BRE survey: Business growing and expanding Resident recalls his school burning down ..................................16

Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net The Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute was in Golden last Thursday to present Golden Area Initiatives’ findings from a Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) survey that was administered to 114 businesses in town. Among the businesses that agreed to participate, the largest percentage was in the retail and wholesale industry, with 26 per cent,

while 21 per cent were in the accommodation and food services industry. Interestingly, only five per cent of the businesses reported that their business was declining, while 11 per cent believed their business was emerging and 53 per cent said that their business was growing. These numbers represent a very positive sign of growth for business in Golden. Somewhat unique to this area, 47 per cent of the businesses that were surveyed have been in business for 10 years or less,

which is evidence that there are plenty of new businesses opening up around town. Additionally, 52 per cent of businesses reported that they had plans for expansion within the next three years and among the businesses that were set to expand, $413 million would be spent on those plans, although the vast majority of that money would be sent by just a few businesses.

The shelter has plans to expand this winter in an effort to increase the space available to them at their current facility. Part of the new space would be used to quarantine cats who are new to the shelter or are sick, which Wilson said will have enormous benefits for Little Mittens. “We’re really working on getting proper enclosures and getting a health and safety and infection control program going so we can do an even better job of keeping the cats healthy, and that way we can adopt them out quicker,” Wilson said. “We just don’t have the space right now to quarantine the cats, so you end up with a whole bunch of cats getting sick and no adoptions happening.” Because of the cats’ illnesses from the past summer, Little Mittens had to stop adopting out cats for a considerable amount of time, which recreated a logjam and caused the existing shelter to be quite crowded. A place to quarantine cats would help Little Mittens avoid this problem in the future.

“We just don’t have the space right now to quarantine the cats, so you end up with a whole bunch of cats getting sick...” — Karen Wilson —

Town offering free AED unit training Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net In partnership with the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Town of Golden has received three automated external defibrillator (AED) units for use in its recreation facilities. A unit will be placed at each of the pool, the Mount 7 Rec Plex and the Golden and District Arena, with plans to get a fourth unit for the Civic Centre in the near future. The donation of the units is part of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s public access to defibrillator program. With the acquisition of the new units comes a need to educate the public on how to use the defibrillators in case of an emergency. Because of this need, the Town is holding a training session in partnership with B.C. Ambulance services. Carmen Oszust will lead the session, which will take place on Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. in the arena lounge. “We’re very grateful to have these donations and to be able

Vaccination regulations take effect soon Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net The provincial government and Interior Health are reminding members of the public that beginning Dec. 2, 2013, if they are visiting someone in a health-care facility, they will be expected to have been vaccinated or wear a mask to help protect those most vulnerable this influenza season. The controversial decision was upheld earlier in the fall, and comes into effect for the first time this winter. Anyone who enters a hospital, long-term care facility or any other health-care facility will be expected to wear a mask if they have not been vaccinated against influenza. Masks will be available, free of charge, for those who have not been vaccinated. Visitors join health-care workers, volunteers

and contractors to support a comprehensive influenza prevention strategy to protect patient safety. The best way for visitors to help protect their loved ones in hospitals, long-term care facilities and other health-care facilities is to get vaccinated. All health authorities will rely on the honour system to monitor visitor compliance with this policy. Anyone planning to visit patients in a healthcare facility, or those who take family members to outpatient appointments, will be eligible for a free influenza shot from a pharmacist, doctor, nurse or any licensed practitioner. Flu shots also are offered for free in B.C. to a number of individuals, including children, seniors, pregnant women, Aboriginal people, individuals with chronic health conditions, and those who work or come in close contact with higherrisk groups.

Obscenities on Vehicles

510B - 9th Avenue N., Golden, B.C. (250) 344-5201

Every so often I get asked to write about something that makes me pause and think for a moment. This article is one of those as the reader asked “Could you clarify what the law is in BC regarding offensive words, statements, illustrations etc. on vehicles in use on public roads? For example, I recently saw a truck advising anyone interested that the driver masturbates. Maybe there are no limits these days?” I suppose that the most important point to examine is how do we determine what is obscene? The Supreme Court of Canada has said that indecent criminal conduct [or obscenity] will be established where the Crown proves beyond a reasonable doubt the following two requirements: That, by its nature, the conduct at issue causes harm or presents a significant risk of harm to individuals or society in a way that undermines or threatens to undermine a value reflected in and thus formally endorsed through the Constitution or similar fundamental laws That the harm or risk of harm is of a degree that is incompatible with the proper functioning of society. While we both may justifiably think that what you observed is in poor taste and the vehicle owner should not be able to do this sort of thing, it would never meet the criminal definition of obscene. There are no motor vehicle laws or bylaws that could be used in place of a criminal charge either. Since it is not far off of some prime time television content, we will just have to choose to ignore it. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for Golden shoppers Jessica Schwitek editor@thegoldenstar.net Golden's Christmas season will officially be kicked off on Saturday Nov. 30 with the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce's Shopping Extravaganza and Santa Claus Parade. "Throughout the Town of Golden the merchants and restaurants will be offering great savings to those who stop in," said Ruth Hamilton, manager of the Chamber office. "So mark your calendars for the Annual Santa Claus Parade and Keeping' it Local Shopping Extravaganza.” Aside from the great shopping deals, there will firepit warming centres scattered throughout the community, a fundraising barbecue, and the lighting of the 30-foot Christmas tree in the downtown square, which will be surrounded by carollers from Golden Secondary School. "New this year we will also be hosting a window decorating contest," said Hamilton. The winner will be decided by people's choice voting. So watch for the signs in the windows of participating businesses and go inside to vote for your favourite decorated window. Then the day will be capped off with the annual parade, which will be announced over the speaker system by Mike Pecora, and EZ Rock's Stephen Keppler.

Emergency services It’s amazing how easy it is to forget how vital emergency services are, as most of us very rarely use them. But when you are hanging up side down in your vehicle after it rolls on the highway, or watching the flames get higher and higher when your house is on fire, nothing in - I SURMISE the world seems more By Jessica Schwitek important. Two weeks ago, sitting at my desk doing my regular tasks for the day, I heard a voice on the scanner calling for the Golden Fire Department because there was a structure fire in town—a fairly rare occurrence in this community. I turned up the volume, waiting to hear more on this unfolding story, and got my camera ready to rush out and get a picture. I had to listen to the address twice before the information clicked in my head. Then I had to ask my coworker what she heard, because I must have been hearing it wrong. I heard right. It was my address. I arrived on scene shortly after the fire department. They were backing the truck up to hook up to a fire hydrant. It was not a false alarm, there was a real fire to put out, and it was in my building. The fire, which was thankfully not in my own apartment, was put out very quickly. No one was seriously hurt, and even the cat (who had a pretty close call) was given oxygen at the scene, and made a full recovery at the vet. All in all it was a very fortunate outcome. But there are many people who are not so lucky. In the police report this week (page 5) there was another fortunate tale of a house fire that could have gotten out of control. It was out in the Blaeberry, and luckily the house cleaner was able to put out the blaze. Had the cleaner not been there, it would have been a very different story. As many of you know, the Blaeberry does not have a fire service. And had the fire grown out of control, no help would have come—an unfortunate reality of living in these beautiful rural areas. There have been two homes in that area that have burned down this past year. The community support for these families was inspiring, but I was counting my lucky stars not to be going through a similar tragedy. So thank you to the Golden Fire Department, the RCMP for being there two weeks ago, as well as BC Ambulance, and the Golden and District Search and Rescue for always showing up when people need you the most.

Kicking Horse Culture Golden Star editor, As all who attend our events know, KHC never misses the opportunity to thank both our local governments for their crucial operational support. Since 2006, both the Town and CSRD have contracted with KHC via Golden Area Initiatives to deliver year round arts and cultural activity that helps make Golden a great place to live and visit. In 2014, KHC will be in the last year of our current threeyear agreement. With the changes at GAI, both the Town and CSRD have confirmed the agreement and funds will continue through 2014. Both local governments recently requested KHC submit a proposal to renew the agreement for another three-year term beginning January 2015 - which we have done. We have asked that discussions take place in the first few months of 2014 so we can plan and budget before KHC starts our new fiscal year in June 2014.

Shared funding Dear editor, I wanted to call attention to both the coverage and conversation that has transpired in relation to last week’s edition. The push and pull of level of service provision and the costs associated are at the heart of most, if not all, municipal political decision making conversations. Be it recreational services (such as the pool or arena), waste removal and recycling, arts and culture, or economic development, the choices of how much to spend and to what level is and always should be debatable. I try to weigh my own system of values with that of our com-

It’s important to note that the Town of Golden has mutually beneficial agreements with KHC on a variety of initiatives including Summer Kicks and the operations of the Civic Centre. Our relationship with Town Council and staff just couldn’t be any better. Since 2004, local government has supported the operations of KHC with $600,000 and that investment has helped create revenues totaling $3,700,000. We’ve created full-time jobs and supported part-time work efforts for dozens, if not hundreds of local people and suppliers. In September, our executive director presented these facts during a keynote presentation at the Union of BC Municipalities conference earning warm applause and envy from communities around the province. I recommend you go to our website at kickinghorseculture.ca and read my blog post for more detailed information and see why KHC has been ranked by the BC Arts Council in the top handful of 75 B.C. communities for the last five years running. Monica Parkinson, Board Chair, Kicking Horse Culture

munity and come to decisions that are in the interest of greater community good. I do not for a second believe that this is ever black and white and I try to remain open to the valid opinions that lay on each side of choice points. For me, these decisions are further shaped by my conviction that the Town of Golden does not exist mutually exclusive from Area A and our rural areas. Though the tax boundaries are obviously defined as such, the provision of greater community services and provision of amenities includes the greater population. It seems pretty clear to me that our community, although divided in terms of governing structure, really is both. With this in mind, I advocate for and have my decisions shaped, by

the belief that joint service provision and its subsequent shared funding model should be implemented whenever the impact is regional. This should hold true if the either the Town of Golden or the CSRD provides the service. Our population base is not large enough for either government to provide sustainable meaningful long term cost effective service provision independently. Economic Development Services are a perfect example. Best practices, research and regional examination should lead one to conclude that some level of focused economic development provision is in the best interest of the greater community.

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: How cold does Golden get in the winters, and how much snow does it receive? (Signed a curious new resident) Answer: Golden’s climate is on the top list of why people live in Golden, says Tourism Golden, from the warm sunny days of spring giving birth to new life, to the bright colours of fall, the powder days of winter and the long hot days of summer. The average winter temperatures measure between a high of -6.0°C/21.2°F and a low of -14.4°C/6.1°F. The Town of Golden’s average annual snowfall is 184cm or 72.4 inches. Average annual snowfall at the alpine snow stations of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is 650cm or 256 inches.

Dear editor, My heart was broken at the news of the impending loss of our community economic development organisation (GAI). The loss of formal community economic development (CED) is a 10 year, or more back slide for our municipality and area. There have been years of efforts from organizations like Golden Community Resource Society, Tourism Golden, Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce, GAI, the College of the Rockies, the Town of Golden....... The list goes on and on, to eliminate the solo approach to operating,

This provision crosses the artificial boundaries and is an area that has been a shared service for ten plus years. It is one of those areas that the Town of Golden tax base alone would have difficulty sustaining. I can advocate for the necessity of providing this service and for a fair and functional funding model but I cannot support municipal tax dollars and municipal staff carrying the full burden. This leads me into the question posed in last weeks paper in regards to cultural services. The question asked, I believe, is significant in that it only references the Town of Golden. The more meaningful question, as I see it, need include the CSRD. Cultural services contracting and the core operational funding provided to Kicking Horse Culture by local government for the delivery of this service is another living example of

and embracing a culture of collaboration, partnership and cooperation to ensure the very best for our community. This coming together is the very basis of CED. The loss of GAI, is the loss of the tie that binds, the loss of (in principle) the direction setter, the researcher, the data collector, the analyser, the keeper of the vision, the over arching umbrella that keeps us all focused and moving in a proactive direction. There may have been flaws in the system, and the three members of the tripartied agreement, the Town of Golden, Rural Area A and the CSRD, may have been unsatisfied with their agreement, but what we have now is the baby being thrown out with the bath water, the loss of our ability to be proactive to the needs and wants of our resi-

shared services. The support for, engagement in, procurement of, and benefits gained, are greater community in nature. So to is the funding question. I understand and support increasing, decreasing or ceasing service funding when community values shift and change but I cannot pretend that these decisions that impact the greater community should be made in isolation on either side of manufactured government borders. In these instances, decisions made by the Regional Director impact the Town of Golden, and vice versa. They need be considered in tandem. I implore you to keep this in mind when posing community based questions that are not simply limited to region. Caleb Moss, Councillor, Town of Golden

dents, our growth, our future, reverting back to being reactive. The gaping black hole that will be left following December 31st and the end of CED in Golden should be unacceptable to residents. I am asking, urging, no, I am flat out begging, Mayor and Council, the Area A Director and the CSRD to get back to the table. I know from speaking to several of our elected officials that they are sick and heart broken over this outcome as well. So please, please see past the challenges, please start new discussion and solution finding, please do whatever it takes to maintain your investment in our future. Respectfully submitted, Lori Baxendale, community resident.

Nicholson Elementary marks Halloween and Remembrance Day Lois Ehman Nicholson Elementary School Principal

801 9th Avenue, Golden, 250 344-2728 BARRAULTBRANDSOURCE.CA

Nicholson Elementary School has been a very busy place! Halloween week was full of fun activities that started with pumpkin carving. Southside Grocery donated a pumpkin for each child in the school to carve. They were then displayed in front of the store for the week of Halloween. They looked awesome and of course scary!!! A huge thank you to Sandra and Mike Mills for their generosity. Students in kindergarten to grade 3 took part in Halloween Safety presentations to help them prepare for trick or treating. On Halloween the students wore their costumes and took part in a costume parade. At noon the grade 4 – 7 students enjoyed a Halloween dance. The whole school is now enjoying skating once a week at the rink in town. They will go for five consecutive weeks “sharpening their skills” on the ice at the same time as building community with other classes and getting some exercise. On Friday, November 8 we held a Remembrance Day assembly followed by our first community soup lunch day. The service was attended by four members of the Legion as well as cadets. Each class participated in the service by reading, singing or doing art work to decorate the gym. Thank you to everyone who made the service so special. In between all the fun and excitement of extra activities, the students at Nicholson are working hard to become better students and better citizens in order to make the community of Nicholson and Golden better places to live and grow. The staff at Nicholson is very proud of each and every one of them.

Broadway show returns to Civic Centre A Reel Review: We’re the Millers

The Golden Players are going through final rehearsals in advance of their show, scheduled to take place on Nov. 22 at the Civic Centre. The medley of musicals will feature 35 performers Star Photo Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net Broadway’s Back in town again as the Golden Players are set to present their 7th annual show at the Civic Centre on Nov. 22 and 23 at 7:30pm. This year, the show will feature music from musicals such as Westside Story, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Shannon Kelly, now living in Edmonton, is back again to direct the performance that she originally started as part of a project during her time

as a student at the College of the Rockies. When she moved back to Halifax the next year, she was asked to come back and she’s been returning to the area for a couple weeks every year to help put on the show. Kelly sends the music to the musical director, Dana Hudson, in the mail, and she teaches the music for about two months. Lately, the wonders of technology have helped make Kelly’s job a lot easier. “What we did this year, is we used YouTube, and we actually YouTubed the choreog-

raphy to them, so technology helped a lot with that,” she laughed. When Kelly arrives in Golden, the rehearsals are typically all about the choreography and putting the finishing touches on the show prior to the performance dates. This year, 35 local performers will be on stage, with about 10 performers carrying over from last year. Because of the show’s cast being made up of locals, it creates a unique experience for the audience. “[Most performances] in the Civic Centre are all people from outside of the commun-

ity coming in, which is wonderful, but it is cool to actually use the Civic Centre for a community show,” Kelly said. The show is usually a hot ticket in town and typically sells out quickly. Kelly appreciates the support she has received from the community for this event. “Thank you to the community for always supporting it… it’s wonderful to have a good community that supports theatre,” she said. Tickets are available for $20 in advance at Moon River Gift Galley and Bacchus Books and Cafe and $25 at the door.

Willhorse getting ready to tour with Olak

With their plafor Willhorse. Earlier cing in the Peak Perthis month, the local- formance Project, ly formed rock group Willhorse has earned had its song “Stoke It $5,000, which accordUp” played on CBC’s ing to singer and guitarHockey Night in Can- ist Jeremy Borschneck,

will help the band cover a variety of costs and expenses. “We’re going to use the $5,000 for fuel on the tour and to restock all of our merchandise and buy a bunch of CDs,” he said. The tour that Borschneck mentions is the band’s upcoming dates across B.C. and into Alberta, including a stop in Golden on Dec. 14 at The Golden Taps, and is called the Winter Wolfpack Tour. The band will be touring with Rolla Olak, who they were paired up with for a song in the Peak Performance Project. “We started writing a song and then did a little mini tour with him at that point and just became really good buddies with him,” Borschneck said. After the tour wraps up on Dec. 22, Will-

horse won’t have a very long break before they hit the studio in Vancouver in January to begin recording their second album and follow up to their selftitled debut record in 2012. They’ll be recording at Fader Mountain Sound and working with music producers Nygel Asselin and Garth Richardson. Asselin mixed the group’s last record, while Richardson has worked briefly with the band in the past and worked with notable bands such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against the Machine. While some of the band’s songs are written as a collaboration between members, most are written individually and then worked on as a group. Borschneck likes this individualistic writing process because it

gives the band a unique sound across all of its songs. “The songs don’t always sound the same, but in a way they do sound the same because it is us playing together as a whole,” he said. Because their first album was put together from various songs that the bandmates had over the past several years of writing, the band’s next album will have a different feel to it. “We didn’t really write any of those songs as Willhorse,” said Borschneck referring to the new album. “This next record, we’re in our jamspace and writing songs, this will be a true testament of who we actually are as a band.” For more information and a complete listing of tour dates, check out the band’s website at www. willhorse.com.

We’re the Millers is now available at Kicking Horse Movies. New Line Cinema Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net We’re the Millers delivers an RV full of laughs from the first scene through to the end, easily making it one of the year’s best comedies. Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball) directs the script that was penned by the same writers that brought us Wedding Crashers, while well-established comedic actors Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in the main roles as a drug dealer and a stripper.  When David Clark (Sudeikis) has his entire inventory of marijuana stolen, his supplier (Ed Helms) forces him to smuggle a “smidge” of pot in across the Mexican border in an RV to make up for it. In order to better blend in and fool border security, David decides to recruit his neighbours Rose (Aniston) and Kenny (Will Poulter), as well as homeless teen Casey (Emma Roberts) to pose as his family, the Millers. Rose, who is struggling for money, only agrees to join when she decides to quit her job at a strip club after a “minor” policy change that doesn’t need to be detailed in this column.  Naturally, the operation doesn’t go all that smoothly and numerous hilarious situations arise during the Miller’s “family vacation”. As it turns out, they are smuggling a tiny bit more than just a smige. They eventually meet an actual family, the Fitzgerald’s, who have plenty of their own oddities as well.   There’s a really nice mix here of slapstick humour and dry, sarcastic wit, giving We’re the Millers a little bit of everything as far as comedic style goes. While Aniston and Sudeikis are strong, it’s Poulter that steals the show among the main four cast members, playing the role of awkward teenage boy as well as any actor not named Michael Cera.  Amongst the supporting cast, Helms is the perfect arrogant drug kingpin, supplying numerous laugh out loud moments despite limited screen time. Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn also shine as the Fitzgeralds, a quirky couple that quickly becomes an annoyance to the Millers on their journey. I must admit, I wasn’t expecting much with this movie. I’ve enjoyed Sudeikis in previous roles in Horrible Bosses and Hall Pass, as well as his fine work on Saturday Night Live, but I just didn’t know if the plot would work to make this more than just a cookie-cutter gross-out comedy. I was very pleasantly surprised with how well it came together, and the laughs are fairly consistent throughout. This isn’t high brow comedy, to be sure, but it’s a lot of fun and very entertaining. Overall, I’ll give this movie 9 out of 10 dancing hot dogs.

Future of Glacier Park Lodge at Rogers Pass remains up in the air Staff Writer Black Press More than a year after it closed down, the major ski lodge at the heart of the backcountry ski mecca of Rogers Pass remains shuttered. The Glacier Park Lodge enjoys a monopoly at Rogers Pass, with no foreseeable direct competitors due to its prime location in a national park. Despite this formidable natural advantage, the future of the Glacier Park Lodge remains up in the

air, as a complicated legal challenge makes its way through the courts. Glacier Park Lodge has been closed since Sept. 30, 2012, when the owners shut it down and Parks Canada terminated their lease. Parks Canada refused to comment on its future. “The Glacier Park Lodge issue is still before the Supreme Court of British Columbia, and it would be inappropriate for Parks Canada to comment further at this time,” wrote spokes-

person Jacolyn Daniluck in an e-mail. The court case, which was launched in June 2011, prior to the closure, is complex and difficult to understand. It involves a protracted legal battle between Yoho Investments, Abbot Ridge Investments, and a numbered company – together the former owners; Malcolm and Linda Campbell, who owned the hotel when it closed down; Parks Canada and several other named parties. The initial filing claims that the Campbells did make payments on what was owed and the former owners were seeking ownership of the hotel, amongst a number of other claims. Glacier Park Lodge was opened as the Northlander Hotel when the Trans-Canada Highway was opened through Rog-

ers Pass in 1962. In 1968, Parks Canada signed a 42-year lease with the hotel owners. In 2008, the Campbells bought the hotel from the former owners. After the lease expired at the end of 2009, Parks Canada reverted to a monthto-month lease. On Sept. 30, 2012, the owners closed down the hotel and Parks Canada terminated the lease. What appears to have happened since then is the Campbells went bankrupt and a court-appointed receiver representing the former owners was given control of their assets –  including the Glacier Park Lodge and Revelstoke Lodge. In May 2013, a judge ruled the matter could go to trial. Last month, a judge gave the former owners the right

Throughout all this, Parks Canada has contested the validity of the sale to the Campbells, saying it was never approved by the government. The matter remains tied up in the courts,

as does the future of the Glacier Park Lodge. Aaron Fu, the courtappointed receiver for the hotel, said the future depends on Parks Canada. “We’re waiting for their response,” he told the

Times Review. “Without a lease, we cannot open.” The Glacier National Park spokesperson said, “Future plans for the property cannot be considered until the legal process is complete.”

Customers stopping by The Golden Star may have noticed a new face in the office in recent weeks, Adam Zarachowicz, The Star’s new Sales Associate. Zarachowicz moved to Golden in 2010 in order to fullfil his dreams of living in a small community in the mountains. “I spent a lot of my youth travelling and camping through B.C. and I’ve always been attracted to the nature and beauty of it, and just the mountain scenery in general,” he said. When he first moved here, it took him some time to experience the friendliness of the people in town. “When I first moved to town, I had red plates for the first little while and I got a lot of frowns and people were glaring at me when I was driving around town. As soon as I got my plates switched over to B.C. everyone was a lot more friendly,” he

laughed. Zarachowicz moved here with his girlfriend and got his first job in Golden at Columbia Pool and Spa and he spent a lot of his time up working on hot tubs up at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. His first winter was one with heavy amounts of snowfall, which had its pros and cons. “It was nice to have a job and be making some money but every morning I was crying when I had to shovel two feet of snow. It was tough to be working and not playing in the snow.” In his free time, Zarachowicz enjoys snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer, and according to him he spends half his time hurting himself up at Kicking Horse, and spends the other half of his time recovering from injuries. Over the course of his time here, Zarachowicz has grown to love this community and he is thankful for everyone around town for making Golden the place that it is.

Freeski camp for girls coming to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Jessica Schwitek editor@thegoldenstar.net Girls Do Ski is bringing their backcountry expertise to Golden for a special women’s freeski camp. Revelstoke based Girls Do Ski, Canada’s leading freeski camp provider for women, is offering Girls Day Out camps at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, among others. “It’s exciting to be introducing new backcountry camps in addition to our resort camps this year,” says Leah Evans, professional skier and Girls Do Ski founder. “Girls Do Ski is about helping women of all ages grow, learn and develop their skills on the slopes. My goal is that our skiers take the confidence they build at our camps and put it towards personal achievement and empowerment off the snow and into their every day lives.” The camp will include coaching from some of B.C.’s most accomplished professional female skiers, including Evans, Izzy Lynch (who recently filmed with award-winning film makers Sherpas Cinema), Tessa Treadway, Sarah Frood, Jill Young, Leslie Hogg, Megan Sime, Emma Mains, and Marie-

Claud Larivee. Also joining the team is professional ski photographer, Zoya Lynch. Coaching is focused on improving technical skills and pushing personal boundaries in a safe and supportive environment. The camp also provides technical workshops about the ski year, and inspirational talks to encourage participants to explore their dreams and potential, both on and off the slopes. “It is our fifth year in a row hosting one of our Girls Day Out camps at Kicking Horse, we’re stoked to be back,” said Evans. This will be the fifth season the group has travelled to KHMR for camps. The resort’s amenities are unmatchable, from group gatherings at the big mountain centre to the exquisite lunches at the stunning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant. Kicking Horse Moutain Resort’s terrain is a perfect location for learning and enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the rocky, Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges says Evans. The KHMR camp is from Feb. 15-16, 2014. To register, or for more information, go to www. girlsdoski.com.

Frustration starting to show for a struggling Golden Rockets team Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net The struggles continued for the Golden Rockets last weekend, losing back to back home games to put their losing streak at seven, and further distancing themselves from the rest of the pack in the Eddie Mountain Division. The weekend got off to a dismal start on Friday night, as the Fernie Ghostriders stormed out to a 3-0 lead by the time the game was half over. Frustration began to boil over for the Rockets and a few players showed that through their actions and body language. Having their backs against the wall seemed to provide a spark for Ty Davidson’s team, as Cole Mckechney took advantage of a four minute power play with his eighth goal of the season. Tanner Watt narrowed the gap to 3-2 with just 45 seconds left in the second

and the Rockets were back in it. Joel Burgess put a brief damper on the Rockets’ aspirations of a comeback with a shorthanded marker that could have easily been the straw that broke the camel’s back. It wasn’t however, and Braeden Allkins responded for the Rockets on that very same power play. It was smiles all around for the home team when Nick Hoobanoff scored with 6:35 left in the third to tie the game 4-4. The elation was short lived, however, as Ben Primeau beat Rockets’ netminder Adam Johnson for his second goal of the game for Fernie, giving the Ghostriders a lead they wouldn’t relinquish, taking the game by a 5-4 score. The Rockets got off to a sluggish start again on Saturday night as the league’s only American franchise, the Spokane Braves, drew first blood. Connor Beauchemin tied the game up late in the

first on the power play, but Levi Waterman and Sean Collins scored second and third period goals to give the Braves a two goal cushion. Allkins scored his second goal in as many games in the final minute, but it was too little to late for Golden, who fell to 6-15-0-2 with the 3-2 defeat. “The effort is there but we find new and exciting ways to blow games,” said a frustrated Ty Davidson following the loss on Friday night. “They gave us every opportunity to win that game with penalties they took and opportunities they gave us, and we [didn’t] take advantage.” Golden’s next game will be on Thursday night at home against the Creston Valley Thunder Cats. They’ll spend the weekend on the road, starting on Friday night with a game against the Grand Forks Border Bruins, before travelling to Castlegar for a game Saturday night again the Rebels.

Rockets Profile: Defenceman Dustin Watt Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net

“Players are a lot stronger and a lot smarter, but as far as pace goes it seems about the same,” he said. Watt, who has no relation to Rockets’ centre Tanner Watt, said that he prefers to play a simple, yet effective brand of hockey from the back end. “[My game] is pretty defensive, not too much offence in my game. I just try and do the simple plays and stuff,” he said. The Kamloops native doesn’t have any specific areas of his game that he’d like to improve, he just wants to become a better overall hockey player and help the team out as much as he can. He said it helps him out having veteran defencemen like Brett DeFrias and Michael Anderson to look up to and guide him along. There’s one other goal that Watt would certainly like to accomplish. “I’d like to score a goal,” he said, smiling. “A real goal.”

Rockets’ defenceman Dustin Watt was credited with a goal in the team’s 3-2 loss against the Sicamous Eagles on Nov. 9. It officially went down as his first career KIJHL goal, but as it turns out, it wasn’t quite how it seemed. “Actually it wasn’t even me that scored. I wasn’t even on the ice,” he laughed. Despite not scoring a legitimate goal, Watt is settling into the league nicely, but still has some areas to improve on as well. “I think I’m doing alight,” he said. “Still got some things to improve on but I’m coming along day by day,” Despite the smooth transition to Junior B hockey, the step up to the KIJHL hasn’t come without its set of challenges.

Rockets’ defenceman Dustin Watt is adjusting well to the KIJHL. Joel Tansey/Star Photo

Wildsight effort gets boost with cheque from MEC Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar.net An environmental group’s campaign to keep Jumbo wild has received some extra financial support. Wildsight’s Jumbo Wild campaign received another boost this week, in the form of a $5,000 award for first place in the fourth-annual Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) Wild Bucks competition. The resort at Jumbo, which has been controversial since it was first proposed in 1991, has received strong regional opposition amongst environmental groups, especially Wildsight. Wildsight’s Jumbo Wild project beat out such high-profile competition as Ontario Nature, Clean Nova Scotia, and Alberta’s Castle-Crown Wilderness Coalition, taking 40 per cent of the overall votes in this national online voting competition. “At MEC, we’re inspired by wild places – places like the upper Jumbo Valley,” said MEC’s Community Program Manager, Andrew Stegemann. “MEC Wild Bucks support our commitment to conserve ecologically and recreationally important places by giving our members the means to register their support for groups like Wildsight that are working to raise awareness of what’s at stake in Jumbo and other threatened places.” “We are really pleased to accept this award, and very pleased to have received more votes than some really high profile, and important campaigns,” says Robyn Duncan, Wildsight’s Purcells Program Manager. “This really shows how important the Purcell Mountains, and the Jumbo Valley in particular, are to people across the country. People really get it: now more than ever Canadians want to protect the wilderness we have, rather than developing remote valleys like Jumbo for more real estate profits, and trying to mitigate the impacts after the fact.” Funding will go towards continuing the twodecade-long effort to protect critical cultural, recreational, and wildlife values in the Central Purcells from permanent real estate development. MEC Wild Bucks was first inspired four years ago by a partnership between MEC and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. To date, the project has awarded $30,000 in bonus funding to MEC grant recipients.

Golden Moments: David Morris and a life spent in Golden Joel Tansey reporter@thegoldenstar.net It’s fair to say that it is every kid’s dream to have their school burn down. For David “Scotty” Morris, that dream became a reality. While waiting for the bus one morning, one of his friend’s parents called out to them from their balcony to let them know of the news. Despite the fact that she was calling out from a home in the Swiss Village and Morris and his friends were waiting for the bus where Cats to Cattle is now, the kids had no trouble hearing her. “We could hear her tell us that the school had burned down and that we should come home. That’s how quiet it used to be here, there was no industry, just some small mills,” he said. Morris’ vacation from school didn’t last forever, of course, and the students took over the Civic Centre while repairs were made at Lady Grey. Morris was born and raised in Golden on property at the end of Ottoson. It was a quiet childhood with most of his time spent playing with the few kids in the neighbourhood. Summers were spent hiking and exploring the surrounding countryside and the winters were spent on the small ski hill near his home. “When I was a kid we had the local ski club. There would be an old car there and a rope tow. The department of highways would clean off half the field for a parking lot. We’d have 150-200 people

up there on weekends to ski,” he said. “You’d pay 50 cents, enough to pay for the gas and turn the car on and away you went. We even had a string of lights up the hill so we could ski nights.” In the summer he’d swim at a marsh in Moberley with his friends. “You’d just have to pull the leaches off yourself afterwards,” he said, smiling at the memory. As for his nickname, Morris earned it when he went on a three month trip to Scotland in his youth in order to attend his grandfather’s funeral and visit family. When he got back, his classmates began calling him Scotty and the nickname stuck. Morris met his wife, Maxine, when she started working alongside his sister as a chambermaid at the Ponderosa Inn. Maxine was supposed to be here for just the summer but ended up moving here permanently from Edmonton. The couple has two children, four grandchildren and one great grandson. Over the years, Morris has worked in the logging industry and as a delivery driver around town for Old Ham transport (later Byers Transport). He enjoyed the latter job throughly. “It was great, you got to talk to different crews and different people every day. You went to all the stores. In those days we delivered beer, we delivered groceries, we delivered everything,” he said. Today, Morris lives in a house right next to his childhood home, which is

StarCROSSWORD

David “Scotty” Morris has lived on his property at the end of Ottoson his entire life.  Joel Tansey/Star Photo where his son lives with his wife and two kids. He has no desire to move on and live somewhere else, although he did enjoy travelling to Carcross in the Yukon on a few occasions to visit a high school friend. He works four days on and four days off for Trimac, which supplies fuel for trains at the CPR yard. He plans to retire within a few months, which will give him more time to ski and work in his garden.

While it would be easy for him to lament the ways in which the town has grown and changed, Morris prefers to embrace what tourism has brought to the town. “It’s grown slow enough that you have to really stop and think about what used to there and nothing is really negative,” he said. “It brings a few more stores in and a few more things here that you don’t have to travel for.”

DREAMING OF A New Career?

Early Swiss guide gave up promising career to come to Canada

- Turning Back the Pages By Colleen Palumbo

I have had many opportunities recently to be reminded of the contribution that the Swiss guides and their families have made to our unique mountain culture. Here is a bit about one such guide, Christian Haesler. Born in Switzerland in 1889, Christian Haesler, Jr., gave up a promising career in the Swiss Mountain Artillery to follow in his father’s footsteps. The senior Haesler and Edward Feuz, Sr., were the first Swiss guides to come to this area together with interpreter, Charles Clark, in 1898. For 12 years, Christian, Jr., watched his father leave for his yearly six months stay in Canada. In 1911, Christian, Jr., received his guiding license in Meiringen. The Swiss families were finding the long separations from their families very difficult, and in a bid to keep the guides, the CPR built homes for them in Golden. So for the first time, the families were also able to come. When they arrived in Golden, the party included Christian Haesler, Jr. and Miss Rosa Margarita Feuz. The day following their arrival, Christian and Rosa were married by the pastor of the Methodist Church and took up residence in “Edelweiss Village.” Two children were born to them. Their names were Walter and William. Christian, Jr. went to work in Field as guide and caretaker

for a year and then moved to Glacier where he worked in the same capacity until its closure in 1926. In November of 1937, tragedy struck the family when 16 year old William, while doing experiments in the basement of the family home with chum, Freddie Feuz, was killed in an explosion. Among the first ascents credited to him were Iconoclast Peak in 1924, Bush Peak, Trident as well as several others. In the fall of 1939, Chris and CPR photographer, Nick Moran, while walking to Sherbrooke Lake to take publicity pictures of the new camp and trail, were attacked by a grizzly bear. The two men attempted to climb trees but Christian did not get out of reach before the bear grabbed him and clawed him badly on both legs and his left arm. Mr. Moran, coming down from his tree to give assistance, took a club to the grizzly bear, which then turned on him, badly chewing and biting him about the head, legs and arms. Christian, though badly hurt, started down the five mile trail for help. Chief R. Langford, Warden Hoover and Warden Burgitt quickly got men together and went in and found Moran. Dr. Atkins of Banff was at the road to meet the men and both men were taken to hospital in Banff. Christian spent the next eight months in hospital recovering from the grizzly bear attack. While her husband was guiding, Rose took a very active interest in the town and was a member of the Golden Yoho Rebekah Lodge No. 51, the Golden Women’s

Institute and in the United Church activities. On March 19, 1940, while on a visit to Vancouver, British Columbia, Rose Haesler passed away at the age of 50. From 1932 until 1940, Lillian Gest accompanied Christian on climbs each season. She was with him on his last ascent in the summer of 1940 when they completed the climb of an 18, 283 foot unnamed peak above Panther Falls, between Nigel Peak and Mt. Cirrus near Lake Louise. Another notable climb made by Christian was with Miss Gest, Miss Gardiner and Edward Feuz when they climbed Mt. Robson. While working on his chimney in early November, 1940, Christian had a heart attack. He was lowered to the ground and taken to hospital but was pronounced dead at the age of 51.
