The regular city council meeting of February 17 was kicked off by a well-organized and dedicated delegation intent of advancing the creation of a mountain bike skills park in Castlegar. The property for the amenity, about three acres at Twin Rivers Park, has already been allocated by the city. Mark Jennings and others from the Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails provided an update on the

group’s efforts toward the creation of the bike park, including information on a high profile designer, the internationally known Jay Hoots, whose services have been retained. In a powerpoint delivery lasting about 35 minutes, City Council was brought up to speed on the status of the project. Jennings showed photos of other Hoots-designed parks, one in Hinton Alberta situated on property that sprawls over close to 30 acres. He said Hoots (an accomplished competitive mountain biker as well as

a good old fashioned

sale

designer) was chosen from among several other qualified bidders for a combination of reasons: 1. his reputation. 2, his lower bid, and 3, because he is also known for flexibility, allowing locals to have significant input into park design. Jennings told council about an energetic fundraising push being made by his group and described the urgency of the push. He said the group needs help in covering costs of the design phase of the project, and that a number of other potential sources of funding help were to be

approached following the Feb. 17 request of $2,500 from the City of Castlegar. Vocal support and encouragement was expressed by councillors Deb McIntosh and Sue He aton - She rstobitof f. McIntosh said after the meeting’s conclusion that some investigating was needed for the most sensible way to help. “I think part of the issue is going to be where that money comes from,” said the councillor. “So, $2,500 out of the grantin-aid budget is going to really make a dent.

We’ve got to figure out, if we’re going to support the $2,500… where can we pull from that’s not going to have a huge impact.” On the chances of the group’s wishes being accommodated (a written request was also asked for by Heaton-Sherstobitoff ), Coun. McIntosh said, “There’s support for it, definitely. I guess we’ll find out when push comes to shove and the vote comes to the table.” Following his p r e s e n t a t i o n

Airport rampage leads to charges Castlegar RCMP have issued a press release in regard to a February 16 incident.

It was a stormy night February 17, 1964 in the town of Villa Franco de Campo on the Island of San Miguel, one of the Azore Islands off of the coast of Portugal

HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY LIBERTA MARIA From your friends in low places

At approximately 5:30 a.m on February 16th, Castlegar RCMP were called to the West Kootenay Airport in response to a suspicious male complaint. A witness stated that there was a male at that location carrying a pipe and a blanket and that he had attacked the witness’s vehicle with what appeared to be pliers. Before police arrived, another man drove into the parking lot and opened his passenger side window to speak to the male. The male

apprehended and taken into police custody. Neither the officer nor the two witnesses suffered injuries in this incident. The 63 yearold man who was stabbed was transported to Kelowna hospital with serious facial injuries. Further investigation revealed that 10 vehicles parked at the airport parking lot had been broken into and/or damaged. The male, 28, is facing charges of: Aggravated Assault, 11 counts of Mischief (to vehicles), Resist Arrest, and Theft of Motor Vehicle. He appeared in Nelson court on Feb. 17th.

lunged into the passenger side of the truck and stabbed the driver in the face with metal wire snips, causing serious injury. The victim exited his vehicle and the suspect male got into the driver’s seat. The original complainant saw that the male appeared to be trying to steal the victim’s truck, so he rammed the front of the truck with his own vehicle in an attempt to stop the suspect male from fleeing. The vehicle began rolling down the hill, and struck the police car as the officer arrived, causing front-end damage. The suspect male fled the truck, but was subsequently

The Regional District of Central Kootenay will continue to provide rural recycling for at least a year after an industry stewardship group told them it won’t be able to take over until 2015 at the earliest. Multi Material BC is expected to assume responsibility for recycling packaging and paper starting in May. It has reached agreements with 165 municipalities, regional districts, First Nations, non-profits, and private sector companies, covering over 1.25 million BC households — including Nelson, Kaslo, Nakusp, Castlegar, and rural areas around Castlegar, where curbside recycling will be provided. However, the RDCK initially balked at financial incentives to collect materials on Multi Material BC’s behalf, saying the offer lacked key information and wouldn’t cover their costs. In November they changed their mind, fearing the region’s 27 rural recycling depots could be reduced to as few as two. By agreeing to keep a hand in recycling, the regional district hoped

RECRUITMENT

to maintain 10 to 15 depots which meet Multi-Material BC’s security requirements or could easily be converted. But while the board believed it met the deadline to sign up, Multi-Material BC now says it won’t be able to cover the RDCK this year, and appears only to have agreements with applicants who signed up by an earlier deadline. “While we made every effort to be able to include the RDCK when the program launches in May, we do not have any further capacity in the program this year and have placed them on a waiting list for future opportunities,” Multi-Material BC communications manager Sarah Stephen explained in an email. She didn’t elaborate on what was meant by “capacity.” Managing director Allen Langdon wasn’t available for an interview Monday. But a frustrated RDCK chair John Kettle said his understanding is that a number of producers aren’t participating, resulting in insufficient funding to support the program this year. (Small businesses were recently exempted, but it’s not clear if this is

the issue.) “They didn’t give a good explanation other than it looks like there’s not enough folks in the program from the producers side to make it work financially,” Kettle said. “To me that’s not satisfactory.” Kettle said the regional district will keep providing rural recycling, staving off any depot closures for now. “It’s not a tax increase, but it could have been a million dollar tax decrease if we had been able to sign up for the program. They would have taken over responsibility for recycling and we wouldn’t have had to tax for it.” Kettle said he doesn’t blame Multi Material BC so much as the producers themselves and called on environment minister Mary Polak to “use every weapon in her arsenal” to push them to support the program financially. “We’re not the only ones left hanging here,” he said. “I think this is really poorly administered.” Multi Material BC said it will be “evaluating opportunities to expand our collection network annually” and remains committed to talking with interested local governments about including them.

News City to pursue boundary extension JIM SINCLAIR Castlegar News Editor

A recommendation contained in the agenda for Monday (Feb. 17) night’s City Council meeting suggested the City of Castlegar go about taking steps annexing property known as the gravel pit lands along the east bank of the Columbia River in Ootischenia, near the Kinnaird Bridge. It had been recommended at council’s Dec. 16, 2013 meeting that an alternative approval process be carried out as a condition of pursuing a right of first refusal for the

property, should it come up for sale. The property in question is owned by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, which reportedly has no current plans of dispensing with it. The alternative approval component for the boundary extension process, which meant, in basic terms, approval of electors was assumed unless 10 per cent (610 electors) had expressed written opposition by Feb. 3, 2014. As it turned out, no electors opposed the action. There has, however, been significant opposition among

Ootischenia residents over the possibility of the municipal expansion, although the lawfulness of the move had not been questioned. At Monday’s meeting council agreed to “proceed to the required next step of securing provincial government approval for the proposed Highway 3 Right of Way (Ootischenia Pit Lands area) municipal boundary extension.” Council supported the recommendation, agreeing to supply further related documentation to the provincial Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Castlegar RCMP reported on Feb. 19 that “A 37 year-old Lillooet man was in Police custody after an incident that occurred in downtown Castlegar in the early evening hours of February 18. It is believed that the male was travelling through Castlegar on his way to Lillooet. “RCMP had received several calls of someone in the neighbourhood driving a vehicle intentionally into cars that were parked in peoples’ driveways,” stated the press release from Sgt. Laurel Mathew. “The male driver then abandoned his car on a lawn and

was standing nearby. When a few people tried to approach him, he pulled a knife and waved them off. When Police arrived, the male still had the knife in his possession. He eventually dropped the knife very close to his feet. The male was sprayed with OC spray, and after a significant struggle, he was taken into custody. One officer suffered a shoulder injury while attempting to place the male in the police car. No other witnesses or Officers were injured. The male was taken to hospital to receive medical attention, however he suffered no injury. A small quantity of what is believed to be Meth was located

on the male, and a significant quantity of marijuana was also located and seized. “It was learned that the male Natural gas is good for laundry too. had driven his vehicle into a Enter to win a washer business, and a detached resiand natural gas dryer! dential garage.

Castlegar mayor Lawrence Chernoff will chair a five-member committee appointed to look at whether the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s sustainability service should survive. Seven areas have now asked to withdraw from the contentious program, established four years ago to deal with a variety of environmental initiatives, from climate change

The latest to formally request withdrawal is Arrow Lakes director Paul Peterson, who joins Nakusp, Castlegar, Salmo, New Denver, and two rural areas around Creston. Nelson is the lone member of the regional district that never joined. In addition to Chernoff, who will have no

Downtown credit union to trim service jim sinclair Castlegar News Editor

Kootenay Savings’ downtown Castlegar Branch, as of sometime in May will no longer offer personalized, over-the-counter banking to its membership. Although that portion of its service will be available only at the uptown Crossroads branch, ATM and night deposit capability will still be accessible at the location on the corner of 4th Street and 10th Avenue. Certain administrative functions will also continue to be performed downtown. The credit union’s vicepresident & marketing, Dario Cescon says it was the financial institution’s plan to keep the downtown branch operating, even following the opening of the new Crossroads branch in South Castlegar in 2011, but the numbers suggested otherwise. “We’ve been looking at it for a little while,” he told the Castlegar News on Feb. 14. “We’ve been monitoring our transaction levels between the two branches and we see the membership moving to the Crossroads

branch more and more. So we made the decision earlier this year that we would have to consolidate the two branches.” It had been membership demand, according to Cescon, that the South Castlegar branch had been created, and now the feeling is that overall service levels may be improved with the consolidation. What it apparently came down to was the shift in consumer trends - the drop-

off in demand for in-person banking service overall. “Members are using more effective ways to bank,” added Cescon, “they’ve got email, they’ve got online banking. Lots of members are using tablets and smartphones now.” The VP pointed to the variety offered at Crossroads…”a little bit more advisory services, investment and wealth management, help with mortgages, commercial services - we have a

really robust offering in that branch.” Cescon estimated the net reduction of positions resulting from the downtown changes at between two and three and that options for relocation at other branches would made available to affected staff. “Some positions may become part-time,” Cescon concluded, “but, as always, the opportunity is to go into other Kootenay Savings positions.”

Peddling the pedal plan

Hats off to the group pushing for a bike skills park as part of the amenities at Twin Rivers (Millennium) Park. A prepared and passionate outfit represented itself well at this week’s City Council meeting and its enthusiasm is contagious. It’s just easy to get behind an idea that promotes fitness for all age groups in an exciting and entertaining way. Hearing organizers talk about a summer start for the mountain bike skills park, triggers fond thoughts, especially in mid-February. It’s great that the property itself has already been allocated, and great too that council members appear supportive of helping to finance some of the design phase of the project. We’ll see how supportive in the coming weeks. Also on the plus side is the choice of designers made by the group going after the skills park. They went with the man who is likely the best known of the bidders. Jay Hoots – to bike park design is like Jack Nicklaus - to golf course design; he adds legitimacy and value just by being associated with the project. Topping off the list of positives that seem so obvious with the mountain bike skills park proposal, is the location itself. Imagine a young family heading down to the scenic riverfront expanse with a young boy set to tackle the beginners’ part of the bike park, dad heading for the Rotary-installed fitness equipment, with mom and baby tossing a blanket on the grass and enjoying the weather. We want to hear from you.

Spots in Time - Gord Turner

Passage to China In China I was expecting a backward country with rickshaws and bicycles all over the place, and poor people begging or barely surviving. I must have got bogged down in my history books of 50 years ago or read too many Pearl Buck novels. Anyway, China turned out to be a major surprise—a modern, progressive country moving forward rapidly. From our arrival in Shanghai to the moment we flew out of Hong Kong, we were amazed at the places we stayed, the transportation available, and the modern quality of everything. Walking along the Bund overlooking the Huangpu River in Shanghai, we could have been in any major city in the world. Beautiful hotels and finely constructed buildings blended in with skyscrapers and the ornate pinkly-coloured Pearls Tower across the way. Here we were in the midst of a city of 23 million people, and we felt at ease and safe. People strolled by, took pictures, checked the monuments, and watched the river barges slide by. American and European cars vied with Japanese and Korean vehicles for space along the excellent inter-city highways. Buses and trains were everywhere. Cindy Amaral Production Manager

Many Chinese cities have banned motorcycles and bicycles from their major thoroughfares. In Chongqing, for example, a city of 33 million souls in the middle of the country, we never saw a single (motor) bike or bicycle on the roads - this in a city that has the largest motorcycle factories in China. We were quite impressed with the city of Nanjing which we visited before our official tour. Here we visited the burial site of Sun Yat Sen (the first non-emperor leader from 1911), the mausoleum of one of the first emperors of the Ming Dynasty, and the education room of the Confucian Centre. We walked among the gardens on Purple Mountain and spent an afternoon in Rain Flower Park among the monuments to the heroes of Nanjing’s wars. Once we met our Canadian friends in Beijing and began the official tour, we did all the Beijing sights you hear about—the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Peking Opera, and Tiananmen Square. Then we were flown to Tsian where the highlight was the visit to the centre for the terracotta warriors. As we entered the huge hockey-rink of a building, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Here were terracotta figures,

some ten feet tall, and large work horses created 2000 years ago, and only recently unearthed. In one area alone, they unearthed up to 5,000 of these creations, all individual in design and look. Apparently, the young emperor of the time wanted a huge army on guard along the path to his tomb, and so the populace worked on these terracotta figures over many decades. I loved the three days on a cruise ship traveling through the Yangtze Gorges, but I thought the trip along the Li River near Guilin was the highlight of beauty. Here the pointed, strangely shaped limestone peaks have been created by erosion over the centuries. They are so magnificent that the Chinese nearly always use these mountain photos for their tourist pamphlets. Our small cruise boat floated among water buffalo bathing in the waters and smaller sampans sliding by us with their wares. Hong Kong was a bit of a bust after the wonder of the rest of China. We did admire the harbour laser light show one evening and had a good sampan ride in the old Aberdeen harbour. A quick trip to Portuguese Macau by jet boat took one of our Hong-Kong days, and too soon we were headed home. Jim Sinclair Editor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Lamenting CU change Another nail in the coffin of downtown Castlegar with the partial closure of the KSCU on Third Street. I have been a member of KSCU now for 25 years, and when I bought my house in 1996, I made sure that it was within walking distance of 90 per cent of the amenities I needed, which included Kootenay Savings, the Post Office, doctor, dentist, etc. It seems that since we spent $10,000,000 on revitalizing the Downtown, it has not done much good, has it? Incidentally, the rent of my small store was raised by $100 per month for ten years, totalling $12,000, which did not do me much good either. A rather disgruntled downtown resident who does understand that things change and we have no choice but to make the best of it, but would hope that enough people care enough to keep the status quo with regard to KSCU. -Janice A. Kelley, Castlegar THANKS: To the people

who helped me get across the street, and got my cane for me.

Yoga group going strong Last February I began to teach yoga to a small group of people - most have MS and a couple of care providers. The West Kootenay MS Society had sponsored one of their MS clients at a beginner’s yoga class and a connection was made. We have been meeting once a week at the Castlegar library Lower Level Yoga Space and at the Columbia River Studio ~ A Magical Setting for a yoga class especially engineered for people with MS. In all my many years of teaching I never had a group like this. These people all came early to help me get ready for them, setting up all the complicated yoga props needed for a restorative class and an active class for students with disabilities. They help each other and are so kind and they all always come to class unless it is impossible. We have advanced quickly into a support

Denise is starting to notice that all of her hard work is paying off! She attended her regular Cycle Sculpt and Stretch & Strengthen classes and also threw in some morning runs and a couple of days of skiing. Add some snow shovelling in there too, and that makes this past week jam packed full of exercise! “Week 4 was a hard week and I needed a rest day for recovery. Improving flexibility is taking longer than strengthening and I’m still a long way from reaching my toes. I’ve felt pretty good about my food choices as I focus on healthy eating. Although I’m more tired this week, I’m happy as I see myself shaping up!” Coach Kristy could not be happier though, even referring to Denise as a ‘trainer’s delight’! “Denise continues to work hard both in and out of class! Eating well and sticking to a strict schedule, she is starting to notice the benefit to her training. I am seeing a great improvement in her strength, endurance and energy. We will focus on deeper stretching this week.”

Kootenay Cycling

Phone: 250-304-8413 Email: havefun@kootenaycycling.com Amber picked up the pace this week by adding a 4th yoga class to her schedule! She is continuing to notice the positive effects of her yoga training in other areas of her life. “Week four was awesome. I started to notice more definition in my arms, especially my triceps. Janice is doing such an amazing job of keeping me focused and on task. I noticed while cross country skiing this weekend that I felt more in control of my glide I’ll attribute that to my new found knowledge on posture and balance correction.” And Janice is also picking up the pace with her training and even has Amber doing the same program that she had the Trail SmokeEaters doing when she was working with them. “We started with the pure strength poses and will start the balancing section this week. Amber is continuing her yogic crunches for core strength and leg stretches with strap for leg strength. She is continuing to work hard at her fitness, she is a teacher’s dream student!”

Hailey is still going strong and has already blown past her goal of losing 10lbs with still 2 weeks to go! “Week 4 has been great - no complaints! :) I am feeling great and still at it everyday! I’m less and less sore each week. Spencer has been amazing and continues to surprise me! Looking forward to the last couple of weeks!” Needless to say, her trainer is exceedingly impressed. “Hailey is still doing amazingly. We did measurements last week and she has lost over 9 inches! Pay attention Castlegar, this is how you get it done. You are fantastic Hailey!”

Did you notice all the wasps last summer? We see them every year so why was this past summer such a good year to be a wasp and such a bad year to be us? Simply put, having a mild winter followed by a hot, dry summer produces what scientists say is a bumper crop of wasps. When we’re talking about wasps in B.C., we’re dealing with a whole bunch of different types of wasps; only some of them are a bother to us. The ‘problem’ wasps are the yellow jackets, hornets, and paper wasps. And, yes, wasps ARE different from bees. Wasps

What about the other wasps that are not a bother to us? There are a number of parasitic wasps… you might have seen some with long skinny bodies and what looks like a very long stinger. In fact that isn’t a stinger but a Stock quotes as of closing

Ecology What was up with all the wasps?

inside & outside space available

Continued from P. A9

...we need to talk about some basic wasp ecology. In most wasps, males are only produced at the end of each season for the purpose of mating with a queen. After a successful mating, the sperm stays dormant in a tightly compacted ball in the queen until spring. Queens attempt to survive the winter by finding a safe place to hibernate like under loose bark or in our attics. Having a mild winter is 1_ND061D112.P001 24 Unit the first step towards having a lot of wasps the following summer.

The Corolla is sold in several different trim levels, starting at $15,995 to get the base CE, but the reality is that most Canadians will upgrade to the $19,215 S (Sport) or the LE for $19,500. To upgrade to this $20,500 LE Eco model is $1,035 over the S model and $750 over the regular LE. I prefer the S trim for its more aggressive 17-inch wheels compared to the LE and LE Eco, which come with smaller 16-inch wheels. Regardless, this model is a massive step forward in terms of delivering an

The base CE is sold with either a 6-speed manual or the 4-speed automatic found in the last model. The only other model to be offered with a manual is the S trim.

Safety Tip: While our days are continuing to get longer, road conditions remain challenging and visibility is limited. As drivers, we always need to be on the lookout for pedestrians but especially at busy intersections and near transit stops where they may be coming and going and not always in a crosswalk.

Five classics you’d never guess are so valuable

By Rob Sass

Here are five you’d never suspect of being quite pricey: Some classics wear their price tags on their sleeves. Look at a fuel-injected ’57 Chevy Bel Air, and it’s immediately apparent that it’s valuable merchandise. On the other hand, there are the sleepers of the classic car world, the cars that are worth a lot of money but it’s only obvious to those in-theknow. For example, few would guess that the proceeds from a restored VW microbus could put a kid through college.

3. Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser: The classic Jeep-like 1960-1984 Toyota Land Cruiser was one tough vehicle—so tough that they invited horrific abuse, which explains the dearth of clean examples. A nicely restored one sold at an auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., last January for $88,000. Some are said to have sold for $100,000-plus. In response to FJ40s getting so expensive, first-generation 4Runners are starting to increase in value. Don’t say you weren’t told!

4. Ford Bronco: The humble 1966-77 Ford Bronco was a product of the same team that brought us the classic 1964½ Mustang. Unlike the Mustang, which sat on Ford Falcon underpinnings, the first Bronco was a unique platform. The size and shape were just right, and collectors have latched onto them in droves. Totally stock, unrusted, Broncos without cut fenders and flares are rare; it takes around $30,000 to get a nice one.

1. Volkswagen “Samba” Microbus: There’s a simple rule of thumb with VW Microbuses: More windows equals more money. The 21- and 23-window versions of the venerable ’50s VW Microbus can bring money that would shock the hippies who ran them into the ground in the 1960s—around 70 grand for a nicely restored one. They’ve even been known to break $100,000 at the right auction. 5. BMW Isetta: Prior to becoming known as the ultimate driving machine, BMW sold the super-expensive V-8 507 roadster and the tiny egg-like Isetta microcar out of the same showrooms. It’s no shock that the gorgeous 507 roadster sells for a ton of money, but the fact that Isettas can pull more than $40,000 is surprising indeed.

2. Fiat Jolly: The Jolly was an open-top version of the classic Fiat 500 that was meant to be stowed onboard yachts and used as transport in places like Monaco and Positano. They have no doors, the seats are made of wicker and the tops are meant only to provide shade. Appallingly cute, the pint-sized Jolly can sell for upwards of $70,000.

Kerry Vital / Black Press Names such as Amanda Todd and Rehtaeh Parsons are sadly well-known to many Canadians. Both teens committed suicide after years of bullying at the hands of classmates. On Feb. 26, Canadians will recognize Pink Shirt Day, a day devoted to preventing bullying and helping children and teens who are being victimized. For some people, bullying hits very close to home. Tad Milmine, now an RCMP constable, is one of them. As a child, Milmine was bullied relentlessly by classmates and locked in the basement by his stepmother every day for 12 years. His father, an alcoholic, never tried to help him, even when Milmine’s stepmother verbally abused him. “I always held out hope that one day an adult would see that I was in the basement and perhaps ‘rescue’ or ‘save’ me,” he says. “No one ever came.” At 17, Milmine ran away from home and cut all ties with his father and stepmother. Still, he struggled with being extremely introverted and emotional. While he had dreamed of being a police officer for much

of his life, he didn’t feel confident enough to act on that dream. At 33, he finally felt able to take that step and do what he loved after encouragement from an officer he met while playing baseball. “I never acted on my dream because I truly believed it was just a dream,” he says. “I thought that dreams weren’t meant to be achieved.” Milmine was moved by the 2011 suicide of Ontario teen Jamie Hubley, who killed himself after years of bullying for being gay and a figure skater, to start Bullying Ends Here, a website that tells Hubley’s story as well as his own. Milmine has travelled all over Canada and the U.S. speaking to students and encouraging them to contact him if they need help. In the presentations, he shares his own story and that of Hubley, and tells the students that he understands what it’s like to be an outcast, and that he too is gay, just like Hubley. He shares this information to point out that he is no different than the people listening to him in the audience. “I never let my sexuality stand in the way of living out a dream,” Milmine says. “I never let the negativity while growing up stand in my way.” Milmine’s presentations are done on his own time and with his own money. “I always wanted to ‘help’ people and today I am lucky enough to be in that position,” says

The dangers of Ask.fm Tad Milmine

Milmine. “Youth need to know that nobody can help them if they don’t speak up. You have to share, have to ask for help. Give us a chance to help.” Sixty-four per cent of Canadian children have been bullied at school at some point, according to the Pink Shirt Day campaign, and 40 per cent of Canadian employees are bullied at the workplace on a weekly basis. “Pink Shirt Day gets people talking,” Milmine says. “People are talking about it leading up to it, and on the day itself. You’re going to talk about why you’re wearing a pink shirt that day, and youth are reminded of the resources available to them.” Pink Shirt Day was started in Nova Scotia by two teenage boys who, after seeing another male student bullied for wearing a pink shirt, decided to gather their friends and all wear pink to school. CKNW AM 980 was inspired by their action, and since 2007 has raised over $650,000 for anti-bullying programs in B.C. through the sale of their pink shirts. You can purchase your own shirt at London Drugs or online. This year’s campaign is being presented by Coast Capital Savings, with Black Press as a media partner. For more information about Pink Shirt Day, visit www.pinkshirtday.ca. Milmine’s website can be found at www.bullyingendshere.ca.

The website and smartphone app Ask.fm is a social-networking site where people can ask other users questions. It’s extremely popular with pre-teens and teens, but recently it has become wellknown for facilitating cyber-bullying instead. It has been referenced in several suicide cases around the world as part of the bullying the victim experienced that led to their suicide. The biggest issue with Ask.fm is that questions can be submitted anonymously, and content is not monitored, so abuse of the service can be rampant with no repercussions to the user. Even if someone is blocked, that person can still view profiles and see other interactions, and privacy settings cannot be increased as they can on Facebook and Twitter. According to RCMP Const. Tad Milmine, the Latvia-based website also sends daily spam with messages suggesting users kill themselves and calling them ugly, among others, with no name attached. Parents are urged to monitor all social media accounts and talk to their children about their online activities in an effort to prevent cyberbullying, and remember that the terms of service of Facebook, Twitter and Ask.fm require users to be at least 13.

We were graced with Castlegar royalty, the candidates for Miss Castlegar 2014, and even a visitor from Australia! The Castlegar Skating Club thanks the Lion’s Club for its continued support, and challenges others to join us on the ice next year for a chance to win some fun prizes by participating in our silly on-ice antics.

Council appears supportive of bike park pitch Continued from P. A1

Jennings met with media and, first, outlined the status of the park proposal starting with some background. He related how the bike skills park idea had been supported during public input sessions on how best to improve the City’s Millennium Park. “Just last spring I went to the Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails and asked if they would be willing to take on this project,” Jennings explained. “I stepped up to the executive and we started the process of talking to the City and getting the approvals in place. The land has already been set aside in the Official Community Plan as the bike skills park.” The hope among the Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails is that the south end of

the park can be done this year… and that work may start as soon as possible. “It is critical that another summer doesn’t go by without us riding in this park,”

he stressed. “We’ve been waiting for the last four years to get to this point. Now we’re here and we want to make sure we get to enjoy it while we can…this sum-

mer. We’re hoping to get shovels in the ground… in July or August.” Jennings expressed gratitude to the City for its support to date, and agreed that

continued support, such as the requested $2,500 would bolster his group’s efforts to gain additional funding help from other corporate and institutional sources.

A vasectomy is still one of the best control methods. A minor operation using a local anesthetic, it involves severing the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis. The operation doesn't result in immediate sterility so alternate birth control methods should still be used. No sexual difficulties result from the operation however it doesn't protect against sexually transmitted diseases. We've mentioned the "polypill" in this column in the past. It's a drug delivery system that combines 4 drugs in one pill for patients with heart disease. The pill contains ASA, a cholesterol-lowering drug and one or two blood pressure-lowering drugs. It's a way of ensuring the patient gets all the medication needed to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Not on the market yet, but perhaps soon. Understanding how a drug works and its importance to your health will help you remember to take them correctly. We can help.

Sports Saints manage to solve TWU goalie Derek Kaye Castlegar News contributor

With a goalie for Trinity Western University all the way from Switzerland for a Valentine’s matchup with the Selkirk Saints, managing to capture first star honours in a 4-1 loss, speaks to the task of stopping 59 of 62 shots laid into him by the relentless Selkirk Saints. Silas Matthys has been in Canada only four months. He played in the National B League in Switzerland, which is the second highest calibre league in that country. A Canadian education in hockey and, of course, whatever he is studying, will certainly benefit his upward mobility, but it’s apparent that we Canadians have a thing or two to learn from this young lad about the science of stopping pucks before they cross the goal line. Although it is certain that love was not the first thing on these two teams’ minds, the game only had one minor penalty in 60 minutes of play, so it was exciting hockey. Scoring opened on an effort by Saints captain Logan Proulx at 15:09 from Darnell Dyck and Connor McLaughlin. The Trinity Western Spartans evened the score less than three minutes later on a goal by Christian Rodriguez assisted by Jake Harcoff and Mattias Schmitt. Cody Fidgett (assisted by Lucas Hildebrand and Logan Proulx) then put the Saints on top by one. The score of 2 -1 remained till midway through

Sports Rebels drop a pair to the Nitehawks

DEREK KAYE Castlegar News contributor

Beaver Valley jumped the gun on Saturday February 15, scoring three goals in quick succession. This resulted in Castlegar Rebels coach Jesse Dorrans switching goalies. Nitehawk Dallas Calvin, assisted by Ryan Edwards put the first one in at 15:34 and then at 13:32 Ryan Edwards from Dan Holland sunk another one. Less than 30 seconds later another shot by Braden Fuller assisted by Dallas Calvin slipped past Nate Rabbit and at this point he was replaced by teammate Patrick Zubick. But it did not seem to matter who was in net for Castlegar, as Braden Fuller’s shot got by Zubick five minutes later, assisted by Blake Sidoni and Sam Swanson. The second period opened with what Aaron Brewer would later describe as the Castlegar team’s “A game,’’ and he proved that by putting the Rebels on the scoreboard at 11:19 assisted by Derek Georgopoulos and Diego Bartlett - two teammates who were most definitely hustling as hard as they could. But the Nitehawks responded at 7:18 with a shot by Ryan Edwards from Sheldon Hubbard, and the Beaver Valley squad was now ahead 5-1. Scoring in period three opened at 11:19 with the Rebels “A” line, Brewer, Georgopoulos and Bartlett tallying at almost the same time on the clock as their second period

goal. The line of Medeiros, Jenerou and Bowerman, not to be outdone, scored on a power play opportunity less than two minutes later. But the Nitehawks stomped on the gas and scored three more before the end of the game with two from Ryan Edwards (assisted by Riley Brandt and Dan Holland) and again (assisted by Dan Holland and Lyle Frank) to give Edwards a hat-trick for the night. He scored another point at 5:09, assisting with Walter Sidoni on Beaver Valley’s last goal of the night on a shot by Sam Swanson. Although there was only one penalty in the first period, the second and third saw plenty of roughing and game misconducts. The Rebels’ captain finished his shift midway through the third after some exciting boxing action. Teammate Matt Reed had al-

ready roughed out of the game during the second period. The Nitehawks Fraser Stang and Riley Brandt represented their team in the boxing club and were given game misconducts as well. Nitehawks coach Terry Jones spoke with the Castlegar News post game. “Pretty good effort for us, really good first period,” he said. “We were really skating - we had some good opportunities and we buried the puck when we needed to. Second period sagged a little bit as we took our foot off the pedal. The game is mental - you have to keep skating and playing hard. You’ve got to play your A game to win. It is a tough division, if you don’t play your best you are not going to win.” Rebels forward Aaron Brewer who had put two shots in the net, commented... Continued on P. A26

In Loving Memory

Peter Makeiff With sad and aching hearts, the family of Peter Makeiff of Ootischenia, wishes to announce his passing at Talarico Place Care Centre on Wednesday, January 29, 2014, blessed with 85 years of life. Peter was born in Brilliant, BC on June 28, 1928, to parents Annie and Taras Makeiff and he has lived in this area all his life. On December 29, 1949, he married Vera Gleboff and the couple raised two daughters. During his working career, Peter was a carpenter/welder on heavy construction and worked on many dam and bridge construction projects in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba. He enjoyed music and singing and was a proud member of the Kootenay Men’s Choir, of the Tri-Choir and of the Kootenay Psalmists. He liked fishing, gardening, sports and especially spending time with his family. Peter was the kind of person who was always positive and always had a big smile and something cheerful to say. Peter was predeceased by his brothers Mike and Bill and by his sisters Annie Jensen, Molly Kinakin and Lucy Nevakshonoff. Left to mourn his loss is his loving wife of 64 years Vera; his daughters Barbara (Joe) Popoff and Donna (Al) Green; 7 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; a large extended family and a large circle of friends and acquaintances. Funeral Services were officiated by Peter Zaytsoff at the Brilliant Cultural Centre on Friday, February 7, 2014 followed by interment in the Ootischenia Cemetery. Donations in Peter’s memory may be made to the Castlegar Hospital Foundation, Talarico Place Care Centre, 709-10th Street, Castlegar BC V1N 2H7 or the Brilliant Cultural Centre, 1818 Brilliant Road, Castlegar BC V1N 4K2. The family would like to thank all the staff at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hopital, all the staff at Talarico Place Care Centre, Castlegar Funeral Chapel, Brilliant Cultural Centre, Peter Zaytsoff for officiating the funeral service, John J. Verigin for his heartfelt words of comfort, the singers for their melodious singing, the cooks and servers for the excellent meal, all the people who attended the funeral and all the people who called, sent cards, visited and brought food. The family is truly grateful to the entire community for their generous and unwavering support during this difficult time. “MAY HE REST IN GOD’S HEAVENLY KINGDOM.”

Its hard to believe one year passed since we lost our wonderful parents You left us beautiful memories Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same But as God calls us, one by one The chain will link again Love you always from your loving Family

OBITUARY

Andrew (Andy) John Verigin

September 18, 1934-February 6, 2014 Andy passed away peacefully at his Wasa home on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at the age of 79, after a short battle with bone cancer. Andy was born on September 18, 1934 to John and Polly in Perry Siding, BC. He met his beautiful bride Dorothy (Konkin) and they were marred in August of 1955. In February of 1960 the family moved to Donald, BC, then later to Golden, BC and finally moving to Wasa, BC in the spring of 1968. Andy was known through the valley for his wonderful delicious cucumbers and tomatoes and the most beautiful flowers in the valley. Andy is survived by his wife, Dorothy; sons Randy (Jeanette) and Garry (Christian); grandchildren, Chris, Megan, Tyrell and Benjamin; great grandchildren Oden and Cleo; sister: Mary; sister in laws: Mabel (Bill) and Mary; brother in laws: Harry (Barb) and Martin (Stella); nephews: Kenny and Kevin; nieces: Rachel, Teresa, Bonnie, Amanda, Sarah, Jenica, Carol and Marlene; as well as numerous family and friends. Andy was preceded in death by his parents, his daughter Debbie and a niece Christine. A celebration of life for Andy will be held on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at the Wasa Community Hall from 11 am to 3 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the Wasa Community Church. The family would also like to thank Dr. Ken Brown, Dr. Scheiman, the staff at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and the ladies of Interior Health Home Care for all the great and wonderful care they showed towards Any and they are forever grateful.

Sports Beaver Valley squad proves to be a handful for Castlegar Rebels Continued from P. A21

“They obviously have some elite talent over there so you can’t be making simple mistakes that we shouldn’t be making. It is all about consistency with us. If we have all four lines rolling, everyone going, we can put up with anyone in this league”. On the previous night the

Rebels were in Fruitvale at the Beaver Valley Arena, coming out on the wrong end of a 6-3 score. The Nitehawks came out strong in the first period establishing a three goal lead on the Rebels. Jeremy Lucchini scored (Ryan Edwards and Fraser Stang) before Dallas Calvin (Jacob Boyczuk and Taylor Staf-

ford) and Ryan Edwards (Dan Holland) added to the bulge. In the second period the Rebels took advantage of two power-play opportunities early on, scoring at 17:12 and 16:33 by Darren Medeiros from Dylan Bowerman and Hunter Jeneroux for the first and the second scored by Connor Beauchemin from Darren Medeiros and Jer-

emy McNeil. But the Nitehawks responded, widening their lead with two of their own scored by Dallas Calvin from Fraser Stang and Jeremy Lucchini, and at 3:20 by Riley Brandt from Ryan Edwards and Dan Holland. The third period opened with Rebel Captain Kody Disher scoring at 19:05 assisted by Dylan Bowerman and Aaron

2 cups barbecue sauce (optional)

Directions 1. Place the onions and garlic in an even layer in the slow cooker and pour in the stock or broth. Combine the sugar, chili powder, measured salt, cumin, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture all over the pork and place the meat on top of the onions and garlic. Cover and cook until the pork is fork tender, about 6 to 8 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low. 2. Turn off the slow cooker and remove the pork to a cutting board. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a medium heatproof bowl. Pour the onion mixture from the slow cooker through the strainer and return the solids to the slow cooker. Set the strained liquid aside. 3. If the pork has a bone, remove and discard it. Using 2 forks, shred the meat into bitesized pieces, discarding any large pieces of fat. Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker, add the barbecue sauce, if using, and mix to combine. If you’re not using barbecue sauce, use a spoon to skim and discard the fat from the surface of the strained cooking liquid, and then add 1/4 cup of the liquid at a time to the slow cooker until the pork is just moistened. Taste and season with salt as needed. 4. Serve on a Portugese Bun with some freshly made coleslaw.
