Shannon Lyon

Shannon Lyon is a Canadian musician and singer-songwriter. Born in Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada, Lyon began his musical career in Kitchener, Ontario in the early 90’s forming his first band Strange Days. “When I hear Shannon, I hear the rhythms of the Midnight Cowboy, the harmonies of an earth-bound angel, the acoustic guitar that knows the pain of a heart, the steel guitar that stirs the lonely and restless lovers. But most of all I hear the voice that echoes Earle, Farrar and Buckner, a voice that haunts you like a heavy fog on a barren field on a cool October morning.� (Says Bob Egan -Blue Rodeo, Wilco) http://www.shannonlyonmusic.com https://www.facebook.com/ events/615905575158889/

Karoshi inspired an ambitious and exciting work by Vancouver dance sensation Shay Kuebler

The Japanese phenomenon of karoshi – ‘death by overwork’– depicts the clash between extreme societal pressure to conform to the collective conscience and the group path; and the repression of personal fulfillment. KAROSHI is a thrilling and visceral theatrical experience, full of maniacal energy and black humour. Kuebler’s dynamic choreography blends the lines of martial arts, dance and theatre yet has the versatility to work in specific techniques where he has choreographed musical theatre, jazz, hip hop, tap and contemporary dance performance works Click here for trailer http://shaykuebler.tumblr.com Tickets: http://capitoltheatre.bc.ca

MISSING PERSON: Jade Giesen The Nelson Police Department needs the public’s assistance to help find 47-year-old, Jade Giesen of Nelson, BC. On April 6, 2014, at 10:15 a.m., Giesen was last seen walking on a trail at Central School, on Stanley Street. Ms. Giesen is familiar with and regularly visits parks, beaches, and wooded areas. Nelson Police will continue searching the local area today. The Nelson Police Department is asking if anyone sees

Ms. Giesen in the area to call the police immediately. Nelson Police Department: 250-354-3919. Jade Giesen is Caucasian, 5’4”, 115 lbs, with blond long thick dreadlocks (picture to right). She is wearing a waist length green coat; an oversized purse over her shoulder covered in white goat hair, pants, and blue runners. submitted by the Nelson Police Department

Nelson City Police news: dogs, open liquor, and fighting On Thursday, April 3 the Nelson Bylaw Department attempted to identify a male contravening the Bylaw regarding dogs in the downtown core. The male refused to identify himself to the officer and walked away. NPD members were called and located him. The male was detained for obstructing a Peace Officer and was identified. He was allowed to proceed with a warning that failing to provide his identification to a Peace Officer is a criminal offence. He did receive a ticket under the Bylaw for having dogs in a restricted zone. On Thursday, April 3 at 3:30 p.m. an abandon car was reported in the Rosemont area. NPD members discovered the vehicle had recently been reported stolen, and that the inte-

rior had been set on fire. The investigation is ongoing. If anyone noted any suspicious behavior or activity in the 400 Block Beasley St area over that last several days please contact the NPD at 354-3919. On Saturday, April 5 at 2:10 a.m. NPD members noted a young female walking in the 400 Block Stanley St with open Liquor. After detaining the young lady and obtaining her name the member felt things were not adding up. He and other members questioned her identity while searching police systems. It was soon discovered that the female has been misleading and was arrested for obstructing a Police Officer, as well as multiple liquor offences. She was released and faces significant fines

Burning Period Approved By Fire Chief Nelson Fire Chief Simon Grypma has approved a two week burn period beginning Saturday April 12 and ending April 26; excluding Easter Sunday. This burn period is for the purpose of reducing difficult-toaccess yard waste such as tree clippings. Those wishing to burn must have a valid permit and follow the Corporation of the City of Nelson Bylaw #3241, specifically Section

5.5 Yard Waste Burning. Permits must be acquired in person, at the Nelson Fire Department, located at 919 Ward Street, and payment for the $10 fee can be paid by cash or cheque at the time of issuance and proof of fire insurance. The Fire Department continues to encourage home owners to bring yard waste to the Lakeside Drive Transfer Station, which charges $5/load up to 2.5

under Liquor Control and Licensing Act. The arresting officer spent some time with her and explained the consequences of attempting to obstruct a Police Officer in the course of his duties. On Sunday, April 6 at 2 a.m. a fight broke out in the 700 block Vernon St between two females. As one male tried to become involved another took offence and assaulted him. Staff at the nearby Pub called 911 and NPD attended. One male had a swollen and cut face, all other parties had left. The offender was known to witnesses and the investigation is ongoing. submitted by the Nelson Police Department cubic metres ($50/tonne for large loads; $25/tonne if chipped).

Opinion&Editorial My Opinion

How to not blow a Paycheck It’s payday and you can’t wait to blow that paycheck, but should you? No, no you shouldn’t. I am however required to fill at two hundred-word quota so I’ll go into more detail if that little bit in the beginning wasn’t quite motivating enough. The only instance where I would see blowing your paycheck as a positive would be on a necessity such as paying the rent or the electric bill. I will admit to occasionally splurging a paycheck on something such as a game console or a

laptop but outside of the very occasional splurge I really don’t recommend it. Putting a portion of it, say 30% of it into savings will do you good in the long run. That is to say if you can actually afford it. If you are in a living paycheck-to-paycheck situation, well there isn’t much you can do but save what you can. Prioritize your spending. Cover the expenses, put a chunk of your wages into savings then feel free to splurge how you see fit. Money CAN give you happiness; you just need to be wise with it.

Opinion&Survey Parking Meters are not Heritage Parking meters in the City of Nelson are By Nelson Becker both an enhancement to businesses, as well as a detriment. Part of the reason for having parking meters is as a financial resource for the city bank accounts. Another reason is for parking meters is to discourage parking-spot “hoarders.” The issue of parking spot hoarding can be resolved by our bylaw officers actively chalking tires vehicles, without the need for parking meters. We can still have

a one or two hour limit on spots this way. Parking meters are not only revenue generators, but also have costs too. The elimination of parking meters would also eliminate the need to count the money they produce and the bureaucracy that comes with dealing with the parking meters. People are always going to complain about there not being enough parking spots in Nelson, but really what they’re complaining about is not being able to park in

front of the store they want to shop in. We do have an existing parkade that is underutilized much of the year. There is also sufficient parking a couple blocks away. If we do continue with having parking meters, we should designate the money generated towards more encouragement of non-polluting vehicle transportation, such as bikes and walkways. We should be looking at other communities with successful downtowns that do not have parking meters and see how they do. If they can, we can too!

Do you agree? Parking meters should be eliminated from downtown Nelson

Survey

Last week’s survey response:

Do you agree? Nelson’s waterfront walkway should be paved.

YES 60.3% NO 30.7% Comments:

Yes, but not necessarily pavement…it could be same as the Lakeside walkway, which has mostly held up pretty good. Must be wheel chair accessible. Plain black paving or heritage look with coblestone brick? Ballpark costs? It doesn’t need to be paved. It is nice to walk on natural ground rather than pavement all the time. Rocks can be taken out of spots that are rough for mobility scooters. Nelson dog lovers will have no place to take their dogs for a dump. While pavement is one option, other treatments should be considered such as crushed/compacted gravel, or even concrete. A gravel path similar to the John’s Walk section of the pathway would be best. It’s a hard enough surface for strollers & walkers, and easier on the joints than a paved “sidewalk”. In addition, the wider gravel surface avoids having users step down off a narrow sidewalk & sprain their ankles or fall. We have enough cement sidewalks: flat gravel pathways are safer & usable by all! It’s a pathway, not a walkway. Walkway implies that

arrogant pedestrians can walk four abreast and hiss at passing cyclists with righteous indignation (speaking from experience). Pave paradise, put up a walkway? Is paving more environmentally friendly than the current surface? If not, then keep as is. NO....because if people like to jog along it, I think it would be easier on their bodies, (knees, ankles, hips) to NOT have to run on pavement. An accessible walkway should be a priority and perhaps part of an age-friendly and/or handicapped-friendly initiative that would be eligible for special funding. Most importantly, it should be accessible year round. Last winter, we tried to walk on the path in Lakeside Park and it was just treacherous - not plowed or sanded at all. This is just not acceptable. The City of Nelson needs to do a better job of looking out for the health and safety of its citizens! Would be lovely to have old fashioned-style lantern lighting, as they do in Dahab, Egypt. Their waterfront walkway is also wide and paved with stone (some decoratively), and accessible for those with mobility issues. The lanterns often provide a photo op,

and are non-intrusive to the starlit view of the sky. It should also be kept plowed and sanded in the winter. I like to be able to run on the dirt, easier on the knees For Wheel chairs, strollers, rollerblading!!!!!! How can we take this beyond a survey? I walk there every day and have done for 20 years - if I want to walk on pavement, I could walk on any street in Nelson. re the park portion of the walkway - for people like me who have difficulty walking, paved concrete would be much harder to walk on. Best would be wood chips. What we have right now - please take care of the potholes! Gravel embedded in the ground (as it is on the existing section of John’s Walk) drains better, and also provides safer footing with no pavement edges to slip off of in winter. I enjoy walking on compact dirt and gravel... pavement is so damn hard on the legs. We have enough of pavement. Let the earth breathe... it has enough pavement on it. It would help keep the weeds from overtaking the path...further narrowing it.

Paving would require tons of upkeep and wouldn’t be the best aesthetically. Keeping it looking nice with crushed rock and landscaped would be best. No need for more cement... but please plow the path in winter. Pavement is not good for pets. The entire walkway should be lit. Although I agree that the path way should be accessible for all I personally don’t want to be walking on pavement. Also, pavement invites much more bike traffic which makes it unpleasant for those wanting a relaxing leisurely stroll. If paved I think we need a separate bike lane for sure. Maybe there could be sections paved (in the more populated areas like in front of the beach and soccer fields, and leave some sections unpaved and for walking only? Absolutely! Think of Vancouver’s or Nanaimo’s waterfront walkways, allows for multiple uses including roller blading. Cyclists and bladers on one side, walkers on the other... works great there! The walkway will become a drawing feature for locals and visitors to Nelson. It needs to be done correctly.
