REVED! Revelstoke’s Quarterly Arts Season’s Greetings! Change is fun, not to mention inevitable, which is why you will come to find REVED sporting a whole new look!. The reason for newsprint is simple: I realized the hypocrisy when I started an environmental section (What Matters) and implored people to recycle - yet I printed on bleached white paper. Ooops. There are also more ways to use REVED in its newspaper form. When encountering your Ex, a 22x17 sheet of paper is easier to hide behind than 8.5x11. You can also use it as window-coverings, wallpaper and tablecloths...think about it. Another change you’ll notice inside, among new writers and new columns, is the absence of the Entertainment Calendar. Upon returning from holidays, I noticed that the Revelstoke Times Review now has an events calendar. REVED, while it could, helped in providing information for events and happenings around town as there was no one source making this available at the time. But being a quarterly publication, it is futile to contend with a source that can supply weekly event listings and so I have pulled the Calendar. I, for one, am happy the Times is doing this community service. Also, I’ve recently been

What Matters... Welcome to the first issue of R e v ed! , a locally created publication designed to promote Arts and Culture in Revelstoke. My name is Heather Lea and it is with much pleasure that I present to you what I hope will be a source for good entertainment! When I came to Revelstoke five years ago, it was with an admittedly ignorant

sense of what the town was all about. I worked for Canadian Mountain Holidays at Galena Lodge, so most of my time was spent up there in the woods. During my weeks off I would drive to Calgary to mooch off my parents, but that felt wrong. Not the mooching part, but the part where I left the mountains to drive to a city. Most people do that the other way around. It wasn’t long, though, before I traded in the folks for some unsuspecting friends who had couches and a like-minded obsession to ski. I soon fell in love with Revelstoke. Sure it may lack a few things, but what could go wrong in a place with four liquor stores, three Chineses restaurants and one tasteful

district; emphasis on the term logging. There was no re-planting, cut block management, riparian (river bank) concerns, wildlife stewardship, erosion prevention, fire suppression, etc. Forestry came much later. The way we sheared the forest like a bad haircut, it’s somewhat amazing how the trees lasted long enough for us to make the transition from logging to forestry. Many of the pioneer loggers hiked north from central U.S. states like Michigan and Wisconsin, which had about a 75-year start on the Western Canadian industry, using fallers, buckers and sawyers from Norway and Sweden. Logging families with Scandinavian names can still be seen in the Revelstoke phone book. Make it to Forestry, we did. We now have more merchantable timber in this area than 75 years ago,

partially because B.C. has one of the most advanced Forest Practices Codes on the planet. We use species like Hemlock for lumber that were considered weeds 30 years ago. Being located in the only inland, moderate rainforest in North America brings this district plenty of precipitation so coveted species like Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir can flourish and regrow rapidly. Almost 140 years after the start of logging, one of Revelstoke’s three main economic generators is still listed as Forestry, initiated by the onslaught of get-rich-quick fortune hunters. Gordon Gekko would have been proud.

by Heather Lea

Suzanne grew up in Chatham, ON. In high school and college she received awards for her creative skills thus giving a sense of what she could do in life as an artist. During a trip in 2008 to her father’s hometown in Italy, she was inspired by the fact that designing jewellery was something people have been doing for centuries.

She also intends to stick to fair trade jewellery practices, offering conflict-free diamonds and fair trade gem stones along with recycled metal.

“It’s something that has always been there. It’s a timeless craft, which can be made to look old or new. Jewellery is an easily recognizable medium and I’m fortunate that way; it doesn’t always need to be re-invented.” Suzanne keeps her skills fresh attending seminars and workshops so she can keep up-to-date with the industry. Although she markets herself for custom design and repairs throughout town, she finds it a necessity to promote herself outside of Revelstoke, as well.

"The old image of the goldsmith sitting at the bench with a magnifying glass? That’s me."

With a portfolio of bracelets, broaches, money clips and even silverware, Suzanne shows her skills in branching out from the average jeweller. She does, however, have a very impressive line of the common products like wedding and engagement rings, earrings and necklaces – all uniquely defined by Suzanne’s signature theme: nature. “A lot of [the texture] in my work comes from nature when something is duplicated: waves on a river, sand patterns on a beach, the veins of a leaf – patterns of nature. I make my own tools to re-create this texture that I see.” To describe it best, working with metal is like working with clay, Suzanne explains. While enrolled in a full-time pottery course in college Suzanne took an elective in jewellery making. It was then she had an Aha! moment and decided jewellery was more her thing. “[Metal] has abilities and properties to do what clay does. I can manipulate it with tools to create the desired effect,” she says while heating a piece of metal about two inches square with the torch. When the metal is annealed or heated this way, it is made softer and more workable. She uses tongs to drop it quickly into a natural acid bath, which quenches the metal enough to be touched. With her fingers, she works the piece until she needs to use the hammer for more precise bending and folds. On her work bench sit a few different kinds of leaf molds, which are rolled through a pressing machine while the metal is still malleable. This gives the fine imprinted leaf pattern common in many of Suzanne’s pieces. “People think I have to heat [the metal] up but I actually work with it cold. I only heat it up to get it to anneal. I’d love to have a studio where people can watch the process so they can see it, too.”

“For me it’s passion and dedication that’s the key. If you wake up every morning and go to work and do what you love to do, that’s good ground to start on.” For an example of one of her biggest challenges to date, we come back to the lone engagement ring on her finger - a family heirloom, which for now, is playing an active role until she can design her own ring. “…[that] has been the biggest challenge yet!” she laughs, stating that even though she wears a modest amount of jewellery, she wants what she is wearing to be a reflection of herself as a designer.

“I’m really involved in the metal arts community in larger centres. I try to keep sales accounts outside of B.C. and even do shows and sell in other places across Canada. I really strive to be part of the greater pulse of the industry.” When it comes to the future, Suzanne feels her dream job is anything but dreamy. “It’s quite realistic, actually. I want to be available to the public on a regular basis for repairs and for retail. If that means exposure

“Right now, I’m making several different rings to interchange [the engagement ring] with, so every day I’m wearing a different ring.” Ah, the perks of being able to design your own bling! Suzanne keeps an entertaining blog at http://suzannespisani.blogspot.com which will also connect you to her web site and contact information. Mr. and Mrs. Begbie Rings: sterling silver.

“It is like blacksmithing but on a smaller scale. My tools are based on millimeters versus inches. I use a ruler that’s no longer than six inches and I’m down to a 16th of a millimeter when I set stones. The old image of the goldsmith sitting at the bench with a magnifying glass? That’s me.”

“I enjoy having emotional connections with people. My ‘dream’ job would be what I’m working towards now, which is custom oneof-a-kind work for people with a person, emotion or idea in mind. Engagement, wedding and commitment rings are a big part of that. I love doing any work that offers a connection for people.”

Here in her studio Suzanne needs patience and dexterity.

“From the get-go my family always recognized I had a talent. My mom used to bring me to galleries and places like the One-of-aKind Show.”

Which she hopes eventually is a studio downtown.

Artist in Profile

Suzanne Spisani

With the exception of her engagement ring Suzanne’s hands are mostly decorated in blood blisters – a true sign of a hands-on artist. Her studio at the Visual Arts Centre more resembles a blacksmith’s workshop where clusters of dangerous looking power tools fill the small 10x10 space. A small torch and a variety of hand tools that look sharp and precise are scattered about precious metals and gem stones. It seems an unrelated foreshadowing to the finished product that will emerge from this room - sleek, cleanly polished gems and metals that will shine behind the glass of an exhibit case.

through galleries and stores that’s great, but for long-term, I’d like to be somewhere where people can access me on a regular basis.”

When you first meet jewellery designer Suzanne Spisani you might notice she wears hardly any jewellery. Yet despite this, she is unmistakably one of Revelstoke’s up and coming stars in the jewellery scene.

Suzanne recently completed her last year of jewellery and small object design at the Kootenay School of the Arts - Selkirk College in Nelson, B.C. She describes the program as confidence-building and full of great networking avenues, including a class visit to the One-of-a-Kind Show in Toronto. The show features some of Canada’s finest artists in all mediums.

new people and learning new skills, consider applying to volunteer with Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services where fire chief, Rob Girard, proudly proclaims, “When you join the fire department you find 41 friends; it’s a family.” Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services (RFRS) is made up of eight paid staff and approximately 33 volunteers. According to Girard they are about to do another volunteer hire. Do you have what it takes to be a volunteer with RFRS?

While the RFRS team works hard, Girard explains they are also a “very social group.” Revelstoke Fire Rescue staff and volunteers are more than just firefighters. One of their many hats includes acting as crowd control at events like Rail Jam and the Olympic torch relay. Girard says,“flipping hot dogs and selling 50/50 tickets,” are also part of the job description of RFRS staff and volunteers. Money collected goes towards the Burn Fund and muscular dystrophy. In addition to dealing with chimney and house fire alarms, other typical work includes carrying out fire suppression and using the Jaw of Life for highway rescues. Volunteers also have the option to train as

You don’t have to be an aspiring career firefighter to join this group; you just need to be positive and committed. And don’t worry - Girard promises you won’t have to rescue any cats from trees.

How might we expect to see RFRS change in the next five years?

RFRS is only going to get busier over the coming years. “Stats have more than [tripled] from 2008 to 2009,” says Girard, explaining that RFRS has gone from receiving 19 full page calls a year to over 70. He estimates this is “the result of more visitors, skiers, sledders and highways getting busier.” Thank you RFRS staff and volunteers for all your hard work!

What Matters....

other than their original intent. Lisa, a homeless woman, told me, “[…] that’s the night I had to spend down at the ball park because I was locked out. And I was refused service the next day because my clothes was [sic] dirty.”

In speaking with participants I discovered that not only was there a desire to not be homeless but that there was also a certain amount of shame involved. Alex, a homeless man, says, “I know of a couple other individuals in town here who are homeless. I’ve heard them say ‘It’s my personal choice' but […] I don’t want to be homeless here.”

Sarah and Gerry, a homeless couple, explain, “Just the looks you got from [people], you knew. People [would] say, ‘Oh, you still haven’t found a place?' kind of sarcastic.”

Exploring Homelessness in Revelstoke by Melissa Jameson

For the past two years I have been working towards my Masters of Arts in professional communication, with a specialization in intercultural and international communication through Royal Roads University. My thesis is exploring the issue of small town homelessness using Revelstoke as a case study. *All names in the article have been changed. Pop culture has given us a neatly packaged view of what it is to be homeless. Movies and songs paint a picture of the mentally ill addict, living in concrete jungles, finding refuge on street corners and back alley doorways. Yet this “absolute” definition of homelessness doesn’t fit when you begin to think of small town or rural homelessness. That’s because the absolute homeless (defined by the United Nations as being “where an individual or family has no housing at all or is staying in a temporary shelter”) often doesn’t exist in smaller centres. Often the homeless in smaller centres are hidden. They live in campers, find temporary abode on the couch of a friend or family member, or sleep in their cars. In a nutshell, they don’t exist how we believe the homeless should exist. They may be mentally ill, or addicts, but just as often they are not. If you happened to frequent Castle Joe Books sometime between April 15 and May 30 you may have seen a series of images taken by homeless residents in Revelstoke. A darkened stairwell, a friendly face, a snowy bicycle track…These images each represent some of the spaces occupied by the homeless individual behind the camera.

I was also curious to see how homelessness in Revelstoke was viewed by “housed” community members and also conducted a series of interviews with residents who represent a multitude of social sectors in the community. What was most interesting about the inclusion of these participants was the wide spectrum of opinions on homelessness and the admission that the lack of visibility was often the barrier to seeking solutions.

Rick, another homeless man, told me,“It’s hard to make a big investment [on homelessness] because there’s two people sleeping under a tree; maybe there’s another 30 or 40 people that you never see, but because you don’t see them then people don’t think the problem is that large.” The invisibility factor has also made it difficult for those in the social services sector to create discourse on the issue of homelessness with other community members. Yet many, including myself, know there is a homeless population in Revelstoke – and not a transient one. All of the homeless participants had been living in Revelstoke for a period of time no shorter than one year and in most cases greater than four years. In the case of my research the intent was not to “prove” the homeless exist in Revelstoke but rather to explore how homelessness is experienced in smaller centres; how we are conditioned to compare the spaces occupied by rural homelessness with homelessness in larger urban centres, such as Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. Editor's Note: Melissa continues to work hard on her thesis, which she expects to have finished by mid-June.

With a research method known as ‘photovoice’ I gave each willing participant a disposable camera in order to allow them to have a more direct involvement in the creation of my thesis. French philosopher and sociologist Henri Lefebvre speaks of the direct relationship between social action and social space. In other words, the manner in which a person behaves is directly related to a specific space. Yet in the case of the homeless, often these spaces are re-created and used for something

From Our Readers Revelstoke's First MidwifeAttended Homebirth by Birte Paschen, Midwife

"We're having a baby today!" Cynthia and Phil Gallant call me at 3 a.m. to report regular contractions. After a healthy and uncomplicated pregnancy the couple decided to have a planned homebirth with a registered midwife, a service that became available in Revelstoke last September. After making sure that both mom and unborn baby are well, I set up my equipment in the Gallant's master bedroom. Homebirths attended by midwives have been an option to expectant women in B.C. since 1998. Studies show homebirths to be a safe alternative to hospital birth, with fewer interventions when compared to women giving birth in hospitals. Mountain Midwifery is Revelstoke's first midwifery clinic. The Midwifery Model of Practice in B.C. incorporates the principles of continuity of care, informed choice, choice of birth setting and evidence-based practice. Midwives respect the right of women to make informed choices and facilitate this process by providing complete, relevant and objective information. With Cynthia wanting her birth to be as positive as possible, she labours in the familiar setting of her home. She is happy to be able to see her excited two-year old son, Luca, off to pre-school. When the contractions get really strong, I call Jennifer Schött, a registered nurse, who is the second birth attendant. This is also a requirement of the College of Midwives of B.C., in case of an emergency to mom or baby. All birth attendants have to be current in neonatal resuscitation and CPR. Midwives carry all the emergency supplies necessary (oxygen, IV and resuscitation equipment) to manage any situation that arises until the mother and baby can be safely moved to hospital. However if something about the labour process indicates it might be safer for the mother to be in hospital, we will transfer them. The majority of transfers to hospital are done preventively - not to deal with a crisis but to avoid one. After checking the emergency equipment is together, I wait by Cynthia's side for the arrival of her newborn. Hours later, Cynthia and Phil are holding their second son, Henri, in their arms, waiting for big brother Luca to come home and finally meet his baby brother. I have delivered over 400 babies and continue to care for healthy newborns and their mothers for six weeks post partum, after which time their general practioner resumes care. "There is so much to know about birth, pregnancy and post partum", Cynthia says, "and there was not a single question that went unanswered. Birte usually presented multiple perspectives. It saved me hours of worry to have a simple question answered on a 24 hour on-call basis." Although the majority of midwifery clients plan hospital births, both home and hospital births (and all other midwifery services) are covered by the Medical Services Plan.

THE

Honing the Skills of Revelstoke's Youth by Otti Brown

SCENE by Travis Hunt

There is an exciting movement shaking feathers in Revelstoke and it involves backyard chickens. You may have heard the happy clucks while walking down a back alley or been given eggs by your neighbour. While not historically new to Revelstoke or other towns in B.C., the urban, or backyard chicken coop, is making a resurgence. There are several homes in the community hosting two or three chickens and some backyards have many more. Responsible chicken owners give many beneficial reasons for raising chickens, including fresh daily eggs, manure that helps enrich compost for gardening and reconnecting families with where their food actually comes from while decreasing the carbon footprint from food transport. Chickens are also very enjoyable pets according to some owners. But there are many legitimate concerns with raising chickens within the city of Revelstoke. Issues such as responsible and humane ownership, predator attraction, noise and smell and potential health concerns have all come up. Currently, there is not a bylaw regarding backyard chickens. Legitimate owners have the necessary space in their yards, have very good relationships with their neighbours and keep the peace by not having roosters, which can be noisy. Many larger urban cities such as Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and even New York City have bylaws allowing chickens. The debate continues, however, in smaller communities such as Kamloops, Kelowna, Nelson and Vernon. The city of Revelstoke’s current stance according to bylaw enforcement officer Tim Luini is that having chickens “is not permitted except those in rural residential areas that meet certain size requirements for horticulture or those that have been grandfathered in.” He does state there is ongoing discussion regarding looking at the bylaw in light of renewed interest and encourages open dialogue. You may wonder what is actually involved in raising chickens and how much space is needed. Chicks are easily obtained through mail order and even pullets (young hens about six months old and egg-laying ready) may be purchased as close as Salmon Arm. The standard space needed for chickens is about 10 square

If you’re looking for individual career and job support, RESC has an employment facilitator dedicated to youth. When would you want individual support? Here’s a scenario:

Cluck, cluck! Looking at the issue of raising chickens in the backyards of Revelstoke.

feet of run space and four square feet of coop space per hen, which most backyards can accommodate. Safe and secure run and coop designs can be found online but may need to be modified due to Revelstoke weather. Most owners will use layer pellets and scratch, along with plenty of leftover garden greens and table scraps (except meat) for feed. Chickens also love worms, bugs and grass. Water can be easily supplied. Once the coop and run are operational it seems that the hens just do what comes naturally-lay eggs. They will typically lay one egg each daily. It only takes a few minutes of online searching to find more information but talking with locals that have chickens may be very rewarding information for future chicken farmers. The backyard chicken debate in Revelstoke continues and open discussion with input from the community is vital. The most important issue may be predator attraction and how to deal with it in a responsible manner. It may be worthwhile to have a community forum to discuss issues with city council, Bear Aware and citizens to foster communication and solutions. Using the example of other cities that have adapted bylaws may also be of benefit. The spirit of Revelstoke is alive and well with new ideas such as the community garden taking root. Backyard chickens, although not new, may also benefit the community and give Revelstokian’s an opportunity to reconnect with the farming heritage of this area in a personal and fun way. The next time you buy eggs just think that you may have been able to go into your backyard coop for fresh eggs that morning and have said hello to the hens that laid them. For more information check out backyardchickens.com and please give your input at the upcoming Unified Development Bylaw Charrette starting on Tuesday, June 8. There is also information at RevelstokeUDB.com

“Petunia has been unemployed since she left high school a year ago and has only been able to find part-time work at the local grocery store. She wants more work because she really wants to move out on her own. Petunia has applied for 15 jobs with no results. She has accessed the self-assisted services at RESC, which includes use of computers for employment related work, photocopying and faxing access, the job board and the resource materials available. Now she wants to get serious – either find a full-time job or explore post secondary and training options that will get her full-time employment. Petunia is at a career crossroads. Her next step is to make an appointment with the employment facilitator. Through a service needs determination, which takes about an hour, the employment facilitator and Petunia talk about her options and where to start. Since she is able to live at home while she explores possibilities and has the time, the employment facilitator suggests she engage in some formalized career decisionmaking processes. The Implicit Career Search (ICS) is a two-week workshop well-worth the time. The cool thing about this group activity is that once you decide on what your work purpose is (week 1), you get to develop a solid plan of attack to achieve your goal (week 2). It’s important to do this selfexploration that assists you in deciding on your career path. Petunia spent two weeks in the Implicit Career Search and decided that she wanted to become an early childhood educator. She then researched schools using some of the tools the employment facilitator gave her access to. She was really excited about using Career Cruising as an online door to the different schools that offered ECE programs. Petunia was able to make an informed decision about where she wanted to go to school, looking at program content, cost, location and duration – ensuring the best choice for her situation and needs. Once that decision was made Petunia was worried about where she would get funding. Again, by working with her employment facilitator, Petunia was able to get a combination of student loans, grants and scholarships for her post secondary education. She has now completed her program and scored her first job with a child care provider right here in Revelstoke! If you have similar questions to Petunia’s or for anything else related to employment and career development, the Revelstoke Employment Services Centre has a friendly and helpful environment where you can start to make informed decisions and choices. Otti Brown is a youth facilitator at the Revelstoke Employment Services Centre.

Modern Food Science Gone Mad by Alison Lapshinoff

Modern food scientists are hard at work keeping down the cost of producing today’s packaged food. By replacing familiar old favourites like butter and sugar with new and improved creations like partially hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup, things like yoghurt and cereal, soda pop and baked goods are cheaper to produce. And if you don’t feel these savings are being passed on to you, the consumer, you can rest assured the companies producing these foods are reaping the benefits in the form of higher profit margins. Today's western diet could be considered a large scale experiment with our health in which we are participating unawares. Never before in human history has a population consumed such a quantity of refined grains and modified fats and sweeteners created by science instead of nature. High fructose corn syrup is a fairly recent innovation of food science. A compulsive food label reader, I noticed, on a recent trip to the U.S., this ill-reputed human produced sweetener seemed to lurk in almost everything from yogurt and bread to sports drinks. Products in Canadian grocery stores fail to list high fructose corn syrup in their ingredients. Feeling rather curious, I settled down to do some research on the product.

on imported sugar, glucosefructose is a very cheap way to sweeten food. At the same time, its shelf life is increased. Corn farmers will vehemently claim it is no less healthy than a diet high in plain, old fashioned sugar. A study at Princeton University shows otherwise. A group of rats fed glucose-fructose along with their regular diet showed increased weight gain and more circulating triglycerides, or fats, in their bloodstream than those fed plain white sugar. At the very least, it is something to consider, when selecting your yogurt, a product marketed as healthy. Hydrogenated oils are another ill-reputed innovation of today's times. Decades ago, the oils seemed a great idea. Margarine, high in polyunsaturated fats, was cheap to produce, lasted for ages and was thought to be a healthy alternative to butter. Modern science has told us otherwise. The creation of margarine can be traced back to nineteenth century France when a shortage of animal fat prompted the government to offer a prize for the best cheap butter substitute. Oleo-margarine, a combination of liquid beef tallow, milk, water and chopped cow udder churned into a solid form was patented by a French chemist in 1869. The word ‘margarine’ itself derives from the Greek word ‘margarites’, meaning pearl, in reference to its then pearly white colour. By the 1930s, vegetable oils, being cheaper, had replaced animal fats in margarine and by the 1960s new research was showing the polyunsaturated fats used in margarine made it healthier than butter, a saturated fat. Today, science is calling hydrogenated oil a ‘silent killer’. That’s one mighty big “OOPS!”

Hydrogenation is the process of heating oil and passing hydrogen bubbles through it resulting in a denser product. Using hydrogenated oils in packaged food increases shelf life and can decrease the cost of production. Unfortunately it has also been shown to raise levels of low density lipoproteins, or ‘bad cholesterol’, while depleting the good. Turns out high fructose corn syrup hides under the guise of glucose-fructose in Canada and has indeed And since our bodies have trouble breaking down trans fatty acids caused by hydrogenation, they tend to build up quietly infiltrated our food supply, taking over the and hang out in our arteries, clogging them. Butter, once job that once belonged solely to sugar, or sucrose. a villain in terms of our health, is now a good guy again.

Our bodies can probably deal with a little hydrogenated oil or a drop of high fructose corn syrup “Too much simple sugar is like industrial fertilizer,” every now and then in just the same way it must deal with explains Melissa Hemphill, a registered holistic pollutants in our environment.

Heritage Moments Revelstoke Does Rock by Karen McColl

“All the trails at Begbie [bluffs] he built,” says Beglinger of Allen. “You have to give him a lot of credit.”

It’s no secret many local enthusiasts turn to rock at the end of a powder-filled winter, retreating to the cool crags of the forest or heading to the high alpine peaks during the heat of the summer.

For Allen, this was his way to give back to the people of Revelstoke. “Some people do the Lions Club or Rotary. [Begbie Bluffs] is my contribution to the community,” he says.

Although mountaineering has deep-seeded roots in this area, the history of rock climbing itself is significantly more recent. So recent in fact, local climbers may take offense to being included in the ‘Heritage Moments’ column! Nonetheless, these climbers are local pioneers of the sport. Their hard work has made it possible for the following generation of climbers to enjoy a wide variety of routes with little or no effort (apart from getting to the top of course).

The length of time it takes to put up a route depends on many factors including access, length of route, difficulty and the amount of cleaning required to remove loose rock and moss.

Some of the first known route development around Revelstoke was done by David Jones in the late 1970’s, who later wrote the well-known Selkirks South and North mountaineering guidebooks. Along with Roger Laurilla and Jim Bay, he developed a few routes at Lauretta Slabs, located about 20 kilometres east of Revelstoke. In the early 1990’s this area was retrofitted and expanded by Ruedi Beglinger.

Allen’s routes are typically mixed, meaning they have some bolts, but also require the climber to place protection in the natural features of the rock. Mountain Guide, Troy Kirwan, discovered what is now known as the Shaketown area while flying in a helicopter in 1999. He also discovered Silvertip, in Mount Revelstoke National Park, the same way in 2002. The dense foliage and moss-covered rocks of the rainforest mean that potential climbing areas can remain indefinitely hidden without a keen eye.

There are close to 300 routes at 13 nearby climbing areas included in Swiss mountain guide, Ruedi Beglinger’s, new guidebook, Revelstoke Rocks. Scanning the route information tells us who developed the climb and when. But how often do we actually stop to appreciate their hours of hard work, or ponder their drive and motivation?

“It takes days and days,” Allen explains: “a week anyways.”

Get Outta Here and go here...

by Colin Titsworth

When the snowline creeps back into the alpine, our Canadian instincts are triggered. We begin heaving dusty gear, dogs and fishing rods into our vehicles to go camping. Recreation sites are an ideal budget option that can be found throughout the Southern Interior where the B.C. government claims to have more than 800 camper-friendly locations for you to choose from. The Forest Service Recreation Site program was fostered in 1972 by Harry Marshall, who was chief recreation officer at the time. The program blossomed to a point where the province boasted more than 1,300 forest recreation sites equipped with basic camping amenities such as picnic tables, pit toilets and fire rings. The official title of Forest Recreation Site was shortened to Recreation Site in 2006 when the government transferred the responsibility of these locations away from the Ministry of Forest and Range to the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts. Three types of recreation sites exist today: managed with fees, managed without fees and user maintained. Common throughout all categories is the unavailability of electricity and potable drinking water. You will also have to pack out everything you bring in and switch locations to a new spot after 14 days at the same recreation site. Recreation sites are often situated in gorgeous settings where people can simply enjoy hanging out in the great outdoors. The following is a list of five recreation sites that are yours to discover regardless of whether you point your vehicle to the north, south, east or west. The intention is not to reveal secret locations; it is to provide awareness of the treasures we have in our area. 1) Eagle Bay Ten point five km down the Shelter Bay Forest Service Road you will find 19 campsites situated along the multi-tiered peninsula that stretches into the Upper Arrow Lake. A row of waterfront sites are positioned just off the south facing cobblestone beach above the protected bay. Our neighbours with the red license plates have discovered this location so there is fierce

competition for the waterfront sites during the summer months but the shoulder seasons offer serenity. This campground was originally part of a Pope and Talbot Tree Farm license but they sold it back to the government for a dollar and gave up overseeing the land. 2) Wadey This large recreation site is located 25 km from Revelstoke on Highway 23 north and is the first of several recreation sites that you will encounter on this spectacular drive. The 30 site campground is managed by local contractors so there is a $10/ day fee ($5 for seniors) per site. Prime water front camping and a boat launch make this an ideal choice for those escaping from cell phone service. The site is named in honour of Pat Wadey, who was a dedicated forester with a strong passion for the community of Revelstoke and the surrounding wilderness.

3) Box Lake Eagle Bay Recreation Site with 19 peninsula campsites. Just south of Nakusp on Highway 6 is a narrow road that leads you to the well-stocked fishing lake ing river. The river is the great attraction here with a and recreation site known as Box Lake. Located in a variety of options for paddling, snorkeling and floating lush hemlock forest are eight sites that have ample to take out points downstream. Fishermen claim most shade during the summer. Gas powered boat motors of the sites when the salmon begin running in the late are not permitted but anglers can use electric motors or summer, so you may need a bit of luck to get a spot. paddle power to catch rainbow trout and eastern brook There are several hiking trails and a fish hatchery in the trout. The lake also becomes a good swimming hole area if you get bored of catching fish.

Twenty-five camping spots are staggered through the forest just back from the meander-

WANT TO BUY? WANT TO SELL?

5) Waitabit Creek This is one of the first camping options east of Glacier National Park. The nine camping spots beside the creek are easily accessed by driving 2 km up the Big Bend highway that is 25 km north of Golden. This recreation site is in close proximity to Marl Creek Provincial Park, which has stands of old growth forests and one of the last natural sections of the Columbia River. Bring binoculars to bird watch in the wetlands or a cooler full of beer to drink down by the creek.

When we start talking about food, the excitement elevates Sonia’s voice as she describes gourmet sandwich concoctions and mouthwatering flavours of gelato. She almost jumps out of her seat when she explains, “Affogato is a shot of espresso poured over a scoop of gelato, which makes for an amazing blend of flavours that are hot and cold.”

Get a Taste of the East

If you were turning FIVE again what would you do for your birthday?

by Karen McCall

Maritimer Steve Smith was joined by bass player Shannon Sternloff and percussionist Trevor Wallach to make up MKP two years ago. Sternloff and Wallach already play in two other bands together but saw the value in creating this unique trio.

What do you get when you put three musicians together with almost 80 combined years of musical experience and add some zippy east coast Canadian lyrics? Throw upbeat rock and pop tunes into the mix and you’ve got the Maritime Kitchen Party (MKP) band.

Left to right: Shannon Sternloff, audience guest, Trevor Wallach and Steve Smith play their upbeat tunes.

Fitting for Smith whose own upbringing was very musical. “My mom was always singing,” Smith explains. A teacher by trade, Smith has a lot of energy to share with pupils and audiences alike. Sternloff is also a teacher and does supply work for School District 19.

What the fortune cookie is saying for the MKP:

Shannon Sternloff will be juggling his time amongst nine other bands. He will always, however, make time for the MKP.

Steve Smith will be neck deep with his involvement in starting a non-profit recording arts association for Revelstoke musicians.

Trevor Wallach will be on the road touring across B.C. with his wife and two children. He will be back in time for a MKP gig on New Year’s Eve, 2015.
