Harvest Rescue finds home for excess local produce by Anna Kirkpatrick Summer is here and Nelson’s backyards are full of fresh produce. The Food Cupboard’s Harvest Rescue Project is preparing once again to harvest and distribute excess fruits and vegetables. Yasmin Maliel, coordinator of the project, is excited by the opportunity to make use of produce that would otherwise go to waste. The project involves a three-way partnership between Nelson-area homeowners, community volunteers and the Food Cupboard. Homeowners with fruit trees can contact Maliel who will arrange to have volunteer pickers harvest the fruit. The harvest is usually divided three ways, with the homeowner, volunteers and the Food Cupboard each getting a share. In past years, the project has harvested a wide range of produce including berries, cherries, peaches, plums, apples, pears and nuts. Maliel notes that while homeowners can offer wormy

cheries, these will not be donated to the Food Cupboard. Maliel is also encouraging locals with extra garden space to grow a row for the Food Cupboard. She says that produce of any kind would be appreciated but that root vegetables would be particularly welcome. Homeowners who decide to grow an extra row can simply drop off the produce when it is harvested. The Harvest Rescue Project is now in its forth year. According to Maliel, the support from the community is encouraging. “There is a lot of generosity in the community,” says Maliel. Support for the project has come in various ways. Fruit stands and farms have donated produce. Volunteers have assisted with harvesting. Homeowners have offered their excess garden produce. The Harvest Rescue Project provides benefits to the community on a number of levels. It helps reduce bear attractants, avoids waste and makes

nutritious food available for those who need it the most. Maliel says her clients deeply appreciate having access to healthy food. “The final outcome is that there are people who are less fortunate who can get a taste of food that is nourishing and alive,” says Maliel. Maliel is currently looking for volunteers for a variety of tasks. Ideally, volunteers who want to help harvest fruit would posess a vehicle and the ability to transport a ladder, though this is not essential. Maliel is also looking for offers of compost space and for extra garden produce. Homeowners who wish to have their fruit trees harvested (even if that harvest is still some time away) should contact Maliel as soon as possible. Produce can be dropped at the Food Cupboard during open hours, Monday and Wednesday 9am-12pm and Thursday 12pm-2pm. People can also contact Maliel to arrange a dropoff time, 250-551-8343 or harvestrescue@gmail. com.

Artists tour Nelson with cardboard cutout What is a tourist and how accurate are their experiences? “travelfreetravel” is a new transatlantic collaboration between artists Bernardine Carroll in Ireland and Maggie Shirley in Canada. The two artists will take up dual residence in art galleries in their native countries during June and July to develop collaborative work that examines the notion of prescribed experiences of tourists in real tourist locales. Through their unconventional travel agency they intend to pilot their participants on fanciful adventures via the Internet and its wondrous facilities. This multi-disciplinary project will provide tourist experiences and exchanges using a diverse array of media ranging from the technical tools of Skype and video links to more direct formats of handbuilding, public interaction and conversation. Through these media, they will take their internet-faring tourists to real

and imagined places, sidestepping the vastness of seas and oceans, impervious to economic and ecological issues and flouting the unsmiling realities of borders and guns. Bernardine Carroll and Maggie Shirley both graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2008. Bernardine is currently pursuing a Masters programme in Art in Public in University of Ulster, Belfast. Working within a relational sphere she has exhibited and initiated various projects throughout Ireland over the past number of years. Maggie returned to Canada and is now working at the Banff New Media Institute (The Banff Centre). Her current work is based on thematic research into gender, the human body and technology, primarily taking the form of performance and installation. For more information call Bernardine Carroll at +353 86 0646 926 or Maggie Shirley at +403 431 1807 or 250 352 6322. - Submitted

Boat safe, boat sober and have fun this summer Ahhh summer time is finally here. Sunshine, beaches, barbecues, patios, outdoor festivals….gotta love it! We are so lucky here in the Kootenay-Boundary to have such beautiful summer weather with lakes and rivers to cool off in. Unfortunately, summer is also a time of increased risk for alcohol-related accidents and injuries. Statistics show that alcohol sales increase significantly over the summer and so do car accidents, boating accidents and drownings. Ask most people about drinking and driving and they will tell you it’s dangerous and that they take steps to avoid it by having a designated drives, taking a taxi or not drinking when they are driving. Interestingly, many of those same people don’t think twice about drinking when they operate a boat or ride a jet ski. According to the Canadian Red Cross:

ple who drown are not tested for blood-alcohol content. Combining alcohol and boating is far more dangerous than most people realize. Fatigue, sun, wind and motion of the boat can dull the senses and alcohol intensifies these effects. The result is decreased reaction time, decreased fine motor skills and impaired judgment. Think its okay to have a few drinks while boating as long as you are not operating it? Think again. If you are a passenger in a boat, remember that alcohol will impair your balance and increase your chances of falling overboard. This danger, compounded by alcohol’s effects on your swimming ability, is a common cause of drowning. Many people enjoy cold beer or frosty cocktails during our beautiful KootenayBoundary summers.

Summer fun with the grandkids My mother-in-law is coming to visit. With all that that sentence implies, one thing is for sure, my daughter is really looking forward to it. She has been counting the sleeps till Grandma and Grandpa get here and will probably cry when they leave. No matter what my feelings are, the truth is that the grandparent grandchild relationship is a very special, very important relationship, and one that is becoming increasingly rare or disjointed. Both my husband’s and my family live out East. Like so many of us in the Kootenays, we see our families once a year, maybe once every other year. We no longer live in the same town or even the same province as our parents. We move, they move, we all live our own lives. Our extended family usually includes friends and their children, our family holidays increasingly are celebrated with neighbors, not kin. But our children still want and crave that spe-

Opinions & Letters Editorial Rename Elephant Mountain

I mean rename Elephant mountain to Elephant Mountain. If you look on a map, you will discouver, the giant rock that overlooks the community of Nelson, is called “Mount Nelson”. I have nothing against the name Nelson. I actually think it is a very nice name. It is just that everyone here calls it Elephant Mountain, and I am all for majority wins. It takes awhile to see the big beast, but there she is. Once you have seen her, you will always see her. Pulpit rock is her tusk and to the far right is her tail. She is lieing down on her side, almost as if she is getting ready to nurse the community of Nelson. I am guessing she is a she because I can’t find her genitals. The locals will never stop calling her Elephant Mountain. The maps must be changed. We know better. Besides, The City of Nelson’s name is enough of a sign of respect to Hugh Nelson, who she is named after. I am not sure what Mount Nelson was called before she was mislabeled as that. Perhaps we could be enlightened. On another note, we, at The EXPRESS, wish our editor Chris and wife Crystal all the best as they have recently tied the knot. Personally, when I look at them and see how they look at each other, I can not help but be the most optimistic person when I see the love in their eyes. I also look forward to him getting back to work. Nelson Becker Publisher

Power plans need common sense To the Editor: I visit your town nearly every year. I enjoy the golf, the hot springs and the coffee shop across from the paddle wheeler---and then there is the scenery. I was a longtime Hydro employee and the last thing I want to see is power plants built on our pristine rivers or windmills on our mountain tops.

Neither windmills or riverside power projects are 100% reliable, therefore the need for 100% reliable power will always be there. Developing 100% reliable sources of power has to be Hydro’s goal. Please we need common sense....Thank you.. Bob Ritchie Qualicum Beach

Glacier/Howser debate continues To the Editor: In light of the recent Glacier/Howser independent power project meeting and open house in Kaslo, I would like to address the province-wide context. Glacier/Howser is only one of hundreds of IPP applications that are destroying BC Hydro’s mandate to provide abundant, cheap power to British Columbians. Since 2002, the provincial government has embarked on a plan to move power generation and transmission from the public sector to the private sector. By Order in Council, BC Hydro has been forbidden to develop any new sources of power, be they by hydro dam, wind power, so-called run-of-the-river, geothermal, coal, or natural gas. The only exceptions allowed are installation of

new turbines in existing dams and possible building of the Site C dam on the Peace River. As well, the government has privatized BC’s transmission grid and outsourced billing and collection services. You may say, “So what? To Kootenay-Columbia residents, BC Hydro has not been such a good corporate citizen over the last 48 years, flooding our valley bottoms, impacting food production and displacing residents and wildlife.” True, but at least BC Hydro belongs to us, and any sacrifices required of Kootenay residents could be seen as benefiting all people in BC. BC Hydro helps us enjoy the second-lowest hydro rates on the continent, it ensures us control of the future of our hydro-electric energy, and it provides us with a

steady source of income for the public coffers. In the long run, under the government’s current scheme of shifting power generation to the private sector, we will end up paying higher rates for power, we will lose control over our hydroelectric resources, and private developers—not the people of BC—will reap the increased financial benefits. Consider this: Axor Corporation, developers of the Glacier/ Howser project, have a long-term contract to sell power to BC Hydro at $79 per megawatt hour, the current rate being $22-24 per MW hour. What does this tell us about our government’s willingness to act in the interests of all British Columbians? Kim Kratky Nelson, BC

Scrap Glacier/Howser, legalize hemp products Dear Premier, Please add my name to the thousands of British Columbians who do NOT WANT the privatization of our creeks and rivers, or the development around them! Do NOT PROCEED with the Howser Glacier project, we don’t want it we don’t want it we don’t want it we don’t want it! Please get the picture... I know money is needed to save BC because of the deep

dark hole the Olympics has caused. Instead, why don’t you legalize marijuana and industrial hemp and start a whole new industry.... it wouldn’t take long and would take us out of that hole. If you are anti-legalization of marijuana then it only makes sense that you must be pro for organized crime. It is a crime that good BC Bud is being is exchanged for hard drugs. If it were legal it would be

harder to do so. If marijuana is illegal because of our health, then why are cigarettes and alcohol legal. Prohibition does not work, education does! Perhaps the lives of politicians would be in danger if they voted for legalizatio n. I hope it is on the tables for discussion soon because it is so ridiculous that is illegal.

Ten tips for a good letter to the editor 1. Keep it short. The more concise your letter, the more dynamic it will be. 2. Address one issue per letter. If you have more than one issue, write a separate letter. 3. Be opinionated. Avoid citing facts, but rather express your opinion regarding the facts. 4. Don’t get personal. Attack the issues, not the person. 5. State your premise in the first sentence. Make the subject of your letter known immediately.

Hatchmatik

Friday, July 17 at the Spiritbar, 422 Vernon St. Matt Morein, AKA DJ Hatchmatik (Hatch), hails from Montreal’s Peer Pressure Party Crew, but started honing his skills years prior to the days of Peer Pressure infamy. Initially a B-Boy, visual artist and a purveyor of rap, funk & soul, the formation of Peer Pressure marked a shift in style for Hatch and a move towards his own production. His sets are rife with electro mindsploders, true sound of the gutter raps, Baltimore club anthems and a selection of his own remixes, most notably “Burn Down The Club”. This is Hatchmatik’s first show at Spiritbar. Tickets are $10 at the door.

When asked what sets this festival apart, LeBlanc points to its small size and intmate atmosphere. “I think what makes Littlefest unique is its intimate setting in a beautiful spot with great music and a great feeling. The people that attend co-create an atmosphere that`s safe and fun.” Tickets are available at several locations around the West Kootenay. People who are unable to purchase tickets in advance can reserve tickets by emailing info@littleslocanlodge. com. Unsold tickets will be available at the gate at $60 for adults, $25 for Youth/Seniors.

Briefly Slocan Lake Dance Camp

July 24 to the 27th, 2009 in New Denver, B.C. Come and experience a great way to refresh for the evening dancing with a foot massage instructed by Christine Sutherland.

lish of toes! This “give and get” session will be an hour long after the afternoon class on Saturday at 5pm. No experience necessary and you do not need to bring a partner. Come and get your feet rubbed the right way and then dance the night away! Homework of contrast foot bathing in the lake is a must!

Most of us have suffered from the burning discomfort of heartburn or acid reflux at some point in our lives. Heartburn has become increasingly common in our society, possibly due to our fast paced lives, poor diets and higher stress levels. Symptoms of heartburn are burning pain in the chest or throat and sour acid regurgitation in the throat and mouth. Acid reflux can also be one of the reasons for chronic coughs. Heartburn is due to stomach acids backing up into the oesophagus, the tube which brings food from our mouth to our stomach. Frequent or constant heartburn can be a sign of

gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which the muscle between the stomach and oesophagus becomes relaxed. Avoiding foods that increase the likelihood of heartburn is the most important thing you can do to prevent heartburn. Foods such as citrus fruits or juices, fatty foods, coffee, tea, chocolate, alcohol, onions and highly spiced foods. Other preventative measures that can help include chewing your food thoroughly, eating small frequent meals, raising the head of your bed slightly, wearing loose fitting clothing, quitting smoking and reducing stress.

Shauna Robertson

If you suffer with heart burn regularly I recommend seeing an M.D to make sure there is not a more serious condition occurring. A common treatment for heartburn is the use of antacids that neutralize the acids causing heartburn. A home remedy for

heartburn is drinking a mixture of baking soda and water, however this should not be used frequently because the sodium can raise blood pressure. Apple cider vinegar with water has also been useful. Herbal remedies that have been used for heartburn include marshmallow root tea (not to be used by pregnant or nursing women), slippery elm and chewable deglycyrrhizated licorice. Treatments from Chinese Medicine Practitioners, Acupuncturists, N a t u r o p a t h s , Homeopaths and Chiropractors have all been beneficial in the treatment of heartburn.

THE HEALTH PAGES Keep your cookouts safe this summer There’s nothing like cooking on the barbeque on a hot summer night. But grilling meat or cooking it at high temperatures can create heterocyclic amines (HCAs) which have been linked to cancer. HCAs are formed when amino acids, the building blocks of protein, and creatine, a natural compound found in muscle meats, react at high temperatures. Limit

your exposure to these mutagens when you are barbequing with these tips: Marinate: Marinade seems to act as a barrier between the meat and the heat. The drier and more well done the meat, the more HCAs it will have. Keep portions small: Smaller portions mean less time on the grill. Try chicken and vegeta-

Chew On This

Tara Stark

ble kebobs instead of a chicken breast. Also, flip frequently: flipping meat frequently keeps the surface temperature lower.

Try seafood: As long as it is not charred, it has fewer HCA’s than meat or poultry. Eat more veggies: Barbequed veggies generate little or no HCAs. Tara Stark is a Registered Dietitian who specializes in helping people optimize their nutritional wellness and prevent diet related chronic disease.

Keeping heat in to save energy “We are in the process of upgrading our attic insulation values in order to conserve energy and reduce our heat loss. Is there anything else that can be done to achieve better heat retention and conserve energy?”

Selkirk students go green Students of the Integrated Environmental Planning Technology program (IEP) at Selkirk College have received $5,000 from the City of Castlegar to help reduce waste through a composting solution at the Castlegar Campus. Second year IEP students Brie Haley, Candice Benner, Daris Piper and Odin Lewis were inspired by a lecture given by Al Gore-trained presenter and Olympic speed skater Ingrid Liepa. “We spoke with Ingrid after the presentation to get a sense of what we could do in our own com-

munity,” explained IEP student Brie Haley. “We decided that composting would be an ideal way to reduce waste at the Castlegar Campus and a good pilot project as well.” The students have decided to raise funds and purchase an “Earth Tub” which is designed specifically for on-site composting of food-wastes. The City of Castlegar has also donated $5,000 towards the unit. “We certainly have a long way to go in terms of funding,” said Brie. “But I am confident that by writing grants and pro-

posals to other organizations, we can bring them on board as partners in this valuable environmental project. The potential for something like this is really huge and we are hoping to launch it in the fall of 2009.” Selkirk College’s Environmental Sustainability Committee has a mandate for all of its campuses to “go green” by 2010. It continues to research opportunities and support efforts to meet the goals of campuswide sustainability initiatives.

Beyond the obvious issues such as weatherstripping at doors and windows, let’s look at some often overlooked areas. Ensure that all exterior wall penetrations are well sealed and replace any old or broken vent hoods for dryers and bathroom or kitchen fans. Another area of considerable heat loss is up in attic. This is not only limited to adding extra insulation but also all the sealing of penetra-

the chagrin of their mates who return home after a day’s work to find their favourite chair is not where they left it that morning! Many of us relish the challenge of taking something tired and forlorn and giving it a make-over, or turning it into something entirely different. For example, take that neglected stone birdbath in the shed—we all have one of those, don’t we— and turn it into an elegant

tions into the attic from fans, lights, wires, attic hatches, and plumbing pipes. The heat loss is driven upwards by stack effect. Stack effect is the movement of air into and out of buildings, chimneys, flues, or other chases, and is driven by buoyancy. Buoyancy occurs due to

a difference in indoor-tooutdoor air density resulting from temperature and moisture differences. The result is either a positive or negative buoyancy force. To put all this together, the greater the temperature difference and the building height, the stronger the buoyancy force or stack effect will be. Before you install the extra insulation that you require, take the time to properly seal all these types of penetrations into the attic area. Your efforts will be rewarded with lower energy costs, during next heating season, or for that matter, now if your home has air conditioning.

Room Redesign the DIY Way Just when you thought it was safe to move your couch from one side of the room to another without hiring a professional, a new branch of the interior design industry has emerged: ‘Redesigners’. Redesigners come into your home and, for a notso-small fee, shuffle a few things about, reconfiguring a room or two while working only with what you already possess. It’s a great concept, particularly in these economic climes. However, I think it is something most of us—except those with unlimited budgets and very limited imaginations—have managed to do all by ourselves since the beginning of ‘shelter’. Women, in particular, enjoy moving furniture around—often much to
