Nelson’s newest retirement community open Nelson Mayor John Dooley and dignitaries cut the ribbon at the official opening of Lake View Village on Monday morning, May 10. Although it has just officially opened, it is already full and has a waiting list. “We are 100 per cent reserved at this point. We are still putting people on wait lists and taking names,” says Lillejord. Bill Bennett, MLA Kootenay East, speaking about how the Province is encouranging more senior’s and affordable housing, says, “We set up a housing fund with 250 million dollars in it and said to the Province, find community partners, find non-profits, whoever you can find who want to build senior’s housing or affordable housing, some place in the province - bring us your ideas - tell us who your partners are - tell us how you propose to finance this and we will give you some money - we don’t expect any return on it.”

Facing problems with Castlegar’s historic Brilliant Bridge reopens Suspension seniors living facilities Brilliant Bridge Re-opening In August, 2008, B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter announced a “systematic investigation into problems with seniors’ care, including residential and assisted living facilities and home support services.” Investigators visited 50 residential care and assisted living facilities from urban, suburban and rural areas and from each provincial health authority. Carter’s office received over 600 responses to the on-line questionnaire, and more than 300 phone responses. More than 200 complaint files were opened. Meetings were held in 2008 with the Minister and staff from Health Services, and the Minister and staff from Healthy Living and Sport. The investigation led to The Best of Care: Getting It Right For Seniors in British Columbia (Part 1), the Ombudsperson’s Report to the B.C. Legislature in December, 2009. This first of two reports focuses on residents of 24-hour residential care facilities. The report, available on the internet, contains ten recommendations. The two ministries have begun actions related to four of the 10. The ministries have accepted the recommendation, or the intent of the recommen-

been thinkin’ about George Millar dation, of the other six. But the proposed actions on the six are, in Carter’s opinion, “insufficient to address the problems identified.” Each facility is now required to develop and post in a prominent location a Bill of Rights for Residents. All staff, residents, and families of residents can now know what is available and expected. One recommendation was that a single, province-wide website listing all care facilities, with comparative information regarding each, be developed. This would help potential residents and their families make more informed decisions about appropriate placement. This has not happened. Given that there are some 22,000 in residential care in B.C., and that 85 per cent are 65 years old or older, Carter’s report and its recommendations have the potential to impact a lot of B.C.’s seniors and their families. Read the report, then get involved.

Celebrate the re-opening of the historic Brilliant Suspension Bridge on the Kootenay River near Castlegar on Saturday, May 22. The festivities are planned to coincide with the 63rd Annual USCC Doukhobor Union of Youth Festival at the Brilliant Cultural Centre in Castlegar whose theme this year is “Bridging Communities in Harmony.” The bridge was built by the local Doukhobor community over a seven-month period in 1913 and was used until 1966, when a new bridge was constructed. Public outcry saved the historic bridge from demolition in the 1970s and in 1991, a Working Group was formed to explore the possibility of restoring the bridge. After years of perseverance by some members of the community, the bridge was declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1995. Fundraising led to the start of restoration work last fall, which will see the bridge re-open to foot traffic only. “What a great final chapter in the story of this unique historical and cultural structure,” said Gordon Zaitsoff, Director with the Regional District of Central Kootenay. “The

restoration of the Brilliant Suspension Bridge will be a catalyst for many other endeavours to promote our community, cultural and historical resources. The project has definitely been a highlight during my tenure as a regional director. It would not be possible without the dedication of volunteers, associated provincial ministries and valued sponsors.” The official opening ceremonies will commence at the Brilliant Cultural Centre at 10 a.m. on May 22, with guest speakers and entertainment, followed by the official ribbon cutting

This week we will discuss ideas described on pages 11-13 of P.C.W. Davies’ and J. Brown’s book, Superstrings: A Theory of Everything?, published by Cambridge University Press, 1988. Recall from last week, according to Newton’s theory of gravity, gravitational forces act instantaneously across space, but this was found to violate Einstein’s special theory of relativity, since it meant gravitational effects travelled faster than the speed of light, which is not possible, as far as we know. So, what to do? Einstein took several years to come up with the General Theory of Relativity to address this problem. This week’s column describes some of the background, and next week we shall discuss aspects of this theory of Einstein’s. Einstein often developed his ideas and theories through thought experiments (this is encouraging, as we all have the apparatus to undertake thought experiments!). In one such experiment, imagine two test masses A and B inside a box and that all three of

dr. science Morgan Dehnel these items are free-falling to earth (refer to Figure 1). To minimize uncertainties in our results we would start the free-fall way above the bulk of the earth’s atmosphere to minimize air resistance. We would also minimize the mutual gravitation of test masses A and B by ensuring their masses were extremely small. Now, if we observe the masses A and B and the box in free fall as they approached the earth, they would all have the same acceleration due to gravitation, and we might assume that A and B would fall parallel to each other, and thus maintain precisely the same distance apart throughout the duration of the free-fall. However, mass A and mass B are both actually falling on trajectories towards the centre of the earth, so gradually, as the box falls

towards the earth, mass A and mass B would approach each other within the box, as shown in Figure 1. This phenomenon gave Einstein a clue for the development of the General Theory of Relativity, which we shall discuss further next week.

Thank you to the concerned readers for taking a stand on healthcare

Editorial:

Dear Editor, Many of your readers will be aware of the recent controversial issue over the proposed 25 per cent cuts to operating room time at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail and the subsequent campaign to over turn this decision. With the help of your newspaper we would like to thank all those concerned area citizens who wrote letters to their elected officials, signed the petition or were one of over 1,000 people who showed up at the Public Rally in Trail to protest these cuts. Thanks also to the elected representatives who supported this campaign. With the help of this public pressure, another meeting with IHA and the surgeons resulted in almost all the operating

room hours being restored, though sadly, not all the nurses’ hours. People in this valley are passionate about quality health care. Each community is facing unique challenges as health care budget cuts are revealed. The umbrella health activist group, Connected Communities, has contacts in communities from Nakusp to Rossland, Kaslo to Nelson, Trail and Castlegar. If we work together to advocate for quality, affordable, accessible, publicly funded health care our communities will be stronger. Keep up the pressure on your elected officials to advocate on your behalf. Sally Williams, President, Castlegar & District Health Watch.

Commentary: What are you doing for World Hepatitis Day? Shawn, age 46, was living a regular life, walking his dog, spending time at Lake Side Park, having dinner with friends, and working part time as a carpenter. He was a healthy guy that liked the outdoors, hiking, and volunteering. One day Shawn was having trouble remembering his appointments. His head had seemed a little foggy for the last couple of weeks which he had simply put off as being a little tired from work. The only thing that seemed a little out of the ordinary was a touch of the flu, which was only odd in that it was spring not the fall when he usually came down with something. Flash back to twenty years before, Shawn was living in Vancouver and life wasn’t quite as easy. A young man loose in the city with little holding him down, and lots of opportunity for risk both personal and professional, Shawn found himself falling into the warehouse DJ party

scene. He liked the music somewhat, but he really liked connecting to people and a community better, it made him feel apart of something when he began meeting folks. Back to present day Nelson, Shawn feeling ill for a few weeks, decides to check into the clinic to see the doctor. After a routine check-up the doctor suggests he get a little blood work done as precaution to determine if there is anything out of the ordinary. Otherwise Shawn seems physically fine and aside from some abdominal pain is in relative good health. Although Shawn is not a real person, his experience is reflective of many people that live here in the Kootenay region. The difference is that when our fictional character Shawn gets his blood work done it is discovered that he has a hepatitis C viral infection. Perhaps Shawn contracted it some twenty years before from a couple of risky

health decisions sharing needles, or other drug paraphernalia, unclean tattooing gear, sharing razors or toothbrushes, could have all lead to blood to blood contact and infection. Hepatitis C is known as a silent killer, as most people will show no noticeable symptoms for many years, even decades. In BC the rate of infection for hepatitis C is double the national average. There are 52,000 confirmed cases of hepatitis C in BC alone (as of 2005), with an added estimate of 20,000 people undiagnosed. The need for awareness is paramount. May 19th is World Hepatitis Day. a ANKORS is the HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C support organization for the Kootenay Boundary region.

Green space on Baker would be the best thing we can do for town

I take my dog for walks along the waterfront. It’s 8km from my house to the end and back, so it’s a great walk for me and my dog.

I just moved here, so I like looking at all the old heritage buildings and everyone’s beautiful gardens.

I am writing disgusted with the Express’ last article, ”Don’t close Baker St.” The entire article was fraught with references only to people, cars, businesses and shopping. This land that humans are conditioned to believe is a town called “Nelson” is really supposed to be an old growth forest. Where now there is pavement and asphalt, there used to reign huge, magnificent old trees with lush undergrowth; where beautiful wildlife bears, cougars, coyotes, foxes, deer, elk, birds, etc. roamed freely. All we have now are stinky, polluting, petro gorging cars noisily racing down paved streets. Once beautiful moss-covered rocks and boulders lived beside springs and streams. Peace, tranquility, and honour for the dignity of life reigned and perfect symbiotic relationships of harmony were inherent in the life that existed here. Now there are square cement blocks of buisnesses sittting on egregious asphalt. With the arrival of the Europeans, the crimes of violence and massacre of animals and nature bagan and continue uninterupted here to this day. Humans have tortured this Earth into a disaster that has gone far beyond a state of emergency. In creating a small area in Nelson that is car-free and planting more trees and plants, we are remedying, albeit in a small

way, our crimes against nature here. We would be giving back a very small part of the horrendous amount that we’ve taken. People say that having to walk an extra minute would be such an inconvenience, but what about the animals and nature that were killed and massacred to construct the roads that you drive on? Humans, give up this push button convenience mentality so that animals and nature can start to feel they have a place on their Earth, that they can start to feel safe to live and be on their Earth. Create a car-free zone, plant more trees, and more plants. Watch the birds return, watch the squirrels run up the trees and bees pollinating. I want to tell all of you, you cannot at this moment imagine how good and different you will feel walking down Baker with more trees, plants, oxygen, cleaner air, birds, squirrels, and bees. Your experience will be a quality of greater peace of mind and relaxation in body. you will begin to realize what a sanctuary this feels like in an artificial world of people, cars, buisness and shopping. by prohibiting cars and planting more green on Baker St. we are inviting nature to return in a small way. It is certainly not enough, but we gotta start somewhere. Gina Drake Crescent Valley

Marijuana use should be legal. It is the only way to have enough resources to educate the people over its dangers and potential dangers. It is also the only way compassionate, medical or other good benefits of the drug can be properly exploited in our society. Marijuana does have some potential benefits as well as potential harmful effects. Nothing we do is all good or all bad. Society has a right to put controls on certain activities. Our society says no person under the age of 19 can drink in a pub and people are not allowed to smoke cigarettes in public facilities. We have even gone so far as to not allow smoking in open areas such as parks. What would the de-criminalization of marijuana look like? That is yet to be determined. Alcohol is legal and because of education its use has been modified. Not so long ago it wasn’t uncom-

mon to hear “Do you want one more for the road?” just as you were walking out the door. Today the host takes the keys away from the drunk who wants to drive. The problems created by alcohol consumption were not solved in the USA by prohibition, but the gangs that controlled the illegal distribution of alcohol lost a major portion of their income when it became legalized. If we legalize marijuana – perhaps decriminalize might be a better word – we would have many more resources available to deal with the gangs the drug helped to create. The illegality of marijuana has not stopped or reduced its usage over the last 50 years. Recreational use of marijuana, like alcohol and cigarettes, can become a health issue. It can be discouraged by government, but not by creating criminals out of those who use or have health issues around it.

Mark Hug and May Charters wrote, directed and star in Lovers in a Dangerous Time, premiering at the Capitol on Wednesday, May 19.

Filmed entirely in Creston, but Lovers in a Dangerous Time tells a universal story JULIA GILLMOR

Lovers in a Dangerous Time Wednesday, May 19, 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St. A Fliks presentation

When Mark Hug and May Charters arrived in Creston for Hug’s 10-year high school reunion it seemed like as good a time as any to being filming their movie, Lovers In A Dangerous Time. Working as actors in Los Angeles, and collaborating on side projects, they were in search of what to do next. Hug had been mulling over a story idea surrounding the dynamic of two brothers and the struggle that existed between them. “One had made it and one hadn’t. And I said that there should be a girl. And that’s pretty much how it

started,” says Charters. “I had a camera, equipment and all kinds of gear because I had been making films. So we decide to go to the reunion and bring a camera with us.” Hug grew up on his family’s apple orchard in Creston and was studying business in Calgary when he was discovered by a modeling agency and went to work in London and New York. “Suddenly I had a lot of free time so I started taking acting classes and reading books and taught myself about film and story telling.” Growing up with parents in the biz, it wasn’t much of a leap for Charters to move into film after attending drama school in England. “My parents are film makers, my dad is a VP who shot 24 when it was still going. I guess I’m a product of being a set rat.”

Charters grew up with an old Steinbeck editing machine in her bedroom. “Maybe that infiltrated my mind,” she laughs. “It definitely affected me and I love film.” The shoot at the reunion included eight deliberately placed actors, four cameras and no second takes. “We shot live during the actual reunion and people thought we were crazy. When we got back to LA we just sat with it for a while.” What began as a short film ended up as their feature, Lovers in a Dangerous Time. They picked an old friend to serve as boom man and an author to act as cameraman, used local actors and Hug’s friends and slipped key actors into otherwise real moments. The movie stars Hug and Charters in the lead roles of Todd and Allison. He’s a local could-

have-been and she’s a successful illustrator of children’s books. The two rekindle a lost love affair from childhood, amid Todd’s difficult personal relationship with his brother. The movie brims with hope, longing and nostalgia. “The film spans the four seasons, which was my original intent. We would shoot for a couple of weeks with a crew and then drive back down to LA where we have jobs that allow us to make money, and then we would drive back up with money in our pockets and shoot for another two weeks and then we’d drive back down to LA. “We continued this process for a little over a year,” reveals Hug. But the movie still had no official script. Once the initial filming was complete and the editing began, it became evident where the holes in

the story were. “We went back up to Creston and spent a few weeks shooting to fill in all the holes. So the script was really written in the middle.” Five years later the film has covered the festival circuit, premiering at The Method Fest in LA, and picking up various awards from other festivals. “The official opening of this film tour is in Nelson. This is truly an independent venture even the distribution company is our own, based out of Boswell, BC,” says Hug. Billed as a date night movie for everyone, oozing with Canadiana and beautifully shot, Lovers In a Dangerous Time will be screening on May 19 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson. The writing, directing and actor team of Mark Hug and May Charters will be in attendance.

Scopes by Stenya May 12 - May 18 Aries Mar 21 - Apr 19

Transitions are in motion, if you allow them. Accepting and allowing change to happen in your life right now means releasing the old. Old habits, old relationships, old ideas.

Taurus Apr 20 - May 20

You are the most important person in your life this week. Take time for yourself and a break from your normal routine if you can. A new light may illuminate your preconceived notions about your close relationships.

Gemini May 21 - June 20

Your patience can be a virtue this week. Even though you may see the easy solution to your situation right now, timing is key. Sometimes you have to wait to allow others to get on the same page as you before progressing to the next step.

Cancer June 21 - Jul 22

Differences of opinions may be illuminated this week in your relationships. These differences are in opinions only, remember that everyone has their own perspective.

Leo Jul 23 - Aug 22

This is a great week to reconnect with old friends or past acquaintances. You may be surprised at who you run into unexpectedly. Take the time to catch up and you might rediscover a great connection that was lost.

This week can offer opportunities to strengthen your relationships not only with others, but with yourself. You may find yourself rediscovering talents, passions, or enjoyable hobbies that have been forgotten.

Love is in the Capricorn air this week. Take this opportunity to let new love blossom into your life. If you are already in a relationship, get ready to take things to a new level of love.

Travel is favourable this week. Your journeys can be successful if you maintain an open mind and can be flexible if plans change unexpectedly.

This is a great week to ask questions. You may be surprised at the answers. Things are not always as they seem and people’s motives may be different than you think. Gaining a deeper understanding of people close to you can improve your relationships and also yourself.

Art isn’t always on a wall

It’s great to find objects that blur the line separating fine art from basic utility. Art does not have to be limited to two-dimensional objects hung on walls, or lonely sculptures parked in a corner. Art can be enjoyed and employed. The differences between furnishings and accessories that blend aesthetic and functional values and those that remain pure art or pure utility, include originality, rarity, quality of execution and artistic vision. Textile designers have long been part of the artmeets-function industry. Many renowned artists create limited edition fabrics used for blinds, upholstery and linens. Furniture and cabinetmakers occasionally qualify as artists also. Consider, for example, David Catta’s ‘Aviator Chair’, recently displayed at Gallery 378. Not only can it hold its own as an exquisite piece of sculpture on any gallery floor, but it also represents a commitment to meticulous engineering that delivers both comfort and utility. Every year I marvel at the work of Selkirk College’s fine woodworking students. The participants clearly demonstrate

nest building Kate Bridger the marriage of form and function. The attention to detail and precision of assembly in the production of cabinets, tables and chairs confirms the artist’s hand in each piece. The fact that these same pieces are fully functional further confirms that where there is art, there can also be purpose. Turning one’s living room into a sculpture garden of functional, but unique, furnishings can be costly which is why most of us go to regular furniture shops. However, even small treasures can straddle the line between art and practicality. For example, a beautiful vase that holds water, or a pottery platter that is food-friendly, is an affordable and accessible expression of art meeting utility. Art is still great on walls, but don’t stop there; surround yourself with pieces you can sit on, eat off, walk on, or wrap yourself up in.
