Bad year for mosquitoes in both Golden and Area A Book review looks at trip down the Columbia ................................11

Joel Tansey Bright sunny skies. Cool evening breezes. Long days. Swimming, golf, mountain biking, rafting and sunbathing by the lake. These are the things that everyone loves about summer. What no one loves are mosquitoes, and residents of Golden and Area have always had to deal with their fair share of the pesky bugs. If it seems like the mosquitoes have been worse this year than in the

past, that’s because they likely have been. The Columbia Shuswap Region District (CSRD), through its environmental consultants Morrow BioScience, conducts treatment and control for mosquitoes around Golden and Area A every year. This can be done through one of two separate, but ultimately similar procedures. The first is a simple operation done on the ground with a blower. The second is a wide scale operation that’s done by helicopter. Continued on Page 2

Canada votes on Oct. 19 Golden Dolphins move on to Victoria Golden Star Staff The 2015 Federal Election has officially been called, and Golden voters can head to the booths on October 19, making it the longest campaign period in Canada in 100 years. Golden, as part of the Kootenay Columbia riding will see four names on the ballot: incumbent David Wilks, Conservative (leader Stephen Harper), Wayne Stetski, NDP (leader Thomas Mulcair), Don Johnston, Liberal (leader Justin Trudeau), and Bill Green, Green Party (leader Elizabeth May). Prior to the election being called, a call went out to Wilks from opponent Stetski challenging him to debates in all the riding’s municipalities. No candidate forums have currently been scheduled. Federal party leaders squared off in their first TV debate Thursday, a mostly polite two-hour exchange of views on the economy, environment and military action overseas. Check back in the Golden Star in the coming months for coverage on local federal election issues.

Notice of Land Notice of Land Disposition Disposition What is proposed? The Town of Golden is selling 336m2 of its property on the northwestern corner of 5th Street South and Riverglen Drive to Donna Mendes-Frobb and Mark Frobb. The property is legally described as the western portion of Block A DL 16415 Kootenay District Except Part Included in Plan 18312 (PID: 008-217-378). The property was originally Crown granted to the Town by the Province for “park purpose” and therefore the Province will receive the $10,000 appraised market value. The Frobbs intend to amalgamate the small piece of surplus publicly owned land with their land at 509 - 5th Street South and as part of a two lot subdivision a walkway will be dedicated to provide connectivity with the Twin Rivers Apartments. It is felt this connectivity will have a higher park value, but the walkway will not be developed for ten years.

Jessica Schwitek The Golden Dolphins Swim Club has returned from their regional swim meet in Kamloops with some very impressive results. Nine of their individual competitors, and two relay teams have qualified to move onto the provincial competition in Victoria on Aug. 20-23. “It was a really great weekend for all our swimmers,” said coach Caprice Rosentreter. “We had a few surprises too, which was great.” Carter Thorne qualified in the 50 m breaststroke, and Emma Russel will be heading to Victoria to compete in the 100 m backstroke. It will be both swimmers’ first time competing individually at the provincial level. The two will be joined by teammates Zara Johnson, Josh Hiraoka, Hannah LaRoy, Hayley Plonka, Roxy Coatesworth, Quinn Morgan, Kaelan Malaka, as well

Quinn Morgan will be heading to Victoria for the provincial swim meet on Aug. 20-23 after qualifying at the regionals in Kamloops.(Photo from previous meet in Penticton).  Photo Submitted as relay competitors Elyssia McClean and Marika Sutter. Provincials will mark the end of the 2015 season for the Dolphins, so they’ll be working hard over the next few weeks so they can go out with a bang. Although coach Rosentreter says they’ll be careful not

to overwork them. “We’re going to continue focusing on technique,” she said. “But we’ll also be making sure they get a lot of rest before heading to Victoria.” Rosentreter and her fellow coach Hailey Kehler are thrilled with how the season has gone so far, and

couldn’t be more proud of their swimmers this year. “We’ve really enjoyed our time this year, and hopefully our great season will continue for a couple more weeks and in Victoria,” said Rosentreter. “We’re really looking forward to it.”

Boat accident victim from Golden was an eternal optimist

Golden native Kamber Lindenbach, above with her fiance Wayne Stretz. Both were killed last weekend in a boating accident on McGregor Lake in Alberta.  Photos Submitted Joel Tansey On the surface, it sounds like something out of a dream. A story meant for television, rather than reality. Golden native Kamber Lindenbach, a beautiful former fitness model who combined a winning smile with a determined attitude and a bright, positively infectious personality to earn everything she had in life was set to marry her soulmate, Wayne Stretz, whom she met at a gym. The private ceremony was to take place at the top of Mt. Assiniboine, with only the pilot and the marriage commissioner to accompany the pair on the helicopter trip to one of the Canadian Rockies’ most famous peaks. Only days away from

what would have surely been a magical wedding, Lindenbach’s remarkable story came to an end following a tragic boating accident last weekend on McGregor Lake near Vulcan, Alta. The accident also claimed the life of her soon-to-be husband. Truthfully, Lindebach’s life wasn’t perfect. Beneath all the smiles lay a series of events that might have knocked a lesser individual out cold. A serious car accident 12 years ago left her with severe injuries, some of which persisted for the rest of her life. Then, in 2011, her older brother Collan, with whom she shared an intense love of the Calgary Flames, died suddenly under tragic circumstances. How she maintained such a positive,

optimistic outlook throughout her 36 years is a bit puzzling to even her own mother, but she did so nonetheless, choosing positivity over bitterness and doing it with an enthusiasm that drew others towards her. “She just had a very strong will to conquer things…she didn’t let anything hold her back,” Irene Kohalyk, Lindenbach’s mother, recalled. While living in Calgary, Lindenbach had a roommate who also provided her with a great deal of inspiration. Kohalyk believes this friend played an important, inspiring role in her daughter’s life. “This girl was terminally sick…and lived with Kamber up until nearly the end so Kamber was somewhat of a caretaker. She just

learned to appreciate what she had in life from this girl,” Kohalyk said. Already very healthconscious, Lindenbach got even more serious about her fitness following her accident, leading to appearances in numerous fitness magazines and to a career as a personal trainer. She was always encouraging towards her clients, making this an ideal career path, and she ran a Facebook page called Kamber’s Fitness Girlz that has nearly 2,000 page likes. “She just loved to see people improving…She was known for being a hard-ass,” Kohalyk said with a smile. “But they loved her for it.” It often went beyond fitness with those she worked with, and Lindenbach was remarkable in the way that she developed friendships with the individuals that she coached. “They just felt free to talk to her. Everyone just felt at ease with her,” Kohalyk said. Among Lindenbach’s numerous close friends was local nurse Christine Svendsen. “She was a really good friend to everybody that she knew. She was very funny and smart…she made everybody feel important to her,” she said. Svendsen met Lindenbach in kindergarten and the two had been friends ever since, staying close

even after the latter moved to Calgary. After kindergarten, Svendsen and her family moved south to Invermere for a year, but that didn’t keep them from remaining close during her time away from Golden. “We were seven years old and she sent me letters and that kind of goes to show... She’s just always been a really good friend,” she said. Even with a busy schedule and such a large multitude of friendships, Lindenbach always found time for family, calling her mother at least once a week. When she was getting ready for her first marriage, Lindenbach made a point to invite her mom along to pick out her wedding dress. “She knows I’m absolutely clueless fashion-wise but she just wanted me to be part of it…this was her special time and she was thinking of me.” A small, private service will be held for Lindenbach and Stretz on Thursday,

Aug. 13, on what was to be their wedding day. Later that evening, a celebration of life will be held at

the Deerfoot Casino in Calgary. All of Kamber’s extended friends and family are encouraged to attend.

Rossland Slows Down The City of Rossland has done something rare in our motor vehicle centric world where many drivers think that faster is better. Effective on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 the speed on municipal streets has been lowered to 30 km/h. Hmm you say, that’s the same speed as a school zone. Well, not in Rossland, the speed there has been lowered too. It’s 15 km/h in pick up areas and 20 km/h elsewhere. Interesting! Reducing speeds on residential streets from 50 km/h to 30 km/h results in a significant reduction in injury and fatality when a vehicle collides with a pedestrian. Reducing speeds on residential streets results in a more livable neighbourhood. Everyone will be more likely to play, walk or bike because they feel less threatened by drivers. Do you have 30 seconds to spare? The city’s newsletter contrasts travel times on one of the streets before and after the change. It will cost drivers half a minute. It will be interesting to revisit this decision in a years time to see if the citizens of Rossland keep this as their residential speed and to ask ICBC about it’s effect on collision rates. If it turns out to be successful perhaps this is the example you can use to help convince your municipality to follow suit.

night. Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident contact them or Crimestoppers. Assault on Highway Police are continuing to investigate after receiving a report of an assault that occurred on August 4 between two drivers on the Trans-Canada Highway. “One of the drivers reported that he had confronted another driver about their driving when he was then assaulted by the driver and had his camera smashed,” said Cst. Lainchbury. Police are still looking to speak with all the parties involved to determine whether charges will be pursued in the matter. Stolen Kayaks On August 5, a local male attended the detachment to report that he had two of his kayaks stolen from his backyard in Parson. The kayaks are described as a Yellow ‘Ocean’ brand and a Grey ‘Hobie’ tandem with peddles. Anyone with information regarding this theft is asked to contact police or Crimestoppers. Vehicle Struck Barricade Two people from Invermere were treated for minor injuries after a collision on Highway 1 near Rogers Pass on August 5. Police and BC Ambulance were dispatched to the collision in which it was reported that a vehicle had struck a barricade. Witnesses stated that the eastbound vehicle had lost control crossing the center and struck a barricade. Both occupants of the vehicle were transported to the Golden Hospital for assessment and were later released. Slashed Tires Police were called to a business on 9th Street North on August 6 after staff reported that the tires on two pickups and one trailer had been slashed overnight.

“The tires appear to have been cut using a small blade,” said Cst. Lainchbury, who also noted that one of the vehicles was keyed. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact local police or Crimestoppers. Vehicle in the Ditch On August 7, police responded to a report of a vehicle in the ditch on Golden Donald Upper Road. A single vehicle had gone off the road overnight. Arrangements were made to have the vehicle removed from the ditch by the owner. No injuries were reported by either occupant of the vehicle. Town Property Stolen Police are investigating after a report was received that parts of the electrical system at one of the Town’s water lift stations had been stolen. Police were advised on August 7 that Town staff noticed that wires had been snipped and parts removed. An electrician was required to repair and replace the components with an estimated damage cost of $1500.00. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact police or Crimestoppers. Drunk Driver Parked on Overpass A 64 year-old male from Alberta spent the night in police custody on August 7 after police received a 911 call from a passerby on the Golden Upper Donald - Highway 1 overpass. Police attended and located a vehicle with extensive damage parked in the middle of the overpass and a heavily intoxicated male, believed to be the driver, sitting with one of the complainants. Police were unable to identify the male as the driver and given his level of intoxication, were not able to leave the male unattended. The vehicle was towed and attempts were made to match the damage to the vehicle

with reported collisions in the province however nothing was found by police. Parson Break&Enter Police are again asking anyone with information regarding a break in that occurred at a residence in Parson last winter contact them or Crimestoppers. “Several items including antiques with extreme sentimental value were stolen in the break in,” said Cst. Lainchbury. A reward leading to the arrest of those responsible may be offered by the owner and/or Crimestoppers. Egging Vehicles The Golden-Field RCMP were called on August 8 for another report of vehicles being egged, this time on Quartz Crescent. “We believe that the parties responsible for this may also be responsible for a similar incident reported earlier in the week,” said Cst. Lainchbury. Police are currently looking to speak to suspects in the incidents but are asking anyone with information regarding these events contact them or Crimestoppers. Resident Attacks Vehicle Police received a report of mischief on August 8 after a male alleged that he pulled into a driveway on Highway 1 west of Golden to turn around only to have someone from the residence come out and start hitting his rental vehicle. As a result of the hits small dents to the vehicle were reported. Police are continuing to investigate the matter to determine whether charges will be pursued. Hiker Needed Medical Assistance Police were called to activate Golden and District Search & Rescue (GADSAR) on August 8 after a call was received that a 53 yearold female who was hiking in the area required medical attention. The female was transported

by helicopter to Golden Hospital for treatment. Hit and Run The Golden-Field RCMP are investigating a report of a hit and run on August 8. The complainant advised that he watched a vehicle travelling near 12th Street North and the Highway 1 Frontage Road hit another vehicle and then drive off. Police are looking to follow up with the parties involved to obtain further information. Traffic Services Police with the Golden RCMP Traffic Services Unit impounded two vehicles on B.C. Day after it’s alleged that the drivers were speeding excessively by the weigh scales in Donald. Both drivers were from Alberta, with one being issued a Violation Ticket for travelling at 163km/h in a 100km/h zone and the other issued a ticket for driving 153km/h, at the same location. The two vehicles were then impounded for 7 days under the Motor Vehicle Act. Traffic members also seized a small amount of marijuana after stopping a vehicle for speeding near the Donald weigh scales on August 3. The driver was issued a Violation Ticket for speeding and having his windows tinted. No charges are expected in relation to the marijuana. Police and BC Ambulance attended a collision on Highway 1 near the snow sheds near Rogers Pass on August 6 after receiving a report of a single vehicle rollover. All three occupants of the vehicle including the 18 year-old driver from Vancouver were assessed for injuries. Police believe that the driver failed to negotiate a curve in the road causing the vehicle to go off the road and roll. Speed is also believed to be a contributing factor in the collision.

Rocket Trips to the Moon? You May Live to See Them! Scientists See Possibility August 5, 1948 Rocket trips to the moon within the lifetime of some of those who read this? That is the striking prediction of some scientific thinkers - not fantasy fiction writers - who now believe it is a definite probability. A lot of other Canadians who may become convinced that there is such a possibility after they view a spectacular travelling science exhibit which is starting on a swing around the country from the Museum of Natural History in New York City. It is the memorial exhibit of the work of the late Dr. Robert H. Goddard, pioneer rocket authority. His discoveries were cribbed by the Germans who during World WarII startled the world with the V-2 rocket.

Fire Hazard Still Extreme August 8, 1973 No woods travel other than industry was declared by the B.C. Forest Service in Golden on Thursday. Due to the extreme fire hazard there can be no hiking, berry picking, hunting, stream fishing or prospecting. There is a special patrol of eight men checking the woods for campers and unofficial forest users. Ranger Sigmund Anderson of Golden reported eight fires in the Big Bend area, the biggest one being at Lylle Creek. In total, there were 87 men working on the blazes. Monday’s rain offered temporary relief but failed to drop the hazard. Two aircraft are patrolling the area every day. All fires were serviced by four helicopters as well as four water bombers and a bird dog guide plane. Activity is concentrated in the area of Sullivan and Bush Rivers.

Dental Situation Looking Better -October 17. 1973 A promising letter came to Council from the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. Dr. S.G. Marin of Banff has applied for a license to practice dentistry in B.C., with the intention of locating in Golden about the end of this year. Council plans to arrange a meeting with Dr. Marin upon his return from meetings in Vancouver. They will also approach Dr. Reece in Invermere to see whether or not he is considering returning to Golden. A letter was also received from five mothers encouraging Council to give prompt attention to the dental problem. The letter reads: “We… are not at all satisfied that the dentist’s excuse of “health reasons” is the only cause of his practice being closed for unpredictable and lengthy periods of time. “In our opinion this is no way to operate a dental practice and he should be asked to close his business unless he can guarantee service on a regular basis. “Perhaps then another dentist would be more willing to locate here.” Council moved to reply to the letter stating that they are actively working on getting an additional dentist in Golden.

Golden Weddings: Sime-Barber January 15, 1948 St. Paul's Anglican Church, Golden, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Monday morning, January 5th, at 11 o'clock, when Rev. W.J.J. Woods united in marriage Vera Mary, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. Barber, and James A., eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Sime. To the strains of the Bridal Chorus from "Lohengrin" by Wagner, the bride who was given in marriage by her father, looked charming in a white jersey floor length dress. Her veil of embroidered net was held in place by a coronet of orange blossoms, and she wore a pearl necklace, the gift of the groom. Pink roses formed the bridal bouquet.

Canada Votes


Wednesday, August 12, 2015 The Golden Star

Federal Election Editor,

The election bomb has officially dropped. Last weekend the prime minister visited Governor General David Johnston at Rideau Hall to dissolve Parliament and begin the election set for Oct. 19. This will make it the longest election period - I SURMISE in Canada in the last By Jessica Schwitek 100 years, so we’re all going to be subjected to a more drawn out campaign. This is my first federal election working for a newspaper, and I’m anxious to see how it compares to provincial and municipal elections. After a couple very heated local elections, I’m expecting this one to be a bit more mellow, but I may be proven wrong. Our current governing party has turned out to be quite polarizing, so who knows, maybe the race will get ugly. Regardless of the end result, my hope and prediction for this election is a higher voter turnout. Stephen Harper has angered a lot of people, and I’m optimistic that the people complaining will show up to the voting booths this time around. For those of you out there who haven’t necessarily been complaining, and feel like you don’t know the issues, I’d like to make a recommendation. I have recently found a very interesting quiz online that helps voters understand where they stand on certain issues, and which political parties they tend to agree or disagree with. After answering a few dozen questions on social, economic, education, health care, and environmental issues, among many others, the results will show you what percentage of policies you agree with for a given party. For example, you may agree with 75 per cent of the Conservatives’ policies, and only 59 per cent of the Liberals’ policies. It also breaks down what areas you agree with for a given party, and which ones you disagree with. I’m not saying this tool should be the sole factor in deciding who you should vote for this fall. But if you feel unfamiliar with federal issues, or politics in general, it’s a great way to delve into the topic, see where you stand on certain policies, and see where the different federal parties stand on those same policies. Of course throughout the painfully long campaign period we’ll be able to hear where our local candidates stand on issues that affect Golden (ie. the Trans Canada Highway). But having a basic understanding of the national issues will only make your voting decision easier. You can find the 2015 election quiz at:

Harper’s “Strengths”? - Not so Much "On the economy"? Any student of Economics should tell you - it's not rocket science - that bringing back the home reno tax credit in a couple of years, once the economy has improved and tax revenues are increasing, will (a) be too late for any stimulus during the downturn, (b) add to inflationary pressures during the upturn, and (c) only help a few people, but not the people who need it the most. So not any real economic benefit, just pure politics, like the multitude of Harper's boutique tax cuts and election-time funding for local projects being splashed around. But what else can you expect from someone who single-mindedly cuts the budget during a "downturn"? "On Security"? The deadly attacks in Canada have been carried out by lone wolf, mentally unbalanced guys, with a bone to pick with the government for joining in the U.S. led attacks in foreign countries. To combat that, Harper brought in legislation - and now promises additional measures - to massively beef up the appearance of security, but which will have very doubtful effectiveness. (Maybe more trials for other pitiful mental health cases like the BC couple entrapped by the RCMP?) So, pure politics, not so much for Canadians' safety. But what else can you expect from a politician with an election to fight and not much else to run on?? "Steady hand on the tiller"? More like set in concrete, policies singularly designed to appeal to his base, so seem crafted purely for fundraising, especially since they repeatedly fail the test of being legal. This is not good governance for all Canadians, so this is not a good kind of "steadiness"! But what else can you expect from someone who governs from ideology, not from the facts, and who repeatedly replaces facts with spin??? So, four more years of Harperland, where handing out baubles is good but dealing with recession is not, spying on all of us is essential, and only 30% of the population are counted as "real Canadians"? Or???? Alternatives to the Harper Government? If you prefer to vote conservative, what a pity there isn't a Progressive Conservative - remember them? - to consider. One could wish conservatives would just take back their party. But for now, keep in mind that the NDP proved to be good stewards of the economy in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as have the Liberals federally. And if you also long for a return to Government of Canada days, I really believe it would come true under both the Liberals and the NDP. (Voting Green is voting for principles, not for a government - sorry folks, just a fact.) Harper has given us time to consider the alternatives in this long, expensive election, time to make a reasoned choice. In the words of Brian Mulroney, we do have options.

“No, I think they’re normal.”

“No. I actually think they’re pretty good this year.”

“Yes, I’ve heard that from a lot of people in the area. I think they are worse than most years.”

Stars to our RCMP for trying so hard to keep our highways safe in this horrific traffic. Good job.

Access to Care Dear Golden Community, The Age Friendly Community Plan (AFCP) process in 2014 sparked serious discussions on Golden's AFCP #1 priority, “Community Support and Health Services.” Several members of the community have expressed publicly and online their frustrations with trying to access care in a timely fashion. The May 20, 2015 Age Friendly Community Committee (AFCC) Golden meeting resulted in the creation of the “Access to Care” committee, consisting of residents, physicians and politicians who have studied the problem, outlined broad principles and identified potential solutions. The problems stem from a number of factors including: • No agreed upon protocols for transfer of patients with a given condition. Each case has to be negotiated with Patient Transfer Network and receiving centers, therefore causing delays. • Alberta is refusing to accept local patients, even visiting Alberta residents. • Patients must frequently travel to Kelowna, Kamloops and even Vancouver. • There is pressure to transfer patients out of acute care and into their community where locally, services are limited. The Age Friendly Community Committee feels elderly residents benefit from staying in their community as long as possible. To do so, all of their needs, including access to medical care must be as readily accessible as possible. When responding to the Ministry’s Health Policy Paper on Rural Health Services, Doctors of BC stated they “would advise against a standardized approach to implementation of these types of practices in favour of a flexible, incentivized approach.“ The Committee feels this is particularly relevant to Golden. In fact, the “Access to Care” committee believes that Golden is an anomaly in BC healthcare for the follow-

ing reasons: • Our Regional referral centre, Cranbrook, has limited capacity • The closest full service care centre, Calgary is in another Province. • Many Golden residents work or have family in Alberta. • Golden is frequently isolated due to weather or road closures. During those times, transfers out are frequently not possible. Some of the solutions considered by the committee include: • Increased services at the local level within the constraints of what is deliverable. For example, consistent availability of ultrasound and laboratory services. • Improved local support programs for patients that are required to travel. There are financial needs but one must also consider assistance in navigating access to the many available programs. • Establish agreed upon referral protocols to the nearest suitable facility to expedite transfers and referrals. This should include access to services in Calgary. Continued health promotion through municipal government activities, education and service clubs • Determine what services we should be providing locally based on the needs of the population and what is safe to provide. These issues affect every citizen of Golden. Achieving solutions will require the efforts of the entire community and all health care providers. We hope and trust that Golden’s residents and organizations will collectively and collaboratively lend their voice to push for improvements to health care access for older adults. Signed, AFCC Golden - Access to Care Committee Contact: Ryan Watmough, Coordinator

Stingers for those

Stingers to people who lack patience. It’s a fine virtue to have, you should try and learn some.

Enjoy flavours of summer Cindy Bossio Community Nutritionist with Interior Health Are you heading to the beach for the day, camping for the weekend or having the neighbours over for a barbeque? Grab some local seasonal produce to enjoy along with your summertime fun! There are so many great reasons to eat locally grown foods, but my favorite, by far, is the flavour. Produce fresh from your garden, a farm stand, or a farmer’s market is picked at the peak of ripeness and is brimming with flavours that make summertime so special. It’s a bonus that local foods are better for the environment, keep our hard earned money in the community, and are more nutritious than foods that come from afar.  For me, summer is a time for: · Fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and a mint leaf  bobbing in a tall glass of sparkling water, sipped by the lake.  · A colorful parfait layered with yogurt, whole grain cereal, and freshly picked huckleberries enjoyed while sitting on the patio.   · A big leafy green salad loaded with spinach, kale, tomatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, and shredded beets carried next door and paired with the entrée on your neighbour’s grill. · Crunchy ears of corn with fresh dill from a food truck, bright red juicy cherries from the Farmers’ Market. · Tomatoes and herbs from a Community Garden tossed on a whole-wheat pizza and cooked in an outdoor oven. · A homemade fresh fruit Popsicle enjoyed by a child after an afternoon of running through the sprinkler. · Watermelon sliced and slurped while sitting at a picnic table surrounded by trees. · Celery stalks dipped into fresh salsa made with tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, chili peppers, onions, and passed around the campfire. · Colorful sweet peppers, zucchini, cauliflower, and eggplant, slowly roasted on the barbeque. · The smell of muffins baked in the oven on a cool late summer evening, made from zucchini picked from the garden.

The early days of Golden businesses The following story was written by Thomas King about the early businesses to develop in Golden. It’s very interesting to me to see the educated people who chose to come here. While this only begins to touch on some of the early businesses, it does give an overview of the time. “Until survey parties, later the C.P.R. mainline construction crews came through, there was no attempt made to settle here. With the advent of workmen, Mr. Baptiste Morigeau, who was born in 1846, of a French voyager and his Indian wife, started a trading post about 1883 and did business for two years. A Mr. Lang opened a store in 1884, which was a log cabin built on - Turning Back the Pages - the ground where the present Feuz block now stands. He had a son and three daughters, the youngest of whom is well known to many By Colleen Palumbo Goldenites. She built the Feuz block about in 1911 and owned the property where the present Post Office was built. Right up until her death at the age of 92 years she maintained a genuine interest in Golden. When Mr. Lang failed in business, the late H.S. Forster put up the money to continue the business under the management of G.B. McDermot. In 1886, Charles Warren and a partner by the name of Durrick, started a general store in a building situated on the site of the Big Bend Hotel. Soon after, Mr. Durrick retired from business and went into partnership with a Mr. William Carlin, who had an old established business at Ft. Steele, as Carlin and Durrick. After Mr. McDermot withdrew from the store business, the owners formed a company called The Golden and East Kootenay Trading Company. In 1903-04 this company had almost finished the building of a new store on the present post office site, which was of tremendous proportions for the amount of business here in those early days. It was one hundred and ten feet long and forty-five feet wide, with three floors and a basement. Before it was finished, it burned to the ground on May 4th of 1904. This fire also ignited a warehouse belonging to Mr. Warren. This resulted in a heavy loss. Mr. Warren was then financed by Mr. Forster to build the present store occupied by Barlow’s Department Store. This store was ready for occupancy on November 4th, 1904. The stocks of the two businesses were combined. This business was operated under Mr. Warren followed by Mr. T. King. In October 1957, Mr. Fred Barlow took over. Mr. Mike Carlin and Mr. Joseph Lake had been early settlers in the west. Mr. Carlin, a very big man, had tie contracts from the C.P.R. during construction days. Mr. Lake had gone from Winnipeg to Edmonton in a Red River cart before there was a railway connection. They built a store at Field, and in 1891, they built one in Golden, known as the “Big Store.” It was rightly named for supplying so sparse a settlement and retail liquor business. This store was kept in the basement of the store. This immense building also housed living rooms upstairs. Here, too, was a large hall (the first concert hall, which was used for dances and Lodge rooms). The Oddfellows and Masons both used it for their meetings, the latter after the desolation of Donald. In the year 1899, the Charter for this Lodge being Mountain Lodge No. 11, A.F. and A.M. was transferred to Golden.  Continued on page 11

Golden Moments: Steinhauer reflects on coaching the Rockets

Don Steinhauer, who moved to Golden in the late 60s, was named the head coach of the Golden Rockets for their first season in 1991.  Joel Tansey/Star Photo Joel Tansey When the Golden Rockets were founded in 1991, the first thing they needed was a head coach. Don Steinhauer, having coached minor hockey for several years prior, had earned his level three coaching certification through Hockey Canada. At the time, level three was the minimum requirement for coaching junior hockey, leaving Steinhauer as the natural candidate to lead the Rockets

into their first season. “I had to go start doing some scouting and recruiting… which I didn’t know anything about,” Steinhauer recalled. Sixty-five kids attended the Rockets’ first tryout camp that year and that led to what Steinhauer calls the most difficult part of his time as head coach. “The hardest thing there is to do is cut a kid because you’re killing a dream. A kid comes here and wants to take that next step and then to have to tell him that he’s not going to make it, it is a tough thing to do.”

There were six local boys on the inaugural edition of the Rockets, many of whom Steinhauer had coached at previous levels, and the Golden team achieved a measure of success in their first season, finishing third in their division before falling in a deciding game 7 against the Columbia Valley Rockies in round one of the playoffs. “The arena was packed, we had great support from the fans,” Steinhauer said. Steinhauer was relieved of his duties the following season. “As things go in junior hockey,” he chuckled. While his tenure was brief, he says he “was proud to be a part of it.” Coaching was always a joy for Steinhauer, a Foresburg, Alta. native who moved to Golden in 1968 and started working at the mill in 1970, where he spent the majority of his career. “(I enjoyed) being with the kids, playing the game that you love and teaching kids…it’s all about teaching life skills as well. How to get along, how to accept disappointment, how to be a good winner…we had a lot of fun,” he said. Having never had kids of his own, Steinhauer was able to coach his teams without any hint of personal bias as well, which isn’t always the case when parents take on a coaching role with teams that include their own son or daughter. His coaching career came full circle in 2012 when Steinhauer and a team of Golden hockey players went on a trip to Europe to play against local teams overseas. “I was the oldest guy on the team and Chance L’Heureux was the youngest guy on the team. I coached him when he was in PeeWee so that was kind of neat,” Steinhauer said. Nowadays, when Steinhauer isn’t skiing, golfing, fishing or riding his motorcycle, he can often be found at the Golden Arena, where he makes a point to attend several Rockets games every season. “I enjoy the fast pace of the game, the kids play a good brand of hockey…a lot of these kids have been going to hockey schools most of their life. It’s amazing skills that these kids have got,” he said.

The Net Result: In Time offers unique plot but thin characters Joel Tansey It’s slim pickings for new content over the summer on Netflix, so for this one we go back to an older Netflix release, In Time, a film that offers an especially unique storyline. The highlight of the entire film is its basic concept. In a dystopian future, time has become the new currency. Once you reach 25 years of age, you have just a single year to live, unless you acquire more time. Individuals in the slums live day to day. Often waking up in the morning with less than 24 hours before they die, they’ll labour in factories in order to acquire another dose of time. The rich don’t have to worry quite so much. Often they’ll have a century, even a millennium of time. Aging also ceases once you hit 25, and the rich can live forever

barring a major car accident or a murder. Dying of natural causes is impossible, provided you have the time. It’s a very neat concept that is in the same conversation with movies like the Matrix and Minority Report as far as sci-fi creativity goes. The story centres around Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) who inherits “a century” from a rich man who donates him the time before committing suicide. With his new found “cash,” Salas ventures into upper-class society and befriends Sylvia Weis (Amanda Seyfried), the daughter of the richest man in the world. The two begin a sort of revolution, while trying their best to avoid the ruthless timekeeper, Raymond (Cillian Muprhy). In Time is fast paced, adventurous and creative. Its very concept builds a lot of suspense and that’s where the real strength of the movie lies.

Justin Timberlake stars alongside Amanda Seyfried in the 2011 film In Time. A unique concept drives the film despite some weak character development. Regency Enterprises Its characters are somewhat pedestrian, there isn’t a whole lot of depth or profoundness to any of them. But this isn’t a characterdriven movie, it’s a concept film

that is bound to keep most of its audience’s attention. Far from perfect, In Time is nevertheless an enjoyable popcorn flick that was made for sum-

mer viewing. It’s deserving of 8 mouse clicks out of 10.

Cover to Cover: Non-fiction book follows canoe trip through valley Joel Tansey Summer journeys typically involve a beat up VW bus, a pile of junk food and miles upon miles of open road. For Robin Cody, however, it was more like a rickety canoe, freeze-dried granola pouches and a 2,000 km paddle down the Columbia River. His trip spawned his first person account, Voyage of a Summer Sun, a 1990 publication that feels like it could have been written now, its stories and characters coming to life throughout the journey. Beginning in Canal Flats, Cody takes the reader through the lengthy journey from start to finish, mixing in a bit of history here and there and sprinkling in the stories of locals and fellow travellers. There are some harrowing aspects of the mostly mild Columbia. Just north of Golden lies the daunting Redgrave Canyon, a narrowing of the river that creates waves that are more or less impassable for canoeists. As a consequence, Cody enlists the help of local Wayne Houlbrook, who helps him through the canyon on a 12 foot aluminium dingy. It wasn’t quite what Cody had in mind, but was certainly better than walking it. From there it’s a long slog around the Big Bend, across the expansive Kinbasket Lake and its whipping winds. In

order to avoid the very real potential of running into a powerful wind gust coming out of one of Kinbasket’s many arms, Cody takes the long way around, dipping into each arm and crossing only when the other side of the shore was mere metres away. His journey on Kinbasket also dispels an old wives tale that I’d never heard before. Because the dam-filled lake wasn’t logged before it was created, the legend goes that at any moment, one of the thousands of trees that still lay at the lake bottom could release from their roots and torpedo to the surface, destroying any unsuspecting boats that might be above it. An interesting thought, but very likely to lie in the world of fantasy rather than fact, as Cody explains later in the book. Like the journey on the Columbia itself, there are some moments where Voyage of a Summer Sun feels like a bit of a task, rather than a joy. It’s a long trip, and some stories are more interesting than others. Still, it’s a detailed, descriptive and mostly interesting account of what must be one of the world’s great flat water journeys, from the quiet Columbia Lake all the way to the roaring shores of the Pacific Ocean. Voyage of a Summer Sun is available at Bacchus Books and Robin Cody’s book chronicles a trip down Cafe. the Columbia.  Oregon State Press

Not having a will means the state takes control Kevin Press Hearing that you ought to update your will is little bit like being told to take up jogging. Everybody knows it’s the right thing to do, but that doesn’t make it any easier to get started. What happens if you do nothing? If you die without a will, it’s called dying intestate. The provincial Public Trustee’s Office will try to protect the financial aspect of your estate by essentially taking over responsibility for your affairs to the point of probate. Probate means that everything is properly done and taken into account in terms of paying off the creditors, etc. If there are children, the office assumes the role of guardian. Essentially, the state takes over and performs the role that would have been performed at a basic level if

you had had your ducks in a row (i.e., power of attorney, will and a living will or healthcare proxy). Under the legislation of each province, where that money goes is all done by formula. What constitutes a will? In each province, they have legislation that sets out what constitutes a valid will. It has to be in writing. It has to clearly set out who you are. It has to clearly set out who you want to give your money to. Any vagueness or ambiguity can create a problem. It has to be clear who it is you’re giving the money to and how to contact that person. It also has to be signed by the person in the presence of two other people who are not in the will. A lawyer is not required but it would be highly imprudent if you didn’t have a lawyer. I’d say 95%, if not 99%, of do-it-yourself wills have something intrinsically defective about them. For

all sorts of reasons, do-it-yourself wills tend to be worthless. How often should a will be updated? You should reflect on what changes in your life occur every year at any given time: could be on your birthday. Did anything change? And then act accordingly. It could be that tax laws have changed. Maybe people you had in your will have predeceased you or you’ve had a falling-out with someone and you don’t want to include them in your will. Whenever any major event happens in your life — illness or divorce, marital separation, whatever it may be — that’s an automatic trigger to revamp your will. All of these life events should trigger somebody to say I need to speak to a lawyer who does will and estate law. This financial column has been sponsored by Shannon Hood, Sun Life Financial.

Queen’s Hotel opened in Golden in 1884 

Continued from page 8

The Mercantile Store was begun by Rolston and Mitchell in 1912, but the latter entered the ministry two years later. Mr. D.R. Rolston continued alone until his death. His son, Robert, carried on the business until he became interested in the motel business. It was purchased by Tony Ingstrup. The Golden Meat Market Business was started in the ‘80s by W.R. Hull and Company of Calgary. Its original site was what is now CPR land almost opposite Barlow’s Store. About 1893, W.R. Hull and Company purchased the site where George Keenleyside operated his butcher shop. About 1948, he added groceries and vegetables to make it a read food store. Mr. J.C. Greene started the Queen’s Hotel in 1884. He had a picture hanging in the hotel. This was entitled, “The Evolution of the Queen’s Hotel,” illustrating it from its meager beginning to its then large proportions. At the time, it was one of the finest in the country. It had the name of being (early in the century) the only country interior hotel that had five bedrooms with bath attached. In fact, it had not been long before that, that a guest at a local hostelry asked for the hotel restroom. He was directed to a “log out back.” Soon, a bullet whizzed passed him, and, looking up to see why, it is reported he was told to go to the other end of the log, as he was on the ladies’ section. How true this may be, I leave it to the reader to guess.”

Wednesday, August 12, 2015 The Golden Star

Golden Faith Column: One Penny or Two? Can you imagine being known through history as the widow who gave two pennies to church? Today, I suppose we’d say “she gave her last dime.” (Must be inflation.) We’ve certainly gotten mileage out of that “poor” woman’s offering, and it’s usually a sermon about money. Some years ago, as I came out of a hospital room where a lady was dying of lung cancer, someone said, “Poor dear.” To which her daughter replied, “Don’t say that. She’s no poor dear. She knows more about life than you or I will know for some time.” Why is it we pity the very folks who could teach us so much if we’d just pay attention? - Ron Tabbert Jesus alerts his disciples: Look…this ‘poor’ widow put more in the offering box Pastor Emeritus than all the others. For the others gave out of their wealth, but she out of her poverty, put in everything – all she had to live on. (Mark 12:42) The Greek word here says she was “needy.” She may have begged from others in her church at one time. How humiliating. Remember, single women in that culture– widowed, divorced or otherwise – had little support to rely on. God forbid we or our children should ever have to beg to live. Pity the blind beggar who lives off the pennies of others. Or should we rather pity the poor rich man: “I earned every penny I ever got. I’ve paid for everything I have.” I always wonder where he sends his cheque for fresh air, a 24-hour day, and the eyes blind Bartimaeus begged for. What do you give a man who has everything, including air, eyesight, middle age, even old age? The widow gave more than her two pennies. She gave us all something. She knew how to receive, how to be empty before God. And before her neighbours. She knew how to depend…like a little child…on someone else, even for the basics of life. If we can stand before God empty (-handed) with no claim to rights (how humiliating!)…like a child… we can receive many things. Even eternal life. For Jesus, too, gave all he had. The widow’s mite is not a story about giving. It’s a story about receiving. The widow remembered her Lord, and her gift is one of gratitude and loneliness to One who cared. To the Lord, her only partner. It was also a gift of adventure, of faith. Thank you, Lord. I love you. See me through, take care of me. It’s a story of devotion. She could have given one penny. Who would have blamed her? But as the late Dr. Paul Scherer wrote: Love is a spendthrift, leaves its arithmetic at home, is always in the red. CLUES ACROSS

BCDaily Obituaries

was born in Gusakovec, Croatia on September 24, 1930. He was the 13th child and last child born to his parents, Mijo and Dragica. He passed away on July 30, 2015 at the Penticton Hospital from a sudden and unexpected heart attack. He was happy, healthy and very active to his last day enjoying the outdoors and his retired lifestyle. He was born in a small town in Croatia that was vibrant with farms and vineyards. He grew up around horses and enjoyed animals and farm life. He learned to be very hard working from his father. When he was of age he went to fulfill his duty in the army in Croatia. He was part of the army that was supposed to be on cross country skis but it never snowed that year. After he finished his military term he crossed the border into Austria with a few friends in . He worked in Austria for a few years and then he heard about the opening to leave for Canada. Out of 13 siblings he was the only one to leave Croatia and go to Canada to seek employment and adventure. He left by boat on a very long trip and it was then that he realized how sea-sick he could get. To his last day he really never liked to ride in a boat. Once in Vancouver, the immigration office sent him to Parson BC to work in a mill. He came to Canada on August 8, 1958 and although knowing none of the English language and only with a half empty suitcase he found work in Parson BC at the mill for two years and then after 2 years he got a job at the Evans Plywood Plant in Golden BC. He worked for two weeks at both places double shifts until he decided that he wanted to work in Golden at the plywood plant and he continued to work there until his proud and respectful retirement in 1995 at age 65. It was there in Golden that he met his wife Fanika. She was working in what was called the mercantile store. They dated for a year and got married on December 31, 1966 and would have been married 50 years next year. Dad worked hard his whole life and took all of his vacation during his working years in the summer. They had vacationed in Penticton many summers and they decided to buy a retirement home here where they have lived for the past 20 years. He always maintained his devotion to his family in Croatia, he was a member of the Okanagan Croatian Club. He was a proud Croatian Canadian and always stayed true to his roots, making sure to reflect the same pride onto his two daughters. His greatest pride was his family and he was a good teacher, he gave good advice and although he was stern, he was always very loving too.. His passion of gardening, growing fruit tress and breeding European Goldfinches and canaries grew during his retirement. He enjoyed playing Bocce, doing things in his yard, making wine, travelling to Croatia, travelling to tropical places like Hawaii and meeting his friends for coffee. He was a wonderful husband and devoted father. He is survived by his wife of 49 years Fanika and his daughters; Katherine (Randy) and Mary (Matt). Zdravko will be sadly missed by his family and many friends. The funeral date in Penticton to be announced.

BEUERLEIN, Frank Francis “Frank” Beuerlein passed away peacefully at North Okanagan Hospice on August 2nd, 2015 at the age of 90. Frank was born in Unity, Saskatchewan and raised in Spruce Grove and Calgary, Alberta.  While living in Calgary, he met his future wife, Louise.  They were married in 1953 – a union they shared for fifty-seven happy years.  During his younger years, Frank was employed as a salesman for Canada Packers.  In time, scenic Yoho National Park beckoned Frank and Louise to relocate to the beautiful mountain town of Field, B.C.  This was where they raised their family while Frank was employed for twenty-five years with Canada Parks. Louise and Frank also owned and operated a small grocery store, “Beuerlein’s Grocery” in Field.  In 1984, Frank and Louise moved to Vernon, enjoying their retirement years in the sunny Okanagan. Frank is survived by his loving family: son, Brian (Lynn) Beuerlein of Delta, B.C.; three daughters: Leslie Ann (Larry) Clark of Prince George, B.C.,  Elizabeth Beuerlein of Vernon, B.C., and Roberta (Lonny Ellwyn) Beuerlein of Langley, B.C.; seven grandchildren: Alexandra, Brendan, Brittany, David, Kelsey, Kristine, and Scott; brother-inlaw, George (Jackie) Shepherd; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.  Frank was predeceased by his loving wife, Etta “Louise” in 2010; brother, Walter; and sister, Betty Storm. The funeral service was held in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Interment followed in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.  Following the committal, family and friends gathered in the Pleasant Valley Tea Room for a reception. Donations in memory of Frank may be made to North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506-27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4. The family extends sincere thanks to Dr. C. Cunningham and to the staff of Hospice for the excellent care Dad received. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, Phone: 250 542 4333. Condolences may be offered at
