The Auditor General for Local Government has published her findings, and there is certainly room for improvement. The document wasn’t intended for publication until reports of all 5 local municipalities were ready later in 2014, but was rushed to release because of “serious, unresolved issues… that require urgent and prompt steps by the City of Rossland.” During their investigation into the requested arena roof replacement project, enough concerns were raised that an additional six projects, all between 2010 and 2012, were audited. The report concluded that, in addition to the conflict of interest and unauthorized cost overruns of the arena project, all of the audited undertakings suffered from: • Failure to follow City’s own procurement policies • Lack of documentation of key project information • Payments made without contracts in place • Insufficient oversight of council on expenditures and project amendments While the AGLG claims to have been created “to strengthen British Columbians’ confidence in their local governments’ stewardship of public assets and the achievement of value for money in their operations”, Mayor Granstrom feels they fell short of this goal.

City Report Card Looks Grim

•Continued from front page the AGLG, retorted. “We were told they

Rossland invited the auditor to assist in identifying system improvements as a result of what occurred with its former building inspector. In return, the city received a detailed audit that not only highlighted alleged missteps with the arena project but also criticised the implementation and performance of six additional projects. “We all need help but we don’t need to get poked in the eye when we ask for it,” he said. “I think this information could have been presented in a more constructive manner.” He’s referring to the scathing report that concludes city staff did not adequately protect the interests of its taxpayers, backing up this claim mostly by noting the city did not get value for its money on the Rossland Arena roof repairs. This is not new information for Rossland, which is in the midst of suing its former building inspector in hopes of recovering unaccountable funds from that project. The City did not expect a strain on resources to complete this audit, which Granstrom said equated to about two months of work for two staff members. “The written response we received from council on April 22nd was very positive,” Basia Ruta, chief auditor for

were thankful, and that it had been a positive learning experience that will lead to improvement and growth.” When asked about the use of local resources, Ruta responded, “A typical audit such as this takes over a year and we completed it in nine months. The seriousness of our findings, a dearth of documents and lack of access to decision makers naturally resulted in more time and effort on our parts.” Finally, in response to the suggestion that the report could have been more constructive, Ruta stated, “We understand that audits are not easy things for people to deal with. We work with transparency and professional rigour, as is our mandate. We wanted the City to recognize fundamental gaps in their system, but we also want other municipalities to see what could happen when certain policies are not in place.” Rossland has crafted an action plan (on page 50 of the audit) which addresses many of the concerns outlined in the report. Council and City staff have been implementing these changes for the past two years. The office of the AGLG is very pleased with the action plan that council presented in response to their findings, and recognizes that a serious effort is currently being made to address deficiencies.

Rosslander celebrated Castlegar for decades of service

By Lana Rodlie Rossland News

Gordon Player exudes happiness. The man with the infectious smile was recently honoured at his retirement from the Nelson and District Credit Union for the 36 years he spent as a director. “I got a standing ovation,” he said with astonishment. “And my wife got flowers.” This was Player’s third retirement. The 72-year-old Rosslander retired from teaching after 39 years, then spent the next nine years as an instructor in the UBC Teacher Education Program at Selkirk College. He retired again, this time with an award from UBC in appreciation for the many years of dedication in the preparation of world teachers. And during all that time, he had the reputation of never missing a day’s work. “I’m sure I might have missed maybe 10 days in 39 years,” he said. “Back in those days, you only phoned in sick if you were actually sick.” And Player enjoyed impeccable health throughout his life although his hearing loss irritates him. “If it wasn’t for that, I’d still be teaching. I loved it. I loved the kids.” Player grew up in Warfield, married one of two sisters he and his brother met a hockey game. (His brother married the other sister.) He got his degree at UBC and Masters at Gonzaga in Spokane. He did a stint in the Air Force and then began his teaching career in Fruitvale. “My wife was from Rossland and when we got married, we lived in a basement suite in Montrose. Joyce was teaching there and I was teaching in Fruitvale.” They moved to one of the first-built houses in Warfield, built a home in Rossland and raised two boys. “I taught up to Grade 8, mostly Grade 7,” he said. “Had a great time. Also coached basketball with senior boys and junior girls.” So how did he come to serve on a credit union board? “Back in 1978, I was asked by Don McKay if I’d like to be a director with the Rossland Credit Union,” he said. “I didn’t know what he was talking about.”

Mental Health Week

There are myriad problems that can present themselves daily. They can be annoying or stressful to varying degrees, and cumulatively, a legitimate concern. There are countless ways for people to vent about common, everyday issues. But millions of Canadians suffer daily with an often unseen and unarticulated affliction: depression. There still exists a stigma towards those who suffer mental health problems, and that’s unfair and unnecessary. One in five Canadians will have to deal with some form of mental illness in their life. Many of the people who are diagnosed do hold down jobs and have a mortgage. Commonly, those afflicted with depression will isolate themselves or feel acute anxiety in social situations. Depression is different than just feeling low. Someone experiencing it grapples with feelings of severe despair over an extended period of time. Almost every aspect of their life can be affected, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Many suffer in silence because they fear how they will be perceived by their friends and family. This should not be. Clinical depression is not a failing or weakness of character. It is a medical condition, which can often be mitigated through a combination of several factors such as therapy, lifestyle changes and/or medication. Mental Health Week (May 5-11) was created to raise awareness about these issues. Make the time to get educated. Also, on May 24, Olympian Clara Hughes will be riding in the West Kootenay with Clara’s Big Ride for Bell Let’s Talk About. The event is a 110 day, 12,000 kilometre journey around Canada to help raise awareness and action for mental health and help end the stigma around mental illness.

Rossland’s free ride bus exceeds all expectations

By Art Harrison Times Staff

Ski season has been over for almost a month and the results are in for Tourism Rossland’s data gathering effort on the Free Ride shuttle bus service provided in the Golden City over the winter, and the results are even surprising the people who ran the service. “There were way more passengers than I expected,” said Deanne Steven, executive director of Tourism Rossland. “It was so many people I couldn’t believe it. It was an overwhelming project for all involved.” According to the report on the service released by the non-profit organization, over 19,000 passengers took advantage of the free trans-

portation between Rossland and Red Mountain averaging 170 passengers per day, 14,000 of which were local or seasonal residents. The organization gathered over 122 pages of data over the season to track the usage of the service and try to gauge its effect on the local economy to assist with future planning. According to the study, hotel stays, including Red Mountain Resort accommodation and in Rossland, saw an increase of over 60 per cent and group bookings rose 100 per cent making the 2013/2014 season the best year for the industry since tracking began in 2006. Steven said that a side benefit of having the free

service available seemed to be as much for people working at Red Mountain as well as others in the food and beverage industry around the hill. Although skiers, boarders, and staff rode for free Steven said it wasn’t really without cost. “This is a model where it’s not really free,” she said. “Forty-two local businesses paid the ticket for people to use the bus.” In addition to the local businesses picking up $42,000 of the tab, a matching amount was contributed to the service from the Resort Municipality Initiative, a rural B.C. economic development project under the provincial Ministry of Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Train-

ing. For the future, Steven says they are looking at expanding the service by extending the bus route into lower Rossland and out to the Black Jack cross country ski area, using a larger bus to avoid having to leave people behind when they are overcapacity, and possibly tying in the route and schedule to accommodate students at Seven Summits, the old RSS, and Ecole des Sept Sommets in case School District 20 withdraws bus service next year. “I think we provided a tremendous service for Rossland residents,” said Steven. “In the process I’m learning more than I ever expected about public transportation.”

Mountain bike academy IDA KORIC Rossland News

Rossland has established itself as a premier mountain biking destination, and as a spectacular host for a Ski Academy; the next logical step seemed to be an Academy for Mountain Biking. Volunteer and Vision for Small Schools Society member, Robin Hethey, familiar with the flexibility of SelfDesign courses, and the popularity of the sport locally, knew that she could create an accredited course that blended learning and passion. The courses are open to anyone in grades eight through twelve, but only students in grades nine and up are able to earn high school credits as the courses are designated as “senior”. Those currently enrolled, or choosing to enroll, in the SelfDesign program are able to attain such credits, with a significant reduction in course costs. The Trail Building course runs Mondays until June 23, featuring instructor Nate Lott

of D.I.G. to Ride. Red Mountain has invited students to develop a new trail that will join the existing “Pay Dirt”. In April, students had already begun to use geo-mapping software to envision what a new trail may look like, and had created websites to catalogue their learning journeys. The May/June portion of the course involves hands-on building, where students will learn about tools and techniques, trail design with focus on landscape integration, berms, corners and jumps, all under a theme of sustainability. The Mountain Biking skills course will focus on many aspects of the sport, including advanced downhill and freeride components, improving confidence on technical sections of trails, speed and endurance. Also included is an introduction to first aid and a Jr. Mountain Bike Instructor segment that provides potential future job opportunities. The trails and parks to be ridden will be determined based

on the interest and level of the group, with the possibility of out of town excursions. Shuttles and video analysis of the riders are included as part of the training. The course runs Mondays and Fridays until June 27th, led by Kootenay Mountain Bike Coaching instructors Ryan Kuhn and Natasha Lockey. For grade nine to twelve learners enrolled in SelfDesign, pricing for both courses is $100, or no charge for only the Trail Building component. Grade eight students with SelfDesign pay $550 for both courses, and $150 for Trail Building only. The cost to those outside of the SelfDesign umbrella is $600 and $200, respectively. For more information on program content or requirements, contact For information on course enrollment or attaining high school credits, visit the SelfDesign website at

Dance in Rossland is alive and well Submitted Rossland News

The performers of Rossland-based studio Kootenay Danceworks are finding success on stages across the province. Recent performances at Kiwanis Festival competitions have resulted in seven local dancers receiving invites to the BC Performing Arts Festival being held in Penticton this coming June. Representing the Kootenays in the provincial competition will be Bethany Johnson, with other local girls, Sabrina Neufeld, Sally Turnbull and Charlotte McKay representing Kamloops due to their invitations via the festival in that region. The adjudicators also saw great potential in Emilia Hofmann, Brynn Streadwick and Ali Ferguson, who have been invited to participate in classes and performances at the provincials in a non-competitive role. The Performing Arts Festival gathers 450 of the province’s most promising dancers, actors, musicians and poets. In addition to time on-stage, participants learn through workshops and dances, and have the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals from across British Columbia. In addition to the provincial competition, both Sally Turnbull and Marit Kassels

have been accepted to the Alberta Ballet Professional Division Summer School. Young miss Turnbull was also accepted to a 6-week program with Alvin Ailey Summer School in New York.

The paid trail crews who build and maintain local hiking and biking trails for the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society (KCTS) will be getting a helping hand from volunteers over the next few weeks. The KCTF crew will be joining helpers this Sunday in Trail to work on the Sunningdale portion of the new Miral Heights-to-Sunningdale trail. “We’ll be meeting at the bottom of the water tower hill in Sunningdale at 9 a.m. Sunday,” said Jason Proulx of Gerick Cycle and Sports, the event’s sponsor again this year. “We’ll be providing the snacks and drinks and tools are provided by KCTS but extra shovels are always welcome.” The trail network around Rossland will be getting attention as well when KCTS and volunteer crews will be celebrating the 10th annual Trails Day by getting out the picks and shovels May 31. Isaac Saban, president of KCTS, says that activity is definitely ramping up now that the warmer, drier weather has arrived. “We generally spend the winter putting together funding proposals to the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) and City of Rossland,” Saban said. “That’s what pays for the three-man crew over the summer and covers the trails manager’s wage, parttime over the winter and full-time over the summer.” The proposals were successful again this year with the society receiving $68,000 from the RDKB and $21,000 from Rossland. “The funding has been approved to finish work on the Sunningdale trail, there’s about a half kilome-

tre to complete,” said Saban. “You can travel on it now but there’s still some finishing work to do.” Seeing the trails system around Trail get developed has been a personal ambition of KCTS director, Hal Harrison. “This is recreation at a fraction of the conventional cost,” Harrison said. “The recent recreation review underscored how expensive facilities are to build, maintain, and operate. The review also showed that outdoor trails are the recreation facility most used by people in Trail and the leading thing they’d like to see their recreation dollars spent on.” In addition to the work in the valley the KCTS crews will be extending the trail system in Montrose to the

Old Orchard trail from the flag pole above the Beaver Valley community and working on the trails around Red Mountain in Rossland. “The volunteers on Trails Day will be focusing on the Upper Red Head trail,” Saban said. “Our ultimate goal is another trail from the top of Red down. Red Top is very popular with hikers and cyclists and it gets a lot of foot traffic and riders coming down at high speed. Another downhill option would make it safer, less pressure on the one trail.” Tourism Rossland has recently produced a new map of the KCTS network showing the new extensions and trails in Rossland, Trail, and Montrose and the society is working on a new guide book that Saban says will be more focused on recom-

mended rides rather than just a map of the whole network. “We’re very pleased that local governments recognize the regional aspect of KCTS,” Saban said. “The funding from the RDKB is vital. It allows us to focus on one application rather than seven. That gives us more time to focus on the safety of the trails, agreements with landowners, dangerous trees, and invasive plant species. The RDKB funding allows us to do what we’re passionate about: providing an excellent recreational opportunity to the people of this area.” More information on the local trails network, volunteering, or becoming a member of KCTS can be found at

Unique gifts ideas for Mother’s Day Whether she’s still hard at work raising children or her kids have grown up and now have children of their own, Mom deserves our best efforts come Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day

* Concert tickets: Many adults recall the days of their youth when Mom would relax while listening to some of her favorite music on a lazy summer afternoon. Why not take a stroll down Memory Lane and take Mom to see one of her favorite acts in concert? Even if you have outgrown Mom’s musical tastes, she will still appreciate the chance to spend an evening out on the town with her kids and some good music.

* Theater tickets: If Mom is a fan of live theater then nothing will elicit a bigger smile than tickets to a Broadway show she has had her eyes on. If Broadway is a bit too far for you to travel, do your homework and find a traveling production of a former Broadway show. Such productions often feature many of the same actors who made the play famous on Broadway so you’re still bound to see an unforgettable show Mom will love. * Parts unknown: Moms who love to travel and experience other cultures would certainly appreciate a trip abroad or a domestic getaway to a region of the country they have yet to explore.Before booking any such trips, speak to your Mom and ask if there’s anywhere in particular she’d like to go. Such trips can be expensive, so adults might want to speak to their siblings and finance such an excursion together. * Spa treatment: If Mom is still as active as ever, then a day of pampering at a nearby spa is sure to please. Many luxury spas offer packages, especially around Mother’s Day, that make a full-on spa treatment a more affordable gift. Men and women can even accompany Mom on her trip and reap the rewards of being such a thoughtful son or daughter.

Rossland Youth Week JOSEFIN SVENBERG Rossland News

Art Show The Opening Night Gala of the Rossland Youth Art Show took place in the Rossland Art Gallery on Friday the 2nd of May. It was a bubbling evening with snacks by donation and a great turnout. The art will be in the gallery until the 11th for everyone to see. Hung in two different categories, grade 6-9 and grade 10-12 with a People’s Choice Award in both categories. Connor Dunham won the grade 6-9 award with his piece “Blood Moon” and Annicka Dixon-Reusz won the grade 10-12 award with her piece “Converse”. They both received $150. Runner Ups were, grade 6-9, “Bird” by Jonah Winckers, Grade 10-12, “Kootenay Goddess” by Jordie Yurychuk They received a youth week prize package consisting of 4 tickets to the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, 2 tickets to Red Talks, a YAN t-shirt and a YAN sticker. The Gathering consists of four wooden sculptures carved by Liam Barnes, Connor Britton, Jake Fantin, James Klemmensen, Devin Knox and Julian Zimmer. They came up with the concept of the sculptures and actualized the idea with help from the adults: Colin Taylor from 3 Tree who helped with concept, donated the wood and did wood prep. Mike Williams, master carver, mentored youth carving skills. Theshini Naicker, Rossland Council for Arts and Culure, helped with coordination and narrowing the design. Mike Kent, YAN Coordinator, recruited youth, helped with design and coordination. Liam Barnes was at the Opening Night Gala and was describing the idea about the concept. It is a part, a beginning, of a greater installation called Random Acts of Culture. The idea is to place art on random spots at random times in the area. The idea comes from Random Acts of Kindness but is here about art and culture to bring a greater awareness and appreciation to art.

A newcomer to Rossland is helping to clarify written and spoken language, one word at a time. Not through efforts in editing or promoting literacy, but by simplifying the legalese and mumbo jumbo of complex words that have permeated the Queen’s English. Kate Harrison Whiteside has made a career out of something called “plain language” - essentially producing “clear communication.” Her philosophy involves using a holistic approach, she says. Profiling the user to familiarize and find out what they need, and then tackling how to write, edit, design and deliver, whether it be a poster, document, printed materials, webpage, or media. “It’s quite exciting, and exciting that I can do that kind of work from Rossland,” she said. Since moving here, her local clients have included the Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, the City of Rossland, Selkirk College and clients in other provinces. One wouldn’t think that the English language needs any help. After all, nearly a billion people speak it (according to a 2012 report). It is the third language spoken globally by native speakers and when combined with native and non-native speakers, English is the most common language used in the world. But when it comes to writing or reading complicated documents, a lot of people are left scratching their heads. And the problem doesn’t just exist within the English language. This multidimensional aggregate of interaction that results in an overdose of confusing words is just as wide-spread in other languages as it is in English. Through the last few decades, use of complicated vernacular has spread like a virus. You’ll see it in legal or government documents, municipal records, schools and businesses. It rears its ugly head just about any place where a string of sentences could be replaced quite easily with just one.

But let’s back up the articulated vehicle. How did Harrison Whiteside come across “plain language” and end up in Rossland and how could she possibly find enough gibberish to improve? Harrison Whiteside started her career simply enough in Saskatchewan freelancing in communication services in 1986. “My background is in journalism, business and adult education,” she said. That year, she met a lawyer at a symposium and was contracted to simplify some documents for farmers. “(Texts) were so complicated, people had to hire lawyers in order to understand them. And there was a strong movement in the legal profession to simplify language.” For some time afterwards, she worked on federal correspondence, guidebooks, webpages and Excel spreadsheets. Her client list grew to include customers across Canada, the US and Europe. Teaming up with other like-minded individuals, Harrison Whiteside and colleague, Cheryl Stephens, came up with the idea of forming an association to promote and provide services in clear communication. That was in 1994. PLAIN (Plain Language Association International) has been going strong ever since. The two hosted a global audience at their first conference in Winnipeg in 1995. “When we first set up the organization, email had just come into existence and we dealt mostly with legal contacts around the world.” After that, Harrison Whiteside took a hiatus from PLAIN, between 1997 and 2010. She moved to England and worked as a web editor for a weekly that was started by Wordsworth. Then she and her British-born husband came back to Canada, settling first in Calgary. There, she did more plain language work and found that the organization she and Stephens created had grown extensively to include people from all over the globe. “It was fascinating to see how it evolved – different

fields: law, health, education, and how it has built over time and moved from document readability to usability – not just understanding but easier access – evolving into design and online communication.” PLAIN currently has several hundred members. Harrison Whiteside sits on the board of directors. The current president is from the U.S. and the incoming one is from Australia, she said. “In October 2013, Cheryl and I coordinated the 20th anniversary conference in Vancouver. Over 250 people from as far away as Sweden, Australia and Asia attended.” PLAIN is not the only organization striving for clear communication. I C Clear is another international consortium with many members of PLAIN. “Their object is to share knowledge and provide those interested in getting a good standard of education in plain language. The majority who work are freelancers or consultants.” I C Clear has developed a pilot course in plain language. So far, it has attracted 200 applicants from all over the world. “This will be an important part of PLAIN moving forward.” And I C Clear is partnering with another organization called Clarity to host

a three day conference in November 2014 in Antwerp and Brussels. Clarity is a worldwide group of lawyers and citizens who advocate for plain language in place of legalese. Harrison Whiteside settled in Rossland after her husband got a job with Teck. And although she’s only been in here a little over two years, she has jumped into community initiatives and is currently chairing the Rossland Sustainability Commission Innovative Education Task Force committee “We just launched the Monashee Institute designed to combine learning and outdoor adventures for edu-tourism, led by local entrepreneurs and educators.” She’s enjoys meeting other Rosslanders with quirky careers. “There’s an energy here,” she said. “You can feel it when you walk down the street. (Rosslander) Terry Miller calls us ‘nomadic entrepreneurs.’ I never dreamed I could have the same or better level of clients as in the (big) city. Lucky to have a mix of clients: old, new, national. Rossland is all about having a balanced life.” For more on PLAIN, see the website or contact Harrison Whiteside at A11

Talent abounds in Rossland

RSS Variety Show Lana Rodlie Rossland News

Britain may have talent; the U.S. may have talent, but Rossland DEFINITELY has talent. And that talent was showcased on Thursday night at the Rossland Summit School’s (RSS) Variety Show, sponsored by Youth Action Network and the Nearly Players. The auditorium filled with locals, anxious to see their progeny on stage; and no one was disappointed. Right from the percussions of the RSS Band (grades 5 to 9), led by Rita Cain, to the closing performance by Kootenay Dance Works, young people showed off

their myriad abilities in vocals, musical instruments, dance, gymnastics and video. India Normes was the first soloist on stage, whistling and playing her violin, providing a cute rendition of “Little Liza Jane.” Grace Markle and Michaela McLean followed with a duet of “Beautiful.” Separate ballet performances by Brynn Streadwick, Emilia Hofmann and duo Sally Turnbull and Charlotte McKay were exceptional. And the audience was treated to several other dance numbers by members of Kootenay Dance Works including a jazz piece called “Chocolat” and a comical animated

musical theatre performance called “Coffee Break.” Vocals by Delaney Bowman, Jaeden DeMelo, Madeline Grace-Wood, Brian Chan, Maggie Chan, and Tyra Delaire and Brad McKay were all really well done; as was the flawless rendition of Adele’s “Someone Like You” by Eillen Leduc and Timothy Chan on piano. A gymnastic feat that had people scratching their heads and wondering “how does she do that?” was accomplished by Sofia Olson. Anais Adams, Lisa Bruckmeier, Tatum Clement, Marguerite Helberg, Maya Maturo, Lauren Smith-

Anderson and Brynn Streadwick made up a delightful group of recorders. The music department’s Drum Minors, featuring Noah DeMelo, Evan Mudie and Nik Nelson made up a marching band with two numbers: “The British Grenadiers” and “Blood Upon the Risers.” Fiddler Gabe Mann played: “Reel de Issoudun” and “Swallowtail Jig.” And while music and dance took up most of the evening, the talents of a number of videographers was also displayed. Connor Dunham produced a cute video called “Life of Chair” mimicking a loner who eventually plunges himself off a balcony. Calem Scott and James Klem-

mensen each showed what could be done using special effects for fight scenes, and head cams for some dangerous downhill antics of snowboarding. Just after intermission, Liam Barnes, Kalais Rawsthorne, Travis Watson, Julian Zimmer and Justin Zimmer defied gravity by providing a parkour demonstration which is a unique form of tumbling. The guys are offering lessons in this fairly new training discipline on Mondays from 6 to 9 p.m. at the school. All RSS students displayed such confidence, even when (rarely) fluffing a line or missing a note, they smiled, giggled or otherwise carried on. The evening was

Un jardin pour la banque alimentaire de Slocan

Assemblée Générale Annuelle de l’Association des francophones des Kootenays Ouest (AFKO)

Par Stéphanie Boivin La banque alimentaire de Slocan, desservie par WE Graham Community Service Society (WEGCSS) a reçu une bourse pour bâtir un jardin au cœur du village de Slocan. La permaculture, ainsi que les pratiques biologiques seront à l'honneur dans l'espace alloué par le village pour ce nouveau projet. WE Graham, un organisme à but non lucratif, compte plusieurs cordes à son arc. Très impliqué socialement avec une garderie pour la petite enfance, un skate-parc pour les ados, des repas intergénérationnels pour l'âge d'or servis par les enfants, un centre pour les jeunes, etc. Leur mandat s'étend jusqu'à South Slocan. Le projet a pour objectif de produire 600 livres de fruits et légumes dès la première année. Des ateliers seront offerts gratuitement aux usagers de la banque alimentaire et à prix abordable pour tous ceux qui veulent apprendre différentes techniques de préservation alimentaire comme la déshydratation, le cannage et le stockage. Servant une cinquantaine de famille par mois, la banque alimentaire a subi une hausse de clientèle au cours de ces dernières années, sans compter les coupures budgétaires à une période où ils en ont le plus besoin. WE Graham a dû réduire ses services de banque alimentaire à seulement deux jeudis par mois au lieu du traditionnel rendezvous hebdomadaire. Les défis économiques de la Vallée ne sont un secret pour personne. La fermeture du moulin à bois de Slocan, le manque d'emploi et l'isolation font partie du quotidien pour de nombreux habitants de la Vallée. Le jardin a pour mission non seulement de nourrir ceux qui en ont besoin mais aussi de créer un lieu de rencontre, d'échange, d'apprentissage dans une

atmosphère de détente et de beauté. Les données des banques alimentaires du Canada sont alarmantes. Saviez-vous que 40% de nos enfants canadiens sont nourris par les banques alimentaires? Que près d’un million de Canadiens utilisent ces services chaque mois? Que nous avons désormais une nouvelle classe de citoyens les « travailleurs pauvres » (working poor). Ce qui veut dire que dans certains cas les deux parents travaillent mais n'arrivent pas à joindre les deux bouts, sans compter les familles monoparentales. Plusieurs commerces et entreprises supportent le projet, comme par exemple Gaia Green fournira les amendements biologiques. Four Seasons green house est impliqué dans le projet depuis le début. Des milliers de semences ont été données par plusieurs membres de différentes communautés ainsi que des fermiers des alentours. SIFCO a généreusement contribué avec des poteaux de cèdre pour la clôture. Un charpentier local a bâti 12 parterres surélevés avec l'aide d'un bénévole. Le projet stimule une micro-économie locale, créant aussi 2 emplois à temps partiel. WE Graham tient à remercier tous ceux et celles qui ont généreusement répondu à l'appel et qui n'ont pu être mentionnés ci-haut faute d'espace. Merci! Il n'est quand même pas trop tard contribuer. Les dons monétaires, matériels, de bénévolat et de mentorat sont chaleureusement acceptés. Pour tous renseignements et dons, veuillez contactez: Holly M. Jack MA Leadership, WE Graham Community Service Society 250-355-2484, Un gros merci!

Come into a world of simple truths, good times, and poor impulse control. A world where “party” is spelled with a “d”, where the smoke is always thick and the riffs are always heavy. Come into the world of Randy. As an “altered ego” of Nelson based writer/

performer Lucas Myers, Randy has been seen offering advice in various Pilotcopilot Productions including DRESS, East, and HELLO BABY. Now he is going to be sharing some of his redneck truisms in RANDY: Tellin it Like it Iz, an entire evening dedicated to the Randster. Topics will range from “What Is a Redneck?” to “Why Hockey Still Matters (a Parable)” to “How to Actually Have Sex in a Canoe, Fer Real” as well as his recent conversion to becoming a dedicated “Environmentalistic”. Featuring original music and Myers’ unique brand of observational humour, this is a live comedy event not to be missed!

Their mandate has also expanded to include medication/feeding supplies and even a fun day out to boost morale. Their motto is, “Kids living better with Cancer”. Gray is also raising funds to be donated with her hair, her goal is $1000. She has been pounding the pavement in Rossland and is so grateful for the generosity of businesses and individuals thus far. So, if you see her making the rounds, gathering donations to send in with her tresses, give her a high five or the change from your pocket. Your change will make change in a young person’s life.
