West Kootenay Traffic Services: a busy year In 2013 the West Kootenay Traffic Services andWest Kootenay Integrated Road Safety Unit had a very busy year. We unfortunately had nine fatalities in the area. Of these nine fatalities two were alcohol related and two were pedestrian fatalities. The other causal factors were speed, mechanical or distracted driving. Our condolences go out to the families and friends who lost loved ones.

Drinking and driving, seatbelt and distracted driving are leading factors in serious or fatal collisions. This year 90 impaired drivers were taken of the road and 120 suspensions were issued in the West Kootenay Boundary area. The units served 1,430 seatbelt tickets and 325 distracted driving charges (cell phone). Drug possession seems to be on the

rise with 500 drug seizures. Excessive speed charges which goes with a 7 day seizure of the vehicle is also on the rise with 63 seizures. The units served over 7,300 violation tickets. The West Kootenay Traffic and IRSU units are striving to reduce crashes and injuries to our motoring public by enforcement and education in high crash areas. We urge all people

to slow down, buckle up, stay off the cell phone and get a designated driver. The consequences of an impaired driving charge financially and emotionally on an individual are tremendous. The West Kootenay Traffic and Integrated Road Safety Unit wish everyone a happy and safe 2014. submitted by the West Kootenay Traffic Services

RCMP news: fire to cop car At 2:45 a.m. on December 19, 2013 Slocan Lake RCMP responded to report of a police vehicle on fire in front of the Slocan Lake RCMP Detachment in New Denver, BC. Police attended to discover the front of the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. The New Denver Fire Department attended and were able to extinguish the fire prior to it spreading to the detachment.

Opinion&Editorial My Opinion

Science Fiction: The Most Relevant Literature

Despite the rise in literature aimed at teenagers and the female audience, I feel that science fiction is the most relevant of all literature. It can inspire and entertain but at the same time give the reader food for thought among other useful ideologies. Science Fiction is composed of some of the best ideas in literature conjuring incredible stories and incredible characters without the restrictions so many other genres provide. The stories present contain all of the hallmarks of a

Letters must be short (200 words maximum) and to the point.

great story but with less of the restrictions and in many cases, more artistic freedom. If you want to read a love story spanning thousands of years across time and space or if you just want a thriller set in a far off distant universe, Science Fiction has it. Humankind has provided such fascinating Difficulty Level concepts and stores and I believe Science Fiction is the ultimate pinnacle of those achievements. Grab a book within this genre and prepare for an adventure you will never forget. Indulge in a bit of science fiction and get reading!

TheSurvey

Development issues be proactive no reactive The OCP, which is short for Official By Nelson Becker Community Plan, was mandated by the provincial government some years ago. Part of its purpose is to have community participation in future development issues. This is really good

because this means we have thought about future developments before we have developers come in. We can tell developers ‘no we don’t want this’ or ‘yes that fits our community plan.’ If we think ahead, we can solicit development that meets our community interests.

As much as we would like, we can never think about everything, so developers will come to us with ideas we have not thought about. We must be prepared, so that they don’t push us, and we can develop into the kind of community we all want to live in.

1. Can Nelson and the West Kootenay benefit from more development? 2. What kind of development does this area need? take our survey below:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/wkdevelop Last week’s suvrvey response:

What is a positive wish you have for our community in 2014?

Comments:

I wish to share my message: care for each other’s families in our own community, share when you can, give when you can, take care of each other, share your smile to all in our community! Keep our Heritage look in Nelson. No Commons.

I wish a Wind Turbine was installed atop Nelson (Elephant) Mtn and even more green power was provided to the grid I wish our community stays exactly the same!
