NELSON BECKER (L-R) Saria Andrew, Darlene Avis, Dan Buckeer, Lee Reid and Quinn Laforet hold up the beginning efforts of the SEED project in one of the Lakeside Park Greenhouses

New Nelson non-profit plans to make use of Lakeside Park Greenhouses A new non-profit group calling themselves by the name of SEEDS (Seniors Economic Environment Development) will be occupying the greenhouses at Lakeside Park. The project will run during the nine to 11 months of the year when the greenhouses are not in use, essentially Aug/ Sept 2012 to May/June 2013. “ I was aware of the underused and sadly empty greenhouses at Lakeside Park. I walk past them every day. They used to radiate with colour and beauty.� Says Lee Reid, SEEDS coordinator. SEED offers seniors and youth the opportunity to make a meaningful

contribution to community well being. The participants will grow vegetables to sell as well as provide sustainable food production for low income groups and seniors. There is potential for partnership community groups such as the Nelson Food Cupboard, Nelson Cares, Our Daily Bread, Rotary, and others. SEED also plans to have tours, workshops, and programs for school children. The group is set to start very small by growing vegetables in pots and using donated materials from the community. They hope in time to renovate the greenhouses into far more effective

food production facilities, while using very little heat. In order to keep the project going the group is accepting donations of cash along with supplies such as: soil, bonemeal, blood meal, kelp meal, unsterilised worm castings, epsom salts, planter boxes and light units. SEED is sponsored by The Nelson Seniors Coordinating Society and The Kootenay Food Strategy Society. Donations may also be made directly to the Nelson and District Credit Union.

A westbound Ford Explorer SUV, driven by a Winlaw, B.C. resident, was overtaking/passing a logging truck, and possibly another vehicle, in the 2 lane-passing lane. The SUV lost control, and crossed the center line into the eastbound lane. Two oncoming motorcycles

took evasive action. One motorcycle driver braked and then put the bike on it’s side. The driver fell off the motorcycle, tumbled and suffered serious injuries. The injured motorcycle driver was taken to Nelson Hospital and was pronounced dead. The second motorcycle driver was able to safely come to a stop. West Kootenay Traffic Services have taken over the investigation. The deceased was the only occupant on his motorcy-

cle. His adult son, who was operating the other motorcycle, witnessed the incident. Victim Services were called out and are assisting the family. The notification of next of kin has been completed.

Smoke from new fires visible in Nelson, Castlegar Two fires were discovered on August 12, at around 1:30 p.m. and are suspected to have been caused by lightning. The 2-hectare fire burning in Five Mile Creek northeast of Nelson is located in a watershed and fire officials are taking precautions to keep the area protected. The fire is not threatening any communities or structures. A three-person initial attack crew, three helicopters and airtankers are onsite. A 0.2-hectare fire is burning northwest of Castlegar in the area above Syringa. No structures or communities are threatened. Airtankers are

responding and a three-person initial attack crew and three helicopters are on-route. Several other spot-sized fires (less than one hectare) are burning as a result of thunderstorms within the fire centre during the past week. Most of these fires are located in remote areas and are not affecting nearby communities. The Southeast Fire Centre would like to thank everyone who reported wildfires this weekend. Early reporting is an important step in ensuring our success in extinguishing fires while they are still small.

Gray Creek Pass permanently closed Gray Creek Pass,, rated “most important back road in B.C.” has closed. According to Russell Musio of the Back Road Map books, the Gray Creek Pass is rated as the “the most important Back Road in BC, if not in Canada.” Much to the dismay of Tom Lymbery of the Kootenay Lake Chamber of Commerce, the prospects for re-opening this important connection between the East Kootenay and Kootenay Lake seems very doubtful these days. The pass was hit hard by mudslides, sinkholes and debris from this year’s record runoff. “The Gray Creek Pass is closed completely because of slides and subsidences - the first time in the 22 years of this, the only direct route between East and West Kootenay,” said Lymbery. “This road was constructed in 1989-90 jointly funded between Forest Service

and Highways. Forest Service have had to carry the load for maintenance, replacing all the wooden bridges with excellent cement ones. They also spent $80,000 in upgrading the Western side in 2011.” Lymbery went to say, “this is a most important tourism resource route and business is sufferiing because of this -- and especially because this closes the Trans Canada Trail westward from Kimberley. Unfortunately there are no records of the usage by Europeans who seem to know more about this than locals but there have been cyclists arriving in Gray Creek having come over the Pass - from SPAIN!!” Several major slides on the Redding Creek road as well as other slides and subsidences on the west side require at least $120,000 as reported by Forest Service.

A story circulated a few years ago that claimed taping a penny to a bee sting for 15 minutes would prevent pain and swelling. Apparently, a chemical reaction with the copper in the penny would draw out the venom’s poison. To check out whether this story has any scientific merit, I did what most people do, I googled the word “penny, copper and bee sting”. The only results I got were websites related to urban legends. I then searched the PubMed database, a site that contains more than 17 million citations from life

sciences journals, with the same search words. I got no results; meaning that there are no published credible scientific studies on this so-called bee sting remedy. There is however a lot of published data on the major chemical in the bee’s venom, melittin. Melittin is a cationic hemolytic peptide (cationic means it is positively charged, haemolytic means it destroys blood cells, and peptide means it is a chain of amino acids). Melittin is a poison in the sense that it causes cell death. It does this by altering a cell’s membrane, which normally functions to control what goes in and out of a cell. The changes in the cell mem-

Engineering Technician Selkirk Forest District, is the source for this estimate as she has made at least 8 trips to investigate, however the Redding Creek slides have prevented a trip all the way. This has also prevented cyclists from making it through. “It is very discouraging to see such an important road closed. When it first opened over 20 years ago it was billed as a major economic benefit to commerce and tourism.,” added Lymbery. Tom Lymbery and Kootenay Lake Chamber of Commerce are encouraging all interested parties to contact their MLA’s, MP’s, mayors, city administrators, tourism officials, BC Forest Service official, Regional District representatives and others to help move the re-opening of this important transportation corridor forward.

brane triggered by melittin lead to changes in signalling pathways in the cell and cause cellular death. Despite the fact that melittin is a poison, it does have some potential therapeutic uses. Because melittin kills cells, it may be useful to fight cancer if scientists can find an effective way of targeting the melittin to cancer cells. Some studies have also shown that melittin has anti-inflammatory properties and could be used to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis. As such, despite its bad reputation as a painful component of bee venom, melittin does have its redeeming qualities!

Publisher’s note

By Nelson Becker

What do you think about Shambhala?

Another year of Shambhala has come and gone leaving some people of Nelson with divergent points of view about the annual music festival. Some people feel it is of extreme benefit to the economy

from the donations that Shambhala has made to our community, such as funds for the Skatepark, Selkirk College and other community organizations. Others feel that it abuses our social services and people are

Page 5

concerned about the potential of safety and health hazards. This week’s survey question is an effort to provide a forum for discussion, not to advocate for any peticular position.

Is Shambhala good or bad for our community? Click here or visit the link below

www.surveymonkey.com/s/Shambhala_good_or_bad

Last week’s survey responses:

How much do you tip?

EVERYONE has his/her hand out. Everyone thinks they are worth more than they’re worth. If I see a tip jar on a counter, that’s a signal to me that I get no extra service, but you want more money for simply doing your job. I never tip those. TAXI drivers would normally fall between 10 and 15%. Bartenders/Bar Servers I would tip each time served or if running a tab would tip more like 15 to 20%. This survey doesn’t give enough options. :-)

I start at 15% and it goes up or down depending on service. Because servers usually have more to do and have to tip out to bartenders and kitchen staff, I tip 20% if the service is good. I put money in a barista’s dish every so often but they don’t have to do as much as the others listed up there... the overhead for taxi drivers and hair dressers is pretty big, and hotel maids have to put up with a lot of crap, so I tip them 15% at least. ALL tips depend on quality of service

Garbage service in Nelson needs change Dear Editor, I am a Nelson resident. Someone has dropped the ball in regards to encouraging reduction of household trash. With the present system of paying $40 dollars a year whether you have garbage or not. If i have 6 bags of garbage a year tne cost is $40 + $9 = $49 divide by 6 =$8.16 per bag. The house holder who has a bag a week pays $40 + (52x $1.50)$78=$118. Divide by 52 bags=$2.26

per bag . The more garbage put into the fill the cheaper it is. This does not encourage responsible trash reduction. ,this is not fair to the people who are doing their best. They should not have to carry the burden of those who don’t care. It would be better to charge full price for each bag, so that those who abuse the system pay their full share. Sam Wolfe Nelson B.C.

USUALLY 15-20% in restaurants, but can be under 10% for pathetic service or 25% for exceptional service. Too many Nelson servers do not get that a little friendliness and a smile can double the size of their tip. Nothing drops a tip faster than asking for my bill and then having to wait for the server to collect. If I ask for my bill it means I want to leave.

DEPENDS on quality of service, otherwise, 15% LOUSY service = no tips; coffee baristas ? no tips, price of coffee (lattes,etc) is high enough. Hotel maids ? why tip ? In Australia, no tipping is the norm. I don’t like the idea of tipping. It seems that generally only a small proportion of service providers expect a tip.

This week’s

ExpressNewsUpdate was produced by:

Glacier-Howser could still move ahead

West Kootenay EcoSociety warned this week that the Glacier-Howser Independent Power Proposal could still move ahead despite a delay of almost three years. The Environmental Assessment Office is now considering whether to move ahead after the Environmental Review was suspended in September 2009. The proposal was suspended in order to allow AXOR to provide more data in support of their conclusion that the project would not harm fish in Howser Creek. A working group of scientists and First Nations representatives recently concluded that the Montreal-based energy company has not yet provided sufficient evidence. Nevertheless, the EAO is considering whether to abandon the review, allow more time, or continue with the environmental review process despite the concerns of the working group. “It would be outrageous for the EAO to blatantly disregard the science, First Nations, and the public by moving ahead with this review,” said David Reid of West Kootenay EcoSociety. “This project is going to hurt fish, and no amount of

stalling will change that. For that reason alone, it’s time for BC to put this terrible project behind us once and for all.” Prior to the new developments, many had considered the project to be all but dead after a provincial policy shift. Premier Christy Clark announced in February that a change in the definition of energy self-sufficiency had reduced the need for long term power contracts. Energy Minister Rich Coleman said in August 2011, that he had no plans for new private power contracts. Nevertheless, the draft BC Hydro resource plan now includes “run-of-river” IPPs among plans for up to 2000 gigawatts of new power. The proposed hydro project would bury 50-75% of the water from four creeks north of Argenta into 16km of underground tunnels, dramatically reducing flows in the creek systems. The proposal has drawn the wrath of local citizens—1200 of whom who attended a rally and public meeting in Kaslo—as well as environmental groups across the province.

Re-open the Civic Theatre

The Civic has been closed for sometime and if we don’t do something about it, the curtains will remain closed forever. What separates a movie from watching it at home to watching it at a theatre? Try as you may, you can’t replicate the feeling of excitement a theatre can bring with the large screen, and the general ambience. DVD’S or Netflix can bring some of that experience to you but overall they pale in comparison to what the Civic can give to you. The Civic Theatre was the cities main outlet to

the film industry and without it our main venue into that industry has been cutoff. To re-open the Civic, a good start would be to go to the campaign over at civictheatre.ca. It accepts donations to help support the reopening of the theatre as well as working towards a plan to reopen the theatre. Film is a key form of entertainment that needs a more prominent avenue in our town,the Civic is our best shot of supporting the industry. Although we may have alternative avenues to film; The Civic is to important of a building to lose. Curtains up!

Civic Theatre funding drive

As the Nelson Civic Theatre Society ramps up its membership drive, creative minds are hard at work. “If you’re at the Nelson & District Community Complex during the month of August, check out the wrist band draw prize,” says Membership Committee member Josh Wapp. This month’s prize is a singing telegram courtesy of NCTS, featuring Josh Wapp in full usher uniform to deliver the winner’s notification. The prize is professional musician and actress Bessie Wapp in movie star costume, who will sing a song and play her accordion—ideal for birthday parties and anniversaries. “It’s a fun way to promote our membership drive,” says Wapp. With more than 250 memberships sold to date and a grant in place to support the undertaking of a comprehensive feasibility study, the big screen is within reach accord-

ing to Nelson Civic Theatre Society president Anne DeGrace. “Memberships continue to sell steadily,” she explains. “We’re halfway to our goal of 500. It’s a great vote of confidence.” Memberships can be purchased any time at sponsors Baker Street Menswear and Otter Books, at the NCTS booth around town, and online at www.civictheatre.ca. “We still need some good people for the membership drive,” she says, “as well asprofessionals: a web designer would be great, a graphic designer, and a publicity maven. We also still need experts in all aspects of architectural and interior design, and builders and contractors to help problem-solve and provide estimates on renovations.” Anyone wishing to help should contact volunteer@civictheatre.ca.

“Like a precious little birdie she sings and floats away Landing where it’s possible, living day by day Always going on, as a modern troubadour Singing her own songs so lovely and so pure” by Hans Witjes, in Holland

Photo by Marcel Houweling

Saturday, Aug. 25, 8 p.m. at Expressions, 554 Wards St. When Mark Rheaume, music director at CBC radio, named Orit Shimoni one of his top three Canadian artists of the year, it was in response to her debut album, Cinematic Way. Since its 2006 release, Shimoni, (musically known as Little Birdie), has been touring across Canada and in Europe, playing festivals, bars, cafes, show venues, house concerts, and even trains. Her second album, I Left the City Burning, (2009), charted for three months on earshot! And was also a favourite on CKUA. With two independent Canadian albums, and in true troubadour fashion, Shimoni shed all semblance of a “regular” life, and has been traveling from town to town, performing and recording, in various ensembles. Touring solo, she often performs with local musicians, known and unknown, Her third album, Sadder Music, was written and recorded in Berlin, and is due for official release in Canada this fall. An immensely prolific and versatile songwriter, Little Birdie is hailed for her writing, (which has been compared to that of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, among others) as well as her moving singing voice, which has been compared to Loretta Lynn and Emmylou Harris, as well as Chrissie Hynde, Patti Smith, Margot Timmins and Neko Case.
