Century-old Rossland carnival medal nets $150 GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star Reporter

Part of an ongoing look at items of local interest being auctioned on eBay. As Rossland gets set to host its annual winter carnival, an artifact from the carnival of 99 years ago sold last week for $150 US. It’s a sterling silver medal awarded to members of the 1913 Rossland intermediate hockey team, which secured the championship that year. Prior to World War I, winners of the various hockey competitions at the carnival — senior men’s and women’s, junior and intermediate — were considered provincial champions. At least one matching medal has survived, and is in the personal collection of Spokane hockey historian Paul Delaney. It belonged to his grandfather, William Ehlers, who was on

the team. The seller was in Vancouver, the lone bidder from Nelson.

• A postcard showing buildings at Christina Lake with the pencilled-in caption “Beach’s store and cottage” sold recently for $28 US. According to Lincoln Sandner in Christina Lake: An Illustrated History, Bill Beach, an old bachelor, ran a store and office on LaValley Point, as well as a dance hall. During U.S. prohibition in the 1920s, he was also a thriving bootlegger.

“If I remember correctly, he was caught three times,” Sandner writes. “I think

the fines were $150 the first offense, $300 for the second, and $500 for the third offense. As Bill didn’t have $500, that time he went to jail. I think the sentence was for one year.” Not long after his imprisonment, Beach’s health began to fail, so he was moved to an old folks home, where he died a few years later. • A nice ca. 1910s real photo postcard showing a sternwheel-

er arriving at Arrowhead sold this month for $44 US. The caption erroneously reads “Arrowhead Lake, B.C.” instead of Upper Arrow Lake. Another copy of this postcard sold on eBay in 2005 for $45 US. In the foreground is the terminus of the railway that connected Arrowhead with Revelstoke. By the late 1950s, sternwheelers no longer plied the lake, and a decade later, Arrowhead itself was drowned out by the construction of the High Arrow Dam. The postcard’s seller was in Winnipeg, the buyer in Nelson. • Another Arrowhead item sold this month as well: a wooden coat hanger advertising the firm of McGaghran & Johnston, which went for $31 US. The Vernon seller also sold a coat hanger from Nelson merchant tailor J. Smallwood for $15 US.

LOOK AT THE

News Transit merger in works GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star Reporter

The two local regional districts are moving toward an amalgamated transit system by April 2013 that could see one fleet, one fare schedule, and one staff pool. The Regional District of Central Kootenay's bus system is a $3 million per year service that requires modifications to remain viable, administrator Jim Gustafson wrote in a memo to the board. "The current service arrangement has worked well for many years and public tran-

sit is available on a limited basis throughout much of the West Kootenay," he said. "Staff is suggesting we need to push the service towards greater sustainability." He says they should look at a new governing and operating model, as well as a 10year fleet replacement program. "Arguably, together local government is operating a bus company as much as a transit system," Gustafson wrote. "Transit links between Balfour and Trail are extensive and cover a 100 km span." However, a "more effective organiza-

tion" that uses a single bus fleet and rate card, and possibly one taxation source "may prove the difference between a struggling service and a new sustainable service for the future." Local governments across the RDCK and Regional District of Kootenay Boundary need to work together and with BC Transit on the new model, he said. Regionalized transit was tentatively endorsed about a year and a half ago, and the RDCK board gave its blessing last week to further exploring the concept.

January 27, 2012

Michael Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor

Week

TIP OF THE WEEK: Just hours after the New Moon in Aquarius, Mars turned retrograde in Virgo. Mars M entered Virgo back in mid November and ent retrograde it will remain there until early July. due to iit turning ing retrogr Of it itself, Mars Astrology is symbolic action and self-expression. The 1st planet outside the elf, lf M arrs in orbit of our own planet and the ruler of Aries (the 1st sign of the Zodiac), Mars symbolizes action upon the purpose of the Sun, the or thinking and perceptions of Mercury, the desires and wants of Venus, the emotional feelings and needs of the Moon and the practical needs and desires of life on Earth. Mars can most basically be interpreted as oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style and mode of self-expression. n Mars rretrograde in Virgo often stirs conďŹ&#x201A;icts in personal relationships. The projection of expectations and high ideals leading to disappointments in some of the main issues. This can make people hard on others and then on them selves by reaction. At best, Mars retrograde can be interpreted others are s as having a more spiritual and less material ambition. In other words, achieving oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s material goals and satisfying desires as is generally the case when Mars iis s Direct is reversed or the urge and passion is diverted. Until spiritual goals are met, outer worldly ambitions will be set aside. (Learn in my Newsletter, sign-up is free!) (Learn More about Mars Retrograde Re

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

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

Many new realizations are coming your way now and this trend will continue. Heart opening experiences are featured. These may have mystical leanings or at least activate feelings of compassion for others. Meanwhile, your ambitions are on the rise. Circumstances are pushing you to be more aware, committed and responsible.

An exciting wave of creativity is washing in. This will inspire you to make changes in who you relate with and how. Relationships will be scrutinized for their worth. You may not act on your feelings right away, at least not outwardly. This is a good time to do inner work to clear subconscious angers, fears and blocks, especially if these are blocking intimacy.

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

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

Your career and/or public life are getting some extra attention. It is possible that you have made some sacriďŹ ces in this respect and you are ready to cash in. Loving friends are coming forward, as if suddenly. This stands to be an expansive and exciting time for you. Yet, you may still feel green and realize that you have a lot to learn.

Creative projects in the safety of your home spell happiness now. You may be in an inventive mood. Inspirations and/or the need to re-invent yourself some how, or to make changes in your lifestyle are likely. Your social life is poised to expand. You should already see the signs. Make the most of this window of opportunity.

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

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

Your higher mind is being activated. Visions of the future are streaming through your mind. Yet, you are not out of the dark entirely yet. Continued inner work to feel faithful about things is probably necessary. Patience with people and situations remains important. Circumstances are directing you to express compassion and selďŹ&#x201A;ess love.

A busy cycle is now underway. With a lot of people to see and places to go you stand to cover a lot of ground. Yet, you may also have unďŹ nished business to attend to, which is a good idea. This may include attending to you health. Desires to remain close to home are also strong. Perhaps you can invite people to your home to strike the balance.

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

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

Probing some of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeper mysteries continues as a central theme. You want answers like never before! Meanwhile, increasing the scope and quality of your connections with others feels right. You may still have some deep lingering fears you must contend with. Imagine that in doing so you will claim hidden gifts and powers, because you will!

Gathering ideas, plans and prospects is on your mind. You want to feel secure that you have everything you need for success. Flirting with new possibilities can include projects as well as people. Yet, you also want freedom or at least are in a very independent mood. Making key investments is part of the plot because you want measurable returns.

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; FEB 19) LEO (JUL 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; AUG 23) Exciting relationships activations are yours to enjoy now. The exchange of ideas feels profound and proliďŹ c. Sharing higher minded truths will bring rewards. Your desires are running deep these days and the passion is there, yet your drive may not be equal to these. Give more time to achieve your goals; slow down yet persevere.

You are in a pioneering mood and may even feel a bit punchy and aggressive. Many new perceptions are stimulating your thought processes. Getting clear on what are your own genuine needs verses those of others is important now. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you could feel confused and moody or reactive and thus alienate others. Direct your energies to realize your ideals.

PISCES (FEB 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAR 20) VIRGO (AUG 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; SEP 22) Activating changes in your daily routine is now in focus. You want to feel clear in your mind and energetic and so are taking measures to succeed. You may suddenly ďŹ nd yourself changing your diet. Deep feelings of love for signiďŹ cant others are being stimulated. Yet, give them room too be themselves and do not lean either.

Getting things done behind the scenes is extra important now. This is a good time to rest and retreat as well. Balancing both urges can mean accepting fewer invitations or being mindful not to escape into the television or internetâ&#x20AC;Ś. Get clear on what you want to achieve and pace yourself. The tendency to scatter your energies remains high so be deliberate.

Unsung heroes crucial for 2012 Rail Trail 200 International Sled Dog Race CASSANDRA CHIN Grand Forks Reporter

As mushers and dogs plowed through the 2012 Rail Trail 200 International Sled Dog Race course, the unsung heroes were the volunteers and their efforts to put the event together. Bruce Sims, a member of the board and route co-ordinator, felt this year’s event was fairly successful. “It’s a lot easier this year than in our first year,” he said. “There were alterations to

the trail since last year. The first half of it was basically the same trail as last year but we re-did the western side of it, so the trip back was different.” Sims noted there still Bruce needs to be tor more modifications, but there are many factors including landowners to take into account. “We’re still looking for the perfect trail

because we haven’t found it yet,” Sims stated. “We’re going to let this one sink in for a while before we think about next

year.” Rail Trail 200 focuses to highlight the Boundary’s history of former train and logging routes by following old roads and tracks, beginning in Grand Forks and concluding in Greenwood. This year, there were five teams registered for the 200-mile (322 km) race and two teams for the 100mile (161 km) race. Clearwater, BC resident Steve Mullen won the 200-mile race with 12 dogs and

Jillian Taylor from Rocky Mountain

House, Alta. was the first to ever complete

the 100-mile race with eight dogs.
