Government announces Parks investment Buckman Coe ready for Golden Sound Festival ..................................9

Joel Tansey Over the past week, Kootenay-Columbia MP David Wilks announced a series of new investments for National Parks in his riding, including both Yoho and Glacier National Parks. The investment for Yoho will total more than $62 million, including extensive paving, guardrail replacement and slope stabilization work along the Park’s portion of the Trans-Canada Highway. It will also

include the re-paving of Emerald Lake Road and new signage leading to Takkakaw Falls. The July 17 Yoho announcement came one day after the federal government announced investments totalling $156 million for Glacier and Mount Revelstoke National Parks. That figure includes money set aside for paving, bridge rehabilitation and avalanche mitigations on the Trans-Canada. Continued on page 5

According to Sarah Osadetz, WildSafeBC community coordinator for Golden, locals are mostly doing their part to ensure that the summer remains quiet. During routine garbage inspections last week, Osadetz noted that just 10 garbage bins were left out on the south side of 9th Ave. S, while 26 bins were left out on the north side of 9th Ave. S. Those figures are down from last year, where 36 bins were left out on each side. “Congratulations to Golden, they’re starting to comply with the by-law (by) putting out their garbage at the right time,” Osadetz said. Still, Osadetz warns that those who are caught leaving their garbage out overnight, or putting it out too early in the morning, can face hefty fines. Fines that local Conserva-

are towards the middle and late stages of summer. Sour cherries can now be harvested and, according to Osadetz, there are a lot of people who are interested in either picking or receiving cherries. A fruit gleaning partnership between the Golden Food Bank and WildSafeBC will begin on Aug. 15 and continue every second Saturday until Oct. 3. Osadetz welcomes feedback from locals and is happy to help find economical solutions that work for any family in any neighbourhood that might lack proper storage facilities for their garbage.

Annual hangliding and paragliding event to be biggest in 19-year history

Hang gliders and paragliders will converge on Golden from July 25-Aug.2 for the annual Willi Muller Memorial.  Photo Submitted/Chantelle Carr Joel Tansey ly named, was won by Willi ler that first year and the competition was named in his honour Organizer and competitor following his 1998 death from a Randy Parkin says that what’s paragliding crash. now known as the Willi Muller Muller was an inspiration and XC Challenge started because mentor for many in the hang the 10 original competitors gliding community in Western “needed an excuse not to be Canada, including Parkin. home”. “He was actually the one who The Cross Country Challenge, got me doing competitions back as the competition was original- in the day,” Parkin said.

“I think (the event) is an important way for people to get into competition flying. Willi was a fan of responsibility and safety and those are kind of two things that I took away from spending time with him. You need to be responsible for yourself, make good decisions, fly within your capability and we need to be as safe as possible doing the kind of thing that we do.” The annual competition, which sees competitors launch from the top of Mt. Seven and take off for destinations as far down the valley as Canal Flats, and sometimes further, grew considerably since that first event. This year “the Willi” will include paragliders and hang gliders from across Western Canada, the Pacific Northwest and a small contingent from Europe. “This will probably be the largest congregation of free flight pilots in Canada this year and in the 20 some-odd years I’ve been running competitions, this is probably going to be the largest one in Canada ever,” Parkin said.

trip down in Skaha in Penticton.” A thrilling experience for any Canadian teenager, but Freebairn has found that another demographic is also getting a great deal out of the class. “The last five or six years we’ve had a large international student presence. I would say easily half of the class,” he said. “It’s a great way to see the town and the country, such a great experience for them.” When the program started in 2000, Freebairn taught one class. Since then it has expanded by 400 per cent, with GSS now offering one junior (taught by Ron Ainsley) and three senior classes. Although now looking back, Freebairn isn’t sure that a class like this would be approved given the liability considerations. “I think if you were setting up a program like this now, everybody is worried about liability, it would be very difficult. But because we’ve been doing it for so long,

and quite successfully without any incidents, we’ve been able to do it,” he said. “The safety considerations are huge for us, especially for rock climbing and ice climbing. There’s a lot of prep work, and there’s a climbing wall in the gym where we can go through belaying and tying knots, putting on the harness properly, that sort of thing.” Classes similar to this can be found throughout the province, although quite scarcely. Freebairn

often gets comments when he’s out on field trips from other climbers or hikers saying they wished they had something like this when they were in high school. “It’s becoming more and more popular, and it’s not surprising. The kids always come back from these trips, some of them quite tough especially if we’re winter camping, but they always return feeling like they’ve accomplished something.”

Car Jail for the Vehicles of Careless Smokers We’re facing one of the more serious forest fire seasons that British Columbia has seen in recent memory. Many of these fires are caused by human activity with one of the common activities being the careless disposal of cigarette butts. The provincial government has proposed that when the careless disposal occurs from within a motor vehicle, the vehicle should be impounded for a period of time. Will this idea die a quiet death or if the pace of new fires continues, do you think this is a good solution? I’m convinced that many smokers flick a butt out of their vehicle without thinking. It was not uncommon to stop a violator and see them take a last drag as I walked up to the vehicle and then watch the butt arc out the window onto the ground. I would offer them the opportunity to retrieve it or suggest I would do it for $81 if they didn’t want to. Inevitably the person would get out and pick the butt up, but not without some thought about whether I was serious or not first. This is a general safety problem which occurs in many contexts other than those involving a vehicle. Why should we consider using a road safety tool to deal harshly with only part of a wide ranging problem? Is something of an equivalent nature being planned for a hiker who tosses a still burning butt down on a trail or a city stroller who uses a mulched planter instead of an ashtray? If not, we should consider passing on the idea of a vehicle impound. Why do we seem so reluctant to use people jail on those who put us all at risk? Car jail immediately halts dangerous driving behaviour because there is a direct relation to the problem. While there are probably many sides to the issue of jailing people not the least being that it can happen long after the offence it might be a better choice to focus the mind of careless smokers.

NDP candidate says funding doesn’t make up for Parks cuts Continued from page 1

Kootenay-Columbia MP David Wilks (centre, right) was in Field last week to announce a federal government investment of more than $62 million for infrastructure in Yoho National Park.  Photo Submitted

The Kootenay-Columbia riding comprises Canada’s largest concentration of National Parks, making these upgrades an important realization for Wilks. “All of the improvements within the National Parks provide for a better experience and that’s what we’re trying to work on and it improves safety as well,” Wilks said. If he has his way, this will be just the start of investment into the Parks in this region, with Wilks having submitted a $5 billion proposal earlier this year in order to twin Highway 1 through Yoho, Mt. Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks. “I try every year to ensure that I put in a budget submission for the Parks. My heart, my passion is to try and get the Trans-Canada twinned but it’s a big ticket item,” Wilks said. “($5 billion) is a big pill to swallow when any Minister of Finance looks at it…but that’s the cost…as long as I’m still the member of parliament, my number one goal is to continually push to get the Trans-Canada twinned.”

For local NDP candidate Wayne Stetski, however, the latest investments from the Conservatives are a case of too little, too late. “It’s been a series of cuts…funding cuts, staffing cuts and service cuts for a number of years now under the Harper Conservative government,” he said. “The figures speak for themselves really.” In 2012, the federal government announced it would cut the $631 million Parks Canada budget by $29.2 million over three years. However, earlier this year, Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq told the House of Commons that Parks Canada’s overall budget had actually increased by 26 per cent since the Conservatives took office in 2006. Taking inflation into account, that figure is closer to 8.4 per cent according to the CBC and doesn’t account for expensive new projects, including the development of Toronto’s Rouge National Urban Park, which will eat up $14 million annually until 2022. Parks Canada has also said that of its buildings, valued at $15 billion, half are in poor to very poor condition.

RCMP Report: Confused hotel guest dials 911 upon check in Golden Star Staff reporter@thegoldenstar. net Stolen copper Police are seeking information from the public after a report was received this week that a large quantity of copper was stolen from the old Donald mill site. Anyone with information is asked to contact the GoldenField RCMP at 250344-2221 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-2228477. Egging on Selkirk Police were called to a residence on Selkirk hill on July 13 after tenants discovered that their house and one of their vehicles had been egged overnight. There was a minimal amount of damage but police would still like to determine who is responsible. Anyone with information is asked to contact local police or Crimestoppers. Argument at gas station On July 14 police responded to a 911 call from a pay phone at a local gas station in which a male caller requested police. Upon arrival it was determined that there was a minor argument between the male caller and

a female. Both parties were intoxicated and police made arrangements for the two to stay at separate hotels for the night before they headed back to Cranbrook. No further issues were reported with the two. Confusion for hotel guest Police received a 911 call from a concerned guest who was checking into a lodge in the Golden area. “The guest arrived and there was nobody there to check him in,” said Cst. Spencer Lainchbury, spokesperson for the Golden-Field RCMP. A sign at the front desk stating to call 911 in an emergency and another number to check in appeared to have been misunderstood, leading to the guest calling 911 to check in. Owed wages? Police attended a rural lodge on July 15 after it was reported that two brothers were refusing to leave the property as requested. Further investigation revealed that the two brothers from England had been on a work exchange program in which they provided services in exchange for room and board. The two

believed that they were owed money and were asked to leave when they made the request. “We see a few of these cases each year,” advised Cst. Lainchbury. “Unfortunately there is little we can do to assist workers in these types of disputes.” Information from the file was passed on to the Employment Standards Branch and Immigration for review and investigation. Roadside prohibition A local male received a 90 day driving suspension and 30 day vehicle impoundment after police conducted a traffic stop on the night of July 15. “Police observed a vehicle travelling at a slow rate of speed and noticed that the driver was unable to maintain lanes,” stated Cst. Lainchbury. A traffic stop was conducted with the vehicle and the investigating officer formed suspicion that the driver had alcohol in his system. Police allege that the driver failed to provide a sufficient sample of his breath into an approved screening device, and after three separate attempts the driver was issued an

Immediate Roadside Prohibition for failing to provide a sample of his breath. Crash for suspected intoxicated driver On July 16 police responded to a collision on Highway 1 near the Beaverfoot turnoff in which a vehicle had went off the road and crashed into the cement medians. The male was uninjured. “Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the collision however we were unable to prove that the male was intoxicated at the time of the crash,” advised Cst. Lainchbury. Single vehicle MVI Police were advised of a single vehicle collision on Highway 95 south of Parson on July 17. The driver reported that he had swerved to miss a deer causing him to leave the roadway. The male driver sustained minor injuries but was released from hospital shortly after. Tires slashed Police are seeking information after it was reported that the tires of a vehicle parked on 11th Avenue North overnight had been slashed. Anyone with information regarding this incident is

asked to contact local police or Crimestoppers.

Here’s to a clean fight


Wednesday, July 22, 2015 The Golden Star

Remember others at election time

Well, here we go. The federal election that almost feels American-like in its build up is finally peeking over the horizon, ready to fully engulf Canada’s media and public consciousness, if it hasn’t already. Ever since Justin Trudeau took over as the Liberal leader in 2013, Joel Tansey it seems like federal S TAR R EPORTER politics have become a giant waiting game, with everyone circling October 19 on their collective calendars. Well, we’re finally “only” three months away as of this past Sunday, and the circus is about to ramp up even further. In fact, the hysteria is even closer than you might think, with the first of several leader’s debates taking place earlier than ever, on Aug. 6. With that will surely come the first bout of mudslinging. Or at least the first bout on live, national television. In reality the mud slinging began long ago. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen the Conservative party’s ads bashing Justin Trudeau. “He’s just not ready”. “He’s in over his head”. They all have a similar theme. More recently the NDP have gotten into the mix with an anti-Conservative campaign on YouTube that depicts, among other things, the senate scandal and some of the wrongdoings of exConservative staffers. The Liberals, for their part, aired an ad campaign against...government advertising. The spots bemoaned the number of dollars the governing Conservatives had spent of tax payer money to advertise their various projects. All of this has me feeling a little bit jaded. What happened to clean politics? Politics where candidates touted their party’s platforms to the public. Instead, we’ve got candidates wearing cheap suits and pecking at each other like a bunch of chickens fighting over scraps. Alright, the suits are probably expensive, especially Justin’s. Of course, the brand of politics that I’m referencing never really existed. Elections have always been about as clean as an elementary school art room after a paper mache assignment. But maybe, just maybe, they can be. Maybe this can be the year where one candidate, one party, stands above the fray, looks down upon the rest, lets them throw mud at each other and walks away with a clean shirt and a mandate in the House of Commons. It’s almost impossible to envision that at the national level, where party leaders will continue to clash in the buildup to Oct. 19. Perhaps, however, we can have a certain level of cleanliness at the local level, where Conservative MP David Wilks attempts to hold back challenges from NDP candidate Wayne Stetski and Liberal hopeful Don Johnston. But who am I kidding? This is politics and the battle has just begun.

To the Editor, It’s somewhat of a tradition for Canadian politicians to throw around money at election time, wooing voters with promises of financial largess for themselves and their communities. This appeals to a very low human impulse: what’s in it for me? For more than 40 years Canada has been part of an international agreement committing to spend 0.7 per cent of gross national income on global development assistance, and we’ve never been further from this goal, currently at 0.24 per cent. Most developed nations are above 0.3 per cent, with several at the agreed-upon target.

Earning our fun in the sun Editor, The end of school often evokes the image of children chasing ice cream trucks and running through sprinklers. However, this summer, kids will be coming home with just a cone and melted ice cream dripping down their arms. This summer, my fellow young people, will be a scorcher. According to Statistics Canada, the average temperature since 1948 has been steadily increasing. Which means that this country is getting hotter and hotter, at a faster rate than almost any other country.

Canada repeatedly ranks in the top of all nations in terms of quality of life and standard of living. The vast majority of the world’s people live far below Canadian standards of nutrition, sanitation, clean water and security. As the election season winds up, with the inevitable promises of more money flying out of Ottawa, I’m waiting for all party leaders to acknowledge the wealthy and enviable position Canada already enjoys, and rather than showering us with more money, affirm their commitment to raising our global development contributions to the long-delayed 0.7 per cent. Respectfully, Nathaniel Poole Victoria

The consequences of the rise in temperature are dire. They include heat exhaustion, death – especially among the vulnerable – exposure to ultraviolet rays resulting in skin cancer, the rising population of mosquitoes carrying diseases such as the West Nile virus, and, eventually a shortage of water. Currently, B.C. is supplying California with water as they experience another drought, but experts believe that it won’t be too long before we experience our own drought. The reason behind the rise in temperature is due to global warming caused by us. We burn fossil fuels on a daily basis which has led to a greenhouse effect and erosion of the ozone layer. Trees and plants, which we rely on

to make oxygen, are being cut down for useless things like textbooks and photocopied tests. We finally found ways of reusing materials, yet not many people use the recycling bin. Even though watering our lawns is important, many of us seem to forget that freshwater is limited. Having a boiling hot childhood isn’t the best experience to have, but it’ll get worse if we let it happen. If we want to have fun, we need to earn it, instead of making our environment worse. We don’t want to settle on Mars earlier than expected. Leon Chen Surrey

“Yes. They give people access to the outdoors in a fairly easy manner. They do a good job of protection.”

“I’m going to say no. Their mandate is to preserve and protect and they aren’t doing that. They are mostly just promoting.”

“Generally speaking yes, but it could be better with improved infrastructure.”

MLA Report: Liquefied Natural Gas legislation a bad deal for B.C. The British Columbia Legislature has been recalled this summer to pass legislation related to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). If one chooses to take the time to do a bit of investigation of the promises made by the BC Liberals in the 2013 election about the development of a BC LNG industry, you soon discover that these declarations were both irresponsible and untrue. The BC Liberals have, in fact, signed a 25-year sellout of British Columbia’s resources. This is a sellout of our finite natural resources for the next generation with practically no benefit to British Columbians. The only benefit to this bill is that it helps Christy Clark politically, assuming one does not look too carefully at the deal. You may not believe me, but you must consider a - Norm Macdonald quote from Martyn Brown, a prominent BC Liberal MLA Columbia River-Revelstoke who served as Gordon Campbell’s Chief of Staff for almost a decade. Martyn Brown said, “The fine print of that deal will commit our province to a course that is environmentally reckless, fiscally foolhardy, and socially irresponsible. I say that as someone generally supportive of the

merits of LNG development, to the extent that it is invited without giving up more than we collectively stand to gain.” The BC Liberals promised 100,000 jobs, one LNG plant by 2015 with a dozen to follow, a $1 billion prosperity fund, an end to the provincial sales tax, the cleanest LNG in the world, and the elimination of the provincial debt. None of those promises were honestly made and the BC Liberals have put themselves in a corner where they are desperate to get anything that they can spin as a deal. And that desperation has led to a massive sellout to foreign state-owned Petronas. This is the deal that I am debating this summer in an emergency piece of legislation put forward by the BC Liberals. The legislation is a deal that locks in extremely low tax rates for over 25 years, has no job guarantees for BC or Canadian workers, and allows up to 70% of the work to be done by foreign workers. There are no apprenticeship requirements and it offers no role for First Nations. The BC Liberals say it is a $38 billion investment with $9 billion coming in government revenue. But again, this is not any thing approaching the truth. Martyn Brown doesn’t mince words when talking about this deal, and neither will I. There is no question. This deal is a bad agreement for British Columbia and British Columbians, signed entirely for political purposes with no care for the consequences for citizens today or into the future. These are the facts.

Ministry of Forests: Number of wildfires dropping, risks remain Ministry of Forests B.C. Government

With 159 wildfires burning throughout B.C. as of July 17, down from 166 on July 16 and 197 the week before, the Province continues to caution all British Columbians to be diligent with fire safety and to report all wildfires to authorities. While campfires are still banned in most regions, cooking stoves (including barbecues) that use gas, propane or briquettes are permitted. Portable campfire devices, with CSA or ULC ratings, using briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, are also permitted, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15

centimetres. There were a total of 17 new wildfires in B.C. on July 16 compared to 12 new fires the day before. As of noon on July 17, there were 159 active wildfires across the province (of these, 16 are active fires of note), with three states of local emergency due to wildfire, and seven Evacuation Alerts or Orders currently in effect. As of July 17, approximately 96 properties in the province are on Evacuation Order with over 200 homes and an estimated 300 residents of Tsi Del Del (Alexis Creek) First Nation on Evacuation Alert. These numbers will fluctuate as orders and alerts are put into place or rescinded.

For all current Evacuation Alerts and Orders in B.C., please visit: Evacuation areas include: -Sunshine Coast Regional District due to the Old Sechelt Mine wildfire, affecting 21 properties -Cariboo Regional District due to the Puntzi Lake wildfire northwest of Williams Lake, affecting 149 homes To keep up-to-date on emergency notices, Evacuation Alerts and Evacuation Orders, follow @EmergencyInfoBC on Twitter.

medal game on July 11 against the hosts from Finland, Canada got off to a slow start and they trailed 1-0 just 77 seconds into the contest in front of a lively, hostile crowd. If there was a sense of deja-vu on the Canadian bench - Canada having fallen to the Finns in the gold medal game the year before - they didn’t show it. Stephens’ squad regrouped quickly and tied the game at a goal apiece just two and a half minutes later. “We had a really good group of players this year, we had lots of professional experience on our team so the motivation and focus was pretty easy these past couple weeks with this group,” Stephens said. “Being down one or two in that sport isn’t anything to panic about, so we just stuck to what we were doing and the way we were playing.” Canada took its first lead of the game halfway through the second period and didn’t look back from there, holding Finland at bay and winning by a 4-2 count. The crowd of 6,678 in the Finnish city of Tampere was firmly behind

the home team, but Stephens says that, in a way, his group used that to their advantage. “We did a good job of blocking it out for the most part…A crowd like that not only fires up the home team but it also fires you up as well,” Stephens said. While Stephens relishes his role in the 2012 gold medal, Canada’s previous championship win, he says the triumph this summer ranks even higher. “In 2012 there were a couple of asterisks that were put on the team…there was a lot of talk that if the U.S. or the Swedes hadn’t got beat out in the quarterfinals, that we wouldn’t have won in 2012,” Stephens recalled. “This year, to go 6-0 through the tournament and to beat the top seed in the final. That to me was a stamp on it…there’s no question marks, no asterisks on this year.” The inline game is far from being at the forefront of Canadian sport despite its growing popularity overseas.

Annual Invitational Swim Meet. Facing weather of all sorts at the outdoor pool, cOmmOn the Dolphins tanSY had 56 swimmers attend including tanacetum three swimmers fromVuLgare the Special Olympics Swim Team. Standing on the podium for the first time ever, this weekend was Carter Thorne with a Bronze in Division 1. Also appearing on the podium for the first time was Roxy Coatesworth with a Bronze medal in Divison 1. Both of these Division 1 swimmers showed exemplary races this weekend proving that hard work and dedication pays off. Standing on the podium for Divison 4 with a Silver medal was Kaelan Malaka. For his first year in Division 4 swimming new races with longer distance, Kaelan had great swims and performed with great ease at his first swim meet of the season. Also on the podium in Division 4 was Meghan Oslund. Next on the podium in Division 6 were swimmers Hannah LaRoy with the Bronze medal and Zara Johnson with the Silver medal. Even after a grueling training week, doing intense dryland, weights and running programs these girls still managed to swim their best and receive a spot on the podium. Finally, receiving the Gold medal for Division 7 was Josh Hiraoka. For many of the younger swimmers it was their first swim meet attended in their swimming career. Younger swimmers with the Dolphins Swim Club participate in the Goldfish program where they learn the FUNdamental’s of swimming, make friends and learn to love the water. Participating in individual swims and relays, the Goldfish successfully completed races, achieving goals and having fun with fellow swimmers from across the Okanagan region. Some great swims were seen by Goldfish swimmers, Rylan Brunner, Summer Dascher, Sage Dascher, Danica Gulliford, Ella Janes, Malcom Labonville, Aila Lafleur, Holt Lafleur, Thane Malaka, Breck Nolin, Hayden Nolin, Aziza Rubenstein, Madison Sherriff, Megan Snopek, Malcolm Russell, and Hunter Thorne. Coaches Hailey Kehler, Hayley Plonka, and Caprice Rosentreter are very happy and proud of all the Goldfish swimmers and are very excited to see what they will accomplish as their swimming career progresses.

The next group of swimmers, aimed towards children Division 2 and up, is the Junior group. The Junior program is aimed towards kids also learning Fundamentals, hard work ethic and stroke technique. This group of swimmers has been working very hard to improve all four strokes, to make their swims efficient and improve times, while also having fun at the same time. This group proved that when you love a sport and you work hard during practice, it pays off in competition. Showing much improvement, some outstanding swims were seen by Emme Abbs, Roxy Coatesworth, Katey Durant, Braxton Gulliford, Amelia Hudson, Emma Janes, Annika Lafleur, Talon Malaka, Katrina McClean, Leah Michener, Niko Robinson, Lauren Russell, Carter Thorne, Lucy Wilson and Emilie Zabel. The Dolphins oldest group of swimmers in the club take part in the Senior Program where they train eight times a week in the pool including other programs outside the pool like weights and other cross training activities. The youngest group of swimmers in the Senior program from Division 4 showed drive and determination this weekend, especially in their Relays. Girls Division 4 relay, Kayla Lush, Quinn Morgan, Meghan Oslund and Emma Russell swam in a combined heat against the Boys Division 4 relay including, Kaelan Malaka, Thorin Malaka, Enzo Soret and Alan Struthers-Ward. With the friendly competition, the girls won the medley relay on Saturday and the boys won the freestyle relay on Sunday. Also participating in the swim meet this weekend was Golden’s Special Olympics Swim Team coached by Marie-Helene Labonte. Swimmers Sebastian Gylander, Nicholas McClean, and Shelley Poland competed in freestyle and backstroke races with much determination. The Golden Dolphins were very excited to integrate the Special Olympics Club into the swim meet and hope to have them attend some out of town meets with the Dolphins in the near future. The coaches and executive board would like to thank the lifeguards, the Golden Swimming Pool, the sponsors and all the parent volunteers who helped make this weekend such a success. Coaches Caprice Rosentreter and Hailey Kehler were pleased with the success of our home meet and are excited to see some more fantastic swims at future swim meets.

Buckman Coe among headliners for Soundfest

Buckman Coe will perform on the first night of this year’s Sound Festival on Aug. 21. Photo Submitted Joel Tansey Buckman Coe’s current repertoire was constructed from a number of musical inspirations and influences, all of them having an effect on the Vancouverbased artist to create his current sound. That sound combines

elements of folk, reggae and soul to create a brand of unique music that has vaulted Coe’s career forward. “I started getting close to a lot of different artists…whether they were local B.C. musicians or from the States or from Africa…that just really inspired me to try new things myself and

incorporate that into my writing,” Coe said. Naturally, how reggae fit with Coe’s existing sound was exceptionally important, but it was something deeper that also drew him to incorporate it into his music. “The kind of thing that reggae represents, I feel is also an extension of the things that I love about folk music,” Coe said. “In terms of trying to be conscience about contemporary themes and contemporary issues…it has a spiritual or social consciousness to it that kind of flows very naturally with what interests me and what I think is important.” Starting out as a solo performer, Coe’s act has grown steadily over the years and he now tours with a backing band, usually four or five others. The gigs have been piling up recently, with performances at the Vancouver International

Jazz Festival, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues and the Oregon Country Fair among his recent highlights. Breaking into the U.S. market has become a target of Coe’s as he recognizes he has a chance to grow his brand south of the border to complement his following in Western Canada. “(The Oregon Country Fair) was a big deal to me…it’s one of my favourite festivals,” Coe said. “It’s really encouraging to start to get some recognition and break out of the Canadian market.” With previous shows at both the Golden Taps and the Rockwater, Coe has built a fanbase locally and he’s sure to expand upon that when he takes his place as one of the headliners at The Golden Sound Festival on Aug. 21.

With a summer full of endless sequels, remakes and unoriginal films littering the Hollywood box office these days, it’s easy to forget what original filmmaking looks like. There certainly are some unique, creative films out there, but they can be few and far between and sometimes it’s best to explore international pictures for movies that aren’t of the comic book genre. This week it was off to France for The Blue Room, which tells the mysterious story of a married man (Julien) and father of one who has an affair with an old acquaintance of his (Esther). The affair is known right from the film’s beginning, and director Mathieu Amalric (who also plays the main character, Julien) intertwines scenes from a criminal investigation and scenes from Julien and Esther’s affair, as well as Julien’s relationship with his wife and daughter. It makes for an intriguing experience as the viewer is given an opportunity to discover both the details of how the affair developed and the investigation, which starts off rather vague before coming to light in the film’s closing scenes. It’s clear that Esther has developed an unhealthy obsession with Julien as the affair progresses, and her character becomes more and more mysterious. It’s a suspenseful build as the movie reaches its conclusion, and one that will keep most viewers intrigued. The Blue Room is well acted, particularly by its leads Amarlic and Stephanie Cleau. It’s also well directed and at a snappy 80 minutes of runtime, a quick watch that never feels like it drags. It’s a much better version of a movie like Swim Fan, but probably not quite as good as Fatal Attraction (although, full disclosure, I’ve never seen that Michael Douglas feature). It’s worth a look, but needless to say, it’s not one that you should throw on for family movie night. Adults only, boys and girls. The Blue Room is deserving of 8 mouse clicks out of 10.

Turning Back the Pages: 19th century rise and fall of Donald

- Turning Back the Pages By Colleen Palumbo

The Golden Museum is working on a new permanent exhibit called “Donald, B.C.: It’s Rise and Fall.” This covers the period of time from 1883 until approximately 1900 when the Canadian Pacific Railway had moved their divisional headquarters over to Revelstoke and many of the businesses and homes had gone either to Revelstoke or Golden and at least one went to Invermere. If you have any knowledge of Donald during that time period or photographs from any time in Donald’s history, I would be most appreciative if you would bring them by the museum. In the meantime here is a little bit about Donald, B.C. Returning to Golden from anywhere west I am always thrilled to see the old mill buildings at Donald. It sounds silly, maybe, but it means that home is just 20 minutes away. I

do remember Donald when people actually lived there and when the store, post office and school were still in operation, but it is really hard to imagine that it was ever a thriving community – but it was. In 1897 the neighbouring town of Donald was a vital railway town with a population that fluctuated between 4000 and 6000 people. It was situated on a beautiful terrace of land overlooking the Columbia River, on the spot then known as the First Cross of the Columbia. Among the many beautiful homes in Donald was the home of R.A. Kimpton, whose home had all the class and grace of the best homes anywhere. Donald was the terminal point for the Pacific and Western Divisions of the CPR and was also the site of the repeating station for the company’s telegraph department. Donald was also the headquarters for the Provincial Government’s offices for the East Kootenays. In the Government Office you would find the Gold Commissioner’s office. Supreme Court was held here, and life’s interesting events were recorded here, like births, deaths and marriages. One could also view a copy of the vot-

ers’ list here. As there were enough children to warrant it, there was a public school in Donald in 1897. The school trustees were the Messrs. Pitt, Nealon and Mack. Mr. Barron was the teacher at the public school. There were many children in Donald at the time who could not attend school as there was no room for them in the building. The school, built to accommodate 20 kids, was in need of enlargement to take in the 60 children who were of school age. Donald had two really well maintained stores – Manuel & Ruttan, and Kimpton & Pitts. Manuel and Ruttan were the pioneer merchants in the area, having come over the divide in 1883, along with the advance guard of the CPR construction, and went into the business of running a general store. The store of Kimpton and Pitts was set up by J.C. Steen in 1885 and was originally purchased by Kimpton who later took on the partner Pitts. You could choose to stay at one of the two hotels in Donald in 1887, the Forest House or Nelles House. Forest House was owned and run by Mr. Forest, and was the first hotel

A photo of R.A. Kimpton’s store in either Donald or Invermere. Anyone with any information about where this photo was taken is asked to contact either the Golden Museum or the Golden Star.  Photo courtesy of the Golden Museum in town. As the town grew so did the hotel until it contained three storeys, with a large bar, billiards, dining, commercial and sample room all in the ground floor, and 15 bedrooms on each of the second and third floors. Nelles House had just been taken over by two up and coming young business men from Revelstoke, McRae and Edwards. A large boarding house owned by George Sutherland finished off the accommodations. R.W. Patmore was the postmaster and also

ran a stationery, drug, tobacco and fancy goods store. Clubs and organizations included the only Masonic Lodge in the East Kootenays – Mountain Lodge, No. 11, and the Oddfellows Lodge – the Selkirks, No. 1,275. The Oddfellows had a fine hall which could be sublet by contacting Mr. Forrest. They also had a tennis club, a gun club, football and swimming clubs. The CPR had a modern station, with refreshment rooms, telegraph office, ice

Ask Dr. Erika: Help with dry, summer skin Q – I am very prone to dry skin and this hot, dry summer isn’t helping. I’m hesitant to apply any cosmetics to my skin that may contain chemicals and perfumes. Are there any natural approaches that may be helpful? A – The most obvious and important way to keep your skin hydrated is to keep your body hydrated. In hot, dry weather, your eight plus glasses of water a day becomes even more important. This is especially true during the summer when beverages of choice (beer, coolers, iced coffee, etc.) can further dry out our skin due to their diuretic effects. As our skin is made of cells and our cells are made of fat it only makes sense that the type of fats we eat affect the health of our skin. Fish oils are a great source of EPA (Ecosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid) which not only keep skin hydrated from the inside, but also decrease the redness and inflammation that is associated with many skin conditions. are naturally occurring chemicals in many foods. These phytochemicals remove tox- Dr. Erika Buckley-Strobel - ins,Antioxidants or oxidants, from our body and therefore prevent them from damaging our skin cells. Some of Ask Dr. Erika our favourite summer foods are great sources of antioxidants, such as dark berries, green tea (try it iced for a refreshing summer drink!), red beans (kidney and pinto), apples and plums. In order to combat dry skin we need to attack it from all angles, both internally and externally. However, many moisturizers on the market, including high-end, expensive brands, work against dry skin as they contain ingredients such as alcohol which sucks moisture from the skin. Some of the best moisturizers, proven for all types of skin, are simple non-clogging oils. These oils contain active ingredients which enter deep into the dermis to prevent damage and moisture loss to regenerate and protect skin in hot, dry environments. Argan, or Moroccan, oil is great in that it can be applied directly to the damp skin immediately after showering. One of my favourite natural products for year round skin care is Seven Cream, which is made of seven key skin healing ingredients; Manuka honey, Aloe vera gel, Calendula, Shea butter, coconut, avocado, neem and Manuka oils. It uses organic ingredients and it is made in B.C. too! Do you have any health questions for Dr. Erika? Email them to the editor ( and watch for an answer in an upcoming column.

Faith Column: Get Involved Not In Vain by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. For a long time, Bibles were not available for individual reading. Bibles were kept in the church where they could be read, heard and discerned in the context of the communities that gathered around them. We risk losing the full sense of the Gospel of Christ when we read in isolation. We risk losing the full scope of Jesus’ work when we feel that the saving and healing capacity of God is an individual endeavour. This has happened as our society has become more individualistic with the notion that if you work hard, live by the rules and are a good person, that God will hear your prayers and answer them. What gets lost in our look at healing from an individual perspective is the whole purpose of Jesus’ focus. In Jesus’ time, if you had an ailment ACROSS like leprosy, mentalCLUES or emotional chal1.

to be welcomed home. This is reiterated in the story about the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32). A young man leaves his father’s house and takes with him his inheritance; he squanders it all away and finds himself destitute and poor. He returns to his father’s house hoping to get a job as a farm hand only to be welcomed back fully by his father with wide open arms and celebrations. This is the image I have of God, the Parent whose loving arms wait for each of us, no matter how far we have strayed, and welcome us back to the community with great celebrations. This is the community we are called to build. I do not look to a God to heal my own individual hurts, illnesses and pain; I look instead to a God that desires us to reach out with Christ embodied within us to create expansive communities. Our individual prayers only go so far; our corporate and community participation take us all so much farther. This is how we should pray, this is where our actions should leap into the world; where we heal the broken, welcome the outcast, feed the hungry, clothe the naked and restore to community all who have been cast aside and left to struggle alone in hopelessness, pain, suffering 37. 20’s - 30’s art design and despair. 38. own Payment In my life,(abbr.)

Hang gliding competition continued: Continued from page 3 Flying days will take place from Jul. 25-Aug. 2 with only a pilot’s top three scores counting towards their final tally, which is based on total distance. With the high quality of the pilots on hand this year, Parkin expects numerous competitors to reach Canal Flats, a traditional end point of the valley for most, as landing sites are harder to find beyond that area. Locals may just have a chance to meet a competitor or two if they happen to be driving down Highway 95 during the competition. As one might imagine, it’s not uncommon for hang gliders and paragliders to land in remote areas, away from their intended destination. “Some of us end up down the road, looking for a way home and we may be hitchhiking either towards Donald or towards Canal Flats,” Parkin explained. Anyone who picks up a Muller participant will be entered into a “Thanks for the Ride” draw for gas and dinner gift certificates. “If anybody sees us on the road, we’re usually not hard to spot. We’ve got sweat in our brow and we’re carrying a big pack.”

In Loving Memory of

Michael Antonio Oddy November 7, 1992 – July 21, 2010 We think of you every single day, there are constant reminders of your presence. Although 5 years have past, it still seems as though it were yesterday, time still passes but somehow at the same time it has frozen. We miss you with every beat of our hearts. No amount of tears or time makes it easier not being able to touch you and see the amazing young man you would be today, but we brave on, never tapping out, knowing that one day we shall be reunited. Always in our hearts and loved forever. Dad, Geeg, Ash and Karsen.




GILBERT LESLIE COX April 9, 1941 – July 8, 2015

Gil Cox passed away at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary AB shortly after suffering a cardiac arrest in Golden, BC. He is survived by his second wife Geri Cox and his loving children, Heather (Aaron Rosensweet), Paul, and Guy (Ginette Purdy), his step daughters, Christine Lange (Glen Martins) and Susan (Allan Redekopp), and his grandchildren, Elliot, Gabriel, Miles and Brendan, and his step grandchildren Kurtis, Kaitlin, Brianna, and Kenzie. Gil is pre-deceased by his first wife Brenda Cox (nee Roosdahl). Gil’s life was filled with great stories and adventures. He was born in Halifax Nova Scotia to Marjorie White and Gilbert Cox and had three brothers, Owen, Ronald and Peter. He grew up in rural Nova Scotia – Lower Sackville and Lunenburg – and left school before graduating to join the RCMP, which provided an amazing collection of stories, from performing in the RCMP Musical Ride, to standing guard for Prime Ministers and the Queen. Gil had a varied RCMP career, starting with working in downtown Toronto at age 20, and then volunteering to work in Canada’s arctic in Fort Smith, NWT. After being posted to Yellowknife in 1965, he met his first wife, Brenda Joyce Roosdahl (1941-2000), a registered nurse. Together they had three children and lived in Yellowknife, Fort Rae (Rae Edzo), Haines Junction, Whitehorse, Frobisher Bay (Iqaluit), and lastly Lake Harbour (Kimmirut) on Baffin Island. Together Gil and Brenda lived the frontier life for the first eight (1965-1973) years of their marriage. When he came out of the North to continue working with the RCMP he began with the Dartmouth detachment (1973-74) for one year before being promoted to Sergeant in the undercover Customs and Excise division. This was at a time of great change in Canada and Gil’s team liaisoned with INTERPOL for the area of Boston-Montreal-Halifax. His stories include huge drug busts by boat and catching diamond smugglers. The fact that he never finished high school always bothered him. He had a big love of history and loved to talk about politics, the world and its current state of affairs. While working for the RCMP and Customs Canada, he studied history at Saint Mary’s University and graduated in 1988 with a Bachelor’s Degree in History. He retired from his 22 year career with the RCMP working in Amherst NS as the Sergeant in charge of the Cumberland County Division. He continued to work in the civil service with Canada Customs in Amherst and Parks Canada in Halifax until he and Brenda moved back North in 1990 to Yellowknife for the final stretch of working life prior to retirement in Golden BC in 1998. After Brenda died in 2000 he met his second wonderful wife Geri Lange who gave him a whole new life full of love, kindness, joy, family and friends in the Blaeberry Valley near Golden. Gil never viewed retirement as a reason to stop working, and continued to keep busy all his life. Much of his time was spent volunteering for the United Church in Golden by dedicating countless hours to their Bargain Basement, volunteering as a lay minister, helping with the church and the services. He did this all on top of maintaining a homestead in the mountains, chopping his own wood, shoveling snow, working in the garden and playing as many rounds of golf as he could squeeze in. He lived a life of adventure, travelling all over the world to visit his many friends and family in Canada, Europe and Brazil, and lastly spending many winters in Cuba at a resort in Varadero where he was well loved as a regular guest and friend. A service to celebrate the life of Gil Cox will be held August 12th at 1:00 pm at St. Andrews United Church, followed by a reception at the Seniors Centre. In memory of Gil donations can be made to Stars Air Ambulance Service: www.
