The assessments are in and Cranbrook homes remain stable Submitted
As 2014 marks BC Assessment’s 40th anniversary, owners of more than 14,000 properties
in the City of Cranbrook and the surrounding area can expect to receive their 2014 assessment notices in the next few days.
“Most homes in Cranbrook are remaining stable in value compared to last year’s assessment roll,” said Rod Ravenstein,
Get active, get healthy! Sign up your school by January 15th The 60 Minute Kids' Club is a fun and engaging program designed to get children from K - Gr. 6 excited about making the right healthy choices.
Kootenay Region Deputy Assessor. “Most home owners in the City of Cranbrook will see only modest changes depending on location. For example, a typical single family home in Cranbrook that was previously assessed at $250,000, was valued at $253,000 in the summer of 2013.” Overall, the City of Cranbrook’s Assessment Roll increased from $2.63 billion last year to $2.66 billion this year. This value reflects a modest change due to market movement as well as $24.5 million in growth due to subdivisions, rezoning and new construction. The examples below demonstrate local market trends for residential properties by geographic area; City of Cranbrook & Area. (Valuation dates
are taken in July 1 of the year.) City of Cranbrook $ 250,000 (2012) $ 253,000 (2013) Victoria Meadows/ Panorama $ 253,000 (2012) $ 261,000 (2013) Park Royal $ 348,000 (2012) $ 357,000 (2013) Anderson/Sylvan/ Summit $ 268,000 (2012) $ 279,000 (2013) Gyro Park $ 225,000 (2012) $ 223,000 (2013) Joseph Creek/ Brookview $ 234,000 (2012) $ 231,000 (2013) Southview $ 318,000 (2012) $ 328,000 (2013) Cranbrook Rural Fire Protection $ 300,000 (2012) $ 291,000 (2013) In addition, owners of commercial and indus-

trial properties in the City of Cranbrook will see modest changes in the 0 to 5% range. “Property owners who feel that their property assessment does not reflect market value as of July 1, 2013 or see incorrect information on their notice should contact BC Assessment as indicated on their notice as soon as possible in January,” said Ravenstein. “If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our appraisers, they may submit a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) by January 31, for an independent review by a Property Assessment Review Panel,” added Ravenstein. The Property Assessment Review Panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and meet between February 1 and March 15 to hear formal complaints. The East Kootenay assessment office is located at Suite 200, 117 Cranbrook St North in Cranbrook. During the month of January, office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Property owners can contact BC Assessment toll-free at 1-866-valueBC (1-866825-8322) or online by clicking “CONNECT” at www.bcassessment. ca. Visit www.bcassessment.ca for more information about the 2014 Assessment Roll including lists of 2014’s top 100 most valuable residential properties across the province. Of note, 2014 is BC Assessment’s 40th anniversary, marking forty years of value to British Columbia. Facts on B.C. Property Assessments and the 2014 Assessment Roll. Total number of properties on the 2014 roll is 1,954,445, an approximate 1% increase from 2013. Total value of real estate on the 2014 roll is $1,141,848,449,910, a 1.35% increase from 2013. Total amount of ‘non-market change’, including new construction and development: approximately $17.54 billion, an increase of 5.38% from the 2013 roll of $16.64 billion.
In B.C., approx. 87.7% of all properties are classified with some residential (Class 1) component. This equates to over $864 billion of the value on the total provincial roll. Over 98% of property owners accept their property assessment without proceeding to a formal, independent review of their assessment. Assessments are the estimate of a property’s market value as of July 1, 2013 and physical condition as of October 31, 2013. This common valuation date ensures there is an equitable property assessment base for property taxation. Changes in property assessments reflect movement in the local real estate market and can vary greatly from property to property. When estimating a property’s market value, BC Assessment’s professional appraisers analyze current sales in the area, as well as considering other characteristics such as size, age, quality, condition, view and location. Real estate sales determine a property’s value which is reported annually by BC Assessment. Local governments and other taxing authorities are responsible for property taxation and, after determining their own budget needs this spring, will calculate property tax rates based on the assessment roll for their jurisdiction. BC Assessment’s assessment roll provides the foundation for local and provincial taxing authorities to raise more than $6.2 billion in property taxes each year. This revenue funds the many community services provided by local governments around the province, including the public school system. BC Assessment’s website provides a listing of property assessments and sales to help property owners understand their property’s market value and provide comparable sales information. Go to www.bcassessment.ca and click on the e-valueBC link. Copies of neighbourhood assessments are also available at local area offices and most municipal halls and government agent’s offices across the province.

Bear hunt not necessary Submitted Wildsight has been engaged with grizzly bear population surveys as well as efforts to assure healthy grizzly bear populations in the region for several decades. While it is true that grizzly bear numbers are recovering in this region, it is a simplistic misrepresentation to suggest that recovery is complete and that a hunt is necessary to avoid grizzly encounters with humans. These conclusions are not supported by either detailed grizzly population data or the science of human bear-conflict. Population numbers can easily give the false impression of an overabundance of bears roaming the region. While approximately 900 grizzly bears do inhabit the Purcells and Rockies between the US border and Golden, these are sometimes broken into small isolated populations—particularly in the southern Purcells. Isolated populations are threatened with extinction. Fragmentation of populations remains a significant issue and there remains a dire need to create and maintain connectivity corridors with adjoining bear populations. The suggestion that hunting is necessary to protect people from grizzlies is misinformed and counter to all research on human-bear incidents. It has been consistently demonstrated that guns and the attempted use of lethal force lead to increased injuries of both humans and bears -- and are far less effective than bear spray. A recent Human-Bear Conflict Conference in Missoula – featuring leading researchers from across North America concluded that hunting

Wildsight claims the grizzly bear population in the area is still recovering. does not reduce humanbear conflict. Most encounters arise when people come in proximity to bear food sources. Bear sightings have steadily increased in the valley since the return of kokanee to our river systems, but the vast majority of bears are neither encountered nor seen by residents, particularly if people practice bear smart management of waste and fruit trees. The incident of watching a bear consume a horse carcass is the result of poor livestock disposal, and it creates a risk to anyone unaware of the feeding sight. Gut piles left by hunters also lead to human-bear interactions. Bears do their best to avoid humans, unless it becomes a choice between food and confronting people. It is everyone’s responsibility to avoid bear habituation to human food sources. Increased sightings in urban areas are often associated with the failure of berry crops, and only a bear aware community will reduce conflicts. The majority of recorded grizzly mortality is not from hunting, but hunting does unnecessarily increase mor-
talities. Currently, collisions with trains and highway vehicles represent significant causes of grizzly bear mortality. Human-bear interactions arising from poor management of waste and fruit trees also contribute. Wildsight’s vision for healthy wildlife populations calls for select wildlife sanctuary areas in the Rocky and Purcell Mountains, combined with habitat protection and corridor management. Grizzly bears remain threatened despite healthy populations in some areas of the East Kootenay. There is much work to be done to maintain connectivity. Wildsight focuses efforts on maintaining critical habitat and recovery corridors, particularly across Highway 3 in the Purcells and the Rockies. Hunting will not make people safer. There is no evidence to suggest that opening the hunt will address problem bears wandering near human habitation. We all need to become bear smart and take action on how we influence wildlife behavior.

Medical and pension premiums set to increase over the year By Tom Fletcher Medical premiums for all but low-income B.C. residents go up again with the start of a new year. The B.C. government is increasing its Medical Services Plan premiums for the fifth straight year, by four per cent across the board. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation released its annual survey of tax and other payroll deductions Monday, calculating
that MSP premiums in B.C. have risen 28 per cent since 2010. Effective Jan. 1, the monthly health premium for a single person rises from $66.50 to $69.25. In 2014, families of two pay $125.50, up from $120.50, and families of three or more pay $138.50, up from $133.00. Many full-time employees have their MSP premiums paid by their employer. People earning $30,000 or less
are eligible for reduced premiums on a sliding scale, with premiums eliminated for those earning $22,000 a year or less. The B.C. government has used the increased MSP revenues to offset the long-term growth of health care costs, which are approaching half of the total provincial budget. Finance Minister Mike de Jong’s 2013 budget projected health spending to increase 2.3 per cent in
the current fiscal year, 2.7 per cent in the year beginning April 1 and only 2.2 per cent the following year.

Raymond Donald Seguin "Ray" 1935 - 2013 It is with deep sorrow that the family of Ray Seguin announces his passing on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 in Cranbrook, British Columbia at 78 years of age. Ray was born on March 13, 1935 in Potts Township, Northwestern Ontario, Canada to Yvonne Marie Seguin. He grew up on the farm where he learned about hard work. The lessons he learned there served him well throughout his life. From logger to tireman to heavy equipment mechanic to park ranger and everything in between, Ray was a jack-ofall-trades and a wonderful provider for his family whom he loved more than life itself. In 1957 Ray met and married Shelva Jean Coulson in Atikokan, Ontario. Together they raised 5 children, but many more were made to feel the welcoming embrace of their home. In 1979 Ray moved his family to Sparwood, BC and then to the Cranbrook area in 1993, where they lived until his passing. Ray is survived by his loving wife Shelva; daughters Charlene (Peter) Nelson, Debbie (Tim) Lyght, and sons Brian, Darryl (Stacy), and Justin (Kerri); grandchildren Kris, Amanda (Tim), Rachel (Clive), Michael (Britany) Ryerson, Mason, Aiden, Kayla, Kiana, Kinsey; and great grandchildren Jaxon, Owen and Rohn. He also leaves behind his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews and many dear friends to mourn his passing. The family would like to thank Dr. Wik and her emergency room staff for their diligent efforts in Ray's behalf, and for the gentleness and compassion they displayed in our behalf. Ray's funeral service was held on Friday, January 3, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints (1301 - Pondersosa Drive) in Sparwood, BC. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the: Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, Okanagan/ Kootenays Area Office, #4, 1551 - Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, British Columbia, V1Y 9M9 or the: Canadian Diabetes Association, PO Box 12013, Stn BRM B, Toronto, Ontario, M7Y 2L3. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com

Tony was born in Vancouver, BC to Anton and Joan Wideski on March 3, 1959. He graduated from BCIT in 1981. He had a long and fulfilling career with the Ministry Of Forests. During his years of service, Tony became an RPF, District Manager and ended his career as the Regional Executive Director. He was proud to be a part of this Province. Tony loved nature, from hunting to birding, he really enjoyed the outdoors. He loved everything the East Kootenays had to offer. He enjoyed gardening, hiking, golfing, snowshoeing, playing hockey and skiing. A proud, loving, caring, supportive husband and father, Tony was well respected in our community and will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his beautiful wife Pam, son Kurt, daughter-in-law Heather, daughter Kristy Biafore, son-in-law Anthony, sister Lori Chan and brother-in-law Kelvin.

Walter Komar 1929 - 2013 Walter passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 29, 2013. He was born in Brandon, Manitoba October 24,1929. Walter worked some very interesting jobs including two seasons with a travelling circus as well as on a steam ship on the Great Lakes. He then joined CP Rail working as a locomotive engineer until retirement. As he would often tell you, the best times at the railroad were the steam engine days. Walter had a variety of interests and over the years collected many books on all sorts of subjects. Brian's introduction to the iPad opened the World Wide Web to Walter. He loved it and enjoyed it immensely. His only regret was that it happened when he was 83 and not 25 years earlier! He spent many hours surfing the net searching foods of the world, painting styles and other subjects. Walter loved to talk and had a memory that was unbelievable. He could talk for hours about places, incidents, news stories or of his railroad years and always with amazing accuracy. Thanks go out to Dr. Fourie. We have never met a more caring doctor. Thanks also to the staff in the Lakit Unit at Joseph Creek Care Village. Walter will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Walter did not want a service but we will hold a celebration of his life at a later date. Should you wish to make a donation in Walter's name, please do so to either Cranbrook Hospice Society or go to Hungry for Life.org and donate to Dr. Cutler's International projects. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com

levels and biological cycles; scientific studies even show that adequate natural lighting at work can increase productivity and reduce absenteeism. Natural light also increases energy levels. When building or renovating, keep in mind that the intensity and distribution of natural light in a room depends on the dimensions of the space, the materials composing the internal surfaces, as well as its location, orientation, and the quality of the windows. Optimizing natural light â€˘ Several smaller windows are better than one large window, which causes more glare. â€˘ The positioning of windows on several walls ensures better light distribution. â€˘ High windows allow light to reach further into the home. â€˘ Windows in a horizontal line distribute daylight better than round or square windows, as the latter create a strong contrast between the window and the wall. â€˘ Large areas of dark colour should be avoided or situated away from windows, as they inhibit daylight from penetrating and cause glare when they are close to bright colours. Walls facing a window should be a pale colour. â€˘ Matte finishes distribute light more efficiently than shiny surfaces and create less glare. â€˘ Translucent interior windows and partitions allow natural light to reach throughout the house.
