Cur-</p><p>rently that lot houses a picnic area but there is unused space at the south end where the gar-den will be located.</p><p>In a report to Council Man-ager of Planning Services Troy Pollock said that the proposed land use was compatible with the existing parks and recre-ation and low density housing zoning in the area. In addition, </p><p>the community garden is in line with Kimberleys Sustainability Plan which includes improving access to healthy, locally grown food.</p><p>Council had no concerns about the garden provided there was no excess noise at inappro-priate times and the garden was fenced to keep deer out.</p><p>Its a project worth doing, </p><p>said Coun. Kent Goodwin.Coun. Darryl Oakley said the </p><p>Deer Committee would be watching the garden like a hawk in order to make sure there was unintentional feeding of deer.</p><p>New Roots does intend to reinforce and add height to the fence around the garden area, Council was told.</p><p>FOOD SECURITY</p><p>New produce garden on Rotary Drive</p><p>See CULL , Page 3</p><p>DEER MANAGEMENT</p><p>KARIN VON WITTGENSTEIN PHOTO</p><p>Do you think Liam Chow wants to be a firefighter when he grows up? Kimberleys Assistant Fire Chief Rick Prasad dropped by to read to kids at the Kimberley Library last Saturday as the Friends of the Library hosted a Family Literacy Day event and let Liam try on his coat and hat.</p><p>Contractor hired to remove up to 30 deer from Marysville and </p><p>Chapman Camp/BlarchmontC AROLYN GR ANT</p><p>editor@dailybulletin.ca</p><p>A contractor has been chosen and the cull of up to 15 deer in Marysville and 15 in Lower Blarchmont/Chapman Camp will begin Feb-ruary 1 and end by March 15, 2014. </p><p>The Urban Deer Committee recommend-ed the cull of deer from neighbourhoods where complaints of aggressive deer had been greatest and Council voted to go ahead last fall.</p><p>This week a contractor was chosen and the cull will go ahead beginning Saturday.</p><p>The BC Deer Protection Society wrote to Kimberley City Council this week regarding the cull.</p><p>The Deer Protection Society was urging Council not to pick the contractor who car-ried out the cull in Elkford. Elkfords cull was suspended for a week after their contractor violated the terms of the permit by trapping and killing deer in daylight hours.</p><p>As it turns out, the City has not chosen the same contractor. Winning with what Mayor Ron McRae called the most competitive bid was Wade Jarvis, a Registered Professional Forester. The cost of culling and processing 30 deer will be under $15,000. The contractor will be provided with training by the Minis-trys Wildlife Veterinarian prior to conducting the cull. An experienced mentor will also be provided.</p><p>The City is asking residents to contact them through email (info@kimberley.ca) if they would like to have a trap placed in yards in Marysville, Blarchmont or Chapman Camp. However, the City also asks that those interested check with their neighbours first to see if there is an objection to a trap on their property.</p></li><li><p>Page 2 Thursday, January 30, 2014 </p><p>LocaL NEWSdaily townsman / daily bulletin </p><p>Cranbrook Community Theatre Presents</p><p>February 21, 2014 / 7:30 PM / $39.95 (+gst)KEY CITY THEATRE CRANBROOKKey City Theatre Box Office: Phone 250-426-7006www.keycitytheatre.com</p><p>Irish Dance Institute Presents</p><p>Almanac</p><p>YellowknifeWhitehorseVancouverVictoriaSaskatoonReginaBrandonWinnipegThunder BayS.

Hence, the 60th anniversary falls this year.</p><p>The Club hasnt had an ice show for several years, Mandryk said. So we decided to hold one this year in conjunction with the anniversary.</p><p>On Saturday, March 1, the 150 members of the Cranbrook club will be joined by skaters from Kimberley, Inver-mere, Elkford and Fern-ie. Almost 200 skaters from around the region will take part in a mag-nificent ice show at Western Financial Place in Cranbrook. </p><p>The theme is Cele-</p><p>brating the Decades, and Mandryk said it will feature music and cos-tumes from the 1950s onward.</p><p>The event will also feature some special guests rising stars in the skating world. Keelee Gingrich and Davin Portz from Cal-gary are the 2014 Novice Pairs Champions of Canada. They were just recently crowned at the 2014 Canadian Figure Skating Championships, held earlier this month in Ottawa. </p><p>Its definitely a fami-ly show, Mandryk said. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, kids under three get in for free. There is also a family rate of $25.</p><p>Watch these pages for a special feature on the Cranbrook Skating Club and its history.</p><p>Advance tickets will be available on Tues-days and Thursdays, Feb. 18, 20, 25 and 27 at the Memorial Arena from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. For more information, con-tact Debbie Mandryk at 250-489-2318 or debbie-mandryk@msn.com.</p><p>Skating Club celebrates 60 yearsGala skating show to be held Saturday, March 1, at Western Financial Place</p><p>Keelee Gingrich and Davin Portz, the 2014 Novice </p><p>Pairs Champions of Canada, will appear as </p><p>special guests at the Cranbrook Skating Clubs </p><p>anniversary celebration March 1, 2014.</p></li><li><p>Thursday, January 30, 2014 Page 3</p><p>LocaL NEWSdaily bulletin</p><p>This week, students at the Kimberley Independent School had the very fortunate experience to have Shane Philip perform. For those of you who had the opportunity to watch him at the Stemwinder last weekend you would agree that this man has a gift. He exudes a passion for music and has mastered several different instruments. Shane played two different didgeridoos (hand made), a Kona guitar (handmade), a Ukelele (also handmade), Aslatua (from Ghana), the steel guitar, a kick drum, electric bass, cymbals and the Djembe. The most amazing part was his ability to play up to five different instru-ments at once (including his spectacular voice). Shane had the gymnasium rocking with children and staff alike clapping, dancing and moving to the beat! His website explains his music as swelling in primordial pulses and wholloping whoops. I would full heartedly agree, says principal Jennifer Roberts. A huge thanks goes out to Shane for sharing his passion with the community of KIS.</p><p>Sam Van SchieNelson Star</p><p>Nelson Search and Rescue helped pull an injured snowmobiler out of the forest at Koo-tenay Pass this past weekend.</p><p>A man in his mid-20s had been riding along the south shore of Monk Lake with four others on snowmobiles, at about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, when he was thrown from his machine and fell badly, suffering what appeared to be a spinal cord injury. Two riders went to get help while the others stayed with the injured man, ad-ministering what first aid they could.</p><p>By the time Search and Rescue received the call, at about 4:30 p.m., it was too late to get a helicopter or any sort of air transport to the scene, so the evacuation had to be done by land.</p><p>Creston Search and Rescue members, who managed the search with a half dozen volun-teers on site, also brought in a team of five from Nelson SAR, who have extensive experi-ence working in ava-lanche terrain, and two from South Columbia SAR, as additional back-up.</p><p>They also contacted the Creston Snowmo-bile Club and managed to get seven people on snowmobiles to bring rescuers out to the scene, about 20 kilome-tres from the trailhead off Highway 3A.</p><p>Fortunately, the ava-lanche risk was low, which allowed the res-cuers to go into what can sometimes be da...</p></li></ul>
