Lack of criminal record check hampers home schooling parents

Poker club antes up Page 3

VOL 117 NO. 3

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES

CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

A local man has run into problems with Grand Forks Recreation Centre (GFREC) over what he says is a lack of proper criminal record checks. Scot Stewart (not the GFSS principal) is the parent of a home-schooled child who must participate in athletics in the community in order to have proper credits for graduation. He told the Gazette that in order to receive funding for the athletics, which could include swimming lessons or skating lessons or any club events, all instructors must have a proper criminal record check done. “I’m pretty annoyed at this,” he said. “It was a very simple request: ‘Could I verify that my kid’s instructor in swimming lessons has their criminal record check?’” Stewart said he was told that since employees at GFREC were appointed they didn’t need a criminal record check done as they were not applying for a job. “There’s some pretty serious stupidity going on here,” said Stewart. “Someone has decided what they want and its simply going to be their way.” Stewart said he and other parents of home-schooled children are in danger of losing funding from the government for the lessons because of the lack of criminal record checks. “You’re given a certain amount of money a year for lessons to make up for things you would miss like (physical education),” he said. “So you go and use the facilities to take swim lessons or whatever. But if you don’t go through the process you don’t get the money.” Stewart believed every single lesson taught at the GFREC in the last two and a half years that people paid for, the province could ask for the money back from those home schooling parents.

Housing valuations drop in Boundary region TIMOTHY SCHAFER Grand Forks Gazette

Property values for homes in Grand Forks have dropped, according to the latest figures from BC Assessment. In the 2014 assessment role for Grand Forks average home valuations (valuation date of July 1, 2013) dropped by an average of $7,000, meaning the aver-

age value of a home in the city was $199,000, down from $206,000. In nearby Greenwood, home values dropped by $1,000, from $126,000 to $125,000, while in Midway the values fell by $11,000, from $189,000 to $178,000. Owners of properties throughout the Boundary and the surrounding rural areas can expect to receive their 2014 assessment notic-

es in the next few days. “Most homes in the municipalities of Grand Forks and Greenwood, and in the surrounding rural area, have changed only marginally from last year’s assessment roll,” said Tracy Wall, BC Assessment’s deputy assessor in Kelowna. Over the pass, the neighbouring communities mostly experienced a drop, with Rossland ($238,000 down

from $243,000), Trail (down from $174,000 to $171,000) and Fruitvale (down from $186,000 to $185,000) going down, Warfield (the same at $170,000) and Montrose (up from $219,000 to $222,000) staying the same. Valuations rose in Nelson and Castlegar, with a typical single family home in Nelson assessed at $351,000 in 2013 now being valued at $354,000, while a $257,000

in Castlegar in 2013 is now valued at $260,000. Commercial and industrial properties in the area were expected to see changes ranging from a drop of five per cent to a rise of five per cent. Wall said if people feel their assessment does not reflect market value (as of July 1, 2013), they should contact BC Assessment this month.

1906 The total mineral production of the province was given as $25,357,535 out of this, The Osoyoos, Grand Forks and Greenwood mining divisions contributed $6,994,925. 1914 A carload of seven Ford automobiles was unloaded at Grand Forks for the Grand Forks Garage Co., being the first of a series of carload shipments of these popular cars which the Garage Co. received that year. 1919 The medical health officer’s report for 1918 was accepted at the regular meeting of city council. There were nine cases of Typhoid discovered and cured; five cases of Scarlet Fever discovered and cured, and six cases of Tuberculosis, five of which were cured in the Boundary last year. 1924 Hugh McCotcheon, who has been a collector of customs in Greenwood for 24 years, died at his home in that city last Sunday after an illness of six weeks. He was 73 years of age. 1929 North Fork’s long-hoped-for rural mail delivery was established on Jan. 16. 1934 The Finance Committee reported to a surprised city council a surplus of about $7,000. Council said this was very gratifying particularly in view of the reduced revenue and increased burdens entailed in the year’s operations. 1939 The rebuilding of the Great Northern Railway track back into Grand Forks is a probable development for the summer of 1939 according to officials in St. Paul. 1944 The last of the five Manly brothers,

pioneers of the Grand Forks district, Joesph L. Manly, passed away at Grand Forks Hospital on Jan. 11. His one ambition in recent weeks was to reach the age of 90 and he did on Jan. 10. 1949 City council set the price of $3.50 for each thawing of frozen water pipes, this being the amount paid by the council to Boundary Electric, the city supplying a helper and the necessary electricity fee. 1954 Mrs. A.

Pet of the Week

The Boundary New Year’s baby, Dennis James Friesen, was born Jan. 3 at Boundary Hospital, a son for Barbara and Dan Friesen of Grand Forks. 1989 Grand Forks’ New Years’ baby is Ashley Marie Derhousoff, born Jan. 6. 1994 According to information released by the B.C. Assessment Authority, single family residential properties in Grand Forks experienced the highest range of increase in approximate property value based on assessment in the province from July 1, 1992 to July 1, 1993. 1999 Paramedical staff in the Boundary and throughout B.C. began their first stage in job action as they started rotating job walkouts this week. Union representatives want to bridge the gap in wages and benefits between paramedical staff working in community-based agencies and hospitals. 2004 A truck driver suffered various injuries and was treated for exposure to the cold after a single vehicle accident on Hwy 3 near Norwegian Creek. Midway RCMP said the semi truck with a loaded trailer exited the road and dropped about 35 feet into the creek. The cab of the truck landed on its side and diesel fuel spilled into the creek. 2009 “When will it end?” was a question heard everywhere in the BoundaryKootenay last week as snow continued to fall land was topped by freezing rain. Every highway into the interior was cut off by avalanches, mudslides, or both at one time or another, isolating cities and preventing shipments of food, gasoline and other supplies from getting through.

POLICE BRIEFS SUV rolls over at Christina Lake On Jan. 8 at 9:40 a.m., RCMP received a call about a single motor vehicle collision on Highway 3 at Thompson Road in Christina Lake. “A green Ford Explorer rolled into the ditch,” said Cpl. Richard Lanz. “The vehicle was east bound and began to fish tail. The driver overcorrected and eventually hit the ditch and rolled, landing on its passenger side.” There were no injuries. The driver was 50-year-old female from Grand Forks. The cause of the accident was attributed to icy road conditions. Airbags, seatbelts potentially save lives At 1:10 p.m. on Jan. 8, RCMP received another call about a single motor vehicle collision on Highway 3 near Eholt Road west of Grand Forks with two people in the vehicle. “The vehicle pulled out to the left east side bound passing lane to pass a tractor trailer unit, and lost traction on the roadway,” said Cpl. Lanz. “The vehicle went off the road and rolled down an embankment.” The vehicle was a 2006 Mazda pick-up truck. Lanz added that seatbelts were worn by both people, and the airbags were deployed. No injuries were sustained. The driver was 66 years old. Hit and run On Jan. 11 at 3:30 p.m., a report of a hit and run in the Extra Foods parking lot was received by RCMP. “A witness to the incident obtained a plate number for the vehicle,” said Cpl. Lanz. “As a result of the investigation, the driver was located and was given a violation ticket for failure to stop after a collision with unattended vehicle.” The person receiving the ticket was a 49 yearold male. As a result of the collision, the front side headlight was broken and there was a dent to the front bumper.

Poker club ups the ante on card playing JIM HOLTZ

Grand Forks Gazette

There are currently 74 avid poker players in the Grand Forks area who belong to the G F Poker Club, according to club manager Frank Konrad. They meet every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Grand Forks Legion for three hours of poker action. According to Konrad, many of the members enjoy watching Texas Holdem poker on TV and appreciate the concentration and mental skill required to be a good poker player. None of them

want to lose any money, however, and so love the opportunity to play for fun. That is what the G F Poker Club offers them, weekly, competitive games of Texas Holdem, earning points and a chance to make it to the final table at the end of the calendar year. Though money is never won or lost, local merchants do donate prizes that are awarded to the top 16 players. “Many of us used to play Piranha Poker in the pub. But when that folded we thought we could organize something ourselves. “We wanted to help out the Legion

which was trying to increase its membership and encourage more people to use its facilities. It’s worked out well for everyone,” Konrad said. Legion bar steward Barbara Aguillon agreed. “It’s been very positive having them here. It’s a good atmosphere,” she said. For information on the G F Poker Club, call Frank Konrad at 250-4432370. For information regarding other Legion events, including darts and bingo, call the Legion at 250-442-8400 or Ken Gresley-Jones at 250-447-6197.

City gives budget approval for new $1.3-million fire truck CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

At the regular city council meeting on Jan. 13, council agreed to give early budget approval for the purchase of a ladder truck for Grand Forks Fire Rescue. The cost of the truck is $1.3 million and will be financed through a five year short term borrowing and funded by a five year parcel tax. At council, both Dale Heriot, Grand Forks fire chief, and Roxanne Shepherd, chief financial officer, gave a presentation on the project. Shepherd told council that due to several factors, such as the plunging Canadian dollar, the cost of short term borrowing would be much cheaper than borrowing over the long term. The cost of interest for long-term borrowing at 4.5 per cent over 20 years would be $1,170,000 as opposed to the cost of short term borrowing at three per cent over five years which would cost $195,000. She also explained that a five-year parcel (2015-19) would work out to $279,015 each year. With 3,052 folios in the 2013 revised roll, a flat parcel tax would be $91.42. “There are advantages to the flat tax,” she said. “Everybody pays evenly for the service rather than based on assessment. Also, the flat tax could help retain some

of the homeowner grant lost to the province.” Heriot explained that by purchasing the new ladder truck, the fire department will keep insurance costs down in the city. “Council recognized that even though their will be some cost to the taxpayer, it’s nowhere close to what it would cost in additional insurance cost if we don’t move in this direction,” said Mayor Brian Taylor. “I

think it really shows a long-term commitment from the community to a first rate excellent fire service. I think that’s really important to the community.” Taylor said the council and city staff will still need to finalize the details regarding the borrowing and financing of the ladder truck. “What we did tonight was give the green light to go ahead with buying the American money for the purchase (of the truck) without having to deal with the dropping Canadian dollar,” he said. Heriot told the Gazette that the new ladder truck is much needed by the fire department. “We’re very happy with how it turned out,” he said. “Our current ladder truck is a 1993 Superior Fire Truck. By fire underwriter’s standards, it has expired as far as useful life in being a frontline pumper to protect the community. We were in a position where we needed to replace the ladder truck.” Heriot said the life of fire trucks is 20 years, so when purchasing a new truck, the fire department has to look at what the needs of the community will be for the next 20-year time frame. “We generally won’t buy a fire truck that fits our needs today, but one that will fit our needs in 20 years,” he said. “There are plenty of positive signs in the commu-

nity right now. Anticipating for the future, that’s one of the reasons we’re making the purchase we are. We believe the community will be very positive moving forward.” Heriot said that all fire trucks are made south of the border in the United States which means a slumping Canadian dollar would increase costs. In addition, the fire truck must be custom made. “There not like when you buy a car off the car lot,” he said. “Every community is different, so every community requires something different for their fire truck.” Heriot said the truck will have a bigger pump allowing for more water flow. The ladder will be twice as long at 30.5 metres (100 feet). In addition, there will be a platform on the truck which will be much safer for the crew. “It gives us a lot more options with regards to rescue and firefighting and elevated water streams,” he said. Heriot added that they’ve already put the new truck out to tender and are currently reviewing bids. “We’ll talk with the CAO (Doug Allin) with regards to approaching the successful bidder,” he said. “We’ll enter into a contract situation with them. We’ll start with a pre-construction meeting on building a fire truck.” The actual construction of the truck is expected to take 12 to 15 months.

A growing issue

f one doubted Grand Forks was an agricultural community, they would only need to open the pages of the Gazette each week to see the stream of letters and stories coming in from people concerned with growing issues and issues of growing in the Boundary region. It’s a refreshing breath from the staff of life sector. Food, its production, its protection and its viability for the future should be paramount in everyone’s purview. From the concern over water meters (will we have enough water to cultivate gardens, yards, crops) to what sort of seed we put in the ground (chemically altered or not), to bringing back the ailing meat production industry, they are all sound issues and worthy of some thought. What is known about issues of an agricultural nature has been handed down to us over many generations, but we do have to give some credence and time to absorb what is new. All voices need to be heard and respected on the issues we are grappling with, and hopefully the right decisions will gravitate to the surface over time.

Hollywood takes new line in delivering movies second opinion

R

JIM HOlTZ

ecent Hollywood movie disasters have apparently prompted skittish studios and investors to look for outside help in designing movie projects. Multi-million dollar losses for The Lone Ranger, R.I.P.D and now 47 Ronin have convinced producers that a “new” approach to movie creation is needed. Just when we thought that Hollywood was already stuck in the rut of recycling old movies, digitizing old comic books and rejuvenating old action movie actors comes the news that the studios have decided to use even less imagination in developing new films. According to Tom Rowley of the London Daily Telegraph, studios are hiring scientists

to accumulate statistics from the Internet, crunch the numbers and come up with surefire plots, characters and actors, based on such data as the number of Wikipedia hits actors and movie titles get. If we thought that adolescent males were already influencing Hollywood about 10 times more than they should, and encouraging an endless stream of Adam Sandler films, we should brace ourselves for the projects that will soon be flooding the market. A key player in all this is the fast rising business enterprise called Epagogix, a firm that advises Hollywood studios, suggesting script and casting changes based on a complex computer algorithm. Its website states: “By understanding the critical risks facing a business, identifying the data around those risks, and developing customised artificial intelligence solutions, we help clients to better predict outcomes.

“Our forecasts help clients to make the best objective decisions about spending risk capital and managing operational budgets.” In other words, as long as the public Tweets, clicks and blogs about Adam Sandler’s films, we can expect more of them, just as we can continue to expect on television more of the likes of Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and Charlie Sheen; they are all tops on the Tweet-o-meter. The company is apparently quite proud that the intelligence employed in its decision making is artificial. Say no more. Rowley reports that Nick Meaney, CEO and co-founder of Epagogix, doesn’t think much of Casablanca. The Bogart classic didn’t perform that well at the box office when it first came out, and therefore was not a successful movie. “It was gloomy, downbeat and too long,” Rowley reports Meaney saying. “A

The guesswork for Hollywood is gone. Risk has vanished. Success is now inevitable. As long as movies contain adolescent humour, explosions, fabulous digitized special effects, clear cut good guys and bad guys, a love interest, a sidekick who dies in the line of duty, a villain who dies painfully, sex (but no visible naughty bits), a recognizable movie star and of course a happy ending, your investment is secure. Otherwise, save your money. And forget Casablanca, Citizen Kane, and Apocalypse Now. They obviously never should have been made. Jim Holtz is a Boundarybased writer.

Opinion

to the editor

Let’s keep poison out of public spaces To the Editor: It is true that we are far down the road of the genetically modified organism dollar game. However, we can still maintain principle if we so choose. Any profit with poisons is reprehensible in my view. Applying herbicides where children play is no one’s right. Public spaces, the commons,a re where people go for leisure, beauty, rest and play. Let’s keep them poison free, as they have been for the past decade and more in Grand Forks. Angelica Herlihy, Grand Forks

Taxation and voting made meaningful

To the Editor: Ronaghan’s column The great equalizer lamenting voters’ sloth invited answers to ‘why are you disillusioned?’ and ‘why are you not engaged?’ There are two equalizers that should be compulsory because each is a hallmark of democracy; voting and taxation. Both, fairly applied, mean engagement. An obligatory vote under a form of proportional representation would guarantee presence on every step of the democratic ladder; in cabinet, in committees, plenums, etc. A quarter of the vote equates to a quarter of representation across the board. The deputy prime minister should be from a party other than the prime minister’s. Co-operation and compromise mean more than the relentless betrayals we are witnessing. I have diminishing trust in the party system because parliamentarians become whipped and scripted vassals. A party winning 36 per cent and calling itself a ‘majority government’ (as is the case in Canada), and loading the dice is patently wrong, as is alarmingly manifest.

Thumbs Up to Pat Kelly

Thumbs up to Pat Kelly for the excellent write-up “Yuletide tale of Tinsel’s rescue has happy ending” front page Jan 8 issue. Very well written, Pat. It reads like a very interesting short story emitting to the reader all emotions experienced by everyone involved—including Tinsel. You might consider submitting your true story to Our Canada magazine at Reader’s Digest or to Chicken Soup for the Animal Lover’s Soul books. Thumbs up to Midway resident Miranda Charles for standing your ground on behalf of a frightened bear cub who most likely witnessed her mother’s death. Also for your excellent photos. Thumbs up to your husband James and your father Daryll for the role they played to ensure Tinsel’s safety and well-being. Thumbs up to the powers that be for placing these two RCMP officers in the right place, at the right time, together. What a team! And last, but not least, thumbs up to Dale Tiffenbach for doing all he could for Tinsel, whilst in search of help versus euthanasia. Every youngster deserves a chance at life and if you hadn’t spoken at church Dale, who knows how this story would’ve ended. Amen. Thumbs down to the City of Grand Forks and/or RDKB for not doing anything about people who sit on the downtown sidewalks with an open guitar case. Could that be panhandling? Or maybe there’s isn’t a bylaw for that, maybe I’m wrong. With legs outstretched we have to walk around them. But my biggest gripe is they have two (big) dogs with them. I have a big dog,

too, which I walk on leash all the time downtown, because I live downtown and I pay taxes and I pay all city utilities and I like to shop at the downtown grocery store. But, it’s me, the resident taxpayer that, upon arriving at one end of that Fourth Street block and seeing two dogs sit up and stretch their necks in interest of my approaching dog (on leash), it’s me who crosses to the other side of the street to avoid passing this group with my dog. I take the long way around to get to the grocery store. I shouldn’t have to do that. I’m the resident here. I do it to avoid possible confrontation with the dogs. Dogs are naturally, normally curious of each other and I’ve no idea what might happen if the three dogs met and I don’t want to find out. How can these two people afford dogs, it makes me wonder. But like I said, maybe I’m the one that’s wrong—am I? Thumbs down to the downtown businesses that allow the aforementioned to occupy their store frontage. Does it enhance your business? Thumbs up to Kootenay Boundary Animal Control for helping in the search for our missing dogs, which are still missing. Thumbs up to the family who donates their own Christmas time to make the community Christmas dinner such a tasty event. Would you like to give a thumb up or a thumb down? Email editor@grandforksgazette.ca with Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down as a subject line. We could publish your anonymous submission. Attacks on specific businesses and people will not be published. Editor’s discretion will always be exercised. Please keep it tasteful.

It’s about our food

W

hat might the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society (GFBRAS) do next in its campaign to raise awareness among residents of Boundary Country about the genetic engineering (GE) of plants and animals and their potential as hazards to human health? On Dec. 5, 2013 GFBRAS sponsored a forum on GE foods and human health and, according to Sheila Dobie, president, it was an excellent event. She admitted that there is a lot of stuff to learn. Should the society now intensify its informational campaign to ensure that even more residents become familiar with the facts about GE Rousing foods and the companies that prothe Rabble duce them, or can it say it has done ROY RONAGHAN enough. Now that GFBRAS has called attention to GE foods there is an expectation that they will continue what must be considered good work. No one should feel that the society is causing controversy or doing work that rightfully Perhaps GFBRAS can employ strategies that groups in other jurisdictions are using. A report in The Earth Island Journal dated Dec. 16 describes a successful protest against GMO companies on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands where some 700 people gathered on a day when the weather was described as “crumby.” It was not enough to discourage the crowd of protestors. Hollywood stars, politicians, grassroots activists, professional surfers, and residents from the island of Kauai were among the protesters. What brought this diverse group together? A local historian said, “It’s about our food,” he added. “Its ridiculous to have bioengineering experiments in a closed ecosystem like this island.” Biotech companies grow GM crops on thousands of acres of available farmland on the islands. The biotech giant Monsanto leases over 1,000 acres for its operation. Five other big biotech companies: DuPont, Dow, Agrichemicals, Syngenia and DASE have been expanding their operations and they too now occupy thousands of acres of land that were once sugar cane and pineapple plantations. The companies are now growing and testing transgenic seeds. Hawaii has the largest number of experimental GMO crops in the United States. One of the protesters, Walter Ritte, admitted that a march of a mile was not going to get the results they wanted. What would get results is involvement in electoral politics. The intent would be to elect people who support the non-GMO campaign and who would pass laws to govern GMO corporations A Group called Babes Against Biotech is working to oust legislators who receive funding from biotech companies and it has had success. Should GFBRAS work to place GE foods and human health on the agenda as an election issue? Should the society become involved in electoral politics at local and regional levels in 2014 when mayors, councillors and regional district area directors will be seeking re-election as part of their campaign? There is a lot of information available that can be put into an “easy to use” form for ongoing distribution by GFBRAS. The society might also wish to work with the managers of local grocery stores to encourage a broader selection of foods with non-GMO labels. Only a handful are so-labelled now. The pushback against GM foods should be taken seriously. It is definitely about our food now and the food that our children and grandchildren will consume in the future. What actions might individuals and families take if they have concerns? They can read labels and refuse to buy food products that are not adequately labelled. They can write to and talk with local, regional, provincial and federal politicians on a regular basis. They can attend forums when they are organized. They can do research on the biotech companies and GM foods. If they are so inclined they might attend protest gatherings. Roy Ronaghan is a Christina Lake-based writer.

Obviously I am not happy about council’s decision to install water meters. I urge you to reconsider and get on with upgrading the community’s water system so that the citizens of Grand Forks can prudently enjoy the abundance of potable water that we have been blessed with. Let’s not waste our resources, however, let’s not, in the name of conservation, destroy that which we are trying to preserve. It would be a shame if in a few years, one rounding the Spenser Hill corner and looking down on Grand Forks would have to sadly lament, “how green was my valley.” Frank Triveri, Grand Forks

Taxation

Continued from Page 5

Braying asses and flapping seals on government benches could be comical were they not such a brazen betrayal of the tax-payers who elected them. Societies thrive when caring for citizens (universal health care), schooling its young (universal education), ensuring freedom of movement of people and goods (adequate transportation infrastructure), assuring safe, well-lighted places to live in and ensuring huge, untrammeled spaces - for their own sakes and for all the organisms for which they mean life. These make taxes a civil obligation; understood, levied fairly, paid unstintingly. It is difficult for me to understand avoiding taxes yet demand public services. Such behaviour beggars citizenship. A nation of demeaned citizenship is on the skids; the anthem rings hollow, the flag hangs limp, its institutions compromised, its armed force impotent. Where national pride is portrayed by millionaire goons, the rot is in. Bullying at school is unsurprising. Wealth, not consumption, should be the foundation of taxation. It is ridiculous to import the world’s junk - made at pitiful wages in the planet’s most egregious sweat shops - and apply consumption taxes to it. A flat tax—say 30 per cent—should be applied to all gross salaries, wages and so-called compensations to fully support all public services and, combined with royalties, corporate taxes, levies, fines, duties and reasonable user-pay services, to comfortably fund such costs. The trick is to assiduously prevent laundering. To develop citizenship let’s guarantee free education to certification, diploma and degree levels; in return for such largesse graduates would be required to perform two years of national service. Not military service; service to the nation. A small token for launching them, debt free, into adulthood. Such service to include a month in each year dedicated to their professional developments and another month in each year given to character building adventure courses. A far more meaningful relationship is developed by two young people on each end of a climbing rope than by sexting each other. The balance of the two years dedicated to volunteer services to their country. Taxation and voting thus made meaningful would, I believe, buttress our democracy. Dave Milton, Grand Forks

To misquote an old Spirit of the West song, “There’s none more Scotch than the Scotch abroad, there’s a place in our hearts for the old Scotch.” What that means, is that for many discerning fans of Scotch there is nothing quite like a good Scotch. Fortunately, for local Scotch fans or connoisseurs, the Grand Forks Rotary Club is hosting their sixth annual Scotch Tasting night on Feb. 1 at gallery 2. “It’s not really a big fundraiser, it’s more of a social event,” said Homer Good, chair of the Scotch Tasting committee. “It’s a Scotch tasting event for single malt Scotch, not for real high end but medium to high end Scotch.” Beer and wine will also be available for sale for those ‘less sophisticated’, jokes Good. This year, the event will feature nearly 40 different single malt Scotches. “We go through the list of what we’ve had al-

“If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our staff, they may submit a notice of complaint (appeal) by Jan. 31, for an independent review by a property assessment review panel,” said Wall. The panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and meet between Feb. 1 and March 15 to hear formal complaints. The assessment office servicing Grand Forks is located at 300-1631 Dickson Avenue in Kelowna. During the month of January, office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. Property owners can contact BC Assessment toll-free at 1-866-valueBC (1-866-825-8322) or online by clicking “connect” at www.bcassessment.ca.

ready and see what new Scotches we can bring in,” said Good. “Every year we try to bring in a good selection of different Scotches.” Some of the highlights of this year’s Scotch selections are 12-year-old Balvene, 17-year-old Glenfarcias, 16-year-old Scapa and Clynelish, distiller’s edition. Good said the difference between single malt Scotches and other Scotches such as blended, is that the barley used is making the Scotch comes from the same location. He adds that Scotches are well known for their taste, which varies depending on the price and make. “You get a $200 bottle of Scotch and it’ll be smooth as heck,” said Good. “You go down to a $20 bottle of bar scotch and it’ll give you a pretty good ride going down. There’s quite a distinctive difference.” Tickets are $30 and include five taster glasses. There will also be snacks available. Tickets are available at Sears as well as gallery 2. The event goes from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.

ing lists of 2014’s top 100 most valuable residential properties across the province. Across the rest of B.C., the biggest increases were in the Northwest and Peace River regions, where total residential value rose about 10 per cent as natural gas and other industrial development picked up speed. The value of all property in B.C. rose 1.27 per cent, despite declines in most regions for farm, recreational and managed forest land. In the Lower Mainland, most residential values showed modest increases, from almost flat on the North Shore to 1.61 per cent in Vancouver, 0.68 in North Fraser, 1.98 per cent in Surrey-White Rock and 1.53 per cent in the Fraser Valley. Richmond-Delta recorded the only decline in the region, with residential total value down 0.15 per cent. In Southern Vancouver Island, total residential property value fell 2.69 per cent,

with similar decreases for recreational and farm property. Business property is up 3.89, and major industrial property jumped 17.45 per cent. Central Vancouver Island residential property slipped 1.31 per cent, with similar decreases in industrial, recreational and farm property and a 2.67 per cent rise in business property.

“It was stated on the RDKB website that they were in compliance,” said Stewart. “Because the RDKB did not do what they said they were doing, everyone that came here to go swimming at that community centre, or skating, or curling, has been under the impression that we are in compliance and these people are properly vetted and it’s a safe place for their children to go. It’s simply not the case.” Stewart has spoken in person and by email to several GFREC and RDKB staff members, as well as Mayor Brian Taylor and the CUPE union president, but was clearly not satisfied. “It’s been suggested by the lifeguards and the staff that criminal record checks were expected and were important but it’s been completely stonewalled by the administration,” said Stewart. “(They) said the union has refused to do it. I called the union and they started off being stymied by what I said and why anyone would blame the union.” The RDKB (Regional District of the Kootenay Boundary, which operates the Grand Forks Recreation Centre) enacted a criminal record check policy on Nov. 24, 2011 that states that the RDKB requires criminal record checks for all prospective candidates applying for positions designated as sensitive positions by the RDKB. “We have a policy that calls for criminal record checks for employees for when they’re hired or when they move into a job where they will deal with children or vulnerable adults,” said John MacLean, chief administrative officer for the RDKB. When it comes to employees who were hired before the policy was enacted, MacLean said they are working on it. “We have to work with the union on that,” he said. “We have to work it through. It’s our desire to have the policy apply to everyone. That’s what we’re working towards.” MacLean said that before Stewart contacted the RDKB, it hadn’t been brought up before. “The policy we have is relatively new,” said MacLean.“We put it in place a couple of years ago. But it had never been raised as an issue. The policy was in place when he raised it.”

Sheila Dobie, president of the Grand Forks and Boundary Agricultural Society, discusses food security at the forum on Saturday at the senior’s centre.

Ideas spring into action in food forum CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

It was another good turnout of about 30 enthusiastic individuals for the second Grand Forks and Boundary Agricultural Society (GFBRAS) food forum, titled Ideas into Action: The future of OUR food in the Boundary, on Saturday at the Senior’s Centre. Unfortunately, both keynote speakers were unable to attend due to poor weather and illness. Despite that, organizer Sheila Dobie, president of GFBRAS, said it was a very productive meeting. “It was excellent, I thought,”

she said. “Neither of our speakers was able to attend, but this was able to give us a lot more to get our working group sessions done. I think we received a lot of excellent input and ownership.” Dobie added that they were able to sign up people for various projects and identify which projects people were excited about and wanted to see happen. “We’ve got some good marketing strategies coming up,” she said. “Things like a web-based directory. We’ve got a fundraising event we’re hoping to get involved in. We’ve got ideas around

integrating the Boundary Country label with the Boundary Country Grown label that will assist us in identifying local products.” Among the other projects identified were storage infrastructure and education initiatives. “There’s a large, new edible community garden-type project,” she said. “There was somebody in the room that has already given it some legs. They’ve had some conversations with some land-owners. We’ve got some real specifics that people got really excited about that we can start moving forward on.”

Enjoy the Raptors’ run while it lasts

B

eing a Toronto Raptors fan is usually a thankless job. The team hasn’t had a winning record, or made the playoffs since real raptors roamed the earth. Or at least it seems that way. Every star player has left the team for greener pastures down south from Tracy McGrady to Vince Carter to Chris Bosh. As soon as they became great players they left for more money and a greater chance at championships. This year, it looked like perhaps the Raptors would get a chance to turn around the franchise once and for all. All they had to do was lose some games, win the draft lottery and pick up one of the four of five great prospects that will be available. One of those college stars expected to go high in next year’s draft is one Andrew Wiggins of Kansas University. Wiggins, also known as Maple Jordan, is being hailed as the best Canadian player ever. Even better than Steve Nash, who was pretty unheralded coming out of Santa Clara University and definitely unheralded coming out of Victoria. Wiggins is definitely more polished than last year’s number one pick Anthony Bennett, another Canadian. Bennett has had a disappointing rookie year with Cleveland after be-

On the Ball Craig Lindsay ing selected first overall out of UNLV. But Wiggins is much more athletic and talented and would certainly help Toronto right out of the gate. TSN is already airing promos saying that they are broadcasting every Kansas game. Could you imagine having a Toronto native leading the team? But, of course, the Raptors can’t even lose properly. Canada’s only NBA franchise is actually playing some very good basketball. The team has won seven of 10 games since trading high profile winger Rudy Gay to Sacramento. Without Gay, the Raps lack that star player, but have plenty of young talent who are willing to work hard and move the ball around looking for open shots. Youngsters DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valancuinas, in particular, are stepping into prominent roles and are looking like future stars. Role players like Amir Johnson and Tyler Hansborough are doing the dirty work near the basket. Guards Kyle Lowry and Grevis Vasquez are doing a good job running the team

from the point and facilitating the offence. Head coach Dwayne Casey has everybody on the same page. General manager Masai Ujari has assembled some good pieces that fit together and doesn’t cost the team an arm and leg. Right now, the Raptors are at .500 and are coming off a recent exciting win on the road over league leading Indiana. We’ll see if they can continue that pace and make the playoffs where anything can happen. I definitely think the fans deserve it. Tanking might be effective, if everything falls into place. But the think is—there are no guarantees. Remember the last time the Raptors drafted high? They took Andrea Bargnani first overall. How did that work out? Not to mention that even if they managed to grab a future star like Wiggins or Duke’s Jabari Parker, there’s no guarantee they wouldn’t bolt after three or four years like Carter or Bosh. So I say enjoy the Raptors’ run while it lasts. If nothing else, it’s great to watch a team move the ball and actually look for the best shot, rather than have isolations for Gay or whoever. Craig Lindsay is a reporter with the Grand Forks Gazette.

A day of family fun in February CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

dc chambers

As a relatively new holiday in B.C., Family Day has already become quite popular. Family Day, which happens on Monday, Feb. 10 this year, is in its second year in this province and offers a long weekend break during the long stretch of winter in between Christmas holiday and Easter. The City of Grand Forks is getting into the spirit with its first annual Family Fun Day event. Originally intended for one day only, the interest from the community prompted the city to have it throughout the weekend. “We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from our sponsors who have kind of put their heads together and wanted to see a weekend affair,” said Sarah Winton, deputy corporate secretary for Grand Forks. “So we’ve de-

cided to include the whole weekend.” The event kicks off Saturday at 11 a.m. with a speech from Mayor Brian Taylor followed by a road hockey game featuring the Border Bruins. “On Saturday, Feb. 8, Market Ave. will be closed,” said Winton. “We’ll have an opening ceremony with a hockey game for everyone in the community to come out and participate in.” Winton said they will provide some sticks, but it would be great if people brought their own sticks. “Rotary will be down there selling kettle corn,” she added. “There will be hot chocolate and hot dogs; the fire department will be there; Success By 6 will be there. In the afternoon, we are planning on having the GEM Theatre play a movie. Also, bowling will be available free of charge.” There will also be music, food and lots

of fun. The Christina Lake Golf Course will also be setting up winter golf on Market Street for budding chippers. “It’ll be a lot of fun,” said Winton. “From 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Market Avenue will be closed and all the activities will run at the same time.” Winton says that the event is important to council, which proposed the idea and came up with the original funding. “I think it’s important to council that it be inclusive and not exclusive,” she said. “The definition of family is huge. Our family is also our community and that is very important. Everyone is invited to come down.” As for the rest of the weekend, The Phoenix Mountain Ski Hill will be having free skiing on both Sunday and Monday, Feb. 9 and 10. There will also be free hot dogs available. On Monday, Grand Forks Recreation Cen-

tre will be hosting some events. At noon, they will be having outdoor fun at Dick Bartlett Park hosted by Pines Bible Camp. The pool will have a free swim from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and the arena will have free public skating from 1:45 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. “There will be a passport book that will be given to students across the district,” said Winton. “You can collect stamps and then you can drop your passport off at the rec centre on Monday and enter a draw to win a Family Day package with great prizes.” With Family Day in only its second year in B.C., council wanted to get right on the opportunity to create an event for families to be able to get together and have fun together. “The bottom line is we want to make sure we pay attention to young people and families,” said Mayor Brian Taylor.

New Year ... New You? This Week in Sports

“Following the gluttonous holidays, people are looking to get their lives on track” ELENA PLOTNIKOFF Setting goals is an important first step in getting where you want to go in life. The focused ambition on a future condition for your life helps you achieve direction. The most popular time to do this is the New Year. Following the gluttonous holidays, people are looking to get their lives on track after a time of relaxing and reflecting. Making resolutions allows you to evaluate what you care about, what you want to focus on, what you want your life to be and celebrate the accomplishments that you achieve. Goals are about being the best version of you possible ... one that you can be happy with. It is about finding peace with the things that you cannot change and harnessing the motivation to deal with the things that you have control over. This is a process that should not just be exclusive to the New Year. By keeping track of the things that you accomplish, even the smallest of victories, you can

The Junior Boys and Senior Boys basketball teams hosted two games against J. L. Crowe at GFSS on Wednesday, January 8th. The Junior Boys played first, working hard but not quite defeating Crowe. It was clear the boys put in a great amount of effort and the scoreboard did not do their attempt justice. They were followed by the Senior Boys who played an impressive game despite not having their full team to work with. The boys demonstrated the skills they have worked hard to earn with seemingly effortless shots and an admirable amount of speed. Although they played hard, the Senior Boys were not able to come out on top against Crowe and

finished with a 58-41 loss. The Junior Boys and Junior Girls will be heading to Osoyoos on Friday, January 17th for tournaments at Osoyoos Secondary School and will also play games against Stanley Humphries on Tuesday, January 21st. On this Tuesday, the Grade 8 Boys, Junior Boys, and Senior Boys will travel to Castlegar to play games at SHSS. The Grade 8 Girls and Junior Girls will be hosting their games against Stanley Humphries at GFSS on the 21st and we encourage you to come out and support our Wolves! The Grade 8 Girls will begin their game at 4:00pm, followed by the Junior Girls at 5:30pm. Good luck, Wolves!

What Would We Rate? “The

environment of a school plays such a huge part the educational experience of it’s students”

SIMONE GENTRY The end of our first semester at GFSS is coming up quickly and everyone’s busy getting ready for exams, trying to get that A+! As students we’re “judged” - I mean, graded on our skills, work habits, participation, performance, attendance, etc… the list goes on. But what if we were to turn it around; what would be taken into consideration when grading our school from the perspective of its students? A large percentage of this mark would obviously be based on course offerings and availability, as well as staff members. While these are key points, they are also not the pivotal factors in the eyes of students. The environment of a school plays such a huge part the educational experience of its students. There is no question that the aesthetics of a school play an important role in defining the mood and productivity level. When entering GFSS you’re met by an impressive, freshly painted hall. Sadly, this does not continue past the office; grey and black give way to the older beige tones of days gone by and the hallways take on a gloomier note as you delve deeper. It is interesting

Imagine students being given the opportunity to give the school a Report Card ... an objective evaluation based on student opinion about the strong points as well as the failings of the school. If given the opportunity, what would the criteria for evaluation end up being? to note that much of the school has not even seen a fresh coat of paint in close to twenty years. As a student, somewhere quiet to relax and study is also vital. Yes, we do have the DLC at GFSS, and that’s great but it’s crammed with kids getting help and doing online courses every block and every day. Since the library has been downsized and relocated, the DLC becomes the only option. Another consideration in “grading” our school might be to examine our student’s access to technology and other resources.

Profile of the Week Do students have free access to the computers, lap tops, etc. when needed? Can students access a computer before classes, during lunch, or after school? At the end of the day, I guess what’s important is that the students play an active role in providing feedback concerning how the school meets our needs. If we don’t speak up who will? In all fairness, I have noticed an effort by our administrators to involve students in the feedback process. So, I suppose the question becomes … “Pass” or “Fail”?

Award-winning film on racism raises consciousness LARRY HUDEMA

For the Grand Forks Gazette

What is that glow emanating from the furnace of humanity? Could it be a powerful desire to enrich civilization through compassion; an earnest attempt at stemming the tide of increasing global disparity; or a passionate striving toward collective enlightenment? Nope. I’m afraid it is none of the above. Sigh. Unfortunately, it is (still) the incessantly undying embers of racism, ethnic/cultural ignorance, and depravity. What a waste. Oscar Grant III, a 22-year-old black man, no stranger to the American penal system, decided he was going to turn his life around. On the morning of Dec. 31, 2008 he awoke determined to be a better son to his mother, Wanda, whose birthday, incidentally, falls on New Year’s Eve; be a better partner to his girlfriend, Sophina, with whom he had not been particularly honest; and be a better father to their

four-year-old daughter, Tatiana. Grant was, however, a man with complex entanglements and was fatally sucked in to that vortex of guilt by default. Early New Year’s Day 2009 Grant was shot by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police officer, Johannes Mehserle at the Fruitvale transit station in Oakland California. The police were responding to reports of a fight and Mehserle allegedly reaching for his taser, grabbed his gun instead, and shot the subdued Grant in the back. Grant later died of his wound. It is not too much of a stretch to view the incident, video recorded by several witnesses as an execution. The incident and the subsequent trial-of-sorts shook the Bay area to the core. On Tuesday, Jan. 28 Spotlight Films will be showing Fruitvale Station, a film written and directed by 27-year-old Ryan Coogler (Creed, Locks). Michael B. Jordan (Hotel Noir, and TV’s Parenthood, Bones and The Wire) turns in a stellar performance as Oscar; Melonie Diaz

(You Me and the Circus, and TV’s Person of Interest) Sophina; Octavia Spencer ( Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, TV’s Person of Interest) Wanda; and Tatiana is played by Ariana Neal (the TV movie Christmas on the Bayou). This flick has won and been nominated for buckets full of awards, 28 wins and 24 nominations, including: Boston Film Critics Award for best new filmmaker for Coogler; Avenir Prize, Cannes; Sundance, Audience Award and Grand Jury, the list goes on. Every movie has a gaffe or two. See if you can catch the one when Oscar is talking to his mother while in prison New Year’s Eve 2007. Fruitvale Station will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at the GEM Theatre. This contender for The Big Prize, by the way, was made for less than $1million. Thanks to IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, the Weinstein Co., Wikipedia, Bill Goodykoontz of the Arizona Republic, Spotlight Films sponsors and patrons and Maureen and Marius Paquet of the GEM Theatre.

SILVER KETTLE

Abandoning Paradise: Glenn Clark and Peter Corbett, opens this weekend at gallery 2.

Attempting to sway public opinion SUBMITTED

For the Grand Forks Gazette

Abandoning Paradise is as much about the role of artists and function of art in relation to political and environmental concerns as it is about the act of recording the landscape. Penticton artist Glenn Clark and Peter Corbett of Winlaw traveled together over the route for the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline painting as they went. The resulting exhibition of paintings by Clark and Corbett raises questions regarding ac-

fill

tivism and resistance verses the picturesque in art. “Representational paintings that faithfully document beauty may have value as such, and they can also be powerful political tools. “Yet these landscape paintings, and this current project, work on another level as well. “There is a conceptual undercurrent of making paintings in a linear fashion that follows the path of the proposed pipeline, an interest in the symbolism of preparing the path for potential pipeline construction workers with paintings about

the beauty they would be about to desecrate. “Combined with such large group actions and the resulting major magazine and internet exposure, projects such as Abandoning Paradise and its four seasonal painting trips may go a long way towards swaying public opinion.” (Glenn Clark, Peter Corbett artists’ statement) There will be an opening reception at gallery 2 on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 1-3 p.m. The artists will be present and available to discuss their work. All are welcome to attend.

City hires new manager of operations The City of Grand Forks announced they have hired Roger Huston, AScT, as the city’s new manager of operations. Huston brings 20 years of public works experience with him, including 17 of those in a senior management role. He is leaving his position as director of operations for Lumby to come to Grand Forks. “I am looking forward to moving to the Grand Forks community and continuing my career as the new manager of operations for the City of Grand Forks! This is a beautiful area with exciting potential that I want to be a part of,” said Huston. Roger and his wife will be making their home in Grand Forks and will start his new position on Feb. 3. “We’re replacing a position where the person retired,” Doug Allin, city administrative officer, told the Gazette. “The job is operations so it includes outside staff public works, it includes the water department, it includes the sewer department, the waste water department, the electrical department, and the airport.”

Boundary trails agreement moving forward The Boundary Trails Agreement is moving forward with a trail marking and signage project for a 134-square kilometre area between Grand Forks and Christina Lake. This is an initiative started by the Grand Forks ATV Club to create safe trails for the various users and provide responsible access to this area in a manner where all stakeholders have shared use and best protect the natural habitat. The second meeting for all to attend will be on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 7 p.m. at Selkirk Collage, room eight. At this time the working proposal will be available for all groups to comment on and add to. Safety for the environment, wildlife and users is foremost in the project. Many sensitive areas and species have been identified and all efforts to promote and maintain these areas will be pursued as the project moves forward. “This is your back yard, come out and help make some informed decisions so we can all share this wonderful recreation area,” read an ATV club press release. Getting out and enjoying nature, safely and responsible use of the many trails in this area is one of the main goals of this project.

Chatting about the yellowbreasted chat SUBMITTED

For the Grand Forks Gazette

Marlene Machmer, wildlife biologist and ecologist, will give a talk on the yellow-breasted chat, a local endangered warbler species, on Monday, Jan. 27 to the West Kootenay Naturalists. Machmer has 25 years of broad-based experience in environmental impact, land and biodiversity management, ecosystem restoration, monitoring and stewardship in B.C. She founded and has been the principal biologist at Pandion Ecological Research Ltd., based in Nelson, since 1990. Marlene has conducted a variety of research and applied projects, focusing on wildlife such as great blue heron, harlequin duck, osprey, bald eagle, Northern gosshawk and various woodpecker and bat species. She continues to be involved in the inventory and recovery action planning for the local species at risk, and is a member of the Provincial Yellow-breasted Chat Recovery Team and the Pacific Northwest Heron Working Group. Marlene’s presentation will deal with the ecology and management of the small southeastern population of chats confirmed breeding near Waneta in 2004. She will provide an update on the status of this population and highlight some challenges it faces as a result of encroaching development and other stressors. The free talk will be in room 16 (7:30 p.m.) on the Silver King Campus in Nelson. For more information, contact Pamella Wik at 250-362-7424.

The 2013 West Boundary bird count was enjoyed by 30 participants who sighted 54 species including 1,989 individuals, while last year 60 species with 2,649 individuals were counted. This year’s count is average for both number of species and number of individuals. The 2006 count, which involved 60 species and 3,893 individuals, is the highest count on record. The West Boundary count area includes all of the West Boundary starting from and including Eholt. Ravens topped the count this year with 294 birds sighted. California quail were second with 226; last year they were third with 189. Black capped chickadees took third place this year with 191 being sighted while Mountain chickadees with 118 individuals were fourth. Yeah for the chickadees as they are consistently near the top of the list. Unusual sightings included five robins, one ferruginous hawk, one northern saw-whet owl and two white-winged scoters. No ring-necked pheasants have been observed for the last four years. For many years they were regular residents at

Course clear for Dogsled Classics Grand Forks Gazette

Preparation for the Boundary Dogsled Classics is shifting into high gear up at Jewel Lake as the Jan. 25-26 race date approaches. Jewel Lake residents John Jacob and Rick Matsalla have been helping race organizer, Grand Forks veterinarian Ruth Sims, by packing the 13 miles of race trails. “The trails appear to be in great condition,” Sims said. “We have gone over the entire course several times and except for a couple of tight corners that may need widening to make sure the dogs can maintain speed through them, everything is well packed.” Sims said that the startfinish line will be in a clearing just off the Jewel Lake RoadEholt Road junction. “It is a nice location, with easy access for both spectators and mushers with their teams. There is lots of parking as well.” Sims said that there will be a concession stand selling hamburgers, hot dogs, hot drinks and souvenirs. “The concession will be

under cover—we bought a portable garage just for the event—so we will be protected no matter what the weather is on that weekend.” Sims doubles as the official veterinarian for the event, making sure that the dogs are well looked after. “No one loves their dogs more than the mushers,” Sims said. “The dogs love to run and these short courses allow them to really fly. “The mushers are attuned to any subtle changes in their dogs’ moods or gaits and pay close attention to anybody in the team that may seem a little off. “A lot of these teams travel extensively during the racing season, so they are all vetchecked frequently and up to date with vaccinations. In fact many of these dogs likely get physical checkups more frequently than the average pet dog.” For the race weekend time schedule and more information, including Google Earth maps of the three courses, see the event website at www. boundarydogsledclassics. com.

GFSS player Max Nicolson tries to rip the ball from the J.L. Crowe defender during the third quarter of the team’s game on Jan. 8 in Grand Forks.

Wolves senior boys clipped at home by Hawks CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Outsized and outmanned, the Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) Wolves senior boys team gave a valiant effort but fell to J.L. Crowe from Trail. With several forwards topping 6’2” and a long bench, the Hawks built up a big lead and kept the pressure on the Wolves for the whole game. GFSS coach Michael Wirischagin said the boys gave up too many good looks from the three point line. “We were down to seven players from our typical eight,” said Wirischagin. “And then one of our regular starters, James Gow, who hurt his ankle at the Mt. Sentinel Tournament, re-hurt his ankle. So we were missing two of our primary ballhandlers (Gow and Isiah McDonald). So that made running our offence more difficult. On defence, it made our 2-3 zone more difficult. They scored most of their points against our 2-3. When we switched to man (defence) it worked a lot better.” Wirischagin said the Hawks don’t run a set offence but have some good outside shooters and good athletes. “They just pass the ball around

the perimeter and put up threes,” he said. “In the first quarter, I think they put up around 19 points. It was the lack of putting pressure on their three point shooters even though we knew they were going to shoot. Missing the top two of our 2-3 make it really tough to put pressure on them.” Wirischagin said switching to a hard man-to-man defence gave the Wolves a boost and allowed the team to cut the Trail lead to 15 in the third quarter. “That was our chance to get back in the game,” he said. “But then we missed a lot of important free throws. I think we shot seven of 20 from the three point line. If we picked up 10 more of those, it’s a single digit game.” Wirischagin said the team needs to be more aware of what’s going on on defence and where they’re getting beat. “We need to be able to do the things necessary to come back and win,” he said. “We saw them making threes but didn’t get out and pressure them. We were making sloppy passes. It’s the fundamental things that come back and bite you in the rear.” The Wolves are in action next on Jan. 21 when the team travels to Stanley Humphries Secondary School in Castlegar.

The Grand Forks Secondary School junior girls basketball Wolves won two of four games on the weekend at their home tournament to take third place out of fourth. The team opened up with a convincing 49-8 win over Boundary Central (Midway) led by 10 points each from Alyssa Makortoff and Veronica Bolton. Next up, the Wolves played Mount Sentinel from South Slocan. The Wolves, coached by former SFU star Tekki BrownHyrniw, shredded the GFSS press but struggled on the boards as the Wolves played aggressively. GFSS held a one point lead at halftime, 17-16, but the second half went back and forth. A late run put Mt. Sentinel up by three, but the Wolves scored to cut the lead to one. The home team had a chance to win at the end, but were unable to convert. The final score was Mt. Sentinel 30, GFSS 28. Top scorer for GFSS was Makortoff with six points. Sian Neilson led MSSS with 11 points. “It was a strong team we played but we stepped up,” said Grade 10 point guard Chloe Skerritt. “We stayed positive throughout and worked together. It was pretty stressful being so close but it was fun.” In their final round-robin game, Grand Forks Secondary took on a tall team from South Okanagan Secondary in Oliver. “The Hornets ran a stingy 2-3 zone defence which gave us a lot of trouble,” said coach Craig Lindsay. “We hadn’t seen a zone before and haven’t practice much against one. But that’s what tournament are for, to see what you need to work on.” “We now know what we need to do against a zone,” added Skerritt. “It was good practice. We know what plays work and what to do to get open.” Oliver pushed out to a quick 12-4 lead on their way to a solid 33-20 victory led by 10 points from Sierra Calendar. Riley Steinback led the Wolves with six points. In the bronze medal game, GFSS played Midway once more, winning this time by 45-14. Keyra Stooshnoff led the Wolves with 12 points, while Kristen Delgado added eight. “We did a much better job in our last game of running our offence and getting the ball to our posts,” said Lindsay. “All in all, it was a good weekend for us. All the players helped out and contributed and improved over the four games.” Stooshnoff, a Grade 10 forward, agreed with her coach. “I think we played well,” she said. “We had a lot of good passes and we worked as a team. We need to work on our boxing out and our rebounding.” Next up, GFSS plays J.L. Crowe at home on Thursday before heading to Osoyoos for a tournament there on the weekend. “It’s our big road tournament, so it should be a lot of fun,” said Lindsay. “Plus, we’ll get a chance to play some different teams and try some new things out on the floor.”

BV then scored three unanswered goals to take a commanding 3-1 lead with goals from Jacob Boyczuk, and veterans Archie McKinnon and Ryan Edwards. Goals from Jackson Purvis and Con-

nor Gross tied the score up at 3-3 midway through the second stanza. But a late goal from Andrew Clark with six minutes left in the second gave the Nitehawks a 4-3 lead and momentum going into the third period. Goals from Jeremy Luccini and a second from Boyczuk put the game away for BV, who outshot Grand Forks 52-29. The Border Bruins fared much better on Friday in Midway, as they beat Princeton 7-5 at Boundary Expo Arena, led by five points from high-escoring forward Jackson Purvis. Purvis and Mitch Pearson gave the Border Bears a 2-0 lead early in the first period, but Princeton fought back with

three straight to go up 3-2 after one. Coleton Dawson tied the score early in the first period for GF. Princeton went back up by one with Tyler Ehlers goal at 11:07 of the second period.

A man was coming out of a new barber shop which he decided to try out. He met his friend and his friend asked him if the barber did a good job. He replied, “The haircut looks fine but I didn’t like the four-letter words he used when cutting my hair.” “What did he say?” his friend asked? “Oops!” the man replied.

But it’s really not that hard once you make up your mind and take the first step. Learning to dance is a lifechanging activity. We could write a book about the things dance can do for you, but here are just a few benefits of learning to dance. • Improved health and exercise—You’re learning to move your body in new ways and burning calories without ever thinking about it. • Reduced stress—In our hustle and bustle world, we all need a break. Dance also helps you forget about your cares and concerns for a little while and gives you a chance to focus on learning a new skill. • Confidence—The sense of achievement while building confidence to continue to learn other types of dance styles in the future. • Social—Through dance, you increase social interaction

Bud Hallstrom hallstrom

Regarding Bud Hallstrom’s obituary in last weeks’ edition of the Boundary Creek Times and Grand Forks Gazette. Unfortunately, Norman and Delle’s children were not mentioned. The family would like to correct this unfortunate omission. It should have read:

Delle (Norman) Hoffman, children Kerri (Ian) Trip and Darren (Tracey) Hoffman, great niece and nephews Jessica and Ryan Trip and Daniel Hoffman.

Thank You hallstrom

The Hallstrom and Hoffman families would like to extend their sincere thank you to all the friends that made this very, very difficult time bearable. The kind words, hugs, phone calls, food and cards were deeply appreciated. In addition, we would like to thank the countless individuals that ran errands, assisted in the service and worked in the background doing the many numerous tasks that made Bud’s celebration of life something he would be very proud of. Although there are certainly some rough roads ahead, this amazing support certainly accelerated our families healing process. Again, thank you and our families wish each and everyone of you a happy and prosperous 2014. Donations can still be made to the Bud Hallstrom Memorable Fund at the Heritage Credit Union in Greenwood.

Sarah Lee Dutoff

It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of Sarah on December 23 2013. On September 13, 1965, Sarah was born into a loving family. She grew up in Grand Forks and graduated high school here. She later moved to Calgary to complete her formal education as a secretary with a lightning speed typing speed of 110 wpm! Sarah worked for many years with Arthur Anderson Accounting and later with the Alberta Stock Exchange which became the TSX Venture Exchange. Sarah had a great sense of humour and a loving approach to life, family and friends, notwithstanding the personal health challenges she experienced throughout her life. Sarah’s greatest joys were family, friends and reading. Each of her friends shared a unique and special bond with her. We will truly miss her beautiful smile and her kind and generous heart. Sarah is survived by her parents Alec and Doris Dutoff of Grand Forks, her sister Bev and family in Ontario including Sarah’s much loved nieces Alison and Holly. Sarah will also be missed by her grandmother Vera, aunts, uncles and cousins and friends. A Celebration of Sarah Dutoff’s life was held at Mountain View Memorial Gardens in Calgary. We will plan something in Grand Forks at a later date.

Bruins take first in home tourney SUBMITTED

To the Grand Forks Gazette

The Grand Forks Bruins midget house hockey team had their home tournament this past weekend and had yet again a successful tournament. There were only a total of four teams, but the Grand Forks

team worked hard and won the first place trophy. The first game on Friday was played against Summerland where Grand Forks lost 2-0. Saturday morning they played West Kelowna and won 8-1. In the afternoon Grand Forks lost to Coeur d’Alene 3-2. Sunday morning went

into the semi-finals where they won against Summerland 10-1, which then put them into the finals in a back-to-back game where they won against Coeur d’Alene in a close game of 3-2. The Grand Forks midget team may have a short bench, but they play with a lot of heart and determination.
