News Rescued skiers safe after night on Red Mountain but had not returned by evening, and their vehicle was still in the parking lot. Rossland Search & Rescue was mobilized and searched until 2 a.m. without locating the couple. The search was continued the next morning, with the assistance of both South Columbia and Castlegar Search & Rescue units, as well as a heli-

On January 14, 2012 at 8:30 p.m., Trail & Greater District RCMP received a report of two area residents, a man and woman in their mid 50’s, missing from the Red Mountain Ski Hill area near Rossland. They were last seen around noon that date at the ski hill

copter from Highland Helicopters. Approximately 40 volunteers turned out. At around noon on January 15, the couple was located in the Esling Creek drainage area, west of Red Mountain and leading to Big Sheep Creek. Upon hearing the helicopter, they made their way to an open area and stamped out “HELP” in the snow,

which was spotted by the helicopter crew. Search & Rescue members were then flown to their location and the couple were assisted to a location where they could board the helicopter. As a result of their ordeal, the couple was cold, tired and hungry but otherwise in good condition. They were not equipped to spend

the night outdoors and had not been able to build a fire, so they kept active through the night to prevent hypothermia. They advised that while skiing, they were caught in sudden white-out conditions and as a result became lost. -Rob Hawton, Sgt. NCO i/c Trail & Greater District RCMP (250) 364-2566

Residents try compost project Grand Forks Brief The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) has started up a pilot project in the Valmar area of Grand Forks that will see the collection of food scraps. “We know from our composition studies that about 40 per cent of the present garbage that is put out in garbage bags is food scraps and that’s the

material we’re targeting with this collection program,” said RDKB Solid Waste Program Co-ordinator Tim Dueck. Green bins and beige buckets have been distributed to people in Valmar for food-related waste such as baked goods (breads and cookies), muffin and cupcake paper, moldy cheese, rinds and peelings, egg shells, fruit pits and seeds.

Pentaèdre, a unique ensemble in the Canadian landscape, presents wind music that crosses cultures and continents, and features refined classical works by Mozart and comedic opera by Rossini through to the warm and exotic ambiances of Latin American music by Riviera. It’s music to sooth the soul! The Boundary District Arts Council and the Performance Series presents this outstanding ensemble on Thursday, January 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Grand Forks Secondary School Auditorium – relaxing and perfect for a cold winter’s night! The Quebec based Pentaèdre, like the geometric figure from which it takes its name, consists of five musicians who have been widely recognized for the talent, technique, precision and color they bring to their performances. Danièle Bourget (flute), Norman Forget (oboe), Martin Carpentier (clarinet), Mathieu Lussier (bassoon) and LouisPhilippe Marsolais

(horn and artistic director) each bring a particular timbre to an overall sound which is unique, rich and homogenous the distinctive feature of the ensemble. Since its creation in 1985, Pentaèdre, which is regularly broadcast on CBC Radio, has focused on the discovery of chamber music repertoires in the tradition of music for winds. Passionate chamber musicians, the members of the group have explored the classic repertoire for wind quintet as much as orchestral works and transcriptions, and include diverse, original and lesser known works. The ensemble, which has recorded five CD to date, is constantly expanding its repertoire and adds about a dozen new works to its credit each season, including premieres (25 since its inception), and commissions to young Canadian composers such as Ana Sokolovic, Denis Gougeon and Denis Dion. Pentaèdre has toured several times within Canada and the U.S. for concerts at the Banff Centre

for the Arts, the Orford Arts Festival, the National Gallery in Ottawa and Carnegie Hall in New York, along with numerous shows for young audiences. In Europe, highlights include the Strasbourg Festival Musical and the Baiedes-Chaleurs Festival, and concerts in Belgium, Germany and Israel of a chamber version of Schubert’s Winterreise (by Normand Forget) with famous tenor Christoph Prégardien; the stage version première of John Metcalf ’s opera A Chair in Love at Cardiff and Swansea Opera Houses; L’amour est un opéra muet (from Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte) with the mime company Omnibus. Come shake away the winter blues and wrap up in a soft blanket of music, the kind that’s perfect for a gentle evening beside a warm fire. Advance Tickets: at Thistle Pot Gifts and Gallery 2; Adults $18, Senior $16, Youth $5, Family $45. Tickets at the door: Adults $20, Senior $18, Youth $7, Family $50. -Boundary District Arts Council

A menu from the SS Slocan sold for $53 US this month, despite a badly creased corner, hole, and measurements of some sort pencilled on the back. It bears a picture of the elegant CPR sternwheeler that plied Slocan Lake from 1897 to 1928, but it’s clear the menu dates from World War I. At that time the ship travelled Tuesdays and Fridays. Onboard fare included fillet of halibut, roast mutton, and rice custard pudding. At the bottom in small print is a directive from the food controller, asking that “all persons ordering food consider the needs of Great Britain and her Allies and their armies in the matter of wheat, beef, and bacon, and that the Public do everything in its power to add to the available supply of these articles for export by eating as possible of them.â€? Serving bacon and beef on Tuesdays and Fridays was prohibited, the note went on, and while mutton and poultry were allowed, the CPR was making a point of serving eggs, vegetables, and fruits in place of meats. The seller was in Vernon, the buyer in Nelson. • Three Chinese artifacts from Nelson sold together last week for $78 US. They included an envelope from the LD Cafe at 479 Baker St.

Also known by several other names — including the New Star, Ken’s Cafe, Seven Seasons, Amanda’s, and latterly the Redfish Grill — this space was home to a Chinese restaurant for close to a century until it burned in July 2010. The unused envelope advertised “High Class Restaurant & Rooms at Moderate Rates. Soda Fountain & Candy.� Also part of the lot was a wooden stamp for Hing Wah of 624 Front Street and a wooden prescription

box from Smythe’s Pharmacy for Mr. Gee Wing. The auction, which had a starting price of $50, drew five bids. The Vernon seller was the same as in the previous auction, while the buyer was a different one from Nelson. • Two nice Grand Forks postcards drew healthy bids last week. Both were produced by the BC Printing and Lithograph Co. Ltd. probably in the 1920s or ‘30s. The first, showing First Street, went for

$79 Cdn. The second, showing Winnipeg Ave. and the United Church, went for $37 Cdn. The seller was in Victoria, the buyer of both in Surrey. • Another interesting Grand Forks item that sold in December was a brass or copper watch fob with a scene of a hunter and dog on one side and inscription “Compliments/Russell Hotel/ F.W. Russell/Prop./ Grand Forks, B.C.â€? on the other. It went for $32 US.

Prime land in Waneta recently purchased by Trail from the regional district will soon provide further economic opportunity to one of the city’s largest businesses. AM Ford Sales Ltd. plans on relocating its business to newly consolidated land beside Waneta Plaza to make use of a larger property and to serve its expanding database and market shares. The company already leases a portion of this property, which used to house a McDonald’s, for AM Ford Plus. “We’ve always been tight for room and basically we plan on building a new LEED Millennium building,” said owner Dan Ashman, who added details are to come. “Location, location location” has driven Ashman to the high-

way property that is in a convenient place for customers – next to the mall – and would reduce operational costs for the soon-tobe centralized business. Ashman said plans for the company’s current main location in Glenmerry are being worked out but said he’s already had interest from an international auto dealership and potential strip mall owner. “We’ve been working on this for four years, but got held up in 2008 because of the biggest recession in the last 70 years,” he said. “But fortunately because of the rebound of the auto industry and in particular the rebound of the Ford Motor Company, it’s now a very viable option.” After the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary sold 1.32 acres of “non-essential” land in front of the sewage treatment

plant to the City of Trail for $250,000 last year, the city is now turning a profit. This land will be consolidated with an adjacent property owned by the city, which intends to dispose of the approximate four acres of total land to AM Ford Sales Ltd. for $945,000. The city entered into a lease and purchase agreement with AM Ford for the land it currently holds on Highway 3B back in 2007. Last year the regional district agreed to sell some of its land to facilitate the commercial development of AM Ford, which has been in business since 1985. “Back in the spring, the details of the development weren’t released as we were in continuing negotiations with AM Ford for the sale of the property,” explained city administrator

Michelle McIsaac. When notice was first released of the transaction between the city and the regional district, former Trail councillor Norm Gabana voiced his concerns that if the property is developed on a large scale, construction could pose risk of contaminating Bear Creek Well. The well has been in operation since 1981 and pumps water from an aquifer to Glenmerry, Waneta, and Green Gables reservoirs that service Shavers Bench, Miral

Heights, Glenmerry and Waneta, about one-third of Trail’s water demands. A ground water protection plan report nearing completion will include all potential contamination concerns in the vicinity of the well/aquifer and will identify strategies for managing such concerns, noted McIsaac. “The proposed development, being a car dealership, is no different than the current operations at the property,” she added.

“Take It ToThe Top!”

most of its study for the City of Trail into the finance, governance and service delivery impacts associated with including portions of Area A into city limits, Urban Systems Ltd. has found that property taxes would go down for these property owners but a large portion of funding to Area A would be lost. The most significant issue is the potential loss of $395,000 in revenue to the Beaver Valley Parks and Recreation Function, a service between Fruitvale, Montrose and Area A that was re-established after regional recreation dissolved in 2009. Trail administrator David Perehudoff said the city could consider developing a proposal to mitigate the impact on the regional service should property owners be interested in moving forward. Trail would benefit from nearly $77 million of assessment base from the Trail Airport, the Columbia Gardens Industrial Park, the Waneta Dam and the adjacent lands extending from the current city boundary to the Waneta border, the report indicates.

and private or government pension plans. According to Statistics Canada, approximately two thirds of working Canadians don’t have any pension plan to begin with and one third of them don’t own a house. But just about everybody over the age of 65 can expect to enjoy some form of government pension, whether it’s the Canada or Quebec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) and/ or the Old Age Security (OAS).

The CPP is often the first pension that people collect and the one they understand the least. It’s financed through mandatory contributions from employers, employees and the self-employed — as well as investment income from the $152.3 billion CPP Investment Board. Employers and employees make equal contributions (selfemployed workers pay both ends) based on a maximum amount of pensionable earnings ($50,100, in 2012), adjusted annually. The amount you’ll eventually receive depends on your time in the plan and your career earnings going back to Jan. 1, 1966, or when you reached age 18, whichever was later. The program is designed to replace about 25 per cent of your earnings while

Old Age Security To qualify for OAS, which is funded out of general government revenues, you have to be over 65 and have lived in Canada for a minimum of 10 years after the age of 18. Like CPP, you’ll be taxed on the amount you receive. OAS is also indexed to inflation and the government sets the amount payable four times a year based on the cost of living. The current maximum payment is $540 a month – however, the average monthly payment is around $508 per month or $6,096 per year. While that’s the amount you’re technically entitled to, the government also looks at how much you earn from other pensions and investments. If you earn too

much, your OAS benefit will be reduced. If you earn too little, your benefit could be topped up under other benefit programs. The OAS clawback starts when your income reaches $69,562 and your entire OAS benefit disappears if you earn more than $112,772 a year. Dividend income can be an issue here as it increases a retiree’s taxable income and makes the threshold easy to cross. Less than three per cent of Canadians have the whole thing clawed back though, so virtually everyone can expect to earn something from OAS. Income supplements The Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) is designed to provide low-income Canadians with some additional funds. You must apply for them each year. They’re not taxed, but must be claimed on your tax return. Like OAS, these supplements are geared to your income and are subject to clawbacks. The amount you receive depends on a variety of scenarios, such as whether you’re single or have a partner, and whether they also collect CPP or the Allowance. For a single person, the maximum payment available is $732

a month or $8,784 annually, provided your income is less than $16,368. However, the average person receives GIS payments of closer to $491 a month. Be sure to apply early. With an aging population, there are more and more people lining up to receive their pensions. For CPP and QPP, you should apply nine months before you retire, providing you’re 59 years old. You must be age 65 or older and a Canadian citizen or legal resident to receive OAS or GIS. You don’t have to be still living in Canada, but you do have to prove you lived here a certain number of years after age 18. Again, start early in the year you’ll turn 65. There isn’t a clear cut answer as to when you should apply for your CPP. It is vital that you speak with your financial planner to review your particular situation to determine what is the best strategy for you.

would have received at 65, rather than the 30 per cent penalty incurred in the past. These new rules will be phased in over a five-year period from 2012 to 2016. This means that in 2012 the initial penalty for taking CPP early will actually be 6.24 per cent annually. You will also be required to continue making contributions to the plan if you decide to keep working, although the amount of your pension will be increased to reflect these additional contributions.

you paid into the plan with CPP setting a maximum monthly benefit each year. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still working, you should be receiving periodic statements from CPP which outline the estimated monthly pension youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll receive once you hit 65. The maximum annual payment for 2012 is about $986.67 a month, all of which is indexed to inflation. Most people however, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earn anywhere near that. In fact, the average monthly CPP payment in 2011 was $512 a month, all of which is taxable, of course. It has been common place for many retirees to collect their CPP as early as age 60. In the past, if you applied to receive your CPP benefit on your 60th birthday, you would lose .50 per cent of the monthly benefit for each month prior to your age 65 or 6 per cent per year. This would end up reducing the 60 year old retireeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit by up to 30 per cent of what they could have received had they waited to collect at age 65. Starting in 2012, the early-retirement discount is going to gradually increase to 7.2 per cent a year or .60 per month. If you apply for CPP on your 60th birthday it will ultimately mean losing up to 42 per cent of the amount you

“My Inner Child” to make debut at the VISAC Gallery TIMOTHY SCHAFER Advertiser Reporter

Our experiences shape our lives. And the newest show at the VISAC Gallery in Trail is all to do with experiences, in particular the earliest childhood experiences of Kim O’Brien. The Nelson-based fibre artist is revealing many of those experiences in her

new show, My Inner Child, that opens at the gallery Saturday, Jan. 21. The show is the first solo stint in Trail for O’Brien. “Over the past year I have loved making objects that brought me in touch with my earliest childhood experiences,” she said. “By weaving my experiences into the past lives of others, past and present

come together, and I adore the new meanings that are created.” She uses vintage material because it connects her to the past and to all of the bygone stories that lie in the various scraps of fabric or accessories. Her imaginative and fantastical felt wool creations allow her to experience the joy of its texture and the endless pos-

The Swingsations are still swinging! Here in the Kootenays, it’s common to hear of folks heading off to Spokane or Kelowna, Calgary or Vancouver to taste the “good life”. Theatre, concerts, restaurants, special events. But there is a hidden treasure right here amongst us that is good enough to tempt the city folks to visit US!

Just try to find live music to dance to in the city, and you’ll find that most of the bands have faded away. The Kootenays however, have a firstclass dance band, called the Swingsations, that plays the same music as the great dance bands, like Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Guy Lombardo, Glenn Miller to name a few. Several times a year this talented

bunch of high-class musicians strut their stuff and play all the most inspiring music for an evening of dancing and listening pleasure. This band was once known as the Novatones, and the name changed to Swingsations under the leadership of band leader Clark White. This past fall they played for the RCMP Regimental Ball, and you may know them from their gigs at Choco-

late Jazz and other special occasions. Their music includes a little something for everyone, with swing, jazz, rock, polkas, waltz, rhumbas, and tangos - all played masterfully. Many numbers are sung beautifully by our vocalist and some of the band musicians take time from their instruments to find their way to the microphone. Dancers range from past champions to diehard enthusiasts, to complete beginners, and some

folks don’t dance at all, and come just to listen to the band and enjoy an evening with friends. People come from Grand Forks and even Kaslo to share this hidden gem.

New Fortis rates kick in NELSON STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

FortisBC customers will see adjustments to their power bills this month. The power company has received approval for a 1.5 per cent interim rate increase, and at the same time is “rebalancing” rates for each customer group. What this means is that small businesses will get a two per cent reduction, commercial customers a 7.8 per cent reduction, and major industry a 6.8 per cent reduction. Residential, lighting, and wholesale

customers rates are rising 2.5 per cent. There’s no change for irrigation customers. The juggling is the result of an analysis “done periodically to ensure rates are fair and equitable between customer groups and that no one customer class is subsidizing another,” vice-president Tom Loski said in a news release. The adjustments are combined with a 1.5 per cent “interim and refundable” rate increase the company says will allow it to “make safety and reliability investments in the electric system and build infrastructure.”

These involve six face-to-face regional sessions that will be presented starting in September 2011 to April 2012. Each Semester includes a one and half day face-toface learning event led by a team of experts with specialized knowledge in the field of non-profit arts and culture. As well, local experts will be invited to participate as part of the content team. The content of each session will be customized based on the challenges and issues

identified by participants in each region. In addition to being a learning event, participants will establish new goals and begin to develop plans that will contribute to their organization’s sustainability. As part of the Sustainability Semester, participants will: • Consider what a sustainable non-profit arts or cultural organization looks like; • Explore why good governance, solid planning and skillful management are important to the sustainability of any organization; • Learn how to identify where they are at in terms of their lifecycle; • Improve practices in the areas of financial management, re-

porting, planning and proposal writing; • Learn how to effectively communicate goals; • Learn about what ‘unwritten’ relevant resources or partners may exist in their local communities and/ or regions; Following the faceto-face opportunities, the content team will provide ongoing support through oneon-one coaching, an on-line forum and follow-up conference calls. Through this process, organizations will begin to address their challenges, and improve their planning to meet their new goals. Throughout the Semester, participants will have exclusive access to training and resource materials including toolkits, tem-

Horoscope

for the e

Week

January 20, 2012

Michael O’Connor

TIP OF THE WEEK: Happy New Year Water Dragon! Technically, it is the exact moment of the New Moon in Aq Aquarius every year which parallels with the countdown just prior to midnight where December 31st yields to January 1st. There is a little less drama in the New Moon focus as it is the dark moon phase so the overall energy levels are lowered. Yet, there are other kinds of magic at play. The simple fact that the 2nd New Moon after Winter Solstice is given such a high honor as to begin Chinese New Year is illustrative of the respect given to natural cycles. Given the environmental crisis on our planet precipitated by the advances of science and industrialization, it seems like a good n idea tha that we re-assert our priorities whereby we recognize that nature makes a much better friend than enemy. Assuming that the cycles of nature are technological will and might is an attitude and belief that threatens us all. The Dragon is said to tempt the fates. How apt that it should coincide beneath our te with the much prophesied 2012. Stay tuned for more details and insights to come.

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20)

LIBRA (SEP 22 – OCT 22)

A stimulation of friendships and other social activities is dawning. You may feel rebellious, however. Ironically, a preference for work over play may be at issue. Yet, you also yearn to retreat or escape somehow. Reconciling these conflicting urges is the challenge. Aim for quality time over quantity on all fronts to have it all!

A creative wave of inspiration is washing in on your shores now. It will push you to make key changes in the relationship you have with yourself. Learning to love your self and give to yourself more fully is the goal. The consequences of this may produce ironic results, however. For example, you may be guided to give more to “your” relationships with others.

TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21)

SCORPIO (OCT 22 – NOV 21)

The time to assert your position to gain some earned or at least desired recognition has arrived. Important meetings behind the scenes are likely. Whether these are with your own source, or outer power players, or both depends on the specifics of your destiny. Either way, you are eager to take determined and strategic measures to direct the action in your favour.

Are you ready for change on the home front and/or at core levels? Well, ready or not…! These may be just the kind you want and/or need. Ideally you will respond to any conflicts with others to spur you on. Yet, the tendency to react aggressively is also high and this trend will continue. Make extra efforts to be open minded and replace suspicion with communication.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUN 21)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 – DEC 21)

Many new realizations and visions of the future are being stimulated and this trend will continue. Seeing who you are and where you are headed is running through your mind. Somehow, you may sense that you have some important work to do. Attending to certain sobering realities is part of the plot. For the sake of security you are willing to do the work, though you may not truly want to.

Initiating a new round of communications will become obvious this week. Your focus will be sober and pragmatic, yet diplomatic. Creating more beauty in your home environment may be a core motivation. This can be as basic as a big clean-up. If you focus this way and follow through you are likely to feel inspired.

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 19) CANCER (JUN 21 – JUL 22) Considering some of the deeper mysteries of life is an emerging trend. Thoughts and questions about sex, death or taxes, or perhaps what is the deeper purpose of your life, or the meaning of life in general… are lingering. Exchanging thoughts and ideas with others will prove satisfying, as long as you are open to new ideas verses solely defending existing beliefs. Honour the process.

Innovative designs to establish a new momentum and/or a new overall mode of expression will soon become apparent. You want to be heard and heeded. You will be open to exchanges of ideas and visions and may feel impatient and/or depressed where these are not forthcoming. Your core motivation is to experience new levels of freedom.

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 – FEB 19) LEO (JUL 22 – AUG 23) Searching for deeper truths and new realizations about the actual states and realities of you’re your important relationships is on the rise. You are committed to do the work to make some improvements. Do be willing to negotiate. Yet, avoid trying to change others. Instead, review how you can better yourself. Be patient yet sure by taking actual steps backed by a plan.

The New Moon in your sign indicates an activation of your overall mode of expression. The stimulation of new perceptions is likely. Desires to acquire practical tools that can make a real difference are motivating you. Yet, there is reason to believe that you are feeling a little lost and confused as well and feel the need for guidance.

PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20) VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 22) Making improvements and changes in your daily routine and overall lifestyle is an emerging theme. This will lead you to look deeper at yourself and others than usual. At worst you will try to defend your position. At best, you will decipher, outline and visualize the solutions required, then take action. By open to a variety of solutions, seek support, yet do not lean.

The urge to retreat and even escape may feel especially strong starting this week. Yet, one can also be productive behind the scenes and you will want to be. This will include opening your mind to new incoming intuitions and increasing your scope of communications somehow. Extra care to be trusting is advised, especially in your closest relationships.
