Property owners around B.C. recently received their 2013 assessment notices, and in this area, there has been a modest decrease. The City of Rossland assessment roll decreased from $603 million last year to $588 million this year City of Trail, on the other hand, had a static assessment roll, staying at $1.1 billion. The villages of Fruitvale and Montrose also remained the same, at $194 million and $105 million, respectably. BC Assessment administers the assessments and provided examples of the real-world implications of the drop. For instance, if your property was valued at $250,000 for the 2012 assessment roll, then its assessed value The annual Avalanche Awareness Day, put on by local search and rescue, was held Saturday. Above, participants would drop to $243,000 for demonstrate a probe line. Arne Petryshen photo See Home on P.4

champions for the bid, put forth as a potential replacement for the mine tour that had to be closed a few years ago due to safety concerns. Granstrom said he heard the news of Mont Tremblant’s winning bid, last week, through media and had not been contacted by the Canada Ski Hall of Fame and Museum board. He said the Rossland proposal was well thought out for

this city. “We had to be very sure that what we presented was sustainable to Rossland,” he said, but added that the hall of fame board had some conditions that concerned the Rossland board. For instance the board would be under the supervision of the Ottawa board. “So we put a proposal out there that we thought was sustainable and could work in

Rossland,” he said. “They went with Mont Tremblant, which is interesting, because we (Rossland) also talked to Tremblant about some kind of east-west partnership. That wasn’t pursued by either side, but we did put that out there.” The mayor said that the museum in Rossland has many historic skis from the likes of Nancy Greene-Raine and Kerrin Lee-Gartner, and so a part-

He also noted that it’s interesting it didn’t go to Revelstoke. “Other than Rossland for history out west, that would be the place,” he said. “We weren’t told their final criteria.” Another concern they had was the logistics for inductions See Ski on P. 4

into the hall of fame. “That could have got really onerous for Rossland, because of the distances,” he said. “Ottawa is more the place you would do those kind of inductions. It was really expensive, they pay for the inductees to come there, travel, food… That was a concern too, but like I said we put a proposal together that was sustainable. Our

opinion on the task force was that you can’t put in a pie in the sky proposal, we have to put in what’s sustainable to Rossland.” Granstrom seemed to leave the possibility of the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum coming to Rossland if Mont Tremblant faltered. “Museums aren’t the easiest things to run. Our board here has a lot of experience; I think we’ve had a museum here since 1964,

2013’s roll. “Most homes in the municipalities of Trail, Rossland, Fruitvale, Montrose, and Warfield have decreased modestly from last year’s assessment roll,” said Dennis Hickson, deputy assessor at BC Assessment. The date of the valuation is July 1 of each year, so this year’s roll numbers come from the value of the property from July 1, 2012. “Property owners who feel that their property assessment does not reflect market value as of July 1, 2012 or see incorrect information on their notice should contact our office as indicated on their notice as soon as possible in January,” said Hickson. “If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our appraisers, they may submit a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) by January 31, for an independent review by a Property Assessment Review Panel,” added Hickson. The Property Assessment Review Panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and meet between February 1 and March 15 to hear formal complaints. The Nelson/Trail Assessment Office is located at 502 Victoria Street in Nelson. During the month of January, office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Property owners can contact BC Assessment toll-free at 1-866-valueBC (1-866-825-8322) or via www.bcassessment.ca Visit www.bcassessment.ca for more information about the 2013 Assessment roll including lists of 2013’s top most valuable residential properties across the province.

I believe,” he said. “So we have a very experienced board and they understand totally what it takes to make it work. Who knows what could happen.” As for what is next for the museum, Granstrom said the Gateway Project is moving forward, with a meeting later this month where it will put out a request for proposal and present their plan for the museum upgrades.

Future of education in SD20’s hands Neighbourhood of Learning pushes for K-12 in Rossland

Aerin Guy NOL

On Monday, Feb. 4, School District 20 will meet for the first reading of any potential bylaws related to any reconfigurations or closures of Rossland schools. The first motion that should be made by the board is to remove Option 3, K-7 at MacLean and the Annex, from consideration. Here’s why: MacLean as a K-7 school does not work now, and will not in the future. The district’s average functional capacity of 283 assumes the loss of all shared space (except the library) and the StrongStart program. The MacLean StrongStart is the busiest in the district, currently serving 70 families. In the Option 3 scenario, where does this important program go? Using every space available leaves no back up plan if a few more students show up in September than expected. MacLean cannot accommodate the anticipated future growth. Last year, for example, there were too many grade ones to fit in two divisions, so a third was created. This couldn’t

have happened if the school was a K-7 and completely full. All other SD20 elementary schools have spaces such as multipurpose rooms. MacLean does not have a multi-purpose room. MacLean is already a very small, crowded school with small hallways – the smallest amount of space per child in the district. In all the years of Planning for the Future, the Annex has never been considered as a usable space. The Annex, built in 1904, is an inefficient building that has had minimal maintenance. The $20,000 worth of renovations, as cited in Superintendent Greg Luterbach’s presentation on Tuesday, Jan. 15, will not turn it into a good educational space. If K-7 at MacLean/Annex is truly under consideration, as we have been led to believe it is, then the community is entitled to see a renovation plan with accurate costing. Yet without the Annex, several portables would need to be added on a schoolyard which is already the smallest in the district. MacLean was designed for 232 children, and cannot be expanded.

Rossland’s population increased by 8.5 per cent in the last census, and SD20’s Facilities Update projects student populations in Rossland increasing from 550 in 2013/14 to 745 in 2029/30. Under Option 3 (K-7 at MacLean) there would be no room for growth in the fastest growing community in the district. Since the Annex is inadequate and a sufficient number of portables won’t fit, would the youngest students in our community be bused to Webster? In other areas of the district, SD20 has committed to keeping the youngest children in their communities: K-7 in Warfield, Trail, Fruitvale and Castlegar. Here in Rossland we fight even for that assurance. If SD20 decides to bus our youngest students to Webster, they won’t fit there either. In the school district enrollment projections, both Glenmerry and Webster will be over their average functional capacity by years 2015 and 2016, respectively, and the maximum functional capacity by 2017 and 2019. These schools both already have portables. Where will the rest of the

Warfield and Trail students go? Will they be bused to Trail Middle School? Maybe Fruitvale? Where will the 100 alternate program students go? This is not planning for the future of our children’s education - it is planning for the next three years of budget cuts. There is no plan for how this will impact all the southend students and where they will go in three to five years. The district will need all the facilities it has, and definitely should not close RSS or they won’t have space for all the students in the south end of the district, if their projections are accurate. Mark in your calendar: Special School Board meeting, Tuesday, Feb. 12, 6:30 p.m. in the RSS gym. Again, let’s fill the room to the rafters. This will be the second reading of the Rossland school closure motion, where the Board will debate the options under consideration. It’s important for the community to attend to hear what is communicated. Aerin Guy is co-ordinator for the Neighbourhood of Learning commititee in Rossland.

Dog bylaw discussions revisited in council

Arne Petryshen Rossland News Editor

Downtown dogs and public smoking were once again brought up in council. The current animal control bylaw has been a contentious issue for the city, as it bans dogs from downtown. However, the bylaw hasn’t been easy for the city to enforce, with a limited budget for bylaw enforcement. Coun. Kathy Moore suggested council suspend the current bylaw for one year. “Put up dog (bag) dispensers and look into dog hitching areas for one year, and then see if it creates all the problems that people think will arise form this, or if it really isn’t that big of a deal,” Moore said. “I’ve been in so many communities where dogs are allowed and it just doesn’t seem to be the same angst as it is here.” After one year they could decide whether to repeal it completely or keep it. She also suggested that during that time council direct the bylaw officer to put more enforcement of the leash law. Coun. Jill Spearn took the devil’s advocate side, as she called it, and precluded by saying that she is a dog owner and likes dogs. “We have trails galore, both in the City of Rossland and around us. There’s a block and a half of our city where we say let’s have it dog free,” she said, adding that she wouldn’t mind if they had a leash law, but didn’t want to see people tying their dogs up downtown. However, she continued by saying that she thought it’s okay to not have dogs downtown. “This is why this law came in historically to our town,” she said, noting many people’s fear of dogs. She settled on one year leash law, but no tying up dogs. Coun. Kathy Wallace said she was in support of looking at revising the bylaw, since it is currently not working.

“Since council started this discussion about whether to review the bylaw or not, what I see downtown is people in direct non-compliance to the bylaw that still does exist,” Wallace said, noting that dogs tied to the newly planted trees downtown, as well as in front of Ferraro Foods, are a big problem. “It’s inconsiderate leaving your dog in the entrance of such a busy storefront,” she said. Wallace also wondered if they set up hitching posts for dogs, would the city be liable if they fought. She suggested that it was worthy of setting up a task force, as she wasn’t comfortable with the motion on the table. Coun. Jody Blomme liked the idea of allowing leashed dogs downtown. Coun. Tim Thatcher was open to a one-year trial, but was against allowing dogs to be tied. He said he would like to know what business owners think. Mayor Greg Granstrom however was opposed to the idea. “I’ve lived here a long time and I’ve had a dog every minute of the time I’ve lived here, and never once have I had the need to take my dog uptown shopping with me,” the mayor said. “I walk my dog three times a day, not one of those is downtown. Why we cannot have a section of town that says please don’t bring your dog in, I don’t understand why we can’t have that.” He said the bylaw is already being taken advantage of and the enforcement is lacking. So a leash bylaw would have a similar problem. He said that since the bylaw has come up for discussion, there’s been more dogs downtown then he’s ever seen. “By changing this bylaw without enforcement, we aren’t going to change anything,” Granstrom said. The motion ended in defeat, and the discussion was differed to a Committee of the Whole meeting. The meeting will likely not take place until the end of February.

Next up, was discussion on a smoking regulation bylaw. On this, Moore asked that they defer this discussion as well, so they could invite Trish Hill from Interior Health to do a presentation. “I think that it would be good for us all to look at these things before making a decision on this bylaw,” Moore said. Wallace noted that both the smoking and the dog discussions brought up the question of bylaw enforcement in the community. She asked for a staff report on what it thought of bylaw enforcement in the community. “We do have budget discussions coming up, it would be nice to have that information prior to budget discussions,” she said. Coun. Cary Fisher didn’t support the mo-

Trail will soon be solved through binding arbitration. The results of that arbitration will be known in the next few weeks. The dispute arose as a result of a disagreement on how much Rossland should pay for

tion. “I look at both these issues, and to me, they aren’t really big issues at all. I don’t see a problem with the dogs leashed or unleashed, we’re not enforcing it. I don’t think we’ve had any real issues around the smokers. I honestly in two years haven’t even smelled smoke downtown,” he said. “If you really look at it, what are we talking about? Why are we wasting time and money looking at something like that? Really search your soul and think. Have you had a problem with a dog on or off a leash? Have you had a problem with a smoker on a leash or off a leash?” The motion was carried. All but Fisher were for it.

Winter carnival time in Rossland

This weekend Rossland celebrates the 116th anniversary of the first Rossland Winter Carnival. That means that in 1897 this mountain kingdom decided to have a celebration at the coldest time of the year. It all began with just a few events that have now culminated in a tradition of snow events of all kinds. As well as bobsled and luge runs, there will be cultural events, like the official unveiling of the Olaus Jeldness statue downtown. The statue itself represents the Norwegian man whose love of ski jumping brought about the first carnival. This weekend also presents an opportunity to hear both a Norwegian and Canadian perspective, as on Sunday, Norwegian journalist Svein Saeter and historian Ron Shearer will have a presentations on just that. There is a delegation of Norwegians that arrived today to celebrate the unveiling and winter carnival. Tonight, or tomorrow morning, Canada AM will be filming from 2:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. Despite the early hour, it sounds like there will be no shortage of people downtown to take part in the live broadcast to the eastern Canadian audience. They could always use more people though, especially to participate in the Rail Jam at that time. What is always impressive is just the sheer number of great events that go on during the short span of four days. The posters around town are proof of that, as they are packed with line after line of events happening all over town. It’s looking like it will be We want to hear from you.

KAtrine Conroy Kootenay West MLA

I have read, watched and listened with interest the continuing discussions about education in this area. I have seen passionate and articulate citizens working together to find solutions and generating new ideas to support education in their communities. School board trustees have worked tirelessly under very difficult circumstances to try and find options and funding. School District staff have expressed their concern and shown their dedication to their students. Even with all of this hard work, the School District is still left with a large deficit, communities are worried about losing their schools and parents wonder what kind of education their child will receive. I have been asked what my views are on the education crisis in this area. Firstly I will say that I have the greatest respect for the elected school trustees who represent their constituents. It is they who have been given the very difficult task of running an education system in a rural area with limited funds. I support them in their work

and I am always willing to discuss any role I can take with the provincial government on their behalf. I understand that they are in a financial predicament. They are looking at a 1.75 million dollar shortfall and limited options on how to deal with it. I applaud the trustees in having two community meetings to talk to parents and students about how they think the problems can be addressed. With over 500 people in Rossland attending their community

has been discussing rural school funding issues for many years. My colleague, Robin Austin, is our critic for Education within the NDP Caucus and he has been discussing the very problems we are seeing in Kootenay West and holding the various education ministers responsible. I have explained to him our concerns in this constituency as well. He and I will be continuing to fight for rural schools once the legislature returns in February. The provincial government funding that school districts receive, and in particular, rural school districts, is simply not enough. Since 2001 when funding formulas changed in BC, rural school districts have had difficulties balancing their budget while also attending to community needs. Distances between communities, mountainous terrain, weather, bussing, declining enrollments have all made providing education in areas like the West Kootenays a challenge. I am committed to work with the School Board trustees and to work with my colleague, the Education critic, to fight for changes within the Legislature.

“Even with all of this hard work, the School District is still left with a large deficit.” meeting and almost 200 people in Castlegar there is no doubt that people are passionate and determined to fight for their schools. Whatever decisions the school trustees make in the next few weeks I think that it has been shown that all sides are committed to try and find solutions. As the provincial representative for this area I have been a part of an opposition caucus that

Letter: Arena fiasco could be movie

Remember some years ago when a movie was made in Rossland? “Miracle” it was called, about the famous hockey game where U.S. took on Russia, at the 1980 Olympics. The real game was played in Lake Placid in New York State. I can’t imagine why the filmmaker chose Rossland since it has no resemblance to Lake Placid whatsoever. I don’t recall if they even used our arena; I do remember they plastered artificial snow all over downtown. Imagine, fake snow in the Mountain Kingdom! The movie, hockey, the arena and all the goings on there lately made me think we should make another movie here. “Miracle 2’”wouldn’t work – although we can only hope. Maybe a Spy Mystery: undercover operator gains trust of organization, engages in illicit trading, cashes in for hundreds of thousands of dollars, escapes just as the authorities are closing in, and then, incredibly, re-appears in a

new guise working for a different agency in the same city. Maybe a bit far-fetched; who would believe a story like that? How about a good old Spaghetti Western? Old West mining town, citizens up in arms over high taxes and mysterious expenses going into the pockets of high rolling gambler, sheriff narrowly avoids lynching party, saved by ex-marshal who controls angry mob by force of personality. Outrage and anger still seethes beneath the surface, egged on by passionate editorials in local paper, fuelled by allegations of a former deputy obsessed with truth and righteousness, fanned by a veil of obfuscation at city hall; how will all this end? A gun fight at the OK Store? Still a bit over the top perhaps. What about a comedy then? Oh, come on now; how could any of this fascinating saga be even remotely amusing? The fantasy genre is popular these days, let’s try that. Tiny troubled town struggling to find its niche in the world sends envoys up to the high sacred mountain to

consult with the Holy Oracle on how to find the right path. A long and arduous journey for the party of pilgrims, but at length they arrive at the sacred cave. Oracles don’t usually have a lot to say, and this one is no exception: “Discover what can better be, Beyond the bounds that we can see.” But how shall we do that, they ask? “The wisdom of the wisest man, Is naught ‘gainst that of everyone, ” replies the Oracle, hobbling back into her cave They depart back down the mountain scratching their heads. Good setup for a sequel and might work for the NFB, but likely not Oscar material. Historical Drama, now there’s a possibility. It looks like ‘Lincoln’ is going to grab all the Academy Awards this year, with all the drama of civil war, leadership and assassination. Could be right down our street. Graham Kenyon Rossland

The Rossland Winter Carnival begins today and there are many events to take part in or enjoy from the sidelines. Later this evening, the Nelson and District Credit Union Variety Show is at the Rossland Secondary auditorium. The show officially starts at 7 p.m., but there is a pre-show at 6:30 p.m. with Richie Mann and the Golden City Fiddlers. “There’s such a wide range of entertainment,” said Lisa Henderson, who runs the show. “We have about 20 acts of all ages. There’s dance, musical theatre, soloists.” They held two night of auditions to get through all the potential acts. She also scouted some of the acts at events like the Joe Hill Coffeehouse. “We tried to squeeze in as many acts as possible, because it’s a variety show,” she said. A gymnastic group made up of grade 6 and 7 students will be one of the featured acts. Friday morning, Canada AM will be film-

ing on location from 2:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. The town will be bustling, with volunteer organizations about town, bobsleds on display and music going on. The Rail Jam will also be happening downtown. Deanne Stevens, from Tourism Rossland, is still hoping that more people come to show the Rossland spirit at those early hours. Stevens is also hoping for more snowboarders and skiers to get in on the early morning Rail Jam. It could be an opportunity to be featured on national TV. There will also be many retailers open for the event. At 1 p.m. on Friday, the King of the Mountain ski, telemark and snowboard race takes place on Red Mountain. The event challenges the racers to excel in all three disciplines. Learn to Luge also starts at that time on Red. Bring snowboots and a helmet and prepare for some speed. At 6:30 p.m. the 116th Carnival Parade is happening downtown. The parade begins at the corner of Columbia and Butte. After the parade, the Olaus Ice Palace is

featuring live music and DJs from 6-11 p.m. On Saturday, the firefighters will be putting on a pancake breakfast at the fire hall. Then at 9:30 a.m. the Sonny Samuelson Bobsled Race down Spokane Street begins. There are many other events going around town Saturday. On Sunday, the day starts with the Olaus Invitational Luge Race at Red Mountain. Participants must qualify in the Learn to Luge events on Friday and Saturday to participate. The John Heintz Relay Race begins at 1 p.m. It’s a race form the top of Red Mountain to the Lions Campground. In the afternoon, Norwegian journalist Svein Saeter and Rossland born historian Ron Shearer will talk about Olaus Jeldness from their two unique perspectives- Norwegian and North American. The presentation starts at 3 p.m. at the Prestige. For a more detailed itinerary, go to www. rosslandwintercarnival.com, or see schedules printed in the Rossland News and West Kootenay Advertiser.

taught probing techniques as well as proper deployment of the long probe. The next station was a beacon station. Avalanche beacons were buried earlier in the day so that participants could practice locating them, as well as becoming more familiar with the beacon and how they work. The third station was about snow profiles and shear tests. This gave people a chance to get a good idea of how snow builds up and causes avalanches.

The fourth station was on how to build a snow cave. At the end of the day there was a fun race, where teams went through each of the four stations. Among the participants were people new to avalanche hazards as well as experienced backcountry enthusiasts. Organizers said they had a great turnout for the event, adding that lots of people enjoyed the events and gained some knowledge and information.

Good turnout for avalanche awareness

History: Hop Lee’s burns in 1913 Maureen Brown Rossland Historical Museum

This way or that way...

We’ve got your news covered. rosslandnews.com

Compiled by the Rossland Historical Museum from the pages of the Rossland Miner. 100 Years Ago January 1913 Over 3000 Men on Kettle Valley Line At the present time the Kettle Valley Railway Co., has over 3000 men at work on the construction of their line between the Kootenays, the Okanagan, Similkameen and Hope. The present work entails an expenditure of just over a quarter of a million dollars a month and the employment of 140 draughtsmen and engineers. *** Two Women Call Hearne Husband

land his home. He was engaged here as a miner. He met wife No.2 in this city and they were married in Nelson. She insists, when Hearne gets out of jail, that she has the first call on his somewhat erratic affections. When Hearne arrived in Butte a relative of his learned of his second marriage and wrote to Mrs. Hearne, No. 1. At the same time Hearne was writing to wife No. 1, telling how lonesome he was with his single

The fire was well under way before an alarm was turned in, and the building was completely ablaze by the time the department arrived on the scene. Hop Lee’s laundry was gutted, and there was no insurance. The loss will be around $500 on building and clothing destroyed. *** 75 Years Ago January 1938 William Turner is Mayor Again

Wm. A. Turner, who did not officially announce his intention of contesting the mayoralty seat in the Rossland city council until Monday of this week, was elected by a majority of 16 votes over J.E. Gordon, 1937 Mayor, in yesterday’s election. After two years of retirement from civic affairs Mr. Turner again offered his services and was the choice of the electors in one of the closest fought battles in recent years. *** Heaviest Snowfall of Season Recorded Weather report for the last two or three days is good news for skiers, and very, very bad for the ancient and honorable order of snow shovellers. Twelve and one-half inches of snow have been recorded since Monday. The Rossland Historical Museum is open during Winter Carnival Weekend!

Hop Lee’s laundry was gutted, and there was no insurance. The loss will be around $500 on building and clothing.

Michael Hearne is in custody in Butte, charged with bigamy. The two wives met a few days since, wife No. 1 coming from Ireland. She is fifty years old and has three children which she left in Ireland to journey to Butte to expose her husband. Wife No. 2 is 20 years old and is pretty, and has a baby only three months old. Hearne left Ireland four years ago on a globe trotting trip, and, after journeying through numerous countries, he finally made Ross-

life. Hearne is a diamond drill man, and while employed in the Diamond mine, at Butte, he stuck a wire into his right hand and it became infected with blood poisoning. It may become necessary to amputate his arm. Pending trial, he is confined to a detention hospital. *** Fire in Hop Lee’s Chinese Laundry At 1:15 on Monday afternoon, a fire broke out in Hop Lee’s laundry on LeRoi Ave. It was a two-story frame structure.
