedian performance, borscht feed and a spaghetti feed. For additional information, suggestions or support, please contact Tyra Rexin or Larissa McKinley at GFSS at (250) 442-8285.

Change in RDKB administration Area director for Midway, Marguerite Rotvold, reported that an Oct. 30 Regional District of Kootenay Boundary board meeting has changed the level of administrative support available to the Midway part of the regional district west of the Paulson Summit The RDKB is now scheduling John MacLean, Mark Andison and Alan Stanley to work out of the Boundary office in Grand Forks for two days each month. MacLean is the RDKB chief administrative officer, Andison has recently been promoted to general manager of Operations and deputy CAO, and Stanley is general manager of environmental services. Rotvold said this change is intended to give rural and municipal directors, as well as Grand Forks staff, better access to senior staff of the regional district.

There’s no show like it anywhere in B.C. It’s an intimate part of Boundary culture. On Friday, Nov. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 30, 15 artisans converge at gallery 2 in the historic courthouse for the seventh annual Artisan Christmas Faire. Surrounded by stained glass, wood and the arts, these artisans will bring their best work from the last 12 months to give people a chance to browse their work and shop for holiday gift giving. People will discover beautiful, handmade artisan crafts while listening to the melodious songs from the harp, played skillfully by Jenn Fenn. Or have a seat in the café right in the gallery, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, Christmas baking, or even have lunch. This year’s café supports the 2014 high school grads, the city’s future leaders and artists. Bring a friend and enjoy a distinctive day of holiday magic at gallery 2. When you visit gallery 2 on that weekend, you’ll find the artists on both floors—this year’s show sold out by October and it’s full to capacity. The holiday joy and comfort is brimming over, ready for you to enjoy on the last weekend in November. On the first floor you’ll find pottery by Erika VonBank from College Road Pottery and the whimsical painted pottery of PotterBees’ Sandy-Jo Lewis. Jewelry and stained glass by Tracey Jory and Alex Semenoff’s distinctive wood turnings are back from previous shows. The youthful artworks of Emma and Caitlin Tkach, with their distinctive holiday cards, will give you joy just looking at the bold colours and designs. Upstairs in the east gallery you’ll be greeted with the sparkling gemstones and original jewelry designs by Sonya Wood. She often sells out of her handcrafted jewelry and ornaments, so come early for the best selection. New this year are Marlene Thomas and Bonnie Freeman. Marlene, of Mars Magic Touch, has her own pampering oils and spa treatments to grace your gift

giving. Bonnie brings her handmade artisan soaps. In the Reid gallery upstairs, surrounded by paintings and stained glass and the melodic notes from the harp, this year’s artisans will blow your preconceptions. Artist Leta Bak is back with her scenes of the Phoenix ski hill and Boundary country living. Leta’s work is maturing and you’ll find some remarkable paintings to grace your home. Award winning baker Max Nicholson has his amazing cupcakes and some holiday baking. Max graduates this year and you’ll want to talk to him about his future plans. They are pretty thrilling. Jill Gunnarson is upstairs with her unique jewelry made with precious metals and semi-precious stones. New artisans include Terry of Paper Garden, Mel Black with dipping sauces and preserves, and Nicole Hirtz. This year you just might leave the gallery with more artwork than you planned. An exciting new feature will have you coming back for more. When you make a purchase from one of the artisans or from the gallery gift shop, you’ll receive a draw ticket. Put one part of the ticket in the draw for the hour, and you enter for a chance to win the door prize– your pick of any of the artisan crafts offered for the draw. You’ll have a chance to win every hour, so be sure and stick around and enjoy the show and come back on Saturday. You could take home a special piece of Boundary culture, for free.

Hello movie lovers of Grand Forks, this time I will write about the recent play put on by Rivers’ Edge Theatre Society called Becky’s New Car. It was a dull Saturday afternoon so going to the theatre seemed like a very good idea. It was held this time at the GEM Theatre and was most suitable for this type of entertainment. As usual, many people thronged into the theatre, so many of them I knew which makes for a most delightful afternoon. The story is about a

middle-aged housewife, very well played by Yvonne Dubreil. She has quite the dialogue in the beginning, telling the audience about herself and her life. The setting is in her home and her office, done well with clever lighting. Gary Smith played her husband, a roofer, and as usual Gary delivers his lines with great panache. At first I thought it a little on the slow side, but it gathered momentum as the plot unfolded. Other cast members equally talented were Ted Invictus, Mike Elliot, James Elliot and Norma Bicknell, to

name but a few. Margo Evers was the director and praise goes to her also for a very good performance. This play gets many laughs, and it seemed to me that the cast was enjoying themselves very much, hence the audience does also. It was a clever production and full marks to all involved as it takes many hours of preparation to put on a play like this. I think that the artistic life of this town is very good indeed and hope to see many more plays of this caliber in the future. Well done Rivers’ Edge.

New chamber board an advocate for business

IN BRIEF Budget consultations Balanced budgets, taxation improvements and measures to enhance natural resource and economic development are among the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services’ recommendations released in its report on the public consultations for Budget 2014. The report summarizes the input received during the five-week consultation period. Other recommendations seek to strengthen K-12 and postsecondary education, health care, and community and social services. Proposals are also made for environmental protection and to ensure equitable access to justice. During consultation, the committee held public hearings in 17 communities and issued a call for written submissions and responses to an online survey. A total of 674 submissions were received from individuals and organizations. “The report makes 73 recommendations based on what we heard from British Columbians,” said committee chair Dan Ashton. “The committee worked collaboratively throughout this process and unanimously agreed to all of the recommendations.” The committee’s report, along with further information on the budget consultation process, is available at: http://www.leg.bc.ca/cmt/finance/.

The Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce held its annual general meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at gallery 2. James Wilson, executive director of the chamber, said the event was well attended with both board members and members of the public present. “It was definitely a quick business meeting but a good time to network and enjoy the great snacks and hors d’oeuvres,” he said. Amidst the flurry of tasty treats, the board also elected three new members (Sylvia Burch, Robbie Levin and Shannon Profili) and conducted other business. “We have a real strong, healthy board,” said Wilson. “We’ve got some good initiatives coming up. We’ve got the ambassador program, the community

calendar and the family friendly business as a few examples. We’re also looking at how we can work with the city of Grand Forks and the other communities.” The ambassador program kicked off this summer with several volunteers donning the mantle. When the chamber has a major event they’ll be there and helping out with tourists, said Wilson. “It’s in the early stages,” he said. “We’ve got some volunteers. We’re looking at re-

launching it in March when the tourist season picks up again.” The family friendly business program is set up to identify businesses that are friendly for nursing mothers. “The idea is if we were driving through town and we needed a place for my wife to breastfeed or warm up a bottle or change diapers, a restaurant or other business would be okay for them to do that,” said Wilson. “There’s a little symbol that you put on the window of

The Grand Forks Bruins pee wee hockey team won gold at a tournament held last weekend in Nelson.

A man is in a hospital bed completly wrapped up in a body cast. One of the nurses gave him a rectal thermometer and said, “Don’t move – I’ll be right back.” When she returned the thermometer was in his mouth. She asked in amazement, “How did you get that in your mouth, you can’t even move?” Then the man said, “I hiccupped.”

Grand Forks Bruins pee wee team took the gold at a tournament in Nelson this past weekend. The tournament featured 12 teams from throughout the Koote-

nay and Okanagan. The Bruins started off with a win against the Kelowna Ice Hawks before losing their first game of the season against the North Okanagan Knights. “The loss served as a learning lesson for

the team,” said coach Ron Vautour. “After the loss, the players realized the importance of working together and team play.” After that initial loss, Grand Forks bounced back to defeat both Kaslo and Trail

before meeting the host Nelson Leafs in the final. The Bruins won the final game easily, beating Nelson 6-3. The Bruins pee wee hockey team heads over the hill again next weekend for a tournament in Castlegar.

Wellness Month highlights November at aquatic centre On Monday, Nov. 25 the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre will be holding its annual Food Bank Day.

Bruins run out of steam at home CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

It was far from home sweet home for the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Saturday. Coming off two road wins, the Bruins returned to the Grand Forks Arena and lost to Summerland Steam 4-2 despite out-shooting them 48-30. After a scoreless first period, Josh DaCosta and Reid Brown put the Steam up 2-0 midway through the second period. “We had a couple of mental lapses and the other team took advantage and the puck ended up in the back of our net,” said Bruins forward Connor Gross. “We got away (from our strong start in the first period). They were tired, the played the night before. We should’ve taken advantage of that. But we played down to their level instead of ours.” A pair of goals from Bruins’ Kyle Dolly tied the score early in the third period, but that was all for scoring for the home side as the Steam took over the rest of the game. The Bruins ran out of steam against the Summerland squad in the final frame, said Gross. “We just couldn’t put the puck in the net,” he said. “We had lots of shots but couldn’t put it in. We should’ve had a couple of goals.” Dylan Burton picked up the winning goal for the visitors at 11:06 of the third period, while Daylan Robertson scored an empty netter with one second left to seal the victory for Summerland. Dominic Stadynk stopped 26 of 30 shots in net for the Border Bruins. The fact the Bruins have been so successful on the road but have not enjoyed that scenario at home was not lost on Gross. “I don’t know what it is. I like playing on the

The Bruins have yet to play Golden this year. “Hopefully, we can get a couple of wins in front of the home crowd,” said Gross. “We haven’t heard much about Golden. (Nelson) is really fast.

Mint’s agency, whose Kootenay clients include Anne DeGrace, Holley Rubinsky, and Cindi Sand-Eveland, will be the first in Canada acting for authors of e-books and print-on-demand works. “I’m feeling like a kid again,” the industry veteran says. “I’m having an absolute ball learning all of this. I think the potential is awesome.” Before moving to Nelson in 2004, Mint’s long publishing career took him to the top of Penguin Canada, where in six years he increased sales fivefold. He also had his own publishing firm and distributed books that sold millions, like the Guinness Book of Records and Ripley’s Believe it or Not! All along he’s been a staunch advocate for Canadian authors and books — and in recent years, a benefactor to the Kootenay literary scene. As part of his latest venture, Mint will match authors with editors and cover designers, and help them with marketing. But on top of that he has an arrangement with eBOUND Canada, a non-profit wing of the Association of Canadian Publishers, giving his clients a

leg up on the digital marketplace. As with the rest of his business, he takes a 15 per cent commission. “I want to work with writers and help them help themselves,” he says. “Opportunities for authors are dwindling in terms of where they can get published in Canada. A great many are looking at selfpublishing and doing it on their own.” With recent bankruptcies and mergers in the Canadian publishing industry, Mint expects fewer new titles in print. However, he predicts tremendous growth in electronic self-publishing, noting that ebooks already account for up to 25 per cent of Simon & Schuster‘s

US sales. It doesn’t hurt that e-books are a lot cheaper to produce than their print counterparts. (Mint points to one author who spent $22,000 selfpublishing through an Ottawa company.) He’s not abandoning the business of finding publishers for manuscripts, nor is he going to be less choosy about who he takes on. “I’m going to use the same selective judgment. Will I accept everybody? No.” Mint already has some writers and titles in mind, including one he couldn’t sell to a publisher. In addition to new works, he says e-publishing is a good way to resurrect outof-print books whose rights have reverted to

the author. Once he accepts a writer, he’ll work with them to decide if a given manuscript is better suited to seeking a publisher or self-publishing as an e-book and printon-demand. Authors determined to selfpublish in larger quantities he’ll steer elsewhere. Mint says some self-published authors might not see the benefit to having an agent, but others find navigating all the steps by themselves overwhelming. Furthermore, individual writers won’t be able to access eBOUND. “Authors want to do it on their own, but the time and energy [required] is crazy,” Mint says. “I don’t want to be a publisher or a distributor in the conventional sense. I want to continue to be an agent.” While he’s embraced electronic publishing, Mint admits he’s still a books-andmortar kind of guy. He has them all over his house — both the ones he reads and the ones he distributes. “The only things I read electronically are manuscripts at night on the iPad before I fall asleep. But boy, the world is changing.”

bergmann duo delights

Ali Colclough Ali had a beautiful soul and a unique spark that touched so many people throughout her life. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces her passing. She passed away on November 15th, 2013, at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, one day away from her 29th birthday. She was born in Grand Forks on November 16th, 1984 to proud parents Don and Sandy Colclough and big sister Erin. As a child, she exuded a busy, happy energy. She had many friends and from very early on it was evident how creative she was. After graduating form Grand Forks Secondary School in 2002, Ali moved to Vancouver to study at SFU. She fell in love with the theatre program there and graduated with a degree in Production Technology. She became involved in many theatre productions and companies in the Lower Mainland, and earned a reputation for being an exceptionally creative, resourceful and hard working member of the production crew. After a few years of working in the Vancouver theatre scene, Ali decided to take a long trip to travel around Australia. She "fell in love with the continent", and ended up staying there for a year and a half. She made friends everywhere she went, and was always up for an adventure. Upon returning from her trip to Australia, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Throughout her treatment, she was exceptionally brave and continued to live life to the fullest. She continued to travel (Mexico, Australia, India) and sought the joy of new experiences wherever she went. She believed strongly in natural medicine, and had begun going to school to become a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and acupuncturist. A born healer, Ali hoped to heal others using a natural and gentle approach. Ali's love for adventure was such a joy and inspiration to her family and friends. She had a wonderful sense of humour that connected her with others instantly. Her laugh was infectious, and she was always encouraging others to 'lighten up', and enjoy each day as it came. She valued her friendships and family beyond measure, and was so easy to love. A Celebration of Life will be held for all who knew and loved Ali on Saturday November 23rd at one o'clock at the Gospel Chapel in Grand Forks. Donations can be made to Inspire Health or Pines Bible Camp in her honour. "Yet, even with serious illness, there may yet be golden days you will never forget." -Earl A. Grollman

Dorothy Eldean Williams Dorothy (Dot) Eldean Williams passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 16, 2013 after a lengthy illness at the Hardyview Manor, Grand Forks, B.C. Dot was born November 2, 1928 in Westerose, Alberta to Carl and Ebba Hagen. Dot met her husband Bob (Robert) Williams in Calgary and they married on February 15, 1952. They were able to celebrate their 61st anniversary together. Shortly after they married, the two of them moved to Fon du Lac, Saskatchewan where she was blessed with two children – Laurie and Carl. In 1958, they moved to Dawson City, Yukon where Jacqui was born. The Yukon was their home until 1971 when another opportunity presented itself in Yellowknife. They retired to Christina Lake, B.C. in 1983 and lived in their dream home with further moves to Winfield, B.C., Grande Prairie, A.B., Salmon Arm, B.C. and finally to Red Deer where they made their permanent home. Dot was a socialite in her time and enjoyed nothing more than a good game of bridge. With her competitive edge she excelled at curling, enjoyed square dancing and was up for any challenge presented to her. Her early days were isolating but again, she rose to the occasion. When freeze-up came, they were without mail for 3 months, receiving 9 bags of mail on December 23. There were letters, Christmas cards, parcels and newspapers. Her last contact with anyone from the south was the supply boat in the fall. Eggs and oranges were a real treat. She said she baked the best bread out of a wood cook stove. Each spring, the health nurse would arrive and Dot would heat water for her while she washed the heads of the local natives on their veranda. She was a pioneer for women headed north and paved the way for others. With her humble farm beginnings she learned how to raise a fabulous garden and grow flowers where none had grown before. The pantry was always stocked with home canning. Her and her children’s wardrobe boasted of home sewn clothing which she updated as the seasons changed. Her invitations for coffee always included home-baked cookies or cakes. She made time for people in her life and afforded each and everyone she touched a lending ear, advice if it was called for or just a laugh or two. Mom, you will be missed. She was predeceased by her parents, Carl and Ebba Hagen, and husband Bob. She is survived by her sisters – twin sister Doris (Ted Knowles), Bernice (Norm Lund), Marion Dietrich, Joyce (Al Carder), Darlene (Leo Fontaine), brothers Charlie – “Chubby” Hagen (Sylvia) and Kels Hagen (Gertie). Her children – Laurie (Russ Esson), Carl Williams (Mary Ann) and Jacqui (Darby Reber) as well as grandchildren Dayna, Brad, Blair, Cheryl, Joe, Cole, Garret and Drew and one great-granddaughter, Abby. A celebration of life with be held in the near future at Christina Lake, B.C. Donations in Dorothy’s name are gladly accepted to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada: Alzheimer Society of Canada, 20 Eglinton Avenue West, 16th Floor, Toronto, ON, M4R 1K8 The family would like to thank the nurses and those that tended to mom’s needs and for the care and support they offered to her and us.

Holiday

big success

The annual Christmas tea, bake sale and silent auction was a big success in Christina Lake as the Health-Care Auxiliary worked to buy another heart monitor for Boundary Hospital in Grand Forks. With a record attendance, a fabulous bake sale and super silent auction, their goals were met. The auxiliary expresses its appreciation to all businesses and individuals who contributed to its success. The auxiliary strives to support the local hospital and Hardy View Lodge with equipment and care and comfort items to help make up for some of the shortfalls in the system. They take no administration fees. You can see where the charity money goes: right here in the community. If you want to help the auxiliary call Tanis Stephenson at the Lake or Carol Richmond in Grand Forks.
