Corinna Rose tours the west

photo submitted

Corinna Rose launches interactive songwriting contest in advance of her Western Canada Tour. She stops in Nelson at Expressions Cafe on Tuesday, September 10.

Corinna Rose is bringing her Western Canada tour to Nelson, on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 8 p.m. at Expressions Cafe. If you listen carefully to singersongwriter Corinna Rose’s debut fulllength album Northeast Southwest, you may note the influences of WPallett and the McGarrigle Sisters in almost equal proportions. The album marks a major evolution from Rose’s 2011 self-titled folk-pop EP. In lieu of her Western Canada

Tour, Rose recently launched a video encouraging fans to write their own verse to “So It Goes”, and responses have been flooding in. The verse is simple - rhyming couplets that describe a past dating experience that went awry. “We’ve been collecting verses over the last several months, you, too, can turn your excruciating breakups into silly rhyming couplets with 4 simple steps!” explains Rose in the video. The video can be viewed here:

More info about Corinna at: www.corinnarose.com and tickets for the Nelson show can be acquired by calling 250-354-3910 or pick them up at 554 Ward St or Eddies Music. submitted

Supporting the bereaved Nelson & District Hospice Society is offering a free Grief Support Series for anyone grieving the loss of someone through death. The group will run for six weeks starting September 12 through October 17 from 10:00 – Noon. Pre-registration is required but attendance is free.

For those who have lost someone through death, the cycle of loss through detachment, despair and anger to recovery can be a lonely, frightening and overwhelming experience, even when family and friends are trying to support us. A grief support group provides a safe, supportive environment where no one

is expected to say or do anything they are uncomfortable with. Grief is a healthy response to loss that needs to be acknowledged and expressed before we can move on. Working through feelings about losses and sharing them with others who are also grieving decreases our isolation and loneliness while helping us

What’s in the Cupboard? Recipes from the Nelson Food Cupboard Applesauce This freezes well and can be used throughout the year for lunch snacks, desserts, condiments, as an ingredient in baking and curries, or to top oatmeal.

Peel, core and roughly chop as many apples as you want. Put apples in a pot and add a small amount of water. Set the pot over medium heat until the apples start to soften. Stir fairly often. When the apples are soft, use a potato masher to crush the apples in the pot. Keep cooking a mashing until you get the desired consistency. If the apples are not too sweet you can add a bit of brown sugar, maple syrup or honey to taste. If the apples are not too juicy, you may need to add a bit of water to the pot. If they apples are too sweet, a bit of lemon juice will tone the sweetness down.

Nelson City Police news: school zones, puncture wounds School’s back in so please remember to watch out for children walking, scootering and cycling to school. Show your children the safest places to cross the road - remind them to look left and right for vehicles. Motorist need to remember to STOP if a school patrol sign is extended… regardless of which side of the road it is on, SLOW DOWN around schools and be prepared to stop at all school crossing points, KEEP plenty of SPACE between you and cars in front. And please, remember the speed limit in School Zones is 30 kms but with the excitement of first days please keep speeds well under the 30 km limit. On Friday, August

30, the Nelson Police Department was called to assist two other emergency agencies. Upon attendance the Provincial Ambulance Service staff was busy administering emergency medical aid to a middle aged man. The man was suffering from puncture wounds to his chest. The Nelson police officers began their investigation as the male was removed to hospital. He was treated in Nelson and transported to Kelowna via air ambulance. The officers immediately found that the circumstances were highly suspicious. The police were not immediately able to establish the cause of the wounds. The matter was investigated with the

assistance of the investigators in Kelowna. As a result of a thorough investigation, the Nelson Police Department investigator has determined that the wounds were self-inflicted. The male remains in hospital receiving treatment. The Nelson Police would like to remind the youth of Nelson that images sent via electronic means are not easily deleted. Once a person sends images the sender loses control over how those images are distributed. In some instances compromising images sent to others via electronic means can cause considerable problems, embarrassment and stress. Those distributing compromising or pornographic images of youth could find

themselves facing charges of distributing child pornography. What seems like a good idea today may cause regret tomorrow. The Nelson Police Department experienced a busy Labour Day weekend. The weather was great and people were in the mood to celebrate. The weekend was highlighted with the West Kootenay Pride celebrations culminating with a parade and rally on Sunday. Thanks to the parade organizers, the volunteer marshals and the participants, the parade was a came off without a hitch. The parade was well attended by an enthusiastic crowd on Baker Street. submitted by the Nelson Police Department

What is radon?

My neighbour has had a radon test kit recently installed in their house. What is radon and how does it affect us?”

Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

It is great to see your interest in this issue as it affects everybody. Radon is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, naturally occurring element that comes from the radioactive decay of uranium. Uranium eventually breaks down into radon and radon decay products, which is considered to be a group A carcinogen (known to cause cancer in humans). The risk of cancer is caused from inhaling radon and radon decay products. The radon is exhaled but the radon

decay products will stick to lung tissues and further break down and irradiate the lung tissue, which increases our risk of lung cancer from damage to the DNA cells. As radon breaks down into it’s decay products it can enter into any building (home, workplace, school, etc.) due to negative pressures inside the building or positive soil pressures around the building. These pressures can change from hour to hour, day to day, season to season. Currently, Health Canada has set a recommended level of any building exceeding 200

becquerel per cubic metre to have remedial measures undertaken. While there is risk of potentially developing lung cancer at any level of radon exposure, Health Canada believes this is an acceptable level. Geologically, the Kootenay Boundary area is considered to have elevated levels of uranium in the soil. However, the only way to know for sure if your radon levels are above the threshold is to have your home or workplace tested. Radon is an atom, meaning it can enter your home through the smallest of openings. All founda-

tions and foundation types are susceptible to radon entry. Typically, concerning radon levels are limited to the first three levels above grade due to it’s dissipation in the air, however it is sometimes possible to have elevated readings above these levels as mechanical chases, elevator shafts and stairwells can provide a direct route for the radon and radon decay products. For more information visit the following websites and type in radon: Health Canada: www.hc-sc.gc.ca or CMHC: www.cmhc-schl.gc.ca

How does sunscreen work? dr. science Christine Humphries

Many of us have spent time outdoors without using sunscreen and have suffered the consequences of our actions: a sunburn! But how does applying sunscreen prevent a sunburn? The redness resulting from unprotected exposure to the sun is caused by cellular damage from ultraviolet radiation. The body responds to the damage

by increasing blood flow, resulting in the characteristic lobster-red skin colour of many sunbathers. The cellular damage caused by sun exposure is the cause of at least two-thirds of all melanomas (the most serious form of skin cancer). Dermatologists therefore recommend using sunscreen not only to prevent sunburns but also to reduce the risk of cancer. There are two types of damaging ultraviolet rays: UVA rays which have the longest wavelength and cause the most damage to

skin, and; UVB rays which are responsible for sunburns. Sunscreens work by blocking or absorbing harmful sun rays on the skin. Opaque creams contain zinc oxide an inorganic compound that blocks UV radiation. Because these sunblocks leave a white gunky layer on the skin, most people prefer to use sunscreens that contain other ingredients (such as para-aminobenzoic acid, cinnamates, benzophenones) that absorb the ultraviolet radiation and dissipate it as heat. Broad spectrum sunscreens protect against

both UVA and UVB protection. There is presently however only a rating system that identifies the level of protection against UVB rays: the Sun Protection Factor (SPF). SPF is the amount of time unprotected skin versus sunscreen-protected skin will burn. Thus SPF 30 indicates that it will take 30 times longer for protected skin to burn than unprotected skin. This summer remember to follow the old adage “Slip on a T-shirt, Slap on a hat, Seek out shade and Slop on the sunscreen!”

Opinion&Editorial Kayak expedition to protect the Incomappleux River by the Valhalla Wilderness Society

West Kootenays — Eight of BC’s most skilled and daring kayakers will be pitting their prowess against the wild Incomappleux River near the southern interior towns of Revelstoke and Nakusp. The expedition will begin on September 3 and is expected to take at least seven days. Eighteen kilometers of the Incomappleux River are protected within Glacier National Park; but a further 17 kilometres runs through a 27,364hectare unprotected wilderness contiguous to the park. Along the river, there are grizzly bear havens in massive avalanche tracks, and an ancient rainforest with trees up to 1,800 years old and 4 metres in diameter. The total 35 kilometres of wild river is mostly whitewater and virtually unknown, due to its roadless nature, canyons and sometimes impenetrable bush. Access will require the explorers to carry heavily laden kayaks 13 kilometers across a high mountain pass and down steep slopes of potentially impenetrable slide alder to reach the river. The Incomappleux wilderness is included in the Valhalla Wilderness Society’s 156,460-hectare Selkirk Mountain Caribou Park Proposal. Last year, the Society was contacted by the West Kootenaybased Endangered Creeks Expedition (ECE) team, a group of kayakers who use their skills to help

protect wild rivers. They informed the Society that the Incomappleux would be their next big project, and it would be dedicated to VWS’s park proposal. “We greatly admire their publicspirited endeavor to save wild rivers,” says spokesperson Anne Sherrod, “but we were also keenly aware of the dangers, and concerned for their safety, and told them so. But now it looks like it’s going to happen. A ll we can do is hope that they will emerge safely and triumphantly — and do our best to make the most of their efforts in our work. Logging companies long ago cut down the ancient forest over twothirds of the river’s length, hauling away logs so big that only one could fit on a logging truck. The only thing that remains of the magnificent rainforest is trees that were a very far distance from the mill. The remaining forest is unparalleled anywhere in the interior of BC for its great age, the size of its trees, its low elevation, biodiversity and its intactness. Yet there are still legally-approved, proposed cutblocks in the remaining big trees that can be logged at any time that Interfor or the government decides to fix the bridge. The threat of private hydro development on the Incomappleux River and its tributaries was extinguished in 2012. When two Independent Power Producers (IPPs) applied for

Some of the kayakers have already tested their skills on the lower parts of the river. The upper part of the river will be even more challenging.

three investigative permits, they faced massive public opposition, and a stack of scientific reports documenting rare and endangered species. The companies withdrew their applications. “This expedition also highlights the crucial importance of wilderness to the human spirit,” says Sherrod. “The freedom and challenge of the wild calls to youths and hearty people of every generation. The kayakers are hoping that public recognition will help ensure that the river, its bears, its fish, and its majestic trees, will be wild and free forever. “Valhalla’s park proposal will benefit from what this expedition team is doing, even if they

have to turn back the first day,” says Sherrod. “Future generations should have opportunities to experience this rare inland rainforest river. Every person who has ever spent one blessed hour in nature should heed their call and write letters to government to protect the Selkirk Mountain Caribou Park Proposal.” A fact sheet, petition and 33-page report on the park proposal can be found on our Home Page at: http://www.vws.org VWS contact person: Anne Sherrod 250-358-2610 For more information on the kayak expedition contact: Carl Jacks cj@daintydeathy.com cell 250.551.4065

Editorial

War no more

Before we take any By Nelson Becker action in life on what we think are negative aspects of things, we must be sure of the intended outcome and make sure our actions lead to that outcome. The United States is talking about punishing the regime in Syria, by use of military force. I just don’t see how this could possibly help the millions of refugees, families, and children, who don’t care about politics, but just want to eat and feel secure. I’m hopeful today, this is just political and saber rattling. There is much more resistance to this military involvement in Syria, than there was against Saddam Husain in Iraq.We live in an international community and we’ve agreed to find diplomatic solutions through the

United Nations. I’m grateful that Canada does not see a military role in Syria and that the Liberal Leader, Justin Trudeau, has come out suggesting we should be taking in more refugees from Syria. If we really want to help the people, punishment should not be primary. That is one small way to help. There is much resistance against US involvement in the US, but also around the world. There are countries that are interested to help negotiate this mess that Obama’s saber rattling has created. While we in Canada do not have much say in what the US does, let us make sure our Canadian representatives understand that Canada, at its heart, is a peace-keeping nation and we support the action of the non-military kind. I wish us all peace.

Fish Heads and Flowers Flowers to a young family from Salmo for their compassion and generosity for helping to save a goose with an injured wing. He was abandoned by his mate and flock because he couldn’t fly. This family went out of their way to take him to the vet to be

treated and then found him a forever home. Their compassion for this bird was heartwarming. Thank you so much. Also a big flower to everyone who contributed in some way or another to this out of the ordinary adventure. Cheers to you all

My Opinion Out of Touch

The older generation may run things, but the lack of contact with today’s youth puts them at a severe disadvantage. One point of interest is lack of interest among young voters. Numerous factors for that but it primarily comes down to the candidates and the government not doing enough to motivate people to vote. If every candidate is going to give us the same old story then what incentive do we have to care? Being out of touch doesn’t come down to just that however. It comes down to many facets of our

daily lives, I have family who never understood how hard it is to find a job now a days. The days where you could get a job easily are gone, granted I’m not entirely sure that was ever the case but getting anything accomplished today can be hard. Its important to understand that the people who aren’t in sync with the rest of the world aren’t ignorant by choice but because the world is passing them by. Inform those you can so we can all be sensible to each other’s wants and needs. Maybe then we can all get along.

Indirectly 58.3%

comments: I am still worried about lasting contamination of the river despite many people saying everything is okay. My family member was hired for the clean up, which was great. I am saddened that he had to learn how things are covered up by government trying to save themselves from lawsuits, while putting families with children in harms way, letting them think water quality was fine. I feel sick to think about the long term affects for those people. So while I live in Nelson, I am effected by the truths that are covered up. It has been emotional for me to see the devastating effects caused by the preventable, fuel spill.

Not at all 8.3%
