City begins building budget CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The breadth and width of the city’s budget will be rolled out for public input and viewing over the next two months. The City of Grand Forks council is in the process of putting together the budget for 2014, starting with the committee of the whole meeting (COW) on Tuesday, Feb. 11. During that meeting city staff gave a capital budget

presentation to council, identifying prioritization of capital items presented by city management and the direction of new capital items coming from council. “We divide it into the operating budget and the capital budget,” said Roxanne Shepherd, city chief financial officer. “At the last committee of the whole meeting (Jan. 27), we presented the initial operating plan for the year (2014). On Tuesday, we presented the initial capital pre-

sentation.” On Monday, Feb. 24, the city will have an open house with an early draft of the budget ready for input from the public. Shepherd said early on in the process the budget looks good but staff will have to take into account things such as increased postage costs, increased insurance rates due to the fire, as well as the realignment of several departments. “We’re doing well,” she said. “We came in under

budget this year. “Many of the things we wanted to do in 2013 we got done. We got a lot accomplished and came in under budget so I think it looks good.” Some of the more expensive projects the city undertook last year were the downtown beautification project, asset management project alignment, TransCanada Trail project and Boundary storm sewer.

All kinds of folks hit the ice at Wilgress Lake for the annual Ice Fishing Derby on Family Day weekend. With over $3,000 in prizes, it’s no surprise there was a great turnout of families, friends and solo fisher people all looking for the big catch. There was also a snow sculpture contest which was won by the Anderson family and featured the Wilgress Monster. (Left): Mike Paradowski was in the hunt after catching a pair of two-pounders, but finished third. See page 3 for results.

It’s the countdown to the 2013 RRSP contribution deadline.

THE WILGRESS MONSTER

Black ice causes MVA on Eholt Pass Police responded to a single motor vehicle accident on Jan. 31 at 1 p.m. “A vehicle hit black ice on the Eholt Pass and spun 360 degrees before hitting the ditch,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. There were no injuries reported. The vehicle was found embedded in deep snow with damage to the front end and rear bumper. “It looks like the vehicle might’ve rolled with damage to the roof,” added Harrison. The driver was an 83-year-old male from Greenwood driving a Mazda Protégé four-door sedan. Minor theft from vehicle On Feb. 1 at 2:13 p.m., there was a minor theft from two vehicles parked at a residence on Valley Heights Drive, reported to have occurred sometime during the night. “The vehicles were not locked,” said Harrison. “Someone entered the vehicles and took coins and receipts. An unknown amount of small change was taken.” Police have no witnesses and no suspects at this time. Anyone with any information is urged to call Grand Forks RCMP at 250-442-8288 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Theft from carport On Feb. 2 at 3:02 p.m. RCMP received a report that on Jan. 31 at about 4 p.m. a lady had heard her dog barking and she saw an older black pick-up truck leaving her driveway at a high rate of speed. “Afterwards she learned that two gas cans were seen in the back of the truck and that two gas cans had been stolen from the carport,” said Harrison. “She waited to check with her husband, who was out of town, to verify that the gas cans had been there.” There were no other witnesses. Police are on the look out for an older, black pick-up truck. Unusual break-and-enter On Feb. 2 at 3:13 a.m. police received a complaint about a break-and-enter at Western Rocky Mountain Industries on Highway 3. “Apparently, someone punched a hole in the exterior office glass door and entered the office,” said Harrison. “Several valuables were taken, and it appears a small 18-by-18 inch (45.72 centimetres by 45.72 cm.) safe, that was kept on the shelf in the bathroom, was stolen.” At this time, RCMP are not reporting what was in the safe. “The investigation indicates that a small truck may have been involved at the point of entry,” he said. Police have picked up some forensic evidence at the scene but are still investigating. There are no witnesses and no suspects at this time. Anyone with any information is urged to call Grand Forks RCMP at 250-442-8288 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Hospital board earmarks cash for Hardy View TIMOTHY SCHAFER Grand Forks Gazette

An outdated nurse call system will be upgraded in Grand Forks as one of the 10 regional projects chosen for funding by the West Kootenay Regional Hospital District board last week. The regional hospital board, compromised of 30 directors representing the West Kootenay-Boundary areas and municipalities, included a $280,000 project to upgrade the nurse call system at Hardy View Lodge residential care facility. The call system has become obsolete, said Ingrid Hampf, acute care area director, and the manufacturer can no longer supply parts and service for the system. “It will be a very same system we replace it with, but obviously one that can continue to provide service,” she said. The system will be replaced in April. Overall, the board approved 10 capital funding request projects for a total $3.5 million for the

will potentially benefit patients from across our region who need that specialized care,” she said. The project will retrofit an existing ICU patient room into the airborne isolation room. The regional hospital board takes an annual look at a list of projects, during annual budget talks, that Interior Health deems priority upgrades. The board is required to foot 40 per cent of the bill of projects— raised through local taxation—or almost $112,000 for the Grand Forks project. Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson will receive new sidewalks, curbing and parking lot replacement totaling $180,000. Additionally, a $948,429 global grant will be allocated in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 in all facilities for minor equipment upgrades. With the local budget priorities in place, the next phase is for the regional district to formalize the agreement by establishing a bylaw for taxation that will be enacted in March.

2014/15 year. Further afield, more than $2 million will be allocated to upgrades for the region’s main hospital, the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH). The hospital is earmarked to receive an airborne isolation room in the second floor intensive care unit (ICU) totaling $660,000, with an additional $480,000 budgeted to improve the hospital’s air conditioning system, telephone software and radiology department upgrades. The Silver City facility was chosen for the airborne isolation room— a significant infection control upgrade—since it was the only hospital in the region with an ICU. An ICU contains doctors and critical care nurses specializing in caring for people with severe and lifethreatening illnesses and injuries. Hampf said with the emergence of new pathogens such as SARS and avian flu, the isolation room can be modified to reflect setting-specific needs for quarantine. “Having this new isolation room

ity council has embarked on the construction of the next budget, the overall vision, for the seat of city govenment in the coming year. This is a time when people should become more interested in their local municipal machinations, to attend the scheduled open house and workshop on the budget, and hear for themsleves what their tax dollars will be going toward. The process is open to the public. The city has planned some opportunities to give people an inside look at what goes into the budget—as well the operation of the city—and the projects planned for realization this year, in addition to giving them a venue to comment on it. The third event early in March (March 10) laying out the city’s draft version of the budget is the optimum time to see how the budget is pieced together. Weaving all aspects of city operation—from capital projects to maintenance to administration and core services—the presentation will detail the delivery of all projects, programs and services in Grand Forks. People who do have questions about city operations should attend the meetings and ask their questions directly. The political process at any level can seem onerous at times, and exclusive, but this is one time where it is inclusive.

Defiance isn’t guiding principle of governance second opinion

T

JIM HOlTZ

he recent decision on the part of the Ministry of Education to appeal the latest court decision regarding teachers’ contracts is going to do little but exacerbate the problem that was created in 2002 when Premier Clark was the Minister of Education. As minister she sponsored the legislation that removed the contractual right of teachers to bargain for class size and class composition limits. These rights were fought for by teachers over many years. They were one of the reasons that teachers chose to become a union. When Premier Bill Vander Zalm was in power he gave teachers a choice: they could remain a professional associ-

ation like the doctors or become a union and achieve full bargaining rights including bargaining for class size and composition. They chose to became a union. In contractual bargaining over the years, teachers have always been told that there was only so much money in the government’s coffers and that decisions about how to spend it had to be limited accordingly. Teachers could have asked to have their salaries increased with those limited dollars; instead they have always asked for more teachers. Teachers know first hand that smaller class sizes increases the amount of student/teacher contact, allows more individual instruction and a wider variety of instructional practices, and in general improves the classroom experience for all students. The modern classroom

attempts to engage all students in a wide variety of activities and instruction opportunities that are designed with individual student’s needs in mind. As Minister of Education, Premier Clark proudly announced during a CBC radio interview that her government had enshrined class size limits in legislation, something that had never been done before. She was right. She didn’t mention that the legislation increased class sizes or that up until then it was only the teachers who, in their contracts, had maintained reasonable limits on class size and composition. She also didn’t mention that her government’s actions were illegal, which the courts have now determined several times. School trustees and administrators are extremely nervous. They have to start to plan for the repercussions

of the court decision. The government itself says that it might cost billions of dollars, billions which apparently the government should have spent on education, but didn’t. In the past, the government has told school districts to deal with financial shortfalls by simply “finding efficiencies” and making cuts. Trustees know that this time such a decree would be disastrous. Premier Clark has only herself and her government to blame for the current situation. Over the years they have adhered to their conservative ideology and defied all critical assessment of their policies by doctors, nurses, teachers and now judges. Defiance as a guiding principle of governance is in use in many places around the world. It shouldn’t be in B.C. Jim Holtz is a Boundarybased writer.

to the editor

A badge of honour for standing up for one’s rights

To the Editor: You may have heard reports in the media regarding health care workers in the province in regards to the flu vaccine. Interior Health during this flu season has made it mandatory for health care workers to receive the vaccine or wear a mask. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. For many this may seem reasonable. However, it may not be that simple. My wife is an emergency room nurse at Grand Forks hospital. She is one of many health care professionals that has researched the benefits and consequences of the vaccination. She made a personal decision not to receive the vaccination.

She was then left with the only option of wearing a surgical mask for the duration of her 12-hour shifts. However it became immediately apparent that the mask or wearing of the mask for such extended periods caused an adverse reaction to the skin below the mask. She developed a painful burning rash. She found the rash would subside on days off, only to flare up upon returning to work. She decided wearing of the mask was no longer an option and requested accommodation for her very specific and unique situation. She was refused. The experience has left her defeated and powerless. For her there is no similar compassion that she showed so many patients in her years of nursing.

Some may say the situation begs the question. Why not just get the vaccine? And until I read some of the literature available from prominent doctors and other health care professionals, I may have agreed. Many health care workers have chosen not to receive the vaccine. Many that have received the vaccine report doing so under duress. Others report feeling stigmatized by wearing the mask—almost like a scarlet letter identifying them somehow as less concerned with their patients’ health. I assure nothing could be further from the truth. My wife has 13 years of experience as a registered nurse. I have watched her use countless hours of her own free time researching and

upgrading her education to be better prepared for what may come through the emergency room doors next. I have seen and heard the stories of needle stick injuries, being exposed to every bodily fluid, being assaulted and verbally abused. It isn’t easy being a health care worker. Now add to that being forced to have an injection you object to or wear a mask for 12 hours. And if you think wearing a mask for 12 hours isn’t a big deal, give it a try. If you find yourself in a health care facility and you come across a health care worker wearing a mask, make sure to let them know, it isn’t a scarlet letter. It’s a badge of honour. For standing up for their rights. Harland Venema, Grand Forks

Next civic election will decide the growing water meter controversy To the Editor: The cry in the City of Grand Forks is for a referendum concerning the installations of the controversial water meters. A referendum of sorts will be held in November of this year: it will be the city council elections. The group or groups of people unhappy with the meters can and should find people of like mind to run in the civic election this year, and then the voters can decide on this divisive subject. It is reasonable to believe if enough anti-water meter candidates are elected to city council then the water meter project can be reversed. Council introduced this measure in the last year of their term, they must have known this would be an emotional issue, perhaps costing them their jobs. David Janzen, Grand Forks

To the Editor: Recently the Gazette has carried reports and letters which should raise some concerns with city taxpayers: 1. Of 153 municipalities under review, 120 were deemed to be more financially responsible than Grand Forks. Only 32 were deemed to be worse offenders. This rating will do nothing to encourage new businesses or industries to relocate to our city. 2. The city claims that electricity is supplied to its customers at two per cent below what Fortis would charge if dealing directly with the consumer. Bob Egli (Dec. 18, 2013) and Sylvia Treptow (Dec. 11, 25, 2013) have presented figures showing that this is incorrect, and that the customers are being gouged. The electrical department is expected to show a “profit” of $669,900 in 2014, of which some 60 per cent will be skimmed off and transferred to general revenue. Overcharging customers and using the proceeds to cover unrelated expenses is only taxation by another name. Will the same policy apply when we start paying for our water consumption? 3. Water meters are expected to reduce consumption to a point where smaller pipes can be used to replace older pipes. Frank Triveri (Jan. 15, 2014) points out the city claims this will save “millions of dollars,” with no documentation to support this. Will the smaller pipes handle the requirements in case of a major fire? The city is obviously planning on no increased demand from population or industry expansion, but would be in a very embarrassing position if even a modest increase in demand could not be met by the new pipes. On the other hand, the fire department seems to be relying on an economic/population boom with highrise buildings popping up all over to justify the purchase of a very expensive ladder truck. You can’t argue it both ways. These concerns, and any others that our citizens have, should be addressed in the pages of the Gazette for citizens who are unable to access the city website. An informed electorate is an involved electorate. B. Hardwicke, Grand Forks

City unveils plans on phase 2 downtown STAFF

Grand Forks Gazette

Downtown Grand Forks is undergoing a makeover of sorts. In order to understand and get an inside look at this makeover, the City of Grand Forks is hosting an open house so residents can learn more about plans for phase two of the Downtown Beautification Plan. The open house will be held on Thursday, Feb. 20 from 2-6 p.m. at gallery 2, 524 Central Ave. Council members and staff will be on hand to answer questions, plus the people can complete the feedback form with their thoughts on enriching downtown Grand Forks, creating a more vibrant and inviting area for residents and visitors. “Through the Downtown Beautification Project we want to build on the liveability and quality of life in our community by making the downtown a focus for investment opportunity and tourism attraction,” said Mayor Brian Taylor. “Downtowns are the vital social and economic engines of many communities.” Phase one was completed last spring along Market Avenue. The project included hanging baskets and planters, upgraded lighting, new garbage and recycle bins, new bench seating and painted crosswalks. Starting in the spring, work will be completed on Market Avenue and will begin on 72 Avenue and Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth streets with new benches, improved lighting, bike racks, hanging baskets, painted crosswalks, landscaping and planters. Additional information on the Downtown Beautification Project will also be posted on the city’s website at www.grandforks.ca/Document4.

IN BRIEF

Special Thanks

Roadblock nets traffickers

to our Volunteers & Supporters of the rd 3 Annual Wilgress Lake Ice Fishing Derby

On Feb. 1 at 8:30 p.m. Castlegar RCMP received a complaint relating to a passenger of a vehicle who was observed to be pointing what appeared to be a firearm. Police roadblocks were set up throughout the Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment area in efforts of locating this vehicle. At 9:17 p.m. the suspect vehicle came through a roadblock set up in Grand Forks. Members of Grand Forks RCMP and West Kootenay Traffic Services arrested four occupants and seized a significant amount of packaged marijuana. A firearm was subsequently located near the roadblock and seized by police.

Smart meter installation begins FortisBC customers who are concerned about advanced meters when they go in this year can opt for a radiooff option. The cost, which was approved by BCUC last December, is $60 before the meters are installed and $88 afterwards. The customers would also have to pay $18 every two months to have the meter read manually. FortisBC’s Neal Pobran said the company hopes to begin exchanging the meters starting this summer. He says they will notify customers by letter a month before to let them know. “We’re expecting to be done all the meter exchanges by the end of 2015,” he said.

RDKB defers motion to raise director stipends CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The regional district directors are considering granting themselves a raise. At the Jan. 30 Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) board meeting in Grand Forks, a motion to approve an increase to the director’s monthly stipend by $200 per month, plus $200 per month for a technology allowance (which would combine the present $75 cell phone allowance and $175 technology allowance) and establish a car allowance of $50 per month. The amount would represent a 36 per cent increase. The presentation on the raise was done by Trail director Robert Cacchioni to the policy, executive and personnel (PEP) committee, said Grace McGregor, RDKB board chair. “It showed the widening gap between what municipal directors get paid and what electoral area directors get paid,” she said. Electoral area directors represent

Leadership clinic coming to Kootenays

OPEN FOR VIEWING Saturday, February 15 & Sunday, February 16 2pm – 5pm Come out and see what we’ve done so far to the Granby Building 7330 Riverside Drive, Grand Forks Commercial and Residential Condominiums

The Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network (CBEEN) is offering an environmental education opportunity in the Kootenay region. This spring, eight teams of four will have the opportunity to participate in the Kootenay’s first Environmental Education Leadership Clinic, to be held April 26 -29. Taking place adjacent to Kootenay National Park at Nipika Mountain Resort, the leadership clinic will give regional organizations the opportunity to team build, action plan and work with others who are doing similar work across the country. CBEEN is looking at this clinic being used as the scaffolding to host a much larger national conference in the Kootenays in 2017 which would bring hundreds of practitioners and academics to the region. To find out more or to apply to attend go to www.cbeen.org/ leadership_clinic.

rural areas A, B, C, D and E in the Kootenay-Boundary, while the remaining directors, the municipal directors, represent larger areas such as towns and cities. McGregor said the motion was deferred to allow PEP to look at the issue more in depth with the information Cacchioni provided. McGregor said the different directors play different roles with the RDKB board providing the only local government for the electoral areas. “We make different decisions,” she said. “That is our main government whereas municipal directors, their main government is their council. So they sit at that table because they share some services as a regional district.” Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor, who sits as the chair of the PEP committee, said it would be an interesting challenge for the committee to have to go over the remuneration issue once again. “There needs to be more discussion, that’s why it’s back at PEP,” he said.

YOU AND YOUR MONEY FINANCIAL PLANNER = FINANCIAL DOCTOR

The perfect coach to call on

Financial planners are a little like family doctors. They can be generalists or specialists, and the best ones help you keep your affairs nicely in balance so that you can live a long, enjoyable life. First of all, a financial planner will sound out a client just like a doctor does with a patient. Your financial situation will be assessed, and then the diagnosis and treatment will follow. A planner will ask you what you want to look like in ten years, in terms of investment risk: round, thin, all in proportion? Once you have discussed the level of financial independence you are aiming for, along with your retirement objectives and your children’s education plans, a financial planner will note and highlight any obstacles. These might include an insufficient projected income, indebtedness, and unsuitable income tax bracket. Then, he or she will propose some exercises — rigorous or gentle, depending on your constitution — that will help you attain the state of financial health you want. Legitimate professional financial planners have a college diploma or university degree, along with specialized training. Ask which professional associations they belong to. Be sure to check that their advice is given independently; that means find out who pays them. It is recommended that you meet at least once a year with your financial planner, so that they can put a human face to your file and so that you can continue to be assured that he or she is a trustworthy professional.

Planning your retirement well is essential for the peace of mind of both you and your family. It should be done early and intelligently. Here are the five steps to follow: 1 – PLAN at what age do you plan on retiring? The answer to this question will motivate you to calculate the revenue acceptable for the lifestyle you wish to maintain. The norm is around 65 per cent of the revenue you earned during the last few years in the workplace. 2 – CALCULATE Take into account all the revenues which will be at your disposal during retirement: your employer’s pension plan, your RRSP, your share of an inheritance originating from a dissolved marriage, federal and provincial pensions, investments in a family business, the value of your home if you are thinking of selling it, the revenue from a part-time job, an inheritance, etc. 3 – EVALUATE When the time comes to retire, what will your financial situation look like? To know this you must evaluate all your expenses and needs for retirement. Will your budget need to take into account holidays every year, a condominium in Florida, going back to school? 4 – QUANTIFY It’s not impossible to make up the shortfall between what you have and what you would like to have. Set your objective right now as far as the savings you will need for later in life. Consider all possibilities and consult a specialist in order to make the best decisions. 5 – TRANSFER If you are a business person, plan management succession and the transfer of the property so your business will survive intact. Don’t forget that retirement planning is closely connected to tax and inheritance planning.

Each week a set of moms with their young babies attend Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes in English and math, while their children are being looked after—just across the hall.

Going back to school with baby SUBMITTED

To the Grand Forks Gazette

Busy moms with young children usually don’t have time to go back to school, unless they can bring their babies with them. That’s just what a new program offers. Each week a set of moms with their young babies attend Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes in English and math, while their children are being looked after—just across the hall. This unique program is the brainchild of an ABE Selkirk College instructor in Castlegar and has been offered for several years in the West Kootenay. In the fall of 2013 one such program started here in Grand Forks. The program is the result of a partnership of agencies that saw the need to offer this opportunity to parents of young children in the community.

CITY OF GRAND FORKS

PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE 2014-2018 FIVE YEAR FINANCIAL PLAN

Boundary Family and Individual Services (BFISS), Selkirk College, and Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) are making this local program happen, with the support of Phoenix Foundation. Selkirk College instructors provide instruction while the childcare takes place—supported by CBAL and Phoenix Foundation—all in the family friendly environment of the Glanville Family Centre near Perley School. “These are busy parents and this program offers precious time for them to upgrade their skills,” said Christy Luke, one of the Selkirk instructors. “One of our students is an English as a Second Language student, with a very young child, so this has been a great help for her to continue working on her language skills.” If you are interested in this program you are invited to connect with Selkirk College for an appointment.

IN BRIEF Supporting local Women’s Centre The Boundary Women’s Resource Centre at 268 Market Ave. is hosting the film presentation of Girl Rising on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the GEM Theatre. Tickets are $10 and available from councilor Cher Wyers at this month’s Boundary Women in Business luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 11:30 a.m. at the Station Pub. Girl Rising is a documentary from Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins. It journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway give their voice. By planning to attend you will support the local Women’s Centre and meet the newly formed Federation of Canadian Municipalities, FCM Head Start For Young Women-Grand Forks Group, local young girls ages 16-24 who have come together under a pilot project funded by the Women’ Institute of Canada to identify the challenges they see for women to be in political life. Head Start brings the girls to the root of their community where they experience and learn what makes up a community and the values in volunteering and being involved.

An ad-hoc group calling itself the Coalition for a more Democratic Process presented council with a petition Tuesday with more than 500 signatures demanding a referendum before water meter installation goes forward. “We are asking city council to go to referendum this election (in November) on the issue of installing residential water meters,” said Julia Butler, one of the main organizers. “We want people to have a vote on the issue.” Volunteers have been around Grand Forks getting signatures at places like the Post Office, in the downtown, at the arena, as well as doorto-door since the last council meeting (Jan. 24). “It’s really taken off,” she said. “People have come up to us after signing the petition and asked for copies for their neighbours to sign.” The group originally turned in 129 signatures to the city in late January as they were told they needed to get the petition in a week before the council meeting. “After that we continued to collect names on the petition with the hope that council, in good conscience, would accept it from us today (at committee of the whole Feb. 11), since we had such a short time to collect them,” said Butler. “We wanted them (council) to have time to look over before council tonight.” Butler said it’s important for council to know how people in the community feel. “They might just take it into account as information rather than an official petition,” she said.

This week’s schedule: Away: Friday, Feb. 14: @ Nelson, 7: 00 p.m. Home: Saturday, Feb. 15: Nelson, 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16: Spokane, 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19: Creston, 7 p.m.

Resolving sexual harassment z Community

Justice Corner RICHARD TARNOFF

C

ommunity justice forums and other restorative justice processes are centered on the experiences of victims. They also give offenders the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions. A further important benefit, that is sometimes overlooked, is that they can lead to understanding and connection between people who were feeling hurt and angry. This week’s story is about how an incident of sexual harassment in a school in Maryland was resolved. In the school cafeteria line, a 14-year-old boy took his friend’s hand, and placed it on the breast of the girl behind them. The girl ran out of the cafeteria in tears, and the boys were suspended for 25 days. The girl’s father still wanted to have them arrested, but he agreed to attend a community conference before taking that step. At the conference, the boy who instigated the incident sat slumped in his chair, arms crossed, and gave a quiet, short version of what happened. The other boy was very apologetic as he spoke about what happened. The girl let them know how hurt she was. The girl’s father was emotional, saying he lost a lot of sleep wondering if this was planned, or if it was just a stupid last-minute prank. “It just happened. We didn’t plan it.” After several others spoke, the girl’s father saw the instigator still slumped with arms crossed, and said, “This is a waste of time. He’s just not getting it.” The boy’s mother interjected, “He looks like this now, but he’s been crying at home over this.” Everyone was quiet, realizing that we don’t teach or allow our boys to show vulnerability. The conversation continued, and within a minute tears were rolling down the boy’s cheeks. At that moment, the girl’s father leaned toward him and said, “Son, you don’t realize the consequences of what you’re doing, because you could end up in jail, and there are far too many African-American men in jail. And I don’t want that to happen to you because I love you and want you to make the most of your life.” Tears welled in everyone’s eyes. The boys apologized to the girl, her parents, their own family and the principal. The girl’s father suggested the boys should return to school, and their role should be to protect the girls in that school. The principal agreed. The girl’s father said that he would check up on the boys every week, which he did for the remaining eight months of school. Richard Tarnoff is coordinator of the Boundary Restorative Justice Program. Assistance from the Independent Academic Research Studies program, UK, is gratefully acknowledged.

The Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) Wolves Grade 8 girls basketball team won another game recently. The girls travelled to Trail to take on the J.L. Crowe Hawks and beat their hosts 16-10 with a balanced offensive attack. The Wolves are now gearing up for the year end West Kootenay play downs which go at the end of this month.

The Grand Forks Bruins atom hockey club took top honours in a Castlegar tournament Jan. 31-Feb 2. The Bruins started the weekend playing against Nelson 99 and won, playing later that day against the host Castlegar Ice Hawks, winning that game as well. Grand Forks then played Sunday morning against the Nelson Leafs and lost. Thinking they were heading home for the rest of the day, they arrived at the Castlegar Complex to find they finished the first round in third place and had another game to play against the Cranbrook Ice. That game proved to be “stressful” but the outcome had the Bruins come out on top with a win. That game put the Grand Forks

Bruins lose more ground in playoff push

swered a few minutes later to tie the score 1-1. Castlegar then scored two consecutive power play goals with Jeremy McNeil and Chase Reddin finding the net to put the home team up 3-1. Kyle Dolly brought the Bruins to within one at 6:02 of the second, assisted by Tucker Brown. Unfortunately, that was all the scoring the Bears would manage as they gave up three unanswered goals and fell 6-2. “I think we had a good first two periods but then the third period kind of got away from us with penalties and everything,” said veteran Bruins’ defenceman Nathan Cory. “The score didn’t really reflect on how we played. I would say we need to cut down on the penalties. When we were five-on-five we were dominating Castlegar. “The penalties just take away our momentum and give it to them. If we cut down there, we’ll be fine.” Cory said the team is still hopeful that they will make the playoffs but that every game is crucial. “Heading down the stretch, we have to win game after game,” he said. “We can’t be looking at what Castlegar or Spokane is doing. We just have to win the games.”

CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The promised land of the playoffs slipped a little further away from the Grand Forks Border Bruins after another loss Saturday at Jack Goddard Memorial Arena. The Bruins showed some signs of life as they clung to a faint sliver of hope of making the KIJHL’s post season pageant, but untimely penalties and a lack of finish around the net doomed them to a 6-2 loss to the Castlegar Rebels. The hole was dug early in the game when the Rebels took a 2-0 after one period on a pair of power play goals from Matt Reed and veteran defenceman Aaron Brewer, who picked the corner on Bruins’ netminder Dominick Stadnyk. Near the end of the first period, Bruin forward Graham Watkins was tossed by referee Devin Samaddar after putting Castlegar forward Darren Medeiros halfway through the boards. Watkins received five minutes for a check from behind and a game misconduct. However, Connor Gross gave the Bruins some life with the team’s first goal at 13:36 of the second period, assisted by Max Newton and Coleton Dawson. But the Rebels replied

with three unanswered goals from three different scorers (Hunter Jenerou, Connor Beauchemin and Aaron Petten) to go up 5-1. Dakota Kittle scored a power play goal at 1:50 of the third, assisted by Nathan Cory and Kyle Dolly, but it was too little too late for the Bruins. Jenerou finished off the scoring for Castlegar with a power play goal with 48 seconds left. Stadnyk started the game and played almost 42 minutes, stopping 46 of

51 shots. Kai McDonald replaced him with 18:07 left in the third and stopped 16 of 17 shots he faced. With Spokane splitting on their two-game East Kootenay road tour, the Braves are now up eight points on the Bruins for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Neil Murdoch Division. With only seven games left, Grand Forks’ playoff hopes are slim indeed. Rebels 6, Bruins 2 (Friday) With their playoff chanc-

es dwindling, the Grand Forks Border Bruins had a chance of catching some ground in the division with a win over the Rebels in Castlegar on Friday. Unfortunately, special teams and an inability to score doomed the Bruins as they fell 6-2 to Castlegar despite outshooting them 45-38. Max Newton opened up scoring at 17:36 of the first period assisted by Lukas Peters. Veteran Rebel forward Kody Disher an-

he primary role of the NLS lifeguard is the prevention of emergency situations and, where this fails, the timely and effective resolution of emergencies. The NLS award is designed to prepare lifeguards to fulfill this role as professional facilitators of safe, enjoyable aquatics. NLS training is designed to teach the principles and develop the basic lifeguarding skills and decision-making processes that will help lifeguards evaluate and adapt to different aquatic facilities and emergencies. The NLS pool option builds on the fundamental skills, knowledge and values taught in the NLS core course to train lifeguards in safety supervision and rescue in a pool environment.

z GFREC Report

GRAND FORKS RECREATION

This year’s one-week course is scheduled for June 25-30. The Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross courses are designed to prepare you for lifesaving skills needed for an emergency water safety situation. They are prerequisites needed to become a lifeguard. From March 24-28 you can start your training towards a career in aquatics. GFREC will be combining these two courses so you can obtain your certification

in just one week. Registration deadline is March 10 and the registration fee is just $315 for the one-week camp. The Assistant Water Safety Instructor course (AWSI) teaches candidates the foundation of instructional skills such as teaching methods, learning styles, physical principles, progressions, communication, safety supervision and feedback. If you or your youth loves working with children and have a love for water, start your training for a career in aquatics. There will be an AWSI spring break camp held at the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre from March 17-21. It includes all your practical teaching. Deadline to register is Monday, March 3.

The Grand Forks pee wee Border Bruins hosted a tournament on the weekend and came up just short of the gold medal. The Bruins were undefeated in the round-robin, beating Kelowna Ice Hawks 7-3, Kelowna Bruins 7-1 and Spokane 14-1. In the semi-final, GF came up big, beating the other Bruins from Kelowna 7-1 to advance to the final. In the final game Monday afternoon, the Bruins came back from a 3-0 deficit to the Ice Hawks to tie it up at 5-5 but eventually fell 6-5.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 2014 Grand Grand Forks ForksGazette Gazette

As the owner of a large company I went down to check out how everything was going. I noticed some guy just chilling in the coffee room. “Just how much are you getting paid a week?” “Two hundred bucks!” Replied the young man. Taking out my wallet I give him two hundred bucks and say, “here is a week’s pay and don’t come back!” Turning to one of the supervisors, I ask, “how long was that lazy bum working here anyways?” “He doesn’t work here,” said the supervisor. “He just walked in to ask directions!”

The Olympic frenzy and phenomenon

I

feel proud to be Canadian and follow the events and all the excitement of the Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As we view the 2014 Olympics, I encourage you to join our community and our country as we cheer on our athletes and coaches. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. As a nation we have a lot of hope placed on their performance and the medals they will win. But do we value them for who they are and not just for what they do? Of course when we only value them for the medals they win, we do them a disservice. This puts a lot of pressure on them because if they fall short they feel like they have failed themselves, their family, and the whole country. It is great to cheer when your country wins a gold medal. You can shout, “We won, we won” and feel part of the team. Followers of Jesus Christ are also on the winning team! Jesus’ victory over sin and death has become their victory. To become part of the winning team, Jesus’ victory must become your victory. This week athletes from 90 countries are in Sochi, Russia for the 22nd Olympic Winter

Games. Simultaneously, millions of us are gathered together around our television sets to watch. These Games are a phenomenon that occur every four years and are one of the only reoccurring events where people from around the globe put their differences aside, as they bond together for two weeks of athletic competition. The term Unity with Diversity must always be highlighted! My thoughts go towards the real meaning of family, community, and country. In each grouping we too often focus on the many differences but we need to choose to live in Unity. Peace requires a respect for diversity and a desire to live in unity. Do you value others for who they

are or for what they can do for you? Both the Olympic Motto and Olympic Creed remind us that to be human is to continue in our struggle against the negative forces of this world. The challenge of Citius, Altius, Fortius (faster, higher, stronger) are concepts that stir greatness within us. And yet, the Apostle John reminds Christians that greatness comes not from who we are in the world’s eyes, but who we are in God’s eyes because of our relationship with Jesus Christ. (1 John 4:4-6) The Olympic Creed states, “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.” However, as those who have put our faith in Christ Jesus, we are a people who are “more than con-

NoP Postnikoff

Gertie (Sis) Postnikoff (Beasley) passed away peacefully in Victoria on February 2, 2014. Gertie was born in Princeton, B.C. to William and Martha Beasley on October 28, 1926. She grew up and attended school in Grand Forks where she met her future husband, Pete. After their marriage, they moved to Trail where they resided for over 60 years. Surviving her is her loving husband, Pete; her two sons, Peter (Brenda) and David (Gaylene); her grandson, Ryan and great-grandchildren, Estella and Gavin. Gertie was a very watchful mother of her two sons. When they were toddlers, she put jingle bells on their shoes so she would always know where they were. For over 40 years, Gertie enjoyed the summers at Christina Lake and all the friends that visited. “My dear Gertie wherever you are I will find you.” Flowers gratefully declined, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

David (Dave)

Watts

1935 - 2014 With “Joy” in our hearts, we gratefully remember the beautiful being that was “our” beloved husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. His heart was pure, kind and compassionate in his dedication and love for humanity. Forever sharing that incredible twinkle in his eye. Dave stood strong for what he believed in, his integrity, and his incredible work ethic. His transition took place on Tuesday, January 7th. 2014 in Grand Forks, B.C. David is survived by his wife Judy, 6 children; Stephen (Kim), Stuart, Jamie (Wendy), Wayne (Angela), Kristina (Andrew), Jamie; 13 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren (and 2 more on the way!); brother-in-law Brian and Sister-in-law Lillian, 2 nieces Sheryl and Kim, 3 great-nieces and one great-nephew. David was born to Mary and Walter Watts on September 24th. 1935 in Haddington, Scotland. He immigrated to Canada in the late 1960s to begin a new life and his position of Farm Manager at the Variety Farm Training Center for the Developmentally Challenged in Ladner, B.C. In 1978 he and Judy relocated to Pender Island B.C. where Dave did Homemaking, Gardening, and Security. From there he and Judy became full-time RVers for 18 years, finally settling here in Grand Forks, B.C. Dave became very involved in the community as Chairman of the Grand Forks Public Library, President of the Friends of the Library. He mentored the students at Perley Elementary School with the reading program, as well as working with 2 young men at the Library through a literacy program under the direction of CBAL. A Celebration of Dave’s life will be held at the Seniors Centre on Summer Solstice, June 21st, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations would gratefully be accepted to Dave’s pet project, helping young preteen girls in becoming self empowered, by raising their self-esteem and confidence through a literacy program called “Girls Eye View” with Sheila Dobie and CBAL.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING WHEREAS Section 890 of the Local Government Act requires that a Public Hearing be held prior to the adoption of a Zoning Bylaw amendment.

WEST KOOTENAY WEST KOOTENAY

Proposed Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1539 would amend the Electoral Area ‘D’ Zoning Bylaw No. 1299, 2005 by: - adding a new zone “Agricultural Resource 1A“ (AGR 1A) which would allow a “Kennelâ€? to operate as a permitted secondary use. There already exists an “‘Agricultural Resource 1â€?’ (AGR 1) Zone and there would be no changes to it. The new AGR 1A Zone would keep all the permitted uses allowed in the AGR 1 Zone, and adds “Kennelâ€? as a new permitted secondary use. A â€?Kennelâ€? is a building, structure, compound or group of pens or cages where dogs, cats other domestic pets, or exotic pets are, or intended to be, trained, cared for, bred, boarded or kept for commercial purposes. The Area ’D’ Zoning Bylaw permits a kennel in the Agricultural Resource 1 Zone only by rezoning. The Regional District Board of Directors will approve a rezoning to permit a kennel if they consider it is in the public interest. In considering a rezoning application, the Board will consider the proximity of the kennel to other land uses in the area, the potential noise and visual impacts, and other matters they deem relevant. If approved, the proposed amending bylaw will allow a kennel on the subject property (see map below) and rezone the subject property from “Agricultural Resource 1â€? to “Agricultural Resource 1Aâ€? Zone. This zoning amendment is speciÂżc to this one parcel, and does not rezone any other parcels.

Making great leaders

STAFF

Grand Forks city councilor Cher Wyers is bringing the Canada-wide Head Start for Young Women program to the City of Grand Forks. The one-year pilot program is offering the opportunity for young women aged 16 to 24 to come together and guide them to identify and address key barriers that they perceive prevent their participation in local government and community life. As a group, the participants will create and implement a project that addresses their identified barriers with the support of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ (FCM) Melissa Newitt, program coordinator. The six groups from across Canada will be encouraged to network with one another via social media and share their ideas with a goal to present their final projects to the FCM membership in 2014. The program offers young women leadership guidance with the inclusion of local women professionals offering to mentor throughout the project and share their personal experiences giving valuable insight to the many career choices available in either running a community or as a political leader. For more information, contact Cher Wyers at 250-443-1476, email cwyers@ grandforks.ca or visit the FCM’s Head Start for Young Women Program at http://www.fcm.ca/home/programs/ women-in-local-government/head-startfor-youngwomen-program.htm.

The province’s decision to amend a recycling regulation causing substantial concern among the business community has been met with much relief by the local business community, says the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce’s executive director. James Wilson said the regional chamber applauded the province for listening to B.C.’s chamber network and amending a recycling regulation so that it will impact less than one per cent of B.C.’s businesses. “This change exempts the majority of our local businesses, including all of our Mom and Pop shops, from new costs and red tape,” he said. The regulation targets packaging and

Budget Continued from Page 1 “We presented them (to council) after we graded them all internally based on three criteria: strategic, financial and opportunity,” said Sasha Bird, manager of development and engineering. The city has several projects that they will be undertaking this year including the

printed paper (PPP) and is slated to go into force in May. The B.C. government has announced that it will enshrine in regulation an exemption for any B.C. business that meets any of the following criteria: • annual revenues of less than $1 million; • less than one tonne of packaging and printed paper produced annually and/or • a single point of retail sale (and not supplied by or operated as part of a franchise, chain or under a banner). That means that less than 3,000 businesses in the province will be captured by the regulation, out of more than 385,000. Wilson said the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce supported the principle of extended producer responsibility (EPR), which aligned with B.C. business values, but cautioned that

multi-utility project on Third Street, 22nd Street and 68th Avenue. “They’re being designed right now and they’ll be shelfready for when the grants are announced,” said Bird. “We’ll apply for the grants and if we get them we’ll go forward, and if we don’t we won’t.” Bird said the city told the residents before the referendum on the project that they would not borrow money for the project unless they re-

EPR programs need to be implemented carefully to avoid unintended consequences. “This exemption correctly balances environmental goals with business needs,” Wilson said. “We applaud the B.C. government for responding to businesses’ concerns and limiting the scope of the program.” The chamber network throughout B.C. raised the alarm about the regulation last summer after businesses across the province were contacted about coming new obligations and fees by Multi Material BC (MMBC), the agency charged with producing a stewardship plan under the regulation. “It became clear that this regulation would have unintended fallout for businesses, and particularly small businesses, across B.C.,” said Wilson.

ceived the grant to go with it. The multi-utility project would mean the city would replace the sewer, water, storm drains and roads for each street. Bird said, overall, the roads in Grand Forks were pretty good. “We had a road condition assessment done in 2012 so it varies,” she said. “Some roads are pretty good, some aren’t bad and some are worse. It depends. Sixty-eighth Street

is our second main route into town so that gets used the most. Twenty-second Street is the road to the hospital so that gets used. Third Street is downtown and it’s in pretty bad condition.” The new tax rates for residents will come into effect after the plan has passed. “We have to have the tax rates passed by May 15 and we have to have the financial plan passed before the tax rate,” said Shepherd.
