On Nov. 25, Grand Forks city council received as information an updated report from Wayne Kopan, manager of building inspection and bylaw services, regarding the cleanup of the property on Highway 3 near Jolly Jacks. Kopan told council in his report that he had granted the property owner and his tenant additional time to complete the work due to progress being made. “We are working toward a solution,” said Doug Allin, city administrative officer. “This is part of council working with the community when there is a bit of challenge.”

Water meters turn on the tap of questions

Cresting provincial wave of acceptance

Water meters have been recommended as a water-saving measure in several community plans that were developed through public consultation, including the recent Kettle River Watershed Study, the Asset Management Plan and the Sustainable Community Plan. The city has installed water meters over the past decade in all industrial, commercial, institutional and multi-family properties in Grand Forks.

Water meters will save the city a considerable amount of money, but not so much for its citizens, according the latest insight on the looming water meter installation program. During city council question period on Nov. 25 before its regular meeting, Grand Forks resident Bob Smith asked council about the upcoming water meter program. “I’ve talked to a lot of people in town and they’re very upset about water meters coming in,” he told council. “Have you verified this as pos-

itive or negative, so far?” Mayor Brian Taylor said the feedback council has received on the upcoming program has been mostly positive, but there were some misconceptions of what the program would cost taxpayers. “In fact, the cost to the individual taxpayer, if you’re not watering a lot outside ... we don’t expect your rates would go up,” he said. “But it would save the city a massive amount of money in the long run and potentially allow us to reduce some of our infrastructure costs. It really has been very positive.” The estimated cost of the universal water meter project in

Grand Forks is $1.3 million, and will be financed through gas tax funding, which means there will be no impact to taxation. The project will occur in three phases starting in Spring 2014 and is scheduled for completion in Fall 2015. Taylor also said that the provincial government would not give the city any infrastructure grant money without water metering in place. City chief administrative officer Doug Allin proceeded to speak about the water meter program and the preparation that the city has already undertaken.

Several inches of snow put winter sports enthusiasts in the mood to hit the Grand Forks Secondary School Annual Ski and Sport Swap on Saturday. Although baby Sophie was too young to appreciate the deals on skates, skis, helmets and the like, mom Amy Perry and son Noah had a great time looking through the equipment displayed throughout the high school gym.

POLICE BRIEFS Impaired driver pulled over On Friday, Nov. 22 at 10:30 p.m., RCMP pulled over a suspected impaired driver on Donaldson Drive. “A 27-year-old female driver from Grand Forks received a 90-day roadside driving prohibition and had her vehicle impounded for 30 days,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “In this case, she blew twice and failed on both cases resulting in the immediate roadside prohibition.” Theft of welder A report of theft under $500 was received by Grand Forks RCMP on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 12:15 p.m. The theft was from the backyard of a property on Kettle River Drive and consisted of a gray 225-amp electric welder taken off by a threewheeled trolley. “(The owner) noted three small tire tracks going up his driveway,” said Harrison. “It was suspected that the welder was then loaded into a vehicle. There was no other evidence at the scene.” There are currently no suspects and no witnesses. Holiday road checks are in effect RCMP throughout the province are now conducting holiday road checks looking for impaired drivers. “Over the last week we’ve had three check stop programs in town,” said Harrison. RCMP are strongly encouraging people that before you go to the party you make plans for getting home. “So you don’t put yourself in a situation where you’re not sure if you’ve drank too much find yourself on the receiving end of a roadside suspension.”

News tips

Facilities report points to aging hospital TIMOTHY SCHAFER Grand Forks Gazette

The cost to replace or upgrade the aging 50-year-old Boundary Hospital to industry standard won’t be cheap, according to an Interior Health Authority report. The city’s hospital could be replaced for around $36 million, and nearly that again to repair and upgrade the facility to bring it up to industry standard, The Interior Health Capital Strategy and Facility Assessment revealed. The number itself does not indicate that the hospital is falling apart, is unsafe or is not providing good care, said Ingrid Hampf, Interior Health acute care area health services administrator for Kootenay Boundary, instead it is a bricks-and-mortar replacement figure to replace exactly the same facility. “The building doesn’t dictate as to whether we are providing good care or not,” she said. “We have great staff in all locations … and we can’t lose sight of that based on a number in a spreadsheet,” she said. Although there are no plans to replace or upgrade the facility, the report will be one more piece of information to guide the region forward in planning. She said the assessment helps IHA look at health care needs and see how the building—as well as the facilities in Trail, Nelson and Nakusp—fits to deliver health care to 80,000 people in the Kootenay-Boundary. “The real driver for the discussion

is not the number on the report, it is really around services and what kind of health care should we be providing, and are there changes to services that we can see coming due to new technology,” she said. Hampf said the assessment is one of 11 pieces of information IHA and the province use in planning, relying on projected demand for the services the facility offers in the future and needed programs. The report was given to the West Kootenay-Boundary Regional Hospital District (WKBRHD) board Nov. 27 and will be used in planning to determine future capital projects. The assessment took into account the physical condition of the facility, as well as the condition and age of its mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The last assessment took place in 2003. Since then approximately $10.5 million was spent on capital projects and $19.4 million on capital equipment at KBRH. Advancing capital projects is a joint venture between IHA and the WKBRHD, the hospital district paying for 40 per cent of the projects and the provincial government and hospital foundations covering 60 per cent. Of all of the major health care facilities in the West Kootenay-Boundary, only the Arrow Lakes Hospital in Nakusp is less than 50 years old. The hospitals in Trail and Nelson, as well as the Castlegar and District Community Health Centre, are between 50 and 60 years old. — with files from Trail Times

It’s official; the new name of the city’s arena is the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena. At the regular Grand Forks city council on Nov. 25, council voted unanimously to endorse the renaming of the Grand Forks Arena to honour one of the city’s major builders who passed away in September. “This is really a chance to recognize someone who has made a major contribution to this community, and in particular, to the arena,” said Mayor Brian Taylor. “This issue came up at the recreation commission table,” said Coun. Michael Wirischagin, who is council’s representative on the Regional District of the Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) recreation commission. The name change was officially approved by the RDKB board of directors at their meeting on Nov. 28 in Grand Forks. The RDKB own and operate the arena but sought the city’s approval out of respect for the contributions Goddard made as mayor and alderman of Grand Forks, said John Mackey, RDKB director of recreation and facilities. The unveiling of the new sign will occur on Dec. 19 as part of the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration on Dec. 19 at the arena. “We thought we’d get on it as soon as possible from the rec commission’s point of view,” said Mackey. “At the start of the new year, we’ll be calling it the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena.” Goddard was also instrumental in the relocation of the airport to its present site and the construction of the Boundary Mall. Wirischagin told council that many parks and buildings are named after people who have contributed greatly to the area. Jack Goddard was elected mayor of Grand Forks in 1966 and remained as mayor until 1973. While in office, the construction and completion of the new Grand Forks Arena was one of his proudest moments. Upon his passing on Sept. 12 at the age of 93, Goddard’s son, Jack, had suggested to the RDKB recreation commission that it would be an honour if the arena could be renamed in his father’s memory. The Grand Forks Arena will now be called the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena in honour of former mayor Jack Goddard who passed away in September.

M

ost people would not argue with you if you said, “Everything in the world around us is becoming more regulated.” We live in an increasingly overloaded situation, with rising costs, liability and future considerations at the core, weaving deeper and more intricate levels of red tape and regulation and bylaw in the process. So no one wants another rule instituted, no matter how beneficial it may seem, how altruistic its intent. And, need it or not, water usage is one of those things that will require closer regulation and monitoring as the resource becomes strained and scarce. But it is a good thing. Like broccoli, flossing or driving the speed limit, water meters are set to become a good thing for the city, but we may not like the intrusion. The cost is debatable, but the intent is sound: pay for what you use. Will it encourage conservation of one of the most precious resources to any community? Possibly. But at least the cost to keep the resource in good stead will be covered, thus ensuring consideration of future generations of water users.

Advice for families of the famous second opinion

I

JIM HOlTZ

n October, Forbes magazine released its annual list of the top-earning dead celebrities. Many of the now extinct make more money today than they ever did alive. Heading the list was, naturally, Michael Jackson who raked in a whopping $160 million. Elvis is still up there at a respectable $55 million, and James Dean, who only made three movies and died in 1955, still was able to pull in $5 million in 2012. Unfortunately, the relatives and descendants of the famous dead often get little or none of the windfall profits from the rights to the dead celebrities’ names, images, music, etc. Even if they do, they often fight over the money, competing with lawyers to pick his/

her bones clean. My Austrian relatives are good examples. They fought for years over the rights to Heidi Holtz’s accordion recordings, in particular Mein Glucklich Akkordeon which sold over a million copies in Munich alone. In the end they had to pawn all their lederhosen just to pay off the lawyers. An even sadder tale involves my late Scottish Aunt Maude, a celebrity in the Highlands in the Thirties. At the age of 14, her pigtailed image was featured on a number of oat products produced by the Robertson Oat Company; bags and tins of rolled oats, whole oats, oat meal and oat bran all featured her comely face. When Old Man “Robbie” Robertson discovered that she had a sweet voice as well, she was hired to make radio commercials. Her bestloved jingle was adapted from a Robert Burns poem:

“Scots, wha hae wi’ oats bin blest...” A generation of Scots sang along with her vigourous rendition. Robertson paid Maude six shillings for her image and one shilling for each jingle, a fortune back then. Plus he promised to provide her family with free oats for as long as her image was used. When the Second World War broke out, many Scottish servicemen carried her youthful picture with them into battle as a reminder of hearth and home. Maude even volunteered to visit the troops near the front lines to lift their spirits. Unfortunately, her fame and fortune had enabled her to indulge her sweet tooth. By the time she made it to the battlefield she had put on 30 pounds and looked remarkably like Hermann Goering. A Glaswegian sniper thought so too. Robertson Oat Company paid tribute

to Maude with an elaborate funeral and the release of a compilation of all her famous jingles on a 78 rpm record. Old Man Robertson was said to have bought himself a new Rolls Royce with the profits; the family never saw a dime. Fortunately they all loved porridge and feasted on it daily until 1962 when Seamus Robertson took over the business and replaced Maude’s picture with a kilted image of Robert the Bruce. My cousins complained that the forced change in their diet weakened the entire family and brought on the early death of both Murray Holtz and his younger brother Miles. I hope the Bieber and Gaga families take note and plan accordingly, just in case. No one wants to be left with an empty porridge bowl. Jim Holtz is a Boundarybased writer.

Letters

to the editor

Wreaths not selling out; honouring To the Editor: This is in response to a letter printed in your Nov. 27 edition from Peter Ritchie of Grand Forks entitled, “Apologies due to veterans.” For many years local businesses and individuals have made significant donations to the Royal Canadian Legion Wreath Fund. Money from the wreath fund goes totally towards assisting veterans and their families—none of this money or the money collected from the sale of poppies is used by local branches. Over the years the Legion has called out the names of those who made significant donations towards this fund to come forward and lay a wreath at the cenotaph on Remembrance Day. We found that, while many

were generous enough to make such a donation, they did not actually wish to participate in coming forward to lay a wreath. This caused long delays in the service and we ended up having a Legion branch member lay a wreath on their behalf. About three years ago we started asking those donors if they wanted to take part and, if not, we would lay one wreath, a “community wreath,” and for each donation we would read the name of the individual or business. After this reading we had a Scout/Guide, or this year two members of the air cadets, pin a poppy on that community wreath. This moved the service along much faster and feedback we have received has been very positive. I am very sorry Mr. Ritchie

saw this as turning this sacred service into a commercial occasion, and comments he made suggesting it was like putting a “pizza special” sign on our cenotaph are insulting. In closing perhaps I reinforce that the names of these individuals and businesses are those who made significant donations towards helping the very people Mr. Ritchie feels have been slighted, our veterans. I offer no apology to Mr. Ritchie, but do hope this will allow him to better understand how we acknowledge those who have served and those who are trying to help them and their families after the fact. K. B. Gresley-Jones, vice-president, for Joe Tatangelo, president, Branch 59 Grand Forks Royal Canadian Legion

Reason for fewer deer is simple: access To the Editor: Re: Deer populations and hunting regulations in the Boundary Why are the local deer populations in trouble? Many people believe the main problem is that hunting seasons are too long and far too lenient with wide open seasons on small “mulie” bucks and whitetail does. To a degree this is true. However, there are several other factors contributing to the population declines. Even though the number of hunters is less than half what it was 20 years ago, the overall hunting pressure is greater. How so? In B.C. there are approximately 500,000 kilometres of bush roads with hundreds if not thousands of kilometres more built every year. Thirty years ago the road systems went into the bush and hunters walked from there. Now they go through the bush and the hunters drive everywhere. These roads provide nearly unlimited access to virtually all areas of the province, with the

Boundary area likely having more roads per unit area than most other areas in the province. With such good access the deer no longer have any refuge areas where they are safe and can be at peace; and, even though the particular hunting season (say on mule deer does) may be closed, as the whitetail season is open for much longer, all animals experience increased stress because of the constant traffic through their backyards. Added to this are the ever-present ATVs, the owners of which build trails off the ends of the roads so they can access every nook and cranny of what were once respectfully called the “back woods” areas. All of these ATV riders are well armed. Some carry both rifles and shotguns; many have winches and carry chainsaws in the back so they can, and often do, go anywhere they want. Because of such blatant disrespect for B.C.’s forest and rangelands, there are no more “back woods” areas and, hence, far fewer deer. Fred Marshall, Greenwood

Thumbs Up to visiting grandparents

Thumbs up to children that visit their grandparents. Thumbs down to the 40-year-olds that live like they are retired, while the retired generation keeps the wheels of life turning. Thumbs up to the farmers who raise our food. Thumbs down to the bad drivers in Grand Forks. Common occurrences in town are people rolling through stop signs, speeding down side streets, not stopping for people in crosswalks, cutting corners and driving into the oncoming traffic lane. They also pull U-turns in the middle of main roads and make illegal turns to park. A prime example of this is at the post office. Stop being lazy and oblivious to others on the road and drive safely, please. It could save a life and/ or damage to vehicles. Thumbs down to those who continually bring their “loose-stooled” dogs to town along

public sidewalks. You know who you are. Thumbs up to all those that participated in the planning of Chocolate and Champagne at the Christina Living Arts Centre on Nov. 16. The atmosphere was wonderful, food delicious and tasting all the appies in the competition was so much fun. Hats off to you all. Thumbs down to all those folks who didn’t want to be kind enough to let me do blood work for my sister who has leukemia. You all ganged up on me. Wow. Thumbs up to Betsy who was kind and took me and my bags home after a 17-hour bus ride. Would you like to give a thumb up or a thumb down?

Between November 11 and 22, 195 countries attended the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or the Conference of the Parties (COP) with the intention of reaching an agreement on a framework for dealing with greenhouse gas emissions. COP 19 was the 19th since the first one was held to discuss progress toward implementing measures to deal climate change. Canada signed the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 and withdrew in 2012. Canada’s official representative at COP 19 was Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq. Her attendance on behalf of the Canadian was seen as a token recognition that climate change was an issue for the Canadian government. Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament from Saanich and the Gulf Islands is attending as leader of the Green Party with “observer” status. May said the expectations for the conference were low before she left to attend. On her return she rated it as the “Worst COP ever.” She added, “Only a profound shift globally to make the transition away from fossil fuels a central priority of leaders will ensure our kids have a livable world.” COP 18 was held in Copenhagen and it too was considered a failure because no agreement was reached except that the parties agreed to meet again to continue talking. The governments of industrialized countries around the world are reluctant to reach an agreement that will mean they must slash greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They fear that doing so will affect their financial bottom lines and they make excuses for their lack of involvement. According to May, the reduction of emissions worldwide has stalled and there is no country or group of countries that want to take a leadership role. During COP 19 Germanwatch published the results of a Climate Change Performance Index. Australia and Canada ranked 57th and 58th respectively out of 61 on the index. Iran ranked 59th; Kazakhstan ranked 60th; and Saudi Arabia ranked 61st. Denmark ranked 4th, the United Kingdom was 5th and Portugal was 6th. Canada and Australia are now thought of as rogue countries that have no interest in adopting regulations that will require the reduction of emissions any time soon. There was hope at the conclusion of COP 18 in Copenhagen that Australia and Japan would set an example of what could be done. Both had signed an agreement but both eventually reneged on their commitments. A new government in Australia went rogue and cancelled its carbon tax. Japan withdrew with the excuse that it had to handle the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that occurred in 2011. The fact that the human population has contributed to the change in temperature of the Earth’s biosphere has now been well documented. Heat trapping gases have caused surface temperatures to rise. Climate patterns that were once predictable have become unpredictable. The most recent storm to hit the Philippines-Typhoon Haiyan-left complete destruction in its wake as it moved across the islands. In a recent blog post, Janet Larsen, director of research for Earth Policy Institute in the United States stated, “Haiyan and other recent weather extremes are wake-up calls to the urgency of ending our fossil fuel addiction. If we continue to ignore them, the costs of dealing with climate change will surely extend far off the charts.” Leaders of governments in developed (industrialized) countries appear to be doing nothing to deal with the addiction while leaders of governments in undeveloped countries are dealing with the impact of global warming and changing climatic patterns. Why are they taking such a risk when they know that the end result could be disastrous? Roy Ronaghan is a Christina Lake-based writer.

Letters

www.grandforksgazette.ca A7

to the editor

Warning: satirical content

To the Editor: My apologies to Joan Enquist (Letters to the Editor, Nov. 20) for my satirical column on Rob Ford (Gazette, Nov. 6). One of the common ways to write political satire is to begin by stating a controversial, even inflammatory point of view, e.g. “You have to love Mayor Rob Ford.” Usually, the satirist next writes a series of statements, each more outlandish than the one before, e.g. “But who hasn’t been caught in the embrace of cocaine dealers by some weasely photographer out to persecute us?” followed by “But who hasn’t used Emergency Response to rid ourselves of pesky, predatory paparazzi?” until the reader realizes that the writer is being ironic and actually means the opposite of what is being written. The writer then usually concludes with a statement that is designed to convey the writer’s actual point of view, e.g. “For too long we have been overly concerned with those things that have nothing to do with our tax dollars: morality, honour, respect, legality. “Ford, if he continues to serve and, better yet, is re-elected, will no doubt ensure that those concerns never trouble anyone at City Hall again.” By continuing to use irony in those last two sentences, I evidently led Ms. Enquist to believe that I agreed with Mayor Ford that tax savings were important while morality, honour, respect and legality were not. My apologies; I had hoped to communicate the opposite. In the future I will not attempt to write satirical columns, or if I do, I will include at the end a kind of warning, similar to that found on cigarettes: “The preceding commentary is satirical and contains irony. In places, the writer may mean the opposite of that which is stated.” Jim Holtz, Grand Forks

An open letter to Premier Christy Clark To the Editor: An open letter to Premier Christy Clark from a British Columbian without a voice. Dear Premier Clark: Your approach to governing the province is troubling from the point of view of citizens who have a concern about the kind of environment their children and grandchildren will inherit, given your desire to sell mine and sell natural resources as quickly as you can. It is time then that you answered some questions that are on the minds of those who did not vote Liberal on May 14, 2013. Your jobs and families strategy for the province is concentrated on jobs in the resource extraction industries: coal mining, open pit mining for copper and gold, oil and gas extraction and the removal of our remaining forests. The thought that you and your government support the extraction of resources in B.C. to supply greedy people in Japan, China, Korea and possibly Vietnam is troublesome. You would like us to believe that B.C. can provide them with a product they need, but those of us who have been denied a voice believe that it is more about the money that will flow into the provincial treasury, money that you say is desperately needed to pay the province’s debt. Do you ever pause to think of

the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that will be created from the combustion of the liquefied natural gas, oil and coal that will be shipped overseas? Do you have a clear conscience when you meet with premier Alison Redford of Alberta to talk about the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline? Do you and premier Redford ever talk about climate change and what scientists around the world are currently saying and advocating? You talk about the money that British Columbia will receive from the sale of its resources and the jobs that will be created in the process. However, you avoid talking about the kinds of jobs and their duration and the fact that the market for liquefied natural gas is not a stable one. Most recently they reported that to keep Earth’s temperature below two degrees Celsius all western economies and governments would have to make revolutionary changes in their approach to resource development. You avoid talking about the negative aspects of the removal of natural resources. Coal mining means the removal of mountaintops. Natural gas and oil production means the use of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and the chemicals injected into the earth that eventually reappear in ground water supplies. Why aren’t you showing leadership by placing severe restrictions on

DISCOVER BORDER COUNTRY REALTY

such practices? Why do the companies who do the fracking have unlimited access to fresh water in the northeast? The use of fracking in the gas and oil industries in northeastern B.C. has created severe problems for many of the residents. Why do you condone the process? Why are you not willing to follow the example set by the Atlantic provinces and place a moratorium on it until more research on its impacts has been done? In your job as premier you receive close to $200,000 plus the perks from holding the office of premier. As a single parent you can live comfortably both in Kelowna and Victoria on your salary. Do you ever think about the number of single mothers in B.C. who live well below the poverty line of $29,000. Recent reports have told us that the gap is $9,000. You like to remind us that the Liberal party has a mandate to pursue its objectives as it sees fit. Without question your party holds the majority of seats in the Legislative Assembly when it occupies them. However, your claim of having a mandate from British Columbians is not true. Only 52 per cent of eligible voters cast votes on May 14. Answers to the questions above would be appreciated. Thank you from a citizen without a voice. Roy Ronaghan, Grand Forks

Electrical ratepayers in Grand Forks might not be immune to a shock early in the New Year. A rise in the electrical rate for residential usage for FortisBC— approved recently by the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) at 3.3 per cent—could eventually trickle down to Grand Forks ratepayers. Even though the city enjoys some degree of autonomy with a municipally owned and operated electrical utility—one of five municipalities in the province to do so—it buys its power in bulk directly from FortisBC. Under the Grand Forks Electrical Utility the city supplies its residents with power, at a rate of around 98 per cent of what it would cost a direct customer of FortisBC. But the rate rise approved for FortisBC cannot be ignored and will prompt consideration for a hike in the city’s rates, said Doug Allin, chief administrative officer for the city. The city’s electrical engineer and its director of finance are currently analyzing rates, he said, and will be presenting their findings to council on Dec. 16 at a committee of the whole meeting. “It’s part of our policy process that we do that … and we will be discussing (rate) impacts,” Allin said. The agreement the city has with FortisBC is controlled by the BCUC, said Allin, so when FortisBC applies for a rate increase, the city will be affected by that. Purchase amounts are controlled.

New equipment for KBRH The Lower Columbia has a new digital stereotactic diagnostic mammography service, as well as other diagnostic imaging improvements at its regional hospital. The Digital Mammography Campaign raised $795,000 in 22 months, due to the generosity and commitment of donor groups. A mammography exam is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women, a process that is expedited with digital equipment. This advancement in diagnostic imagining means fewer invasive procedures and less travel outside the area for patients and their families.

This year the staff and management of Interfor again made a contribution to the Boundary Community Food Bank. Ryan Weltz, Silviculture Forester at Interfor’s Grand Forks mill, toured the food bank facility on Tuesday, Nov. 26 and presented a cheque for $2,000. “This is really appreciated,” said Larry Dickerson, food bank president. “We are all volunteers, we don’t receive any government funding, and to provide food for the record numbers we are seeing this year, we rely on the generosity of businesses and individuals.” “Donations of food or money are welcome year-round, and right now we sure could use a few more volunteers,” added volunteer coordinator Don Todd.

The 3.3 per cent FortisBC rate increase becomes effective the first day of 2014, but it could take some time for the rate to change in Grand Forks if it happens. After the committee of the whole discussion in mid December, a motion will have to be made and then approved at future regular council meetings on whether to raise the current electrical rates in Grand Forks. FortisBC filed for an application for the 3.3 per cent increase with the BCUC in July, said Neal Pobran, FortisBC corporate communications manager. “And we did get interim approval for that rate increase,” he said. Pobran said the interim approval allowed for the rate increase effective Jan. 1; however, the rate-setting procedure was ongoing and could be subject to change based on that regulatory process. “If the rate changes, customers’ bills will be adjusted accordingly,” he added. The FortisBC rate increase confirmation comes on the heels of BC Hydro’s announcement last week when Energy Minister Bill Bennett laid out that company’s 10-year plan, including a 15 per cent rate hike in the next two years, and then 10.5 per cent three years after that. Every year FortisBC has a rates setting process with the B.C. Utilities Commission that is open to anyone who wishes to attend or take part in at BCUC.com, said Pobran. Every year the City of Grand Forks reviews its electrical rates at the behest of council.

Happy Holidays

from the City of Grand Forks From Council Chambers

C

ity Council would like to wish everyone a very Happy and Safe Holiday Season! Grand Forks has been selected as one of seven municipalities across Canada to participate in the FCM Program, Head Start for Girls and Young Women and will be headed by Councillor Cher Wyers. This program has been selected to deliver a project that is national in scope, engaging girls’ and young women’s groups from a diverse cross-section of the country on the issues, barriers and solutions to greater civic and political participation within their communities. This project is designed to run for one year, from October 2013 until the fall of 2014. The objective is to increase the capacity of girls and young women to identify and respond to specific barriers to their full participation in civic, political and community life in Canada. Participating girls and young women, with support from women elected officials and community groups, will develop leadership

skills and help deliver innovative girl-led strategies to overcome these barriers and positively impact their communities. Through social media, girls and young women will be able to share stories, learn about exciting and innovative ways to engage their community, and implement strategies to increase their participation in civic and political life.

Mayor Taylor and Council would like to congratulate MAAP’s on its grand opening this past weekend. Council and Mayor Taylor were in attendance to show their support of

Snow removal reminder With the winter season fast approaching, the City of Grand Forks is asking residents to do their part in helping city crews make the snow removal process more efficient. You can help by ensuring that all Vehicles, RV’s, Boats and trailers are stored on your property and not on the side of the road; this keeps the boulevards clear providing easy access for snow removal equipment. As a reminder, under the City’s Traffic Regulations Bylaw No. 1956, any vehicles, boats, trailers, RV’s or recreational vehicles that do not have a current valid licence should be stored on the owner’s property or at a storage facility. The City of Grand Forks would like to thank you in advance for helping keep the snow removal process simple and safe.

DID YOU KNOW:

Sea CanS

That Sea Cans / Shipping Containers used as storage facilities are not permitted for use in any Zone within the City of Grand Forks, with the exception of areas that are Zoned Industrial, in accordance with the current Zoning Bylaw No. 1606. An exception within other zones would be as temporary structures or storage of materials during an approved construction project; whereas the container would be required to be removed within 30 days after the completion of the construction.

ONE SHOULD ALSO KNOW: Any container (within a permitted zone), or structure that has a foot print larger than 100 square feet also requires a building permit for the placement and setbacks on a property. This will also ensure that the containers are set on a proper compacted gravel base or concrete foundations. Masonry blocks and or wood blocking do not meet the requirements of the BC Building Code as an acceptable foundation.

the program. The City recognizes that there are individuals in the community that face challenges which are of course exacerbated when basic needs such as a warm, safe place to sleep and food to eat are not available. Until recently, with the collaborative efforts of the Whispers of Hope, Habitat for Humanity and BETHS, there was a gap in the services that the community was able to provide to those at risk. Council believes that it is the responsibility of the community to take care of those less fortunate and the City is proud to have such a dedicated and creative group of individuals who put their heads together to find a solution to the ongoing issue of homelessness in Grand Forks. Council would like to remind everyone that Council Meetings are open to the public. If your organization is interested in providing an update to Council, consider attending a Committee of the Whole Meeting. For an up to date calendar of Council Meetings, visit www.grandforks.ca

Five of Grand Forks Fire Rescue team were recognized for their Long Service to the Fire Department, at the November 25th Regular Meeting of Council. Congratulations! Come on out to the Santa Claus parade and say hi to Council who will be on the City’s Float, on Friday December 6th! Council has lots of candy for the kids and the parade is going to be great. See you there!!

City develops new grants policy CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The city has adopted a community events and organization support policy. The policy includes provisions of information regarding grant opportunities, while the city website will include a page dedicated to community and organizational grant funding opportunities with links to cur-

rent granting information. The policy will also deal with non-monetary city support to organizations through offering assistance to grant applicants and support letters to organizations and groups. “I think this is a great distillation of conversations that council and staff have had and I wholeheartedly support this,” said Coun. Gary Smith. At a committee of the whole

IN BRIEF Conn set to stand trial The Grand Forks man accused of setting fire to City Hall in September will have a trial by jury beginning in late January in Rossland Supreme Court. Andre Conn will stand to face trail by jury Monday, Jan. 20 in Rossland after his indictment was filed recently, moving his case from provincial to supreme court. Conn, 31, is being charged with break and enter, arson, possession of incendiary materials, and possession of break-in instruments. The fire Sept. 19 in City Hall Thursday caused extensive damage and was classed by police as arson. On Monday, Nov. 25, Conn was in Rossland Provincial Court for his arraignment. 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. Christoper Cusack, the man charged in connection with two hotel fires last year, has a date fixed for Dec. 10 in Grand Forks.

Home inspector input sought Public input is being sought for the creation of an improved regulatory model for home inspectors. Two online surveys will run until Friday, Dec. 20: one to seek consumer opinions, the other to solicit feedback from industry and home-inspection professionals. British Columbia was the first province to license home inspectors and is still one of only two provinces doing so today. To be licensed, B.C. home inspectors must meet specific education requirements, receive appropriate practical training, pass at least one peer-test inspection review, and meet continuing education requirements by the inspector’s association. Take the consumer survey now: http://fluidsurveys.com/s/HIP/ Survey for home inspection professionals: http://fluidsurveys.com/s/ HIS/ In 2009, British Columbia became the first jurisdiction in Canada to require licensing of home inspectors. There are approximately 460 licensed home inspectors operating in B.C.

(COW) meeting on June 10, council reviewed and discussed a memorandum from staff that provided options for grant-inaid funding. Council directed staff to prepare a policy that addressed the points within the memorandum so that council could consider different options. Staff presented the policy for council’s consideration and discussion on Nov. 12.

“Right now we have to replace our infrastructure with pipes that are larger than our capacity as we go through our asset management plan,” he said. As soon as the city reduces its water consumption by 25 per cent it can replace water mains with smaller water mains, then it can replace sewer mains with smaller sewer mains. “Rather than building larger for the sake of building larger, we’re actually living within our means as a community,” said Allin. The issue of water mains comes down to protecting the Grand Forks aquifer, he added, because it is a known limited resource of water. “As soon as we’ve tapped that dry and caused problems we’ll be in trouble as a community,” Allin said. In late November a plan for a comprehensive water meter program for the city was unanimously given early budget approval by city council. In 2014 the city will begin the process of univer-

Meters

going public with meters Grand Forks residents will have many opportunities to learn more about water meters and associated costs. To kick off the information program, the city will host an open house on Jan. 22, providing more information about water meters, the process for installing, comparative costs and how the community and customers can use them to their benefit. Watch for more information at www. grandforks.ca.

sal water metering as a way to optimize water system services, reduce energy requirements and sizing infrastructure for reasonable water consumption rates. The city has received gas tax rebates to the tune of $1.3 million, so it has set aside that amount for the water metering project. Grand Forks industrial business are already hooked up to water meters.

Continued from Page 1

With the program expanding to include residential, each Grand Forks homeowner will have the ability to better control their usage, allowing them to conserve and save more. The average Grand Forks resident uses about 720 litres of water per day—that’s more than 3,000 cups of water every day. That’s also one-third more than the average British Columbian. If the trend continues, the city will need to spend millions of dollars upgrading and expanding its water and wastewater facilities, according to a city press release on water meters. Water meters have been shown to reduce water consumption by nearly 25 per cent in other communities, said Taylor in the release, and will reduce the city’s costs. Using less water means the City of Grand Forks public works will also use less power to run well pumps, reduce peak demands and help reduce the cost to maintain and operate the water system, added Taylor.

Talent show to help out typhoon victims CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

When Lillian Starchuk and her classmates heard about the devastation in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan, they knew they needed to help out. The Grand Forks Secondary Schools’ (GFSS) Global Citizenship Club, which Starchuk and her friends belong to, raised $200 just from a bake sale. They are now putting on a talent show Wednesday, Dec. 4 (7 p.m. GFSS gym) with all proceeds going to the Philippines disaster recovery efforts. “We were trying to find ways to raise awareness and funds to help in third world countries,” said Starchuk. “When we heard about this tragic event in the Philippines, we thought we should help them out.” Starchuk said she knows people whose families are from the Philip-

pines and are affected. “Lots of people have lost their lives,” she said. “Many people in our community may not have heard back from their families. It’s tragic when something like this happens. It affects people throughout the world.” Starchuk says they’ve lined up several singers, as well as a few bands, a piano act, and they’re looking into having some slam poetry. “We have a variety of talent and acts from the school as well as a few from the community,” she said. “It would be great to have everyone in the community come out and support this great cause. Just because we’re a small community doesn’t mean we can’t have a large impact.” The show will take place starting at 7 p.m. at the GFSS auditorium. Entry is by donation with the group asking for a $3 minimum donation. There will also be a raffle held with prizes that have been donated by local businesses.

Festive Family Storytime returns to library

I

t’s here, it’s finally here! Our 13th annual Festive Family Storytime will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. We’ve got storytellers and musicians—and a visit from Santa himself. Snacks will be served, and each family will get to take home a gift book. Don’t miss it! Lego at the Library Come to the library on Friday, Dec. 13 from 1-3 p.m. and get creative with our big bins of Lego. All ages are welcome (pre-schoolers must be accompanied by an adult). And don’t you worry: a snack will be served!

z Check it Out AVI SILBERSTEIN

The Grand Forks branch of the Knights of Columbus recently donated $300 each to the Boundary Community Hospice, Boundary Community Food Bank and Special Olympics—Grand Forks. The money is from the charity appeal tickets the Knights of Columbus members sell outside of local businesses. (From left) Grand Knight Casey Sykes; Larry Dickerson, president of the food bank; T.J. Vanvernite, Gregg Stubbington and Arlene Vanvernite, from the local Special Olympics; Liz Stewart, Don VonBank and Christine Brooks from Boundary Hospice; and Ken Weisner, financial secretary of the Knights of Columbus.

IN BRIEF Konanz withdraws The name of Helena Konanz has been withdrawn in the coming race for the South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding. In an email late last week Konanz declined to let her name stand for the nomination for the Conservative Party of Canada in the new riding.

Is your pet a star in your household?

“Due to personal and family reasons, I’ve decided not to run for the Conservative nomination,” she said. “I’ve done a lot of reflection and have decided holding the position of MP in this large riding would not be in the best interests of my family.” She said she enjoyed her role as a city councilor in Penticton, and wanted to continue to work for that city, remaining on Penticton city council in the future. 10th Annual

“I continue to support the Conservative party and wish whomever wins the nomination all the best,” she said. “It’s going to be a tough job, but I’m sure a very fulfilling job for the right candidate.” Konanz had announced Nov. 14 that she would seek the nomination for the Conservative Party of Canada in the new riding.

Christmas

Planning ahead Making preparations for a safe ride home a necessity at Christmas time CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

December is the time for parties and social events and spreading good cheer. Unfortunately, those who get behind the wheel after consuming too much cheer could find themselves in trouble with the police, or worse. Grand Forks RCMP are joining the nationwide enforcement policy for impaired driving. “It’s going to begin with an enforcement blitz on Dec. 7,” said local Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “Impaired driving is an entirely preventable cause of death and injury that has an immense cost and devastating effects on our communities.” Police are asking people that if you’re drinking do not drive. Instead, arrange an alternate way home such as public transit or arrange for a designated driver.

“The key message is to plan before you go,” said Harrison. He said that people who go out and have no plan for getting home often have a couple of drinks and think they’re okay to get behind the wheel to drive. ‘It’s a formula for disaster,” he said. “If you know you’re going to a seasonal party and you’re going to be consuming alcohol, make a plan and stick to it. We’ll be out there and anyone out there who we encounter who blows a fail on our roadside screening device will likely be prohibited from driving for 90 days and have their vehicle impounded for 30 days. It’s pretty costly.” The RCMP is partnering with the provincial government and ICBC in the annual December CounterAttack campaign which urges drivers to plan ahead for a

safe ride home if their holiday festivities will involve alcohol. “The reality is that approximately one third of all car crash fatalities in B.C. are related to impaired driving,” said Todd Stone, minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, in a press release. “These are preventable tragedies. Safety is our top priority and we want everyone to do their part this Christmas season and look out for their friends and family— take a stand and don’t let them get behind the wheel impaired.” Chief constable Jamie Graham, chair of the B.C. Association of Chiefs on Police Traffic Safety Committee, said that every December the RCMP sees people who think they’re okay to drive but end up causing crashes that change lives forever. “The hardest aspect of a police officer’s job

is telling a family they have lost a loved one as a result of one foolish decision—a loss that could have been prevented,” he said in a press release. “We know there will be many gatherings this holiday season and that’s why officers across the province are dedicated to keeping impaired drivers off the road.” Alternate options for getting home include having a sober friend, walking or taking a cab. In Grand Forks and area, that means calling Grand Forks Taxi. That’s the new name for Boundary Taxi. William “Sunny” Schneider, owner/operator of the service, has hired a second driver which means the company will now offer service 24 hours per day. Schneider is already planning for New Year’s Eve when he will be bringing in

the numbers don’t lie

One alternative to arranging a safe ride home this holiday season is hiring a taxicab, like this Grand Forks Taxi owned by William Schneider.

• During December, an average of five people are killed in B.C. each year in crashes involving impaired driving. • While attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed considerably over the years, an average of 95 lives are still lost each year and impaired driving remains a leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C. • Every December, an average of 1,100 people are injured in 3,800 crashes in the Southern Interior. • On average, 31 people are killed in crashes involving impaired driving in the Southern Interior every year. • Crashes and injured victims from ICBC data (2008 to 2012); fatal victims from police data (2008 to 2012). Impaired is defined to include alcohol, illicit drugs and medicines.

a second cab in order to accommodate more people. The cab company is busiest on Friday and Saturday evenings, but Schneider said that the evening party crowd has dropped considerably since the Winnipeg and Grand Forks hotels burned down last year. Schneider said that people can call ahead and make a reservation at any time to

ensure they get a cab when it’s busy. “But, normally, people rarely have to wait for more than 10 minutes,” he said. “And

Della Mallette photos

Shout For Joy was the name of Grand Forks Choral Society’s Christmas concert, but there was no shouting – the voices of the choral society, Vocal Chords, Grand Forks Secondary Quartet and the Altones were raised in beautiful harmony for a program of carols and ballads. The concert, held at the GFSS auditorium Saturday evening and again Sunday afternoon, was also a celebration of the choral society’s 25th anniversary.

I supported photo radar initially because when used in high-collision locations, elsewhere in the world, it has a remarkable record for reducing death and injuries.

OF THE WEEK:

ten (74 percent) rate it as “good” (68 percent) or “very good” (6 percent), while only 22 per cent deem it “bad” (19 percent) or “very bad” (3 percent). Overall, only 16 percent of British Columbians believe that the province’s roads are “not too safe” or “not safe at all” for motorists, while four-in-five (82 percent) consider them “very safe” or “moderately safe.” This is the first of four surveys Insights West will conduct during the next year in partnership with Black Press. We hope these poll findings will find their way in the current speed limit and traffic safety review by the provincial government. This week in Driveway, our “Question of the Week” and “Drives-U-Crazy” spots focus on speed-related issues please participate online.

Should the maximum speed limit on the highways be raised to 110 km/h and 120 km/h on the Coquihalla network?

Safety Tip: During the months of November and December there is an 86 per cent increase in crashes where a pedestrian is injured compared to July and August.

At the Monday, Nov. 25 meeting of Grand Forks city council, Mayor Brian Taylor presented five volunteer firefighters with exemplary service (federal) and long service (provincial) medals for recognition of over 20 years of dedicated service to the community. Dean Gourlie and John Feenstra were awarded the federal exemplary service medal from the office of the governor general, which honours members of a recognized Canadian fire service who have completed 20 years of service. Lyle Dorner, Dean Bryant and Loren Dorner were awarded the provincial long service medal from the B.C. office of the fire commissioner. From the OFC website: “British Columbia long service medals are awarded by the provincial government to persons who have completed at least 25 years of paid or volunteer fire service in British Columbia. “This is to recognize the dedication and selflessness with which these individuals have served their community and this province in the protection of life and property.” From left, Dean Gourlie, John Feenstra, Lyle Dorner, Dean Bryant, Chief Dale Heriot and Loren Dorner.

IN BRIEF Mineral revenues to benefit Similkameen bands The Upper Similkameen and Lower Similkameen Indian Bands will be better able to pursue activities that enhance governance, and the social, economic and cultural well-being of their members, thanks to mine-revenue sharing from an Economic and Community Development Agreement (ECDA)

for the Copper Mountain Mine, located southwest of Princeton. Through the ECDA signed in March 2013, the two First Nations are receiving over $400,000, a share of mineral tax revenues collected by the province from Copper Mountain. The monies will be split equally between the First Nations.

IN BRIEF Strengthening disclosure In response to allegations that public bodies are failing in their duty to warn the public about health and safety concerns, a new report from B.C.’s Information and Privacy Commissioner is recommending changes to freedom-of-information law to strengthen proactive disclosure requirements. Commissioner Elizabeth Denham launched a systemic investigation into the issue after receiving a written submission from the BC Freedom of Information and Privacy Association (“FIPA”) including a detailed report from the University of Victoria’s Environmental Law Clinic. The submission alleged a systemic failure by public bodies to disclose information under section 25. The investigation report, published Wednesday, makes three recommendations for change, including policies and training for public bodies and their employees specific to section 25, as well as amending FIPA to mandate public bodies to disclose information in the public interest, even where the information is of a non-urgent nature. Investigation Report F13-05: Public body disclosure of information under section 25 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, is available online at: www.oipc.bc.ca.

IN BRIEF B.C. budget still in the black, barely

Gazette file photo

The property as it looked back in late August before council delivered its third notice.

Property

With half of the fiscal year in the books, the B.C. government is clinging to a small surplus that was promised in this spring’s election. Finance Minister Mike de Jong presented the province’s second quarter budget update Wednesday, projecting that the fiscal year will end in March with a surplus of $165 million. That’s up $29 million from the September budget update. Corporate tax revenue is higher than expected, making up for personal tax revenue that was $284 million less than forecast. Part of the decline in personal income tax is due to employment, which de Jong said was disappointingly “flat lined” so far in 2013. He said unemployment has “dropped modestly” and full-time employment has grown, but the province has work to do to meet its jobs plan goal. NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth said the heavily advertised jobs plan is a flop, and the unemployment rate is down largely because 12,500 people have left B.C. to seek work since the plan was launched two years ago. “Just look at the job numbers,” Farnworth said. “By their own admission, they’re pathetic.” Another revenue loss for the B.C. treasury is provincial sales tax revenue, which is running $100 million below the budget forecast for the year. De Jong said one factor in that is that not all businesses have registered to collect and remit the PST since the province cancelled the harmonized sales tax last March. More than 102,000 businesses have applied to register for the PST, and the finance ministry is continuing to assist businesses with seminars and one-on-one consultations on switching over. De Jong said finance ministry staff have given businesses time to adjust and comply, but the grace period is ending. “As we move into 2014, we’re going to expect people to fulfil their obligations and remit PST that they are obliged to, and officials will be pursuing that with the diligence that you would expect,” de Jong explained. — Tom Fletcher, Black Press

Allin said city staff was definitely working with the property owner rather than using a heavy-handed approach. “We want to give them the opportunity because we know there are other circumstances at play in the process,” he said. “The owner has shown positive signs in cleaning up, so we’d like to continue down this path before any other steps are required.” Kopan reported that he visited the property in October and found the cleanup had appeared to stall and thus sent out the third and final notice for the bylaw infractions. “In this letter I indicated that I would be on site on Nov. 19, 2013 to review the remaining items that would need to be removed from the property,” wrote Kopan.

This would then give the owner and the tenant an additional two weeks to complete the cleanup of the remaining items. Today the city will attend the site with a contractor to obtain a cleanup estimate. The city would then proceed with the cleanup during the week of Dec. 9-13. The city had received several prior complaints about the property, which had several derelict vehicles on it and tenants who lived out of recreational vehicles. But the main issues were the lack of potable water and washroom facilities for the additional tenants. The owner, Balhar Saini, had already received two notices from the city—with the first one coming in April—and one

from Interior Health. Kopan asked council on Sept. 9 for permission to send a third notice to the owner. The subsequent motion passed unanimously. Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor said it was an unfortunate situation for the residents living on the property. He said council was sympathetic to the fact these were people who were not living this way by choice. The situation illustrated a serious lack of housing for low income people in the community that they have to resort to that kind of drastic living conditions, Taylor said. “This has been ongoing for about six to eight months,” he said. “We need a resolution from council to clean up the property if they don’t do it on their own.”

A group of agencies with a mandate for public safety are joining together to provide information to help British Columbians stay safe in the backcountry during the upcoming winter season. Representatives from the BC Coroners Service, Environment Canada, Parks Canada and the Canadian Avalanche Centre are highlighting the risks and stressing the need for proper planning, equipment, training and monitoring of weather and snow conditions before venturing into the backcountry. “Research looking at coroners’ statistics shows that an average of 10 persons die each year in B.C. while engaged in winter activities like skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling,” says chief coroner Lisa Lapointe. “Another 15 or more persons die each year from hypothermia or exposure to cold.” Tips for staying safe In order to plan your backcountry trip in advance, you have to be aware of where to get the latest, best weather information. According to the following timeline, you can choose to use/access different tools: 1. Speak to an Environment Canada meteorologist, four to seven days prior to your departure. Available at 1-900-565-5555 or 1-888-292-2222. 2. Check for special weather statements issued three days prior to your departure: http://weather.gc.ca/warnings/SWS_ bulletins_e.html?prov=bc 3. Warnings issued 24 hours prior to your departure. Environment Canada is the only agency authorized to issue weather warnings. Please note that weather warnings are never issued more than 24 hours in advance: http:// weather.gc.ca/warnings/?prov=bc.

Students Taking Action This Week in Sports TYRA REXIN

SIMONE GENTRY

The Global Citizenship Club, a group dedicated to fundraising and raising awareness, got off to a great start with their bake sale for the Philippine Relief Effort on November 11th and 12th at GFSS. The group was started by Ms. Merry and Ms. Matheson who felt our school was lacking this social justice for those impoverished. They were surprised however when a total of thirty five students showed up at the first meeting! The club has proven to be extremely active, raising nearly $500 with their bake sale for the Philippines. Another fund raiser is coming up tonight, GFSS’s talent show and raffle. So come on out and show your support for those devastated by the typhoon and for our school talent. Admission is by donation (a minimum of $3) with raffle tickets at $2 each. Whatever money is raised for the Philippine Relief Effort by December 8th will be matched by the government. Your donations make more of a difference than you might think. The Global Citizenship Club’s efforts are currently divided between five projects: The Philippine relief-bake sale/donations, the Philippines relief talent show, the Stamp Out Poverty campaign, a drive for our local-food

The Global Citizenship club has been very active, working to make a diffrence in the community with their food bank-drive and on a global scale with their fund raisers for the Philippine Relief Effort and their Write for Rights campaign bank/Christmas hampers, and a Write for Rights-human rights day on December 10th. The stamp out poverty campaign is a fundraiser, although not the usual type. Students are collecting stamps, from old letters and from Christmas cards, which are being sent to Oxfam and will be sold to collectors around the world. The money will be going to developing countries in poverty and towards the promotion of women’s rights. Anyone with stamps to donate (they’re worthless to you anyway!) You can take them to

Ms. Merry or Ms. Matheson at the high school. On December 10th the Global Citizenship Club will be holding their Write for Rights day in the Multi-Purpose room at GFSS during lunch. This day, in support of those individuals having their rights violated, is honoured in over seventy five countries around the globe. Students are asked to take a few minutes out of their lunch to write to the governments of these people in hopes of pressuring them into stopping violations of human rights.

Prematurely Judged

“I do not want my image to the public to be determined by the uncontrollable actions of others” ELENA PLOTNIKOFF

]

Children are associated with innocence and teenagers are correlated with selfishness and delinquency. What is it that takes place between childhood and adolescence that denies teenagers of innocence until proven guilty? Teenagers are the scapegoats, the red herrings, the ones to blame when something goes wrong because of their awkward place in society; no longer kids but not yet adults. Even local businesses engage in the prejudgment of teenagers as thieves and troublemakers. Unfortunately, they have partial grounds to be doing so having had past experiences with people of our age group behaving in a crooked manner. The actions of several teenagers have dictated a permanent view in the eyes of others. While this premature conviction on the behalf of others is frustrating, the outstanding issue is the face of teenagers being stereotyped. Being a part of a group of people that is already under analysis further magnifies

Grounds for discrimination are seemingly justified when youths behave the way that they are suspected to. Although the judgments occurring by people and establishments may be explainable, they are still not excusable negitive associations. The conduct of a few has predetermined our societal image and personally, I find it disheartening. I do not want my image to the public to be determined by the uncontrollable actions of others who behave in a less than desirable manner. Yet, it has become a crime simply to

The Junior Girls volleyball team played fantastic in their finals on November 22nd and 23rd. Although they were unable to travel for the duration of the season, coaches Mr. Dunnet, Mr. Grey and Mrs. Grey agreed to take the team to the West Kootenay finals. The Junior Girls were split into two teams due to the large number of girls; grade nines on one team and grade tens on the other. The grade nine girls headed to Mt. Sentinel on the 22nd and played games against Mt. Sentinel, Stanley Humphries, L.V.R. and BCSS. The girls won against both L.V.R. and Stanley Humphries but lost in close games against Mt. Sentinel and BCSS. The grade ten girls headed to Castlegar on the 23rd and played games against Lucerne, Stanley Humphries, L.V.R. and

Nakusp. It was an impressive tournament for the grade tens, coming home with second place and remaining undefeated until their final game against L.V.R. Although the Junior Girls were not given the opportunity to play competitively during the season, it is clear that all their practice has paid off The Grade eight girls have also finished their season as of November 23rd as they attended finals in Mt. Sentinel. Both the Red team and the Black team were able to participate in this tournament and both played extremely well! The Red team took second place in the finals, making GFSS proud with their outstanding playing ability. The Black team also played hard and came home with fourth place in the tournament. Great job girls!

On Sunday, the Bruins played a home game in Midway and lost to a strong Kelowna squad 7-3.

Bruins sink under .500 with losses CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The Border Bruins dropped two games last week to drop below .500 at approximately the midway mark of the season. On Sunday, the Bruins played a home game in Midway and lost to a strong Kelowna squad 7-3. The game in Midway at the Boundary Expo Rec Centre was the first of three the Bruins will play there. The other times will be Jan. 10 against Princeton and Jan. 22 versus Osoyoos. “We outplayed them for 55 minutes and had a meltdown in the last five,” said Bruins head coach Kevin Flather. “What I saw was a lot of guys quitting on Kai (goalie McDonald); you can’t have that kind of effort.” Flather had to watch the game from the stands in Midway after being suspended. The suspension came about because McDonald skated in the pregame warm-up in an earlier game while being suspended. “He skated through warm-up while he was suspended while we awaited an emergency back-up status from the league,” said Flather. Matt Zanec stepped in behind the bench to fill in once again. Kelowna hit the scoreboard first with Jordan Salahor scoring at the 4:44 mark of the first period. Michael Rand tied the game up three minutes into the second, assisted by Tucker Brown and Reid Robertson. Jagger Bowles put the Chiefs up 2-1 with a power play marker at 15:22 of the second. The Bruins got back to back goals to go up 3-2 heading into the second period break. Scoring were Connor Gross (assisted by Dakota Little and Rand) and Lincoln Lane (assisted by Ravinder Shokar and Brown). Unfortunately, the third period was all Kelowna as they rattled off five straight goals including a pair each from Nick Josephs, the KIJHL’s leading scorer with 65 points, and Nicholas Kovacik. “Kelowna played well,” said Flather. “Their top line picked us apart. Our guys have to know who they’re playing against.” Flather was appreciative of the Midway crowd and said it was a great atmosphere for a game. One of the benefits of being suspended and

watching the game from the stands for Flather was that it allowed him to meet some of the fans. “It was great,” he said. “I’m looking forward to returning there. It was a good crowd for a Sunday afternoon game.” In net for the Bears was Kai McDonald, who stopped 30 of 37 Chief shots. GF actually outshot their opponents from the Central Okanagan 43-37, but could only get three past Kelowna netminder Tyler O’Donnell. On Tuesday, Nov. 26, GF fell 4-2 to the surging Beaver Valley Nitehawks on the road. “That was the end of five games in seven days—we were on cinder block legs,” said Flather. Flather hopes the acquisition of AP (associate player) Spencer Kozlowski will shore up the goalie position. With starting goaltender Dominick Stadnyk expected to be sidelined until January with a shoulder injury, the addition of Kozlowski should help ease the workload of McDonald. Next up, the Border Bears host the Braves on Saturday at the Grand Forks Arena. On Sunday, the Bruins return to Fruitvale to once again take on the second place Nitehawks. “In practice yesterday, the boys were introduced to junior hockey,” said Flather, intimating that there was a great deal of conditioning at practice. “We taught them about work ethic. They skated the entire practice. (It was) basically a no puck practice. We were sending a message that you don’t quit when things don’t go your way.” With two inter-division games, Flather stresses the importance of this upcoming weekend. “It’s another huge four point game (versus Spokane),” he said. “Those are must win games at all cost. I would consider our Spokane games play-off games. That’s how important they are. “We have to start beating our division teams, because it’s controlling our own destiny. We’ll ensure the people we are trying to catch and stay ahead up aren’t getting two points.” Grand Forks remains in the fourth and final play-off spot in the Neil Murdoch division with a 10-12-2-1 record for 23 points in 25 games. The Spokane Braves are only four points behind with an 8-17-0-3 record for 19 points in 28 games.

Quote of the WeeK:

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ~ Oscar Wilde Joke of the Week:

A drill sergeant had just chewed out one of his cadets, and as he was walking away, he turned to the cadet and said, “I guess when I die you’ll come and dance on my grave.” The cadet replied, “Not me, Sarge...no sir! I promised myself that when I got out of the Army I’d never stand in another line!”

The Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) basketball teams will be in action next Wednesday, Dec. 11, when all three teams (Grade 8, junior and senior) travel to Castlegar to take on their Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) counterparts. The three boys teams, meanwhile, will be hosting their SHSS counterparts in Grand Forks the same day. All three girls teams started practices towards the end of November at the completion of volleyball season. For the senior girls team, the Wolves will rely heavily on seniors such as high scoring guard Shayna Plotnikoff. The team has a new coach this year, former player Brittni Pauls, and is working hard on defence and passing. “We have a strong four in Grade 12 that have played together since Grade 8,” said Plotnikoff. “This is the same team we had in junior year.” Plotnikoff says that practices have been going well so far and the team is looking sharp so far.

The Grand Forks Secondary senior girls basketball squad works on their passing at practice on Dec. 2.

“It’s been really good,” she said. “We’ve been working hard. We’ve got some good players. We’ve worked on a lot so far and we’re looking forward to our first game.” Plotnikoff adds that the team is strong in the backcourt and works well together. “We have some really good shooter and some good ballhandlers,” she said. “I feel we work really well together because we’ve played together for so many years.” With the team moving to

single A (smaller schools designation), Plotnikoff says they’re looking forward to new rivalries. “I’m hoping we do really well,” she said. “Some of the teams that have been big competition for us (like Nelson and Trail) are higher up now. It’s a fun team. I’m really looking forward to it.” The senior girls first tournament is in Osoyoos on Dec. 13 and 14. But first up, is the exhibition game in Castlegar against the Rockers.

Sports IN BRIEF Pee wees go undefeated in Castlegar tourney The Grand Forks pee wee hockey team was successful again, this time in Castlegar Nov. 22-24.

After years of study to become an Anglican priest, Cathy Straume was ordained at St. Michael and All Angels, the Anglican cathedral in Kelowna, on Sunday, Nov. 24 with Archbishop John Privett officiating. Cathy was raised in Ontario and later moved to the Boundary country, living in Greenwood for the past 30 years. She has always been involved in the church and as a community volunteer. She started the thrift shop and community garden at St. Jude’s in Greenwood. She has been and continues to be a great help to many people in her community. Cathy started her studies 12 years ago to be ordained in the Anglican Church. This journey came to fruition in May when she was ordained a deacon and on Sunday, Nov. 24, a priest. She completed her required courses of theological education, by extension, in the four-year Education of Ministry Program from the University of the South, Michigan. She has also completed the required courses from the Kootenay School of Ministry, a three-year program. The Kootenay School of Ministry was established for the ordination of locally ordained deacons, priests or lay people who wish to broaden their theological education.

Frances Verna Elliott

July 19, 1950 – November 20, 2013 Fran, aged 63, after waging a second battle with cancer, left this world November 20, 2013 with a smile on her face and as usual, the last word. She was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Dorothy Bjerke and half-sister Patsy Babiuk. Survived by her husband of 42 years, Ross Elliott, daughters Maegan (Martin) Elfert, Garrity Elliott, son Jared Elliott, grandchildren Rylee and Dwight Elfert, sister Linda (Marlin) Timko, many nieces and nephews, her best friend Vivian Desgagne and her daughter Courtney Crawford along with a ton of in- laws and extended family. Over her 35 years in Midway, Fran formed many friendships through her volunteer and community work throughout the valley. She went through life with gusto, humor, a smile on her face, and along with her honesty, her open mind and sharp tongue, she called a spade a spade. She was not afraid to tackle anything or anybody and she loved to go to battle for the underdog and downtrodden. She will be greatly missed by her many tax clients, especially her seniors and students for whom she waged and won all of her battles against her arch-enemies, the bureaucrats at MSP and Revenue Canada. R.I.P. Fran, your earthly battles are done. At her request, there will be no service and she said, “I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one and I’d like to leave an echo”.
