Local artist to create bridge railing Local artist Brent Bukowski has been chosen to create and build a new railing across the Baker Street Bridge in the newly-coined Railtown District. Bukowski works primarily with found objects such as metal and glass, the majority of which have been reclaimed from forestry and mining regional landfill. “I am honoured to have been chosen for this opportunity” says Bukowski “ This is my�first public art commission, something I have been working towards for a long time, and that it happens to be in Nelson, where my children were born, is such a bonus.” An independent jury, formed by the Cultural Development Commission, spent much time deliberating. “The chosen design is an innovative use of recycled components that speaks to both historic Nelson and the creative culture of today’s Nelson.”, says Steven Kaup, jury member and Principal of Studio 9 Architecture + Planning. This railing is a first step in implementing the City’s Downtown and Waterfront Master Plan, which recognizes the historical importance of the railroad in Nelson by renaming the lower Baker Street area “Railtown”.

Opinion&Editorial VISITOR APOLOGIZES TO KIDS ON BIKES Dear Editor, On Labour Day I visited Nelson, by motorcycle, from Idaho, and had an experience. As I approached an intersection, distracted by the distance I had yet to ride with the sun already setting, I saw kids waiting on bikes on either side of a cross street, and an oncoming pickup truck stopped at the intersection. I slowed down, looked for a stop sign or light, and rolled on through, then noticed the man in the truck giving me an exasperated look (like “what is wrong with you?”).

Slowly I realized I had broken the cultural norm of stopping to let kids on bikes cross, which actually would be expected in my town (Sandpoint) as well. I am sorry to have endangered kids by being out of step with the local driving culture. My country can look pretty aggressive and selfish at times, and I am sorry to have added to that perception. Really I would like to live in a more considerate culture - that is why I was in BC! Daniel Rial Sandpoint, ID

The Kootenay Express Update Building Community Since 1988 554 Ward Street Nelson, BC V1L 1S9 250-354-3910 Nelson Becker, Publisher

This week’s EXPRESS UPDATE was produced by: Nelson Becker The Kootenay Express Update is produced by Kootenay Express Communications Corp. in Nelson BC. The purpose of the Update is to provide a media for the Nelson

Robin Murray

and area community. If you do not wish to receive the Update, simply send an empty email to unsubscribe@expressnews.ca You will receive a confirmation email

Frequently Asked Questions

How did you get my email address? The emails that we use for the Kootenay Express Update are emails of people who have done business with the Express Newspaper or are emails we have received by personal request to be on our list. What is the purpose of the Kootenay Express Update? The purpose of the Kootenay Express Update is to provide the service of a community newspaper with such features as an events calendar, classifieds, opinions, diversions, for the greater community of Nelson and area. How can my friends receive the Kootenay Express Update? You can send your friends our email and they can respond with the word “subscribe”, or “newsletter” or “update”. What is the privacy policy of The Express? We will never share your email with anyone outside of The Express. We feel

you are part of our family. Is The Express open for Editorial Submissions? Yes. We also want to support the nonprofits of our community and we welcome their editorial submissions. What happened to The Express Newspaper? The Express Newspaper existed as a print version for 22 years, but it could no longer compete against the big corporations for advertising. We are committed to being of community service and we are now in the process of creating the Kootenay Express Update as an alternative to the print copy. There are obvious benefits to an electronic Express Newspaper. We don’t have any printing costs or post office distribution costs. There is less restriction on space. Recipients can print out the pages that they so desire. There are also some disadvantages. Not everybody is internet connected. Reading off a screen is a different

Erica Fletcher

experience than reading off of paper. The Express Update seems to me to be a valuable way to publicize my business. How do I place advertising in the update? We are still working on this because in setting a price for advertising we want to assure ourselves, and you, that you are getting the correct value for your dollars. We encourage you to get in touch with us so that we may begin this discussion with interested local businesses. How does the Kootenay Express Update support itself? At the moment, that’s a very good question. The Kootenay Express Update lives on a subsidy that it is receives from me, Nelson Becker. In the future, the Update will have to support itself. We are in the process of determining advertising value, as well as looking at other methods of raising the necessary funds.
