Local teen puts forth challenge

14 year-old Ana Seed challenges Nelson residents to 28-hour fast to support the Nelson Food Cupboard SHARMAINE GRAY

Ana Seed, a fourteen-year-old student at Nelson’s Self-Design High, is challenging local residents to take part in a 28hour sponsored fast called Fast For Food. The aim of the project is to support the Nelson Food Cupboard and raise awareness of the impact of hunger in our own community. The fast starts on Friday, November 5 at noon and ends at 4:00 in the afternoon the next day. Anyone wishing to take part is asked to pick up pledge forms at one of three locations: The Nelson Food Cupboard, SelfDesign High or the Youth Employment Resource Centre. Participants are invited to add up to eighteen sponsors per form. Sponsors are invited to take part in the fast as well. The inspiration for the event came from another local teen who had invited a small group of friends to go on a sponsored fast to raise money to alleviate hunger in Africa. The success of that project inspired Seed to implement the same format to inspire Nelsonites to respond to the issue of hunger in our own community. Seed took Nelson as her focus because she found that, “It’s great that people ���������� help others in different parts of the world, but it is important to remember that there are a lot of people in our own community that face food barriers.’ The Nelson Food Cupboard ���������� serves over 1000 people every month. That translates to one out of every 10 Nelsonites. One quarter of

These may be made directly to the Food Cupboard or online at http://www. foodcupboard.org/index. php/foodcupboard/ donate/. Cash donations must be made in person at the Food Cupboard. Hours of operation are Wednesdays 9:00 – 12:00,

Thursdays 12:00 – 2:00 or by appointment. Self-Design High is located in the Royal Canadian Legion building at 402 Victoria St. The Youth Employment Resource Centre is on the second floor of the Nelson & District Youth Centre located at 608 Lake St. Seed plans to make the sponsored fast an annual event even though organizing the first one has proven ‘a bit overwhelming.’ It will no doubt also be rewarding.

South Slocan water system completed

Boil water notice for South Slocan has been lifted as of Oct. 6 The Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Province of British Columbia are pleased to announce that the final commissioning of the South Slocan Water Treatment Plant is now complete. Effective immediately, the boil water notice for the South Slocan Water System has been removed. The success of this project can be attributed to the collaborative approach taken with committed stakeholders and the cooperation of the community. This “green” facility was designed using a “triple bottom line” analysis and therefore meets the financial, environmental and social goals of the community. The focus was to build sustainable infrastructure, reduce the carbon footprint, conserve energy and ensure longterm financial viability. “The South Slocan Water System is one of a number of projects that the RDCK has undertaken to improve water quality in our region” stated Gary Wright, RDCK Board Chair. Regional District Director Walter Popoff

(Electoral Area H) would like to thank the Provincial and Federal Governments for their support in this project, noting that otherwise the financial burden to the community would have been cost prohibitive. “This project demonstrates that financial, environmental and social objectives can be achieved by working together.” Stated Director Popoff. Grant contributions from the BC Community Water Improvement Program and Community Works Funds were used to help finance this project. As well, financial resources were returned directly back into the local economy through the use of local contractors, materials, and other community services. Infrastructure upgrades to the South Slocan Water System have brought the system into compliance with Interior Health Authority (IHA) 4-3-2-10 objectives for providing safe drinking water.

Elders sharing history through storytelling The theme of many applications for New Horizons For Seniors funding this year was the recording of oral histories by seniors. Seniors centres of aboriginal and mainstream cultures both see the significance of capturing the histories of seniors in their locations. It’s a theme that this column has promoted on more than one occasion. I’ve written about Our Canada and The Senior, publications that depend on seniors contributing their own stories in print.

2nd Annual Green Building Tour Tours of Green Buildings and Homes Sunday, Oct. 17, 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. at various locations

On Sunday, Oct. 17, the public and the building industry will have the opportunity to learn why green buildings are the future. Following on the great success of last year’s tour, the local branch of the Cascadia Green Building Council is proud to offer Nelson’s 2nd Annual Green Building Tour. This event is supported through funding from the Kootenay Association for Science and Technology and the Industrial Research Assistance Program of Natural Resources Canada. “Green is the future of building,” says Robin Urquhart, Coordinator for the Kootenay/Rockies Leaf and Manager at The Building Tree. In addition, to their environmental benefits, Urquhart points out that, “buildings employing green principles are often cost saving and offer a higher return on investment, not to mention they’re healthier places in which to live.” ���������� Buildings in Canada currently consume 12 per

cent of potable water and 33 per cent of energy produced, and they generate over a quarter of all landfill waste and over a third of all greenhouse gas emissions. Cascadia’s annual tour of green buildings will open the doors to the inner workings of Nelson’s high performance green homes and buildings. The public will learn about the costs and benefits of building and retrofitting green on both a small and large scale. They will also learn how innovative features and systems work and how they can be easily incorporated into homes and businesses. Funding provided through the Kootenay Association for Science and Technology has made this

event possible. In addition to offering sustainable building ideas to the community, the tour will also be an opportunity to highlight local businesses that are doing their part to develop and promote the green building industry in the Kootenays. Participants can register by calling 250 352-7933, emailing robin@cascadiagbc.org or visiting The Building Tree at 621 Herridge Lane. Proceeds from the tour will support green building events held by the Kootenay/Rockies Leaf of the Cascadia Region Green Building Council. - Submitted by the Building Tree

Hazelnuts: the the roast of the town this season I recently discovered the presence of fresh hazelnuts growing in my neighbourhood. They come to their peak in October. As I experimented with them, I began to realize how much they can really enhance a dish. They are true team players. I served them with cheese, herbs and oil before a meal. It’s a deconstructed pesto with your own unique spin on it. Choose any strong, dry salty cheese and a creamy goat log or whatever cheese you favour. Then spread several Mediterranean herbs on a wooden cutting board with fragrant olive oils and roasted hazelnuts. Lay the cheeses with some lemon zest and roasted garlic and it’s a make -your-own pesto starter. Serve with crusty bread. Here’s a comforting dish that looks like a slice of des-

Proposed library service opens doors

Are you looking for music for your next party? An audiobook for your next roadtrip? Does your car need a tune up? Maybe it’s time for a trip to the Library. With the upcoming referenda on library services, it’s time to take a new look at what libraries do these days. The list includes lending books in all their various forms: hard cover and paperback, large print, audio books on CD, tape and MP3, and even ebooks with digital readers. It includes lending music CDs and movies on DVD. It also includes access to multiple online services such as periodicals, data bases and reference centres for repairing small engines and cars. Rural residents from Balfour to Winlaw will vote on October 16 about whether they would like access to these services as well. Those areas that vote yes will begin to pay for library service through their property taxes, a practice which is almost universal in BC. “Lots of rural residents are coming in and asking questions of staff,” says Chief Librarian June Stockdale. “We are really glad people are taking the time to get informed on the issues.” Stockdale points out that it is common practice around the province for residents to pay for library services through taxation. In fact, 98.6% of British Columbians access library services this way. There are only 49,000 people in BC who cannot freely access a library, and 11,800 of them are residents of RDCK Areas E, F and H. “In most communities around the province, libraries are funded in the same way as hospitals and schools. Everyone pays a little bit, and the whole community benefits from the increased opportunities ���������� that come from free access to the tools that build literacy,” says Stockdale. Currently, rural residents pay out of pocket for a library membership. This is not working for either rural residents or the library. In a community consultation process earlier this year, residents said they would like to see library services in their communities. Satellite services, outreach programs and book return boxes in rural areas are all part of the proposed service. Improved hours and expanded collection materials, and a seat on the

information on the project will be displayed, as well ideas, drawings, and diagrams prepared by local stakeholders representing a wide range of ������������������ constituencies.

������������������������������ Thursday, October 14th, 5pm-9pm at The Prestige Lakeside Resort & Convention Center, Monashee Room ������������������������

Opinion:

Board of Trustees are also part of the package. Under the user-pay system rural residents account for the use of 30% of library materials in circulation. But they only contribute 2% of library income. If rural areas vote “no”, membership costs will increase to $120 per household, to better reflect the actual cost of providing library service to this large segment of library users. The library does not see a userpay system as a long-term viable option for providing service to rural areas. Many people cannot afford to pay for individual library service. “What’s most worrisome to me, under a user-pay system, is that those people who might benefit most from library access will struggle to pay for it,” says Stockdale. “Access to libraries provides huge opportunities, especially to youth. It’s an inequitable system where some students sitting side by side in the same classrooms have more advantages than others.” “Libraries are key to any Regional District that wants to see itself as vital and as a contributing part of a community,” says music director and Area E resident Kathleen Neudorf. “Continued, reliable financial support is essential in order for the Nelson library to fulfill its mandate as a public cultural resource. The Nelson Library must be able to provide universal access while expanding and improving its services throughout the area.” The proposed cost is an increase of $10.00 per $100,000 of assessed property value. For the owner of an average $360,000 home, this would mean an increase of $36 per year, or $3.00 per month. The Library has committed to RDCK that there will be no increases in the first two years. Information about the proposed new services, who is eligible to vote, as well as when and where to vote is available at http:// rdck/b c .c a/publicinfo/ news.html or www.nelsonlibrary.ca. Residents are also welcome to stop in at the Library and ask questions. Community organizations who would like a representative to attend one of their meetings to answer questions about the referenda can call the Regional District at 250352-6665 or the Library at 250-352-6333. - Submitted by the Nelson Library ����������������������� ��������������������������������

$10.30 buys area kids access to a wealth of imagination

SUBMITTED

Moose, a pure-bred Boston Terrier was stolen from outside Touchstones on Sept. 14. His family misses him dearly.

“Why is our electoral area doing a library referendum on the 16th of October? Can’t we just pay a user fee for the Nelson Municipal Library?” Sound questions. I thought about this for all the years I lived at Willow Point. We were big users, with my husband who was arguably the most frequent customer, and my kids who were book hounds. Yet we paid hardly anything to be borrowers; even what the electoral user families pay now (3 per cent of the budget) doesn’t cover the cost of their estimated 30 per cent use of the library. It was during four years in Winnipeg that I learned to love reading. At the age of eight, I found the bookmobile that parked on Fridays at the end of our street.

planning of a modern library growing out of the old system. It was a revolution to market reading and resources. It is now a community learning centre, fully online with things we can’t normally access on the internet, and it has over 700 people visiting daily, grazing, researching, and loving our language and literature, including lots of rural kids who come in after school. It will cost the residents of the electoral areas $10.30 per $100,000 of property assessment to be part of the service, whereas a membership will cost $120 annually if the referendum doesn’t fly. I encourage the rural neighbourhoods to say ‘yes’ on October 16th to the opportunity for enhanced library services.

MLA’s Annual Report and ‘Coffee Talk’ Tuesday, Oct. 19, 6:30 p.m. at Oso Negro Cafe, 604 Ward St.

MLA Michelle Mungall’s first annual report to constituents hit community mailboxes last week. The pamphlet is the first of two, and features photos and highlights from Mungall’s work over the last year. Part two is something a little different as far as communication tools go. ‘A Year in Review’ is a four minute video of Mungall in action. “After years of working for non-profits it’s become habit to prepare an annual report,” said Mungall, “I thought it would be really poignant to visually show people what I do as their

MLA.” The video can be viewed on Mungall’s website or on Youtube and is available on DVD by contacting her office, at 1-877-388-4498.

Street Talk: Whiich non-profit organizations do you support?

I’ve supported Amnesty International in particular, and definitely believe in and promote non-profit organizations, whether they are local, national or international. Its vital that we are engaged in non-government organizations.

Daniel Metzger, Nelson

opinion&editorial

Oct. 13, 2010

Why not support library services? Dear Editor; I’ve read several pieces about the upcoming library vote in the local news recently. I live in Nelson, so haven’t joined the debate so far. But when I heard about the misinformation in the “no” flyer that’s hitting rural mailboxes this week, I had to speak out. I understand that there is a group of three former regional directors, led by Al Dawson, who would like these referendums to fail. They argue against access to library services for rural residents. I find this very hard to understand. When I had small children, the library was a great place to stop in the afternoon to take a breather after a busy day downtown. It was often a lifesaver for us; when everybody was tired and worn out we’d head over to the kids’ section and read for a while. After we’d recharged we would check out a few books to take home with us. Not only did a stop at the library calm tempers, but it has helped us to raise two avid readers. I see

parents and grandparents doing the same thing at the library whenever I’m there, which is often, unlike Mr. Dawson who admits that he doesn’t use the library for anything but “meetings”. The library helps us all raise children who love to read, as well as serving people who are studying, checking out large-print books for seniors, working on assignments, or looking for work on-line. I understand that almost one third of library circulation comes from users outside of Nelson. And those are the ones who can afford a library card! It’s sad to think how few will be able to use the library if the user fees go up to $120 a year the actual cost of providing regional services. I’m proud that the people in my community who need the library are able to access it without having to pay a user fee. This should also be possible for my rural neighbours. And I’m excited by the list of expanded services the library plans to provide to

rural residents if the “yes” vote wins. As for Mr. Dawson, he says he’s “not picking on the library but has wider concerns about tax levels in the Regional District”. If that’s the case, perhaps he should devote his time, energy and funds to a discussion about general tax levels in the Regional District, instead of arguing against much needed library services for rural residents. Maybe the funds he used to run his negative campaign could be put to better use as a donation to the library. Our Regional District is part of the last 1.4 per cent of the province that doesn’t yet fund regional library services. Area residents, please come out on Saturday, October 16, vote yes, and help the Central Kootenay join the rest of the 98.6 per cent of the province that supports a library for those who most need it. Trish Hill Nelson

New library taxes will increase cost of waterfront properties

I support non-profits by donating at the Co-op. I donate each time I shop there, and I try to give something to everybody.

Bernice Raabis, Nelson

I supported Keep the Beat, for War Child Canada. I believe what they are doing is good for the world. I also volunteered for them last year.

Keira Sand, Nelson

Dear Editor, As a senior living on a pension (with few increases) who is also fortunate enough to have waterfront property, paying taxes for 61 years, I cannot absorb the cost of a library tax. The quoted fee of $120 is less than many waterfront properties will be charged, so user fees are the only way to go. This will allow many to stay in their homes and also relieve the stress of increased taxes on their limited funds. Or, better yet, it is time for those living on pensions be exempt from Regional District taxes, as they have paid their fair share and given the present generation a beautiful part of BC to live in. Remember, one day too, you will be living on limited pensions. To constantly pay tax increases has exceeded the ability for many to absorb this cost. It has come to my attention that our taxes are higher here than in North Vancouver and Area E has very little to

show for the taxes collected. Shall it be advertised that only millionaires should plan on moving into this region and have their assets taken up by taxation? Enough is enough. There is no indication that the rate will be fixed or constantly increased. It was indicated that the rate of .1030 per 1000 will be increased to .2 if this library issue is passed. Waterfront property will be taxed almost double what taxpayers are led to believe. My own would go from $123.60 to $240 if this rumour is true. User fees are the only way to go. No empire building by the library or Regional District. To ask taxpayers from rural areas to pay for new library parking in Nelson is not the responsibility of rural taxpayers, it is the responsibility of Nelson. M. Chapman Nelson

Save Red Sands, ensure privacy Dear Editor: The Save Red Sands Beach group formed to protect the last natural beach within Nelson city limits. The city currently has a rezoning application from the developer to usurp park land and forest in order to build exclusive, beach front homes and a parking lot on what has been zoned

for parkland since the ‘80’s. Both of these would ruin the privacy of a nudist beach which local residents have been using for generations. Many Nelsonites would feel a tragic loss if this gets pushed through without proper public input, fully considered and followed by the city staff and council. Many locals had worked

hard in the past, volunteering their time on an OCP with a Waterfront Plan which was never ratified by the city. Their efforts have been ignored in the past, as in the case of the Kootenai Landing proposed waterfront condos. Real estate is not community! Josh Wapp Nelson

the Question: Primarily I support KidSport, a BC-wide organization that helps fund kids who cannot afford to play sports. It is so great for kids to be able to pursue a dream.

Daija Currie, Nelson

Publisher’s Note: Nelson Becker

Help those who help others In Canada they are called non-profit organizations. In Asia they are called non-governmental organizations or NGOs. In both cases, they are groups of people taking responsibility for their community, either in their backyard or across the globe. When we face problems in our society, we all too often ask the government to solve them with laws and regulations. Community organizations are a step beyond. They say, ‘let’s take responsibility for the world we live in.’ It really doesn’t matter which non-profit group you support. What they all have in common is a sense of helping others,

rather than only helping ones self. The non-profit community organizations and their growth over the years is an obvious reason to be idealistic and optimistic about our future. There are many ways to support our community organizations; certainly making donations of money or other resources is appropriate; volunteerism is needed. While all organizations could use more money, the value of volunteerism should not be underestimated. Many organizations would be happy if you could donate as little as two hours a month. Get in touch with an organization that meets your particular needs and passions!

Biblical drama

The Capitol Kids Series Season Launch

Sunday, Oct. 17, 2 p.m. at The Capitol Theatre, 421 Victoria St.

The long running Capitol Theatre Kids Series has introduced generations of youth to the best in professional live touring entertainment at the Capitol Theatre. This season continues in that tradition with the presentation of Major Conrad Flapps in The Story of Esther. The prime minister of the ancient empire of Shushania schemes to destroy his Jewish subjects. Can this hate-filled man be stopped? Who has the courage, strength, and wits to defeat such evil? Watch how the teenage heroine Esther becomes queen of Shushania in order to save her people from destruction. Jump on a hilarious roller-coaster of musical story-theatre as clown Stuart Nemtin creates all eight characters in a tour de force performance that enacts the biblical drama of the Book of Esther. Klezmer meets clown in this ancient tale of joy, passion, and intrigue. Blending song, masks, puppets and physical comedy, The Story of Esther will have you laughing, gasping and asking for more! This show has been carefully scripted for audiences four years and older Stuart Nemtin (Major Conrad Flapps) is a graduate in theatre from UBC and the professional teaching program of Simon Fraser University.

Briefly Mat the Alien

Saturday, Oct. 16 at Spiritbar, 422 Vernon St.

Mat the Alien grew up not too far from Manchester (UK) and moved to Canada in the mid 90s to follow his snowboarding addiction, which he came upon during a trip to Austria. He has been DJ-ing since 1988 and was inspired to play the drums by local bands such as The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. After being introduced to the DJ culture of acid house warehouse parties, he was hooked on blending beats on the turntables. Over the years Mat has solidified his reputation as quite possibly western Canada’s top DJ.

Women Who Care Book Launch Friday, Oct. 15, 7 p.m. at the Yoga Loft, 625 Front St., 3rd floor

Written by women from around Canada, these stories reveal caring for ourselves and others as an art, a calling and a balancing act. The authors remind us that caregiving can be both a joy and a burden, but never neutral. Come to hear some of the stories, read by one of the book’s editors and former West Kootenay resident, Lori Hanson.

Frank and the Elephants Thursday, Oct. 14 half-price preview; Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 14-16 and 2122, 8 p.m. at the TNT Playhouse, corner of Ward and Carbonate

The true and very funny story of the 1926 Cranbrook elephant stampede is featured in the final presentation of this year’s Nelson Arts and Heritage Festival. Starring young local actor Cloud Edwards, the production is a remount of the play which won writer Richard Rowberry the 2004 Canadian One Act Play Competition. While the story of the escape of six elephants from the Sells

Floto Circus and the subsequent media frenzy that accompanied the search is true – based on newspaper reports – Rowberry also added a fictional element in his hero Frank and his role in the 1926 federal election which was taking place at the same time. “This was a very important election,” he explains, “with a constitutional crisis, a corruption scandal, and a minority government. It’s really interesting and pretty funny how nothing ever changes in Canadian politics!” The production also includes the use of almost 100 photographs and authentic newspaper clippings to illustrate the story.

B.A Johnston with The Magnificent 7’s

dromats, laundry rooms, stag and does, church halls, legions, bars, bookstores, vegan cafés and a few dives across this country with bands like Immaculate Machine, Cuff the Duke and Mayor MCCA. His music is nerd rock at its highest point — dork lullabies and loser anthems. Five albums later he is still eating Mr. Noodles in his mom’s basement and hoping to soon escape.

Free Public Reading at Ideas Cafe Friday, Oct. 22, 7 p.m. at Oxygen Arts Centre, 3-320 Vernon St.

Vancouver author and teacher Paul Headrick will be reading from his acclaimed new collection of short fiction, The Doctrine of Affections, at Ideas Cafe at the Oxygen Art Centre. In the eleven stories that make up The Doctrine of Affections, Headrick takes us on a fascinating journey into the heart of music. From the perfectly honed decrescendo of a symphony’s string section to the down-home chord progressions at a late-night kitchen party, Headrick’s stories question the subtle differences between hearing and listening, and communicating and understanding.

Royal Canoe is a deadly band armed with falsettos, guitars, effects pedals, drums, basses, tambourines, shakers and a five-keyboard super-weapon. Royal Canoe play lyrically sharp pop songs that make people dance, sing along and weep. In 2008, completely unheralded, The Liptonians emerged from a basement in Winnipeg with an “earnest little pop-rock gem” (Uptown Magazine). Much to their surprise, the album picked up a Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Pop Recording, garnered rave reviews, charted on college radio across the country, became a regular on CBC Radio and paved the way for three cross-Canadian tours. The strength of their dynamic live show scored them opening slots for bands like Silver Starling (Last Gang Records) and Chicago indie rock legends, The Sea and Cake.

Exploring foundation for peace Emotional Intelligence Specialist David Cory

Wednesday, Oct. 13, 7 p.m. at Selkirk College Castlegar Campus

The Nelson Walking Club was established in May 2009 and now has 34 members. Members have explored hiking trails around Nelson and surrounding areas, such as Fry Creek and Nakusp.

Selkirk College’s Mir Centre for Peace Lecture Series invites you to explore the foundation for peace on the planet with Vancouver-based Emotional Intelligence Specialist David Cory. As a specialist in the Emotional Intelligence field for the past 12 years, David Cory will share stories and review humankind’s ability to evaluate, manage and control emotions which are related to forming the foundation for peace in our world. “Generally speaking, individuals with well developed emotional intelligence skills are better at perceiving, using, understanding and managing emotions,” explains Cory. “They are more effective communicators, better at relationships, better able to align their goals, values, and actions and are less likely to resort to violence as a way of solving interpersonal problems.” David Cory, M.A., is the founder of The Emotional Intelligence Training Company Inc. and specializes in applying the concept of Emotional Intelligence

to Leadership and Team Effectiveness with leaders in such corporations as Rogers, Telus, Philips and Allstate Insurance. He is a guest instructor at several post-secondary institutions, and is is a past president of the Vancouver chapter of the International Society for Performance Improvement. He also works with senior government leaders at the Canada School of Public Service in Ottawa, and has been a keynote speaker and delivered training in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and all over North America. He is considered to be an international expert on the integration of emotional intelligence and leadership development. Tickets are available at Selkirk College bookstores, Otter Books in Nelson, Castlegar & District Public Library and at the door. David will also be offering a two-day Emotional Intelligence workshop on October 14 and 15 in Castlegar.

Protect yourself and those around you with a flu shot With flu season approaching, public health nurses across Interior Health are gearing up for the launch of this year’s influenza (flu) vaccination campaign that will begin the last week of October. Last year, close to 150,000 seasonal flu shots were provided free of charge to those at risk of complications from the flu. “This year’s vaccine contains three different flu strains, and includes the pandemic strain that we saw last year,” says Dr. Rob Parker, Medical Health Officer with Interior Health. “The two most important ways to protect yourself this flu season are to wash your hands frequently, and get your flu shot – especially if you are over 65, or have a chronic health condition.” The flu is highly contagious and can cause severe complications for those with heart, lung, and other health problems. Even if you don’t become severely ill, getting the flu can mean several missed days of school, work, and other activities. Flu vaccinations are a proven, safe and effective way to reduce your chances of getting the flu and to lessen the severity of symptoms if you do get it. For the clinic nearest you watch for local announcements on dates

Sacred Feminine Treasures Saturday, Oct. 16, 1-4 p.m. at the Sistering Tree, Suite #7-373 Baker St.

Engage in the internal exercises of Qi Gong, designed to help in the conservation of your energy. This course series brings awareness to the area of the reproductive system, enhancing overall health and vitality. These dynamic and informative sessions, called Feminine Treasures, honour the innate processes of a woman’s body. The exercises focus on specific mental and physical movements that will energize the whole body towards tranquility, vitality and balance. These gentle, deliberate and conscious movements will support the body’s natural inclinations to energize, heal, and regenerate itself. Marisa Vachon has practiced yoga since the age of 12. Through

and times in your community or contact your local Public Health office (check the blue pages in your phone book under Health Authorities) or visit our website at www.interiorhealth.ca for a complete listing. Many physician offices also provide vaccines free to those who are eligible. The flu shot is proven safe and effective and is free for: • People 65 years and older and their caregivers/household contacts • Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts • Children and adolescents (6 months to 18 years) with conditions treated for long periods of time with Acetylsalicylic acid and their household contacts • Adults who are very obese • Aboriginal people • Healthy children age 6-23 months • Household contacts and caregivers of infants age 0-23 months • Pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during influenza season and their household contacts. • Residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities • Healthcare and other care pro-

It is 70 to 90 per cent effective in preventing influenza in healthy children and adults. People not eligible for free flu vaccine through the publicly-funded program should contact their physician, local pharmacy, walk-in clinic, travel clinic or private provider.

Breaking fast in the a.m.

After a night’s rest, the digestive system is at it’s peak. Breaking the fast, other wise known as breakfast, should not only raise the 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 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

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. Make extra brown rice for dinner and re-heat in the morning, add diced fruit and cinnamon on top.

Scopes by Stenya Oct. 13 - Oct 19 Aries

The synchronicities of life can amaze you this week. What seems like mere coincidence can hold deeper meanings and even life changing decisions for the better. Know that you are on the right path right now.

Taurus

It is important this week to recognize how you can set yourself up for success. If you are constantly thinking about others and leaving yourself out, you can end up being forgotten about. When you take just as good of care of yourself as you do to others amazing things can happen.

Gemini

Joyous harmonies resonate in your life right now. You may be feeling contented and at peace with most aspects, like your relationship and work. There could potentially be some loose ends in a couple areas of your life. Take the time now to tie these loose ends up.

Cancer

Knowing that you have a support in a time of uncertainty in your life can majorly help you deal with any drama that comes up right now. Family, close friends, or your significant other are there and behind you one hundred percent.

Leo

If you can look beyond things being black and white, you can see there is a whole other world of possibilities! Sometimes we can limit ourselves by only creating two options, like yes or no.

Virgo

Your overt criticism can be hindering your progress. Tempered with an open mind and sense of humour, your attention to detail can be extremely valuable. Avoid getting caught up in the small stuff right now. If you can see the bigger picture you can make the key decisions for success.

New life to the curling club A little good-old-fashioned volunteer work goes a long way. While many curling centres close down for the summer, the Executive Committee for the Nelson Curling Club has proved that summer is the most critical time to do their work. Once the curling season begins, it’s just a matter of following through with what has already been created. After an eventful rush last spring, generated by leveraging the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the Nelson Curling Club had a great summer run in the Kraft/ TSN Celebration Tour Contest. They’ve now carried that momentum into the start of this curling season. So far they have completed four grant applications that, if successful, will be used toward extensive club accessibility renovations, a Girls Can Curl program and the training of local coaches. Smaller projects such as a new paint job, new sound system and upgrades to the bar are currently in progress and have been made possible from fundraising and other grants. These are all a part of a bigger plan to attract outside parties to the facility for event rentals.

Their 2010/11 season plans are guided by a new strategic plan for the club, that aligns itself with the strategic plan of Curl BC. In addition to their new website, they will be taking advantage of marketing campaigns from both Curl BC and the Canadian Curling Association, to target the recruitment of new participants to the sport. Free training will be provided to new and returning curlers, and programs are in place for youth and adult development, and community business involvement. The enthusiastic club volunteers are members of the first curling centre outside of BC’s lower mainland to launch the Capital One Rocks & Rings Program, a program that exposes curling to children and families that would otherwise not receive the opportunity, with the ultimate goal being increased participation in curling. The club will play host to the West Kootenay Juvenile Zone Playdown, Dec. 18-19. Registration will be held at the curling club (302 Cedar St, Nelson) on Friday, October 15 at 7pm. Participants can register as teams or individuals. More details can be found at www.nelsoncurling.com or by phoning 250-352-7628. - Submitted by Curl BC

Another successful run for Terry

SUBMITTED

This year, three Nelson schools participated in the Terry Fox National School Run on Sept. 30. Students from South Nelson Elementary, Hume Elementary and Blewett Elementary met at Lakeside Park to show their support for Terry Fox’s cause. This year, there was a challenge between the schools to see which school could raise the most money for the cause. The winning school’s principal had the special honour of kissing a goat, much to the students’ delight! South Nelson’s principal was the first to kiss the goat, having raised the largest amount, but both Hume and Blewett’s principals also showed team spirit by kissing the goat as well! A total of $1,853 was raised for this very worthy cause.

Libra

You keep true to your word and doing what you say and friends and colleagues highly respect you for it, but you may be wasting breath by repeatedly stating your achievements.

Scorpio

Increasing self awareness can be the key to dealing with any difficult situation right now. By getting to know yourself better and recognizing how and why you succeed or do not is the first step. You can make positive changes and overcome the challenging situations.

Sagittarius

Offerings and gifts can be flowing your way right now. Remember to be a gracious receiver and accept wholeheartedly what is being offered at this time. Avoid waiting to take up the offer.

Before moving forward to the next goals in life, make sure all loose ends are tied up. Anything that you left hanging can seriously be holding up your long term plans or even your next short term move.

Aquarius

You may have been taking a crash course or going through an intense learning curve recently. Taking time to integrate all the new things you have learned can be an essential step to the learning process.

Pisces

As a Piscean you can be highly intuitive. This is a considerable strength to your character. You can use this intuition to help and inspire others in life. You can make a huge impact on people.

Do you ever feel like a bomb has went off in your bathroom? Towels everywhere, drawers exploding and your counters are impossible to find beneath all the lotions, potions, makeup, and shaving gear; or does your bathroom look ok on the surface, but you cross your fingers that your guests don’t decide to peak under the sink or in your medicine cabinet? Here are a few tips that will turn your unruly bathroom into a retreat in no time: Start with getting a garbage bag, box, rag, Vacuum/ broom, and some cleaning products. Then start clearing every drawer, shelf, and cabinet. Start by tossing out the old and the unused. This includes expired medicines, stale, dated make-up

HOME & GARDEN

and hair products, etc. Old medicine should be taken to your local pharmacy, and whatever else cannot be recycled goes in the garbage. Keepers go in the box. Please be realistic about what you are keeping; ladies I’m talking to you. We all only need so many brushes, potions, and nail polish bottles! Now that your surfaces and drawers are all clear give them a good cleaning. Categorize all your items, for example: brushes, nail-care, vitamins/ prescriptions, and first aid. Place your categories in labeled baskets, containers, or accessory bags. When things are contained they are more accessible. Containers are easy to move for cleaning and clearing the space. Use decorative containers for storing cotton balls, bars

restoring order Jenn Heale of soap, or q-tips, and store the back-ups under the sink or in your linen closet. If you have minimal storage, don’t overstock on toiletries. You can try to create more storage by: installing extra shelves, placing a shoe organizer on the back of the door for supplies, using hooks for extra towels, blow dryers, or bags of toys, Or if your handy you can create cabinets in-between the studs in your walls. Now, go and enjoy some well deserved time in your new oasis.
