��������� Filmmakers surprise local producers �������� at Summer Shorts Film Festival ‘10 ���������� SUBMITTED

L to R: Summer Shorts sponsor Nelson Becker, Kevin DeWalt (Producer), Pascal Laugier (Director/Writer), Clement Miserez (Producer), and festival winner Joanne Aleric at the Summer Shorts Film Festival held Sunday, August 29.

���������� ����� ���������� ���������� �������� SHARMAINE GRAY

Kevin DeWalt of Mind’s Eye Entertainment is filming a feature-length movie, The Tall Man, which will feature Nelson and Salmo as filming locales. The ����������movie is a suspense/ Canadian-content thriller starring Jessica Biel. The film is an independent Canadian production and has no ties to Hollywood. Filming is to start sometime in October and is expected to run into November. His production company, Tall Man Productions, recently donated cash prize awards that were given to the top two winning entries at the recent Express Summer Short Film Festival. As a filmmaker, Mr. DeWalt believes in giving back to the communities that help support his filmmaking.


By funding this award, he sought to make a only one first place prize of $500 but two entries were of such a high caliber that first direct contribution to filmmaking in Nelson. When asked about his experience at the place was awarded to both contestants and Summer Shorts Festival, he said that “It a second $500 prize given. ����������������������������� In the case of Our Bus, the young filmwas a great experience.” and that he was ���������� “taken aback by the size of the crowd” as maker, Joanne Alaric, follows students as well as by the wide range of people who they travel by school bus to and from ����������������������������� attended. He could see that the event was school. The interpersonal dynamics that ���������� of considerable importance to a broad arise in this situation were a revelation section of the community.

Mr. DeWalt found this story “very moving.” and remarked that the quality of the film was excellent, with the look and the timing being particularly remarkable. This last Sunday and Monday, a casting call was held for The Tall Man at the North Shore Hall. If more applicants are required, new postings will be put up around town for a second casting call to be made in the very near future. When asked how the community might support him in his endeavours, he replied that we “welcome the team with open arms.”

At present it is believed that there was a “Big Bang” that occurred many billions of years ago, and in the early moments of this bang the protons, neutrons and electrons were created (other stuff too, but the particles listed here are the ones related to your question). The protons, neutrons and electrons shot out, and wherever there was a large enough accumulation of them their mutual gravity would start to coalesce these particles together into a spherical shape (star formation). Once the pressures and temperatures got high enough, the hydrogen nuclei and neutrons (i.e. protons) would fuse to form helium nuclei (two protons and two neutrons). When this fusion process happens energy is released and the star really gets going and emits light and the temperatures stay high. Stars such as our sun will fuse hydrogen nuclei to form helium nuclei for billions of years, but at a time when there is enough helium present then the helium too starts to fuse

dr. science Morgan Dehnel together to form other more complicated elements such as lithium and oxygen and carbon and all the elements. In fact portions of these star reactions that form the heavier elements are studied at TRIUMF at UBC in Vancouver where there is an ISAC facility (Isotope Separation and Acceleration). What this facility does is to look at specific heavier element reactions in stars to determine the reaction rates and to learn about, in fact, your question, as to where do the elements come from and why do some have higher proportions. So far in this story, you can see that older stars start creating the heavier elements by fusing together the lighter element nuclei. Ok, at some point depending on the

star’s size it explodes as a supernova, and all those elements get distributed through space, and then some of them coalesce together again due to their mutual gravity into planets. Certainly there would be a fair amount of hydrogen in these proto-planets and a certain percentage of oxygen (and all of the stable elements), and through chemical reactions such as hydrogen burning (i.e. oxidation of hydrogen) water is formed. In fact, oxygen is very reactive, and there are a number of chemical reactions involving water as an end-product. It is believed though that the early atmosphere did not have much oxygen, and it was through the chemical reactions involved in the carbon-dioxide respiration of plants that resulted in oxygen being removed from the carbon-dioxide and liberated into the atmosphere. In addition, there are many chemical oxidation reactions involving compounds and molecules that contain hydrogen and oxygen which result in water as a by-product.

RDCK approves sustainability tax

Money will be used to support Carbon Neutral Kootenays, climate change initiatives MOSANG MILES The Board of Directors of the Regional District of Central Kootenay passed a bylaw at its Thursday, August 26 board meeting, approving a property value tax of up to 2.4 cents per $1,000 to create a community sustainability fund. The city of Nelson was to decide whether to participate in this tax—and thus usage of the resulting funds—at its Tuesday, Sept. 7 council meeting. At press time city council’s decision was not known. The bylaw is currently in the RDCK’s alternative approval process. Over the past six months, 19 of the RDCK’s 20 municipalities and electoral areas have signed on to this tax. Jim Gustafson, Chief ���������� Administrative Officer of the RDCK, says the Community Sustainable


Living Service bylaw would start generating funds in 2011 to deal with issues associated with community sustainability—everything that has long-term impacts on the community. Climate change in particular, says Gustafson, was the rationale for creating this fund. Andy Shadrack, RDCK director for Area D, says funds will go towards the Carbon Neutral Kootenays project to help actively lower the region’s carbon emissions in accordance with the BC provincial government’s Climate Action Charter. “When we signed on to the provincial government’s climate charter, I was hoping that we would actually get down to beginning to lower our greenhouse gas emissions,” Shadrack says. “This is a way of working together to do that.”

An example of a project that could receive funding from the new service, says Shadrack, recently took place in Kaslo—a year long climate adaption study about food security and water. Money collected through this new bylaw could help fund more work around those issues. As well, he says, “There’s a range of sustainable community services or issues that we can look at through this service.” Shadrack says it’s important for the region to commit to lowering climate change, as the Climate Action Charter calls for every local government in the province to lower carbon emissions by 2012. Gustafson says the specific amount of the tax, up to 2.4 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, will be decided when the next RDCK budget is laid out in early 2011.

WorldSign was developed by David Orcutt, for over 40 years, combining American Sign Language, North American Native signs and common gestures recognised throughout the world. WorldSign is a gestered sign language and is accompanied with SymbolVision: a written symbol depicting each gesture. This combination of a gestured and written sign language is unique to WorldSign and creates many possibilities. The reality of current sign languages today is that they are “language specific”. This means that someone who knows American Sign Language cannot communtcate with someone, for example, from Germany. WorldSign can connect languages and culture around the globe. Many applications exist for WorldSign. WorldSign can be useful for any form of ���������� communication based activity for babies



and toddlers, teachers and caregivers, people with limited communication skills (eg. persons born with disabilities or with communication difficulties resulting from accidents, strokes or injuries), and for creative performance art. These are a few applications for WorldSign, however there are many ways WorldSign can be helpful or rewarding to learn and utilize. Students will pick up the signs very quickly as the gestures are based on simple and natural movements. It is the hope of WorldSign Communication Society and its volunteers that this wonderful language to be spoken throughout the world. With Orcutt’s passing last summer, the society continues the mission of sharing this man’s life work. Please contact Angela at 250-355-2408 or 250-551-2799 or at world_sign@yahoo. com for more information or to register.

opinion&editorial Street Talk: How can the city attract more tourism dollars?

What's with the 'no dogs on Baker’ bylaw? Dear Nelson, Although I live outside your beautiful town, I visit a number of times a year, my wife grew up here. We love it, the people, the place, the “vibe”. Living in another “transient” town (Canmore, AB) I know the problems that tourist destinations face, but the one thing that I don’t get is the ban on dogs on Baker Street. From discussions I’ve had with locals, the ban was/is in place to discourage people from hanging out downtown with their dogs, tying them to poles/trees and the obvious problems with poop and pee. But, for a town that relies heavily on the tourism industry, answer the question for

me - where do tourists with tents and RVs go when they have their dogs with them? We can’t leave them in my RV/camper/ tent site, I certainly can’t leave them in my car, and I can’t take them (legally) on Baker Street. I do salute you for not actively ticketing people, everybody I’ve seen with a dog over the past few weeks, the dogs and owners I’ve seen have kept their pets on a short leash and picked up when necessary. Maybe it’s time to make a change to the bylaw? Here’s hoping... Robert VanderLee Canmore, AB

You can't take the gay out of Pride

Better signs. We got lost a few times trying to find things. Matt Clark Helena, Washington

Dear Editor, First off, to Don Crowe, organizer of this year’s “Kootenay Pride” I applaud him and the gay pride committee for getting pride together this year. Great job and many thanks. But, I am so angry about them changing the name of Kootenay Gay Pride to Kootenay Pride I must comment. I disagree that just calling the Gay Pride Parade,, Kootenay Pride is more inclusive of our community. Our community has

tremendous pride and is generally inclusive of all of its citizens. But, it is fundamental that the community at large (heterosexuals who face no discrimination whatsoever) support Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Two-spirited, and pride. The Gay umbrella under which we ALL march can not be taken away. Our straight brothers and sisters have always been welcomed to march and party with us for Gay Pride, and many have. But masking our identity, deny-

the Question:

Do you have too much ‘stuff’?


THERE is a thin line that separates nostalgic collectors and obsessive pack-rats. Often storage method and presentation can determine whether the clutter is manageable or oppressive.

Reprinted from Sept 9/09 issue

YARD sale... and left overs are free at the end of the day. Or on to the thrift stores for good usable items.

IT seems just about everybody has too much stuff.


FUNNY that you should ask that. I was brought up in a time and place where string, usable paper, bottles, pieces of metal, anything that may be useful to repair something else was never thrown away. In fact our town had no ‘garbage dump’.

Publisher’s Note: Nelson Becker

Put the brakes on rezoning Stop all waterfront rezoning and the issuing of development permits. Stop until our city council has approved a comprehensive waterfront development master plan and incorporated it as part of our Official Community Plan (OPC). Zoning deals with issues of height, residential density, and use as commercial, park or residential space, among other purposes. Nelson City Council is in the process of developing a master plan for both our waterfront and for our downtown area, so it only makes sense to put a pause on discussions with any developers until we have figured out, on our own, what it is that we want. Our city councillors must take charge in this situation because this is a policy decision. They must not be swayed by the developers’ pleas for urgency.

The waterfront deveopment of Kootenay Landing Development and Red Sands beach have been causes of local conflict. The other areas of our waterfront, which are going to need future development, is our very own transfer station located at the most beautiful spot on the lake and the CP Rail lands, which will eventually come under our control. Now is the time to think about this. A comprehensive development plan will serve everyone. It will serve the community because the community has had a say in the kind of development they want to see; it will serve the developers because they will now know what they are getting involved in; it will serve our city council because with a comprehensive development plan already in place, there will be less conflict within the community.

ing our pride march to be called Gay Pride is colluding with the very homophobic notions that make us march in the first place. Until I am never ridiculed and called a God Darn dyke, until hate crimes against gays and lesbians stop, we should always call our parade Kootenay Gay Pride! Visibility, being OUT, is what it takes to help stop homophobia and create understanding and acceptance. Nancy Rosenblum Nelson

Shelter: How We Live

Opens Friday, Sept. 17, 7-9 p.m. at Touchstones, 502 Vernon St. Exhibit runs Saturday, Sept. 18 to Sunday, Nov. 14 at Touchstones, 502 Vernon St.

What do pallet houses and couch surfing have in common? They are both elements of Shelter: how we live, an exciting new exhibit opening on Friday, Sept. 17 at Touchstones Nelson. The exhibit will look at shelter from differing perspectives, including homelessness, green building and affordable housing. “These are critical issues in Nelson,” said exhibit curator Rod Taylor, “but they’re often considered in isolation, when in reality I think they’re very interconnected.” Highlights will include a typical homeless campsite and an actual pallet house installed in the gallery, as well as panels featuring local and BC green and affordable housing projects. But in addition to the promise of such an interesting and engaging installation, Taylor says the intention is for the material installed in the gallery to act as a catalyst for something he considers to be of equal importance; discussion, both in the gallery and out of it. At the opening, for example, the gallery

will be supplying “conversation tags” for people with experience in related areas to wear, bearing a short description of what they’d like to talk about. According to Taylor, “We have some amazing people in this community - architects, designers, people from social service agencies, and others with real experience in these areas who will be making themselves available to talk at the opening if you want to - it’s a pretty cool opportunity.” Also held in conjunction with the exhibit will be 10 square, a juried micro-building design competition, and a forum on on Tuesday, October 19 from 6-9 p.m. on low cost housing solutions that Touchstones Nelson is partnering with SPAN (Social Planning and Action Network) to develop. To find out more about the exhibit, including to sign up for your own “conversation tag” or the 10 square design competition, you can visit the Shelter blog at, or email Shelter: How We Live is made possible by the generous support of the Columbia Basin Trust, David Dobie Design and In The Koots. For information call 250-3529813. - Submitted by Touchstones


Shelter is a unique exhibit and forum for discussion about the current state of housing, green building and related issues.

Water on the Table film presentation Friday, Sept. 17, 7 p.m. at the Nelson United Church, 602 Silica St.

“Is water a commercial good like running shoes or coca-cola? Or, is water a human right like air?” This is the question posed by Liz Marshall, as she tours across Canada with her new film `Water on the Table`. The film features Canadian Maude Barlow who is considered an “international water-warrior” for her crusade to have water declared a human right: “Water must be declared a public trust and a human right that belongs to the people, the ecosystem and the future, and preserved for all time and practice in law. Clean water must be delivered as a public service, not a profitable commodity.” Local MLA Michelle Mungall is co-sponsoring both film nights. “The Columbia Basin is home to one of the world’s largest fresh water concentrations,” Mungall says, “so the question of how we use our water is one that we need to act upon.” The documentary explores Canada’s

relationship to freshwater, arguably its most precious natural resource. At stake in Barlow’s crusade is humanity’s own right to the liquid that sustains all life - balanced against powerful interests that insist water is just another resource to be bought and sold. Barlow’s opponents; policy and economic experts in Canada and the U.S., argue that water is no different than any other resource and that the best way to protect freshwater is to privatize it. It is proposed that Canada bulkexport its water to the United States in the face of an imminent water crisis.

his charismatic delivery of humour. It has been said by many people that his delivery is too fast, and that most crowds can’t keep up to his pace. However, most people keep up because he is so funny, they simply don’t want to miss anything. Orr has toured extensively in Western Canada and the US. He has played many fairs and civic celebrations, bonspeils, ball tournaments, and even the main stage at the Calgary Stampede. Orr is not just an entertainer, he is an experience. If you have the opportunity to catch the show, don’t miss it.

Sergio Raffo Exhibition Opening


Friday, Sept. 10, 7 p.m. at Oxygen Art Centre, 320 Vernon St., alley entrance

Saturday, Sept. 11, 7-9 p.m. at the Langham Gallery, 447 A Ave., Kaslo

Sergio Raffo’s upcoming exhibition, Seduced, is a stunning installation of four or more life-sized ceramic and metal figures from his Terrenales series. Originally from Cuba but now living in Kaslo, Raffo masterfully combines exquisite forms with astounding technical expertise. The primary focus of his work is in giving his ceramics a character that provokes interaction and an intimate, real experience. His work is grounded in both materials and process, and speaks about the human condition, with all its imperfections and scars.

The Langham Gallery presents “Apocalicious” by Vancouver artist, Willow Yamauchi. Yamauchi’s bright acrylics depict visions of a post-human world populated by fantastic creatures, reminiscent of a cross between modern First Nation art and Japanese Manga. This exhibition will be showing in the gallery until Sunday, October 31.

The Milk Pipes and Cheddar Bunnies celebrate Jenna’s birthday Saturday, Sept. 11, 9 p.m. at Finley’s, 705 Vernon St.

How do you celebrate the birthday of a great big personality like local IMTV host Jenna Raider? You lure her first rockin’ band here from the coast and you throw in some on-stage cat fights and some prime-minister toilet art, that’s what ya do! Once known as The Hillbilly, The Hippie and The Anarchist and sounding like a ’63 Impala comin’ sideways round a corner on two wheels, The Milk Pipes always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Three years and over 50 rock shows on, armed with bassist Cliff “Cinqo” Rogers and a new album almost in the can, The Pipes are having the kind of good time that

can only come from within. They are a band of brothers who always share their beer... until it’s the last one, then it’s war! Local chick shock rockers the Cheddar Bunnies will be returning to their hairy roots by playing the venue of their debut show. Four wacky shows over four months later, they are just starting to melt the cheese with such crowd favorites as ‘Pork Butt Luck’, ‘Prick Flick’, ‘Almost Switching Teams’ and ‘Obama he is hot, Stephen Harper he is not’. - submitted by the Cheddar Bunnies

You might have guessed that books are my thing. New book, used books, library books: it’s all about the printed word. Surrounded by books, I can hear the whisperings of writers, and that makes me feel like I’m in good company all the time. In our Friends of the Library book sorting room, what began as a few books whispering has become quite the cacophony. There are thousands of donated or former library books getting ready for the annual Friends of the Library book sale, chatting amongst themselves, comparing notes, placing bets on who’ll be snatched up first. You get strange bedfellows in a Friends book sale: Leo Tolstoy snuggled up against Danielle Steel, or West Coast Smoke cheek by jowl with the Illustrated History of the RCMP. There are books for kids and teens, adults and seniors, on every subject you can imagine. There are videos, cassette books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, and magazines. There are rare treasures, and there are not-so-rare finds that might be treasures to you. They all have something to say. The Friends book sale has been an annual event at least two decades. By the time the day arrives, there’s a hushed expectancy among the books. You

check this out Anne DeGrace can sense them smiling, putting their best cover forward. Take me home they say, straightening their spines. Let me tell you a tale by the fire, say the hot bestsellers, while the romances want you to take them to bed and the mysteries aren’t giving anything up just yet. Humour books wink; exercise books nudge; cookbooks entice. If you assume 5,000 books in an annual Friends sale and multiply it by 20 years, that’s 100,000 books who’ve found happy homes to date. That’s quite a service. What’s more of a service, though, is the annual money raised by the Friends, used to purchase furnishings and equipment for the Library. Most years, the Friends raise about $3,000 during the two-day event. The Friends of the Library book sale is Friday, Sept. 17 from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. After 3 p.m. on Saturday, you can take away those oh-so-loquacious books for a mere three bucks a bag—and never have to suffer a quiet evening at home again.

Anne DeGrace is the Adult Services Coordinator at the Nelson Municipal Library. Visit or call 250-352-6333.

Christmas Pantomime Auditions Sunday, Sept. 12 at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St.

The Capitol Theatre presents its 23rd Annual Christmas Pantomime this

year staging “Show-down at the Hoe-down,” a wild west pantomime by Ed Lee. The Capitol Panto is a mainstay of local theatre featuring members of the community in often ridiculous and hilarious roles. This year’s panto takes place Thursday through Sunday, Dec 2-5. The Capitol welcomes one and all to be part of this annual event. Ages 13 and under are invited to audition with a parent from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and ages 13 and over from 2-4 p.m. at the Capitol. The Capitol Panto Auditions customarily attract over 100 performers for around 50 parts so the odds are great you will be onstage at the theatre. Last years performances of The Emperors New Clothes brought in over 1,200 audience members and propelled local musician and entertainer Craig Korth to stardom as a cross dressing fashionista. The Capitol Panto is a fundraising event for the Capitol Theatre Restoration Society and is an integral part of the continued operation of the Capitol Theatre.

Scopes by Stenya Sept. 8 - 14 Aries

Self-discipline is required of you right now. You need to keep your emotions under control and focus on your selfsufficiency.


This may be because you are moving, changes in the home with marriage or children, or school.


You may have been feeling emotional satisfied lately. You are in tuned with your needs and able to clearly communicate them with the people in your life. This is a good time to stay balanced and focus on anything that needs a little more re-aligning in your life. You may be surprised at the unexpected benefits!


You may have been procrastinating lately. This is a time for decisive action. Use your reasoning and resilience to make something happen or bring something to a conclusion in your life.


You may be experiencing a new found love with a person in your life. You may have been together with this person for a while now or there may be a new person in your life.


You may be feeling a wonderful sense of accomplishment this week. There may have been a difficult obstacle that you had to overcome at work or in the family.

Easy Sudoku


This is not the time to wait and see if things will happen the way you want them to. Waiting is not beneficial for you at this time. The outcome will be determined by your subtle, purposeful actions. It is important to be able to clearly communicate and initiate action right now.



This is a good time to avoid confrontation. You may be tempted to get upset over small things this week. Arguing and reacting with emotion will not help the situation. Choose not to get upset over the small stuff.


If things are not working out for you right now in regards to your job or close relationships, remain positive. You may even received some shocking news. Remain dignified.


You may be asked to take on some extra responsibility this week. You can be more than willing to because your values are aligned with the goals of the project. You will be able to take on this new duty with a sense of loyalty.
