Defacing the graffiti on Ward

Murray Kimber of Speedpro Signs is caught defacing graffiti on the utility boxes by the bus depot. The appliques to this and other sites around town are part of a series called “Ghost Buildings” and are being installed throught the City of Nelson Cultural Development Committee. They call attention to different aspects of Nelson’s heritage and add beauty to an otherwise bland object.

Aquatic Centre repairs underway With scaffolding completed, crews are now setting up a containment area in preparation to remove the false ceiling in phase two of the NDCC Aquatic Centre Repair / Renovation Project, the Regional District of Central Kootenay announced today. “It will feel great for all our staff to see the t-bar ceiling actually taken down because it means we’re one step closer to fixing the pool area and getting our community their aquatic centre back,” said Joe Chirico, General Manager of Community Services. This second phase of the project is expected to be done by late April. The RDCK has hired Phoenix Enterprises Ltd. to

undertake three main tasks: 1. Set up a containment area which includes enclosing the work area in plastic sheeting to keep lead paint and tiles within the construction zone. Crews will also construct temporary walls in the fitness centre to separate it from the pool viewing area during demolition. 2. Remove the ceiling according to WorksafeBC guidelines for removal of hazardous materials. Lead paint, a hazardous material, has flaked from steel girders onto the surface of ceiling tiles. The tiles themselves are not hazardous. 3. Sandblast the roof trusses so that they can be

repainted with lead-free paint. Removal of the false ceiling itself will cost close to $100,000, which is at the upper end of what the RDCK anticipated for ceiling removal costs in January of this year. Further repairs and renovations will include wall improvements to fully separate the fitness centre from the aquatic centre to ensure longevity of the building, as well as new paint, lighting, and acoustic treatments, bringing the total project cost including taxes to about $600,000. The RDCK Board approved the NDCC project budget on March 28. “Our

main criteria throughout this project are that the pool area needs to be safe, functional and up to modern standards for the coming years,” said Ramona Faust, Recreation Commission Chair and Director for Area E. “This facility has a lot of life left in it, and we want to see families, seniors and everyone in our community back enjoying the pool area as soon as we can.” Depending upon how work progresses, the earliest the aquatic centre could reopen is June 2012. The RDCK will continue to update the public regularly. submitted by the RDCK

Firefighters repond to smoke filled home on Gordon Road At around 6 p.m. on Tuesday Apr. 2, the Nelson Fire Department responded to a report of Smoke alarms sounding, house filled with smoke and nobody home. Both on duty members responded immediately with 2 additional members responding from home. Upon arrival of the first crew, smoke was observed throughout the house. A pot with food had been left on the stove unattended which had been removed and placed outside by neighbors. Home occupants arrived

just prior to the fire crew. The first arriving crew’s primary objective was confirming cause of smoke and using Positive Pressure fans to remove the smoke from the home. In all, two firefighters responded to the incident with one fire engine. Nelson Fire Rescue would like to take this opportunity to caution the public on entering smoke filled buildings.

Charges laid in St. Rita’s Church and vehicle fires Criminal charges have now been laid in last week’s arsons to St. Rita’s Roman Catholic Church and a nearby vehicle in Castlegar. An eighteen year old male resident of Castlegar, and a 16 year old female youth from Castlegar, have each been charged with two counts of arson in relation to these fires. The female was taken before a Judicial Justice of

the Peace where she was released on strict conditions. The male has been remanded in custody since his arrest on Thursday, Mar. 28, appearing in Grand Forks Provincial Court Tuesday, Apr. 2. An incident such as this causes fear and unrest within any small community and places tremendous demands on the police to act quickly. Community cooperation was crucial in advancing the

investigation. This investigation was lead by the Castlegar Crime Reduction Unit and included resources from the Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment General Investigation Section, members of Castlegar Detachment, as well as resources from other areas of British Columbia. Everyone involved in this investigation did an outstanding job of

quickly gathering evidence to allow for arrests to be made and charges laid within a very timely manner. Over the past number of years the RCMP has developed a very strong investigative capacity with respect to serious criminal offences and this incident is a testament to that fact. The investigation into the garage fire is still ongoing. submitted by the Castlgar RCMP

On Sunday, Mar. 24 at approximately 8:30 p.m. a family was startled when their home suddenly shook. The homeowner went outside to investigate and found a car resting against the house and a trail of damaged behind. He went to check on the driver, an 18 year old local male and had him exit the car while police were called. The Nelson Police arrived and took the male into custody as it was immediately apparent that he was under the influence of alcohol. The male became quite belligerent to the officers but was quickly transported to NPD cells. He was released the following morning and is facing charges of impaired driving and driving with more than 80Mg% alcohol in

his system. It is very lucky that no one inside the home, a pedestrian walking by or the driver was injured. The male is scheduled to appear in Nelson courts June 11 to answer to the charges. On Thursday Mar. 28, Nelson Police executed a search warrant on a residence in the 900 block of Carbonate St. after a long, involved investigation into drugs being dealt from the residence. A 61 year old male is in custody facing drug trafficking and possession charges, and in addition, weapons related charges, appearing in court on Tuesday, Apr. 2. On Friday, Mar. 29, a 47 year old female was also arrested in relation to this investigation, and is facing

drug trafficking charges. She was released on conditions with a court date set for May, 2013. On Sunday Mar. 31 at 8:25 p.m. a 22 year old local male went into the 7-11 to purchase a lighter. When he could not produce ID upon demand he became angry and grabbed the clerk by the shirt. The males’ mother, who was with him pulled him away and they both left the store. The Nelson Police were called and identified the male, known to them, using the store video. He was located at his home and arrested for assault. He will appear in Nelson Courts June 11 to answer to the charge. He is forbidden to enter the 7-11 until that date. In the early morning

hours of Wednesday, Apr. 3 staff the Kootenay Lake Hospital reported a male lying on the ground in their lower parking lot. The Nelson Police attended and found a 23 year old local male lying on the cold concrete ground. The intoxicated male felt he had a lot to deal with in his life and that was the spot where he wanted to be. The temperature was as low as 4 degrees overnight and he had been there for about 5 hours. As he would not move on to a warmer, safer location and he was visibly shivering he was arrested for public intoxication and lodged into cells until sober enough to properly care for himself. He was released without charges. submitted by the Nelson Police Department

Kaslo RCMP Cpl. Shaun Begg says yet more of the property stolen during Break and Enters involving 4 unoccupied buildings in the Johnson’s Landing slide area has shown up, this time on the front steps of a local church. Other property, believed to

have been stolen from residences in an area still deemed to be unstable from an earlier fatal mudslide some eight months ago, turned up about three weeks ago, piled neatly at the side of an area road. “Perhaps my initial conjecture about a guilty con-

science at work here is correct” says Begg who notes the symbolism of the articles, two pieces of computer equipment, being left at a Church. “Whatever the motivation for the location of the recovered property, it always nice to return property to its rightful

owner“ says Begg who notes that the recovered equipment will first be examined by the Forensics Unit. No arrests have been made to date and the RCMP investigation is continuing. Tip line: 1-800-222-8477 submitted by RCMP

What do love and dust bunnies have in common? dr. science Christine Humphries

Ah, yes, it is that time of year again when many of us feel compelled to do some serious Spring cleaning. As you vacuum into the depths of your household, you may discover a new pet: a dust bunny! Dust bunnies are clumps of particles of matter. These clumps are made entangled particles of hair and skin, fibres

from clothing or carpets, pet fur and dander, and dust mites. YUCK! The reason these particles clump together is due to static electricity. Static electricity is an electrical charge that accumulates when two objects rub against one another. In other words, it is electricity produced by friction. Static electricity is formed from the exchange of particles of atoms. Atoms are made of a nucleus which has neutrons and protons and orbiting particles called electrons.

Each particle of the atom has a different electrical property: protons have a positive electrical charge, neutrons have no charge and electrons have a negative charge. While neutrons and protons are held together tightly, the electrons on the outer surface of the atom can move relatively easily, depending on the type of atom, from one atom to another. One way of moving an electron from one atom to another is to rub two objects. The contact between the

Dr. Science is in real life, Dr. Christine Humphries, a molecular biologist

objects causes electrons to move from one surface to the other. The net result is that one object loses its negatively charged electrons and becomes positively charged and, conversely, the other object gains electrons and becomes negatively charged. The transfer of electrons, or the accumulation of static electricity, causes the objects to be attracted to each other because, as in love, opposites attract. So just think of your dust bunnies as a romantic grouping of everything yucky in your home!

Saving an old garage My old single car garage is leaning and I wonder if it’s salvageable. Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

Check around the sole plates at the bottoms of the exterior walls. If these walls have had garden soil up against them for years there may be extensive rot damage, which makes the project marginal. However, if there is little or no rot (or you’re prepared to do serious structural rot repair) then I think the building is probably worth saving. Here’s another point to consider. Many of these old

garages in back lanes could not be built in the same locations today because zoning bylaws usually require at least five feet (1.5 metre) setbacks to rear lot lines and these garages often sit on rear lot lines or into public lanes. Don’t tear it down and you can repair and maintain it indefinitely even though the zoning bylaw may not permit your garage in that location today. Often, old garages start to lean because they lack enough diagonal sway bracing. Push the building back to vertical using leverage

from adjacent structures, trees or temporary diagonal braces staked to the ground. Once the building is vertical and re-leveled, install diagonal sway bracing on the inside of at least three walls. The longer the bracing is the more effective it will be. On a typical wall the most effective braces run from the top right and top left corners of each wall corner and meet at the middle of the bottom plates. Your roof may also need additional support. Fortunately, the same principles of diagonal bracing

apply only this time the bracing is called ceiling joists and collar ties. You can install ceiling joists at the points where the rafters meet the top plates of the walls. Nail the ceiling joists to the rafters and the tops of the walls. If your garage already has ceiling joists and the roof is still sagging, install second horizontal members (collar ties) half way between the ceiling joists and the peak of the roof. This will definitely increase the strength and stability of your roof by “splitting” the rafter span.

Commentary: War Tax Resistance by Madelyn MacKay

I want to pay for peace. At tax time we have an opportunity to send a power-packed message, one act with multiplying benefits for our present and future. We can take far-reaching action for the security of the environment, economy, and humanity. If you also want to do more to increase security and reduce your carbon footprint, you can cut your funding to big carbon polluters. For example, the F-16 killing machine uses more fuel in one hour than an average car owner consumes in two years. Others use even more! Especially damaging are emissions at high altitude by the world’s military aircraft in daily exercises and warfare. “…Militarism is the most oil-exhaustive activity on the planet, growing more so with faster, bigger, more fuel-guzzling planes, tanks and naval vessels…” and relies on our willingness to let our taxes foot the bill. (http://www.truth-out.org/ news/item/3181:the-military-assaulton-global-climate) Repairing the economic effects of the trillions spent on military security, we need a broad consensus here on

big spending. What would you like to fund with our biggest military procurement ever--for warships? Research continues to show that other sectors are more efficient at creating jobs than the military. We could choose to spend this $40B for a National Green Jobs Strategy, a National Affordable Housing Strategy, a National Early Learning & Childcare Strategy, a Kelowna Accord for First Nations, a National Municipal Infrastructure program, etc. Senator Colin Kenny, a former chairman of the Senate defence and security committee, emphasizes, “Issues are going to be settled in the Arctic through diplomacy and with lawyers. We’re not going to go to war up there.” Converting military spending into green jobs and a healthier environment reduces our biggest security threats. (See Demilitarize. ca and The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems.) Create jobs where workers are not disabled physically and with PTSD, and dramatically reduce rape, sex slavery and trafficking. Limit proliferation

of weapon use and the glorification of single-solution violent behaviour which make possible domestic violence and school shootings. Decide whether the military is protecting your interests. New options are emerging to providing weapon-free, bully-free security at one tenth of the cost of the military. Canada could regain international respect as a bold, peacemaking nation with well-trained, weapon-free Canadians assisting in conflict zones around the world in ways that reduce violence and protect civilians. See NonviolentPeaceforce.org. Check in with your conscience (and ConscienceCanada.ca peace tax return info.) about specifying your desire to pay for peace, reallocating to peaceful projects your portion of tax dollars conscripted to join the military. Hear more about this, Wed., April 10, 7-9pm at Expressions. Participate in Earth Day and the Global Day of Action on Military Spending as we consider security benefits of alternative job creation using the $1.8 trillion annual global military expenditures.

Letter to the Editor: Not My Prime Minister Dear Editor, It is evident that voter suppression techniques were used in the May 2011 federal election in which The Harper government won a majority as a result of actions that are in violation of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Regardless of who’s responsible the end result is the same, an unfair election. I have lost faith in our government. I am not alone in my feelings. Last summer I rode my bicycle over

4000 km in the name of democracy. (The Bike Ride for Democracy) Along the way I searched for people who voted for the conservative party of Canada. Despite my efforts to have a conversation with a “Harper supporter” two months of meeting hundreds of people I could not find one. The apparent lack of support for Harper’s government is encouraging. This life changing event inspired me to work harder, to join my com-

munity in saying, “Harper is not my prime minister, step down now.” We will be gathering Saturday, April 6, 11:30 a.m. at Nelson City Hall For more information, contact https://www.facebook.com/pages/ Kootenay-Direct-Action-CommunityKDAC/635847583108201 Sincerely, Garrett Hoover Submit your Letter to the Editor at www.expressnews.ca/letters.html

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note

Voting age should be changed

We must go through a process of lowering the voting age in this country. At present in order to vote in a provincial election By Nelson Becker the person must be 18 years old.. Society has changed greatly in the last decades. There is no valid reason why the voting age should not be lowered. If you were to say young people are not responsible or not knowledgeable, I would respond with; are all adults responsible or knowledgeable? Should we have a test for those things before you vote? Young people are knowledgeable and responsible; any change in society such as lowering the voting age must be in a well-thought-out

process. A good beginning would be to lower the voting age one year every four years until we got to 16. Which at this point in time, would be an appropriate voting age. I believe if we gave real responsibility to our youth they would react in a responsible way. As long as we treat them as disenfranchised possessions we will get the action of a disenfranchised person. It took us awhile to give women the vote and the arguments against giving women the vote were the same against giving youth the vote. Our voter turn out is getting smaller. If we enable our youth to vote our turn out would increase. Countries that have a voting age as low as 16 are: Brazil, Austria, Cuba, Nicaragua, Ecuador.

My Opinion

by Spencer Pollard

Work & You: Finding Meaning in the Mundane

Jobs can come and go, but what type of job is most fulfilling in terms of finances and general well being? A good example could be a dental hygienist, is has a short work week but a high pay rate, making it an ideal job for someone who wants to have a life outside of their job. If that doesn’t suit your fancy, there is always ways of finding a better future for yourself. Look for something that makes you happy; I can’t stress that enough. I enjoy writing these articles among many other things but at the same time there are times when it can get

stagnant and uninteresting in which case I generally try to write about something fresh or reinvent my writing style. Find a job that will benefit you not just in the short run for years to come, many jobs we have now could be obsolete within the next few years so having a future mentality will guide you well. Work is our life blood. It pays our bills and gives us pleasure, but it also gives us pain and stress. Find something you can do well and for a long time, just make sure you spend your time doing something of value and you’ll be okay. After all, you only live once.

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

The voting age in Canada is 18. Should it be different? 14, 15, 16, 18,19, 20, older?

What age do you feel is appropriate in Canada to be able to vote?

Click here or visit the link below

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

Last week’s survey responses: What Provincial Election issues are most important to you? Please rate 1-8 in order of importance: Comments 1. health care 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

education jobs environment resource management poverty and affordable housing roads and other infrastructure other: Economy, Local Economy,

Child Care, Senior Care, and Election & Campaign Reform (self-identified by survey respondents)

I am excited that we might be electing Green MLAs in BC in particular Southern Vancouver Island. They’re reporting that 2 may be elected as Greens are at 18% in that region. It’ll be nice to have Greens with NDPs for a change. We need jobs to keep our children and grandchildren in the Kootenays. Of our seven grandchildren who are of age to enter the work force, 70% have had to leave the Kootenays to find steady work. We need an innovative, aggressive MLA with a business background

to facilitate job creation in Nelson/Creston!! As a college student, I support the Rock the Vote BC campaign because it focuses on issues that are important to me; restoring and increasing funding to Post-Secondary Education, improved transit and opposing tankers and pipelines. Affordable childcare is another important issue to me. Employment and economy drives the ability to afford and improve the social programs and educational improvments needed.
