Trail artist gives back - shows support for her church VALERIE ROSSI West Kootenay Advertiser

A Trail artist is donating her life’s work to raise money for a much-needed renovation at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Trail. Painter Catherine Wetmore has dug through her work that dates back to the 80s to pull together a collection of acrylic, watercolour and mixedmedium pieces to sell off for a good cause. “Having lived a great deal of my life near forests, tundra and water, I try to express in my paintings a connection with nature – one that is spiritual, magical and awesome,” she notes on her website (catherinewetmore. com). “I hope, within my images, to convey these expressions of the earth – a beauti-

ful world that needs cherishing.” The money made at the sale held April 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. will go toward the $120,000 needed to improve accessibility – which will include the installation of a wheelchair lift – to the common room in the basement of the Trail church. “It’s a wonderful statement of her faith,” said churchwarden Michael Hargreaves. “The building was built in 1955 and at that time we just didn’t think about handicap access or things of that nature. It’s more a need these days. In fact, the demographics of Trail is much older than it used to be.” Wetmore holds the church very near and dear to her heart, noting that the architect who built it

She hasn’t put down the paintbrush in about 60 years and still creates art, which is on display at Trail’s Artisan and the Rouge Gallery in Rossland. “I guess it’s in my blood,” she said. “I just like making images and there are things that move me, particularly in landscape.” About 30 larger framed pieces will be on display during a silent auction for the first three hours of the exhibit, with the remaining couple hundred pieces for sale at a reduced price up to 75 per cent off. “The prices are so silly that it enables people who love art and would love to have a piece of original art to go ahead and do it,” said Hargreaves.

News–Provincial/Regional

Cities protest RCMP pay hikes JEFF NAGEL

A group of meat producers from around the Boundary region met on March 31 to explore next steps now the Mobile Slaughter Unit (MSU) is moving forward. A down payment was made and the unit is expected to arrive in Grand Forks this Fall 2012. This news made operation of a MSU in the Boundary a reality. The entire cost of the MSU is paid for through grants received from Western Economic Diversification Canada,

B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond and federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews sign 20-year contract for RCMP in March. Black Press photo

But Bond is seeking more details. “I am deeply concerned about any potential impacts on our municipalities and that this information came as a surprise,” she said. Toews has said cities were advised months ago that raises on the order of 1.5 per cent were possible this year but neither the province nor cities were formally notified of the details of the compensation package. Fassbender said even if the pay hikes end up cost-neutral or better for cities, the lack of communication and consultation is deeply troubling, as

is the timing. “You just can’t plan this way,” he said. The province signed a new 20-year RCMP contract on March 21 – ending its threat to terminate the Mounties and form a new provincial police force – after securing extensive promises of more say for cities on spending decisions. Several cities have already ratified the new contract, including Surrey, Kelowna and the Township of Langley. Fassbender said cities that don’t sign by the deadline effectively give two years’ notice of withdrawal from the RCMP and

commit to forming their own police forces or partnering with existing municipal forces. “I’m still going to urge our council to sign the new contract,” Fassbender said. The new contract creates a UBCM-led committee with 10 civic reps who are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. Cities that sign the RCMP deal can still opt out at any time on two years notice, and a review of the contract is promised every five years.

B.C. cities say they’ve been blindsided by surprise RCMP pay raises that the federal government enabled just as it was signing a new policing contract that was supposed to usher in a new era of trust and cost control. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender has sent a letter on behalf of the Union of B.C. Municipalities to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews expressing “our complete shock and surprise” over the undisclosed pay lifts, which he warned will create “significant backlash” from councils and taxpayers. Fassbender, the UBCM rep in the recent contract talks, said cities don’t yet know how much more money – if any – they will have to carve out of their budgets to fund the higher RCMP payroll. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said she has been assured by Ottawa administrative savings totaling $195 million will partly flow to cities and could entirely offset the pay raises, and possibly even lower their costs.

Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust and provincial meat transition funds. Consequently, there is no debt attached to the MSU. The 30 farmers and interested folks who attended this meeting agreed on the necessity of infrastructure to be in place for farmers to be profitable. The infrastructure includes a cut and wrap facility, a marketing and sales outlet, the development of valueadded products like pet food and jerky, and a strong marketing plan. These proj-

ects need to be looked into so farmers get the most money from the animals they slaughter using the MSU. Some possible funding opportunities like grants and loans were presented to the group. There was a lot of discussion around docking stations and the workings of the MSU. Some concerns were raised about the ability of local farmers to provide a consistent year round supply of meat products. In order to develop a strong marketing plan and increase profits to

farmers the possibility of year round production of meat needs to be determined. Discussion ensued about forming a Boundary Meat Producers Society in order to move the operation of the MSU forward. Meat producers left this meeting optimistic about the future of meat production in the Boundary. The next meeting will be near the end of April and a great number of farmers stepped up to help.

and has now spread around the world. This is the first year the project has been organized in Trail, but both Castlegar & Nelson have participated in the past and Castlegar will host a display again this year on April 17. “The creativity of the women is incredible and they have really appreciated an opportunity to send a message to the community about the need to end the violence against women,� commented Gayle Ghosh, outreach worker at the Transition House who, along with Godderis, helps to facilitate the Tuesday afternoon Women’s Weekly Drop-In Group. “We’ve supplied paints, brushes and T-shirts and the women have taken it from there! Each T-shirt is unique and sends its own special message about the issue. � Other groups of women in the com-

munity are also creating T-shirts. As well, family, friend and workers who are exposed in some way to the impacts of violence against women are welcome to contribute their own ideas and images. Paints and T-shirts are available at the Trail FAIR Centre for anyone interested in creating a message on a T-shirt. Godderis adds “We’ll also have a table, paints & T-Shirts available on the 16th for people who want to add to the display.� In April each year, communities across British Columbia observe Prevention of Violence Against Women Week, a time to focus on a crime that, Statistics Canada reports, is experienced by one out of every four adult women in Canada at some time in their lives. According to Statistics Canada, in an average year, 20,000 women in B.C. will

experience violence. Almost half of these women have children who will be exposed to the violence as well. Peter Jaffe, a well-recognized researcher in Childhood Education at the University of Western Ontario, estimates that three to five children in every classroom have been exposed to violence against women. Women may experience extensive physical abuse, sexual assault, psychological trauma, financial hardship, and even death. In fact, a study by noted Sociologist Jillian Riddington, revealed that more women are injured or killed by physical abuse than by automobile accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Yet many people underestimate the seriousness and impact of the crime. Godderis is confident that “If more people can recognize and speak out

against violence against women, we have a better chance to increase women’s safety and hold offenders accountable. Knowledge can help communities support women, youth and children who experience violence and prevent tragedies. It is very encouraging that we now have a Men Speak Out Group in the area whose members are adding their voice to call for change.� To talk with someone about a situation you are concerned about, call the Interior Crisis Line Network, West Kootenay Boundary Region: 1-888-353-CARE (2273) (available 24/7).

New Democrat MLA Katrine Conroy is urging the Liberal government to take immediate action on the shortage of anesthesiologists at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. Conroy, the MLA for Kootenay West, has written a letter to de Health Minister Mike de Jong, expressing concern that one of the hospital’s anesthesiologists has resigned, which will leave just three when the full complement at



the hospital is five. “This shortage continues to take a toll on existing medical staff and will increase waitlists for care,� wrote Conroy, noting that the problem at KBRH is exacerbated by the Liberal government’s inability to agree with the provincial anesthesiologists’ society. “Your government has known for years that there is a very real challenge with recruitment of anesthesiologists to rural areas of the province,� wrote Conroy. “Also your gov-

ernment has known for more than three months that the anesthesiologists would withdraw services if their concerns were not addressed. Yet with less than a week to go before that deadline, people in my riding, and the rest of B.C., have no assurance from your government that health services won’t be further compromised.� De Jong told media that contingency plans include using nurses instead of anesthesiologists or flying patients to Alberta

News Runoff will test preparedness

Trail Briefs Lord willing and the creek don’t rise is the state of the union in the Beaver Valley. Even though the heart of spring runoff is still one month away, eyes are beginning to turn to one of the region’s trouble spots for flooding: the Beaver Creek. The recent rains have swelled the waters of the creek as it makes its way through the village down to the Columbia River, putting creekside folk into a wary state of existence. Historically the creek jumps its banks on properties that border it — including Creekside Community Park in Fruitvale — in mid May, but the current height of the creek isn’t a concern just yet, said Village of Fruitvale chief administrative officer, Lila Cresswell. “About this time of the year we get a bit of a rise due to rain and low level snow melt,” she said. The weekend rains likely brought some flash flood issues, said Dan Derby, deputy regional fire chief with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, but so far nothing has been reported. He said it was important for people to monitor their own drainage systems right now, as well as catch basins, to make sure they are clear. “We live in an area that is prone to some low level flooding in some parts of the region, but in saying that, it doesn’t happen every year,” he said. “That could change in the coming weeks depending on the weather. However, at this point we are not very concerned.” Airport data says Trail service more reliable than Castlegar

Improving air accessibility remains a top priority for the

region –whether it’s out of Trail or Castlegar, according to the chair of the East End Services Committee that governs the city’s airport. Kathy Wallace is reacting to reliability data collected at the Trail Airport recently presented to Trail council, which paints Pacific Coastal out of Trail far more reliable than Castlegar’s Air Canada service to Vancouver. In January this year, Trail sat at about 91 per cent reliable service while Castlegar slid to approximately 74 per cent; February found Trail reached 83 per cent reliability and Castlegar sank to 69 per cent. “I think that our Trail Regional Airport is providing a needed service in the area and you can see that by the passenger numbers,” said Wallace. “I also know that Castlegar is working on improving their reliability and we’ll probably see something happen there in the next year, I’d expect.” Castlegar councillor Russ Hearne questions the accuracy of the figures, as he said the airlines operate under completely different regulations when it comes to safely departing or landing. “Through their own policy, Air Canada ceiling heights add, I believe, a killometre of visibility as well as 100 feet of ceiling height on top of what the minimum standards are,” he explained. “We’re certainly not happy with the ceiling limits that they have to operate in and that’s why the city is working hard on improvements.”

largest graduating classes the school district will see for a few years as the number of school aged children continues to drop in the Kootenay Columbia region. According to figures released by SD20 administration, 346 students are set to graduate this year, compared to only 336 Grade 11s, and 323 Grade 10s.

He would never, ever, bring a small fish.” The final card, titled “Eventide, Procter, BC” dated from the same era and also showed a man on Kootenay Lake in a canoe. It fetched $82.

Despite the snow this past weekend, spring is drawing closer and local gardeners have been sharing tips during the Garden Club’s monthly meetings.

“I love raspberries and its a joy to go out in the morning and pick out some...” Cheryl Ahrens GF Garden Club Cheryl Ahrens, president of the Garden Club in Grand Forks. Cassandra Chin photo

Held every second Thursday of the month in the library at 7 p.m., there is usually a guest-speaker who provides advice on what the best methods of pruning or planting plants are. Last month there was a demonstration on how to prune fruit

trees. Cheryl Ahrens, president of the Garden Club, stated the club was founded in 1996. “Everyone who is interested in gardening is welcome,” she said. “We learn about gardening, and we have speakers on how

to fertilize as well as identify weeds. We’ve also had talks about new shrubs that are out and about.” During the summer, members of the garden club go on tours of gardens around the community.

“In two weeks, on April 12, we’ll be going to Mariposa Greenhouses, where there will be a demonstration on how to plant in hanging baskets,” Ahrens added. Ahrens loves to grow vegetables and fruits, though her fa-

vourite fruit are the raspberries. “I love raspberries and it’s a joy to go out in the morning to pick out some raspberries and eat them with my granola or yogurt,” she said. “That and fresh green peas.” For a beginner, Ahrens believes that lettuces are easy to grow. “(Lettuces) come in such an assortment of colours,” she stated. “You can have beautiful red foliages, ruffly green ones, or even arugula. They grow very fast and are very rewarding for a new gardener.” There is a variety of ages in the Garden Club, from men and women, experienced and inexperienced. The club currently has 63 members, though not everyone attends all the meetings. There is no membership required, only an interest in gardening.

Nelson’s Shambhala Hall makes a great debut NELSON STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

After many years of construction and renovations at Selkirk College, music program students were finally able to take the stage for the grand opening of the Shambhala Music and Performance Hall. “We’re happy to have a place for the students to perform. We’re really happy to be a part of it,” said Anna Bundschuh, one of the Shambhala

Music Festival’s producers. The hall held its official opening to donors on Wednesday night with a reception and performances from students and faculty. An event was also held on Thursday night which was open to the public. Bundschuh along with her siblings Jimmy Bundschuh and Corrine Zawaduk announced in October of last year that they would be contribut-

ing $75,000 to the project. The donation earned them a permanent place for the Shambhala name at the Selkirk Tenth Street Campus. “I’m just so touched and amazed,” said festival producer Zawaduk. “The sound quality is amazing. The lights are great. The quality of the performance was outstanding. I’m so pleased. It’s been a long time coming.”

With the Ministry of Education tying its funding formula to the number of students a district possesses, the situation is of concern if the number of students continues to dwindle. To make matters worse, school trustee Toni Driutti noted there were only 277 students enrolled in kindergarten this year. “It looks like we are going to enter into crisis here … that means those are the total graduates for the whole of the district,” she said. With the district losing 40 students from its graduating class within the next three years — and the number expected to rise to over 60 in the next decade — the enrolment situation

is not improving and could force the school

district to consider more cuts.

For many lifestyles this paddling pastime is tough to beat JIM SINCLAIR Advertiser Editor

Maximizing the West Kootenay lifestyle is an intention of the Columbia Canoe and Kayak Club. Combining a love of the outdoors with a desire for wholesome exercise and socializing opportunities, the membership in the recreational has climbed steadily of late. “It’s jumped up a lot in the last year or

so,” explained Dennis Holden, the club’s media coordinator on April 9. Holden was kind enough to provide a wealth of information on the group, even though the executive had barely had a chance to get into a new season, having only met on the previous Thursday night. Holden says once the season gets going there will likely be more specific stuff to let the public in on,

but for now it’s worth mentioning that the membership has ballooned to about 50.

The club members go more for the gentle thrills as opposed to extreme white water action. This is an activity with an appeal, pretty much as old as humanity and water, and the passage of time does nothing to reduce that appeal. The club was born over 30 years ago and was originally made up of canoeists. Kayakers are now welcome as well.

The club members go more for the gentle thrills as opposed to extreme white water action, and a number of events will be organized over the coming weeks and months. First up will be a Salmo River outing. This is set for April 28. “It’s a small river,” Holden related with a chuckle, “a half dozen or so canoes can fill it up.” The following month, on the 19th to be exact, the Columbia will be the thoroughfare – starting at the Robson boat ramp and going as far as First Street. Other functions including the Renata Regata in Lower Arrow Lake are upcoming as well. Dennis Holden plans to promote each of these dates as they draw near. He says the ideal way for a newcomer to get involved is to simply show up at the marshaling area, introduce themselves, sign a waiver and join in the fun. For now, in these early days, anyone with a hankering for this sort of enjoyment can give Dennis a call, at 250-365-2715.

Castlegar council accommodates hotel owners CRAIG LINDSAY West Kootenay Advertiser

At Castlegar City Council meeting on April 2, councillors approved the closing off and sale of a portion of Wood Street to the property owner of 330 Columbia Avenue. The new property owners of the Marlane Hotel have indicated that their ultimate goal (2-3 year plan) is to renovate the upper floor into 4-5 apartments, keep the remainder as ho-

tel units and turn the main floor into a restaurant and beermaking facility for consumption on site. “What they needed was three more parking stalls to meet the requirements,” said councillor Kevin Chernoff. “They had to amend their zoning. We had some land that was adjacent to it that we weren’t using that we can’t see any other use for it other than parking. This is the lots in the side alley not the main street.”

For Kendra Wayling, who graduated from Mount Sentinel in 2007, playing university volleyball is all about teamwork and sacrifice. Wayling was rewarded for her strong effort throughout the season by winning the University of British Columbia Okanagan’s (UBC-O) Female Student Athlete of the Year.

“I think it was because I had to be so versatile this year and help our team at many different positions,” she said. “The fact I was able to do that, a lot of people were impressed. My grades are pretty good too, so that’s part of it.” Wayling, who is 22-years-old, just finished her second year at UBC-O. She usually plays middle, but an injury to the Heat’s regular setter forced her into playing setter for much of the season. “It was our first year in CIS (Canadian Interuniversity

Sport), the university league,” she said. “It was a very big year for us. It was a lot of fun. We did a lot better than most people thought we would. We won six matches.” Wayling said the adjustment from the B.C. college league to the CIS was challenging but enjoyable. “It was a lot harder than it’s been in previous years but it was fun to play at that level,” she said. “The change in the level

of competition is huge. We were playing bigger teams that we’re a lot more experienced. We were playing teams at an elevated level of competition. So we lost a few matches we maybe should’ve won just because we weren’t experienced enough.” Wayling was born in Trail and grew up in the West Kootenay. She went to Stanley Humphries in Castlegar in grades 8 and 9 and then moved on to Mount Sentinel in South Slocan to play for the strong volleyball program.

Collectible Coinage Royal Canadian Mint introduces new one and two dollar coins

Multi-ply plated steel composition and visible security features are latest evolutions for Canada’s Loonie and Toonie

OTTAWA, April 10, 2012 /CNW/ The Royal Canadian Mint is pleased to announce that a new generation of onedollar and two-dollar circulation coins, which incorporate advanced security features and are manufactured with the Mint’s patented multi-ply plated steel technology begins circulating today. More cost-effective than their predecessors and unprecedented in their security, these new coins retain the “Common Loon” and “Polar Bear” designs and physical appearance familiar to millions of Canadian consumers and

businesses. Existing one-dollar and twodollar coins remain legal tender and will continue to circulate alongside this new generation of circulation coins. “As an industry leader and innovator focused on delivering the best quality and value to its customers, the Mint is pleased to have produced a new generation of one-dollar and two-dollar circulation coins which set new standards in cost-effectiveness, durability and security,” said Ian

E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “By combining the Mint’s patented multi-ply plated steel technology and sophisticated security features never before seen on Canadian coinage, our new high-denomination circulation coins reinforce the modern and innovative reputation of Canada’s currency system.” The new one-dollar and two-dollar coins are manufactured at the Mint’s facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba using the same pat-

ented multi-ply plated steel (MPPS) technology from which Canada’s lower denomination circulation coins have been made since 2001. This proven technology, by which a steel core is plated with alternating layers of different metals such as copper, nickel and brass, employs far less metals than alloy coins and produces highly cost-effective circulation coins. The Mint’s ability to control the plating thickness of each metal layer also provides greater flexibility in controlling electromagnetic signatures. This makes the security of MPPS coins superior to nonplated alloy coins of the same dimensions. Thanks to the superior advantages of its patented technology, the Mint’s Winni-

peg facility has been producing MPPS circulation coins for a growing list of international customers looking for the best combination of costeffectiveness, quality and security. The next generation of one-dollar and two-dollar circulation coins also incorporates new, visible security features which further enhance the security and integrity of Canada’s coinage system. The reverse (or tails side) of both coins features a laser mark micro-engrav-

ing, and the twodollar coin also contains a virtual image and edge-lettering.

Fitness 1 in 5 get exercise during work day SUBMITTED CNW

Sneak It In Week encourage Canadians to move more A recent survey commissioned by ParticipACTION found that 88 per cent of employed Canadians spend time at work on personal activities such as checking Facebook, making personal calls or chatting with colleagues, yet only 17 per cent make time for a physical activity break. To help encourage Canadians to move more at work and in general, ParticipACTION launches Sneak It In Week, which runs this year from April 9 to 13, to help Canadians sneak in short amounts of physical activity during the day. “If you can fit in a coffee break, you probably have time to sneak in physical activity too,” says Kelly Murumets, President and CEO of ParticipACTION, the national voice of physical activity and sport participation. “A short activity break can actually count towards the recommended level of physical activity per week adults require for health benefits.” According to the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, adults need 150 minutes of heart-pumping activity per week, but this does not have to be done all at once. Research shows that even tiny bouts of physical activity—as little as 10 minutes at

Adopt www.spca.bc.ca

A Best Friend Forever

a time—are associated with increased fitness. The survey also found that the main reason Canadian employees are not taking a physically active break during work hours is because they do not have the time; however, 34 per cent said they would like to do so. “We know only 15 per cent of Canadian adults are getting enough physical activity and that everyone is busy, but fitting physical activity into your work day can be easier than you think,” says Murumets. “If you cannot get to the gym, think of other simple ways to get active at work like starting a lunchtime walking group or booking a conference room to do a power yoga session.” ParticipACTION is encouraging Canadians to wear sneakers to work as much as possible during Sneak It In Week, so that getting physically active is easier to do. So, lose the loafers and give the heels a break this week. Some examples of easy ways to add 10 minutes of physical activity into the work day are:

• Get coffee or lunch a few extra blocks away • Have a walking meeting with colleagues • Park 10 minutes from the building entrance • Go “power shopping” to get active while running errands.

MPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Message TAX TIP: Tax savings for tradespersons worth checking out Did you know that being a tradesperson may make you eligible for certain deductions? Some of these are: Deduction for tools: You may be able to deduct the cost of eligible tools you bought in 2011 to earn employment income as a tradesperson (including apprentice mechanics). This cost includes any GST and provincial sales tax, or HST, you paid. An eligible tool is a tool (including associated equipment such as a toolbox) that: â&#x20AC;˘ you bought to use in your job as a trades-

person and was not used for any purpose before you bought it; â&#x20AC;˘ your employer certified as being necessary for you to provide as a condition of, and for use in, your job as a tradesperson; and â&#x20AC;˘ is not an electronic communication device (like a cell phone) or electronic data processing equipment (unless the device or equipment can be used only for the purpose of measuring, locating, or calculating). GST/HST rebate: As an employee, you may have incurred expenses in the course of

Alex Atamanenko, MP BC Southern Interior File photo

your employment duties. Some of these expenses you paid may have included GST or HST. If you deducted these expenses from your employment income, you may be able to get a rebate of the GST or HST you paid

on these expenses. As an employee, you may qualify for a GST/HST rebate if: â&#x20AC;˘ you paid GST or HST on certain employment-related expenses and deducted those expenses on your income tax and benefit return; and â&#x20AC;˘ your employer is a GST/HST registrant. You do not qualify for a GST/HST rebate if your employer: â&#x20AC;˘ is not a GST/HST registrant; or â&#x20AC;˘ is a listed financial institution as defined in the Excise Tax Act (for example, an entity that was at any time during the year a bank, an investment

dealer, a trust company, an insurance company, a credit union, or a corporation whose principal business was lending money). Employment expenses: You can claim certain expenses you paid to earn employment income as a deduction, but only if your employment contract required you to pay the expenses, and either you did not receive an allowance for them, or the allowance you received is included in your income. Keep all receipts and documentation to support the claims

Benevolent effort underway for Burmese family Regional Briefs A group of volunteers in Rossland is working to bring two Burmese families to the town. West Kootenay Friends of Refugees met last week to discuss ideas about fundraising to meet the goal of sponsoring the families. The group hopes to cover the costs of bringing the two families over, as well as cover their cost of living for the first year, which they estimate $20,000 should cover. Sub-19 film-fest

Roller Derby rampage is ready to romp into Rossland ARNE PETRYSHEN West Kooteany Advertiser

The West Kootenay Roller Derby League

starts off its season Friday with a double header in Rossland. The night begins at 5 on Friday the 13th,

with Salmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Babes of Brutality taking on Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lumber Jackies in the first match, then continues with

Keep Fri. the 13 open Arne Petryshen photo

Castlegarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dam City Rollers taking on last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champions, Rosslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gnarlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels. The Angels finished last season as league champions as they took back the lead in

overtime laps, in what was a stunning finale. The team will be playing to keep up the unbeaten streak that they managed all of last season. League president Michelle Sylvest said there are a number of changes for this year. For one, the league has expanded the number of games to 26 this year. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also added two new teams: Trail Bad News Betties and the Slocan Valley Vendettas will officially join the fray this year. Last year they played, but the games were only exhibitions. Sylvest, who plays

for the Betties, suspects there will be some interesting rivalries this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have some competition from the teams that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up playing all season,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring the level up for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Nelson will be hosting the Western Regional Championships this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty big season,â&#x20AC;? she said. The teams began training in January, but Sylvest said a lot of the teams keep up practice over the course of the off-season, from September

to January. The doors open at the Rossland arena at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 13, with first whistle at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance ($15 at the door, $2 for kids) from Phat Angel in Nelson, Mountain High Lighting in Castlegar, West Kootenay Scuba in Salmo, RossVegas in Rossland and Gerick Cycle & Sport in Trail. On-line tickets sales at www.kootenayrollerderby.com where you can check-out the 2012 Bout Schedule and contemplate the bounty of a seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass before theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gone on April 21.

Horoscope

Week

ffor th the

April A p i 13, 2012

Tip of the Week: As the planet turnsâ&#x20AC;Ś.sounds like a soap opera! Implied is the usual host of dramas where people interact according to circumstance, need, desire, opportunity and ambition and where vice and guile, innocence and naivety and all the good in between weave the daily rhythms and intrigues we call life. This brieďŹ&#x201A;y characterizes the perennial story everywhere despite language, culture, race, religion, creed or technological prowess. Yet the planet does not just turn it actually spins on its axis and orbits around the Sun. Further, this axial rotation has a slight wobble in its spin which produces a phenomenon called Precession of the Equinoxes. In turn, this causes the Zodiac to appear to retrograde at a rate of about 1 degree every 72 years completing a 360 degree cycle in almost 26, 000 years. From Precession we get the Age of Pisces and Aquariusâ&#x20AC;Ś. So, only once in about 26, 000 years does the Sun, from the perspective of Earth conjunct the Galactic Center and it is happening right now! Actually the process requires about 36 years to complete and we have been in it since about 1980, meaning there are a few years yet to go. Enter Mayan Cosmology which asserts that this event coincides with a great evolutionary juncture and potentially great cataclysms. The year cycle from spring 2012 through to that of 2013 is said to be when this will occur - stay tuned!

ARIES (MAR 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; APR 20)

LIBRA (SEP 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; OCT 22)

You may be just a little slower off the mark so far this month, but the pace will accelerate this week. Your focus will sharpen noticeably and by next week you will be on a real roll. With growing responsibilities to consider you may feel the urge to break loose! Fortunately, opportunities to do so are here now and will continue.

Changes on relationship fronts have been sparked and these are evident. They may also be pushing you within, to do inner work and confront the doubt demons. Yet, there is at least a silver lining in these events and possibly even a vein of gold. Make efforts to trust what is happening. Cooperate and capitalize!

TAURUS (APR 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAY 21)

SCORPIO (OCT 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; NOV 21)

Gestating dreams will begin to show their ďŹ rst real shoots this week. Already a variety of ideas are crowding your plans. Your mind is open and your imagination is soaring. You are ready to dive into the game again and you likely have support from others. Proceed with a beginners mind for best results.

Creating a healthier rhythm and ďŹ&#x201A;ow continues. It may feel quite challenging to feel solid and secure with how things are, however. This may take another six months to settle. Yet, there is also expansion and opportunity is knocking. Take full advantage of what is available and be patient with and trusting of the shifting ground.

GEMINI (MAY 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JUN 21)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DEC 21)

Some unexpected new beginnings are having an accelerating effect. Yet, to move forward as freely as you would like, you may have to do some clearing close to home. The time is right to clear the clutter, in your thoughts, focus and/or living space. Feeling conďŹ dent has probably been more challenging than usual but that will change soon so be ready.

The waves of change are being felt by everyone and not least of all you. Feeling conďŹ dent about it all may not be so easy. Reaching out to others for support, exchange and new alliances is ideal. Be willing to be still and quiet, to receive guidance from within. Opportunity accompanies change; summon the pioneering spirit!

CANCER (JUN 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JUL 22)

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JAN 19)

Something powerful and perhaps unexpected has sparked in your world. Whether this is the kind of change you want is another story. Yet, what can you do but to cooperate with the current? You can list your options, and your blessings for added good measure. Be willing to see the bigger picture to provide context for what is happening.

Something deep within the core of your being has been sparked. Perhaps you need space to integrate what is happening and/or it is activating you to be freer. Your imagination is likely reeling from it all. Connecting within to consult your inner authority for what to do is a good idea. Others may offer useful guidance or insights as well.

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; FEB 19) LEO (JUL 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; AUG 23) The time is right to be taking the initiative. This will require a creative approach and perhaps some courage. Do outline your ambitions to fuel your determination. It remains a good idea to do your homework which includes research and requires imaginative thinking. Be open to inspiration, support and nurturing from others. Network!

Many new perceptions have taken root in your mind. Your sights are set on the future and you may increasingly know what you do not want. What you do want may require some additional time to clarify. Yet your ambitions for something new are growing and this will continue. All you have to do now is be open and willing.

PISCES (FEB 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAR 20) VIRGO (AUG 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; SEP 22) A rather deep and complex time continues. Yet, it will shift later this week to produce more conďŹ dence and enthusiasm. Acquiring new tools, techniques and strategies remains important. Both learning and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;getting the word out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are implied. Your ability to concentrate on these will increase steadily as well.
