ExpressionsNightCafÊ This week: Friday games night and baked goods It has been an exciting time since we opened the cafÊ for regular hours. By Nelson Becker I’ve been letting the cafe develop in a Kootenay, organic kind of way. Last year a number of musicians walked into Expressions on a quiet night and asked to play some music. I said, sure of course! After 10 minutes the conversation went toward, why don’t we have open-mic on Wednesday night? Right then and there I decided to commit Wednesday nights to open-

mic. Right now, open-mic night is the most successful regular event we hold. For the last few, we’ve had more than 20 performers with standing room only for the audience. A few weeks ago, two different groups of people asked if they could come down and play some games at the cafĂŠ on Friday night. Of course I said yes. So unless we have a special performance, Friday night has transformed into a regular “Games Night.â€? Whether it be Go, chess, scrabble, cribbage, checkers, or whatever your game of choice is, come on down and

meet other game players. The other big news is that we a now selling various baked goodies, along with our coffee and teas. We are selling Lucky Cupcakes and baked treats from John Ward Coffee shop. I see the cafe as being responsive to the community, so please let me know if you have any ideas for one time or regular events or any other suggestions to make what is already good, even better.

Hazardous Materials Response to Baker Street

At 11:32 a.m., Wed. Feb. 5, the Nelson Fire Department responded to a report of an unknown substance leaking in the Lane behind the Hume Hotel. All on duty members responded immediately with one engine and a command vehicle. Upon arrival of the Fire Chief, a strong ammonia-like odour was encountered. It was determined the vapor was escaping from a cylinder that had been damaged and was in the back of a pickup truck. The cylinder had been removed from the basement of the Red Fish Grill. The operator of the truck was directed to

take the cylinder to an area away from any persons and allow it to finish venting. The engine crew arrived and evaluated the extent of the contamination. A partial evacuation was conducted of the Hume Hotel until the odour had dissipated. The Nelson Police Department responded and assisted with keeping the public a safe distance away until the hazard was mitigated. EHS responded with two ambulance and treated the two workers that were exposed and transported them to hospital for decontamination and evaluation. The other ambulance

assessed hotel staff that were exposed and transported 4 employees to the hospital for observation. Public Works department responded to assist with the cleanup of the product that was on the ground. The incident is under investigation by Worksafe BC. Nelson Fire Rescue would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone any one that locates any items that may appear to be hazardous to contact the fire department prior to dismantling or moving. Simon Grypma Fire Chief, City of Nelson

The Nelson Police Department will be actively watching for distracted drivers during the month of February. Drivers are four times more likely to crash when talking on a hand held phone and 23 times more likely to get in a crash if they text behind the wheel. On average 34 people in the Southern Interior of British Columbia perish in distracted driving related crashes. Please think twice when tempted to initiate a call, answer your phone or text during driving. Please pull over when safe to so or simply wait until you reach your destination prior to using your hand held phone.Please join us at the Nelson Police Department in our campaign to reduce motor vehicle crashes and save lives. Police may issue a ticket with a penalty of $167 and three penalty points to drivers that are observed talking or texting on their hand held cell phones

while driving. On Wednesday morning, Jan. 29, the Nelson Police Department responded numerous motor vehicle collisions. The recent snowfall caused reduced traction on Nelson roads that resulted in thousands of dollars of vehicle damages. Winter weather can produce hazardous driving conditions. Please be vigilant, especially when weather changes occur. When weather conditions change drivers must be alert to the changing driving conditions. Over the weekend officers of the Nelson Police Department were called to assist a young adult who was holding a party in his parent’s home. With the help of social media and word of mouth, the party quickly swelled way beyond its intended size. The young person had the wisdom to recognize that the party was well beyond his means to control. Crowds of teens were coming and going,

spilling out into the cold night air and the music was blaring out into the neighbourhood. When police arrived they were met at the front door by the teen’s well intentioned, but misinformed friends, who happened to fancy themselves as “street lawyers”. The officers on scene prevailed until the complainant was located and interviewed. The complainant, who seemed wise beyond his years, discussed the matter with police and sought their advice. Choosing to ignore the advice of his un-retained “on site legal team”, the young person calmly and shrewdly shut down the party and ejected approximately 75 unwanted guests while police stood by. Within 30 minutes the situation was back under control and the party was shrunk to a manageable size. submitted by the Nelson City Police

During the last two weeks of January and in early February, the Kaslo RCMP has responded to a number of residential break and enter / thefts in the Balfour B.C area. The unknown suspect(s) broke into a number of residences, and summer cabins along the shores of Kootenay Lake. These breakins appear to be similar in fact and the suspect(s) are looking for and stealing similar items such as hand tools, chainsaws, TV’s, and small household appliances and electronics. The suspect(s) have not limited themselves to stealing small items and have in one occur-

rence taken a blue 2014 Polaris Razor, blue 2012 Polaris Outlaw ATV, and a 2003 Kawasaki KX65 motorcycle. The Kaslo RCMP are following up on a number of leads, and are specifically looking to speak to anyone who may have observed a light grey mid 2000’s Chevrolet ¾ pickup (with blue Polaris Razor in the back) travelling south on Busk Road between January 25 and January 29 to contact the Kaslo RCMP. Kaslo RCMP are reminding residents to report any suspicious activity and or vehicles in the area, and to ensure that their homes and out building are

secured properly. It is also recommended that residents mark valuable items for identification and where available, to record serial numbers and to obtain photographs of items for investigations and or insurance purposes. Kaslo RCMP is requesting the public assistance for information surrounding the thefts, or assistance leading to the location of the stolen property. Please contact the Kaslo RCMP 250353-2225 or call Crime Stoppers 250352-8288. submitted by the Kaslo RCMP

Opinion&Editorial My Opinion

Apps: Have it or Leave it? One of the more popular inventions of recent memory has been the invention of the “app”. App refers to many applications, from web apps to iPhone apps, they have revolutionized the way we use our time. Is that time used wisely though? Many mobile apps come from various sites or publications that enhance our daily lives such as apps from Google or the New York Times, but for every app that promotes productivity there’s also the oppo-

Letters and submission Policy and Guidelines

by Spencer Pollard

Letters: We encourage our readers to write to us. Please address letters meant for publication to the editor and send via email to express@expressnews.bc.ca or submit through our website at www.expressnews.ca We do not accept open letters. Letters must be short (200 words maximum) and to the point. We reserve the right to edit letters for taste and clarity, and the decision to publish or not to publish is completely at the discretion of the editor and publisher. All letters must be signed

site side of the spectrum. Other apps can either slow productivity to a crawl due to poor design of the app or the obvious connection to games. Games are also apps but odds are you won’t get anything done if you choose to go down that path. Apps are a mixed blessing, I personally get by mostly not using them butLevel if Difficulty you have the means to use them in a productive manner feel free. Just try not to click on Candy Crush Saga instead of the CIBC app. I know it’s tempting but you’ll thank me later.

Opinion&Editorial Commentary: Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping I had a chance last September to attend a lecture in Castlegar entitled, Unarmed C i v i l i a n by Alex Atamanenko, MP Peacekeeping: A new Strategy for a Nonviolent World. The talk sponsored by the Mir Centre for Peace at Selkirk College, was given by, Tiffany Easthom from Victoria. She is the Country Director in South Sudan for Nonviolent Peaceforce, and organization with the mandate to protect civilians and reduce violence in situations of armed conflict. In 2012, Tiffany was awarded the title, “Civilian Peace Keeper of the Year”, for her work in utilizing non-violent strategies to break the cycles of violence in war zones. In all honesty, on my way to the lecture at the Mir Centre, I was very curious to learn how it is that unarmed civilians are able to reduce violence, especially in volatile war zones such as in South Sudan. Tiffany explained how the Nonviolent

Peaceforce functions by working with local groups to foster dialogue among parties in conflict. They also seek the safe return of child soldiers and provide a protective presence in addition to offering safe spaces for civilians to develop local capacity for violence prevention. I asked her how it is possible for civilian peacekeepers to actually function in war zones. How could they possibly feel safe and were they not just human shields? In her response, Tiffany mentioned that they do a lot of work on the ground before actually going in. In other words, it is important to have the support of tribal chiefs, local politicians and others to ensure the safety of the unarmed peacekeepers. In fact, in 10 years of operation, not one civilian peacekeeper has died. This obviously shows that the idea of unarmed civilians bringing down violence has merit. One has to ask, what potential there is to reduce violence in the world if more resources were directed to non-violet means rather than flooding conflict areas with weapons? Nonviolent Peaceforce was formed at the 1999 Hague Appeal for Peace and emerged from an international movement

seeking alternatives to military conflict. There are currently member organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America. The peacekeepers represent more than 40 nations and undertake intensive Mission Preparedness Training and extensive in-country preparations. The approximately 150 people on the ground in South Sudan are a mixture of local peacekeepers as well as those from other countries such as Canada. Their task is to create lasting alternatives to war and to help establish conditions in which permanent peace can take root. What is interesting is that for the same dollars spent every 4 months by the world’s militaries, Nonviolent Peaceforce could send 2,000 well-trained, professional peacekeepers into a war zone for an entire year. As Mel Duncan, Founder of Nonviolent Peaceforce stated: “Nonviolent Peaceforce is a responsible approach to violent conflict, one firmly rooted in historical reality and emanating hope. By hope, I do not mean sentimental fantasies. I mean hard-nosed hope based on concrete, effective actions.” Let’s give peace a chance.

TheSurvey We’re all family

Family Day – Monday, February 10, a new BC Statutory holiday Monday is intended to celebrate the family, By Nelson Becker and it certainly asks the question: What is family? Family is definitely those who you are blood related to, and certainly how you were brought-up. Adopted or not,

you are still family. We’re also part of one big human family. In my own heart, on Family Day, I will celebrate my parents, who have passed, as well as my greater family of humanity. Even though I may not agree with everyone in my family when it comes

to political, social, and cultural topics, they are still my family and they are more important than these differences. My wish is that by thinking of family, we think about what connects us world-wide to each other. Happy Family Day!

What will you do on Family Day? take our survey below:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/fam_day

Last week’s suvrvey response: 1. Are the sidewalks of Nelson: 8.3% said clean as can be, 25% said filthy dirty, and 66.7% said could be cleaner 2. Comments and thoughts about our streets When did “SAND” become a rare commodity? The sidewalks, streets and building fronts all need a good scrub! it’s mostly cigarette butts It’s not just cleanliness it’s creeping shabbiness, filthy awnings, peeling paint etc. that’s most noticeable to me. You forgot the merchants in your

piece about the leaf blower cleaning the streets. There are so many clothing stores downtown and the entrance doors are not airtight.... the toxic dust comes in and settles on their merchandise. Although well meaning using a leaf blower was a thoughtless act in many ways, thank you for pointing it . It’s hard to keep the streets clean in the winter with all the sand, stones and snow, but I think they

do a good job of it. I get upset when I walk and people don’t clear the walks in front of their houses, though. It doesn’t matter if you’re renting the place, you still need to shovel the walk in front!! There is cigarette butts doggy doo and crushed granite and trash they should be washed also as the dust in spring is horrific and the alleys are disgusting and some business have there frontage there....

In Memory MAYA ELIZABETH MALOFF RILKOFF May 17, 1988 - January 28, 2014

It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our beloved Maya “Papaya”. Maya was born in Trail on May 17, 1988 to Katya Maloff and Sam Rilkoff. She grew up in Thrums, B.C. and attended schools in Castlegar and Selkirk College, where she completed her associate degree. Maya was accomplished in so many ways. She was in the Russian Bilingual program and in French Immersion. She was an honour roll student and played piano. She spent a wonderful

year in Thailand on a Rotary youth exchange. She spoke Thai fluently and also learned to play some Thai musical instruments. Maya was a member of the Vision of Peace choir and also of the Union of Spiritual Communities of Christ. Maya was also a gifted athlete who demonstrated talent from an early age. She had many athletic pursuits including volleyball, basketball, x-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, soccer, rugby, dance, running, biking and hiking. Maya had a great passion for travel. She traveled all over Thailand, to Russia and Germany after graduation, Quebec, Florida, California and Hawaii. Maya also loved to dress up and from a young age would switch outfits several times a day, some of which she sewed herself. On graduation, she was deemed most eclectic dresser. Maya was a free spirit that did not fit into any kind of mould. She was bold, cheerful, determined and strong-willed. She was always keen to try new experiences. She was a good public speaker and keen learner. She was an independent and creative thinker. She had a big and generous heart. She was a loving person who radiated presence. Maya always loved children and got along well with them. Maya always said she wanted to be a mom. This dream was realized on January 7, 2014 when Maya became a mother

to Charlene. For Maya, this was her greatest accomplishment and greatest joy. All she wanted to do from this point on was to spend time with Charlene. In her 20’s, Maya’s life took a different turn. Maya bore more challenges in her last 5 years than most of us will ever face in a lifetime. She dealt with those challenges by writing, singing and creating. She remained close to her family throughout. She loved to spend time with her Baba, Elizabeth Maloff, making pyrahi, helping with borsch, working in the garden, giving massages. She was very close to her cousins Tamara, Sasha, Robin and Alena and her aunt Vera and uncle Ceral. Maya is survived by her daughter Charlene, her mother Katya Maloff, her father Sam Rilkoff, step-father Poul Henriksen, grandmother Elizabeth Maloff, soul sisters Tamara and Lucy and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Maya was predeceased by her grandmother Ann Rilkoff and grandfathers Sam Rilkoff and Cecil Maloff. Funeral services took place at the Brilliant Cultural Centre on February 5, 2014. The family would like to thank Peter Zaytsoff for officiating the funeral and the community for the outpouring of support. Donations in Maya’s memory can be made to a trust fund for her daughter Charlene (Kootenay Savings Credit Union) or to the USCC publication, Iskra.
