Hotel begins to take shape BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

After delays caused by a cool, wet spring and early summer, construction on the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre is finally in full swing. “It has been frustrating at time, but it’s exciting to see things moving ahead now,” said Mary Angus, a spokesperson for AB-BC Resources Ltd., which got development approval last year for a site at the intersection of Highways 3 and 3A at the west edge of Creston. “We are targeting for a March 2012 opening,” she said. The 71-room hotel, with the first new hospitality rooms built in Creston since the 1960s, will also accommodate meetings and conferences for up to 100 people. Negotiations are underway for a restaurant to be built on the property, which was given a tentative release from the Agriculture Land Reserve in 2009 by the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC). “This has been a very complicated development process,” Angus said. Once the ALC approval was in place, a site plan had to be created, then approved by different levels of government, including the Town of Creston and Ministry of Transportation. All municipal services had to be extended to accommodate not only the hotel, but potential development of ancillary services, which include a restaurant and potential retail businesses.

Water commission discusses impact of exploration BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Representatives of a company conducting mineral exploration in and near the Arrow Creek watershed were on the hot seat last week. About 40 local residents attended a meeting of the Arrow Creek Water Commission on July 26 at the Creston and District Community Complex to learn more about test drilling, which began last year. Exploration is being conducted by two Cranbrook-based firms, Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. and TerraLogic Exploration Services. “We’ve invited people to this meeting so they can get information from the people involved,” commission chair John Kettle said as he opened the meeting. Project geologist Jim Harley presented an outline of the company’s activities in the Iron Range area, explaining about how the area was mapped and subject to airborne surveys before several test holes were drilled. Some of those holes, which average 300-350 meters in depth, were in the upper reaches of the Arrow Creek watershed, he said. While gold was not necessarily the motivating factor in the explorations, he said, one test hole revealed a massive iron sulphide find at the 200-meter level. In that rock, gold was found in quantities as high as 14 grams per ton. The formation also contains silver, Harley said. Responding to Kettle’s question about the next step in developing the assets, Harley said, “We think there is value in the ground. We are not anywhere close to a mine — we are in the very early stages of exploration.” “Junior companies get bought out by majors when a resource is developed,” he added later. An inspector from the B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines told the meeting that the process from exploration through development is a long one. When exploration indicates a development is feasible, he said, years of baseline study data are collected. Wildlife values are studies, communities in the area and First Nations are consulted with, a reclamation plan must be developed and money for reclamation must be in place before any approvals are made. Often, too, roads must be built, adding to environmental assessments for the mining itself. Eagle Plains president and chief executive officer Tim Termuende

History of Iron Range

The original Iron Range prospect was discovered and staked in 1897 along an extensive belt of iron oxide showings. In 1939, the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada Ltd., along with its parent company Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR), acquired many of the historic Crown grants on the northern part of Iron Range Mountain. The claims were evaluated by CM&S (later Cominco Ltd., then Teck Cominco Ltd, and now Teck Ltd.), to assess the potential for a large iron resource. In 1957, Cominco Ltd. completed an extensive trenching program exposing the Iron Range structure and mineralization over more than four kilometers strike length. Most of the Iron Range Crown grants were held by ComincoCPR until 1999, when they were reverted after being held privately for over 100 years. Eagle Plains Resources Limited restaked the original Crown grants on the day they lapsed. (From the Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. website,

said that mineral exploration is invited by the B.C. government, which creates geological maps. “There is no question that Arrow Creek is an area of interest,” he said. “That interest was stimulated by government mapping. There is no doubt we can explore responsibly and protect water users. But we would never be in a position to develop the resource — a large company would do the mining.” Mining, he said, would only go ahead if government agencies were assured it can be done without compromising the other values in the area, including wildlife and water. When asked why the Regional District of Central Kootenay wasn’t taking steps to protect the watershed, Kettle explained that it is Crown land. “Every little valley is a watershed for someone,” he said. “B.C. has the toughest regulations in Canada. The moment the Arrow Creek Water Commission knows they (mining developers) are going into our watershed, we will speak to it.”

From page 1 “We anticipate that this development will have many positive effects for the Creston Valley,” she said. “With our location in the hub of the Kootenays, we expect to be able to attract conferences that have always been held in other communities. Creston, with our smaller facility and the newly renovated community complex, will be able to compete in the conference market for the first time. Existing motels and bed and

breakfasts should benefit, too.” Angus also feels that Creston Valley attractions will benefit from the new hotel. “The Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area is a world class bird-watching site that gets visitors from around the world,” she said. “There is increasing interest in our agricultural base and the airport has tremendous potential. Promoting these aspects of our valley will be easier when we have a new hotel with a recog-

nizable, respected name like Ramada has.” Angus gave credit to the Town of Creston and other agencies that have worked with AB-BC Resources Ltd. to get the hotel and conference centre construction underway. “This is a multi-million dollar investment in our community and it hasn’t always been smooth sailing,” she said. “But we are pleased with the way it’s going now and looking forward to a 2012 opening.”

Future plans for COTR include expansion of garden From page 1 The new garden, which includes a locally built bridge over a “waterless river”, was designed by COTR staff member Carmen RockwellHoover. Funds for the project were provided by Columbia Basin Trust, with additional contributions from the Town of Creston, Regional District of Central Kootenay areas A, B and C, Shell Canada and COTR. “A total of 24 volunteers helped with the project, so I

don’t think we can name them all,” Saywer said. “But I would like to express our appreciation to them, as well as to the many others who help with our many greenhouse programs.” In the future, she said the area to the front of the college building should be completely transformed. “As funds become available in the future we will eventually renovate the remainder of the front lawn, including a student gazebo,”

Mortgage brokers offer choice Submitted by Dean Bala DLC Whitehouse Mortgages

The next time you’re looking for a mortgage for that new house or you’re up for renewal on your existing mortgage, think about using a mortgage broker – their services are free and they offer you an abundance of choices. Mortgage brokers have access to a vast array of lenders – up to 90+ institutions, including some of the big banks – which enables these professionals to negotiate the best possible mortgage products and rates on your behalf. Your broker acts as an agent between you and these institutions, ensuring you get the best products, rates, and service. Mortgage brokers do their homework on available mortgage products and keep themselves abreast of any new products, or changes to existing products, to ensure they find the best mortgage to fit your specific needs.

Mortgage brokers can also cater to selfemployed borrowers as well as those who have suffered credit blemishes due to life experiences such as divorce or illness. Brokers will listen to your story. If you’re thinking of buying a home, a Mortgage Broker can find the best mortgage rate and term for your unique situation. Top Reasons for Using a Broker: 1) Choice - access to multiple financial institutions. 2) Rates - because brokers can choose from a number of lenders, they can usually offer the best rates. 3) Costs - using a Mortgage Broker costs you nothing. 4) Knowledge - brokers stay up-to-date on available products and services. 5) Flexibility - clients can choose whether to deal in person, on the phone, or by email, whichever is most convenient for you.

Gold find raises concerns

Thar’s gold in them thar hills. In the Iron Range, to be precise. And it was hardly surprising, with the shiny yellow metal trading at record prices, that there would exploration done in the area to the north and east of Creston. Numerous other companies have explored the mountain range in the past and the demand for many different metals has grown dramatically, much of it due to the expansion of the Chinese economy. The challenge for us in the little old Creston Valley is to ensure the environment is protected during the exploration process and when mining takes place, if indeed it ever does. The Iron Range forms part of the Arrow Creek drainage, from whence comes the water supply for Erickson and Creston. It also provides water for Columbia Brewery, one of the drivers of what has become a very slow economy in recent months. Questions and comments at last week’s meeting of the Arrow Creek Water Commission came from the curious and the adamantly opposed, as one might have expected. With a half-dozen folks from the company conducting the exploration in attendance, local residents took the opportunity to express their concerns. Some were just peculiar, like the ones from an Erickson resident who pushed to learn the names of past exploration companies and potential mining firms that could become involved. The questioner took on the air of a modern day Nero Wolfe, but seemed disappointed when there was no indication of involvement by one particular company, which may or may not be the devil incarnate.

The comment that really caught my attention was as predictable as it was unhelpful. “We know what you (the exploration group) are doing up there (in the watershed) — it’s all about the money,� was the gist of concern.

other exporters can survive when the Canadian dollar is significantly higher than its U.S. counterpart. What was a profitable endeavour with a 70-cent dollar could be a losing proposition at $1.10. Diversity is our greatest economic strength, ensuring our economy doesn’t tank when others around us do. And mining activity has long been a missing piece of the diversity puzzle.

Wealthy need to be taxed

To the Editor: Why are conservative governments like the B.C. Liberals so infatuated with the HST? Bill Bennett has been throwing numbers around in paid statements in local papers every week since June 23, and then in his letter to the Creston Valley Advance supporting the HST with more numbers, he said the Nelson-Creston area “is unrepresented by a government MLA.” His next sentence begins, “The government of B.C., of which I am a member…” That’s an interesting concept. If the B.C. Liberals do not consider Michelle Mungall of any other NDP MLA to be a member of the government of B.C. while Bill Bennett emphasizes that he is a member, then just how is Bill trying to define provincial government for us? What does he think the non-Liberals sitting in the legislative assembly are? And what will he think he is when he is sitting with the official opposition? Let’s return to the first question: Why is the HST so important? One of Shakespeare’s characters said, “Methinks the man doth protest too

opiNioN LiNe

much.” And it seem to me the rhetoric, numbers and amendments being made in order to sell the HST are also too much and must be in the range of the $1.5 billion they say we will lose going back to the PST and GST. The loss could be regained by taxing the wealthy and corporations. After all, by now, almost everyone must know there is no trickle-down effect, just an increasing gap and B.C. debt. I can’t believe the rebates and subsidies to single parents and other low-income earners come anywhere near the increase in consumer tax being paid by families with two substantial incomes when the HST is at the intended 12 per cent or even the promised 10 per cent on July 1, 2014, which is a bird in the bush, not in the hand, especially considering the economic woes forecast for the near future. Not taxing the wealthy is one cause of Greece’s economic woes and the conservative politicians in the U.S.A. are willing to create a global economic meltdown rather than tax the wealthy, and here in B.C., the HST is our way of going down the same path. Is that why it is so important to Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals? If the wage slaves pay all the taxes, especially consumer taxes, and the conservative governments work to cut services, wages and benefits, who will buy all the toys with planned obsoles-

cence that need to be sold to keep the economy strong? Credit cards have their limits. Peter Ross Canyon

Will promises be broken? To the Editor: I have watched the ads on TV and read MLA Bill Bennett’s letter in the Advance (July 7) debating the other side of the HST. Everywhere, they mention the HST at 10 per cent. Whenever I pay HST, it is always 12 per cent. I know the Liberals have promised to lower it to 10 per cent in 2014. They promised all kinds of rebates “in the future”. In 1991, the Conservatives introduced the GST. The Liberals promised to abolish the GST when elected. The Liberals were elected, and they still kept the HST. My point is, if they wanted to lower the HST, it should have been done yesterday. Any promises made for the future can easily be broken. This seems to be the Liberal way. Liz Woodworth Creston

New books ordered for library

Our grant cheque from the province of B.C. has just been electronically added to the library chequing account and the line from a Bugs Bunny show comes immediately to my mind, “Let the bells ring out and the banners fly.” Our financial reality has just gone from scary to bright and shiny and the very best news is we can resume book, magazine and audio purchasing. Many thanks to our patrons, who have been extraordinarily patient and accepting of the lack of new material coming into the library for past few months. Orders are going in Monday and the several hundred requests I have received along with the Booker shortlist will be the first ones in. I am very pleased to announce two new staff members to the library team. Gail Southall and Jackie Hula began work last week and so far, have not left the building screaming. I think they might like us. You might recall Gail from her role as food action co-ordinator

and she has maintained a profile in the community through the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition. Jackie and family

moved to Creston from Alberta, where Jackie had a great deal of experience in a high school library and municipal library. The long-range plan is to arrange for more programs for adults and for young adults in the library as both Gail and Jackie have special interests in these areas. Both have currently begun getting to know patrons and the collection by working on the circulation desk. What a different summer so far in the

Not surprisingly, we are also seeing more visitors coming in to use the wireless to Skype and to update their smartphones, BlackBerrys and other handheld devices.

Vacationing this winter?

The ideas that we have, some from childhood and some acquired in later years, actually rule our world. There are basically two types of ideas, facts and opinions, and there really aren’t many facts. Life is a fact, as are birth, death, the sun, the moon, air, heat and

cold. These things are. We all are affected by them. We can manipulate them, like using air conditioning to ease the summer’s heat, but we can’t change them. Opinions, on the other hand, are countless, for they consist of our ideas about facts. And opinions are very powerful, for they determine how we feel, what we do, how we relate to others, and all the other things in our personal experience. While facts can’t be changed, opinions can. Dr. Serge King, in his book, Imagineering for Health, says, “What gets many people into trouble is that they tend to confuse opinions with facts. … They treat their opinions as facts of life, rather than ideas about facts.” Fact: Life is. Opinion: Life is a struggle. Fact: I am. Opinion: I am incompetent

opinions, but when we can overcome that fear, we are able to start improving our experience. Dr. King confirms, “There is no way to get around it: If you are living in poverty, you are holding opinions that keep you from getting money; if you have poor health, you are holding opinions that are keeping you from becoming well; if you can’t get along with people, you are holding opinions that keep you from doing so. What is in your life reflects what is in your mind.” When I read that last quotation, an old memory from childhood came flashing back to me. In a little one-room elementary school in Ontario, I was the only child with a strong English accent that some of the older boys just loved to hear! One day at recess, I was asked, “How much money do you have, Mary?” Our family was fairly new to Canada and was struggling to make ends meet. However, I told my tormentors, “I have forty dollars in the bank and fifty cents at home,” a barefaced lie, in my thick Norfolk accent. Throughout my adult life, I had been unable to save money until that memory came flooding back — I had lied, so therefore did not deserve to have money. Amazing! I changed the opinion and allowed myself a bank account. Our only limitations are those that we agree to. Time to take a look at which opinions we have that are limiting.

A lifeguard’s view of the world

and unworthy. Fact: I can do. Opinion: I can do anything I set my mind on. So, anything added to a fact is an opinion, either positive or negative. It’s easy to see how these opinions we have actually govern how we look at life, what we experience and how we deal with all that happens to us. Maybe we all need to take a long and impartial look at our opinions. Maybe we all need to start changing some of the opinions we have, and to begin choosing our experience. Incidentally, our beliefs are just opinions. Well, where did they come from? Some of them were obtained as a newborn infant — babies respond very quickly to an adult’s actions, voice and emotional state. As the infant grows, he begins to imitate his parents’ responses to events, he listens to their words and eventually makes decisions on all the information he has gathered. Children born to the same parents tend to grow up with different personalities and opinions, depending to some extent upon what they learn as they mature. Our lives reflect our opinions, even though society tends to tell us that life is something that “happens” to us; those of us who become successful people are able to accept that we happen to life, not the other way around. Let’s take a good look at our opinions and see which of them aren’t working. It’s a bit scary to really look into our minds and change some of the less workable

TAPS seniors use skills

From page 7 The three projects that TAPS seniors, the Krafty Kronys, the Beehive Quilters and Quilts for Kids groups are currently helping the East Kootenay club with are baby bags, lap blankets for dialysis and chemo patients, and sensory aprons. The Krafty Kronys and the quilters have designed and sewn over 30 sensory aprons for distribution to seniors’ care facilities. These aprons are specifically for those

who require something to touch that stimulates their memory. They are works of art that contain bells, zippers, laces, whistles, Velcro and many other things limited only by imagination. Bridget has committed TAPS seniors to making lap blankets for this project and many seniors are working at home, knitting and crocheting. Christmas bags for Crest View Village are also in the works, with quilters making the bags, TAPS seniors supply-

ing the gifts and Telus ambassadors donating the fabric for this project. Seniors using their skills, being productive and contributing to their own valuable program — what a win-win situation! Thank you, East Kootenay Telus ambassadors and our supportive community. Terry Nowak is an outreach worker with the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors.

Jeff Morris, an award-winning singer-songwriter from Edmonton, recently announced his 2011 Western Canadian Tour. The 26-day trip across BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan includes a stop at Creston’s Snoring Sasquatch on Aug. 8. “I’ve never been through Creston before but I’ve heard good things,” said Morris. “Hopefully my music will earn me a loyal Creston following.” The 28-year-old folk singer is touring in support of his debut album, Original Songs On A Borrowed Guitar. The album was released in March of last year to glowing reviews, and received six nominations at the 2011 Edmonton Music Awards, including best album, best single, best solo artist, best folk artist and best live performance. Morris’ music has garnered a lot of attention from music critics in Edmonton and has drawn comparisons to the likes of Jack Johnson, John Mayer and Brett Dennan. “Jeff Morris cites Jack Johnson as an influence, but I think the local barkeep has even more potential than Hawaii's surfing folkie,” said Sandra Sperounes, music writer for the Edmonton Journal. Morris’ entire debut album can be heard online at Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30. Tickets are $10 in advance at Kingfisher Books and Black Bear Books, and $12 at the door.

Does a leisurely drive along Kootenay Lake sound like a good idea? Then why not spend the day and take in the East Shore portion of Art Walk. The first of the East Shore galleries north of Wynndel is the Flickering Goddess Soap and Candles, where Laurie Rhead has her fine display of soaps and candles. Next along Highway 3A in Gray Creek is the Emerald East Cliff Gallery, which has on view the sculpture, paintings and metal work of Geri Gomola.

Lower Kootenay Band

plays an important role in the Creston Valley Who we are

Since time immemorial the Yaqan Nukiy people have lived in the Lower Kootenay area. The name Yaqan Nukiy literally means “where the rock stands” and refers to an important place in the Creston Valley. Today the Lower Kootenay Band is located on approximately 6,000 acres of land in the Creston Valley. We have 212 citizens with about half living within the main community, which is located four kilometres south of Creston on Simon Road. The main community includes 52 houses, an administration complex with gymnasium and arbour, a ball diamond, playground and cemetery. The people are entrepreneurs, students, athletes, artisans, guides, tradesman, professionals, craftsmen, hunters and fishermen. LKB also hosts the annual Yaqan Nukiy Traditional Powwow on the May long weekend in conjunction with the Creston Valley Blossom Festival. We are one of five Canadian and two U.S.A. communities which form the Ktunaxa Nation (pronounced “k-too-nah-ha”). The other four Canadian communities formed the Upper Kootenay portion of the Ktunaxa and are all located in British Columbia. The communities include Aqisknuk First Nation near Windermere, Aqam near Cranbrook, Shuswap near

Invermere and Tobacco Plains near Grasmere. The U.S.A. bands are called tribes and include the Confederated Salish Kootenai near Elmo, Mont., and Kootenay Tribe of Idaho at Bonners Ferry. The Ktunaxa traditional territory covers approximately 70,000 square kilometres (27,000 square miles) in southeastern British Columbia and historically included parts of Alberta, Montana, Washington and Idaho.

Culture & language The traditional knowledge and language sector is responsible for the language and traditions. These are being maintained through curriculum in the school and through teachings by elders and knowledgeable individuals of the community. The Yaqan Nukiy are well known for their buckskin hides and travelling throughout the waterways in the sturgeon nosed canoe. We speak the Ktunaxa language, which is a unique language that cannot be linked to any other native language, neighbour or otherwise.

“As chief, I recognize the importance of Lower Kootenay working together with the Town of Creston and Regional District of Central Kootenay.” — Chief Jason Louie, in his 2011 inaugural address

Creston Valley Advance Thursday, August 4, 2011 13

The Yaqan Nukiy Vision Statement “A stable, independent, self-governing authority, providing principled leadership to a dynamic community of caring, healthy citizens, from a secure resource base.”

Chief & Council The community is governed by a chief and four councillors, who are elected positions for a term of four years. The Yaqan Nukiy people have given the elected council the authority to represent them and to act on their behalf in seeking funding support for the community of Lower Kootenay. The chief and council have scheduled meetings twice a month to conduct community business. They also hold community meetings bi-monthly to seek community input and report to the citizens.

Yaqan Nukiy School The chief and council have also formed the Lower Kootenay Band Education Society to operate the Yaqan Nukiy School program. Yaqan Nukiy School employs eight persons and offers classes for kindergarten to Grade 7.

Administration building & programs The Lower Kootenay Band administration is responsible for carrying out the programs and services for the community, similar to other governments. There are currently five sectors of the administration which include corporate services, social development, traditional knowledge and language, lands and resources, and economic development. The chief and councillors each hold a sector portfolio which they are responsible for. All of our departments are engaged with the Ktunaxa Nation council for delivery of programs and services. The corporate services sector is the largest department and is responsible for the day to day operation of the community. They are also responsible for housing and financial administration, including accounting, FN GST, taxation, payroll, estates and membership.

The public works department services the community infrastructure including the buildings, roads and the community water and sewer systems. The corporate sector also develops and implements the community’s emergency response plan. The lands and resource sector oversees the management of approximately 6,000 acres located on eight separate reserves in the Creston Valley, located from the Canada-U.S. border to Wynndel, primarily along the Kootenay River. We have a community plan which includes a land use plan. These plans, developed through community input, identify the intended land use which includes 4,000 acres managed for agriculture and 1,100 acres managed for wetland conservation. The agriculture land is currently leased to local producers and is utilized for timothy hay, cereal crop production and livestock grazing. The wetlands were established by Ducks Unlimited in the 1970s and are currently managed in a partnership with Yaqan Nukiy Wetlands Friendship Society, which is comprised of Lower Kootenay and Creston Valley citizens. This sector is also responsible for the community interests and environmental stewardship within the Yaqan Nukiy traditional lands. We are committed to working closely with government, NGOs and the public and private sector to ensure the stewardship of the environment within our traditional lands. The social sector delivers programs and services within the community such as social assistance, child and family services, health services, homecare, elder services and family support. The mandate of the Lower Kootenay Band economic sector is to have a self-sufficient and sustainable local economy that meets all of the community’s economic needs, is grounded in the community’s cultural values, provides its community and other local residents with ample business, economic and personal development opportunities and has a reputation for business credibility in the local area and beyond. We are engaged in building the economy of the Creston Valley through external relationships with local farmers, local and regional sawmills and other stakeholders.

New twist for museum’s old-fashioned tea CRESTON MUSEUM

After volunteering for two years as the president of the Creston Art Club, Leeder was eager to get back into the studio and paint. “I wanted to work on a project that would inspire me, challenge me, motivate me and keep me focused,” Leeder said. “Creating a series, something new for me, with the intent to exhibit it, would serve that purpose. I also wanted help a cause or event that I would also enjoy supporting. As I collect tea-

The Old-Fashioned Tea is back at the Creston Museum — but this year, there’s a special twist. Creston artist Laura Leeder is teaming up with the Creston Museum this year, and will be presenting a special art exhibit during the museum’s tea. Even better, her artwork features the teacups that will be used during the tea.

Women Are Doing It That’s right – by age 50, women are making screening mammograms part of their regular health routine - once every two years. Women ages 40-79 can book at the BC Cancer Agency’s Screening Mammography mobile service coming to:

pots and teacups and use them almost daily, that led to approaching the Creston Museum to exhibit at the OldFashioned Tea.” In January, Leeder borrowed a dozen of the museum’s teacups, and has spent the intervening time creating watercolour paintings of them. The original paintings will be on display during the OldFashioned Tea on Aug. 13. Prints and cards made from the paintings are available for sale in the museum’s gift shop. Of course, all the things that make the Old-Fashioned Tea the annual favourite it is will be there: the dainty sandwiches and sweets, staff in period costumes, and some special visitors from the past. It all takes place on the museum’s shaded patio on Aug. 13. As usual, there will be three seatings, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m., and reservations are highly recommended.

Ethel’s Teacup — A Family Treasure by Laura Leeder.

The tea and art show is $8 per person ($4 for children six and under), and your ticket gives you a chance to win one of the paintings on display,

valued at $130. For more information, contact the museum at 250-4289262 or

are university students. “They are working to save money for their education and a bad harvest is just as much a disaster for them as it is for us,” she said. Wloka has had musicians, budding scientists, chefs, doctors, dentists, teachers and counselors working in her orchard. The younger ones are usually working on their undergrad degree but some of her returning pickers have moved on to work on their masters or their PhD. “We also get young people who have travelled all over the world, either with their families or on their own,” Wloka said. “I have always believed travel is an education in itself and I am so happy so many of my workers are able to visit other countries.” Since many of Wloka’s pickers have a first language other than English, Wloka tries to post all safety signs in English, French and Spanish. “Besides the safety factor — since in an emergency people respond faster if the sign is in their own language — it makes my workers feel a little bit more at home,” Wloka said. And in some ways it does become their home. “They are just like family,” said Wloka’s husband, Frank. Wloka hopes people in Creston also welcome these vital workers. “Remember, some of these young people are just out of high school and sometimes away from home for the first time,” she said. “A smile and a friendly greeting will show that you value their contribution to this community and want them to come back.”

Mini golf tournament raises funds for PAWS PET ADOPTION AND WELFARE SOCIETY

The Pet Adoption and Welfare Society’s summer fundraising event, a mini-golf tournament held at Cheyenne Creek Mini-Golf, was held on June 18. Although the day began cloudy and cool, as have the majority of days this year, the temperature warmed up, the sun made

an appearance and the rain held off to allow a successful, funpacked event for all who participated. As well as the normal mini golf course challenges, PAWS added some unique and different tests to the mix at a number of holes, including using the putter as a pool cue, wearing oven mitts, standing on one foot, and sitting on an exercise ball!

Signe Miller won a toaster oven for ladies low score, Wayne Richens low score earned him a Coleman cooler and for youth low score, Erin Collison received a gift certificate for a movie rental. Great prizes were awarded to golfers with the lowest scores on the extra skill-testing sections as well. At the end of the tournament, everyone enjoyed hot-

dogs and beverages while the winners of PAWS barrow of fun raffle were drawn. The first prize of a wheelbarrow stocked with barbecue fixings was won by Lawrence Rivers, the second prize wooden planters and Morris Flowers gift certificate went to Chris Olsen and the third prize, a handmade afghan and pillows, was won by

Colten Andruchiw. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who came out to support PAWS and enjoyed a day filled with prizes, fun, and laughter. An extra special PAWS thank you to the wonderful host for this event, beautiful Cheyenne Creek Mini Golf!

FWCP warns of invasive algae species in Kootenay Lake FISH AND WILDLIFE COMPENSATION PROGRAM

The scientific name is Didymosphenia geminata — or just didymo for short — but its more commonly used, and perhaps fitting, term is simply “rock snot”. Its presence has been confirmed in the Kootenay Lake watershed, and its unwelcome arrival has the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural resource operations (FLNRO) and the Fish and Wildlife Compensation (FWCP) asking anglers and other water users to take extra care in cleaning gear in an effort to slow its spread. In early May, while monitoring the Gerrard rainbow trout spawning run at the outlet of Trout Lake, FLNRO habitat technician Terry Anderson floated over a mat of didymo covering approximately at least 400 square meters. “We know that it is already in the Salmo and Columbia rivers,” said Anderson, “but this is the first time we have confirmed it in the Kootenay Lake watershed on such a significant scale.”

Some basic actions will help reduce the spread of didymo: avoid using felt bottoms on waders, clean all gear (waders, boats nets, etc.) between water bodies, preferably with a light bleach solution, and allow the gear to dry thoroughly. “It only takes one cell on your gear to move didymo from one system to another,” added Anderson, “so it’s imperative that we all make an effort to slow its spread.” Didymo is species of algae that can either be free floating or attached to rocks, gathering together to make gelatinous blobs or thick mats, thus earning its “rock snot” moniker. Under water, these mats can resemble thick shag-pile carpeting, ranging in colour from pale yellow-brown to white, and if they get washed-up on shore or the water level drops these dried mats often get confused with dried toilet paper. “In some circumstances, thick mats of didymo can restrict water flow, and therefore affect oxygen levels in fish spawning and rearing areas,” said senior fisheries biologist

James Baxter with the FWCP, a joint partnership between BC Hydro, the province of B.C., and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. “It can also cause gill irritations and, if the didymo reaches high enough concentrations, it can even displace some fish species.” Didymo is not thought to adversely affect drinking water, except for colouration and odour. Swimmers have reported feeling itchy when downstream of heavy concentrations. Although didymo is native to some parts of central North America and is often found in clean and unpolluted streams and rivers, it is considered an invasive species here, and its spread over the last 10 years has biologists concerned. It was first discovered in B.C. on Vancouver Island in 1989. “One theory is that the spread of Didymo is connected with increased ultra violet light levels,” said Baxter. “There is no connection with the Kootenay Lake nutrient restoration program, given the fact that this latest discovery was made well upstream.”

If anyone sees large mats of didymo, they are asked to report them to the aquatic invasive species co-ordinator at Ministry of Environment by emailing Matthias.Herborg@ For more information on the FWCP, visit

Amendment of a Pest Management Plan Pest Management Plan No: 108-0120-2010/2015 Applicant: Canadian Pacific Railway, 700 - 401-9th Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta,T2P 4Z4 (250) 612-0324 Agent: SMC Consulting, 1582 Lawrence Avenue, Penticton, BC V2A 3C1 Tel: (250) 770-0476 The purpose of the proposed amendment request is to control wood decay in a timber bridge. The bridge is located at Mile 83.2 (over Kootenay Lake), near Sirdar. The common and trade name of the pesticide proposed for use under this amendment are chloropicrin (Timber Fume). The application method will consist of manually inserting capped vials containing a pre-measured portion of Timber Fume into drilled holes in timbers. The degradable cap on the vial breaks down over time and temperature (within the drill holes of the wood being treated), allowing the liquid Timber Fume to enter the gas phase and move into the surrounding wood. All holes will be plugged with tight fitting treated wood plugs following treatment. This ensures that the Timber Fume does not enter a body of water or other environmentally sensitive area. Drill holes will be located at least 60 cm above the high water mark. The duration of the proposed amendment to the PMP is from April 15, 2010 to April 15, 2015. A copy of the proposed amendment to the Pest Management Plan and a map of the proposed treatment area may be obtained by contacting the Agent (SMC Consulting) listed above. “A person wishing to contribute information about the proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the amendment to the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant (c/o SMC Consulting,Agent, at the address listed above) within 30 days of the publication of this notice”
