In the face of growing debt and stagnant membership, the board of directors for Nelson’s golf course have come up with an ambitious plan to revitalize Granite Pointe by adding up to 300 new residences to Nelson. At council’s Monday, Aug. 24 committee of the whole meeting, Gary Price, president of the Granite Pointe board of directors, and several of his directors unveiled the plan which Price said was “vital to the long-term vitality of the golf course.” The proposed plan still has to go before Granite Pointe’s members before the golf course’s directors ask council to rezone portions of the land owned by the group. The plan for Granite Pointe Village would see a mix of housing and commercial development added to the Rosemont golf course. The golf course would most likely sell the land to developers who would then build. “It would be too much risk for us as a non-profit group,” Price told council, explaining why they would not take on building themselves. The board of directors came up with the plan in a bid to overcome mounting debt. Granite Pointe needs to add 250 new members in order to have sustainable income, said Dave Swain, treasurer for the golf course. Right now, annual membership is roughly $300,000 below sustainable levels. “The course is in decline,” Swain said. “We haven’t been able to reinvest.” The golf course has carried debt ever since it expanded back in 1989 and Swain estimated it would cost $3 million to bring the

�������������� ��������������� ������� ������������� ����������

course up to par. Money from the sale of the course would go towards improving the course while new members would help sustain the golf course. “The problem isn’t the debt,” said director Oliver Berkeley. “It’s the lack of members.” The directors said they didn’t expect the every new resident to become a member of Granite Pointe, but they were banking on 30 to 40 per cent to join. The development wouldn’t be geared to golfers said Rob Fershau, the landscape architect who presented plans for the development. The concept would be to build a mix of singlefamily housing units along with multi-family units. There would be a commercial hub near the existing clubhouse that would hold the highest density housing and could include up to five storey buildings, according to the initial plans presented to council. With the high density housing near the course, CHRIS SHEPHERD building would be smaller Ernie Moisey lines up a put on the 10th hole on Granite Pointe.

Kokanee Physiotherapy moves Physio clinic turns empty space into ideal setting to help people get healthy and mobile by Chris Shepherd Before Kokanee Physiotherapy moved to its new location the space was an empty shell, which meant owner Susan Faye was able to create the ideal space for her physiotherapy clinic. The clinic opened at its new location at 801 B Front Street (next to OK Tire off the parking lot) in July. Faye says it was a great opportunity to design a physio clinic that suited her needs. “I moved to have the opportunity to design a better clinic with better flow,” Faye says. That means clients move through the clinic in a circular direction. With the new space, Faye put in a resilient rubber floor in the gym, which increases the shock absorption. The gym is larger now, giving people room to exercise. The gym features a rowing machine, stationary bikes, weight machines,

balls, balance equipment and a pulley system. K o k a n e e Physiotherapy has six physiotherapists to guide clients through the gym and other exercises. Each physiotherapist brings unique specialities that work on sports training and rehab, balance, incontinence, acupuncture, orthotics, knee bracing, breathing retraining and craniosacral therapy. “It’s really a well-balanced team at the clinic,” Faye says. The physiotherapists have a solid understanding of how the body moves and what keeps it moving, says Faye. People with acute or chronic injuries or those recovering from surgery could benefit from working with a physiotherapist. K o k a n e e Physiotherapy is open from 7:20 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. The clinic can be reached by phone at 352-7030.

Charlesworth questions motivation behind Dooley’s report on power projects by Chris Shepherd A report recommending the RDCK explore getting involved with independent power projects in the region led to some tough questions for Mayor John Dooley, who was grilled on the motivation behind the report by his own council. The report was one of two Dooley brought to the Monday, Aug. 24 committee of the whole meeting. Both were written at the request of the Regional District of Central Kootenay board of directors. One was a backgrounder and other, authored by Dooley, says the regional government should look into options for partnering with local governments, Columbia Basin Trust and Columbia Power on creating power projects in the region. The report said such partnerships would be with an aim to support local energy self-sufficiency and to retain benefits of local renewable energy sources. Councillor Kim Charlesworth

asked Dooley what the thought process was behind the report: to generate power for local consumption or to sell to BC Hydro. Dooley said the report, delivered to the RDCK board at their August meeting, was only meant to get local governments thinking about whether they want to get involved with independent power projects (IPPs). ‘The idea was to take control of our own destiny,” Dooley said. A number of IPPs are in the works for the region, the mayor went on, including the controversial Glacier/ Howser project. Dooley said it was a “missed opportunity” that the RDCK didn’t get involved with IPPs when the government first asked for interested parties. Charlesworth pounced on the term “missed opportunity,” and asked Dooley what he meant by the phrase. Charlesworth listed off several options including environmental protection, making money and generating power. Dooley’s answer to all of those were they were all missed

opportunities. Charlesworth said there needs to be major discussion on each of those issues and expressed concern about the report. “I am concerned that the information being looked at and the direction of these two papers is leaping onto the IPP bandwagon.” Coun. Robin Cherbo supported Charlesworth’s concerns. “Government should protect the environment, not use it for monetary gain,” Cherbo said. Mayor Dooley maintained the report, and recommendation adopted by the RDCK board, emphasized investigating IPPs. “The reality is we are currently on the outside looking in,” Dooley said. “I don’t think it’s a bad thing to say we could produce power.” Coun. Margaret Stacey agreed with Dooley’s appraisal of the situation, noting the provincial government has made up its mind on IPPs and that “the train has left the station.”

Josh Smienk’s campaign may have had the deeper pockets, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the support for the NDP and Michelle Mungall during this spring’s provincial election. According to records released by Elections BC last week, Smienk, the BC Liberal Party candidate, raised $77,172.86 and spent nearly $64,000 of that. Smienk pulled in considerable support from individuals and businesses in the community while Mungall, who was elected for the BC NDP relied heavily on the provincial party for her campaign financing. All but $71 of the $50,235.68 Mungall had for the Tuesday, May 12 election came from the BC NDP. Mungall spent $52,314.15 in the election. While the records show

Nelson Hydro can’t find cause of power outages that plagued region last week Nelson Hydro is in the dark about the cause of three power outages last week and they’ve brought in a consultant to help find the cause. The power company suspects the lightning storms that crashed through the region in late July and early August may have something to do with the outages. In August, Nelson Hydro line crews had replaced insulators that were working but had visible dam-

age from the storms. After the third power outage on Saturday, Aug. 30, Nelson Hydro did an aerial patrol of the transmission system, looking for problems. That patrol didn’t turn up any major problems so the company brought in a consultant to provide an infrared scan of the transmission line. Infrared scanning can find problems that are not visible to the naked eye. The first outage happened on Tuesday, Aug. 25. A ground patrol of the system turned up no clues as

This work is necessary to replace galvanized iron water lines with new water main. Construction will commence on Tuesday, September 8th and continue until approximately the end of October, 2009.

Smienk raises the most, NDP record handling makes it hard to track donors Mungall’s money came from the BC NDP party, that’s misleading. When someone donates to Mungall, the money actually goes to the provincial party, which then forwards the cash to Mungall. Under the NDP’s system, donations are reported by name. In records filed by the BC NDP with Elections BC, there is no way to track where the donors are from or to separate donors based on electoral riding. The arrangement makes it easier to audit and the system is transparent, Mungall says. “It all gets recorded and it’s just in a different way.” The two other candidates, Sean Kubara for the Green Party of BC and David Duncan for the Conservatives, spent far less. Kubara spent $3,700 in the campaign and Duncan spent $2,426. Roughly a third of

to the cause. Two days later the power went out from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., an outage that hit the entire city of Nelson and the utility’s customers on the North Shore. A cable at the Mill Street substation had failed, causing the outage, though Nelson Hydro staff don’t know why. The 30 metre long cable, which connects to a transformer, was fairly new and should have had “many more years of service life,” read a Nelson Hydro press release.

Liberals scrambling: Mungall Nelson-Creston MLA says throne speech a sign the BC Liberals have no plan for dealing with the economic crisis by Chris Shepherd When a new MLA speaks for the first time in the Legislature, tradition among elected officials is to let the new member speak without the usual heckling that accompanies most speeches. NDP MLA Michelle Mungall used that opportunity to slam the Liberals’ throne speech. Mungall said the throne speech, delivered on Tuesday, Aug. 25,

was dedicated to justifying the harmonized sales tax (HST). Prior to the spring election, the BC Liberals said they would not have a HST. “That’s a total one-eighty. That’s a lie,” said Mungall. “The majority of the throne speech was dedicated to justifying that lie. To admitting they were negligent in terms of what B.C.’s economic status was before the election.” The HST will hit Nelson-

Creston residents in the pocketbooks, Mungall said, tacking seven per cent tax “on everything.” Mungall said the brevity of the throne speech was telling. “They don’t have a plan. They’re scrambling.” Mungall also took aim at the Liberals’ plan to phase out the Burrard Thermal power generating station. In July, the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) the agency that regulates energy

services in the province, rejected the Liberal’s long-term energy plan. That plan relied on independent power producers and moved away from the natural gas fuelled Burrard Thermal Generating Station. The BCUC said Burrard Thermal could be used more, but the throne speech said the government would give the BCUC specific direction and that phasing out Burrard Thermal was “a critical

component of B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction strategy.” “What they [the BC Liberals] have done is decided to play politics with an independent body whose only interest is the public interest.” The BC NDP have never said Burrard Thermal has to be used, Mungall said. “The NDP believe that public assets and resources need to be under public control.”

WISHing for sustainable SD8 cash housing for local women flow stable New project seeks to connect women in need of housing with elderly women who want to stay in their homes by Chris Shepherd Across the Kootenays there are women looking for safe, long-term housing. There are also elderly women with homes looking for ways to say in the house they’ve lived in for years. A new project hopes to bring those two groups of women together and solve some housing problems in the region. The Community WISH (Women in Sustainable Housing) Project was launched by the Circle of Habondia Lending Society to connect those women. “I think it’s the start

of a wave of coming back as communities and helping each other,” says Diane Ermacora, a director for the Circle of Habondia. The WISH Project will take 12 women looking for housing and pair them with 12 women with housing. Karyn Shaundell is one of two coordinators of the WISH Project. She says the project is about pooling resources in the community, pairing women with housing to spare with women who need it. The criteria for the women in need of housing is they must have left a violent relation-

ship (not necessarily recently) and be willing to explore alternative living and housing arrangements with elder women. The women should also be interested in attending workshops around financial education, planning and leadership skills. The workshops are meant to supplement the housing aspect of the project. Shaundell says each pairing of women will be unique and they depend on the needs of both women. As questions come up, the two women will use the skills they develop in the workshops to find the answers. Ermacora and Shaundell say they won’t be able to accept every woman that applies for the program but the workshops will be open to just about everyone. There will be a series of discussions throughout the region to inform women about the Community WISH Project. Ermacora says it’s

Finances look good, but declining enrolment continues to challenge school district by Chris Shepherd

I think it’s the start of a wave of coming back as communities and helping each other. Diane Ermacora, director with The Circle of Habondia Lending Society

time women thought of different ways to solve housing problems. “We cannot continue to be insular. We have to start pooling our resources.” For more information phone 352-6688 or email h a bo n d i aw i s h@ g m ai l . com or visit 420 Mill St. in Nelson.

School District 8 has its financial house in order this year, but declining enrolment means the school district will continue to struggle into the future, says superintendent Pat Dooley. Last year, Kootenay Lake School District 8 (SD8) put to bed a $3.9 million debt and avoided creating a new $311,000 deficit, both moves that have put the school district is a good financial position, said Dooley. “One of the challenges we’re facing is our enrolment is continuing to decline slightly and we are in funding protection.” Funding protection refers to the fact the province is not cutting its per-student allotment despite having fewer students. Funding protection can have its downside, however. “If we get any additional students and we have an overcrowded classroom, we wouldn’t get any more money.” Dooley expects there will be 60 to 80 fewer students enrolled in SD8 schools this year. Much of that decline is at the high school level. In dealing with the dropping student numbers, SD8 is continuing with its plans to rebuild Trafalgar. “We see that as a definite key piece in finishing off our approach to handling declining enrolment.” On a broader scale, Dooley says the school district is working on finding ways to support vulnerable learners, those with special needs or who aren’t reading and writing at the appropriate level. Students go back to class on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Opinions & Letters Editorial Granite Pointe Village looks like a good idea, so far Granite Pointe’s board of directors have given the public a first glance at plans to add up to 300 new residences to their property in Rosemont. At this early stage, it looks like they’ve made a good drive down the fairway. Appropriate densification is a good thing for our community. The initial plans for Granite Pointe include a mix of separate dwellings, joined and even a five-storey building. There are places where a fivestorey building won’t block people’s views and Granite Pointe, perched up on the mountainside, is a great location for such a structure. The designer hired by the golf course has even attempted to blend the development with the surrounding neighbourhood of Rosemont, a worthy endeavour. Granite Pointe needs more people to join their golf club to become sustainable. Nelson needs more people for much the same reason. Our business community needs more customers. We want services from our city but they’re beyond our economic reality. Five hundred more consumers would be a great boon. With more people, our community can add new businesses, further diversifying our economy. We don’t have a single major industrial taxpayer, which appears to be a good thing when compared to other communities, but we need to grow to improve our community. We need to add more people but we need to plan for them. Our water, sewer and power needs must be ready to absorb more people without forcing restrictions on those who already call our community home. Every year we have water use restrictions. The board of directors said they were exploring the idea of providing their own water and we strongly encourage them to see if that is feasible. It would be excellent to add more people without draining the pipes of Nelson. Of course, before this development moves ahead there must be some community discussion and consultation with the Rosemont neighbourhood.

More on good grant writing

Last week’s column dealt with applications for funding for seniors’ projects through the federal government’s New Horizons for Seniors program. Recently I was involved in the first level of the approval process. Some of the applications were excellent. A few were poorly done. Most were somewhere in between. Here are some aspects of excellent proposals. They met all the guidelines. They were initiated because seniors had expressed a need for the activity or program to be funded. The planning that went into the grant was done by seniors. Also, seniors’ active participation was necessary for the activity or program to happen. These factors guarantee that the proposals would not just be a

service to seniors. The programs were intended to impact the wider community, not just the seniors directly involved. A high level of volunteer involvement was indicated, with some specific indicators as to how that would happen. The application form asks how the intended outcomes of the program would be measured. Many of the responses suggested an anecdotal report would be the only measure of successful outcomes. The

excellent proposals had some specific method of feedback. Of course, if the focus of the proposal was the production of something concrete, such as a book or DVD, the book or DVD itself would be the measure of success. The development and explanation of the budget was critical. When the budget figures appeared to be realistic and well explained, that was a big plus. The inclusion of fees for service always led to discussion. Was this necessary to make the program happen? Was the level of fees realistic and appropriate? The reduction of the amount on this budget line was often suggested. Finally, the highest marks went to those proposals that had a strong chance of continuing without further funding.

No, it just looks like it. I’ve lived here for 26 years and the population has stayed the same, its just changed. All the hunting and fishing stores are skatboarding and skiing shops now. Frank Barnes Nelson

John Bottomley

Monday, Sept. 7, 7 p.m. at the Cedar Creek Café, 5709 Hwy. 6, Winlaw John Bottomley is a singer, writer, performer, poet, composer and artist. His musical career has been “something like Alice in Wonderland.” Bottomley not only writes his own music and lyrics, but also has a talent for art and literature. In particular, he has illustrated his books, posters and CD covers. His work shows a sense of contemplation and stillness combined with a comical inclination of the surreal. He has a deep understanding of the spirit of myth, fable, and folklore. Of his music, John says, “I try not to trap my music in any style since this can be very dangerous. My music is sometimes magical, sometimes exotic, but at other times, sinister.” With a willingness to experiment it’s imaginative songwriting. The styles he dabbled in are rock, country, blues, folk, soul, jazz, hillbilly, pop as in popular, bluebeat, spoken word, celtic, and a little bluegrass. Cover by donation.

Trampled By Turtles

Monday, Sept. 7 at Little Slocan Lodge, Look for the Little Slocan Lodge sign on the left side of Highway 6, near Slocan City. Follow Gravel Pit Road and veer right on to Little Slocan Forest Service Road. Watch for sign at 8 km. Trampled By Turtles, the speedgrass sensation that stole the show at last summer’s Littlefest, are back by popular demand. The five-piece alt-bluegrass band plays original tunes so fast your eyes can’t believe it and your feet can’t help but dance. Trampled By Turtles were the most talked about band that played Little Slocan Lodge last year. Because they loved the Kootenays and it’s community so much they have made this intimate show happen. There will be an outdoor barbecue at 6 p.m., so bring food and drinks. The show will start at

9 p.m. There is free camping available. Advance tickets are $15 and are available at Eddy Music in Nelson and Gaia Tree in Winlaw. For more information email info@littleslocanlodge.com.

formances and in-depth interviews. The show will include short films by Jessica Gates, Noam Ash and Shane Hainsworth, plus an outtake of IMTV’s Beat on the Street, featuring Matty of Cyphanex and a special live appearance by Marco Sordini. The show is hosted by the boisterous, Jenna Raider, and in-house music will be supplied by the incomparable, Beats

Friday, Sept. 4 at the Spiritbar, 422 Vernon St. Delhi 2 Dublin is a group of five musicians who mash up electronica and world music, keeping it heavy on the Bhangra, Celtic and dub flavours. Fusing tabla, fiddle, dhol, Punjabi vocals, and electric sitar with scorching electronic beats, ranging from reggae to drum and bass, the crew takes listeners on a wild ride through global sounds and synchronicities. Originally formed for a one-shot perfor-

mance during Vancouver’s Celtic Fest in March of 2006, word of their foot stomping, high energy live set started to spread, and the project took on a life of its own. Recently, the crew has just finished putting together their second album Delhi 2 Dublin – Remixed. This time, D2D chose some of their favourite producers from around the globe to remix their first album but with more bass, more energy, more funk . . . and more dance floor bliss. $15 at the door.

Beatlemania

Thursday, Sept. 8 at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St. This magical mystery tour exploring the Beatle’s revolution in popular music and culture. Employing authentic Beatle instruments, amplifiers, and costumes, coupled with faithful renditions of favourite Beatle classics. The Beatles Experience recreates the spirit of the Fab Four in ways that have audiences raving about them eight days a week. The band features David Christopher (as John Lennon), Cameron Charters (as Paul McCartney), Paul Green (as George Harrison) and Michael Brady (as Ringo Starr). Musically, no detail is overlooked to re-create the true sound and excitement of The Beatles, with every song performed totally live and in its original key.

some might say impossible. The music could fit within the genre of folk since Taylor Ashton and Adam Iredale-Gray favour the use of acoustic instruments in their compositions. It could be further classified as old-time, considering their instrumental pairing of fiddle and banjo and many of their melodies have their roots deep in the American South. If so inclined, one could even add the well-worn label indie to the mix; their self-titled debut was recorded, pressed, and printed by the duo themselves. Fish and Bird have gone spelunking in the darkest caves of folk traditions and human experience for inspiration, and they produced a sound that is both recklessly eclectic and sublimely cohesive. It’s a veritable folk elixir seasoned with sprinklings of eastern spices, a pinch of pop, and a dash of roots.

There’s more than one way to cook a zucchini.

�������������� ���������

CHRIS SHEPHERD

Dig into zucchinis It’s that time of year when I wonder why there are not hundreds of websites and blogs dedicated to creative ways to use zucchinis. Most folks with gardens have probably been eating zucchinis for over a month now and the novelty has well worn off. Don’t despair the next time you find a zucchini the size of baseball bat snaking through your garden. Make some zucchini muffins or a loaf and freeze the extras in single portions, ready to pop into a lunch bag. If you simply don’t have the time, or just can’t bear to look at another zucchini, grate or dice zucchini and freeze it in one

Enlarged prostate gland: An issue for men of all ages

The medical term for a non-cancerous enlarged prostate gland is BPH, benign prostatic hyperplasia. This condition is extremely common and according to the National Institute of Health about half of men between the ages of 50 and 60, and up to 90 per cent of men over the age of 70, will develop it. The prostate

gland is a male sex gland that produces the fluid for semen. The walnutsized gland sits underneath the bladder and surrounds the upper part of the urethra. The urethra drains urine from the bladder to the penis for urination. If the prostate becomes enlarged, this can obstruct the smooth flow of urine through the urethra, thereby causing

problems with urination. Symptoms of BPH can include a weak urine stream, dribbling or leaking after urination and a need to push to get urine to flow. An enlarged prostate gland can also cause the bladder wall to thicken, creating a feeling of irritation and urgency to urinate, as well as frequency of urination, even when there is only a small

gical attention or medication. It can be helpful to see a naturopath, herbalist, or traditional Chinese medicine practitioner for advice on supplements for prostate health such as: stinging nettles, saw palmetto, flaxseed, amino acids, etc. A licensed healthcare professional should always be consulted before using any product in order to determine appropriate dosage and usage for each individual.

There are various forms of treatment for BPH as it can develop in different ways and can cause an array of different symptoms in each individual.

Local Crime Stoppers moves office to Nelson Police Dept. The phone lines are open and waiting to take tips from the public on solving crimes in the West Kootenay/Boundary. As part of a co-ordinated regional effort with the RCMP, the Nelson Police Department has taken a turn in providing office space and some IT support to enable Crime Stoppers to set up shop in Nelson, serving the area from Midway to Balfour, Nakusp to the U.S. border. The Crime Stoppers Program is volunteerbased and has experienced tremendous success across North America, being

active in British Columbia since 1985. Crime Stoppers tips pour in daily across the country with information on everything from graffiti and vandalism to grow ops and drug trafficking, illegal weapons, stolen property, robberies and homicides. Often, a Crime Stoppers tip is the only thing that puts the police on the trail to making an arrest and solving a crime. Anonymity is guaranteed, because identities of callers are never revealed, and cash rewards are payable not through the police, but through Crime

Stoppers. Crime Stoppers needs a small funding stream to be effective, in order to pay fixed costs, training, advertising and payment of tips. Surprisingly, only a small percentage of tipsters (under 10 per cent) are seeking a reward. Businesses and individuals who are able to donate to the program are encouraged to contact Jack Fisher at 359-7306. If you have information about any crime in the West Kootenay/Boundary, please call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). – submitted

Nominate a biz or organization that is accessible and inclusive Do you know of a Nelson-serving business, club or organization that goes above and beyond to be accessible and inclusive to individuals with disabilities? Here is an opportunity to nominate a local gem that goes the extra mile to reach out to every member of the community. A business or club or organization can be accessible and inclusive in any of the following ways: • Physically accessible so all patrons can enter and enjoy the shopping experience by getting around with ease and feeling welcome; • Hiring individuals with any kind of disability and offering a supportive work place;

• Providing a service or products that benefit people with a disability such as delivery service or shopping online; • Training employees about disability issues or how to serve customers with a disability; • Supporting local recreational, cultural or community events or teams that benefit individuals with disabilities. People who want to nominate an organization can send an email with a short paragraph about the business, organization or club describing how they are accessible or inclusive to people with disabilities by Tuesday, Sept. 15. They should be sent to Alison Roy at aldech@shaw.ca, or call 551-4732. – submitted

Briefly Guided tours of the Kokanee salmon spawning

Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6, 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park The Kokanee salmon have returned to the creeks of their birth to spawn. These brightly coloured fish are landlocked sockeye salmon which have adapted to spending their entire life in freshwater. The eggs are deposited in the golf-ball sized gravel and grow over the winter. The redfish die shortly after spawning. As spring

advances and stream flow increases, the tiny fry emerge from the gravel at night and travel down to the lake to hide from predators in the wetland nursery provided by the shoreline. They live in the lake for three years before returning to the creeks of their birth to spawn. Kokanee Creek Park is 19 kilometres east of Nelson on Highway 3. The pathway is wheelchair and stroller accessible. The local schools in the Columbia Basin must make advance bookings through the visitor centre at 825-4723.

Skateboarding lessons

Thursdays, starting Sept. 10, 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nelson and District Youth Centre, 608 Lake St. The next set of Nelson and District Youth Centre skate lessons start next week and run every Thursday afternoon. Youth will learn about balance, positioning, pushing, stopping, kick turns, drop-ins and more. Space is limited, everyone must pre-register. $50 for six lessons. For more information, contact the youth centre at 352-5656.
