    A Greenwood resident believes her livestock was attacked by cougars and is concerned that children and other animals could be next.

    The cougar in question went onto the Mathison property on July 4 and attacked a foal.

    The young horse survived but owner Ingrid Mathison said all the horses on the property are scared to venture too far away from the house.

    My husband went out to feed the horses that morning and he noticed a scratch on one side (of the foal), she said. When my husband came in to the house, he mentioned it to me so I went out-side and saw not only the scratch but three fairly deep wounds on the other side of the foal.

    Mathison said she immediately contacted the conservation offi cer (Dave Webster) and a veteri-narian (Ruth Simms) to check on the foal.

    The vet came out and put nine stitches in and gave (the foal) some antibiotics, she said. The conservation offi cer came out and took pictures.

    He got back to me later and told me it was probably a cougar attack, said Mathison.

    Mathison said that the foal is recovering well and is fortunate to be alive. She also said there

    were no other attacks on her 16 horses.Mathison said cougars like to prey on the

    youngest and weakest yearlings.Somewhere on our 160 acres (70 hectares), the

    cougar was probably hiding in the grass because it was so hot and jumped up and took advantage of the opportunity to attack, she said.

    Mathison said shes worried about more cou-gar attacks. Her property is near Crown land and she said there are many of kids on ATVs and bikes as well as lots of hikers.

    It could be a child next, she said, adding that she sees how nervous the horses are around the

    property. Theyve got 160 acres to roam around on with lots of water and a creek running through it, she said. Usually they go out and drink fresh water from the creek, but now theyre not even going out that far, which isnt that far from our house, without us going out there. Theyre staying really close. So now theyre basically on 40 acres.

    Webster told the Gazette on Monday that he checked out the foal and that it was defi nitely at-tacked by a wild animal, though he could not con-fi rm it was a cougar.

    It looked like a brief encounter, he said. The animal, for whatever reason, let go after attacking the foal. Maybe it was chased off by the mother.

    Webster said he has no plans to investigate fur-ther unless he sees evidence of other attacks.

    Its a large area in the wild where the horses are turned out, he said. There are bound to be wildlife encounters. The horses there are roaming out on 170 acres of land. Its not fenced in. This is an area where wildlife such as cougars and bears are.

    Simms, a veterinarian with the Kettle River veterinarian clinic in Grand Forks, agreed from the foals deep wounds that it was likely a cougar.

    I fi gured it was a cougar, but its hard to say for sure, she said.

    The report on the City of Grand Forks dike system, recently sent to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFL-NRO), was a positive one.

    Sasha Bird, city manager of development and engineering, reported that there was no evidence of deterioration, seepage, erosion or any other difficulty with either the dike or flood gates in-spections were carried out on April 30 and May 3.

    The only item that required further comment was the amount of vegetation that grows on or near the dike, in particular trees, whose roots might have a negative impact.

    Bird said she didnt think trees were a huge issue as there were trees in many areas along the riverbank.

    Theyre probably keeping the bank intact be-cause theyve been there for so long, she told the Gazette. For the dike inspection, basically, all the diking authority wants to know is that the integ-rity of the dike is maintained at all times.

    In her report, Bird indicated that no harm has been done by any of the young or mature trees, but that all are monitored annually and pruned or eliminated when necessary. It is felt, Bird said in the report, That removal of these trees and the associated root systems would cause more damage to the dike than dealing with the individual issues when they arise.

    The city manager of development and engi-neering said that there were large portions of the dike with trees that were on private property but it was not in the citys jurisdiction to enter on to

    private property and maintain it.We dont look after private stuff, it would

    have to be up to the individual homeowners to take care of that, she said.

    Based on the inspection, however, Bird said the dike seemed sound.

    It all looks pretty good. Weve done that section along Riverside Drive we rip rapped (in 2008) to secure it and we also did that sec-tion along the trail by the community garden (in 2010) we re-armoured that and the rest of it is pretty intact and pretty stable, she said.

    Bird said that the dike looks like it could with-stand high water, which has been known to oc-cur in the spring.

    Its been doing pretty good so far. Along the river where there is no dike per se, the high water has caused erosion and thats probably because of change in flow patterns and thats kind of why we did that armouring by the community gar-dens. Because the river changed course and we had a (20 metre) right of way there and we lost (20 metres) plus a bit more, she said.

    Thats going to happen but the dike itself, I dont think high water will affect it at all, she said. If we did have an extremely high water situation, that would be the time that we would definitely find out how the dike stands up.

    Also, Bird said the city completes inspections using standards and guidelines described in the documents published by the provincial govern-ment. We submit a compulsory report of inspec-tions to the Office of the Inspector of the Dikes, who then assesses the adequacy of our mainte-nance program and the safety of the dikes, she went on to say.

    At around 2:20 p.m. last Thursday (July 18) approximately 53 customers in the Jewel Lake area experienced an afternoon without electric-ity.

    According to Michael Allison, corporate com-munications advisor for FortisBC, the Green-wood Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene when smoke was reported rising from a power line.

    The fire department ensured the area was safe

    and FortisBC arrived on the scene shortly after to begin assessment and repairs.

    The cause of the outage was determined to be a tree branch that had fallen across the wires due to winds in the area. The tree branch began smoking; however there was no fire.

    The branch was removed and power was re-stored to customers at 6:33 p.m.

    On the previous day, winds in the area had caused an outage for 47 customers due to tree branches on the line. Jewel Lake resident Mal Logan said the wind on Wednesday had been ac-companied by hail three millimetres in diameter.

    With temperatures rising, the Southeast Fire Centre is reporting a fire danger rating of moderate to high across their whole region, with pockets of extreme fire danger.

    The Southeast Fire Centre, which includes the Kootenay/Boundary area, has had 53 fires which have burnt 170 hectares so far this sea-son, with 26 caused by lightning and 27 caused by people.

    In the Boundary area we have seen seven fires so far this season, said Jordan Turner, fire information officer for the fire centre. Five were caused by lightning and two were person-caused.

    Turner said there were 21 inci-dents this past weekend of improp-er or dangerous camp fires in the southeast area including unattend-ed or abandoned camp fires.

    Campers are being urged to be extra careful, he said. People need to follow proper regulations such as having eight litres of water on hand and having a hand tool, such as a shovel, to properly extinguish

    the fire. Fires need to be cold to the touch before leaving the area.

    Turner said its very difficult for Southeast Fire Centre to predict the severity of each forest fire season or where fires will burn.

    Wildfire management needs public assistance to report on forest fires or unattended camp fires, or they could become an issue, said Turner.

    To report a wildfire or unattend-ed camp fire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks.

    Turner reminds people that open burning restrictions went out on July 8, which include burning of any waste/slash or other materi-als, stubble or grass fires of any size over any area, and the use of fire-works, sky lanterns, or burning bar-rels of any size or description.

    Every person-caused fire is pre-ventable and ties up valuable re-sources and may prevent our crews from responding quickly to a natu-rally occurring fire, said Turner.

    Will you go tubing this summer?

    Weekly online poll from



    z Our View

    Due to unforeseen circum-stances, I had to get a new mobile phone, as my old one would not accept or send out email anymore.

    I went to the appropriate dealer during a recent trip to Vancouver and the representa-tive suggested I call a number to see if I could get the remain-ing year on my contract waived.

    It was likely a hardware problem and seeing as my phone was past warranty, would cost just as much as pay-ing out the contract.

    Ill spare the story of how the customer service rep I talked to wanted to remedy my situation by offering me more minutes, as opposed to repairing my phone or waiving the remaining year. I dont see how more minutes equates to the ability to receive email though.

    Regardless, I have a new phone, complete with all the

    modern applications, although technological snobs might thumb their noses at what they might view as antiquated fea-tures. After all, my new phone might not be considered top of the line by some.

    My new cellphone is com-pletely touch-screen no but-tons to push and as a result has a bigger screen. It has more memory and can play movies in HD. It has a camera at its front and its back and can record video as well, although so could my old phone.

    It has all the social media applications, including Twit-

    ter and Facebook, allowing me to tweet and post pictures and breaking news to the Grand Forks Gazettes Facebook page and Twitter feed, which allows for better dissemination of information, at least for those who are wired up to social media. It has a more advanced calendar and allows me to save events more efficiently.

    It has a compass and maps and can allow me to download more applications, for a fee of course.

    And all this is in a sleek, shiny new, light, little package I also purchased a belt holster for it too.

    It also allows me one-touch access so that I can call all my contacts Darn! I forgot to transfer all my numbers over to my new phone and now theres no way to recover them!

    Does anyone know the num-ber to 9-1-1?

    OPINIONA4 Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Grand Forks Gazette

    Reporter:Craig Lindsay

    The mercury is rising and while it did rain recently in Grand Forks and surrounding area, the last week has been extremely sunny and warm.

    As is the tradition at this time of year, people load up their trucks with inner tubes and floatation devices, park the vehicles by bridges and spend a relaxing afternoon floating down the Kettle and Granby Rivers.

    Also, to the east at Christina Lake, the number of vessels on the water is increasing, with an RCMP summer consta-ble patrolling the waters.

    Water safety is always important but it takes on more importance as it is the National Lifesaving Societys desig-nated National Drowning Prevention Week (July 20 to 28).

    There have been a number of drowning deaths reported on the news this past weekend (although not in the area) and it is creeping up on one year since a tragic tubing ac-cident at Cascade Falls in the Christina Lake area and it is a reminder that people should be cautious with summer activities near water.

    The lifesaving society is quoted as saying there have been 43 drowning deaths this year as opposed to 25 at this time last year.

    Much like helmets on motorcycles and bicycles, people dont always pay heed to safety on the water.

    While RCMP report that there seem to be less instances of either alcohol or lack of life-jackets recently, there have been reports of people consuming alcohol and not having a fire extinguisher in previous weeks.

    Graham Watt goes into to detail about things to be mindful of in his Kettle River Q&A column (page 12) this week swim or tube with more than just one person, avoid jumping from bridges, wear life-jackets and Grand Forks Recreation mentions that it has life-jackets available for those that need them (page 24).

    And while it all seem like common sense, water safety guidelines arent necessarily ones that people follow.

    Children often frown when their parents harp on them about safety but parents have their kids best interests at heart and the same can be said when it comes to water safety advice that is given.

    It might seem like nagging but the people giving the advice mean to keep people safe and not prevent fun.

    People are perfectly entitled to enjoy the water in the summer months, particularly in this area, but be wise and be safe.

    Stop the amount of drowning deaths.

    Dont take water safety lightly

  • Editor:A thing is right when it

    tends to increase the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community It is wrong when it tends otherwise. Aldo Leopold.

    British Columbia Timber Sales decided to proceed with road building and logging into an area designated as part of a connectivity corridor and the last remaining wildlife safe zone outside of the Gladstone Provincial Park.

    The decision to proceed with development is based more on meeting timber harvest quotas than safeguarding habitat and wildlife.

    Mitigation science, that is what I like to call these so-called practices, will be used to make some alterations to the way in which the road is con-structed and a few extra stems per hectare will be retained, (number of trees left in a cut block), to try and minimize disturbance to wildlife. The bottom line is that a road is a road, and roads allow access and an increase in human en-

    counters with wildlife. Road densities within the

    Granby grizzly bear population unit (GBPU) is extensive, with 61 per cent of the area having a road density greater than 0.6 km/km2; higher than any other GBPU in the province. Road densities over 0.6 km/km2 are considered to be detrimental to grizzly bears.

    Additional road access will also affect already declining mule deer and critically low goat populations.

    As a rule, large to midsize carnivores are among the first to drop out of confined wildlife communities such as the GBPU and small safe zones such as the Granby and Gladstone Provincial Parks.

    The dispersal or slow disap-pearance of apex predators like the grizzly bear affects the entire food pyramid.

    The loss of these alters the balance and movement pat-terns of prey species, grazing pressures on vegetation, alter-ing habitats and creating more instability for other species.

    The more we chop, road and develop surrounding habitat, the more we isolate existing safe zones of secure habitat. Connectivity and the freedom to roam are critically essential to the long-term sustainability of large carnivores like the grizzly.

    Large disconnected islands support smaller populations of wildlife.

    Roy Schiesser, Grand Forks

    Editor:On June 28, I drove from

    Lethbridge to Grand Forks with my daughter and three of my girlfriends (two from Edmon-ton, one from Calgary).

    None of us had planned to spend the long weekend in Grand Forks this year, despite it being our hometown; however, when we heard that Waterlow Audio was once again holding a Canada Day concert and that Ladyhawk would be returning to Grand Forks we knew we had to be there.

    This is the third year that I have attended Zaks Canada Day concert. This year was the best one yet, held in City Park, with a busy beer garden and no cover charge. City Park was the perfect venue for this concert, and Zak did an incredible job of putting together a great lineup, sticking to schedule, and doing the sound.

    From what I heard, the bands were all very happy as well. The sponsors of this event should be proud for having contributed to such a fun eve-ning. I hope that this event is supported well into the future.

    z In the Spotlight

    Canada Day rocked at City Park


    Recently at a gathering with friends, someone com-mented to a friend about alternating her home be-tween two places: working and living in Vancouver while also having a home at Christina Lake. She

    promptly and adamantly replied, No, no, I work in Van-couver, but I live here!

    That notion being able to celebrate living here is vital to community health. What does it mean to really be living here, in this place, and how can we do a good job of cel-ebrating and improving what we have here?

    Some of you will remember a couple winters past, when avalanches shut down some of our transportation systems for a handful of days no trucks came to town bearing shiny Chilean tomatoes, nor steaks from prairie feedlots.

    We do have the capacity to be producing these products locally (you may have to wait a tad longer for your early tomatoes and skip the feedlots, I suppose), but if we want reliable local production, we need to provide reliable local consumption.

    If you want the security of a vibrant local food system filling your fridge, you need to show local producers that you care about knowing whats in your food; that you care about having good food accessible, and that you care about local economy.

    On the whole, we all need to do a better job of recogniz-ing that the decisions about what we eat means a great deal to whomever is touched by the string of transactions be-tween your wallet and the soil underneath those tomatoes.

    And what of that string of transactions? When you pay that local contractor to refinish your roof, he or she pays her employee, who in turn pays for local child care, who then pays to go listen to the band in town that night, who maybe then takes that money out of town. Conversely, when you fill up with fuel in Kettle Falls, those dollars are lost from our local economy immediately, and furthermore, no tax dollars, gas tax or otherwise, return to our community!

    This form of economic recycling within a community, where income continues to generate income, is called a lo-cal multiplier.

    Some coarse research indicates that if every family in the Boundary spent just $20 more per week on local food (while not spending any more on food in total), we would have $5 million more entering our local economies that would spur about $10 million more in local economic activity. And thats not even addressing the jobs created!

    The same economics applies to other local enterprises, with slightly different numbers; whether its your local auto mechanic or the bike shop, it makes a big difference.

    So then, whats it worth to spend a little more of your time, energy and money in our local communities? There are myriad examples around the globe of the financial, so-cial, and environmental value of being more present in our local communities.

    Your local government is making some exciting moves in the right directions. For example, the City of Grand Forks recently adopted a local food charter, a noteworthy action solidifying their support for healthy local food and agricul-tural systems. So what about local procurement policies? How much is it worth to you to have a local contractor hired for regional district work, or a local florist creating our city flower baskets?

    If you think it makes sense for local government to live here, what about yourself? Whats your personal policy to help make this community healthier and more robust?

    This is all about living locally. Lets try to ensure that we are present in our communities: through thoughtful fi-nancial transactions, compassionate social interactions, and awareness of the environment that surrounds us. I live here, and Im proud of being a part of this.

    z POLICE

    Grand Forks RCMP responded to a complaint about a domestic assault in-volving minors on July 17, at about 5:30 p.m.

    Police were called to an assault, which occurred down at City Park, ex-plained Cpl. Richard Lanz of the Grand Forks RCMP. Young people, young of-fenders, were down there and words were exchanged and one male (alleg-edly) ended up striking a female.

    Lanz said the male was arrested, the matter is being investigated with possi-ble assault charges being forwarded and added that both were under the age of 18. Names were withheld due to the fact that they were minors.

    Eholt motorcycle accidentA motorcycle hit a ditch on July 19 in

    the Eholt area at about 1 p.m., say Grand Forks RCMP.

    Police were called to single-vehicle motorcycle accident on Highway 3 by Eholt, Lanz said. The motorcycle was towing a small trailer behind it and it appears that, possibly, the trailer went off the paved portion of the road, which caused the motorcycle to lose control and go off the road into the ditch, strik-

    ing a rock.Lanz said injuries were sustained but

    were not life threatening and added that there wasnt any additional information currently available.Tuber reportedly sees camera stolen in

    blink of an eyeA tuber reported that a $650 camera

    was stolen from her vehicle as she was bringing her floatation device down to the water on July 18 at 2 p.m.

    A vehicle stopped at Spraggett Bridge to go tubing. As the person was unloading her vehicle and going down to the river, somebody entered her ve-hicle and stole a Fuji camera from the vehicle, Lanz said. At this time, there are no suspects in the matter.

    Lanz said the doors to the vehicle were unlocked because the person was bringing items down to the river.

    Somebody was pretty brave. They mustve been watching, he went on to say.

    Loud music complaintOn July 19, at about 10:30 p.m., Grand

    Forks RCMP were dispatched to a com-plaint of loud music on Whitehall Road.

    Police attended and while they ini-tially didnt hear anything, loud music could be heard a few minutes later.

    Officers located a party at a residence

    on Whitehall Road and fortunately, a band that was performing was wrap-ping up its set and no charges were laid.

    Stolen tools from the LakeOn Monday morning, a man came

    into the Grand Forks RCMP detachment to report that tools were stolen from his driveway on West Lake Drive at Chris-tina Lake.

    Lanz said that the theft took place sometime on Saturday evening and there are currently not a lot of details available but if anyone has information, they are asked to call local police (250-442-8288).

    RCMP continue to patrol Christina Lake

    With the summer season in full swing, RCMP continue to patrol Chris-tina Lake to ensure boater safety.

    Over the past week, several boats have been checked on Christina Lake. Quite a few boats were in compliance but there were 12 written warnings is-sued for people not being compliant with the Canada Shipping Act and three charges were laid, explained Lanz, adding that the charges ranged from not having a boating licence to not having boat registration.

    He also said that there were no life-jacket or alcohol infractions.

    Different generations help make bread at museum

    On hand at the Boundary Museum on July 18 for bread making were (left to right): Sue Adrain, Joey Tatangelo, Deborah Goerzen, Bill Chiveldave (cook), John Malloff, Fred Horkoff, Jesse Hampf, Pat Phelps (doughmaker) Laura Lodder (buttermaker) Walter Hampf Jr., Anne Makortoff (doughmaker) and Mary Horkoff.


    Its not quite a lost art, but baking bread using a wood

    stove is not something you see all the time.

    Several volunteers, including pri-mary baker Bill Chiveldave, are work-ing hard every Thursday to bake de-licious home-made bread at the brick oven at the Boundary Museum.

    A group of about 20 people were on hand at the museum on July 18 to watch the bread-making process dur-ing a demonstration. Those in atten-dance also got to sample the finished bread with home-made jam and fresh-churned butter.

    Among those on hand were Walter Hampf Jr. and his son Jesse. Walters father, Walter Sr., built the oven which was used for the bread-making.

    Having the oven running today its been really good, said Joe Tatan-gelo, vice-president of the museums board of directors. We just started last week. Weve got a blacksmith shop here as well that just started up. The museum here is open and weve been adding new stuff every week, al-though its old stuff.

    Tatangelo said the museum is great for the community and the museum has been well re-ceived.

    The bread-making has been going for a few weeks, he said. But were been refining it and getting it down. This here loaf today is the best

    one weve had. You have to practice and prac-tice. Its a new way to make bread.

    Were going to do it every Thursday, said Sue Adrain, executive director of the Boundary Museum. Its open to the public. People can come by and have a sample. Were encouraging people that want to learn how to do this and vol-unteer to help out as well.

    Tatangelo said people can bring their own bread dough up to the museum on Thursdays and the friendly folks there will cook it up in the oven.

    City recommends five steps to save water

    As the summer heats up, the City of Grand Forks wants to remind residents that water conservation is crucial, as drought and water supply issues can af-fect the local water system.

    There are five simple things you can do to conserve water and still maintain a beautiful lawn and garden:

    Lawns and gardens require only 35 millimetres (about 1 inches or enough to fill a tuna can) of water per week during warm weather. Less is needed during spring, fall, or cool weather.

    Use a broom to clean your side-walks and driveways rather than a hose.

    Adjust your sprinklers so that water does not run down your drive-way, sidewalks or street.

    Collect water in a rain barrel and use it to water outdoor plants.

    Water only in accordance with the citys sprinkling regulations (even-numbered addressed homes sprinkle on even numbered days and odd num-bered addressed homes sprinkle on odd

    numbered days).Saving a drop can help save a lot.

    There are significant costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps and treat it to be safe and clean. Conserving water will reduce those peak demands and help reduce the cost to maintain and operate the water system, says Hal Wright, manager of operations with the City of Grand Forks.

    We are in mid-summer, the tem-peratures are high and people have their sprinklers going full tilt. The draw on our water system is at its highest for the year so its very important that people conserve water, he adds.

    The water that is used by each and every resident comes from deep water wells as deep as 76.2 metres (250 feet). Currently, the city pumps water to a res-ervoir located in the east end of Grand Forks. The electricity costs associated with pumping, as well as wear on the pumps would be reduced if water de-mands could be reduced.

    An average Grand Forks resident uses about 720 litres per day of water thats more than 3,000 cups of water ev-ery day. Thats also about one-third more than the average British Columbian.

    The little things you do can help to reduce water use, save on costs to op-erate the system and still allow you to have a healthy lawn and garden, adds Wright.

    DBA gets ready to go Back to the Wild West

    (From left to right) Kathy Boisvenue, Home Hardware; Maureen Paquet, GEM The-atre; Gary Smith, City Councilor; Dale Best, Work&Play; Donna Soviskov, Jogas; Carol Lajoie, Value Drug Mart; Karen Mauro, Kettle River Festival of the Arts; Cheryl Savaia, Thistle Pot Gifts; and Bree Lockhart, Thistle Pot Gifts, discuss planning for the Back to the Wild West event during the Grand Forks Downtown Business Association board meeting on July 18 at city hall. CRAiG LinDSAy PHoTo

    The Grand Forks Downtown Business Association (DBA) is putting on the wild west-themed event, which will feature several fun events for the whole family, on Friday, Aug. 9.

    The DBA, which formed in January, held a board meeting on July 18 to discuss several projects, including the upcoming the wild west event.

    Our Back to the Wild West Day is re-ally coming together, said Carol Lajoie, chair of the DBA. Its been a lot of work but were making great progress.

    The board meets once a month and has seven board members and two liai-sons, one with the city and one with the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce.

    The idea for the wild west came out of the old moonlight madness event.

    We were struggling to get that going this year, said Lajoie. Maureen Paquet of the GEM Theatre was really keen to or-ganize a downtown event and we had the Kettle River Festival of the Arts commit-

    tee approach us about doing an event. So we took some of Maureens ideas and the Kettle River Festivals ideas and our past experiences with moonlight madness and created the event were planning. The wild west theme was Maureens idea and we thought it would be a fun theme; an easy theme. Its something everyone can get involved it. Its also tied in with the movies shes bringing in that week.

    The Lone Ranger will be playing at 7:30 p.m., and Fievel Goes West is playing at 2 p.m.

    Some of the many events planned in-clude a pancake breakfast by the Masonic Hall; a bicycle obstacle and safety course; a cow milking contest; a performance by the Hip Sisters and a Luminosity glow and fire show.

    The planning is going great, said La-joie. Were very excited. We really want to get people out to the downtown core. We expect the stores are going to have some great deals on during the event. Hopefully itll create some great buzz for the downtown.

    Attending the meeting from the Kettle River Festival of the Arts committee was

    Karen Mauro, who was impressed with the planning so far for Back to the Wild West.

    I think it looks really good, she said. I think theyre getting really excited about it. We have such a pretty town.

    We have so much down here and people dont pay attention. If they can get stuff happening downtown, people can bring their kids at 10 a.m. and set them loose to have fun. I think itll be fun. I dont think we appreciate our town enough.

    If you ask visitors why they come to the Boundary in the sum-mer, chances are they will tell you they float the riv-

    ers, swim, or enjoy camping, fishing and boating at any number of our lakes, big and small.

    One fine day of canoeing between the border and Atwood Bridge last year we passed over 130 floaters, rafters, tubers, as well as dozens of peo-ple swimming, fishing, lounging and jumping.

    There are few places in the world with such clean, warm, swimmable waters, and visitors and residents celebrate that every summer. I have two friends up here that still rave about floating the Kettle (River) with their two kids years ago a lifetime memory for them, said one respondent to last falls water survey.

    A number of small beaches and swimming holes are scattered along the rivers, both close to town and very remote.

    As former resident Graham Knutson recalled, Growing up, I would go for a run or bike ride around town, then jump in the Granby at Sandy Beach or Riverside refreshing! We love coming back here in the summer for the rivers.

    A few tips can help a fun and beautiful day stay fun for everyone:

    Always swim and float with a buddy, and let others know where you will be getting in and out of the water. Know and avoid going anywhere near the location of river hazards such as rapids and waterfalls.

    Always know the depth of water you are jumping into, and beware of submerged

    logs, boulders and other hazards as you are floating or paddling.

    Avoid jumping from bridges water depth, debris and other hazards can change from week to week.

    Wear a properly fitted life-jacket or other personal floatation device when boating. Life-jackets are available to borrow for free through the Grand Forks Recreation Department

    Wear sun protection, bring lots of water and snacks and bring a trash bag to pick up after yourself, or others!

    Drinking and swimming or floating can be very dangerous be safe while in the water.

    Be respectful of private property along the river and near access points.

    Graham Watt is the coordinator of the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, and is working with a Stakeholder Advisory Group from across the region to develop the plan. Email [email protected].
