Nelson Hospice offers grief support group Thursday, Jan. 24, 12-2 p.m. Multipurpose Room, 333 Victoria St., Second Floor, Nelson, BC Hosted by trained Nelson Hospice volunteers, Grief Support Group topics will include: the needs of a mourner; why grieving is different for everyone; common myths about the grieving process; resources and tools for finding hope and healing our hearts. There will be time for group discussion and sharing, as

well as a exploration using art therapy, journaling, walking and meditation. Preregistration is required for this group. After the death of someone dear, people often experience a period of time of intense grieving. As a society, we associate sadness as a common response to death, but there are many

other emotions. People might also experience feelings of loss (what do I do without that person?), helplessness (where do I turn?), confusion (why did this happen?), anger (unfinished relations), uncertainty (new roles and expectations), anxiety (am I going crazy?), and/or happiness (loved one is now at rest after a pro-

longed illness). The Grief Support Group offers a safe and supported environment to share these normal feelings of loss. For more information or to register, contact nelsonhospice@netidea.com, nelsonhospice.org, or 250352-2337 submitted by Nelson Hospice

Comforting massage for slide victims by Robin Murray

On Dec. 22, 2012 a group of eight massage volunteers, ranging in age from 14 to 81, visited Johnsons Landing to share comforting massages with the survivors of the July mudslide. The mudslide claimed the lives of several members of this tiny community at the end of Kootenay Lake and left many more homeless or without safe drinking water and sanitation. To bring some Christmas cheer to this still suffering community, the massage team delivered a gift bag for each participant receiving massages in the village containing gifts from local Nelson merchants and homemade cookies. Jim Mainland, a piper from Meadow Creek played Amazing Grace on the deck

announcing the beginning of the massage memorial “It was a time not only for the residents of Johnson’s Landing to enjoy life and get relaxed, but a time for the people giving the massage to come together and have a good time. I definitely think that people of all groups and ages should participate in a massage memorial. I had a wonderful time and hope to help out others in need,” said 14 year-old volunteer Emily Hoffman. The event began a collaboration between Lila Taylor, a Johnson’s Landing resident and her massage instructor Christine Sutherland. Janet Mayfield did the organizing the assembling of gift bags and Susie Grimble co-ordinated the massages. The volun-

Forestry conversation heats up at Conversation Café Saturday, Jan. 19, 7 p.m at John Ward Fine Coffee at 503 Baker St. For some Kootenay residents, forestry represents an important boost to our region’s economy. For others, forestry brings to mind habitat loss and watershed contamination. Is it possible to have healthy forests and a sustainable forestry industry? That’s the question on the table at West Kootenay EcoSociety’s event. The

second Conversation Café in a series of seven will ask local forestry and environmental experts to weigh in on how forestry practices have changed over the years, and to look at some new models of forestry. Guests include Greg Utzig, who has developed a model for how climate change will affect our forests, and Rachel Holt, a

member of the BC Forest Practices Board. Joern Wingender will explain the Harrop-Procter Community forest model, and Jesper Neilsen of Selkirk College will help us understand how the forestry system works. Herb Hammond of the Silva Forest Foundation will also discuss his groundbreaking work on the services that healthy forests provide.

After brief discussions with the guests, the audience will be invited to join the conversation. The conversation starts at 7, p.m. with limited seating. Coffee and snacks will be available for sale, and a $2 donation is requested. For more information, visit www.ecosociety.ca. submitted by the West Kootenay EcoSociety

On Friday Jan. 11 at 3:50 a.m. Nelson Police members were conducting post bar closing patrols in the downtown core. A male and a female were seen loitering near a running vehicle that was parked outside one of the bars. Members approached and spoke with both and determined they had been consuming liquor that evening and were likely not capable of safely operating motor vehicle. It was also discovered

that the car was registered to the 34 year old male and the members let them know it would be a good choice to not drive the car home. The male agreed. Members continued their patrols and a short time later the vehicle was gone. A quick drive to the owners address found him trying to park it as members pulled up. He blew a fail on the roadside screening device and faces sanctions under the Motor vehicle Act.

Tickle tickle tickle, I’m going to get you! dr. science Christine Humphries

Are you ticklish? To most people, the sensation of being tickled is both positive and negative; they smile and laugh but also show signs of distress such as defensive and withdrawal movements. For example, my two-year old giggles and smiles when tickled but also yells “no!” and tries to wiggle away. Is she enjoying it or not? There are two types of

tickling, the light featherlike tickling, called knismesis and the heavy laughinducing tickling called gargalesis. Knismesis is a widespread response in mammals and probably originated as an important survival response for reacting to creepy crawly bugs on skin. Gargalesis however is less widespread a response and seems to be limited to primates. Although we can feel knismesis if we lightly touch our own skin, we cannot give ourselves a Difficulty heavy tickle. Some scientist believe that, like

Sudoku Classic

the startle response, gargalesis is a simple reflex that requires unanticipated stimulation. One study showed that if the brain is sending a self-tickle command, there is less activation of brain signals than when someone else is tickling. In essence, the brain can somehow cancel the tickling sensation if it has prior knowledge of the action. So why do we laugh when tickled by others? The neural pathways involved in tickling Level - Easy include touch and pain sensors which may acti-

vate the part of the brain that elicits the fight or flee response. However it is unclear why this response also involves laughing and smiling. Some scientists have suggested that the evolutionary function of tickling may have been to promote play-fighting to improve combat skills. The laughter and smiling would encourage the tickler to continue tickling while the discomfort of tickling would encourage the ticklee to learn how to protect vulnerable parts of Difficulty sk9E000035 his body.

12 Angry Men to raise money for animal assistance program Friday, Jan. 25, 8 p.m. at the Church Hall (corner of Kootenay and Victoria) The first round of Nelson Play Readings is drawing to a close with the final scheduled reading being presented January 25th. 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose promises to end the series on a strong note, as the popular script has been re-produced all over the world as well as adapted into several feature films. The reading is directed by Bessie Wapp and will feature a veritable who’swho of local readers; Phil Sarsons, Richard Rowberry, Michael Graham, Brian d’Eon, Stephen Fowler, Michael Pearce, Ray Stothers, Bradley Roulston, Roger Ley, Mackenzie Hope, Geoff Burns, and Timothy Jackson will all be participating.

12 Angry Men famously tells the story of twelve jurors deliberating over the outcome of a trial. While eleven of the jurors are convinced that the defendant is guilty, one juror is not in agreement. The play centers around this juror’s attempts to sway the deeply held prejudices and intractable personalities of his fellow jurors. Raising questions of the nature of justice and the reliability of human judgement, 12 Angry Men is a timeless classic that continues to resonate today. “The series has been so successful that we have definite plans to carry it on”, says Richard Rowberry of The Nelson Theatre Company. “We’ve raised several hundred dollars

My Opinion

Friday, Jan. 18, 2013

by Spencer Pollard

The True Cause of Violence There really is no main central cause of violence today. If anything it’s really the glorification of it in the media. The media finds it far more interesting to report violent crimes then human interest stories and it’s never something I understood. The world isn’t really as scary a place as the media may make you believe, it seems almost every day the news shows mostly nothing but violent crimes and shootings. Why do they do this? Well to keep an audience of course, there’s an audience who enjoys watching those

type of stories whether they enjoy them or they just feel sorry for those involved. Violence has always been a problem and it’s up to us to fix it, there really isn’t a simple answer just avoid violent tendencies whenever you can. I highly doubt anyone reading this will commit some sort of crime of that nature, but the way the world is , violence stems from anything. Violence is a substantial part of human history and it won’t change any time soon but having the foresight to know what your doing could prevent something serious.

Spencer Pollard is an young man living in Nelson BC with an interest in digital arts and writing. His ideas are of benefit to all of Nelson, and to stroke his abnormally large ego

Life expectancy of a cedar shake roof Home Front

We recently purchased a 30-year-old house with a cedar shake roof. We are trying to determine if we should budget to replace the roofing or not because we’ve heard a lot of conflicting estimates on the life expectancy of cedar shakes. What would you advise?

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon cedar its reputation for lon-

Unfortunately, the average life expectancy and predicted complete failure of cedar shakes is difficult to determine even with a visual inspection for signs of deterioration. However, here are a few theoretical factors to be considered when estimating the life expectancy of your cedar shake roof. Cedar is rich in oil content. This oil gives

gevity in wet environments. Old growth cedar usually has higher concentrations of oil than second and third growth cedar. Therefore, shakes split from old growth wood often have significantly longer life expectancy than shakes from new growth wood. Traditionally, folks expected that old growth cedar shakes would protect them from the elements for 50 to 70 years. This oil-rich

attribute, combined with their rustic weathered appearance has long been their appeal to many builders and home owners. For second growth cedar shakes, their life expectancy can be less than half that of the original old growth materials. Determining if you have old or new growth cedar shakes can be tricky. A general rule of thumb is there is not much old growth cedar to be purchased today. So, it is

likely that newer cedar shake roofs have less life expectancy. However, there may be old growth cedar shakes mixed into the bundles that were installed on your roof. So, it is fair to say that individual cedar shakes on your roof will likely age and fail at significantly different rates depending on the oil content of each unique shake. If your roof is more than 15 years old, expect occasional spot repairs to keep it watertight.
