On April 14, 2014, crews from B.C.’s Wildfire Management Branch conducted a low-intensity, prescribed burn in the Bare Mountain area (Lat/ Long 49 10.790 x 115 15.750). The site is very close to Englishman’s Creek Provincial Recreation Site and the Sweetwater Lake Village at Koocanusa Reservoir. Burn boss Andre Chalabi said he was pleased with the day’s outcome. “Safety is our top priority when doing these burns,” Chalabi said, “and this was a safe, low-intensity event—exactly how we planned it. “The ignition crew did

a great job of lighting up and the containment crew made sure the burn stayed in ‘the box’ at all times.” The 231-hectare site had been logged in 2006 and thinned by Galloway Lumber Company, (Job Opportunity Program crews) in 2008. The prior treatment made the burn easier to initiate in the extremely narrow spring ‘burn window’—when temperature, humidity and wind conspired to create safe and effective conditions. Trench ER Team Leader Randall Harris said: “The burn seems to have hit our resource objectives—it carried better than we expected.” Harris will return to the site in about six weeks to observe and measure the burn treatment results. The area is grazing habitat for Rocky Mountain elk and both types of deer (white-tailed and mule), and is also part of a local ranch’s grazing unit for its cattle. The resource objectives of the controlled burn were to: • Reduce fuels less than 5 cm in diameter by 80% • Kill 80% of ingrown trees less than 3 metres tall • Maintain seedbank and nutrients by creating a moderate impact fire over 75% of the burn area • Rejuvenate grasses and avoid killing grass growing points • Lift live tree canopy to 1.5 metres • Cover 75% of the burn area. The Trench ER program, working with the Wildfire Management Branch, will conduct a handful of prescribed burns in the coming weeks, as long as weather allows. Every effort is made to ensure smoke levels are tolerable, burns are safe and the treatment is effective.

Challenges of local government “Think Globally, Act Locally.” The actual quote has been attributed to a number of different people but the principle is said to have been put forward initially by a Scots Planner, Patrick Geddes, as far back as 1915. Whatever its origins, it is becoming more widely accepted that effective action, even on global issues, begins at the local level. Not only is this a matter of individual choice and responsibility but also an issue for local governments. As senior levels of government download or back away from responsibilities for affordable housing, health and social services, and the environment, local governments are increasingly called upon to address these needs. At the same time, municipalities across the country face infrastructure deficits and rising costs for core services. Property taxation is one of the few options available for local governments to raise funds yet municipal councils must attempt to keep taxes within affordable levels. Daunting? Yes, but also a challenge - especially when considered in the context of outside influences. Climate change may be a subject for debate but, using water as an example, there can be little doubt that a trend towards warming temperatures and an earlier spring runoff is already having an impact on our own ability to meet the peak summer demands. Upcoming councils will have to consider strategies to address this issue by way of increased storage capacity, water me- 1510 - 2nd Street North, Cranbrook, BC, V1C 3L2 Telephone (250) 489-3455 Toll Free 1-800-665-2382 Classified E-Mail: Advertising E-Mail: Editorial E-Mail: Distribution Email: Open Mon. to Fri. 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

tering, or other means to reduce consumption. The solution will likely be costly and economic factors outside our immediate control will influence our ability to pay for these and other improvements necessary to meet the city’s needs. Taking steps to ensure that services are provided to support a vibrant and healthy community is an ongoing task that requires creativity and an ability to collaborate with other city organizations as well as senior levels of government. All of these issues at some point become topics for council discussion and debate. Despite the direct role of local government in many areas of our daily lives, voter turnout is abysmally low, averaging about 32% across the province. By comparison, the voter turnout for federal and provincial elections is nearly double. Many reasons are given including cynicism about politicians generally, apathy, voter alienation, and the difficulty in getting information to make informed choices. Another factor is simply the number of candidates on a municipal ballot. Federal and provincial ridings are represented by a single candidate while municipal governments have positions for several councillors as well as a mayor. Disturbingly, voter registration is lowest among the 18 – 24 age group. Regardless of voter turnout, municipalities must continue to function. The question for individual electors is whether or not you wish to take part in the decisions that affect you and your com-

munity. Information on City of Cranbrook functions is provided together with contact information, council minutes and agendas on the city website: www. Council meetings are open and later televised. As we approach the fall election, there will also be one or more forums to provide an opportunity to hear and question potential candidates. For those who choose to put their names forward and stand for office, it is worth noting that local government is non-partisan. Each councillor is responsible and accountable to electors for his or her own position when voting on city matters. Serving on council involves a considerable commitment of time with limited financial remuneration but for someone interested in taking an active role to ensure that our city is the best it can be, there are less tangible rewards. Ultimately, the choice to have a say is yours.

Manage joint pain naturally

Arthritis and joint pain can dramatically lower a person’s quality of life. With our active and aging population, joint pain will become an increasingly common medical complaint affecting many of our active boomers. There are many ways you can reduce your pain naturally, avoiding having to use pain reducing drugs that can affect your digestive system and liver. Even more importantly, while NSAID pain relievers take pain away very effectively, they also accelerate the rate of joint degeneration. People who use NSAID’s report lower levels of pain and have joint disease that gets worse faster than those who don’t use NSAID’s, a significant side effect that makes NSAID’s less appealing. The most commonly used pain reducing medicine used in Germany reduces pain without side effects. It is a blend of natural medicines that have anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties. The most commonly used blend combines serratiopeptidase, bromelain, curcumin, papain and a blend of plant enzymes. These natural agents work in a number of ways.

They help to digest what are called circulating immune complexes that trigger inflammatory reactions and elevate pain. These natural agents also help to modulate hormones called prostaglandins. Some prostaglandins promote pain and inflammation while others reduce pain and inflammation. Fish oils also help to promote prostaglandins that reduce pain. Curcumin, an ingredient found in the herb tumeric, is the most widely studied natural medicine on the planet. It has been found to promote healing, reduce pain, lower the incidence of cancer among many other benefits that come without the risk of side effects. Another area that must be addressed is the identification of food sensitivity or allergy. If you are eating foods that aggravate your body you will have more joint pain. While each person has a unique blend of food sensitivity I have found that wheat is one of the most important foods to eliminate for healthy joint function. Changing your diet, adding in some health natural medicines and staying active are key to reducing your joint pain.

Currently I have completed 3 certifications with them: CHEK Exercises Coach, where I learned how to assess posture and create programs aimed at restoring balance on different levels, be it through workouts or lifestyle changes such as improving nutrition and hydration, balancing sleep and wake cycles, decreasing the risk of exposure to fungus and parasites, or decreasing stress levels. CHEK Practitioner Level 1, where I was taught to measure muscle length/tension, looking at whether muscles were too tight or too loose, and incorporating that in training programs by strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles. CHEK Practitioner Level 2, my latest certification, where I was introduced to common lumbar spine dysfunctions and how to prescribe stretches and exercises that are safe and effective for clients that are cleared to exercise with such a condition.

School District 5 is inviting all three year olds to school!

Ready, Set, Learn is an initiative that recognizes that families need positive connections with the school system and community agencies that provide relevant resources and information. All public elementary schools in Southeast Kootenay School District will be offering an opportunity for all three year olds to come to their neighbourhood school (children born in 2011 who have turned three by the date of the RSL event). This event is a partnership between the province, the district, and the early childhood teachers in Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford. Ready, Set, Learn will include opportunities such as a tour of the school, a visit to the kindergarten classroom, activities, refreshments, displays or presentations by school children. Parents and caregivers will receive helpful tips for supporting their preschooler’s learning and development. They will also be provided with information about local services available. Each child will receive a learning kit. Four year olds, those children who will be entering kindergarten in September 2014, will be invited to Kindergarten Orientation in their neighborhood school.

Forty-four years after the first Earth Day was celebrated in the United States, on April 22, 1970, this special event is now celebrated around the world. Earth Day gives us all an opportunity to learn more about the challenges we face regarding the environment. Climate change, pollution, reduced biodiversity, and other threats are gaining ground and this is definitely not the time to ignore them. But adopting a defeatist attitude won’t help either — quite the contrary! This is the time to roll up our sleeves, as we all have a role to play in improving the health of our planet. What can you do? Many of your actions have a direct impact on the well-being of the earth. At home, at work, or at school, you can reuse, recycle, and compost in order to produce as little garbage as possible. Leave your car at home whenever possible and walk, bike, and use public transportation. Think about using less water; just the fact of turning off the tap while you’re brushing your teeth will save the need to process and clean thousands of litres of drinking water! Above all, talk to anyone who will listen about the importance of contributing to the health of our environment. On April 22, more than a billion people spread across 192 countries will hear the call of our planet and make concrete gestures towards its survival. Will you join us?

nadian Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fisheries Commission present the evening on April 24, 7:30 p.m. at Key City Theatre in Cranbrook and on April 25, 7 p.m. at Centre 64 in Kimberley. Tickets for the evening are available in advance for $10 online at or for $13 at the door. Watermark is a feature documentary film that brings together diverse stories from around the globe about our relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it and the consequences of that use. We see massive floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world – the Xiluodu, six times the size of the Hoover. We visit the barren desert delta where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches

the ocean, and the waterintensive leather tanneries of Dhaka. We witness how humans are drawn to water, from the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach to the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, where thirty million people gather for a sacred bath in the Ganges at the same time. We speak with scientists who drill ice cores two kilometers deep into the Greenland Ice Sheet, and roam the sublime pristine watersheds of Northern British Columbia. Every living thing requires water. We humans interact with it in a myriad of ways, numerous times a day. But how often do we consider the complexity of that interaction? And, unless confronted by scarcity, when do we meditate on its ubiquity in creating, sustaining and enriching life? Shot in stunning 5K ul-

tra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial perspectives, this film shows water as a terraforming element and the scale of its reach, as well as the magnitude of our need and use. This is balanced by forays into the particular: a haunting memory of a stolen river, a mysterious figure roaming ancient rice terraces, the crucial data hidden in a million year old piece of ice, a pilgrim’s private ritual among thousands of others at the water’s edge. Watermark is directed by multiple award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky, and is the third part of Burtynsky’s Water project, which includes a book Burtynsky: Water and a major photographic exhibition. Filmed and produced by Nicholas de Pencier and three years in the making, it is a logical

extension of the trio’s previous collaboration, Manufactured Landscapes. In Watermark, the viewer is immersed

in a world defined by a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted - until it’s gone.

olive oil jars beverage bottles

Dishes, picture frames, trinkets, ceramics, light bulbs, window glass, etc. should NEVER go in the glass recycling bin. They contaminate the load. All lids should be removed prior to the glass being placed in the bin. The Glass Only bins are flat on top with two round holes in the lid and are clearly marked GLASS ONLY. For the location of a glass recycling bin near you, contact the RDEK.

50,000 kg of unused or expired medicines are collected each year

This March, I went to my Great Grandpa’s 100th birthday party. Lots of people didn’t believe that I could have a Grandpa that was 100 years old. Even my brothers and sisters found it hard to believe we could have a Grandpa that was so old! My Mom said Grandpa has lived to be 100 years old because he has taken care of himself, worked hard and has done good things in his life. This year BC 4H is 100 years old and like my Great Grandpa, you don’t get to 100 if you don’t take care of things, work hard and do good. I have learned lots of good things in 4H like public speaking, running a meeting, helping my community and raising animals. But just because BC 4H is 100 years old does not mean it is outdated. Today, lots of people are talking about how important it is to know where their food comes from. I have heard words like sustainability, food security and the local food movement. I didn’t understand what

We care for all animals

these words meant at first, but now I realize I am contributing to these ideas from the things I am learning and doing in 4H. Who said being 100 isn’t cool? 4H members in our area contribute to the local food market by raising animals for sale as 4H projects. This year I am raising a market swine. Like all the 4H kids that raise market animals, I am learning about good husbandry (care and feeding of animals), showmanship, business skills, record keeping and the livestock industry. All 4H members sign the Creed of the 4H Stock Keeper which is a promise to raise your animal with respect and kindness. June 1st, 2014 is the Cranbrook & District 4H Show & Sale at the Wycliffe Exhibition Grounds. 4H members participate in a showmanship event, are judged in a market class which is followed by the auction sale of all of the market animals. This year we have 28 steers, 13 lamb and 16 swine up for sale. I think Show & Sale is one of the scariest but also one of the most fun days. You get to show off your animal and all your hard work and spend time cheering on your 4H friends. I would like to invite the community to come to our Show & Sale. It is a great day to buy locally raised meat or just to come and watch the 4H members demonstrating their showmanship skills. We will be hosting an information meeting for the public on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 7 p.m. at Parkland School. The presentation will talk about how the auction works including proxy bids, cost comparisons, transportation of animals, butchering and any additional questions people have. 4H members with market animal projects will also be available to talk to. So, come and meet your farmer. Let 100 years of tradition feed you. Contact us at for more information. A11

Kimberley is about to get its own weekday Farmer’s Market Submitted

This summer, Wildsight will bring a true farmers’ market to downtown Kimberley. Shoppers will find local vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, bread, and honey, plus hot food, fresh baking, and crafts from local artisans. “It’s all about make

it, grow it, or bake it at the farmers’ market,” said Erna Jensen-Shill, market manager, “so you can be certain that everything you buy at the market is locally made, baked, or grown.” On Thursday nights from 5 to 7:30 p.m., the farmers’ market vendors will be loading up their tables with

local food and crafts along Howard Street in downtown Kimberley, between Deer Park and Boundary. For 2014, the market will run for the peak of the local harvest season, from July 3rd to Sept 11th. “After the great success of the Cranbrook Farmer’s Market over the past 5 years,” said

aim is to give locals food options that reduce the environmental costs of large scale agriculture and long-distance food transport. “We really wanted to give local farmers and growers an outlet to sell locally,” said Jess Windle, Wildsight’s Food Sustainability coordinator, “and to help support new farming and food production businesses in the area. Of course, locals get fresher, healthier, and tastier food with local production too.” Wildsight has a great lineup of local food producers and artisans ready for the summer market. If you grow or produce local food or make crafts, the Kimberley Farmers’ Market is a great way A13

to connect with local shoppers. Vendors can learn more about selling at the market at or by calling market manager Erna Jensen-Shill at 250 427 2535, extension 224. “There is plenty of work to do in setting up for the market every week and keeping things running smoothly,” said Jensen-Shill, “so if you want to volunteer to help out, please get in touch.” “We have some special plans in the works for the first market on July 3rd,” said Jensen-Shill, “so get your reusable shopping bags ready and mark your calendars for a fun evening.” Photo submitted

BC First Nations Aboriginal connection to SD5 success

Dr. Martin Brokenleg.

Each year local K – 12 teaching staff from across the East Kootenay collaborate on professional development during a Regional Specialists Association (RSA) Day. This year’s RSA day took place last week and highlighted renowned keynote speaker, Dr. Martin Brokenleg. Brokenleg is co-author of the internationally best selling book, Reclaiming Youth at Risk and co-founder of the Circle of Courage, an approach to youth guidance that draws on Native tribal wisdom in conjunction with early youth-work pioneer and youth development work. It outlines

the four essential elements every child needs in order to flourish and thrive as belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. “As a District we understand this connection”, said Trustee Trina Ayling, Trustee representative for the Aboriginal E n h a n c e m e n t Agreement (AEA). “It’s important for all kids, yes, but especially for those students of Aboriginal ancestry as it speaks directly to who they are culturally.” According to Jason Tichauer, the new Director of Student Learning and Aboriginal Education this approach pays off with higherthan-provincial-average graduation rates for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students. “Provincially, grad rates averaged 62% for Aboriginal and 80% for non-Aboriginal students over the past five years while SD5 averaged 73% and 83% respectively. There are a number of factors responsible for this success and addressing the whole child based on Aboriginal principals is

one of them.” Currently, fourteen percent of SD5 students are of Aboriginal ancestry. The province provides annual targeted funding to support Aboriginal learning. These supports include Aboriginal Education Support Workers (AESW), an Elder’s program and the Welcoming Spaces

Project, an initiative to increase awareness of Aboriginal culture throughout SD5. For more information on Aboriginal education or supports, contact Jason Tichauer @ jason.tichauer@sd5.

RDEK support for Key City Theatre, MBSS

This week’s feature:


2 WHEELS! Best Quality and Price in the Kootenays North end of the Strip 250-426-1882 tf: 855-815-7575

On April 4th, 2014, the Key City Theatre Society (KCTS) made a presentation to the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) to request their support on the combined Mount Baker School replacement and new regional

educational services and community resources together in a new high school building. According to Mount Baker Replacement Committee chair, Trustee Chris Johns, the process began with extensive public consultations with the community* that led to the determination that Key City Theatre should be a main community component within a replace-

theatre project. Since 2008, the SD5 Board of Education has been working on replacement of Mount Baker Secondary School (MBSS) as a Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC), an initiative designed to bring

ment MBSS/NLC. On December 20, 2012 SD5, the KCTS and the City of Cranbrook reaffirmed their relationship with a signed partnership agreement in the design of theatre space in the new MBSS. In February, the trio extended an invitation to MP David Wilks and RDEK Board Chair, Rob Gay to discuss the possibility of expanding their partnership to

better reflect the cultural diversity and geographical reach of the Key City Theatre and its patrons. “The Theatre is dedicated to expanding community involvement by presenting professional artists spanning a wide spectrum of art and culture”, says Sandra Cave, chair of the KCTS. “As a result of these efforts, over one-third of patrons are from somewhere else in the region.” “This is much bigger than just Cranbrook”, agreed SD5 Board Chair, Frank Lento. “Fundamental to the success of this project is the ability to bring together other community partners to help build the project. Both MLA, Bill Bennett and most recently MP David Wilks have expressed support for this initiative. The next logical step is to engage the Regional District.” During the presentation to the RDEK, Lento made three requests –that they provide letters of support for any applications for grants, that they set aside a Reserve Fund commencing in 2015 towards replacement of the Key City Theatre; and that they consider contributing to the replacement and future operations of the Key City Theatre. In response to these requests, the RDEK carried a motion to provide letters of support for applications for grants and a motion to send a request to staff to report back on the feasibility of setting aside a reserve fund and/or contribute to the replacement and future operations of the theatre. Completion of the report is expected later this year.

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road.

Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel: competes on performance at a price


The already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness.

Zack Spencer


By Zack Spencer

The introduction of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee showcased the direction of the new Fiat-Chrysler partnership. It went on to win more awards that any other SUV; in fact, I chose it as one of my favourite vehicles that year. Sales have been strong for not only Jeep but the entire Chrysler group. Freshness has been into each new vehicle and this latest 2014 EcoDiesel version is another example. For this model year, the Grand Cherokee gets a refreshed front and rear, plus interior tweaks and a thrifty diesel under the hood. Looks

The most noticeable updates for 2014 include a thinner front grille, narrower front headlights with LED accents. This really makes the latest model pop; especially when you compare it to the last model. The EcoDiesel option is only available in two trim levels, and this an expensive vehicle. The Overland is the cheapest diesel and it starts at roughly $58,000, $3000 more than a V6 model

but the same price as the V8. The top of range Summit diesel starts at $62,000. In comparison, the base VW Touareg diesel starts at $55,000 but most of the other German mid-sized SUVs with a diesel, like the ML from Mercedes or the X5 from BMW also start in the low $60,000 range. Inside

One of the biggest changes at Chrysler has been the attention to detail now placed on interior design and refinement. The latest U-connect computer interface is one of the best in the business; many high-end makers could learn a thing or two from Chrysler. The large 8.4-inch screen is one of the biggest on the market and it is very quick to the touch, going from one function to the next is logical and responsive. Pairing a smartphone takes under 30 seconds and the best feature is the map screen, which enables the embedding of a picture in the same way as picture-inpicture TV does. The dash is covered in stitched leather and the cabin overall is simple and elegant. All EcoDiesel models come with leather seats and the back seats can even be heated. Drive

The biggest change for 2014 is the introduction of an all-new 3.0-litre direct inject turbocharged V6 diesel engine along with an 8-speed automatic. With 420 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine just rockets away from a light and cruises effortlessly on the highway. There is a big premium to get this engine over a V6, or lower trim level V8 gasoline versions, but there are some compelling reasons to choose it. Fuel economy is number one. This heavy truck is rated at 9.8 L/100km in the city and only 7.0L on the highway. With aggressive driving and mostly city, I averaged 12L. I did notice on highway runs that the fuel economy improved radically and quickly. The towing capacity of the

EcoDiesel is the same as the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 at 7200 lbs, but this truck gets substantially better fuel economy. For those that drive a lot without a trailer, the improvement in fuel economy is something to factor in. If you don’t drive a lot each year, the diesel option might not be worth the added cost. Verdict

Chrysler considers the Jeep Grand Cherokee a premium offering but I would not put this on a par with the Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q5 or a very nicely equipped VW Touareg. It is a very nice truck with as much diesel power and efficiency as the competition but the German brands have been at the whole diesel thing a lot

$50,000, not $58,000. If you drive a lot or tow, the diesel might be worth it, but as it stands now the already capable and luxurious gasoline

Confessions of a Curber I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through, or the province (bcregistryservices. As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

It’s all about preparation when it comes to moving your family out of your old home and into your new one. The secret to moving house without stress, or almost, can be summed up in one word: organization. From the moment you decide to move, start making a list of everything that has to be done and stick it on the fridge door. This will help you to meet all the deadlines and get ready for the big, stressful day. As soon As you know The dATe oF The move • Reserve the date with a moving company. Choose a wellestablished business, and don’t rely solely on quotes. It’s better to pay a touch more for good service. • If you rent a truck, contact family and friends who could give you a helping hand. Be sure to call or send out an e-mail to remind them a few days before the move. • Change your mailing address.

Construction Questions How Quick Can You Mop up the Water in Your Basement? by Menno Dueck Heavy spring rain allowed Jeremy to continue to improve his bailing skills. Out came the buckets, mops and fans, not a new experience for Jeremy. In fact, he’s embraced the challenge and is sure he can shave off a few minutes from last year’s record. Partner Ellen dreams of a day when the basement can be used for something more than storing plastic bins of Christmas decorations and kids’ old art projects.

Rain and/or a quick thaw while the ground is still frozen are ideal weather conditions for water seepage. With the ground unable to act as a sponge, water will find its way to the lowest point. If that point is next to your house, the chance of having water seepage increases. Prevention starts with assessing the flow of water. Take a walk around your house and yard, in the rain, to see where the water gathers. Lack of gutter maintenance may be the issue. Do the gutters flow freely to the downpipes or are they sloped wrong, have holes, rusty Corporate Office Koocanusa Publications, Suite 100, 100 - 7th Ave. S., Cranbrook, BC V1C 2J4areas or cracked joints where wa• 1-800-663-8555 • Phone (250) 426-7253 • Fax (250) 426-4125 • E-mail: ter is running or dripping next to the foundation? Are they clear 1/4 Acre Lots starting at $79,000.00 of debris?

gutters and downpipes are not repairable, then replace. Do you have gardens that butt into the house? Every time you water that garden, particularly if the sprinkler(s) hit the house, you are watering the foundation, too. Might be a good idea to incorporate a gravel “path” between garden and house and make sure any landscape slopes away from the house on all sides. Other conditions, such as slope of yard and cracks should be discussed with your contractor. If your yard (or your neighbour’s yard) slopes toward your house, moisture (rain/thaw/sprinkler) will collect and run to your house; additional drainage around the perimeter of the house may be required. If there are cracks, they will need to be sealed from the outside which could involve excavation. Seepage can be expensive (damages not usually covered by insurance), create potential health risks for your family (mold, fungus), and make your house difficult to sell (musty smell). Now is the time to get into prevention mode. Leave the bailing to Jeremy. Past articles are posted on under Blog.

It keeps more jobs close The healthier our to home businesses are, the more We can’t keep or create jobs locally if our tax revenue we gain region isn’t in good economic shape. It’s just good logic.

Thriving companies are able to grow, and as they do, their tax contributions grow. This means revenue for our municipality and benefits for everyone.

Buying locally is logical, unavoidable, and efficient. It is an important strategy for keeping our region dynamic in every way. Together, if we shop local, we can help our community grow and thrive!

It supports economic investment in our region

An economically dynamic region attracts investment. The more investment there is, the more our municipality and region earn in tax revenues. This, in turn, attracts other investors. Investors are like consumers — they are attracted to deals that work!

It makes a difference to the environment

Buying locally made products and doing business with companies from our region is a way to be active in protecting the environment. The less our goods are transported from far away, the less we contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.

It helps support community organizations Our non-profit organizations receive a lot of financial support from business people in the region, and these donations are essential. When our local economy is in good health, our organizations are in good health.
