Twenty-five running in Nov. 19 municipal elections BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Creston Valley voters should expect to hear a lot about local politics in the coming month. A total of 25 candidates are vying for 10 positions on Creston town council, the Regional District of Central Kootenay board and School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake). Only RDCK areas A and C will be represented by unopposed candidates. Area C director Larry Binks and Area A director Garry Jackman, both who have completed one term in office, will be elected by acclamation. Area B director John Kettle, who served as the RDCK board chair for the last year and who doubles as chair of the Kootenay East Regional Hospital District, will be opposed by Ed McNiven of Erickson. Creston’s mayor will continue to be a familiar face after the Nov. 19 election, with incumbent Ron Toyota taking on the man he defeated for the job in 2008, Joe Snopek. Snopek was mayor for two terms and also served as a town councillor before that.

PAINTING THE STREAM — Friday morning was a busy one at the Creston Education Centre gymnasium, as students from Canyon-Lister Elementary School,

Homelinks and Adam Robertson Elementary School joined forces on a Stream of Dreams project, which focuses on keeping watersheds and drains clean so that all — even the fish — can enjoy clean water. Laurel and Brian Ewashen (CLES) and Laurie Riehl (Homelinks) started planning this venture last spring and appreciate the contributions of Wynndel Box and Lumber and Home Hardware Building Centre for their contributions of wood and primer, and Tiffany Gorham for cutting out the fish templates. The final project, a fish mural, is designed for the community to enjoy, and it can be seen on the Centennial Park fence facing Erickson Street.

Town considers tax exemptions BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

TODAY'S WEATHER

Six properties could benefit from not paying the town’s portion of their property taxes, Creston town council decided on Oct. 11.

A permissive tax exemption bylaw will be introduced to allow the owners to direct more funds into their not-for-profit services. That bylaw must be passed before the end of October, director of finance and corporate services Steffan Klassen said. Applications for exemptions for the

Exemptions a small fraction of budget From page 1 “These services all fall within the town’s priorities,” Klassen told town council. If all six properties are exempted, the cost to the town would be about $9,000, which equates to about 0.17 per cent of the town budget. “That would make a total of 1.8 per cent of our budget would be paid by other taxpayers to make up for all exemptions,” he said. “It does eventually add up — it’s like taking a forced donation from taxpayers. But it also allows council to say, ‘We’ve given at the office,’ when it gets requests for grants-in-aid and other funds from these organizations.” Properties being considered include: •1913 Cook St., where Creston New Life Christian Church operates a thrift shop; •116 Northwest Blvd., where Kootenai Community Centre Society (KCCS) operates New Life Furniture and Recycling, profits from which help pay for its services; •130 Eighth Ave. S., where KCCS operates Teddy Bear Day Care. In the past, only the building has been tax-exempt, and not the land; •1230 Cook St., where KCCS offers youth activities and Prince Charles Secondary School operates a storefront school; •A room in the basement of 1230 Canyon St., or Creston Place, which accommodates the Creston Judo Club, which guarantees no child will be turned away from participating if their family can’t afford membership fees; and •221 11th Ave. N., leased by the Sasquatch Arts and Music Society for public entertainment events. The exemption would be contingent on the society producing a certificate of incorporation and a lease through 2013. Council Briefs •The Town of Creston will not likely participate in the Pitch-In Canada cleanup campaign after the success of last year ’s Dash for Trash, which occurred just before Creston Valley Blossom Festival. •Council voted to support the Lower Kootenay Band’s (LKB) application for an Aboriginal agriculture initiative proposal that would expand agriculture on the LKB reserve. •Town staff will help co-ordinate a community proposal to

get a Columbia Basin Trust grant for youth activities. The grants are for $100,000 per community spread over a four-year period. •A letter was received from Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall in which she explained information about mining exploration activities now in progress in and around the Arrow Creek and Duck Lake watersheds. •Council voted to support a request from AB-BC Recreation and Resources to open Ricky’s All Day Grill an additional hour on Friday and Saturday nights, until 1 a.m. The restaurant is being constructed as part of the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre currently being built at the intersection of Highways 3 and 3A. •A plan to install a mural including approximately 150 painted wooden fish on the Centennial Park fence was approved. Creston school students worked last week to create a “Stream of Dreams to raise awareness about the importance of water as a natural resource. •A parcel of land adjacent to the waste water treatment plant will be leased for five years to Don Sciog for farming purposes. The 14-acre property will lease for $1,625 annually. •A grant application will be made to Tire Stewardship BC to cover half the cost of installing a coloured rubber surface on the Rotary Splash Park in Centennial Park. The surface, with an anticipated eight-year life, would eliminate the need for the twice-yearly non-slip coating application the concrete surface now gets at a cost of $5,000 a year. The town’s cost of the overlay would be $17,500. •Council gave Coun. Wes Graham approval to attend a meeting he has arranged with the Minister of Transportation later this month. Mayor Ron Toyota will also attend, along with town manager Lou Varela, who will be in Vancouver on a course at the time. The meeting is to discuss Highway 3 realignment to Cook Street. •Coun. Judy Gadicke reported that the abandoned mineshaft in the Bayonne Creek area that her husband, Ken, fell into with his snowmobile last winter has now been filled in. The Ministry of Energy and Mines contracted with Hedlund Construction to seal the exposed shaft and the work was recently completed, she said.

Society gets post office grant BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

The Three Voices of Healing Society’s Wellness Centre was the recipient of a $46,225 grant from the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health last week. Norm Ouellet, Canada Post area manager for the Kootenays, presented the cheque to the centre’s executive director, Delena Tikk. “I’m proud to tell you that employees of the Creston post office pitched $315 of their own money to kick start this year’s fundraising campaign,” Ouellet said. Kootenay offices raised $11,000 this year, well over their target of $8,600, he added. A total of $200,000 was raised in B.C. “I am very grateful to accept this cheque on behalf of Three Voices,” Tikk said. She said the money would be used to bring in a clinical psychologist to work with clients, a service that the society was no longer able to afford before the grant was awarded. “The Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health is a registered not-for-profit charity that operates at arm’s length from Canada Post,” Ouellet said. “Since 2008, Canada Post customers, employ-

Thirteen running for Advance survey offers big prizes council, eight for SD8 Advance Staff

From page 1 Thirteen candidates are jostling for six town council positions, including incumbents Tanya Ducharme, Judy Gadicke, Wesly Graham, Jerry Schmalz and Joanna Wilson. Len Folkman is the only incumbent not running in the coming election. Challengers include Rhonda Barter, Malcolm Ferguson, Renee Kyle, Justin Lysohirka, Louis Mihaly, Scott Veitch, Ingrid Voigt and former councillor Ed Vondracek, who failed in his 2008 re-election bid.

School board chair Mel Joy, who represents the Town of Creston, is being challenged by Paulette Francoeur and Heather Suttie. In the school district’s South Rural zone, incumbents Annette Hambler-Pruden and Verna MayersMcKenzie have three challengers. Vladimir Certik, Bob Gollan and Rebecca Huscroft have each filed nomination papers. The Nov. 10 edition of the Creston Valley Advance will feature complete election coverage, including information about each of the candidates.

All it takes is five minutes, and you could be the proud winner of a $1,400 Dutailier glider and ottoman. That’s the grand prize, donated by Vance Bros. Countrywide Furniture, in an online survey hosted by the Creston Valley Advance. Other prizes include a Christmas gift basket from Tigz Designs and an area rug from Nufloors. The survey questions are about the Advance’s coverage, what readers value most and local purchasing habits. “This is an excellent opportunity to find out what our readers think,” said publisher Lorne Eckersley. “We appreciate the support of our sponsors on this project.” For more details,

Very interesting. With nominations now closed for the November town council, regional district and school board elections, we will be treated to some hotly contested races. Only two incumbents, Regional District of Central Kootenay directors Larry Binks and Garry Jackman have been given a free pass — all the others will have to fight to retain their positions. Democracy, it appears, is alive and well in the Creston Valley. I suppose it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there is so much interest in town council, with 14 candidates fighting for six positions. Because Creston town council is the only government that meets locally, it is of far greater appeal — you have to be pretty committed to want to make a regular drive over to Nelson for regional district and school board meetings, especially in the winter. A scan through the list of nine newcomers who will challenge five incumbents brings to mind all kinds of possibilities. Some possible configurations for the next council could end up to be a major train wreck, given the personalities involved. Other combinations could result in very good councils. Predicting local election outcomes is akin to buying lottery tickets, but I do think there will be some new faces on the next council. If there is any surprise about the mayoralty race, it is that it will be fought only by the incumbent and his predecessor. Rumors had been rampant for months that others were

Making sense of the code

The first time I saw one or at least noticed it was two weeks ago and in a magazine I was looking at. It was vaguely recognisable as a barcode but I wasn’t really sure; it looks more like a tiny crossword puzzle with small squares, a lot of them filled in with no discernable pattern. According to the allknowing all-seeing Internet, these barcodetype things are called QR codes, the QR for quick response. I have also seen it referred to as a snap code but that does not appear to be in wide use. It is a cellphone readable barcode that can store website URLs, plain text, phone numbers, email addresses and any other alphanumeric data. Apparently (Internet again) they originated in Japan in 1994 and only very recently made their way over here. There were first used to code car parts in the car industry (Wikipedia) but have been picked up by businesses and organisations to provide instant access to their websites and email, among other things. They can be found in magazines, on business cards and on buses, and I saw a very big one the other day in Kelowna on a roadside sign advertising a new condo

building. With your iPhone, Smartphone, Android phone or whatever you are using that comes with the scanner, you can instantly access the website that tells you a

A quick trip to the Internet again just answered a question I had that I wished I hadn’t. The new Canadian passports are using QR codes. The company doing them is CodeZ QR, an American Company out of Houston, Texas, which is a division of the much larger American Company COPI. Why are Americans claiming they need jobs when we give them ours? We are such good friends. It had to happen: The last book to arrive in the mail for the library collection is titled The Dragon with the Girl Tattoo. Also just in are two copies of the new Lee Child book, The Affair, and the audio book. I have the audio book. Child (who is actually a British writer named Jim Grant) is good. The Okanagan system has had over 350 reserves on the book, but our reserve list is somewhat shorter — a great deal shorter, in fact. Tom Cruise must have paid someone big money because he is playing Jack Reacher in the 2013 movie, One Shot, a Jack Reacher novel written in 2005. The book character Reacher is six-foot-five; Cruise is five-foot-six. I don’t think so and not only because of his height. Ann Day is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

@ Your Library Ann Day

300-foot condo in a building in Kelowna is going to cost more your house on two acres in Creston, your trailer in Yuma and your RV put together. When you scan the QR code in a magazine you can go directly to the sales site of the kitchen cupboards you are looking at and order them. You and your money can part company with even great ease now with another technological aid to capitalism. From a more pragmatic, library perspective, if library items had the code on them, you could scan it with your phone, which would take you right to the library website and your account and you could renew them in seconds if you needed to.

Invasion ruins Libya

To the Editor: In the Sept. 22 issue of the Creston Valley Advance, Vladimir Certik wrote about the travesty being perpetrated in Libya by the Western powers. I wholly concur with his statements. Libya was country with a modern developed infrastructure, and all this has been bombed systematically. What has this destruction got to do with “protecting the lives of civilians”? Libya’s multi-billion-dollar development of vast underground aquifers had been dubbed the “eighth wonder of the world”. This has been destroyed and people are now without water. In April the Down syndrome school in Tripoli was bombed, in June the University of Tripoli was bombed, in July the Great Manmade River irrigation system, which also supplied Libyans with drinking water was bombed, and in August the Hospital at Zliten was bombed, an act which is against all international law. Today, the “New Libya’s” former high-quality free health care is non-existent, hospitals are without power, without pharmaceuticals, incubators, life support machines or surgery services. All this tragedy, and NATO has a clear mandate to protect civilian lives? Come on: We are fed nothing but lies — this is another Iraq situation. Rebuilding contracts are already being divided up between contractors in the West. At the Friends of Libya meeting held in Paris on Sept. 1, hosted by British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, a British official is quoted as saying in the Economist, “NATO’s involvement in the Libyan uprising means that we now own it.” There are already talks going on as to how Libya’s oil will be shared. Yes, Gaddafi was a tyrant, but the West has tolerated and supported many worse dictators when it suited their purposes. Gaddafi had created a modern nation from which his people benefited greatly. An alliance of 28 nations, of which Canada was one, descended on a nation of seven million, a modern nation, reducing it to a pre-

Opinion Line

industrial age. I am very, very ashamed of my country being a part of this. Gaddafi’s greatest crime was that he was a strong influence on the oil producing nations and he was advocating that the price of oil should be based on gold rather than on the U.S. dollar. This would have been the last straw to an already bankrupt U.S. Alex Ewashen Creston

Concerned about airport To the Editor: As Creston and area prepares for another municipal election, I want to bring to voters’ and taxpayers’ attention to some of the issues I have had over the last 15 months with some of our public officials and the airport society. As a pilot and a former airplane owner, I rented a tie-down spot at the Creston airport. Last summer, I came home from holidays in July and discovered the airport society had moved my plane without permission and upon inquiry as to why, was given three different reasons by three different people, none of the reasons constituting an emergency, which I could have accepted. I approached the society last August and requested an apology and assurance that my plane and others would not be touched without permission again because planes are personal property, they are expensive personal property and unknown handling of one’s plane could create a dangerous in-flight incident due to unrecognized damage to the plane by an unauthorized move. As I explained my feelings to the five board members in attendance at the August meeting, one of the board members said, “You write an apology and we’ll sign it.” He then turned to the other four board members and stated, “Let’s raise the tie down fees to $100 per month and be done with it!” The fees are currently $15 per month. I took this to mean that the board was trying to drive out anybody without a lot of money. Within a few weeks, the society drew up a new contract demanding pilots sign it, essentially then agreeing that the

society could touch anybody’s plane at any time for any purpose. Upon inquiry with several other airports in B.C., this new contractual agreement has no equal. Also of note is that some of the rules in this contract do not apply if the pilot owns a hangar. Most of the airport society members either don’t have a plane or have access to a hangar. Over the last year, I have contacted our mayor on many occasions and even made a submission to town council about my concerns with the airport society. Mayor Ron Toyota was the original president of the airport society but apparently he has no clout with it anymore. In fact, after three written submissions from three different pilots complaining about the society and the way they have been treated, Mr. Toyota just tells me he needs more complaints. To my knowledge, at this point, three pilots have sold their planes at deep losses to themselves just to get away from the misery of dealing with this self-serving society. Other pilots are upset, but not willing to make noise because the society has so much power over them and they still want to keep their planes here in Creston, so they suffer in silence and grudgingly comply with the demands. The society is now building a $375,000 “clubhouse” cleverly disguised as an emergency services building. The photo in the Aug. 25 Advance has a strategically placed ambulance in the background of the site of the new clubhouse to fool the taxpaying public into thinking that their Book your money is going to Bottle promote Drive, the safety and well-being of the community. a great idea Our elected officials, Mayor Toyota for a and Area B Director, John Kettle are not FUNDby backing doing the voters any service RAISER! or supporting this project. The current building serving as the airport terminal is more than adequate for the present and near future activity at the Creston airport. There is plenty of training space at the rec centre and fire halls in the area without spending public money on another “emergency” or “training” facility. Make no mistake: This building is really a fancy clubhouse paid for with public money that will serve the wealthy few. Make an educated choice this November when we elect the men and women who will represent us and spend our money. Keith Goforth Erickson

NDP to fight against smart meters

With the beginning of October, MLAs I have to say that it is frustrating are back in the legislature. For the first enough that the Liberals ignore the time in a long time, we’re having a fall countless petitions NDP members have session. Prior to this session the BC presented in the legislature and the facts Liberal government had us sit for a we present during debates, but to see mere 24 days out of 16 months. So as you can imagine, I am very glad to be getting back to the house to raise your concerns and address the issues important to this region. One issue that I am hearing more and more about is smart meters. Since Sept. 30 when the Union of BC Municipalities Michelle Mungall passed a motion calling for a moratorium on BC Hydro’s installation of these devices, the issue has really them ignore the pleas of local governpicked up steam.

tion and reward those who use energy in off-peak hours. However, when we look at other jurisdictions, this just isn’t the case. Last year, my NDP colleague John Horgan, MLA for Juan de Fuca and Opposition critic for energy, noted in a press release that “the Ontario experience has shown that smart meters don't work when it comes to conserving energy and saving money. Instead, they are proving to do just the opposite.” In Toronto alone, 84 per cent of residents’ bills went up as a result of smart meters. Supporting home retrofits, public transit and stronger emissions standards have better results for energy conservation and saving people money. Just think how much we could have done with $1 billion. Not only should the public have been consulted on smart meters since they are being forced into private homes, but there should have been some public oversight in reviewing such a major capital expenditure by our public utility.

Service excellence creates memorable visit

It is always interesting to get away and see how the rest of the world functions in comparison with our little valley. Case in point: On a recent trip to Edmonton, we overnighted in Airdrie, which is just north of Calgary, and as we always do, seized the opportunity to check out the community complex. In this case, it was Genesis Place, which, if you ever get the chance, you should check out. Being slightly biased, of course, I think ours is better, but their facility, done in two phases, boasts six pools, a waterslide, gymnasiums, a 13,000-square-

foot fitness centre, two indoor field houses, a state-of-the-art gymnastics facility and an 200-metre indoor running track. Almost identical, eh?

From the Centre Neil Ostafichuk

Our tour guide at the Airdrie complex, Brook, is in charge of the customer service representatives (CSRs), of which they have about 25 in total. I first spoke with Brook many years ago when we were in the design phase and picked her brain about subjects that were foreign to us — such as memberships, fitness facilities and leisure pools — but have since become old hat. Her passion for customer service is awe-inspiring — she differentiates between regular customer service, which is expected, but not always achieved (as we found in other parts of our round trip to Edmonton), and the next level, which is service excellence. You know when you have experienced this because you leave feeling better than when you arrived. It doesn’t have to be huge — little things like the person greets you with a smile that is genuine, gives their full attention or acknowledges your existence if they are busy with another customer and goes that

extra little step that they really don’t have to but do. One small example is when we were leaving Genesis Place, the CSR stopped what she was doing, which happened to be processing a lobby full of schoolkids, and called across to us, asking if we enjoyed our swim and that we have a safe trip, obviously knowing via osmosis that we were travellers (or maybe I just look that odd that they knew I wasn’t from them parts). I hear many similar conversations at our facility, where our CSRs and other staff know many people by name (another small-town benefit) and joke around or are glad to see people use the facility. There always has to be a “small world” experience in any of our travels — in this case it was at a luggage store in a mega mall just south of Airdrie where my better half was examining wallets. As probably most women will attest, you of course can’t just look at a few; you have to carefully examine all 80 of them while the salesperson waited quietly and I attempted to slash my wrists with a plastic spoon I found. In a very short length of time, my wife discovered that the woman was from Yahk and that her parents still live there. All of a sudden, the atmosphere perked up as it always does when you find that common connection a long ways from home. Service excellence, no matter what business, is looking for that common connection or personalizing the experience so

you feel that you are the most important customer at that moment. We should be treating people the way we would want to be treated ourselves. Don’t forget the John Bucyk Arena grand opening is Oct. 23 from 2-5 p.m., followed by a free swim — check out details in our advertisement on page 11 of this issue of the Creston Valley Advance. Neil Ostafichuk is the recreation supervisor at the Creston and District Community Complex.

NDP will raise issue

From page 7 If there had, I might not be even writing this column. However, the Liberals meddled with the BC Utilities Commission and removed its ability to review such expenditures. Instead of ignoring community leaders, the premier’s response after the UBCM resolution should have been to send the $1 billion project to the independent BCUC for review. My NDP colleagues and I will continue to raise this issue in the house. In advance, I thank you for continuing to share with me your concerns on this and many other issues. Michelle Mungall is the member of the legislative assembly for the Nelson-Creston provincial riding, and is the Opposition critic for advanced education, youth and labour market development.

Cats win one of three BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Creston Valley Thunder Cats kicked off a three-game weekend with a 6-2 win over the Columbia Valley Rockies on Oct. 13. “I’m really happy with how they played that game,” said Garth Ludwar, assistant coach of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey league team. “There were a couple of little mental mistakes, but all in all I’m happy with the team.” Scoring started 30 seconds into the game when Jovi Fabbri scored on a power play, a few minutes before a Rockies goal. He scored a second power-play goal late in the first period. Trevor LeBlanc, Trevor Hanna and Brock Ward added goals in the second period, LeBlanc’s on a power play, and the visiting Rockies also netted a second. Andrew Hodder scored the Thunder Cats’ final goal of the game unassisted in the third period. The team stuck to its systems, Ludwar said, and he was impressed by the performance of C.J. Caputo. “He might not have scored, but his effort was definitely appreciated, and the rest of the team stepped up to match his effort,” said Ludwar. The Thunder Cats continued to capitalize on power plays in Friday’s game against the Castlegar Rebels, which they ultimately lost 5-3. Brandon Formosa and Scott Swiston scored power-play goals in the first period, edged by three Castlegar goals. “Defensively, our zone broke down and they scored two that shouldn’t have happened,” said Ludwar. A lack of effort in the second period led to a fourth Rebels goal, but Jesse Collins managed a power-play goal for the Thunder Cats in the third before the Rebel scored an emptynetter. “We definitely stepped it up in the third period,” said Ludwar. “We were a different team … but we dug ourselves into that hole and didn’t come back.”

On Saturday, the Thunder Cats travelled to Washington to take on the Spokane Braves, a game that ended in an unfortunate, but not unexpected, 3-2 loss. “Its always tough to come out with a W in Spokane because they’ve got the hometown advantage.” The game started with a Thunder Cats goal by Swiston 40 seconds into the period, with no Spokane response until there were four minutes left. The Thunder Cats could have dominated the period if the team had been more focused. “I thought we should have had a fairly good lead by the end of the first if we’d been playing our game,” said Ludwar. As with the night before, things broke down in the second period, when the Thunder Cats allowed two more Spokane goals due to penalty trouble — they racked up 38 minutes and two game misconducts in that period alone. Despite the discouraging second period, Formosa managed a single Thunder Cats goal in the third period. “It’s pretty hard to come back when you’re shorthanded,” said Ludwar. This weekend, the Thunder Cats travel to Kimberley on Friday night to take on the Dynamiters, who visit Creston on Saturday. “We’re looking forward to it because last time they gave us a drubbing,” said Ludwar. “We’re looking forward to the games and rising to the occasion.”

Season over for tennis club

Volleyball champs

CRESTON VALLEY TENNIS CLUB

Creston Valley Tennis Club members ushered out the summer with a smash during a seasonending doubles tournament Sept. 24. Brilliant blue skies and 30-degree temperatures — the last of the year — provided perfect conditions for a daylong event attended by 20 players, with ages ranging from 11 to senior citizens. The 14 men and six women competed in an ongoing series of 10-minute mini-matches, each with a different partner, earning ribbons for every victory.

The Prince Charles Secondary School junior boys and girls won their home tournament on the weekend. The boys had a four-team draw and played Elkford in the final. The girls had an eight-team tournament and defeated Mt. Baker (Cranbrook) in the final. The junior girls (above) are coached by Gillian Kemle and Dianne MacDonald and the junior boys (below) are coached by Mike Nelson. Riley Hills was named PCSS MVP for the boys’ team and Kelsey Lind was names PCSS MVP for the girls’ team.

At the end of the day, Clayton Fenrick and Brian Bell had amassed the most ribbons (10) to share the men’s title, while Kim Harding topped the women’s division with eight ribbons. Ani McDowell and Irmgard Truemper tied for second with seven apiece. It was the first such event for the club since a similar tournament was first held in 2010. The response was so enthusiastic that the club is considering holding the tournaments more frequently in 2012. The club is open to new members of all ages, with perks including fun tournaments, club nights, instruction (for youths) and access to the tennis courts for night play. Membership dues are used to pay for maintenance and upgrading of the courts.

Women encouraged to get tested during Pap Awareness Week BC CANCER AGENCY

The BC Cancer Agency is urging women to get screened for cervical cancer by getting a Pap test during Pap Awareness Week, which runs Oct. 23-29. In Creston, testing will be available by appointment any time next week, as well as on Nov. 3 from 5-7 p.m. at the Options for Sexual Health clinic at 312 15th Ave. N. Call 250428-3877 for an appointment. A Pap test is used to collect a sample of cells from the cervix, which is then sent to the BC Cancer Agency to check for any abnormal changes. Pap Awareness Week highlights the importance of regular screening in detecting the early warning signs of cervical cancer. “Women who are screened regularly are at a lower risk for cervical cancer,” said Dr. Dirk van Niekerk, medical leader of the Cervical Cancer Screening Program at the BC Cancer Agency, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority. “A Pap test can detect precancerous cells, which, if treated early, can stop the cancer from developing. It can also identify cancer at an early stage, when there are more treatment options available and cure rates are over 80 per cent.”

The BC Cancer Agency recommends that women start having Pap tests at age 21 or approximately three years after first sexual contact. Screening should continue every year until a woman has three normal results in a row, and then every two years until age 69. Since the introduction of the B.C.’s Cervical Cancer Screening Program — the first in the world — in the early ’60s, the province has successfully reduced cervical cancer rates by 70 per cent. “High participation rates have contributed to this success, although there are some age groups and areas of the province where participation rates are lower than average,” explained provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. “That’s why we need to continue efforts to increase awareness across B.C. of regular screening in reducing women’s risk for cervical cancer.” To encourage women to get Pap tests, the BC Cancer Agency focuses on its webbased community engagement campaign — the LACE Campaign (LACECampaign. com). The main message of “Live Aware. Create Empowerment” (LACE) is that Pap tests are important and

empowering, and they save lives. The goal of LACE is to increase participation rates through awareness of how, with a simple test, women can prevent cervical cancer. LACE reminds women to get their Pap test regularly and asks women to spread the word to their family and friends. During last year’s campaign, 16 per cent of women tested had never had a Pap before, and about 50 per cent were overdue. If you are a woman who has been putting off getting tested or you don’t have a family doctor, go to LACEcampaign.com now to find a clinic near you. The BC Cancer Agency, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority, is committed to reducing the incidence of cancer, reducing the mortality from cancer, and improving the quality of life of those living with cancer. It provides a comprehensive cancer control program for the people of British Columbia by working with community partners to deliver a range of oncology services, including prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, research, education, supportive care, rehabilitation and palliative care.

Workshop to help non-profits with succession planning KOOTENAY BOUNDARY COMMUNITY SERVICES CO-OPERATIVE On Oct. 29, staff and volunteers of non-profit organizations in the East Kootenay will have the opportunity to work with Linda Fairburn, president of Make Things Happen Ltd. and Canadian bestselling author on the subject of leadership transition. Approximately one half of Canadian non-profit executive directors will reach retirement age by 2020. “This speaker’s tour forms a significant part of our strategic approach to addressing leadership succession in the non-profit sector,” said Eva Hernandez, operations coordinator with the Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative in Nelson. The tour will visit seven communities and will include workshops and consultations to help agencies and the sector overall improve longterm sustainability. A key component will be the training of local consultants to support non-profits with succession planning, thereby leaving a lasting legacy in the Columbia Basin. “Through our partnership with

Columbia Basin Trust, and sponsorship from the United Community Services Co-op, we are pleased to be able to organize this speaking tour and make participation very affordable,” said Hernandez. “I commend the Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative for recognizing the importance of being pro-active in planning for leadership transitions,” said Fairburn. “Very few organizations are prepared for either a retirement or sudden departure of an executive director or program manager, which can throw operations into chaos.” For further information about the speaking tour in Cranbrook, call the co-op office at 250-3526786 or visit www.thekoop.ca/ events. Registration is online. To read more about Linda Fairburn, visit www.makethingshappen.net. The Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative was formed in 2003. Its mission is to work to strengthen its members and address issues of social well-being in the Kootenay-Boundary region. The 13 members are all communitybased social service organizations and operate in communities located throughout this region. For more information, visit www.thekoop.ca.

IT’S ELEMENTARY!

Carver demonstrates talent for CLES students BY RICHARD BLACKMORE, EMMA PENNER, MEREDITH COTE AND OLIVIA KETTLE Canyon-Lister Elementary School

At Canyon-Lister Elementary School we have an Aboriginal youth program for First Nation students. The students last year were taught by Janet Zarchukoff. This year our Aboriginal youth worker is Laurel Ewashen. Last year we had a lot of fun making our own regalia and Michael White came to visit our school. He danced some of his traditional dances. Afterwards he taught the boys the grass dance and the girls learned a fancy dance. Everyone joined in and we all danced some traditional dances together. It was a little hard but it was lots of fun. In the Aboriginal program we learn about Aboriginal cultures, dances, powwows, wood carving, stories and have cultural performances. On Sept. 22, Michael Price visited our school. He is an Aboriginal artist and wood sculptor. Michael was a great guest. He told us lots of stories about his masks and taught

Creston Valley

us how to braid cedar bark. We think he is very nice and awesome. He has sculptures you have to see! One of our favourites is the elk mask. It has six-point antlers on it. There is an elk face that opens up and you see the face of an elder. The elder's wisdom helps to make the elk wise. We are very happy and grateful for the mask of a wolf that Michael gave our school as a gift. Thank you, Michael.

How old are you? I am 36 years old. When did you start making masks? When I was 21 years old. Where were you born? Campbell River, B.C. When did you decide you wanted to make masks? One day I was fishing and I saw a piece of cedar floating by. I had an inspiration to carve the wood. I carved a letter opener with the shape of an animal on the top of it for my mother. When I went home my parents told me my uncle had died and we are thankful to my uncle’s spirit, which passed his talent on to me. What is the first mask you ever carved? The first mask I ever carved was a Dzunukwa — Wild Woman of the Woods.

What is your favourite kind of sculpture? The elk mask. What Aboriginal nation did your parents come from and where are they from? My father is from Cape Mudge,

Quadra Island, and his is a member of the Lekwiltok band. My mother is from Village Island and she is a member of the Mamalillikula. We are all members of the Kwakiultl Nation.

Saturday Registration started and cars were from all over, as far east as Regina SK to Salmon Arm BC and of course, our neighbours to the south were well represented with cars from many states. There were several activities at the park including an automobile balance beam, which some people said was impossible to do, yet we had to have a tie breaker round to declare a winner. The Poker run lead them around our beautiful valley to several different businesses from Canyon to Wynndel and back. Others, noticing the odour of fresh cooked burgers, sat back, visited and watched the goings on. Once again a warm evening greeted the campers at Lister Park, with the bonfire being the center of attention.

Canyon-Lister Elementary School is presently working toward becoming the first UNESCO-affiliated school in the province of British Columbia. Needless to say, this is quite an undertaking and at the helm of it all is Mr. Dan Hula, Grade 7 teacher and B.C.’s representative with the UNESCO school program. We interviewed him with the idea of providing the rest of the Creston Valley with a sense of what this program is all about. Mr. Hula, what is UNESCO? UNESCO is part of the United Nations. It stands for: United Nations Educational Science Cultural Organization.

Why do you think UNESCO is important? UNESCO is important because it has power by being part of the United Nations to contribute towards world peace. Are there other UNESCO schools in B.C? No, there are currently no schools that are part of UNESCO but there is one school in Kamloops that is trying to join. How did you get involved with UNESCO? I've been working on world peace issues for many years and I was involved in a group in Alberta called GEOEC (Global Education and Environmental and Outdoor Educational Council). How old is UNESCO? 50 years old. What will Canyon-Lister students learn from this? Canyon Lister students will gain a better sense of themselves, the world and their place in the world and sense of hope for their future.

Palestinian family finds new life in Canada BY ANNALEE GRANT Cranbrook Daily Townsman

Even through a translator, Tareq Abo-Nofal’s anger is evident — but his passion for his new country is even more obvious. The Palestinian father of three arrived in Canada on Sept. 20, after years of fighting through red tape to get his family to a safer place. He finally succeeded, but there are still loose ends to tie up, and years of broken promises by officials who were supposed to help the family out of a Syrian refugee camp. Tareq, along with wife Eman and children Dana, 16, Ziad, 14, and Bilal, 11, will be living in Creston for the next year, under the care of the Creston Refugee Committee. Tareq was born in Iraq after his father left Palestine in the 1940s. “The Palestinians, they are always living in a period of instability,” Tareq said through translator Adem Salimidris, a refugee from Sudan that was sponsored by Cranbrook/Kimberley Friends of Burma. The Abo-Nofal family lived in Iraq prior to the outbreak of war. There, Tareq said, the Sunni family lived peacefully; he supported them as a security guard at an oil company, until one day in 2005 when he was approached by Shi’a militants and told he would have to leave or be killed. Sunni and Shi’a people began fighting, and the Abo-Nofal family fled to Damascus, Syria, to a notorious refugee camp.

When asked about how people can tell a Sunni family from a Shi’a one, Tareq said the two grew up together, and everyone in the village knew each other before the war broke out and Sunni and Shi’a people began to discriminate against each other. Tareq said through Salimidris that his two brothers, Omar and Mohammed, were both murdered because they chose to stay in their homes. The first brother was killed in 2006, and the other a year later. Their murders were never solved. Luckily, their children were sent to the U.S. as

refugees and are safe. At the Syrian refugee camp, Tareq said they lived in fear, unsure of who would attack the family. The Canadian government promised to take 200 people in to start a new life in North America. Tareq said that promise was not kept — and only 26 people, including his family, were allowed to emigrate from the camp in Syria to greener pastures in Canada. That meant that Tareq’s original application for eight people, to include his ailing mother, elderly father and aunt, was denied.

RE-ELECT JOANNA WILSON

Tareq spoke of the unfairness in the camp, when UN officials would make decisions and rules that meant that some families could leave the country, and some couldn’t. The Creston committee was hoping to sponsor a different family, but because it will take at least a year for that application to go through, it decided to take in Tareq, Eman, Bilal, Dana and Ziad. The committee became a sponsorship agreement holder, which means it is responsible for the family’s care and financial needs for a year. See PALESTINIAN, page 17

Irish singer bringing music to Sasquatch SUBMITTED

Combine a wee Irish lass with a honeyed crystalline voice, a dynamic multi-instrumentalist and good cheer. What do you get? A whopping great time at the Snoring Sasquatch on Oct. 22! Come let Mary Murphy’s Irish isle transport you across the Atlantic to a home of traditional, original and contemporary Irish songs. Murphy not only sings lyrics, she transcends them. Her penned originals are steeped in tradition, and one would be hard pressed to decipher the originals from the traditional ones. The versatile and fiery singer-songwriter born in Dublin, Ireland, and residing in Canada, has built her own musical bridge on which she unequivocally invites all visitors to step across. It may be her gift of melody and lyric that is so attractive, or her rich and seemingly effortless vocal style, or perhaps her enticingly warm Irish nature — but

whatever combinations move this woman, they promote and sustain fans from every age group and from every walk of life. Murphy, the youngest of six children, has lived in Ireland, Canada and the U.S. Having lived in three countries makes for a woman of transcontinental life experiences. This attribute has served Murphy well and has shaped her as a woman that people naturally gravitate to on a personal level. These experiences have also shaped her writing, performing and interpreting style. She is especially adroit at unleashing spine tingling mid-tempo ballads. A typical performance includes traditional, contemporary and original Irish/Celtic/ folk songs as well as songs sung in the Irish language. Murphy’s Irish wit and storytelling also ring clear and proves to be yet another way in which her audiences find themselves feeling personally con-

nected and drawn into her world. Her producer-guitarist, Paul Keim, brings vibrant rhythmic guitar elements to Murphy’s overall sound both live and in the studio and is the owner/operator of Dove Creek Recording Studios in Courtenay.

Follow the Advance on Twitter at CrestonAdvance

Her seventh CD, A Painted Moon, is a bountiful work of art that continues to receive well deserved accolades and includes guest artist/ Juno winner David Francey. In 2007, Murphy performed at the Ottawa Folk Music Festival, as well as the Live from the Rock Music Festival in Ontario, where she and her mixed band won best band by audience consensus. Her newest release, Three Hand Reel, is an absolute showstopper. To quote one reviewer, “Three Hand Reel is infectious with the joy of making music. This release is a pure delight that, in the words of the title cut, ‘you’ll not want to let

the music end,’ and you’ll be pressing the repeat button to have it ‘go around again,’ ” She has written and performed music for film, including McGregor's Lament, which was recorded for a Charlie Sheen film with a 100-piece orchestra in Slovakia. Her CD Thirty Waves Out won album of the year in an independent music award category. She has been an encore guest of the Chieftains, and has her music aired regularly on stations around the world, including Sheryl MacKay’s North by Northwest on CBC, Fiona Ritchie’s Thistle and Shamrock on NPR, the well loved Adrian Flannelly Show on WKDM New York, Harold Moenkediek's Radio Bremen on NPR Germany and the John O’Regan show on RTE Ireland, just to name a few. Murphy can also add published novelist to her list of accomplishments with her acclaimed book, The Emerald Diaries — Secrets of an Irish Clan. As one review said, the book is “altogether engrossing. I was immediately transported to the crackling warmth of an Irish hearth fire and to the timeless stories one always finds there.” Tickets for Murphy’s Oct. 22 show at the Snoring Sasquatch are $12 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $15 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 8 p.m. The concert is a licensed event.

Obituaries Erich Sommerfeld

October 30, 1916 ~ October 6, 2011 Erich Sommerfeld was called to his eternal home on October 6, 2011 to be reunited with his loving wife Lucy. Erich was the eldest child born to Natalie and Johann Sommerfeld in Neitwalde, Germany on October 30, 1916. Erich immigrated to Canada with his family at the age of 12 and settled in Leask, Saskatchewan where his family cleared land and farmed. In 1946 Erich visited his uncles’ farms in Lister and his Uncle Herman convinced him to buy an orchard farm. On February 1, 1947 Erich was married to Lucy Ber on Lucy’s parents' farm in Percival, Saskatchewan. The newly married couple moved to the farm in Lister, BC in March. Erich farmed fruit, alfalfa and dairy/ beef cattle until he suffered a stroke on October 15, 2007, after which he was forced to move into town and resided at Hillcrest (Creston Valley Hospital) then Crest View Care Village. Erich was a hardworking man dedicated to his land and animals; farming until he was almost 90 years of age. He made annual trips to his son David’s farm in Saskatchewan to help with harvest until he was no longer able to make the long drive. Erich had a seasonal job working at Creston Packers, retiring from the packing shed at the age of 71. He also was the maintenance man for Lister Water Works, retiring at the age of 77 after 40 years of service. In 1949 Erich joined the Lutheran Church Volunteers to build Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Lister where his family attended services until the Lutheran churches amalgamated in Creston. Quite often after Sunday services Erich and Lucy would visit family and friends in Swan Valley Lodge and Pioneer Villa. Erich was also involved in the Lister picnics and supported the building of the Lister swimming pool. Erich is predeceased by his loving and devoted wife of 63 years, Lucy (passed away October 2, 2010), his parents, Natalie and Johann Sommerfeld, his brother Otto Sommerfeld, sister Erna Ber, sister-in-law Irma Sommerfeld, brothers-in-law George Ber and Clarence Zorn. Erich will be lovingly remembered by his children Martha (Brian) Endicott, David Sommerfeld, Ruth (Ron) Behnke, and Ervin (Kathy) Sommerfeld; grandchildren Christy (Brett), Joanne, Mark (Bev), Steven, Jonathan, Christina and John; great-grandsons Jacob and Erich; brother-in-law David Ber and sistersin-law Alma Zorn and Lydia Ber and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. A Funeral Service was held Saturday October 15, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Redeemer Lutheran Church, ofciated by Pastor Harry Haberstock. Erich was buried beside Lucy at the Lister Community Cemetery. Friends wishing to make a memorial contribution may do so to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC 4 – 1551 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9

Obituaries Margaret Angelynne Wall April 13, 1947 ~ October 14, 2011

It is with profound sadness that we announce Angelynne’s passing after a short battle with cancer on Friday, October 14, 2011. Angelynne was born in the Gretna, MB area and attended the Mennonite Collegiate in Gretna. She followed her calling to become a teacher, teaching in Gretna for 2 years and in Winnipeg (St. Boniface SD) for 32 years, as well as in CFB Baden, Germany for 3 years. She loved her work as well as the wonderful relationships with the Early Year Teams of the many schools in which she taught. She met the love of her life in January 1984, and they continued to travel, driving their vintage cars whenever they could and she became a mother to her new found family. Together they shared a life of adventures and laughter and were married on July 3, 2011. She retired from teaching in 2003 and moved with Terry to the Creston Valley (Wynndel) in the Kootenays in 2005. They spent winters at Sky Valley Resort in the Palms Springs area. Angelynne enjoyed her new community in Creston, singing in the Blossom Valley and Presbyterian choirs, playing Scrabble, attending concerts, swimming and meeting the wonderful people of the valley. Angelynne is predeceased by her parents David and Mary Wall of Gretna, MB, brother Armin Wall, and sister Ellie Cmela. She is lovingly missed by her life partner and husband Terry Kereluk of 27 years; her stepchildren Shawna Keehn (Rob), Daryl Kereluk (Amber); three grandchildren, Ashley and Hannah Keehn, and Sreanna Koche-Kereluk; brother George Wall (Frieda) Winnipeg; sister Marlene Plett (Altona) and sister-inlaw Iris Wall (BC). We would like to thank our Presbyterian and United Church families for their love, kindness and support for us. Thanks also to the doctors and nurses at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary and Creston Hospital for taking care of Angelynne. A special thanks to Angelynne's friends and family in MB, NS, and BC for holding her hand with their voices over the phone, and for the wonderful support we have received from our Creston Community. Funeral Services were held on October 19, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Stephens Presbyterian Church, 306 Northwest Blvd, Creston, BC. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to G.F. Oliver Funeral Chapel. In lieu of owers, donations may be made to Foothills Cancer Hostel – Calgary.
