Doctors ‘closer’ to taking patients

Farmers’ market returning Saturday

Physicians who were locked out of Osprey Medical Clinic on Jan. 31 are hopeful that they once again will be able to schedule appointments for patients soon. “We don’t know exactly when we will be able to take appointments, but I’m optimistic that we are getting closer,” said Dr. Tara Guthrie last week. She said an agreement for temporary space is being arranged and an announcement will be made as soon as possible. Guthrie said on Tuesday morning that the doctors had nothing new to report, but information about them being able to take appointments could become available on Wednesday. Guthrie and two other physicians, Raphael Elemuo and Susan Hopkins, learned late Jan. 31 that the clinic was closing and not expected to reopen. The doctors said the clinic owners breached their contract. One of the clinic owners, Ken Gadicke, told the Advance Feb. 3 that the clinic and physicians had been unable to negotiate a way to make the business “self-sustaining”. “We are meeting with the lawyers for the doctors [on Feb. 7] to come to some sort of resolution and do not wish to comment further at this time,” he told Global News via email last week. See DOCTORS, page 2

If you’re in need of a farmers’ market fix, Saturday is your lucky day, when the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market launches monthly markets leading up to the beginning of its summer season in May. The monthly markets, running 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Feb. 15, March 8 and April 5 at Rotacrest Hall, follow up on the popularity of the Spring Beginnings market held last March. Nineteen vendors are already confirmed for Saturday, offering products including meats, crafts, plants, seeds and juice. As well, shoppers can enjoy a pancake breakfast with coffee and tea. “I think that’s a good way to start any Saturday,” said manager Martha Boland. On the first Saturday in May, the market, operated by the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition, will return to the lot behind the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce for a second season. And it will be doing so with a new manager at the helm, or at least a temporary one, with Boland taking a break for maternity leave. A full application for the job, which closes Feb. 21, can be found at www.crestonfoodaction.ca. “It would be great to find somebody local who is already interested in the farmers’ market or food security,” said Boland.

The Creston Valley Public Library’s Living Books speaker series is a way for community members to learn from each other. Living “books” are real people, your friends and neighbours, volunteering to share aspects of their own “story”. Through living books, the library seeks to encourage the sharing of knowledge and passion between people. Each month the library hosts a gettogether where a member of your community shares their personal experiences. Topics are varied, from art to travel to local history to coping with loss, and everything in between. Attendees of

the speaker series learn more about the people in their community and their diverse backgrounds and expertise. Armstrong presents her own story time at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Creston Valley Public Library. For more information, call the library at 250-428-4141. •••

7-9. These clinics are being offered at no cost to registrants. Much of the feedback received by CVYSA from locals is that they would like to coach or assist with coaching but they simply do not feel knowledgeable enough about the game or feel their repertoire of skills and drills is too limited. These free clinics solve that problem. BC Soccer is travelling the province to provide local soccer associations with much needed support to help communities build their soccer programs. Creston is fortunate to be on the list this year. (More typically, these clinics are held in larger centres and cost upwards of $140.)

Space for each clinic is limited but minimum numbers must be met to ensure the clinics are not cancelled. Go to www. crestonvalleysoccer. com for more information and to register. •••

From page 1 One barrier to reuniting the physicians with their approximately 3,000 patients has been access to the patients’ medical files. “We now have access to the system, so that’s really good news, a big help,” Guthrie said after learning that Osprey had not locked the doctors out of the digital patient file system. “We don’t know how long that will last, but we are working through how to make our access permanent.” Guthrie said that recent test results and prescriptions are being kept up to date on the electronic files, so doctors will be able to reschedule patients who have had recent tests and illnesses. The Advance will work with the physicians to keep patients informed as more information becomes available.

Audience to vote for favourite singers

LOCAL neWs

www.crestonvalleyadvance.ca 3

BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor The audience will once again decide the fate of up to 30 singers performing in the quarterfinals of annual Creston’s Best Singer contest on Feb. 20 at the Prince Charles Theatre. The first 150 to arrive will receive a scorecard to rank the singers, and the top 20 will be chosen to perform in the semifinals and, potentially, the finals on March 13. “The audience really enjoys that interactive aspect of the contest,” said producer Vern Gorham. “It’s satisfying to know that they have a hand in deciding who gets to move on.” Gorham started the contest in Creston in 2010, and expanded to include other east and west Kootenay towns in the following years. Regional contests were held in Cranbrook in 2012 and 2013, which saw Cranbrook’s Trena Speers and Nelson’s Charlie Pears-Smith, respectively, named the winner. The 2013-2014 season is a bit simpler, though; winners have already been chosen in Nelson, and East Kootenay and West Kootenay contests will be held in the spring. The top two from Nelson and Creston, and the top five from east and west will move on to the Kootenays’ Best Singer finals, to be held in Creston in June. “The contests have been extremely popular,” said Gorham. “But streamlining the series makes it simpler for me to administer — plus it will allow singers to compete against others from outside their towns much sooner, which should make it more exciting for them.” Even after four years of running the contest, Gorham isn’t tired of hearing the singers compete. “I love music,” he said. “And it’s pretty amazing to hear so many styles from so many talented performers all in one place.” Tickets for the Creston’s Best Singer quarterfinals are available in advance at Black Bear Books. 2.8” x 4”

Ricky’s earns Rising Star Award BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

A few months shy of two years old, Ricky’s All Day Grill has earned the company’s 2013 Rising Star Award, presented annually to the franchisee that has shown the most improvement over the year. “It’s a compliment to all our staff,” said Melody Totten, who has been the restaurant’s manager since September 2012. “It’s a pat on the back from head office. We know they see we’re doing a good job.” Creston’s Ricky’s is one of about 20 in the South Alberta District (south of Red Deer), and the award was a pleasant sur-

From page 1 For those interested in local food production, the market is continuing its monthly meetings, held at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at the College of the Rockies. Each meeting features a presentation by a

prise for Totten and her staff, who pride themselves on customer service, as well as thinking outside the box, doing such things as occasionally hosting live music in the lounge, a local initiative rather than one franchise-mandated. “It adds to the atmosphere of the lounge,” said Totten. The award is based on a variety of criteria, not the least of which is customer feedback, which has been growing steadily more positive, particularly since kitchen manager Brad Sutherland arrived in November 2012, bringing both experience and a sense of familiarity for customers. “He’s been cooking in this town for almost 20 years,” said Totten.

Since the market moved from the Millennium Park parking lot — its home for several years — to its current, more visible location, about a third of the vendors have reported significant

Customer responses are a huge part of the restaurant’s success, said franchise district manager Sue Deschner, who visits the restaurant four or five times a year. Changes can’t be made without feedback, so she welcomes it all — good or bad. “Sometimes they give us a whole book of stuff,” she said from her Calgary office. The Rising Star Award, Deschner said, shows that the Creston team has gone above and beyond the call of duty. “They show a passion for the business, especially a passion for serving the guests and being hospitable,” she said. “It shows thanks and praise for all the hard work they’ve done to improve operations.”

sales increases. “We were surprised at how many locals didn’t know or forgot about us in Millennium Park,” said Boland. And because the market is now downtown, the organizers want to develop new way of working with downtown businesses. “The market does draw a lot of people and it would be

great to have downtown just as vibrant during those hours,” said Boland. “The more ways we can learn to give back, the better.” Customers, she said, are definitely pleased with the new location, with some even making donations to help beautify the market’s area. “It’s great to see that kind of ownership,” said Boland.

FRIENDS OF THE CINEMA

A shot from Velcrow Ripper’s Occupy Love.

Fierce Love Films

Film explores global crises through eyes of compassion CRESTON VALLEY PUBLIC LIBRARY

The Creston Valley Public Library is presenting the compelling documentary film, Occupy Love, on Feb. 21. Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?” Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening — millions of people are deciding that enough is enough and the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social

change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, indigenous activists at the Alberta oilsands, the climate justice movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action-oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein. Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes, a powerful cinematic experience that will leave audiences inspired. Occupy Love will be shown at the Creston Valley Public Library at 7 p.m. at the library. Admission is free. Running time is 96 minutes. For more information, contact the library at 250-428-4141.

On Feb. 17, Creston’s Friends of the Cinema presents Blue Jasmine, an American drama written and directed by Woody Allen and starring Cate Blanchett, Alex Baldwin and Sally Hawkins. The film centres on a Manhattan socialite, Jasmine (played by Blanchett), who falls into poverty and homelessness, then moves in with her sister and shares a blue-collar life. As Jasmine struggles with her haunting memories of a privileged past bearing dark realities she ignored, she tries to recover in her present. Unfortunately, it all proves a losing battle as Jasmine’s narcissistic hang-ups and their consequences begin to

overwhelm her. In doing so, her old pretensions and new deceits begin to foul up everyone’s lives, especially her own. Blue Jasmine has received over 21 film awards and over 36 nominations, including three 2014 Oscar nominations for best actress, best supporting actress and best writing (original screenplay). The film has received much praise from the critics, particularly for Blanchett, and the film has been compared to Tennessee Williams’ play, A Streetcar Named Desire. It has been a box office success and Friends of the Cinema is excited to be able to screen Sony Pictures Classice the film for a Creston audience at 7:30 p.m. at the Prince Alec Baldwin and Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine.

Wouldn’t it be fascinating to get a word count in the conversations generated by the recent closing of Osprey Medical Clinic? It’s been a while since we had an issue that affects so many and is of general interest to so many others. When I first heard rumblings that the clinic, home to three physicians who provide medical care for about 3,000 patients, might close, my radar went up. But I am an optimist at heart and I felt certain that the principals — three docs and two owners of the clinic — would iron out their differences. These are, after all, highly respected and well regarded members of our community. I have written stories about all of the doctors. It was a pleasure to introduce Dr. Raphael Elemuo and Dr. Susan Hopkins to readers when they chose to relocate to the Creston Valley. Both are here in large part because of a recruiting effort that reflects the spirit of co-operation that makes this such a great place to live. Dr. Tara Guthrie is a thoughtful, innovative practitioner who has made a tremendous contribution to her community. I have known clinic owners Ken Gadicke and Rick Minichiello for many, many years. The latter was our accountant when we operated a business and the former has been an associate in many community endeavours. I respect and admire them both. It is important to remember that, for all the emotion that has come into play, this is a business issue with the clinic owners on one side and the doctor-contractors on the

other. While we are all entitled to our opinions, there are only a small handful of people who have all the facts in this matter, and most of them have a vested interest.

This is the Life

Taking refuge in Zen path

There are three sets of precepts of moral behavior in Soto Zen Buddhism: the refuge precepts, the three great precepts and the 10 grave precepts. When we take the refuge precepts, we commit to awakening from the confusion that has been caused by the familial, social and religious conditioning that entwines us in a net whose threads are composed of the problems of pain, pleasure and point of view. In our attempt to solve these problems we develop allegiances to various approaches to self-discipline, to ethics and to a spiritual path. We explore all kinds of rationales, taken from various traditions and philosophies. We may try to combine them or we may continue shopping for the one right approach. This results in personal conflict that arises from wanting to have the best. When we take refuge, we end this shopping in the spiritual supermarket and decide to stick to a particular practice for the rest of our lives. In taking refuge, we commit ourselves to a path that offers a simple and extremely economical approach. The Zen path was strategized, designed, and well thought out 2,500 years ago by the historical Buddha. Taking refuge means committing to

that path wholeheartedly. We make a deep commitment to stop picking and choosing. This saves a lot of money, a lot of energy and a lot of superfluous thinking.

A

Zen's-Eye View Kuya Minogue

Perhaps this approach may seem repressive, but it is really based on a sympathetic attitude towards our situation. It is only possible to realize our innate enlightenment when there are no sidetracks, no exits. Usually we tend to look for something new to solve our problems: a change in society or politics, a new diet, a new theory. Working on oneself, without such exits or sidetracks, is the Zen path. Taking refuge is a total commitment to oneself. It’s a commitment to working with the inherent sacredness, richness and the magical aspect of each moment. And this has to be done in the mundane activities of daily life. There are no scapegoats. When you take refuge, you become

responsible for yourself. The world is no longer regarded as a source of salvation. It may entertain you, play music for you and dance for you, but the path and the inspiration of the path are up to you. You have to do it. And the meaning of taking refuge is that you commit yourself to doing it. Taking refuge means dropping the belief that because we were born condemned, we have to be saved. It means understanding that humans have never been condemned — except by their own confusion. Taking refuge means you no longer have to be confused. Your path is now clean-cut, definite, precise and very clear. By taking refuge, you join a wisdom path that has existed for 2,500 years without interruption. It is very direct and very simple. Suggested practice: Contemplate where you find refuge. Is it in material comfort, fun activities or an external power? How would you describe your path of practice? Kuya Minogue is resident teacher at the Creston Zen Centre and will be offering classes on the 16 precepts of Soto Zen Buddhism at 7 p.m. on Thursday evenings from Feb. 27-April 17.

Creston Valley Advance Thursday, February 13, 2014

No place for insults in fire protection debate To the Editor: As a long-term resident of West Creston, I am pleased that certified fire protection for my community is now one step closer as a result of the recent petition process. Yes, I am willing to pay for reduced risk. My lower insurance rates will be an added bonus. Loss by fire is devastating, and family members and friends who have witnessed the results of it, either in Barriere or West Kelowna and the Blue Mountains of Sydney would not wish it upon me or my neighbours. Increased fire protection in a forested hillside community that can be subject to dry summer conditions is simply common sense, they argue. However, recent misleading and inflammatory letters to the editor were cause for concern. Both Frank Belavy and Vladimir Certik (Feb. 6 Advance, page 7) opted for emotional personal attacks over logic in their separate efforts to express displeasure with the result of a democratic process. I worry that some ill-informed readers may be misled by their negative metaphors, allusions (such as “knives sticking out of innocent backs”) or big words. I worry that others may see sensational insults as acceptable press. In particular, one reference by Mr. Certik demands a response. “Fake firefighters”, his glib title, I presume, for our West Creston volunteers, seems an unwarranted and mean attack. These well-meaning men and women sought to prevent loss in our area. They generously gave of their time to explore fire protection options, access funding, locate and expand equipment, complete training courses and improve callout communication. They started from scratch when they saw a safety gap in our community and worked hard. They attended 33 local fires, including one only 100 metres from my own property. I thank them all. So yes, opinions will differ and not all members of a community will be happy with the results of a petition or referendum. Yes, Canadian society allows for freedom of expression and a community newspaper should reflect varied views. But unnecessary name-calling and misleading attacks are unacceptable. Logic and reason should prevail. Insults should have no place in healthy community debate. Margaret Miller West Creston

Happiness, freedom are true wealth To the Editor: (Re: This is the Life: “Citizens Rise Up”, Jan. 16 Advance) Lorne Eckersley writes that Creston is among the poorest of communities in our province. This is

OpiniOn Line

news to me, but Lorne knows Creston and its people much better than I do. Up to this point, I was under the impression that Creston is one of the better-off towns in Canada. To me, the Creston Valley and Creston are among the richest and blessed places on this beautiful Earth. And here is why. Where in the world does one find all these wonders of nature, a valley bottom with the best fertile soil and yearround weather that most people in Canada would love to have? A huge lake that is open all winter and that has never been frozen over attracts fishermen from many places. I always have and still do meet very friendly people. We have a very active arts community and theatre group. The numerous volunteer groups are the heart of this community. I am thinking of the great work people like the Gleaners are doing, and the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors or Therapeutic Riding Program, to mention just a few. People are helping each other daily. I can go on and on. There are some not so well-off people like anywhere else, and I believe they are better off living in Creston than anywhere else because so many good and caring people step in when help is needed. We came to the Creston Valley 32 years ago and had the best and happiest years of our lives even though we earned a lot less income than we did in Calgary. But then, what is more important, material wealth or happiness, or is it maybe a little bit of both? Can we learn from that little country Bhutan about their way of organizing wellbeing as a measurement of the wealth of their people? I am ready and very happy to spend the rest of my life here in this most beautiful place on Earth. If it is, as Lorne Eckersley writes, one of the poorest communities in B.C., so be it. It seems to be also the one with the happiest people. Happiness does not come in dollar bills but from strong social networks, meaningful employment, health, political and religious freedom, and the absence of corruption. Henry Dahle Creston

All residents need access to doctors

To the Editor: (Re: “Doctors Locked Out of Osprey Medical Clinic”, Feb. 6 Advance) I would like you to understand one thing. I am over 50 years old, and I have been looking for a doctor in this area of B.C. for eight years. I have been told that you cannot just walk into a medical clinic, so obviously our health means no more than dirt on the street. We all have a history that needs to be taken care of. With people that want to or a situation that wants to run doctors out of this town, we are left with an unacceptable situation. We as a family think that this is outrageous. We are paying health care premiums but we have no access to health care. People who are starting a practice to help the community and bring doctors to this area should not be in business if all it is to them is a financial investment. I, myself, as a 55-year-old who cannot get any kind of care in this area because of the doctor shortage in Creston and Cranbrook, will commit myself to protest throughout this country. These people that are not looking after or supporting our doctors and nurses but looking only for money as opposed to looking after people’s lives and health cause everyone to suffer. To anyone that feels the same in this situation: I would like to start a petition to the government of Canada. It is not acceptable to have to sit in emergency for three hours just to have a prescription refilled. Dwight Hazen Yahk

Valley should Local gov’ts be in Pacific can help with time zone clinic closure

To the Editor: I would like to comment on the closing of the Osprey Medical Clinic as I was one of the patients who had their appointment cancelled. I dispute the position taken by the local governments that they have no role to play in this issue. We are talking about the well-being of the residents of this community. It was a civil dispute until the locks were changed while one person was still in the office. That means the owner or owner’s agent took the law into their own hands, inconveniencing many people with no notice. The doctors retained legal counsel, so it was up to the owners to do the same and resolve the matter without the media knowing about it and people being inconvenienced with no notice. Many property disputes arise because one side takes the law into their own hands, cresting bad feelings, when using legal counsel would avoid many problems. An example would be

To the Editor: So, we are all going to have lower hydro bills and conserve more energy by adopting daylight time? I think not. The opinion expressed in the letter “Hydro Bills Lower with Daylight Time” (Jan. 23 Advance) has a major flaw. If we adopt mountain daylight time, we will consume more energy because air conditioning units will be in use one hour later than they are when we are on mountain standard time. I do not believe that burning two or three “energy saver” bulbs would give us anywhere near the amount of electricity required to run an air conditioning unit. To be fair, air conditioning would likely be turned on earlier, resulting in, at best, zero energy conservation. If we are going to make a change, the logical one would be to use Pacific time — daylight in summer and standard in winter, thereby conforming to at least 90 per cent of the province. However, in my opinion, our present time solution is the best possible solution for our geographic location. Jack Falk Creston

Consider This Vladimir Certik

Thursday, February 13, 2014 Creston Valley Advance

Trouble and turmoil have value

One fellow of old wrote, “Consider it pure joy when you face various trials and temptations.” This statement has been puzzling me for a good two decades. I personally have yet to see someone who likes troubles. No, I am not talking about a fool who brings troubles on his head. I have in mind everyday men and

women who live through rain and sun, storm and fun. What keeps people going when there is nothing to hang on to? What’s the value of it? As crazy as it sounds, the end of all troubles, the ones that do not destroy or kill, brings forth positive growth. With the right attitude and with the

help of a trusted, caring friend (that includes pets), one will inevitably grow in knowledge, understanding, wisdom, resilience, patience, and the ability to tackle similar problems easier and faster, coming out of it with stronger spine and a steadfast heart. See CONSIDER, page 11

doesn’t go in quite that fast. I order seeds when the fall nursery season winds down. A lot of flashy new catalogues came out this past year highlighting new vegetable varieties. Many bedding plant growers south of the border are dropping flower producDavies tion to grow edibles. Of course, we are still a few months away from actually planting seeds in the earth. Ironically, the retail seed racks just came off the truck this morning.

Learn from those who prevailed. You will find examples to follow. Allow me to share one particular problem: the kiss of Judas, or backstabbing. I’ve had plenty of it in the past and have it at the moment, but what changed is this: It does not take forever to get out of it. There is an almost universal way out: Become a brother’s keeper of your backstabber. Let him (or her) know that you are not Abel waiting to be slain by Cain, but that you will watch your back. Assure him you will always be there for him if he changes his ways. There is a red line, though, a reprobate mind — twisted, insidious, denying, lying, manipulating, with backstab2.833" x 5"

If you have a greenhouse, you may still want to wait for higher light levels later in the spring before planting. The way the wind has been blowing I might delay seeding this week’s complement of seeds until the weather breaks. It is hard to keep the temperatures up in the greenhouse with all the wind. The whole trick to germinating seeds is to have the temperatures just right and not have the seeds too wet for too long. This combination varies for almost every crop, so in the propagation greenhouse we look for warmer and cooler spots to keep everything happy. When deciding when the best time to seed a crop is, I

look at how long a crop will take to flower and this is measured in weeks. For pansies, it might be 15 weeks to flower. These flowers need to be growing within a few days of the new year or they won’t be ready for sale in mid-April. Pansies are frost tolerant, so they are sold early. Marigolds are targeted to flower for week 19 or 20 after the danger of frost. So to recap, the year is broken down into weeks starting with week one (seed the pansies). Seeds are placed into clean trays with new peat-based growing mixes. Small seeds need a fine mix so they won’t fall too far down. Some seeds like the light and other need darkness to germinate. To cover these seeds that like darkness, I use a light coating of vermiculite. Once the seed imbibes water, the enzymes inside start to change the seed. The first tiny root, known as the radical, emerges and should find its way down while the seed leaves then work themselves free of the seed coat and grow up. Keep seeds relatively moist when the root is emerging and mist them regularly until the seed coat falls off. Then dry them down a bit. These processes can take as little as a few days in the case of large cucumber seed to as long as three weeks for tiny begonia seed. I generally move the newly seeded trays off the germination table,

which is heated to 25 Celsius and over to a cooler table under supplemental lighting. Cooler temperatures combined with extra light help keep seedlings compact. Plants benefit from light in the blue and red spectrums more than the others. Not all light is equal. Seedlings are very efficient at taking up sunlight but this time of year we can be socked in with valley fog, hence the lights to keep everything growing on time. Fertilizer is added to a barrel of pre-heated water at the rate of 0.5 grams per liter to start. The water temperature out of the tap has burned seedlings in years past — it is that cold. I try to let them dry down as much as possible before soaking them in again. Damping off is a catchall phrase for several varieties of fungi that kill seedlings. It can make its appearance at this time of year if you are not careful. This is where using sterile trays, growing mix and clean fresh water pay off. I usually bleach the tables and trays before the first seeds are sown. Weeds are removed from the floor of the greenhouse to prevent overwintering insects, as well. That’s all for now. Keep your eyes open for the new and unusual varieties this year. There looks to be some really neat ones! Evan Davies owns Beltane Nursery at 2915 Highway 3 in Erickson.

Unusual bird residents spending winter in valley

One very frosty morning in January, I was on a snoop for the common snipe. Now, if serious birders were out looking for them in the dead of winter or

lands, swamps, bogs and along small watercourses. However, in late fall. when available food diminishes with the closing over of waterways under a firm layer of ice, someone looking for that long-billed bird of the fen would be hard pressed to find one. So, the trees were covered Ed McMackin with heavy hoarfrost and, while the sun even on the Christmas Bird was still coming up from behind Count, if they found any at all it the mountain at mid-morning, wouldn’t likely be more than the snow crunched under my one or two. Snipes nest all over feet and my breath hung heavy the valley, in marshes, meadow- in the air. Where were those

Out There

long-legged snipes or were there even any here? I avoided approaching the brook’s bit of open water for fear of startling a bird into a sudden flight to a place out of sight. With binoculars, I began searching the area from the left, working upstream to the right. I didn’t find a bird. Every little tuft of dead brown grass looked like a snipe. That was with fogged up binoculars. I thought I had better start again and recheck every clump of grass. Yes, there was one standing in the freezing water at the edge of some frozen protruding moss and mud, topped with a tuft of grass. Then, not far away, I spotted a second and a third standing motionless like a tuft of grass in dead air. Gary Breault

The continued search was not productive, but that doesn’t mean these were alone. Snipes are very camouflaged in summer standing in the grass of a vibrant marsh, but these were nearly invisible. Now, just because I don’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there! Another unusual sighting here in winter is a western meadowlark. Again, on a frosty morning in January, the look is on. It means a trip to the cattle feeding areas or small cattle sheds. Let’s look around the feet of the cattle and try to locate one amongst those dozens of blackbirds. I have never seen a meadowlark on the back of a bovine; however, let’s check the backs of the cattle anyway, where one or two blackbirds may be perching. Another place to check is around the little shelters. They have been occasionally seen roosting on beams just under the shed’s roof. The last place I saw one in winter was on the flats picking up gravel along the highway’s edge. Other birds also find road edges a source of grit for the gizzard when other gravel spots are snow-covered. Both the meadowlark and the common snipe are summer residents here; however, another rare winter bird resident or visitor, is the northern hawk-owl. In 40 years here in the valley, I have observed about as many hawk-owls as I have snipes or meadowlarks, totals of which have been countable on one hand. I remember one cold, windy, wintry day, a little jaunt on Nick’s Island North Road. There were quite a number of large willow trees

between the river and the road, and the wind was blowing so hard the smaller branches were vigorously waving up and down (and I was waving from side to side). On one branch was a hawk-owl, leaning into the wind and appearing to be hanging on for dear life. Of course, that is humanly speaking. For the hawk-owl, this was probably business as usual, considering what it is used to. Anyway, a hawk-owl has been regularly seen this winter in these parts and hanging out around town where, like many birds, food and shelter are available. The hawkowl’s main menu is mice. Hawk-owls, something like pygmy owls but much larger, have a longish, narrow tail, which gives them a falcon-like appearance. That gives them a length of up to 14 inches. That would be a little longer than a Steller’s jay and a little shorter than a crow. Having a barred breast, it is a “barred owl” but not a barred owl. I guess it is more of an owl than a hawk because, in the name, “hawk” appears before owl. Perhaps, somewhere in the world there is an “owl-hawk”. (Enough of that.) The tail bobbing reminds me of a pygmy owl. Hawk-owls hail from Alaska and mid-northern Canada and rarely come and are seen this far south. I guess, though, if there were more people watching for them, a lot more would be observed. There is a lot out there, much more than we imagine or can imagine. We, except for a few of you I know, spend too much time inside rather than outside, and we miss the best and real show. Some of us have little control over that and may be limited to enjoying what’s out there through the window. With others, it is otherwise. Either way, referring back to our last meeting in Out There, “We are what we eat,” but also, “We are what we think.” Wholesome, plantbased intake (being a first-order consumer) enhances one’s health. Non-self-serving thoughts, thinking and practices, keeping others in mind, also enhance one’s health and well-being. So, keep on making better and better choices!

Thunder Cats lose two out of four BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Creston Valley Thunder Cats’ 13-game winning streak came to an end last week, when they played the Kimberley Dynamiters for a 4-4 tie, two nights before losing 3-2 to the same team in overtime. This allowed the Dynamiters, with 56 points, to pull slightly farther ahead of the Fernie Ghostriders, with 52, in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s Eddie Mountain Division standings. The Thunder Cats have 72 points, and have already secured the division’s first place. The Feb. 5 tie started out with two goals by Thunder Cats Brandon Formosa and Carson Cartwright in the first period. Those were answered by a Dynamiters goal early in the second period, followed by a third for the Thunder Cats by Ethan Rusnack, but the Dynamiters tied the score 3-3 by the period’s end, due largely to several undisciplined penalties from the Thunder Cats. “We ended up having to kill 16 of the 20 minutes in second period,” said head coach Josh Hepditch. The Dynamiters scored a fourth goal on a power play in the third period, and Formosa scored shorthanded to tie the game 4-4 with 8:14 left in regulation time. In two five-minute

overtime periods, neither team scored again. The game might have turned out worse without the efforts of Andrew Hodder, who had three assists, and goalie Brock Lefebvre, who made 42 saves. “He definitely stole one point for us, and almost stole two,” said Hepditch. On Friday, the Dynamiters visited Creston, handing the Thunder Cats a 3-2 loss, their first since Kimberley beat them 4-3 on Dec. 30. “They were kind of on a high after ending our streak, and we were on a low,” said Hepditch. “They came in and took full advantage of that.” The Dynamiters scored only once in the first period, but goals by Connor Kidd and Jesse Collins (unassisted) allowed Creston to edge ahead by the end of the second. The Dynamiters ended up sneaking past the Thunder Cats with two goals in the third period. “I think it was more of a blessing than a loss for us. A 20-game winning streak going into the playoffs wouldn’t have been good for us. It gets the guys back to reality and lets them know they’re not invincible.” On Saturday, the Thunder Cats visited Fernie, intending to win, and earning a 6-0 shutout. “The guys wanted to bounce back and send a bit of a message: Just because they lost one game, they weren’t going to

roll over,” said Hepditch. Creston’s Matti Jmaeff scored the first period’s only goal at 6:36, and Rusnack and Seth Schmidt (shorthanded) each scoring in the second. Rusnack started the third period’s scoring with a shorthanded goal at 18:32, followed by Marcel Fuchs (power play) and Livingstone. Goalie Kyle Michalovsky stopped 29 Ghostriders shots, and with his help, the Thunder Cats killed 10 penalities. The Thunder Cats hosted the Spokane Braves — currently struggling to pull into third place in the Neil Murdoch Division — on Sunday for a 6-5 loss in double overtime. Livingstone and Connor Ward each scored in the first period, but the Braves tied the score early in the second period, followed by Logan Styler (power play), then the Braves, then Livingstone adding goals for a 4-3 lead going into the third period. The Braves tied the score 5-5 with goals on either side of one by Hodder in the third, and then scored the game-winner just over a minute into the second overtime period. “We kind of faded as the game went on,” said Hepditch. “When we score five goals, we should win those games.” This weekend, the Thunder Cats host the Golden Rockets on Friday, then visit them Sunday, in games that could foreshadow the first round of the playoffs —

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

it was felt the price would be too high for compact SUV buyers. Drive As hard as it might be to believe, this new, larger and slightly heavier (49kg) Rogue is actually more fuel-efficient than the last model. They were able to improve the economy by 18 per cent through the introduction of a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), aerodynamic tricks, and letting the carried-over engine breathe a bit better. Still rated at 170hp, the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine does a good job in city driving, thanks to the gearing of the new CVT but can seam a bit underpowered for higher, passing manouevre on the highway. Overall, the person filling the new Rogue up with fuel will welcome this balance of efficiency and everyday drivability. As part of the winter driving experience, I drove on an ice course in Macaglisse, Que., to highlight the vehicle’s stability system and the Active Trace Control feature. On the first run, through the twisty, sheer ice roads the entire system was shut off. As I crested a hill, then made a hard right turn, the Rogue slid all

the way out to the edges of the corner, almost hitting the opposing snow bank. On the second run, with the advanced systems on, the same road was almost uneventful. The stability and traction control kept the wheels from spinning but the Trace Control System provides just a slight amount of brake force to the inside wheels to help the Rogue navigate the sheet ice with confidence. Verdict The objective with this new Rogue was to be noticed and provide a level of refinement and creature comforts that the competition isn’t providing. The pricing is fantastic, especially the middle SV models. The larger interior dimensions will always be welcome, as buyers like to get more for their money, but it is still small and efficient enough for city buyers.

The six coolest car names ever By Rob Sass Shakespeare famously asked, “What’s in a name?” • Mercury Marauder: The name conjures up bands of roving barbarians. In addition to providing basic transportation, who wouldn’t want a car that’s also proficient at looting and pillaging? • Ferrari 500 Superfast: Even in the early 1960s, using this name took cojones - something that Enzo Ferrari never lacked. It’s almost over-the-top comical, not unlike Wile E. Coyote’s business card, which listed his occupation as “Super Genius.” One can only imagine the response of today’s product liability lawyers to this one. • Ford Mustang: While the association with the car doesn’t hurt, the name Mustang was cool long before the car debuted in April 1964. Whether it’s

the war-winning fighter plane the P-51 Mustang or the wild horse, it’s just plain cool. • Shelby Cobra: As venomous snakes go, Cobras are wicked cool. The whole hood thing, their exotic origins and their highly concentrated venom make your ordinary rattlers and water moccasins seem, well, ordinary. It makes for one of the all-time great hood badges, too. • Plymouth Barracuda: As fish go, after the shark, the barracuda is arguably the most badass. Beautifully streamlined, highly aggressive and possessing a mouthful of piranha-like teeth, it’s possibly one of the most evocative names for a performance car ever. • Aston Martin Vanquish: Vanquish is generally defined as follows: To utterly defeat; soundly thrash or beat; to overpower, subjugate or subdue. Enough said.

PCSS boys second in volleyball tournament SUBMITTED

Two wins in three games gave the Prince Charles Secondary School Comets a runnerup finish in their home senior boys’ basketball tournament on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. Selkirk of Kimberley topped the fourteam round-robin with a perfect 3-0 record, with PCSS winding up 2-1 on the strength of victories against Stanley Humphries of Castlegar and Nakusp. Missing a pair of Grade 12 starters — Kieran Poznikoff due to injury and Riley Hills due to illness — forced coach Doug Dortman to give his bench more playing time, which should only benefit the team’s depth during its stretch run to the playoffs. “It was a positive outcome for the second-stringers,” Dortman said. “We got to run our plays and assess where they played the best. It was good practice for them. “Everybody on the floor scored in the last game, not just the starters.” A pair of Grade 11s promoted to replace Poznikoff and Hills among the starting

five — Donovan Osterreicher and Mitchell Bell — were named players-of-the-game in Creston’s first two matchups, including an opening one-point defeat to Kimberley in front of the student body Jan. 31. PCSS couldn’t hold a 14-point, thirdquarter lead in that one, though it was clinging to a one-point edge with 20 seconds left on the clock and possession of the ball. Dortman called a timeout to clarify the plan: inbound the ball and maintain possession until fouled or time expired, whichever came first. Instead, a shot was attempted not once but twice. Selkirk rebounded the second try with 15 seconds left and stormed down the court to sink the winning basket in a 63-62 upset. “You can’t write what I said. I couldn’t believe it,” Dortman said of the decisive turnover. “Hang onto the ball, pass it around a couple times and run the clock out. It’s frustrating.” The Comets still had 3.5 seconds to work with but a potential buzzer-beater fell off the rim.

Osterreicher netted 12 points for PCSS. The defeat snapped a six-game winning streak but the Comets promptly started a new one Feb. 1. Bell was player-of-the-game in an 83-22 blowout of Nakusp. “He played basically the whole game. He rebounded well, blocked out well and had 10 points,” said Dortman, who seized the chance to get more playing time for a couple of projected starters in the 2014-15 season, with most of this year’s lineup due to graduate. “(I’m) trying to get him and Donovan rounded up for next year too.” Jared Kuny netted 17 points in the first quarter alone on his way to a 28-point outing, including a handful of trademark three-pointers. Nonetheless, the outcome could have been even more lopsided. “We missed 42 shots in that game,” Dortman said. “I bet 20 of them were in the paint.” Osterreicher added 15 points and hit double digits in steals.

Sunny Oler earned player-of-the-game honours in an 86-56 romp over Stanley Humphries, contributing numerous rebounds and adding a few baskets of his own. The Comets expect to play a home-andhome series with Stanley Humphries plus a couple of games at Mt. Sentinel in South Slocan prior to their next tournament, Feb. 14 and 15 in Fernie, leading up to the East Kootenay AA championships in Golden the following weekend. Golden, Kimberley, David Thompson of Invermere and Stanley Humphries (crossing over from the West Kootenay, which doesn’t have any other AA teams this year) will be vying for a berth in the provincials. The PCSS Blue Stars, meanwhile, hosted a senior girls’ tournament on the weekend, dropping three games, including a narrow 43-41 decision to Nakusp. The Blue Stars also lost 67-33 to Selkirk and 66-28 to Bonners Ferry. Courtney Valer and Emily Simpson were high scorers for PCSS.
