Mt. Sentinel students looking to aid relief effort from home by Murray Donaldson Ideologies have shifted, relationships have strengthened and futures have changed. Back in a classroom setting, Mount Sentinel High School’s Quest for Community class met Jan. 25 and discussed how to continue their efforts to help the people of Haiti. The class, including teacher Don Warthe and along with other local volunteers, had only just arrived in Haiti on Jan. 12 when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit. Unable to fulfill their original intention of helping to build a goat farm and drill a well, the group did what they could to help before they were brought home Jan. 19. The idea of the class, said Warthe, is to learn what makes communities strong, resilient and sustainable. “We went out to learn from communities so that we could bring those lessons back to our own communities and hopefully become stronger our-

selves,” he said. And the students have done just that. Coming back from Haiti, many of the students have a renewed sense of the strength in their community and their place in it. The effort of the school district and support from local communities to get them home safely from Haiti has touched members of the class who are now eager to help raise awareness and get aid relief to the Haitians. Class members have been designated to assist groups in the community who are working on fundraising events. “I feel really proud of our community because of everyone stepping up and organizing fundraisers,” said Nicole Amos. The students now have the opportunity to become representatives of a cause, lending their time and energy and bringing a real-life perspective to the issue. In the longer term, many of the students have a new outlook on their future.

“My trip to Haiti has changed my life goals,” said Ryan Ricalton. “I went from wanting to become an engineer to wanting to become a doctor. It’s changed everything I was planning.” Attitudes towards home and their sense of place in a global community have also evolved. “Going to Haiti has really changed the way I think,” said Kyler Perepolkin. “It really changed my whole perspective on how lucky we are to be in Canada.” Obviously empowered by the class and their experience, the hands-on learning seems to be valued highly by the group. “It’s been good for a lot of us I think, knowing how a community works. Now, later in life when we go out and become members of a community we can be strong members and take a strong role in the community,” said Perepolkin. The group wants to let people here know that it’s important to get money and supplies to the smaller, rural areas outside of

What is the benefit of standardized testing? The debate over standardized testing in the public school system is in the news once again. My thoughts on the matter, offered here, are based on some twenty years experience as a classroom teacher, guidance counsellor and principal. At issue is whether the Foundation Skills Assessment Tests provide the useful information that its promoters claim. Since the B.C. taxpayer is on the hook for $1.2 million, the debate should interest all of us. First, a disclaimer: I haven’t seen a copy of the specific test that teachers

Farm-stay and home-stay the WWOOF way by Julia Gillmor

For the travel adventurer seeking a unique vacation plusfirsthand experience of organic farming and sustainable living, WWOOF Canada has got you covered. World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms Canada offers a great way to travel Canada and the world, for little more than the cost of a plane ticket. The premise of WWOOF relies on hosts offering work experience on organic farms in exchange for room and board, to individuals looking to volunteer their time and labour to learn about organics and sustainable living. Brought to Canada from UK in the 70s, WWOOF began with a few farms on the east coast. In 1985,

John Vanden Heuvel took over the WWOOF movement, eventually bringing it west to Nelson 20 years ago. Becky Young of Procter recently took over WWOOF Canada from Vanden Heuvel. Today, WWOOF Canada provides opportunities with over 900 farm hosts from the East to West Coast and Yukon and Northwest Territories. WWOOF hosts foster learning about organic food and offer a cultural exchange component for international WWOOFers. Young, who worked her way through Australia 25 years ago, before the movement was well known, is excited about being a host and providing the link between parties looking to participate, “It is a wonderful

opportunity and we are so blessed and grateful to John for giving it to us,” she says. A self-employed computer consultant by trade, Young feels WWOOF is helping her live out her life’s dream of learning to live completely self-sustained. “My interest in organics came about due to my own health issues, I started to do research and came to understand that for health, what was most important is what we feed our bodies.” Young says that WWOOF popularity grew as a direct result of word of mouth; she first heard about WWOOF Canada from friends who had become hosts. Today WWOOF Canada maintains a website that for a fee, hosts $50 and

WWOOFers $45, can join to find opportunities across Canada. Anyone can WWOOF, providing they are willing to work, share and learn. Even those with children have the opportunity to WWOOF. If living on a 44 acre frontier homestead on the Klondike River or working for an organic market garden and B&B overlooking the Northumberland Strait in PEI appeals to you, check out the WWOOF Canada website at or phone 250-229-4448.

punch like nothing else. All kinds of metabolic processes happen in a seed as it begins to grow. The metabolically active seed is usually much higher in nutrients that its latent sk9E000080 counterpart. Sprouts typically are rich in bioavail-

able vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals as well as amino acids and proteins. You can grow your own sprouts or you can buy locally grown sprouts. We are lucky to have local sprouts available all year here in the Kootenays. Be aware that sprouts have, on very rare occasion, harbored harmful bacteria such as salmonella. For this reason, Health Canada does not recommend that young children, seniors, or people who are immune compromised eat raw sprouts.

Kootenay residents can help local volunteers get clean water to Haitians by Murray Donaldson Kootenay residents are being asked to help three Nelson volunteers who have been in Haiti since December and are still trying to provide people in the earthquake-ravaged country with clean water. Sebastien de Marre, Marie-Paule Brisson and Dave Putt were volunteering on a water and sanitation project in Port-au-Prince with Pure Water for the World when an earthquake hit Jan. 12. The dedicated trio has decided to stay on despite the horrific conditions and is giving basic medical aid as well as continuing to supply water filters and tankers of water to a number of neighbourhoods. Rik Valentine, a friend of the three volunteers, is encouraging area residents to get behind them

in their efforts and raise funds for Pure Water for the World. “Once the earthquake happened, I just felt like it was time to step up to the plate and see what I could do at this end to help rally a bit of support for them,” said Valentine. Unlike some larger aid organizations that have to set up in an area after such a disaster, this small group was already functioning and continues to do so with immediate effect. “They’re already on the ground and established. They’ve got their networks, they have their Haitian staff and they have local knowledge,” he said. “This is a small group that’s being really, really effective in a very important way and here we are in small communities up here that can do something right now to

help.” Even before the earthquake hit Haiti, a lack of safe drinking water was the second leading cause of death in children and only 58 per cent of people had access to clean water. Valentine is coordinating fundraising groups in local communities and has established a point of collection where tax receipts will be available. He is hoping that volunteers will get active in many Kootenay communities and that funds will be funneled quickly to Haiti so that the three volunteers can respond as quickly as possible. “People here in the Kootenays, can do something right now to make a difference and get through to people on the ground down there,” he said. “I’m really encouraging people to step forward if they

have any energy to put into this.” The earthquake damaged the group’s water filter factory and some inventory was lost. Dealing with lack of supplies, they continue to work on water distribution and they have put in a number of emergency water filtration centres. Their longer-term objective is to get their filter factory back up and running to produce water filters that will help provide clean water. To get involved in fundraising, to make a donation, and for more information, contact Rik Valentine at or on the phone at (250) 366 4325. For more information on the organization go to:

Opinions & Letters Editorial

Olympics wastes money better spent on other issues

The Olympic conflict The day the Olympic torch came through town in a whirlwind of games, excitement and CocaCola products, has come and gone and is officially a part of Nelson’s history. Organizers did a fine job of coordinating events for the whole family to keep us entertained in the cold weather. Bill McDonnell (that’s pronounced Mack•don•ELL, in case you are confused after the show) was an inspiration, a true champion of the community who showed to the world the humble pride that is found in our little town. But it must be noted that many Nelson residents are conflicted between the commercialism of these modern Olympics and the spirit of the Games that started thousands of years ago in Greece. There were a number of protesters out on Saturday night, spreading a message that there are other, better things we can be doing, as a nation and a province, with $6 billion.

As one protester pointed out, $6 billion is the entire GDP of Haiti. Our education system could really use a $6 billion boost, as could our health care system, the environment, the list goes on an on. The Olympics is a wonderful time to celebrate the Canadian athletes who have trained hard, probably their whole lives, for a chance to represent Canada on the world stage of the Olympics. We support those athletes entirely. But when did the Games get so commercial? Two RVs each for RBC and Coca-Cola, packed full with swag, seems excessive, despite all the commercialism and hubbub around the Olympics. Let’s try to keep the focus of these exciting times on what it should be: a celebration of our youth, our athletes and a place where we can put aside our differences for some friendly competition. Use these Games as a reminder that we are all in this together.

January 27, 2010

Dear Editor, For a long time I have been angry at the waste of money the Olympic Games represent. Think what six billion dollars could do in our world. Seeing the phony enthusiasm and prodigious waste of energy and resources at

Nelson’s torch rally turned my anger to tears. We are jumping up and down (I won’t dignify what I saw with the word dancing) to stay warm while thousands of homeless Canadians freeze. We are applauding the bankers who steal our wealth and use it to

sponsor this circus while millions lack bread. We are shouting for coca cola while billions in our word lack clean water. We are reveling on the grave we are making of our planet. Dick Visson Nelson

Helping each other out will help solve problems Dear Editor, I’ve been thinking about housing density issues, and how many big, old houses there are in Nelson with only a few people living in them. Sometimes it’s people whose children are grown, who don’t want to give up their family home. What about exchanging needed skills for livein housing, for example cooking or gardening? This could save everyone money, and be a better use of space. This could be ideal for owners of larger homes who have extremely demanding work and don’t have time for these tasks, or someone who travels a lot and wants a presence in their home while they’re away, or for someone who’s writing a book. In the case of cooking, it could also be

perfect for someone who needs to change their diet but doesn’t know where to begin if they were to have a vegan cook move in with them. Each arrangement would need to be made very carefully, based on lifestyle preferences. Both parties would need to have similar tolerances for levels of noisiness, tidiness and cleanliness, and pets could be an issue. An arrangement like this would make better use of larger residences, would free up rental space, and would build community by forging new relationships. Many of us already do things that encourage the transition to a sustainable community, and it would be great to share them with each other. To do this we could have a space on the inter-

net where we could post what we are already doing and why. For example, we could list news sources we trust that help us to stay informed; the shopping, banking and investment habits we’ve developed and the lifestyle choices we make that help us to create a more caring and environmentally friendly society. We could also list local organizations that help to do this and what we appreciate about them. Perhaps entries could be taken from the site and posted in the Express for the benefit of those who don’t use computers. It would be great to see the multiplier effect this kind of a site would have, and could potentially help us transition to the kind of society we want. Diana van Eyk Nelson

Arts & Entertainment Jill Barber Live in Concert

Saturday, Jan. 30, 8 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St. With every album she’s created Barber has inched closer and closer to the beautiful gems found on her latest, Chances. Her unbridled love with the sounds of 50’s and 60’s jazz and folk is the flame that sets Chances afire. And her distinctive, smokey voice is the perfect instrument for a sound that is both instantly vintage and yet still affecting in today’s scene.

“The best songs ever written are the ones that somehow transcend time and fashion,” says Jill. “They may be old, but they haven’t aged. It is that timeless quality that I aspire to in my own songwriting.” Charge tickets by phone at 352-6363 or buy online The show is $25 adult $20 student/season package. For more information contact the Capitol Theatre at 250-352-6363. Check out other upcoming shows at

Chances proves Barber’s undeniable talent not only as both a songwriter, but as a singer who so easily suits the spotlight that greats like Patsy Cline or Ella Fitzgerald have done before her. Taking a giant step forward from the typical confines of the singersongwriter, Jill delivers an album of ten original, fully orchestrated songs that strongly evoke – and could themselves become classics. From the moment you hear her sultry voice on the opening title track, you are transported to another time and place.

Briefly Kenny Konrad Band with Aspen Switzer

Thursday, Jan. 28, 8 p.m. at the Royal, 330 Baker St. Kenny’s vocal and guitar style of roots/honky tonk country will get everyone dancing, while Aspen’s pure and powerful voice will keep you captivated. Together with Jessa Koerber (vocals & keyboard), Jeff Urbanski (upright bass), and Robin Sittig (drums) this is a five-piece, all Kootenay, old time bluegrass rocking country band with three part harmonies and gun slinging electric guitar. Ian Haynes, a roots musician from Kaslo will be opening the show.

Disco Villains

Friday, Jan. 29 at SpiritBar, 422 Vernon St. Tony Edit was a local household name in the electronica scene in Mexico and Arizona. He was the only DJ around to fill the dancefloors with

the tough valley crowd. He had the support, the looks, the banging jams, but he lacked something to really get the ball rolling. In comes Louie Fresco. Then came the internet... then it all went nuts.

Teens featured at Ellison’s Cafe

Saturday, Jan. 30, 12-3 p.m. 523 Front St. Brooke and Brad Crowdis from Thrums will open with contemporary songs followed by Ana Seed and Carol Street from Nelson. Kevin Watt and Steven Lee perform on piano and guitar.

In this class, ErinThomson will incorporate the fun and funky fusion of gypsy inspired moves, the deep and hipnotic of tribal belly dance, to the exuberant and outrageous fun of Bollywood dance. Each class is unique as it incorporates eclec-

tic world music to create an invigorating, physically challenging, and fun experience for all bodies and dance enthusiasts. Each class will begin and end with a yoga flow, including a focus on core strengthening.

The Bruno Hubert Trio and Kiyo Elkuf

Sunday, Jan. 31, 7:30 p.m. at Studio 80, 820 10th St. A permanent fixture in Vancouver’s Jazz scene for over 13 years, The Bruno Hubert Trio bring a deep sense of pacing to their performances. Pianist Hubert is a modern pioneer of chord voicing and connoisseur of groove, accessing musical vocabulary from Duke Ellington and George Shearing to Kieth Jarret and Shostakovitch. In addition to performing regularly with his trio and other Vancouver based projects, Bruno is an exceptional piano tuner and an insightful teacher. Among others, Bruno Hubert has performed with Gary Foster, and Seamus Blake. Performing with Hubert at Studio 80 will be Samuel Cartwright on drums, Patrick Metzger on upright bass, and Kiyo Elkuf on Saxophone. Tickets cost $15, or $10 for students and are avail-

Shane Philip

Friday, Jan. 29, 9 p.m. at the Royal Lounge and Grill, 330 Baker St. With numerous musical instruments at hands reach including didgeridoo, drums, guitars and a Weissenborn, Philip’s exuberant excellence beats out even the most zealous of multi-taskers. A mythological deity in the eyes of single-instrument musicians, Philip keeps his cool and busts out Jack Johnson-ish riffs before building up to a climactic cacophony question period�where you are left scratching your head and wondering just who is playing all those instruments.

T R E E S and a few mountains

Ongoing for the month of February at the Kootenay Bakery, 377 Baker St. New artwork by local artist Suzanne McLean will be on display at the Kootenay Bakery Café for the month of February. Original acrylic paintings in varying sizes will be available for viewing or for purchase for reasonable prices. Paintings focus mainly on treed landscapes with a few panoramic views of the Purcell Mountain Range as seen from Kaslo. Come down and take a peak if you’re in the area. Suzanne is an emerging artist who paints surreal, expressionist, and impressionist inspired landscapes. “Painting is something I wanted to do for a long time before I started doing it. Yet I never thought of myself as an artist. I just wanted to play with colour. Only a few years into this journey, painting has become an exploration in emotion the deeper I get into this love affair I’m having with colour. I paint mostly landscapes, or at least my own dreamlike interpretation of them, because that’s what moves me.” If you cannot come down to the bakery in person, paintings can also be viewed online by going to: http:// by Pitt

Live in every corner of your house We all know what it feels like to slip a hand into a glove only to find extra floppy spaces at the end of the fingertips—it’s uncomfortable. Houses are the same. To live fully, we need to fill the far corners of our homes and not leave unused ‘dead’ space. Underused spaces develop for a number of reasons: sometimes, we simply haven’t bothered to decorate a room, make it comfortable, or assign a purpose to it. In other instances, rooms that once fulfilled specific purposes are no longer required. For example, children grow up and leave home, or perhaps you’ve closed down the business you once ran from home. These once active spaces now lack energy and no longer con-

tribute to the whole. They leave gaps in your life and your home and should be reclaimed and brought back into service. Some inactive spaces become shrines to ‘just-incase’ usage. For example, perfectly appointed, neat and tidy guest rooms that are used only three weeks out of 52, or formal dining rooms ignored most of the time but preserved ‘just in case’ the extended family shows up for dinner dur-

ing holidays. For most of the year, everyone tiptoes past the closed guestroom door and the empty dining room to congregate in the kitchen or family room where all needs and purposes appear to be adequately addressed. Returning to the glove analogy, it’s rather like living in the palm of one’s hand and ignoring the far reaches and potential of extended fingertips. It’s important to stretch out and fill the dark chilly corners. Bring light, colour, comfort and energy to these spaces. Reconfigure them if their original purposes have changed, or give them multiple uses so that you ��� ‘just ����������� are still prepared in case’ Aunt Polly up � shows ����������� for a weekend.
