WIN Store Executive Director Roxanne Heiden hands over the keys to Joshua Keely, the son of Aviva Steele and grandson of Simone Varey, who are owners of the family business Positive Apparel.

Positive Apparel fills gap of WIN Store closure JULIA GILLMOR When one door closes, another one opens. That is quite literally what is happening with Nelson’s WIN Store. Roxanne Heiden, WIN’s Executive Director has announced that the store will close on Saturday, June 26. “The West Kootenay Women in Need Society will continue, it’s not going to dissolve. We hope that there will be renewed energy on the board so they can continue ���������� to do good work in the community, but just not in the capacity of having a store,” says Heiden. “We just weren’t able to support it economically anymore. I think we were trying to do too many things and on too little money. And it ended up not even being able to be saved; we had to get out while we can.” WIN is known for the valuable resources it provides in the com-

munity. “We helped thousands of people and we helped hundreds of people though our volunteer and work program. And that really is the best work we did, providing opportunities for people.” The organization has been struggling financially and has had difficulty in maintaining a board that is keen to take on the challenges of running a retail business in difficulty. But all is not lost. For Positive Apparel, WIN’s closure presents an opportunity to move into the large retail space. “It means an opportunity to expand, because we are a very small store and it also means that our family can continue to work together. It’s me, my mom and my husband that all own the store,” says Positive Apparel’s owner, Aviva Steele. Positive Apparel gives money to local animal charities through proceeds generated at their secondhand

clothing store. The store, which currently resides at 306 Victoria St. operates in 900 square feet of space. “Its a challenge handling all the donations of clothing and supplies we receive. “We originally thought we wouldn’t be able to do it in a larger space. We all work other jobs and up until now it only took one person to run our small store. But losing the WIN Store is a huge determent to our community and we decided to step up and take on the responsibility of supplying that service. And we’re going to do our best to make it a viable business with our main goal being to take care of the animals,” adds Steele. While charitable funds go to help support low-income families afford such things as spaying and neutering for pets, for Positive Apparel, providing jobs and clothing to people in need is still a priority. “Right now we’re very

close to the Woman’s Centre and we’ll get a call saying, ‘We have a woman who has a job interview and she needs two outfits, can you help us out?’ and we’ll give them to her for free.” Steele wants to use this opportunity to build relationships with other organizations such as The Family Place, to offer clothing and house wares for families in need. “There’s also extra textile stuff and organizations that require textiles we’ll make available for free. There are all kinds of community stuff we want to do.” But the animals remain at the core of the stores intention. As for the relationship between the two stores, Steele says Heiden has been very supportive. “She has redirected donations right from the very beginning when we were first getting started. Obviously we can’t take over what the WIN Store has established but we really want the community to know

���������� ��������

that we are open and we want to build relationships. What we’d like is to have people come and tell us what their needs are so we can create those types of relationships.” Heiden laments the loss of job opportunities with the closing of the store. WIN has provided a valuable training ground for ���individuals ����������������������������� with special needs have gained real life work � who������������������ experience. “Having special people on your staff really ���needs ��������������������� enriches the work environment. I think people don’t always ���And������������������ know that. And it’s something that I want people to know, that once people with special needs get trained they are so consistent and so reliable. You don’t get that kind of reliability from very many people.” WIN closes it’s doors on June 26. Positive Apparel will be opening in its place. Opening day is to be announced.

Ideas tabled to restore waterfront

City found guilty of defamation

In the 1990’s the Prestige Inn and the City of Nelson cooperated in forming fish habitat to mitigate the loss of shoreline around the Prestige Inn. Several spurs of land were created or enhanced along the West Waterfront Pathway under the supervision of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). Since then the spurs have steadily eroded, affecting the mitigation. A recent initiative for restoring the shoreline was put forth between Selkirk College Integrated

On May 13, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled against The City of Nelson, former Police Chief, Constable Brock and Sgt. Howard Grant finding them liable for defamation against Sherrill Boehmke in a case dating back to 2000. When Boehmke reported a tip regarding vandalism that had occurred in the Lion’s Park in May of 2000, a series of conversations and events unfolded that led to Boehmke filing a defamation lawsuit “imputing unfitness for Beohmke to practice her trade as Justice of the Peace.”

Environmental Planning and local erosion control specialist Pierre Raymond to tackle the erosion using riprap from the highway expansion project. The restoration project was presented to council who referred the matter back to staff. Staff is requested to contact the DFO and Ministry of Environment to discuss the matters further. Council’s concern was around accepting of the materials before receiving approval from DFO to use it.

The Honourable Justice Harvey released his ruling surrounding the case and finding the defendants liable, awarded damages to the plaintiff. Harvey wrote in his judgment, ”In assessing general damages, I take into account the obvious and significant effect of the words upon the plaintiff, and the fact that no retraction or apology was forthcoming at any time following publication of the statement.” The City declined statement and Boehmke was not available for comment at the time of publication.

Once bitten, twice shy: if a garden is planted too early, frost will surely take its toll When daytime temperatures reached a balmy 20 degrees in mid May, I made a unilateral decision to get my tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers outside and into the garden boxes. After hardening them off for a few days they were ready to meet the great outdoors. Knowing that these plants are susceptible to low temperatures I kept a close eye on weather

reports and thermometer readings. After checking previous years’ planting calendars I was doubly assured that my decision to plant during the third week of May was okay. While weather reports and actual temperatures never seem to coincide, both suggested that frost was not a concern. Not willing to throw all caution to the wind, I thought it wise to be on

the edges, and readied the sprinklers just in case temperatures dipped too far. Good safety measures can be a fine thing, but in this case my strategy was not enough to deter the bite of Jack Frost. In spite of precautionary actions I was disheartened one morning by the effects of below average temperatures, and by my misreading of our late spring weather. Jack visited parts

of the Slocan Valley for the next three nights, finding his way under protective layers, leaving a sheet of ice on bird baths and generally doing no good at all. After seeing the full effects of the frost that laid siege to my not-so-early plantings, I set out to find replacements since I had already, and happily, given away all of my extra starts. In that search I learned that over planting isn’t only my

affliction, (see ‘Sharing the Bounty’, May 12th), but also that of good friends who sent their extra tomatoes and eggplants my way when hearing about my frost damaged plants. I have learned a lot in this unusual growing season, but the words that ring loudest come from my life-long gardening mother - “Don’t plant until May 24th!”

the safe side of gardening even though hard frost was not predicted. Each night I draped the garden boxes with remay cloth and sheets, weighted down Helen Sebelius is a gardener and artist who owns and operates Against the Wind Nursery in the Slocan Valley.

Take these opportunities to visit the Community First Health Co-op In the seven years since its inception, the Community First Health Co-op has developed into an organization of significance on the local heathcare scene. This month you will have two opportunities to visit the Co-op’s Wellness Centre at 518 Lake Street to see what the Co-op has accomplished, and what it aspires to become. Their Celebration of Wellness open house from 1 to 3 on Saturday, June 19 will feature the Community Health Resource Centre. The nine organizations that work to fundraise and educate regarding chronic ���������� disease conditions will have their information kiosks staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. The nine wellness partners will also have their areas on display, showcasing services that each workspace provides.

���

With the range of traditional and alternative medical personnel on-site, the Wellness Centre is close to being a “one-stop” health centre. Health practitioners such as dentists and optometrists are not yet represented, but space is available. The Co-op’s AGM will take place on Thursday, June 24, at 7 p.m. Tours of the building start at 6 p.m. Pharmacist Mark McBride will present information about the pharmaceutical industry. Reports regarding ongoing activities and future projects will be given. The Co-op is working toward establishing affordable housing. One future goal is to provide home support workers. Educational and prevention seminars are ongoing activities. Rentals from wellness

Eco Centric: The movement to catch all movements There’s a new book in town, and a growing number of mothers that support the idea behind it; it’s called The Diaper Free Baby. The concept isn’t new; before diaper manufacturers came along, parents were more tuned in to the needs of our children. Have you ever wondered how the rest of the world manages, the ones that can’t afford diapers? Those women pay attention and are able to cue their babies to go. This method of paying attention and using cues is commonly called “elimination com-

���������� ��������

munication” (EC). For today’s child, diaper rash is a common ailment, especially since a baby’s skin is only one fifth the thickness of an adult’s. Think how unhygienic it is to sit in a poopy diaper – this is not an issue for babies who are trained by EC. These babies are also less likely to become bed-wetting toddlers as they grow up. So why not entertain the idea that our children do not need to be diapered for three years of their life? All it takes is a willingness to bring more mindfulness to

eco centric Natalka Podstawskyj the relationship with your child. The average child used to be diapered for one year and breastfed for three; now it’s reversed. What is the cost this is having on our children’s health, wellbeing and self-esteem? What is the cost to our environment? Disposable diapers comprise four per cent of landfill volume. If you think environmentally friendly disposables are better, then

you should know that they require oxygen to break down. So unless they happen to land on top of the landfill they are going to be around for a very long time. Last summer my partner and I had our first child and we decided to try EC. To say that we are completely diaper free at 11 months is not true - we use cloth as a backup. For those who think cloth is too much work, a diaper service is an option. There is definitely a business opportunity for a diaper service in Nelson.

Results published next week! Two weeks ago we asked, “Should the government be providing subsidized housing?” “If tax dollars were working properly, we should all have good paying jobs and could afford housing.”

36.4%: We should establish rent controls 68.2%: Yes - only for the most needy

“People should not have to pay the bulk of their income on housing. We all need enough money to feel free to spend it on food, arts, recreation, education, travel in order to live and enjoy a full life.”

9.1%: No

“Another way to help things would be re-instate funding for housing coops in B.C. The last capital funding for the creation of new Co-ops was in 1994. Co-ops provide a sense of community and encourage involvement and care for dwellings where often low income apartments are not very pleasant to live in.” “Prices are reasonable for working families. If on social assistance, people should live outside Nelson were housing is cheaper.”

“If a person can rent for twenty years why can’t he get a mortgage? It’s a bogus system.” “Housing is a basic right and should be affordable for all.” “Rent controls - only if landlord can still afford mortgage.” “It’s cheaper (not to mention more humane) to help people pay their way rather than rescue them after they fail.” “Keep rent low for low income people.”

47 respondants - 71.1% own their home - 50% feel their mortgage is average - 5.6% think it’s too high

Last week we asked, “Should Nelson expand it’s borders?” North Shore

“Nelson is the main service centre for this area and in order to ensure that facilities and services can be kept up-to-date, innovative and current, all taxpayers in this area should continue the tax base.” “Expansion is a good thing for the future of Nelson.” “This may relieve our taxes and incorporate the wealthier North Shore Residents.” “Taxes would go up with no advantages.”

Slocan Junction

“We would be included in this expansion and I care deeply about City issues, as a resident of Blewett.” “I live in the country because there are very few rules. No thanks on the petty tyranny.” “The City cannot manage the area currently within the boundary.” “Those of us who live in my rural neighborhood are not “city dwellers” and would generally not take kindly to paying city taxes.”

the rest mass of a particle. The rest mass is the mass of a particle or object when it is not moving. E = mc2 enables us to calculate how much rest mass a given amount of energy could be converted into, or, for example, how much energy a given amount of rest mass could be converted into. For the case of a photon, it is always on the move, and since it is never at rest, it does not have a rest mass. So part of the answer to Chris’ question is that a photon does not have a rest mass. However, a photon does have energy, and it turns

out that there is a gravity field associated with the energy of a photon. One reference on this topic is W.B. Bonnor, “The Gravitational Field of Photons”, Journal of General Relativity and Gravity, Springer Netherlands, Volume 41, Number 1, January 2009. In this article it is stated, for example, “the gravitational field of a photon on an infinite straight path is a single sheet of planefronted gravitational wave accompanying the photon and perpendicular to its track”. The gravitational field of a photon would be exceedingly small. Gravity waves from the acceleration of very massive objects such as an exploding supernova are very difficult for humans to measure, as shall be described next week, so the gravity wave of a photon is exceedingly small.

Well, I’ve had a productive week talking to guitarists on Baker Street. Thank you very much to Chris for permitting me to write a Dr. Science column about our discussion. Chris had a question related to Einstein’s equation E = mc2 (where E = energy, m = rest mass, c = speed of light in vacuum). If I recall our conversation correctly, Chris noted that a form of pure energy such as light (also known as a photon) can be equated to an equivalent mass through Einstein’s equation. Therefore, could it be said that energy and mass are the same, and, therefore in this example, if the photon is associated with a particular equivalent mass, does the photon then have a gravitational field? It turns out that the “m” in ���������� Einstein’s equation E = mc2 corresponds to

opinions&letters

A public square shouldn’t be something we say no to Dear Editor, Welcome to Nelson - the town that says ‘no’ too long. Maybe I’m unfair to our town, but it seems we’re good at putting obstacles on the path to things we truly need and want. A partial list at random: a youth skate park, our rec complex (three referenda), our much appreciated (now) Touchstones Museum, a labyrinth, an attractive development on the former KFP lands, the Prestige Inn Conference Hotel, the walking path on the lake front. We have a history of being slow to finish these very projects that, as soon as they’re done, we use a lot. Maybe it’s the notorious “culture of protest” or the civic left/right polarity.

Whatever it is, it holds us back. My personal grievance is the lack of a public square. People spontaneously try to make a gathering place in private space such a cafe, restaurant or bar street patios, or the Baker/Ward bus stop. But these are inadequate. Fine - don’t close any part of Baker Street, but create some central downtown public square. This town is absolutely ripe and right for a civic plaza for pedestrians. Once we have one we’ll wonder how we managed without it. “No” is easy, but talk is cheap. Charles Jeanes Nelson

Commentary: Addressing health care in Kaslo No. I like it just the way it is and think it should stay this way.

Lisa Klave, Nelson

Before a decision like that is made I would hope there would be information released about how it will effect bylaws and taxes.

Kelly Shpeley, Nelson

The other day, I stood up in the House to ask the Minister of Health a question during Question Period. This is the daily time when MLAs who are not Ministers, called Private Members, ask questions of the Government. It’s a significant part -albeit short because it lasts only 30 minutes-- of each day where the Government is held accountable for its choices. So when the Ministry of Health’s IHA decided to cut primary healthcare services in Kaslo, I took the opportunity to ask the Minister why he would allow for such a poor decision. Primary care ultimately saves the health system money, and keeps people healthy. Considering the Minister ahs recognized this in the past, why make this cut to a best practice? A perfectly legitimate question at a perfectly legitimate time to ask it. The Minister retorted with condescension. So I asked him again, bellying up all the passion and concern people at the North end of Kootenay

In the House Michelle Mungall MLA Nelson-Creston Lake displayed during my Kalso community forum on healthcare. A packed Langham Theatre gave me direction on what they wanted from their healthcare system, and I brought that to the Minister with the support of all 34 of my Opposition colleagues. You can watch the exchange between the Minister and me at my website, www. michellemungall.com. It feels great ...actually, it is exhilarating and rewarding to be taking your voice to the BC Legislature. Even though I often don’t get the answers I would like when I bring your concerns to the BC Liberal Government, I continue to advocate and press them on the issues important to us. Sometimes I can say that we got what we wanted –like when funding was restored for

domestic violence services or for the Capitol Theatre. Along with bringing your questions to the BC Liberal Government, I have taken on other roles within the Legislature. I continue to sit on the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services which has two main functions. First, we seek public input into the annual provincial budget, and second, we provide budgetary oversight to the independent officers of the Legislature. The Official Opposition Women’s Caucus is another committee in which I play an active role. All twelve NDP women MLAs meet regularly to look at legislation, policies and actions that can improve women’s equality in BC, and bring attention to issues that impact women and girls. As the Chair, I not only work with all my colleagues, but I work with women’s and community groups throughout BC to ensure safety and social justice is available to everyone.

Editorial:

Extend Nelson’s borders The creation of a Greater Nelson is inevitable. Nelson and its service area are growing in population. That growth can translate into additional services or lower taxes that can benefit everyone. Let us prepare now. We have a City of Nelson Government and we have a Regional District of Central Kootenay Government. Both Governments have their own buildings and staff. Although there is a sharing of some resources, there is separation. There are three reasons I can think of why nearby communities should want to be part of a greater Nelson. We have an administrative overlap. Some financial and other administrative tasks could be combined under one department. Both Governments have departments that might be able to merge either wholly or partially. We have had and will continue to have conflicts between our two governments. Consider our recre-

ation facility or our library and the conflicts between rural and urban users. These are services used by people in Nelson and also people living nearby. There is a disconnect between financial support and level of use. If we had one level of government, then at least some conflicts would cease to exist. Perhaps the most important reason is to extend the city limit is to extend quality services. The two services that come to mind are sewer and water supply. These are basic needs and we should work together to ensure equal services for all. While there are good reasons to have a greater Nelson, our survey seems to show people are not yet ready for it. In the meantime, we should continue to look for ways to share resources. More efficient use of our tax dollars will mean increased services or lower taxes.

Letters to the editor & commentaries We encourage our readers to write to us. Please address letters meant for publication to the editor. We do not accept open letters.

We will not print “name withheld” letters. Opinions in the paper are not necessarily those of the Express or its advertisers.

Fish Heads and Flowers No, thank you. I haven’t seen the city manage it’s budget in an efficient matter and I don’t want the city making decision for me.

Jakob Simek, 3 Mile

Its a question that should be answered by those affected. The people outside city limits should be the only ones voting on it.

Sarah Hicks, Nelson

Flowers each of my amazing kids. I am the luckiest mummy in the world to have you guys! - Lucky Mummy Fish Heads to poor landlords for your lack of courtesy and professionalism. You allow unemployed, party-going tenants live in this household, and you don’t understand where I’m coming from? Sleepless and sick of being ignored Flowers to the wonderful soul who found my paycheck on the ground and did the right thing to return it to the creditunion. You saved a students butt. - Works hard for his money Fish Heads to people

slagging music teachers and lumping us all together. I and all my musician low-lifes have helped a multitude of causes. So, when a music teacher charges what is fair after years (decades) of training, that’s ok. My kids take lessons from awesome teachers and it’s worth every cent! - Giving musician Flowers to the person who removed my castiron butterfly grate from my garden and plopped it into my neighbor’s yard. I have made a new friend, she has graciously returned my grate, and now we are both very watchful. - Blessed with a new friend

Fish Heads to shop owners who hose the dirt off their sidewalks onto our vehicles. Your lack of respect for other peoples property keeps me from spending my money in your businesses. - Respectful of others Flowers to the land owner who not only allows riverfront public access, he put a bench on the trail for folks to sit on! - Grateful dogwalker Fish Heads to people who burn garbage in their wood stoves. You are a stink to your neighbours as you poison the air. Can’t breathe Flowers to the kind person who picked up the card I dropped at the

mall, put a stamp on it and mailed it! My mom got it and loved all the photos inside. - Happy to see there are still good people out there Fish Heads to cyclists that ride two or more abreast: It is illegal to ride side-by-side on the roadway. I think it’s great to cycle, have fun, and cut down on greenhouse gases but please save your socializing for after the ride! - Single file for safety Flowers to the incredible teens of this town for dancing so beautifully and feeding our souls. Nourished Fish Heads to the man carrying fish fertilizer

(appropriately enough) who was so rude to me. I was only doing my job as per store policy. Flowers to your son who nudged you out of the gate. Didn’t deserve your guff Flowers to my old boss for helping me find work closer to home. May the next 24 be better than your last 48. - Erronius Fish Heads to the owners of the dog who’s been using out driveway for his business. Would you like to come get it or do you want it delivered? - Brown suede shoes Flowers to those who make eye contact. Listening to you

Michitsugu Umewaka on shamisen (three stringed instrument), Shuichiro Asano on shamisen, Eriko Asano, vocals, Tetsuya Fujii on shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) and Haruka Asano, vocals and taiko.

Umewakakai Friday, June 11, 7:30 p.m. at the Nelson United Church, 602 Silica St.

Umewakakai, a Japanese folk music group is preparing to begin their first official Western Canadian tour in June. Lead singer, Eriko Asano, at the age of 25, has already won fourteen Japan Min’yo championships and is a leading star of the Japanese Folk music scene. Eriko’s sisterin-law, Haruka Asano moved to Akita for an apprenticeship with Umewaka

Asano. From age 13, and has won many awards. The group has two Shamisen (three stringed instrument) players and one Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) player as accompanists. They also add Taiko drum for the performances. The Umewaka song style originated in Akita, Japan under the founder, folk singer and shamisen player, Umewaka Asano (1911-2006). Born in Akita city, he was one of the most famous award winning Min’yo musicians in all of Japan. Coordinating the Canadian tour, which

will perform at seven venues in five cities, through the Kootenays and Alberta, is Yukiko Tsutsui, a native of Akita and resident of Nelson. Tsutsui has been hosting Japanese Musiquest on Kootenay Coop since 2007 as a way to introduce Japanese music to the community. “I wanted to bring something really special to this area through my passion for music. This is a truly rare opportunity to see one of the best first-class Japanese traditional music ensembles, from my hometown,” she says.

The group hopes this tour will help build a cultural bridge between Canada and Japan. They will be performing on Friday, June 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Nelson United Church. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Eddy Music and online at www.umewaka.jpn.org. For further information, visit www. myspace.com/asanoshamisen. - submitted

Pay attention to the details, even the mundane ones like paper work. They are important too. Complete any unfinished boring mundane details as they could be holding back your progress. You may even find unexpected positives results or even financial gains.

Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19

Time to tie up any loose ends this week. Before progressing to developing new ideas make sure you are ready by clearing the clutter or finishing your other projects on your to-do list. This can allow the time and space needed for your ideas to really begin to develop.

Aquarius Jan 20 - Feb 18

Team work is the key this week. When you try to do everything by yourself you can not only burn yourself out, but burn your bridges as well. Working with others can be extremely rewarding and this also allows for creative collaboration.

Pisces Feb 19 - Mar 20

Take time to contemplate your contemplative thoughts this week. It is important to find quiet space with just yourself to reflect and review how you are feeling. What are you holding back? How can bring the things that you want into your life right now? What can you let go of?
