Love, MLA, Grand ForksGreewnwood, was elected an honorary member of the B.C. division of the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association.

❚ The Way It Was

Mr. Love formerly published the Grand Forks Gazette, which four times won the leading trophy for being the best newspaper in its own class in Canada. 1949 The old Opera House built in 1899, gave up the ghost when the entire roof fell to the floor of the upper storey and forced the four walls of the building to bulge out precariously. Police cut off traffic and power was cut off in case more of the building collapsed. 1954 A former well-known resident of Grand Forks, George Hobart Gaw, passed away at the coast. He was the son of Robert Gaw, one of the city’s first mayors. 1959 The residents of Grand Forks and Greenwood district drank nearly half-amillion dollars worth of alcoholic beverages last year. Purchases totaled those made in Grand Forks and Greenwood stores and almost equaled the cost of education in the Boundary. 1964 The new school in west Grand Forks was named John A.

Hutton, who did much for education in this city. 1969 The Phoenix Alpine Ski Society has completed the lift installation near Phoenix. 1974 Trained and experienced homemakers working under supervision are now

Meth found on prohibited driver On Feb. 11 at 10:36 p.m. RCMP conducted a vehicle check in the Overwaitea parking lot and found a 23-year-old woman from Trail who was prohibited from driving. When she was arrested and searched, police located a small quantity of methamphetamine. “She is facing charges of driving while prohibited and pending charges on possession of a small amount of methamphetamine,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. Snowplow plows into tractor-trailer On Feb. 12 at 6:47 a.m., RCMP received a report of an Emcon snowplow hitting the side of a tractor-trailer unit. “The male driver and his female companion were putting on chains on the tractor-trailer when the snowplow hit the back of the trailer, doing a fair amount of damage,” said Harrison. “As a result, the snowplow driver was ticketed with failing to pass at a safe distance under the Motor Vehicle Act.” No injuries were reported. Breach of bail and B and E On Feb. 13 at 4:15 p.m., as a result of a complaint, police arrested a female for break and enter and breach of bail. A 45-year-old female from Grand Forks has been charged with break and enter to a residence on Gilpin Road and breach of bail conditions. “She had conditions not to attend that residence or contact the person who lived there,” said Harrison. She was kept in custody and appeared in Grand Forks court Tuesday. Suspended driver On Feb. 16 at 8:48 p.m., a constable conducted a road stop on Seventh Street near 64 Avenue and located a local male, 37, who was known to be a suspended driver operating a 2002 Chevy Malibu. “The vehicle was impounded under the Motor Vehicle Act and the person is facing charges of driving while prohibited,” said Harrison. Break-and-enter in Christina Lake At 11:30 on Feb. 3, RCMP received a report about a break-and-enter from a residence on Ritchie Road in Christina Lake. “The break and enter occurred some time between Jan. 4 and the date of the report,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “Five long guns were stolen from the residence. Neighbouring residences are vacation properties so they’re currently vacant.” The police are continuing to investigate. Anyone with any information can call Grand Forks RCMP or CrimeStoppers.

The meeting resumed shortly after with more questions and concerns about the water meter installation. Triveri added that it’s unethical for the city to use water as a commodity. Councilor Neil Krog stated that some of the concerns from the audience members were valid, but insisted that the meters were not part of any global conspiracy. He also added that the petition was the best one he’d seen in his time on council. After about two hours of questioning, councilor Michael Wirischagin introduced a motion to halt the water meter installation until there was more dialogue between the city and the residents. There was no second for the motion and thus it was not discussed, nor carried. Triveri thanked council for their time and the council chambers emptied in a hurry. Meeting post mortem “I’m part of a committee for a more democratic process that came about as a result of last council meeting (Jan. 27),” Triveri told the Gazette after the meeting. “We weren’t happy with what coun-

cil said at the last council meeting. They basically rejected our request off hand. So we thought we’d try to do something about it.” Triveri said the group got together and did some research and worked on canvassing throughout town to get signatures and feedback regarding the water meter installation. “We were able to get half the electorate who voted in the last election,” he said. “I think that’s a very significant number. That dispels council’s idea that there is wide-spread support for water meters when, in fact, there isn’t.” Trivera said the group is not against conservation; in fact, they are very much for it. “We’re 100 per cent behind conservation,” he said. “We don’t think council was really well informed in regards to this. They had one or two consultant reports and made their decision based on the two reports.” When he first heard of the program in 1999, Triveri wrote a letter to council urging them to really listen to the people and weigh the pros and cons of water meters. “The consultation process, in my eyes and the committee’s eyes, and the people who signed the petition’s eyes, did not take place, and as a result we have a decision made that we’re not happy with but we have to live with,”

he said. Triveri said it is council’s right in a democratic society to make bylaws for water meters, but that it’s also the people’s right to vote for a different council the next time. He said he is one of many who believe council and city staff did not consult enough with the residents before putting the water meter installation to tender last month. “It really came out (first) in the paper in November,” he said. “I wrote a letter to city council and cc’d the Gazette and it was printed at that time. “From November to January, they had the first council meetings and then they were already advertising the open house at gallery 2 which was to try to explain their rationale but they weren’t looking for input or discussion. There was absolutely no consultation. At least let the people decide.” Another coalition member, Julia Butler, told the Gazette that she thought council and staff failed in their attempt to include the people in the process. She also resented the residents being referred to as “customers.” “I think they have that backwards,” she said. “I think actually we’re the employer and they have forgotten that.”

he rain that came last week to California may have averted the beginning of a mass exodus to Canada. According to Richmond writer Giles Slade in his 2013 book, American Exodus: Climate Change and the Coming Flight for Survival, the changing climate in North America will inevitably create such horrible droughts that Americans and Mexicans by the hundreds of thousands will swarm into Canada, and there is nothing we can do about it. Thank goodness Mother Nature has temporarily postponed the exodus. Of course, Slade’s book is only one of a number of warnings about

our neighbours to the south. Others have written that the need for water in California and elsewhere in the U.S. will create a reason for military invasion of Canada. Then there are those who say that increased gun violence, genetically modified food, class/race warfare, and/or fear of the zombie apocalypse will send Americans scurrying across our border, bringing with them all the Yankee propensities and characteristics that we love: celebrity worship, unlimited political campaign contributions and cheap cheese, among others. There would of course be a few benefits of such an invasion. Gullible foreign workers would no longer fall victim to vicious human traffickers. The Snakeheads and Coyotes who sell vulnerable men and women into virtual slavery would find themselves out of business.

American and Mexican workers already work for almost nothing and therefore there would be no need to smuggle in cheaper labour into Canada. A related benefit for all the free enterprise conservatives would be the validation of their most deeply held belief. That is: The free market system, if allowed to work without restraint, leads to massive increases in wealth. Not for everyone, of course, but for the most worthy, a group that is easy to identify since in modern society one’s degree of worthiness corresponds almost exactly with the degree of extravagance with which one displays one’s wealth. Slade’s solution for Canadians is not to resist, but to go north and hide. Find a place to move the family and leave the south to the invaders. In this he sounds like

many U.S. politicians in the 1840s who wanted to annex almost all of what is now B.C to the United States under the concept of Manifest Destiny. “Fifty-four forty or fight!” was their cry, meaning that they wanted everything south of the 54° 40’ parallel or roughly Burns Lake. Lucky for us, the British didn’t give in. My neighbours homesteaded in Burns Lake 25 years ago; they tell me it’s nicer here. A better solution would be to build an eight-lane super highway from Washington to Alaska with government subsidized fast food outlets every 10 miles and no exits until it reached Fairbanks.

Water meters: the thin edge of the wedge

To the Editor: These proposed Grand Forks water meters are the thin edge of the wedge (locally) for globalist control of everyday people. There is presently a three-pronged globalist agenda designed to subjugate the people of this country: Initiating control over the nation’s water supplies by first metering; creating massive debt; and forcing governments to relinquish control. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency is presently engaged in activities on behalf of the United Nation’s Agenda 21 policies, to use the control of

water and to also control food production, gas usage and eliminate private property ownership. The same is underway in Canada. They use grant-style bribes as “bait” to push un-illuminated municipal servants to fall in line. Smart meters are just another issue from the same puppet masters. Agenda 21? A quick Google search will verify the Globalist plans for the ‘sheeple’ (the un-illuminated masses) using the UN to bully each nation to adjust their laws to suit said plans. Anyhow, what is the big rush with this council to get

these meters in before the election and the public realizes the far-reaching consequences? What do they have to gain by getting this through before election time? What is the real personal bait they’re biting on? No need to worry about Agenda 21’s plans to control water use, federally, provincially and municipally. That won’t help, but, as Noah Hutchins says, “God is still on the throne and prayer changes things.” So, better learn to pray. James Hamilton, Grand Forks

Let’s get on with the work of water meters To the Editor: I have read the article in the Gazette about water meters. I understand that the citizens may have some concerns about the meters but we should realize that this is the trend now. We must also be concerned about water conservation and the cost of supplying the water. In Grand Forks, we use approximately 723 litres per person per day. The B.C. average is 426 litres per person per day, and some other municipalities

already have meters. In the Okanagan many orchards are watered by municipal systems and their trees are not dying, and when I travel to other locations in B.C. I do not see dead lawns and bushes, and many citizens of those towns have nice gardens. I was told that washing cars and driveways does not waste water since it returns to the ground or evaporates to be recycled as rain. This is true, but there is a cost to the city and the

taxpayers to pump this water. Also every litre used inside the house has to be processed through the sewage treatment at a high cost. When I read a statement from Donna Semenoff about the danger of radiation from the meters, I think this is fear mongering as our homes have all kinds of electronic equipment such as cellphones, microwave ovens and many other such equipment. Also, I was told the reason for high water usage was due to leak-

ing infrastructure. It may well be. Then we should not be afraid of the meters since they will prove that we do not waste water and will show that we need to do some repairs to the system. So let’s get on with the work. This being said, it is hoped that when the installation is completed and it is proven that we do not waste water, we will not get more increases on our water or sewage bills. Paul Pinard, Grand Forks

Thumbs up to a helping hand

Thumbs up to all the big rig drivers with their new HID lights that follow people on the highway and change to their low beam, it is appreciated. Thumbs down to all those drivers who don’t. Thumbs up to the wonderful gentlemen, one being a city sander driver, who helped me get my truck out of a snow bank. Again the people of Grand Forks show me that acts of kindness are the norm for here. Thumbs up to the fellow that assisted me after I fell in front of Service B.C. office.

Conservation is the issue


hile some residents of the Grand Forks are railing against the city’s move to conserve water with the installation of water meters, residents of the southwestern United States are dealing with an unprecedented severe water shortage caused by a prolonged drought. Rain did come on Feb. 8, but the area is still in dire straights. The drought is so severe that Jerry Brown, governor of California, is calling on people to voluntarily cut their water use by at least 20 per cent. Homeowners in Los Angeles are being told to replace their lawns with dry land indigenous plants and they are being paid $1.00 per square foot of lawn to do so. Residents of Las Vegas are being asked to replace their lawns with desert plants and they are receiving $1.50 for every square foot of lawn that is replaced. Officials in charge of water services in the area say there is simply not enough water in the system to meet Rousing the needs of farmers, cities and conthe Rabble servation efforts. The future for the ROY RONAGHAN southwestern states looks grim. What is happening in California, Nevada and New Mexico has no direct bearing on Boundary Country residents but that is no good reason for those who live in the area not to implement conservation measures for an essential commodity. Grand Forks is blessed with an aquifer that has provided potable water for the city for many decades. It is easy to access and that is good reason for treating it with the utmost of care so that it is available in the future. The statement that the installation of water meters really means the city is in the business of selling water is not true. Doug Allin, chief administrative officer for the city has stated that the charge covers the cost of the distribution system--the maintenance of the wells, pumps, pipes and reservoir needed to supply households, businesses and industrial operations. The argument that property values will drop if there are no green lawns or flower beds is a red herring. Property values are destined to drop in the future, but they will not do so because there are no lawns or flower-beds. Lawns are high maintenance luxuries. They consume vast quantities of water and they require constant care. They must be mowed regularly, and if the mower is gas powered it creates carbon emissions. If they are to be kept super-green, they must be dosed frequently with fertilizers James Fish, author of a column in the Epoch Times (Florida) sums up the issues surrounding lawns very well. “So we waste precious water on non-arable land, dump millions of pound of chemicals into our groundwater, import non-native grasses, which often make wonderful habitats for pests and insects that couldn’t otherwise survive in that climate (and which thus have no natural predators). “This incites us to dump further millions of pounds of even more toxic chemicals all around our homes and on the lawns where our children play, and spend resources making fossil-fuel-powered implements of metal and plastic designed to maintain this totally artificial environment, and then spend all of our leisure time trying to reverse the natural order where we live.” The installation of water meters in Grand Forks is not the issue that should be under discussion; the issue is water conservation. If preserving and protecting the aquifer means that lawns will disappear and flower gardens will be scaled back then that is what must be done. Residents of Grand Forks use twice the average amount per household across Canada and that behaviour has to change. They don’t live in 17th century Britain, on an estate in early New England, or in Vancouver’s University area. Roy Ronaghan is a Christina Lake-based writer.

April Verch Band to play the GEM

Opening up the downtown


For a sneak peek inside the city’s downtown makeover, an open house is scheduled so residents can learn more about plans for phase two of the Downtown Beautification Plan. Hosted by the City of Grand Forks, 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.caDocument4.

April Verch was born to traditional music, in Canada’s hard working, hard dancing Ottawa Valley, yet the effervescent singer/fiddler is no stranger to blues, Latin music, Eastern European music, jazz and Americana. She started step-dancing lessons at the age of three and started violin lessons at six. By the age of 10 she knew that she wanted to do both professionally. Two self-released albums—1992’s Springtime Fiddle and 1995’s Fiddle Talk— appeared before she finished high school. College meant Boston’s Berklee School of Music and mastering more styles of fiddle playing. Within a year, the money had run out and Verch would move back to Canada, landing in Saskatoon, Sask., and country singer Tommy Hunter’s band. She became the first woman in history to win both of Canada’s most prestigious fiddle championships, the Grand Masters and Canadian Open; and when Canada hosted the

Chamber WeeK: Getting results for B.C. business By Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce

February 17, 2014, marks the beginning of Chamber of Commerce Week, an opportunity for Chambers of Commerce across British Columbia to showcase their hard work on behalf of business communities across the province. This year, Chambers are celebrating the theme of “Leadership in Action” – a theme which highlights the leadership Chambers bring to their business communities, working hard to enhance B.C. as a business-friendly jurisdiction with strong opportunities for all British Columbians.

And this leadership delivers results. Just this month, B.C.’s Chamber network, working in partnership with the B.C. government, was able to deliver a significant win for B.C.’s businesses: key, business-friendly changes to a recycling regulation that had caused concern in business communities across B.C. Thanks to the hard work of Chambers in B.C., working closely with a responsive government, more than 99% of B.C.’s businesses will face no red tape or fees under this recycling regulation, which deals with packaging and printed paper. And that’s just one of many positive changes that the Chamber network has led for B.C. businesses. Among many areas of impact, B.C.’s Chambers have been a key voice: • encouraging balanced budgets at all levels of government; • calling for solutions to B.C.’s skills gap; and • encouraging municipalities to actively support local economic development. As members of the BC Chamber of Commerce, Chambers throughout the province are part of B.C.’s most extensive business policy development process. This process brings B.C. businesses’ innovative ideas and on-theground insights to B.C.’s decision makers, and helps shape an ever more business-friendly province. Chamber network policies span from fiscal and tax policy to infrastructure to industry-specific issues.

We have reason to celebrate: Many pioneer women of the Boundary area had the foresight to bring rural women together for the betterment of the whole community and country. The motto of the Women’s Institute is: For Home and Country. Ladies of the Kettle River District include the communities of Bridesville, Westbridge, Rock Creek and Grand Forks. We also have members from other communities such as Beaverdell and Midway. We are under the umbrella of the provincial women’s institute and also belong to the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada and the Associated Country Women of the World. Women’s Institute was started in 1897 in Stony Creek, Ont. by Adelaide Hoodless as a method of educating rural women with the purpose of improving their lives through a better understanding of methods of treating raw milk and food preservation. Her hope was to raise the general standard of life for farm people. “A nation cannot rise above the level of its homes. We women must work and study together to raise our homes to the highest level possible,” Hoodless said. The B.C. Provincial Women’s Insti-

tute was formed in 1909 and Federated (Canada) in 1919. There are 1,000 branches distributed throughout the 10 provinces, a total of 13,000 members in Canada, and nine million members in 70 countries worldwide. We still carry on the legacy of those ideals started by the earlier pioneer women. Just to name a few: we contributed to B.C. Children’s Hospital; area hospitals and long-term care facilities are supported by our donations; donated to the Kettle Valley Bursary Fund; and made desserts for the Lions Easter Dinner. As well, we organized food and help for local funerals; supported the food program at West Boundary Elementary School; supplied food for the children’s Halloween party; made Christmas goodies for Rock Creek single seniors and Park View Manor; and catered to the Partner’s in Parenting conference. The Institute has organized and supplied desserts for the Canada Day celebrations, filled shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse at Christmas, supported the Children’s Class entries at the Rock Creek Fair, in addition to many volunteering their time and talents to the fair throughout the year, as well as sponsoring the Aggregate Children’s Trophy at the fall fair in Grand Forks. Institute women have made hand-

made quilts and raffled them off to raise funds for these events, supplied emergency kits to the Boundary Hospital and helped at the Rock Creek Rodeo. The Valentine’s Day Tea and Quilt Show is always a highlight of the year, as is the Christmas Craft Fair. I am sure there are many other events that I have forgotten to mention in each of the local areas. If you think that it is all work and no play, you need to attend one of our lively meetings. Of course, food is always the highlight of each meeting. We meet in area homes, halls or local restaurants. Topics of discussion include: agriculture, rural renewal and safety; Canadian industries and environment; citizenship and legislation; culture and education; economics and health, and international activities. In addition, we host an entertaining spring conference and fall workshop with guest speakers and craft presenters.

YOU AND YOUR MONEY Tips to investing in RRSP’s Let’s start with an obvious but important question. What is an RRSP? You may know that RRSP stands for Registered Retirement Savings Plan. But it’s easy to be confused about what that really means. If you think you buy an RRSP, you wouldn’t be the first person to make that mistake. Actually, you buy investments -- mutual funds, stocks, bonds, guaranteed investment certificates, annuities, etc. -- and register them with the federal government. When you retire, you’ll be able to use the money that comes from the investments.

Is it a good idea to invest in an RRSP?

Looking for ways to save for your retirement? With an RRSP you can make contributions and watch interest grow tax-free. Together we can discuss how you can save on taxes with an RRSP today. Let’s talk about Money for Life™.

The simple answer is yes. Many people are putting their money in RRSPs because they’ve been told they can reduce the amount of income tax they pay. They think, “Okay, I’m getting this tax savings every year. It reduces my taxable income, so my overall taxes aren’t going to be as high.” For a lot of people, that’s a good enough reason to contribute to an RRSP. Paying less income tax has always been a good idea.

Life’s brighter under the sun

The Di$ability tax credit.

If you’re self-employed, you have another reason to invest in an RRSP. It may be the only way to save for retirement, since you probably aren’t working at a company that sets up pension plans for its employees.

What could it mean to me? The disability Tax Credit is meant to help with some everyday living expenses and medical equipment and is often missed by disabled Canadians on their tax return because they don’t realize they qualify for it.

We can help with the paperwork and answer any questions you might have about this often missed credit. Call or visit us:

7337 2nd Street, Grand Forks, BC 250-442-2928

Whatever your reasons, the most important thing you can do as far as investing in RRSPs is concerned is to start contributing regularly as early as possible. When you start early, you give your money more time to grow. Let’s say you’re 45 years old and put $100 dollars into RRSP investments every month. We’ll assume a return of 6% per year. At age 65, the total value of your investment would be $45, 344. Now, if you’re 25 years old and invest the same monthly amount with the same return, the total value of your RRSP at 65 would be $190,768. You can see how the extra two decades of investing makes a big difference.



SIMPLE, SAFE, SECURE“with You always”

Perhaps you’re thinking that you don’t have $100 to put away every HIGHEST month. Try investing in small doses by setting up a plan where your contributions flow directly from your bank account to your RRSP on the GIC RATES WWW.GICDIRECT.COM day you’re paid. A few dollars now will go a long way later. You’ll be “with You always” surprised at how quickly your RRSP will grow -- if you contribute regularly! Think about borrowing money to invest in your RRSP. At today’s low interest rates this can be a very effective strategy. You will reduce your taxable income and may increase your tax refund. Many people then take that refund and use it to help pay off their loans. Ask your advisor if this approach makes sense for you. Remember: the best thing you can do for your retirement fund is to put away the maximum amount allowed by the government. If you’re short, you can take out a “catch-up” loan. Or, you can carry forward your unused contribution to a future year. To keep track of all your assets, you may want to consider keeping them in one investment company. There are distinct advantages to this strategy. You’ll receive more effective advice because your advisor has access to your full financial picture. And you’ll be able to see all or most of your investments by looking at one statement. Nobody’s financial situation will be exactly the same as yours. That’s why your financial strategy should reflect your needs, desires, and goals. Professional money managers can help because they understand the complexities of the market. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from the pros! Submitted by Ogloff Financial

A film festival with a conscience returns to city LARRY HUDEMA

for the Grand Forks Gazette

B.C.’s largest, longest running international social issues film festival is back this weekend as the No Boundaries Film Club will be presenting the ninth annual Grand Forks screening of the World Community Film Festival from Feb. 21-23 at the Grand Forks Secondary School auditorium. The World Community Development Education Society (, based in Courtenay, has been holding the festival in the Comox Valley since 1990. In recent years they have introduced the Traveling World Film Festival to share the films with other communities in B.C. and across Canada. The opening film, Seeds of Freedom, challenges the mantra, promoted by the pro geneticallymodified lobby, that large-scale, industrial agriculture is the only means by which we can feed the world. It shows how small-scale farmers feed 70 per cent of the world, using less land and water, with a higher degree of sustainability. From there we sail in to the World Before Her. This Best Canadian Feature winner at Hot Docs examines a transitional moment faced by India. It features contestants in the Miss India competition and women enrolled in a militant fundamentalist camp. As usual there is a varied fare of documentary films covering a range of topics, such as Grow, which profiles a new crop of idealistic young farmers, and Greedy Lying Bastards, which details people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and who, exactly, funds them. There are uplifting, empowering films: Sweet Dreams, a story of Rwandan women who formed a drum troupe and ice cream business, and Camera Woman; Stand, a film with some superlative photography of the West Coast. I could list ‘em all: the couple on corporate/ economic “shysterism,” all the way to our closer, Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine, a tale about the sadly enduring tale of having to establish fundamental human rights. Okay, not done yet: Solar Momas, or how to overcome obstacles and achieve. Anyway, you get the point. These films show us, as global citizens, how we are more alike than different and that we all face challenges and that, though difficult, they are not insurmountable. For more information on this year’s films you


can check us out at our website We are also on Facebook. A pass is $20, low income is $10 and per session admission (morning, afternoon, evening) is $5 and $3, respectively. Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) students are free. And with that segue might I mention you might want to check out the student version of the film festival at the following site, http:// In case anyone who wishes to watch Greedy Lying Bastards but is unable to catch it Saturday afternoon, it will be showing Thursday at 7 p.m., the public is welcome. Admission is by donation and goes toward supporting the GFSS Global Citizens Club. I would be seriously negligent if I failed to mention the Boundary Peace Initiative’s snacks and lunches in the multi-purpose room. The lunches, particularly, are a great place to debrief after a good round of film watching or just idly enjoy the company of fellow filmgoers and very good borscht meals, as well as some delightful baking. Something I should mention is that the selection of many of the films was done with the assistance of a number of people who are on the No Boundaries Film Club e-mail list. This facilitates the selection process somewhat. John, Zak Eburne (a warm and thankful welcome to the new member of our film committee) and I would like to extend our thanks to those of you who took the time to do this.

“Those two go hand-inhand,” he said. “We’ll have to talk to the people about what that will look like in the future.” Animal control The RDKB has also passed first reading of Animal Control Bylaw at the Jan. 30 board meeting. Bylaw 1550 is new bylaw meant to replace current bylaws, set regulations for a pound and provide for the licensing of dogs within the area of the City of Grand Forks, Area D, Area C and the City of Greenwood. MacLean said the regional district staff put together the first draft of the new bylaw and residents are just beginning to take a look and offer their input. “The elected officials will have a chance to review the comments and make any revisions they need to make and we’ll get it adopted in the near future,” he said. Saddle Lake regional park The area is expected to possess another regional park. Plans were announced last week for the regional district to take over and turn Saddle Lake into a regional park. Last year the regional district announced it had taken

over responsibility for the Saddle Lake Dam, said MacLean. “We also announced that we had made a application to the province to take over the Crown land surrounding Saddle Lake,” he said. “Recently, we found out that we did get that 30-year lease and we are now going to turn that into the regional park that we always intended.” MacLean said RDKB staff recently completed the engineering, maintenance and monitoring plan on the land. “Now what we’re doing is putting money aside for water control level measures,” he said. The Saddle Lake Dam is a heritage dam that was built by Doukhobors back in the 1920s. Phoenix Ski Hill The Grand Forks Recreation Commission, which is a shared service between the City of Grand Forks and Area D, awarded a $20,000 grant to the Phoenix Ski Hill to help them with operating expenses. “The rec commission approved in the initial budget a line item for $20,000 for Phoenix for this year,” said Russell. Phoenix Mountain Alpine Ski Society (PMASS), which operates the ski hill, have had to scramble to raise funds to keep the hill going after the provincial gaming commission changed Phoenix’s categorization, making grant money unavailable until after the end of

the season. “Essentially, they would miss an operational season of funding through the gaming commission,” said Russell. “So they had some acute needs for funding for this season. Also, they’ve had a long-standing desire to establish a sustainable funding model moving forward.” Russell said that Area D, Area E, Area C, Midway, Greenwood and the City of Grand Forks are all actively looking at supporting a sustainable model for Phoenix. “But what that looks like is very much up in the air depending on which of those areas are involved,” he said. Russell said it looks like Phoenix should be in good shape for this year with the rec commission grant as well as money raised from the ski hill’s Snowflake fundraiser campaign, as well as ticket sales. “We’re looking at ways to design a model where money for Phoenix becomes a permanent line item instead of having to have it as new business every year,” said Russell. He said having a nearby, affordable ski hill is very important to the area. “It’s a pretty significant economic driver to the area both for attracting young families and retaining them as well as providing a recreation activity for local residents that is at a reasonable cost.”

Leggo my Lego at library this Friday


ere’s what’s going on at the library:

Lego Club Drop by the library on Friday, Feb. 21 from 1-3 p.m. for our monthly Lego Club! We got a brand-new bin donated last week to add to our collection—so look out for a whole bunch of new pieces. All ages welcome, and snacks will be provided. Book Club I’m going to break the first rule of book club, and talk to you about it. It’s not too late to swing by the library to pick up a copy and read the February book in time for our meeting at Christina Lake on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 1:30 p.m., and on Thursday, Feb. 27 at the library in Grand Forks at 7 p.m. The book this month is


The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, by Laurie R. King—a suspenseful novel in which a young girl pursues an apprenticeship with the most famous detective of all, a now-retired Sherlock Holmes. This is the first in a series of books—so if you like this one, there will be lots more to read! Winter story time Our weekly story time is held every Friday from 10:3011 a.m. We’ve got rhymes, songs, books, and felt-board stories. Everyone is welcome, not

just moms but dads too, as well as grandparents, daycares, caregivers, etc. And a reminder ... ... about some of the other wonderful programs that run continuously at the library: • We have an adult knitting and crocheting club that meets on Saturday afternoons from 1:15-2:45 p.m. (we provide needles and wool, but you can bring your own supplies too, if you like). • Our chess club is always happy to welcome new members—they meet on Tuesdays from 4-7 p.m., and on Saturdays from 3-4:30 p.m. • The genealogy group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. • The writer’s guild meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6 p.m.

The meeting is open to all members.

At the AGM Carol Lajoie, chair of the DBA, says the group will review all the highlights of the past year and look ahead to the future. “We really need membership to come out because we’re wanting direction on where to go this next year and we’re looking for some new board members,” she said. Lajoie said there are about 130 businesses downtown and she urged everyone to attend. The mandate for the DBA, which began in December 2012, is to improve and support a

Probably the most successful event the DBA has held was the Black Friday event in November, a whole community-wide sale which had a huge turnout from the public, said Lajoie. Lajoie said the board already has some events planned for next year that they will discuss including becoming more involved with the Park in the Park Car Show at City Park. “We’d like to organize some sort of midnight madness event that coincides with that.”

for the Grand Forks Gazette

On Tuesday, Feb. 25 Spotlight Films will be presenting Dallas Buyers Club, directed by Montreal born Jean-Marc Valee (C.R.A.Z.Y.) from an original screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack. It’s the mid 1980s and AIDS (HIV) is making its North American debut as a disease which carries a sentence of certain death. In this based-on-actual-events story, selfinterested, homophobic, heavy smoking, heavy drinking, coke snorting, racist and somewhat morally deficient electrician and sometime rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey, Mud) is diagnosed with HIV and told he is likely to die within 30 days. He doesn’t accept the accompanying death sentence and thrusts himself into a crash course of research which reveals a lack of approved treatments and medications in the U.S. He crosses into Mexico where he meets a “Dr.” Vass (Griffin Dunne, The Good Wife, TV’s Law and Order C.I.), an American physician whose license was revoked in the U.S. because of his AIDS related work against U.S. regulations and who introduces Ron to alternative treatments. Ron begins smuggling them into the U.S., challenging the medical community and his concerned physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Screen Actors Guild Winner Jennifer Garner, Juno). An outsider to the gay community, Ron finds an unlikely ally in fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Gotham Independent Film Award winner Jared Leto, Fight Club, The Thin Red Line, Lord of War), a transsexual who shares Ron’s lust for life. Rayon also shares Ron’s entrepreneurial spirit: seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, they establish a buyers club, where HIV-positive people pay monthly dues for access to the newly acquired supplies. Deep in the heart of Texas, Ron’s pioneering underground collective beats loud and strong. With a growing community of friends and cli-


ents, Ron fights for dignity, education, and acceptance. In the years following his diagnosis (apparently beyond his mandated expiration date), the embattled Lone Star loner lives life to the fullest like never before. Jared Leto, by the way, and as some might already be aware, is also rhythm guitar, vocal, and songwriter for the cult American platinum band 30 Seconds to Mars. A testimony to McConaughey’s dedication to cinema art is the fact he lost 49 pounds for this role. This is a very well done film with excellent acting, well deserving of Oscar consideration, and due to graphic depictions of some pretty racy sex, isn’t well suited for the mildly prudish. Dallas Buyers Club has won 41 awards, including Best Actor for McConaughey and Best Supporting Actor for Leto at the Golden Globes and is up for six Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor and Supporting Actor for McConnaughey and Leto and Best Editing for Valee. It is also nominated for 27 other awards. It received eight out of 10 on IMdb (Internet Movie database) and 93 per cent based on 201 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Dallas Buyers Club will be shown at the GEM Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thanks to Huggo. IMdb, and Rotten Tomatoes. Thanks also to Maureen and Marius Paquet of the GEM Theatre, and to our sponsors and patrons.

Jr. Wolves finish strong in Castlegar STAFF

Grand Forks Gazette

Grand Forks Secondary School junior girls basketball team finished second in the Damsels in the Castle Tournament in Castlegar on the weekend. The team opened up play against the host Stanley Humphries Secondary School Rockets on Friday. GFSS found themselves down 10-8 after one quarter, but promptly outscored their hosts 15-1 in the second quarter to pull ahead. The final score saw the Wolves win 52-22. “We had our traditional slow start,” said coach Craig Lindsay. “Once we got settled down and started working our press and rebounding we were fine. It was nice to see some well-balanced scoring.” Leading that balanced scoring for GFSS were three girls with 10 points each: Alyssa Makortoff, Sarah Heric and Jessica Moen. Chloe Skerritt added eight. Heric picked up player of the game honours. Next up for the Wolves was the top-seeded team in the West Kootenay: the LV Rogers Bombers from Nelson. Unfortunately, it was the Bombers that did the bombing as they crushed GFSS 53-27 led by 16 points from Allie Zondervan. “They have a good team,” stated Lindsay. “They’ve got a lot of height and some really good athletes. We struggled with their zone press and their

zone defence, both of which gave us fits.” LV Rogers threw out an aggressive trapping zone that the Wolves’ guard struggled against. They also sat in a 2-3 zone that GFSS just could not penetrate. “We’ll likely play them first in the zone playoffs,” said Lindsay. “So now we know what we can expect. It’s not going to be easy. They’re not going to get any shorter between now and then but if we can get past their initial trap on the press, we’ll at least have a chance.” Makortoff was named GFSS player of the game after scoring six points. Grand Forks ended the tournament with an easy 48-2 win over an out-matched Nakusp squad. Alyssa Makortoff and

Riley Steinbach led the team with 12 points each, while Alaina Condruk added seven. Steinbach received the Wolves team MVP for the tournament for her continued strong play at both ends of the floor. Charity Starchuk was the player of the game against Nakusp. “Riley stepped up and was able to play point guard as well as post when needed,” said Lindsay. “She has really improved her ball-handling and passing. She’s also able to fill in at other positions if need be. Starchuk also had a good game with some key steals and attempted charges taken.” Lindsay also praised the overall strong play of Makortoff who led the team in scoring in each game and was also able to fill in at post. He also touted the senior leadership of Heric and Skerritt. “It was great to be able to work on our zone offence against Nakusp,” he added. “We were able to skip the ball across the key and look inside to our posts. Something we really struggled to do against Nelson. If we can do that next time against them, and break their traps, we’ll have a chance to win.” GFSS’s next action is on Tuesday, Feb. 25 when the team hosts a playoff qualifier with Midway and Castlegar. The winner of that playday will qualify for the West Kootenay playoffs on Feb. 27 as the fourth seed.

With their play-off hopes gone, the Border Bruins hosted Spokane on Sunday with nothing but pride on the line. Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to help as the Bruins were dominated by their American opponents as they lost 9-4 in a penalty-filled game. Spokane held period leads of 3-1 after one and 6-3 after two before putting the game away with three unanswered goals in the last eight minutes of the game. Leading the way for the Braves was Adam Shaner with a goal and three assists. Scoring for the Bruins were Cam McLennan, Tucker Brown, Nathan Cory and Max Newton. McDonald went the distance in goal for Grand Forks, facing a barrage of 65 Spokane shots. The Bruins have three more games this season, with Creston Valley at home on Wednesday, Castlegar at home Friday, and Princeton on the road Saturday. Assistant coach and general manager Matt Zamec said that despite the team not making the playoffs, he was proud of the boys. “I’m really proud of the team,” he said. “It’s been a tumultuous season for them. They’re been some really good highs and some real lows. “As a junior B program, the thing we strive for is to provide these kids with a learning experience where they can grow.” With a mid-season coaching change that saw popular coach and general manager Nick Deschenes move up to junior A Trail, and injuries to key starters including team captain and leading scorer Jackson Purvis— who was out for a month with concussion issues—the Bruins certainly had a roller coaster season. After a 3-0 start that saw GF lead the league, the Bruins slid back to reality but were still decent and flirted with a .500 record for the first half of the season. The team struggled with

much this season it’s almost like two or three seasons packed into one. “It’s disappointing, obviously, that we didn’t make the playoffs again like we hoped.

Leafs, nitehawks down bruins It was certainly a valiant effort. The Border Bruins threw every thing they could at the division-leading Nelson Leafs in a home-and-home series that would be their last kick at the playoff can. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough, as the Leafs showed why they are in first place, taking both games by a combined three goals. The Bruins have gone winless in February with six straight losses. After a very promising start, the Bruins will once again watch the playoffs from the sidelines as the team has been officially eliminated. On Saturday at home at the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena, the Bruins struggled early with penalties and turnovers in their own end and they fell behind 3-1 after one period, 6-2 at one point in the second. The Bears mounted a furious comeback at that point with a goal from Connor Gross at 7:18 of the second, assisted by Dakota Kittle and Jackson Purvis. The third period was all Grand Forks as the home team scored twice (Coleton Dawson and Tucker Brown) to cut the Leaf lead to 6-5, but, unfortunately, the Bruins couldn’t get the tying goal. Team captain Purvis led the Bruins in scoring with a goal and two assists. Brown added a pair of goals with Gross adding a goal and an assist. Leafs 6, Bruins 4 Friday’s game in Nelson had a similar story arc as Saturday with the Bruins going down 3-1

after one period and 6-2 after two periods. The Bruins scored two third period power play goals (Gross and Max Newton) to cut the Leaf lead to 6-4 but couldn’t get any closer. Scoring for the Leafs were the end-of-thealphabet boys: Travis Wellman with a hat-trick, Carson Willams with a pair and Jamie Vlanich with a single. Scoring for Grand Forks were Gross, who ended up with a pair, and Michael Rand. Bruins 2, Beaver Valley 6 The Grand Forks Border Bruins suffered their third straight 6-2 loss to a division foe on Tuesday night. The Bruins loss to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks at the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena essentially cooked the teams’ meager playoff chances as the club falls 10 points behind Spokane for fourth place. The Bruins opened scoring with a regulation goal from Newton, assisted by Lincoln Lane, at 14:30 of the first. The Nitehawks tied the score up with Riley Brandt’s first of three at 8:14 of the first. Brandt’s second goal gave the ‘Hawks their first lead, but Rav Shokar tied the score at 2-2 shortly after for Grand Forks, assisted by Drew Carter and Gross. The third period was all Beaver Valley, as the visitors scored four unanswered for the 6-2 win. Kai McDonald went the distance in net for the Nitehawks, stopping 51 of 57 shots. — Lindsay

City sending strong contingent to masters curling provincials CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

Grand Forks will be well represented at the upcoming B.C. Interior Masters/Pacific Coast Masters combined provincial curling championships. The provincials are set for Feb. 25-28 in Salmon Arm. Teams representing the West Kootenay/Boundary with Grand Forks players are the 60-and-over men’s Vern Best rink, the 70-and-over men’s Gordon Shimizu rink and the zone 1 ladies rink. The 60-and-over ladies event is brand new, said Paul Beattie, zone director and member of the 70-and-over team. “This will be the first year for it. We got special permission to have a combined team with two ladies from Castlegar and three from Grand Forks. We didn’t have enough players otherwise.” All the other teams had to play off to qualify by finishing first in the zone. The Best rink had to defeat teams from Trail and Castlegar, while the Shimizu rink beat out another Grand Forks team to qualify. Beattie said there are teams from eight different zones throughout the province that will be at provincials competing in the various categories. For the men’s event, the teams will play round-robin. “For the ladies, because it’s brand new, it’s Interior only,” said Beattie. “They’ll have the host team plus four others and they’ll play round-robin.” Beattie said the provincials

are always competitive with the top masters’ teams coming from around B.C. “It’s always competitive,” he said. “It’s a round-robin competition. Plus the fellowship and the social aspect of meeting people from throughout the province.” Beattie said the Shimizu rink is made up of players from dif-

ferent teams. “It’s not a club team,” he said. “It’s a stronger team. We make it up from two or three teams. At the provincial level you’ve got to be pretty competitive. You play seven games including two a day. You’ve got to have a pretty strong team (to compete). It’s very good competition.”

In Loving Memory of

Melvin Morley


Melvin Morley Bielert passed away Friday, February 07, 2014 in Grand Forks, B.C. at the age of 77 years. Mel is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Norma (Gaetz); his mother Lydia Bielert; his children Kelly (Patty) Bielert; Perry (Sheila) Bielert; Debbie (Dave) Davies and grandchildren Brandi, Tiffany, Shane, Alexandra, Cassandra, Brian, Tyler and Kyle. He was predeceased by his father Ewald Bielert and is also survived by 2 brothers and a sister. Mel was born April 05, 1936 in Kelowna, B.C. He spent 33 years in the RCMP serving in Ottawa, and various postings in Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. After retiring in 1989 as chief of police in Prince George, B.C., Mel and Norma moved to Penticton in 1993 and finally settled in Grand Forks in 1996. Mel was a talented and meticulous craftsman. He and Norma created a beautiful home and surroundings together in which their whole family enjoy. Mel was a wonderful husband and father whose family meant everything to him. His first consideration was always the comfort and well-being of his wife and best friend; Norma, his children and grandchildren. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Baker Family of Grand Forks Funeral Home,

NoP Bielert


ith the sun shining and the warm day today I realized we are closer to spring than we are to winter, meaning a change of the seasons, warmer and brighter days to come. I love all the seasons and I love moving into the new season. Goodbye cold days and snow, hello sunshine and puddles. I like change, I like a new direction, something new to learn and experience. But with all change moving forward means leaving something behind. So it is with a heavy heart I have to say goodbye to my friends and family of this wonderful community. I have taken a new position with my company, and my husband and I are moving to Kelowna. It is a wonderful promotion and I am looking forward to a change in my career. It is never easy to try something new and I am stepping out of my comfort zone. Twenty-seven years in the Grand Forks Overwaitea, wow, it can’t be that long—or, yes it has. There’s that old saying, “time flies when you’re having fun,” and fun it has been. You people are great. You’re very special and I will miss you all. We’ve raised children together, weathered storms together, laughed together and shared many a story and recipe together. I so enjoyed being a part of your families and a member of this community. Every day I felt appreciated and hope I have sent that appreciation back to you all. I will miss visiting with my customers, sharing food and menu ideas, handing out samples of new products and, of course, talking customers into trying the new products. I will miss my coworkers, an awesome group of

people who have been there for me and my family. So much time well spent, moments well enjoyed, hugs, tears, laughs and cheers. This move has been easier because of the support I have always received from staff and customers. A big thank you to all my customers. A big thank you to all my co-workers. A big thank you to the community of Grand Forks. I won’t forget you and I won’t be far away. Coming to Kelowna? Stop in and see me at the Save On Foods Lakeshore store. Now for the last recipe of Tasty Tidbits (that was a hard one) we’ve shared so many—turkey in a bag; breaky biscuits; Pepsi chicken; graham pralines; appys; dips and crock pot tips—but I do believe the one I would like to repeat and share is one that has been passed on to me by my mom. She will be moving to Kelowna too. Can’t leave town without my mom. The love of cooking came from my mom and it’s only fitting I pass on a favourite memory and recipe. The cake is easy and tasty, but it’s the icing that truly makes it special and yummy.

Lazy Daisy cake 2 eggs 1 tsp baking powder 1 cup sugar 1 cup flour 2 tbsp butter ½ teaspoon salt ½ cup milk 1 tsp vanilla In a bowl beat eggs, add sugar and vanilla. In a measuring cup mix flour, baking powder and salt. Then in a small pot heat and scald milk with butter. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and beat with electric mixer. Pour milk in and blend well. Pour batter into large cake pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Icing: Four tablespoons brown sugar, two tablespoon butter, two tablespoons canned milk (you can use Creamo—just use less as it will be thinner). Mix together. Also need ¾ cup coconut. At the last five minutes of cooking pull out and pour cream over top and the sprinkle with coconut. Bake five minutes more till golden.

Robert Ian Gammie April 10, 1945 - Feb. 11, 2014 This week I lost my best friend, lover, husband – and a man larger than life itself – to a sudden, but not unexpected, heart attack. We always thought he was invincible. In almost 20 years of marriage, he made me feel special each and every day and I can never thank him enough. Rob was a man of principle and integrity with gratitude for all that came his way. He had an incredible loyalty to his many friends and family – as could be attested by his famous “Monday night” phone calls with a glass of red wine in hand. We will miss his intelligent conversation and quick debate that was always engaging, wise, philosophical, and punctuated with wit. He adored his children and grandchildren who will miss him terribly. Rob was a native Calgarian, working as a lifeguard, teacher, corporate trainer, and VP in the oil patch before retiring at 50 to be a stay at home dad to his youngest daughter Kira. Rob was always trying to reconcile the commanding persona in the suit with his inner hippy – and in the last 13 years, there is little question his inner hippy won. After leaving Calgary in 2001, we lived in Windermere for 5 years, before settling in Christina Lake, BC. He was so proud of the lovely post and beam home he built there, almost single-handedly. He was very well travelled, but Hawaii remained a favorite, especially the wonderfully shared memories of Kona. Rob had an amazing natural athleticism particularly when swimming or wowing the hills with his telemarking prowess. Rob always did things before they were cool – and loved that his MEC and REI membership numbers were two of the originals. Those cherishing his memory are his loving wife Lynn Barry, his children Kelly (Jory) Gammie; Kira Gammie; Ryan (Christine) Olivier; Monique Olivier (Torey McLeish); his four sweet grandchildren Rowan and Allyson Gammie, Declan Olivier, and Silas McLeish; and his beloved dog Izzy. He was predeceased by his first wife Karen (1989) and his 9-year old son Joshua (1982). We will miss you so much. Cheers and salutis! A big thank you to the many friends and family contacting us with their love. A celebration of Rob’s life will be held Friday, February 21, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Christina Lake Community Hall.”
