Be a culture vulture Columbia Basin Culture Tour

August 11 & 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

NELSON BECKER (L-R) Ashley Heinrichs and Monica Carpendale are part of the Kootenay Art Therapy Institute which is one of 70 art groups participating in this year’s Columbia Basis Culture Tour.

The Kutenai Art Therapy Institute (KATI) is participating in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour with an Open House, Community Art Studio and Art Show. The Open Studio will provide an opportunity for individuals and families to make art with recycled materials. This will include constructions, assemblages, collages and painting. The Art Show will include art from Art for People. Art for People donates 50% from the sale of the artwork to provide grants for art materials and equipment to projects around the world. This years Columbia Basin Trust tour features 70 locations with everything from clay, glass, history, paintings, writings, archives, and quilts. Self-directed and free of charge, the culture tour is a great opportunity to meet people behind the scenes at galleries and museums, visit studios not normally open, and shop for original art or fine crafts.

Flooding emergencies become long-term recovery July 26 - The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) will lower its activation level from Level 2 to Level 1 as of this weekend and begin to focus on long-term recovery and assistance for Johnsons Landing residents and others affected by flooding, sloughs or landslides, While the RDCK will remain ready to respond to emergencies, regional district staff and other agencies who have been working fulltime at the EOC will return to their regular duties. A recovery manager has been hired to respond to the needs of Johnsons Landing resi-

dents who are still evacuated and whose homes or property have been damaged or destroyed or who are cut off from the rest of the community by the slide. The recovery manager will coordinate response and recovery efforts with the RDCK’s emergency coordinator, geotechnical experts and other agencies. During the 2012 freshet, the RDCK declared states of emergency in seven of its eleven areas and in addition, the municipalities of Kaslo and Castlegar declared their own states of emergency. All declarations have now been lifted

except for Area D in Johnsons Landing where 14 properties remain under an evacuation order since a massive landslide hit. The slide also destroyed four homes and severely damaged two other homes. Anyone who has experienced damage to their home from flooding or landslides may be eligible for Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA). Details on how to apply for DFA are available on the Emergency Management BC website at www.pep.bc.ca. There is a 90day deadline to apply, so anyone affected is encouraged to do so

even if they are uncertain their claim will be approved. The RDCK could not have responded effectively to the many emergencies the region experienced this spring and summer without the immense support and help received from local communities, the provincial government, the Red Cross and other agencies and volunteers who stepped forward to work countless hours on behalf of their fellow citizens. Search and Rescue, Emergency Social Services volunteers and the RCMP deserve special thanks for their efforts. -RDCK

MLA Michelle Mungall is asking the people of the NelsonCreston Constituency to help choose recipients of the prestigious Queens Diamond Jubilee Medals. Mungall has been tasked with nominating four individuals to receive a Medal. “To receive one of these Medals is a great honour” says Mungall “it is important to me that members of our communities have the opportunity to reflect on the reign of Queen

Elizabeth as well as recognize the contributions of their peers.” The process Mungall has developed to collect community input involves three stages. In the first stage anyone can nominate a member of their community by filling out a nomination form. Next a selection committee representing all regions of the constituency will review the nominations and create a shortlist of nominees. These shortlisted candidates will be

posted on Mungall’s website for an online vote to determine the Medal nominees to the Queen’s Section Committee. Nominations will be accepted by mail or email from August 1 -31. Nomination forms can be downloaded from www.michellemungall.com or picked up from locations all across the Nelson-Creston constituency. Online voting will take place September 10- 21. Anyone with questions

about the process can contact Mungall’s Community office at 1-877-388-4498. Speaking to the democratic nature of the process, Mungall encourages everyone to get involved. “I want everyone to have the opportunity to recognize their friends and neighbours that are doing amazing work to make our communities great.” -Submitted by the office of Michelle Mungall

Home invasion with assault vehicle. The victim was taken to KLH by a friend. Due to the serious nature of the injuries sustained by the victim, he was transported to Trail hospital for treatment. Although the attack was extremely brutal, police do not feel that Nelson residents are at immediate risk. Based on the information that has been gleaned thus far, Nelson Police investigators believe that this was not a random attack and that the victim was known to his attackers. Police are disturbed by the seriousness of the assault, as well as the time and place of this incident.

Investigators continue to follow up on information already obtained from their investigation, but are asking anyone with any information to contact Nelson Police Department

The Nelson Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in their investigation into a serious home invasion that occurred on the evening of July 26th, 2012. At approximately 10:15 pm, a Nelson resident was in his home in lower Fairview. He heard a commotion at his rear door, which included the sound of glass breaking. The male attended the back door and was confronted by a group of males. The males, some of whom were armed, assaulted the victim causing significant injuries to him. The victim was able to break away from the group during the attack and ran off. The suspects left the scene in an awaiting

Community Threads program starts at the Women’s Centre Community Threads is an intergenerational program that consists of two parts: free monthly workshops on learning specific skills such as knitting, quilting and embroidery; and free weekly skill sharing sessions where women will mentor each other in textile skills. Each workshop is taught by skilled local women sharing their love of the craft. Every Friday you can come and meet with mentors who can answer questions and help you make progress

on your chosen project. Community Threads can also help if you need some yarn or fabric or knitting needles. Do you have some knitting needles, crochet hooks, fabric, yarn or craft supplies that you no longer need? The Women’ Centre is looking for all kinds of supplies that we can pass along to women who need them. If you are interested in registering for a workshop, or finding out more, please call Penny at 250 551 4951

Slide assessments must be made where people live

Publisher’s note Every winter in our recreational ski areas, we have many experts who either paid or unpaid, do avaBy Nelson Becker lanche assessments and report as to the safety of each area. We must put at least

that same effort into slide assessment in our various communities. Because of environmental conditions an area may become more prone or less prone to a slide, so ongoing observations must be made. We cannot give in to the rationalizations that “we don’t have time” or “we don’t have money”. We can easily see that

prevention is way more effective than dealing with a tragedy after it happens. We won’t be able to stop landslides; it appears that climate change has made areas that were historically stable, unstable today. If we are proactive we certainly can mitigate damages that may be caused by either climate change or inappropriate logging.

How can we be better prepared for emergency situations? Click here or visit the link below

www.surveymonkey.com/s/Emergency_Situations

Last week’s survey responses:

Do you think the world is becoming less violent?

30% of our survey responses say yes, while 70% disagree What can be done to bring about a more peaceful world? MEDITATION STOP the killing, love your neighbor, pray for peace! EMPHASISE the positive in the mass media. SO much crime can be attributed to youth, lacking parental supervision. For example....vandalism, “tagging”, shoplifting ..and so forth. Community service should be strictly enforced as well as mandatory curfews for youth, under the age of 16. Regretfully, we have a staggering amount of “parents” who have woefully ignored discipline, education and strict moral values. REUCE violence on TV and movies.Reduce negative reporting in the media. Elevate the vibration of each individual life...don’t feed

the angry emotions the jealous emotions the hate filled emotions... Cultivate compassion. ACKNOWLEGE human beings as such, and do unto others as we’ ld do to ourselves. REDUCING world population by about 4 billion will remove most of the conflict sources - lack of food, water, territory. A reduction of this scale is impossible by ethical / fair means. But the violence of war, famine, pestilence, and disease are our fate if we cannot regulate our population to fit resources. THE Keep the Beat festival was a great example of what can be done to contribute peace. TAX the churches.

Voting deadline looms for One Book, One Kootenay winner It’s simple, really. Read the books; mark your ballot. Tell the world—or at least the Kootenays—which book from the One Book, One Kootenay 2012 shortlist you think should get the nod. The deadline for voting for the book all Kootenay book-lovers should read is August 10th. Ballot boxes are in libraries throughout the Kootenay Library Federation. One Book, One Kootenay (OBOK) is a region-wide book club that celebrates the work of the talented writers living in the Kootenay Boundary. Three Kootenay authors share the spotlight for the fourth annual One Book, One Kootenay honour. The 2012 nominees are Yes Sister, No Sister by Jennifer Craig, The Third Crop: A personal and historical journey into the photo albums and shoeboxes of the Slocan Valley 1800s to early 1940s by

Rita Moir, and Boundary Country by Tom Wayman. Jennifer Craig’s semi-autobiographical novel, which made the London Times bestseller list, is a funny, engaging story of a group of trainee nurses in the 1950s in Leeds, England. Yes Sister, No Sister is rife with long hours, bodily fluids, goodnatured camaraderie, and Craig’s trademark Yorkshire humour. Tom Wayman’s Boundary Country is a collection of stories that explore boundaries human and geographical to which Wayman brings his gift for insightful observation and wry humour. A multiple award-winner, Wayman has penned more than 20 books of poetry, essays, and fiction. Rita Moir’s The Third Crop isn’t just about the Slocan Valley, rich though that valley may be. Full of

photographs and down-to-earth prose, we can laugh and cry with these country-dwellers and relate to their challenges and triumphs. Moir’s previous books have all been shortlisted or have won awards, including BC’s Hubert Evans Award. The selected book will be announced September 8, on International Literacy Day. The 2012 OBOK author will then embark on a five-library tour and enjoy the honour of being the One Book, One Kootenay recipient for 2012—but all the books are winners, of course. OBOK is public a library supported program initiated by the Kootenay Library Federation. For more information go to the One Book, One Kootenay website at obok.ca, where you can find out more about the authors and their books.
