Child artists signing Oodles of Doodles BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff


When was the last time you had the chance to have a book signed by 10 kids? Probably about the same time you came across a book that 10 kids helped to produce.

Oodles of Doodles was produced in the fall by children’s art teacher and graphic artist Brandy Dyer. “In September, my students at Art Classes for Kids worked very hard creating doodles and scribbles for a book that I was producing,” she said. See ART, page 3

Wolf concert

From page 1 Bringing together members of his family is Wolf’s chance to see his kids and help show off the many talents of his children. And his mother. “Every year for as long as I can remember we’ve put on shows in our living room,” he laughed. “I thought, ‘Why keep this just for ourselves?’ ” So, on Dec. 28, Prince Charles Theatre will play host to three generations of the Wolf family. “The kids are all professional players and singers,” he said. “It seems like a shame to keep all this talent in our living room.” Wolf’s two sons, Kyle and Shade, are winding down after a second successful cross-Canada tour with their band, Hard Honey. “Hard Honey has just released a single that’s getting lots of radio play,” Wolf said. “The group is now working on a video and their album is being produced by a Juno award winner.” Joining Lorn’s boys will be Kyle’s girlfriend, Sara Jane, a runway model who has a contract with Holt Renfrew. “She’s a popular Sunshine Girl and she’s a terrific singer, too,” he said. Rounding out the family’s youth contingent is Lorn’s daughter, Zarria Storm, who is taking advantage of the holiday season to take a break from her athletic activities. She is a track and field star who holds two Canadian records in the heptathlon (100-metre hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 metre, long jump, javelin throw and 800-metre race) and is attending Sacramento State University on an athletic scholarship. “She represented Canada in the Pan Am Games and recently won gold in the Western Canada track and field championships. Now, she

has just been added to the Canadian Olympic development team. “And she sings like a bird,” the proud father added. Helping to provide some age balance to the concert will be Lorn’s mom, Joyce McKearney, who makes her home in Creston. “She taught me my first chords on the guitar,” he said. Joyce was also her son’s spark for his love of fantasy writing, telling him bedtime stories that she made up as she went along. The Lorn Wolf Family Christmas Concert will feature a wide range of music. “We will be playing the 12 best Christmas songs of all time (in his opinion),” he laughed. “There will be some original Christmas music, too, and rock and roll and country music.” Wolf, who has become a popular fixture at the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market, is also fitting in a book signing event on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Black Bear Books. Writing is well underway for the sequel to The Woodcutter. “I’m writing at double time,” he said. “It’s going fast because it’s all written in my mind. I just have to get it down on paper.” Tickets for the Dec. 28 concert are selling well, he said. They are available at Black Bear Books and Kingfisher Used Books and, at what just might be a first for Creston, VIP tickets are also available. “VIP tickets include a copy of The Woodcutter or my CDs, and preferred front row seating,” he said. Concert tickets are $20 and VIP tickets are $50. “There is going to be so much talent on the stage,” he said. “People are going to get their money’s worth.”

(From left) Creston-Kootenay Foundation chair Larry Brierley accepts a $140,000 bequest from Dorothy McEachern’s close friends, Alex (also her will’s executor) and Nicole Nilsson, and Colin Sharp, husband of McEachern’s niece, Mary-Lou.

Bequest gives CKF $140,000 BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Creston Kootenay Foundation’s Quality of Life for Seniors Fund is $140,000 richer, thanks to a bequest by Dorothy McEachern. Combined with that donation, McEachern, who died June 6 at 97, has contributed nearly $300,000 to Creston Valley organizations, helping with the Irvine House women’s shelter, Creston Valley Hospice Society, the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors and the Creston and District Society for Community Living’s Therapeutic Riding Program. Her decision to leave the money

I'm pretty sure their parents were wondering what the heck I was up to and questioned whether or not this book was going to come together in the end!” The book did come together, though, with the generous support of the Creston and District Credit Union, which paid for the production costs. That support means that all proceeds from the book’s sales go

to the Creston-Kootenay Foundation (CKF) grew out of a dilemma that faces many seniors. “Often, they don’t know where to put it,” said Alex Nilsson, executor of McEachern’s will. She was born in Saskatchewan, became a schoolteacher, and then married a minister and lived all over Canada. After contacting the CKF in 2005, she began contributing with a $75,000 donation to the Palliative Care Fund (now the Quality of Life for Seniors Fund). “Her interest and concern for people was impressive and refreshing,” said CKF chair Larry Brierley. The foundation invests funds and

donates interest generated to Creston Valley non-profits and charities. “Our goal is to have assets under our management of over $1 million,” said Brierley. “This moves us closer to that goal.” The donation to the CKF was encouraged by her niece, Mary-Lou, and Mary-Lou’s husband, Colin, both active volunteers in the community, who realized that having her funds overseen by the CKF would provide more help to the community than a onetime donation of $140,000 to specific groups. “This still accomplishes what she wanted to do to provide for the needs of people,” said Colin.

Did you know that creativity promotes independence, communication, courage, and selfesteem?” Designed for use by children from seven to 12, Oodles of Doodles makes a great stocking stuffer that will help bring out the creativity in any child.

John Kettle at the Dec. 8 Regional District of Central Kootenay board meeting, which saw him returned as board chair.

Kettle back as RDCK chair Nelson Star

Area B director John Kettle was returned unopposed Dec. 8 for a second one-year term as chair of the Regional District of Central Kootenay. Kettle said the board faces a “challenging year” in which it will have to “focus fundamentally on core services and watch what we’re doing financially.” He added he was pleased to announce that provincial approval for their resource recovery plan is imminent. “The letter is coming,” he said and expressed “sincere thanks” to staff. Portions of the $14 million plan, unveiled last year, have already been implemented. It called for a complete overhaul of how the regional district handles waste, including moving the transfer station off the Nelson waterfront and implementing a more efficient pick-up system. The five-year plan is expected to pay for itself through reduced operating costs. The new board — which only has two new faces, in Area I director Andy Davidoff and Silverton director Leah Main — was sworn in by retired judge Stewart Enderton, the RDCK’s solicitor until his appointment to the bench in 1982.

Enderton recalled that in the regional district’s early days, administrator Gene Bodard worked half-time for $300 per month. “We’re trying to get back there,” Kettle quipped.

I was looking forward to writing an overdue column about how ridiculous the recently passed omnibus crime bill is, considering that the violent crime rate in Canada has been dropping for many years and that the policy of jailing huge numbers of people has been discredited by judges and legislators in, of all places, Texas. I also wanted to comment on what a knob the prime minister is for committing more than $50 billion to buy fighter jets and build ships, including some to be used for “defence� purposes, when he constantly preaches the need for fiscal restraint. And I also wanted to point out how absurd it seemed to me when the judge ruling on the legality of polygamy laws stated that women and children in polygamous relationships are more subject to harm than those who aren’t. He failed to note that women and children who reside with an adult male are also very likely, statistically, to be put in harm’s way more than when there is no male in the picture. It’s easy to find topics to grump about. But then on Sunday afternoon, Angela and I attended the Blossom Valley Singers concert, Singing (in the) Christmas Tree(s). My enthusiasm for political and judicial topics dropped like a rock. For years we have attended the Singing Christmas Tree concerts presented in the United Church, enjoying each one. But this presentation, moved by necessity to Prince Charles Theatre, was, without the slightest exaggeration, spectacular. As I left the building I commented to others that I felt like I’d been watching a PBS Christmas special.

All should shop locally

To the Editor: (Re: “Creston a great place to shop”, Dec. 1 Advance, page 7) If you have not yet read Ann Day’s column in the Dec. 1 issue, please do. Sure, I know there are bargains and savings to be made if one treks off to Wal-Mart in Cranbrook, or to Bonners Ferry or Coeur d’Alene. And I also know that every penny spent out of the Creston district is a penny lost to our own merchants and businessmen, and in time, a loss to all of us, directly or indirectly. Just take a walk down our main street and count the number of vacant shops. It is alarming! To quote Ann Day, “Local businesses are the bones of community and part of how Creston’s identity and uniqueness is maintained. … Consider supporting your neighbours with your spending this year and not some head office in Toronto or New York.” Excellent advice — let’s not be penny wise and pound foolish. The town crew has done a beautiful job of decorating the town for the Christmas season — it is a treat to drive around and admire the lights and decorations, truly attractive and festive.

One per cent won election

To the Editor: Lorne Eckersley is being disingenuous when he suggests that Joe Snopek “maybe ... didn’t really want the mayor’s job.” Easy to prognosticate after the fact (where were Lorne’s opinions before the election?) but it is stretching credibility to suggest that someone who has served as mayor in addition to several years as councillor (12 years in all), paid his deposit, and mounted a campaign, would throw his hat in the ring without serious intention. He then goes on to say that Toyota “campaigned as though he was supporting someone else.” Did he not

Opinion Line

want to win either? What is this supposed to mean? That he who did not want to win the most would win? Lorne suggests that Joe should not have said that he did not belong to a service club and then twists this into a suggestion of non-participation, which in Joe’s case, is a non-issue. In case Lorne didn’t get it, Joe was indicating that he represented all of the people, not just those who belonged to exclusive “vested interest” service clubs. Eckersley’s following notations about the many mayors who belonged to these clubs indicate exactly that Creston municipal politics has been locked in the grip of the business elite, and there are few councillors who are not aligned to a self-serving agenda. Pure altruism, I don’t realistically think. I know of journalists who do not vote because they feel it would taint their objectivity, and I know of others who trumpet their preferences before an election. Mr. Eckersley appears to be content with expressing his approbation of the status quo after the fact, a rather lame academic exercise. Yes, Joe’s profile was not as eyecatching as the six-foot signs of the opposition, but could this have something to do with resources rather than lack of civic interest? And has anyone besides me wondered why municipal politics seem to be exempt from guidelines applied to provincial and federal politics, guidelines such as clear cut and published campaign expenses and sources, transparent conflict of interest guidelines that prevent elected officials from being in a position to benefit from municipal decisions, guidelines preventing councillors from engaging in commerce with developments within city limits? A following column by Peter Hepher “Voters, leaders must support change”, Nov. 24 Advance) explained this far more eloquently that I can, or for that matter, Lorne Eckersley. Joe did not lose the election because of lack of civic interest. He, like anyone in the forums who expressed a broad based community concern not conforming to establishment views, had little chance of winning. They, like “your ordinary Joe” were members of the 99 per cent, and, predictably, the one per cent won. Larry A. Ewashen Creston

Other issues need fixing To the Editor: I applaud the ruling by the B.C. Supreme Court on upholding the ban on polygamy; however, I do not see how the continuing harassment of the fundamentalist Mormon community serves the cause of justice. By all means, all persons have the right of protection under the law, and all should live without fear of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. No person should be forced to marry against their will and none should be forced into a marriage-like relationship below the age of consent. No person under the age of 16 is capable of giving consent to marriage or to agree to transportation to a different country without a parent or guardian. Any person who is a member of a community such as Bountiful who desires to leave of their own free will should be provided with social services to help them adapt to a life outside the community. As in the separation of any marriage or divorce, the law should protect the assets of the partners, legally married or not. Child labour laws, worker safety and rights should be protected. The Bountiful community has been in the Creston Valley for a long time. They are not newcomers to the valley. In general, they are law abiding citizens: I do not see them drunk in public, I do not see them causing public disturbances, they do not appear to have domestic disputes requiring the services of the RCMP, and the children appear to be happy, well fed and kept neat and clean. There is no barbed wire or walls around Bountiful. I see many successful businesses operated by these people, and they offer services to the community and spend money in local businesses. I see them as a valuable asset to our community. Their beliefs are different than ours but no more bizarre than some of our respected Christian organizations. They dress different but no more strangely than some members of our community. It is alleged they have multiple wives but many of us have married more than once although we generally discard our previous wives in favour of new relationships. In my opinion, I think we should concentrate on more serious crimes and leave these people alone. See POLYGAMY, page 8

Cardio machines popular at CDCC

Much like your tires, it’s time to rotate our four treadmills in the fitness centre. “But why?” you ask. Interestingly enough, people are drawn to certain treadmills over others even though they are exactly the same model and age. The most popular ones are the outside two, with the southernmost one leading the pack with 6,027 km since we opened in February this year. The total kilometres for all the treadmills for the past 10 months rings in at just over 16,000, and the outermost ones average double the use of the inside two. That’s like running from Creston to Halifax and back twice! As far as the psychology of why people choose certain treadmills over others, we are still doing the investigative journalism. We also have recumbent bikes by the fitness track, which are a stationary bike that you sit comfortably back on. These generate way more kilometres than the treadmills because, obviously, you get where you are going way faster because you are on a bike. Average weekly use

might see 110-160 km on a bike, with one great week ringing in over 2,800 km for both bikes. Fascinatingly enough (assuming you are fascinated or interested in any of this), we had the highest spike immedi-

(It also doesn’t hurt that we have super friendly staff up there…) You should have picked up our new leisure guide from your mailbox this past day or two and the first thing you’ll notice is the new format. Apart from being smaller and more energy efficient, the better paper stock really shows off the photos along with easier-toread fonts. (If I had a nickel every time someone said to me “If only you were from better stock…”) Now we start on the facility guide, which will contain all the regular info for an entire year and then back into the next program guide for the spring. Let us know what you think of the new format, and don’t forget you can also see it online at Neil Ostafichuk is the recreation supervisor at the Creston and District Community Complex.

DVDs on the way out, but still offered at library

What once was the “staff picks” section of new books shelf is no more. Somewhere along the way, either a patron or a staff member noticed how staff picks were done in other libraries and in some bookstores (or what are left of bookstores) and we found something we like better. Staff members were asked what colour they wanted and then given several sheets of stickers of the identified colour with their name added. I have sheets of beautiful yellow stickers and there are green stickers and blue stickers — any other bright colour we could find. We then went around the library putting our stickers on items we enjoyed and think others may, too. Some items have crossed boundaries and have more than one staff sticker. I think Terry Pratchett would be one of these authors, along with the Doc Martin series of DVDs and Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games series in the young adult section of the library. A notice of the change has been put up where the staff picks were formerly located. I have to admit, I didn’t see it coming, at least not this quickly, but DVDs are on their way out. It was only a week or two ago we heard the only video store left in Kelowna was Leo’s, a small independent and wonderful little outlet far away from the strip malls of the highway. The implications to libraries didn’t really occur to me until today when I heard a news report on NPR’s Morning Edition discussing the changes to YouTube and the rapid growth of new networks using YouTube and other digital platforms. You can now watch movies or, to be more precise, pay to watch movies on YouTube. I have been watching television online for some time now — Rick Mercer Report, The Daily Show and

Big Bang Theory, among others — and understand the shift to digital but what I didn’t foresee, and of course it had to happen, was the inevitability that DVDs will go the way of videos, tapes and, soon, CDs. Everything we have in our DVD collection will be available for view online. What will keep DVDs in our library at least for the next little while is that everything will be available online but for a price. There is also Ann Day a border that exists not only a few miles south, but on our Internet. It is not only unbelievable, it is almost impenetrable. Unless a program or movie is broadcast through a Canadian company and you are on this side of the border, just about everything else is unavailable to us. This is far more an obstacle to us than a price on movies online. In the meantime we will keep purchasing those British series as they become available in Canada and most of the series requests that come in from patrons. On that same note and to end, the Kindle and the newest model, the Kindle Fire are still not Canadian library friendly. Due to licensing, you cannot use the Kindle or the newest Kindle Fire to download an ebook in any library in Canada. Ann Day is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

From page 7 We can choose to prosecute if we keep the ban on polygamy and prevent a more serious threat from other groups such as Muslims and other cultures, where polygamy is just another name for a lifetime of slavery and abuse. We tolerate and protect the rights of homosexuals, we permit polyandry, and have become very liberal with our views on how others should live their lives, I am sure we have room in our society for a few hundred Mormon fundamentalists. These people are our friends and neighbours. Along with the other pioneer families, they built this valley. Before those people in Victoria try to “fix” the problem, perhaps they can do something about the high divorce rate, crime, education, health care, unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, gambling addiction and other social ills not apparent in Bountiful. I do not see that we are in a position to offer a better way of life and perhaps we can even learn something from them. Stephen Cox Creston

Thunder Cats follow OT loss with two wins “We definitely didn’t come out and play our best game,” said head coach Brent Heaven. “We put 63 shots on net, but came out really flat.” The Rockies scored two goals in the first period before Jesse Collins scored the Thunder Cats’ first. Starting goalie Tyler Moffatt was pulled after the second goal and backup goalie Michael Hails


The Creston Valley Thunder Cats enjoyed two wins on the weekend in games that followed a Dec. 6 overtime loss to the Columbia Valley Rockies, at the bottom of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s Eddie Mountain Division.

The third period started off well with a Thunder Cats goal by Jovi Fabbri, following a third Rockies goal, but the Creston defence got lazy. “The defence lacked because the goaltending had been good,” Heaven said. “You can’t blame the goaltenders when the 20-man unit is hanging them out to dry.” Two more third-period Rockies goals tied the game 5-5, and the Rockies scored the game-winner at 3:59 in overtime.

Thunder Cats, who were looking for revenge following a Nov. 27 3-1 loss. The Thunder Cats had a strong start, with goals by Darcy Flaherty, Brandon Formosa and Trevor LeBlanc giving them a 3-1 lead by the end of the first period. In the second period, a single Eagles goal was sandwiched between goals by Thunder Cats Scott Swiston and Fabbri (power play), and Formosa and Trevor Hanna scored the game’s final goals in the third period. While Heaven acknowledged the efforts of the game’s scorers, he was also pleased with the work of Collins, who earned the first star position for four assists. “He created so many opportunities offensively for us,” said Heaven. “He made his linemates look really great in that game.” Hails was the game’s third star, after blocking 36 Eagles shots. “He gave us the opportunity to win and that’s what I look for from these guys,” Heaven said. Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Golden Rockets began with a scoreless first period, which Heaven attributed to the five-hour bus ride to Golden. “We came out a little bit flat in first period, but we were able to gets our legs underneath us, especially in the next 40 minutes,” said Heaven. “We had to keep it simple and just play a good road game.” Formosa started the game’s scoring with a goal early in the second period, allowing the Thunder Cats to enter the third period with a 1-0 lead. A power play early in the third period allowed the Rockets to score their first goal, adding their second on a power play with 3:38 left. Heaven chose to pull Hails, an attempt to even the score that paid off. “Dane Birks got a great goal to tie the game for us,” Heaven said. “Getting scored on with four minutes left in game to tie the game can be very defeating and deflating.” Just over two minutes into overtime, a “great end-to-end rush play from Trevor LeBlanc” secured Creston’s win. The Thunder Cats’ four points over the three games brought their total to 35, nine behind the Kimberley Dynamiters and Fernie Ghostriders, currently tied with 44 points. The Golden Rockets are behind the Thunder Cats with 29 points, and the Rockies bring up the rear with five. This weekend, the Thunder Cats host the Dynamiters on Friday, and then visit the Dynamiters on Saturday. “We’re definitely looking to come out and bring out our best effort,” said Heaven. “We’re definitely starting to turn a corner, and hopefully we’re in a position to develop and grow and push for the division on the backside of Christmas break.”

Peewee Bruins place second in home tourney CRESTON VALLEY MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION

The Creston Valley Minor Hockey Association hosted a round robin peewee tournament from Dec. 9-11. Four teams of the East Kootenay league participated: Cranbrook Dodge, Cranbrook Western Roofing, the Kimberley Nitros and the Creston Bruins. On Friday afternoon, the tournament started off with two games. The first game was the Bruins against Cranbrook Dodge. The first period was all Creston, with Alex Blackmore scoring two goals. In the second period, Creston’s Vinson Blackmore scored early and Cranbrook responded by scoring a power-play goal. Creston ended the second period with an unassisted goal from Levi Palmer. The third period was scoreless from Creston and seemed to be from Dodge, too, but with only three

minutes left in the period, they scored, for a final score of 4-2 for the Bruins. The second game on Friday afternoon brought Cranbrook Western Roofing and the Kimberley Nitros to town. The final score was 5-3 for Cranbrook. Saturday morning’s first game was Creston versus Kimberley. The first period was all Creston with two goals, the first scored only two minutes into the period by Justice Samuels Mund and assisted by newcomer Chloe Luke. Then, with 9:12 left in the period, Denek Blackmore got the puck in the net with an unassisted goal. The third period brought about several penalties and two goals. The first goal of the period was scored by Serge Chatwin and assisted by Denek and Alex. Kimberley responded only 14 seconds later with their lone goal by Colton Fox. The Bruins won 3-1. With a quick rest, Kimberley was back on the ice to play Cranbrook Dodge, with Dodge wining 6-3. The fifth game of the tournament was Cranbrook Western Roofing against the home team. Cranbrook’s Codee Klanjscek was the first to score in this game with Creston’s answer brought only a couple minutes later by Jordan Gigliotti with Alex assisting, ending the period with a 1-1 tie. The second period was all Creston, with Mund leading the pack of scorers. Following his lead were Serge Chatwin (two), Alex and Levi Palmer, the score now 6-1 for Creston. Creston dominated the third period. The first to score was an unassisted goal by Chloe. Caytlyn Luke soon followed with her goal sent to her by Chloe and Tyson Steed. The ninth goal was scored by Justice Samuels Mund, his second of the game. With 8:18 left in the game, Western Roofing snuck a goal in. Creston ended the period with a goal set up by Denek and Chatwin for Chloe to score. Creston won the game 10-2. Cranbrook Western Roofing had a quick refuel and recharge, and it was back out onto the ice to play Cranbrook Dodge. A real back-and-forth game between the two Cranbrook teams brought forth an 8-8 tie, with Jacob Sebben of Cranbrook Dodge scoring a hat trick.

Early Sunday morning was a rematch of Saturday night’s game of Cranbrook Western Roofing and Cranbrook Dodge, with the winner advancing to the final game. Cranbrook Dodge won 8-3. The second game Sunday morning started the playoff rounds, with the Bruins against the Nitros. The game was all Creston scoring until six minutes left in the third when Kimberley’s Jack Betts scored their only goal. Creston’s scorers were Alex (two), Chloe, Chatwin, Kenton Blackmore and Steed. With a final score of 7-1, Creston advanced to the final. Playing for third and fourth place in the tournament were Western Roofing and the Nitros. Western Roofing’s Derek Riffel was first to score three minutes into the period, and this would be the only goal of the period. Western Roofing started the second period off with a goal, but Kimberley responded with two more to tie it up. Kimberley would then score two more goals with Western Roofing coming back with only one more scored by Tyler Epp with 41 seconds remaining in the second period. Kimberley’s Nolan Somerset scored the only goal in the third period. With a score of 5-3, Kimberley placed third. The final game of the CVMHA peewee tournament was played Sunday afternoon and saw the home team play against Cranbrook Dodge, which was the first to score with an unassisted goal by Dalton Luce. Creston then responded with an unassisted goal by Alex, for a 1-1 tie by the end of the period. The second period was a nail-biter, a real back-and-forth game with both goalies seeing a lot of rubber. Dodge scored three quick goals for a substantial lead. Creston’s Alex and Palmer then scored two to come within a goal of Cranbrook Dodge, for a final score of 4-3. First place went to Cranbrook Dodge. After each game, a Heart and Hustle Award was presented to an outstanding player on each team as voted by the coaches. Winners were: Cranbrook Dodge: Matt Waurynchuck, Tyson Pighin, Cameron Hewison, Justin Wade, Shayden Johnson. Creston Bruins: Vinson Blackmore, Cole Bright, Caytlyn Luke, Alex Blackmore, Chloe Luke.

Have fun and play hard at the Creston & District Community Complex!

Saturday, Dec 17 2-4pm

Lillian & Denis LaRose, your hosts

Betts, Wilson Hard, Brendan Bird, Nolan Somerset. Cranbrook Western Roofing: Riley Bailey, Codee Klanjscek, Tyler Epp, Deena Riffel, Quinn Robertson. The CVMHA’s tournament was made possible with the support of players and parents, the Creston and District Community Complex staff and officials, and the donations of local businesses. • Creston’s bantam Bruins got a big win at the Cranbrook Rec Plex against a league rival. With plenty of fans on the big ice, the Bruins put on a good show to take a hard-fought 6-5 win over Cranbrook Players Bench. Goalies and Scott Doeleman and Christopher Mulder played an awesome game. Creston opened the scoring and goals were swapped, with Creston maintaining a one- or two-goal lead. Jayden Gigliotti was playing and passing well. Late in the game, with two minutes remaining, Cranbrook pulled their goalie and the game was Creston’s. Abdul Samai took a shot at the empty net but missed by only feet. The icing brought the puck back to Crestons zone but some great defence kept the puck out of the net, and a win for Creston. Earlier in the day, the Bruins travelled to Sparwood to play Elk Valley. Creston’s Owen Blackmore started the game with a first goal, a breakaway going top-shelf. Kristi Blackmore played some awesome defence by holding her own, and Brendan Christianson was having a great game but was taken into the boards with a hit to the head that ended his weekend hockey. Creston finished the game and the next with three defence, and the team hopes for a speedy recovery for Brendan. Elk valley scored next and was riddled with penalties, leading to a player and the coach being ejected from the game. The Bruins’ Otto Blackmore kept hitting the post more than a few times, but could not get the puck past the Elk Valley goalie, and Elk Valley won 4-1. The previous weekend, the team played the Nelson Leafs. The players played exceptionally well, with some solid defense. They passed the puck well and talked to each other to get an 8-4 win. The Bruins’ next game is in Creston on Dec. 17 at 12:30 p.m. against Kimberley.

Sky performing at Sasquatch SASQUATCH ARTS AND MUSIC SOCIETY

Daniel Sky is a singer/songwriter originally from Winnipeg, Man. He has lived in the Rockies, on the Coast and on the Prairies. He has resided in the very musical west end of Toronto since 2008, when he released his debut album, On The Round, produced by David Baxter (Justin Rutledge, Treassa Levasseur). This fall, he released his new record, Spider Milk, produced Derek Downham (the Beauties, Andy Kim) and is enjoying another Canadian tour this fall and winter, including his stop in Creston on Dec. 18. “Spider Milk is an explosive infusion

of a melodic pop sensibility (a la E.L.O.) and a rock ’n’ roll soul reminiscent of the sounds of Elvis Costello and the Traveling Wilburys,” said Sky.


This year, two of Sky’s original compositions will be featured in the Universal Studios film Blue Crush 2, and in 2010 he composed an original theme for an award winning documentary, Las Aguilas Humanas (The Human Eagles). For more, check him out at www. or www.danielsky. Tickets are $10 at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, or $12 at the doors, which open at 7 p.m. The show begins at 8.

The First Creston Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts are enjoying another year of camping, activities and volunteering in the community, with 10 great leaders this year. The Scouts attended an international camp in Jaffrey in September (180 scouts and guides from BC, Montana, Idaho and Alberta) and both Cub Scouts and Scouts had a


great weekend at the high ropes course in Kimberley in October (only â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10 C while flying down the zip-line). One of the major fundraisers for the program are the Scoutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sandbags. Pete and Shauna Banman are major contributors of time, effort and money to this campaign. The Scouts appreciate their supporters: all the scouting families, the Banmans, Craig Redi-Mix and Town of Creston (sand),











. . . . .


Pyramid Building Supplies (work and storage space, and use of their forklifts), local businesses who have purchased the sand bags (Pyramid, Home Hardware Building Centre, 7-Eleven, Esso, Extra Foods and Husky) and the community for supporting their programs. This year over 50 people filled over 1,200 sandbags in about two hours â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there were a lot of great workers with pizza as an incentive.
