ten by yourself preferably. “It can be other poetry that has been written that is good written poetry out there, but they consider in the final marks if it’s original or not. All my poems are original,” she said. The presentations were done in a dinner theatre where performers are in front of a full audience, Gunnarson pointed out. “Upstairs, downstairs, the balcony,” she said.

“Each day you have a different panel of judges so you never know who will be in the panel. They’re all professional performers themselves.” She added the two other finalists were ladies from Alberta. Gunnarson has been writing poetry since she was a child but recalled that most of it was dark during that time of her life. Since then, she’s moved on to cowboy poetry. “I’ve been writing

cowboy poetry for probably the last five years,” Gunnarson stated. “I actually have a passion for writing about the gold rush era and being with the can-can troupe, I fit in very well with that.” With the prize money, Gunnarson plans to create a publication of her poetry sometime this year. As the winner of this year’s contest, Gunnarson has been invited back as a paid performer on the main stage next year.

Grand Forks poet Jill Gunnarson won the 2012 Rising Star award at the 16th annual Kamloops Cowboy Festival, hosted by the B.C. Cowboy Heritage Society on March 11. The Rising Star competition, sponsored by CJKC Country 103, is for emerging western entertainers for all ages. Participants for the competition can be entertainers, singers, musicians or poets, as long as the material is western or cowboy. Gunnarson originally heard about the competition through the Les Folles Jambettes, the local Grand Forks and Christina Lake can-can dance troupe. “I don’t know if I had any expectations,” she laughed. “But it was exciting.” Poets from across Canada and the United States submit their applications to the competition where six are chosen to enter the semifinals. Out of the six semifinalists, a panel of judges chooses three finalists. In the finals, there was a 12-minute presentation in which Gunnarson presented seven poems during that time frame. “It all has to be memorized and writ-

Reaction to the approval of Jumbo has been mixed — entities such as the British Columbia Chamber of Commerce applaud it, while groups like the environmental organization Wildsight deplore it — but what about the ski industry itself?

David Lynn, president and CEO of the Canada West Ski Areas Association, says it’s really a mixed feeling in the industry. “I think everyone can empathize with the developer and how long the process has dragged on,” Lynn said. “Making a decision one way or the other was the right thing to do. On

principle, the industry supports a free market. But our concern is with excess capacity. “In terms of destination resorts, resorts that attract tourists themselves, which have accommodation on mountain, there are 13 in the province of British Columbia. There is significant excess capacity and I think some people at these resorts would question increasing that capacity.” It’s an argument that has been raised before in the ongoing Jumbo debate. Late last year the Ktunaxa Nation, which opposes the development, released an economic report which in part argued the resort would pull skiers away from other resorts in B.C. and Canada while bringing few new skiers into the area. But locally, Panorama Mountain Village CEO Rick Jensen says the mega resort would help his hill more than it would hinder. “Panorama is a bit of an unknown to a lot of the ski world,” Jensen said. “With Jumbo, it will be a very highly recognized mountain and we will get a lot of awareness from that, which will really improve skier visits to Panorama. I think we will also see a bit of cannibalization of skier visits, but I think the positives far outweigh that as far

as the resort goes.” In Rossland, Red Mountain Resort marketing manager Mika Hakkola takes a similar view. “From a skiing stand point, I think it just puts British Columbia more on the map in terms of being a ski destination,” he said. “Whether we think it will affect us, no one knows that at this point.” Lynn says time will tell if the more is better philosophy holds true — if a Jumbo resort could attract skiers new to the province, this area in particular. “It depends how unique the new offering is,” he said. “Glacier-bas ed, year round-skiing is unique, but there is a huge amount of capital required to build out. It will depend on the extent it happens. I guess it’s the build it and they will come thing, but it remains to be proven.” MCJOBS? Jensen also spoke out against another common anti-Jumbo argument — that jobs created by the resort will mainly be minimum wage. “Panorama alone, we have this winter a little over 500 employees. For full-time year-round employees we’ve got about 120. And these are all pretty good paying jobs, certainly not minimum wage jobs.” –With files from Val Rossi and Carolyn Grant.

Smoke Eaters’ historical stock seems to stand the test of time GREG NESTEROFF West Kootenay Advertiser

Another installment in an ongoing series about local artifacts on eBay. They didn’t have much of a season this year, but the Trail Smoke Eaters are always winners in the eyes of collectors. Several items from the hockey team’s storied past have sold recently, chief among them an 8x10 publicity photo of the 1938 team that went for $115 US. The team won the Allan Cup that year, earning a berth in the following year’s world championship, where they breezed to victory. The picture shows headshots of all the players and executives, as well as the hardware they collected en route to the Allan Cup: the Daily News, McBride, Savage, and Patton cups, for the championships of the Kootenay Boundary, BC interior, province, and western Canada respectively. The photo’s reverse is signed by Harry Matthews of Trail and Dick Arter of Victoria, although neither played for the team. The seller, who was in Vancouver, also

offered up the most interesting item that failed to sell last week: a gold locket inscribed on the front: “T.H.C., 1921, K & B Champs� and “F. Laurient, R.W.� on the back. Translation: Trail Hockey Club, 1921 Kootenay and Boundary champions, Frank Laurient(e), right wing. Frank and brother Hank were Trail hockey stars and owned Lauriente’s Men’s Wear and Lauriente’s Grocery in the Gulch. There were no takers at the minimum bid of $395 US. However, a copy of the February 1963 issue of Hockey Canada, with the Smoke Eaters in their red wool coats boarding a bus on the cover, sold for $23.50

SENIORS HOUSING:

The UVIC, Chronic Pain Self-Management Program (CPSMP) is recruiting Adult volunteers to TRAIN AS LEADERS to then deliver the standardized 6 session, 2 ½ hour workshop in their home communities.

1938 Smoke Eaters photo has recently fetched $115 US.

US. This issue contained a story by team president James Cameron that expounded on the false origins of the team’s name — erroneously attributing it to a cartoon instead of the Trail smelter. The story was reprinted that fall in the team’s yearbook — a copy of which sold this month for $28 US. The seller of the latter was in Randolph, Massachusetts. Meanwhile, two press photos of the ‘61 world champion Smoke Eaters getting off planes can be yours for $99 US each. The first was taken in Oslo and is dated January 30, 1961. The second, snapped on February 16, 1961, shows the team arriving in Prague.

However, the seller, who is in Stockholm, is away until April 6. Finally, a ca. 1950s orange and black matchbook cover of the Cominco Arena sold for $19.50 US, along with a bunch of others from Trail businesses. Legendary curler Reg Stone was listed on the cover as arena manager. The seller, who was in Toronto, sold an identical one for $12.50 US in 2009.

Entertainment Fiddle-fueled magic at the Kootenay Gallery JIM SINCLAIR Advertiser Editor

Just by glancing at the poster ahead of the event it was reasonable to assume Kelli Trottier and Greg Sim would deliver a good show at the Kootenay Gallery this past Sunday night. The poster was well done and, after all, would entertainers be touring thousands of miles from home if they weren’t fairly competent? Getting a chance to meet the pair about a half hour before show time it became clear this would be an evening to remember. Case in point: Kelli mentioned a past affiliation with a touring show called “Bowfire” – kind of like an acrobat using Cirque du Soleil® as a reference. Kelli Trottier (a fiddle player who calls Kingston ON home) and Greg Sim (a Dartmouth NSbased guitarist) were accommodating and gracious from the get-go, supplying interesting info that would have been much tougher to get with the appreciative throngs vying for their attention later. There were at least 80 music lovers wedged into the gallery for the soldout show. That many bodies soaked up quite a bit of sound – leaving just enough echo for the barely amplified duo to create a beautifully balanced sound. Greg’s guitar required just a smidgen of electronic boost from a smallerthan-toaster-size amp

Kelli Trottier and Greg Sim, above. Kelli “Steps” into it, below. Jim Sinclair photos

to hold its own with the robust fiddle. Once underway the show was a sonic and visual adventure, deftly paced and throughly entertaining.This tandem has a joint talent-account that is apparently bottomless and the seasoned performers made full use of it. Trottier is a qua-

druple threat: equally outstanding on fiddle, vocals, songwriting and step-dancing. Wrapped around her offerings like a favourite quilt was Sims’ flawless guitar...at once supportive and inventive. Each player was a joy to behold. The two sets ran the gamut from barnburning instrumen-

tals in the celtic vein to Texas swing, a couple of Bing Crosby pop standards, timeless gems from the likes of Patti Page, Ian Tyson and Dolly Parton, some bluesy originals and one that sounded, to me, like a Transylvanian Hornpipe. When Kelli got into her tap shoes and demonstrated the art form she’s been working on since the age of four the adoring crowd lost it. The show was steered along by the warm and humourous team. The Castlegar stop was the last on a two and a half week tour of BC that had taken Trottier and Sim as far west as the Island. Needless to say they were pleased by the turnout which had been strong in every location on the tour. Back to the start of the evening, when Trottier and Sim had both indicated their strong commitment to teaching as well as performing. Sim is a busy man, a collaborator in many musical

ventures including sound engineering and production. He has a gig coming up leading a guitar workshop in Nunuvut. Trottier was asked her opinion of the current state of fiddle playing in Canada, whether its alive and well in terms of new players given its high degree of difficulty. “I like to think so,” she said. “There are a lot of adults (taking it up) and, even last night at the show we had a lot of teenagers who were fiddle-players, and five-to-seven year olds. I think it is coming back.” Ac k n o w l e d g i n g the strong desire and work ethic required to get good on an instrument like the fiddle, Trottier made a point of stressing the up side of taking it on. “I think the biggest thing is getting the message across that it’s fun,”she explained. “It’s an instrument and you do have to put the time into it, but you don’t want to lose what has been around for years. So hopefully there are enough of us out there, promoting it and teaching it, to entice a lot of younger players to take it up.” There were plenty of wide eyes at the gallery that night, the young and not-soyoung, dancers and fiddlers getting some big time inspiration. Many thanks to the Kootenay Gallery for hosting the show, and to local resident Ted Crosfield for acting as the link between the musicians and the gallery.

Will someone pick up the Joe Hill Coffeehouse reins? ARNE PETRYSHEN West Kootenay Advertiser

There may be only two more shows Joe Hill Coffeehouse in Rossland, as there still isn’t anyone to take the place of longtime organizer Michael Gifford, who has been organizing the shows for the past four years and is now looking for someone or a group to continue them. He said it’s not that the job is difficult, just time consuming, adding that it’s been a great experience. “It’s been fantastic, beyond my wildest dreams,” he said. “I

took it upon myself to do it and got the volunteers to help and the whole idea, the principal of the thing, is to give people a place to perform.” The loss of the coffeehouse would be felt not just in Rossland, but all over the West Kootenay, as many performers come from places like Nelson, Trail or Castlegar to show off their talents. Though there was a group who was going to take it over, the deal fell through so the coffeehouse is back in the realm of uncertainty. Gifford hopes a

Provincial cash for skate park Nelson Briefs The Kootenay Lake Outdoor Skate Park Society could be breaking ground as early as this summer after an announcement that they will be the recipients of a $400,000 provincial grant. “After I heard I just laid down on the carpet in the sun and stayed there for a bit,” said chair of the society Rob Levesque. “It’s a lot to take in. First of all the mayor and council came through this time. It’s been nine years and all of a sudden we have land we have a design and then the City put in for a grant and we have $400,000.” In December the City of Nelson applied for the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development’s Community Recreation Program. “We have to

raise at least another $100,000,” said Levesque. “But we have a good portion of that. It’s hard to say when it will be shovel ready, but what this $400,000 means is we have to have a lot of meetings to figure out the details. I imagine we’ll be breaking ground by at least next spring.” Healthy learning opportunity ahead Community First Health Co-op education series begins on Wednesday, April 11 from 12 to 1 p.m. at the Community First Health Co-op building at 518 Lake Street. Bring your lunch and join us for the first of free monthly presentations and question period on the second Wednesday of each month. Dr Joel Kailia will present on Medical Marijuana for Chronic Pain - Risks vs. Benefits.

Please remember to recycle your past issues of the West Kootenay Advertiser

group will come forward to continue the shows. He said what he does is simply receiving emails, phone calls, printing out the show sequence and organizing volunteers. “It’s just contacting,” he said. “You don’t have to be a musician or booking agent or a manager, you don’t have to be good in math, you just have to stay at it.”

The March 18 show in Rossland had an assortment of acts, ranging from singer/ songwriters to dancing. The lineup included Laela, a 15 year-old Warfield singer, songwriter and guitarist, Gifford on tropical ukelele and the band Motes and Oats, as well as many others. The next show is coming up on April 15.

Nitehawks flying The Beaver Valley Nitehawks got a big boost from their young fans as they rolled to the Kootenay Conference championship last Friday over the Fernie Ghostriders. With the victory, the Nitehawks advanced to the KIJHL final against the Kelowna Chiefs. Beaver Valley hosted the first two games of the final on Wednesday and Thursday. The series continues over the weekend in the Okanagan. Game 5, if necessary, is set for April 3 in Beaver Valley. Jim Bailey photo

Locals in Earth Hour battle Trail Briefs

A global challenge that has households and businesses turning off lights for one hour to raise awareness on climate change could result in some much needed cash for one nonprofit organization in the region. Residents who pledge to switch off during Earth Hour from 8:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31 will add to their community’s chance to win the FortisBC Earth Hour Challenge. The community with the highest votes will receive bragging rights and $5,000 worth of energy-efficient upgrades for a non-profit of its choice. Locally this includes Trail’s Family and Individual Resource (FAIR) Centre Society, the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (Miners’ Hall), the Beaver Valley Manor Society, the Salmo Public Library, Castlegar’s Habitat for Humanity and Nelson Cares Society.

Pacific Coastal beefs up service to and from Trail

Pacific Coastal is expanding its service to the Trail Airport with significant schedule improvements taking flight this spring. The airline will run a night trip to and from Vancouver Sunday through Friday and add an additional Saturday flight starting April 10, which coincides with the six-year anniversary of operation at the local facility. “We have seen healthy growth in the region over the last couple of years and we just thought we wanted to be able to continue to give the market an opportunity to continue to grow so we wanted to give it some more capacity,” said Spencer Smith, vice president of commercial services. “We’re excited about it, it’s really going to be interesting to see how the region responds.” The Richmondbased company opened its operation in Trail on April 10,

2006, offering a single flight from Vancouver seven days a week. Strong local support and growing passenger numbers led to the addition of a second weekday flight about six months later. The new spring/ summer schedule was designed to provide Greater Trail residents more travel options and greater convenience, especially with the addition of a second flight on Saturday and the latest departure time (just after 6 p.m.) from Trail offered by any airline in the region Sunday through Friday. Pacific Coastal’s intent is to maintain the extended schedule until Daylight Saving Time kick in and the days get shorter and the airline can no longer operate that late due to dark conditions. At which time, Pacific Coastal will revert to two flights per day but use its 30-passenger aircraft for both flights rather than its 19-seater to meet anticipated demand.

The Union of Spiritual Communities of Christ (USCC) held its annual convention in Castlegar on February 25 and 26 at the Brilliant Cultural Centre. Delegates representing member communities in the Kootenay Boundary, and the Vancouver, Okanagan and Calgary regions, and organizational committees and groups met to review the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spiritual and cultural activities, the state of its finances and assets, and structural changes implemented in 2010. Delegates expressed their appreciation to members of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body, the Executive Committee composed of Chairperson Jim Horkoff of Nelson, Treasurer Robert Zwick of Glade, Secretary Michael Davidoff of Ootischenia, Spiritual and Cultural Development Liaison Barry Verigin of Grand Forks, Finances and Asset Stewardship Liaison Briane Verigin of Winlaw, Youth, Membership and Communications Li-

Horoscope Michael Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor

ffor th the

Week

March M a 30, 2012

Tip of the Week: As the ďŹ rst Moon Cycle of the season achieves its 1st Quarter thus revealing a lovely half moon, the changes in the weather are noticeable. The Full Moon on April 6th is the ďŹ rst since the Equinox and so signals the celebration of Easter. Linked to the resurrection of Christ, it is apt that it coincides with this time of the year and the Moon fully reďŹ&#x201A;ecting the light of the Sun. Mercury turning Direct after a few weeks (March 12 - April 4) of Retrograde motion, during which time it shifted from Aries back to Pisces (on March 24th), where it produces bigger challenges yet in communications, is another reason to rejoice the new season. Mars too will turn Direct again on April 12 and by the 17th Mercury will regain its full composure when it re-enters Aries. Thus, the momentum will build towards Earth Day on Sunday April 22. It has emerged as an international celebration and which, though unofďŹ cially, celebrates the same â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;birthdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as the World Wide Web when back in 1993 on April 22, Mosaic Version 1.0 was launched thus making the web public domain! The internet too may be said to be experiencing its next peak phase, and Birthday, soon!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Though spring is here and as much as you want to get on a roll, you may feel as though something is slowing you down. Mercury retrograde is the likely factor. It will remain there until April 4th so if you feel the need to get going prepare to go against a current. Otherwise coast but take initiatives like preparing and cleaning before you launch into full action. What dreams may come? A lot of activity behind the scenes or at least in your thoughts is getting you excited. Deciphering which are realistic and which are fantasies is probably wise. Mercury is playing mind tricks on a lot of people these days. But dreaming and fantasizing do have their place too. Often out of them arise great visions, inventions and plansâ&#x20AC;Ś.

The last New Moon on March 22 is activating everyone. It stands to produce some sudden changes in you and among friends. New realizations are being sparked and perhaps not all of them are welcome. They are pushing you to make some important changes on the home front. Yet there are some blessings present as well so proceed with faith.

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

Some real changes are being activated on relationship fronts, again. Confronting subconscious fear, anger and frustration are possible issues. These may be projected upon your closest relationships. The key is to forgive yourself for how you and/ or they feel. Sweep away all â&#x20AC;&#x153;shouldsâ&#x20AC;? and accept and be grateful for what is. If you can and do, success will be yours!

Changes in you are affecting your lifestyle and vice versa. If the way is easy now it is because you are ďŹ&#x201A;owing and are not resisting and controlling. Meanwhile, opportunity is knocking. This may come in the way of allies or perhaps bigger stakes yet. These probably deserve your utmost attention. Yet avoid long-term commitments for now.

Activation in your game plan is pushing you to be resourceful. Drawing on old techniques and seeking new training may be required to adjust. Troubles close to home may be leaving you feeling confused or lost. Your willingness to give fully to situations and proceed faithfully may be the best you can do. Aim for new foundations.

Some big and major shifts have been seeded and they are quite noticeable to others. These require that you exercise self-control yet you may reactively seek to control others. It is likely you have been facing many fears these past 2-3 years and now you must again. Mercuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inďŹ&#x201A;uence may be leaving you feeling a little lost. Be patient now, you will know what to do more next week.

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

LEO (JUL 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; AUG 23)

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; FEB 19)

VIRGO (AUG 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; SEP 22)

PISCES (FEB 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAR 20)

A turning within to create conďŹ dence without is the call now. Clean, clear, organize, settle accounts, close old ďŹ lesâ&#x20AC;Ś. Things may be slower than usual these days, which may be a good thing unless it is affecting your cash ďŹ&#x201A;ow. This is not the best time for big ambitions. Enjoy the pace for now; you will be ready for bigger action in a couple of weeks.

You are changing. You can feel and perhaps see it. Ideally, you are achieving new levels of self-awareness. Yet you may sense a lingering mist on relationship fronts. Handled well, this could produce some deep heart healings. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Accept what isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: wisdom that might apply best. Aim for mutual understanding and let go of any controlling tendencies.

Some thoughts, perceptions and self-concepts are being activated. Yet, they may be coming up against some deeply rooted values and priorities. While money and security are important, you are wise to answer a higher calling. With healthy intentions, you will probably achieve it all anyway. Decipher what constitutes true alignment with your deeper destiny.

Your ambitions are being activated. Yet, you may be in a vulnerable period, so be careful who you share your plans and goals with. Above all, clarify what these are to your self and take initiative to at least plant the seed(s). You likely have a lot to consider so focus and avoid scattering your energies. Practical leads initiated now will likely prove successful.

It seems a lot of people are experiencing major shifts and activations close to home, including you. You would like to feel freer somehow. Your thoughts are roaming in all directions seeking answers. If blame is in the current, be aware that you are hanging on to the wrong branch. Intend to be understanding of yourself and others.
