Thirteen candidates seek six city council seats AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

A total of 13 candidates will be vying for six spots at the Revelstoke city council table in the Nov. 19 municipal election. Nobody challenged incumbent mayor David Raven, meaning he will surely be acclaimed for another term. In addition to other election coverage, over the next five weeks the Revelstoke Times Review will

be running a question and answer series that will highlight candidates’ views and positions on the issues. We’ll print their answers directly. If you have a question you’d like to ask the candidates, we encourage you to get in touch with us. This week, we’re starting with a basic introduction. We’ve included the first half of the candidates this week, and will follow up with the remainder next week. Here’s the question we’ve posed:

raised and continue to raise my family here. I am a three-term city councillor with the City of Revelstoke and I feel that I have some of the experience and knowledge of the workings of the city and local government to serve the varying interests of the different parts of the community to help work toward an even better future for our community. I appreciate and value the old and look forward to the new. I am a lawyer, trained mediator, business owner (times two), homeowner, landlord and tenant. I understand where the money comes from to provide the services that the city provides and where that money goes. I feel that I have made some contributions in my past council terms but also feel some frustration with things that I think could be done better and am interested in working to see things done better. I believe that Revelstoke has a bright future but it will not come without work and cooperation from everyone in the community. I bring a thoughtful and balanced approach to council.

Linda Nixon Hi this is Linda Jean Nixon, I am a registered nurse who has lived In Revelstoke for 28 years. We chose to move here to buy a business and raise our two boys. I am known for my common sense and integrity. I have decided to run for council for two reasons. I am semi-retired and have the time to commit to the reading research and networking needed to make good decisions. I want to give back to the jewel of a community that our family has loved from day one. My values are family-centered and I come from a large family in the Kootenays that has a third generation small business. Working in the health care field both here and other locations in B.C. I have led teams, developed programs and policies. I was an Ad-

minstrator before regionalization of healthcare and talked directly to Victoria ministry staff to build the solarium at Moberly Manor, to start the Adult Day program and provide Volunteer Program. I worked with other nurses in the community to start the Hospice program. My compassion and caring ethics led me to take many management and clinical courses. I am a life long learner. I am currently working as a semi-retired nurse at Mount Cartier Cottage. In November I am travelling to Victoria for an intensive week long clinical course. I look forward to serving the residents of Revelstoke and I am interested in healthy neighbourhoods that are safe and vibrant.

Jim Ritchie My name is Jim Ritchie, I am 62 years old, and have been a resident of Revelstoke for 30 some years. I’ve been a businessman for 25 years managing Columbia Chevron, and for the past two years have worked with the RMR construction project. I am very proud of our community and believe that it has been a great place to raise my seven children. During this time I have seen our city undergo many changes, some with very positive results and some with not so. Over the past couple of years I have become increasingly concerned with a number of issues we are facing and some of the decisions that have been made, and this has prompted me to want to get involved on the council level where I feel I can utilize my abilities and experience in serving my community. I have been President of Big Eddy Water board for a couple of terms, served on other leadership boards, been a retail businessman for many years, have knowledge of both construction and development plans and have served in many volunteer positions. I have a deep sense of commitment, a strong work ethic and desire to serve. I believe we need strong leadership with a fresh approach and abil-

NE WS ity to make tough decisions if we are going to be able to move ahead in development while looking out for the concerns of our residents, making Revelstoke a place where they will want to stay and others will want to come.

Jody Simm Hello everyone, my name is Jody Simm, and I’m one of your candidates for city councillor in the upcoming municipal election. I’m 34 years old, and I’ve lived in Revelstoke and worked in the local forest industry for the last six years. In the last four years we’ve seen a lot of change; more change than I’ve seen in any community before in such a short time. We have an amazing new ski hill, a lot of great new backcountry recreational areas being developed and a more diverse arts, music and cultural scene. We’ve also all faced a lot of challenges with the rapid change, and as a worker, a parent and a mobile home park resident (making me both a renter and a property tax payer), I’ve experienced many of the same challenges as you. I’ve decided to run for council because I’d like to help to make Revelstoke an easier place to live for everyone. It may well be impossible to get rents and property values back to where they were five and six years ago. But there are still lots of people from the working class who’ve managed to hold onto their homes, and even to buy homes, and I’d like to work to get our property taxes at a more affordable level so that we can afford to stay. I believe we can do this, while improving our infrastructure, making cost effective environmental, social and cultural initiatives, creating a more financially inclusive city for everyone.

Gary Starling I came to Revelstoke in 1980. I was actually travelling through on a holiday and decided to stay an extra day. One day turned into two,

two into a week and finally I made a decision to quit my job and stay in Revelstoke. I have a passion for Revelstoke that is typical of those who live here. I have been with CP Rail since 1980 and I have worked as a locomotive engineer since 1985. Recently I have taken positions within our union, (Secretary Treasurer & Legislative Representative). These positions have given me experience in both finances as well as government offices. I work with members to resolve problems with WCB, Transport Canada and others. I decided to run for councillor because I am concerned about the future of Revelstoke. I believe the city is a great place to work, live and raise a family. In the last few years we have seen our taxes and cost of living rise at an alarming rate. At the same time we continue to spend. This has put tremendous pressure on business and resident taxpayers. As well it is undermining the dreams of those who want to make a home in Revelstoke but are finding the cost of living stifling. I want Revelstoke to continue to be a desirable and affordable place to live. For those reasons and others I have decided to run for councillor.

Murray Velichko My wife Hollie, children Griffin (8) and Andie (5), and I (40) have called R ev e l s t o k e home for nearly five years. I am a professional engineer and have had an extensive career spanning multiple disciplines and roles, including leading large teams. We moved to Revelstoke not only because of the surrounding environment, but for the welcoming community and the wealth of opportunities. As a business owner (Frisby

Ridge Construction), I have had the opportunity to work in the community and have constructed a couple of the new buildings in town such as the brick building on the corner of 2nd and Orton. I have worked with the Revelstoke Community Housing Society in building their first ‘affordable’ housing project and I understand the social economic concerns that are apparent in Revelstoke. I am running for city council as I believe that we require a fresh perspective in council to reenergize economic development while maintaining fiscal responsibilities and social and environmental concerns.

Phil Welock Thank you for allowing us to introduce ourselves in this manner. My name is Phil Welock and I am running for my second term on Revelstoke council. I am 63 years of age. I moved here with my family in 1987 and was Government Agent at the historic Courthouse until retiring in 2002. I then bought City Transfer which has been providing freight services since 1915. Once the business was sold in 2007, I began to look for another challenge. Having been in public service all my life, council was a natural! I was able to meet most citizens in one way or another and have a good idea of what the community needs but that is changing! Our twins have moved off to other communities to pursue their careers but still are proud to call Revelstoke their home. My wife Lynne is manager of RBC and shares our love for this beautiful, safe, clean little city. *** See the Oct. 26 issue of the Times Review for the second half of council candidate introductions, and subsequent questions in the following weeks.

Capsule Comments With John Teed We know that a pharmacist invented Coca Cola back in 1886. But what we didn’t know was that a pharmacist first created the sundae back in 1892. He added cherry syrup and a candied cherry to a couple scoops of ice cream for a local minister of the church one Sunday. He wanted to patent it as a Sunday but since the day of the week wasn’t patentable, called it a

sundae instead. True story! October is Eye Health Month. As we age, regular eye exams are really important. If you haven’t had your eyes checked in the past few years, do it soon. Often, changes in the eye can be detected early enough to start treatment to avoid the vision deteriorating. Depression affects about

one in ten men. The symptoms can sometimes appear as drinking more or becoming difficult to live with. Interestingly, where women often gain weight when depressed, men seem to lose weight. Depression is something that should not be ignored. See your doctor for help. If your doctor finds that medication may help your depression, give it at least one month

before deciding if it’s working or not. It can be frustrating but these medications do take effect. Be patient. You know you are getting older when you have way too much room in your house but not enough room in your medicine cabinet. If you aren’t sure if a medication is OK to keep, call our pharmacists. We can help.

First look at new high school wows RSS students ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

The words of excitement echoed through the hallways. “Amazing!” “Exciting!” “Awesome!” “Incredible!” “Best school ever!” On Wednesday morning, about 100 Revelstoke Secondary School students got their first taste of the new high school. They gathered in the entrance of the old school, waiting to be led out to the new building. There were cheers as the students made the walk to the new building, with principal Mike Hooker in the lead. He led them past the main entrance and around the corner to the community entrance across from the Revelstoke Forum, where school district superintendent Anne Cooper was waiting. Once at the door, they could not be kept out. They pushed their way through the open doors, desperate to get a look at the new building. Once inside, the excitement built again. They gathered just inside the entrance and Hooker stood on the staircase to welcome them. He pointed out the wood ceiling some 50 feet above their heads. It was made

from trees logged around the Alkolkolex. he pointed out. The students then flowed up the stairs to the upper floor, where they stood in awe as they gaped down at the multipurpose room, with its floor-toceiling windors, below. They gaped through windows at the gym below. “Mr. Hooker, I must say I am completely satisfied,” one student said. That was it for the organized part of the tour. Once let free, off they ran, like kids at an amusement park. They scampered about the upper-floor classrooms and science labs. They tested out the bathrooms (“It’s like a shopping mall.”) and then they ran downstairs to the bottom floor and the wood and auto shops, the band room and the changing rooms. “I’m liking the showers,” said one student as she walked out of the change rooms. One girl stopped to take a drink from a water fountain. “How’s the water?” she was asked. “It’s alright,” she replied. Then it was back up to the main floor, where students checked out the teacher’s lounge and were running around the office as Brenda Deibert was testing out the phones. Outside

on the large deck, a game of hacky-sack broke out – one of many new school firsts that are sure to happen in the next few days. There was a lot to impress them as they snapped pictures with their cell phone cameras One student commented on the green paint job in the classrooms. Others remarked about the large windows in each classroom. “When you’re in a classroom you can see out!” one exclaimed. “I’m so excited about the high ceilings,” said another. The school wasn’t quite finished; workers were assembling desks, some lockers were missing doors and a fence still surrounded the school, but it was pretty close to being ready. Soon the fun was over and principal Hooker used his megaphone to round up the students and make way for a second group. “This is the best school ever!” said one girl. “I love it.” “It’s awesome!” said another. “I dont’ want to leave.” That’s probably the first time a student ever said they didn’t want to leave school. Fortunately for her, she didn’t have to wait long to get back in – classes started in the new building on Monday.

City to study extending water to homes near RMR AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

A request by the local Columbia-Shuswap Regional District area director to have a dozen residences located near Revelstoke Mountain Resort hooked up to the City of Revelstoke’s water supply will have to wait until city staff study the proposal. This study could take weeks, even months. Even if the idea moves forward, it could take years before any pipe is laid. CSRD Area B director Loni Parker appeared at city council’s Oct. 11 meeting where she argued that a clause in the resort’s Master Development Agreement with the city, regional district and province states that the resort would be responsible for fixing and paying for any problems they create for local water users. She said two incidents this year that led to contamination of local water supplies were ample proof that Revelstoke Mountain Resort should now take steps to provide that alternate source of water. Her solution was to extend the city’s water supply to these residences and to get the resort to pay for it. “It would be at no cost

to the municipality,” Parker said. She argued the residents had put up with construction, noise, dust, increased taxes and now water quality issues. “They have been very tolerant, but when it comes down to having potable water, I think it’s a health issue, and I think there’s a moral issue there on making sure these folks’ water is protected or replaced,” Parker said. “And in this case, protection hasn’t been there and replacement is the best alternative.” Bringing in city water to local residences could also help free up the resort to use water on the mountain for industrial resort uses. She added a city water system would help the resort by enabling snow-making . “To me, it’s a winwin-win, if you will,” she said. Parker pushed for an exception to an existing City of Revelstoke policy that prohibits extending water supplies outside of city limits. She said by gaining an exception from council she could move forward with the initiative. Following her presentation, mayor David Raven raised a number of issues, suggesting a decision wouldn’t come soon and that putting in a new water

system would take “years” to develop. He viewed the issue as much more than just a policy question. Raven said there were about a dozen water licenses in the area, and those owners would need to be consulted. He questioned who would be the purveyor of the new extension, noting health liability issues would make the city extremely cautious about the final operating structure. More than once he suggested that instead of extending the water outside of city limits, an alternative would be to extend city boundaries and then provide the service. “Are they all opposed to coming into the city?” he asked of area residents’ wishes. Raven said it was his understanding the extension would require much more work than just extending the trunk line by an estimated 750 metres. He believed that the entire existing water system would have to be replaced, including pipes leading to all residences. This was due to potential technical, liability and heath issues.

MLA REPORT

BY NORM MACDONALD Over the last number of months, I have heard more and more objections about the installation of Smart meters on every BC Hydro customer’s home. There have also been a number of news stories with headlines that ask just how ‘smart’ it is to push Smart meters on those who do not want them. It seems to me that Premier Clark’s BC Liberals haven’t

learned a single thing from the HST debacle. Instead of reevaluating their actions, they are continuing to show complete contempt for the wishes of the people that they are supposed to serve. The BC Liberals have failed to make a compelling case for the installation of Smart meters. In fact, they have removed Smart meters from the oversight of the BC Utilities Commission which is the body that is tasked with ensuring that actions taken are in the best interests of BC Hydro ratepayers. I have always believed that transparency in government is necessary to protect not only the electorate, but also those who have been elected. Transparency ensures that decisions are made following a proper process, protecting elected

officials from misunderstandings, and, in the end, results in the best decisions. Elected officials who are committed to providing the best for those they represent will not allow that openness and oversight to be lessened. Whenever a decision is removed from scrutiny, you can be sure that the decisionmakers are concerned that the decision that has been made cannot be defended. Can the BC Liberals actually make a convincing economic case that spending $1 billion on Smart meters will result in larger savings? Have health concerns been adequately investigated? Who is receiving the most benefit from the installation of Smart meters? British Columbians are so concerned about Smart meters that at the recent Union of BC

Municipalities convention, local government officials voted to support a moratorium on the further installation of Smart meters. When Christy Clark took over the leadership of the BC Liberals she promised a new way of doing government. She tried to distance herself from Gordon Campbell’s record. But it is clear that nothing has changed. The BC Liberals are going to handle the Smart meter controversy in exactly the same way they handled the HST. And British Columbians are going to pay the price. If you want to learn more about the Smart metering program and the company that was awarded the Smart meter contract, google ‘Tyee McMartin Smart meters’.

Boutique was truly inspiring Editor, I know that I am not alone in wanting to acknowledge with sadness the closure of a long-time Revelstoke business, Inspiration Gift Boutique. While we are all happy that its proprietor, Karen Olsson can now enjoy her well-deserved retirement, many of us will miss being able to stop into her beautiful store, not only to pick up a gift for some-

LETTERS one (or ourselves) but also just to savour a few minutes of blissful browsing. For 24 years, Karen has shared her talents in choosing the best products and creating gorgeous shelf and window displays. Those abilities combined with her friendly nature and extraordinary customer service have made the boutique a unique, in-

valuable, “go-to” gift store in Revelstoke and it will be sorely missed. Along with many fellow Revelstokians who have enjoyed shopping at Inspiration Gift Boutique, I wish Karen all the best in her retirement and thank her for her commitment and dedication to our community in providing wonderful service for so many years.

NEWS BRIEFS

New Illecillewaet pedestrian bridge named Mark Kingsbury Memorial Bridge AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The new pedestrian bridge being built across the Illecillewaet River will be named the Mark Kingsbury Memorial Bridge. The decision to name the bridge after the former president of Canadian Mountain Holidays came at the Oct. 11 Revelstoke city council meeting. Kingsbury passed away about a decade ago in a motorcycle accident. A staff report explained the city had approached the Mark Kingsbury Foundation about six years ago for funding to help create the long-planned pedestrian bridge. The staff report says the foundation was prepared to provide $100,000 once the project was confirmed, if it was named after Kingsbury. Now that the project is underway, the city has again asked the foundation to re-confirm their commitment. Again, the answer was yes, if the city was willing to commit to naming the bridge after Kingsbury. Councillors Chris Johnston and Phil Welock expressed some concerns. Johnston worried the decision deviated from city policy on naming streets and other landmarks, while Welock felt it would be “an error on council’s part” to not put the decision out to public comment. Coun. Peter Frew disagreed, noting the city had originally approached the foundation for funding, saying council should “carry out that commitment.” Mayor David Raven agreed. “I think it’s only fair that we recognize our previous commitments to the Kingsbury family who in fact initiated this project many, many years ago.” In the final vote, council was split down the middle. The mayor was the deciding vote in favour. There are plans to create two new educational panels once the bridge is created. They will be modelled after the existing ones on the walkway near the Greenbelt. One will focus on

railway history, and the other with highlight the heli-ski industry and its contribution to the local economy. The following biography of Mark Kingsbury was provided in the council agenda package:

MARK KINGSBURY BIOGRAPHY Mark Kingsbury graduated from the University of New Hampshire in the early 1970s and moved to Western Canada. Mark started working in the heli-skiing industry with Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) in Banff. Mark worked as a guide, as the manager of the Bugaboo Lodge, and as an executive at the head office. Mark eventually took over as the President of CMH, the hand-picked successor to the company’s founder, the legendary Hans Gmoser. As described by one of his industry colleagues, Mark “was a dynamic figure shaping Canadian Mountain Holidays into the premier, modern backcountry heli-skiing company with few peers...” Mark spent a great deal of time in Revelstoke, and strongly believed in the aspirations of the community to support a strong tourism industry. Over the last few years of this life, Mark Kingsbury spoke often about the environmental, social and economic roles that adventure tourism can – and does – play in Western Canada. This was not just talk; it was his passionately held belief. He knew that wilderness tourism businesses could achieve success while protecting environmental values; that they could be a source not just of jobs but also of enriching careers; and that they could play many important roles in communities. He was never afraid to take a leadership role to continue to make these goals a reality. In particular, Mark was increasingly concerned about the need to bring solid facts and a sense of reality to the discussions which he had with all levels of government. The Mark Kingsbury Foundation was created to act as a long-term legacy to support Mark’s vision and passion. Its purpose is to give funding support to environmental, tourism and social initiatives throughout British Columbia.

Alberta murder trial arraignment date postponed A scheduled Sept. 26 arraignment date for former Revelstoke resident Brandon Cruickshank has been postponed until Oct. 17. Cruickshank is facing two counts of first degree murder stemming from an Oct. 14, 2010 shooting near Cold Lake, Alta. The objective of the arraignment is to set a trial date. Jeff Rudiak is the Chief Crown Prosecutor in the St. Paul, Alta. prosecutor’s office. Rudiak told the Times Review the delay was routine. He said it would likely be a year before the trial commenced and estimated the trial could last a month to six weeks. Brandon Cruickshank, 19, entered a plea of not guilty to two counts of first degree murder in Cold Lake Provincial Court on Jan. 12, 2011. The charges stem from an Oct. 14, 2010 shooting on a rural property near Cold Lake, Alta. that left two men dead. Jimmy Armillotta, 27, of Revelstoke and Fil Kedzior, 21, who has some connections to Revelstoke, were found dead on the scene after a neighbour reported a man with a gun outside the remote property in the early morning hours.

PUBLIC NOTICE

CITY OF REVELSTOKE/SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 19 ADVANCE VOTING OPPORTUNITIES

100’ AERIAL PLATFORM APPARATUS LOAN AUTHORIZATION BYLAW NO. 1998 PUBLIC NOTICE OF ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS THE PUBLIC IS REQUESTED TO TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to Section 86 of the Community Charter, Council of the City of Revelstoke has given three readings to the 100’ Aerial Platform Apparatus Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1998. This Bylaw will authorize the borrowing of a sum not exceeding $915,000 payable over a period of 25 years to purchase the 100’ Aerial Platform Apparatus (ladder fire truck). The general description of the area to which the Alternative Approval Process applies to is the boundary of the City of Revelstoke. AND FURTHER TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to the provisions of Section 86 of the Community Charter, the Council of the City of Revelstoke may adopt the 100’ Aerial Platform Apparatus Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1998 to finance the purchase of the ladder fire truck, unless within 30 days of the publication of the second notice in the Revelstoke Times Review, that deadline being 12:00 noon, Monday, November 21, 2011, at least 10% of the electors of the City of Revelstoke indicate on an Elector Response Form their opposition to the proposed Loan Authorization Bylaw. In that event, the Council of the City of Revelstoke must obtain the assent of the electors on the Bylaw before proceeding. The Community Charter of the Province of British Columbia requires that in order for the elector opposition to be valid: 1. The person signing the form must be an eligible elector of the City of Revelstoke. 2. The form must include the full name, signature and residential address of the elector and must be in the form established by the Council of the City of Revelstoke. Forms are available at City Hall. 3. The number of elector responses required to prevent the Council of the City of Revelstoke from proceeding without the assent of the electors is 375 for this bylaw. The Elector Response Form will be available for signing in the Finance Department at the main entrance to City Hall, 216 Mackenzie Ave., Revelstoke, B.C. between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday inclusive except for statutory holidays until the deadline. The deadline for signatures to be received will be no later than 12:00 noon, Monday, November 21, 2011. AND FURTHER, this is the second and final publication of this notice. Teresa LeRose, Deputy Director, Corporate Administration ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Explanation of the Alternative Approval Process: As described in this notice, if an elector opposes borrowing an amount up to $915,000 for the purchase of the 100’ Aerial Platform Apparatus (ladder fire truck), the elector may sign an elector response form indicating this opposition. If at least 10% of the electors of Revelstoke indicate their opposition in this way, then the City of Revelstoke cannot proceed with the borrowing without obtaining the assent of the majority of the electors voting on a referendum on this question. Electors should note that this question applies to borrowing only, and Council could choose to proceed with the project without borrowing. Project Information: The City of Revelstoke has a 1977 Scot 55’ Snorkel Apparatus in its fleet, which is 34 years of age and requires replacing. Pursuant to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)1901 Standard for Automotive Apparatus which states, “Apparatus not built to NFPA apparatus standards or manufactured prior to 1979 should be considered for upgrading or replacement”. This is to reduce the risk of injury to firefighters, increasing load carrying capacity, potential height requirements and to reduce the City’s Public Fire Classification rating. The current Public Fire Classification is 7 and the goal is to reduce that number to 5. Long-Term Borrowing: The City’s long-term borrowing is under the Municipal Finance Authority (MFA). The amount to be borrowed is $915,000. The estimated cost of borrowing at 4.13% is $755,790.00 over a period of 20 years as the Financial Plan anticipates the debenture to be paid in full at that time. The City’s relationship with MFA anticipates a return of $300,453.97. The annual payments will be $68,516.80 at 20 years for a total payment of $1,370,336.03. For more details on long-term borrowing, please contact the Finance Department at 250-837-2161.

I think that electing any one particular person should have an impact on improving of the quality of education offered in Revelstoke. They need to bring with them a willingness to work hard and become informed about all of the important issues affecting the quality of programming we can provide with the resources allocated to us. I believe that the Board of Education functions best with a spirit of collaboration; ongoing collaboration with the District staff, collaboration with community stakeholders involved in literacy and education and collaboration with the students and parents in our community. If elected, I will continue to participate fully on the Finance and Facilities Committee to provide a voice to encourage the Ministry of Education to review the current funding formulas, a process that has recently begun as a result of school districts across the Province submitting input to the Technical Review Committee. I am running again for the position of Trustee on the Board of Education to continue to bring a voice of support to our early learning partnerships with key stakeholders in the community. I am committed to public education and to providing the best programming and supports to the students of School District #19. I want all of the students in our school district to receive the highest quality of education we can provide.

There are numerous reasons for my wanting to be a trustee, the main one being, I have three grandsons just starting out in the system and two granddaughters beginning in a few years. I

want to make absolutely SURE that they will continue to receive the best education that is possible and I know, with my experience and understanding, that I will enable them to do just that.

Alan Chell I am running for school board because I am a very strong supporter of the British Columbia public education system and I believe I can contribute at both a local and provincial level. The next three years will be an incredibly exciting and challenging time with the opening of our new secondary and elementary schools and our Neighbourhoods of Learning projects of the theatre, gymnastics centre and early learning hub. We will also need to address the issue of future use of our closed schools. We are regarded as one of the highest performing school districts in the province and we will need to continue to support all of our programs and initiatives that have led to this success.

Mauro Morrone I am running again to continue the pledge and oath I made to all the students, staff, and community 6 years ago when first elected to the board; to represent the community and advocate for public education. My passion and commitment has grown and intensified over this period. I continue to support creating the best learning and working environment we can for our district. I mirror the district’s vision of creating an education system in Revelstoke that enables all learners to achieve academic success to their potential, obtain personal fulfillment, and demonstrate social responsibility. There are many difficult decisions that trustees have to make. There are many factors that affect/influence our decision-making, including, but not limited to, fiscal responsibilities/ restraints, labour relations, government mandates, parental/community issues etc. Respecting these challenges, I still pledge to be accountable to the community with every decision I make. I believe every decision I make will better prepare our children to be the future leaders of tomorrow.

Jewelles Smith As a parent of two children in the school district, both with learning difficulties, I am very interested in ensuring that our school district meets the needs of children with special needs in the classroom. I also believe that parent participation on boards is essential to having our needs heard. The board has done a great job in the past, but I believe it is important to bring in new faces and new ideas. The best way to meet the needs of all participants in our school district (students, teachers, support staff, administration, and parents) is to be actively involved, and as an engaged parent and active parent, I believe the best place for me to continue to ensure that we have an outstanding education system for our children is at the board level.

I believe passionately that public school education is an essential foundation of a democratic society. It can do much to promote understanding and acceptance of diversity among peoples, reduce antisocial behaviours and give all children an equal opportunity for success in life. The District has initiated several programs in the past ten years that have resulted in great progress towards these goals. I would like to continue as a school trustee to support further improvements in the education of our children.

I’ve been a school trustee for 13 years and I want to be here to see the opening of both of the new schools. And for the stuff I do in the schools with the kids – like cooking hamburgers and hot dogs and sports days and that sort of thing.

Elmer Rorstad I feel that my participation on the Board of Trustees will help to maintain and enhance the current high standards of education being delivered to students in Revelstoke. My experience as a teacher,

coach, employer of students and now a parent of a two year old will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the table. On a personal note, being a new parent has created the desire to see him receive the best education possible. If elected, I will familiarize myself with all components of the educational system in Revelstoke and make informative decisions benefitting the students of Revelstoke.

David Francey has won three Juno awards, yet his path to success and acclaim was definitely the long one. The 57-year-old folk singer, who will be performing at the Amble Inn on Oct. 25, grew up in a family that loved to sing while on road trips. He started writing poetry at the age of 10 and started turning those into songs as he entered his twenties. Still, it wasn’t until the late-90s, when Francey was well into his 40s, that his wife Beth convinced him to take his songs public and perform them in front of people. “I never had any intention of doing anything with it. It was Beth who heard them and realized there was something to do with them,” he said in an interview while on his way to a show in Saskatoon. “I fought her all the way but she won, as usual.” It only took him one show to figure out music was something he should focus on. “I remember the first show I did and walking out of the place and thinking, ‘This is what I’m here for.’” Francey’s big break was when he was discovered by the CBC at Town-

SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON COSMETIC PESTICIDES

COSMETIC USE OF PESTICIDES

Chair: Bill Bennett, MLA (Kootenay East) Deputy Chair: Rob Fleming, MLA (Victoria–Swan Lake)

shippers Day in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Out of that he secured some studio time and recorded his first album, Torn Screen Door, which was released in 1999. The follow-up to his debut, 2002’s Far End of Summer, brought Francey enduring attention across Canada and won him his first Juno Award for Best Roots & Traditional Album. That was when he gave up his construction job to focus on music full time. “I remember the first award we won and I turned to Beth and said, ‘We’re in a small club. This is a real honour,’” he said. “I thought, ‘Of all the songs that poured into the Juno committee, they picked my album,’ and it really felt great, it truly did. “I didn’t take them lightly and it was a big factor into going into music full time.” Since then he won two more Juno’s, a Canadian Folk Music Award for best contemporary singer and an International Acoustic Music Award. Francey’s music evokes both his Scottish childhood (he was born there and his family immigrated to Canada when he was 12) and his frequent travels across Canada. He has hitchhiked across the country three times, the first when he was only 16. “I remember sleeping under an overpass in Regina when this big Prairie storm came in. There was lightning everywhere,” he said. “It was just one of those things you never forget in your life.” Those memories inform his song writing and tales from those travels show up in his lyrics to today. Even now, he still loves travelling across Canada – though now he always has a roof over his head and an audience waiting to hear him. The show at the Amble Inn will be his second one there this year. He was there previously on July 26 and described it as a “lovely place to play” with a “nice, intimate atmosphere.” “I love your town and that railway museum is a killer,” he said. David Francey sings at the Amble Inn on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. He will be accompanied by musicians Chris Cool and Mark Westberg. Tickets are $15 and are available at Talisman Trading and the Cash Store.

Looking to give back? The fire department needs volunteers ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Blair Muldoon (2nd from left) gives (r-l) Mimi Pelletier, Daniel Diederichs, Byron Wilkey and Ron Campbell a tour of the fire station. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

Blair Muldoon’s goal is to become a full-time firefighter. A five-year veteran of the Revelstoke fire department, the journeyman electrician has volunteered his time to the department while seeking out full-time employment. Earlier this month, he was leading tours during an open house of the fire department as part of a drive to boost the number of volunteers with the department. “Because the numbers have gone down we’re trying to get more groups in,” he told one group of four prospective volunteers. Over the past year the number of volunteer firefighters has decreased to 32 from 24. While it has generally been a quiet year for the fire department, the decline puts pressure on the remaining members. As a result, the fire department is looking to recruit

10 new members to help swell the ranks. Several dozen people showed up to take a look. The tours were given by experienced volunteers while others underwent training. One group of volunteers was in the midst of driver training; the trucks’ engines sometimes drowning out the voices of the tour guides. Another group of volunteers was in the firefighters’ lounge, receiving training by video. I joined Muldoon while he spoke to four potential recruits: Mimi Pelletier, Daniel Diederichs, Byron Wilkey and Ron Campbell. They all gave different reason for wanting to join, ranging from a desire to give back to the community, to acquiring new skills and using it as a launching pad to becoming a career firefighter. “Maybe harden up a little bit,” added Wilkey. “Our generation is a little soft in the gut.” Muldoon told them the role of a volunteer, from assisting on first re-

sponder calls to battling raging fires. If they choose, they can also join the Revelstoke Highway Rescue Society and assist on highway accidents. Volunteers receive training in all areas. As a first responder, you can achieve your level three certification. You also learn all aspects of battling a fire, how to drive the trucks and more. “You get a good mix of people here,” Muldoon said. “Whatever your background is, you can apply it to skills in the fire hall.” There are certain expectations to meet as a volunteer. For one, you have to attend 60 per cent of all training sessions. For another, you’re expected to go out on 50 per cent of all calls that come through. Training is every Wednesday from

7:30-9 p.m., “Even if it means skipping wing night,” fire chief Rob Girard told prospective recruits. The fire department is looking to recruit eight volunteers right now but will be recruiting new groups once or twice a year to ensure there is always a steady influx of people. “When you join this organization, you’re automatically getting 41 new friends,” said Girard. To join, recruits must fill out an application form and undergo a basic medical checkup from their doctor. The application asks questions about ones community work, physical condition, pastimes and other experiences and skills. The deadline to apply is October 31 and interviews and practical evaluations will follow from there.

Revelstoke Highway Rescue Society brought its truck to a conference of the regional Hospital Auxiliary associations earlier this month. The society is one of several organizations the auxiliary supports outside the hospital. Randy Driediger, the head of the rescue society, said the organization has received about $140,000 from the auxiliary over the years. That support will mean a larger logo on the truck for the auxiliary. The rescue society also showed its support for the auxiliary by dressing up in a fashion show during the conference. Unfortunately, the media were not allowed into the show.

Captain of the Revelstoke Grizzlies, the best defenceman in his division last year and KIJHL All Star. Now Reid Blinkhorn can add linesman to his resume. Blinkhorn, the Grizzlies star 20-year-old defenceman, was pressed into service on Saturday when no referees were assigned to the game against the Sicamous Eagles. Local ref Jon Dandie was called up and Blinkhorn and Eagles’ captain Brad Robinson acted as linesmen. According to coach Randy Quakenbush, the move isn’t unprecedented. In fact, it happened to him once when he was captain of his junior team many years ago. He said it’s an old hockey rule that goes back ages and when the teams realized there were no refs, they consulted with the league and found out that the two captains would indeed be asked to officiate. “They expected our captain to both oblige and perform those roles,” said Quakenbush. “It’s not unheard of but it’s extremely rare. It’s been 40 years since I’ve seen it invoked. “I thought it was as fair a situation as could happen.” Revelstoke won both of its games on the weekend, defeating the lowly Columbia Valley Rockies 8-2 in Invermere on Friday and Sicamous 7-1 at home on Saturday.

Friday’s game saw Revelstoke roar out of the gate, with a goal by Jordan Bledsoe less than two minutes in. He scored again about four minutes later and Darnel St. Pierre made it 3-0 before the period was half-way over. After that, the team cruised to an 8-2 victory but Quakenbush said he still wasn’t entirely happy with the team’s play. “We didn’t play up to our potential,” he said. “We played down to their level although we scored some goals – we were a little bit disorganized.”

Captain/linesman Reid Blinkhorn. Alex Cooper/ Revelstoke Times Review

On Saturday, the team held a meeting before its game against division rivals Sicamous. Quakenbush said he wanted to get the message across that the team “battled consistently regardless of what the score was or regardless of where the opposition is in the standings.” The team responded by scoring four goals in the first period

and outshooting the Eagles 49-38 for a 7-1 win. The offence was led this weekend by the new line of Michael Roberts, Jordan Bledsoe and Marc Letourneau, who combined for seven goals and 10 assists over the weekend. Roberts had a hat-trick in Saturday’s game. “They just seemed to have some great chemistry right away, moved the puck well and played at the same speed, which seemed to create a lot of openings for them,” Quakenbush said. Saturday’s game also saw Braden Seyl play his first game with the team this season. The 6’3” Revelstoke native provided the defence with some additional size and picked up an assist in his home debut. “He’s a physical presence and he moves the puck well, he contributed at both ends of the ice. It’s going to be a definite step forward for us,” said Quakenbush. The team also resolved its goalie situation over the weekend, going with Conrad McMillian on Friday and Ethan Wood on Saturday. The third goalie Robert Kennedy was sent to a Junior A team. This weekend Revelstoke Grizzlies host the Penticton Lakers on Friday before heading to Chase to take on the winless Heat on Saturday. “Penticton is definitely a formidable foe,” Quakenbush said. “They’ve improved and they’re well coached and it should be a very good game.”

The last smash Revelstoke’s Ainslee Arthurs goes up for a smash in the finals of the the Junior Girl volleyball Last Spike tournament on Saturday. The Revelstoke Avalanche fell in the final in straight sets, 25-21 and 25-23. to the Princess Margaret Mustangs. The final set was a back-and-forth affair, with Revelstoke coming from behind several times, only to drop the final two points in the loss. The Junior Boys team did not fair quite as well, finishing in fourth place after losing a hard-fought three set match to Brocklehurst Middle School in the bronze medal game on Saturday. The tournament was the last event to be held in the old high school. Graham Construction, which is building the new schools, assumed control of the building right after the tournament finished on Saturday in order to prepare for demolition.

Policy prohibits extending water, but extending boundary is option ‘Water’ from p. 5 He also wondered if all of the owners in question were in favour of the changes, and wondered how much they would have to ante-up for the improvements. Director Parker said the regional district would not administer the system. “We’re not putting in a water supply,” Parker said. “We’re here

to ask a policy question,” she said. Council agreed they couldn’t authorize an exemption to the policy without further study, including all the issues voiced by the mayor. In the end, they voted to request staff to study legal, technical, policy and jurisdictional issues related to the request and report back to council with a timeline. Council discussed putting a deadline on the staff

report but backed away in the end, noting the complexity of the study required. “There can be no promises here at this time,” mayor Raven said. In an interview after the meeting, mayor Raven said the city had “no territorial plans” for the area, but they did respond to requests for inclusion into the city from property owners. Whatever happens, it would

be done in cooperation with the CSRD. He said the goal would be to do what’s best for the citizens and the environment in the long term. Resident Erich Unterberger coowns one of the affected properties. He attended the council meeting. “With continued development, they cannot protect that water,” he said in an interview. “The situation needs to be fixed.” For him, a long-term solution needs to be found, but it’s finding

the right balance that’s the challenge. He said property owners had different views. Those just living out their lives at their residences tend to prefer the status quo, while those interested in subdivision and development favour access to services such as water and sewer. Unfortunately, he said, they can get caught in the middle of a potentially divisive issue, brought on by a problem they didn’t create.

The magnitude of our loss cannot be put into words but I have been comforted and my faith strengthened because I have come to know that I am among a very special community of people. Though nothing will bring our lil Jake back, the enormous outpouring of love, hugs, support, condolence and the beautiful pictures from the kids that we received has been truly breathtaking and has helped lessen the pain. In expressing your sympathy and condolence to me, each of you said something over and over again. Out of nearly every person's mouth came the words, "If I can do anything for you, please let me know." So here is what I would ask… When you go home, I want you to tell somebody there that you love them and you appreciate them. And then live that out every day. That's what you can do for me. I feel so blessed and would like to thank the many, many people who showed their compassion during this dif¿cult loss. My heart goes out to the Revelstoke Fire¿ghters who helped my son; Dr. Alex Farrugia for always being there for me, Dr. Kim Veale, Dr. Cam Molder and the entire Queen Elizabeth Emergency Room team who aided my son; the emergency transport teams from Revelstoke, Kamloops and Vancouver; the doctors and nurses at Vancouver’s Children Hospital who fought to keep Jake with us; Matthew and Renee Carter and the entire Alliance Church family who provided a wonderful service and reception. My deepest gratitude to our many local businesses - Steve Hui, Andrew Moore, Dave Bennewith, and Cindy Holdener at Pharmasave for the beautiful funeral service pictures; Andre with Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Goldie at Paramjit’s Kitchen; the crew at Modern Bakery; the personnel at TD Canada Trust; and Krista at Sangha Bean. A special thanks to Barb from Monashee Lodge; Cindy from Mudusa’s Hair; Nel from Mountain Divas Landscaping; Deb from Deb’s Place and all of Jake’s friends at the schools of Mt. Begbie and Columbia Park and a very special heartwarming thanks to all those who contributed to Jake’s Memorial Fund. To all of you who graciously reached out to us with your thoughts and prayers, those who sent cards of faith, hope and encouragement, those who sent Àowers and plants, sent food, and those who visited us to give us the comfort that only good friends can give - I sincerely thank you for your genuine support during our time of grief. We ask that you continue to lift us up in your prayers. We also ask that you remember all others who are mourning the loss of loved ones, continue to pray for them, as we will be doing the same. We pray that God bless you, grant you peace, and keep you safe.

Thank you with all my heart, Helen Brum

Jake Gericke passed away on September 20, 2011 at the all too young age of nine. We miss him greatly and he will remain in our hearts now and forever. A Celebration of Life Service was held on September 24, 2011, at the Alliance Church of¿ciated by Pastor Matthew Carter. Jake was born in Toronto, Ontario on March 6, 2002. Jake was a happy, fun-loving boy who loved to laugh. His smile always greeted every morning and touched everyone around him. He wasn't the perfect little boy, just your usual, beautiful nine-year old boy full of character, using his shirts for superman capes and couches for ninja karate moves. We'll always remember his sweet face when he slept and his boundless energy for riding bikes and dirt jumping, playing soccer and snowboarding. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family by visiting Facebook at Jake Gericke Memorial Fund. A mother's message: I am with you still - I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled Àight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone I am with you still - in each new dawn. I am the song that will never end. I am the love of family and friend. I am the child who has come to rest In the arms of the Father who knows him best.
