Donald Pharand is upset about the termination and rehiring of CAO Doug Allin. Craig Lindsay photo

A recent CBC story is garnering a lot of attention in Grand Forks. The story features an interview with a local resident who is questioning the decision of the City to rehire Doug Allin as CAO, after paying out his severance package. Donald Pharand said he was stunned when he heard about Allin’s rehiring and he filed a Freedom of Information request to find out exactly what happened. “I’m upset that the city is spending all this money—the $192,000 payout at the end of the year and then the rehiring,” said Pharand. “That the city hired him back, it’s like: what’s going on here?” Pharand said that the story has not been covered much by the media but now that the information is coming out in a press release after an FOI request, he’s left wondering. “It answered some of the questions that people wondered,” he said about the release. “Now it’s coming out. It’s like the optics aren’t very good.” Allin had been CAO for almost two years when he and the previous council agreed

that he would leave the organization. According to the Dec. 31, 2013 Statement of Financial Information (SOFI) report, Allin made $142,995.04 in 2013. The severance agreement between the city and Allin stated that he would be compensated for one year of salary and benefits for a total of $191,321.10. The actual payout to Allin was $115,577.30. The contract further outlined that Allin would act as a consultant to the city for a period of six months through Urban Systems. He would also retain use of a laptop and cell phone, which he continues to use. Allin’s current contract with the city is for three years at $133,000 in annual wages. The contract includes five weeks of vacation and a contribution from Allin of 400 hours of overtime to offset the severance package. Pharand said there must have been a problem with Allin for council to relieve him. “We don’t know what the problem was but there definitely some serious problem and then they bring him back,” said Pharand. “I don’t buy that he’s the best qualified and that he’s the only one who • See REHIRING CITY CAO page A7

Fire destroys house

Fire crews responded quickly to a house fire on Como Street in the South Ruckle area in Grand Forks early Tuesday morning. “We got called about 4:15 a.m. Tuesday morning,” said Fire Chief Dale Heriot. “When we arrived we fought that the structure was fully involved with fire. We evacuated the residents on either side of the structure.” Heriot said there were three fire engines on scene and 27 firefighters on hand. “We had to do a defensive fire attack because the structure was too involved to go into the interior,” he said. “Our first job was to protect the exposures, which were the two houses on either side. Other than some minor damage, we did okay at that.” Heriot said there was no one in the house as the resident was outside at the time of the fire. There were no injuries reported. Heriot added that the fire is still under investigation at this time. “The fire is still under investigation and it’s undetermined what the cause of the fire was,” he said. Heriot said crews took about 45 minutes to knock the fire down and then went into mop-up mode, which took another few hours. “Much of the house was a total loss,” he said. “The roof an everything collapsed so there was a lot of smoldering rubble. That fire took quite a while.” A neighbour, Bujor Tanasescu, praised the quick work of the fire department in stopping the blaze and keeping it from spreading to nearby houses. “Our firefighters are my heroes,” he said.

Grants to assist with invasive plant programs CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

A couple of local organizations will be benefitting from grants from the provincial government to help control the spread of invasive plants. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) received a grant for $41,500, while Boundary Invasive Species Society (BISS) received $32,800. The grants were two of 29, totaling $1,702,000, distributed province-wide to local governments, regional invasive species committees and the Invasive Species Council of BC to assist with the activities and support the objectives of the provincial Invasive Plant Program. “Containing and preventing the spread of invasive species is important to protecting our natural environment,” said Linda Larson, Boundary-Similkameen MLA. “This funding recognizes all the hard work done by the society and will help them over forward with their work on invasive plants.” Invasive plants are species that have been introduced into British Columbia from other areas. They displace native vegetation and can cause considerable economic and environmental damage. Some pose a health risk to people (e.g. skin irritation). Invasive plants can disrupt natural ecosystems, reduce biodiversity, increase soil erosion, alter soil chemistry and adversely affect commercial crops. The Invasive Plant Program identifies sites where invasive plant species have been found and responds rapidly to contain and eradicate them before they become established and start spreading. Barb Stewart, coordinator of Boundary Invasive Species Society (BISS), said the grant will be used for general coordination activities as well as on-ground treatment on Crown land. Stewart said BISS will work together with the RDKB on the program, which covers property in areas C (Christina Lake), D (Rural Grand Forks) and E (West Boundary). “There are priority species of concern,” she said. “One of those being targeted is common bugloss. Most of those are out in the West Boundary on Crown land. That is a plant being spread, we believe, to some degree, by logging.” Stewart said most of the work will done by herbicide treatment along with some manual pulling.

For the record

In the April 15 Gazette on page A3 in the How They Voted section, the amount of money spent on the City Hall completion project should have been $10,000. In that same issue, the donation from the Elks Club to the Rotary Club Spray Park should have been $2,500. There were also errors in a story about Boundary Music and Theatre’s production of Chicago, which took place this weekend (see

page A16 for review). Rivers’ Edge Theatre Society is actually in prbn e-production of Canadian playwright Caroline Smith’s hilarious The Kitchen Witches. The Kitchen Witches will be performed as dinner theatre at Christina Living Arts Centre May 26, 28 & 30, at the GEM Theatre in Grand Forks June 4, 5, & 6, and in Greenwood at the MacArthur Centre June 13 and 14. The Gazette apologizes for the errors.

Arts Week a big deal

The great thing about living in a small town is that heavy crime and criminal elements are often less than in larger centres. That’s not to say we don’t have any crime but for a small town paper like us hard news is sometimes hard to come by. The great thing is that usually means the paper (and the town) are more full up with arts, culture, sports and community happenings. The week’s Gazette just shows how strong the arts community is in town. We’ve got pictures and a review of the recent play Chicago, performed by the Boundary Music and Theatre Society, which was well attended and enjoyed by all. Rivers’ Edge Theatre Society has their own production coming up in May and June with The Kitchen Witches. The show will be performed as dinner theatre, which is always a lot of fun. We’ve got a review of a new autobiography about Allen Piche, AKA the “BearDude.” He was busted in Christina Lake with an alleged grow-op allegedly guarded by several black bears.

West Boundary home to fibre arts, theatrical arts by the brushes of Kettle River Arts Club. One thing for sure though —you really wouldn’t want any LSD in your Kool-Aid when you go to a quilt show. Talk about sensory overload! *** Beginning tonight and running for four performances through Saturday evening is Nana’s Naughty Knickers, a production being performed by Midway and Beyond Little Theatre. This new company has much to offer the local theatre audiences. They are under the direction of John Hibberson and the actors are budding stars from the local communities. There are three evening performances—the Friday one has the option of a spaghetti dinner being served by the Grade 6/7 class as a field trip fundraiser. There is also a single matinee performance on Saturday afternoon. Much like creating a quilt, it takes time to stage a play such as this, so we only get

treated to a performance three or maybe four times a year. So don’t be disappointed. Tickets are $10 per person at The Spot in Midway. Phone for reservations and info 250449-2345. This is another event where you would probably want to order your Kool-Aid straight up. However, there will be a cash bar at all showings for those who wish to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer to go along with their evening out on the town. *** Special K isn’t about these days to listen to me whine and snivel about the little things that irk a person so you, dear reader, get to take on the task. What has got my goat this week is the recording my cell phone gives me whenever I place a long distance call. How does this sound for ridiculously redundant: “Please stay on the line while your call is completed.” Did they think I was going to hang up on myself?

*** You may not believe this, but my cat needed a new battery the other day. I have a fancy pet door that opens only when the animal that is trying to come in has a strong magnet attached to their collar. This trips a circuit that unlocks the flapper. I have the thing set up so that you don’t need a magnet to go out though—only coming in. That’s a good idea because if something ever went haywire and an unwanted animal did get into through the pet door, you sure wouldn’t want to lock them in. So there you have it—that offer of cats that I had in my column last week has been sweetened a bit. I can now advertise them as having fresh batteries recently installed. Seriously though, I am still looking for foster home(s) for my four cats for the month of May while I get settled in Oregon. Inquire at reporter@

to the editor

Time for better stewardship

Editor, The Gazette: Canadians are learning of the alarming consequences from the Conservative government’s lack of regard for our rivers, lakes and oceans. The new Navigation Protection Act passed under Harper, and removes most of our area lakes and rivers from protection (for example, according to Government of Canada website, Skaha, Slocan, Christina, Vaseaux and Osoyoos lakes are no longer protected under the new act). Our oceans did make the short list for protection in the new act. How ironic then, that despite protected designation the Pacific was left vulnerable to the 2,700 litres of bunker fuel that leaked into English Bay recently. In 2013 the Kitsilano Coast Guard station, which could have responded to the spill within six minutes, was closed. Instead, it took six hours to begin the clean-up process. The Vancouver fuel spill is a wake up call

for Canadians. What if the accident involved a tanker, carrying 600,000 barrels of crude oil? It was only months ago that the disabled Russian cargo ship Sumishir was adrift off the B.C. coast near Haida Gwaii. Disaster was narrowly averted, when after 20 hours a U.S. tug reached the Sumishir and towed her safely to port. The conservative claim that 80 per cent of the spill has been cleaned up doesn’t add up for Frederick E. Moxey. The 35-year coast guard verteran and former commander of the closed Kitsilano Coast Guard station says it would be unusual to recover more than 30 per cent of a spill. I am convinced that Canadians want and deserve better. It is time for better stewardship of our land and water, and time for transparency and honesty. Connie Denesiuk South Okanagan-West Kootenay Federal Liberal Candidate

Editor, The Gazette: Here was a woman who was not fooled. She was the first to make it at the site of the cave on Sunday morning only to find that Jesus was not there. She looked around and saw someone to whom she asked. He replied: “Mary.” She immediately fell on her knees saying, “Raboni,” trying to clutch his feet (Women in those days did not see themselves too equal). And we know the following. However, the point being made here is that the love she had was real—so much so that Mary, who resembles Jesus in more ways the one (both about the same age, both targeted for different reasons, and both hugely able to demonstrate true love, and both having big responsi-

bilities as leaders), were sent on missions etc. The undersigned has a book called the Liturgy of the Hours, used by contemplatives. On one page, the Nazarene is described as the doctor of souls and bodies. this has to be claimed by believers, as well as Christians’ responsibilities to live and pass on what they know to be the truth. Mary of Magdalene might have been there at the Last Supper too. How did she behave afterwards? How am I behaving? If sometimes I come across some who demonstrate irrational anger, why is it? Provocation of all sorts, prejudice, hatred are the stuff to get rid of at Easter, because He is risen. Belatedly, Happy Easter. Julia O’Sullivan, Grand Forks

Predicting the future is impossible What if the Kettle River Review Committee and the author of the report had begun their work by asking different questions? Would their conclusion have been the same? What if the committee had taken the advice of Wendell Berry, a Kentucky farmer who says the only Rousing questions we have a right to ask are, the Rabble “What’s the right thing to do? What does this earth require of us if we ROY RONAGHAN want to continue to live on it?” Berry is well known as a writer of novels, short stories, essays and poems. The Unsettling of America is one of his best known books where he argues that good farming is a cultural development and a spiritual discipline and that agribusiness takes farming out of its cultural context and away from families. The result is that people are more estranged from the land they live upon, have little knowledge of how to take care of it, and whether it is healthy or in need of some form of treatment. Berry and his wife have lived on a 50-acre farm in Kentucky that he purchased 50 years ago and during his five decades on the farm, he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge that he willingly shares through speaking engagements and his written works The Berrys are committed to living a simple, agrarian lifestyle and anyone who is searching for a model of how to live in harmony with the land, might emulate them. Passing on their knowledge is a thrill for the couple. In response to a recent request from Yes! magazine that he write a narrative for the future he responded with a two-part essay with the title, Revolution Starts Small and Close to Home. Berry’s reply to the request was: “So far as I am concerned the future has no narrative. The future does not exist until it has become the past. To a very limited extent, prediction has worked. The sun, so far has set and risen as we have expected it to do. And the world, I suppose, will predictably end, but all of its predicted deadlines, so far, have been wrong.” Berry also stated, “Only the present good is good. It is the presence of good—good work, good thoughts, good acts, good places—by which we know that the present does not have to be a nightmare of the future.” He also stated, “I believe, because all we can do to prepare rightly for tomorrow is to do the right thing today.” If we take Berry’s advice, what are the right things we should be doing? He tells us that we should forget about planning for the future and begin backing away from doing so and into the present. We should remember our history and the history of where we live because both will have an influence on how we go about our lives in the present. We should be concerned about land abuse both where we live, near where we live, and around the world. We should back out of the environment and let it take care of itself. The Kettle River Watershed Management Plan that has been five years in the making is a future-oriented document prepared under the auspices of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB). It was developed to fulfill the vision of the watershed planning committee as “a healthy, resilient and sustainable Kettle River Watershed, which functions to meet the needs and values of its communities, who in turn act as stewards of the watershed.” Is the vision achievable? Will it become a reality in a couple decades because people respond to the management plan or because they begin to do the right things? Will they have to be told by way of the plan what the right things are, or will they inherently know what they must do?

Rehiring city CAO could’ve done this. The optics aren’t good. I don’t have the wherewithal to ask the questions. That’s why we are trying to get the attorney general in here.” Pharand also took exception to the fact that Allin was retained as a consultant even after he was relieved of his duties as city CAO. “Doug Allin is sitting pretty,” he said. “It’s all a lark. It doesn’t mean anything. Why would you let him walk out with the cell phone and computer? He’s got access to everything going on in the city. There’s something really wrong here. It’s really stinky.” Pharand lives in rural Grand Forks (Area D) and loves the community. Although he doesn’t live within city limits, he worked in town, he shops in town and pays into shared services such as schools, recreation centre, parks, sewer and more. His mailing address is Grand Forks. He said he is trying to bring awareness to the residents about the issue. He said it’s troubling how they hide behind in-camera meetings. “My opinion matters tremendously in the community because I’ve been a community activist in Grand Forks on issues related to Grand Forks since 1985,” said Pharand. “I’ve been very involved in the community process. It’s not that I just parachuted down.” Pharand has not yet talked to the attorney general (Suzanne Anton) but is getting his information and questions in order before he does. “We’re dealing with the law and we’re dealing with the municipal act and my feeling is that there was a miscarriage of justice,” said Pharand. “The only appeal I have in this is through the attorney general’s office…if there has been any miscarriage of justice by the old council or whatever that it be pointed out and redressed.” He is also planning to make a petition, which he will bring to the streets of Grand Forks soon, to the attorney general. Responding to a question from the Gazette on whether the attorney general’s office would look into the matter, a representative said, “Neither the community charter nor the Local Government Act have rules specifying the terms and conditions of a statutory officer’s employment. Generally these are decisions that local governments make under their broad authorities to enter into contracts.” Mayor Frank Konrad said that the termination was not shrouded in secrecy as some members of the public have stated. He also said there is no issue. “My response is there is no response. If citizens have concerns they should come forward and express them. Council made a decision that I feel as mayor was a good decision.” Konrad said it is unlikely the

PICKLE BALL PROPOSAL IMPACTING BARBARA ANN PARK TENNIS COURTS The pickle ball group has requested that Council consider having the City re-purpose one of the tennis courts at Barbara Ann Park and install four (4) permanent pickle ball courts. The popularity of pickle ball is picking up and the local pickle ball community is growing rapidly both from residents and visitors alike. Pickle ball is recognized as a fast-paced game, great for hand-eye co-ordination, mental alertness and socializing. The pickle ball group currently plays at the Barbara Ann Park tennis courts during the spring, summer and early fall months. Temporary lines were painted within the tennis court lines a few years back but have become too confusing. The existing tennis court nets are too high as per pickle ball guidelines. The City would like your feedback regarding the request to eliminate one of the Barbara Ann Park tennis courts and resurface and paint on the pickle ball lines. Your opinion is important to us and we look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Sasha Bird, Manager of Development and Engineering, via email or telephone by 4:00 p.m. on May 14, 2015, to share your thoughts.

Notice of road maintenance, logging and log hauling operations in the Gilpin Grasslands and Morrissey Creek area. Logging, road-building, and road-maintenance operations in areas on and adjacent to the Gilpin and Dan O’Rea Forest Service Roads will commence on April 20th and carry on for a period of 2 - 3 months. There will be significant industrial traffic and road construction activity in this area, and the road may be closed to all vehicular traffic for lengthy periods as the main roads are upgraded. Interfor requests that members of the public avoid travelling these roads on weekdays during the duration of the project. If travel cannot be avoided, observe the procedures posted on “Haul Road Protocol” signs. Be sure to travel on the right side of the road and yield to oncoming industrial traffic. The haul roads are “radio-assisted”, meaning that two way radios are used to assist in traffic control. If you have a two way radio, monitor the posted radio frequency. Public users are advised to wait for an industrial vehicle and ask for assistance on how best to proceed. Please observe signs indicating “active logging” or “active worksites”, and do not enter these areas. Interfor apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jamie Hibberson, Woodlands Supervisor (250-443-2408).

Lake appears in video CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

FRIDAY, MAY 1 Meet at Grand Forks Arena Parking Lot 9:30 am Free transportation to Cascade Falls Pullout Ride ends at Grand Forks City Park Kids under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult Dress for changing weather, bring water bottles & snack Registration Deadline: April 27 GFREC 250-442-2202/442-3488 Bus driver: Ric Kost

Invasive mussels are a threat in British Columbia, a new documentary declares. The video features several lakes in B.C. which face threats from the mussels including Christina Lake. Locals appearing in the video include: Grace McGregor, RDKB director for Christina Lake; Jeff Olson, director of the Christina Lake Stewardship Society; and Barb Stewart, coordinator, Boundary Invasive Species Society. RDKB Area C/Christina Lake and the Christina Lake Stewardship Society contributed to the making of the documentary, which was made to bring awareness to the threat of invasive species and the need for more government funding to monitor boats travelling into B.C. “The Boundary Invasive Species Society would really like to see mussels being prevented from entering B.C.,” said Stewart. “We thought being involved in this movie would help raise awareness and gain support for getting mandatory boat inspections at the borders.” The video was produced by Okanagan filmmaker Brynne Morrice at several lakes around the province. Stewart said although there are no invasive mussels currently in Christina Lake, there is a threat with little enforcement of the laws regarding transporting zebra or quagga mussels.

Morrice got the idea for the film after learning that the B.C. government still hadn’t put anything in place at the borders. “I knew it was only a matter of time before an infested boat got in,” he said. “I was losing sleep over it. It was pretty simple to add up the facts and see how massive a problem this is. I had to do something. So after kicking around a few different ideas, I decided to make the film.” Morrice said the video is for every person living in B.C. He said that even those who don’t swim, boat or fish will be affected. “Power bills will go up, food costs will go up, taxes will rise and the overall economy of B.C. will suffer,” he said. “The goal of the film, therefore, is to educate everyone in B.C., and to unite everyone in B.C. to call on our government to put in place the FULL border protections that are necessary to protect our province.” You can see the documentary and get more information at

Grants assist with local programs CRAIG LINDSAY

Grand Forks Gazette

The city has received a grant from the provincial government to help with local programs. Grand Forks received the grant from the government for $171,112. The grant is an unconditional operating grant from the Strategic Communities Investment Fund, also known as the Small Communities Grant. “These grants are a significant boost for local governments in our communities,” said Linda Larson, Boundary-Similkameen MLA. “The funding allows them to invest in pro-

grams and services that improve safety and quality of life.” The Grand Forks portion is part of $1,017,804 being spent in the Boundary-Similkameen and $40 million spent throughout the province to help meet local needs including more policing, new equipment, increased safety initiatives, infrastructure and service delivery priorities. Also receiving grants were Greenwood ($130,017) and Midway ($111,313). The RDKB will receive a regional district grant of $70,720. The money is the first of two annual payments. A further payment of $75 million will be made in June 2015.

Finding Vivian Maier superb LIZANNE EASTWOOD Submitted to the Gazette

In today’s social media society, taking photos that document almost every waking moment of our lives doesn’t seem like anything special. Most of us are walking around with a camera/phone in our pocket making it easy to show people pics of flowers that just started blooming in our garden, the perfect pie crust we created for dessert last night, baby’s tooth that just appeared and the beautifully plated sushi we had for lunch. Taking photographs wasn’t such a simple and instant task 50 years ago. Finding Vivian Maier is the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that

were hidden in storage lockers and, discovered decades later, is now among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her. This superb documentary has won numerous awards, including an Oscar nomination for best documentary. Spotlight Films is proud to present Finding Vivian Maier at the GEM Theatre on Tuesday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. Also included in the evening is the short film Portrait as a Random Act of Violence, by award-winning filmmaker Randall Okita. An allegorical and surprisingly beautiful film about an artist who is not who he initially seems to be. Mystery abounds in both films!

for a total of 4,500 months of accommodation. The average length of tenancy is approximately three years. Clark said that one of the original tenants still lives there. “Many tenants have trained for new careers while living there, including teachers, nurses and health care aides,” he said. When the Gables Housing Society was able to secure funding from BC Housing they approached the city and were provided with land with a 60-year lease. The original five Gables directors (Kelly Thomas, J.J. Verigin, Dave Marshall, Ron Little and Clark) are all still on the board. Kevin Lloyd and Margaret Steele have also been added. Kevin and Judith Lloyd were the original managers/coordinators for the place. “They provided admirable service for many years providing the template which has enabled the facility to remain in like-new condition,” said Clark. The Gables is currently full but Clark said they are hoping to maintain a waiting list of eligible tenants. Applications can be made online at Further information is available from current coordinator Jackie Joyce at 250443-0013.

It was 20 years ago that a local realtor came up with the idea that affordable housing was needed in Grand Forks for low-income families. With help from Judith Lloyd, realtor Janet McDonald was able to acquire funding to do two separate feasibility studies and hire a coordinator to submit a proposal to construct a non-profit housing complex in town. Five years later, the Gables was born. The complex is owned and operated by the Gables Housing Society, which is

run by a board of directors chaired by Terry Clark. “The Gables is a non-profit organization that provides housing for 25 families,” said Clark. “It’s 60 per cent allocated for subsidized for lower income people and 40 per cent units designated for market use. Realistically, we seldom get to the market threshold.” The complex, which is at the west end of Grand Forks near Extra Foods, is only for families with children. The units, which are all month-tomonth rentals, are primarily two and three bedrooms over three floors. In all, 144 families have lived there

Well equipped, compact

It’s been called one of B.C.’s most bizarre drug cases in recent memory. A story with a cast of characters including an oddball hippy, a pot-bellied pig, an overly friendly raccoon and 24 black bears. Oh, and a thousand pot plants, apparently guarded by the bears. The bust took place in August of 2010 near Christina Lake, and the story travelled to all parts of the world, including the United States, Denmark, England, India and Russia, where a news anchor lady could not stop laughing as she read the story. The New York Post declared, “Don’t Smokey near this bear.” Allen Piche, aka the “oddball hippy,” has just released his book, The Beardude Story, which chronicles his side of this strange tale. “Over the 12 years that I befriended these bears, it became obvious that they were nothing like what I’d been taught,” Piche said, who admittedly hand-fed as many as 20 bears at a time near his mountain home. “If they were dangerous wildlife, I would never have lived to tell this story.” With a recounting of his educational history in eastern Canada, designed to show the evolution of a bear feeder, Piche begins the book touching upon many of the issues that concerned youth at the time. “Many of us figured that we had better decide for ourselves what was right and wrong,” he said, “because the system tended to direct

thought for ends other than truth. The idea being to perpetuate their own functions, and to control individuals in the service of these functions.” He moved west where, in 1999, Piche fed his first bear. The book tells tales of interspecies friendships—“friendships that defy the current beliefs about black bears and raise important issues about current bear management practices,” Piche said. The book walks readers through the police bust and his subsequent efforts to keep kibble on the grass for his bear friends until they went off to den for the winter. He also gives a brief survey of his research on black bears, leading to a comprehensive rebuttal of the Ministry of the Environment’s Impact Statement. When asked if the bears were really taught to guard a marijuana crop, Piche smiled and said, “I couldn’t even train the bears to stay off the car, much less make them understand the concept of guarding private property. And the raccoon immediately tried to distance himself from me when the police arrived for the bust by sucking up to them—unfortunately for him, not everybody thinks that a raccoon climbing up your pant-leg is a positive experience.” The Beardude Story is available for $20 at the Pedaller’s Place and Pharmasave in Grand Forks, Lisa’s Lakeside Bistro at Christina Lake, and online at

The answer to the name of the Grand Forks Choral Society’s spring concert is that of course there’s no way they can keep from singing! The Grand Forks Choral Society (GFCS) invites everyone to attend one of its concerts, “How Can I Keep from Singing?” Saturday, May 2 at 7 p.m. or Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m. in the GFSS auditorium. All seats are $10 because the group believes that music should be reasonably priced for everyone. The GFCS Junior Choir joins in with their bubbling energy as well. As most people know, the GFCS has stopped printing programs to hand out to the audience. This is the “green” attitude of our lovely director, Kirsten Nicolson, who has even figured out how many trees we have saved over the years! There are large programs in the lobby and the Grand Forks Gazette will print the program in its April 29 issue for you to bring with you if you need one. A question asked is how does the choral society learn/practice its music? Nicolson, and Gary Cuthbert create a practice CD of the parts, soprano/alto/tenor/bass, and this is used for the daily practice tape. When society members get together on Wednesday nights, Nicolson manages to remind them of the dynamics! You can also see the program on our website,

The Broadway musical Chicago came to Grand Forks thanks to the Boundary Music and Theatre— the scene is cast in the 1920s, the Jazz Age as some might call it with the stage backdrop draped in rich blue hues and appropriate props of that era such as a gramophone, tall floor lamps and furniture dating back in history. The stage set depicted a time of mobs, gangsters and flappers—women who wore short skirts just above the knee, low cut ritzy evening wear with tassels and sequins, bobbed hair and bell shaped hats adorned with berets and feathers, and who traditionally smoked, drank and listened to jazz as was extravagantly, but yet tastefully played out in this show. The men wore Gatsby style clothing—striped and neutral coloured suits with wide legged trousers, shirts, anchored by ties, vests and suspenders and charming fedora type vintage hats. The vibrant performers enter the stage singing All that Jazz with lead singer Velma Kelly played by Kyra Hogan and commentary of “two jazz babes moving as one” introduced as the “Kelly Sisters”— yet there was only one. Initially, this paradox was slightly confusing as there was only one Kelly Sister and it wouldn’t be until the end of the performance that we would come to know the second sister. Moving into the next scene, Roxie Hart (Wendy Faulkner) was involved in an extramarital affair with Fred Casely, played by James Elliot. Fred breaks up with Roxie all the while laughing and mocking her, so she gets out her gun and shoots him dead. The plot thickens as Roxie’s husband Amos Hart (Nathan Vogel) comes home from work. Roxie weaves a tale of an attempted burglary while she was sleeping and claims she shot him in self-defense. Policeman Sergeant Fogarty (Ted Invictus) and DA Martin Harrison (Dustin Horkoff) show up and arrest Roxie. Roxie is taken to the county jail known as “cell block” where she joins sex murderesses Annie (Alisha Hiebert), Katrina (Oksana Stoochnoff), June (Deanna Stent), Liz (Christina-Ann Baker) and Mona (Alaina Condruk). Wearing black and white striped jail garb and smoking cigarettes, the murderesses sing and dance to the Argentinian Tango dazzling the audience with their atrocious slang and vagrant personas of risqué wild women gonebad.

Cell block Matron Mama Morton (Deb Battrick), known to the inmates as just “Mama”, waltzes in singing Reciprocity. Her motto “you take care of mama and mama will take care of you” demands a level of respect from the women by keeping them in line. Although this scene was a little bawdy it was humorous at the same time, yet it left one to wonder whether she was an inmate or a warden. Roxie hires Billy Flynn (Bob Dupee), a shyster lawyer, but Roxie eventually fires him over his disloyalty and manipulative tactics. Roxie goes to court, but is set free when a commotion happens outside the courtroom. Velma suggests that they collaborate and work together and hit the Vaudeville theatrical scene. The last scene hits the newspaper stands “Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly” come together singing Shake our Blues Away and ending scene with all of the performers singing All that Jazz. Directed by Deborah Baker, this performance was a fabulous rendition of the original play performed in 1975. Comments from the audience indicated that although there were a few confusing spots and a little flat at the end, for the most part the performance was done exceptionally well with great local talent. On an especially high note were the comments about the glitzy costumes and designs that replicated an era that was precisely that of the Roaring Twenties.

Dress-up for Doukhobor Day The Boundary Museum and Interpretive Centre welcomed many children and parents during spring break to participate in the Event-A-Day Program. Pictured from left to right are Colton McNevir and Kalina Haffner, who participated in Doukhobor Day and enjoyed dressing up the occasion. In all, the museum saw 86 children and 26 parents over the seven days of special event days.  Cher Wyers photo

We aren’t the only ones basking in the unseasonable warmth. The change in weather also brings out ticks–small bugs that feed on the blood of humans and animals and can sometimes transmit disease. “Ticks are most often found in tall grass and wooded areas, so covering up before you head outdoors and checking for ticks on yourself, your children, and your pets after being outdoors are simple things that go a long way to prevent tick bites,” said Gwen Barker, communicable disease specialist with Interior Health. The most common tick species in the Interior Health region is the wood tick, which does not carry the Lyme disease bacteria. The wood tick can carry other diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, although it is very rare. Some ticks also have toxins that can cause temporary muscle weakness and paralysis if attached for several days, but the symptoms fade once the tick is removed. Signs of many tick-borne infections can be quite similar and include fever, headache, muscle pain, and rash. The tick species that carries Lyme disease (Ixodes pacificus) is more common in the coastal areas of B.C., but may also be present in low numbers in the Interior region. Less than one per cent of Ixodes ticks in B.C. carry Lyme disease.

High talent and calibre

The Gazette is pleased to present part two of a three-part series on Boundary hockey history by Gerry. Foster. Also look forward to a special article entitled “The Wee Scot” which will cap this very interesting, informative recounting of our history.


For the Grand Forks Gazette

The Players The Boundary Hockey League was anything but a casual recreation league. Competitive and earnest, players were paid and/or offered jobs to move here and play hockey. The following reference on the Spokane hockey book website is a prime example; “the team from Grand Forks (is) bringing in two hockey playing doctors from Toronto, Barney Quinn and Art Mann.” That’s a novel way of solving the family physician crisis! The article continued, “Phoenix added Roy Clark and Roy Clothier and Greenwood brought in enough new bodies to win the 1910 title.” As it is today, money and other incentives were a central part of the negotiations in obtaining topnotch players. Two other Ontarians, who became more famous than the aforementioned Grand Forks doctors, were Lester and Frank Patrick. Their father moved to Nelson, B.C. from Eastern Canada and became a major lumber entrepreneur. They moved to Vancouver and established the Pacific Coast Hockey Association in 1911, the inaugural season being 1912-13. Apparently Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix became farm teams of the west coast clubs, certainly an indication of the talent and calibre of play in the BHL. Arguably the most talented and famous hockey player ever to play in Grand Forks was Duncan McMillan ‘Mickey’ MacKay. In fact, his story and connection with Grand Forks is so inspiring it merits a separate article which will appear in an upcoming Grand Forks Gazette. The following comment from his bio on the Legends of Hockey section of the Hockey Hall of Fame website underlines the significance of the Boundary Hockey League: “Signed as a free agent by Grand Forks (BDHL), November 24, 1913. Signed as a free agent by Vancouver (PCHA), November 3, 1914.” Another gifted competitor was Dummy Lobsinger. When he came to the Boundary the story is that he was as highly sought after as a top round draft pick or free agent in today’s sports world. I first heard of him in a piece where the writer referred to him as “Dummy Lobsinger”, and added, “Yes, Dummy was his real name!” In actual fact Dummy

was not his real name; his given name was Alexander Lobsinger, born in Mildmay, Ontario. The Lobsinger name was known far and wide because of the Lobsinger Bros. famous threshing machines, manufactured in Mildmay, although I am uncertain if he was related to that family. Lobsinger, who played in Grand Forks in 1913-14, was totally deafened by measles when he was 21 months old. Today nicknaming someone with a hearing impairment Dummy would be inappropriate. He was born in 1888 and developed into an excellent hockey player. While he was still in school, he was wooed by the Ontario Junior Hockey Association and went on to play for several teams including the University of Toronto. Alexander then played in Saskatchewan for two seasons, including a stint with the Moose Jaw Robin Hoods — what an intriguing name for a hockey team! The Deaf Culture Centre gives this account of the next move in his hockey career, “Lobsinger broke into the semiprofessional ranks when he was acquired by the Grand Forks Hockey Club of the British Columbia Boundary League.” By all accounts he was a tremendous competitor and pos-

deafened at the age of three from spinal meningitis. He was a goalie but after a few weeks he was traded to a team in Fernie, B.C. Another player who joined the Grand Forks roster was Joel Rochon who is credited with introducing the hook check. A photo of the 1914 Championship team from Grand Forks is in the Boundary Museum. In it you will meet the trio of MacKay, Lobsinger and Rochon.

sibly the highest paid player in the area. He turned down two professional contracts with the Patrick brothers of the Pacific Coast League and moved to Ottawa after one season in Grand Forks. Apparently he never played hockey again. Alexander Lobsinger was a teammate of Mickey MacKay in Grand Forks. One can only speculate as to how dangerous this twosome would have been playing together at the coast for the Vancouver Millionaires if Alexander had accepted one of those contracts from the Patricks. The Grand Forks team also signed John T. Walter who was

for the Edmonton Oil Kings in 1966 when they defeated Bobby Orr and the Oshawa Generals to win the Memorial Cup. It has been said that he was one of the best hockey players to come out of British Columbia in the late 1960s and early ’70s. He first played professionally in the Eastern Hockey League for the Johnstown Jets—remember the movie Slap Shot with Paul Newman? He was a prolific scorer at every level he played, scoring over 350 goals in nine seasons in the EHL and World Hockey Association. His brother Walt was a member of the 1961 World Champion Trail Smoke Eaters.

Star Player in Greenwood For two seasons, around 1959-1960, Eugene (Gene) Peacosh played minor hockey in Canada’s smallest city, Greenwood. He was born in Sherridon, Manitoba, about 62 km northeast of that great hockey town, Flin Flon. That’s the birthplace of at least 14 NHLers including superstar Bobby Clarke. Peacosh had moved to Greenwood with his parents and he spoke with me by phone earlier this year from his current home in Cranbrook. His memory of playing hockey in Greenwood was summed up in these words, “I played in that beaten down natural ice rink.” But it didn’t hamper his career as he went on to play junior hockey in Penticton and Swift Current, also playing

Register for organ donation at Service BC SUBMITTED

to the Grand Forks Gazette

Supporting organ donation is now easier thanks to a new partnership between BC Transplant and the 61 Service BC locations throughout the province. British Columbians visiting Service BC locations are now offered the opportunity to register their decision on organ donation. Currently, more than 95 per cent of British Columbians support organ donations but only 20 per cent have registered their decision to be a donor. This program will make it easier for those who have yet to sign up. Service BC centres are central offices where British Columbians can access a wide range of government services, such as registering your marriage or the birth of a child, or conducting a title search. Offering visitors information about organ donation, and assisting those interested in confirming their intention by registering online is a valuable service to B.C. residents
