Mt. Begbie Brewery finds new location for expansion Alex Cooper

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Mount Begbie Brewery is eyeing a location in Johnson Heights for the location of its proposed expanded operation. An application was set to go to city council on Tuesday, Dec. 23 – after press time – to re-zone a property on Oak Drive in Johnson Heights to allow for the construction of an expanded production facility. "We haven't finalized our plans

yet," said Tracy Larson, who runs the brewery with her husband Bart. "We're looking at between 12,000 and 15,000 square feet." This is the second proposed location to go the City of Revelstoke; a plan to build an expanded brewery next to the Railway Museum fell through after it was determined problems with the property would make construction costs prohibitive. That now has the brewery proposing a re-zoning of the property at 2155 Oak Drive, below the Hill-

crest Hotel. "It's unfortunate, the move out of downtown. We're very sad and not wanting to do it but our alternatives were few and far between," said Larson. "We didn't have any other land opportunities that were suitable for us, that were affordable, suitable for building on, large enough, readily available, etcetera." Mount Begbie Brewery has begun the process by seeking a rezoning to allow for a micro-brewery with a 15,000 hectolitre per year capacity to built on the prop-

erty, which is currently zoned highway commercial. Mount Begbie Brewery has just about reached its capacity for about 6,000 hectolitres per year at its current location, said Larson. They are also looking to expand their brewery tour offerings, which are currently offered only twice a week so they don't interfere with production. "That's a part of our business we'd like to expand and we can't do so in this area," said Larson. The proposed location stretches

from Oak Drive almost to Townley Street. The brewery would be located at the southern end of the property and most of the site would remain unused. Larson said they hope to begin construction in the fall of 2015. “It’s going to be a busy year for us,” she said. “The move will be very interesting.” Visit the Times Review website for an update on this story with reaction from the Dec. 23 meeting of council.

Work proceeding on Revelstoke 6 Logging open house BC Hydro’s Integrated Resource Plan has target date of 2029 for the installation of a sixth turbine at the Revelstoke Dam, but it could go into service as soon as 2020. ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Planning continues on a sixth turbine for the Revelstoke Dam, even following last week’s announcement by the B.C. government of the construction of the Site C dam. “In our base plan, Revelstoke 6 would be out in the 2029-2030 time frame,” said Randy Reimann, the director of resource planning for BC Hydro, in an interview with the Times Review last week. “If our expected case isn’t the way world unfolds, it could be needed as early as 2020. We’re working on having it available somewhere in that time frame.” The Revelstoke Dam was completed in 1984 with space for six turbines but only four were installed at the time. A fifth turbine went into service in 2010. Meanwhile, two more turbines are being installed at Mica Dam, with an expected in-service date of 2015. That leaves Revelstoke 6 as the last turbine that can be readily installed in the major Columbia River hydro dams. The project was identified as being necessary in BC Hydro’s Integrated Resource Plan, which was accepted by the government in November 2013.

Last week’s Site C decision doesn’t change that, said Reimann. “What the plan actually said is with Site C and possibly some gas fired capacity on the north coast to support (liquid natural gas) and the load in the north coast region, we would have enough capacity to take us through to the late 2020s,” he said. The plan is contingent on a number of factors, including LNG development and conservation measures. Reimann called it “an aspirational target.” “There’s a number of reasons why our base resource plan may not be sufficient and to deal with those situations we identified two types of resources we wanted to move along and keep them ready for their earliest in-service date depending on how the future unfolds,” he said. “Those two resources are gas-fired generation or Revelstoke 6. Revelstoke 6 is really our main resource we want to look at for contingency purposes.” The Revelstoke 6 project is currently in the environmental assessment phase. BC Hydro is working on an application for an environmental certificate — a project timeline says it hopes to have it place in 2017. A core committee consisting of local government, First Nations and other stakeholders has been assem-

bled to help guide the project, though it hasn’t met in several months. “They’re looking at the project, helping us identity the effects of the project and recommending mitigation measures to address those affects and look at the operation of the sixth unit at Revelstoke Dam,” said Jen WalkerLarsen, a spokesperson for BC Hydro. Jody Lownds, who is representing the North Columbia Environmental Society on the committee said the NCES’ goal is to make sure the cumulative impacts are being looked at. They were told only the incremental changes of adding a sixth turbine could be studied, “which makes it difficult to try and address some of the more extreme environmental impacts from the dam itself,” she said. “One thing we keep hoping will be a possibility is for less daily fluctuation in the water level because that creates erosion issues,” Lownds added. Walker-Larsen said the committee would likely be reconvened in the spring. According to BC Hydro, Revelstoke 6 is expected to cost $420 million to install and would increase generation capacity by 500 megwatts. The Dam currently generates 2,480 MW when at full power. “The additional capacity being built into the dam – we don’t have any more water – what it allows us to do is use the water at times we most need the electricity,” said Reimann. “It’s really being used to meet our peak demand.”

Local forest licensees will be hosting a forestry open house in the New Year. The open house is set for Tuesday, Jan. 13, from 6–9 p.m. at the community centre. The purpose is to provide information the local forest industry, upcoming logging operations, as well as seek feedback from the public. The open house is being held at the request of the Revelstoke Cycling Association and the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club in response to proposed harvesting in several recreation areas around Revelstoke, including Mount Macpherson, Boulder Mountain and Frisby Ridge. B.C. Timber Sales and Stella Jones will be taking part; BCTS manages the upper Macpherson area, while Stella Jones logs on lower Macpherson, Boulder Mountain and Frisby Ridge. The Times Review reported in September that in 2016, B.C. Timber Sales intends on harvesting a large cut block on Mount Macpherson that would impact several mountain biking and Nordic skiing trails. The news resulted in several letters to the editor opposing the decision. The RCA recently decided not to actively oppose the harvesting on Macpherson because the current land use makes it easier to obtain permission to build trails. Instead, it opted to work with license holders to minimize the impact on trails. “The RCA Board feels it is in the best interest of all members, licensee holders and recreational users and encourages users to work together to develop longer term strategies for future land use planning,” the RCA board wrote in a notice posted to its website. The news of the open house was accompanied by a lengthy article explaining how timber harvesting works in B.C. It was written by Pat McMechan, a professional forester with Stella Jones, and can be read by looking for this article on the Times Review website.

RCMP briefs: Snowmobiles stolen, businesses vandalized ALEX COOPER

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Thieves made off with two snowmobiles from a Revelstokearea business early Friday morning, RCMP say. According to a news release, RCMP were informed of the thefts from a business west of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway on Dec. 19 at around 2:15 a.m.. The stolen snowmobiles were both 2012 Arctic Cat M1100 Turbos, one black and one white. Both

had green and black sled covers. They were in an 8’ X 10’ aluminum open trailer that was registered in Alberta. The sleds and trailer have an estimated value of more than $50,000. “The Revelstoke RCMP recommend the use of preventative measures in protecting these very expensive recreational items,” wrote Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release. “Such items as pad locks and chains for sleds, tracking devices, hitch coupler locks, and disabling trucks overnight can deter

thefts. In addition, through registering sleds and having that information as well as photos of the stolen items can assist in broadcasting the information through all policing communities.” A week earlier, the RCMP unveiled a bait sled program that will be in place throughout the B.C. Interior this winter. Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to contact the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES VANDALIZED Thousands of dollars in damage was caused to several downtown businesses after they were struck by graffiti early Thursday morning. Revelstoke RCMP say the businesses on the 100 blocks of Second Street East and West were vandalized in the early morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 18. “All three had extensive paint, pen or glass etching damage on the glass windows,” said Staff-Sgt.

Kurt Grabinsky in a news release. “The material used is acidic, resulting in the need to replace the glass at each location in order to remove the writing.” The suspect tagged the words “raw dog” on the windows, resulting in more than $5,000 in damage. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

We often hear stories about the good and bad effects of consuming coffee. One idea that hasn’t been scientifically proven but looks retrospectively at large groups of people worldwide shows there is a link between drinking coffee and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. It doesn’t seem to matter if the coffee is decaf or not but it is recommended that the coffee be drunk with little or no sugar and milk.

E-cigarettes are not legal in Canada but in countries where they are, there has been a significant increase in the number of youth who have never smoked start to use this new device.

Busy slate for council before Christmas Alex Cooper

A staff report provided councillors with five options for receiving training in municipal government leadership. At its last meeting, council asked staff for options after balking at the $11,000 price tag for attending the Local Government Leadership Academy (LGLA) in Kelowna in January.

Separate vacation rental applications for properties on Birch Drive and First Street West were set for third reading. Public hearings on the two applications were held on Tuesday, Dec. 9. There was minimal opposition to the 1585 Birch Drive application, but the one for 1000 First Street West received more opposition, with neighbours expressing concern about parking, snow removal and the way the property is run now.

Ginger Shoji hosting her last Community Christmas Dinner Melissa Jameson

Special to the Times Review

It began as a way for people who were alone on Christmas to have a place to have a meal and enjoy a bit of company. “I know what it's like to be alone at Christmas,” said Ginger Shoji, of the annual Community Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day. “When I first moved to Vancouver I hadn't met my husband yet. All of my friends were going home for Christmas and I didn't have enough money to go back to Ontario to see my family.” When Shoji started the dinner 20 years ago, it was for Revelstoke residents who were alone over the holiday. That hasn’t changed over the years, although occasionally Shoji says people who are stranded on the highway, or who may be here just for the season will stop by. However, she is quick to point out that these people usually leave a donation on the table. The first year the event took place in the United Church Basement and had 26 people attend. Last year, a total of 300 meals were cooked (some of those were delivered to people who were not mobile enough to make it to the actual dinner). After 20 years, however, Shoji is stepping away from organizing the dinner. It's not the first time she's said she's calling it quits, so she has family members coming all the way from Germany just to make sure. “I started when I was 45 and this is our 20th year. I've been saying I'm going to let it go for years, but nobody is stepping up to the plate,” said Shoji, who even offered to have someone interested in organizing the event shadow her this year. No one responded to her offer. “Next year will be difficult if no one does it. I know the people who come really look forward to it. It's a happy place and people are glad to be there,” she said. Shoji did get a bit of a break for two years when other organizers stepped forward – one year Melanie Melnyk took the reigns and another year Bernie Brown helped make the annual event happen – but other than that she's been at the helm, so to speak, since the beginning. Despite the efforts that go along with organizing, Shoji is quick to point out that it is the volunteers who actually do all the work. This year, Emo's is donating 100 pounds of potatoes, each of the new council members are donating turkeys, Pathfinders has taken the time to decorate the Frontier Restaurant where the dinner is being held, and Team Gloria is making sure Santa Claus will make a special appearance. That's not mentioning the volunteers

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service Revelstoke United Church December 24th , 8:00 p.m. 314 Mackenzie Avenue.

who cook the meals, provide transportation to people who want to come to the dinner, and take meals to people whose mobility issues prevent them from actually attending. “Anybody can do it (the organizing). I've done it for 20 years and I'm always worried about having enough volunteers, or having too much food and not enough people, but it all works out,” said Shoji. “Everything always falls into place and Matt (Singh) and his family are incredibly kind-hearted and generous people.” Without the use of the Ol' Frontier Restaurant, Shoji says it would be incredibly difficult as it would mean needing to set up tables and chairs, as well as taking them down afterwards. Still, she admits it will be hard to give up the organizing. “It's not an easy thing, but I've gotten to the point where I'm slowing down. My energy level isn't what it used to be. I think I'm at that point where I have to let go. Someone can step in,” she said. “I feel if I close this door I open the door for someone who has the excitement and energy and vision of how they could improve things.” This year's Community Christmas Dinner takes place Thursday, December 25, at the Frontier Restaurant from 1–3 p.m. If you need a ride or would like to volunteer, call Ginger at 250-837-4101 or 250-837-4129.

Grizzlies go into holidays with consecutive wins

COME VISIT THE NEW OWNERS

KATHLEEN & BRAD at your local

Cassandra federico Special to the Times Review

The Revelstoke Grizzlies bounced back from their five game losing streak this past weekend with back-to-back wins over the 100 Mile House Wranglers. Coach Ryan Parent was pleased to pick up a couple wins, and felt that it was due to the team's offensive push this weekend. "We generated simple offense, and it definitely translated," he said. Friday's game was played at the forum. The Grizzlies played strong, beating the Wranglers 6-2. 100 Mile house were first to get on the board at 5:14 in the first period, with a goal from Brett Harris. Revelstoke fired back, and evened the score at 1:06, with a goal from Ethan Waitzner, assisted by Carter Huber, and Kenny Batke. Jayden Syrota restored the Wrangler`s one goal lead early in the second but Revelstoke would dominate the rest of the game, with five consecutive power play goals. Steven Fiust tied the game at 1:07 in the second, with help from Nii Noi tetteh, and Kenny Batke. With only 26 seconds left, Fiust gave the Grizzlies a one goal lead going into the third period, after the Wranglers took a five minute major penalty. Revelstoke`s domination continued in the third period. Griffin Fried gave his team a two goal lead at 18:35, with help from Josh Pilon. Fiust completed his hat track less than 20 seconds later, with assists from Tyler Chavez Leech, and Zach Paxman. Chavez Leech then cemented the win for his team with a goal at 2:11, making the final score 6-2. Parent was very content with the team`s play on Friday night. "Our game was disciplined tonight, and we threw more rubber at the net then we have in the past, which payed off for us," he said. The following night, Revelstoke travelled to 100 Mile House to face off against the Wranglers once more before the holidays. Although the Grizzlies were trailing most of the game they pulled off a great comeback, and won 4-3 in overtime. Micky Turner opened the scoring for the Wranglers on a power play at 14:19 in the first. 100 Mile capitalized on another power play early in the second. Brendan Lane then gave his team a three goal lead over Revelstoke, going into the third period. The Grizzlies were a force to be reckoned with in the third. Fiust was first to put Revelstoke on the board at 15:10, with help from Pilon, and Tetteh. Huber added a second for the Grizzlies at 8:04 on a power play. Just as the game was approaching the

end, Paxman tied it up with a goal with 93 seconds left, assisted by Chavez Leech and Fiust. The winner would now have to be determined in overtime. Both teams went into overtime determined to take the extra point, but Huber was the hero for the Grizzlies with a goal less than a minute into four-on-four overtime. Assists went to Chavez Leech and Tetteh. Despite the wins, the Grizzlies remain in fifth place in the Doug Birks division, five points behind 100 Mile House for a playoff spot. Parent is hoping the Grizzlies will come back strong in the new year, and continue to creep up the division's standings, then secure their spot in the playoffs. "We are in a play off push right now, and securing that spot is our objective," he said.

"We are definitely in the hunt, but if one team has a good weekend they're right in there." Parent went on to share the messages he gave the players going into the holidays. "I want to see them continue to work hard, like they have been. I think that’s going to be the bottom line as we move forward," he said. With 13 home games, and only five on the road left in the regular season, the Grizzlies will continue their playoff run mostly in front of their hometown crowd. The Grizzlies return to action on Friday, Jan. 2, when they head to Fruitvale to face the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. On Saturday, Jan. 3, they take on the Nelson Leafs. Their first home game of 2015 is on Tuesday, January, 6 against the Kelowna Chiefs.

RMR hosting high school skiing championships

Columbia Shuswap Regional District

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Holiday Office Hours the CSRD Office in Salmon Arm will be closed from THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2014 until 9 am on MONDAY, JANUARY 5, 2015

Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be playing host to the B.C. high school skiing and snowboarding championships this March. Nakusp Secondary School and Salmon Arm Secondary School are serving as joint hosts of the annual championships, which are being held at RMR for the first time from March 2–4.

Visit our website at www.csrd.bc.ca 781 Marine Park Dr. NE Salmon Arm • PO Box 978 V1E 4P1 250-832-8194 Toll Free 1-888-248-2773

Dan Sculnick, who is organizing the event for RMR, said the Revelstoke Ski Club will be helping out with marshalling the races. The championships includes giant slalom, slalom and a skier/snowboard cross race. Before anyone gets too excited about the prospect of a snow-cross course being built at RMR, Sculnick described it as more of a giant slalom course with berms and jumps than a full-on snow-cross course. And

instead of four racers going down at once, riders will hit the course one at a time. Anywhere from 200-400 racers are expected to attend the championships. Each school is allowed to send 24 racers — six male skiers, six female skiers, six male snowboarders and six female snowboarders. Revelstoke Secondary School will be assembling a team to take part, said Kathy Hoshizaki, the school's director of athletics.

Citizen of the Year Bev Wiege (left) receives the award for Citizen of the Year from past winner Vivian Mitchell at the weekly Rotary Club lunch last week. “Pretty weird,” she said when asked how she feels about the honour. “I, as a volunteer, do what I want to do because I want to, and I think most volunteers do that to. It’s an honour and that’s wonderful.” What does Wiege do? She volunteers with the Order of the Eastern Star, United Church, Thrift Store, Meals on Wheels, and does a lot of work with seniors. Terry Crane, who ran the selection committee for the Revelstoke Rotary Club, said Wiege received the most nominations out of anyone. Words by Alex Cooper, photo by Mavis Cann

Obituaries

Obituaries Alfred Herbert Kaatz Mr. Alfred Herbert Kaatz passed away at his residence in Revelstoke on Wednesday, December 10th at the age of 89 years. There will be no formal funeral service by Al’s own request.

Al was born in Beausejour, Manitoba on January 16, 1925. Al joined the Canadian Army at the tender age of 17 years in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was posted to London, Ontario for three months until he became of age and able to fulfill his wishes of getting into the scrap and see some of the world. Al spent 30 years in the Canadian Army having served in WW2, the Korean conflict, UN Peacekeeping and four years (1965-1969) in Germany. He retired from the Army in 1972 in the rank of Master Warrant Officer. In his spare time, Al loved to play pool and cribbage and loved the time spent with his family. Al is survived by his wife of 63 years; Marion, two children: Holly (Calvin) Kermack and Ernest Kaatz (Sharon Gostola) all of Revelstoke; grandson, Dawson Lindsay and great granddaughter Adrianna Lindsay. Al will also be deeply missed by the soldiers he served in the Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) and many others from the Armoured Corps in Canada. Al and Marion lived in several communities in B.C. after retirement, the most recent in Revelstoke where their children reside.

Connie, fondly known as “Bunny� by many, was born Constance Elizabeth Carolan on October 17, 1915 in Consort Alberta. After completing her nurses training in 1939 she nursed in Williams Lake and Vernon from 1939 to 1945. It was at this time that she bonded with and became lifetime friends with three other nurses. The four women kept in touch with each other regularly through the years right up to Connie’s passing. When the war ended Connie returned to her home town to reconnect with her family. The war years had been hard on the Carolan family. Connie lost three brothers. While Connie was back home she reunited with an old friend, Lloyd Lang. They eventually married and settled down in Cloverdale BC where they bought a plot of land and began a dairy farm business. These were busy years for the family feeding and boarding many farm hands and managing the cattle. Dairy farming was a good life where everyone helped out and the girls belonged to the 4H club. When Connie found the time she loved to read and could be found curled up with a book into late hours of the night even though she knew the cows had to be milked at dawn. Connie kept a close relationship with her only sister Mary, who lived in Alberta with her husband Cliff and their eight children. They talked often and saw each other whenever they could. Connie was also close to her older brother Tom who lived on Galiano Island. This led to Lloyd and Connie buying a small cabin on the island where they enjoyed many years of island life with their growing family. Connie and Lloyd loved to travel. Some of the places they were fortunate enough to visit were Hawaii, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, Spain and Africa. As they got older and Lloyd’s health deteriorated they stopped travelling but decided to spend six months a year in Arizona. This allowed them to spend time with one of their daughters and her family who had moved there in 1979. We all remember some wonderful trips down there to spend time with mom and dad in the warm climate. While in Arizona, mom enjoyed her 10 pin bowling, the pool, long walks and you would often see her peddling around on her 3-wheeler bike, grandchildren in tow. She continued to love her books. Even in her later years when macular degeneration took most of her eyesight she continued to enjoy audio books. Following Lloyd’s death in 1998 Connie chose Revelstoke as her home where her youngest son Ross and his family lived. She found a place at Mt Begbie Manor where she lived for the past 16 years. She made many close friends there. You could always count on Connie for morning coffee in the common room and a good gab session. She also enjoyed her Monday bingo at the Seniors Centre, her Wednesday bus trips downtown with Emily for their hair appointments which often ended up at the Grizzly pub for wings and a brew. Connie could be found walking the halls at the manor with Carol and sister, (to keep in shape, she would say). The years at the manor saw many visits from family and friends including two large family reunions with her sister Mary’s family. These were known as the Lang/Long reunions as one sister married a Lang and the other a Long. These were such fun and memorable times. These are but a few of the highlights of a life well lived. There are many more stories and we hope that they will continue to be shared amongst family and friends in the years ahead. Constance was predeceased by her husband Lloyd in 1998, three brothers during the war years, John, Bob and Gratton Carolan, her brother Tom in 1982 and her dear sister Mary who passed away in 2007 at the age of 95. She is survived by her six children: Colin (Margaret) Krueger of Port Colborne Ontario, Nora Kraft of Coquitlam, Jacquie (Jack) Dueck of San Diego, Betty (Dave) Japp of Kamloops, Gordon (Bev) Lang of Vegreville and Ross (Phyllis) Lang of Revelstoke; close family friends Hans (Doreen) Funk of Langley and Harry (Sharon) Tracz of Kamloops; 16 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren and many good friends. Life at the manor won’t quite be the same. A celebration of life will be held at the family plot at Valley View Memorial Gardens in Surrey, in the spring of 2015, where she will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband, Lloyd. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Audrey Austin and the homecare nursing staff for such wonderful care of mom in the past year. Mom prided herself in her independence and this allowed her to stay in her little apartment where she was comfortable and familiar with her surroundings. Special thanks to Dr. Rennie, the nursing staff at QVH (especially Shannon on the second floor and Gina in emergency) for going beyond their duties to make sure Connie was comfortable that her family was welcomed and encouraged to stay with her until the end.
