Comedian explores the language of comedy WILL JOHNSON West Kootenay Advertiser

Canadian comedian Brent Butt doesn’t always know ahead of time what he’s going to say on stage. He’s amassed a significant arsenal of comedic content, drawn from 27 years of touring experience, but he doesn’t like to plan ahead. “What I do onstage is kind of determined by what the crowd is into,” Butt told the Advertiser. “You pack hundreds of individuals into a space together and that’s a brand new animal that’s never existed before. The fact that every night it’s different is what keeps it fresh and exciting. All these years later and I’m still in the wings not knowing.” But things have evolved somewhat different since he started out with his career. “In the early days you have to do shows in rooms where you know there’s a legitimate threat of physical altercation. Stripper joints, biker bars. You’re thinking ‘I might get knifed here’ and a few times I had to leave through the kitchen.” Hopefully nothing of the sort will happen when Butt brings his act to the Capitol on May 13 at 7:30 p.m. Butt said fans of his hit show Corner Gas will recognize his comedic sensibilities, but his stand-up routine is significantly different than his show. “Making TV is a very collaborative thing, it’s a team sport. There are some similar sensibilities in my act — I was the one responsible for the tone of the show — but this will be less joke-jokes and more wordplay, fun with language. I like to find something new in the mundane.” He said he’s fascinated by ordinary con-

versation. “Rural colloquialisms fascinate me, but prim and proper, erudite language is also interesting to me. I like when those two merge. Any time I can get in that sweet spot, when I’m mixing sophistication with blue collar buddy comedy, that’s what I’m looking for.” These days Butt, who has amassed a number of awards for his work, is primarily pouring his attention into his newly formed Sparrow Media Company. “We named it Sparrow because it’s a bird that doesn’t feel the need to fly south. This has been exciting transition for me because up until now I’ve only worked on things I’ve created, but now I’m opening the company to work with other creatives who have brought me ideas.” He said he loves having a chance to collaborate. “These are people I know and respect who have projects that have legs, and I’m interested in bringing them to life. Maybe I can open some doors they can’t. It sounds more altruistic than it actually is though—really, working with creatives makes me feel good.” The show will also feature special guest Jamie Hutchinson. All seats are reserved and tickets are $42.50. The show is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection.

Community

Rural advisory council Area C/Christina Lake director Grace McGregor is one of only 14 people from across the province named to BC’s new Rural Advisory Council. The appointment was made on March 11 by Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Donna

Barnett, parliamentary secretary. The mandate of the council is to provide independent and impartial input and advice to the BC government on matters related to rural development in the province, strengthen rural economies, and support rural prosperity and thriving rural communities across the

province. McGregor said she was asked if she wanted to join the committee after being involved with the Rural BC project previously. “Because I had chaired the steering committee for the Rural BC project, I felt rather bound to do that so I did,” said McGregor. “I’m

really, really happy about the people at the table. The province is really well represented.” The committee met for the first time last week in Victoria. McGregor said they have a number of different topics they will be exploring in the coming year. “I think the direction will prob-

ably be different each meeting because it will hinge on what the group wants,” she said. The initial focus for the council will be to provide advice on rural economic development, including rural access to capital and business development support for rural entrepreneurs and businesses.

Dragon’s Den draws a crowd Liz bevan West Kootenay Advertiser

The dragons have made their decisions. On stage at the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail on Friday night, contestants from all over the West Kootenay region pitched their business ideas in hopes of taking home that over-sized check. Organized in three categories, junior, senior and post-secondary, contestants each had their five minutes in front of the dragons, selling different ideas like tire studs, a hula-hoop lifestyle, mapping and grocery apps and more. The stage changed with every presentation. Presenters used many visual aids from skis to chickens to a huge iPhone. When the votes were all tallied, including the 20 per cent audience vote, winners were announced to loud applause and camera flashes. First up, the juniors. Taking the top spot and a $1,500 check was Michael Ganzert and SparrX, a unique system of sensors for martial arts pads that keeps track of hits and points on a computer or tablet. Ganzert demonstrated his product by asking some of the dragons to punch him in

the chest, getting a few laughs and garnering a lot of interest from the audience. However, he says he feels like his presentation could have gone better. “I felt like I could definitely have prepared a lot more for it,” he said after the big show. “There were certain points that I wanted to say, but I forgot to say at the time.” He described feeling weird when we heard his name called as the winner of his category, and with his big check, Ganzert says he is still trying to figure out which parts of his sensor system need the most investment. “I am not 100 per cent certain yet (where the money is going to go),” he said. “I am weighing my options.” Coming second in the junior division, and winning $1,000, was Darrin McBee and Keegan Christiansen from Stanley Humphries Secondary School with their idea for Power Studs. Designed for ATV and dirt bike tires, the studs are more durable and won’t ruin a tire while costing less and lasting longer than current products on the market. continued on page 6

Two students from Nelson’s Wildflower Middle School won $500 for their 3 Little Pigs Livestock Care business – a livestock and gardening service for vacationing farmers. Talia Westergreen and Nathanial Laybourne would stay at a farm while the owner is on vacation, feeding and watering the animals and plants. Everyone was a winner in the senior category. Four out of for presenters took home some money to improve their home businesses. Winning $1,500, Hannah Bauman and Rebekah Liszt from Stanley Humphries

pitched their idea for an app called Use it or Lose it that catalogues grocery items and their expiry dates. A firewood delivery service, BCS Firewood, based in Grand Forks won Sebastian Sullivan and Brandon Drexler $1,000 to purchase a trailer and expand their home delivery business. Tied in third place and each winning $500, Soothing Sounds by Crowe students Austin Forry and Anthony Wilson and Positive Hoop Life by fellow Crowe student Rachel Danczek. Soothing Sounds is the brand name of a speaker pillow that plays white noise along with music to aid in sleep. Positive Hoop Life, by Danczek, is a series of hula-hoop workshops with health and fitness

in mind. The only presentation in the post-secondary category came from Maxwell Nicholson, a Grand Forks native studying at the University of Victoria. He pitched Ideas Café – a coffee shop that focuses on networking. He described the concept as LinkedIn meets Starbucks. All of the contestants underwent thorough questioning from the dragons at the judge’s table: Trail Mayor Mike Martin, Program Manager at Juice FM and the GOAT John Helm, Trail Councillor and finance guy Kevin Jolly, Director of Sales for Black Press Boundary publications Karen Bennett, Spencer Smith, VP of commercial services for Pacific Coastal Airlines, and last year’s Junior Dragon’s Den

The Steps Company Dancers had a successful tour down south over the March break. They proudly represented their country and their hometown, as they danced their way from Disneyland, through Hollywood and all the way to Ensanada, Mexico. The company, directed by Rhonda Michallik, has been working very hard since September on a 20-minute production number called “Oh Canada, Eh.” This piece, a witty montage of many styles of dance from classical ballet to hip hop not only showcased the talent and diversity of the Steps Dance Company, but also was a quirky and entertaining way to teach our neighbours south of the border a little bit about what it is like to be Canadian. The dancers, 25 students ranging in age from nine to 18, started the tour with a performance in Disneyland’s California Adventure Park. Following that, and a highlight for many of the dancers, was going to Hollywood to take hip hop classes at the Interna-

tional Dance Academy studios, which is host to the rehearsals for the TV Show So You Think You Can Dance. After that, they boarded the Carnival Imagination, a cruise ship which took them from Long Beach, Los Angeles to Ensenada Mexico. Onboard the ship, they performed on the Dynasty Theatre main stage. Volunteer mom, Sandi Jewell said the whole trip was a great way to offer the students some exposure outside of their small town. “It’s [our] way of giving the kids a different experience in the dance world.” Every two years the the dance group embarks on a trip similar to this, instead of going to various competitions and shows, which happens every other year. This was a really unique and challenging experience for them, as they had to adapt to the movement of the ship while they danced. Cruise ships are a very feasible form of employment for dancers out of high school, Jewell added, so giving them a taste of what that work would

be like was great for the kids. The dancers had to perform while the ship was stationary out at sea for the final day and while it didn’t make any forward progress it sure did rock now and then.

It’s our way of giving the kids a different experience in the danced world. SANDI JEWELL

“They only really had one rehearsal,” said Jewell, “because of time constraints and after that early morning ses-

sion they pretty much had to wing it, but they did great.” The dancers said as long as they were moving they were fine, but when it came to balancing and holding a pose, the struggle was real. “As an audience though, you couldn’t tell,” she added. They are now back home to finish up their season. You can catch their “Oh Canada, Eh” production, as well as some of their other great work, on May 22 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson. This show is a fundraiser for the Steps Dance Company Arts Scholarship fund. This scholarship, in it’s inaugural year, will go to a Grade 12 student to help them continue to pursue a passion for the arts. This year it will go to a JL Crowe graduate, however the company hopes to grow this scholarship fund each year in order to expand the program and be able to support multiple artists from the West Kootenay region each year. Tickets for this show are available at the Capitol Theatre box office.

A deeper exploration of Doukhobor culture provided valuable insight to a class of 25 Selkirk College students who had an opportunity to sample the history, philosophy, food, language and spirit of a community that has helped shape the West Kootenay-Boundary region. Offered through the Mir Centre for Peace Summer Institute, Peace 216: The Doukhobors was an intensive five-day course that took place in and around Castlegar last week. The course explored the Doukhobors and their connection to issues of peace and conflict. Open to everyone, the course took a look at the beginnings in Russia to the current realities. Doukhobor history and culture were examined with attention to themes of peace, pacifism, violence and non-violence, community, and utopia. “I really think that our communities are missing out tremendously by not embracing the historical significance and the historical experience of the Doukhobor heritage,” said Sally Williams, a retired Castlegar teacher who became student for a week. “I think with the militarization of Canada, we need the influence of the Doukhobor people and the whole peace movement more than ever.” Williams joined a class that was comprised of a diverse group of students who had a multitude reasons for taking part in the educational experience. Williams was joined by

current Selkirk College students who were taking the class as part of their diploma programs, students with Doukhobor roots wanting to dig deeper into their backgrounds and community members who simply wanted more knowledge. “We have had an opportunity to engage in talking to people who are intimately connected to the culture that is expressed in speakers and the venues we have visited,” said Williams. “I feel very privileged to take part in this course.” Students spent the mornings in class with Selkirk College History/Peace Studies Instructor Takaia Larsen. Historical lectures were combined with presentations by guest speakers from the Doukhobor community including Vera Malloff, Elizabeth Malloff, Hannah Hadijin, Peter Evdokimoff, JJ Verigin and Fred Makortoff. In the afternoons they journeyed into the community for field study where they visited the Brilliant Cultural Centre, the Doukhobor Discovery Centre, Verigin’s Memorial Park, the Doukhobor Suspension Bridge, the Brilliant Cemetery, the Memorial Stone at the confluence and Zuckerberg Island. The class was also welcomed into the homes of Walter and Vera Kanigan, and Robin and Rebecca Thewall. At the Brilliant Cultural Centre, the class took part in helping members of the Doukhobor Kootenay Ladies Organization (KLO) make Russian borscht. The students packed

Lifestyle

Safe cycling saves lives

Kids of all ages love cycling. Cycling is fun, healthy and practical. It is a great way to spend time as a family, get exercise and travel around the neighbourhood. However; as with other forms of transportation, there are risks. Cycling is a leading cause of unintentional injury and hospitalization in Canadian kids under age 14 and those injuries can be very serious. “While the most common cycling injuries among children are broken bones and scrapes, head injuries are the number one cause of serious injury and death,” says Dr. Heather Wilson, Trauma Services Medical Director. “Unfortunately, every year in our emergency departments we see children with bicycle related injuries that are preventable.” Putting safety first ensures everyone enjoys the ride. “Following safe cycling practices, such as wearing a helmet, having a properly adjusted bike, and following the rules of the road can save lives,” said Lex Baas, Practice Lead with Promotion and Prevention. “Parents, as both teachers and role models, play a key role in keeping kids safe on the road.” Interior Health offers up these cycling safety tips for the whole family.

Wear a helmet: Parents and children should wear a properly fitted bike helmet. When correctly worn, a bike helmet can reduce the risk of serious head injury by up to 80 per cent. For information on how to properly fit a helmet visit Parachute Canada (http://www.parachutecanada.org/injury-topics/topic/C8). Check your ride: Ensure bikes are adjusted to the recommended height for the rider, tires are inflated and brakes are working properly. Bicycle size and height recommendations can be found on CAA’s bicycle safety webpage (http:// bikesafety.caa.ca/cyclists/bicycleequipment/choosing-a-bicycle.php). Be prepared: Everyone in the family should be trained in bicycle safety and the rules of the road. This includes the use proper hand signals and understanding and obeying all traffic signs. Pick family-friendly well-lit bike routes: Protect young riders by using designated areas for riding when available. Making sure bikes have reflectors and lights will make it easier to be seen. Pick the right side of the road: Always ride on the right side of the road, the same direction that traffic is going and stay as far to the right as possible Use your bell: Put bells on bikes and use them to announce when passing. If you don’t have a bell, use your voice. May 4-10th is Safe Kids Week — this year’s focus is on cycling and road safety. Now in its 19th year, this national public awareness campaign is designed to raise awareness about the frequency and severity of preventable childhood injuries, which are the leading cause of death amongst Canadian children. For more information on Safe Kid’s Week and bicycle safety, visit: www. parachutecanada.org, www.canadasafetycouncil.org/sports-active-living or www.bikesafety.caa.ca/cyclists/index. php.

Is it Johnson’s or Johnsons Landing? Greg Nesteroff West Kootenay Advertiser

Ninety-fourth in an alphabetical series on West Kootenay/Boundary place names Johnsons Landing presents us with an opportunity to address a vexing subject: the lack of apostrophes  in Canadian place names. In British Columbia Place Names, G.P.V. and Helen Akrigg explain that in 1890 the United States set up its Board of Geographic Names, “charged with regularizing, recording, and making official the country’s geographic names. One of the arbitrary rules that the Americans set for themselves was that geographical names must not contain apostrophes. In 1897 the Geographic Board of Canada came into being and proceeded to make official for Canadian names the noapostrophe rule.” So while you’ll frequently see it written Johnson’s Landing — that’s the form used by the Johnson’s Landing Retreat Center and in Mandy Bath’s recent book Disaster in Paradise — officially, it’s Johnsons Landing, as though there was more than one Johnson. In fact, the Kootenay Lake community was named for just one man, Algot Johnson (1875-1963). In Where the Lardeau River Flows, Jim McNichol recalled: “Algot was a miner. He came from Sweden to Colorado and from Colorado … he came north in the gold rush about 1895 to Kaslo. He was fishing in a rowboat and got caught in a storm and stayed down at the mouth of Kootenay

Joe Creek. While he was waiting for the storm he walked up and saw this beautiful flat. He started to save money to buy a piece.”  The earliest mention of Johnsons (or Johnson’s) Landing yet discovered is in The Kootenaian of April 27, 1911: “A gang of men went up Monday night to Johnson’s Landing to start work on the new government wagon road there.” Algot Johnson is also mentioned as living there on the 1911 census, along with Robert McKinney. However, The Kootenaian of May 4, 1911 referred to Johnson as “the pioneer Fry Creek rancher,” and the Nelson Daily News of April 30, 1912 and Jan. 9, 1913 also said he lived at Fry Creek — then regarded as a separate place. The Kootenaian of Oct. 16, 1913 reported Fry Creek would seek a post office, but it never opened. The creek was named for pioneer prospector/trapper Richard (Dick) Fry (1838-98) and is first mentioned in a mining notice in the Ainsworth Hot Springs News of Oct. 31, 1891. Johnsons Landing is one of few survivors of what used to be a long list of Kootenay Lake landing names. A couple of others in the same area were included on the 1911 census, but have since vanished: McIntyre’s Landing, which became Birchdale in 1926; and Gardner’s Landing, named for Walter James Gardner (1873-1938), who bought 200 acres sometime before 1909. It was an official steamer stop on the CPR timetable by 1913.

Some signs say Johnson’s Landing, others say Johnsons. The latter is the official form, due to an arbitrary decision in 1897.  Greg Nesteroff photos Algot Johnson died in Kaslo at 87. He never married. His death registration reveals he was born in Karlstorp, a tiny town in southern Sweden, to John Frederick Gustafson and Johanna Christina Danielson (Swedish naming conventions saw sons incorporate their

father’s first names in their surnames). The Johnsons Landing post office opened in 1917 and closed in 1970. Another Johnsons Landing existed in the New Westminster area in the 1890s.

Kindness Creates Wellness events tour

The Kootenay Boundary promoting mental health wellness A new initiative to connect parents, youth, teachers and doctors is making its’ way across the Kootenay Boundary. Brought to the region by the Kootenay Boundary Local Action Team for the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Collaborative, Kindness Creates Wellness is a series of events that bring together people in communities throughout the Boundary to focus on increasing mental health literacy for parents, teachers and youth, fostering stronger connections between community and schools, and reducing stigmas. “We know that the best care happens when the team surrounding the patient is working together,” said Dr. Cindy Loukras, Specialist Physician Lead. “These events are a great way to build the strong relationships necessary to fully support youth dealing with these issues.” Each Kindness Creates Wellness event will includes a screening of the film “Happy” and a specially selected panel of expert speakers to engage the audience in conversations about community mental health wellness and discuss how happiness increases the more one is physically active, performs kind actions for the benefit of others rather than for oneself, and feels close to family and friends. Dr. Todd Kettner - School District #8 Psychologist and Collaborative Team Member said, “We had over 65 people come to the first Kindness Creates Wellness event in Castlegar and it was great to see them engage

with each other around the subject of mental health wellness. It was a living example of the ultimate message the film gives – happiness is about relationship and how we help each other. It’s not about me or you, it’s about us.” Each Kindness Creates Wellness event will be tailored to address community mental health needs. Some will be community based, while others will be presented in the local school. The next event will be held on May 7, National Child & Youth Mental Health Day, at the Salmo Secondary School for students and parents. Events will follow through 2015 in Kalso (June), Nelson and Trail (both in the Fall). About the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Collaborative (CYMHSU) The CYMHSU Collaborative involves multiple individuals, organizations and ministries all working together to increase the number of children, youth, and their families receiving timely access to mental health services and support in the Interior Health region. The Collaborative is funded by the Shared Care Committee, with additional support from the Specialist Services Committee. Both committees are partnerships between and funded by the Ministry of Health and the Doctors of BC. www.sharedcarebc.ca/initiatives/cymhsu-collaborative. About the Divisions of Family Practice

The Kindness Creates Wellness event speaker panel answers questions from the audience in Castlegar. Hosted by the KB Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Collaborative, the Kindness Creates Wellness events now touring the Kootenay Boundary focus on building kindness, empathy and resilience to improve mental health wellness.

News/Sports Trail Walmart is expanding Liz bevan

Reminding you to Recycle!

West Kootenay Advertiser

The Walmart store in Trail will soon be expanding its services. Alex Roberton, director of corporate affairs with Walmart Canada, said the Trail outlet will soon become a Walmart Supercentre. “In Trail right now, there is a combination of dry food (in the grocery section) and some freezer and refrigerated sections,” said Roberton. “The existing offerings will grow and be expanded, offering more dry foods, more frozen and more refrigerated, and we will be adding fruits and vegetables, meat and fish. You can do your full grocery shopping there. Also, we will be closing the tire and lube service at (the Trail location).” There is no exact date set or specific details about the renovations released, but Roberton says the project will be completed in the very near future. “I don’t have any details on what is going to happen to the store from a construction standpoint, but I can tell you that it will be done this year,” he said. “There are no other specific changes (to the garden centre or automotive centre) planned right now. It is one of 29 Supercentre projects that we have planned to have complete by the end of the fiscal year, which is Jan. 30, 2016.”

Johnson’s or Johnsons Landing? continued from page 14

JERSEY The Jersey townsite, about 11 km southeast of Salmo, was born in 1947 when Canadian Exploration Ltd. examined lead-zinc showings on the claim of the same name. The claim was staked before 1916 although the name’s origin is unknown. It could be after the island in the English Channel or any number of places in the United States. The Jersey was one of several ore bodies — the Emerald was the key one — that kept Canex humming for more than 25 years, as recounted in Larry Jacobson’s Jewel of the Kootenays.

The Jersey townsite had over 120 homes, a school (Harold Lakes Elementary, named for the mine manager) and an Olympic-size swimming pool. The buildings and equipment were auctioned off in 1973 when the mine closed. While the name is no longer in use, there is a Jersey Creek, and until 2007, the Telus phone book included the notation “Jersey – See Salmo.”

Hills Exploration and Development Co. of Toronto, which owned 12 groups of claims in the Upper Duncan River country. The company’s president was James D. Edgar, speaker of the House of Commons from 1896-99. Other directors included Prince Edward Island premier Donald Farquharson and the Mohawk physician Oronhyatekha. The Nelson Tribune of Oct. 10, 1900 said: “At the head office on Jubilee Point the company has comfortable buildings, including a complete assay outfit which is kept busy on specimens from the company’s many properties.” Jubilee was the one of the company’s claims. Nothing was heard from them after 1901.

JUBILEE POINT This spot on the west side of Duncan Lake’s upper arm was first mentioned in The Ledge of June 23, 1898 as a polling station — in the provincial election the following month, 35 people voted there. It was the BC head office of the Gold
