The 28th Annual Tweedsmuir Ski Race attracted almost 60 brave racers!

Cold temperatures don’t deter racers at Ski Race Minus 15 and blowing snow? No problem! A record 80 people had registered for the 28th Annual Tweedsmuir Ski Race held on Sunday, March 2, and almost 60 braved the elements to participate in the race. There were four distances to choose from: 3km, 7km, 14km and 21 km. The 3km loop, designed for the littlest competitors, featured four ‘treasure bins’ to keep spirits up and whining to a minimum (great idea organizers!) Four ‘Rabbits’ (five and under) completed the loop and 21 other skiers who also completed

the 3km joined them. The 7km was also a popular choice with the majority of skiers, including the SAMS Outdoor Education Class, who completed the loop in good time. Six determined skiers completed the 14km loop, with Donna Ratcliff taking the lead with a time of 1:32:02. She was followed by Kyha Saban with a time of 1:46:08. Five individuals completed the grueling 21km loop with Alex Boileau taking first place with a time of 1:19:10. Tim deGrace followed him with a time of 1:57:18, and Grant

McCartney was third with a time of 2:01:15. Carl Harstead and Elijah Mecham followed with times of 2:37:33 and 2:48:41 respectively. A fabulous potluck feast followed with chili, soup and hot chocolate being consumed in record quantities. The windy weather didn’t allow for a lot of lingering around but mugs were awarded to the following Alex Boileau: Overall Winner (21km, 19-39Male), Tim deGrace: 2nd place (21km, 17-39yrs Male), Carl Harstad: Fastest (21km, 40+ Male), Donna Ratcliff: Fastest (14km,

40+ Female), Rick Ratcliff: Fastest (14km, 40+ Male), Monica and Marry Tutt: tied for 2nd place (14km, 40+ Female), Lauren Harrison: Fastest (7km, 2-16yr Female), Finn Carlson: Fastest (7km, 6-12yr Male), Katie Koroluk: Fastest (7km, 6-12 Female), Khya Saban: Fastest (14km, 17-39 Female) and Ewan Koroluk: Fastest (3km skier 6-12yr old male). Ray McIlwain donated a beautiful print and all of the participants names were placed in a draw, with Grant McCartney being the lucky winner. A special thanks to all of the folks who

helped out with the event, especially Kerry and Alex Boileau for all of their hard work organizing, Dave and Kathy Flegel, who registered all of the skiers on the roadside the morning of the race, and Lisa Nordin and John Butler who did an excellent job timekeeping. And a huge big thank you to Lyle Enderud and Duane Pederson who have spent countless volunteers hours grooming the ski trails for the x-country skiers. Hope to see everyone out next year for the 29th Annual 2015 Tweedsmuir X-Country Ski Race!

BC Parks holds community engagement meeting By Simon Schopman BC Parks staff were on hand February 27 in the banquet room at the Valley Inn to discuss some of the projects they have been working on this past year, issues they have been addressing, and providing the opportunity for feedback from the community. Design plans were posted for two projects to be completed by the end of the year in South Tweedsmuir Park. Joan Sawicki, a tireless BC Parks volunteer, facilitated the meeting, and began on a personal note, “I really believe that our protected areas in BC are so important for conservation values, protecting habitat and biodiversity, the areas that we recreate in, and what these spaces mean for our local economy,” Sawicki explained. The informal gathering began with an introduction of the BC Parks Team: Planning Section Head Volker Michelfelder and Area Supervisors Bree Matthewman and Steven Hodgson. Brief presentations were prepared by each team member, complete with beautiful pictures of our local area, which gave a rich description of each member’s job. The personal introductions were a great reminder of the personal commitment of our friends, families, and neighbours’ who work for this organization. BC Parks, in collaboration with First Nations, has to achieve a delicate balance of establishing winter and summer recreation, commercial and non-commercial opportunities, while conserving our sensitive biological zones. “The community’s input is essential to the planning process,” said Michelfelder.

“It ensures that the plans reflect the values and interests of the community.” Some of the many accomplishments for 2013 were included in Bella Coola Area Supervisor’s Steve Hodgson’s presentation. He presented a comprehensive update on projects completed over the last year, beginning with a big thanks to Hans Granander for his work as Project Manager last year, and thanking Kevin Matuga, Rod Krimmer, and Justin Grey for their hard work in rehabilitating the Loop Trail and Stillwater Lake Trail. The Tote Road has been subject to extensive rehabilitation since the 2010 flood, and the new Young Creek Bridge is truly an engineering marvel. Suspension bridges were installed on both the Loop Trail and the Stillwater Lake Trail, and Eucott Hotsprings also saw some construction work. A pit toilet was installed, as well as a deck for easier access with plans for railings to be completed this year. These additions should make it easier for elders to access the hotsprings and will make the entire experience more comfortable for all users. 2014 Capital Plans include reopening the Atnarko campground, putting in a new day shelter at Fisheries Pool Campground, replac-

Prior to starting this work, BC Parks will be conducting archeological assessments with the Nuxalk Nation along the entire corridor. On the Central Coast, the Hakai Beach Institute students and staff have contributed tremendous time and effort, as well as in-kind donations creating boardwalks, look outs, benches, and continued trail building. The Coastal Guardian Watchmen have been integral in assisting the team

with monitoring the areas, trail work, and identifying areas of concern. “It’s always amazing when we can get school groups and volunteers to help with construction, and their work has helped to increase safety on the trails, enabling elders and the less able to visit these unique areas,” said Central Coast Area Supervisor Bree Matthewman. “We’re always open to more suggestions, and I hope our presentations have encouraged you to help out and become involved in the projects all along the central coast.”

Following each presentation was a brief Q&A session. Several residents questioned the process of how BC Parks identifies areas for protection and planning. BC Parks staff explained that this is a complex process of identifying existing risks to areas as well as existing recreational uses, BC Parks’ priorities and funding abilities, and ensuring that there is a balance of conservation and recreation

so that areas can be set up to be sustainable. A concerned resident also spoke to the recent legislation being tabled in Parliament that will amend the Parks Act to allow “research and feasibility studies” within parks boundaries. Residents feared that this could allow further development to parks by industry. Meeting facilitator (and former Minister) Joan Sawicki encouraged

any concerned residents to write letters to their MLA. If you would like to know more about any and all of the plans mentioned, they can be viewed at the Parks office and the BC Parks webpage. The public was encouraged to visit with staff, call, write, or e-mail anytime. Public consultations will be advertised in the paper, and your input is essential to the planning processes.

‘Few economic opportunities’ make for sad situation Dear Editor, In the February 27 edition of the Coast Mountain News, Hans Grenander observes in his Letter to the Editor, “Johnston Creek also presents one of the few economic opportunities available to the Wuikinuxw.” When you think about it, that’s kind of

sad. I started working down there in 1973. Just like here, a lot of wood was harvested and removed over the next 30 years. The provincial government collected a lot of royalties. The forest companies took a lot of profits for their shareholders, and they didn’t leave the people who live here much - not even a

ferry service. That’s the sad part. Those people up North shouldn’t have any illusions about what will happen when the last barrel of bitumen or the last cubic meter of natural gas comes out of the ground. Sincerely, Russ Hilland Bella Coola

Firewood cutting in Tweedsmuir Park results in downed power lines RCMP MEDIA RELEASE On March 4th 2014, the Bella Coola RCMP received a report of a downed tree that was completely blocking Highway 20, just east of the Fisheries Pool recreation

site, in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. A group of individuals felled a tree for firewood, and as this first tree fell, it hit another tree, causing this second tree to fall onto the adjacent power lines and block Highway 20.  The knocked

down power lines and blocked highway caused traffic to come to a stand still until BC Hydro crews could arrive to make the power lines safe, remove the tree from the highway and allow traffic to pass. The highway was closed for approxi-

mately one hour.  The downed power lines and tree on the highway caused a significant threat to public safety and may have caused serious injury or worse.  Fortunately, nobody suffered any injuries; the matter is still under investigation.

Fernie-based ‘stoke-folk’ band Shred Kelly to play Bella Coola Music Festival The story of Shred Kelly begins as honestly as their music. Friends who met through a local jam-night, and bega forming a bond over their love of music and the Great Canadian landscape. Since their inception, the Fernie, BC based ‘stoke-folk’ band, have garnered themselves sold out shows across Canada, performances at some of the premier festivals, and a growing list of awards and recognition from across the nation. This journey has already been quite a feat for an independent band nestled deep in the Kootenays, but for the indie-rockers and banjo-lovers that follow the tracks of Shred Kelly - they know this is just the beginning. Shred Kelly are preparing their Place your business card in our Business Directory for only $10 per issue.

third album, which will be recorded in June 2014 - and there's no doubt that the new material will again demonstrate their signature clawhammer banjo riffs, layered ambient synth, powerhouse rock, and sweet vocal harmonies. While many artists may struggle to capture the energy of a live show in the recording studio, for Shred Kelly - that energy doesn't only exist on stage. It's a part of their craft, and while they may resemble laidback BC ski bums – their music is as high-voltage as it can get, and that translates perfectly onto an album, or a packed dance floor. Shred Kelly will get you moving on the dance floor. Don’t miss their performances at the Bella Coola Music Festival on July 19 and 20,

Bella Coola Library showcases local naturalists extensive collection It’s been two years since local naturalist, historian, and World War II veteran Ron Mayo passed away at the age of 91. Ron led a rich and varied life. He served with distinction in the British Army, first in the infantry and then in the survey department. Mayo credits his survival to ‘damn luck.’ As he told CMNews in 2010, “Of the thirty guys I joined up with, all local guys from where I grew up, I could only find five of them after the war. I found a couple of their graves when I was walking through Normandy. I was just damn lucky.” A born naturalist, Ron took every chance he had to explore whatever environment he found himself in. Even during the war, when he wasn’t drawing maps in the survey department, Ron was off exploring the countryside. He found England too crowded after the war, so he moved to Canada. He ended up in the Okanagan and then Prince George. In 1965 he started coming down to Bella Coola for the steelhead fishing, forming a lifelong

connection with the owners of Stuie Place (then known as the Talchako Lodge). In 1986 he moved down to Stuie and stayed there until he was 80 years old. Ron devoted all of his time to observing nature and caretaking the Stuie property for Dennis Kuch and Katie Hayhurst. After he passed away in 2012, Joan Sawicki (the Executor of Ron’s estate) worked to fulfill his wishes that his natural history collection be made available to residents of Bella Coola. “With his extensive library of books, slides, film and video of natural history in the Valley, it has been a large task,” explained Sawicki. “However, I know Ron would be pleased that, with the cooperation of our local librarian and the Bella Coola Valley Museum Society, people in the community can now enjoy his life’s work.” A selection of Ron’s books have been set up as a special collection on a special shelf at the local library; they can be taken out on loan

Ron's collection is now available to residents through the local library.

and some of his plaster casts of animal footprints now hang on the wall of the library above the book collection. “Any item in the collection can be signed out just like any other library item,” said librarian Linda Chapman. “We are very fortunate that all of this valuable local information is now available to the public.”      Thanks to the gen-

erosity of Ron’s family in England, who wanted their share of the estate donated to the community that Ron loved, a donation was made to BCV Museum Society to enable a contract to convert 10 of Ron’s VHS video tapes to DVDs. The originals will remain the property of the BCVMS but copies are now available to be taken out on loan from the local library.

His gift is out of respect for both First Nations and endangered species.  Teska intends to relocate in Bella Coola because of the environmental destruction caused by fracking for gas in his beloved Appalachians. The limestone obtained for the eagle carving came from a salvaged monetary bank in Cameron, West Virginia. “The bald eagle, endangered in many places, is revered and protected in Bella Coola.

Bella Coola Little Theatre Guild celebrates 50 years By Ernest Hall “All the world’s a stage” wrote William Shakespeare some five centuries ago, and for generations, for weeks on end at different times of the year, Bella Coola Valley residents have turned the stage at Lobelco Hall into their own small world. From Japan to Manhattan, from Istanbul to Kansas, Valley women, men, and children of all ages have trod the boards at Lobelco, and at times other venues, turning the space for a brief time into another world for themselves and their audiences. This past year marked the 50th Anniversary of the Bella Coola Little Theatre Guild – officially formed in 1963 after decades of earlier live theatre in the Valley. Since the 1930’s Valley folks have been hamming it up on stage with performances at first produced by the Women’s Institute and the local PTA, events remembered fondly by Maureen Harrison, who recalls going to performances as a schoolgirl when her love of the theatre was instilled. The theatre those days was spearheaded by Reg Edwards, remembered by Maureen as “an Englishman who worked with Fisheries”. Since then, the casts, crews, directors, and producers of more than 100 productions have created a host of worlds on stage: They have set the audience on edge with the super-natural suspense of “The Monkey’s Paw”, and probed the existential questions raised in “Waiting for Godot”. They have examined the dark spaces of the human mind in the “Giocanda Smile”, the greed and guilt of “All My Sons”, and the bleak, destructive social forces that wreak ruin in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, the parody of 1950’s American fear of Communism. They have also sent their audiences into gales of hilarity with farcical comedy including mistaken identity and gender- swapping,

along with sweeping romantic musical productions such as “My Fair Lady” and “The Merry Widow”, with highly choreographed dance scenes, elaborate stage craft, and home-devised special effects. Too numerous to name, the Guild has been blessed with hundreds of participants over its 50 years, including the mechanical/electrical genius who fashioned home-made footlights – still in use decades after their creation, and a backstage light dimming apparatus of metal rods raised and lowered with cords into glass jugs of foulsmelling liquid and panels of sheet metal which, when shaken in a certain way, created rolling thunder synchronized with the lightening flashing onstage. Maureen recalls the stagecraft that went into making for faster set changes. “Nothing is worse for the director,” she says, “than seeing the audience sitting there while the crew is changing the scenery.” Along with the musicals, dramas, and comedies, the Guild also presented themed gala events – 15 of them in all. These included: An Hawaiian Gala, a Western Gala, a Space Gala (in 1969, the year of the first Moon landing), a Roman Gala, and a Mediterranean Cruise Gala. Other ambitious events with locally written scripts commemorated the BC/ Canada confederation - the Centennial Ball in 1971. EighteenthCentury seafaring expeditions were celebrated in 1977 with the Captain Cook Ball. The Guild celebrated its 25th anniversary with a big event in 1988, and the 1994 Norwegian Centennial Pageant commemorated the Valley’s Norwegian settlement of 1894. Throughout these times, Maureen, who directed 23 of the larger productions between 1969 and 2006, was among the stalwarts in the Guild. She recalls Molly Walker, motoring along Highway

Maureen Harrison conducts a resounding chorus in “The Pyjama Game” (2004), which she remembers as “the most fun” of 23 larger Guild productions that she directed. Pictured (Left to Right) are Tom Loosmore, Diana Saugstad, Meredith McIlwain, Duane Saugstad, Nancy Anderson, and Ray McIlwain

Trooper Joyce Mikkelson enjoys a pensive moment on the stage steps during rehearsal. Her formal stage training provided immeasurably to the Guild’s theatrical quality. 20 with a P-A system on her pickup truck announcing upcoming performances; and sporting a huge white rabbit costume around town to promote the whimsical comedy “Harvey”. She reminisces about the scene at the Ascot racetrack in “My Fair Lady” (1981) with the English ladies in their finery decked out in showy hats each stitched together by hand. Then there was the time in 1971 when the poster advertising the upcoming “Nude with Violin” raised the ire of certain Valley residents. She remembers actor Ken Corbould driving down regularly from Stuie for rehearsals of Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” in 1988; and similarly for his part in “Noises Off!” – probably one of the cleverest staging and funniest productions of

the 50 years. A fire in Lobelco Hall forced the Guild to take its 1974 – 1976 productions to the SAMS school auditorium. The huge cast of “Annie Get Your Gun” provided a major challenge, but as always, the obstacles were overcome, and the show went on. Renovations to Lobelco reduced the changingroom space, and cast access to “stage right” became choked off, sometimes requiring an actor to engage in a mad footrace back stage in order to reenter on cue “stage left”. Then there was the on-stage gunshot during rehearsal – a startling event to the visiting veterinarian who was conducting a clinic in the room behind. Maureen remembers the Guild’s “most

polished” production as “The Club” (1983), in which six women pretended to be members of an all-male club at a time when women were excluded from such places. She recalls the 1981 staging of “My Fair Lady” as the most challenging. But maybe not: She also remembers coming into the production of “Here’s Love” in 1993. This stage version of “Miracle on 34th Street” – complete with a Macey’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – had more than 50 performers in the cast. Maureen came into the production half-way through the rehearsals, taking on the task of directing the dozen or so children under 12 years old. While she has enjoyed all of her time in Guild productions through the years, Maureen says she had “the most fun” with “The Pyjama Game”, which she directed with Liz Endicott in 2004. “It was a lot of fun and work over the years,” she says, “but even so, it was always easy to find people to help These days, 50 years on, as times have changed in the Bella Coola Valley, so has the world of the Bella Coola Little Theatre Guild. With the aging population and the intrusion of other forms of entertainment, (television, movie rentals, and the Internet) the outside world is in every local living room, and fewer and fewer Valley residents have been

Pianist Verna Mikkelson Version provided the musical core for nearly every musical production by the Guild for four decades. stepping forward to become involved in amateur theatre. While many seem to have an interest in performing on the stage, it has become increasingly difficult to identify people to take on the role of directing and producing. While the Guild has historically engaged in at least one production annually and often two or three, the Guild has been inactive for four of the past seven years. The most recent Little Theatre Guild production (2012) was “The Noble Spaniard” a Somerset Maugham situation comedy directed by John Morton, who has been involved as an actor and director/producer since the 1970’s. Says John, “we do this (amateur theatre production) for ourselves, but also for our community.” He says live

theatre provides “not only satisfaction for the actors and everyone associated with a successful production, but great entertainment. The Theatre Guild has contributed tremendously to the Valley,” he adds. John believes that institutions such as the Theatre Guild “define the culture and fabric of our community and through that enrichment make it a more attractive place to live.” Those involved in the Guild over the years hope to see a new production in the works this year, and this requires Valley residents – those involved in the past and others who want to enjoy themselves participating in live theatre – to come forward and help open the curtain on a 51st season for the Bella Coola Little Theatre Guild.
