Five grizzly bears relocated from Nelson SHARMAINE GRAY In the early morning on Saturday, September 25, a grizzly mother and her two sub-adult cubs were safely removed from the City of Nelson and relocated to the deep back country. The grizzly mother and cubs were trapped at the end of Creek Street just below the cemetery. At 6:30 a.m. the last tranquilized bear was loaded for transport. Officers from the Nelson Police Department assisted the Conservation Office with the removal of the grizzlies. The mother bear was captured in a culvert-style trap while the two cubs were caught in snares. They were uninjured. Sergeant Pat Severyn remarked on the rarity of capturing three grizzlies at once. The cubs were estimated to weigh 200 pounds each while the mother weighed over 300 pounds. The grizzly family was first seen in Nelson in early September. Originally there were three cubs but one was caught earlier this month at the cemetery and relocated. That cub returned to Nelson last week in an apparent effort to rejoin his family. Unusually, he has been relocated again, this time to the U.S. A lone grizzly boar was also trapped at the Granite Pointe Golf Club and relocated earlier this month. The two remaining cubs and their mother have been relocated as a ���������� family unit in an effort to discourage their return to the city. It is the policy of the Conservation Office to relocate grizzlies when possible. All five translocated grizzlies have been tagged. If any should return to Nelson proper, they will have to be put down. Sergeant Severyn noted

This burger is sweet!

10 green gummi-worms 1 oz raw sesame seeds pinch of sugar dash of natural vanilla 1 box lime jello mix 1 packet of cherry kool-aid mix 1 lemon This recipe makes one large burger cake or 10 sliders. I use boxed cake mix because it’s spongier and easier to work with than scratch but by all means, make your own. Bake the yellow cake mix at 350F for 12 min or till lightly golden. Pour the chocolate cake batter onto a greased and floured cookie sheet. Bake at 350F till firm. Cool both. Slice bun cakes in half. Cut rounds from chocolate cake with rings, bowls or coffee cups the same diameter as your bun cakes. Place

patties on buns. Combine 1/3 icing sugar, lemon juice and yellow food colour to texture of mustard. For ketchup, mix 1/3 sugar, a splash of water and dry cherry kool-aid mix and water to taste and texture of ketchup. Serve in picnic squeeze bottles. Repeat for relish with dry jello,water, and diced green gummis. Serve in a jar. Brush bun tops with sugar and water and press into raw sesame seeds. Deliver to the table on a large platter. Then put on some great kid’s party music and watch them go wild. The looks on their faces are priceless. The burgers look so real, one of the kids said he couldn’t have one because he was a vegetarian. Perfect.

Fun food fact: Cupcakes originated in Britain and were first called fairy cakes.

Sept. 29, 2010

Long live the library, support its existence Dear Editor, This October, the RDCK will hold referendums in electoral areas E,F, and south H asking ratepayers whether or not they will support free universal access to the Nelson Municipal Library through an increase in property taxes. The Regional District has asked this question before with similar referendums. The last time, district residents voted against a property tax increase, leaving our library underfunded and forced to impose user fees for library membership to anyone living outside the city of Nelson. That was a mistake. Let’s not repeat it. It may seem easy and correct to reject any and all proposed tax increases by local governments. It isn’t, or at least, it shouldn’t be. Not all public institutions are the same and the question of whether or not they should be fully funded

with our tax dollars is not a neutral one. A free public library is the cradle of our democracy. It is a place where all the citizenry have access to all information; where neither social standing, nor political leaning, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration. The novelist Doris Lessing called the public library “the most democratic of institutions because no one - but no one at all - can tell you what to read and when and how.” The public library is not some antiquated depository of books to be taken for granted until it is left behind by an electronic age. It is the place where our sentences and words live. A place where parents teach their children the love of reading, just as their parents taught them. A place to be cherished and taken care of. If some people do not wish to use the public library, that is their choice.

But all of us have an obligation, as part of a democratic open society, to ensure that those who do use the public library can do so for free. In a time when so many work so hard to reduce every human relationship to that of a buyer and a seller, the public library is unique; libraries lend. Members borrow and return. The public library is not Google. There is no financial gain, no profit to be had. The American poet Archibald MacLeish said, “What is more important in a library than anything else - than everything else - is the fact that it exists.” If you live in the RDCK districts participating in the referendums, please take the time to vote and vote to support free access to the Nelson Municipal Library for everyone. It’s the right thing to do. Greg Maslak Electoral Area F

the Question:

Where would you like to travel for a month, and why?

Immigration has made Canada the wonderful melting pot of diversity that it is today.

Fiona Wheeler, Nelson

KENTUCKY. I’m a thoroughbred fan. AFRICA! Tanzania to be exact; to climb Kilimanjaro and to help those less fortunate than me who I run into along the way. BALI. Beauty, sacredness, prayerfullness. NEW Zealand because I have always wanted to go there.

My parents came here looking for a place to get away from the war, and a place where they could be free and make some progress. They built a community they were proud of.

Herb Couch, Nelson

It’s a good thing to encourage cultural diversity. First world immigration is important because it brings people to a more standardized health care and education system.

Patrick Burley, Nelson

I would follow the Mediterranean coastline from the Straits of Gibraltar in Spain, and continue along to France, Italy, “Yugoslavia”, Greece, and along all the Middle Eastern countries that border the sea. ONE month? Not long enough, but when, then to China. A whirlwind tour of this vast and profound country, to soak in its culture and many historic sights. I would need a Chinese guide! I would definitely rent a house in Italy. There is so much beautiful architecture, countryside and history. The people are kind and passionate about life... and the food.... delightful! How soon can I leave?

I would just stay home. Traveling is not my ‘thing’ and I like it here. I would like to do a land and sea trip retracing the paths of my ancestors from their origins in the Western Ukraine and Scotland. It would be a great way to combine adventure travel with personal history, and possibly provide a chance to learn some of the traditions that have been lost as immigrants adapt to new landscapes and cultures. FRANCE, because I love the country and culture, and for a whole month I would just immerse myself and my husband in the romance of it all. NEW Zealand in the summer to snowboard. NEW York City! It looks like a fascinating and historical city to explore! GOA, for the rave scene. I’D go to a very health-focused spa (organic/yoga/meditation etc.) located in a tropical, secluded area by a very swim-able beach. I would love this right now because I am tired.

SOUTH of France and enrol in a cooking school. Eating well is very important to any trip. HAWAII... Because I am Hawaiian (kanaka Maoli) and I wish to be at home with my people especially when the winter cold sets in. I would go to Inuit territory, Canada’s far north. I’ve been as far north as Yellowknife and it was like a different country. In one town I visited in the NWT, I was the only white person. It was an eye-opener, for sure. The beauty of the land and sky in the north was staggering. I would travel by boat along the Central and South America West. I would seek to meet and learn about arts and culture from diverse peoples in each region. ICELAND. Beautiful country, beautiful people, Powerful forces of nature.

Publisher’s Note: Nelson Becker

Let peace-loving immigrants in Canada is a country of immigrants. Immigrants add to Canada’s wealth. Many people have come to Canada because of violence in their home countries. They have come here because in their home country they could not afford a healthy standard of life. It is not easy to leave your home county, your family and your friends. People who do so have incredible pressures on them and the people who are successful have extraordinary strength. Yet, despite the fact that these people have great courage, we treat immigrants in a paternalistic way at best. We say, “There, there, we will take care of you”, when the human resource is immense. The skills and educational opportunities immigrants have to offer will help build Canada’s future. We should not

care if people are leftwing or right-wing. We should care that people are committed to working together toward common benefits. It really doesn’t matter why people come to Canada; what does matter is their intent. It is right to be restrictive towards people who are committed to violence to achieve their ends. We could find ways to welcome the peace-loving people of the world, the ones who understand that being non-violent is the only way to be. But we don’t ask that question. We ask people if they have a job or what they will do; we ask them about their skills; we ask them how much money they have. It would be better to have people come here because they want to come here, rather than because they are escaping from a bad situation.

Fish Heads and Flowers Fish heads to whoever is posting hate mail regarding someone in our Village. If you have nothing better to do then perhaps you should get a day job as well as a life. - Fired up and fed up Flowers to those police who choose not to abuse their authority. - Pushing for change Fish heads to people who peer directly into the windows of houses with ‘for sale’ signs on them, and then knock on the door when we are clearly closing our blinds for privacy. How about respecting those who live in that home, and just call the realtor? - Creeped out family Flowers to the lovely lady in the garden. I pass you every morning and your serenity in the face of changing seasons and

irresponsible gardeners (“Get that girl a cardigan!”) sets me right for the day. - Appreciative walker to work Fish heads to you who stole my birthday package from my mail. My mom spent time finding that gift and it was sent with love - not for you. Shame. - Sad Sunday Flowers to the man who, a couple of months ago, paid the $5 towards my groceries when I didn’t have enough money. You remind me that there are still good people in this world. Much Appreciated Fish heads to the guy who, with his nifty leaf blower, kept blowing the leaves and dust-dirt little devils up to the air as I walked by. What part of me did you not see? - True grit

You’re invited to a birthday party! Open House

Friday, Oct. 1, 6:30 p.m. at the Nelson Library, 602 Silica St.

The Nelson Library is asking everyone to come out and celebrate this week. The Library is turning 90 and has been undergoing a facelift for the past few months. The progress to date will be unveiled to the community at an open house on Friday, Oct. 1. “There is plenty to celebrate,” says Chief Librarian June Stockdale. “Our expansion is really generating excitement. The library is brighter, with much more room for our growing collection and enhanced programming.” Membership numbers have grown by 34 per cent in the past two years, and the Library may soon be reaching out to even more patrons. A series of referenda are being held on October 16. If passed, residents from Balfour to Winlaw will support library service through taxation and become part of this expanded community facility. A yes vote will also mean satellite services for Kootenay Lake and the Slocan Valley, outreach services for youth, improved hours and expanded collection materials for all patrons. “Newcomers to Areas E, F and H are often dismayed to find they are not automatically members of a public library system,” says Area F resident Frances Welwood. “On Oct. 16 these more recent Nelson area residents will have the

opportunity to speak for themselves and to signon to an excellent, existing library system.” According to Stats Canada, the definition of what it means to be literate is changing. Numeracy, problemsolving skills and being able to learn new technologies are as important as reading in today’s world. By providing free access to books, audio books, CDs, DVDs, the internet and many forms of technology, libraries open doors to these new literacy skills. “Libraries are about so much more than lending books. They are about sharing information, enjoyment, education and knowledge,” says Chief Librarian June Stockdale. “They help build a literate community and a legacy for future generations.” This role becomes even more important in times of economic downturn. “Everyone, especially those with limited income, should have access to good quality library services,” says Area H resident Val Mayes. “Supporting the library through taxation is the most equitable way to do this. It will mean that membership fees won’t be a barrier, and that the library can improve its service with longer hours and outreach to the Slocan Valley. This will be good for everyone, including seniors and young families.” Community organiza-


Anne DeGrace invites the public to the Nelson Library’s 90th birthday celebration on Friday, Oct. 1.

tions may request someone to attend a meeting to answer questions about the referenda by calling the Regional District at 250-352-6665 or the Library at 250-

352-6333. Come out and celebrate the Nelson Library on Friday, Oct. 1. Help kick off the next 90 years of this great facility at the core of our commu-

nity. Community members who would like more information on the October 16th referenda are welcome to stop in at the Nelson Library to

pick up information and ask questions, or visit the Library website at www. - Submitted by the Nelson Library

Shambhala, SpiritBar host ‘Support your Skatepark’ fundraiser Shamhala/Hume Skatepark Fundraiser Friday, Oct. 1 at SpiritBar, 422 Vernon St.

STEPHANIE TAYLOR The organizers of Shambhala have a long track record of supporting the idea of building a skatepark in Nelson, and they are putting their money, and their talent, where their mouth is. On Friday, Oct. 1, SpiritBar will be transformed into a Shambhala-type experience, featuring performances by

the festival’s stage directors, who are all musicians in their own right, explains Corrine Zawaduk, Production Manager for Shambhala. “We’ve been trying to champion a skate park in Nelson for a long time, and have been donating funds to help them do so,” she says. This year, they are giving $10,000 of the festival’s proceeds to the Skatepark Society. (Another $10,000 is going to Haiti relief funds.) “The people that put Shambhala together work so hard all year to get everything ready and the make sure that the festival


goes well, and we wanted to thank those people,” she said. “What better way than to throw a party and raise money for a good cause at the same time?” Ryan Martin also feels that the skatepark is an important project that the community should get behind. “We should be proud of what we accomplished as a community with raising all the necessary funds for the CT Scanner,” he says. “We now need to get behind the Nelson skatepark as a priority. “It’s time to solidify the location and gain some momentum to see this project

come to fruition.” 100 per cent of the proceeds of the night will be donated to the Skatepark Society, and some of the funds raised will be used for developing preliminary designs for the park. “A lot of people who were involved with Shambhala in the early years were skaters; we had a skae ramp where the rock pit used to be, for years,” Zawaduk adds. “I’ve seen skate parks in other cities that have totally transformed an otherwise useless area of land into a place where families can spend time. A town like Nelson deserves to have one.”

FLIKS Presents Winnebago Man Wednesday, Oct. 6, 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St.

Twenty years after shooting an ad for Winnebago, the out-takes surfaced on YouTube, and the grumpy, frustrated, foul mouthed salesman became one of the earliest viral video celebrities. Jack Rebney’s notorious, profanity-laden meltdown was passed around on VHS in the 1990s, but when it was uploaded to YouTube in 2005 as “The Angriest Man in the World,” it was seen by over 20 million people. Winnebago Man director Ben Steinbauer, who was mesmerized by this explosive rant tries to connect with the reclusive Rebney – and to connect Rebney with his fans. It’s a laughout-loud look at viral culture and an unexpectedly poignant tale of one man’s response to unintended celebrity. The film runs 94 minutes and is rated 14A for lots of swears.

Friday and Saturday, Oct. 1-2, 8 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St.

Lucas Myers returns to the Capitol with a new play that examines the fine line between perfectionism and obsession; chaos and freedom, and why a piece of 2x6 lumber isn’t really two inches by six inches. Not even close. DECK stars Cliv, a meticulous single parent of two who has been forced to reassess his future after taking major losses in the recent recession. He embraces a new start as a small town, eco-conscious, back-to-the-lander. His attempts at self-sufficiency are hijacked by a bad house buy and he is forced to try his hand at home improvement. Enter Andreas, the charismatic carpenter who takes Cliv under his wing and offers to lend a hand. As Cliv is drawn into Andreas’ world of free wheeling free -living, Cliv begins to lose his grasp on reality and is consumed by suspicions of Andreas’ true motives. DECK is a darkly hilarious take on the modern milieu of a small-town, semi-urban environment. Please note: This performance is not suitable for children. WARNING: power tools, physics, partial nudity.

Sean Burns Thursday, Oct. 7 at the Royal, 330 Baker St.

Gaudi - Live in Nelson Saturday, Oct. 2, 10 p.m. at Spiritbar, 422 Vernon St.

Live and direct from London, UK, the renowned producer Gaudi returns to the Kootenays after rocking the Living Room at Shambhala 2010 with his unique blend of dub and breaks. Expect a world class night of infectious dancefloor grooves, explicit bass and a live performance unlike anything you’ve ever seen. On his previous albums, Gaudi has worked to create his own unique synthesis, using elements of dub, electronica and world music producing tracks that have been mostly down-tempo in nature. His new album No Prisoners is a very different and definitely up-tempo creation. Stylistically its primary energy comes from breakbeat influences underpinned with fat basslines and subtle live world instrumentation such as Oud and tribal percussion. Tickets available the Hume Hotel and Eddy Music.

Breaking fast: an important a.m. ritual

After a night’s rest, the digestive system is at it’s peak. Breaking the fast, otherwise known as breakfast, should not only raise blood sugar levels to provide energy for the day, but also provide up to one third of your daily nutrient requirements. It is an accepted fact that breakfast-eaters have better concentration than those who gulp a cup of coffee and call it breakfast. They are less prone to accidents, headaches and irritability; all of which are reactions to hunger. Those who start their day with a wholesome meal won’t feel the need

natural nutrition Jenn Keirstead to reach for an unhealthy/ sugary snack to keep up their energy. They are also less likely to overeat later in the day. They won’t have to compensate for the empty feeling that occurs when breakfast is overlooked. For those with no time in the mornings, smoothies will give all of the required nutrients when fats and

proteins are added. Prepare cooked dishes the night before so they are ready after a quick reheat in the morning. Don’t feel restricted by what as become accepted as breakfast fare. The specific foods you eat are not as important as their nutritional value. If you prefer savory foods, why not try a bowl of last night’s chili or for the sweeter tooth, brown rice with sliced apple and cinnamon. Change your approach to breakfast by eating cooked, whole grains instead of packaged and processed cereals.

Jennifer Keirstead is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and is a member of the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants, and provides customized nutritional counseling. For a consultation call 250-509-1417.

Sept. 29 - Oct 5 Aries

Timing can be the deciding factor for you right now. What you want to happen right away may not be available to you. This can be for reasons out of your control. The great thing about this is if you are open to alternatives, amazing things can happen.

Easy Sudoku


You usually have an easy time sticking to your decisions once you have made up your mind. This week you may have made a difficult decision that you are having troubles committing to whole-heartedly.


Your knowledge may have been expanding recently. Learning new skills or life lessons can open doors to new opportunities that can be life changing events. Avoid deviating from the facts and tried and true from what you know. This integrity can help you through the challenging moments.


This week be extra aware of friends and work colleagues as someone may not have good intentions. Sometimes others out of their own selfishness will create tension that could negatively affect you. Face conflicts right away in your gentle diplomatic way and you will come out the hero.

Hard Sudoku


Resist the tendency to put the blame on others. You at the helm of your own life. You are responsible for the choices you make. It can be hard, but you can choose how you react to situations in your life.


You may be pleasantly surprised this week. It could be a minor or major event that can bring increased joy and happiness into your life. Your careful calculations and paying attention to the details can be paying off now.



Your hard work and effort have been worthy feats that can now be shared and appreciated with others. This is a time to let your ���������� heart shine and cultivate the important close relationships in your life. What brings you joy brings joy to others as well.


It is important to include others in your plans this week. Not only will you be able to get things done faster and easier, you can build strong bonds of friendship that may have not been possible before. Trust is built upon shared experiences. It is worth the effort.

Puzzle answers on page 15 ������������������������������������������������������������������ �������������������������������������



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


You can have success this week in group undertakings. Team effort can bring great results as creative ideas will be abundantly flowing. Dream big, the big is possible for you now if you can stay balanced within yourself.



You may be asked to rise to the challenge this week. Use creative solutions that work for you. Avoid stressing yourself out by keeping a healthy balance between work, rest, and play. Put yourself out there and know that mistakes are proof that your are trying.


A test of endurance in the form of hard work can test your commitment this week. If you can rise up to meet the challenge head first you can not only accomplish great things but help others around you as well.


Follow through on your commitments, no matter how small they seem to you.

Years before the 100 Mile Diet, back when the word locavore hadn’t yet been coined, and in the days when ‘green’ was just the colour of your organic spinach, Evergreen Natural Foods had been championing these values by offering produce from B.C. farmers and hundreds of products from local suppliers and it is with that spirit that Evergreen will be hosting a huge anniversary celebration on October 2, 2010 featuring many of the local businesses who create some of your favourite natural products.

Thanks Kit and Dave for 20 years of providing the community with wholesome, healthy food and friendly, helpful staff!
