Dog Sled Classics truly classic PAT KELLY

Boundary Creek Times Reporter

With nearly $10,000 in prize payout the inaugural running of the Boundary Dog Sled Classics Sprint Westbridge, BC Races were run last weekend on the frozen surface of Jewel Lake. The race was organized by the Boundary Dog Sled Association. A last minute decision before the first race on Saturday saw the bush trail scrapped and volunteers hustling to put in a new trail on the lake. There were 17 teams registered, but only 15 made Located in Westbridge and it onto the four-kilometre trail. There were five classproud to service the area es of race including a two-dog skijoring race. Skijor1-888-299-0592 ing is where the dogs pull a person on skis rather 1-250-446-6808 than pulling a sled. ����������������������� ��������������������������������������� The Race Marshal was David Smallwood from Air Ronge in Nothern Saskatchewan. Twelve mushers in all went home with some money. Cheryl Sheppard from Canmore, Alberta took home the most cash—taking second place in the 0 24543 16681 8 three-dog and the six-dog open class. She also took

third in the four-dog open. She ran only four dogs in the six-dog race and three in the three-dog race. A good showing for Sheppard who is in her first year of racing. She has worked as a sled dog guide for Howling Dog Tours for the past four years. The Alaskan husky is the breed to use in these short sprint races. There was over 175 years of experience with these dogs spread among these 12 mushers who finished in the money. A quick time of 8:18 in the three-dog open class was recorded by Raiijo Easterbrook from Invermere —nearly four minutes faster than Sheppard, who came in second in the class. Easterbrook is a recreational musher with five years experience. He is going to attempt the Percy 100 Mile Skijor race in Dawson City, Yukon in March. There was a concession and lots of time to get close to both mushers and dogs during the two-day event.

GREENWOOD COUNCIL REPORT

For the Sessions talks U.S. tax record In our January 23, 2014 issue of the Boundary Creek Times we misspelled a name in our BCSS grad transitions series. We must apologize to Julia Bauxmann for our error.

Alex Atamanenko, MP BC Southern Interior, is sponsoring a public tax information session for Canadians considered to be “U.S. persons.” A panel of immigration and cross-border tax experts will address issues related to U.S. tax and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The Canadian government is in negotiations with the Americans on an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) to impose U. S. tax legislation (FATCA) on Canadian financial institutions. The agreement may require Canadian banks and other financial institutions to disclose information on accounts held by “U.S. persons” to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Negotiations are being conducted in secret and raise concerns that the IGA could potentially violate Canadian privacy laws. Furthermore, the misinformation and secrecy around FATCA is causing a great deal of public anxiety and anger. The session is free and will be held Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Fireside Conference Centre, 1810 8th Avenue, Castlegar.

Canada Post looks to cut Canada Post is proposing to cut Saturday service at the Greenwood Post office. News of the plan started hitting the streets in Greenwood a week ago, shortly after the Times went to press with the front page story of the retirement of longtime postmaster Leona Baird. Canada Post is using the opportunity of this personnel shuffle to implement local cutbacks. On Wednesday, Jan. 22 the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA)—the union which represents Canada Post employees in rural Canada—mailed a flyer to all Greenwood boxholders urging them to write to Canada Post, copying MP Alex Atamanenko and the union. “In some communities, Saturday is

the only day available for some to do their postal business,” said the union’s flyer. “We need to know if this is true for Greenwood.” The post office counter is currently open from 9 to noon on Saturday. Access to the mail boxes is available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. On Tuesday Eugene Knapik, Manager Media relations for Canada Post, confirmed that the Crown Corporation is considering closing the Greenwood post office on Saturdays. “We will be consulting with our employee association on this proposal soon and we will communicate further with the community once we have had that consultation.” Knapik said letter mail volumes are declining and the post office needs to make

smart choices to maintain local service without becoming a burden on taxpayers. “Our goal is to serve the people in your community when they use the post office most. Our review has determined a very small number of Saturday customers.” Greenwood resident Ron Henschel posted a reply he received from Atamanenko quoting Jenny Van Alstyne, Canada Post Governmental Affairs staffer for the Pacific region. “She told us that the proposal was to discontinue Saturday service in Greenwood (now 9 to noon) and instead stay open later on Thursdays.” Knapik said that Canada Post has no plans for consultation with the community through either a public meeting or contact with local government.

Bill tosses treaty The National Farmers Union (NFU - www.nfu.ca ) calls Bill C-18 a Corporate Agri-business Promotion Act. The official title of the act is the Agricultural Growth Act omnibus bill. It amends several federal agricultural laws. The legislation was introduced in Parliament on Dec. 9, 2013. If passed, it will give multi-national agribusiness much more money, power and control while increasing farmers’ costs and reducing farmers’ autonomy and Canadian sovereignty. Instead the NFU calls for a new Seed Act for Farmers in which Canada recognizes the inherent rights of farmers— derived from thousands of years of custom and tradition—to save, reuse, select, exchange, and sell seeds. Current and proposed restrictions on farmers’ traditional practices, whether from commercial contracts, identity preservation systems, or legislation— criminalize these ancient practices and harm farmers, citizens, and society in general. The NFU is pushing Parliament to refrain from making any changes to the  Seeds Act  or to the  Plant Breeders’ Rights Act that would further restrict farmers’ rights or add to farmers’ costs. They also are calling upon Ottawa to enshrine in legislation the inalienable rights of farmers and other Canadians to save, reuse, select, exchange, and sell seeds. In 2002 Canada ratified the United Nations International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. As a signatory to this treaty, Canada: • recognizes the enormous contribution that the local and indigenous communities and farmers have made and will continue to make for the conservation and development of plant genetic resources which constitute the basis of food and agriculture production throughout the world. • agrees not to limit any rights that farmers have to save, use, exchange and sell farm-saved seed/propagating material, subject to national law and as appropriate. Bill C-18 will toss this treaty aside and further turn our food supply over to agribusiness.

Sheila Dobie, president of Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society, spoke to a packed house at the Midway Seniors Centre on Saturday.

Food topic of forum

Matching local food to local customers was the theme as more than 30 people came out to a day-long session on food security last Saturday in the Midway Senior’s Centre. The sessions gave residents an overview of what has been done in the Boundary over the past few years. It was sponsored by the West Boundary Sustainable Foods and Resources Society (FAR), a society formed last year by those behind the local food-sharing initiative. Vivien Browne welcomed everyone on behalf of FAR. She explained that the group is a nonprofit society that emerged from work done over the past three years in the West Boundary by the group known as Local Food Sharing. Browne said that members of the food sharing group agreed unanimously in February 2013 to go ahead with the food society so that they could address some things that they couldn’t do under the food sharing mandate—such as seed saving, education about gardening, food preservation and overall food literacy. Browne said the group has applied for a New Horizons for Seniors grant that will fund workshops. These sessions will be videotaped so that a collection of information can be available at the public library. Workshop ideas relating to food security include composting, soil prep, growing methods, choosing the right seeds, starting your own breeding plants, transplanting, organic pest controls, and much more. Preserving the knowledge of the local experts in the area is the way she thinks of it. Membership in FAR has been kept at $5 to encourage as many people to get involved as possible. For more information contact Browne at 250-528-7433. She also mentioned that Norbert Recycling in Bridesville has set up an account in the name of the society and any recycling taken to Bertha Williams in benefit of FAR will see that amount added to the society’s account. Colleen Ross, the advertised speaker for the morning session reporting on the Grand Forks food forums, was unable to make it so Sheila Dobie, president of the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society (GFBRAS), filled in. The title of her talk was “Turning Ideas Into Action” and reported on two food security forums recently held in Grand Forks, last November and the second just a couple of weeks ago. “We are all part of the same movement,” Dobie told those gathered at the Midway meeting. “The outcomes of our Grand Forks food forums seem to be relevant to Midway and West Boundary people.” She said the forums in Grand Forks had been funded by Interior Health, RDKB and Community Futures Boundary. Ongoing activities of GFBRAS include an annual seed exchange—this year scheduled for March 22—the mobile abattoir, community gar-

dens, an education campaign against genetically modified organisms (GMO) and a tool library. The society is currently researching community greenhouses to see if something can be done to address off-season local food production. According to Dobie the Ag Society is investigating establishing a purchasing collective that would bring together local producers so they could buy some of their supplies in bulk as a way to lower their costs. The abattoir was reported to be complete and nearly ready for operation. A livestock coop has been started that will act as leaseholder and operator of the mobile abattoir. Ideas that came out of the marketing discussions in Grand Forks included the need for publication of a local producer directory, the establishment of true local profiles and branding with a ‘Grown in the Boundary Country’ brand identity and the development of a Kettle Valley grown standard for those producers who choose to follow organic principles. Dobie is excited about a Rotary Club water park fundraiser that is proposed for this fall – A Farm to Table Dinner with 100 per cent of the meal being served Boundary grown food. Dobie cautioned that continued vigilance is needed around water, land and air. “There is a threat popping up right now—the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) is under threat. Waiving the ALR on the Site C dam is not acceptable,” said Dobie. She also urged those in attendance to be aware of Bill C-18—the Agricultural Growth Act. This federal bill has drawn criticism from the National Farmers Union and Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. “This act will impact our ability as farmers and gardeners to save our own seeds,” explained Dobie. “It is a fundamental right of farmers and people to have that kind of control in their food supply. The most revolutionary thing you can do is grow your own food and save your own seed.” Dobie said there needs to be more education about local winter food security and the loss of food preservation skills. It was suggested by the audience that the West Boundary needs a community commercial kitchen. Dobie suggested building the data around the project in preparation for funding opportunities. There were three speakers in the afternoon. Dick Dunsdon - creator and manager of the Midway Community garden; Sue Harvey - internationally known apiarist spoke on the plight of bees; and Jamie Haynes—life-time farmer and supplier of grain to Heritage Mills in Rock Creek who gave a talk entitled—“Thinking to the Future” on the topic of grain growing, storing and processing in the West Boundary. Look for reports on these speakers in next week’s paper.

Group Guatemala-bound

To practice the grace of giving: that’s the purpose of a Spring Break trip to Guatemala by seven adventurers from the West Boundary. Going on the trip will be John Siewert, Kari Durban, Shelby Condon and Anna and Josiah Danyluk. They will be joined by Langleyite Elisha Sheremeto—though technically a come-fromaway, the young man has strong roots in the local community. They will be chaperoned by John’s mother, Lisa Siewert. The group is travelling to San Antonio Aguascalientes to work with Hope for Home, a home for children with disabilities. The entire Siewert family came across Hope for Home when they went on a five-month trip to the country a year ago. “All six of us went,” said Lisa, “something we’ve always wanted to do. We worked with a mission and built homes for widows, served gleaners soup out of a soup kitchen which we helped build, and went to outlying villages to bring food and blankets to the poor. I also taught English and our daughter Julianne worked in a hospital. It’s our son John who is the main motivator for get-

As well as helping at Hope for Home, we will be going to a number of orphanages, hospitals, outlying villages where they have feeding programs, and also bringing food, medicines and supplies to poor villages.

Letters to the editor

Flavoured tobacco should be banned

Chocolate, cherry, peach, mint and vanilla. Treat or trick?  Though they may sound like treats, these are flavours of tobacco we want to see removed from the shelves in 2014. In honour of Canada’s National NonSmoking Week, it’s time we say goodbye to the brightly-packaged, highlyaddictive, candy-coated carcinogens. We know youth are the biggest users of flavoured tobacco, but what may be surprising is that youth are also the biggest supporters of a provincial ban. Recent polling reveals 81 per cent of B.C. teens ages 15-18 agree the B.C. provincial government should adopt legislation to ban all tobacco products with fruit and candy flavours. An additional 74 per cent of B.C. adults (18+) also support a ban on flavoured products. Flavoured tobacco products carry the same health risks and are just as addictive as regular tobacco products, though their candy-like packaging suggests otherwise. What’s worse is that fruit, candy and menthol-flavoured products reduce the harsh experience of cigarette smoke, making it easier for youth who are experimenting with smoking to become addicted to tobacco. Tobacco use claims the lives of more than 6,000 British Columbians each year and it’s completely preventable. It’s time for a change. Help stop smoking before it starts by asking your local MLA and B.C. health minister to take action and create a provincial ban of all flavours of tobacco products.

After the Haggis was piped to the front table at the Greenwood Legion on Saturday night Bill Duff (right), recited the Ode to a Haggis. “It’s been 255 years since Robbie Burns died,” Steve McGibbon said. “The Haggis— why? It symbolizes making something from nothing. Oppressors left them with nothing. This is what they made and we’re still celebrating. “Even today ourselves we are oppressed—255 years later—they used to be called Barons and Lords now they are called CEOs. We’re all feeling it. “The push by advertising to have the big screen TV, to have this, to have that. “We’ve got Haggis!”

Library hosts ‘Tell Me a Tale’ event

Midway Public Library hosted a “Tell Me a Tale” event last Friday to celebrate Family Literacy Day. Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on Jan.27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. According to the ABC Life Literacy website (abclifeliteracy.ca), taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well. The event was cosponsored by the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) and the Midway Public Library.

BWRC showcases film Girl Rising is a film. Girl Rising is a movement. Girl Rising is an opportunity to change the future. Mark your calendars for the evening of Thursday, Feb. 13 when the Boundary Women’s Resource Centre (BWRC) presents a story of hope with the screening of Girl Rising at 7 p.m. at the GEM Theatre in Grand Forks. “This Valentine’s Day marks the second annual One Billion Rising, an international call to people around the world to address issues of gender violence,” said BWRC program manager Teresa Taylor in a press release announcing the showing. “To recognize this, the BWRC will showcase Girl Rising, to shine the spotlight on the transformative power of girls’ education.” With this screening fundraiser of Girl Rising, BWRC is bringing a global movement to educate girls and change the world home to Grand Forks. According to the release Girl Rising is a groundbreaking feature film that spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. The film captures their dreams, their voices and their remarkable lives. It is also a movement dedicated to empowering and achieving educational equity for girls around the world. “This screening will bring the people of the Boundary together to raise global visibility about the importance of educating girls,” said Taylor. “BWRC believes in the power of education to change not only a girl, but the world. By hosting this event in Grand Forks, we are demonstrating our commitment to breaking down the barriers that prevent girls around the world from going to school. ­Barriers like child marriage, sex trafficking, gender violence and discrimination. We are proud to be part of this growing movement, raising visibility in Grand Forks alongside thousands of other events worldwide.” The BWRC was started in 1996, by the Boundary Women’s Coalition (BWC). The BWC also operates the local Transition House. Taylor told the Times that the funds raised through the showing of this film go towards direct provision of services. “Raising funds is a mandatory piece of our annual activities required by our grant. The BWRC remains dependent and vulnerable with our funding, and these fundraising activities show our provincial funders that this service matters to our community.” The BWRC is committed to gender equality on a local and a global scale. The film screening of Girl Rising provides us with a unique opportunity to raise awareness and to support our local initiatives.

Partnership fund puts out call The motto of the Midway Partnership Fund (MPF) is “Creating a Complete Community” and to achieve that goal they are inviting letters of intent for funding during 2014. Over $7,000 was awarded last year. Applicants must meet certain criteria and grant monies must be used within the Village of Midway. Generally speaking, the Advisory Committee will fund up to 30 per cent of a proposed project. Organizations should have at least 50 per cent of their funding in place before applying. The Advisory Committee, at its discretion, may fund up to 100 per cent of a project’s cost. Funding provided since 2010 by the Midway Partnership Fund has assisted groups such as the museum, trails society, curling club, Parkview Manor, arena and library. Funds that are distributed come from two sources. The Heritage Fund is an investment partnership between the Village of Midway and the Vancouver Foundation. This fund continues in perpetuity and each year the interest income is forwarded to the advisory committee for granting purposes. The Legacy Fund is an investment partnership between the Village and the Phoenix Foundation. This fund carries on in perpetuity; however, unlike the Heritage Fund it remains open to donations from any interested party. Officers and directors of the MPF are John

Diabetes can be devastating. It contributes to arteriosclerosis (“hardening of the arteries” with cholesterol and inflammation) which then increases the rate of heart attacks and strokes by two to four and is the number one cause of kidney failure, erectile dysfunction, blindness and non-traumatic amputations. No wonder it is often called the “mother of all disease.” Normally treated by insulin, or medications by mouth, and by diet, it continues to work havoc with our circulation and multiple body organs. It incidence was stable until about 30 years ago but now is doubling every 15 years. There has been a 900 per cent increase in some age groups since the Second World War and now a newborn baby has a one in three chance of getting it during its lifetime. But now the good news. No longer is its diagnosis a death sentence. We now know that it is not simply a disease of genetics. The famous Harvard Nurses Study of 85,000 subjects found that

Fair, chairperson; Danny Anderson, co-chairperson; Elaine Fromme, Recording Secretary; and Directors at Large, John Greaves and Kim Lindseth. The committee usually meets monthly from January to May, when the AGM is held. In late February or early March they meet to review letters of intent. Organizations wishing to apply for funding are asked to submit a letter describing their idea and how much funding they are seeking. “We do that to make sure that they don’t waste their time—if they don’t meet our criteria we’ll tell them then rather than let them go through the full application,” Greaves explained. If the project meets the criteria the Advisory Committee invites them to submit a full application. Letters should be sent to: Advisory Committee, Midway Partnership Fund Village of Midway, P.O. Box 160, Midway, B.C., V0H 1M0. Fair said the MPF will accept letters of intent all year long, but they only meet in February to assess them. Pamphlets with full details about the work of the MPF are available at the library, the hardware store and the village office. The MPF is supported by the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities. For more information contact Chair John Fair at 250-449-2639 or to johnfair@hotmail.com

91 per cent of new cases of diabetes came from lifestyle (diet and exercise choices), not from genetics. That being the case, we can change those unhealthy choices and thus disarm this disease and halt its relentless course. Research over the last 80 years has shown that 60-75 per cent of diabetics on insulin—and 8090 per cent of those on diabetic pills, can be off those medications in a matter of weeks! And that bold statement comes from Dr. James Anderson of the University of Kentucky, who has spent 50 years working with over 15,000 diabetic and obese patients, directed over 200 clinical trials and published over 400 medical research papers, books and articles—a respected leader in this field. Thirty of those papers relate to the Simple Diet for Diabetes. Yet he is just one icon in the midst of tremendous research findings emerging from countless studies on this subject. The overwhelming evidence is that our positive choices can yield priceless results.

Students prepare for grad In conversation with members of the Class of 2014

Introducing

Miranda Boltz Class of 2014 grad Miranda Boltz is a quiet young woman with a lot that might surprise one upon first meeting her. It quickly becomes apparent that Miranda is a team player—in fact, if there is a team being put together for a sporting event it’s likely that Miranda will be there. She was voted most valuable player in basketball during the 2012-2013 season. In Boundary Minor hockey she won the Heart trophy in 2010-2011 and the Hart trophy in the 2011-2012. What stands out on her brag sheet is her participation on school sports teams. Grade 9 through 12 she played forward on the basketball team, left/right midfield soccer and right side centre on the volleyball team. Outside of school she’s been goalie on Boundary Predators hockey teams since Grade 5 and, for the last three years, has played on the Rock Creek ladies fastball team. She’s been giving back to the sport too; she’s been a hockey official for the past three years and is now certified as a

Level 2 official. She said that hockey is her favourite sport. Her short-term goals are to land a summer job—she doesn’t have one lined up yet. The job will allow her to bank some money before entering Okanagan College in the fall to study practical nursing. When asked why nursing and why OK College, Miranda explained, “I like to help people and the school is closer to home and has smaller classrooms.” Having a Plan B is always a good idea, so Miranda said she will submit applications to College of the Rockies and Thompson Rivers in case OK College is full. Her desire to help people has been expressed at BCSS through participation with Spirit Club and student council. At the time of her interview, student council was running a food drive and Spirit Club had just finished a fundraising campaign for cancer research and Locks of Love, something that was very meaningful for her personally because her grandfather was taken by cancer.

After his passing, the Boltz family rallied around Miranda’s grandmother and together they have organized the JLB Memorial Kettle River Run each June to raise funds for the B.C. Cancer Foundation of Southern B.C. This year will see the fifth annual running of the run that is growing in popularity each year. Miranda has an effective resume to show to potential employers. She’s currently still employed to carry out the janitorial duties at the Midway Public Library and worked at McMynn’s Family Foods over the 2013 summer school break. Miranda moved to the Boundary from the Kimberley-Golden area with her family when she was in Grade 5. She likes it here, saying it’s not cold. She recalls being very shy when she started at BCSS. But says her involvement in sports has allowed her to feel comfortable in opening up. That’s good. She’s got a lot to offer her school, her teammates and her community.

New ‘public morals’ to be enforced AL DONNELLY

Chronicles of Boundary Country from the pages of the Boundary Creek Times Volume IV, No.9 – May 7, 1898

other vehicle drawn by a horse, horses or other animal in any of the streets shall permit the animal which he be so driving or riding to go at a gallop or other immoderate rate exceeding 8 miles an hour. ➤ Sunset Claim Sold – “It is reported that the Sunset claim in the Similkameen district has been secured by the British American Corporation. The price paid for the 7/8th interest is said to be $55,000. The Sunset was owned by Robert Allan Brown of Grand Forks. (ed. - Mr. Brown was always known by his colourful nicknames— Volcanic and Sunset.) Mr. Brown passed through Midway on Wednesday and stated that the sale had been made. He had an earnest of the sale in the shape of a big roll of bills.” ➤ The Rush to the Klondyke – “Dominion Veterinary Surgeon John Christie returned from Osoyoos, where he had been kept busy for a week examining the horses of the many argonauts who are rushing to the northern land of gold. During the week, he passed 741

BLASTS FROM THE PAST

➤ Public Morals ByLaw Enacted – Here are a few of the new ‘Public Morals’ to be enforced by the City of Greenwood: 1. No person shall sell or give any intoxicating drink to any child or apprentice without the consent of the parents, master or legal protector of such child or apprentice. 2. No person shall make use of any profane swearing, obscene, blasphemous or grossly insulting language, or be guilty of any other vice, immorality or indecency on, in or about the streets or in any public place in the City. 3. No person shall indecently expose any part of his or her person in any street or public place, nor shall the plea of answering the call of nature be considered a palliation of the offence. 4. No person driving any carriage or

horses, rejected 11, and ordered three killed due to lung problems. The rush across the overland route to the Yukon appears crazy. The majority of the men have plenty of horses, but little money. They do not seem to know how they are going to reach the Yukon, and care less. Dr. Christie returns to Osoyoos to await the arrival of about 1,000 horses which belong to prospectors coming from Utah.” ➤ ‘Pure as a Lily Advertisement’ – Rendell & Co. ran the following fullpage advertisement: “PURE AS A ‘LILY’ and as Sweet as the Flowers in May. ‘Lily’ Cream contains no substance but fresh, pure, sweet Milk evaporated to a rich Cream, containing 8% of Butter fat and thoroughly sterilized.” ➤ An Enemy of Boundary Creek – “Member of Parliament W.W.B. McInnes has left Ottawa for home, to take a hand in the British Columbia provincial election in support of the Turner government. If he should happen to come into this district campaigning, the people should remember that he told the railway committee of the House of Commons that Midway, Greenwood and Grand Forks were ‘fake American boom paper towns.

HUGS S and G U L S If you have a hug or a slug, we’d like to hear it. Be honest, but all we ask is that you keep it tasteful. Editor’s discretion will always be exercised. Simply email reporter@boundarycreektimes.com; or you may drop them off at 318 South Copper Street in Greenwood.

Slugs: To whoever put the “slug” in the paper regarding mammogram booking. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in Canadian women. The B.C. Mammography Mobile Program is a free service for women ages 40-79 that goes from town to town on an annual basis and Greenwood is fortunate to be a part of their circuit. Early detection saves lives!!!!! Winterfest can be held on any weekend! Double Slugs: To the Greenwood city crew for not taking the snow off the roads when it was just slush. From an old grader operator.

Hugs: To Toby and Anaconda Café—17 years of serving Greenwood and surrounding area. Best wishes in your next venture. We will all miss the Anaconda. Slugs: To community clubs who do not THINK about what is going on in their community and surrounding communities when making plans for events. Slugs: To the person who put in the slug last week criticizing the Greenwood Community Association for booking McArthur Centre for the mammography screening. These people keep the community hall going. They put in a lot of volunteer time and do not deserve to be slammed like that.
