In an emotional meeting that had one councillor in tears, Kutenai Landing has been given the go ahead once more. The vote went the same way it did last summer. Councillors Bob Adams, Deb Kozak, Ian Mason, Gord McAdams and Mayor John Dooley all voted to approve Kutenai Landing at their Monday, Sept. 8 meeting. Councillors Robin Cherbo and Margaret Stacey voted against the development. The vote came after council unanimously voted to abandon the alternative approval process (AAP) they had endorsed at their Monday, Aug. 25 meeting. The AAP would have gone ahead only if 10 per cent of Nelson voters filled out response forms asking for a referendum on Kutenai Landing. At the time, Dooley had said

cried at one point. After the meeting, she said she was frustrated by the lack of time to deal with the matter. Delaying a decision would open the City to liability to the developer, New Future Building Group, Kozak said. That liability could include expenses New Future incurred in bringing the project forward such as permits and legal counsel, said Kozak. “Not that he said that he would, but he would be within his rights to pursue compensation.” Kozak also said the developer could have gone ahead and built a number of buildings on the land as it was currently zoned and the City would not have gained anything. The City negotiated for improvements to the water and sewer systems, public park space, an affordable housing contribution and assisted living spaces for seniors. See related story on page 3.

Low risk letter challenged Province-issued document that allows Kutenai Landing to begin construction appealed by Darryl Secret by Chris Shepherd Another legal challenge has been thrown at Kutenai Landing, this time via the province’s approval of the developer’s clean up strategy. David Aaron, a local lawyer, filed an appeal with the Environmental Appeal Board – an independent agency that hears appeals of decisions by the Ministry of Environment – on Tuesday, Sept. 2 for Darryl Secret. This is Aaron’s second legal attack on Kutenai Landing. In June of this year, Aaron filed an injunction against the City of Nelson on behalf of the Nelson Citizen Empowerment Society (NCES). Secret is president of NCES but the society is not involved in this latest legal challenge. While the injunction never went to court, it did force Nelson’s council to repeal the bylaw

Food Cupboard looking for directors
The Food Cupboard Society is looking for people to join its board of directors. The board of directors is responsible for the governance of the society and is involved in operations to some degree. All interested individuals are invited to contact the Nelson Food Cupboard by Monday, Sept. 15 to express interest. New board members will be elected at the society’s annual general Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 7 p.m. in the Fairview Room of the Nelson United Church.

A low risk letter is a document the Ministry of Environment can issue to a developer that wants to work on contaminated land. The letter is used to ensure the appropriate clean-up procedures are followed for the land. “There are things about the site remediation that my client is uncomfortable with,” Aaron said. Namely, Aaron says the low risk letter was issued when the site at 110 Cedar Street was not tested for herbicides. Aaron was referring to statements at the Kutenai Landing public hearing on Tuesday, Aug. 19 by a former project supervisor for the Ministry of Environment. That former ministry official said he had seen herbicides dumped at the site over a five-year period. Vince Hanemayer, a senior contaminated sites officer for the Ministry of

Environment, issued the low risk letter in July 2008. That letter approved New Future’s plan to excavate the parkade and foundation for the first phase of the condominium and clean up any contamination it found. In the letter, Hanemayer wrote
that New Future must retain a qualified environmental consultant – New Future has been working with Pottinger Gaherty Environmental Consultants – and carry out a site investigation and remediation for the phase one area before building the above-
ground structures. In documents submitted to the Environmental Appeal Board, Aaron has asked for the low risk letter to be voided. Without the letter, the City of Nelson cannot issue a building permit for the foundation and parkade.

News Kutenai Landing soil questions unanswered Rural farmer raises questions about where site material will go by Chris Shepherd Revelations that contaminated soil from an earlier development in Nelson was dumped on agricultural land has raised questions about where soil from Kutenai Landing would go if the development is approved. At the Tuesday, Aug. 19 public hearing on Kutenai Landing, Lynda Burch spoke to council about her experience two years ago. A farmer near Pass Creek, Burch noticed truck loads of material being dumped on a neighbour’s land in October 2005. The dump trucks came for six days and left hundreds of loads of material, Burch says. She and her husband made repeated inquiries to various authorities about where the material was coming from and it
wasn’t until they talked with the dump truck drivers and learned the soil was from excavations at John’s Walk. Burch says she was concerned about the impact that material might have on the water sources in the area. She says she has some experience around issues of agricultural land. Burch is a retired agricultural chemist and once sat on a committee that reviewed zoning requests for property in the Agricultural Land Reserve. The Regional District of Central Kootenay became involved and eventually approved the soil deposit in July 2006. According to minutes from that meeting, approval was subject to confirmation of approval from the Agricultural Land Commission.
The commission approved the RDCK’s move in August 2006. But Burch is concerned there was no follow up by the various authorities and says her experience shook her faith in the ability of government to protect the land. She’s worried material in the deposited soil might affect the watershed. She, along with many people in the area, draw their water from shallow wells. “My concern is this would contaminate our water supply.” At the August public hearing, Burch asked where soil excavated from Kutenai Landing would go. “It doesn’t stop when the excavator is done digging,” Burch says. “The soil goes somewhere.” Mike Rink, spokesman for New Future Building Group, was unavailable to comment.
Harvest Rescue looks for pickers As the fruit trees all begin to ripen, the Harvest Rescue program seeks volunteer fruit pickers to bring in the harvest. Over the next month there will be many apples, pears, plums, and possibly a few nut trees. This summer has been busy for the Nelson Food Cupboard, who oversees the Harvest Rescue Program. Urban gardeners have contributed fresh vegetables and fruit through the Grow A Row program, as well as a couple of the local fruit stands. People with fruit trees and more fruit they can handle can register with Harvest Rescue. Volunteers will pick the fruit before it is too ripe. Once picked, the fruit is divided into thirds.
Briefly Terry Fox Run
One third goes to the tree owner, one third to the volunteers and one third to the Nelson Food Cupboard Society. Food donations may be dropped off at the Nelson Food Cupboard Mondays and Wednesdays between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., and
Thursday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. To register fruit trees or to become a volunteer, call Yasmin at (250) 551-8343 or e-mail email@example.com. The Harvest Rescue Program runs until mid October. – submitted

Thank you for the awesome pride celebration
Editorial The community is still split over Kutenai Landing We don’t want to see any more waterfront development happen without there being a clear waterfront plan. This is mandated by our Official Community Plan. We don’t want to see our community divided by not knowing what the majority wants. That is what happened this week when council approved Kutenai Landing. People for the condominiums said the majority of the community were with them. People against the condominiums said the majority were on their side. We all hear what our friends think and not what the entire community thinks. Council’s decision on Monday night was intended to unify the community and give us something to build on, but without some concrete evidence from a referendum or reasonable measure of public opinion, each side will think they are right and that the other side was wrong. In this instance, those opposed to Kutenai Landing will feel betrayed by those members of council who voted for the development and that will certainly spill over into this fall’s municipal elections. To stop this rift from getting larger, council must put a moratorium on all development on the waterfront until a detailed waterfront plan is adopted into the Official Community Plan (OCP). Few have disagreed with the need for a waterfront plan. The 1993 OCP called for its creation and the 2008 OCP repeats that call. City staff should begin work on this plan immediately. It would be prudent for council to also task staff with finding out if there is a community that has a workable structure in place to gather public opinion. In matters where there is no easy answer as to what the public wants, a concrete measure of public opinion would be helpful. In situations where sentiment clearly support one position, a councillor’s duty would be clear – to follow that sentiment. There could still be times when public sentiment wasn’t cut and dried. In those instances where the community is split 50-50, then it would fall to the leaders to vote with their hearts and minds. But gathering the public’s input on contentious issues should be the first priority when determining the future of a community. That was omitted this week.
Dear editor, I want to thank all of the people who helped make the 12th annual Gay Pride Parade and weekend an overwhelming success. It occurred to me as I marched in the parade Saturday and was moved to tears many times by the overwhelming cheers of support from the parade watchers that gay pride is
good for the entire community of Nelson. While it seemed like the actual parade had dwindled in numbers, the support from the community has grown, empowering us all in the process. I would like to especially acknowledge Johanah Faber who jumped in at the last minute to assure Gay Pride happened.
Without her fortitude, drive and passion we would not have had a pride this year and that would have been a huge loss to us all. Thanks Johanah. I for one, will help you next year. Nancy Rosenblum, Nelson

What issue do you want to see candidates debate?
Small run-of-the-river hydro projects emit no carbon Dear editor, Corky Evans talks up his postcard campaign saying private power is new. He wants small hydro development in B.C. stopped for a big debate. Fortis is a privately owned power company. The NDP government could have built small hydro: they blew one billion dollars on the ferries they threw away. Water has been a slogan in the Kootenays for as long as I’ve lived here, and the politics has ignored that the water comes from the atmosphere. People have thought an unlogged watershed can remain “pristine” while the atmosphere is blithely used by everyone as a garbage dump. It’s been a mistake.
As global climate change can be denied no longer, this “no life without water” mantra has as much meaning as the mutterings of the crazed general in Dr. Strangelove about “our precious bodily fluids.” This campaign demanding all projects must be shut down, supported by lies such as the water is being sold, that disputes whether run of the river hydro is even green, that claims private power is a new concept needs to be rethought. Hard decisions need to be made. Small run-of-the-river hydro projects emit no carbon. David Lewis, Crescent Valley

Kekeni: The red fish of the Kootenays Kokanee salmon are a reminder of life’s circuitous nature. Their bright scales flash over river rocks as they nose their way upstream to spawn. With pearly red eggs left in the gravel, the cold current lays their exhausted forms across the riverbank.

Kokanee production is critical to many species in the Kootenay Lake ecosystem including ospreys, great blue herons, grizzly bears and large fish such as white sturgeon, Gerrard rainbow trout and bull trout. A large Gerrard rainbow trout will, for example, consume about two kokanee daily throughout the year. While the open house is for one day only, Meadow Creek Spawning Channel is open to the public for the entire kokanee spawning run which usually lasts from late August to early October. Lots of fish, however, can attract lots of other wildlife including grizzly bears, so if there is unusually high bear activity, the channel may be closed to the public for periods of a time. For the latest information on closures, the size of the kokanee run, or questions about the open house, visit www.fwcp.ca or call (250) 352-6874. – submitted

Briefly 13th Annual Fat Tire Festival
Nelson Leaf Jeremy Van Troyen, in the dark uniform, tries to thread the puck past the Grand Forks Border Bruins in Leaf’s third pre-season game. Van Troyen was stopped that time but the Leafs went on to win 9-2.
Strong start for Leafs Nelson Leafs win all four pre-season games by George Millar At $8, a ticket to a Nelson Leafs hockey game is one of the best entertainment values in town. With four exhibition games behind them, and a record of 4-0, the local Juniors open their regular season on the road against Castlegar on Friday, Sept. 12. Saturday, the Leafs host the Revelstoke Grizzlies. Last year, both the Leafs and the Grizzlies won divisional titles in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, with 73 points each. If both teams have rebuilt to the calibre of last year’s squads, the game promises to be a close contest. Coach Simon Wheeldon enjoys the
challenge of seeing players develop their game to the point where they move to a higher level of play. Nelson has nine veterans returning from last year, including Torin “Bruiser” Brusven, who was named the KIJHL’s best defenceman last year. Bruiser will be busy, as all the other blueliners are first-year men. Simon says that the KIJHL, a Junior B league, is becoming recognised as the best of its kind in B.C. That would make it easy to pick up players who get cut by Junior A teams. But Simon and his coaching staff believe that their loyalty to the players who make the team during training camp develops a reciprocal loyalty from the players.
One aspect of the Wheeldon-coached editions of the Leafs is a commitment to positional play, discipline and hard work. Junior B hockey across the province is working to rid itself of the “Jungle B” moniker, and the Leafs are leading the way. Stupid penalties are not acceptable, the coach says. Fighting hasn’t disappeared, but its frequency has been drastically reduced. The seating capacity of the Nelson and District Community Complex is 1,300. During the excitement of playoff runs, sold-out standing-room only crowds have happened. But despite the quality of play, some regular season games have seen fewer than 500 paying customers.
Friday, Sept. 12 to Sunday, Sept. 14 The festival celebrates the sport of mountain biking with cross-country and downhill events. This funfilled family festival provides an opportunity for riders of all ages to celebrate biking in the mountains with cross-country and downhill events. Fat Tire Fest kicks off on Friday, Sept. 12, 5:30 p.m. with the traditional costume parade leaving from Gericks Cycle and Sport in Nelson. Unveiled last year, the improved cross country course will inspire riders of all abilities with 17 km and 40 km routes starting from the Selkirk College Silverking Campus on Saturday. Little rippers will get their opportunity to hit the trails on Sunday with events for kids aged three to 12, at Morning Mountain. It is Sunday’s downhill events at Morning Mountain (just west of Nelson) that get everyone talking. Three racers go head to head snaking down the old Blewett Ski Hill, hitting burms and jumps along the way. The action packed day will thrill riders and spectators alike with races, demos, tunes and food. For more information, or to register for events, check out the Nelson Cycling website at www. nelsoncyclingclub.org, or speak to the folks at Gericks Cycle and Sport in Nelson. To volunteer, contact event coordinator Paula Owen at Gericks – (250) 354-4622 – or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. – submitted

Rolling royalty Queen City Cruise draws crowds and cruisers to Nelson by Chris Shepherd

Athlete’s foot: Causes and some natural options to help you deal with it Athlete’s foot, as it’s commonly referred to, is a parasitic fungal infection of the skin of the foot. If you suffer from a persistent scaling, flaking and itching of the skin on your feet this may be the reason. Often the scaling and flaking can also progress to blisters or cracked skin that will lead to exposed raw tissue, pain, and inflammation. Athlete’s foot or tinea pedis can be unrelenting in its presence and very difficult to banish long term. Tinea pedis can be caused by several different fungi. It is generally caused by a mould, but sometimes a yeast, that grows on the skin and then into the skin itself causing a fungal infection. Athlete’s foot can be transmitted from person to person. This generally occurs in moist environments such as pools and showers or by sharing footwear with someone who has the fungal infection. To prevent or manage the infection, be sure to keep feet and footwear as dry as possible. Make sure to wash your towels, bath mats, bedsheets and socks in hot water at least once a week if possible. If you have an infection, use a separate towel to dry the infected area so that it doesn’t spread to other parts of your body. Tea tree oil can be helpful in treating athlete’s foot. It contains terpinen-4-ol which is said to have antimicro-
bial activity (kills fungi) and can help stop the itching. Aloe Vera can help soothe the skin as well as kill the fungus. Onion, garlic and vinegar are also said to be effective in treating athlete’s foot by killing fungi. Soaking the feet in epsom salts or sprinkling baking soda in shoes can be helpful. Chinese herbal medicinals can also be very effective – a combination of different anti-fungal herbs can be combined to create a helpful foot soak.

21st Century Health Challenge
Wednesday, Sept. 24 to Wednesday, Nov. 12, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Staying healthy in the 21st Century can be a challenge. A stressful lifestyle, our over-consumption of processed foods and the increasing toxicity of the world have made health something we can no longer take for granted. The 21st Century Health Challenge is a supervised and guided eight-week detoxification, rejuvenation and weight loss program. The cleansing process challenges participants to stabilize their lifestyles and metabolisms; to improve digestion through simpler eating habits; to remove candida and parasites from the intestines; to rebuild the liver so that it can detoxify itself and the rest of the body, including the lymphatic system, gall bladder, and kidneys. The course includes a 200-page manual and a cook book at costs $245. There will be a two-hour presentation, every Wednesday night. Contact Dr. Michael Smith (traditional Chinese medicine) at (250) 352-0459 for more information.

HOMES & GARDENS
Use smell to set the right tone for your home Most of my “Nest Building” work focuses on visual, tangible elements. However, attention to the sense of smell is also important in creating atmosphere, setting mood and evoking memories. Most of us recall at least one happy moment from childhood based on smell – grandma’s baking, the seaside, or a musty old closet full of treasures. A passing whiff of one of those triggers and the entire memory comes rushing in. You can create background fragrances in your home without chemical contraptions plugged into electrical outlets, or dry, dusttrapping bowls of withered petals.
Start by cleaning your home’s palate. Set out a small cup of baking soda, or vanilla extract to neutralize odours. In extreme instances, use an air ionizer. It generates negative ions that latch onto positively charged airborne particles, such as bacteria, mould, smoke, and allergens. Once bonded the heavier particles fall to the floor and can be vacuumed up and removed. There are many safe ways to refresh your home’s bouquet while fighting germs. Peppermint oil misted through a room on a hot, humid day helps us breath easier and feel cool. Lavender oil promotes relaxation. Herbal smudges have
been used for centuries. Try burning a little rosemary in an ashtray. Fragrant cedar is oldfashioned but enduring. A small cedar egg placed in your ‘smalls’ drawer is delightful. Use lemons for cleaning, or brew a few peelings on the stovetop for a fresh summery scent. My most recent discovery is crystallized amber. A small piece placed on a heating vent provides a sweet aroma whenever the furnace comes on. Smells are a subtle part of life that often go ignored unless they are conspicuously foul. But, don’t overdo it. A little scent goes a long way and takes root in our memories for the rest of our lives.
Herbal smudges have been used for centuries to clear the air.

Native plant landscaping
Saturday, Sept. 13, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at The Kootenay Gallery of Art, History and Science, 120 Heritage Way, Castlegar The Land Conservancy of BC and The Kootenay Gallery of Art, Science & History is presenting a a free workshop with ethnobotanist Michael Keefer. Keefer will present a slideshow on the art of native plant landscaping, the wonderful world of edible and medicinal plants, as well as a brief discussion on fire ecology. A short walk on the nearby Selkirk College’s interpretive trail will allow for an up-close and personal look at what may be found in the West Kootenay landscape. This
workshop will end with a brief dialogue on how to keep edibles green with garden watering techniques such as drip irrigation. Keefer (MSc, PAg) is an ethnoecologist who specializes in ecological restoration, revegetation and ethnobotany. He has worked extensively with the Ktunaxa Kinbasket First Nation and helped establish Aqam Native Plant Nursery (renamed Tipi Mountain). In response to a need for education and community involvement in developing principles of water conservation and land stewardship, the Kootenay Gallery is developing a Community Demonstration Xeriscape Garden and Habitat Restoration project.
