PURE IMAGINATION — Students at Canyon-Lister Elementary School had to create their own fun at recess on Monday morning, when they were forbidden to use the school’s fields or playground. The students

are currently raising funds for a playground for School No. 121 in Santiago, Chile, which principal David Falconer attended as a child. Monday’s activity was the idea of Grade 2/3 teacher Patsy-Anne Casemore, who thought that since School No. 121 has no playground, the CLES students should have the same experience as the students they are helping.

Bear bylaw doesn’t pass BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Amendments to a waste management regulations bylaw got a cold shoulder from several Creston town councilors on June 14. The amendment proposals, based on recommendations from the local Bear Aware program, would have defined when residents could put out garbage for collection and placed restrictions on backyard birdfeeders.

Reunion mirrors valley history BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

A family reunion in Lister this summer will be more than a time for a few cousins to get together and reminisce about their childhood. Not when it is a gathering of Huscrofts, whose history is closely tied to local history. William Rodger Huscroft and Jane Fisher Huscroft arrived in the Creston Valley 120 years ago from Utah. Shortly thereafter, they would be joined by all but one of their nine children. William was 61 when he

came to Canada. “Very little is known of the early life of William Rodger Huscroft,” Dawn (Huscroft) Sommerfeld wrote in a family history that was published for the Huscrofts’ centennial reunion in 1991. “He seldom spoke of his childhood and, although many Huscrofts appear in the records of Kirk Smeaton (Yorkshire, England) as far back as 1632, despite a great deal of research I have been unable to tie them to W.R. Huscroft.” William was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day

He and his family lived in Missouri for a time, then returned to Utah in the early 1870s. Meticulous genealogical research by Sommerfeld and other Huscroft descendants led to the publication of a two-volume work filled with family tree information, photographs and anecdotal contributions by various family members.

Huscroft brothers create sawmill

From page 1 Sommerfeld wrote about her father, John Henry Huscroft, the eighth child of William and Jane. John Henry was born in Jensen, Utah, in 1878 and died in Creston in 1964. “Dad never mentioned that he had attended school in Utah and we always understood that his mother was his only teacher until they reached Canada and he attended school in Porthill where Mr. McLochlin taught. At any rate, his formal education was about four or five grades but he was very well-read and he received his steam engineer papers by correspondence which he studied in the evenings while he was working at the North Star Mine. “Dad was always a hard working, responsible person. He often told us of how, at the age of 13, he had supported the family by selling wood in Kalispell when his father and brother had gone ahead to the Creston Valley to look over the land. When he was only 17, he preempted the property which was to become our home farm. He worked at the North Start Mine, as engineer on a tug which hauled logs from Porthill to [Lardeau], and as foreman at the Rogers mill in Huscroft. Later he started his own mill, which was to become J.H. Huscroft Ltd. He farmed in Huscroft and the Wynndel flats, and over the years had cleared many acres of land mostly without the help of modern equipment.” Irwin Kenneth (Ken) Huscroft was born to John Henry and his second wife, Amy Johnson Huscroft. At 87, Ken remains active in the operation of the sawmill. He wrote: “My earliest recollections are of farm life – doing farm chores – clearing land – hauling logs on sleighs – haying with sweeping rakes and hay stacker, all horse powered – outdoor toilet – all wood cooking and heating – gasoline and coal oil lights. “I started school when I was five – about 18 students nearly all related – no electricity – wood heater – outdoor biffy, and water was carried up the hill from the creek. I got the strap in grade two for hitting the teacher with an acorn. “Sports were a big thing – baseball in the summer and hockey in the winter on outdoor ponds, shovelling lots of snow.

The first electric lights were from a Delco generator at our rink on Uncle Charles’ place. He was the best goalie, with horse-collar pads for protection. “We seemed to be forever clearing land for growing crops. Shortly after Grandfather settled here, he and Uncle Jim and Dad put in about two miles of ditch from Huscroft Creek for flood irrigation. This was an art that he had learned from the Mormons in Utah and he taught my dad and Dad showed me. During some dry summers in the 1930s we would have two heavy crops of alfalfa while unirrigated land got one medium crop.” Ken described the formation of the family-owned sawmill that continues to operate in Erickson, with more than 100 employees. “One must also learn to be humble because when the war ended I was back in the logging camp up to my boot tops in mud with a pregnant wife living in a make-do shack. Leonard (one of Ken’s brothers) returned from overseas in February 1946 and started working up Iron Mountain with Elmer (another brother) and me cutting ties. Dad retired to the farm about this time. Early in 1947 we incorporated the sawmill businesses as J.H. Huscroft Ltd. with Elmer, Leonard and I as equal major shareholders. “Our operation was up Boundary Creek for the next four or five years, then we moved to Dodge Creek and it was there on the 29th of June 1953 on Elmer’s 42nd birthday that his arm, with heavy clothing, got caught in and edger and he was hauled up into those saws and he died from head injuries. About two months later, polio it the area. Elmer’s son, Garth, Leonard and his baby daughter, Penny, got it. Garth made a quick recovery but Leonard and Penny went to Vancouver for treatment for six months. So by the hand of fate I became the manager of J.H. Huscroft Ltd. Penny died in May 1954 and Leonard was partially crippled for the rest of his life.” Next week: Further reminisces from Huscroft family members.

Varela is new town CAO

Creston Mayor Ron Toyota and chief administrative officer Lou Varela.


Lou Varela has spent about six of her 20 months at Creston’s Town Hall in the town manager’s position. Now the job is hers. “Lou has the support of town council and of her management team,” Mayor Ron Toyota said on Monday. “I believe this is a good move in both the short and long term and one that brings added stability to a very strong town staff.” Varela came to Creston as director of development services, replacing Albert Flootman. It was a job she had turned down two years earlier because her son was finishing high school on Vancouver Island and she didn’t want to uproot him. A wide variety of experiences have helped her rise in municipal government. She started out as a summer student with the former regional district of Comox-Strathcona and spent eight years working with small communities including Quadra and Cortez Islands, helping local government with planning projects. During that period she also earned a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and sociology. Later, she would earn a certificate urban design from Simon Fraser University. “People thought it was an odd choice for my degree, but I come at planning with a hands-

on perspective that puts people first,” she said. Varela also worked in Cumberland as a planner for a couple of years. “Cumberland had a really effective official community plan process, one that BC Business magazine described as ‘a model of participatory democracy’,” she said. “It involved a very high percentage of the population. Private sector experience followed her years with local government. She joined an architectural planning firm, then eventually struck out on her own, teaming with partners to create two consulting businesses. “Working in both the public and private sectors has provided me with the opportunity to see planning issues from all points of view,” she said. Becoming a town manager (or chief administrative officer) wasn’t on Varela’s radar when she first came to Creston. She had been approached about whether she was interested in a temporary position, but applied, once again, for the director of development services job when she learned it was open. She served, in rotation with other managers, as the acting town manager whenever James Thackray was away. Then she became part of a four-person rotation that filled the town’s chief management roll after Thackray and the Town of Creston parted ways by mutual agreement. “I’ve probably spent six or

MARITIMES BY MOTORCOACH Several Tours to Choose From

seven months as acting town manager, so it has been an easy transition,” she said. “But I still wouldn’t have wanted the job if I didn’t have the support of our senior managers.” She describes herself as a people person and says her strength is the ability to communicate information. “I’m looking forward to building on what being ‘open for business’ really means here in Creston,” she said. “We will continue to strive for consistency, fairness and timeliness. We are working to get all of our systems in place to make us business friendly, in a very transparent manner.” Town staff members, she says, share the same dedication. “This staff does a lot of ‘over and above’ that you wouldn’t find in a larger community,” she said. “I have really come to love this community and it has been a great fit for me,” she said, adding that her appointment to the town manager’s position has a six-month comfort clause that calls for her and town council to evaluate their satisfaction with each other in January 2012. “If we don’t feel like I’m the right person for the job, I will have the option of returning to my old position — I’m very excited about Creston’s future and I look forward to being part of it, helping to bring all of the stakeholders together to create the community we all want.”

New staff sergeant takes over Police cont’d Creston RCMP detachment BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

There’s a new sheriff in town. Or, to be precise, a new staff sergeant, who is assuming command of the RCMP detachment. Bob Gollan (no, not that Bob Gollan), arrived to begin his new duties this week. He takes over from Staff Sgt. Gord Stewart, who moves onto an advisory role in Kelowna. A 30-year veteran of Canada’s national police force, Gollan was in charge of the Gleichen, Alta., detachment before coming to Creston. Creston is his 12th detachment and the first in B.C. He began his RCMP career in Stony Plains, Alta., and his resume includes two postings in the Northwest Territories and three in Saskatchewan. From 2009-2010, Gollan was part of a United Nations team posted in Kosovo, where he supervised management training for three small police detachments. “After a while I could understand Albanian, but I couldn’t speak it,” he said. “We had interpreters, but English is taught in the school system, so communication wasn’t too difficult.” When he started looking for a new opportunity after his time in

Gleichen, Gollan and his wife, Mary, decided southern B.C. would be desirable. “I was looking for something different, but I didn’t consider Creston because it wasn’t listed as a detachment headed by a staff sergeant,” he explained. “The I got a call about the opening here and I had four hours to make my decision. My wife has always wanted to live in this area and I’ve always wanted to work in B.C. The decision to move here was an easy one. … “I have enjoyed every posting I’ve had. I have a strong belief in community involvement. I’ve always been involved in coaching and community organizations. I look forward to doing the same in Creston.” Parents of two grown children, Gollan and his wife are on their own now. A daughter, 24, is married and living in Vauxhall, Alta. A son, 21, is a world traveller who is currently working in Strathmore, Alta., until his next adventure beckons. “We’ve already experienced a very warm welcome to Creston,” he said. “The people are very friendly. And I’m very impressed with this detachment. Gord (Stewart) and his team have obviously worked hard to work with the community and I plan to take the same approach.”

Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan took command on the Crseton RCMP detachment this week.

Bylaw was ‘over the top’

From page 1 “This (bylaw amendment) is ‘way beyond what’s necessary,” Coun. Jerry Schmalz said. “It’s another bunch of paper that we aren’t going to enforce anyway.” “I’m in favour of stickers on garbage cans and public awareness and education, but this bylaw is over the top,” Coun. Wesly Graham said. “We didn’t discuss birdfeeders or things like that before. That has put it off track.” Development services director Lou Varela said the amendment recommendation was prepared at the direction of town council after it heard a presentation from Bear

Aware coordinator Gillian Cooper. Varela said she had worked with Cooper to put “best practices” into the amendment. Following that May 24 presentation, Graham with Coun. Judy Gadicke seconding, moved that staff prepare an amendment to waste management regulations bylaw No. 1395 to create a more “bear aware” community, that the Conservation Officer Service be authorized to post “bear in vicinity” notices on municipal property and that the town commits to continue promoting bear awareness within the Town of Creston by establishing a link from the town’s web-

site to the Trans-Border Grizzly Bear Project website. The motion was carried. Amendments to the waste management regulations would have prohibited the setting out of garbage cans for street collection before 7 a.m. It would also have banned the use of birdfeeders between April 15 and Dec. 1 to reduce the attraction of bears into residential areas. A motion to refer the issue back to town staff for further input was defeated. That effectively ends discussion about how to promote bear awareness unless the mayor or a councillor reintroduces the topic.

From page 4 June 19 •When a mother reported that her adolescent son was away from home and intoxicated, police located him and drove him home. •A wallet and camera were reported stolen from a Ford pickup in the 500 block of Cook Street. •No theft appears to have taken place in a break and entry to a business in the 200 block of Northwest Boulevard. •A hunter in the 6400 block of Highway 3A placed his 22-rifle on his vehicle trunk lid, forgot about it and then drove off. The rifle is now missing. •While checking a driver reported as being possibly impaired, police found he wasn’t impaired, but was listed in the computer system as someone who had earned a seven-day vehicle impoundment. He also received tickets for driving without a licence or insurance. •A male caught siphoning gas from the hospital parking lot was arrested and taken into custody for breaking his parole.

When I shut down television signals coming into our home a couple of years ago, I didn’t give up watching hockey. One can usually find the Canucks’ games on the Internet and I continued to watch or listen on the computer, following the team I’ve cheered for since moving here from Alberta in 1979. Giving up television was one thing, but giving up hockey was something altogether different. Like most Canadian boys, I grew up with hockey, playing on backyard rinks and on the outdoor ice at our community centre. I cheered for my beloved Leafs and booed les Canadiens each Saturday night. I was ecstatic when CTV began telecasting Wednesday night games (joining games in progress to allow the evening news to continue as scheduled). Sunday evenings I tuned my radio into CBC to hear Foster Hewitt broadcast games. In my basement sits a collection of tens of thousands of hockey cards, player figurines, posters, pucks and other collectible items. Hockey was a passion I shared with our two boys. But everything changed in the last few weeks. I found myself feeling increasingly soured by the games I watched in a final series that pitted the Canucks and the Boston Bruins. Wildly inconsistent refereeing left viewers and players unable to discern what the rules of engagement were. Penalties that were routinely called during the regular season were suddenly ignored. Mostly what bothered me, though, was the wanton disregard players showed for the safety of others. One began to sense that hurting opponents had become a priority. Was this the game I’ve spent most of my

life loving, I wondered. I want to make it clear that my disenchantment had nothing to do with the series outcome. I watched only a few minutes of the seventh

Even though we live in families and in communities, the fact is that we are born alone, and we will be alone when we face our death. Likewise, as we enter the path of practice, we each travel it alone. Of course we might have others who are practicing with us, but if there are a hundred people in practice, there will be a hundred different paths. Everyone brings the teachings into their lives in their own way. Each of us has different challenges to bring to spiritual training. Life in general is this way. We enter alone, we go out alone and in between, no matter how many family members, friends or acquaintances we have, we are still alone at a fundamental level. This slogan is about finding confidence in our aloneness. It is hard to accept this kind of existential aloneness in ourselves or in others. We want people to know us, appreciate us, love us, and we want to have some way to truly understand others. But no matter how much we bare our hearts, we can never convey the fullness of our experiential reality. Nobody can live in our heads, and no matter how much we probe, we can never fully penetrate another

person’s experience. Even the greatest poet will tell you that words cannot fully express the reality of our inner lives — we can only approach doing so.

much less so after he drove Montreal Canadien Mark Pacioretty headfirst into a stanchion during the regular season). Soon after the bizarre call on Sedin, I watched as an obviously injured Mason Raymond was heckled by Boston fans, then recklessly hauled to his feet and off the ice by a trainer and fellow players. Replays showed just how ugly an incident this was, at least from my point of view. Raymond was hooked, which spun him to Lorne Eckersley face defenseman Johnny Boychuk, who proceeded to game, spending the first period run a player in a jackknife position making dinner and leaving the into the boards.

It is natural to want others to affirm our spiritual progress. But, according to slogan 20, if we want accurate feedback about how we are doing, we must rely on our own judgment. But it is unsettling to realize that no one else really knows what is going on within us, so we look around for confirmation. We look to others for feedback and for clues about how we are doing with our Zen training. Instead of looking directly at our own experience, we give our eyes away and try to find ourselves in what others reflect back to us with their words and actions. But that reflection is not all that trustworthy. Most people, even our closest friends, are easily fooled by

appearances. We evaluate what we encounter according to our own biases and preconceptions. It is easy to become so used to looking for the approval of others that we lose confidence in our own self-knowledge. But according to this slogan, we must learn to trust what we know about ourselves and not rely so heavily on others. Only we really know when we are being phony or genuine, aware or unaware, compassionate or uncompassionate. No matter what may be going on at the surface, or how confused we may feel, deep down we know exactly what is going on and what we are up to. That is the witness we must hold. Today’s practice
: Pay attention to the loneliness of experience. Notice the difference between seeking for confirmation and direct witnessing. What makes you trust or distrust your own experience?

Criticism an attempt to Something deflect wrong with attention? ‘democracy’

She deserves appreciation and respect. April Oliver Creston

To the Editor: I am writing in response to the letter from Wesly Graham (“MLA missed at AGM”, May 12 Advance). I was appalled to see his letter criticizing Michelle Mungall. Mr. Graham apparently did not bother to telephone or email Ms. Mungall to find out why she was not able to attend the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments AGM. Mr. Graham also wrote that she did not even send a regret to let the people know why she did not attend. In the letter from Ms. Mungall (June 7 Advance), she states that she did send her regrets and explains the reasons why she was not able to attend the meeting. In trying to understand why Mr. Graham would send such a negative letter, I can only think of the following reasons: 1. He is trying to put up a smoke screen so that people will forget the fact that he made an error in voting at the April 12 Regional District of Central Kootenay board meeting (“Graham votes against Creston CBT benefits”, April 21 Advance). 2. He is planning to run as candidate in the next provincial election. 3. He is mean spirited. 4. All of the above. I certainly would not vote for him. Michelle Mungall is a hard working, conscientious and ethical MLA. She won the election in a democratic process with a large majority of votes.

To the Editor: How does it work? First, gangsters with money (banks, market scammers, big oil, big business, zionist lobbyists, warmongers) infiltrate the main political parties and give them contradictory programs, which will divide and sidetrack society and voters. For example, Conservatives will fight for corporations, banks, markets and the war industry, and they will oppose gun control and same-sex marriage. Liberals, NDP and Greens will pretend to defend the poor (most of us), and advocate same sex-marriage and gun control. This alone will leave half of Canadians at a loss who to vote for or if to vote at all. The next sweet lie is that if we don't vote for main parties, we are wasting our vote. That effectively eliminates most of voters who would gladly vote for independents with integrity instead of the same old same old. Some 30-40 per cent of Canadians are so fed up with this scam they don't even bother to vote. Another trick from the lying political magic hat are empty promises before and real turnaround after the election. A shining example is Chretien’s 1993 landslide victory when he wiped out the Mulroney crowd (who jumped his own Titanic in time) on lies that he would kill GST and free trade.

Or consider Harper's promises to run a transparent, accountable, small government that will not intrude on citizens’ privacy. Secrecy, proroguing democracy and Parliament when in hot water, huge deficits, appointing cronies for Senate, the G20 Toronto fiasco and other clueless actions exposed him as an arrogant, backstabbing liar. His only salvation came from impotent, cowardly, (equally) clueless Liberals who nailed shut their own coffin by voting for Afghan fiasco extension and attacking Green and NDP instead of co-operating with them. The last, but not the least, election trick is this: Elections are usually called suddenly, so public debates are either absent or quick and muzzled. It is both tragic and hilarious how some crucial questions strike panic in leading candidates because they are prepared for usual side issue, no issue or bunny trail questions only. (One such question is if candidates would support the return to a sound financial system as prescribed by British North American Act of 1867 instead of present fraudulent one.) What does the future hold? Huge debts, more jails, more wars, more secrecy, the absolute rule of corporatocracy and kleptocracy while Canadians will watch from the sidelines. I know fallen humanity, Canadian mentality, ignorance of the masses, servitude of politicians and arrogance of puppeteers all too well. I am a well-informed optimist. Do we have democracy with elections? We do have the best “democraNOW cy” and (s)elections money can buy. RECYCLING Is there anything we can do? For as long asLEAD complacency and ignorance rule, there is not a thing in the entire world ACID we can do. IsVEHICLE it pessimistic? Not at all. I am one of the well-informed optimists who BATTERIES spent most of his life trying to understand and figure things out. Vladimir Certik West Creston

MLA voting yes to end HST

Ballots for the harmonized sales tax are arriving in mailboxes. The B.C. Liberal government’s $7 million taxpayer-funded advertising campaign has kicked into gear on TV, radio and with a “voters’ guide” rightfully described by independent MLA Vicki Huntington as “designed to deceive”.

In Your Corner Michelle Mungall

Like Huntington, I am tired of all the deception that has resulted from the HST. First, the HST was brought in after the Liberal government lied in the election. Then it took 700,000 British Columbians making history to force the BC Liberals to at least ask us what we thought. We were promised by the Liberals that we would have a fair referendum process, but not until September 2011. Not soon enough we said, and the promise came for a June 24 date. Score two for the people — or so we thought. The BC Liberals have broken their promise for a June 24 referendum run like an election. Instead, we have a problematic

mail-in ballot that lacks proper scrutinizing and transparency. This tactic is often called “voter suppression” — nothing any governing party should be proud of. I’d like the government to be honest, and voting yes in this referendum is one clear and legitimate way to send them a message, but it’s not the main reason for me. For me it is about fairness. At the core of my values, of what drives me everyday no matter how rough the day, is the idea that fairness is worth fighting for. As a child, when I was told that “life isn’t fair”, I always responded, “It should be.” We all deserve access to quality health care. We all deserve a good education. We all deserve a good life. No one would dispute that in Canada. To this, we should all pay our fair share of the taxes. The HST changes that. It shifts more taxation onto you and away from the big corporations who haven’t been paying their fair share for several years. Whenever you go to a restaurant, buy a sandwich from the Extra Foods deli, get your hair cut, switch to energysaving appliances, go skiing, go to a naturopath, you are paying more. The average family pays over $1,000 more

per year. We are all paying more to the tune of roughly $2 billion each year and the big corporations are paying less. When I spoke with bike shop owners, one worker said to me she was upset to have to turn a little boy away because he hadn’t saved enough when he found out about the HST. He had enough if the HST didn’t cost him seven per cent more. Something in this story hits home. An 11-year-old boy pays more while Alcan, Cominco and Telus pay less. So what happens when you and I have less to spend? One of B.C.’s largest employers, restaurants, are saying they have to lay people off. Single moms living off tips have even less, and child poverty gets worse. Restaurants can’t buy local food because it costs more, and they have less. That’s not going to be good for our local farmers. The list goes on. Meanwhile, the CEOs of B.C.’s biggest corporations are making on average 35 per cent more than they did last year. B.C. has the highest child poverty in Canada, and one B.C. CEO sees his annual salary jump 1,117 per cent. This is 2011. Yes, life should be fair. Yes, taxes should be fair. Yes, the HST is unfair. So, yes, I want to stop the HST. Michelle Mungall is the member of the legislative assembly for the Nelson-Creston provincial riding. 7

Jesus mentioned in Mark 13:29, “When ye shall see these things come to pass, know that His return is nigh, even at the doors.” In every era, some believers have been setting dates for his Second Coming. All have been wrong. Jesus mentioned that “in an hour as ye believe not, the Son of Man cometh… for ye know neither the day nor he nd is igh the hour wherein the Son By Pastor Ian Cotton of man cometh.” In spite of Bible warnings, Pope Innocent Creston III predicted that Christ Seventh-day would return in 1284 Adventist A.D. Church William Miller, a Baptist, of the Great He said that the dead in Christ will Advent Awakening said Christ arise and go with the raptured saints would come in 1844. Joseph Smith predicted Christ’s return, on or to heaven at 6 p.m. on May 21. It did not happen. I am writing before, 1891. Then the organization that claims this on May 11, and according to the Bible, “no one knows the day to be God’s prophet, the Jehovah’s nor the hour of Jesus’ return.” Thus Witnesses, have given multiple dates, any person, or organization, which all of which have shown to be false: claims to know when, are wrong. 1874, 1914, 1915, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975. A false prophet indeed! They are false prophets! All these date settings are a Camping established a large following with 140 radio stations. diversion of Satan.

Let it all hang out

Smart watering saves water, keeps plant healthy

Attention: Have you seen the water smart ambassador? This looks like a great summer job. Except, have you seen the sun? Has anybody had to irrigate their orchards this year? Anybody watering their lawns?

Nursery Notes Evan Davies Don't get me wrong. I have turned the water on to the front half of the property and test fired the irrigation. It’s just that the cheque we just wrote for the water bill had surpassed the one we wrote for our property taxes. In 10 years, it has doubled several times. That's my gripe, so on a positive note it is fine water. And there is lots of it this year. We live in the Interior wet belt. You might be surprised at how little water the orchards really use. Many farmers have invested in micro irrigation systems that have all been developed in places like Israel where water really is in short supply. In the summer of 2002, we planted about 1,500 cherry trees. They were all watered in at planting and we then installed a drip irrigation system. It was as expensive as the trees. We ran it three times the first year. Longer, deeper waterings promote a more resilient tree. As a participant in the provincial government's Environmental Farm Plan, we began recording irrigation volumes and usage. Since the initial planting we have removed some of the cherries and replaced them with apricots and peaches. If the average tree gets watered (during fruit sizing) perhaps every other day, one could calculate something like eight U.S. gallons per tree per irrigation. You may calculate the total water usage if you are interested. I digress. At this time of year, many locals are wary of

planting. I haven't figured it out. Containerized nursery stock benefits from being planted into the earth at any time of year. You are buying and planting a tree or shrub with 100 per cent of its root system intact. Sometimes trees can get transplant shock. There would have to be a reason or a cause for this. You can minimize this by not doing 60 miles an hour down the highway with your trees hanging out of the back of your truck. The old adage of planting a $10 tree into a $20 hole still holds true. Dig wider but not deeper. Add some good compost and some bone meal for the phosphorus, which aids in root development. Mix your 25 per cent amendments with 75 per cent native soil because the tree will have to grow into the native soil at some point. Soak the planting hole, tree and all down well to get all the air pockets out of the ground and then monitor it often. Allow to dry between waterings. If you are growing anything in a bigger container, use a well drained mix. Gravity will always pull water down and through even the smallest of holes. If you have automatic irrigation that comes on with a timer, place some coffee cups out to quantify exactly how much water you new trees and shrubs are getting from the system. Try to locate the trees and shrubs out of direct spray patterns and if possible run them early mornings so the leaves will dry faster. This helps prevent fungal disease from starting. It is always a good idea to stick your finger into the soil and determine if a plant is actually getting wet. You could use a shovel in the garden to dig down a bit and have a really good look. Hanging baskets and potted plants can be picked up anytime for a weight/water check. Often, the colour of the soil will indicate that a plant needs watering. Remember the three rules of watering — water thoroughly, allow to dry between waterings and monitor often. Hoping to use the orchard irrigation system sometime soon! Evan and Wendy Davies own Beltane Nursery at 2915 Highway 3 in Erickson.

They used to be rich

BY DAVID MCGOWAN Yahk Elementary School

I used to be rich last Tuesday. The reason I got rich is I was hiking up a mountain and I found a $50 bill hiding under a rock. Well, of course I was gonna keep it! I thought about what I should buy and I figured I should get a new pellet gun. Yep, I know I just got fifty dollars! Oh yeah, I got an extra $30 for finding out that the Grand Canyon was made by a giant scorpion. When I got to school the next day, I accidentally got in between two bullies. “Give me all your lunch money, Freddy,” one of the bullies said. Then he threw me upside down and $12 spilt out of my pocket. “Shoot,” I mumbled under my breath. After that incident, I stumbled over a chair and two dirty, weathered, brown quarters fell out of my pocket. “Now I only have $67.50,” I complained. After school I called my friend Billy over and we went to the shops on the bus. The bus ticket cost a whopping $10! We went to Tim Hortons and I got some Timbits to share with Billy. “I heard you got $80,” he said. “Well I used to, but I sort of lost some and now I only have $46,” I replied. When I got home I realized I left some money at home and my younger brother Dylan stole it and bought himself a pound of Super Sugar Sour Suckers. I yelled at him, “That was

my precious money!” Mom came down the stairs and said, “Give him $4.50 for yelling at him.” I cursed him silently and gave him the cash I “owed” him. First he steals $10 and then I get fined? Now I only have $31.50. I just had enough of that madness so I jumped on my bicycle, rode to the store and bought a security system for my room. I installed it and told Dylan he could go in my room and keep anything he wants. “Ouch,” he screamed. Boy, has he learned his lesson. The next day me and Billy decided to go hiking. I slipped on a rock and $0.75 fell out of my pocket. “Good bye quarters!” A few minutes later, I found a squirrel caught in a snare and I brought it home. Remember the Timbits I bought? Well, some of my money smelt like Timbits and the squirrel ate it. “Good bye, $3!” When I got home, I got fined by my dad for bringing a pet home without asking. “See ya, $5.25!” Now I only had $3. Well, maybe next year I can get that pellet gun. BY CHESTON PALMER Yahk Elementary School Last Sunday I was a climbing tree when I saw a Steller’s jay with a $100 bill in its beak. So I jumped to get it but I fell 10 metres down. But when I looked up I saw that a Red tailed hawk had eaten the bird and the money. After 16 hours, it finally pooped out the money along with the bird. Finally, I

went to bed and thought about how rich I was. When I woke up I somehow lost $20. Good bye, $20. Now I had $80 and I wanted to buy a canary bird, which only costs $30, so I went to ask my mom if we could go to Sunset Seed. My mother said “Of course… not unless you want to walk there.” So, I decided to walk there. When I was walking there, I saw this awesome store that said Just for Birds. So, I went in to get some bird food and a cage, which cost less than Sunset Seed. The bird food cost $5 and the cage cost $30. Goodbye, $35. Now I had $45 left and I was right by Sunset Seed. Right when I went in, I saw a little budgie. I bought it because it was on sale and I wanted my canary to have a buddy so it wouldn’t be lonely. Goodbye, $10. I only had $35 left and I had to find the canaries. There they were! The canaries were just around the corner, so I ran so fast that I slipped on a squeaky toy. I slipped all the way to the geckos. When I got up, I saw this awesome green Gecko that I just had to get. Before I knew it, I had it in my hands. Goodbye, $10. I was so exited that I bought one more. Goodbye $10. Now I had $15 left and I spent it on a cage and some food for my geckos. Well, I had no more money so I left the store. Right when I went out I remembered about the canary and said in my mind, “Maybe next time a bird poops $100 on my head.” Well, it turns out that my budgie was the one that needed a friend after all.

Active and smoke-free BY MICHAEL HERMAN Yahk Elementary School

If you want to be active and smoke-free, first you have to be smoke-free. This is because smoking makes it hard to breathe, but breathing is critical for being athletic. Plus, smoking is unhealthy

and is bad for the heart, but running or taking a walk is very healthy for you. Every morning before school, I run one kilometre and then, when I get back home, I do yoga for 10 minutes for my exercise and health. You should as well exercise and eat healthy, too!

Funds help Slave Lake SUBMITTED Recently Prince Charles Secondary School Grade 9 student Aliehs Abbey initiated a very successful fund raising drive to assist High School students in Slave Lake after the devastating fires there. Aliehs, what prompted your desire to raise the money? Mrs. Christiansen, my French teacher, used to live there so she would keep us updated every French class. I was feeling very bad for the poor people who had lost their homes and lives and decided to ask if Mrs. C. would be willing to be the teacher supervisor for the fundraising that I was willing to organize. How much money was raised?

We raised $810 by putting 30 jars all around our town of Creston. We also had pizza sales, at $2 a slice, at our school, PCSS. I would like to thank Panago for donating the pizza. I would also like to thank all the shops downtown that were willing to be kind enough to put jars in their stores, to support our fundraising, as well as my French 9/12 class for using class time to organize these fundraisers. Thanks to everyone. How might the money be used? We are hoping to be able to give it to the school so they can buy new books or to do whatever is needed to get all the children back to school within the next year. Did you learn any-

thing by leading this fundraising event? That with all the work and time I put in it pays off when you hear that it will help them. To know you have helped people who never asked for something so tragic and devastating to happen to their lives. Is there any thing else we should know? Recently a Grade 9 student, Zoe Fenrick, came up with the idea to write support letters to the students in Slave Lake. She came up with this idea due to the fact that her previous town had a devastating fire in 2003. She always thought that it would be a thoughtful thing to do and a nice reminder that there were always people thinking and caring about you.

Memories of Wesley


On May 25, Prince Charles Secondary School students and staff received sad news from principal Sharen Popoff: “It is with great sadness that we let you know that Wesley Standen died last night. Wesley was a Grade 12 student who had been in hospital for two weeks battling pneumonia and other health issues. Many of you will know Wesley from seeing him in his wheelchair with a touch screen computer that allowed him to interact with others. “Wesley had cerebral palsy and other serious health issues that made his life very challenging. He was a hockey fan and would look at you so intently with his blue eyes that you knew he had a lot on his mind to share if he could. Wesley will be missed by all who knew him, especially classmates and staff who worked with him closely.” Wesley’s classmates shared their memories: Tessa: “I had lots of fun with Wesley, so much fun. I learned new things with Wesley. Wesley was fun to be with. Wesley made me laugh. Wesley was also happy every day. Wesley brought joy to this school. Wesley was a good friend. Wesley was my best friend. Wesley, I will miss you but I know that you are at peace and free. Love you, Wesley.” Maclean remembers helping

Wes get into his walker. He enjoyed talking to Wes for hours and reading to him on Monday mornings. He remembers playing games with Wes like Scrabble and bingo and he laughs when he thinks of Wes pushing the button so fast that nobody could keep up. He said, “Wes was a very special person and always a very good friend. He meant a lot to me and I will miss him.” Morgan remembers racing Wes with his tricycle. He also remembers the time that Wes was playing bylaw enforcement officer and gave him a ticket for double parking his trike. Jackson wrote the following poem: Smiling laughing at the computer Reading friend I helped him eat Swimming at the pool Bingo I pushed him in his chair He was a good friend I will miss him forever. Jackson also remembers helping push Wes in his chair. He enjoyed visiting with Wes

and Brian while they did physio. Wesley gave him “low fives” when he was feeling good. He helped him eat on his last day of school. Frances: “Wes was a kind, thoughtful person and it was enjoyable to eat lunch with him. He liked to watch me play Wii and he always smiled when I talked to him.” Darren remembers karaoke at Cresteramics with Wes. Wes looked cool with the microphone and his Bieber hair to go along with the Bieber music.

TAKE ME HOME Ginger Ginger is a short-haired, light orange spayed female. Like most orange kitties, this girl is very affectionate and mellow. She is socialised to other cats and humans and would love a home where she could get lots of attention and cuddles, and spend her days lying in the sunshine.

Resource centre looking for downtown property BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Town council heard a plea for help last week, but it wasn’t help in the form of money. Representatives of the Creston and District Community Resource Centre (CRC) Society reported at the June 14 regular meeting that the organization is looking for a suitable downtown property to build a new facility. CRC operates a couple of dozen social services, most on contract with the provincial government. It currently uses four different locations, including the second floor of the Family Practice medical clinic, Creston Education Centre, the day care on Canyon Street beside Prince Charles Secondary School and the school district-owned building in Kinsmen Park. “To give you an idea of these diverse services, we provide early intervention services to children under the age of six,” said CRC executive director Serena Naeve. “This includes the First Steps infant/toddler daycare centre for children between the ages of zero and three, the Creston Valley Family Place, an infant development program, a pregnancy outreach program and a parenting support program. “We also provide clinical treatment to children and youth under the age of 19 through the Child and Youth Mental Health program and counselling to women and children who are victims of violence and abuse. We provide treatment to men and support to adults with persistent mental illness in a group format. We also have outreach programming that supports youth in the community to make healthy choices regarding their individual needs and provide the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors. “Last year, our services reached approximately 2,280 people from Creston and surrounding areas. In addition, we also hold two regional contracts and provided service to a total of 11,246 people in the East Kootenay region last year.”

Finance and administration manager Justine Keirn told council the CRC needs an 11,000-square-foot lot on which to construct a suitable building to hold the programs and administration offices. “We have been looking at various properties for approximately two years and have yet to come up with a location and price that would work for the organization,” Naeve said. “We are hoping council will be able to help us or at least help us get the word out that we are looking.” Council Briefs •Council gave the go-ahead to the Creston Wave Swim Club to allow visiting families to camp on the community complex grounds during a swim meet on June 25-26. Community complex staff have already approved the request, which has been a practice for many years. •A written request was received from a Canyon Street business to make alterations to the Cook Street parking lot to enable easier access by large delivery trucks in the alley. The owner of Maggie’s Gluten Free Kitchen, Margaret Zsoltaros, requested changes to the curbing and parking spaces to allow large trucks to back up to the former Garden Bakery loading doors to make pickups and deliveries. A report from Colin Farynowski, director of engineering, presented council with three possible options. Option 1 would remodel some curbs, eliminate 10 parking spaces and involve beefing up the parking lot to take the weight of heavy delivery trucks, with an estimated cost of $69,500. Option 2 would modify some curbs and eliminate two parking spaces, at a cost of about $7,500. Option 3 would be to maintain the status quo. Farynowski explained that the town is under no obligation to accommodate the access request and one councillor pointed out the parking lot revitalization was completed before Zsoltaros leased the building. Council instructed the engineer to 13

have further discussions with Zsoltaros and to invite her to speak directly to council about the issue to see if there is a resolution that works for both the town and the business. •A letter of support will be provided to the District of Kent, which is objecting to the province about the municipal police service agreement with the RCMP, particularly with regard to costs borne by small municipalities. •Ross Beddoes, building inspector, reported that there were fewer building permit applications than he had anticipated in May, with only a couple for single family residences. The dollar value of permits issued in the month was $7.835 million, however. The bulk of the value was in permits issued for the construction of the Ramada Inn and Conference Centre at Highway 3 and 3A and the arena renovations at Creston and District Community Complex. •Mayor Ron Toyota was instructed by council to release $9,000 in community development grant funds for heritage murals to be painted on the west side of Pharmasave on 11th Avenue North. A select committee will issue a call for proposals from artists. •Toyota, who volunteered at Tim Hortons in its recent Camp Day promotion, announced that the local store raised $3,200 for the national campaign.

Glad Tidings hosting annual conference this weekend GLAD TIDINGS PENTECOSTAL CHURCH

The annual conference for Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church will be held from June 24-26. The theme for this conference is “In Passionate Pursuit of Jesus”. The keynote speaker is Afshin Javid. Born into a Muslim family in Iran, Javid was such a devout and fervent follower of Islam that he would have given his life for his faith. At the age of 12, he enlisted with the Baseej — a branch of the Hezbollah, a religious Islamic group — to walk on mine bombs. This act of faith was to clear a path for soldiers and to bring honor to the Allah. Passionate about furthering his studies in Islam, he studied in Pakistan, and was so devoted he would read the Koran cover to cover every 10 days. His original mission was to preach Islam to the non-Muslims in North America. While en route, Afshin was caught with 30 illegal passports. He was detained in Pudu prison, and eventually became the religious leader there. In his tiny prison cell, which he shared with five others, Jesus Christ appeared to him in person. He commissioned Afshin to tell the world of his

forgiveness and mercy. Since this encounter, he has been busy sharing the Gospel around the world. His heart is for all who are lost and has a

Afshin Javid deep love for the Muslims. He has recently started a ministry called I Am Thirsty. This ministry is calling one million Christians to find one non-believer to pray, fast, love, share and mentor for one year. He and his wife, Mellissa, are currently pastoring a church in North Vancouver for Iranians and Canadians. They have been married since 1994 and have four children. Afshin has written his powerful testimony into a book, As Easy as Drinking Water. Pastor Elaine Hauser will be

leading the praise and worship, as well as sharing in the afternoon session. She co-pastors with her husband, Paul, and they have five children. They founded the Ark Christian Ministries International, in Airdrie, Alta. Her heartbeat and passion is to see this generation of men, women, youth and children, rise up to operate in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. “The kingdom of heaven is at hand” is a present tense statement that Jesus spoke about. Elaine’s mission is to see the body of Christ began manifesting this statement and walk in the absolute truth and glory of God. Their children will be attending the conference and the older ones are part of the worship team. Conference services and sessions take place at 7 p.m. June 24, 9:30 a.m., 1:30 and 6 p.m. June 25, and 10:30 a.m. June 26 at Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church. This conference is for men, women, youth and children, and all are welcome. An offering will be taken in each service. Child care will be available for each session throughout the weekend. For more information, contact Pastor Carl Sawler at 250428-7418 or Cynthia Knutson at 250-428-2755.

Osprey cam up and running for summer


The osprey adults have returned from warmer climates, the nest has a near-full complement of eggs, and the cameras are rolling at This year’s nest cam will once again show live streaming images of the hatching, feeding and daily life of a pair of osprey and their eggs. This project is a joint initiative between the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) and the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA), where the nest is located. “We had a great season last year,” said John Krebs, crew lead with the FWCP in the Columbia region, which is a partnership between BC Hydro, the province of B.C., and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. “All three eggs hatched successfully and two of the three chicks fledged at the end of the season. It was fascinating to watch their behaviour and to have a ‘birds-eye’ view into the nest. This year, we are hoping to see similar nest success.” The first egg was observed in the nest May 13, and by


May 17 the tally had risen to three. Two hatched late last week, but the third was still unhatched at press time. Typically ospreys lay three or four eggs, with the eggs being laid one to three days apart and hatching in the same sequence. This means that if food is scarce, the older, larger chick will likely out-compete its siblings and survive. If, on the other hand, there is plentiful food then all three chicks will have a better

chance of survival. “We think that the food supply should be relatively good this year,” added Krebs. “In 2009, the Ministry of Environment estimated a record-high 48 million kokanee in the main body of Kootenay Lake, of which 33 million were fry. Many of those fry will now be adults and a prime food source for this osprey family.” That plentiful food supply is aided by the nutrient restoration program in Kootenay

Lake that is co-ordinated jointly by the province of B.C. and the FWCP, with the South Arm nutrient additions being funded through the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho. This program feeds the microscopic phytoplankton that is the base for the food web in the lake’s ecosystem. If all goes well, the osprey chicks will take nearly two months to fledge and then remain on, or around, the nest until early September, before heading south for winter. Therefore, there is ample time to watch the birds’ behaviour throughout the summer. “It really is something special to hear the chicks start screeching and moving out of the way prior to an incoming parent flying in with a talon full of fish,” said Carla Ahern from the CVWMA. “This project provides a first class opportunity to view nature without getting in its way.” Visit for live streaming images of the osprey and for more information on the FWCP visit

Osprey Facts

•Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) return to the same nest, made of sticks, often located on man-made elevated structures such as power poles, buoys and bridges as well as cliffs and snags. •The diet of an osprey consists nearly entirely of live fish. The nutrient restoration program in Kootenay Lake has helped boost kokanee numbers is, therefore, playing an important role in supporting the osprey population. •Ospreys can become completely submerged when diving for fish and still take off with their prey, unlike bald eagles, which pluck the fish from the surface. •There have been reports of ospreys drowning after locking into a fish that is too big and strong to bring to the surface. •Ospreys were once threatened around the world primarily due to the use of DDT and other pesticides, but their numbers have rebounded in recent decades. •They are the most widely distributed bird of prey, found on all continents except Antarctica. •Ospreys in the Columbia Basin usually migrate in winter to the southern United States or Mexico. •Ospreys are unique in that they have an opposable toe that can face forward or backward. When sitting on a branch it usually has three toes on the front and one on the back. When holding a fish it usually has two toes on each side of the fish. When flying with its prey the osprey invariably flies with the fish head first to reduce wind resistance.

Creston Valley Advance Thursday, June 23, 2011

spoRTs 19



The Creston Valley Youth Soccer Association’s U-16 boys team: (back row, from left) Coach Dan Pawsey, Patrick More, Nick Mottl, Devon Ferguson, Niel Jacobsen, Robin Kessler, Ethan VandenBrink, Seth Scmidt, Dean Torginson, Jake Van Dok, coach Bill Ferguson; (front row, from left) Lukas Gribbon, Bret Sutcliffe, Max Sombrowski, Brayden Czar, Kail Huber, Kieran Posnikoff, Jack Pawsey, Greg Benty. Missing: Troy Messinger (injured).


The Creston Valley Youth Soccer Association’s U-16 boys team, which has already qualified for the provincial championships (July 6-10) in Penticton, won gold in Montana at the Three Blind Refs tournament in Kalispell on the first weekend of June. Coming off the suc-

cess of a home tournament where the boys won all three games to win first place, the team anticipated a challenging tournament against some much larger soccer clubs. The first game was against the Idaho Thunder. Despite a clear advantage in possession, Creston had difficulty getting the ball on net. After a scoreless first half, Idaho began to improve their play.

As luck would have it, they found a seam between the defence and scored late in the game to take the lead. After some anxious minutes, Creston was able to tie the game on a beautiful giveand-go play between Niel Jacobsen and Max Sombrowski, with Jacobsen directing the ball into the far corner. The game ended in a 1-1 tie. See SOCCER, page 20

from the boys that it is very sad to see him leave us, but we are so happy that he gets this opportunity. Joe not only was a great coach, but a great mentor to the players on a personal level.” One of Martin’s last official acts as general manager was to be part of finding his replacement, and he brought Heaven to the forefront for the club. “From day one, Joe said that Brent was our guy,” Endicott said. “It’s rare that when you leave a job that your employer requests you help find your replacement, but that is how much respect our executive committee has for Joe, as we knew he would find us the best person he could.” Martin starts his new job later this summer in Merritt. “I would like to thank all the Thunder Cat supporters and volunteers who helped put the Thunder Cats on the map,” he said. “I hope a championship is in the near future.”

From page 19 The second game was against a strong Calgary Blizzard squad. A hard fought match, Creston earned a 1-0 victory on a shot by Jacobsen off a corner kick from Devon Ferguson. The third match was a little easier against a youthful squad from Kootenay South. After first-half goals by Jacobsen and Nick Mottl, Greg Benty added an insurance goal in the second half and Creston controlled the play and cruised to a 3-0 victory. This set up a championship match against the host Flathead Football Club. Heading into the final, the teams had identical records (in tournament play, six points are awarded for a win, one point for a shutout and one point per goal scored up to three points). The game started off with some nice passing by both sides. Creston keeper Brayden Czar made two great saves early to keep the score at 0-0. About halfway through the first half, Sombrowski scored off a rebound to make it 1-0. A few minutes later, after some excellent work in the corner by the Blitzz, Dean Torginson was hauled down in the box. Jacobsen scored on the penalty kick to put the Blitzz up 2-0. Creston kept up the pressure in the second half and took over the game. They added three more goals in the second half; a beautiful passing play saw the ball moved nine times before Robin Kessler buried it, then a nice individual effort saw Benty deke a defender, turn and find the back of the net. Finally, Jacobsen outran one defender and

outmuscled a second, then blasted the ball far corner. The game ended 5-0 and Creston won gold. Bill Ferguson and Dan Pawsey have done an excellent job coaching the team. Throughout the tournament, the opposition was frustrated by the onside trap of the Creston fullbacks, led by Patrick More, Ethan VandenBrink, Seth Schmidt, Bret Sutcliffe and Lukas Gribbon. Every player plays. Every player knows their role on the team. They play a great possession game with tic-tac-toe passing and is beginning to gel as a team. While it is mostly the same group that won the junior boys high school championship last fall for Prince Charles Secondary School, there are three transfers from the East Kootenay Rovers, Robin Kessler and Ethan VandenBrink of Cranbrook and Max Sombrowski of Fernie. •The U-16 boys team returned from Lethbridge with a second place finish at the annual Lethbridge FC tournament. One of the bigger tournaments in Alberta, it features several teams vying for the provincial championship. Creston started off with a 2-2 tie against Canmore, then lost for only the third time this season to a large and powerful Coaldale team. They finished with two victories, defeating Okotoks and Edmonton International Elite. The season record now stands at 10 wins, three losses and two ties. •The Creston Blitzz U-17 squad defeated Columbia Valley in Cranbrook on June 7 to win a berth in the provincial championships. This is the second year in a row coach Todd Hawton’s squad will represent the Kootenays.




Small jobs accepted for the remainder of June Wishing Tony all the best in his future endeavors. Thank you to all of our valued customers.
