Mungall Headed to Ukraine to support democracy

MLA Michelle Mungall has been selected to join a Canadian delegation headed to the Ukraine to monitor the country’s parliamentary elections slated for October 28, 2012. “Democracy is not something that can be taken for granted,” says Mungall. “Canada has a very strong and stable democracy. It is great to be able to share that experience, and support the development of free and fair elections in Ukraine.” Mungall was selected as one of the 500 election observers composing Canada’s contribution to a

large mission of over 10,000 observers. CANADEM, an Ottawa based NGO that is managing the Canadian mission, selected Mungall from among 2000 applicants based on her experience observing elections in the African nation of Zambia and her qualifications as an elected official in Canada. The mission’s objectives are to observe and report on whether the October 28 election results genuinely reflects the democratic expression of Ukrainian voters. A report released by long-term observers already

in the Ukraine has raised early concerns due to cases of vote buying and threats to candidates. The report is also hopeful; one section of it reads “free and fair elec-

Nelson Police Reports: threats, assault, theft and burns Nelson Police responded to 67 calls over the weekend. Of note: On Friday, Oct. 12, at approximately 1:25 in the afternoon, Nelson Police officers were alerted to a male causing a disturbance at the government building housing the Ministry of Children and Families and Mental Health. The male fled the offices on Victoria St and was located in the downtown area by Nelson Police officers, but took off running. NPD then received a call from the Nelson Courthouse of the individual causing a disturbance in the waiting area, confronting lawyers, again yelling and swearing. The male then ran down Front St. He was located in front of the Prestige Lakeside by a Nelson Bylaw officer who radioed in that the male was brandishing a knife and was making threats against him. Nelson Police officers were on scene as the male took a phone from the spa at Prestige Lakeside and ran towards the mall. He was intercepted by Nelson Police and ran into the field by the mall. At this time he was brandishing a knife and a pair of scissors. The male was strategically struck by a police vehicle to knock him down in order to disarm him and take him into custody. The

male was transported to Kootenay Lake Hospital to be assessed by a doctor under the Mental Health Act. He is facing 12 charges of threatening, causing a disturbance, and theft. On Saturday, Oct. 13, at approximately 2:56 am, Nelson Police responded to an assault at Ward and Baker Sts. The victim received severe facial injuries and was transported to Kootenay Lake Hospital by ambulance. Two suspects were identified and while one fled on foot, the other, a 21 year old female was taken in to custody. The 29 year old male suspect was located later. Both were charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm and released on a Promise to Appear with conditions and a first appearance in court set for December 4th, 2012. On Saturday, Oct. 13, at approximately 3:10 in the afternoon, Nelson Police were flagged down by staff from the Kootenay Co-op as a male had been observed in the store hiding meat on his person in order to leave without paying. The 43 year old male had fled on foot into the lane behind the store. Nelson Police officers intercepted the male in the 400 block Baker, north lane and took him into custody. It was

determined the male had been drinking and was held until he was sober, then released on a Promise to Appear with a court date set for January 8th, 2012. On Tuesday, Oct. 16 Nelson police officers came across a suspicious male in the downtown. When the officers attempted to engage the male in conversation, the male drove off, briefly evading police. The male, a passenger and his vehicle were soon located hiding nearby. After a brief investigation the male was issued a 24 hour driving suspension for driving under the influence of alcohol and his vehicle was impounded for 24 hours. Further investigation revealed that the male had, within his vehicle, a large quantity of money. The male told police that he had no bank account as his bank card had been missing since he was a child. The male is known to have links with a well known organised crime group. Police believe the male and his companion are involved in the hard drug trade. On Wednesday, Oct. 17 during the early morning hours the Nelson Police were called upon to assist a burn victim. The male had walked 30 minutes back to Nelson after burning his hands in his rural camp. According to the male he

was attempting to warm his hands by burning Methyl Hydrate fuel in a bowl . The fire he lit in the bowl quickly got out of control causing his rural camp to catch on fire. The male suffered serious burns to his hands and feet requiring medical attention. He was treated at the scene by Nelson Fire Rescue Service and transported to Kootenay Lake Hospital by police. The Nelson Police Department also launched an investigation into a theft of an antique firearm. A Colt 1883 pump action rifle, with an octagon shaped barrel is missing from Nelson. The firearm is quite rare and valuable. The Nelson Police Department is requesting anyone with information regarding this firearm to call the Nelson Police Department at 250 3543919 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-TIPS(8477). The Nelson Police Department are thankful for the caring citizens that often report suspicious drug activity They ask the citizens of Nelson to help protect our city from the ravages of these very harmful substances. If you see suspicious activity please don’t hesitate to call. submitted by the Nelson Police

Inspirelife’s cancer care program offers more events Dr. Teresa Clarke, lead physician, and Paul Paddon, program manager for InspireHealth BC, were in town on October 1st to speak to an enthusiastic audience about Integrative Cancer Care. Dr. Clarke shared with the audience her journey to InspireHealth and her realization that in her medical training very little time had been given to showing how to “get well”. Although not an oncologist, she has become a passionate advocate for people being involved in their own medical journey with cancer. InspireHealth has been in Vancouver since 1997 and has now expanded provincially with new centres in Victoria and Kelowna. New centres are planned to open in both Abbotsford and Kamloops and there is also InspireLIFE BC, the organization’s virtual centre. Dr. Clarke concluded the evening session with a reference to the adage,

“Listen to your Grandma.” Her advice included many ideas on what we now know is both sage advice and good practice in prevention of cancer or recurrence. “Eat your veggies; take time to relax; have a cup of tea and in particular green tea, one of the most powerful natural antioxidants known; avoid bad fats; cut back on your salt intake; cook your own meals so you know what is in them; avoid foods where you cannot pronounce the name of the ingredients; do not use non-stick cookware; get your exercise - at least 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise such as walking; get good, uninterrupted sleep in a dark room; sing, dance and laugh each day.“ “The cancer journey is not solely about surviving, it is about living and thriving.” If you are interested in being part of the two-day LIFE Program offered by InspireHealth on Thursday and Friday, November 15

Nursing workshop builds better approach to palliative care Rural nurses face vast challenges in delivering palliative care in remote areas. So UBC’s Okanagan campus and Selkirk College are combining forces to provide specialized education for nurses in remote areas of the Kootenays. UBC and Selkirk are hosting a two-day workshop on Wednesday and Thursday, October 24 and 25. The workshop is part of the Enhancing Educational Capacity for a Palliative Approach in Rural Nursing at Selkirk College’s Castlegar campus to better

prepare rural nurses in palliative care. Rural nurses have practice challenges when it comes to delivering specialized care in isolated settings where there are limited resources, says Barb Pesut, Canadian Research Chair in Health, Ethics and Diversity and an associate professor of nursing at UBC’s Okanagan campus.“Many are generalists and feel inadequately prepared when difficult pain management or complicated family issues arise in end-of-life care,” says Pesut.

Pesut’s research focuses on palliative care in rural areas. Findings show that an initiative of this nature is highly relevant to rural nurses. The workshops involve a two-day commitment and follow-up discussions. An honorarium will be provided to participants.

National Novel Writing Month is back in the Kootenay If on November 1 you hear furious keyboard pounding, fear not. It is the sound of nearly 200 Kootenay writers joining 250,000 people around the world in beginning an epic literary challenge: 30 days, 50,000 words, and one original novel. Why? Because November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, the world’s largest writing

event and nonprofit literary crusade. Participants pledge to write 50,000 words in a month, starting from scratch and reaching “The End” by November 30. There are no judges and no prizes, just a whole lot of fun. This year, 190 people have already signed into the Kootenay regional members group at www. nanowrimo.org. To help

these writers connect with each other throughout the month of November, Karina, with the help of writing pal Deborah O’Keeffe, will once again be organizing write-ins at coffee shops and libraries in the region. The Nelson Library is already signed on to host write-ins Monday and Wednesday evenings throughout November.

Heron sculpture to be “unveiled” Friday Friday, Oct.19, 2 p.m. at Lakeside Park Entitled “Heron’s Landing”, the 25-foot tall bronze sculpture that was placed along Nelson’s Lakeside Park Pathway this August will be unveiled at a public ceremony. Designed by West Kelowna artist Jock Hildebrand and gifted to the City of Nelson by developer Michael Lobsinger, the sculpture is valued at $210,000. Already dubbed “The Heron” by many locals,

the sculpture’s new home, on Heritage Inn Point, was selected by public poll. “The City is very glad to welcome Heron’s Landing to our waterfront,” says City Councillor and Cultural Development Committee (CDC) member Donna Macdonald. “It’s a beautiful sculpture, located in a beautiful spot.” submitted by the City of Nelson

An ingenious farce about the variety of personalities that congregate on a city bus, the Drama Desk Award-winning production by Axis Theatre Company features six actors playing over 60 larger than life characters who are sometimes goofy, occasionally elegant and always hilarious. Overall, this is a piece that celebrates the

theatrical. Sitting in a seat becomes a dance, silence becomes music and the audience is transported taken for a ride on THE NUMBER 14. Somersaulting old ladies, ballet-dancing businessmen and turbo-talking girl scouts all hitch a ride on one of Vancouver’s real-life bus routes and capture the absurdity and diversity of city dwellers daily commute. Combining commedia dell Arte, puppetry and music, THE NUMBER 14 is the one bus audiences will want to take again and again and again. And like commedia dell’arte in 16th century Italy, the performers use masks to create larger-than-life characters who are instantly recognizable as the people we see every day - the

wealthy and the destitute, the aggressive and the apathetic, strangers and lovers, the kind and the ����������������������������� cruel. “When we gathered together the amazing people who created this show twenty years ago, we never dreamed we would have the longevity to be bringing this unique vehicle to people all over the world.” says Director

Wayne Specht and original Director Roy Surette. Tickets are available online at capitoltheatre. bc.ca or charge by phone 250.352-6363. Tickets $35 Adult $28 Season package/ Full time Student.

REUBEN AND THE DARK acoustic ✥ folk ✥ singer-songwriter

“Bullock’s voice is intimate and immediate; note-perfect to deliver his testaments and make them resonate. He somehow manages to evoke some of the greatest folk singers without even once sounding imitative.” - FFWD WEEKLY “The fact that a virtually unknown singer can effortlessly draw comparisons to some of the biggest names in roots/folk music today speaks volumes, but the fact he doesn’t ever try to fit into an easily defined label or limit his creativity is what is truly staggering.” - HERO HILL

with special guest

“He writes sing-along anthems that ebb and flow like the ocean, highway dreams that feel like a big rig in the prairie night. His soaring harmonies have a joyous, almost worshipful feel to them. Hearing Reuben Bullock’s expansive vision of the human heart, you can almost feel the slow-motion wind in your hair, the honest sun on your skin.” - CALGARY FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL

Have you been bullied?

Click here or visit the link below

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/been_bullied

Last week’s survey responses: What percentage of your income do you spend on housing? 41-60% 21-40%

61-80%

0-20% IT’S well in excess of 50% when you also include other bills such as water, hydro and common house maintainence issues.

Publisher’s note Many years after I had graduated from high school, I was travelling in the Virgin Islands. As I approached the door of the disco, By Nelson Becker the bouncer looked at me and said, “Valley Stream”, which is where I grew up as a young child. And then he said, “Nelson Becker”. As I looked at him, absolutely nothing registered in my mind. He could see that I was struggling to identify him, and in his efforts to help me recognize him he

SURE wish this city had more affordable housing. It took me 3 years to find a good place with a decent landlord and I still pay 3/4 of minimal income on rent! TWO of us in a modest Nelson rental each pay 67-70% of our incomes for our rental. NELSON is very expensive to live. why is that? I just rent a room in a mobile home. Who needs a big grandiose house? MORTGAGE plus property tax equals 42% of my net income. Ouch. AT times I have spent as much as 80% of my income on housing in Nelson THIS should include heat and sewer/water utlitlies (or is that part of Property Taxes)

INCLUDE utilities, phone, water/ sewer/garbage, etc. HOUSING has always been expensive. People just have to make more money even if it means moving to another city. USED Mobile homes are affordable for the average person. WE are more fortunate than some. thank you WHY do we have to have two incomes in a 4 person family making $50,000 each just to survive? SAFE, clean affordable housing is difficult to find in Nelson. I worry that my children will be unable to live here. The lack of decent employment and affordable housing is a challenge for youth, seniors, single parents, low income earners and many others

Bullying is a problem we all must face

said, “Yeah, we used to beat you up all the time!” There was not one inch of malice in his voice, or retribution or guilt. He was totally unaware of the effect that being bullied had on me, both in the short term and the long term of my life. For him, being a bully was some kind of a game. I was not able to tell him how upset I was. I wasn’t able to be mad at him because those fights had happened so long ago and he looked truely happy to see me. I have now come to see bullying in myself and everyone. We all bully in one way or the other, just not to the

same extent. To be able to bully, we must see ourselves as above others. The reality is, none of us are better than anyone else. The child or adolescent bully has problems that need to be dealt with, not in a punative way, but it a compassionate way. The solution to bullying is to develop a sense of connectedness to each other. In this small world, there is no separation between any of us. When we hurt others, we are hurting ourselves. Let’s not be afraid to acknowledge our own imperfections so that we may move forward.

My Opinion

by Spencer Pollard

Weathering the weather Weather conditions can at times be less then optimal. The weather can go from warm and sunny to cool with showers in an instant. The weather is an unpredictable beast that may ruin your day if you don’t take some precautions. The measures needed vary by season and by weather but using common sense as well as some helpful tips will keep you safe. For starters, check the weather prior to leaving for work or whatever your plans are for the day. I don’t just mean look outside; either watch the Weather Channel or go online. Also make sure that if you plan on driving that you have appropriate tires and other precautionary measures set in place to make sure your trip is a safe one. With change in weather comes change in attitude and with change in attitude comes a change in judgement. Think about what you to and when you do it as the climate goes by its own accord and not by your own plans. Plan safe and you’ll be just fine.

Parent concerned about future of school buses

Dear Editor, After regular communication with the Director of Operations and the Superintendent for SD8 regarding the late arrival of bussed Trafalgar students I have come to the conclusion that more families need to be aware of some school transportation changes that may be implemented in the next school year. Out-of-catchment students from Slocan Valley and Bonnington currently being transported by school bus to Nelson area schools (Blewett, Wildflower, Hume, Trafalgar, LVR) may not have access to bussing as of next September. Mr. Brown (Director of Operations) said 100 students would be affected. French Immersion students from this area may catch the bus leaving Beasley if a seat is available (French Immersion is a District program and is not out-of-catchment). The decision to stop out-ofcatchment bussing in this area was made in 2009 unanimously by the School Trustees. Based on the expected $80,000 generated from the newly implemented out-of-catchment bus riders fee at $200 per student, SD8 estimated there would be 400 outof-catchment bus riders in the District. If the decision by the Trustees is to stop out-of-catchment bussing then 400 students or 8% of the 4800 students in the District will be without bussing to their current school. Sincerely, Wendy Cockburn
