The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has just published its B.C. Municipal Spending Watch report for 2000-2009 and Castlegar is among the top performers in the province.

“We fared very well,” said councillor Kevin Chernoff. “Provincially we’ve done very well. The higher the number is the more fiscally responsible you were. They take your population growth versus spending growth. As a city grows - is the municipality in line

with what they’re asking taxpayers to pay.” In the overall provincial ranking, Castlegar finished 128th out of 153 cities in B.C. The rankings are judged backwards with one being the worst. Nelson placed 39th, Trail 51st, and Grand Forks 60th

worst. Castlegar saw it’s population grow 10 per cent in 20002009. Real operating spending growth was 21 per cent; per capita spending growth was 10 per cent; and provincial rank for municipalities of 5,000-9,999 was 133. That puts Castlegar third among similar

sized cities in spending growth behind Nelson and Qualicum Beach. In 2009 operating spending per capita, Castlegar was $1.146 million, good for 80th worst. Nelson finished with $2.215 million for 16th worst. Trail’s 2009 operating spending

per capita was $1.616 million for 36th worst. “It just shows that compared to a good percentage of other municipalities in B.C., Castlegar does very well with how they’re spending compared to population growth,” said Chernoff.

The vandals’ voice Whether a political statement or the all-too-familiar and disconcerting vandalism... the damage and displacement of campaign signs (Nov. 10-11) was frustrating for those running in the civic election coming up on Nov. 19. Castlegar RCMP described the spree as “random mischief.” There were no specific suspects as of Nov. 15. Jim Sinclair photo

Selkirk College to host upcoming forest forum SUBMITTED

CASTLEGAR, B.C. - Selkirk College and its School of Environment and Geomatics invites the public to attend a community dialogue on B.C. forest management as part of the Healthy ForestsHealthy Communities initiative. It will be held on Thursday December 1 (9 a.m. – 12 p.m.) at the Selkirk College Castlegar Campus in the Staff Lounge. Community dialogue sessions will be held across the province to constructively explore the expressed needs of concerned citizens, helping to determine if current management practices enable local forests to satisfy their public purpose. A wide range of knowledgeable forest leaders are raising concerns about the

future of B.C.’s forests and the potential impact on families and communities. This is an ideal forum to send or emphasize your message to forest land management. Attendees will hear from a panel of forest experts involved in forest land management as well as have an opportunity to work in small groups to share their ideas about the future of forest land management. Come voice your concerns on what forest lands management in West Kootenay and B.C. needs to ensure the health of your family and community. To ensure progress, these sessions are intended as constructive dialogue and not a forum for complaints. Outcomes from these dialogue sessions will be used to inform a

recommended guide for future forest vision for resource management in B.C., which will be provided to senior decision-makers. Residents of B.C. rely on forests to fulfill a variety of needs ranging from recreation, resources, employment to clean air and water. To learn more about the Healthy Forests – Healthy Communities initiative and the views of a local community forest expert as well as a panel discussion from different stakeholders visit http://bcforestc onv e r s at i on . c om or direct inquires to info@bcforestconversation.com.

New crossing celebrated ELECT

JIM SINCLAIR Castlegar News Editor

About six weeks of work on a joint project between the City of Castlegar and the provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure was saluted by a group made of of reps from those two bodies, as well as local residents on November 11. Councillor Russ Hearne described how the intersection had been a concern for some time, and that the new facility was most welcome. “We’re going to try and get the same thing on 32nd Street as well,” he said. “It’s been a long time to get the crosswalk, and the drainage. We used to get a lot of puddles that would settle right in

powered, not costing us any money.” Councillor Hearne indicated the provincial Ministry put in about $146,000 for the total project which was worth just over $300,000. “The work itself was approximately six weeks once it was all

planned and ready to go,” said Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Operations Manager Darrell Gunn. “It was real easy to work with them,” said the Grand Forksbased Gunn of the municipal partners in the project.

for Area I Regional District Director Twenty years ago I chose to make my home in the beautiful area of Pass Creek. Because I care about the future of the region and I am concerned with the rapid development in the area, I want to be a more proactive member of the community. I enjoyed being involved with coaching youth soccer for a number of summers which allowed me to connect with young people and their parents. I am employed at Celgar Pulp Mill (Zelltsoff). Along with my duties as a Millwright, I was given the privilege of serving as the Safety Chairman and Chief Shop Steward for Local 1 PPWC. I believe that this was a valuable experience which will enable me to serve our community well as your District Director for Area I. We all live under the same sky, but we each visualize a different horizon. We need to value our residents, country wisdom and combined knowledge and use it to help direct future decisions. I don’t believe one person has enough experience to speak for all, but through regular interaction and research I would like to be given the opportunity to be that representative voice. We are privileged to be living in a wonderful area, and with your help I want us to move into a successful future. I therefore respectfully request your support to become your Area I Regional District Director.

A time for de-occupation Here in Castlegar we get a fairly nice mix of what is worldly and was is safely distinct from the sophisticated woes of the world. In smaller communities like this one there is often an off-shoot of the so-called “bigtime,” with entertainment efforts like (insert town name here) Idol contests and the like. It’s fun and it’s a ready-made model with which the small town population can strut its stuff. In terms of the “Occupy” phenomenon that began on New York’s Wall Street before going world-wide and is now at or beyond its best-before date... Castlegar has all but missed the boat. Passionate participants in other communities, including Nelson, got on the bandwagon and were able to make some hay while cashing in on the publicity of the global craze, but people everywhere are indicating more and more that the party should wind up. The message was, and is, a valid one but the messenger is either getting hoarse, the public impatient, or both. It’s time for everyone to shrink their focus back to dealing with their own short-term needs. Massive social change, on a scale such as what’s been pushed for in the various “Occupy” sites... isn’t likely to happen in a particular month or even a season. Now’s probably a good time to hunker down and maybe make plans for bigger, better, and more influential campaigns in the future. How about “Occupy 2012?” We want to hear from you.

Off the Line - Karen Haviland

Salute to the birthday boy & girl Birthdays ¬ what’s to say about them? I guess that depends on who you ask. For some people they’re an inconvenience, a reminder of their mortality, I guess. And yet for others, like me, they are important milestones which mark each achievement, each failure and life adventure. Just like the many ribbons which encircle lovely wrapped gifts, so they tie together life, whether it be good or bad. I know so many people who consider birthdays and birthday celebrations to be a waste of effort and money. While I comprehend that viewpoint, I fail to find the common ground of real understanding when it comes to declaring that the day one was born is unimportant. Do they not understand that every beginning, and every end, no matter how miniscule we might be in the scope of all things, is still an important and sacred thing? Every life, every form that grows, changes lives and dies has value. Life, for me is a series of celebrations. Lord knows we have enough heartache in our life and celebrations are simply a way of illuminating the good times and allowing the light to warm us and guide us. There is a special person in my life

Craig Lindsay Reporter

Theresa Hodge Office Manager

who insists that he doesn’t want his birthday marked in any way. No presents, thank you. No cards, thank you. No acknowledgement that this is a special day when a special person came to be. I simply tell him that while he might not consider his birth momentous, there are many in his life that value his every being and thus celebrate that special day. The argument that “we have everything we need and don’t need another gift” doesn’t quite convince me that birthdays are to be ignored. Beautiful is the day that the people you love were born. Beautiful is each birthday that you get to celebrate while your loved one is alive. Every person is a light. Every person has value. Family celebrations and traditions are important reminders that each and every one of us is important. It is the glue which binds families. When there is no cohesiveness, there really isn’t family. Gifts, while unimportant in the physical way, are a way of honouring those whom you love. But many fail to understand that true gifts are not always store-bought. True gifts, you see, are those with

Jim Sinclair Editor

Chris Hopkyns Publisher

no economic value. They are the gifts of the heart. The simple gift of forgiveness is beautiful and glorious. The gift of totally surrendering your heart is beyond value. The gift of support and love without expectation is one of the richest gifts one could give. A simple “I love you,” “I forgive you” or simply listening to the one you love speak their heart is immeasurable. It cost us nothing, and yet the value is beyond calculation. Yes, I celebrate life. I celebrate each victory. I even celebrate each sorrow, for without the sorrow, those victories would be hollow indeed. I celebrate failure and I celebrate success. The two balance each other beautifully and their juxtaposition is lovely and golden. I think those who claim to not want any recognition on their birthday might feel as if they are not worthy. I beg to differ. Every person should have his or her life honoured whether it be in grandiose ways, or in simple, humble ways. You are unique. You are special. Even in this large world where we sometimes feel like specks of dust, trust that your very being was meant to be and that in the scope of all things that are right in this world, you matter.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Several points, starting with water Letters to the editor from Mel McMullen and Barry Ehman certainly outline the policies of the present mayor and council, while the letter from Debbie Bayoff outlined the accomplishments of Gord Zaitsoff, a candidate for mayor. The water meters have been pushed down the throats of Castlegar residents after a petition was signed by several hundred residents against the proposal. The various reasons given by the city included: the river would run dry; the the pipeline was not big enough; the reservoir was going down every summer (which happens to coincide with the end of the runoff ); water should be treated the same as gas and oil and charged accordingly. I would think the water spread on lawns and gardens would become groundwater or evaporate. Water is renewable, gas and oil are not. And the one that shows the contempt council has for Castlegar residents – the excess water we use in summer overloads the sewers. I don’t agree with McMullen’s and Ehman’s suggestion that the City uses too

much water on our parks, etc. There is more than enough water to supply all the wants of Castlegar. Water and electric power are abundant and if handled with a little common sense, could bring industry to the region. The airport, before the casino boondoggle had a fine sewer/ septic system. I wonder how long, if ever, it will take the City to recover the millions spent on putting water and sewer to the airport. Regarding Gord Zaitsoff, I have never heard anything negative about him, in fact his record shows him to be decisive, a hard worker with an impressive list of accomplishments. What is more impressive, I have never seen him in a photo op. Now if Ehman and McMullen were to run for council I know where my first three votes would go. However, with the new list of candidates there is a good chance for the betterment of Castlegar. -Tom Willson Castlegar

How many hats are too many? I don’t usually write

to the paper but after following the mayoral race for the City of Castlegar I feel compelled. I live in Area J and I am disappointed that my director would rather be the Mayor in the city where he doesn’t even live. What about us? He claims that it will be good and the conflict will be small. I doubt that. He won’t be able to represent us in matters that also involve Castlegar. We will have some hand picked pal with no experience. At least the city will have its six councellors. We will have no one. I have to question his leadership skills as well. In the news and at the debate he attacked the councillors and the staff of the city. What good did that do? You want to lead the city but your first move is to alienate the hard working men and women that work there. You think having people worried about their job produces good results? Leadership is defined by actions. Having his young daughter there to ask one of the councilors about a “conflict of interest” does not show good judgment. A child reading a written question is wrong and sad. I suspect he made it known that his daughter was

there. That way he would have free reign to go on the attack knowing that people with class would be reluctant to counter in front of his child. I wish he would spend his time working on our issues, as he is paid to do. Where was he when Robson had water issues? How many people live there without potable water to drink? How much could he have done for those residents while he was slapping his name on a bridge. Why is he not helping the families who use the golf course road? People now have to watch for logging trucks using that narrow road this winter. The logging company figures that there will be approx 20-30 loaded trucks per day traveling down that road for the next two months. Sounds unsafe but profitable for some. He only attends about 60% of the meetings right now, how much less time will he be working on our behalf should he be successful and be elected mayor. I hope the residents of Castlegar re-elect Mayor Chernoff so OUR director can do his job for Area J. –Jason Wills Castlegar

Definitive research on the effectiveness of herbal remedies on disease is difficult to find. Sometimes it is easier to find studies that show what doesn’t work. For example it is well accepted now that fish oils and ginkgo do not have any benefit in treating or affecting the course of dementia and memory loss. A good natural way of avoiding constipation is to eat some dried fruit. Dried apricots is a good choice. They contain fibre and the sugar content in them doesn’t release in any large amount until the fruit reaches the large intestine where the sugars will draw water into that area. Be careful not to overdose, though. It is the flu season and there are ways you can avoid it. One way, obviously, is to stay away from people who have the flu. Washing your hands regularly throughout the day also helps because those flu viruses can stay on door knobs and other people’s hands for quite a while. Get lots of rest, eat nutritionally, avoid excessive alcohol and get plenty of exercise. Oh yes, get your flu shot. Mozart’s death at 35 was a tragedy. How much more beautiful music we would enjoy had he lived longer. Doctors now think that lack of sunshine may have contributed to his illness and death. He was so focused on his music he didn’t get out in the open air much. We will never know for sure but it’s interesting. Vitamin D supplements are available to ensure you have enough of this important vitamin. Our pharmacists will be glad to advise you on the type and amount you should take.

CBT welcomes new personnel SUBMITTED

(Columbia Basin) Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) is pleased to welcome 11 new members to its three advisory committees in its core areas ofsocial, economic and environment. One way CBT remains accountable to Basin residents is through the use of these committees, which provide advice on how CBT delivers benefits to the region. “In order to help provide a lasting legacy of social, economic and environmental well-being, CBT needs to be aware of current issues and concerns in Basin communities,” said Neil Muth, CBT President and CEO. “Our advisory committees are one way to receive this input, plus we benefit from the members’ individual areas of expertise.” The committee’s advice is sought according to thevision and principles outlined in the Columbia Basin Management Plan. “Joining CBT’s Social Advisory Committee means being part of a team of dedicated people that are working together to making the Basin a better place to live,” said new member Keri Rinehart, Kimberley. “CBT’s approach of bringing

people together to gain perspective and seek feedback while striving to move forward is very inclusive and inspiring. I’m excited to be a part of this process.” “I chose to join the Environment Advisory Committee to be a participant in a team that works to achieve ongoing environmental integrity in the Basin,” said new member James Maitre, Revelstoke. “Working in collaboration ensures a variety of ideas are brought forth and considered, which ultimately helps strengthen CBT’s presence in the Basin.” CBT would like to acknowledge and welcome the following new members: * Social Advisory Committee: Mary DeVan, Lynn Mace, Susie Mayson, Dee McEachern and Keri Rinehart; * Economic Advisory Committee: Mike Cantle; and * Environment Advisory Committee: Theresa Ehman, Jayme Hadikin, James Maitre, Daniel Schneider and Ian Wiles.

Remembrance Reflections They gave their all, standing brave and tall, for the country they called home. They saw friends pass, and people gone, yet still they carried on. They fought their fears, and lost their peers, yet all those years they fought for us. Thanks to them we’re free, we don’t see what they’ve seen, They’ve sheltered us through that storm. So now I can remember, not just in November, to remember the peace they’ve bought. So now I can remember, and thank in my heart, All the lives they’ve save and helped start. - Jennifer Dimock, Nov. 15, 2010

The West Kootenay Women in Business (WKWB) group is a networking opportunity designed just for women. The group holds a luncheon on the second Thursday of each month in Castlegar where presentations are made by guest speakers and business ideas around specific topics are discussed. The November 2011 luncheon was focussed on “Speed Networking”. The group participated in a couple activities designed to encourage discussion with each other about themselves and their businesses in a format not unlike Speed Dating. The WKWB group has a vision to grow a strong local network of knowledgeable and

talented women from all walks of life. The group is designed for business owners, managers, employees and women who dream of running their own business one day. The group recognizes that a local network is an invaluable asset and that an investment of time to attend a regular networking event will grow that asset as business relationships are created and ideas and experiences are shared to mutual advantage. The women’s networking group provides an empowering environment where women can feel comfortable to discuss their business issues and offer solutions to each other.

Community High time for Fair Trade Kootenay Family Place Hobbit House – island of safety and fun SUBMITTED

At Castlegar United, coffee time after the Sunday service is an important part of our community life. At the church, we serve only fairly traded coffee. For us, as people of faith, what we eat and drink, what we buy, matters. Making food choices that reflect our commitment to justice and mercy is a way we show our love for God and our neighbours. Why fairly traded coffee?

Shade grown and organic coffee farming, usually diversified, is encouraged. When we drink a rich cup of fairly traded or fair trade coffee, we are helping the coffee grower receive a better price for his coffee beans. How would you like it if you worked hours a day on your farm to produce the best coffee beans you can, only to receive a few pennies a pound for it? How’d you like it knowing your coffee sold for $5-$12 a pound in another country? The coffee grower works hard for that coffee bean. There’s the planting, tending and eventually picking the cherries, after the plant is at least three years old. Secondly, the cherries are soaked, fermented and washed to remove the beans. Third, the beans need to be dried in the sun, and finally sorted, bagged and transported to market. It’s a manystepped process. By joining a fair trade co-operative, a farmer can make a decent living. These co-operatives guarantee the farmer a fairer price for their product, linking farmers

directly with importers/roasters and in so doing, bypassing the middlemen. The fair trade coop buys the coffee at the free market traders’ price plus the farmer receives a dividend when his co-op union sells directly to roasters at a higher and fairer price than the free trade market price. The co-ops maintain specific standards including • No child labour • Decent working conditions such as time for breaks • Equal opportunity for women and • Ecological sustainability. Shade grown and organic coffee farming, usually diversified, is encouraged. The result is a higher quality bean, and the diversified farmer benefits not only from a more fair income from his coffee but also from an income from his other crops. The environmentally sound practices which are encouraged enable sustainability for the farmer. When I was in Guatemala, I was excited to see first-

hand coffee bushes growing under rows of nut trees! So why pay more for your coffee? Fair trade is a few dollars more. Aside from a better product, better for our environment, the price better reflects its true value to the farmer. There are many roasting companies all over Canada now who import fair trade and fairly traded coffee which benefits the growers. Local roasters include Oso Negro in Nelson and Kicking Horse in Invermere. We use fairly traded Café Etico at Castlegar United. Most supermarkets now offer a variety of fair trade or fairly traded coffee. Look for the labeling. Other fair trade products such as chocolate, tea and a variety of crafts are available and, like coffee, they help to raise the standard of living for millions of people in the poorer countries of the world. What about buying fairly traded items as thoughtful and environmentally friendly Christmas presents?

CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News Reporter

Imagine coming to work and finding extensive water damage throughout your place of business. That very scenario happened to Kootenay Family Place’s Hobbit Hill Children’s Centre back in October leaving the daycare centre scrambling to find spots for children in their programs. “It was Oct. 5, our director of finance, Connie Relkoff, opened the doors and went to turn on lights and noticed that the whole upstairs floor was covered in water,” said Sally Bojechko, director of child care for Kootenay Family Place (KFP). “What happened was one of the toilets was broken and had been running all night. She came downstairs and it was raining through the ceiling.” Parents started to arrive at 6:45 a.m. and were told they had to make alternate arrangements. “We had to shutdown our services immediately,” said Bojechko. “In addition, a number of children moved to KFP’s Selkirk College facility. The remaining families used family, friends, and neighbours to look after their children.” Hobbit Hill, which provides

full daycare for kids aged 3-5 and after school care for older children, was forced to shut down their two programs immediately.

“Most of the families have come back, even though they found alsternative care for their kids, they’re coming back.” Jim Fisher, Exec. Director, KFP

“We were able to get backup space for our school aged children at Twin Rivers,” said Bojechko. “Our three to five program upstairs like I said, a number went to Selkirk College, while about 20 families made other arrangements for a period of about three weeks.” The building had to have extensive repairs before Hobbit Hill was able to reopen. “The walls had to be painted, new ceiling, new flooring, the walls had to be replaced,” said Jim Fisher, executive director for Kootenay Fam-

We lost a lot of equipment.” Fisher wants to remind people that Hobbit Hill is open again. “We want to make sure everyone in the community knows we’re back open and taking referrals,” he said. Hobbit Hill not only provides after school care for school-aged children, but before school care as well as care for professional development days and school holidays. “It’s a huge program for local families to rely on, working families,” said Fisher. “It’s been a real hardship. But most of the families have come back even though they found alternative care for their kids, they’re coming back. “We are very appreciative of families for being supportive,” said Fisher. “We also want to thank the fire marshall for being so supportive, and Twin Rivers School for helping us out so quickly.” Kootenay Family Place and Hobbit Hill Children’s Centre have been in Castlegar for 40 years. Hobbit Hill is one of six licensed child care programs run by KFP.

Kim’s creating some downright compelling cuisine CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News Reporter

The secret ingredi-

ations - it’s absolutely true. Watching Clark work in the kitchen, it’s obvious, her love of cooking and creating wonderful, savory dishes bubbles over. “I just love to cook,� she said. “There’s no cuisine that I don’t like to cook. I like experimenting with new flavours and new dishes. It excites me.� Kim’s Creations is

a catering company in Castlegar that caters almost everything from Rotary banquets to spaghetti feeds, weddings to gala events, city council events to corporate functions. Whether breakfasts, lunches, dinners, or desserts, Kim and her crew will make it delicious. Clark started the business six years ago after moving to the

area with her husband. She formerly lived on the Prairies where she worked in office jobs for Manitoba Telephones and Edmonton Telephones. When she came to Castlegar with her husband she found there were not many jobs available so she started her own with Kim’s Creations. “I’d always cooked,� she said. “I was quarter-master (head cook) for Girl Guides. Someone phoned and asked if I would cater for a funeral so I did that. It just evolved from there. It was a business that found me. “It’s been going good. Every year I get a little busier. I love it.� Clark has about five people who work for her company including right-hand woman Debbie Barens.

Kim Clark clearly loves her work.

“She works for me almost full-time and we have several others that work as needed,� said Clark. Clark began her love of cooking at a young age. With two working parents, she was put in charge of cooking for her four younger siblings. “I’ve always, always, always cooked,� she said. “I’d come home after school when I was eight and have to make supper

for the whole family. I’ve always cooked. I just love it.� Even after all these years, Clark still finds cooking rewarding. “I find it relaxing,� she said. “I like seeing people eating my food. I like people saying how they enjoy it. It’s giving a little of myself to somebody.� For more, check out Kim’s Creations at www.kimscreations. ca or call 250-3045900.

The only way to know the radon level in your home is to take a simple and inexpensive test. Learn how to protect the health of your family from the risks of radon exposure.

Larry Walker – candidate for Area I Regional Director I believe that when communities can govern by consensus, everyone benefits. The decisions that are made in and by government affect all of us, whether we live in the rural or the urban area. The beneficial use of land is just as important to the citizen of each area. The need by people for medical service, for example, doesn’t stop at the boundaries of the city. The need for food production is essential to both areas. Similarly, the rural area benefits from the development of industry and business. Accurate and timely information is equally important to all if beneficial and practical decisions are to be

made. The use of that information must be focused on tolerance, respect for the opinions of others, practical consideration for all who are affected, and, most importantly, a firm understanding that decisions will be reached with reasonable speed. If we are to progress toward the goal of having a sustainable lifestyle

in this area in which it is our privilege to live, we must work together, be prepared to share our thoughts and ideas in a supportive atmosphere, and be open to discussion and debate. I believe as a community, wildfire protection, water quality and its use are important issues. We should see investment in our fire

departments, transit services and local recreation. A lot of money is being proposed for the RDCK Resource Recovery plan. How is this going to be implemented and what is its effect on our area? It would be good to see the electronic social media program promoted by the RDCK become a success from our residents’ participation. These are some of the many issues which are going to affect us and help us. I respectfully request your support to become your Regional Director, and if I am successful, your help in making fair and effective decisions. -Larry Walker

Faith/Spirituality JIM SINCLAIR Castlegar News Editor

Based in Surrey, the Ahmadiyya Moslem Community has been active of late, meeting people in distant communities across B.C. The goal of the group is to explain their faith to interested citizens, and counteract and correct many misconceptions in regard to their faith. On the program were a number of questions the group would deal with, including: • Is terrorism related to Islam? • Does Islam permit freedom of belief or freedom of thought? • What is the formula of peace? • What does the Holy Qur’an say

Draw date is December 20, 2011 Aslam Shad (second from left) conducts an open session on the theme: “Islam, Religion of Peace or Terror.” Up to a dozen local residents took in the 90-minute presentation on Nov. 13 at the Castlegar Public Library. Jim Sinclair photo

about “Jihad”? •Does Islam permit women’s rights? Rizwan Peerzada, Ahmadiyya regional coordinator, said that up to that point the series of presenta-

tions had been going well, with “very good response... very encouraging.” The men in the group had made a similar presentation the day before in Cranbrook and

were scheduled for dates in Grand Forks, Oliver and Summerland following their Castlegar stop. “They were trying to sort of present Islam in a better light, and basically show

that it’s not the religion that’s causing problems,” said event participant John Walton, “but some of the foolish interpretations of the religion. I was sympathetic to them.”

Q A

Why does my insurance company require me to increase the value of my home?

Insurance companies require you to insure your dwelling to 100% of its replacement cost. There is some confusion with market value and/or assessed value in comparison with replacement value. Replacement value includes the costs of labour and materials to rebuild and refinish your home in the same location, with like kind and quality materials, and includes the cost of debris removal. Insurance companies do not take into consideration the amount your home would sell for on the real estate market, or the amount it is valued at for taxation purposes. Each year, your insurance company will increase your dwelling limit by a small percentage. These automatic increases are in place in order to keep up with inflation. Most insurance companies require a review of the replacement value of your home every three years. If the amount of insurance on your current policy does not reflect the full replacement cost of your dwelling at the time of review, the companies requires that your limit of insurance be increased so that you are not underinsured in the event of a loss. It is very important to advise your broker of any changes or improvements made to your home as sometimes these modifications will significantly alter the replacement value of your home. Though no one likes to see their insurance premium increase, the peace of mind that comes from knowing that, in the event of a serious loss, you have adequate insurance coverage to rebuild and restore your home back to its present state, far outweighs the premium increase.

Anthony Delong of the Rebels slams on the brakes as tries to score on Grand Forks netminder Cole Buckley in the first period of Tuesday’s game at the Castlegar Community Complex. Craig Lindsay photo CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News Reporter

Jacob Bergeron evened the score at 15:41 of the second, with a power play goal of his own assisted by Carson McCulloch and Bryan Read. A 1-1 tie against the 0-20 Border Bruins heading into the third period was not what the small but faithful crowd at the Community Complex was expecting. Fortunately, Arthur Andrews was able to give the hometown Rebels a 2-1 lead with just over two minutes left in the second, assisted by Kody Disher and Bryce Eviston.

“They worked hard,” said Junker. “I think they outworked us. They had opportunities there early. Their goalie, Cole Buckley, played well.” Castlegar was finally able to generate some offence in the third with three unanswered goals to put the game away. Scoring in the third were Kinney with his two and Walton with a single. Walton and Robinson both had a pair of assists in the final period to end with three assists each. See Page 25 for more Rebels coverage.

Two third period goals from Nolan Kinney helped Castlegar shake out of their doldrums and cruise to a 5-1 win over Grand Forks on Tuesday at the Castlegar Community Complex. “I wasn’t pleased with our effort coming out of the gate,” said Rebels coach Steve Junker. “A few too many of our guys were maybe looking at the standings and hoping for a nice, easy night. As everybody knows, the minute you think that way, the minute it becomes difficult.” In the first two periods, the Rebels took 25 shots and dominated play but could only get two goals past Grand Forks goalie Cole Buckley. Anthony Delong opened the scoring with the only goal of the first period, a power play marker at 10:51 assisted by Stuart Walton and Ty- Delong goes one on one with Buckley once again on Craig Lindsay photo ler Robinson.

Valley Jiu-Jitsu performers excel in Trail SUBMITTED

Eight-year-old Yarrow Doyle had the right stuff at the Pride Gym Invitational JiuJitsu tournament in Trail on Nov. 5. Doyle, who trains at Valley Jiu-Jitsu in Castlegar, earned a trophy for the best submission in the kids’ division along with a silver medal for his performance. “Yarrow is very enthusiastic about his jiu-jitsu, and leaves it all on the mat,” said Chris Thring, head instructor at Valley Jiu-Jitsu. Doyle wasn’t the only stand out on the Valley Jiu-Jitsu team. Grant Smith, 15, won

a gold medal in the teen division as well as a trophy for winning the absolute, where competitors face off regardless of belt level or weight class. “Grant trains hard on a regular basis, and it was great to see his hard work pay off,” Thring said. Kayah Folster, 8, also brought home a gold medal and teammates Carson Ogloff, 8, Jacob Perepolkin, 10, and Nate Turner, 7, earned silver medals in the kids’ division.

Rebels shut out by Penticton, beat Princeton on Southern Okanagan tour CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News Reporter

A lack of offensive output doomed Castlegar on the second game of a two game swing into the Okanagan. The Rebels fell 2-0 to Penticton on Saturday despite outshooting them 28-21. The loss put an end to the Rebels’ modest three game winning streak. The night before Castlegar was in Princeton where they slammed the Posse 4-1. “Princeton was a big, strong team and we were playing in a small rink,” said Rebels coach Steve Junker. “It was a physical game. We got a couple of power play opportunities which got us going. We got the bus legs out early. We played well.” Castlegar used five different scorers to topple the hometown Posse. “We had a really good game. We had everything going,” said veteran defenceman Tyler Jones. “It was like our first big win on a road trip. It was good trip for our team bonding. I think we’re coming along as a team.” Keenan Fordy put Princeton up 1-0 with a power play goal at 17:28. The Rebels tied the game up with a power play goal of their own from Bryce Eviston at 4:59 of the first. Assisting Eviston were Erik Alden and Stuart Walton.

Scott Morisseau picked up the go ahead goal at 16:58 of the second, assisted by Anthony Delong and Arthur Andrews. Tyler Robinson pushed the Rebels up 3-1 with a power play goal at 11:53 of the second period assisted by Walton and Diego Bartlett. Jones scored an insurance marker for Castlegar at 11:01 of the third assisted by Joren Johnson and Peter Mingus. On Saturday, Penticton used goals from Sasha Hahn and Kale Erickson to topple the Rebels. Jessie Gordichuk got the shutout for the Lakers, stopping all 28 Castlegar shots.

Connor Beauchamp was between the pipes for Castlegar and he save 19 of 21 Penticton shots. “Penticton really worked hard and just stifled us with their strong defence,” said Junker. “We didn’t score on our chances early and when they scored one it kind of swung the momentum in their favour and they continued to work extremely hard.” Castlegar is in Grand Forks tonight (Thursday) for a rematch with the Border Bruins. The Rebs then travel to Spokane Saturday and are back in town Sunday for an afternoon (2 p.m.) tilt with Penticton.

Saints swept by Trinity Western

Castlegar News Reporter

After upsetting then-undefeated Eastern Washington University in two straight games last weekend, the Selkirk College Saints looked to build on their winning ways against Trinity Western University (TWU). Unfortunately, the Spartans had other plans as they swept the home town Saints in two straight games at the Castlegar Community Complex: 5-3 on Saturday, and 4-3 on Sunday. “It was a weekend where we wanted to get four points,

needed to get four points, but it didn’t go as we wanted,” said Saint’s forward Jordan Wood. “We wanted to win both and couldn’t really afford to lose to the last place team in the league.” On Friday, Selkirk got on the board first with Nick Cecconi scoring at 9:40 of the first period assisted by Caleb Georgetti and Justin Sotkowy. Trinity stormed back with two in a row to end the first up 2-1. Wood, the Saint’s top scorer, notched a pair in the second period to put Selkirk up 3-2. Both goals were assisted by Sotkowy and Sandro Moser.

Trinity Western would tie at 15:54 of the third with a shorthanded goal by Kyle Benjamin. Brandon Long got the winner for the Spartans at 6:33 and also scored an insurance marker at 2:54 to give the visitors the 5-3 victory. “We need to work on finishing the games off,” said Wood. “We had a 3-2 lead going into the third period and fell apart. We need to be able to play with a lead and hold on to it. We can’t be losing any more games we’re leading if we’re going to make the play-offs.” The two teams

played again on Sunday at the Castlegar Complex. Selkirk once again struck first with Adam Makaroff scoring at 18:44 of the first period assisted by Scott Jago and Wood. Trinity then scored four unanswered goals, including three in the second period, to go up 4-1. Moser and Garrett Kucher scored third period goals for the Saints to cut the gap to two and one goals respectively, but Selkirk couldn’t get the equalizer and lost 4-3. The Saints are now tied for fifth place in the BCIHL with Thompson Rivers University with six

points, although the Wolfpack has three games in hand. Selkirk’s next game is Nov. 26 in Kelowna against Okanagan College. “We’ve played them twice and both games were really close,” said Wood. “Both games were one goal I think. We had a lead and they came back and won. So we’ll see, it should be a real good game. Hopefully we’ll get a win this time.” The Saints don’t play at home again until after Christmas when they host league leading Simon Fraser University from Burnaby on Jan. 14 and 15.

In Memoriam

Walter Demoskoff

In Memoriam

Gerry Lacasse July 24, 1945 November 20, 2008

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years Sharing memories now brings more smiles than tears Gerry enjoyed life’s simple pleasures Good friends were his greatest treasures Money was a tool to get what you need Hard work and honour those were his creed It’s been difficult with you not by our side And we are still filled with enormous pride To have known the amazing man that you were Despite the struggles you had to endure We will never forget your beautiful smile Your willingness to stop and chat for a while His mischievous eyes would sparkle with glee When with your opinion he might disagree You were a selfless partner, and devoted friend Some rules, he’d say were made to bend Tender, humble, honest and kind A legacy of love he left behind. Gerry’s motto was: Linger by the campfire, put in an honest day’s work, love with all your heart and soul, and laugh until you hurt. Lovingly remembered by Darlene, the Moore and Lacasse families, and Gerry’s many friends.

Walter is survived by his 3 daughters, Lorissa Demoskoff of Vancouver B.C., Penny (Dan) Zoobkoff of Shoreacres B.C., Holly (Dan) Podovelnikoff of Moscow, Russia, 7 grandchildren and 4 great grand-children. He also leaves behind his brother Cyril (Hazel) Demoskoff of South Slocan. A traditional Doukhobor funeral ceremony was held on October 29, 2011 at the Slocan Park Community Hall. Sarah Greenwood of the Castlegar Funeral Chapel was entrusted with arrangements. MAY GOD ACCEPT HIM INTO HIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM.

Shirley Jean Lefurgey (Dobbie)

Passed away on Nov. 4, 2011. She was born on April 6, i New N W i B C 1934 in Westminster B.C. to Sarah and Walter Dobbie of Scotland. She grew up in Sapperton with her older sister Audrey. She lost her father when she was 15 to lung complications incurred during WWI, but she never stopped missing him. As a young teen she played basketball and was a Past Honoured Queen in Job’s Daughters. After graduation Shirley worked as a stenographer for doctors practicing Psychiatric Medicine. A job she found interesting and challenging. In 1961 Shirley married Dave and in 1971 they moved with 5 children to the West Kootenays. In 1979 Shirley started work with West Kootenay Power, South Slocan branch and remained with them for 18 years. The ladies on Doukhobour road were her steadfast companions. Coffee and honey crullers, seafood, crib, a well written book and music with a beat were some of her favourite things. Shirley is survived by her children Pat Strasky (Jim and Liam) of Dawson Creek, Lynn Costello of Fort St. John, Cam Lefurgey (Shelley, Alison and Sara) of Castlegar, Andrew Lefurgey of Castlegar and Glen Lefurgey currently teaching in China. We would like to make a special thank-you to Dr. Lesperance. We also wish to thank the staff at Castleview, Saber Physiotherapy, the local Ambulance attendants and Paragon Staff for taking such good care of Shirley. Cremation has taken place under the care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel. We greatly appreciated their kindness and guidance for both Dad and Mom’s arrangements. Shirley is predeceased by her husband Dave (Sept. 6, 2011). At her request there will not be a funeral service at this time. Mom was a dedicated parent and grandparent who delighted in making us feel special. She was passionate about helping children who struggled to live or learn. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of BC. We will miss her sense of humour and her quiet strength. God Bless Mom.
