New Truck For GRVFD

New Fire Truck

Jerry West
The Record

July 29 was a good day for Gold River’s Fire Department as their new truck was delivered. The much improved model will replace the oldest truck which has been in service since 1975, and will be retired. This leaves the department with two large pumpers, the older one dating back to the 1990s.

Fire Chief Ric Begon is impressed and excited with the new truck, which meets up to date safety standards, has many new features which improve the capabilities of the department to respond to fires. The increased ability to spread foam retardant and more effectively contain the fire area, and an enhanced ladder retrieval system which makes it much easier for the crew to remove the ladder from the truck are but two of the improvements. This is a real benefit to a department where often there are only a few members able to respond for initial attack on a fire.

Ric praised Doug Cross for his role in procuring the new truck. Doug spent hundreds of hours researching equipment to ensure that the department acquired a truck that would best meet its needs.

More photos in the digital edition of The Record coming soon.

A HUGE Cold Prickly to the Flower Thief!

Legion flowers

To the heartless person or persons who took one of the beautiful hanging baskets from the Gold River Legion.  This was a volunteer project spearheaded by residents simply wanting to spruce things up a bit for the Legion which gives generously to our community.

What a way to put a ‘downer’ on such a beautiful sentiment.  Stealing from the Legion – Karma saw you!

Dear CEO of Grieg Seafoods – Alexandra Morton

 To all whom receive this you have my permission to circulate it.  -Alexandra Morton

July 24, 2014
Morten Vike
CEO Grieg Seafood
Bergen, Norway

 

Dear Morten Vike:

Over the past few weeks I have received reports of large numbers of dying salmon in your farms in the beautiful Nootka Sound, Gold River region of British Columbia, Canada. So I visited the area.

Mort bins Grieg

The stench around your farms is overwhelming and may have prompted the many reports to me. This is an area of pristine wilderness where many enjoy their summers. Your mort bins are heaped full and sinking the float low in the water and this has apparently been going on for weeks.

Via Wikipedia:  Alexandra Bryant Morton is an independent biologist who settled in Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation in British Columbia, Canada to study wild orca (killer whales) in 1984. Morton made her home in Echo Bay – a community without roads, electricity or stores. In 1987 salmon farms moved into the region. At first Morton thought they were a good idea, but within a few years the changes to the archipelago became a concern to the people in the region. Since then Alexandra Morton has published extensively on the impact of salmon farms on whales and salmon. As the industry grew into 27 Norwegian salmon farms, her community died, the school closed, whales left, toxic algae blooms began, Atlantic salmon were found in Pacific rivers, sea lice infestations of wild salmon began and Morton dedicated her life to protecting her home from salmon farms. Morton’s work was featured on 60 Minutes.

Gold River Legion Beautification Coming Along Nicely

Update: Grace reports that they will be at the Legion around 10am this morning, Sat, July 19th to do some planting if anyone would be willing to come and help!

Grace Hoffman reports that they are making great progress with this project, and that they are just waiting for the weather to cool as well as the dirt for the planters so we can finish planting.

Legion1 Legion2 Legion3

The flower boxes are finished, and next they have two benches (donated by Tony and Darlene Reeves and refinished by Jack Wilander), soon to be placed by the flower boxes in front of the Legion.  The next step will be to get some volunteers to step forward and help with painting around the lampposts and repainting the parking lot.   Grace advises that they won’t have gravel and soil for another week or so as the owners of the pit have gone on holiday.  Once things all fall into place, physical help will definitely be needed!

Please contact Grace or Bob @ 283- 7511 OR the Legion @ 283- 2516 for more information!

We will be losing their daughter Sheila and her family (big sad face here at the Buzz) at the beginning of August, so we’d better get out there and help Grace & Bob as much as we can!
