WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT "PARENTAL ALIENATION"? Most of us have seen a friend or family member’s marriage go bust in a bitter divorce. Sometimes the couple’s children are victims in their parents’ ongoing conflict long after the break-up. One parent, often the primary caregiver, may influence the kids to take sides and subtly turn them against the other parent.

the girls up from a church drop-off, or was to take them after school, he couldn’t because they ran away. They also refused to see him during a court-ordered holiday access. When interviewed by a psychologist, both children expressed strong negative views of their father, but positive ones of their mother.

Undermining the kids’ relationship with the other parent, even unintentionally, damages children’s emotional and psychological wellbeing and is contrary to the Family Law Act. This phenomenon is called “parental alienation” and may lead to children not wanting to see or have anything to do with that other parent. When a child’s previously close relationship with both parents turns sour with one parent without good reason, that’s a hallmark of parental alienation.

Colin thus asked the court for a “custody reversal order” and other orders to help resolve the problem.

Our BC Supreme Court recently had to deal with parental alienation. Colin and Claire (all names changed) had two kids, Mary and Becky, born in 2000 and 2002. The couple separated in 2008 and divorced three years later. Both parents were intelligent and capable individuals who loved their children, and they agreed to equal parenting arrangements. The court subsequently gave them joint custody and joint guardianship of the kids and ordered a three-day alternating parenting schedule, later changed by Colin and Claire to a five-day alternating schedule. These arrangements worked well initially, but over time the kids became increasingly reluctant to spend time with their dad. One example: in late 2011 when Claire dropped Becky off to see Colin, Becky ran back to her mom’s car, buckled herself in and refused to come out for half an hour despite her dad’s pleading. By 2013, when Colin was to pick

The court concluded the children were a product of parental alienation – their negative feelings and rejection of their dad was significantly out of line with their actual experience with him. Both Mary and Becky suffered from emotional and mental health problems – the older girl from depression and suicidal thoughts, her younger sister from an anxiety disorder and anger issues. The focus in such cases is on the best interests of the children long-term. The court intervened in an effort to undo the girls’ alienation from their dad, to foster their future relationship with both parents and to minimize emotional damage. Colin got sole guardianship, interim custody and primary residence of the two girls for the time being, and Claire was to have no direct or indirect access to them. Claire, Colin and the children also had to enroll in a family reunification program for a year (the program’s director would make regular progress reports to the court). Parental alienation situations are complex, and each case requires a unique solution. It’s important you act quickly and get legal and other help promptly if you’re caught up in such a conflict-ridden situation.

The Fishing Report March saw some mixed weather patterns rolling in, so our days were hit and miss. We did spend a lot of time on the rivers chasing early spring bull trout and we had a blast. The jet sled proved itself very helpful this spring on the rivers so far. The Kootenay river and other tributaries are full of bulls in the spring, and when the ice came off, we began to target these fish. Bulls chasing spawning whitefish were pretty aggressive this year. Bull trout between 6 and 12 lbs were caught on a daily basis. A lot of fun was had by all who braved the early spring weather conditions. And the end results were very rewarding. We’re looking forward to the fall bull trout fishery as the bulls chase spawning kokanee up the rivers again in the fall. What’s coming up: We are expecting the lake fishing to pick up even more as the water gets warmer, so expect lots of fish in April, May, and June. Our river fishing should only get better and better as well. As the weather warms up and the bugs start hatching, the fish will become more and more aggressive. Looking forward to the next few months of fishing. We are also looking forward to our upcoming salmon/halibut fishing season. That about sums it up. Hope this helps with your fishing excursions this month. Tight lines! Submitted by Kerry Reed, Reel Adventures Sportfishing PAGE 16

Critical Mass Bike Ride Local volunteers are again organizing a Critical Mass Bike Ride coming up in Nelson, and the big bike ride this year has the theme: People power a clean energy future! Bikes Not Pipes is taking to the streets at noon in front of Nelson Civic Theatre on Front Street Saturday, May 2 for the second annual Critical Mass Bike Ride. The ride will go down Baker Street through Nelson and wind up with a rally at Lakeside Park shortly after 1 pm. The volunteer Bikes Not Pipes group is asking everyone to bring signs, noisemakers, loud voices, music and banners, and dress up to make the ride another great and exciting event. One of the slogans for the Critical Mass Ride is “Be Radical. VOTE!” The federal election is scheduled for October 19, but could come much earlier. We are encouraging everyone to vote. Cycling and environmental activists have been holding critical mass bike rides around the world to push for more attention to healthy, non-fossil fuel transportation, like bikes. For information and posters check the Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC page on Facebook.

Jumbo Update Spring 2015 Recently I learned the following from my government contact person. All avalanche experts from government, the proposed Jumbo Resort and the Ministry of Transportation have submitted their findings to the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO). The use of outdated avalanche maps caused the confusion concerning the contentious relocation of the day lodge foundation. Th EAO has completed its analysis of the avalanche reports and is using them to decide if there is a substantial start to the resort and then possibly give the permanent certificate. The EAO may release their decision(s) by the end of April. Submitted by Rowena Eloise

Spring Has Sprung! Give Your Brain A Tune-Up What can I do to make sure I won’t get Alzheimer’s disease? It’s a question we hear all the time. While age is the biggest risk factor, it’s been estimated that up to 50 percent of cases of Alzheimer’s disease worldwide may be the result of these lifestyle factors: - diabetes - high blood pressure - obesity - smoking - depression - physical inactivity The good news? You can do something to lower the risk no matter your age. While there are no guarantees, making simple lifestyle changes will help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. On top of that, they help maintain good brain health as you age as well as fight off other diseases. Here are eight tips that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. Grab some almonds or blueberries for your mid-afternoon snack. The anti-oxidants in blueberries are healthy for both your brain and heart, and almonds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids that help fuel your brain. It’s never too late to quit smoking! New evidence shows that smokers are at a 45 percent higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than non-smokers. But even ex-smokers can reduce their risk by not smoking. Brush your teeth with the other hand. Using your non-dominant hand will force your brain to relearn common activities in a new way and create new brain connections. Mastered brushing your teeth? Try eating with your other hand. cont’d on pg 6

Thor is a stoic, 5-year-old grey short haired male that came to the Trail Regional BCSPCA March 24th as a stray after a good Samaritan found him in Castlegar on the side of the road. He had been hit by a vehicle. After a visit to the vet, and some time to heal up, Thor is feeling much better about life. Thor is a very sweet, mellow cat that loves pets and attention, and just likes being with his people. He is a friendly guy that would love a home where he can relax, be loved, and not worry about defending himself on the streets. A cat only has nine lives, right? If you would like to meet Thor, come visit the Trail Regional BCSPCA or call 250-368-5910 if you have any questions.

Brain Tune-Up cont’d

from pg 29

Are you drinking enough water? Your brain needs water to function efficiently. Without it, we often have difficulty focusing or remembering. Health Canada doesn’t recommend a daily amount, but drink water regularly to stay hydrated, and carry a water bottle with you when you’re on the go. Stay on track with an activity buddy. People who exercise with a buddy are more likely to stay active than those who work out alone. So, choose a friend, family member or co-worker. They’ll keep you motivated and make physical activity more fun. Join a book club. Book clubs are a great way to meet new people and stay socially connected. Check your local library for club listings. Better yet, start your own club! Wear a helmet. Mounting research shows that head traumas and repetitive concussions are linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why it’s important to protect your head at any age. Whether you’re cycling or on a motorbike, playing a contact sport, or skiing, make sure to wear a helmet. Tap into the power of music. Research shows that listening to calming music, especially slow, classical music, has a relaxing effect on the body. It slows the pulse and heart rate and lowers blood pressure. If you’re not a fan of classical, a playlist of nature sounds can also be very soothing. If you’re looking to blow off some steam, rocking out to upbeat music and singing along is a great way to release tension. HAVE AN ARTICLE OF LOCAL INTEREST?

Local ... Knowledgeable ... Professional

We work for you – insuring your best interest! We recently bought a new home and worked with Nancy Trotman of Centum Mortgage in order to obtain financing/mortgage. Choosing Nancy as our mortgage broker was the best decision we made. Nancy is the quintessential professional but she’s always friendly, down-to-earth and extremely understanding. She is very knowledgeable and handled everything quickly and efficiently down to the last minor details. She often anticipated issues that were going to come up and that we needed to be aware of beforehand and she gave us invaluable advice on several issues. Because of Nancy’s hard work on our behalf, we were able to secure a mortgage at the best possible rate. In short, she was an absolute joy to work with! At a time associated with more than a little stress, we could always count on Nancy to minimize our anxiety and bring a smile to our faces. Thanks for that, Nancy! We would highly recommend her services. Erwin & Ursula P.

Canada Travel Sweepstakes Series Is Coming To Kaslo The global tourism spotlight will focus on the small community of Kaslo, British Columbia, for an entire month during the Pillow, Paddle & Putt Getaway Sweepstakes sponsored by and various local participating businesses. The Canada Travel Sweepstakes Series promotes and educates the public about communities throughout western and northern Canada during the spring season. The sweepstakes series is a marketing partnership campaign created by to work closely, hand-inhand, with local tourism operators in an effort to educate travelers around the world of the many, small and large, unique travel destinations located throughout Canada. “We want more people to take ownership of their vacations from top to bottom, from accommodation to activity and everything in-between. Booking with bulk hotel websites doesn’t get you that, doesn’t even come close to creating a vacation experience. Canada is a vacation experience destination. Communities like Kaslo provide a life time of experiences when you know what to do and where to go,” said Colin Girard (co founder of eh Canada Travel). “Our mind set, as tourism ambassadors, is to strengthen the connection between local and international travelers and Canadian communities using education and creating possibilities. This sweepstakes accomplishes that,” adds Greg Girard (brother of Colin and co founder of eh Canada Travel). The Pillow, Paddle & Putt Getaway Sweepstakes provides the winner with three nights of accommodations and three adventures in three days featuring local tourism operators in the region. The grand prize includes accommodations provided by True Blue Lodge, Kaslo, a kayaking or a SUP adventure with Kaslo Kayaking, a river rafting adventure with Lardeau River Adventures, Meadow Creek and 18 holes of golf with cart with the Balfour Golf Course, Balfour. To win, a person must access the entry form on the eh Canada Travel Facebook page or website. One can also enter from some of the Facebook pages and websites of the participating businesses. Contest runs from April 20 to May 20, 2015. The contest is open to all legal residents of Canada over the age of 21. The winner will be announced on or before May 25, 2015. Submitted by Greg Girard

The Cellar Notes Duo The Slocan Lake Gallery Society is hosting The Cellar Notes Duo featuring Jeff Faragher on cello, and Alex Nichol on double bass. The duo will be presenting a musical offering spanning four centuries and six cultures on Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30 pm at Memorial Hall in Silverton. Admission by donation. Jeff Faragher holds a Master Degree in Music Performance from McGill University and has pursued supplementary studies between academic years with internationally renowned cellists such as Janos Starker, Aldo Parisot and YoYo Ma. Jeff is a prodigious talent with an innovative spirit. Rather than a career in a major orchestra, Jeff has chosen a life in the Kootenays where he is free to explore the full range of musical possibilities. These include the position of Music Director of The Symphony of the Kootenays. Alex Nichol spent 25 years as an orchestral musician with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Halle Orchestra of Manchester, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra before moving to the Okanagan where he and his wife established Nichol Vineyard Winery. With retirement in 2006, his focus has returned to music-making. Submitted by Silverton Lake Gallery Society

Shari Ulrich Returns To The Old Castle Theatre Shari Ulrich returns to the Old Castle Theatre for a rare solo concert on Saturday, May 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have loved the Castle Theatre since the first time I played there with a reunion tour of the Pied Pumkin shortly after Dean and Lowell took it over, and am always thrilled to get to return. Castlegar plays a huge part in my musical history.â&#x20AC;? Shari is a two-time Juno Award winner and inductee into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, but is probably best known in the Kootenays as part of the fabled and beloved Pied Pumkin. Her career as a singer-songwriter and solo artist was launched in 1978 following touring North America with the Hometown Band. Her latest release Everywhere I Go, on Borealis Records, was engineered by her daughter Julia Graff. It is Shariâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth solo album and her twenty-first including her work with the UHF (Ulrich Henderson Forbes), BTU (Bentall, Taylor Ulrich) and the Bluegrass Supergroup The High Bar Gang. The album garnered her the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Songwriter of the Year in Ottawa this winter.
