Andy Davido , president of the Kootenay Columbia Teachers Union says actions by the board of School District No. 20 have hit his membership hard in the early days of current job action by the BC Teachers Federation.
Morale is terrible, said Da-
vido on Wednesday morn-ing, the second day of full strike action by teachers.
We had a couple of things happen that our board did that did not happen in other dis-tricts. One - they took our keys away last Friday and and that was extremely demoralizing.
Davido said there are teachers in the district who have 30 and
more years experience who had never before been asked to turn over their keys, for any reason.
Another concern expressed by Davido is that of pay cuts to teachers, with no advance notice.
In anticipation of job action they deducted two weeks of pay, he said. Some teachers received zero pay. We had no notice of this. Not every board in the prov-
ince did this our board did.Davido s third point made
on June 18 relates to what he said was a threat from the SD 20 board to hire external applicants for over 20 temporary teaching posi-tions. Our contract did not have any language preventing that.

Undying gratitude for a brave and compassionate act was expressed lately by a Glade couple. Alex and Lorna Sherstobitoff formally and publicly furthered their thanks to Chris OGorman for saving Alexs life on June 10. http://www.castlegarnews.com/news/262615611.htmlChris is a very brave man, states the brief notice brought in on June 12.

A man at the centre of a wild series of incidents at the West Kootenay Regional Air-port in mid-February has had his latest appearance in Nel-son Law Courts last week.
Vehicles were damaged and
a man seriously injured in the disturbance begun in the early morning hours of Feb-ruary 16, as Aaron Nicholas Welch, 29 went on a frighten-ing rampage at the Ootische-nia-located airport. He has subsequently received guilty verdicts (on May 13) for four of those charges which had
included robbery, aggravated assault and resisting/obstruct-ing a police officer.
An appearance on June 10 set the date for a pre-sentence report and sentencing hearing concerning the offender.
Welchs next appearance is set for August 18 in Nelson Law Courts.

BE WATER WISE THIS SUMMER!
SPRINKLING REGULATIONS 2014FOR RESIDENTS OF CASTLEGAR, BLUEBERRY AND LUCAS ROAD
Summer can present special problems for Castlegar's water system. During the summer season, daily residential water use can increase by as much as 200% primarily because of lawn and garden watering as well as car washing.
Our residential water is pumped from the Arrow Lakes to reservoirs, from which water is supplied to residents. Excessive sprinkling during summer months reduces the water contained in our reservoirs. Even if the system has adequate supply, it may not be able to pump the water fast enough during this peak demand period to maintain storage for firefighting purposes.
Castlegar is attempting to stop the increase in water usage by restricting use during the summer months. This year citizens are being asked to sprinkle on odd or even days, according to their residential address. Watering will be permitted from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. each day.
Residents who use a water regulating system (e.g. timers and underground sprinkler system with timers)shall be exempted from the regulations, providing they do their outdoor watering between the hours of11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. on an alternating day basis. The reasoning behind this exemption is that timers and underground sprinkling systems allow the user to water during the coolest part of the day, hence less water is required and their sprinkling times should be shorter. Please advise City Hall at 365-7227 if you have a water regulating system.
A fine of $50.00 will be levied for non-compliance to the water regulations. However, under special circumstances, an exemption permit can be obtained at City Hall, 460 Columbia Avenue during regular office hours. Reasons for exemption include the following: a new residential lawn, a means of controllingdust, watering within a construction or building project.
EFFECTIVE JUNE 15 TO SEPTEMBER 15, 2014
SPRINKLING AND CAR WASHINGIS PERMITTED BETWEEN THE HOURS OF
5:00 A.M. TO 11:00 A.M. AND 5:00 P.M. TO 11:00 P.M.
Water Sprinkling is Restricted to Every Second Day
(a) Residents at odd number addresses water on odd number calendar days; and(b) Residents at even number addresses water on even number calendar days.
