East Shore collision claims life

Board approves schooling option

BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Emergency services, including Creston RCMP and Creston Fire Rescue, responded to a fatal two-vehicle collision north of Sanca Creek that shut down Highway 3A on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake for a few hours overnight on Jan. 18 and 19. The RCMP's preliminary investigation found that a northbound vehicle being operated by 82-year-old Glen McKenzie crossed the centre line and collided with a southbound vehicle. “The southbound driver, a [52-year-old] Creston resident, was treated and released on scene by ambulance personnel,” said Sgt. Einor Jorgenson of East Kootenay Traffic Services in a press release last Thursday. East Kootenay Traffic Services took charge of the investigation, assisted by a collision reconstructionist with Southeast District Traffic Services, who will attempt to determine the cause of the accident, which occurred just before 7:30 p.m. “At this time, alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in this collision,” said Jorgenson. For most of the night, traffic was singlelane before both lanes were opened early Jan. 19. McKenzie had lived in Boswell since 1992. He was married to Verna MayersMcKenzie — a former Regional District of Central Kootenay director and School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) trustee — since 1989.

Wildflower school, a popular alternative to traditional classroom structure, is about to put down roots in the Creston Valley. The School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) board of education passed a resolution on Jan. 10 that will introduce one Wildflower class in Creston and expand the program in Nelson, where it has a lengthy waiting list of students whose parents want their children to participate. “Creston traditionally has had few options and Wildflower adds a very big option,” trustee and board chair Mel Joy said last week. “Many of the students on the waiting list in Nelson are home-schooled, so this is an opportunity to draw more families into the public school system.” “A rapidly growing and long standing wait list in Nelson, and increased interest throughout the district, for student programming currently offered at the Wildflower School in Nelson requires the district to consider a plan for growth and expansion of the program,” Supt. Jeff Jones told the board in a written report.

Creston Hutton balances family and career figure skaters earn thirteen medals BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Creston Valley Figure Skating Club enjoyed home ice advantage on the weekend, earning 13 medals in the Kootenay Regional Figure Skating Championships, held at the John Bucyk Arena for the first time since 2003. “This was the first competition for five of our skaters, and they were very excited to skate,” said coach Cassie Bloy. “It was also the first time some of our competitors medalled at a competition. It has been a while since we have brought home more than one or two medals.” The local club earned three bronze medals and eight silver medals, with Allison Olson earning gold in the performance program and Timothy Thom earning gold in the men’s novice long division. Olson’s gold and six of the silver medals came from the performance program, a first step on the road to competition. “It is there to be a learning experience and ensure skaters receive positive reinforcement,” said Bloy. “There are three judges and skaters receive a report card from each judge, each looking at a different aspect of their performance including skating skills, transitions — the steps between the spins and jumps — and their performance, as well as written comments about what they loved, and what to consider next time.” Creston’s skaters are now preparing for the Rocky Mountain FreeSkate competition, which will be held in Cranbrook on Feb. 24 and 25, and the Creston Valley Figure Skating Club’s annual ice show on March 4. As always, Bloy’s expectations of her skaters will be the same as they were this weekend. “Our competitors skated to the best of their ability and had fun — that is all I ask of them,” she said.

Prince Charles Secondary School grad Pascale Hutton is enjoying every aspect of her starring role in CBC’s new one-hour drama series, Arctic Air. “The cast is amazing, a really wonderful group,” she said in a telephone interview from Vancouver. “These are really strong actors and they are wonderful to work with.” With numerous television and movie roles on her resume, Hutton admits to being surprised by the attention the series is getting. “It really has kind of taken me aback,” she said. “Canadian series aren’t usually so heavily promoted and supported. But there seemed to be a momentum growing while we were filming and we started to get a sense that we were involved in something special.” Arctic Air is set in the sprawling, resourcerich and sparsely populated Canadian North. Hutton plays Krista, a pilot and headstrong daughter of Mel Ivarson, cofounder of a small regional airline. Adam Beach stars as Bobby Martin, who has returned to his Yellowknife home to help save the struggling airline after making his way in the “south” as a venture capitalist. Hutton wasn’t looking for more work when the Arctic Air opportunity came knocking. She had just completed a movie and shooting on the television series Sanctuary had wrapped up for the season shortly before she gave birth to her now 13-month-old son, Ryu. “I wasn’t really back into the business, looking after a young baby,” she said. “Then the phone rang, asking if I was interested in this new TV series, Arctic Air. I decided to audition and take the first step. That went well and then I was asked to do a ‘chemistry reading’ with Adam Beach.” When she was offered the role as one of the series’ three lead characters, she wondered out loud about the necessity of travelling to Yellowknife, where the exterior scenes were to be shot. “I was one of the ones who were saying, ‘Do we really need to go to Yellowknife? Can’t we just fake it? After all, that’s what this business is about,’ ” she laughed. She had no experience with the Canadian North. “It’s unlike anywhere else,” she said. “Everything is different — the landscape, environment, diversity of culture. The type of people who choose to live in the North are unique individuals — there are some really eccentric characters!” Over the months that it took to complete the 10 episodes of Arctic Air that were contracted by CBC, Hutton traveled to Yellowknife three times, once for a whole week of filming. The last exterior scenes, though, were shot in Clinton, B.C. Clinton? “There was only about five hours of light a day in Yellowknife at that that time,” she said. “We needed to be able to shoot for full days for financial practicalities.” The week before Arctic Air was premiered on television was hectic, she said. The final scenes were filmed in Clinton, then she had a day of publicity appoint-

ments before attending the first episode’s premiere at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre. With 800 people looking on, Hutton and her co-stars arrived at the theatre in limousines, and she walked the red carpet in the company of her husband, Danny Dorosh, and her parents, Elizabeth and Ian Hutton, who arrived from Creston a week early to help look after Ryu. “It was wonderful,” she said. “It was so great to share that moment with Danny and my mom and dad. The excitement was tangible. … “The difference between working for Canadian productions and US ones is amazing. On Arctic Air there is no hierarchy, no egos. Everybody is there for the same reason — to put their best foot forward and make the best show we can.” Hutton’s acting career during her pregnancy and since the birth of Ryu has succeeded largely because of Dorosh’s support and work flexibility, she said. Dorosh, also an actor, manages a school that teaches the Israeli self-defense and fitness program, Krav Maga. He took parental leave to care for Ryu so that his wife could take the Arctic Air role. And it wasn’t like her career wasn’t already keeping Hutton busy. For four years, she has had a recurring guest role in the Canadian television series Sanctuary, appearing in about half the episodes. The sanctuary is a place in the future that provides a safe home for “monsters”, characters who possess attributes that are key to the survival of the human race. “I play an FBI agent who is dating one of the workers in the sanctuary,” she said. The series is shot almost entirely in a Vancouver studio and is shown in Canada on the Space channel, and in the U.S. She was thrilled with a recent fourth season episode that allowed her to showcase her singing talents. “It was a musical episode with a story that focused on my character, and what a pleasure it was!” she said. “In the show my character becomes inhabited by a creature who can only communicate through song, so I end up singing. It sounds weird, but it really worked.” Hutton misses singing, something that has always been part of her life.

“I’m always open to singing, but there aren’t a lot of opportunities,” she said. “I would love to have the opportunity to sing more.” The future for both Arctic Air and Sanctuary is undetermined at this point. “Sanctuary just wrapped the fourth season and we are still waiting for a decision about its future,” she said. Arctic Air averaged more than a million viewers for its first two episodes (it airs on Tuesday nights on CBC), about what is generally needed to make a one-hour drama successful. “I think it will be decided in February if CBC will order more episodes,” Hutton said. “But it’s impossible to predict when it comes to television — decisions don’t always seem logical.” Strangely, Hutton said she hasn’t actually seen Afghan Luke, a movie that was made before the birth of Ryu. Directed by Trailer Park Boys creator Mike Clattenberg, Afghan Luke tells the story of a Canadian journalist whose explosive reporting from Afghanistan have put him at odds with editors in his own country. He returns to the remote country to research another story he’s heard about — that a Canadian sniper is taking trophies from his victims. “Afghan Luke started out as one part conspiracy drama and one part Cheech and Chong comedy, but one of the other cast members said the comedy parts have mostly been edited out,” she said. “I play an Eastern European who works as a refugee camp coordinator who ends up working with Luke and his friends, helping them out.” Afghan Luke premiered last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. One of Hutton’s previous movies, A Simple Curve, made in 2005, was shown as part of the Friends of the Cinema series in Creston. Hutton attended the screening. She is looking forward to her time at home while she awaits news about Arctic Air and Sanctuary. “When I took the Arctic Air role I made a conscious decision to be at home with my family after we finished shooting,” she said. “Danny and I sat down and worked it all out. I’m really committed to making the best of our family time.”

Wildflower educates ‘whole child’

From page 1 In Wildflower, students, teachers and parents work on a child-driven education plan. Classrooms are multi-age. Students attend classes four days a week and work under their parents’ direction on the fifth day. “The Wildflower school community strives to educate the whole child — addressing social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth,� Jones said. “In this definition, the program is not different from most other programs offered throughout the district. However, this program is designed with an intentional multi-age, multi-year structure and a philosophy of ‘continued progress’ for students. Emphasis is placed on a theme-based, naturally differentiated and non-competitive learning environment focusing on critical thinking and inquiry. “In addition, the school focuses on real-world connections and problem solving through on-going community-based initiatives. Students are grouped and attached to a teacher who will ideally work with the same group of students over a number of years.� Newly elected Creston South Rural trustee Rebecca Huscroft said on Monday that she is pleased that the board has approved the program despite the district’s tight financial situation. “It is exciting to finally have a program of choice in Creston,� she said. “This is really the first one out of the normal main frame of schools. It’s a step in the right direction.� Huscroft was part of a group of parents that began to lobby for the program three years ago, she said. Now, with her own children too old to participate, she is pleased for other parents who want to provide an alternative education for their children. “I would like to have had it when my kids were younger,� she admitted. “The program isn’t for everyone, but judging by the waiting list in Nelson it should have a strong appeal. The board and management have worked to find creative solutions to offer the program viably.� Joy said it is yet to be determined where the Wildflower School will operate, but two possibilities are in the Creston Education Centre and CanyonLister Elementary School. “That decision will be made in consultation with parents and taking in logistics like transportation,� Joy said. She said at least 20 students would be needed to make the program economically viable.

Singers compete for positions in finals BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Thirty singers took to the stage on Jan. 19, competing for 20 spots in the semifinals of the third annual Creston’s Best Singer, which will run Feb. 9 at Prince Charles Theatre. With songs ranging from classic rock to standards to showtunes to country — with a slam poetry piece thrown in for good measure — the performances demonstrated a wide range of Creston Valley talent. “I’m just amazed by some of those voices,� said producer Vern Gorham on Friday. “With each contest, the singers keep raising the bar for the next one. I think the calibre of singing last night was definitely the highest so far.�

As with the 2011 “audition� show, the audience was given scorecards to rate the singers. Their votes have been tallied, and the top 20 will be announced at www.ilovecreston.com on Feb. 1, with additional coverage at www.crestonvalleyadvance.ca. “Everyone has a really good chance of making it,� said Gorham. “I’m glad I’m not the one making the decision.� The concession proceeds went to the family of one of the contestants, who recently discovered that medical didn’t cover the cost of a $900 back brace. “That was a wonderful testament to the generosity of Creston,� said Gorham. The winner of Creston’s Best Singer on Feb. 9 will compete in the regional Kootenays’ Best Singer contest, to be held in late spring.

Last summer I was browsing through the DVD collection at Creston and District Public Library when chief librarian Ann Day offered a suggestion. Deadwood, she said. One of the best series ever. I suppose I had seen the DVDs on the shelves and something in the back of my mind suggested that our oldest son, Evan, had mentioned it at some point. Not being much of a fan of westerns, though, I simply hadn’t paid attention. But then, I thought, Ann Day isn’t likely to be obsessed with the genre, so there must be some substance to her recommendation. We spent the ensuing weeks alternating between being captivated by the programs and being frustrated when we couldn’t get the next shows when we wanted them. (Has the deadbeat who has part one of season two of Deadwood brought it back, yet? I’m sure the library staff got tired of me asking questions like that.) When the credits rolled for the last of 36 episodes we could, without a word of a lie, immediately have started watching the series all over again. It is that good. By that time, I had had some long telephone conversations with Evan about the show, learning more about why he liked it. On one visit to Calgary he loaned me a book about the series by creator and executive producer David Milch. When I came across a sale on the DVDs I didn’t hesitate in buying them. The challenge that followed was to save them for the winter, when long, dark evenings would be brightened by a second viewing. I’m not exaggerating when I say

that, for me, Deadwood is the best television series ever made. Brilliant writing and a superb cast made each episode a gem. Now, having watched the series again, and after reading the

safe passageways to California. Gold, “discovered� by white trespassers, trumped all legal agreements, though, and Deadwood became a town of 10,000 within a few months, all without any of the infrastructure we take for granted today. Those who rushed for the Black Hills were attracted not only to the promised riches. There was a great appeal, too, in the fact that there was no government or legal authority in place. In Deadwood, we see what Lorne Eckersley I suspect is a very real depiction of the machinations that book, I am only beginning to apprecitook place in the lead-up to the area ate the depth of thought that went becoming part of the Dakota into the series, about how Territory and, therefore, the United Shakespearean the writing is and how States of America.

This is the Life

Slogan 33: Don’t transfer the load from the ox to the cow

This slogan is about weaseling out of our own duties and responsibilities. It is about manipulating others into doing what we ourselves do not want to do. It is about making a commitment and then, instead of following through on the details required to meet that commitment, handing the responsibility off to others. People who use this tactic to avoid work are so concerned with their rights and with what they feel others owe them that they think very little about what they owe to others and to their communities at large. They are the people who let others volunteer for community service and when they are asked to contribute time and energy to a community project feign incompetence and humility. But their humility is dishonest because they are looking for a way to avoid taking on a project they know they could accomplish if they applied themselves. As leaders, the easiest people to manipulate are often in a subservient position to us, and in many cases they are not as capable of completing the task as we are. In Tibet, the country where the Lojong slogans were developed, an ox is seen as being stronger than a cow.

This means that the idea of this slogan is not to put the heaviest burden on the ones who have the least capacity to accomplish it. Leaders may make the mistake of feeling

A

Zen's-Eye View Kuya Minogue

that it is unfair that they carry a heavier load than others, but, realistically, not everyone has the same capabilities. Each can only do their best. The most remarkable leaders are those who are willing to step up when a job needs to be completed. For a good leader, no task is too lowly or insignificant. One definition of an enlightened person is that they don’t discriminate between tasks; they see what needs to be done and then with good timing and skill, step up to do it. They don’t expect others to do what they themselves are in a position to do, and they don’t whine. After the question, “Is anybody willing to step up?� ineffective leaders

play the disappearing act, withdraw into their offices and offer nothing but silence. But when a situation demands action, a good leader who has the background and ability to respond will contribute time and energy to complete that action. This is called leadership by example. This slogan is about developing skill in working with others and taking leadership in our families and communities. It is about developing the art of knowing how much responsibility to take on and how much to delegate so that each person involved feels challenged but not overwhelmed.
 Suggested practice
: Pay attention to the temptation to shift your burdens to those who are weaker than you. When you find yourself hiding your own strengths and abilities, look into what is behind that. In what ways do you avoid taking on your fair share of responsibilities? This column is a long series of short essays exploring the meaning of the Lojong Slogans. It is inspired by the work of Judy Lief. Kuya Minogue is the resident teacher at Creston’s ZenWords Zen Centre. For more information, she can be reached at 250-428-3390.

Grateful to neighbours

To the Editor: When most of the news we see and hear seems to be about man’s inhumanity to man, I write this to thank friends and neighbours who quickly came to the rescue of one of my horses, whom I had been informed was down and unable to get up while I was away at Christmas. They came and worked tirelessly to rescue him from where he had fallen, and lovingly cared for him until he lost his battle with death at age 29, and even saw him safely buried. My gratitude will always be with each and every one who took part in caring for my pet. Sultan was born, raised and buried in the same pasture. Connie Kolthammer Canyon

Liberals have good record

To the Editor: Until recently, I believed that all of our federal political parties were trustworthy and that any one of them would honour the Canadian values of peace, order and good government. I assumed all of them respected democracy and the institution of Parliament. I thought that they all felt a moral responsibility for the less fortunate, environmental protection and sound financial management. However, I am very worried when I see institution and programs like CBC, the Canadian Wheat Board and the longform census being dismantled and other groups being purposely underfunded so they are unable to perform. Canada is quickly being transformed into a nation that uses blind ideology in decision-making, has contempt for parliamentary procedure and embraces a vindictive penal system. Anger and fear are being stoked as divisive tactics for partisan purposes. There is little effort to find compromise or common ground on issues. I realize that I must learn more about our government, as well as the history, visions and policies of the other parties. This is not easy, as it is often hard to tell between facts and fiction and spin. Think tanks, journalists, experts, lobbyists and analysts all present their sides of the issues. I have been looking at the pros and cons of each of the parties to examine their visions and platforms.

Opinion Line

I have always supported NDP values regarding social issues, including the rights of minorities, women, the homeless and others. I am worried about the diminishing middle class and feel that this has to be addressed or Canada will become progressively more dysfunctional. But I am less comfortable with NDP positions on Quebec sovereignty and abolishing the Senate, rather than reforming it. And I do have worries about their economic policies, which seem more idealistic than realistic. The Green Party’s platform in the last election was very impressive, covering social and economic issues, as well as strong environmental protection. Canada needs a strong voice for the science of climate change. These are all issues and values I support. The old Progressive Conservative party was responsible, although, like many conservative/republican governments, it talked about good fiscal management but did not demonstrate it. I could probably accept parts of a red Tory platform, but I realize I don’t agree with any of the present Conservative policies and beliefs. In fact, I worry that there may not even be a Canada in a few years. In the spirit of new symbolism, it may have a new name, too, to go with its image! The Liberal Party has a long record of supporting post-secondary education, child care programs and health care. Aboriginal affairs were a priority with Paul Martin and certainly global warming was a high priority of Stéphane Dion. Internationally, Canada was recognized as a strong middle power and made valuable contributions on files such as land mines, cluster bombs and the creation of the international criminal court. The Liberal government was also recognized internationally for the financial policies established during its term in office. As is examined the policies of those parties, I realized that the Liberal Party is the only party with a strong social conscience, as well as proven fiscal management and a commitment to deal with global warming. It has proven itself when in government, giving solid management with policies developed from sound and balanced research and respect for statistics and expert advice. It has demonstrated respect for democracy and the traditions of Parliament and the rule of law. I found my personal search for a political party to have been fascinating and rewarding, and I would encourage others to look at their own wants, needs and values before casting a vote in any election. Although it is very important to vote, it is even more important to know whom one is voting for. Catherine Prowse Creston

Time for true democracy To the Editor: As most of you know, I have been yapping about our provincial government and the promised election that won’t happen until 2013. I couldn’t understand why the election was not called after the referendum last summer. They had a new leader that had the wind in her sails, and the main opposition was weak, disorganized and leaderless. A looming teachers’ strike that the public did not support seemed like the perfect atmosphere to call the voters out to choose who should run the province because the scars of the NDP’s last fiasco are still all so fresh. So why not call an election? The answer has nothing to do with politics at all, but with the privatization of BC Hydro. No, they would never publicly admit to that. Even Adrian Dix could lead a charge against the fascist right wing block of the federal Conservative and provincial Liberals if they admitted their plans to privatize BC Hydro. Instead, it was death by a thousand cuts. In 2002, the Liberals brought in legislation forbidding BC Hydro from building any new generating stations. With an energy boom looming, who does something stupid like that? Then, they broke the crown jewel into three companies and hired top executives with ballooned salaries from all the largest campaign contributors to run them, executives from companies like BP, Teck Cominco, TimberWest and Westcoast Energy. Secretaries are making $75,000 a year. They entered into needless and ridiculous lease agreements to house their new buddies with Bentall properties. Total bill to unnecessarily break up BC Hydro: $65 million. But this is just the tip of the iceberg that is sure to sink the Titanic. Since their election in 2001, the Liberals have been using different debt accounting principles with BC Hydro. For those of you unfamiliar to these practices, it is where you defer payment on your debts to a later date. Basically, it’s a sub-prime mortgage. BC Hydro started showing huge profits and the Liberals started boasting. Who isn’t able to boast huge profits if you don’t pay your bills? Who does BC Hydro owe most of its money to? Foreign exchanges. Wow, really? Go figure. The company ended up with a $183 million shortfall in 2011. And it’s about to get worse. See DEMOCRACY, page 12

Vista pruning clears the view

This last week had some good clear weather perfect for pruning. I haven’t had a chance to take care of the brush growing by the creek in the arboretum for many years. With no snow on the ground, the creek running low and days not too cold, I thought I’d better get going. So with some help from my horticultural apprentice Stevie, we cleared the creek banks out and chipped it all up. I mention this because while we were working, Stevie mentioned something about vista pruning. Obviously, at the time, we were taking out a lot of brush and opening up the sightlines in the rear garden. A lot of the creek came into view, as well as some neat rocks. There aren’t that many rocks on the property so they are a bit of a curiosity. Near the top of the gardens, we removed some

old shrubs and opened the view through the trees so that the neighboring orchards with mountains beyond came into view. Intrigued, I decided to do a little more research on the subject of vista pruning.

Nursery Notes Evan Davies

Vista pruning can be defined as the process where branches are selectively pruned to create a viewing window within the tree. Often it is done to enhance the view of landscapes or

mountains from a specific viewpoint. We were doing some of that along with a few other tree pruning processes like crown raising — whereby the lower branches of a tree are removed to increase visibility or clearance, so that the lawnmower would fit underneath some of the smaller trees better. Later this winter we will need to do quite a lot of crown cleaning, as the older trees are full of deadwood. This process is required in situations where dead, damaged or diseased branches present a liability and should be removed to help promote the health and vigor of the trees. We will need some warmer weather for this, as it will likely involve a lot of tree climbing. Evan Davies owns Beltane Nursery at 2915 Highway 3 in Erickson.

Time to change In Your Corner

Michelle Mungall Happy new year! Time keeps rolling along and already it is 2012. A few weeks ago, I was doing some holiday shopping locally, and a friend and I were reminiscing about years gone by. Mostly, we were laughing about the days when our respective households had a single phone, located in the kitchen, and we would spend hours talking to friends. The year my family got an extension cord for the phone receiver meant privacy for me, and peace and quiet for my parents. Back to the present, my friend and I each have smartphones that do so much more than relieve us of that terrible cord. Take a video, send it to Twitter and Facebook, text a friend about it then call our parents (who just learned how to turn on their new cellphones). Indeed, time brings change. Our time on this island called Earth has also brought changes to the climate. The international scientific community has reached consensus that global warming is a result of human beings polluting the atmosphere with too many greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, mostly over the last 50 years. Now, our planet’s “thermostat,� as the David Suzuki Foundation puts it, “just doesn’t work the way it should.� Extreme weather events are more common, the Earth is heating up, glaciers are melting and eco-systems are changing. When I was on the wired phone back in the day, my friends and I would talk about the need to stop pollution, but we had never heard the words global warming. Now, when on my smartphone, it’s a persistent topic — particularly when the Harper Conservatives pulled Canada out of international talks to address this global issue and left an embarrassing mark on our nation’s reputation. Worst of all, Canada isn’t taking meaningful action to change its ways and head off global warming. B.C. isn’t do much either as the Liberals contemplate the Enbridge pipeline that would bring Alberta crude to B.C.’s coast. This has to change. You can be a part of making that change happen. Not only can you make choices to reduce your individual carbon footprint, but you can also call on others to join you. Namely, government decision-makers need to step up and make the necessary big changes. So start with a pen and paper, share them with some friends, and write your thoughts down in letters or petitions to Christy Clark and Stephen Harper. Tell them you don’t support oil pipelines. Tell them you want to see renewable energies developed by and for the public. Tell them you’re making changes and so should they. Tell them you’re part of the 99 per cent and things need to change. Send me copies of your letters and petitions and I will present them in the legislature. And if they prefer not to make those changes, the 2013 and 2015 elections may force another kind of change. Never underestimate the power of the pen or a small group of people. So get on that phone, call, tweet, text, Facebook some friends and make something happen. Time brings change; you decide what change you want to see.

On the brink of an invasion?

Have you seen a new bird around lately? Well, possibly, what you may have been seeing or will see is a Eurasian collared dove. It may not be in some of your bird books because it

house (English) sparrow but didn’t know till it was too late. House sparrows were brought to New York by an “enterprising� gentleman in 1850. His eight pairs of precious birds were carefully housed in secure cages and placed under the charge of the gardener. In time, somehow or other, a neighborhood feline got a hold of one of the feathered “gold nuggets� and killed it. When the garEd McMackin dener reported the incident, the owner promptly has not been considered to be a native, ordered that all the cats in the neighresident bird breeding in the wild. borhood be shot (I guess they had Traditionally, many kinds of doves guns then). Should they have shot all have been kept as caged pets and the the English sparrows? Eventually, the collared dove is no exception. However, as with many caged birds, some have escaped captivity, never to return, and have survived for a time on their own and perhaps some have even become locally established. A few “foreign� caged birds have been bred and deliberately released when the owners got tired of raising them or there got to be too many to look after. Likely most don’t survive, but some do, as with the house (English) sparrow, and perhaps that is the origin of some of the pockets of collared doves that are being located in North America. The Eurasian collared dove, I underLinda Van Damme photo stand, began its “public career� (known The Eurasian collared dove is a recent newcomer to birdwatchers) in the southeastern to the Creston area. United States in 1982. That is just 30 years ago, and whether it has spread house sparrows got away or were on its own or been helped a bit by released and according to what hapavian enthusiasts isn’t known, but pened and what we see today, they now the bird is established, in small did a lot better in North America than but growing pockets of resident, breed- in Europe. ing populations all over the United Then there is the European starling.

“treeless� prairie, spread quickly over the continent reaching Williams Lake in 1949. It, like the house sparrow, takes to tree cavity nesting sites and bird nesting boxes. Pockets of trees around prairie towns and farms became islands of favourable habitats to enhance the westward movement. They use nest holes that would normally be occupied by native species of birds, including blue birds, and they have also been known to oust young and adult native birds from a nest. Both starling and house sparrow populations peaked. House sparrow numbers began to decline as horses were replaced by automobiles, which didn’t leave seed-bearing manure in the streets. So, why have the house (English) sparrow and the European starling done so well, and why is the Eurasian collared dove spreading so rapidly? Birds, like other animals, will not stick around when there is no food, water, and/or shelter. Give them those three things and you’ve got them. Hence, birds and animals, collectively, shift their ranges as there are changes in their environment. Many individuals often perish. On the other hand, house sparrows and starlings found North America to be a wide open territory for all their needs and, to boot, aggressive personalities, and enhanced their settlement. Where is the collared dove headed? They do well around cattle feed lots. Perhaps they are or will do even better partaking of the abundance available at bird feeders. They may even become so large in numbers they will crowd out other birds out of habitat and feeder, and also eat us out of house and home. There are probably a lot more bird feeders today than there were when house sparrows and starlings became “landed immigrants.� See DOVES, page 12

60 Hertz to rock Sasquatch

Thursday, January 26, 2012 Creston Valley Advance

Democracy

SASQUATCH ARTS AND MUSIC SOCIETY

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The name 60 Hertz, although it has nothing to do with age references, certainly sit well on this bunch of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;old guys,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said Rod Wilson in the Cranbrook Daily Townsman of the band that plays at Crestonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Snoring Sasquatch on Jan. 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only have the band members been musical comrades for many years, their musical instruments have been around for much of that ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;James Neveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acoustic Larrivee guitar must be one of the earliest instruments made by that premier luthier Jean Larrivee. Dave Birchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bass was old when he purchased it back in the 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. So there you have it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; old musicians, old instruments and modern technology, all combined with the finest of song writing. The results are performances that continue to sparkle regardless of how many times the band has been out there.â&#x20AC;? James Neve â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the writer, guitarist and lead vocalist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Dave Birch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the hyperactive bass player that occasionally breaks into a curious little duck foot dance step as he plays and sings backup â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been playing music together for nearly 40 years. They, with Rob Young and Loretta Taylor, were founding members of the 1970s rock quintet, Tennyson Finch. Young is the master of the many moods and effects of his Stratocaster. Marty Musser creates the hammock with his rock solid drumming style, sense of volume and dynamics. Their tight weave of vocal and instrumental lines are evidence of a strong melodic influence ranging from the early Beatles to Crowded House and Dire Straits. The original music of 60 Hertz flows easily from country-feel ballads to folksy rock, but always with an honest, simple and personal touch. 60 Hertz knows how to captivate their audience by creating and delivering their original music with an engaging and fresh stage presence, which is a real treat to experience. They released their long anticipated first CD, Time Stands Still, last summer. For more information, visit www.60hertz.ca. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8. Tickets are $10 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, or $12 at the door.

Pentaedre plays at the Prince Charles Theatre on Sunday, in a presentation of the Creston Concert Society.

Concert society presents wind quintet CRESTON CONCERT SOCIETY

The Creston Concert Society is delighted to present an exceptional afternoon performance by the Pentaèdre wind ensemble at Prince Charles Theatre on Jan. 29 at 2:30 p.m. A unique musical ensemble in the Canadian landscape, Pentaèdre explores and presents a diversified and original chamber music repertoire. Under the artistic direction of Louis-Philippe Marsolais since 2005, the five artists-musicians forming the quintet are recognized for the combination of talent, technique, precision and colour they bring to their performances. It has been said that Pentaèdre has a wonderful corporate sound, masters of balance and blend. Pentaèdre is comprised of five masterful musicians, out-

with ensembles in Canada as well as the United States. After playing as solo horn with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra and associate solo horn with the Orchestre symphonique de QuĂŠbec, LouisPhilippe Marsolais is now Artistic Director of Pentaèdre. A renowned recitalist, concert and chamber music musician, he performs regularly in North America, Europe and Asia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A charming collection of music for wind quintet performed by a group that plays with finesse and great technical prowess â&#x20AC;Ś really demonstrates how well these five musicians work together,â&#x20AC;? wrote Richard Burke in Fanfare. For more information, visit www.pentaedre.com. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students in advance at black Bear Books, and $25/$12 at the door.

From page 7 The final blow came in 2006 when then-premier Gordon Campbell announced that BC Hydro would start to buy electricity from private sources. After all, BC Hydro wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to build any new generating stations and there was an energy boom going on. The tenders came in and starting in June, BC Hydro will start buying private hydro at almost double the market value. What idiot enters into this type of agreement? Take this and the fact that we still have five years left on Mike Harcourt and the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hydro gift to the United States, and we have agreed to buy hydro at double what we must sell it for. If an election would have been called for this year, this deal to buy private electricity could have been stopped. Instead, the Liberals are going to bleed BC Hydro dry. Only a silent revolution can stop this lunacy now. Join True Democracy: Internet Government today. Tyson Soroke West Creston

From page 8 And, because of bird feeders, we may be having a lot more winter birds around. Some people have put chicken wire around their bird feeders to control the kinds of bird visitors or they have built a hutch-feeder of chicken wire that keeps out the larger and more aggressive birds. Birds, when occurring in large numbers, can be noisy and messy, and a breeding pot for transmitting disease. It seems one of the factors contributing to overpopulation is the lack of available predators. Bird population growth is retarded or enhanced by many factors, but the main ones can probably be counted on one hand. Where does and will the Eurasian collared dove fit in? Will we be glad we sent out the welcome wagon? Ed McMackin is a biologist by profession but a naturalist and hiker by nature. He can be reached at 250-866-5747.

Making changes for 2012

My jungle adventure BY EMMA PENNER

My friends and I love to learn about animals, so we decided to go on an African jungle safari to Kenya. Our backpacks were full of camera gear and stuff to survive in the jungle, like dried food and an emergency medical kit. We were going to meet a friend named Amadi, who is an expert guide and knows the laws of the jungle and how to safely get around in it. So we started out one bright sunny day. We drove to the Calgary airport in our jeep and caught a flight to Paris, where we spent the night with my aunt and uncle. The next day, we took the direct flight to Jomo Kenyatta airport. After hours of flying, we finally arrived, and Amadi was excitedly waiting for us! He drove us to his family’s home where supper was on the stove. We were too tired to ask what was being served so we had no idea what we were eating. They had bought drinking water, so we wouldn’t get sick from their tap water. After a restful night, we started our African jungle safari! Amadi had prepared everything for us. We were so exited to get started. We travelled in Amadi’s jeep from camp to camp or cabin, stopping to take pictures of landscapes and wildlife we met. We were able to get pictures of the following animals: giraffes, monkeys - swinging from tree to tree, pandas, lemurs, zebras, hippopotami, many types of insects, reptiles, wild cats and colorful birds; we even witnessed elephants bathing by using their trunks. It was so cool! Every night we would make a campfire and sing and dance and tell stories while sitting around it. Sometimes we just sat and enjoyed the sunsets. There was a cook at every camp so food was provided. We slept in tents with mosquito nets. When we stopped at camps or cabins, we had a great time meeting people from all over the world, on their own safari tours. We traveled on dirt roads and spent the day

hiking between trees, trees and more trees. We felt like we were in another world. There was high humidity and heat, so we drank lots of water. Kenya is close to the ocean and when near the ocean we saw white sand for miles and miles. There were no people except us. One day, while eating a banana snack, a big hairy hand suddenly came through the jeep window and stole my banana! I started screaming; Olivia and Meredith, also scared, looked at me. Amadi explained to us to that it was only a monkey. From then on I made sure that I was never by the window when I ate a banana! After this incident, while driving on the dirt road, the right tire blew with a bang! The tire had popped! Right away, Amadi jumped out of the front seat, jacked up the vehicle, put on the spare tire and away we went. Less than two hours later we heard the same noise as the last time — bang! This time, we were in trouble because we had no spare tires left! Amadi used his radio to contact help in town. They made arrangements to bring us a couple of spare tires. While we were walking around waiting, Makayla screamed and slipped on a rock. “Ow! Ow! Ow!” She was in pain so we tried to help her stand up and walk but she couldn’t put any weight on her left foot. A helicopter arrived and it was decided that Makayla would go back to town with the helicopter. There was only one night left at camp before returning to Amadi`s house so she didn’t miss that much. The next day, we enjoyed our last hours in this amazing part of the world. We were glad to find Makayla with a smile on her face and moving around with the help of crutches. Amadi drove us to the airport the next day; we made him promise to come see us so we could show him our country. Back home, we wondered if we had just dreamed about this wonderful adventure but looking at Makayla`s foot reminded us that it had been real.

English 11 honours students were asked to creatively describe a character from the novel The Kite Runner. Dempsey McKenna chose to compare the complex Afghani character Amir to a tree and the weather, both symbols in the 2003 Hosseini novel.

Amir — pomegranate tree By Dempsey McKenna Tall and secure, Something dark lurks below This surface. Branches that twist toward the sun, Yearning for acceptance. Roots that cling to the earth, Begging for strength. Young and jealous, Willing to please, This new tree was bright and ready.

It looked to the sun as to a god, And its roots ached when the sun Burned its hesitant leaves. When the clouds rolled in Even the bright sun couldn’t push them away. Gone were the eager, twisting branches In its place, an angry resentment, Cut deep into the wood, Aching to the roots. Long gone is its youth. A great regret lies in this old, gray bark. Barren, limp with age, and grief. No fruit off this tree, It stands alone. Traveling back in time, It searches for rich soil To help it grow, To please the bright sun. Revisiting past mistakes, This tree loosens its roots Willing to accept the pain.

It searches for a fruit, Begging for strength. Yearning for acceptance, Aching to the roots.

Online

The clouds provided A constant coverage, And the tree was Unable to grow. No light touched Its young branches, No heat warmed Its fragile leaves. The tree grew under A dark gray sky. And nothing let The injured roots Relax and accept the rain That poured down its body, And soaked the ground, And drowned its roots. Forever reminded of the jealousy That sacrificed everything to feel the warmth of the sun Brush against hesitant leaves, and leave a lingering kiss on its twisting branches.

Glen Wilfrid McKenzie April 13, 1929 ~ January 18, 2012

Residents of Kootenay Lake and area will be saddened to learn of the loss of Glen McKenzie on January 18, 2012 in a vehicle accident during bad weather on Highway 3A not far from his home at Boswell. Born in Edmonton on April 13, 1929, Glen spent childhood years in Strome, Alberta. Glen worked in the oil industry and briey as a stockbroker, before earning a degree in education while raising three children with his rst wife Randa. A teaching position at the Banff Composite High School in 1963 was an opportunity to escape city life, and Glen transformed their summer cottage at Harvie Heights into a family home through a series of expansions that spanned a decade. A selftaught carpenter, plumber, electrician and nisher, no job was too large or too intimidating. After his career as a teacher and administrator at schools in Banff, Canmore and Exshaw, they semi-retired to Kimberley, BC in the late 1970s. Glen and Randa separated in 1982 and later divorced. Glen met Verna Mayers in Vancouver at a school trustees’ conference, and after several years they were married in Kimberley in 1989. They spent happy years in Kimberley where Glen had invested in real estate through his company Celtic Estates and was on the local school board, while Verna sold real estate and operated a bakery. Both were active within the community. In 1992 they moved to their acreage at Boswell and undertook major house renovations and property improvements. Here Glen realized his long-held ambition to farm, and to raise highland cattle. He and Verna also managed poultry, fruit and vegetables on what became Applecross Farm, named after an ancestral home in the highlands of west Scotland. The beauty of the lake and mountains through the seasons provided the perfect backdrop to a peaceful and satisfying time of life. Glen and Verna spent over twenty happy years in their much-loved home within a community in which they both invested much time and worked hard at bettering. In recent years, Glen was plagued by chronic back pain and was deeply concerned about the possibility of having to leave his beloved farm. His sudden death at 83 years of age, after a long, interesting and muchenjoyed life, spared him this difcult decision. Hard-working at home, at work, and within his community, Glen often quietly or publicly supported the endeavours of others. He had a strong interest in local history and all things Scottish, and is remembered for his distinct sense of humour. He was also well-traveled, particularly later in life when accompanied by Verna and often friends and family. Glen was predeceased by his brother Gordon, his sister Babe and his son Douglas, and is survived by his wife Verna, brother Ken and his wife Doris, sister-in-law Anne, brother-in-law Bruce, son Ian and his daughter Kim. He will also be missed by an extended family that includes grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A Memorial Service will take place at Boswell Hall at 1:00 pm Friday January 27, 2012 followed by interment at the Boswell Cemetery and refreshments back at Boswell Hall. A Life Remembrance is also planned for April 13, 2012. In lieu of owers, donations for the refurbishing of the Boswell wharf, a project of interest to Glen, will be gratefully accepted by the Boswell and District Farmers Institute, 11977 Hwy 3A, Destiny Bay, BC V0B 1A3, attention Bob Arms – Help The Harbour.

Together with his family he moved to Canyon, BC in 1948. John married Verna Popoff May 4 1953 and together they had three children. John worked for the Canadian Pacic Railway and retired after 40 years.

Kenneth Gordon Macklem January 16, 1927 ~ January 14, 2012 The family of Kenneth Gordon Macklem sadly announce his passing on January 14, 2012, two days before his 85th birthday. Ken was born in Brooklands Manitoba and was the second son of three born to Doris (Ames) and Percival. Ken was a member of the Royal Canadian Airforce from 1944 to 1950. He spent most of his life in Dawson Creek/Fort Nelson as a self employed businessman and sign painter extraordinaire. When the Peace River bridge fell in 1957 he was paid $700 to crawl across the pipeline spanning the river carrying the telephone lines. He was an avid curler and loved watching hockey and football. He also enjoyed his garden and his dogs. In 2003 he left Fort Nelson to retire to the Creston Valley. He was a volunteer re ghter in Dawson Creek, Mackenzie, and Hudson’s Hope, a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion branch 149 and Branch 28 Seniors' group here in Creston. He loved to camp and travel in his numerous motor homes, some of which his family had great concerns about! Ken was predeceased by his wife Marg (Steevie), son Larry (1963), daughter Joanne (1996), grandson Jamie (1979), brothers Marshall (1954) and Percival (2001). Ken leaves to mourn his wife Marion Kahlmann of Creston; children Gordon (Sim) Bunny, (Jim) Wendy (Gilles), Susan (James), and Don (Sandra); thirteen grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren. Arrangements entrusted to Funeral Home.

There’s nothing wrong with starting off every new year with a resolution to exercise more. No matter how long it lasts, it is a win-win resolution, because any exercise is better than none! At this time of year there are a multitude of activities made available to optimists, one as enjoyable as the next. If you are willing to invest in some equipment, there is winter jogging, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiiing. For a daily walk, you don’t need anything more than a pair of slip-on crampons. If you do feel like braving the outdoors, be sure to do some warmups to get your muscles ready for movement. Be sure that you are adequately insulated by wearing several layers of clothing. Dressing in this way enables you to stay warm when you start out and then cool off during more intense activity by peeling off a layer or two. It is particularly important that the layer next to your skin be able to absorb sweat and that the top layer be water and wind proof. When you go back inside, don’t strip too quickly, as your body will need a bit of time to adapt to room temperature. If just the thought of going outside puts you off, there are many indoor ways to get exercise during the winter months. You could go to the local swimming pool, join a gym, create a training centre in your living room, or sign up for an aerobics or dance class. You’ll see that there’s no real excuse for doing nothing!
