Deadline looms for Providence Dam
The City of Greenwood has to decide whether or not to take over maintenance and liability of the Providence (Marshall) Lake Dam from the province of British Columbia by the end of June.
Discussions about the fate of the dam between the city and the province began in October 2010, after the Providence Dam was fl agged as “high risk” in a provincial dam inspection report.
The province noted that unless local govern-ment or a public body decides to step up, the dam will be decommissioned and the drain would have the lake back to its original size.
If decommissioned, the lake would drain along Providence Creek and enter the north end of the city before entering Boundary Creek.
The Okanagan Fisheries Section of the Min-istry of Environment currently maintains Provi-dence Dam.
Chris Stevenson recently created an online group called the Marshall Lake Stewardship Group to bring awareness to the issue.
“This group was created to achieve one goal – to preserve Marshall Lake,” he said. “The Min-istry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources has the licence for the dam and since the Testalinden (mudslide in Oliver, B.C. in 2010), the Fish and Wildlife dept. has been working to transfer the licence, or decommission the dam. I believe that this lake is worth saving and I know that other people feel the same way.”
Marshall Lake is located in the Boundary Re-gion between Grand Forks and Greenwood. The rock fi lled dam has increased the natural size of the lake from 2.64 to 6.5 surface hectares.
“It doesn’t have to be the City of Greenwood, it could be the public,” Stevenson said. “The let-ter (from Tara White, senior fi sheries biologist for the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resources) that went out said that option one was to keep status quo and to keep it with the government, option two was for it to go to the local government or public and option three was to decommission the dam.”
White pointed out in her letter, that “the Oka-nagan Fish and Wildlife Program doesn’t have the staff capacity or resources to maintain the dam and conduct annual repairs.”
Stevenson, a former city councillor, noted that the issue fell off Greenwood city council’s radar with the switch in council during the 2011 elec-tion, though he has been trying to raise aware-ness through social media and is trying to form a
society or co-op.“I’m thinking we can do a co-op where ev-
erybody will purchase a share, so for $25 you can own part of the lake,” he noted. “There are creative ways to do this that require grassroots, broad base support.”
Stevenson noted that while the City of Green-wood is interested in maintaining the lake, the upkeep of the lake won’t work with just the city alone.
“We need to start to think about environment stewardship in this region because this isn’t the only thing that has come up or will come up,” he said. “If we don’t act right now we’re going to lose it and it’s never going to be there again. We don’t have very many lakes here and it’s doable if a committed group of people get together.”
At last Monday’s Greenwood city council meeting, Mayor Nipper Kettle noted that city council passed a motion that they agree in prin-ciple but they will defer the decision.
“City staff has recommended that we not pro-ceed,” Kettle said. “But that doesn’t mean you always go with the recommendation. We will be asking the government for an extension in the deadline. It’s a very tough situation because ob-viously the ministry/government would like to get rid of it.”
The mayor pointed out that the dam has been there for a long time and will be there for more years to come.
“Ultimately it boils down to risk and risk management and liability,” Kettle said. “I don’t know if I would want to strap the citizens of Greenwood with the possibility of anything cata-strophic ever happening. It’s a beautiful site with camping and picnic tables, it will still be there but it’ll be much smaller.”
Marshall Lake has a recreational value with its campgrounds and picnic tables, Kettle pointed out.
“We’re looking at ways to keep it, but we do have to have a decision to make soon,” he con-cluded, noting that Marshall Lake is located in the regional district of Area D.
RDKB Area D director Irene Perepolkin has declined the possibility of taking liability of the lake.
“We don’t know what the liability is of the cost of bringing it up to standard,” she explained. “The (government) gave an estimate of about $135,000 to $400,000 just to bring it back up to standards before we could even get liability in-surance on it. I’m not interested on taking on the cost for Area D.”

Perepolkin pointed out that there isn’t a suf-fi cient number of her residents who use the area during the summer time.
“They do use it for cross-country skiing dur-ing the winter quite a bit, but the level of the water isn’t prohibited for that,” she added. “The lake isn’t going to completely disappear, but the water levels will be lowered to what they origi-nally were if (the government) does decommis-sion it.”
If a group was to be formed, Perepolkin said, “Area D wouldn’t mind helping maintain the lake but we wouldn’t want to have any stake hold in it. It’s not something my area is willing to support at this time.”
The Providence inspection occurred after the Testalinden dam incident near Oliver, B.C. in June 2010. The incident resulted in a debris and mud torrent that damaged a number of homes and agricultural areas.

Friday night storm causes flooding and damage in Grand Forks
Grand Forks saw some fl ooding and damages to buildings thanks to a storm that blew through on Friday night (June 22).
Hal Wright, manager for operations for the City of Grand, pointed out that the lightning did leave some damage to the city.
“At our public town shops, we had quite a few electrical devices that weren’t working,” he said. “The building was unoccupied at the time of the electrical storm but come Monday morning, nine of our large overhead doors weren’t working and from what we could tell, the circuit boards to the operators were fried from what appeared to be a power surge.”
Wright noted that something must have hit fairly close to the circuit boards, as the radios and gas pump operator were also not functioning.
“I’m not sure if it was just a power surge from the lines as a result of the lightning storm,” he added.
“Later that night when the storm hit, we had trees down that blocked roads and we had to have our crews out on a couple of different occasions to remove
the trees from the lanes of traffi c.”Prior to the lightning storm, a truck
hit a tree outside of the CIBC building.“A fairly substantial tree limb had to
be taken down to protect anybody who may be out,” said Wright.
The wind that accompanied the storm left branches and leaves litter-ing the streets around the city, and also damaged a power line near Interfor’s Grand Forks mill.
“That took out three poles, so our crews are busy repairing that,” Wright said. “They have re-routed the power and everyone is up and running, but they have to get this other line to make sure we have full power and the backup
ready for that area.”On Sunday, June 24, a mix of hail and
rain also saw some areas of Grand Forks with fl ash fl ooding.
“The townhomes on Granby Road saw some fl ooding when the water was coming down from the Valley Heights area overfl owed our storm sewers at that time. The water was starting to fi ll their parking lots,” Wright explained. “We had quite a few concerned residents contacting the city for assistance there.”
The city vacuum truck was sent to relieve the fl ooding by draining their parking lot and storm sewer.
Wright noted that locals have said these storms have surprised them as well.
“Everything is back to normal now,” he concluded. “The river doesn’t seem to be fl owing too high at the moment, but who knows with these storms that have been rolling through here.”
There were reports of damage at Christina Lake and calls to Regional Dis-trict of Kootenay Boundary Area C Di-rector Grace McGregor, Christina Lake Fire Rescue Chief Ken Gresley-Jones, Emcon Services Inc. Division Manager Joe Mottishaw and FortisBC were made but none had responded to inquiries as of press time.

Christopher James Cusack will be returning to Grand Forks on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Cusack was recently in court for bail hearings on June 19 in Grand Forks and on June 20 in Kelowna.
“He’s had his bail hearing but he hasn’t been released yet because he has to comply with the terms of it,” said a representative at the Rossland Court Service.
According to court services, no more information can be released at this point since the case is still on-going. Cusack is charged with two
counts of arson in the Grand Forks and Winnipeg Hotel fi res.
Tim LaFreniere was also in the Grand Forks courtroom on June 19 but asked for an arraignment, which will push his court date to Tuesday, July 17.
An arraignment is a formal read-ing of the criminal complaint in the presence of the defendant that will inform the defendant of the charges against him or her.
The accused is then expected to enter a plea.
LaFreniere is charged with ag-gravated assault after a fi ght that occurred in the Moto area (east of Grand Forks) on May 13.
CASSANDRA CHINGazette Reporter
Cusack in court in August, LaFreniere in mid-July Residents in the Grand Forks and Boundary
region will be able to drop off unused pesticide this coming fall.
“There will be an opportunity for people who have pesticides that are obsolete, or that they haven’t used in 25 years sitting around in their barns, to bring it to a local spot where it will be collected,” said Coun. Gary Smith.
The pesticides will be collected before being disposed of properly.
“It’s the fi rst time it’s happened in a long time,” said Smith. “I’ve been working on this for a couple of years and there are a lot of people in different areas have said that we need to get this done. The government has now said it’s time, so let’s get it done.”
Smith noted that it’s an expensive process, which is why it’s been several years since pesti-cides were last collected.
Dates and locations are still pending.

Decorations hang from ceilings, where plain pieces of paper are manipulated into 3-D dimensions and drab items be-come scintillating works of art.
Delicately wrapped gifts line the tables, candles are lit and the sweet fragrance of baking appetizers wafts through the air.
It’s all about that mad rush of putting last minute items together and checking, then double-checking, the guest list that never seems to end.
This weekend was a whirl-wind of activities for me; one cousin had her bridal shower, while another tied the knot.
I had the opportunity to meet family that I hadn’t seen in ages, gorge on delicious, ethnic foods and introduce myself to the families to be.
A marriage is as much a merging of two families and dif-ferent cultures, as it is two sepa-rate people becoming a pair.
Sometimes the families get along beautifully like long lost friends, and other times, not so well, though everyone hopes for the best in all cases.
It’s always wonderful to hear different languages intermingle during announcements, for local family and those visiting from abroad.
Weddings are a happy oc-casion, where funny facts and unknown details come out about your relatives that leave you laughing, tears streaming down your face and breathless after your stomach receives its unintentional ab workout.
You know, those games that
leave both bride and groom red to their toes, while everyone laughs at their discomfort.
There are the quirky dances, humorous quips and the often times heart-wrenching speeches from proud family and friends that are all part of the package.
It’s always wonderful to reunite with family after a long period of absence, but it’s equally comforting to realize the other family is just as warm and embracing.
Summertime, with its warmth and readily available breaks, is usually sprinkled with long celebrations of ever-lasting happiness and the start of another chapter in one’s life.
To those loving couples plan-ning a wedding or in the midst of celebrating one, I wish you all the best.
Also, don’t get too lost up in planning that you forget to breathe.
Oh, and smile.

OPINIONA4 www.grandforksgazette.ca Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Grand Forks Gazette
Students from Hutton Elementary painted yellow fi shes beside storm drains across Grand Forks last week and it was in order to raise awareness about the dangers of allowing pollutants into the water system.
According to a teacher approximately 140 storm drains on 30 different streets had yellow fi shes painted and with yellow being a colour that stands out, people should take notice.
City of Grand Forks Councillor Gary Smith has been given a go-ahead from government and said that people in the Grand Forks and Boundary region will be able to drop off any unused pesticides in the fall, although times and locations are yet to be deter-mined.
Once the pesticides are collected they will be prop-erly disposed of, although it is an expensive venture, according to the city councillor.
There will be pick up for pesticides and there is a system for recycling used motor oil and antifreeze but there should be more done to collect materi-als that could be harmful to the environment as it wouldn’t be surprising if there were people dispos-ing of pesticides, oil etc. by dumping it into a drain or getting rid of the said items in less-than environmen-tally friendly ways.
It has been some time since a pesticide collection was done and there is a chance that some of the pes-ticides that are collected could be of the older variety and no longer useful.
Some of the businesses currently on the used oil and antifreeze recycling program seem satisfi ed with it but there were complaints from current businesses in the program (and former businesses), that people come after hours and make a mess when dropping off oil.
An oily mess that could seep into the ground and also get into the water system and do harm.
The quality of water is important, as witnessed by a plan for management of the Kettle River which is currently in progress, and more collection of harmful items such as pesticides and less mess for oil recy-cling is benefi cial.
Good water benefi ts people and fi shes that aren’t made of yellow paint by storm drains.
More pesticide, used oil collection needed

British Columbia who support Stop the Violence BC (STVBC), a coalition of law enforcement offi cers, legal experts, public health offi cials and academic experts concerned about the link between marijuana prohibition and the growth of organized crime and drug related violence in B.C. and Canada.
The mayors are looking for support from other municipalities aimed at developing and implementing provincial cannabis-re-lated policies that improve public health while reducing social harms, including violence and gang activity. The mayors’ request was straightforward. “We are asking you as provincial leaders to take a new approach to marijuana regulation. Our communities, our youth and our public fi nances will benefi t from an evidence-base, public health approach to marijuana.”
Taylor advised the council that large grow operations are relo-cating from urban centres to rural areas of British Columbia and these new grow operations are equipped with security systems that involve weapons. In response to the letter, council members sat comfortably on the fence and their reasons for doing so are unknown. In response they passed the following motion: “To re-ceive the information with regard to the correspondence on ‘Stop the Violence BC’ campaign aimed at developing and implement-ing cannabis-related policies that improve public health while re-ducing social harms, including crime and gang activity.”
Regardless of their present position, councillors will eventually have to join the STVBC campaign. The laws will not be changed without strong public pressure and it is folly to believe otherwise. Stop the Violence BC wants cannabis to be governed by a strict regulatory framework aimed at limiting its use while also starv-ing organized crime of the profi ts they currently reap as a result of prohibition. The belief is that the regulatory tools that were ef-fective at reducing tobacco use would undercut the huge profi ts cannabis-driven violent organized crime in B.C. makes.
STVBC is an educational campaign seeking to improve com-munity safety by broadening the public’s understanding of the link between cannabis prohibition and gang violence.
Is British Columbia ready for a change? A recent Angus Reid poll in B.C. showed that only 12 per cent of British Columbians support keeping current marijuana laws in place. 81 per cent of British Columbians are concerned about increasing gang vio-lence. The polls also show that there is a fundamental shift in the attitude toward cannabis among the population. British Colum-bians are dissatisfi ed with the status quo.
Eighty-seven-per-cent of the population attribute gang vio-lence to drug traffi cking groups fi ghting over profi ts from the il-legal marijuana trade; 69 per cent state that arresting marijuana producers and sellers is ineffective and that B.C. would be better off taxing and regulating the use of marijuana.
More than 75 per cent reject the idea that possession should lead to a criminal record and only 39 per cent support the institu-tion of minimum prison sentences for marijuana trade -related crime, including the possession of six or more marijuana plants.
Some former political leaders in B.C. support the STVBC ini-tiative. Four former attorney generals are urging Premier Christy Clark and NDP opposition leader Adrian Dix to change the regu-lations. Colin Gablemann, Ujjal Dosanjh, Graeme Bowbrick and Geoff Plant signed a letter to that effect.
Grand Forks’ city council was elected to provide leadership. In this case it waffl ed. At some point it will have to take a stand and may that stand be in support of changing outdated canna-bis regulation as STVBC suggests? The discussion that STVBC is proposing will eventually occur and Boundary residents should be participants, whether they agree or disagree with abandoning prohibition.

With long-time secretary Doreen Sorensen set to retire, the Hutton Elementary School commu-nity raised funds and bought her a car as a retire-ment gift.
The 2005 Buick Allure was presented to her last Thursday night (June 21) as part of a sur-prise retirement party at the school, where she was honoured for all the work and service she has done over the past 30-something years.
“I’m just overwhelmed by the generosity of Hutton school and everyone who has honoured me and given me a car!” a surprised Sorensen said. “It’s so wonderful and I just love Hutton school and I’m always going to keep coming back.”
Hutton Elementary teacher Randy Breedveld and parent Cassie Foxley both noticed that So-rensen was driving what was described as an “old beater” and collaborated to send her out in style.
“I was talking with a couple of people and we heard that Doreen was retiring this year and be-cause she had touched so many people’s lives, we were trying to fi gure out what would be a good gift and someone said, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to get her a car,’” explained Foxley.
“It was kind of too big a project for me and I heard through the grapevine that Randy Breed-veld had said the same thing.”
Foxley went online and did some searching through Facebook to enlist the aid of former Hutton students to contribute to the cause while Breedveld and the school did various fundrais-ing activities.
A letter was also sent home to parents.“We basically just wrote a letter about her. We
said what she’s done – we tried to keep it to one page – what she means to the school and basi-cally this is what we’d like to do,” said Foxley, adding that bank accounts were set up at both the CIBC in Grand Forks as well as the Grand Forks Credit Union.
“Besides Facebook, we decided to spread word of mouth that we were raising money, so-liciting donations for Doreen’s car fund,” Breed-veld explained. “We had bottle drives, the kids in many of the classes collected spare change and one class had over $165 in coins, so we had some really amazing resourcefulness when it came to the deadline of getting this money.”
While raising the money was one of the chal-lenges, the other was keeping the plan a secret. Foxley said that the letters were sealed and the plan was not revealed to the children until later on.
Hutton Principal Doug Lacey said that it was also tough because Sorensen was such an inte-gral part of the school.
“We actually even called an assembly where we had all the kids come in to the gym quietly to talk about it and the kids were great, they kept it a secret,” Lacey said. “Often it seemed like I was the one out of the loop because I’m always in the offi ce.”

Habitat for Human-ity Boundary has received two awards this year for its ongoing commitment and dedication to the community.
“One was for the most homes built per capita in the country,” explained Director Rick Fri-esen. “The second was for the biggest build capacity increase.
So we went from building one home every two or three years to building seven.”
Since 1996, Boundary Habi-tat for Humanity has built sev-en homes.
The current project is a sev-en-room multiplex located on 72nd Avenue in Grand Forks.
“We’re just about fi nished our landscaping and we’ll be starting to paint a room inside the building,” he said. “This
(building) is going to take us to September to fi nish and we are tentatively planning for Sat-urday, Sept. 8 for our opening ceremony.”
Over the years, the City of Grand Forks has donated lots along 72 Avenue, while Green-wood has helped with the purchase of two lots. For each home that is built locally, it also helps fund the construction of a home overseas.

COMMUNITY❚ CANADA DAY
Why not do something special on Sunday, July 1, Canada Day?
It will make you a prouder Canadian and also improve your well-being and give you a sense of achievement.
This is the fourth year for the gentle stroll to the top of Observation Mountain in Grand Forks.
Meet fellow Grand Forkers, look at our city from on-high, sing O Canada, then walk down to join in with the celebrations at Gyro Park.

Three options are planned all starting at 9:30 a.m.:
An easy route from Prospect Place, Cop-• per Ridge, 1.6 km and 182 m/597 ft, A route of medium diffi culty from Bar-• bara Ann Park, Riverside Drive, three km and 261m/856ftA harder but shorter route from Grand • Forks’ Wildlife Hall, 2nd Street, one km and 175 m/574 ft.
As in previous years, good weather has been ordered (sunny and warm). Meet the guides at 9:30 a.m., bring a drink, reasonable footwear, a hat, red and white clothing (not mandatory), your voice, and enthusiasm.
Dogs and joyful barking are very welcome.

Canada Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this beautiful country we live in, the freedoms and opportunities we have, and the natural splen-dour.
And what better place to cel-ebrate than in cottage country and by one of Canada’s most spectacular holiday spots – Christina Lake.
This is a small community event, country-style, planned on a wisp and a whistle, and based around the weekly Public Market held on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. by the mural on Highway 3.
The Christina Lake Support-ive Living Society has stepped up to the plate to present a few hours fi lled with Canada Day activities, games, prizes, fam-ily fun, free hotdogs, cake and entertainment, before everyone heads off to the lake for the af-ternoon to cool off with a swim or boating, or to new facilities
in the area, like the Christina Living Arts Centre.Canada Day market, 9 a.m. to
1 p.m. All vendor and information
booth spaces are free on Canada Day and everything and any-thing goes, from arts and crafts, to fruits and vegetables, plants and fl owers, clothing, new and used (a chance to pass on those unwanted treasures sitting in the garage or basement), even foot massage.
Stalls are limited only by imagination but there is how-ever one stipulation; any bak-ing and canning must have Food Safe certifi cation.
Huge Canada Day sidewalk drawing
All kids and kids-at-heart are invited to add creative ex-pression to a huge community sidewalk chalk drawing - be-side the mural. Make a mark or add a whole drawing – all with the theme of Canada Day and what Canada means to you.
Entertainment at the Mar-quee from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Local talent is invited to present their favourite family style music at the Marquee.
So bring along your lawn chairs and sit back and enjoy music while feasting on your free hotdog.Kids Activities from 11 a.m. to
1 p.m.Youngsters will be on hand
to organize kids’ activities, tat-toos, games and great fun for all. Kids are also invited to par-ticipate in a Decorated Bicycle Contest.
O Canada and Cake at 12 noon
A very familiar local repre-sentative (we won’t give away who at this point) will be lead-ing everyone in our national anthem and inviting everyone to enjoy a special Canada Day Cake. Yes, it’s Canada Day, Christina Lake style. So come by the mural on Highway 3 and join in the celebrations!

All of Grand Forks should be beaming with pride for Amanda Schembri who has been chosen to compete in the Miss BC, Miss Teen BC and Mrs. BC Pageant on Mon-day, July 2 at the Chief Sepass The-atre in Fort Langley.
Schembri will compete with 50 contestants from across the province, who have the dream of becoming the next Miss BC, Miss Teen BC or Mrs. BC. The public is able to support their local contestants by vot-ing for the “People’s Choice Award” at www.missbc.ca.
The Miss BC, Teen BC and Mrs. BC Pageant prides it-self in it’s uniqueness in the pageant world. The program is a develop-ment program for young women and for the second year in a row, now has a category for married women, the Mrs. BC Pageant.
“I see no reason why marriage should end someone’s pageant op-portunities,” says creator and pro-ducer Darren Storsley.
The Miss BC program added the “Mrs.” component to it last year, for the fi rst time.
All previous rules that may dis-criminate against women in pag-eants have also been lifted. Unlike other pageants, there is not a long list of rules that make many women ineligible. For example, there is not a maximum age limit to participate, nor are there height and weight re-quirements.
Also, among the contestants are ladies who are single parents. This year’s roster of contestants even in-cludes a young lady in a wheelchair.
“The Miss BC Pageant celebrates all women, and yes, we would wel-come transgendered contestants,” says Storsley, who himself was Mr. World Canada 2007. Leading up to the fi nal pageant, all contestants receive professional training in ar-
eas such as public speaking, inter-view skills, media relations, model-ling, manners, etiquette, health, fi tness, nutri-tion, assertiveness and motivation-al speakers and even self-defense. “These skills will help all the contes-tants, whether or
not they are cho-sen as the new
Miss or Mrs. BC,” says Storsley, who is also director.
“The next Miss BC, Miss Teen BC and Mrs. BC will attend vari-ous functions across the province and need to possess the skills these workshops offer, however these are skills that are important in any en-vironment. This is not a Beauty Pag-eant,” he states. “It will be a well-rounded, intelligent, outgoing and well-spoken young lady who will win the crown, not necessarily the most beautiful girl.”
The contestants compete in a pri-vate judge’s interview, an on-stage interview, sportswear presentation, evening gown presentation, spon-sor costume introduction and char-ity fundraising. The charity of the Miss BC Pageant is the Cops for Cancer Tour of the Canadian Can-cer Society. Since 2007, the Miss BC Pageant has raised over $150, 000 for the Cops for Cancer Tour. Grand Forks residents log on and vote for Schembri at the People’s Choice award at www.missbc.ca.

The Grand Forks Branch 59 of the Royal Ca-nadian Legion has been awarded an up to $1,000 Gaming Grant from the Province of B. C.
The Legion Week Gaming Grant will be used to celebrate Legion Week from June 24 to 30 in Grand Forks and will go towards celebrating the Royal Canadian Legion and to promote its efforts towards raising funds for local organizations and veterans.
“We are planning an open house at the Branch on June 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.,” ex-plained Treasurer Georgina Ortis. “In celebration of Legion Week we want to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful Boundary Community for the help and support they have given our branch. It will include a membership drive, in-formation about the legion, a chance for people to see our hall, an informal lunch of hot dogs, tofu dogs, chips, cake, ice cream, or beverages for our guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.”
In response to their application, B.C. and Yu-kon Command President Bob Brady noted that their outline for celebrations is impressive.
“It is commendable that you will use this op-portunity to promote your Branch’s extensive charitable work in the community with all your business, civic and social agency partners. Well done!” he said in a letter.
“We will be using the grant to promote the le-gion in our community and to get some commu-nity involvement,” concluded Ortis. “We want it to be a fun and entertaining event for everyone. We thank the province for the opportunity to host this event.”

Committee looks at city’s green initiatives
The Grand Forks Environment Committee met on June 21 to discuss issues surrounding air quality, water sustainability and carbon neutrality.
Currently working to become a greener city, the City of Grand Forks and City Works have been working on several initiatives to lower its carbon emissions.
Wayne Kopan, manager of environmental and building construction services, noted that the city has to take over all carbon neutral programs 100 per cent.
“Before we were in partnership with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) on the carbon neutral project, but we now have to go into it individually,” he said. “I just contacted a fellow in Victoria and they are updating all of our data and will be sending us a smart tool that will be recording all of our information locally.”
This year, projects have included solar energy work in the campgrounds in City Park.
“There is now solar hot water running, which has now neutralized the heating of water at the campgrounds,” Kopan said.
City Works has also been using MC2 Soiltac distribution for dust control in the city’s alleys, lanes and parking lots.
MC2 is a company that sells an oil suppression product that is activated by water or the rain.
“From everything that we’ve got about the product, it helps
a lot with the environment and we haven’t heard anything contrary about it,” Kopan explained.
Along with cleaning the streets, Kopan pointed out that the city has done a 25 per cent reduction on fi eld consumption of fuel and emissions while working.
That was done by having staff double up in vehicles, not taking large units to do small jobs, and better planning for the crews.
“We also have the kitchen wastes project which is gear-ing up,” he said. “It’s proven to be a very successful program and we’re now implementing this in October city-wide. That will help reduce our waste going into landfi lls by 40 to 50 per cent.”
Kopan added that the waste disposal is turned into com-post and in turn, being used as ground cover for the landfi lls.
The kitchen waste green bin project began in January of this year as a pilot project in the Valmar area in Grand Forks.
Kopan also added that the lighting, heating and energy ef-fi ciency for city buildings is another project that is under way but will take a few years.
The committee discussed the new nephelometer study, in which they hired a summer student, Jordan Andrews, to look at and study the air quality in Grand Forks.
They also looked at updates for the Woodstove Exchange Program, air quality bylaws, water metering, well closure by-law recommendation and the Kootenay Carbon Neutral Ac-tion Strategy, and the city’s role.
It’s a celestial peace of mind at the lakeHave you been experiencing serendipity? Déjà-vu? Know-
ing? Thought about someone then the phone rings and they are
there? Known just what to do in a pressing situation? Written or drawn something and wondered where it came from?
Christina Lake residents and long-time mediums and heal-ers Rosemary Phillips and Beverly Ferrey are joining forces to present a delightful and fun-fi lled evening on Wednesday, July 4 from 7 to 9 p.m at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre.
($6) followed by a more in-depth get-together on Saturday, July 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. ($25 pre-registration required).
Both events will be fi lled with discussion, sharing and the opportunity to experience and develop your own amazing su-pernatural sixth sense.
Phillips and Ferrey will facilitate and guide participants in meditation, in exercises to experience intuition, mediumship, healing energy and psychometry and in discussion on angel photography, art, music and much more.

Walker continues to help students
Walker Development Centre celebrated the graduation of eight students on June 21.
An alternative learning education centre, Walker Develop-ment Centre offers an environment for students to return to school to graduate with their high school diplomas.
“We take a look at junior students, so Grades 7 to 12 and adult students who have not graduated due to work or life demands,” explained Principal Jennifer Turner. “The students aren’t able to pursue their education through the adult pro-gram offered by Selkirk College, so we provide graduation courses for students.”
Turner noted that Walker Development offers more fl exibil-ity for its students than the traditional learning environment.
“We don’t fall on a typical semester system where it’s Sep-tember to January, and then January to June,” she said. “Some of our students are able to go through our courses much more quickly, so they could be fi nished in a couple of months, where as some students may need a full year. Because of the tradi-tional timetable at a regular school, that kind of fl exibility isn’t available.”
She pointed out the students are able to take classes during
the morning, afternoon or after school around 5:30 p.m.The fl exible system allows opportunities for the students
for more options to study and continue with their education. “We have a lot of different reasons why students come to
us,” Turner added. “Some students come to us who want to re-engage with school, while some are looking for alternate kinds of format for delivery. Some come to us for a short time because we transition them back to Grand Forks Secondary or another school.”
This year’s eight students are the largest graduating class for the centre.
“We are extremely proud of our kids. Some of them work tirelessly to get their graduation despite whatever life chal-lenges or demands, in terms of having a family or employ-ment,” said Turner. “To think that they did all of those things and manage to continue on with their studies. I know for all of them this isn’t the end and they’re moving on to bigger and better goals and wish them the best.”
Walker Development Centre has been in its current loca-tion for four years but it’s been around for more than three decades in Grand Forks in various forms.
Walker Development Centre’s roots go back to the teach-er Fred Walker, who was the original alternative teacher in School District 51.
A conversation or two in The Bartab
Michele Garrison will be directing The Bartab on June 29 and 30 at Studio B at 7:30 p.m.
Written by local Anya Soroka, the one-act play is about how a girl (Soroka) wants to get to know a guy (portrayed by Vanya Popov) better.
Garrison met Soroka after her previous production called V-Day: A memory, a monologue, a rant and a prayer.
“I was impressed by her as a young director and shaping it,” she said. “Anya approached me and we both have a similar background being conservatory trained. I have a background in classical repertoire theatre.”
Garrison believes that the play speaks about the fundamen-tal communication problems between a man and a woman.
“It’s really interesting because the play is deeper than those political issues for men and women,” she said. “I think a lot of confl icts that could be characterized as sexist, on the deepest
level could be considered miscommunication based on gen-der differences.”
It was in the early 1980s when Garrison changed profes-sions and became a psychotherapist, which gives her unique perspective for the play.
“So not just as an artist, but as a psychotherapist, the themes of this play are really important,” she added.
Garrison has worked in Vancouver and Edmonton, as well as some performances for the CBC.
“I saw some of the best professional theatres with small touring companies in Canada, and I came from New York,” she explained. “What excites me about art in Canada is that you don’t have to be a trademark start to make a living here in the arts.”
After the play, there will be a break for intermission before several poems and monologues will be presented.
The audience will be asked to participate by asking ques-tions for a discussion.

It will be three months on June 5 since Lisa Smith opened up Lisa’s Lakeside Bistro at Chris-tina Living Arts Centre.
Focusing on locally-grown produce and homemade items, Smith explained the every-thing, from soups to salad dressings, is made from scratch.
“We get bread from the local bakery From the Hearth, and I do a lot of stuff at Huckleberry when I can,” she said. “Everybody’s ecstatic that I’ve been keeping it local.”
Smith has been involved in the restaurant industry since she was 16 years old, and she jumped at the chance to have her own business.
“This seemed like the best opportunity in the world,” she pointed out. “I have been living here for fi ve years and it’s such a beautiful and amaz-ing building. There are meetings and functions going on all the time, and it’s a great size.”
Along with coffee and tea, Lisa’s Lakeside Bistro offers a healthy serving of breakfast and lunch.
There is gluten free bread, as well as non-dairy alternatives.
With its prime location, Smith noted that there is regular traffi c from visitors stopping by from
the highway and local organizations that come in for lunch.
“I was telling some of the locals that if there isn’t a quesadilla on the menu, just order it,” she said, though they are in the process of creating a new menu. “We have the ingredients to make it.”
The to-go cooler is being set up, but once it’s ready, Smith noted that people can pack up a pic-nic lunch and head out to the park.
What’s made the business possible is the um-brella of support that Smith has received.
“I don’t feel like I’m alone here,” she said. “The local support has been absolutely incred-ible.”
Future plans for the Living Arts Centre and the bistro include the possibility of creating an outdoor theatre for a movies night, or inviting lo-cal musicians to perform on Friday nights.
“There are so many talented people associat-ed with this building that anything is possible,” she said. “I fi nd that life can be hectic, so taking a break here is a great way to relax. Whether you’re listening to the laughter and banter, or taking your tea outside to sit under a tree, people should be able to take a break and feel relaxed.”
Lisa’s Lakeside Bistro is open at 7 a.m., seven days a week, and will have later hours during the summer.
CASSANDRA CHINGazette Reporter
Lisa’s Lakeside Bistro focuses on the locals
Grand Forks residents Dave Bachmier and Joe Sheremeto want to show the community that they are good neighbours.
The two have opened Neighbours Computers on Central Avenue and 2nd Street and they want it to be a one-stop shop for people looking for computers and all things related.
A retired member of the Armed Forces, Bach-mier has been working with computers since 1984 and has been building them since 1996 and says he won’t be buying stock and putting it on his shelves hoping that someone comes in to buy it. “I can buy something and it can be six months old, sitting on the shelf and I just want to get it off the shelf and sell it to you or, I can say ‘You know many things quickly change with technology? Let’s order in what you want, when you want it,’ because my suppliers are the same suppliers that supply Future Shop and Wal-Mart so I get the same product.” he explains, adding that they also build custom home, business and gaming computer systems.
He says that Neighbours Computers will also provide high-end video cards, printers, periph-
erals and they can even help someone set up a website.
“Whatever you can attach to a computer, or a computer attaches to, we sell it, we can get it in for you. Our suppliers are in Vancouver, with warehouses that almost always ship overnight (dependent on stock) and we also do network-ing,” he said.
Bachmier says that Neighbours Computers has about 14 corporate clients in Grand Forks, all of whom the business is doing computer net-working work for – he says that he and Shereme-to have installed cabling and set up networking and fi rewalls etc.
While Neighbours Computers is open Mon-day to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., both he and Sheremeto are available by appointment as well to install or set up computers.
Another thing that Bachmier would like to eventually see is the shop selling video games and he envisions opening the store at midnight for popular new releases.
While Neighbours Computer has been open for a while, its grand opening will be on Satur-day, June 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will have a barbecue by donation with proceeds going to the Boundary Community Food Bank.

Organized sport events, no matter how big or small, have an environmental impact.
With the help of its motivated volunteers, the BC Games Society is striving to reduce its envi-ronmental impact and raise awareness.
Community-driven programs initiated by the BC Winter and Summer Game volunteers are contributing to reducing the environmental impact of the games and are developing leaders by increasing environmental awareness among game participants, volunteers and community members.
For example, the 2008 BC Winter Games in Kimberley and Cranbrook established the best practices to reduce environmental impact.
A volunteer team of “Go Green” ambassadors were active and visible during the games, imple-menting the plan and raising awareness.
This community-led initiative developed youth leaders and established important bench-marks that future hosts could refer to in order to reduce their environmental impact.
The 2010 Summer Games in the Township of Langley took the lead to ensure all food waste was composted and recycling bins were avail-able at all sport venues.
“The challenge for BC Games host communi-ties is the great variety of available resources to implement changes in areas such as transporta-tion, food services and venue operations,” said Kelly Mann, President and CEO of the BC Games
Society. “But, given that there is a clear desire by participants and host communities to reduce en-vironmental impact, the BC Games Society took the lead to develop information and resources for community volunteers to adapt to guide policy and implement action plans.”
Before the 2010 BC Summer Games, Metro Vancouver, the regional government responsible for waste management in the Greater Vancouver area, provided policy and planning support.
What resulted is a set of resources and sam-ples that refl ect the unique structure of the BC Games and consider the many different commu-nities involved.
The BC Games resource materials complement other established “green” games standards, such as a no-idling policy for all games transportation vehicles.
No bottled water is supplied to venues at the BC Games and athletes are required to bring a re-usable water bottle to fi ll with tap water through-out their competitions.
Greening the games also comes in places you don’t expect.
Until 2009, the BC Games torch was lit 100 days prior to the opening ceremony.
This torch burned 25,485.16 cubic metres (900,000 cubic feet) of natural gas and contrib-uted 12 tonnes of greenhouse gases to the atmo-sphere.
The gas torch is now retired and replaced with an energy-effi cient LED torch that draws 850 watts of energy – comparable to a household toaster.
This torch symbolizes the innovation and ini-tiative that the BC Games will strive to adopt with other environmentally responsible initia-tives moving forward.
The 2012 BC Summer Games goes from July 19 to 22 in Surrey, B.C.

SPORTS❚ 2012 PHARMASAVE CHRISTINA LAKE TRIATHLON
GFSS alum takes triathlon at lake
A Christina Lake native fi nished fi rst in the eighth annual Pharmasave Chris-tina Lake Triathlon while his girlfriend was the fi rst female to cross the fi nish line.
Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) alumnus Simmon Hofstetter, who currently resides in Edmonton, took top spot, with a time of 1:12:54 while signifi cant other Laura Filipo was fi rst amongst ladies to cross the fi nish line and third overall with a 1:23:03 time.
“I heard that a lot of people from out of town are coming back to compete so I wanted to make sure Grand Forks and Christina Lake had a chance at the top,” Hofstetter quipped shortly after cross-ing the fi nish line.
As for Filipo, she said she pushed herself to the limit in order to fi nish as high as she did.
“It hurts. (Kelowna’s Ashlee Robin-son, who was second amongst the la-dies) really pushed it, so it was good,” she said.
While there were weather concerns leading up, the rain held off for the most part but Hofstetter and Filipo both no-ticed that it had been raining.
Hofstetter said it was more noticeable on the cycling portion.
“As you were coming around Thomp-son Road, there were a couple of points where it was sketchy and you could feel your wheel kind of eke out but it was good,” he explained.
“It was really cold at the start. I did not want to get in the water but it was perfect weather for the ride and the run, it was not too hot,” Filipo said, adding that she didn’t have a problem with the road conditions.
“It was amazing,” she said when asked about the road. “I was really im-pressed with how fast the clean up was, it was awesome. They were on it right away; they did a really good job. Com-pared to Edmonton it was (good).”
Planners did worry about the weath-er, as a Friday night storm wrecked hav-oc, but Sunday morning’s rain wasn’t going to prevent the triathlon from tak-ing place.
“We were out here (Saturday) for about fi ve hours and we had to redo somethings – fencing came down in the windstorm, trees came down across some of the pathways – but the only thing that was going to keep us out of the water would’ve been lightning,” explained Grand Forks Recreation Di-rector of Recreation and Facilities John Mackey.
“We had a little bit of rain during the KidSprint event but overall, the num-bers were up over 25 per cent over last year,” Mackey said. “There was one col-lision but other than that, it was an abso-lutely super event.”
Hofstetter and Filipo both echoed
Mackey’s sentiments, as both had noth-ing but praise for organizers and the event – both seemed to hint that they would be back to defend their titles in 2013 as well.
“It’s a great race, we’ll be com-ing back year after year I think,” said Hofstetter, who wanted to thank retired GFSS teacher Murray Behl with getting him into triathlon.
“It’s a really cool atmosphere, every-one’s really chill and that kid’s race this morning was awesome. I’m totally go-ing to come back and do this year after year. It was really fun,” Filipo said.
Grand Forkers Todd and Sally Ben-son (the Bensonians) took fi rst place in the team category, while Rossland’s Madeline Kinghorn, Nelson’s Keiran Marchand and Grand Forks’ Ethen Ar-gue, Liam McKinlay and Miles Semenoff (The Tri Guys) and Rossland’s Natasha Rboine, Daniela Sirois and Jasmine Dro-let (The Dudettes) took top spot in the girls, boys and team categories respec-tively in the KidSprint event.

Notice of Passing
John was born on March 10,1928, in the village of Sleepy Hollow at Grand Forks, B.C., to Paul and Helen Zibin. He received his schooling at the Fructova School learning to read and write in both English and Russian. John was also involved in the USCC community activities and men’s choir.
As a boy John went to work in the fi elds on various farms in Grand Forks. His father died when John was seven years of age and at the age of 11 he went out to work accompanied by his grandmother to help to provide for the household. As a teenager he worked away in the Okanagan orchards.
John acquired a love of music and played various instruments - accordion, harmonica, guitar, violin and mandolin. He played with friends at dances and entertained at the packing houses in Grand Forks as well as the Okanagan.
When John returned to Sleepy Hollow he met and started courting Florence Seminoff. They fell in love and married on May 3, 1952. After their marriage John and Florence set up their own home in Sleepy Hollow and saw the birth of their son Steve in October 1953, daughter Betty in March 1956, and son Johnnie in September 1958. In 1959 the family moved to west Grand Forks to their newly built home where the youngest daughter Shelly was born in November 1963.
John studied to obtain his ticket in heavy duty mechanics then spent most of his adult life working in the logging industry. When John was working in the logging camps he ran a jammer which was the predecessor machine to log yarders. In 1958 John joined his uncle Fred Zibin and started their own logging company called Zibin Contracting. Here he stayed until the company sold. In 1975 he went to work for Pope and Talbot. John was offered the position of logging supervisor, however he chose to work as a cat operator until his retirement in 1993.
Throughout the years John and Florence enjoyed camping and travelling to various vacation destinations including Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica and Cuba. In his retirement he enjoyed gardening and especially spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. John lived at home until his health declined and was hospitalized in May of this year. He passed away in his 84th year on June 17, 2012, under the loving watch of his family.
John was predeceased by his father and mother and daughter, Shelly. He is survived by Florence, his wife of 60 years; son, Steve Zibin and wife, Debbie; son, John Zibin and Connie; and daughter, Betty Gelter and husband, Jeff; his nine grandchildren: Vanessa, Christa, Justin, Vicki, Audra, Drew, Colleen, Amanda and Quentyn; great-grandchildren, Ethan and Anna. Also surviving John is one brother, Mitch Zibin of Grand Forks and one sister, Polly Sherbinin of Trail, and many nieces and nephews.
John was a hardworking and caring man who loved his family very much. He was a lifetime member of the USCC. John will be greatly missed by family and friends.
Thank you God for accepting his soul into Your heavenly kingdom.A traditional Doukhobor funeral was held on Saturday, June 23, 2012, in
the chapel at the Grand Forks Funeral Home. Jerry Semenoff offi ciated the service. Burial followed at the Sion Russian Doukhobor cemetary. Grand Forks Funeral Home was entrusted with funeral arrangements.
The family is deeply appreciative of everyone who telephoned, sent fl owers and cards, brought food, visited the home and attended the service and all who travelled from afar. We are also grateful to Everett Baker and staff at the Grand Forks Funeral Home; J.J.Verigin, Laura Verigin and Paul (Jerry) Semenoff for their guidance, comfort and exceptional care in offi ciating at the service; the singers, cooks and gravediggers. We also extend a heartfelt thanks to his family doctor, the nurses and staff of Boundary Hospital for their compassionate care of our dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and the support they extended to the family. We are truly grateful to all for your love and support. Donations to the B.C. Cancer Society or Iskra, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Notice of Passing
Bob was born on June 2, 1938, at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the second child to Philip and Anne Pfeifer (nee Poier), and younger brother to Norman. This was a hard working farming family with one day off a week for music, which Bob continued to enjoy and played the guitar up to a week before his untimely passing with brother Norman on mandolin and sister Myrna humming in the background.
There were always chores to do around the farm and entertainment sometimes included riding a pig. Getting to the one room elementary school meant taking a horse and buggy and remembering to feed the horse at recess. The family moved to Surrey Centre, B.C., in 1946 and he attended Surrey Centre Elementary and Lord Tweedsmuir High School. Bob was a natural athlete excelling in gymnastics, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, scuba diving and golf.
Bob travelled the province working a variety of jobs from the Highways department, life insurance salesman, boat and fl oat home designer/builder, barber, commercial fi sherman and many happy days spent beachcombing on the Fraser River. He packed up and moved to Grand Forks on January 28, 1983. He lived at the Pinegrove Motel briefl y and opened a barbershop located across from the Overwaitea parking lot where he met Linda Pearce who became his life partner for 27 years. Bob moved his shop to 72nd Avenue where he welcomed old friends and new, shared his philosophy of life, listened empathetically, swapped stories, lies and jokes plus gave great haircuts until he closed up shop at the age of 72 in 2011.
Bob was involved with the Gyro club, Christina Lake Golf course and was an active curler for many years. He never gave up on the Canucks (Canuckle Heads) and was a great supporter of the Grand Forks International baseball tournament.
Bob was loved for his generous spirit and spontaneous nature. He loved animals and he and Linda raised many litters of puppies. Bob was always willing to lend a hand or give a handout. He was a hard worker and loved cutting grass on his riverfront property at Manly Meadows although it was a love/hate relationship through the years. Bob was so happy on his tractor “Casey”!
Bob is survived by Linda Pearce and her girls, Kelly and Katie; four children: Shelly Siwak (Lou), Jody Pfeifer (Hugh), Tammy Saunders and Jeff Pfeifer (Tammy); his mother, Anne Busby; brother, Norm (Sue); sister, Myrna (Doug) and their son Logan; grandchildren: Leanne (Max), Matthew, Ryan, Brittany and Josh; great-grandchildren, Jake and Aubree; many nieces and nephews who will miss their “Unca’ Bob”, and last but not least, his “Six-Pack”: Bogey, Brook, Birdie, Noelle, Holly and Zeus; and two loving cats, Frankie and Joey.
He will be missed greatly, not only by his family, but by his very close friends (you all know who you are as there are too many to name).
Thanks to the wonderful care Bob received from his doctor and the nurses at Boundary Hospital. Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements.

Know signs of stroke and act “fast”
Stroke is the third-leading cause of death and a leading cause of disability in Canada. Treatment is complex and time sensitive. Interior Health (IH) urges residents to know the signs of stroke and get help as quickly as possible.
“The importance of early recognition can’t be overstated,” says Dr. Todd Collier, a stroke neurologist at Royal Inland Hospital and Interior Health regional stroke lead.
“The fact is many people who could benefi t from treatment don’t access medical help quickly enough. Remember ‘FAST: Face, Arm, Speech, Time.’ If the face is drooping on one side, or there is weakness in one arm, or if speech sounds slurred or strange, it is time to call 911.”
Interior Health continues to build on its success in improv-ing treatment for stroke patients, with the (age-adjusted) rate of deaths due to stroke decreasing over the last four years.
The Canadian Institute for Health Information recently ranked Royal Inland (RIH) in Kamloops as the best perform-ing hospital in B.C. in the rate of deaths caused by stroke. RIH also placed fourth for best stroke patient outcomes among larger Canadian hospitals.
IH participates in the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council Stroke Collaborative.
Teams at fi ve Interior Health sites have been participating in this Collaborative since September 2011: Shuswap Lake General Hospital (SLGH) in Salmon Arm; Royal Inland in Kamloops, Kelowna General, Cranbrook’s East Kootenay Re-gional Hospital and the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospi-tal in Trail.
The collaborative teams are working together to ensure effi cient pre-hospital care, increase the rate of rapid medical interventions, further best-practice in emergency department stroke care, and help ensure patients at high risk for stroke receive the necessary follow-up.
“Across Interior Health, the collaborative teams have been active in making improvements at their sites. They are now looking at expanding the impact of their work to better sup-port consistent stroke care at all of our facilities,” says IH Prac-tice Lead Lori Seeley.
In the Kootenays, teams are focused on knowledge sharing to improve outcomes. This spring, stroke specialist from East Kootenay Regional Hospital Dr. Errin Sawatsky and the Cran-brook TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) clinic nurse travelled to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital to conduct education and training with the Trail area’s stroke team.
“We would like to recognize the collaboration and commit-ment of the many partners involved in helping us improve stroke care,” says IH Board Chair Norman Embree.
A fl ight awayButterfl ies will soon be making their annual migra-tion.
