One of several empty storefronts in downtown Creston is no more, with Nadan Nessie Gear moving to a new location that gave it a major increase in space. Vacated in late summer by No Boundaries Health and Fitness, the location was perfect for the outdoor store, now in its fourth year, which was in a cramped former restaurant on 10th Avenue. “We’re really pleased with this incredible space,” said Sherri Fowler, who runs the business with her daughter, Vannessa. The new location has not only helped to keep downtown looking busy, but has raised awareness of the store’s existence. “People come in, and they take one look and say, ‘Creston needed a store like this,’ ” Fowler said. Now in its fourth year, Nadan Nessie Gear — the name incorporates the owner’s nickname and that of her deceased brother — continues to offer swim and yoga wear, shoes and hiking boots, and other fitness gear. But the expansion has allowed the store to be stocked with other Canadian-made products, many of which are typically available in larger centres. Some new items come from Cranbrook’s Kootenay Knitting Company, which supplied the 2010 Olympics, and Alberta’s TerraFrog Clothing Corp., which makes fitness wear from recycled pop bottles.

When we do this, we reduce the likelihood of developing stress related illnesses such as hypertension, high blood pressure, obesity, and addiction illnesses. The course at the Creston zendo will explore different types of meditation and talk about stress and how it affects the body. Nowadays, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illnesses. Even though meditation should not be considered a cure by itself, research has shown it to be beneficial for a wide range of health problems. Modern medicine has devel-

Rodeo Hall of Fame inducts Canyon resident

Local News

www.crestonvalleyadvance.ca 3

BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Watching a rodeo, the saddle bronc event may look, well, extreme, to say the least. But the horses don’t mind at all. “They love bucking,” said Duane Bruce. “If they could smile, they would.” And he shares that passion. The 72-yearold Canyon resident has been actively participating in rodeos for most of his life, and was inducted into the “Legends of Rodeo” category of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Hall of Fame on Oct. 22. “When you ride a bucking horse, you get a high,” he said. “When it’s bucking, it gives you a tremendous feeling — you just can’t describe the feeling. “When the gate opens, you’re all alone. It’s your own deal. You keep thinking, I hope the whistle never blows.”

Creston Valley Radio

Bruce’s mastery of the saddle bronc event led him to some thrilling victories early in his career. According to Canadianprorodeohalloffame.com, he made the top 15 in the world in 1963, and claimed the first Canadian Inter-Collegiate Saddle Bronc and All Around Championships in 1970.

(then the National Old Timers Rodeo Association) he came away with second place at the World Old Timers Rodeo in Las Vegas in 1980. The worldwide recognition is a big step up from Bruce’s first big win, at a rodeo in Stettler, Alta., when he was 13 years old — although he couldn’t see anything better at the time, picking up a buckle and $14, plus a $10 prize for the wildest ride. “Twenty-four bucks, man. There probably wasn’t a richer boy in the world.” The next year, he earned $160 in Calgary, then continued to improve his skills until he was named all-around champ at the 1962 Calgary Stampede, one of many rodeos he hoped to place well in after hearing older riders talking about them. “I listened to all the stories and just wanted to be good enough to go to them and ride there,” he said. “There were eight or nine, and you just wanted to be able to get to them.” Bruce did better than that — he won four, and placed second in the others. Competing in rodeo events was “just the thing to do,” said the Donalda, Alta., native, a son of German immigrants. “It gave us a certain amount of income.” Not to mention quality family time — he would practice with both parents and his brother, who constructed a homemade chute to allow realistic practice all year long. “It could be 20 below, and we’d be out there,” he said. “The sun would come out and you’d say, ‘Let’s get on the bucking horses.’ ” And all that practice paid off; Bruce’s brother, Winston, and father, Laurence, are also in Hall of Fame. See INDUCTION, page 5

Duane Bruce in the movies Duane Bruce’s abilities earned him a cherished position, working on several films while he lived in Calgary. He has good memories of his time spent working with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins in Legends of the Fall, Sidney Poitier in A Good Day to Die, and Wilfred Brimley and Ricky Schroeder in Blood River, although his experience dates back to the late 1970s and early 1980s, with the films Chautauqua Girl and Goldenrod. Much of his work involved stunts — as stunt double for Donelly Rhodes, his makeup was so convincing his own mother didn’t recognize him — and in The Jack Bull, starring John Cusack, he also got to experience some Hollywood magic. In one scene, the good guys are sneaking up to the outlaws’ camp, where Bruce is in a sleeping bag — it was shot in the day, but looks like night in the finished product. While it might be expected that the stars would look down on the animal handlers, Bruce said that was far from the case. “They recognize a professional. They recognize us as horsemen because we handle horses. They looked at us as equals with them.” And they were always asking questions. “They see us doing something unconsciously, so it’s probably the right thing to do,” said Bruce. — Brian Lawrence

Thunder Cats enjoy two wins over Fernie Ghostriders BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

After two wins last week, the Creston Valley Thunder Cats pulled farther ahead of the Golden Rockets, who hold fourth place in the Eddie Mountain Division of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. With 41 points (prior to a postpress time game last night), the Thunder Cats are 11 points ahead of the Rockets, eleven behind the Kimberley Dynamiters and 13 behind the Fernie Ghostriders, whom they beat in two successive games on Dec. 28 and 31. In their first game after a Christmas break, the Thunder Cats visited Fernie for a game that they won 5-3. “We were able to come out and play a solid 60-minute game,” said head

coach Brent Heaven. “We were quite disciplined and didn’t allow Fernie to get under our skin.” At 5:53, Mark Ferguson scored the game’s first goal for the Thunder Cats, with a Fernie goal following with 23 second left. Trevor Forward and Trevor LeBlanc (power play) gave the Thunder Cats a 3-2 lead heading into the third period, which saw one Fernie goal and Thunder Cats goals by Jesse Collins and Scott Swiston (empty net). On Saturday, the Ghostriders visited Creston, and “we came out a little bit slow,” said Heaven. “They came out to an early lead on us.” With only a single Thunder Cats goal by Formosa, Fernie had a 3-1 lead after the first period. “I had a good chat with the boys about consistency and what we expect of them,” said Heaven. “They they played

our best period of hockey this season.” Second-period goals by Brock Ward and Jovi Fabbri tied the score 3-3, which lasted through the third period. The first overtime period was scoreless, but the Thunder Cats victory was earned by Jordan Johnson, who “pretty much dominated the whole shift,” and scored the game-winner. This weekend, the Thunder Cats host Spokane on Friday, before heading to Golden on Sunday. Both games will give the Thunder Cats a chance to prove themselves. “We’re looking forward getting right at it,” said Heaven. “We feel we can win on any given night.” And that will bode well for their post-season presence. “We’re just looking to get better and better every week and get ready for playoffs,” said Heaven.

Induction hasn’t changed Bruce

From page 3 Bruce and his siblings began riding at an early age — they were the family’s only means of transportation when he was young, and they even rode them to school (and then raced them home after). “We had lots of horses to ride,” he recalled. “I don’t remember the first time getting on.” Despite his accomplishments, Bruce was unable Brian Lawrence photo to support a family on rodeo income alone — it’s Duane Bruce’s plaque and belt buckle recognizing not the most lucrative his place in the the Canadian Professional Rodeo work, even for one of the Hall of Fame. best in the world — so while living in Calgary, he went to work ethic, not just genetics, that college to get into the heating trade, earned him his place in the rodeo eventually bringing the business to world—and that got started as a the Creston Valley, when he and his child, when he was a member of the wife (now deceased) moved to 4-H Club, raising a calf.

A shift in course needed

For the last several months Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been watching the federal political scene with fascination, wondering when the pushback will come against a government acting more like one might expect in North Korea. And from where that resistance will come. I thought it might happen when the ludicrous spending on military hardware was announced, at a time when the very same government was paying lip service to debts, deficits and the size of government. And I was almost certain it would finally arise when the omnibus crime bill, certainly one of the most outrageous pieces of legislation ever foisted off on the Canadian people, came before Parliament. When Republican legislators and judges warned Prime Minister Harper and his government that the Texan obsession with jailing criminals had been both a financial and social disaster, Canadians might reasonably have thought that a sober second look might have been in order. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be. It seems not to matter that violent crime has been declining for a couple of decades now, or that there is overwhelming evidence that the costs of jailing criminals are a too often a depressingly bad use of public funds. The Conservative Party strategy has been to create fear among Canadians (our streets are rife with danger, we need to arm ourselves to defend â&#x20AC;&#x153;our Canadian Arcticâ&#x20AC;?, we need to be prepared to go to war against any country that the NATO and U.S. brain trust takes umbrage against, etc.) and then to promise that it, and only it, can protect us. Make no mistake about it, Harper has moved quickly on these fronts because, in

the absence of a credible opposition leader, he and his party pretty much have carte blanche when it comes to proceeding with its absurd, costly agenda.

Progressive Conservative member and activist, I expected the party to champion individual freedoms, to minimize the government interference in day-to-day life, to be fiscally responsible, to create legislation based on sound, rational thinking and planning and not ideological nonsense, to make decisions in the best interests of the nation and not just its own survival and, oh, yeah, to be a promoter of peace and not a participant in war. Is it Lorne Eckersley unreasonable to think that maybe Conservatives today And how do they sell their methto return those values and demand ods of governing (which include limit- that their government do the same? ing debate, doing as much business as We are, based on what has happossible in secret and by keeping tight pened in Ottawa, on the fast track to reins on their caucus members) to the becoming the worst of what we public?

Get ready for relay

To the Editor: The Creston Valley has hosted the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life for 10 years. The event has consistently provided the community with an opportunity to come together and support those battling cancer, as well as to show support to people who have lost loved ones to the disease. It is a day of solidarity against cancer. It is an event that happens because many volunteers come together with a united goal. These volunteers do not require any special skills or talents — they simply care enough to make it happen. This year marks the renewal of Relay for Life. Many who have volunteered countless hours over the past 10 years would like to “pass the torch” and new volunteers are needed. Cancer’s greatest ally is apathy — if we stop caring, cancer wins. I know that: • the residents of Creston Valley have not stopped caring; • those who have participated have experienced the “community hug” that happens at a Relay for Life event; • the funds raised change lives for the better by providing programs including the Cancer Information Service, the Cancer Connection Peer Support program, the financial support program, welcoming lodges to stay in while undergoing treatment away from home, and Camp Goodtimes for kids and teens; • the funds raised save lives by educating citizens in cancer prevention strategies, advocating to government for healthy public policies, and by funding cutting edge research; and • many people, each doing a small task, can make a really big difference. Please help us continue the tradition of caring in Creston Valley, by volunteering for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Please contact me at 250489-8695 or bprice@bc.cancer.ca and find out about the variety of ways the relay can use your help (whether you can spare one hour or 50).

employer/government’s interest. I have been involved with public sector bargaining for many years, and what I see now I would never refer to as bargaining. The first thing we need to realize is that all these employers’ associations were put in place by governments past and present to act as buffers for the politicians. The associations get to be the heavies and the ministers and deputy ministers claim that bargaining is out of their hands and we need to do what the boards want. Your statement, “Kids are affected by the labour dispute. The current strike is having a negative impact in our schools and on students,” is what I call rhetoric. What strike? What labour dispute? If it wasn’t for reading the paper and watching the news, I wouldn’t even know there was a dispute. This is also the opinion of the Supt. Jeff Jones, as is indicated in his statement on page five of the Dec. 8 Advance, that as the dispute enters its fourth month, the public seems blissfully unaware. I have personal interest in the quality of education for children in this district. The volleyball tournaments continue, extra help during lunch and after school is still happening and there can be interviews with the teachers anytime I want. I know where any one of the children stands academically because of having direct contact with the teachers. There was a dance in December at Prince Charles Secondary School. So again I ask, what job action? Just to add to this, it is 10 a.m. on a Saturday morning and I just received an email from a teacher to deal with an educational issue. Apparently this teacher is not aware of the strike either or maybe is more concerned with the child’s success than the employers’ association. I feel that our Teachers should be commended for continuing to do what is best for our students. The teachers, to their credit, are not letting their frustrations get the best of them. They are continually showing their commitment and caring through these trying times. One final word: It is time that the school board and the BCPSEA stop wasting energy and resources trying to make the teachers look bad, and do some real bargaining, They need to stop bargaining through the media and come up with some proposals that will be acceptable to all parties. When Jones says, “It boggles my mind that people in the community don’t know teachers are on strike,” it again proves to me that the teachers are doing what they need, to make sure the students educational needs are met.

Joy’s loyalty is uncertain Auditor will find conflicts

To the Editor: (Re: “Joy doing what’s best for students”, Dec, 8 Advance, page 7) Some of Mel Joy’s points I feel a need to address. As chair of the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA), who are you representing, us in Creston or the 60 other boards around the province? What would you do if the majority of the 60 boards wanted to support a position that would not be in Creston’s best interest, be chair of the employers’ board or be a Creston school trustee? What hat would you wear, and whose interests do you take seriously? You state, “I pride myself in not being an advocate for special interest groups or unions.” Unfortunately, you left out the employers’ association. Do you not consider them as a special interest group? If we are to believe that the union is a special interest group surely the BCPSEA must also be considered a special interest group, recognizing that the union is looking out for the employees’ interests and employers’ association is looking after the

To the Editor: (Re: “Who’s your mommy?” Dec. 8 Advance, page 6) In his column, Lorne Eckersley says, “Nonsense to have a new auditing function look at the way municipalities spend our tax dollars!” Why, it is brilliant! If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. Most elected officials only get publicly questioned for a few weeks prior to a civic election. During this time, issues come to the forefront that often the general populace does not have knowledge about. I know from running as a candidate that during this time a lot of people brought to my attention partially veiled issues and paperwork to prove it. Eckersley talks about it being OK because the town books are audited. Yes, they are audited. Paperwork given to me shows the 2010 books were audited by

Gadicke and Minichiello, when Judy Gadicke is a town councillor. Hopefully, the new auditing function catches that conflict of interest. There were other conflicts of interest brought to my attention as well; hopefully, the auditing function will catch those. Then there is the whole equitable taxation collection, or lack of it. It was brought out by Mayor Toyota at an election forum that the new Ramada Inn gets a five-year tax break, and another five-year 50 per cent exemption. Toyota also pointed out that the town was not going to get that money, anyway, if this was not developed. And, as I pointed out to Toyota at the forum, “You’re not going to get any new development taxation money from anyone, unless you collect it.” I talked to a few hospitality businesses around downtown — they are not getting a tax break, and they are struggling. It would probably really help them to not have to pay taxes for five years, and then get a cut rate for the next five years. It is hard enough for businesses downtown to compete with the new businesses at the edge of town. Within two blocks in our downtown core there are seven empty buildings — they probably couldn’t afford the taxes. Or, if they were renting, the rent was too high because of the taxes. Maybe the new auditing function will catch that. They will probably realize that it is always more economical to help businesses that are already around than start new ones. And, helping to keep these already established businesses around, these businesses might be able to employ people! Maybe the auditing function will even point to using Pioneer Villa — a building already there, instead of trying to build a new one, which will have to go into debt to be built and will probably then ask for a tax break. Hopefully the auditing function will also catch that, comparing apples to apples, Creston homeowners apparently pay more taxes than Kelowna homeowners. The auditing function will probably realize it is because of lack of some people paying taxes in our community. There are more issues, but hopefully the new auditing function will catch those discrepancies, point them out and work on changing them. Rhonda Barter Creston

Best wishes for new year To the Editor: A warm hello from Markham, Ont., to all the wonderful people of Creston! It’s hard to believe it’s already been six months since I left Creston to come back home. Although I only lived there a few short years, I appreciated the uniqueness of all Creston has to offer, and most of all the people and the friendliness of everyone. I developed deep friendships that I will cherish forever. But until I was preparing to leave, I honestly had no idea how many true friends I have there. I thought you were simply nice people whom I had the pleasure of serving and working with at the golf course and at Stavros. I had incredible neighbours, and I met many great people going about my day-to-day business. And because I left somewhat suddenly, I deeply regret that I was not able to personally say goodbye to many of you. For that, please accept my apologies. Although I do miss Creston, I am very grateful to be back home with my family and looking forward to spending Christmas at “home” this year. I wish you all the best for 2012! Jennifer Whiteley Markham, Ont.

Local wheat perfect for bread

Here in the Creston Valley, we’re very fortunate to have locally grown grain available to us through community supported agriculture (CSA) and I’ve been enjoying mine so much already

ing completely in the morning and then rinsing and draining the grains two to three times a day and leaving them on the counter out of direct sunlight for three days until sprouts are visible. Then the grains can be used immediately, eaten as is or even mixed into bread before being baked as add-ins as whole sprouts, stored in the fridge for a couple days or dried and used any way that whole grains can be used. All wheat berries can be cooked whole after being rinsed by simmering in a pot of water till tender but still chewy. Then the grains can be cooled and stored in the fridge for up to three days or then frozen for later use. It can be eaten like any other grain and is a great substitute for pasta, rice or other grains in salads, pilafs, soups or side dishes. Here is one of my favorite 100 per cent whole wheat bread recipes. Whole grain bread making can be very difficult if it’s not something you’ve done before, and this is a simplified recipe — find a more detailed recipe and many more tips for whole grain bread making this week on my blog at FoodDoodles.com. 100 Per Cent Whole Wheat Bread Makes 2 loaves 2 C milk 1 1/3 C warm water 1/4 C butter, melted and cooled 1/4 C honey 1 tbsp + 1 tsp salt 1 1/5 C add-ins — rolled oats, seeds like sunflower or ground flax, seven grain cereal, etc. 1/4 C gluten (optional) 7-8 C whole wheat flour from hard wheat (freshly ground if possible) In a small bowl, add 1/3 C water and sprinkle the yeast over top of the water Photo credit: Alex MacAulay

that I’d like to draw attention to it. To learn more about it, visit kootenaygraincsa.ca. I’ll be focusing on different grains in future columns, but this month is all about hard wheat. Hard wheat is higher in protein, which makes it better for making bread. It has more gluten than soft wheat, which is what helps hold bread together and helps it to rise but also which makes any kind of pastries — like pie crust, cookies, cakes and even quick breads like muffins — tough and heavy. The two kinds of hard wheat available through the grain CSA are Red Fife wheat and the Hard Red Spring wheat. Both are excellent for making bread and taste great, especially when fresh. As with all whole grains, they are best used the same day they are ground. Whole grains can be stored for years in a cool, dark and dry place while maintaining their nutrition, but once the grain has been ground into flour, it begins to lose nutrients and even eventually go rancid, which is why storebought whole grain flours can smell off. If you don’t have access to a grain mill all the time, it’s best to grind your grains and store them in the freezer to slow the process down. It’s recommended that whole grain flours are only stored for up to three months in a freezer. White flour that’s had all of the bran and germ removed has had most of the nutrients removed — whole grain flour has three to five times the nutrients and up to 25 per cent more protein, not to mention much more fibre. Synthetic vitamins are added back into white flour, which is why it’s referred to as “enriched”. While that is a good thing for preventing deficiencies that would be common if white flour were not enriched, it can never compare to the natural nutrition found in a whole grain. Whole wheat contains so many different vitamins and minerals essential to good health not to mention all the natural antioxidants and other compounds only found in whole grains as opposed to refined grains. To increase nutrition and digestibility, grains can be sprouted by soaking a small amount of wheat berries overnight, drain-

and set aside for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, mix the remaining water, milk with whatever add-ins you choose to use and 3-4 C of flour, plus the softened yeast. Once mixed, add the gluten flour if using and mix well, then the cooled butter and honey and salt. Mix well and begin adding flour until the dough cannot be easily mixed with a spoon. Flour your surface and turn out the dough and begin to knead, adding handfuls of flour as needed. Knead for at least 15 minutes, even if using a mixer, slowly adding less and less flour to prevent sticking. When finished kneading, the dough will be lighter in color, springy and smooth. It will still be tacky to the touch — don’t add any more flour. Add a couple tablespoons of oil to a large bowl. Add the loaf and turn it over to coat the loaf in oil to prevent it from drying oil. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm draft free place until doubled. In a cool kitchen, this can take up to four hours (you can reduce this time by placing in a warm place or by increasing the amount of yeast slightly). Once doubled, knead well to remove all air bubbles and incorporate the oil on the outside of the dough. Cut in two, form into loaves and place in buttered or greased loaf pans. Cover and let rise again until the loaves are just over the edge of the loaf pans, which should take about half the amount of time as the first rise. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Once hot, place your loaves in the oven and immediately turn the heat down to 350. Bake for 55 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 190-200 degrees. Remove from the pans and place on cooling racks and cool at least 1-2 hours before slicing. Heidi Bjarnason is a Creston Valley mom and blogger.

Here’s hoping you had a safe and enjoyable holiday and got a chance to spend some time with family and friends whether it was in person or by electronic means. Maybe it was just our circle of acquaintances, but this year seemed a bit different as more people we spoke with were spending the season alone or in a fairly reserved manner. The saying, “You can pick your friends but not your family,” has a ring of truth to it, but as I get older, I see those distinctions have a tendency to blur a bit. Often, your circle of friends becomes your family, especially if you are far removed or in fact, have no family. If you look up the definition of family and arbitrarily select a portion of the description — because, hey, it’s my column — it states, “Two or more people who share goals and values.” Case in point, I have spoken to a few seniors whose high point of the week is to come upstairs to the walking track once a week and grind out a few laps. To them, this is their family time of sorts where they can socialize and exercise in a warm, non-threatening atmosphere. We also recently had the opportunity to attend the Lions Club Christmas dinner as guests and it was obvious that the group was another form of family as was the Christmas dinner at Crest View Village or the appy night at West Creston Hall (yes, I know the theme seems to be revolving around food — and it’s starting to show). Whether you are part of a bowling team, musical group, quilting club or just a group that gathers at the local coffee shop and shares the highs and lows that define our lives, this is also family. The community complex too, represents not only a family of like-minded individuals but a gathering place for families to grow together. It is interesting: Back in the day when we were a lot smaller, you actually knew most of the people that came here or recognized names and watched their children grow up over their “lifespans” in hockey, figure skating or lifeguarding. Now that we have added so much more with the pool, fitness centre and other amenities, it is like someone hit the invite button on Facebook because our family just got one heck of a lot bigger these past couple years.

KES offering provincial employment program KOOTENAY EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

Kootenay Employment Services (KES) is pleased to announce success in its bid to deliver the province’s new Employment Program of British Columbia in the Creston Valley. Starting April 2, KES will run the new program through a WorkBC Employment Services Centre, which means it will be able to offer a more comprehensive assortment of employment support services. Under the new Employment Program of BC, 73 catchment areas across the province will have similar employment services available to residents. Things like job-seeker resource centres, one-on-one employment counselling, assessments, self-employment training, funding for skills development, wage subsidies, job coaching, job development, employability and lifeskills workshops, job clubs, and funds for job search and job start supports will be available at every centre. “Our goal with this new government program is to give unemployed British Columbians the supports and services they need to find and keep a job,” said B.C. Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux. “The new

WorkBC Employment Services Centre in Creston will provide quick and easy access to anyone looking for work.” Specialized populations will be able to access services through the WorkBC Employment Services Centres in a way that is sensitive to their needs. These populations include persons with disabilities, survivors of violence or abuse, youth-at-risk, persons with multiple barriers, francophones, immigrants, rural or remote residents and Aboriginal Peoples. As is currently the case, eligibility requirements apply to some of the services. After an extensive request for proposal process, KES is thrilled to have been able to keep employment services local and delivered by people who call this community home. As a non-profit society and registered charity, the KES motive is always the betterment of the community, not profit. That makes a huge difference in its approach to service. With no sources of core funding, KES has to engage in competitive processes for every program it offers. The success with the WorkBC Employment Services Centre bid is one such example. KES wishes to thank the residents of this community for

E-books not always best bang for your buck

I was just beginning to relax with e-books and maintain some hope the e-books the library has available will meet the demands of patrons receiving e-readers

patrons will never find recent best sellers among the available e-book titles. The Times article verifies what I said a few columns ago about e-books, “Worried that people will click to borrow an e-book from a library rather than click to buy it, almost all major publishers in the United States now block libraries’ access to the e-book form of Ann Day either all of their titles or their most recently and iPads over Christmas, but published ones.” last Monday I read an article It’s too late now, as entitled “Publishers vs. Libraries: Christmas 2011 is now An E-Book Tug of War” on the Christmas past, but you might New York Times website and I want to think about the puram back to being extremely chase of an e-reader for yourannoyed at publishers’ greed self, family or friends. If that and can’t help but think our e-reader is a Kindle of any future is a bit more hazy. kind, the owner has to purOur cost for 2011 will be chase books for it and they $1,200 for the less than stellar cannot download a library set of ebooks and audiobooks e-book. Unless you or the permade available to the province. son you are buying for already I don’t mind that at all if it is purchased the books they read useful and a benefit to the then you might even save some library.

You also cannot pass those books to anyone else to read nor can you donate them to the library or get credit at Kingfisher Books when you have finished with it. The book will sit in the reader and then what? When the batteries go or the reader becomes obsolete, it and the books in it merely become more techno junk. If you are thinking about the other e-readers, you also have to consider what is available from the library and I will be the first person to tell you the selection is terrible, the wait time can be weeks and weeks, and then the book cannot be renewed if you don’t have the time to read it and you will have to wait again. Again, to derive the most satisfaction from your new e-reader, you are going to have to spend money and purchase those books you want to read. You can’t do that locally, and you can’t share the book when you are done or trade it in on another book. The Healdsburg Regional Library in Sonoma County, Calif., is looking for a wine librarian.

such a thing as a wine librarian? I might have thought about applying for such a position; however, most of the work involves digitizing their print holdings for remote access, and working on a computer all day is not something I see in my future. I did, however, come up with an idea for a partnership I think bears exploring. In the description of the Sonoma County Wine Library, it is stated, “We have been working these past several years on making pictorial and text material available in a digital library setting where users from Cotati to Cote du Rhone can access the materials from the web. … The library staff answers thousands of inquiries from the industry and researchers as well as the wine loving public.” I know Petra and Bob at BaillieGrohman and Dave with Wynnwood Cellars (Sirdar) are

always looking for ways and methods on how to better their already fine wines, which leads me to think our own little burgeoning wine industry in Creston could benefit from access to Wine library information. I wonder if the Okanagan and Similkameen wine industry might not also benefit from a partnership of some kind with the wine library. Much to my chagrin and I suspect theirs, the financial situation for California libraries is dire and not only was the library system closed until the new year, the website was also closed. No transactions of any kind, no information available, nothing but a closed message. I will do some exploring of possibilities when library activity returns to normal, theirs and ours. Ann Day is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

Make the effort

From page 8 This is a good thing — even though there were way more unfamiliar faces, we are getting to know you and it has been our pleasure. So, if you feel you are lacking family, get out there anywhere in our community and its vast assortment of clubs, organizations, gath-

Murder mystery raises funds for GoGo Grannies BY MARY UNDERHILL

Hey! That was a party to remember! The overall feeling during the GoGo Grannies murder mystery dinner was one of fun. Guests came in costume, adding to the atmosphere of a 1950s train. Conductor Jon Smith and Ric Little kept everyone working on clues about the murderer, moving from the dining car to the salon, or to the scene of the murder. Dinner was catered by Ric and Lisa Fanning of the Iron Kettle, evoking rave reviews, which the Grannies provided a yummy apple crisp for dessert. The event was made possible

by the Columbia Brewery, Overwaitea Foods, Your Dollar Store with More, the College of the Rockies, the Cresotn Valley Chamber of Commerce, CIDO radio, Global TV, Ed McMackin (and his treasured recording of train sounds) and the Creston Valley Seniors Centre, which provided the hall and excellent kitchen where the Fannings came up with such a good meal. Also appreciated are the all the Grannies, who contributed time and enthusiasm, especially Barb Gracey, who organized it all. And will there be a repeat performance? Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mystery weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to work out.

Museum seeking info about Depression-era Creston CRESTON MUSEUM

October 24, 1929. The crash of the New York Stock Exchange brought the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties to a sudden halt. People who had invested heavily in the stock market now hoarded what money they had left; as consumption fell, so too did production and, consequently, employment. Close economic ties between Canada and the U.S. meant the crash had a huge impact north of the border. The industries of Eastern Canada, experiencing extreme overproduction with the loss of their main trading partners (Britain and the U.S.), faced massive layoffs. The Prairie provinces were highly dependent on the export of wheat, but world wheat prices plummeted. At the same time, drought in parts of the Canadian prairies forced many off their land. By 1933, nearly a third of the Canadian population was out of work, and those who did have work were making only about half what they had been in 1929. The impact this had on the Creston Valley is the subject of a new exhibit being planned at the Creston Museum for the summer of 2012. In the 1930s, did the Creston Valley experience similar levels of unemployment and income loss as other parts of the country? There are a number of clues that suggest money was scarce â&#x20AC;&#x201D; merchant ads, for example, state that all sales would be on a cash basis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but how did it compare to the rest of the country?

Creston had a good base of mixed farming, so it seems likely that local residents would have been fairly self-sufficient. But dropping world food prices must have affected the viability of farms that shipped their produce elsewhere. There were many families who moved to the Creston Valley from other parts of the country, particularly Saskatchewan, during the early 1930s. Did these people find better conditions here, than what they had left? Or was Crestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stability merely a mirage? There were a number of major projects taking place in the Creston Valley during the Depression years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; reclamation of the flats, and the construction of the power dam at Canyon, for example. Did these projects help counteract the effects of the Depression? The Creston Valley certainly did experience, at least to some extent, the harsh realities of the Depression. There were relief camps, there were unemployed menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clubs, and there were fundraisers to help needy families. But how prevalent were these realities? Did the relief camps benefit local residents, or were the men working at them from elsewhere? Again, how did Crestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation compare to that of other parts of Canada? If you can help answer any of these questions, the Creston Museum would like to hear from you. Please contact Tammy Hardwick at the Creston Museum (mail@creston.museum.bc.ca or 250-4289262) to share your stories, or those of your family, relating to the Depression era in the Creston Valley.

The play â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which ran for 1,809 performances on Broadway from 19781982 â&#x20AC;&#x201D;concerns playwright Sidney Bruhl, who is having trouble writing his next big play following a string of box office flops.

Obituaries

Jack Morris Eyre August 21, 1921 ~ December 10, 2011 Jack was born on August 21, 1921 to Frank and Lucy Eyre. Frank and Lucy came from Yorkshire England in 1913 and settled in Fernie, BC for four years. From there they moved to Cardston, AB where Jack was born; he was the sixth of ten children. In 1932 the Eyre family moved to Pincher Creek, AB and that is where Jack received his education and graduated from high school. While he attended school, he was very active in playing hockey and baseball. Shortly after graduating from school Jack joined the army and served our country during World War II. Soon after returning from the service he moved to Kamloops, BC where he was hired by Overwaitea Foods, and became a manager. He eventually was transferred to Creston and that is where he met his wife Peggy.

Manfred Heinz Gros 1934 ~ 2011

His family also remembers his innate ability to bond with animals, and his great fondness for his many pet dogs and horses. Most of all, he is loved and remembered for his warmth, generosity and humour.

The CKF, a non-profit community foundation, is a member of Community Foundations of Canada. It accepts donations of cash, securities, real property, bequests, etc., and invests them in perpetuity. Being registered with the Canada Revenue Agency, it is entitled to issue tax deduction receipts to its donors. Ken Gadicke of Gadicke, Minichiello and Carr, the group’s auditor, told the

meeting that the foundation’s assets exceeded $634,000 as at May 31, 2011. Each year, the proceeds from its investments are distributed as grants to non-profit groups serving the area between Riondel and Yahk. President Larry Brierley told the AGM that the 11 grants for 2011 totalled $28,000. The largest grant, $9,200, went to the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors (TAPS) for its healthy meals for seniors project. For the other substantial grant, the CKF put $9,000 into a threeway partnership with the East Kootenay Foundation for Health and an anonymous donor to purchase a $27,000, extra-long, bariatric bed for Swan Valley Lodge. In his annual report, Brierley rated the soiree held in June and attended by more than 120 diners and dancers as one of the highlights of the CKF’s year. He also paid tribute to Julie Ewashen,

Kokanee eggs implanted in Summit Creek

CRESTON VALLEY WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA

On Oct. 26, 945,000 kokanee eggs were implanted into Summit Creek, located in the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA). Summit Creek flows into the Kootenay River, eventually emptying into Kootenay Lake. Historically, Summit Creek sustained the largest run of kokanee on the west side of Kootenay Lake in the 1960s and 1970s. Numbers have declined substantially over recent decades due to nutrient and productivity issues in the lake. Kokanee eggs have been implanted in Summit Creek since 2004 for the purpose of kokanee conservation. In the fall of 2009, adult kokanee made an appearance in Summit Creek — a sight not seen for decades. The return is most likely a result of fertilization efforts in the south arm of Kootenay Lake and in the Kootenay River and from egg implants in the creek. Kokanee are a landlocked form of sockeye salmon. From August to December, mature kokanee move from Kootenay Lake into the inlet streams to spawn. The kokanee eggs used for the implants were collected from Meadow Creek Spawning

Submitted photos

Summit Creek became the hatching ground for 945,000 kokanee eggs, which were implanted on Oct. 26.

Channel once targets for the spawning channel were achieved. Staff from the Freshwater Fisheries Society of British Columbia (FFSBC) and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO) collect the eggs and milt (sperm). The fertilized eggs are shipped to the FFSBC hatchery located in Wardner, where the eggs are incubated at the hatchery for about a month until they reach the “eyed egg” stage when two black dots — the eyes — are visible to the naked human eye. At this stage the eggs are very

robust to handling and are ready to be transplanted into creeks. Prior to the eggs being transplanted into Summit Creek, some preparation had to be done. Twenty-two artificial redds (gravel nests) were constructed to provide the best possible habitat for the eggs, 40,000 of which were implanted in each. To do this, an excavator and lots of hands-on labour were utilized.

Meadow Creek Spawning Channel operations are funded by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) and run by staff from FLNRO. The eyed egg implant work is funded by the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho (KTOI) and is a component of the South Arm Kootenay Lake kokanee and ecosystem restoration program. The work is delivered by FLNRO with support from the

FWCP and the British Columbia Conservation Foundation. The Kootenai Tribe of Idaho receives funding from the Bonneville Power Administration through the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. The CVWMA is happy to see kokanee reintroduced to this historically significant creek, and extends its appreciation to all the partners for making this happen.
